In a recent interview with Mike Ragogna, Matt answered some burning questions about song meanings and a little bit of everything else. Its a great interview.
MR: I think “You In The End” might be the best track on the album and a potential single as well as a country hit, although your label isn’t really marketing you that way. Lyrics such as “All I am is just a traveler with dirt on my hands, all I have is dust in my pockets and you in the end” and “Summer to Fall, we’re wrapped up in blankets, we’re wrapped up in everything we fear, it’s all what we make it” are simple yet really strong.
MH: I can’t take all the credit for that one. I wrote it with Sara Bareilles, she has that hit “I’m Not Gonna Write You A Love Song.” My producer also produced her album, so he had her come into the studio one day for us to play together and see what would happen. We ended up writing “You In The End,” and she’s a really cool songwriter, I just love the way she writes. Things flow from her in a cool way, very naturally.
“This isn’t the end. We’re just getting started. The road stretches on and on and on, we’re moving again…” – “You In The End”
Edge of A Star caught up with Matt last night in DC and asked a few burning questions of our own. Coming next Sunday
