Scott Matthew - New album
posted at 03/19/2013
For Scott Matthew the definition of the title „Unlearned“ is to put something learned out of your mind. „You have to make an effort to forget your usual way of doing and considering something, so that you can learn a new way.“
He always loved to reinterpret the songs from his favorite singers, writers and composers and add them as encore to his setlists. This is still part of his concerts and the audience is looking forward every night to this "personal hitparade".
The collection of his personal hits on the upcoming album like Harvest Moon (Neil Young), No Surprises (Radiohead), To Love Somebody (Bee Gees) or Love Will Tear Us Apart (Joy Division), reinterpret only with his mesmerizing, heart-melting and captivating voice and the Scott Matthew typical instrumentation of piano, strings, guitar and ukulele, all have been put through his process of unlearning. They all have been unlearned and they stand as new and undiscovered entities.
Scott Matthew says: „The challenge is to gently remove preconception of what you have learned these songs to originally be.“ He also invited some real surprise guests as duet partner.
"The first problem for all of us, men and women, is not to learn, but to unlearn." - Gloria Steinem
