Matt Corby is set to release his debut album Telluric on 16 March.
After signing to Atlantic Records and spending a few years in Los Angeles recording his debut album, the Australian artist decided to completely scrap the completed record and start all over.
Speaking out about his hard decision, the 'Monday' singer said: “I recorded an album two years ago that I didn’t like. For a lot of reasons I wouldn’t release it. It took me a year and a half to clear my head of everything that happened, accept my failures, reboot and have the balls to do it again.”
Corby has also just released the first single from Telluric, a psychedelic rock trip titled 'Sooth Lady Wine'. The Australian artist is also looking to venture on a full UK tour in March 2016, stopping alongside several venues including London's Roundhouse, Manchester's Albert Hall, and Southampton's Engine Rooms.

Within a press statement, Corby's journey to the new album is explained: "The album itself is a perfect reflection of Matt’s state of mind during the making of this record – starting out frustrated and angry, and working through his demons with stony grit and determination. Delving a little deeper, and a little darker, Matt spent the past few years in home studios all over the world, ending up in a cottage in rural NSW Australia where he wrote, recorded and produced the album."
Tickets for the new tour will be available for pre-sale on Tuesday 15 December at 9am, and on general sale on Wednesday 16 at 9am. For further information and tickets, go here.
