this post has a purpose.

if i had to shamelessly promote any one thing 'til the day i die... this would be it. i am so proud. not only because he's one of my favorite humans. even more, because he's a freaking talented human. you will be missing out if you don't know about this one thing. with that being said... "now you're free." the newest full length album from my darling dear, matthew mayfield.

when he sent the album to me pre-release he said, "i hope some of them take you somewhere." they did. i send the same sentiment to you, friend and reader, that matthew sent to me. in particular get ready for "ghost" with bo rinehart of needtobreathe. holy moly! there's other guest vocals from joy williams and john paul white of the civil wars respectively. oh, and then there's another new track-- "a cycle." i can't handle it. the boy is so raw, and so real. it's beautiful. there's just so much good, people.

you can pre-order the album here. however, the album will officially be released April 5th on iTunes, amazon, and other select music retailers. do. not. miss. this. release.
