Beneath These Fireworks? is Matt Nathanson?s highly anticipated new album and his first full-length release since 1999. It features twelve songs including live staples ?I Saw? and ?Sad Songs? as well as new versions of old favorites such as ?Lucky Boy? and ?Little Victories.? ?Beneath These Fireworks,? is Matt?s major label debut and for the occasion he invited a few of his esteemed friends to help out including Glenn Phillips and Emm Gryner on backing vocals, guitarist David Garza, drummer Matt Chamberlain, Lifehouse bassist Serge, and of course touring companion and cellist, Matt Fish. The album was produced by Ron Aniello (Guster, Lifehouse, Barenaked Ladies) and mixed by Mark Endert (Fionna Apple, Vertical Horizon, Gavin Degraw). It is Matt?s most fully realized recording and well worth the wait. THIS CD WILL BE RELEASED ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 14th 2003.
