Indie dynamic duo Matt and Kim have just released their new single “Let’s Go” today (June 25) on Soundcloud and iTunes. “Let’s Go” will be the first single from their upcoming album Lightning, which will be released on the Fader label later this fall. The album was recorded and produced in their native Brooklyn in NYC and will be the band’s first original music to be released this year. Following the track’s release, the duo will be playing select summer events across the US including a slot at the Catalpa Festival in Randall’s Island in New York.
Last year was a banner year for Matt and Kim, culminating in a spectacular closing hometown show at the Hammerstein Ballroom on New Year’s Eve following a previous 16 months of touring around the world and releasing their wildly successful album Sidewalks.
This year, the twosome kicked off 2012 huddled in their home studio recording and tracking Lightning and planning their next stage show.
"We spent the winter here in NY locked in our place on Grand Street," said Matt Johnson of Matt and Kim in the press release. "When not watching Game of Thrones or Downton Abbey, we were self-producing and recording our new albumLightning. We are SO proud of each and every one of these songs that we are going to roll out a few of them over the course of the summer. So here it is, the first song from Lightning, titled "Let’s Go". Just for us, put this on your iPod, get in the car, roll your windows down, and turn your stereo up!"
