The other day, this announcement turned up on my Facebook wall:

“i have taken it upon myself to release the album Matthew has been dwelling on for the past 3 years

in a long-drawn-out debate regarding how and when to release it, time escaped us, and the initial pride of his (and his mates’) hard work swiftly dissipated into a query of whether or not this album continued to represent him. i will admit that his voice, his guitar skills, and even his writing style have evolved immensely since this recording – but i think it’s still something the world deserves to hear

you’re my favourite artist. don’t kill me”
