Matt Costa’s long-waited Yellow Coat is out today, and he’s celebrating with a live-streamed release concert tonight at 6pm PT. Invites to the show are available to anyone who orders a CD or LP + ticket bundle. Customers who already pre-ordered will be sent a private link to the performance.

Produced by Alex Newport, Yellow Coat is a masterpiece of heartbreak, equal parts lost Sixties AM radio hits, folk-pop beauty and dark night of the soul music. Taking inspiration from Van Gogh’s Dear Theo along with John Steinbeck’s A Life in Letters, and stamped with the honesty and intimacy of something not meant to be heard, Yellow Coat is the product of Costa penning letters to himself about the end of a relationship, brimming with bittersweet narratives of love’s power to both soothe and devastate.

“But when the songs open up like blossoming flowers… the melancholy mood becomes sweeping and almost epic.” – American Songwriter (9/9/20)
