Matt Andersen Signs with True North Records for New Album, Books Canadian Tour
Rootsy East Coast resident Matt Andersen has released his last few albums through Busted Flat Records, but he's now inked a deal with True North Records. His first album for his new label home will arrive on January 28 in the form of Weightless.

The album was produced by Steve Berlin, a Los Lobos member who has produced the likes of the Tragically Hip, Faith No More and Deer Tick. Recording took place at the Sonic Temple in Halifax, NS.

A press release describes Weightless like this: "Dusty with some shimmer, the new album is infused with Andersen's unparalleled dexterity on the guitar, cut with moments of songwriterly reflection."

Before the album comes out, Andersen will spend this November in Europe and the first few weeks of 2014 on a U.S. tour. Once the album is out, he'll return to Canada for an extensive outing that will take him from coast to coast. See the hefty schedule below.
