Song of the Day: “Falling In Love (with My Best Friend)” by Matt White

Today’s song is “Falling In Love (With My Best Friend)” by Matt White. This song is off his sophomore album It’s The Good Crazy. This song is a pop-fueled love letter showcasing his talented vocals.

Working with a dedicated team of producers, including David Baron and Henry Hirsch (Madonna, Lenny Kravitz,Mick Jagger), Matt took an old school approach to his new material. For much of the album, Matt, Baron and Hirsch retreated to a church in Woodstock, NY to record on the same board that Led Zeppelin II was recorded on and tracking to what might be one of the last 3M tape machines left in existence. Breaking away from modern trends, Matt recorded the entire album on analog tape, allowing any and all happy accidents to stay in the songs. “All of the albums I love were done that way. With tape, there’s a depth in the sound wave that you can’t capture digitally. There were no computers, no Pro Tools and no room for error. If I screwed up, it’s on there,” says Matt.

Since debuting in 2007, Matt’s music has been featured in numerous films, TV shows and commercials including What Happens In Vegas, Shrek The Third, McDonald’s, The Hills, Brothers and Sisters, and One Tree Hill. The singer/songwriter has toured and performed alongside everyone from B.B. King and Sheryl Crow to John Mayer and Counting Crows. In addition, his “Songs Of Freedom” became the theme for Gap’s “Vote For” campaign, airing on a special electoral episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show. His debut album Best Days also hit #4 on Billboard’s New Artist chart and received acclaim from RollingStone and Details. Selling 400,000 digital downloads, he’s cultivated a diehard fan base that has remained loyal since he first hit the music scene.
