Matthew Sweet // New Album + Show at HiFi

 photo MSweet_TD_zpsy2bp6fk9.png

After taking six years off, Matthew Sweet has kicked it into gear. Last year, he released a 17-song double album titled Tomorrow Forever via his own Honeycomb Hideout label, and followed it with a large tour, skipping Indianpolis. He returns, this year, with a new album titled Tomorrow’s Daughter, and an extensive tour, this time including Indy and a date at our venue, the HiFi.

Sweet believes he is in the midst of a musical and career renaissance…

When I was young, the artists that I really admired were the ones who always found a way to keep making music and expressing themselves. To me, those guys were the real artists, and I’ve tried to hold on to that attitude in my own work. This feels like a really good time for me, and I feel lucky and grateful to still be doing what I love to do. When I meet young people and they ask for advice about a career in music, I always say, ‘Do music because it’s what you love to do, and because you’d do it no matter what happens.’I’ve tried to keep that attitude about it, because that’s always worked for me. I just try to keep doing my thing and keep believing.
