Mat Kearney's New Album Young Love Review

Young Love, the third album of singer-songwriter Mat Kearney was released on August 2nd, 2011. Centering around the theme of "young love", the new album produces "a pastiche of honest, heartfelt, and hypnotic stories that'll make you move your feet and put a smile on your face."

The album's first single "Hey Mama", initially released in May as a digital download, was quite a hit on the US Chart. The song describes the first meeting between Kearney and his new wife at the Anthropologie store in Tennessee where she was working.

Here's a list of the tracks:
1. Hey Mama
2. Ships In The Night
3. Count On Me
4. Sooner Or Later
5. Chasing The Light
6. Learning To Love Again
7. Down
8. She Got The Honey
9. Young Dumb And In Love
10. Rochester

I was provided with a free copy of Young Love CD for review. I'm not familiar with Mat Kearney's music, but I really enjoy listening to the songs in this album. All written by Mat, the tracks present a unique blend of various genres of music, such as hip hop, soft rock, rap, and pop. Most of the tunes are rhythmic and exciting while Mat's voice sounds laid-back and distant. The last single "Rochester" has a flavor of folk music that's distinct from the rest of the album. It's gentle, slow-paced, and a nice conclusion of the album. Love it!

Hope you'll get a chance to listen to the new album on CD or on iTunes. I think Mat's music is perfect for our road trip on Labor Day weekend.

Starting September 14, Mat is embarking on his concert tour with nearly 40 shows in US and Canada. Tickets are available for purchase through various online agents. Find out more about Mat Kearney on this official website or Facebook page.
