LOS ANGELES, CA (September 15, 2023) — Flagship Hard Working Record Company artist Dylan Matthew releases his newest track today. The punchy, alt-leaning banger, “FYTY,” is available now on all platforms ahead of the Platinum-selling artist’s 9/28 EP, no rain, no flowers.
At his freest, both as a songwriter and as a singer, the track blends rhythmic beats with his adroit songwriting prowess, as he finds the silver lining in heartbreak and betrayal.
“’FYTY’ was written after I moved to LA and I found out my ex was dating the guy she cheated on me with. Even worse, I found out it had been going on a lot longer than I thought,” Dylan explains. “‘FYTY’ was my angry moment of telling her that she sucks, and what she put me through sucked, but now I’m so much better off. It’s a cathartic release of saying ‘fuck you,’ but thanking her because what she did to me ended up being the best thing for me in the long run.”
For Dylan Matthew, everything comes back to storytelling. The Southern California native began harnessing his love of music before he could speak— a love that would eventually push a then-18-year-old Dylan to publish covers and original songs online.
Following his 2016 inaugural EP, Over You, listeners would see Dylan go from strength to strength. He scored his first Platinum-certified single with the viral dance hit “Love Is Gone,” garnered millions of Spotify listeners and over 750K feverish TikTok followers, and awed crowds while performing at Coachella, Lollapalooza, and a sold-out headline show at Avalon Hollywood in LA, his proudest moment to date.
Now, seven years after his debut, Dylan is embracing a new chapter of his history — one that was born amid an intense and tumultuous break-up that forced him to disconnect from the life he knew, look inward, and rebuild his future. At the center of that personal journey is Dylan’s new music, chronologically telling a story that explores the break-up from beginning to end. Equal parts vulnerable and assured, the new material firmly establishes Dylan as an artist with a deft touch that crafts powerful indie pop-infused music while honoring his greatest strength — telling his story through universal narratives tied together with introspective and infectious lyricism. It’s music that is primed to fully present Dylan at his best: an artist who, at his core, creates music that helps his listeners find hope.
