Shortbus artist Scott Matthew's album out in Japan!


● Lirico (Inpartmaint Inc.)

世界中に熱狂的なファンを持つカルトムービー『ヘドウィグ・アンド・アングリーインチ』の監督ジョン・キャメロン・ミッチェルの最新作として昨年日本でも公開された『ショートバス』。そのテーマソング『In The End』を含む5曲をサウンドトラックとして書き下ろし、自身の役でも映画に出演しているシンガーソングライター、スコット・マシューが、9/12に初の日本盤アルバムをリリースする。


"Shortbus" (2006), released last year in Japan, was written and directed by John Cameron Mitchell as a daring follow-up to his cult film/theater hit "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" (2001). Those who saw "Shortbus" will recognize both the face and voice of Scott Matthew, the American singer and songwriter who made musical magic on the film's highly-lauded soundtrack (5 songs including the title theme "In the End") and appeared as himself in an onscreen role. The tremendous news is - Matthew's first album will be released here in Japan on September 12th!

Matthew's album features 12 songs - 5 newly arranged gems originally from the "Shortbus" soundtrack, along with 7 brand new and deeply touching musical explorations of sorrow and loneliness in life.

Matthew, an out New York-based artist, has let it be known that the music on his album was greatly influenced by his experience in a romantic break-up - and he asked his ex, Cameron Dailey, for the artwork shown on the album cover.

This melancholy album is perfect for those chill moments of autumn reflection...
