Just before Christmas, Matt Cornell returned to Love Hz Studios, where he recorded his latest album Matt Cornell, to film some intimate live performances.
Today he's released the first of those performances, with the song 'What Brothers Do.'
The performance also features Cornell's producer Matt Fell, plus Mike Carr and Andy Horvath.
"From the very first time I heard 'What Brothers Do' I fell in love with it. It totally resonated with me," says Matt Cornell
"Adam Brand introduced this song to me while we were killing some time on a long drive while on tour. A few days after hearing it, I put it in my set and the audience response was instant. People were asking me after shows if they could get a copy of that ‘brothers’ song, so I thought it was a no brainer putting it on this album," he says.

Most recently, Cornell has worked with Adam Brand who is full of praise for this new album.
"Aussie country fans are about to find out what all the buzz is about because this
album [Matt Cornell] is full of great songs!" says Brand.
Having already established a reputation as an impressively energetic and engaging live performer, who undertakes the rarely seen practice of playing bass while performing lead vocals, the release of Matt Cornell sees him make a very impressive music statement as a recording artist and songwriter.
Now, as an artist who has found his true home in country music, Matt Cornell takes to the genre's core values with beautifully written new songs and uniquely sublime vocals on this album.
"This album has been almost two years in the making, I've given it my all, it's a great representation of who I am as a person and as an artist. I've collaborated with some amazingly talented people and I'm so proud of this record. These songs mean a lot to me and I hope they touch you in some way," says Matt Cornell.
Cornell established a strong creative bond and friendship with APRA nominated and Golden Guitar winning writer Mike Carr during the album's song writing process. This partnership became one of the key components of Matt Cornell. Other song writing contributors include hit song writers David Lee Murphy, Anthony Smith and Jeffrey Steele.
Matt Cornell is officially released on September 5, 2014 through WJO Distribution in conjunction with Bolder Music Australia.
