Matt Shapiro unveils single "The Addict" from upcoming LP "Fade In"

Matt Shapiro unveils single "The Addict" from upcoming LP "Fade In"

With three full length albums and a fair share of movie placements under his composer and musician's belt, Matt Shapiro cannot not be called a staple of the NYC scene. He recently unveiled The Addict (streaming below), the first single from the upcoming EP Fade In, scheduled for an early March release. Mostly electronic, The Addict represents - according to Shapiro himself - a return to a more disciplined and stripped down approach to writing, after the epic and layered sound of his latest LP Metaphysical. However, after the initial bars (which are stripped down indeed), The Addict builds into a rich and warm sound conveyed by luxurious, '80s inspired synth pads and by Matt's soulful tenor and spot on falsettos, which sing about the best addictions of all - Falling in Love.
