New album out now

Highs & Lows

The rollercoaster of life is sweeping across the mountaintops and further down into the valleys. We remember the most intense moments along our path no matter what, and if everything works out well, sweet music arises just like it did for Mattias Lies.

Back in 2018 while Mattias was touring in North Carolina he became inspired to write the songs of his 5th studio album “Highs & Lows”. The Appalachian Mountains and the warm-hearted people of the south made an impact on him, which in the long run resulted in the making of the new album. Mattias started off recording the album live in the old rectory of the little Swedish village of Bingsjö and during the spring of 2020 some friends contributed nicely to the result. The house is also known as the previous home of the well-known Swedish fiddle players Nylandspojkarna, who emigrated to the USA in the early twentieth century. Mattias Lies and co-producer Jens Larsson produced the new album and it’s scheduled for release on June 30th 2020.

 

Singer-songwriter Mattias Lies has made an album that looks back on what has been and it breathes optimism and belief in the future. 

 

“Thanks to the difficult times that I’ve been through, I have learned a lot. It may sound strange, but there can be a delicate boundary between what you experience as a curse or a blessing, although it may only be understood after you have gone through the dark times. Personally, I have had to descend into the valleys to reach the heights. This album contains different reflections from those stages of my life that have now turned into music."

 

Through the years the music of Mattias Lies has received a lot of attention from Swedish radio stations and television channels. If you’re lucky enough to have experienced Mattias Lies live, then you’ll definitely want to see him again.

The new album ”Highs & Lows” will be available on Spotify, ITunes/ Apple Music, and Deezer etc. The music agency Dalapop is releasing the album on their label Valley Music.

New single "Maze of Blues"

Mattias Lies new single “Maze of Blues” is a hymn to the paradoxical awakening of our true selves. The message of the song becomes relevant in this pandemic era as we question our values and beliefs.

Back in 2018 while Mattias was touring in North Carolina he was inspired to write the songs of the new album “Highs & Lows”. Mattias Lies and co-producer Jens Larsson produced the new album and it’s scheduled for release on June 30th 2020.

”The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.” These words are usually credited to the acclaimed genius Albert Einstein. Mattias refers to the quote while talking about the new single:

”We’ve created a society where we’re running in a hamster wheel. Our ambitions are too high and prevent us from connecting to a deeper emotional state. We keep forgetting about this but sometimes, just like it occurred to me in the song, a reminder pops up unexpectedly. I believe all dreams convey a certain message from our subconscious mind. My dream revealed a hidden longing to be accepted for who I am. It took a lot of emotional courage because the insight required me to leave the past behind and to be open and vulnerable. I strive to keep it this way but too much work makes me dizzy I guess.”

Through the years the music of Mattias Lies has received a lot of attention from Swedish radio stations and television channels. If you’re lucky enough to have experienced Mattias Lies live, then you’ll definitely want to see him again. And if you haven’t caught the act yet – get out there, you’re missing something special!
