Listen: Matt Hodges releases new single ‘Outlaw’

The UK singer-songwriter’s new song is out now.

West Yorkshire singer-songwriter Matt Hodges has released his new single ‘Outlaw’.

The follow-up to ‘Proud To Be Me’, ‘Outlaw’ was written one night after having a conversation about authenticity and being true to your values and life experiences. 

Hodges recalls: “I was having a conversation with a radio DJ about my songs sounding too ‘American’ and he suggested I write a song about my life. The song is a true representation of what I like doing. ‘Fishing in the morning, drinking in the afternoon, stay up late with my guitar.’ I do all of this on a regular basis and I’m proud to say this song came from the heart, laying bare my everyday experiences. The irony being, instead of sounding less American country, it makes me sound even more American country!”

‘Outlaw’ was recorded, produced and mixed by Lewis Fowler at Summerland Studio with some of the track also being recorded with Jake Stanton at Big Fig Studios.
