Matt Puckett: “Insomnia” [PREMIERE]

Posted by on Jul 28, 2020

It’s crazy to think that it’s already been three years since Mother Falcon co-founder Matt Puckett left Austin and relocated to Brooklyn. Continuing his ongoing collaborations with children’s songwriter Tim Kubart, this Grammy winner’s gone on to provide original scores for indie films and webseries, as well as his own 2019 EP, Heartbreak Summer. But in this past year alone, rather than spending a season of uncertainty adrift in New York, Puckett kicked off 2020 with a three-day recording stint right here in his hometown.

This Is Ending is a hard left turn from Heartbreak Summer in terms of tone, production methods, and lyrical subject matter, with Puckett exploring loss, acceptance and gratitude across seven songs with the help of longtime friends in the backing band and behind the mixing board. This Is Ending drops August 28th, and today Matt Puckett’s kindly shared its lead single with us for a KUTX-clusive premiere, one that’ll keep you up at night with its catchy foundation, “Insomnia”!
