The enamoring 12-track set arrived Friday via Columbia Records. Including his previously released standout "Found What I've Been Looking For," the album showcases the 23-year-old singer's burly vocals as he explores some very personal themes of sobriety, love and depression.
"I wanted to create a classic-sounding album that hopefully lasts for years and an album that doesn’t sound like anything else right now," says Grennan of the record. "It’s got orchestras, brass, choir and I took influences from old soul to hip-hop, blues and pop so it’s just a big sounding record. I can’t wait for people to hear it."
Lighting Matches was produced by Grammy-winning producer Fraser T Smith, known for his work with Adele and Stormzy, as well as Dan Grech, who has produced for the likes of Liam Gallagher, The Killers and Lana Del Rey.
