Having released his new album, Ghost, on Thursday 14 November, Matthew Mole is excited to bring his new music to fans at Parklife: Music in the Park Festival on Sunday 1 December.
The musician, who hails from Fish Hoek, is no stranger to the Parklife music and food festival stage. Having drawn huge crowds to the Johannesburg and Durban legs of the show, he now returns to Cape Town with the festival. He says he is eager to show the crowds what his new album has to offer.
“I’m super honoured to be at another one. I’ve got a whole bunch of new plans for the live set. All the quirks will be ironed out before the show and it will be the first time playing this new set in Cape Town,” says Matthew.
He adds: “Most of the prep for these upcoming shows is making sure that the new songs are flowing amazingly in the live set. I can’t wait to try out all of these new songs at the shows! I’ll be playing 25% my first album, 25% my second album and 50% my newest album Ghost.”
Before the release of the album, Matthew debuted his singles – Kilimanjaro, Let Me and At The Corner – which received a lot of love worldwide. As for the rest of the songs on the album, he says he can’t wait for people to hear what he’s been working on.
“I’m super excited, but at the same time, I’m very nervous to hear everyone’s feedback. I can’t wait to hear how people are resonating with the new songs!”
Parklife returns for the fourth time to Muizenberg Park in Cape Town. With a line-up of performers who include Jeremy Loops, Sean Koch, Australia’s Sons of East, the festival is sure not to disappoint holiday-makers, say festival organisers.
Matthew says he is very excited to share a stage with Sons of East. “I’ve been loving their music for a while now and can’t wait to see them live for the first time!”
