get lost visual ep on billboard

Stephen Daw

It’s hard to do what Beyoncé did with her seminal 2016 album Lemonade. Producing a video for every single song on an album, and having them flow into a streamlined story is a feat all its own, and one many artists would shy away from.

That’s what makes pop singer Matt Palmer’s new EP Get Lost even more impressive. The Los Angeles based singer-songwriter has released seven tracks and seven music videos over the course of the last two months. Each video builds on the story of a relationship, starting with its early stages and culminating in its collapse.

Being the case that we first wrote about triple threat singer, songwriter and producer Matt Palmer back in 2010, I think we are more than due for an update on what is currently going on with the Los Angeles based artist. I was actually, planning to write about the new track “Solo Act” today but I have had another update come in regarding the release of a video for the song “Get Lost“, so I figured, I would give them both a mention.
