Matt Corby has returned with a new single, ‘If I Never Say A Word’, his first original release for 2020.
‘If I Never Say A Word’ is Corby’s first new single since last year’s collaboration with Kwame and Triple One, ‘So Easy’. The new track was co-produced by Corby and Matthew Neighbour, best known for his work with The Avalanches and Missy Higgins.
An official music video has been released alongside the track. Directed by Madeline Johnson and produced by Coralie Tapper, the video sees a dancer perform “inventive choreography” against the Byron Bay hinterland backdrop.

In a statement, Corby said he started working on the track before the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.
“Work started on ‘If I Never Say A Word’ pre-lockdown, and I was originally going to put it into storage until a whole new record was ready, but with the extended period off the road I was able to dive in and bring it to light,” he said.
In addition to the new track, a music video for ‘If I Never Say A Word’ will premiere on the singer’s YouTube channel at 2pm AEST today (August 14). The clip is directed by Madeline Johnson and produced by Coralie Tapper.
Matt Corby’s last full-length release was ‘Rainbow Valley’, released in November 2018. In addition to ‘So Easy’, he also worked alongside Tash Sultana last year to release ‘Talk It Out’.
