Meg Mac to Join Jacob Banks on Upcoming Tour Dates

Mac is touring in support of her new album Matter of Time released September 16.

Meg Mac will Join Jacob Banks as his special guest for the upcoming North American Tour kicking off in San Francisco on September 28th. Mac is touring in support of her new album Matter of Time released September 16. Dates below.

"I wanted to just start again and do everything without compromise," states Meg Mac of the game-changing personal switch-up that led to Matter of Time: the singer's highly anticipated third album, and a record that builds on Mac's award-winning foundations and sends them to new places of clarity and ambition. In early press reviews, 'Matter of Time' has already been praised as "her most compelling body of work yet" and "a grand statement" by Rolling Stone Australia.

With a third album recorded and primed for imminent release at the beginning of 2020, Mac had what she now describes as "a bit of a meltdown". She scrapped its lead single two weeks before release, and with it the rest of the body of work - a bold move towards a creative process without compromise.

Needing some space to regain perspective, Meg moved out to Burrawang, a remote village in the Australian countryside, and began work on Matter of Time. As opposed to her pre-countryside scrapped album, the most important thing this time around would be "to mean every word I sing, to not have anything in the back of my head when I'm singing where I don't totally love it."

The album's title track is the only song that survived the kill of the original album. Written by Meg and co-writer Sam De Jong (Jacob Banks, Muse, Maisie Peters), Matter of Time shows strong evidence of the cracks of confidence that had almost derailed Meg. The track begins with a lament - "I'm not great and I hate that I can't say it" - before swelling into a rich, soaring yearning for solace.

"This song is the only survivor from the album I threw away. It's the most important song on the album and sits right between the old and the new. I find it spooky because everything I wrote came true, it was only a matter of time before I was going to snap. Somehow I knew I was about to reach breaking point and then I did." explains Meg.

As original author of every song on her album, Meg selectively sought co-writing support to refine and heighten her storytelling in writing partners Noah Cyrus' frequent collaborator PJ Harding, the previously mentioned Sam De Jong and with 'Chandelier' co-writer Jesse Shatkin. Behind the desk came production duo The Donuts (Kendrick Lamar, SZA, H.E.R); playing with male vocal choirs, charmingly minimal instruments, and above all focusing in on elements of Mac's vocals that had previously taken a back seat.

You can hear the synergy across the record, from the first single 'Is It Worth Being Sad', the woozy unlikely jam of 'On Your Mind', the breeziness of 'Only Love', and the intimacy of songs like 'Something In The Water' or 'Lifesaver'.

2022 has marked a return to form for the revered Australian singer. The past six months have seen her not only release well received offerings in the album's first four singles - but also a triumphant return to the stage with a sold out national Australian tour which ended in a mesmerizing closing night as part of this year's Vivid Festival at the Sydney Opera House. Mac's shows were described as "A badass masterclass in flexing God-given talent. Meg is professionalism defined.

Meg Mac has created a body of work rich in searing honesty whilst working overtime to find her voice and be satisfied that she has made a record that flourishes without compromise. On Matter of Time, she's finally there. "I needed a switch up to find the love for music again and it worked," she says. "Now for the first time, I really feel in control."
