Get an exclusive listen above to Matt Doyle's cover of the Michael Mott song "Single City," the latest in a string of remix EPs from the composer's 2017 studio album, Abandoned Heart.
The song was originally sun on Mott's album by Loren Allred (the singing voice of Jenny Lind in The Greatest Showman); the new remix (co-produced by Mott and Rich Matthew) is the first recording of it to be sung by a man.
A star of the stage and screen, Doyle has appeared on Broadway in Spring Awakening, Bye Bye Birdie, War Horse, and The Book of Mormon. He also recently appeared Off-Broadway as Anthony in Sweeney Todd and as Georgie in A Clockwork Orange.
Doyle is also an accomplished singer/songwriter. His first EP, Daylight, was released in 2011, with Constant following it in 2012. His first full-length solo album came in 2016 with the release of Uncontrolled.
Mott's debut album Where the Sky Ends brought together 12 tracks of the songwriter's original theatre, jazz, and pop music, performed by such Broadway performers as Laura Osnes, Justin Guarini, Jeremy Jordan, and Ben Fankhauser. Abandoned Heart, released in September 2017 by Broadway Records, is Mott's second and latest full-length album.
Mott and Doyle will give "Single City (Remix)" its live premiere at Michael Mott & Friends: Get Up On My Feet, A Celebretory Benefit for The Actors Fund, June 16 at The Green Room 42. In addition to Doyle, Mott will be joined by Jeremy Jordan, Ashley Spencer, Anastacia McCleskey, Kyle Taylor Parker, Lindsay Rider, Marisa Dargahi, and Lauren Devine. Mott himself will be featured on the piano, backed by a five-piece band.
