MC@Play with Matchbox Twenty Video
American pop rock institution Matchbox Twenty has been holding their own since the '90s, and, with the release of their fourth studio album, aren't going anywhere anytime soon as they continue to climb the charts.
Hey, I'm Rob. I'm Paul. We're the Matchbox 20 and you are watching marieclaire.com. Sayin' yeah, and you want her, but she's so mean. You'll never let her go, why don't you let her go? Yeah, and you want her, but she's so mean. You'll never let her go, why don't you let her go? The album title "North" comes from when you know where north is, you know the direction you're going so this record sort of-- sort of like a very long, long journey to get to what was finished and we definitely got sort of overwhelmed and lost along the way and kind of figured it out and when we figured it out it was like that's more kind of-- how we found the north, you know, and it looks really--
It looks good right there. I think everything we do is the result of an argument between-
We just keep bouncing things back and forth until we all go, "Oh yeah that's it."
There's always this kind of definitive sections in these songs and each one was written by different person. So, you know, we literally just start playing the rhythm and I was start going, "No, no [unknown]" We're always taking this melody and in every song that I knew kind of works the same way with these. It's gonna nonsense lyrics that you screwed up and then Paul, you know, when we get the next party like, you know, tag off and Paul is like, [unknown]. Because the music was kind of a beat, we wanted to be a little more tongue and cheek. We don't want to be like she's so mean like we're actually, you know, angry at somebody. We're more angry at yourself or like it's somebody who's bad for you.
One person who's kind of is-- that we all have in common that really holding a really high regard is [unknown]
Yeah, everybody is [unknown]
Yeah, I mean there's-- there's just no denying and he's such a huge influence on us.
If your goal is like you've just gotten and make a record and sales a bunch of records then [unknown] gold and you're accomplished, but I think the idea has always been how to career on this.
We wanna be doing this and wanna be put records and we do to at least find a portion of the world that cares about we're doing and wants to hear and connects with it. So, in that sense, I think every record that I do, every record he does, every record we do, I think everything is important because it's-- it means that you're still making music that's connecting with people and so, you know, we're always gonna do everything we do.
