Matthew Sweet

Matthew Sweet

Pop-rock singer-songwriter Matthew Sweet, who emerged from the same Athens, Ga., college-rock scene as R.E.M., is best known for his 1991 breakthrough album, “Girlfriend.” With its catchy melodies, ineffable hooks, funky rhythms, pitch-perfect guitar fills, and incisive lyrics, “Girlfriend” is widely considered an all-time rock classic. Sweet devoted an entire tour to playing the album start-to-finish in 2012, and it’s even been made into a stage musical.

The Nebraska native left Los Angeles three years ago and moved back home to Nebraska, where he recorded his 14th album, “Tomorrow Forever,” due out this June. It features an array of guest artists including guitarists Jason Victor (Steve Wynn & the Miracle 3, Dream Syndicate), Val McCallum (Jackson Browne), John Moremen (the Orange Peels), Gary Louris (the Jayhawks) and Paul Chastain (Velvet Crush), in various combinations alongside the rhythm section of Menck (Chastain’s partner in Velvet Crush) and Sweet on bass and guitar, keyboards, and Mellotron. The Bangles’ Debbi Peterson drums on four tracks, and the Zombies’ Rod Argent brings his elegant piano touch to “Haunted,” which unfurls with a “Layla”-like majesty.
