Rob Thomas The Great Unknown on LP + CD
Rob Thomas' new album The Great Unknown (Emblem/Atlantic) serves as the multiple-Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter's first solo album in more than six years. Produced by longtime collaborator Matt Serletic along with Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic, Taylor Swift, Beyonce), Ricky Reed (Jessie, J, Jason Derulo, twenty one pilots), and Shep Goodman & Aaron Accetta (American Authors), The Great Unknown includes the acclaimed first single, "Trust You," which has already shot into the Top 20 at Hot AC radio.
Rob Thomas is one of the most distinctive artists of this or any other era - a gifted vocalist, spellbinding performer, and accomplished songwriter known worldwide as lead singer and primary composer with Matchbox Twenty as well as for his multi-platinum certified solo work and chart-topping collaborations with other artists. Among his countless hits are solo classics like "Lonely No More," "This Is How A Heart Breaks," and "Streetcorner Symphony," Matchbox Twenty favorites including "Push," "3AM," "If You're Gone," and "Bent," and of course "Smooth," his 3x platinum certified worldwide hit collaboration with Santana.
Thomas made his solo debut with 2005's platinum certified ...Something To Be and immediately made history as the first album by a male artist from a rock or pop group to ever debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Thomas' most recent solo album, 2009's Cradlesong marked still another milestone, generating two No. 1 singles in "Her Diamonds" and "Someday." Billboard chart history was made once again, with Thomas now tied with Pink for the most No. 1 Adult Top 40 hits by a solo artist as well as the only male solo artist to score multiple chart-toppers at the format.
In 2012, Matchbox Twenty returned with their first all-new album in a decade, entitled North. Fueled by the hit singles, "She's So Mean," "Overjoyed," and "Our Song," North proved a landmark for the band, their first ever No. 1 debut and Billboard 200 chart-topper.
