Matt Stell to Release ‘Better Than That’ EP + Drops Title Track

Matt Stell has announced a brand new EP “Better Than That” due out on October 16th and released the title track, available on all streaming platforms now.

Up and coming country star, Matt Stell released a new track titled “Better Than That” and announced a brand new EP of the same name, out October 16th. This EP will be the follow-up to Everywhere But On and contains previously released songs such as “If I Was a Bar” and his multi-week number-one hit song, “Prayed For You”.

Matt Stell Better Than That

The title track, “Better Than That” tells the story of two old flames at the same bar. Despite wanting to say hello, the ex-boyfriend holds back as a new guy steps in to make a move. Calling out every wrong gesture the guy is making to try to win her attention. From shots of Jägermeister to trying to kiss her, Stell sings of how he knows her ‘better than that.’

Going from verse to chorus, the song contains a loud build-up and a heavy percussion, channeling Stell’s inner rock star. The uptempo track is a catchy tune that leaves fans wanting more from the rising star and if the rest of the EP matches its energy, it’s sure to produce some additional number ones for Stell.
