In anticipation of the release of Matt Stell’s seven-song Everywhere But On EP on all platforms on Friday, May 24, a music video for the title track debuts today, Friday, May 17. Directed by Austin Peckham and filmed in Nashville, TN and Pensacola Beach, FL, the moody clip depicts Stell brooding over a heartache he cannot find a way to outrun. See it HERE.
I’ve been from Savannah to Long Beach,
trying to keep your memory out of reach.
Guess there’s just one place I haven’t gone.
I’ve moved everywhere but on.
The track, penned by Stell along with Paul Sikes and Lance Miller, has already landed on Spotify’s “New Boots,” “Wild Country,” “Next From Nashville,” and “New Music Nashville” playlists, as well as Apple’s “Best of the Week,” Amazon’s “New in Country” and “Introducing: Country,” YouTube’s “Country’s New Crop,” and Pandora’s “New Country Now” lists.
“’Everywhere But On’ is song with a lot of my own story woven in to the lyric,” says Stell. “I’ve had my heart broken, I’ve worked a lot of jobs, I’ve traveled all over the country and been gone so much that I had to have my mail sent to my mom’s house. Sometimes being on the move is the only way I can deal with things, even if I know that as soon as I stop I have to deal with whatever I’m trying to outrun.”
Named one of Taste of Country’s Artists To Watch and a CMT Discovery Artist, Stell co-produced the Everywhere But On EP alongside Wide Open Music’s Ash Bowers. The highly-anticipated forthcoming project includes the lead single and one of Rolling Stone’s “10 Best Country Songs To Hear Now,” “Prayed For You,” plus “Home In A Hometown” featuring fellow country standout, Jimmie Allen.
