Matt Costa shares new single, "The Golden Ghost"

Singer/songwriter Matt Costa has shared new single, “The Golden Ghost,” a melancholy track, tinged with elements of western folk. Speaking on the track, Costa said, “Golden Ghost is a song that I wrote after meeting a long lost relative. I started writing it in the morning, took an eight hour drive through the mojave desert, and came home late that same night to complete the song. I felt strange that an Imagined reality can be more powerful than an actual one. I recorded it in the golden state of California.” Costa is about to kick off a co-headlining tour across North America with surf-rock duo Cayucas, set to begin October 9th in Brooklyn, NY. The tour will also feature an exclusive collaboration with Costa Zero Skateboards,

Both artists have had a busy 2023 ahead of this upcoming tour: Matt Costa’s newest film project Katabatic Flight — created in collaboration with Roark, Vero Watches, and Danner Boots — was released on April 28. The film’s official score — produced and written by Matt himself — was also released via all DSPs, in accompaniment with the film’s release.

In Matt’s own words, the film is described as such: “Matthew James athlete and pilot descends into Death Valley on the path of the Katabatic winds. We take flight and uncover a new relationship with time and our relationship to the primordial. The laws of nature suggest the destination. Learning that when you harness the wind we do not capture it, instead it must become our guide. I’m thrilled to share the Katabatic Flight in documentation on film and in song.”
