“I wanted to just start again and do everything without compromise,” states Meg Mac of the game-changing personal switch-up that led to Matter of Time: the singer’s highly anticipated third album and a record that builds on Mac’s award-winning foundations and sends them to new places of clarity and ambition.

With a third album recorded and primed for imminent release at the beginning of 2020, Mac had what she now describes as “a bit of a meltdown”. She scrapped its lead single two weeks before release, and with it the rest of the body of work – a bold move towards a creative process without compromise.  Needing some space to regain perspective, Mac moved out to Burrawang, a remote village in the NSW countryside, and began work on Matter of Time.

As opposed to her pre-countryside scrapped album, the most important thing this time around would be “to mean every word I sing, to not have anything in the back of my head when I’m singing where I don’t totally love it.”

The album’s title track is the only song that survived the kill of the original album. Written by Mac and co-writer Sam De Jong (Jacob Banks, Muse, Maisie Peters), Matter of Time shows strong evidence of the cracks of confidence that had almost derailed Mac. The track begins with a lament – “I’m not great and I hate that I can’t say it” – before swelling into a rich, soaring yearning for solace.

“This song is the only survivor from the album I threw away. It’s the most important song on the album and sits right between the old and the new. I find it spooky because everything I wrote came true, it was only a matter of time before I was going to snap. Somehow I knew I was about to reach breaking point and then I did.”
