UK composer Matt Emery‘s music has been heard by literally millions with cinema and television placements for companies like Hugo Boss, BT Sports, BBC’s Top Gear, Ford, and GoPro as well as appearing in the trailer for the critically acclaimed IFC film “The Escape” starring Gemma Arteton and Dominic Cooper. Last September saw the release of his gorgeous debut album Empire on Injazero Records and this September he returns to the label with a brand new single on the label called “I Put a Flame in Your Heart” which recently debuted on Stephen McCauley’s Soundscapes program on BBC Radio Ulster and can be streamed here for the first time.

The track lives up to its name as Emery layers eight pianos together in a rising conflagration that eventually recedes to the smoldering embers of the opening melody. The song burns even brighter with the two remixes that accompany the release – a blazing full band version that adds pounding drums, surging synths, and choir, and a spry, glitchy rework by Leeds-based electronic band Vessels. With “I Put a Flame in Your Heart”, Emery delivers a late summer gem while whetting our appetites for whatever he might next have in the works.
