Unfamiliar Faces is the second studio album by Matt Costa, released on January 22, 2008. In the spring of 2007, Matt Costa teamed up with long-time friend/producer Tom Dumont and recorded twelve songs for the album.
When Matt Costa sat down to write what would become Unfamiliar Faces, the follow-up to his 2005 debut full-length Songs We Sing, the singer/songwriter took his most treasured belongings and put them on a shelf — then stared at them and just let the memories flow. “That way I could see everything that I loved,” he explains (the collection included his favorite books, a giant wooden pipe, and a box of old 45-speed records from the late 1950s). “I let my imagination wander. Regular life isn’t as exciting as an imaginary life.”
