July 2016 saw Mole release his highly anticipated sophomore album “Run”. The album reached the No. 1 position on iTunes South Africa and the album’s first single, “Run” achieved Gold Status within 3 months of release. The album “Run” was also nominated for Best Pop Album, Best Produced Album and Record of the Year at SAMA 23.
“Run” sees Mole take a different turn from his debut offering, "The Home We Built". This change is evident not only from a sonic and lyrical perspective but also aesthetically.
“My songs are inspired by my family, the people that I love. They are a firm base of support and grounding. My Dad told me about a dream that he had where I was running a race. His job was to help me shoot off from the starting blocks. We all have an enormous amount of potential. We need to look to something far bigger than ourselves to give us what it is that we need to walk into that potential and run with it...” shares Matthew Mole on his new album.
Since the release of Run, Matthew Mole has been performing all over the country and also performed at massive festivals like 5FM’s Cape Town Live Loud, 947’s Joburg Day and East Coast Radio’s Durban Day. For the first time ever, Matthew Mole fans can now enjoy ‘Run’ on vinyl available at all good music stores.
