MTStreets Delivers A Fresh Sound While Touching On The Topic Of Broken Relationships On New Single “Highway To Hell”

SUMMARY: Following his debut and follow up albums released in 2020 and 2021, MTStreets has since been fine-tuning his music and working with producers to create a series of singles including “Highway To Hell” ft. NovaBlisto. The track touches on several themes including, broken relationships and needing help in general, making it very relatable and one of his most dynamic tracks yet. The release date is on Valentine’s Day 2022.

Mark Thomas Rhodes, a.k.a. MTStreets, began his music career at age 18, with piano being his primary instrument. He received critical acclaim with his introspective music that encompasses a range of genres ranging from pop, hip hop, and R&B. Using introspective lyrics atop a wall of complex sound, his first official album was “Open Thoughts” in 2020 which garnered critical acclaim and allowed him to collaborate with up-and-coming artist Beanie.

After a move to Miami, Florida, from Hollywood, California, MTStreets continued to craft his music and was invited to Denver by Sony Music to attend an event with budding musicians from all around the world. This led to collaboration with Dua Lipa and offered a new direction for his music, which deals primarily with loss and the idea that everyone needs a helping hand from time to time. The new direction inspired him to work on numerous tracks including the insightful “Highway To Hell,” all to be released early in 2022 and in preparation for live performances in Miami in toward the end of 2022 and a 2023 European tour.

At the end of the day, MTStreets uses his personal experiences of grief and loss to connect with listeners and create an environment that is therapeutic, offering listeners a feeling of inclusion that highlights some of the personal struggles that the artist himself has experienced. Beneficial for both creator and listener, each track, including “Highway To Hell,” highlights a specific part of his life. In addition, his lyrics touch on topics in such a manner that listeners can gain a sense of calm and the idea that we are never alone.

Half of the song was recorded in a Miami studio following a process that in the beginning is a collection of thoughts based on pain experienced which then evolves into a collaborative effort during production. NovaBlisto, one of the most up and coming artists in L.A., recorded the other half of the song there. The result is a meaningful track that connects with listeners on a personal level both musically and lyrically. Recorded half in Miami and half in Hollywood, “Highway To Hell” has a diverse feel and will precede the third album by MTStreets, which will be released sometime in the summer of 2022. In the meantime, listeners can check out “Open Thoughts” and “#Cold4Life” the first two foundational albums by MTStreets on all music platforms, particularly Apple Music.

The single “Highway To Hell” represents the work of an artist who has dealt with plenty of emotional situations and has a unique way of conveying the proper message of hope and understanding to his listeners. Written during one of the most painful moments of his life, “Highway To Hell” deals with heartbreak, addiction and other topics that many people struggle with during their young adult lives. The song could be considered a backdrop for the stronger person we hope to emerge as.
