Download New Album: Rob Thomas – Chip Tooth Smile
Rob Thomas comes through with a brand new smashing hot and dope studio album, packed with 12 amazing and solid tracks entitled “Chip Tooth Smile“. Extra” caught up with Thomas at our Levi’s Times Square studio, where he revealed how his wife Marisol inspired the title. He shared, “I have a chipped tooth on my right front tooth and when I met my wife, I still had the chip… She wouldn’t let me fix the chip because she said it was part of my personality and she always called it my chip tooth smile.”
The pair have been married for nearly 20 years. He gushed, “I didn’t know I would be alive… She gave me a center and a core. For a singer-songwriter with over a dozen radio hits and more than 18 million albums sold in the United States (according to Nielsen Music), Rob Thomas is surprisingly OK with the fact that his brand of driving alt-rock is not currently in vogue. “Everything we’ve ever done, Matchbox Twenty or my solo stuff, always has existed a little bit to the left of whatever was happening,” says the 47-year-old. “When Matchbox had [2003 hit] ‘Unwell,’ everything else on the charts was like Nelly and Ludacris. This is just what I do, and it has never been hip, cool or cutting edge.”
Aptly, Thomas opens his fourth solo full-length, Chip Tooth Smile (out April 26 on Atlantic Records) with “One Less Day (Dying Young),” a single about appreciating life as you grow older. Produced by Butch Walker (Weezer, Fall Out Boy), the album finds Thomas — who’s celebrating the 20th anniversary of “Smooth,” his mega-smash with Santana — reflecting on marriage, fatherhood and finding peace as “the guy that, if you go into a CVS, at some point you’re going to hear one of my songs. This is the kind of song(s) you wouldn’t want to miss on your playlist.
