Thomas has announced the release of his highly anticipated fourth solo album Chip Tooth Smile – arriving everywhere April 26th (pre-order available now) and heralded today by new single “One Less Day (Dying Young).” Penned by Thomas and produced by Butch Walker (Panic! At The Disco, P!nk), “One Less Day (Dying Young)” is available now via all DSPs alongside a video companion directed by Andy Morahan (George Michael, Elton John, Aerosmith, Guns N’ Roses). “This is an anthem about life and living” said Thomas. “Living one more day is a privilege not afforded to everyone, so do all you can with the ones you get.”

Rob Thomas is one of the most distinctive artists of this or any other era – a gifted vocalist, spellbinding performer, and acclaimed songwriter known worldwide as lead singer and primary composer with Matchbox Twenty as well as for his multi-platinum certified solo work and chart-topping collaborations with other artists. Among his countless hits are solo classics like “Lonely No More,” “This Is How A Heart Breaks,” and “Streetcorner Symphony,” Matchbox Twenty favorites including “Push,” “3AM,” “If You’re Gone,” and “Bent,” and of course “Smooth,” his 3x RIAA platinum certified worldwide hit collaboration with Santana which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Thomas earned three GRAMMY® Awards for his role as co-writer and vocalist on “Smooth,” which topped Billboard’s “Hot 100” for an astounding 12 consecutive weeks and spent 58 total weeks on the chart, the #1 song in Billboard’s “Top Hot 100 Rock Songs” chart history and #2 “Hot 100” song of all time. As if that weren’t enough, “Smooth” was declared the all-time #1 song on Billboard’s “Adult Pop Songs” radio airplay chart, the #1 song of the rock era based on chart performance on Billboard’s Hot 100, and recently declared to still hold the spot as the second most successful song of all time by Billboard.
A charismatic, engaging, and indefatigable live performer, Thomas has spent much of the past two decades on the road, fronting massive world treks with Matchbox Twenty and on his own as well as a series of intimate acoustic tours. Thomas is also a dedicated philanthropist, establishing Sidewalk Angels Foundation with his wife Marisol Thomas in 2003. The organization is dedicated to providing critically needed funds and support to over 20 no-kill animal shelters and animal rescues, across the country, that help to fight for the rights and fair treatment of those with no voice.
