Matador is pleased to announce the signing of a multi-album, worldwide, exclusive recording agreement with prolific Memphis people person Jay Reatard. The label was already engaged in a series of limited-edition 7″ releases, to be compiled on CD for fall release. The first 7″, “See/Saw,” is already sold out; the second, “Painted Shut,” is due out on May 20. Jay will be recording in August for a brand-new studio album out in early 2009. (His former label, In The Red, is releasing a compilation of early singles in June.)

    “Studios feel like hospitals to me. I can’t really say, ‘Hey, two months from now I’m going to feel like recording.’ I just, y’know, wake up, have lunch, hang out, drink some coffee, and if I decide I want to record a song, then I’ll record a song. There’s no clock ticking.”
