Matt Von Roderick, also known as Matt Shulman, takes the iconic song “Fly Me To The Moon” and makes it soar with a celestial new rendition.

“With this version of ‘Fly To Me The Moon’ I’m offering a new take on an iconic song, a version that in some ways may be even more true to the lyrics,” Von Roderick shares. “The more traditional arrangements are perhaps more earthbound, but this viewpoint is decidedly more celestial...I hope it moves people...it’s always powerful to see and hear things with new eyes and ears, to discover new possibilities unfolding before you.”



Additionally, Von Roderick announces that “Fly Me To The Moon” is the first single from his highly-anticipated new album, CELESTIAL HEART, which will come out July 21st.

Von Roderick reveals: “Half of CELESTIAL HEART is composed of unique arrangements of standards from the American Songbook, such as the iconic ‘Fly Me to the Moon.’ The other half of the album is comprised of completely free, creative improvisation and spontaneous composition. The mixture of these elements speaks to my overall philosophy and helped give this album a transcendent feeling... ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ represents a kind of manifesto of balance and spectrum of possibility.”
