The Comeback

90’s superstar Matt Malone’s chart topping days are long behind him until he sensationally returns to the spotlight when a viral video goes wrong.

With his chart-topping days a distant memory from the 1990’s, rock legend Matt Malone is reduced to dodgy gigs in dingy bars. But when a video of a recording studio meltdown goes viral his record company decide that it’s time to cash-in by resurrecting his career.

Now Matt is discovering just how much the music industry has changed as second time around he has work with wellness consultants, personal training, songwriting producers, genre mashups, rap collaborations, lavish album launches and detox diets. And things only get more complicated when his daughter returns from America in the middle of the chaos to scatter her mother’s ashes.

One thing’s for sure, this Comeback is going to take a lot more hard work than Matt ever expected.
