Resolution (EP)


"Resolution" is a single released by Australian singer Matt Corby from his Resolution EP.[1] The song was released on 23 May 2013 by Universal Music Australia. "Resolution" peaked at number 5 on the ARIA Singles Chart and was certified 3× Platinum by the Australian Recording Industry Association for shipments exceeding 140,000 copies.[2] The song was also included as an iTunes bonus track on his debut album, Telluric (2016).


Corby wrote the song while he was living in Los Angeles. He said, "I got a little paranoid and I didn't really leave the house for a couple of days. I couldn't understand why I was so afraid of the world at this time so I wrote 'Resolution'. It's an ode to humanity and the way I want to be with other people and spread some love in an un-cheesy way."[3]
