As folk-rock singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson's latest album continues to climb to the upper reaches of U.S. music charts, ETonline is proud to premiere an exclusive video of Nathanson performing his single "Heart Starts."

Nathanson, who has been a recording artist for two decades now, has experienced a rejuvenation of his career after releasing his first studio album with Vanguard Records in 2007, which landed him in the Top 100 on U.S. charts and Top 20 on U.S. Rock charts.

To accompany the release of Great Pretenders on July 16, Nathanson will also embark on a North American tour beginning September 20 in the Northwest and traversing from coast to coast.
