It’s the most confident album Allan has made.”
Allan started teasing the highly anticipated album in 2019 by releasing
>“Pretty Please,” “Stitch” and “6AM.” He started off 2020 with the new single, “Chief” which EARMILK proclaimed “an infusion of rap laced with rock-inspired drums.”

On April 18, 2020 one of the greatest solo debuts in rock history, Paul McCartney’s McCartney, will receive a special 50th anniversary release in a limited-edition half-speed mastered vinyl pressing for Record Store Day.
Originally released in April 1970, one month before The Beatles’ swansong Let It Be, McCartney saw Paul getting back to basics. Writing every song and playing every instrument (with backing vocals from Linda McCartney), the eponymous album represented a creative rebirth, bursting with new ideas, experiments, playfulness and freedom. Sonically, McCartney’s bare-bones home recording aesthetic imbued the album with an authentic lo-fi spirit, a much sought after sound that continues to retain a contemporary edge 50 years on.
In contrast to the professional difficulties that came with the demise of the world’s most iconic band, Paul was personally enjoying the contentment of family life as a newly married father. In a Q&A released at the time, Paul described the theme and feel of the album as, “Home, family, love.” This is obvious from the opening notes of Lovely Linda throughout the album, with tracks like Every Night and Man We Was Lonely musing on how much Paul’s life had improved—and nowhere more poignantly than on the tour de force Maybe I’m Amazed. Paul’s timeless tribute to Linda would be recognized as one of contemporary music’s great love songs, and remains a staple of Paul’s live set to this day, never failing to inspire tears of joy with its refrain of “Maybe I’m a man in the middle of something that he doesn’t really understand. Maybe I’m a man. Maybe you’re the only woman who can ever help me. Baby won’t you help me understand”.
Linda’s presence is also felt in the album’s iconic artwork: the front cover’s bowl of cherries photographed by her on holiday in Antigua, and the back cover’s portrait of Paul with daughter Mary as a baby, photographed on the family’s farm in Scotland where some of the album was also written.
50 years and counting, McCartney offers an incredible insight into the mind of one of the world’s greatest ever songwriters. The homespun spirit of the album and Paul’s taste for experimentation capture a unique moment in time: The very first steps of an unparalleled solo career that has seen Paul McCartney release decades worth of critically acclaimed commercial blockbuster albums including RAM, Band on the Run, Venus and Mars, Tug of War, Pipes of Peace, Flowers in the Dirt, Flaming Pie, Memory Almost Full, NEW and most recently 2018’s #1-charting Egypt Station.
The 50th anniversary Record Store Day limited edition of McCartney was pressed from a master cut by Miles Showell at half speed using the original 1970 master tapes at Abbey Road Studios. It was made as a vinyl specific transfer in high resolution and without digital peak limiting for the best possible reproduction.
DUKE DEUCE DROPS NEW TAPE ON QUALITY CONTROL MUSIC/YRN
Feedbacks from the public
“The fact that his record was co-signed by fellow Memphis stars, Project Pat and Juicy J, is a telling sign that Duke Deuce is truly on the rise.” – HYPEBEAST
“2020 could be Duke Deuce’s year” -CLASH
“Although it won’t be long until fans move on to the next hottest hip-hop dance, something tells us Duke Deuce has the star power and quality music to ride this moment for a whole lot longer” – COMPLEX
“Already showing the ability to stand out on the timeline, and with the support of Quality Control, Duke might just be ready to take off.” – LYRICAL LEMONADE
“He’s the best parts of every era of Memphis while being in tune with the new generation of rap.” – FLOSS MAG
Breakout Memphis Rapper
Duke Deuce drops his hotly anticipated new tape, Memphis Massacre 2 on Quality Control Music/YRN, the follow up to 2018’s Memphis Massacre. Listen to Memphis Massacre 2 HERE. Watch the video for “Crunk Ain’t Dead Remix (feat. Lil Jon, Juicy J, Project Pat)” HERE. Duke has been on a steady rise catching attention for bringing back an era of crunk music that originated in Memphis but became popular out of Atlanta.
Duke grew up around the sound and recalls the likes of Three6Mafia,8Ball, and MJG as influences as well as his father Duke Nitty who produced the Memphis classic “S.O.U.T.H. Parkway” by Gangsta Blac. Duke Nitty is also credited as a producer for few tracks on MM2. The album sees Duke navigate through diverse production and multiple styles like a veteran. An energetic listen over 12 tracks that could only be made by someone that lives and breathes this scene. It’s a true come up for a rising star in rap. Alongside his music, Duke’s unique dance moves are part of what brought him to Quality Control. After Offset saw one of Duke’s videos, he flew him out to the studio to meet and ended up signing him to QC. Gaining co-signs from the whole QC family as well as Cardi B, Duke Deuce is quickly becoming a recognizable name in the space. Late last year Duke released the video for “Crunk Ain’t Dead,” now at over 10 million views on YouTube.
Following its success, hip-hop legends Lil Jon, Juicy J, and Project Pat hopped on a remix that released just last week. Duke commented on working with them, “It was legendary working beside guys I listened to as a kid growing up in Memphis in the studio with my dad.”

Baby’s latest song “Woah” off his upcoming album sparked a viral dance craze on socials and hit #1 on Apple Music within 24 hours, clocking in at over 167 million streams to date and earning over 25 million per week.
