LORDE – SOLAR POWER BONUS TRACKS

LORDE RELEASES TWO SOLAR POWER BONUS TRACKS “HELEN OF TROY” AND “HOLD NO GRUDGE” AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE NOW

“FALLEN FRUIT” MUSIC VIDEO DROPPED EARLIER THIS WEEK FROM CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED THIRD STUDIO ALBUM SOLAR POWER

GRAMMY® Award-winning multiplatinum artist LORDE took to her Solar Power Institute Bulletin earlier this week to drop the surprise music video for “Fallen Fruit” and announce the release of her Solar Power bonus tracks, “Helen of Troy” and “Hold No Grudge” to DSPs. The songs are available to stream everywhere and the music video is available to watch now.

Of the bonus tracks LORDE says, “These songs were fun explorations on the album journey. They didn’t quite fit into the track list for whatever reason but they’re both big tunes.”

Of “Helen of Troy” she says, “We wrote it super quickly in the tiniest room at Westlake where we did a bunch of Melo and it was fun the whole time. It’s super off the cuff lyrically, almost ad-libbed, and you can hear me starting to figure out some album themes…”

When writing of “Hold No Grudge” she says, “HNG is a sort of composite portrait of when relationships turn sour, being trapped in the ice but remembering the warmth.”

Of the “Fallen Fruit” music video LORDE says, “In the Solar Power video, you were introduced to the island as a lush paradise — glistening water, blue skies, not a grain of sand out of place (barring that pesky beach trash…). Cut to: humans doing as they do, getting greedy, treating the land with disrespect and stripping it of its beauty. There’ll always be another pristine place to start again, right? The gardens that were once lush and fruitful are now on fire. The fishing boats are busted up and overturned. All that’s left of the peaches are their pits. Amid all that, my character makes a choice.”

The artist’s latest visual gives fans a deeper look into the universe of Solar Power. Depicting human destruction and the Global climate crisis, the video is a powerful statement of the times.

The two bonus tracks were originally debuted exclusively on the Music Box and are now available at DSPs everywhere.

About LORDE

In 2013, a 16-year-old LORDE quietly, yet confidently asserted herself as the voice of a generation with her full-length debut, Pure Heroine. The album would go triple-platinum, win two GRAMMY® Awards, and spawn the certified Diamond, record-breaking, international juggernaut single, “Royals,” and quadruple-platinum follow up “Team.” The former cemented LORDE as “the youngest solo artist and the only New Zealander to achieve #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 since 1987.” Time exalted her amongst the “Most Influential Teenagers in the World,” she landed on Forbes’s “30 Under 30” List, graced the cover of Rolling Stone and performed alongside Nirvana during the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. She also curated the official soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and recorded “Yellow Flicker Beat” as the lead single. In 2017 LORDE released her second full-length studio album, Melodrama which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 Chart, making her the first ever NZ artist to land a #1 debut album in the United States. The album reached #1 in over 45 countries and earned LORDE a nomination for Album of the Year at the 2018 GRAMMY® Awards. LORDE makes her highly anticipated return with critically acclaimed new single, “Solar Power,” from her third full-length studio album, Solar Power, due out August 20th. LORDE currently has over 12 million albums sold worldwide and over 10 billion streams worldwide.

EST GEE — “5500 DEGREES”

Today, EST Gee shared the new music video for his raw and energetic single “5500 Degrees (feat Lil Baby, 42 Dugg and Rylo Rodriguez),” which has become a fan-favorite off the Louisville hip-hop artist’s debut label mixtape, Bigger Than Life Or Death.

On “5500 Degrees,” Gee joins forces with the Baby, Dugg and Rylo to put a fresh twist on Juvenile’s classic “400 Degreez” that was released in 1998. In the visual directed by Diesel Filmz, all 4 artists deliver dynamic bars that showcase their charisma and star power. Watch the video HERE.

Gee recently secured his first-career, Top-10 appearance on the Billboard 200 chart with Bigger Than Life Or Death, which was released via CMG/Warlike/Interscope Records and surged to No. 7 on the Billboard 200.

It has impressively gathered over 137 million streams globally to date as he continues to average nearly 4 million monthly listeners on Spotify. He also topped Rolling Stone’s Breakthrough 25 Chart and captured No. 1 on Apple’s All Genre chart. Stream Bigger Than Life Or Death HERE.

Last month, Gee made his major festival debut at Rolling Loud: Miami, where he performed several songs from Bigger Than Life Or Death and performed alongside labelmate 42 Dugg. He is also set to perform at Rolling Loud: New York and Rolling Loud: California as well as Made In America.

Bigger Than Life Or Death marks Gee’s label debut and the project was jam-packed with illustrious collaborations from Lil Baby, Future, Yo Gotti, Young Thug, Lil Durk, 42 Dugg, Rylo Rodriguez and Pooh Shiesty.

The mixtape went on to receive acclaim from several media outlets including XXL, OkayPlayer, BrooklynVegan, Complex, Fader and more. It also received rave reviews from VIBE who acclaimed, “…the Louisville native shines on this outing, as well as the entirety of his new project…” and Stereogum who recognized, “Even with all those big stars on the album… Bigger Than Life Or Death never loses its sense of personality.”  Gee was also recognized by Billboard who crowned him as “July’s R&B/Hip-Hop Rookie of the Month.”

PRAISE FOR BIGGER THAN LIFE OR DEATH:

“comprised of impressive bars, a fluid flow and vivid storytelling about his life coming up in Louisville, Ky” – XXL

“It’s no wonder Jay-Z and Drake have co-signed him” – Consequence of Sound

“one of rap’s most promising and closely watched new talents.” – FADER

“Every new verse from Gee feels like he’s trying to bring the house down, and this concoction of deeply vivid street tales and hard-nosed deliveries has anointed Louisville’s own as the next superstar in rap” – Lyrical Lemonade

“EST Gee has quickly become one of the hottest rappers out” – REVOLT
