Seint Monet said about the song, “Looking back, it makes me laugh to think about how I put this guy on a pedestal. He started dating someone else and, at the time, it hurt like a bitch. But it was worth it, because it gave me this fucking beautiful song.”

Upon it’s release, the song received praise from American songwriter A1234 and Atwood Magazine, among others. The single’s music video is also currently being playlisted on MTV’s MTVU and Spankin New channels.

In addition, Seint Monet’s latest release, 32 Degrees, will also be featured on the EP. The track, written alongside Johnluke Lewis (LANY), Julius Rodriguez (Brasstracks, A$ap Rocky), Mike Malchicoff (Mark Ronson, Julia Michaels, Troye Sivan) and Miette Hope, continues to see the artist’s rapid rise.

On the eve of his 28th birthday, Machine Gun Kelly released the music video for his song “27.” The track, which was featured on his album bloom, is an ode to fully living until the infamously-damned age of 27. The EST 19XX/Bad Boy/Interscope recording artist delivers the Ryan Hardy-directed visual that begins with a montage of MGK as he’s travelled through his career. The video takes on an analog-film editing aesthetic and continues with tour and studio footage interspersed throughout. MGK just wrapped filming Tommy Lee’s upcoming Motley Crue biopic, The Dirt, and is set to star in Sandra Bullock’s new film, Bird Box. The bloom rapper will join Fall Out Boy on The M A N I A Tour which kicks off on August 29 in Uniondale, NY.

Bloom: Open Space

Open to the public now, Bloom: Open Space is a new mixed reality generative music experience created by musician, producer, visual artist, and thinker Brian Eno and longtime collaborator, musician/software designer Peter Chilvers. For just five days, guests to The Transformatorhuis (Trafo House) at Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam can explore this unique MR installation that blurs the lines between the physical and virtual.

 
Based upon their highly acclaimed, award-winning app of the same name, the installation explores uncharted territory in the realms of both applications and generative art. Guests can use the Microsoft HoloLens to physically experience Bloom – tapping the air around them to create elaborate patterns and unique melodies with the simplest of gestures.

 
Says Eno, “I have always been interested by the possibilities that new technologies offer, particularly that subset which falls under the heading ‘things nobody ever thought of doing before.’ This offer was an opportunity to explore the possibilities of Bloom further and augmented reality further.”

 

Bloom: Open Space seeks to inspire creativity in line with Brian Eno’s innovations, while the HoloLens allows the audience to directly participate and become part of the total experience. Eno has consistently pushed the boundaries of music, sound, and visual art, continually challenging both himself and those who experience his work. Eno and
Chilvers have been experimenting with generative systems for about 15 years, and as well as Bloom, have also released a number of other apps including Scape, Trope, and most recently, Reflection.

A part of the Microsoft Music x Technology program, this collaboration transforms the way we experience and create music. The installation is open to the public in Amsterdam through February 25th, 2018. For those unable to travel to Amsterdam, you can get an inside look at Bloom: Open Space here: bloomopenspace.com

LEWIS CAPALDI PREMIERES “FADE (LIVE)” VIDEO TODAY

DEBUT EP BLOOM OUT NOW ON CAPITOL RECORDS ­­

Capaldi To Join Milky Chance On January 2018 North American Tour

Scottish artist Lewis Capaldi premieres the video for “Fade (Live)” today- watch it HERE.  The video was directed by Alexandra Gavillet and the track is from Capaldi’s debut EP Bloom out now on Capitol Records and available for download and streaming HERE.   Capaldi co-wrote “Fade” with GRAMMY award winner Malay (Frank Ocean, Sam Smith, Zayn Malik), who also produced it.

“Fade is probably the proudest I’ve ever been about a song I’ve written, it came together so naturally over the course of two days in New York and the fact that I got to write it and have it produced by Malay who’s someone I’ve been a big fan of for a long time was such an honour,” says Capaldi. We filmed the live video for the track in a studio in London a month or so ago and I’m still so pleased with how it turned out, visuals were never really something I considered when I started making music but over the last year it’s something I’ve been becoming so much more interested in! The video was directed by Alexandra Gavillet who’s fucking amazing, I’m still not really comfortable being in front of a camera but she was great in helping me feel a bit more at ease with everything. I honestly think it looks class, she smashed it!”

“Fade” racked up over one million streams in the first week alone and is now approaching four million streams.  Capaldi’s previous track “Lost On You,” was included in Spotify’s New Music Friday in over 20 countries, while his debut “Bruises,” held the No. 1 spot on the playlist and has amassed over 35 million total streams globally.  A stripped-down ballad that looks back on a failed relationship, “Bruises” showcases Capaldi’s nimble vocal ability, as he effortlessly slips between smooth baritone, gravelly mid-tone, and haunting falsetto with pinpoint accuracy.

Hailing from the small town of Bathgate, outside of Glasgow, Capaldi sold out two headlining shows at Glasgow’s famed King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut and embarked on his first UK headling tour, which sold out in minutes, before any of his music was officially released. He will tour Europe this fall with Rag’n’Bone Man, followed by his second UK sold out headlining tour in December.  Capaldi will also tour the U.S. and Canada with Milky Chance in January. See below for all tour dates.

The track-listing for the Bloom EP is as follows:

1 Fade

2 Bruises

3 Mercy

4 Lost On You

What critics are saying about Lewis Capaldi:

“Lewis Capaldi has the kind of deep, textured voice that you could listen to for hours. He finds expressive rough edges, then smooths them out into the sweetest of notes…Capaldi’s talent is tugging at heartstrings – or rather, pulling at them with all his vocal might.”

-Time

“Lewis Capaldi has captivated listeners with his soulful voice…”

– Billboard

“Lewis Capaldi is generating some huge buzz with ‘Fade.’ Produced by Malay (Frank Ocean’s long-time collaborator), the emotional ballad showcases the 20-year-old Scot’s powerful pipes and knack for insightful lyrics. It goes without saying that he’s One To Watch.”

– Idolator

“Showcasing his stunning vocals and songwriting ability, the track is breathtakingly beautiful and an exciting glimpse of what’s to come.”

– Wonderland

“The vocal range of the guy is enough to impress anybody, and, as we see/hear here, all Lewis needs to have you in the palm of his hand is a simple piano playing throughout.”

– hillydilly

“Glasgow singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi has one of the most remarkable, tender voicesI’ve heard in a long time.”

– Independent

“(Lewis Capaldi) seems able to find the beauty in the everyday, to translate deeply personal experiences into something universal.”

– Clash

“A Lewis Capaldi show is undoubtedly a rollercoaster of emotions everyone must experience… If you haven’t already listened to (his new track) ‘Fade,’ what have you been doing?”

“I picked the guitar up at nine, started writing songs at eleven and then was gigging from 12 onwards. I mean, they were awful songs, but it was fun. I was always trying to get in places, playing at pubs. I’d show up and try and blag my way in. I’d have to hide in the toilets and then jump out and do my set as quickly as possible before anyone knew there was a 12-year-old in the pub,” says Capaldi, 20, who was recently nominated for a Breakthrough Artist of the Year Award at the Scottish Music Awards. From then on in Lewis devoted every spare moment he had to writing and performing. Playing gigs in Glasgow, Edinburgh and anywhere he could find a receptive audience, he was constantly working on songs, finding his voice as a songwriter and honing his craft with unwavering dedication. All the while developing the rough-around-the-edges vocals that would make those songs soar. 

 

Hailing from the small town of Bathgate, outside of Glasgow, Capaldi sold out two headlining shows at Glasgow’s famed King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut and embarked on his first UK headling tour, which sold out in minutes, before any of his music was officially released.
