Swedish House Mafia – Lifetime × It Gets Better

Global supergroup Swedish House Mafia have just released a new song and video “Lifetime” featuring Ty Dolla $ign and 070 Shake, following up on  last week’s release of “It Gets Better” which was accompanied by the news of their reunion and signing to the prestigious Republic Records. The band are performing on today’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with both Ty Dolla $ign and 070 Shake joining in.  The seminal global group last released music in 2013 with fans and press worldwide hoping and speculating for years about a return.

PAPER said about the group, “The track absolutely slaps no matter how much of a club snob you might pretend to be, but ‘It Gets Better’ is also a huge stylistic curve ball from the group embracing a sound more akin to The Chemical Brothers than a 2012 peer like Avicii or Tiësto.” VULTURE said “The progressive-house giants have released their first new song in eight years, ‘It Gets Better,’ which incorporates some techno influences and features an instantly infectious, clangy drop.”

About Swedish House Mafia

Formed in Stockholm in 2008, Swedish House Mafia is, as the name suggests, a Swedish House music group. They placed number ten on the DJ Mag Top 100 DJ Poll 2011, and were incredibly influential in the rise of House and EDM music in the early 2010s with their biggest hit being “Don’t You Worry Child.” In 2012, the band officially said they were splitting up and were on hiatus until last week when they announced their reunion.

Peach PRC Unveils Symptomatic

Breakthrough Australian singer and songwriter, Peach PRC, unveils a new single entitled “Symptomatic.”  

Listen to “Symptomatic” HERE via Republic Records. Watch the lyric video HERE.

About the song, she shared, “One of the features of my mental illness is I can have really low periods and then swing into an incredible high manic period. When this happens, I feel like I’m invincible and get really excited about doing lots of stuff—like learning to speak Italian, play 5 instruments, or become a crystal healer! Every time, I think I’ve been cured of my depression and mental struggles forever! My therapist once compared to me to Harley Quinn while I am in this state – that kind of bothered me. Then I thought, why don’t I write a song about being on this high and thinking I’m cured and just embrace the fuck out of the Harley-Quin-of-it-all! And that song – is ‘Symptomatic’.

Peach PRC unveiled her debut single “Josh” earlier this year. It has already gathered 10 million-plus streams and received widespread critical acclaim. PAPER Mag raved, “it’s a bombastic first look for the freshly minted pop star that sacrifices none of the chaotic whimsy that endeared fans to her in the first place, and Refinery29 noted, “Peach PRC takes her ex’s obsession and turns it into a pop song, and it’s kind of perfect. (Leave her alone, Josh.)” 

She’s gearing up to drop her debut EP very soon!

JESSIE J – I WANT LOVE

JESSIE J PREMIERES I WANT LOVE OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO 

NEW ALBUM ARRIVING LATER THIS YEAR

GRAMMY® Award-nominated multi-platinum pop superstar Jessie J premieres the official music video for brand-new single I Want Love via LAVA/Republic Records.

“This album is like a short film over many years of my life and this video is the first part of that story I’m sharing.” Jessie J comments on the new music video, “I wanted the video to feel like people weren’t supposed to see this moment. A moment between the moments captured.”

I Want Love sets the stage for her anxiously awaited fifth full-length album, coming later this year, co-written with and executive produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning mega-producer Ryan Tedder (Beyoncé, Adele).

Back in 2011, Jessie J quietly emerged with the biggest voice in pop. The UK-born powerhouse introduced herself with Who You Are, which not only went platinum, but also yielded the quadruple-platinum Price Tag and platinum Domino. Not to mention, the record made history as “the first album by a British female artist to produce six or more Top 10 hits in the UK,” while she picked up the 2011 Critics’ Choice BRIT Award and BBC’s Sound of 2011. On its heels, 2014’s Sweet Talker crashed the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 and housed the eight-times platinum Bang Bang with Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. Throughout 2018, she revealed R.O.S.E. in four parts to critical acclaim and supported it with a sold-out world tour. The same year Jessie J traveled to China and joined the TV show SINGER, a singing competition where she performed each week in front of a television audience of 250 million with a grand finale viewership of a 1 billion. Not only was Jessie J the first international artist to ever compete alongside the biggest artists in Asia, but also the first to ever win. With a once-in-a-generation voice, confessional writing style, and stadium-shaking charisma, she’s back in 2021 with I Want Love.

Watch I Want Love here. Now available on all platforms.

Tassia Zappia from Bryan Kehn from Republic Records Media for use by 360 Magazine

Tassia Zappia – When I Was Four

Increasing buzz following her critically acclaimed debut, Melbourne singer songwriter Tassia Zappia unveils a new single and music video entitled “When I Was Four” via Republic Records today. Listen to “When I Was Four” here. Watch the lyric video here.

On the autobiographical track, her voice glides over soft piano as she details her journey from humble beginnings in Australia to the door of a seemingly impossible dream. The momentum builds towards a powerhouse hook evocative of her range. The accompanying video begins with a grainy confessional by Tassia as she explains her resolve to make this dream real. The clip follows her alone through Los Angeles before intercutting original home video footage of her performing as a kid. It all culminates on an uplifting finale.

Tassia introduced herself with her very first single “You Don’t Want Me.” Right out of the gate, it amassed playlist support from the territories around the world. Additionally, the debut received widespread acclaim with press raving, “We already know it’s going to be on heavy rotation for us.”

Right now, she’s preparing her debut EP for release this year. Stay tuned!

Tassia Zappia, Italian born in Melbourne, doesn’t gloss over the little things in her music. She approaches her lyrics with a keen eye for detail only amplified by her show-stopping delivery, outsized vocal flare, and free spirit. Listening to the Australian singer and songwriter can feel like being in the room right next to her during some momentous turning point.

As a kid, Tassia discovered Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, Barbra Streisand, and Frank Sinatra through her parents, developing an appreciation for “super old school classics.” Feeling like an outsider, she turned to poetry and music. By 12-years-old, she began writing songs. She discovered Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill and incorporated all of these inspirations into a raw, unfiltered, and soulful style. In 2019, she took a trip to Los Angeles for a music camp that wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. Instead, it “felt like Fyre Fest,” but she ended up with her first break, nevertheless. After performing her original composition “WHEN I WAS FOUR” during a visit from chart-topping songwriter Heidi Rojas [Little Mix, Cheryl Cole], she left the audience in tears. Rojas asked for Tassia’s phone number, and they met for coffee a few days later. The following day Heidi took Tassia to a session with Lauren Christy, formerly of The Matrix [Avril Lavigne, David Bowie, Dua Lipa, Bebe Rexha, Rihanna], and this led to Tassia signing a development deal with Heidi and Lauren’s production company. Along the way, she inked a deal with Republic and crafted her debut single “You Don’t Want Me.”

“Tassia Zappia wastes no time to prove just how powerful her voice is with those high notes, reminiscent of the late Amy Winehouse, in the opening measures in ‘You Don’t Want Me.’” – The Honey Pop
“…she’s going to take over the world by storm” – Alfitude
“Tassia Zappia is making sure your first impression of her music is a spicy one” – PLNKWIFI

bülow Unveils New Single

Today, alternative pop singer and songwriter bülow unveils a new single entitled “Revolver.” Listen to “Revolver” HERE via Republic Records and Universal Music Canada.

Regarding the track, she shared, I want people to feel empowered listening to it. You are as powerful as you want to be. I don’t wake up every day feeling my most confident self. No one does. I struggle with finding my footing and falling into a state of confidence every day where what people say or do doesn’t affect me. It’s something I work on every day, but I know that when I am that and I believe it, I’m not afraid of fucking up/falling on my face. That’s how I want to live. And that’s what I want people to feel when listening to ‘Revolver’.”

It arrives on the heels of her single “First Place.” The latter has already amassed 2.9 million Spotify streams and 287K views on the music video. Right out of the gate, it garnered widespread looks from ComplexOnes To WatchWonderland MagazineClashThe FADERAtwood MagazineSpindle, and more. VOGUE promised,Wherever she’s heading next, her runaway hits and the fans she’s gathered will be following her, and Billboard touted it as her strongest track yet.” Alfitude raved, bülow’s rise to stardom has been pretty meteoric to say the least, and The Interns predicted, bülow is going to be one this year’s breakout acts and ‘First Place’ is a good start.”

bülow nears HALF-A-BILLON cumulative streams to date, from four critically acclaimed EPs—Damaged Vol. 1 [2017], Damaged Vol. 2 [2018], Crystalline [2019], and The Contender [2019]. In addition, bülow has collaborated with everyone from Ty Dolla $ign and Mura Masa to Fall Out Boy and MadeInTYO.

Jex x 2 A.M.

Gathering 100 million streams on popular collaborations and earning acclaim from EDM.com and more, New Jersey electronic pop songstress Jex introduces a scorching signature style on her first solo single “2AM” today. It notably marks her official debut for Eddie O Entertainment/Casablanca Records.

The track rides a dance floor-tailored disco bounce and thick piano towards a powerhouse refrain. Jex’s vocals explode from intimate verses into a soaring nocturnal chorus.

Regarding the single, she commented, I tried to capture the personal experience of not being able to sleep, because you’re thinking about someone. I’m not in love with this person, but at that time of night, it sometimes feels like you are. This person is just on your mind.”

Jex has already moved listeners everywhere with a high-powered catalog of collaborations. However, she’s offering an escape in her solo material uplifted to the heavens by her seismic vocals. Right now, she’s preparing more music for release very soon.

Jex recognized her calling as a kid in a small South Jersey farm town outside of Philadelphia. Her father gigged regularly, and he brought Jex out on stage at a young age. She studied piano for twelve years and gained a deep understanding of theory. At the same time, she taught herself how to compose by listening to everyone from Lady Gaga, Sia, and Amy Winehouse to Boston and Foreigner. She dropped out of college and locked herself inside of her home studio. Her voice caught the attention of various producers, and she quietly emerged as an in-demand vocalist. In 2017, she initially teamed up with Humain for “My Way,” opening up the floodgates. She joined forces with Robin Hustin and Tobi Morrow on “Light It Up,” surpassing 27.8 million Spotify streams. She landed her biggest collaboration to date by fueling “Control” by Unknown Brain and Rival to over 42 million Spotify streams. Other bangers included Lost Sky’s “Where We Started,” posting up another 19 million Spotify streams.

Meanwhile, EDM.com described her collaboration with Leowi “These Days” as “a stunning dance ballad.” In 2020, she inked a publishing deal with Ultra Publishing. During 2021, she landed a deal with Eddie O Entertainment/Casablanca Records.

Get ready for more from Jex soon.

RENÉE ZELLWEGER & SAM SMITH IS OUT

Today, Republic & Decca Records release the brand-new single “Get Happy”, featuring original vocals by Renée Zellweger and Sam Smith, from the forthcoming JUDY The Original Soundtrack out September 27. Listen HERE.

Says Sam Smith, “When I was 17 years old, I did a project on Judy Garland for my Film Studies A-Level. I was immediately immersed into the magic of Judy and her incredibly brave and triumphant story. She has remained as one of the icons of my life. She was one of the bravest humans out there and her vulnerability and honesty in her art still gives me goose bumps like it did the first time. 

It was truly an honour to sing with Renée. Nobody could have played Judy as well as Renée, and it is a career highlight for me to be singing with her, and in some small way, with Judy. I hope everyone loves the film as much as I did.” ​

The track coincides with the release of the highly-anticipated feature film in which Zellweger stars as Judy Garland, set for U.S. release on September 27.

Set for global release on September 27, JUDY the album marks 50 years since Judy Garland’s premature death in 1969, and 80 years since she shot to teenage stardom in The Wizard of Oz in 1939.

JUDY is a Pathé, BBC Films and Ingenious Media Presentation of a Calamity Films Production and is set for a U.S. nationwide theatrical release on September 27.
