NEIKED X MAE MULLER X POLO G PREMIERE MAGNETIC NEW SINGLE “BETTER DAYS”

British singer/songwriter Mae Muller has joined forces with Swedish hitmaker NEIKED and platinum-selling rapper Polo G for a euphoric new single calledBetter Days. Out via Capitol Records, the track is a high-energy pop anthem whose optimistic outlook is undeniably catchy.

Produced by NEIKED, “Better Days” delivers a dance-ready collision of radiant horns, glittering synth, and pulse-pounding beats, an irresistible setting for Mae’s lush and lovely vocal work. As she voices her longing for a brighter future, Polo G drops in for a heart-on-sleeve verse that perfectly amplifies the tracks hopeful mood.

“Me and NEIKED have been sitting on this song for so long I can’t believe it’s out everywhere, and with Polo G,” says Mae. “I’m such a big fan of him, so to work together was such a dream. I want people to listen to this song and feel happy, to dance, to sing, and just enjoy life. We’ve earned that.

NEIKED adds, “I feel privileged to work with amazing artists like Mae Muller and Polo G. Two great people, and together we’ve created something special! I have been working hard on my upcoming music this year and now is a perfect time to finally share the first piece of the NEIKED puzzle. ‘Better Days’ is like a gracefully cooked palak paneer.

The video for “Better Days,” directed by Tom Dream, is due out soon.

“Better Days” arrives as the latest in a series of exciting collaborations from Mae, including tracks like “When You’re Out” (a June release created with chart-topping British duo Billen Ted). Last year, Mae made waves with her much-acclaimed debut EP, no one else, not even you,” an eight-track project built on her fearlessly honest yet free-spirited approach to songwriting. Made with producers/co-writers like Rick Nowels (Madonna, Lana Del Rey), Jimmy Napes (Sam Smith, Alicia Keys), Skyler Stonestreet (Ariana Grande, Dua Lipa), and Kenny Beats (FKA twigs, Ed Sheeran), the EP brings Mae’s raw vulnerability to an immaculately composed but unpredictable brand of pop music.

About Mae Muller

North London singer-songwriter Mae Muller is intent on telling it precisely like it is – she’s frank, funny, and endlessly relatable. Mae’s debut EP “no one else, not even you,” offers a rarely glimpsed look at the tension between the thrill of new love and the fear of losing your sense of self. It showcases the fearlessly honest yet irresistibly fun song writing that’s hailed Mae as “a clear pop sensation in the making,” by Wonderland and the “new queen,” by NYLON. The year 2021 has seen her team up with chart-topping duo Billen Ted for “When You’re Out,” renowned rapper Big Zuu for “I Did It” and rising UK talent Master Peace for “Boyfriend”. To date, Mae has amassed over 200 million streams globally, with her songs featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday and Apple Music’s A-List Pop, In My Room, Future Hits, and more. She’s also stormed her way through the live world, selling out an early 2020 headline tour of the U.K. and earning an adoring worldwide following who’ve come to rely on her uncompromising self-expression. Ahead of her 2022 rescheduled UK tour (including the O2 Forum Kentish Town) this summer has seen Mae take to festival stages across the UK to huge crowds including the likes of Reading & Leeds, Bestival, Latitude and Sundown Festival.

AITCH — “LEARNING CURVE”

Manchester’s finest Aitch returns with his scorching new single “Learning Curve”—out now via Capitol Records / 10K Projects. Listen HERE and watch the video HERE.

Straight out of Manchester, in just two years 21-year-old Aitch has ascended from scion of underground UK hip hop to chart-dominating, platinum-selling, BRIT Award-nominated household name as the pioneering sound of New Manchester. Aitch has collaborated with Stormzy, Ed Sheeran, Stefflon Don, AJ Tracey and Headie One and accrued over 1 billion global streams and over 5 million worldwide record sales. This young superstar matches an infectious no-fucks-given attitude with crafty lyrics and rhythmic prowess.

Over a killer beat produced by frequent collaborator WhyJay, “Learning Curve” sees Aitch capture the mood of a generation desperate to make up for the lost summer of 2020. The video, shot by KC Locke, capitalizes on Aitch’s intuitive comic chops as he shifts multiple guises from “Harrison” the wedding guest to “Big Shell” the driver to streetwear shepherd.

Aitch stands at the vanguard of a new wave of talent and “Learning Curve” marks the start of a meteoric year for the young artist.

Limited Edition Electric Merchandise Line Launches Today

View Music Video Here

Pokemon’s 25th-anniversary celebration continues with today’s release of iconic recording artist Katy Perry’s new single and video, Electric. Katy, whose love for all things Pokemon dates back to childhood, when she played the original video games on her Game Boy, created the track especially for Pokemon 25: The Album, which will be released this fall by Universal Music Group’s Capitol Records. There’s no reason that this life can’t be electric, sings Katy in the anthemic track, which celebrates the joy inherent in pursuing a dream, buoyed by the love and support of friends. Katy’s collaborators on the song include The Monsters & Strangerz and Jon Bellion who teamed up with her on Daisies, a song from her new album Smile and Bruce Weigner. Listen to Electric here.

The official video for Electric helmed by Carlos Lopez Estrada, who directed the Disney feature film Raya and the Last Dragon received a YouTube Premiere with a fan watch party earlier today.

Sam Fischer x Demi Lovato “What Other People Say”

Following the huge success of his global smash hit This City and recent project HomeworkSam Fischer has teamed up with Demi Lovato to release his new single What Other People Say  out now via RCA Records. Listen HERE.

Written by Sam before his single This City became a hit, it was a song he always knew would be a duet. Sam was blown away when Demi Lovato became the perfect person to accompany him on vocals. What Other People Say was written about feeling alone and not wanting to let people down. The pairing takes two different lives and perspectives and unites them into one message of human experience, emotion and togetherness, so they are alone with one another in the song. It is a truly special track with a powerful, moving and relatable chorus. It is the next official single release for Sam since This City.

Sam says; “What Other People Say is a confession, realizing how far away you can get from who you are in an effort to be liked. It’s about the pressures of society and how getting caught up with the wrong things can change you.”

Demi says; “This song is a reflection on what it’s like to lose who you truly are in an effort to please other people and society.  It’s why I wanted to make this song with Sam – ultimately it’s about two humans coming together to connect and find solutions to their problems.”

Alongside the announcement of the single, Sam Fischer has also shared that he has been chosen as YouTube’s first ‘Artist on the Rise’ for 2021, following previous winners Mabel, Aitch, Freya Ridings, Mahalia, Beabadoobee and Celeste.

About Sam Fischer:

Always wearing his heart on his sleeve and with sincerity in both his lyrics and conversations, Sam Fischer released his project Homework last year. This project is a cathartic body of work, acknowledging the moments in life that Sam has struggled to deal with, and how these situations have changed him for the better.

Beginning as a TikTok sensation and quickly cementing itself in hearts and heads around the world, the emotive and heartfelt This City now stands at over 350 million worldwide streams, over 2 million worldwide sales and over 50 million video views. It has been certified Platinum in the UK with a Top 20 chart position, which steadily climbed over 19 weeks, and was also nominated for ‘Song of the Year’ at the 2020 Aria Awards. It was also a top 5 UK Airplay record, receiving radio support from Radio 1, Radio 2 (B List), Capital, Virgin and Bauer; alongside TV performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Late Late Show with James Corden and The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Australian born Sam Fischer first introduced himself with his Not A Hobby EP and has garnered incredible attention through his soulful voice and heartfelt lyrics. Touring North America with his friend Lewis Capaldi, he wowed crowds with his buoyant personality and pure love and talent for song-writing. Now based in LA, he not only has received acclaim for his own work, but he continues to solidify his spot as one of the hottest current writers, having worked with global pop superstars including Ciara, Lennon Stella, Louis Tomlinson, Elle King, Jessie J, Virginia To Vegas, and many more.

About Demi Lovato:

One of the world’s most successful music artists today, GRAMMY-nominated singer Demi Lovato first broke out in 2008 with the Disney Channel film Camp Rock and its sequel Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam in 2010.  Also in 2008, she released her debut studio album Don’t Forget.  What followed was what continues to be a hit musical career, with top selling and acclaimed hit records and world tours.  She also continues to be one of the biggest names on social media with an engaged combined following of over 108 million.

Lovato kicked off 2021 with a performance in the Presidential Inauguration Committee’s “Celebrating America” special following President Biden’s inauguration. This follows notable 2020 performances with the debut of her powerhouse ballad Anyone during a stripped-down performance at the GRAMMY Awards. She also performed the National Anthem at Super Bowl LIV. Lovato’s return to the stage was followed by the release of her empowering new single and video I Love Me, as well as collaborations with fellow global superstar Sam Smith on I’m Ready and dance music star Marshmello on the timely OK Not To Be OK.

The Academic x Them

THE ACADEMIC SHARE LYRIC VIDEO FOR THEM WATCH HERE

LIFTED FROM RECENT ACTING MY AGE EP

The Irish four-piece combine lighthearted beats and melodic riffs with a sweet indie-pop groove to create a catchy, feel-good track. Alt Press;
an artful blend of love songs that range from indietronica and power pop to alternative rock. Music Connection Quickly becoming one of 2020’s bands most likely to succeed.

Today, Irish indie rockers The Academicshare the lyric video for their song Them WATCH HERE. It is lifted from the band’s acclaimed EP, Acting My Age, released via Capitol Records at the turn of the Summer.

The Academic have been dropping their sharp, intensely listenable, moreish indie rock songs and finding themselves gaining more and more fans with each new release. It’s exactly what an artist wants and expects to happen, but The Academic are doing at a dizzying speed that finds them playing some of the UK’s more substantial venues before they’ve had much opportunity to introduce themselves.

Where the songs released to date have been suitably frenetic, Them shows a more reflective, soothing sound. Some light and shade to compliment the scorching riffs and heady melodies that have quickly become their trademark. It’s a mature finale to an introductory collection that should see The Academicsoar into 2021 and all the buzz of excitement that brings.

“I wrote it about my younger sister, who’s going through a lot of the house-parties-with-friends thing which I’m kind of out of now,” vocalist Craig Fitzgerald explains.

That Mullingar, Ireland has them down as hometown heroes and local-boys-about-to-explode, will doubtless be of importance to those who have studied the rulebook of city specific era-defining guitar acts from Oasis to Arctic Monkeys, Sam Fender to Kasabian. Primed now as Ireland’s most likely to, The Academicare ready to become what they deserve.

Fronted by Craig Fitzgerald, a man who gives good quote without over-selling the product, the young four-piece sit at the centre of a venn diagram that draws from the likes of Phoenix, The Strokes, Franz Ferdinand and Vampire Weekend.

“With Only Human, (Calum Scott) makes an impressive splash, a compelling debut album.”

“What I Miss Most” is propulsive, a soaring mid-tempo track about homesickness.”

Capitol Records Continues Celebration of 75th Anniversary With Second Installment of Holiday & Seasonal Classics

Capitol Records’ celebration of its 75th anniversary continues with the release of A Capitol Christmas Volume 2, a collection of 24 timeless holiday and seasonal classics sung by the label’s unmatched list of legends. Available now digitally and on 2CD, and December 1 as a double LP in gatefold cover, the album brings together some of pop music’s most iconic holiday songs with extremely rare recordings originally issued in very limited release. Volume 2’s list of singers includes Glen Campbell, The Beach Boys, Wayne Newton, Lena Horne, Dinah Shore, Nancy Wilson, Johnny Mercer, The Louvin Brothers and many more, with each contribution lovingly chronicled in liner notes provided by compilation producer Jay Landers.

 

Order and stream A Capitol Christmas Volume 2: http://lnk.to/CapitolChristmas2

A fitting companion to last year’s timeless collection, A Capitol Christmas Volume 2 continues to mine Capitol’s deep reservoir of holiday and seasonal standards sung by millions of celebrants each winter. The album features Wayne Newton’s jubilant takes on the rockabilly Christmas classic “Jingle Bell Rock” and perennial favorite “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” both originally released in 1966 on his first holiday album, Songs For A Merry Christmas, three years after his debut record on Capitol. Glen Campbell was one of Capitol’s most iconic stars of the ‘60s and ‘70s, recording a remarkable 40 albums for the label. In 1968, on the heels of a string of hit albums – the Grammy Award-winning By The Time I Get To Phoenix and Gentle On My Mind and the #1 record Wichita Lineman – Campbell teamed back up with Capitol’s in-house producer and arranger Al De Lory for That Christmas Feeling. The album is showcased here with Campbell’s exquisite rendition of the Elvis Presley-immortalized “Blue Christmas” and the lesser known “Old Toy Trains,” which was written by his good friend Roger Miller and shows off a different side of the singer. Second only to the Beatles, The Beach Boys were Capitol’s most popular recording act from the ‘60s until the end of the decade. For their fifth Capitol release, Brian Wilson turned his attention to the holidays, asking Four Freshmen’s arranger, Dick Reynolds, to write the charts for a 40-piece orchestra. The result was 1964’s The Beach Boys’ Christmas Album which featured their sunny take on “Frosty the Snowman” and Wilson’s original “Christmas Day,” which marked rhythm guitarist Al Jardine’s debut as a lead singer, both included here. 

 

The album spotlights some of the best of Capitol’s Christmas recordings from the 1940s, ’50 and ‘60s and transports listeners to a simpler time. Take thirteen-year-old Molly Bee’s “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus,” which caused a stir in 1952 when the song’s lyrics were condemned by the Catholic Church of Boston, but has survived to become a modern holiday classic, as easily recognizable as more traditional fare like “White Christmas.” Irving Berlin’s iconic song is represented here with a tranquil guitar and vocal-driven version by six-string legend Les Paul and his foil Mary Ford. Other chestnuts include crooner Al Martino’s lush, orchestral “Silver Bells” and Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians instrumental “Auld Lang Syne,” a song so ubiquitous it’s the soundtrack to New Year’s Eve around the world.

 

In addition to the beloved seasonal standards, the holiday compilation also features rare and interesting takes throughout like Nancy Wilson’s perfect interpretation of Frank Sinatra’s “The Christmas Waltz,” a true rarity that only appeared on a December 1968 limited-press promotional LP, The Capitol Disc Jockey Album. The incomparable Dinah Shore’s delivers a lightly swinging rendition of “Jingle Bells” originally issued on an unknown number of complimentary vinyl discs that were distributed as Christmas cards in Chevrolet dealerships around the country. Accomplished recording artist and movie star Lena Horne is spotlighted with the joyous “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and the beautiful, pensive “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” That song was a rare non-musical theater entry by Frank Loesser, composer of “Guys & Dolls” and “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” In Horne’s hands, the song becomes an alluring jazz ballad. And “Away in a Manger” in the hands of Charlie and Ira Louvin is nothing short of miraculous, full of raw emotion and the unrelenting shadow of sin the Louvins were so great at conveying.

 

In the true spirit of the holidays, A Capitol Christmas Volume 2 collects two dozen magical recordings that have helped to make the season bright for generations, bringing joy to the hearts and ears.
