About Renaissance

Beyoncés seventh studio  Renaissance,” has arrived. This is Beyoncé’s first album in six years and first since her world-conquering Lemonade. The 16-song project cites production by Hit-Boy for her song THIQUE.” Hit-Boy, who’s no stranger to collaborating with artists, is responsible for producing a string of anthemic records for Beyoncé (Sorry,” “Flawless,” and “Bow Down / I Been On” to name a few). 

Beyoncé stated in her Instagram post, “Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time in the world. It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving. My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration. I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are.”

Last July, Parkwood Entertainment, an imprint of Columbia Records, made pop history with Renaissance artwork.

Beyoncé’s cover art displayed her prominently seated on a crystal horse with a black background. While both of her hands appear to be placed on the steed, her upper half is on the side and facing us.

Nct 127 releases ay-yo via 360 magazine.

NCT 127 + AY-YO

Today, K-Pop phenomenon NCT 127 have released “Ay-Yo,” a repackaged version of their fourth studio album “질주 (2 Baddies)[우남W2] .” “Ay-Yo” features three brand-new tracks, including its title track by the same name. The physical album is set to release on March 3rd in the US.

Today’s repackage release features a total of 15 tracks including 12 tracks from the 4th album along with 3 new tracks “Ay-Yo”, “DJ”, and “Skyscraper (摩天樓[우남W3] ; 마천루)”. Title track “Ay-Yo” is a hip-hop dance track with a core message of moving forward with intention in the midst of uncertainty, as the band continues to establish the values they carry with them. Additionally, “DJ” is a funky up-tempo track that details how the members become DJs themselves, gifting special moments with their own-selected playlists. “Skyscraper (摩天樓; 마천루)” is a powerful hip-hop track detailing ambition, overcoming limits and climbing to the top. With the continued participation of famous writers from the 4th album “질주 (2 Baddies)” such as KENZIE, Dem Jointz, Andreas Öberg, and producer Simon Petré, the album is further enhanced by the additional rapping talent of members TAEYONG and MARK on “DJ” and “Skyscraper (摩天樓; 마천루)”.

The repackage arrives four months following the original release of “질주 (2 Baddies)” this past September. The album debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, making the group only the second K-Pop artist in history to land three albums in the Top 5. The album was praised for its versatility, with Billboard writing, “The album’s sound, meanwhile, shows off the idols’ eclectic versatility as they run through R&B, pop, electronic dance and hip-hop-leaning sounds,” and NYLON claiming, “They’re charismatic and confident, and they’re not afraid to get loud with it.”

NCT 127 recently completed an arena tour across U.S. and South America. The engagements included stops across the United States, Chile, Columbia, and Mexico, as well as three back-to-back shows in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Just this past week, the group also hosted a special virtual event and concert experience on Roblox, a global immersive 3D platform that reimagines the way people come together to connect, create and express themselves. In celebration of their special anniversary, “127 Day,” The NCT 127 Concert Experience included a free interactive virtual concert performance and additional experiences including featured avatar drops. The event marked the first concert in a dedicated K-pop experience on the platform, as well as the largest ever official group performance by any band on Roblox, with nine band members performing virtually. The NCT 127 World experience has so far drawn over 4 million total visits.

Sam Smith releases Gloria via 360 MAGAZINE.

Sam Smith – Gloria Album

Multi-Platinum, GRAMMY®, BRIT, Golden Globe, and Oscar winning artist/songwriter Sam Smith released Gloria, their fourth studio album, today via Capitol Records. Download/stream the album HERE. Smith will perform at the 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards® on February 5 and kick off the North American leg of GLORIA The Tour on July 25. The official video for Smith’s new single, “I’m Not Here To Make Friends,” was unveiled today. Smith declares, “I’m not here to make friends…I need a lover!” on the bold disco-pop track, which they wrote with Stargate and Jessie Reyez and recorded with producer Calvin Harris in Los Angeles.

In the accompanying video, Smith emerges from a helicopter, dressed in the stunning hot pink gown they wore on “Saturday Night Live,” and is escorted into a sumptuous costume ball held at a historic English estate. Helmed by Ukrainian director Tanu Muiño (Katy Perry, Normani), the video was shot at Ashridge House, which was once a royal residence to King Henry VIII and Princess Elizabeth I. La Big Bertha makes a cameo appearance.

Watch “I’m Not Here To Make Friends” HERE.

Gloria also includes “Gimme” feat. Koffee and Jessie Reyez, which Billboard hailed as “a lush, dancehall riff,” and the GRAMMY®-nominated, RIAA-certified Platinum single “Unholy” feat. Kim Petras, which spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and four weeks atop the UK Official Singles Chart. Amassing over one billion combined global streams to date, “Unholy” was hailed as one of the best songs of 2022 by numerous critics.

View their recent performance of “Unholy” on “Saturday Night Live” HERE. See Smith, accompanied by a choir, perform the album’s title track for the audience – and Sharon Stone – HERE. “Gloria” is not a nod to a person, past or present, but to that bristling, enigmatic life force, which Smith has christened Gloria. They see it as “my queer love hymn, saying life is a song to Gloria, the thing I can’t put a word to. I don’t know if it’s nature or a feminine energy inside me that I’m setting free.”

Smith’s fourth album is not only a creative revelation but something of a personal revolution. After three soulful, poignant albums – In The Lonely Hour (2014), The Thrill Of It All (2017) and Love Goes (2020) – that were rewarded with a staggering 37 million albums sold, 276 million singles, 50 billion multi-platform streams and a host of honors that include four GRAMMY Awards, three BRITs, one Oscar and a Golden Globe, Smith embarked on their fourth album with a self-appointed challenge.

“I was not gonna write a heartbreak album,” Smith declares. “A challenge that was huge! I wanted this to be the opposite. When I was a kid, just walking out of the house, I needed armor. Rihanna, Robyn, Beyoncé, they were my armor. And I feel like SGloria is the album I needed that I never had.”

“Sam Smith’s ‘Gloria’ Is Their Deepest Album Yet,” observed Rolling Stone, noting that it “features guests like Kim Petras, Koffee, and Ed Sheeran, but their own personal growth is at the heart of the music.” Smith explains, “It feels like emotional, sexual and spiritual liberation. It feels like I’ve got my faith back in my work. So it was beautiful, with this album, to sing freely again, for me. It feels like a coming of age.”

Rita Ora released You Only Love Me via 360 Magazine.

Rita Ora – You Only Love Me

2023 marks the dawn of a new era for one of the most successful British female artists of the 21st century, Rita Ora, as she releases brand new single “You Only Love Me.” 

Co-written by Rita and produced by Lewis Thompson, “You Only Love Me” is inspired by her personal experience of feeling vulnerable at the very start of her romantic journey. Underpinned by love and passion, the song opens with a voice memo from Oscar and BAFTA award-winning filmmaker Taika Waititi“You Only Love Me” is an infectious, upbeat pop anthem guaranteed to soundtrack fans’ very own love stories and be a floor filler for months to come.

Rita says: “With ‘You Only Love Me’ and my upcoming album, I wanted to capture the vulnerability I’ve experienced as I opened myself up to love and entered a new phase of life. Learning to let go of the past to make way for new experiences is a deeply personal process, and one I felt compelled to document through my music – the journey was not always easy, but I’ve come out of it stronger and filled with more love than I ever thought possible.”

“You Only Love Me” is the first track to be lifted from the internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter’s highly anticipated upcoming album – a deeply personal body of work intrinsically linked to a new chapter in Ora’s life and career. It is also Rita’s first release since inking a partnership with BMG, which will see her own all her future master recordings and enjoy artistic control in a way that she hasn’t had previously. Next Wednesday, 1st February, Rita will make her debut performance of the track on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

The accompanying music video for “You Only Love Me, directed by acclaimed creative Charlie Sarsfield and shot in the LA suburbs, premiered globally on MTV today and is one of Rita’s favourites made to date. Depicting a fictional wedding through the lens of a Stepford Housewives meetsAlice in Wonderland style narrative, it features hyperreal scenes of a bride’s big day turned tumultuously upside-down, (with overzealous “badmaids,” the venue going up in flames and more), and cameos from well-wishers Kristen StewartLindsay LohanJodie Turner-Smith, Chelsea Handler, Addison Rae, cake delivery boy Alexander Stewart and fairy godmother Sharon Stone.

Rita Ora’s multi-platinum music career has won her commercial and critical acclaim with 13 UK Top 10 singles and four UK Number One singles. She holds the record for the most UK Top 10 singles by a British female artist. In the US alone, Rita’s acclaimed singles and star-studded collaborations have earned her a #3 Billboard Hot 100 song, 7 Top 10 hits on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs Chart, 5 of which reached #1, and 6 Top 20 singles on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart.

RITA ORA’S “YOU ONLY LOVE ME” IS AVAILABLE ACROSS ALL PLATFORMS HERE.

PRIVATE COLLECTION OF BBC ANTIQUES ROADSHOW’S MUCH LOVED EXPERT HENRY SANDON (MBE) HEADS TO AUCTION via 360 MAGAZINE.

HENRY SANDON PRIVATE COLLECTION

PRIVATE COLLECTION OF BBC ANTIQUES ROADSHOW’S MUCH LOVED EXPERT HENRY SANDON (MBE) HEADS TO AUCTION

Ceramics and pottery spanning decades to be offered

Ceramics specialist and antiques expert Henry Sandon (MBE)

Chorley’s auctioneers is delighted to announce that it will offer the private collection of BBC Antiques Roadshow’s long-serving expert, Henry Sandon (MBE), known for his passion for porcelain and pottery and in particular, Royal Worcester porcelain. The prized collection of many of his treasured pieces will be offered in a sale titled The Henry Sandon Ceramic Study Collection at Chorley’s on Tuesday, 18th April, 2023

Featured image: An important Royal Worcester plate by famous Worcester artist Harry Stinton (1883-1968)

Estimate £1,000-£1,400

As well as being a world-recognised antiques expert, Henry Sandon (b. 1928) is an author and former lecturer, as well as the father of the renowned TV ceramics expert John Sandon. He began his career with an interest in archaeology, which offered a deep insight into the world of ceramics from all countries, cultures and decades. In 1967 he was appointed curator of the Dyson Perrins Museum at the Royal Worcester Factory, a position he held until 1982, but he is most well-known for his role as an antiques expert on the long-running BBC television show Antiques Roadshow.

Speaking about his passion for ceramics and his extensive collection, Henry says: “I wanted to title my collection ‘Ancient and Modern’ like the hymnbook, for it was choral music that brought me to Worcester. I came to teach at the grammar school and to sing in the wonderful cathedral choir, and once in Worcester, I discovered ceramics everywhere. I dug up Roman and Medieval pots in my garden by the Cathedral and was captivated by their history. Digging up broken pots led me to attend local auctions and antique shops filled with Worcester porcelain.

I also discovered modern pottery. Geoffrey Whiting, one of Britain’s greatest Studio Potters, held classes in Worcester. I was a terrible pupil, but from Geoffrey Whiting I learned to love his pots and those of many other modern potters, who became good friends. In 1967 the Museum of Royal Worcester needed a new curator and my enthusiasm got me the job that changed my life.

A Royal Worcester vase by famed Worcester artist Harry Davis (1885-1970). Estimate £800-£1,200.

I learnt the history of Worcester porcelain from scratch, helped by wonderful mentors, three of whom gave me the same advice: Jim Kiddell from Sotheby’s, the great collector Dr Bernard Watney and my dear friend Geoffrey Godden all told me that the best way to learn about ceramics was to form a study collection. It didn’t matter that I could only afford damaged examples of the early pottery I coveted. I knew it was important to buy as much as I could and to hold it and live with it. These experts would come to the museum to help me sort the finds from my important excavations on the site of the earliest Worcester china factory. At this time, fifty years ago, Worcester still had a flourishing china factory. I spent much of my time taking important visitors around the factory and meeting the great artists who had spent their entire lives working at the porcelain works. People like the modeller Doris Lindner and the painter Daisy Rea had so many wonderful stories to tell. Above all, I cherish every moment I was able to spend with Harry Davis, who I believe was the greatest porcelain painter of all time. 

Attending sales at Bruton Knowles I met and became a special friend of the legendary Arthur Negus.” Arthur Negus (1903-1985) was the first ‘Television Antiques Expert’, having starred in the popular antiques TV show Going for a Song. He took part in the pilot for the Antiques Roadshow in 1977 and was an immediate hit with viewers. This was the beginning of a brand-new genre in television, but no one could have predicted its enduring appeal to this day.

Henry continues: “We got on really well and Arthur showed me that a passion and enthusiasm like ours would rub off on others, through lectures and through the new medium of television. For Birmingham University I began teaching evening classes covering the whole history of ceramics and instead of using slides like most lecturers, I took along actual pieces from my rapidly expanding study collection, pots my students could hold for themselves.

Meanwhile appearances with Arthur Negus on Going for a Song and Arthur Negus Enjoys, led me to join, in 1979, The Antiques Roadshow, which gave me a chance to share my love of ceramics with a massive audience around the world.

PRIVATE COLLECTION OF BBC ANTIQUES ROADSHOW’S MUCH LOVED EXPERT HENRY SANDON (MBE) HEADS TO AUCTION via 360 MAGAZINE.

A north coast Peruvian stirrup vessel in the form of a seated warrior holding a club, dating from circa 200-600 AD.

Estimate £300-£400.

I had to sell part of my study collection forty years ago when I went to Canada as the Director of The George Gardiner Museum in Toronto, one of the world’s leading centres for the study of ceramics of all kinds. When I returned to Worcester I gave special encouragement to many new manufactories of ceramics, where I found traditional skills were still preserved, but struggling to survive in tough conditions. My name and enthusiasm for real craftsmanship helped British ceramics factories large and small and for my efforts I was rewarded with an MBE from the Queen for services to Charity and to the Ceramics Industry. Now that I am older than most of the ceramics in my collection, I am no longer able to pick up and hold and cherish every one of the hundreds of pieces I have lived with all around me. I need other people to help care for me now and so it’s time to find new owners to care for all my beloved pots. I have known Simon Chorley way back since Arthur Negus’s days and so I asked him to organise this sale. Apart from just a few special favourites for my family to treasure, it is time for all of my pots to join new study collections.”

Titled The Henry Sandon Ceramic Study Collection, the auction will include many examples by Worcester artists that Henry describes above, particularly by his great friend, the late Harry Davis, as well as more modern studio pieces by another friend, Geoffrey Whiting. Pots from 2000BC to the present day will grace Henry Sandon’s sale and people will have the opportunity to buy a piece of history, as well as a memento of one of our ‘National Treasures’.

Among the highlights is an important Royal Worcester plate by Harry Stinton (1883-1968), a member of one of the most famous Worcester families of artists – the Stintons painted at the factory for almost 160 years.

A stoneware vase by the revered studio potter Geoffrey Whiting (1919-1988). Estimate £300–£500.

The plate in the sale is from a service commissioned in 1928, by the founder of another famous family, William Keith Kellogg (1860-1951) of the legendary cereal company, trading as Kellogg’s. Kellogg ordered two sets, both comprising just 25 plates, painted by Royal Worcester’s two best artists. The costly red background on the plates was chosen to match the colour of the famous Kellogg’s logo.

In 1985 Henry Sandon advised on the sale of the service, being offered in sets of twelve plates, and was allowed to choose the one ‘spare’ plate of each design for himself. The current example is the one he chose. It features a rich border with raised gilding and in the centre is a watermill in a snow scene. It is signed by Harry Stinton and carries an estimate of £1,000-£1,400.

Another important piece in the sale is a Royal Worcester vase by the famed Worcester artist Harry Davis (1885-1970). In his last years, Harry became a great friend of Henry Sandon. Harry had started  at the Worcester factory aged just 13 and soon gained a wonderful reputation for his work. In time, Harry became foreman of the ‘Men’s Painters department’ at the factory, as well as teaching apprentices joining Royal Worcester.

In 1928 Harry Davis helped Harry Stinton with the Kellogg’s service and in 1938 he painted a vase for the Australian cricketer Sir Donald Bradman to commemorate his three double centuries on the New Road Ground at Worcester. Henry Sandon was later to enjoy a wonderful correspondence with Don Bradman about cricket and the incredible Harry Davis vase and in 2004 Henry travelled to Australia to see the Bradman Vase for himself. Harry Davis created a very different vase in Henry’s sale featuring a stag in a snow scene in experimental sunset colouring. Painted by Harry Davis in 1921, Henry acquired the vase from the artist himself and it is estimated to fetch £800-£1,200.

A toby jug in the form of Henry Sandon by Staffordshire maker Kevin Francis Ceramics. Estimate £50-£100.

A stoneware vase by the celebrated studio potter Geoffrey Whiting (1919-1988) also features in the sale. Northumberland-born Geoffrey trained as an architect but fell in love with the craft of pottery and set up his own pottery in Worcestershire. Henry Sandon is passionate about Geoffrey Whiting’s pots and lent a number of his pieces to the Whiting Retrospective Exhibition, including this slab-form vase, which has ‘resist’ decoration made using a lost-wax technique. The vase carries an estimate of £300-£500.

An example of one of the older pieces in the collection, is a north coast Peruvian stirrup vessel in the form of a seated warrior holding a club. From the Mochica (Moche) culture, it dates from circa 200-600 AD and is estimated to fetch £300-£400. A fun addition to the sale is a toby jug in the form of Henry Sandon by Staffordshire maker Kevin Francis Ceramics. The jug features experimental colours and was not put into production, making it truly unique. It carries an estimate of £50-£100.

Simon Chorley, commenting on the collection says: “Chorley’s is delighted to have been instructed to sell the collection, as we have had a wonderful, long-standing relationship with both Henry and Arthur.” He tells us: “I first met Henry Sandon at the Three Choirs Festival at Gloucester in 1965. I was a chorister at Gloucester Cathedral, while Henry was a Lay Clerk at Worcester. In the early 1970s I joined the firm Bruton Knowles and was under the wing of Arthur Negus. Henry often attended auctions and occasionally met and chatted with Arthur.

It was marvellous to see both experts really enjoying beautiful objects throughout their many appearances on the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow. After Arthur’s death in 1985, I was involved with arranging the auction of his treasured collection. Henry very much enjoyed that sale and it is now a privilege for me to be involved in arranging Henry’s sale. In 2002 I was invited as a guest to This is Your Life, where Henry Sandon was the surprised recipient of the ‘Red Book’ and the final surprise guest was Anne, Arthur Negus’ daughter. She enthused about her late father’s great friendship with Henry and is now thrilled that Chorley’s are conducting Henry’s auction, a conclusion to the two friends’ and magnificent broadcasters’ life-long enjoyment of collecting.”
