Brittany Howard × Jaime

Jaime – the first solo album from Brittany Howard – has been reimagined by an astonishing cross-section of the five-time GRAMMY winner’s peers. Featuring fresh takes and remixes of the album’s 11 songs, Jaime Reimagined will be released by ATO Records in digital format on July 23 with the vinyl edition to follow on September 24. See below for track listing.

Today, Howard shared the shimmering single “Presence” Little Dragon Remix along with the b-side, “Tomorrow” BadBadNotGood Remix.

Brittany Howard noted, “Making Jaime was so much fun for me because I was able to explore so many different genres of music. There were no rules. This reimagination project has been no different. I have been honored to have so many incredible artists from all musical worlds interpret my songs in such interesting and different ways.”

Little Dragon said, “Working with Brittany’s voice felt really inspiring, because it radiates emotions and energy.”

BadBadNotGood explained, “We’ve been fans of Brittany Howard’s work from a distance for years but haven’t had the chance until now to connect. She has an absolutely incredible voice and her songwriting style is really unique. The original of ‘Tomorrow’ had such a special, floating sound that it was difficult to find a direction to go in for the remix. We tried to give the amazing vocals a new context and build around that. We were honored to have the opportunity and hope everyone enjoys it!”

Howard will headline the legendary Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on September 18. She will also be performing at numerous festivals, including Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Outside Lands and Life Is Beautiful, and touring with My Morning Jacket. Tickets are available HERE. See below for itinerary.

Fans who pre-order the digital edition of Jaime Reimagined will instantly receive the Little Dragon and BadBadNotGood remixes plus Bon Iver’s remix of “Short and Sweet,”EARTHGANG’s remix of “Goat Head,” Michael Kiwanuka’s version of “13th Century Metal” and “Stay High again..” from Fred again.. and Joy Anonymous.

Childish Gambino also offers up an interpretation of “Stay High.” The 9th Wonder remix of “He Loves Me” features Common while Gitty’s remix of “Baby” features Syd. Other artists who contributed to Jaime Reimagined include Emily King, Laura Mvula, Georgia Anne Muldrowand Jungle.

As the frontwoman and guitarist for Alabama Shakes, Howard became one of music’s most celebrated figures – the band won four GRAMMYs (out of its nine nominations) and she has performed everywhere from the Obama White House to the main stage at Lollapalooza, where she sang with Paul McCartney at his invitation. But for her solo debut, Howard boldly decided to explore new directions, with diverse instrumentation and arrangements and intimate, revelatory lyrics. Howard titled the album after her sister, who taught her to play the piano and write poetry, and who died of cancer when they were still teenagers.

Jaime was awarded four stars by Rolling Stone, MOJO and Q, named the Best Album of 2019 by NPR and nominated for a GRAMMY Award in the Best Alternative Music Album category.Praising Jaime as “a candid autobiography in funk,” The New York Times said, “With a voice that can go to the roadhouse, the church or deeply private places, she exorcises troubles with the music’s sheer pleasure.”

“Stay High” won a GRAMMY for Best Rock Song after spending three weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs chart. It was Public Radio’s Most Popular Song of 2019 and named by Pitchfork and others as one of the year’s best songs. “History Repeats,” “Goat Head”and “Short And Sweet” received GRAMMY nominations in the rock, R&B and American roots categories respectively.

Pitchfork said, “Jaime is a daring turn in just about every way.” Rolling Stone hailed it as“Brittany’s searing manifesto…her tour-de-force solo debut.” Entertainment Weekly praised Jaimeas a “genre-bending solo record that is both intensely personal and achingly universal.”

Terrell Hines Releases New Single Radon Dungeon

Today, Georgia-born, Los Angeles-based pop visionary Terrell Hines released his new single, “Radon Dungeon.” On the effortlessly smooth, funk-laced track, Hines conjures up visions of a toxic, worse-case scenario but emerges with a seductive anthem worthy of a post-apocalyptic discothèque. As Substream Magazine observed upon the release of his 2019 debut EP, he’s “an artist that knows there’s nothing he can’t turn into song.” Listen HERE. The accompanying visualizer, which was shot in his hometown of Atlanta, was directed by Jelani Miller (SoFaygo, Tony Shhnow, 10KDunkin). View HERE

“’Radon Dungeon’ is world of fun -an underground space for the outcasts of society,” says Terrell Hines.

“Radon Dungeon” is the follow-up to the euphoric “Who Do You Love?,” which Netflix tapped to fuel its summer movie preview. Hines, hailed as a “Breakout Emerging Artist” by Billboard, has already amassed more than five million streams without releasing an album or touring the U.S. He displays a polymathic musicality, honed in part during his studies on scholarship at Berklee College of Music. In 2019, he appeared on the title track to Beck’s Hyperspace album and saw a major boost after his song “Get Up” was used during an Apple Keynote.

In 2020, Hines released his first tape, Portal One: The Mixtape, a nine-track project that featured the raw energy of live instrumentation. Watching the events of the summer unfold prompted him to remix “Get Up,” adding a new verse from Vince Staples. NPR Music observed, “…in the context of this summer’s movement, lyrics like ‘I’ve been waiting my whole life’ along with the driving percussion and the increasing desperation in Hines’s voice, begin to take the shape of shouts for justice in a protest moving down a city block.” In October, he released the electrifying single “We’re All Gonna Be Killed,” which reflected on “the tension of 2020 so far.”

Hines creates an entire ecosystem for his songs, where sonic structures and lyrics are just as likely to be inspired by the sociopolitical as the personal, by functional architecture as abstract art, by the austere science of survivalism as the limitless potential of technology. The best part is, you don’t have to know all that to feel the holistic magic of his work.

Seinabo Sey – Sweet Life EP

SWEET LIFE, SEINABO SEY’S NEW EP, IS OUT TODAY, Listen To New Single Rom-Com HERE, Combined Global Streams Of Sey’s Songs Surpass One Billion

Seinabo Sey returns with the four-song EP Sweet Life, her first new music since 2018’s I’m a Dream. Released today by Capitol Records, Sweet Life is available for download / streaming HERE. See below for track listing.

Today, Sey shared the breezy single Rom-Com (feat. Hannes). Trading off on the verses, they trace the story of two people who want to fall in love but are held back by their fears. Listen to Rom-Com HERE. Hannes, who opened for Sey at Sweden’s Way Out Festival, debuted his intriguing blend of pop, soul, jazz and R&B with the single I Went to The Jungle.

Sey, who rose to prominence in 2015 following the release of two EPs and her debut album, Pretend, which TIME magazine called One of the Year’s Best Debut Albums, has amassed over one billion combined global streams to date. Kygo’s remix of Younger, from Pretend, climbed to No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Play chart. Sey’s 2018 follow-up album, I’m a Dream contained the singles I Owe You Nothing and Remember (featuring Jacob Banks).

The boundary-blurring artist has won four Swedish GRAMMY awards and topped the HypeMachine chart five times. In the beginning of 2020, Sey had just started touring as opening act for Ms. Lauryn Hill when Covid-19 struck. Sey spent the pandemic crafting an EP that ferries listeners to a place of peace.

I wanted to create a world that was like TLC’s ‘Waterfalls,’ just a little paradise for Black girls, where everything’s okay and nothing is a problem, Seinabo Sey explains. We’re all like lounging, eating fruits or something. The scene she describes is not dissimilar to the conditions in which she crafted her new EP, quarantining on the island of Gotland, off the coast of Sweden.

On Blue, she sings about accepting her circumstances, gaining a reverence for herself and a slower pace of life as she connects with different surroundings. Treetops over these white rocks tell me go slow baby, slow/ real life tells me to stand up I be like no, baby, no, she sings. I’m Just Mad (Bitch) is a defiant anthem where the singer stays strong in the face of a breakup. The EP’s closing track, Sweet Dreams, is an ode to her pandemic state of mind, reflective and focused on achieving her goals amid the chaos happening elsewhere.

She says there’s a vibe of friendship running through this record. The bold cover art is the name of the EP braided into her hair by one of her oldest friends. Meanwhile, she entrusted one of her other best friends, Isaac, to write four demos for the EP, which is a marked departure from her typically self-penned projects.

There are a million different ways of doing things and I’ve tried a few, but this is really my way of creating music, she says. I have wanted to do that since I was a kid. I started off with playing in bands where you always kind of create things together. So that’s been a very major difference for me this time around.

  2. Rom-Com

Terrel Hines – Who Do You Love?

On his new single “Who Do You Love?” Georgia-born, Los Angeles-based pop visionary Terrell Hines sings of an apocalyptic “war on earth” yet finds transcendence. “So much going on can’t help myself,” he wails in the chorus. “If we’re all going down then what do you desire? I’ll take you higher.” The song joyfully blurs sonic borders, opening with a glittery burst of electronics before giving way to psychedelic soul, tense funk, euphoric blues-rock, and gospel-pop anthemics. Listen HERE.

Saturated in vibrant colors, the animated lyric video that accompanies “Who Do You Love?” introduces a character who’s not afraid to go against the grain, pulling a heavy load backwards. A sign nods to Hines‘ hometown of Dublin, Georgia.

Hines, who has already amassed more than five million streams without releasing an album or touring the U.S., displays a polymathic musicality, honed in part during his studies on scholarship at Berklee College of Music. In 2019, he appeared on the title track to Beck’s Hyperspace album and saw a major boost after his music was used during an Apple Keynote.

NPR Music observed, “in the context of this summer’s movement, lyrics like.

The best part is, you don’t have to know all that to feel the holistic magic of his work. We hear immediacy, exuberance, freedom, and ingenuity:  music as surprising as it is captivating, while he sees a burning question: “If shit popped off and society had to be rebuilt,” asks Hines, “how would I do it?”

Asiahn releases new single with video - Get Away

Asiahn releases new single – Get Away

Jersey-born, Carolina-raised, R&B singer/songwriter Asiahn returns today with her new single “Get Away,” and a video to accompany it. Fluttering harps and serpentine bass-lines set the tone for the song’s welcome escapism, as she dreams of better days in the arms of a lover. Listen HERE. The peaceful video places Asiahn in a dreamy desert, living out that message. Watch HERE.

“Get Away” offers simple pleasures in both Asiahn’s beckoning lyrics and the meditative production. 

“The Inspiration for the song came from the frustration with what’s going on in the world today and wanting to get away to just exist. In my mind I wanted to create a song that felt like the experience of being free.” Asiahn states. When speaking on conceptualizing the visual, Asiahn continues “We’re over sexualized, overused, and most of the time unrealistic in what we look like. I wanted to show a goddess-like depiction of two females in love. Not overly sexual, but sensual, powerful & feminine. The concept circles around the belief that beautiful things can grow in the most unexpected places.”

This new track follows Asiahn’s self-assured single “Gucci Frames” and her 2019 project Love Train 2, the latest installment in a series that once led Okayplayer to call her “a rare jewel in an industry full of fool’s gold.” “Get Away” is the fruit of a new phase for Asiahn that’s seen her focusing on her growth as a person and an artist. If this single is any indication, you’ll want to stop whatever you’re doing when her forthcoming EP arrives.

Carmen DeLeon releases new single X video – Juegas

Carmen DeLeon is joined by acclaimed Colombian artist FEID on her new single, “Juegas,” a playful, romantic ode to the start of a new relationship.

View “Juegas” Official Video HERE

Paired with a pop-infused beat, the song’s lyrics evoke the “butterflies in the stomach” deeling that are a hallmark of infatuation. Listen to “Juegas,” which was released today by Capitol Music Group and Universal Music Latin Entertainment, HERE.

Earlier this month, FEID received TWO 2020 LATIN GRAMMY nominations for BEST REGGAETON PERFORMANCE and BEST URBAN MUSIC ALBUM, both recognizing the success of his collaboration with Justin Quiles on PORFA and his breakthrough album, FERXXO (VOL. 1: M.O.R.).

“Juegas” is the follow-up to “Volver,” the summer 2020 single that launched Carmen DeLeon’s career. She and FEID wrote the new song with Maxium, Mista Bombo, Leon Yamil and Jonathan Tobas. It was produced by Maxium, Mista Bombo and Leon Yamil.

“Juegas” is as authentic as it comes, especially when DeLeon describes what she draws inspiration from and how she puts pen to paper.

Carmen DeLeon says, “I wrote “Juegas” one night in Miami around one a.m. with one of my best friends. I wanted to write a love song that focused on the need to give and receive in a relationship. To me, that’s the best part of living life with a partner. I hope that people feel inspired when they hear this song and understand the importance of giving and receiving.”

Directed and produced by Gian Rivera (aka “Death of Gian”), who helmed Feid‘a video for “PORFA (Remix),” the official video for “Juegas” was shot in Miami and is infused with the kind of energy and enthusiasm that is characteristic of DeLeon’s style and artistic sensibility. Much like the theme of reciprocity that DeLeon highlights, the song’s combination of vibrant beat, melody and lyrics remind listeners that music is the ultimate antidote. Watch the video HERE.

Volver,” Carmen DeLeon’s debut single, has already amassed more than 800,000 combined global streams. It was produced by Tainy, the Puerto Rican mastermind who’s been responsible for some of the biggest hits in reggaeton and trap. In a few short months, DeLeon has grown a considerable following on her social channels, with 30,000 monthly listeners on Spotify and more than two million views on her YouTube channel. Born in Venezuela, she is now based in Miami.

Euphoria said, “Carmen DeLeon commands the world as her stage with fiery gusto and an undeniable sense of positivity. Further proving her right as music’s next breath of fresh air, the spry 19-year-old artist masters the microphone with “Volver,” a fiery ode to budding passion and power.”

Wonderland noted, “Sharing her struggles with anxiety, the highs and lows of these uncertain times and how it’s okay not to be okay, DeLeon brings her Latin roots to the fore on the laid-back tune, reminding us all exactly why she’s a force to be reckoned with.”

Praising the sing-along banger, Idolator declared, “Carmen DeLeon needs to be on your pop radar.”
