Jessia x I Should Quit

Rising Canadian pop star and songwriter Jessia released the official video for her new single, I Should Quit.

Directed by Nina Kramer, the carefree video highlights Jessia’s struggle to accept her friends’ advice to stop making impulsive bad choices, while knowing that she should quit but in reality admits she has no intention of doing so. On the track, Jessia says “I’m really good at giving advice but not always good at taking it. I know what I SHOULD do but what’s the fun in always playing it safe? Sometimes you just need to fully accept that you are a hot mess.” 

Recently, Jessia was featured as Billboard Magazine’s Chartbreaker for the month of June. Her CRIA Gold-certified body acceptance anthem I’m not Pretty is currently Top 5 at Hot AC radio in Canada and features GRAMMY® Award-nominated artist Bebe Rexha on the official remix version of the track released last month. “I’m not Pretty” recently crossed 100 million+ streams and this week tops the Billboard Canada Emerging Artists Chart for the SEVENTH consecutive week at #1. 

I’m Not Pretty initially exploded on Tik Tok when Jessia introduced the a cappella hook of the song by sharing, “I don’t know if this is total trash, or if it’s actually a bop.” Turns out it was the latter, as the clip racked up 1 million views in a day. The candid lyrics describe a journey towards self-love and the emotions one can feel while on its path – a message that has instantly resonated with audiences all over the world. 

In addition to early support from international tastemakers, Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter, and producer Ryan Tedder personally reached out to Jessia upon hearing the song to champion her work and collaborate. Together they are putting the finishing touches on more new music—due out soon.

Jack Savoretti Too Much History image provided by Lisa DiAngelo and Capitol Records for use by 360 MAGAZINE.

Jack Savoretti x Too Much History

Today, UK singer/songwriter Jack Savoretti debuts a new track titled,  “Too Much History,” along with an accompanying visual.  The song is the second release from his forthcoming album – Europiana – due out June 25 on Capitol Records and available to pre-order now.  “When you have history with someone I think that is a good reason to celebrate, says Savoretti. This is the song to play when you’re celebrating just that.”

“Too Much History” follows Savoretti’s irresistible new single, “Who’s Hurting Who” — a disco-fueled pop track featuring the legendary Nile Rodgers. Watch the video HERE. Co-produced by Rodgers and Mark Ralph (Tove Lo, MARINA), “Who’s Hurting Who” arrives as a gloriously upbeat piece of soul-pop, perfectly showcasing Savoretti’s alluring vocal presence. With its dance-ready grooves, glistening guitar riffs, and lavish string arrangements, the song fully embodies the elegant escapism of Europiana, an album Savoretti describes as “the music of my childhood summers, remade for today.”

The seventh full-length from Savoretti, Europiana serves as the follow-up to his gold-certified album Singing to Strangers: a 2019 release that marked his first #1 on the UK album chart and earned praise from such outlets as The Telegraph (who hailed its “heady love songs mixing lush orchestrations with a tight, electric band”). This time around, Savoretti recorded at the famed Abbey Road Studios with leading producers like Cam Blackwood(London Grammar, Florence + the Machine), approaching the album with more confidence and imagination than ever before. “Singing to Strangers was my first album that wasn’t all about me, which I loved,” Savoretti says. “Europiana pushes that further. There are more characters and bigger concepts. I’m looking out at the world, not inwards.”

Jack Savoretti – Europiana

Jack Savoretti’s seventh album arrives with its own genre. Europiana is both its title and a term coined to capture the spirit of the songs and the sun-soaked influences they absorb. Think Riviera glamour and Italian elegance. Picture golden beaches, endless azure skies and piano bars with punters spilling onto cobbled streets. Grab a rosé – heck, the whole bottle – to spur memories of lunches that last until dusk and heading home with loved ones to dance until dawn.

“When I came up with the concept, some people thought I’d lost the plot,” laughs Jack. “What? You want to invent a new genre? In fact, it already exists – it just isn’t acknowledged.  Europiana isn’t a sound. It’s references and inspirations and the emotions they evoke. It’s the music of my childhood summers, remade for today.”

The sonic seeds of Europiana were sewn with 2019’s sumptuous Singing To Strangers, Jack’s first No.1 album and his third consecutive gold seller. The songs were begun in scorching sunshine last year at Jack’s Oxfordshire home, with doors and windows wide open.

“We were very fortunate with the weather,” says Jack. “My house became a haven for my whole band. The moment the first lockdown lifted, they were all calling me, asking to come hang out in the countryside.  For weeks we literally lived Europiana. They’d arrive and I’d make a big lunch, eaten outside with loads of rosé. Then we’d go inside to write. The sun and fun seeped into the songs. This isn’t an album we could have made in winter.”

Two guests joined in remotely- Nile Rodgers features on the disco-fueled first single ’Who’s Hurting Who,’ an instant classic doused in Riviera life and roller skate parks. John Oates, stranded in Nashville, played guitar and sang backing vocals on the lush “When You’re Lonely.”

Aptly for an album about family and friendship, you’ll also hear Jack’s wife and children sing. The bulk of the album was co-written with members of Jack’s longtime band, the striking strings were arranged by violinist and close friend Phil Granell and soul-pop belter “Calling Me Back To You” is a collaboration with friend and newcomer Gizmo Varillias.

Produced by Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, London Grammar and Singing to Strangers) and recorded late last year at Abbey Road, Europiana is the sound of an artist utterly at ease. Confidence oozes from every song. Risks are regularly taken, but nothing feels forced. Seven albums in, a fired-up, blissed-out Jack has firmly found his own lane.  ”I arrived with a suitcase of 18 songs and we recorded them all as live takes in ten days,” says Jack. “Everyone was so excited to be back at work, to experience the joy of making music again. As cheesy as it sounds, it was an emotional experience.”

Europiana’s romantic lyrics were largely the result of a loved-up lockdown where Jack appreciated time spent with his family.  “My wife and I were like kids again, the 20-year-olds who first fell in love,” he says. “We remembered why we are together and what our lives to now have really been about. Hence, lots of lyrics about love and happiness and not taking each other for granted.” ”I Remember Us,” both the album’s first track and the first song written, bottles that sentiment and opens with Jack’s wife and nine-year-old daughter singing. “I wanted a French/Italian choir sound, scruffy and innocent, more theatre than pop,” says Jack. “You can’t get that with professional singers. My daughter understood straight away because she hears that music at home.”

On the slinky “Secret Lives,” real-life husband and wife trade whispered lines, while beneath the frivolous fun of “Who’s Hurting Who” are some of Jack’s strongest lyrics.  “It’s my take on the great Kris Kristofferson’s song ‘Nobody Wins’,” he says. “About behaviour I’m all too familiar with, but hopefully is behind me. It’s a serious song in shiny packaging.”

“More Than Ever” finds Jack reminiscing about childhood summers spent in Italy. “Too Much History,” written with Joel Pott, has him committing to his relationship against a backdrop of beats, strings and his wife and daughter on backing vocals.

Disco-soul scorcher “Dancing In The Living Room” is not, as it may be perceived, about life in lockdown.  “We did do a lot of living room dancing during the first lockdown,” says Jack, “but the song is about going home with people you love. The highlight of nights out for me is always coming home and staying up dancing and drinking with friends or family.”

Rousing album closer “War of Words” was written as a lesson to his kids and features both his daughter and five-year old son.  “There are so many fiery topics at the moment, so many people shouting their opinions and unwilling to listen,” says Jack. “I realise how idealistic the lyrics are, but a war of words isn’t the answer.”

Jack approaches Europiana with more confidence and imagination than ever before.  “Singing to Strangers was my first album that wasn’t all about me, which I loved,” Jack says. “Europiana pushes that further. There are more characters and bigger concepts. I’m looking out at the world, not inwards.”

BabyJake – Head In The Clouds

Today, singer, songwriter BabyJake gifts fans with his new single, “Head In The Clouds,” taken from his debut EP, Don’t give me problems, give me wine, out this Friday—listen HERE and watch the visual HERE!

On the bouncy, jangly “Head in the Clouds,” BabyJake explores the hidden weight of emotional escape, juxtaposing bright guitarwork against moody lyrics about self-defeat and the pitfalls of depression and avoidance. Of the song, he says, “I’m always late. I have a hard time focusing. My mind is always somewhere else. ‘Head In The Clouds’ is about that…my daily struggles.”

Head In The Clouds” follows BabyJake’s breakout singles, “Confidant,” “Blue Cellophane” and “MadHappySad,” as well as his collaborations with Dillon Francis, “You Do You” and “Touch,” released earlier this spring. Stay tuned for Don’t give me problems, give me wine out this Friday!

ABOUT BABYJAKE

Jake Herring, the artist who records as BabyJake, has a complicated relationship with music. Growing up in Fort Meyers, Florida, Herring first picked up the guitar when he was eight years old. By the time he was in high school, he was juggling a deep, somewhat private love of music with genuine enthusiasm for sports and partying with his friends. He didn’t feel like he fit in in any specific social group, and soon felt alienated. For solace, Herring turned to his dad’s folk records, favoring the low-key contemplative sounds that resonated with the sense of alienation that he was feeling. Though he maybe wasn’t conscious of it at the time, Herring was priming himself to be a sort of musical chameleon. Well versed in the building blocks of rock music, the intimacy of folk, and with an innate understanding of the rap and pop music he grew up around, he was constructing a well of disparate influences to draw from when he eventually made a serious go at a music career. After his freshman year of college, Herring dropped out and started writing songs as often as he could, debuting as BabyJake in 2019 with his viral single “Cigarettes on Patios,” which has accumulated over 35 million streams to date. Before too long, he had his first official body of work, which quickly evolved into a multifaceted career that currently involves a record label called daycare with an added merch/streetwear line and a budding career penning and producing songs with other artists. His seven-song debut EP, Don’t give me problems, give me wine, feels like the result of an artist older than his years, someone who has lived recklessly and loved hard and is ready to put it all on record.

Alec King – Weekends

Buzzing Los Angeles-based artist Alec King releases his new video “Weekends” today via The Heavy Group/Republic Records.

Watch “Weekends” HERE.

Who doesn’t like dogs? Alec King’s latest video pulls at our heartstrings as he chills under a tree in a dog park (socially distancing, of course). Between leafing through a diary, Alec plays with various pups—some of whom remain six feet away from him. The scene underscores confessional rhymes and a catchy chorus, reflecting on the boredom of the moment and trying to get over a breakup.

“Weekends” follows the video release of “Way Up” and his song “Dangerous,” which received heavy radio support in his hometown of Denver and 2 million streams in a few months. At the end of last year, Alec King went on his debut US tour with diva on the rise Kiana Ledé. He performed to sold-out venues, including Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Washington DC and more, winning the crowd over with his infectious charm, incredible stage presence, and catchy songs.

Is there any line this guy won’t cross? Alec King is the kind of dude who rips bars about Wisconsin and god-awful ex-girlfriends with the same passion. He considers Curb Your Enthusiasm his “Torah.” He jumps into bathtubs with Porn Stars in music videos that he directs himself. He even went so far as to name his official debut EP, Greatest Hits, Vol. 1, and its successor, Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 (he backed up the latter with some heat). On the ‘gram, you’re just as likely to catch him in the shower as you are to catch him coloring with sidewalk chalk. This sort of personality endeared him to fans and peers alike. Posting up 10 million-plus streams under-the-radar and attracting acclaim from Dancing Astronaut, he has collaborated with legends such as Biz Markie and modern stars a la Rich The Kid and Kiana Ledé. Not to mention, he did all of this D.I.Y. primarily relying on an in-house team. In 2020, he floods the game with a series of singles and more surprises.

Duckwrth Coming Closer visual

Duckwrth – Coming Closer

Critically acclaimed Los Angeles rapper Duckwrth releases his new track “Coming Closer” feat. G.L.A.M. and Juliana Romana today.

Listen to “Coming Closer” feat. G.L.A.M. and Juliana Romana HERE.

On the track, which is produced by LA based twins Two Fresh and G.L.A.M., Duckwrth once again instigates unpredictable and unprecedented genre alchemy. He threads together bouncy rhymes while G.L.A.M. fires back with a seductive counterpoint as their bars come together before the dancefloor-ready hook sung by Juliana Romana. This anthem glides between hip-hop and electronic only to border on unexpected pop bliss.

“Coming Closer” arrives hot on the heels of his buzzing feel-good anthem “Find A Way” feat. Alex Mali, Radio Ahlee, & Bayli. HipHopDX praised its “melodic message of perseverance,” and Brooklyn Vegan described it as “powerful.” HYPEBEAST wrote, “The single serves as an uplifting anthem during these troubling times, featuring lyrics that showcase the artist’s ability to reminisce about the past and see a way forward.” Earmilk put it best, “The single plays as a welcome beam of light during a dark time.”

Over the last five years, LA-based wunderkind Duckwrth has quickly risen up the ranks as a promising star of the future of music. His collection of critically acclaimed projects including Nowhere (2015,) I’m Uugly (2016), Xtra Uugly (2017) and The Falling Man EP (2019), have transcended streaming platforms and landed in films, TV series, and brand ad campaigns and have received critical acclaim from a vast amount of outlets including NPR, The FADER, Complex, XXL and more. This cumulation has led the rapper to become an international touring staple, headlining shows globally and performing at Austin City Limits and opening for superstars Billie Eilish and Anderson .Paak. Duckwrth’s music has appeared on shows like CW’s All American, HBO’s Insecure and Real Time with Bill Maher and his song “Start A Riot” was featured on the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack. His music has appeared in campaigns for the likes of Cadillac, Microsoft, Peloton, Amazon and Apple Music, and he’s worked with fashion legacies like Levi’s, Vans and Fila, as well as high fashion men’s suit designer Paul Smith.

Florence + the Machine Debut Two Songs

Florence + the Machine debut two new songs, “Moderation” and “Haunted House” today. Listen here.

Produced by James Ford, “Moderation” is another driving force of nature that sees Florence’s new-found confidence ride high when it comes to love and relationships.

In contrast, “Moderation” is backed by the more delicate “Haunted House.” Produced by Matthew Daniel Siskin (Gambles), it’s an open and exposing song that captures Florence’s more intimate vocal style.

Following a history-making North American tour last year, Florence returns this spring for a headlining set at Governors Ball in New York. Tickets are available here.

“Moderation” and “Haunted House” marks the first new music from Florence + the Machine since their massively acclaimed 2018 album High as Hope, nominated for the Mercury Prize and named one of the best of the year by Rolling Stone, Refinery 29, Billboard, the New York Post, Uproxx and many more.

Critical praise for High as Hope:

“This time around, her voice is stronger than ever.”—The New York Times

 “High As Hope preserves Florence’s big, torrential melodrama, but it feels less like a storm than the soft light breaking in afterward amid the sober awe of a new day…Her solitude proffers a source of power, a confidence in her ability to express herself on her own.”—NPR

“The ethereal Florence Welch is still spine-chilling in an eccentric new bundle of distinctly anthemic tracks that will have you, too, cooing haikus up to the sky.”—Entertainment Weekly

 “The most rewarding Florence and the Machine full-length yet…Florence Welch possesses a supernatural voice—the kind that can summon long-buried ghosts, and then obliterate them fully with a gale-force roar.”—SPIN

“Intent upon inspiring listeners to dare to dream and to fight through the crushing gravity of the times, to love and cherish each other.”—New York Magazine’s Vulture

Today, award-winning globally renowned electronic music producer NETSKY shares a new club anthem “Ice Cold” [feat. David Guetta] via Republic Records and Casablanca Records. Get it HERE. Watch official visualizer HERE.

“Ice Cold” opens the duality of upcoming Palmtrees & Powerlines, the two-part project that explores both NETSKY’s magnetic brand of pop music (on Palmtrees) and his genre-bending innovation as a creator of club tracks (onPowerlines). “Ice Cold”, with its dancefloor vibes, finds its home in Powerlines, where previously released “Téquila Limonada” feat. A.CHAL, aligns with Palmtrees. Each song from Palmtrees & Powerlines will find a place within one of these two worlds NETSKY has built.

About their “Ice Cold” collaboration, Guetta excitedly said, “Working with NETSKY on this track was amazing. He’s such a great producer, and I’m really happy with the end result.

NETSKY recently produced two cuts on the Guetta’s recent album 7, including “Light Headed” [feat. Sia] and “Battle” [feat. Faouzia].

“’Ice Cold’ was such a fun song to make.” NETSKY adds about the new song, “I remember both Stargate and David Guetta making me crank up this demo in a LA studio and all of us vibing to it together. Working with David was amazing, it was inspiring seeing his work routine and energy in studio and I’m so excited to be releasing this single today.”

Stay tuned for more to come from Palmtrees & Powerlines.

Appropriately, he served as the official artist ambassador for the Belgian Olympic team. Everyone from Ed Sheeran and Dua Lipa to Jack Ü has also sought him out for remixes.
