GWEN STEFANI “LET ME REINTRODUCE MYSELF”

Global superstar Gwen Stefani releases her new reggae-tinged single “Let Me Reintroduce Myself” today on Interscope Records. With the release, Stefani is featured on New Music Daily on Apple Music. “Let Me Reintroduce Myself” is available now at all digital retailers.  Watch the lyric video for “Let Me Reintroduce Myself” HERE.

Stefani will debut the single with a performance on tonight’s episode of The Voice, airing at 8 pm ET/7 pm CT, where she is now in her fifth season as a coach on NBC’s four-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series.    

Recorded in quarantine and co-written with relentless hitmaker Ross Golan alongside rising songwriter/producer Luke Niccoli, the single finds Stefani reminding fans of what she does best: create vibrant, uplifting music that is real and honest to who she is as an artist. 

“This song is a way of saying I’m back with new music. It’s a fun, lighthearted song because I got inspired and hope to bring a little bit of joy, said Stefani. “The idea was to write a song that had a bit of a nostalgic feeling to it, so I think musically it reminds you of back in the day, going back to where I started musically which was with ska and reggae. I’m still the same me but here’s something a little bit new in case you feel like hearing a little bit more of me.”

Musically, “Let Me Reintroduce Myself” is a full-circle moment, with an instrumental that nods to her roots with the ska-punk band No Doubt. Bass-heavy beats and breezy acoustic guitars course under and around her laid-back vocals, as Stefani confidently asserts her space in the modern musical universe: “In case you forgot—no, I’m not records on your shelf.” The single also offers a sly callback: “I already gave you bananas,” she sings playfully, nodding to the cheerleader chant on her 2005 Pharrell Williams-produced No. 1 hit, “Hollaback Girl.”

“Let Me Reintroduce Myself” caps off a busy year for Stefani. She had two top 10 hits on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart with fiancé Blake Shelton, “Nobody But You” and “Happy Anywhere.” And her holiday album, You Make It Feel Like Christmas, was just reissued with two new songs, including Ryan Tedder co-write “Here This Christmas.”

A three-time GRAMMY® Award winner, Stefani, has achieved global success as, among other accomplishments, a performer, songwriter, frontwoman for ska-punk heroes No Doubt, and multi-platinum solo artist. To date, she’s sold more than 50 million units worldwide. Her 2015 solo album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. If 2020 is any indication, listeners should keep an eye out for more from Stefani soon.

Gwen Stefani – 15th Anniversary

After achieving global success as a performer, songwriter and frontwoman for No Doubt, Gwen Stefani released her first solo album – Love.Angel.Music.Baby. – on November 23, 2004. To celebrate the 15th anniversary of its release, the album has been remastered by five-time GRAMMY® nominee Chris Gehringer (Rihanna, Drake, Lady Gaga) of Sterling Sound. Interscope Records will release Love.Angel.Music.Baby. – 15th Anniversary Edition in digital format on November 22.

Stefani, a three-time GRAMMY® winner, will perform a medley of songs from Love.Angel.Music.Baby. on the Top 11 live results show of “The Voice” airing Tuesday, November 26 at 8pm ET/PT on NBC. She is now in her fourth season as a coach on the Emmy®-winning NBC series. Today, Stefani reissued two items from the original Love.Angel.Music.Baby merchandise collection – a hoodie and a t-shirt, both including a digital download of the remastered album. They are now available at www.shopus.gwenstefani.com

Hailed as “an irresistible party” by Rolling Stone and a “ferocious declaration of independence” by Q Magazine, Love.Angel.Music.Baby. is an exuberant reinvention of the music that influenced Stefani in her youth – a genre-spanning work that encompasses new wave, hip hop, electropop, soul and more. The album has sold more than 15 million units worldwide to date. It is certified Platinum or greater in 10 countries, including 5x Platinum in the U.S. Love.Angel.Music.Baby. was nominated for two GRAMMY Awards®– Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album – and the first three singles also received GRAMMY® nods.

Stefani addresses her decision to record a solo album on the lead-off track and first single, “What You Waiting For?,” which she wrote with Linda Perry. Produced by Nelle Hooper, the song topped Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart and spent 20 weeks on the Hot 100. “Rich Girl” featuring Eve and produced by Dr. Dre followed. It marked Stefani’s first top 10 entry on the Hot 100 and claimed the No. 1 spot on the UK Official R&B Singles chart.

In six short weeks, The Neptunes-produced “Hollaback Girl” ascended to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, where it spent four consecutive weeks, giving Stefani her first No. 1 single on the chart. “Hollaback Girl” was the first song in history to reach one million digital downloads and topped Billboard’s year end Hot Digital Songs tally in 2005. Views of the accompanying video, directed by Paul Hunter, are nearing 200 million. Driven by the success of “Hollaback Girl,” Love.Angel.Music.Baby. climbed to No. 5 on the Billboard 200 in June 2005. The album spent 78 weeks in total on the tally. Other singles included Cool,” “Luxurious” and “Crash.”

Her follow-up album, 2006’s The Sweet Escape, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and contained the Hot 100 top 10 smash “Wind It Up.” This Is What The Truth Feels Like, Stefani’s third solo effort, entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1 in 2016 and includes her powerful No. 1 single “Used To Love You.” You Make It Feel Like Christmas, her first holiday collection, was released in 2017. To date, she has sold more than 50 million units worldwide.

Stefani will perform at “Christmas at Rockefeller Center” on December 4, airing live on NBC. She will conclude her two-year Las Vegas headlining residency “Gwen Stefani – Just A Girl” at Zappos Theatre at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in May 2020. Tickets are available HERE.

Julia Michaels Announces Second Tour Leg

JULIA MICHAELS ANNOUNCES SECOND LEG OF THE INNER MONOLOGUE TOUR

DATES KICK OFF OCTOBER 16 IN TEMPE, AZ AND RUN THOUGH NOVEMBER 2019

CURRENTLY ON THE BEAUTIFUL TRAUMA WORLD TOUR WITH P!NK THROUGH MAY 2019

Listen to Inner Monologue Part I HERE

On the heels of multiple sold out shows, GRAMMY® Award-nominated multi platinum singer and songwriter JULIA MICHAELS will extend her first-ever headline show—THE INNER MONOLOGUE TOUR—with a month of dates this fall. Given the widespread fan demand, she will once again canvas North America with headline gigs coast-to-coast. The next leg kicks off October 16 in Tempe, AZ at the Marquee Theatre and concludes November 16 at Vogue Theatre in Vancouver, BC. Tickets go on-sale this Friday!

Get them HERE.

In March, THE INNER MONOLOGUE TOUR showcased her power as a live performer and solidified her as an impressive concert draw. She sold out venues in Chicago, Seattle, San Diego, Boulder, and Tulsa, to name a few. MICHAELS is also currently supporting P!NK on the U.S. installment of The Beautiful Trauma World Tour.

On a nightly basis, she’s bringing her debut, INNER MONOLOGUE PART I, to life on stage—and bringing fans closer than ever.

GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer and songwriter Julia Michaels has transformed the pop music landscape not only from behind-the-scenes as one of the most in-demand songwriters, but in the spotlight as a solo artist as well. Her rapid rise can be attributed to identifiable honesty in every lyric, as exemplified in her triple-platinum selling debut single “Issues”.  In 2018, she garnered GRAMMY® Awards nominations in the categories of “Best New Artist” and “Song of the Year” for “Issues,” which amassed nearly 2 billion streams worldwide. Continuing that success, “Issues” notably became “the top-selling debut single by an artist in 2017,” and placed as the only solo female composition on Variety’s “30 Most Consumed Songs of 2017.”

As a songwriter, MICHAELS has co-written 21 titles that have charted on the Billboard Hot 100, eleven of which have hit the Top 40, including “Issues.”  Those songwriting credits include smashes like Justin Bieber’s “Sorry,” Selena Gomez’s “Good for You” [feat. A$AP Rocky] & “Hands To Myself,” and Hailee Steinfeld’s “Love Myself.”  She’s also written titles for Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani, Linkin Park, Ed Sheeran, John Legend, P!NK, Maroon 5, Jessie Ware, Janelle Monae, Keith Urban, Shawn Mendes and more.

Since her debut as a solo artist, MICHAELS has built an enviable touring resume, joining artists like Maroon 5, Keith Urban, Shawn Mendes, Niall Horan, and P!NK- who she is currently touring the U.S. with through May 2019, around the globe.

MICHAELS most recently surprised fans with the release of INNER MONOLOGUE PART I.  Upon arrival, the EP debuted at #1 on the iTunes Pop Albums Chart and #5 Overall iTunes Albums Chart. The success of the EP prompted MICHAELS first-ever headline tour, “The Inner Monologue Tour,” which has sold out dates across the country.

Gwen Stefani’s Cool gets a synth cover by Strath

STRATH COVERS GWEN STEFANI’S COOL

Most use the California poppies for pretty instagrams.

Fewer use them to film music videos.

Strath falls into the latter.

The 24-year-old Australian artist took full advantage of the super bloom in his debut music video for his latest release “Cool”. The track is a cover of the 2004 Gwen Stefani smash hit. 15 years later, Strath adds new color to the track’s pop virtues, letting his listeners stew in a sea of sweeping 80s synthesizers that smell a lot like Tame Impala.

A real highlight is the brief musical interlude in the song’s middle, where a new guitar/synth melody soars over the tight groove of spank-y drums and walking bass line. A credit to his talents as a producer, the way Strath balances many unique elements in the mix ensure that this track is a real head-bopper.

The nostalgic, slightly haunting feel of the song’s outro leaves it feeling more sombre than the original. But the playful tone of the music video — where Strath sings next to a couple that must have been making out for several hours during production — perhaps suggests otherwise.

Strath affirms in the YouTube video’s description that the video was shot with “care” in the poppy fields. Whilst we hope that was the case, we can confirm with confidence that this track is a real banger.

ABOUT STRATH

Strath spent his first 18 years in Melbourne, Australia, writing songs during the day while playing in different jazz and rock bands at night. He moved halfway across the world to go to Harvard, where he spent the next 4 years making movies and even more tracks. After graduation, he relocated to LA, where he’s released a number of singles including “Loops,” “I Know You Too Well” and a cover of the 2004 Gwen Stefani smash hit, “Cool.” He plans on releasing lots of new music in 2019.

Jess Kent Releases Two Singles

July 13th, 2018 (Hollywood, CA) Rising singer and songwriter Jess Kent releases two new singles ‘Bass Bumps’ and ‘No Love Songs’ today as a two-song bundle via Capitol Records and all digital partners. Download/stream both tracks HERE.

Taken together, the two tracks show different dimensions of the England-born, Australia-raised Kent’s impressive lyrical and melodic artistry, with ‘Bass Bumps’ representing her playful, spirited side and ‘No Love Songs’ (featuring Wes Period) tapping into her chilled-out, down-tempo vibe. Kent co-wrote and collaborated on both tracks with Justin Tranter(Gwen StefaniSelena Gomez, Years & Years) with whom she has been in the studio working on her debut album.

“Bass Bumps is an homage to Sydney and the raves where me and my friends used to party,” says Kent. “In the period of time when I was cutting my teeth as a writer and producer, the electronic scene there was vibrant, eclectic, exciting and full of fresh talent. I’m so grateful for that time.” No Love Songs’ came about because I’d been very deliberate in having a broad and bold approach to what I was writing about on the record. Part of that was making sure I was being completely honest about what I wanted to write about. This particular day, I actually felt like writing a love song! So I thought, I won’t be snob- why not?!”

‘Bass Bumps’and ‘No Love Songs’ are Kents’ first new songs since 2016, which saw the release of her debut EP My Name is Jess Kent. The EP features her breakout hit, the reggae-infused alt-dance-pop track ‘Get Down,’ which has racked up more than three million Spotify plays, as well as second single’The Sweet Spot.’

Kent is a self-taught songwriter with a natural skill for crafting boldly nuanced electronic pop music. Born in Derby, England, was raised in Australia and got her start in music thanks largely to her dad, a blues-rock guitarist. She has played guitar since age seven, spent her childhood busking with her brother, and grew up with a love for bands like Blondie and the Clash. Now 24, Kent has mastered a potent rap influenced, melodic delivery that pairs her brash energy and rapid-fire flow with lyrics both defiant and vulnerable. She has toured with ColdplayTroye Sivan, Daya, Nick Jonas and Years & Years.

Kailee Morgue US Tour With Poppy

Today Kailee Morgue announces she will be heading on a U.S. fall tour with Poppy for her Am I A Girl? Tour. Artist pre-sale tickets go on sale Wednesday, July 11th at 10am local timeand general on-sale begins Friday, July 13th at 10am local time at www.kaileemorgue.com.

Having just sold out her debut headline shows in New York and Los Angeles, Morgue jumps to theaters by joining Poppy’s fall twenty-date run through North America, including top cities Los Angeles (The Wiltern on October 31st), New York (Irving Plaza on November 20th) and Washington D.C. (9:30 Club on November 24th).

Recently Morgue released “Do You Feel This Way (Feat. Whethan). Check out the track here!

Of the song, Morgue says, “This is one of my favorite songs I’ve made because it is off axis just enough to blur my perspective between haunting and inviting. Teaming up with Whethan brought the perfect blend of hazy lethargy and upbeat skepticism to the track. It captures the unease of that feeling of not knowing how someone truly feels about you, and it still always makes me want to move when I hear it—it’s so fun to perform.”

“Do You Feel This Way” (feat. Whethan) follows Morgue’s single “F**k U”and her 2017 breakout track, “Medusa,” which catapulted her into an overnight success after she posted a live performance of the song on Twitter. “Medusa” became the title track from her debut EP, which was also released last fall and features her hit single, “Discovery.”

Tattooed, multi-color haired and anime-obsessed 19-year-old Phoenix-based gothic pop siren, Kailee Morgue, casts a sonic spell with her music. A self-described “introvert” and the second oldest of six kids, she found solace in the sounds of fellow sonic sorceresses, such as Stevie Nicks and Gwen Stefani, as well as bands like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and more. By the age of ten, she picked up her first guitar, began quietly penning music and eventually started posting tracks on Soundcloud.

Between a gig at Jack In The Box in 2016, an 18-year-old Morgue found the beat for her breakout track, “Medusa,” on YouTube and cooked up the single. She first teased the track with a brief Twitter video, and it ignited a viral reaction garnering 100,000 “likes” overnight. Over an airy, minimalistic soundscape, Morgue creates a hypnotic and heartfelt melody with haunting and powerful lyrics. “Medusa” peaked at #1 on Hype Machine, was hailed as “Best Track of the Week” by The New York Times, MTV, The Line of Best Fit and Coup de Main and its video premiered on The FADER. As “Medusa” became an underground phenomenon, Morgue inked a deal with Republic Records in the summer of 2017. Further music is set for release this summer.

Morgue is set to perform her first-ever headlining show in New York at Baby’s All Right on May 17th—tickets are available now here.

“F**k U” follows Morgue’s breakout track, “Medusa,” which catapulted her into an overnight success last year after she posted a live performance of the song on Twitter. “Medusa” became the title track from her debut EP, which was also released last fall and features her hit single, “Discovery.”
