WATCH INTERVIEW  HERE

Yesterday, Glass Animals unveiled a stunning performance of their Platinum-Certified global hit Heat Waves on Good Morning America—watch their performance HERE and interview HERE! The band’s signature high-energy performance was shot remotely at Brighton’s iconic British Airways i360 observation tower during sunrise. Frontman Dave Bayley also spoke more about the song and its meaning with Good Morning America Digital—watch HERE.

Glass Animals have had a career-defining year with Heat Waves and their 2020 album, Dreamland. Not only did Heat Waves recently peak in the Top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart over a year after its original release date, but the band also performed the song during their first-ever U.S. awards show performance at Billboard Music Awards, were selected as Billboard Music Awards finalists for Top Rock Song: Heat Waves and Top Rock Album: Dreamland, and performed the track on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Ellen, and more. 

Next month, Glass Animals will kick off their nearly sold-out North American Dreamland Tour, which sold over 135,000 tickets in the first 3 days of its on-sale. The run kicks off August 30th in Lewiston, NY and takes the band across North America well into 2022. The shows add to their already sold-out fall UK tour dates, previously announced 2022 Red Rocks shows, and confirmed festival performances at Bonnaroo, Life Is Beautiful, Firefly Festival, Outside Lands, and more.

Dreamland, the band’s hugely popular third full-length album, entered UK charts on its opening week at #2 (their highest ever scoring chart position, a massive 21 spots above their last album, Mercury Prize-nominated How To Be A Human Being) and charted inside the top 10 in the US (#7 on Billboard Top 200 Chart), Australia, New Zealand, and Ireland. The album clocked up 160 million streams in its first week of release. Over the past year, Heat Waves was crowned #1 on Triple J’s Hottest 100—an accolade not given to a UK band since 2009 with previous winners including Kendrick Lamar and Billie Eilish—receiving a sync placement on FIFA, then an organic Minecraft affiliation, whereby the YouTuber LoverFella (2.61M subscribers) rebuilt a Glass Animals fan’s base and surprised her with a meet and greet with the band who were waiting inside. Watch it HERE and the Extended BTS HERE. Earlier this year, Heat Waves peaked at #1 on the Alternative Radio Chart for 3 consecutive weeks and in the Top 15 on the Top 40 Radio Chart, a first for Glass Animals in their career. It also held the #1 spot on the ARIA Official Singles Chart in Australia for 6 consecutive weeks, marking the band’s first #1 single globally. Heat Waves has had over 800 million combined streams to date, peaked at over 2 million daily streams, and has received over 31 million views of the video on YouTube.

KEEP COOL × YOURS TRULY × ADIDAS ORIGINALS – SONGS FROM SCRATCH

In 2019, Keep Cool partnered with creative agency Yours Truly and adidas Originals to bring 80+ vocalists, instrumentalists, producers, songwriters, and the one and only Babyface to a historic mansion in Los Angeles to write, record and build together. After a full week of sessions and 120 songs recorded, Keep Cool/RCA Records is gearing up to release the compilation EP, Songs From Scratch: Volume 1, on June 24th.

“Glory” feat. Mez, VanJess, ICECOLDBISHOP, Ginette Claudette, Gwen Bunn is the first offering from the upcoming compilation EP. Listen here.

Songs From Scratch: Volume 1 is a continuation of the adidas Originals and Yours Truly’s long-running Songs from Scratch series that has produced songs from Chance the Rapper, Kelela, Brent Faiyaz, Kehlani, Ty Dolla $ign, Mura Masa, Danny Brown, and more.

Songs from Scratch curator, Will Abramson says: “Songs from Scratch Vol. 1, is a natural extension of our ambition to put artists into positions where they can make things that surprise them, and us. For 9 years we’ve curated smaller 1:1 pairings but we always wondered: what would happen if we put a whole bunch of artists and producers in one place, took really good care of them and let them run free? We’re grateful to Keep Cool and adidas Originals for helping make that dream a reality.”

Keep Cool co-founder and EVP of A&R at RCA Records, Tunji Balogun says: “We started Keep Cool with the goal of bringing people together in the name of creativity, inclusivity and great art. Partnering with adidas on Creator Camp was a magical opportunity to connect artists from all walks of life in an unfiltered, authentic environment that exemplified the power of music in creating bonds and bringing creatives together.”

The official camp documentary, produced by Yours Truly, is a kaleidoscopic vision of camp, featuring appearances from Babyface, Smino, Ant Clemons, Victoria Monet, Jozzy, Dijon, Umi, Ruel, D’Mile, Xavier Omär, and more. Watch here.

Sound MANA

In March of 2020, Sound MANA, a music residency is launching on the Pacific coast of Oaxaca, Mexico. Created by DJ/Producer and Ableton Certified Instructor Adam Partridge (artist name: Atropolis) and his partner En Wong, a multidisciplinary educator—Sound MANA offers artists working in music a one or two-week creative retreat to work on an EP, LP, album or sound and visual project. 

Each month, Sound MANA will host up to seven artists who are accepted to the program through an application process. Daily lectures, studio-hours, feedback sessions and workshops are hosted in a cliff-side palapa overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Artists in residency are also given the opportunity to experiment with field recording and live sampling using nature sounds captured from around Oaxaca. 

At the heart of this unique program is the artist’s need to connect. Sound MANA recognizes the healing power therein, of seeking silence and truth in nature, of removing oneself from materialism and urban society.

Many producers are confined to their workstations where they produce entire bodies of work within the clicking of a mouse. DJs, singers and musicians find themselves in search for more opportunities to diversify and create original content. Sound MANA offers the artist (emerging and professional) a platform to hone in on their creative practice and develop a unique point of view through a renewed connection to nature, culture, community, technology and self. Music producers, DJs, singers, songwriters, composers, instrumentalists and sound researchers are encouraged to apply at www.soundmana.com.
