U2 ACHTUNG BABY 30TH ANNIVERSARY

U2 Releases Achtung Baby 30th Anniversary Vinyl + Digital Box Set

“[Achtung Baby]… U2’s daring descent into darkness” – Robert Hilburn, LA Times

360 readers should check out both the vinyl release and the never-before seen tracks from the new 50-track digital box set that was released on December 3, 2021!

Island Records, Interscope, and UMe announced the 30th Anniversary Edition release of U2’s seminal album Achtung Baby, which will see a special Standard and Deluxe vinyl release on November 19, ahead of a 50-track digital boxset available December 3, 2021. 

Thirty years ago, Bono described Achtung Baby as “the sound of four men chopping down The Joshua Tree” while Jon Pareles of the New York Times wrote that “stripped-down and defying its old formulas, U2 has given itself a fighting chance for the 1990’s”. The album won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance and became one of the most significant records of the nineties and of U2’s career.

Recorded over six months at Hansa Studio in Berlin and Windmill Lane in Dublin, Achtung Baby is U2’s seventh studio album. Produced by long-time U2 collaborators Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno with Steve Lillywhite, Achtung Baby was engineered by Flood and released on November 18, 1991. Lead by The Fly, four other singles followed: Mysterious Ways, One, Even Better Than The Real Thing, and Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses. Watch HERE.  

The bonnet of the Trabant will be auctioned at Phillips, London, on December 9, as part of their New Now sale, with proceeds going to the Berlin Institute for Sound and Music. 

Achtung Baby (30th Anniversary Edition) is available on Standard black vinyl and Deluxe color vinyl on November 19, with Achtung Baby (2018 Remaster) and Achtung Baby (Unter Remixes) also available digitally that day. A 50-track digital boxset – to include Uber Remixes, Unter Remixes, B-Sides with 22 tracks never-before available digitally – will be released on December 3, 2021.  

U2 X-Radio, the band’s SiriusXM channel, will this month present an Achtung Baby special to include interviews with band members and album collaboration Daniel Lanois, Flood, and Anton Corbijn.

aldn × midwxst – Go Away

Reston, VA artist aldn has been consistently rolling out incredible visuals from his debut EP, predictable (released November 17). The music video for “Go Away” is released. The collaborative track with fellow hyperpop artist midwxst is sullen and captures the emotions and feelings around a deceptive love and relationships that drag on beyond its expiry date. Directed by John Peterson, the video is shot in the streets of New York and features the real-life best friends in reverse. Watch the video above or via link HERE

midwxst and I shot the video the same day as the Overcast N Friends show, had a fun time running and gunning different shots basically planning the video out as we went. So happy with how it turned out,” said aldn.

Fans will be able to catch “Go Away” live as aldn joins Glaive’s upcoming national tour that will kick off in February alongside midwxst. 

About aldn

Twenty-year-old aldn has been prolific in the hyperpop community for his production skills, but it wasn’t until he started laying his own vocals to the self-produced beats that it took off for the Reston, VA artist. aldn’s music turns pop songwriting on its head and finds a way to get stuck with the listener for hours on end. With its glitchy production and saccharine like melodies, aldn’s dark world is inverted through his music. While growing up in the urban jungle of Reston, he was exposed to the work of The Smiths, Radiohead, Skrillex, and deadmau5 through his brother and father. At the age of 11, he taught himself how to use an Ableton launchpad and imitate lo-fi beats. From there, he began making lo-fi and rap beats and releasing them on Soundcloud while quarantining with friends at Virginia Commonwealth University. As the whole world transitioned to a virtual existence, he turned to Discord for a sense of community which is where his breakout hit “glittr” gained massive traction—the remastered version now racks up over three million plays on Spotify. In 2021, he dropped the greenhouse EP which saw collaborations with glaive (“what was the last thing u said”), midwxst (“happy ever after”) and renforshort (“dog eat dog”). Finding inspiration in filmmaker Gaspar Noé to shapeshifting artists like Crystal Castles, Yung Lean, and Bladee, aldn’s upcoming debut EP switches gears in favor of being even more experimental in a lane of his own.

NO1-NOAH RELEASES NEW SONG

NO1-NOAH EXPRESSES HIS GRATITUDE WITH MELODIC BANGER “THANK GOD”

New EP ‘You Should Come Over’ Coming Soon

Singer/Songwriter NO1-NOAH (Ghetto Earth Records/Interscope Records) isn’t ready to close the doors shut on his 2021. Today, the R&B polymath bounces back with his melodic banger, “Thank God.” Director Patricio Mosquera delivers an anime thriller for NOAH’s visualizer, where an all-out melee occurs. Though NOAH escapes unscathed from the battle, all doesn’t end well for the rising star. As for the song itself, it finds a confident NOAH stiff-arming detractors with his bruising wordplay and buttery delivery.

Watch the creative visualizer HERE.

Last January, the promising songwriter was named one of Billboard’s 15 Hip-Hop & R&B Artists to Watch. Touted for his “ethereal vocals and intrepid lyricism,” NOAH first caused shockwaves in the R&B world when he appeared on Summer Walker’s 2020 standout EP Life on Earth. NOAH’s indelible prints landed on the singer’s stellar cuts “SWV” and “White Tee,” where he served as her guest feature. 

After displaying beams of promise on Walker’s sizzling anthems, NO1 inked a deal with her label Ghetto Earth Records last winter. Serving as her first artist, NOAH looks to rattle the cages of R&B with his emo-leaning tracks and sticky hooks. Since announcing his deal, his opening record, “Ridin For My Love,” flaunted his pillowy vocals and gutsy lyrics. NOAH is also coming off the release of his hypnotic record “Bounce.” The seductive earworm showcased NOAH’s supreme ability to get any woman he desired.

With publications such as Rolling Stone and XXL already praising NOAH for his extraordinary talents, it’s only a matter of time before he morphs into a full-fledged star.

About HVN

Houston, TX rapper HVN’s story revolves around persistence. The multi-faceted creative started his burgeoning career with a clothing brand at 15 years old spurred on by a six-month recovery period in hospital after suffering a stroke due to his sickle cell disease. HVN couldn’t walk, talk, eat, or go to the bathroom himself, and was stuck in a hospital bed where he planned up the ‘Don’t Die’ brand. In the years to come, ‘Don’t Die’ grew from a clothing label into a catalyst for the music and fashion scenes in Houston, hosting parties and live performances for independent artists who couldn’t find venues to perform their music. 

In late 2019, HVN decided to make a project of his own after years of being in the studio with friends, freestyling for fun and watching them create. These early sessions eventually formed his 2020 debut project, Welcome to HVN. The 7-song album—led by standout cut, “Backhand”—made an immediate impact. The response pushed HVN to take music more seriously and was followed up by the November 2020 single “Demon,” featuring a Trey Lyons directed music video with a cameo from Taco Bennett. He is now signed to Field Trip Recordings/Interscope Records.

ALLISON PONTHIER – LATE BLOOMER

ALLISON PONTHIER’S NEW SINGLE, “LATE BLOOMER,” IS OUT TODAY

WATCH THE VISUALIZER HERE 

Fresh off a tour with Lord Huron, a festival performance at Austin City Limits, and the release of her debut EP, Faking My Own Death (Interscope Records), Allison Ponthier returns with a simmering, swampy anthem for those who need a little time to come to terms with their sexuality. While her debut single, “Cowboy,” dealt with the difficulties of coming out, “Late Bloomer” portrays the process as a joyful one. Listen HERE.

“‘Late Bloomer’ is about how much fun coming out is. A lot of people describe it as going through a second puberty. You learn a lot about yourself,” explains Allison Ponthier. “That’s why when people come out, they often change how they look aesthetically. They try new things and make new friends. ‘Late Bloomer’ is really about celebrating that. It’s about the reward you get for finally being brave enough to be yourself. There’s no rush. There will always be people there who are ready for you whenever you’re ready.”

The 25-year-old Texas-born, Brooklyn-based artist wrote “Late Bloomer” with Ethan Gruska (Phoebe Bridgers, Trombone Shorty) and Dan Wilson (Adele, Leon Bridges), who also produced the song. The accompanying visualizer, which takes its inspiration from Little Shop of Horrors and “as-seen-on-TV” marketing, introduces a Muppet-like “late bloomer” plant, skilled at skateboarding, karaoke, tattoo art and more. View HERE.

“It’s basically just about being a bad boy, which I always wish I was,” she confesses.

Ponthier and Lord Huron are featured in the first video installment of Consequence of Sound’s new series, “Two for the Road,” which features conversations with artists who are touring together. View HERE. Check out their recent collaboration, “I Lied,” HERETipping Ponthier as one of the “Artists Guaranteed to Turn Heads at ACL Fest,” The Austin Chronicle said, “The touches of pop linger in a swaying haze that cabarets her country-leaning melodies, resulting in the kind of surreal Western pop that swells the sense of dislocation and uncertainty while beckoning warmly to follow.”

Growing up as a wide-eyed misfit in the Lone Star State, Ponthier dreamed of running away to New York City. When she made the move to Brooklyn at age 20, she felt out-of-place in a new way – like a goody-two-shoes Southerner in the epicenter of East Coast hipsterdom. The corresponding internal journey has inspired the string of reflective, idiosyncratic yet relatable songs found on Faking My Own Death, hailed as “stellar” by NME.
