ALESSO – SOMEBODY TO USE

Today marks the premiere of “Somebody To Use,” the exhilarating new single from GRAMMY-nominated producer/dance artist Alesso. “Somebody To Use” comes with a toxic mix ready for the clubs too. Watch the new video HERE.

In a glorious moment of worlds colliding, “Somebody To Use” once again proves Alesso’s incredible talent for merging the massively catchy melodies and raw emotion of pop with the forward-thinking sound design of boundary-pushing dance music. Built on a heavenly backdrop of glistening synth and gorgeously cascading beats, the track surges forward with an unstoppable energy paired with velvety vocals. The result: a full-tilt anthem that invites both total surrender and pure catharsis. Already familiar to fans, Alesso has teased and performed the highly anticipated “Somebody to Use” on his sets for the past two years.

“Somebody To Use” arrives as the follow-up to “Chasing Stars,” Alesso’s collaboration with Marshmello, featuring GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter/guitarist James Bay. Soon after premiering in August alongside a beautifully surreal video directed by Jake Jelicich (Dua Lipa, Niall Horan), “Chasing Stars” shot to #10 on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart, ultimately spending 11 weeks there. The original track was followed by a VIP mix from Alesso (available HERE) and the breathtakingly intimate ”Chasing Stars (Stripped) [feat. James Bay]” (listen HERE).

Aside from “Chasing Stars” Alesso takes part in the Blade Runner: Black Lotus Soundtrack with Danna Paola on “Rescue Me“ and recently partnered with OneOf – the green NFT platform built for the music community – to release his debut NFT collection “Cosmic Genesis.”

ABOUT ALESSO

A global maverick in the dance world, Alesso has repeatedly proven that his influence transcends boundaries and crosses over into countless genres to that end, he’s collaborated with such eclectic artists as OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, Calvin Harris, Tove Lo, Liam Payne, Swedish House Mafia’s Sebastian Ingrosso, Hailee Steinfeld, Florida Georgia Line, Anitta, and more. With his past hits including the platinum-certified “If I Lose Myself“ and gold-certified “Under Control,” the Sweden native has also found major success with “Calling (Lose My Mind),” which topped the Billboard US Hot Dance Club Songs chart. On Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, his massive breakup anthem “Let Me Go” collaboration with Hailee Steinfeld and Florida Georgia Line reached No. 9, while “Is That Me” peaked at No. 25. In 2020, he released a pair of hit singles: “Midnight,” featuring former One Direction member Liam Payne, and “THE END“ with goth-pop singer/songwriter Charlotte Lawrence. To date, he’s performed at international festivals ranging from Tomorrowland to Ultra Music Festival to Electric Daisy Carnival, with his national TV experience including closing out GMA’s Summer Concert Series, performing on The Late Late Show with James Corden, and taking the stage at the AMAs.

Lola Young – Fake

Fresh off the release of her new EP After Midnight, rising star Lola Young returns with a brand new single, “FAKE,” out today via Capitol Records. She’ll make her U.S. television debut by performing the song on “The Late Late Show With James Corden” after being hand-picked by Corden himself. Tapping into a vibe that Janis Joplin might have come up with if she was a 20-year-old South Londoner living in 2021, “FAKE” fuses soaring vocals, shimmering guitars and stomp-along drums, playing out, as Young says, “like a scene from a Tarantino movie.” The song was produced by Paul Epworth (Paul McCartney, Beck, Adele). “FAKE,” which will have its UK radio premiere on BBC Radio 1 with Clara Amfo, is available for download/streaming HERE. Watch the visualizer HERE.

“FAKE” is a song about remembering the core of who you are,” explains Lola Young. “There is so much constantly being sold to us, so much that is trying to tell us who to be, whether it’s an advert or person on the street. How would we be if we ignored it all? When writing this song I was trying to drown out all the noise, it ‘s about remembering that everything other than what you personally believe isn ‘t the truth and to listen to your instinct about what ‘s fake. I hope whoever hears this relates and feels a sense of empowerment towards anything or anyone that has made them feel inadequate in their life.”

Young takes her place today as an Amazon Next Breakthrough Artist and will appear on the cover of their Breakthrough playlist worldwide. Following her UK tour with Dermot Kennedy and festival performances, she ‘ll launch a fall UK/EU headline tour. View itinerary HERE.

Her stripped-down After Midnight EP, released last month with an accompanying film that was directed by Dumas Haddad, tells the story of one night in Young ‘s life, tracing the hours between midnight and 5 a.m. She moves from feeling confident and in control to gradually becoming more vulnerable and, eventually, entering a manic state of mind, where Young leaves nothing on the table.

Billboard praised the “velvet-voiced Lola Young” and Clash Magazine hailed her music as “touching [and] honest.” The Honey Pop said, “With her sultry voice and such an explosion of talent, [Young ‘s] emotional loops hit us hard.” Hailed as “a star on the rise” by ELLE UK, the 20-year-old artist is fiercely independent and uncompromising. Her work to date the powerful singles “Ruin My Makeup” and “Woman,” her debut collection of tracks, Intro, and second release, the Renaissance EP received support across the board from the likes of Billboard, Atwood Magazine, Wonderland and British Vogue.

Rival Sons Announce Fall North American Tour

Rival Sons announce a fall headline tour to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of their landmark album, Pressure and Time.

GRAMMY-nominated group Rival Sons will return to the road in North America on the Pressure and Time Tour this fall. The six-week headline run will see the band celebrating the 10th anniversary of their 2011 album, Pressure and Time, by performing the landmark long player live in its entirety. The tour kicks off on September 29 at Culture Room in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and includes stops at legendary venues such as the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, the Riviera Theater in Chicago, The Warfield in San Francisco, The Wiltern in Los Angeles, and comes to a close on November 13 at House of Blues in Anaheim, CA. Most dates of the tour will feature support from Dorothy, with select dates supported by either Reignwolf or Myron Elkins. The official ticket pre-sale launches Wednesday, July 21.

For the first time, Rival Sons will perform their critically acclaimed and cult favorite second full-length album, Pressure & Time, from top to bottom. Upon its arrival in 2011, Pressure and Time garnered the band worldwide recognition and has since amassed over 40 million-plus streams and garnered widespread praise with the BBC affirming it is “simply stuffed with rollicking tunes.”

Last month, Rival Sons lit up Southern California with a two-night livestream event, Rival Sons “Pair of Aces: Live from the historic Catalina Casino on Santa Catalina Island.” They performed their debut LP, Before the Fire [2009], in its entirety on the first night and their self-titled EP, Rival Sons [2010], on the second.

Earlier this year, Rival Sons launched their very own label, Sacred Tongue Recordings, with distribution through Thirty Tigers. The band recently regained the master rights to several of their early releases and will reintroduce them to the world by first remastering their independent full-length debut LP, Before the Fire (2009), and self-titled EP Rival Sons (2010), on all DSPS, CD, and Vinyl – for the first time. They’ve printed up an exclusive run of 1000 copies of both Before the Fire and Rival Sons. Before the Fire will come in an orange splatter variant, while the EP is available in a clear with gold splatter variant. There will also be indie retailer exclusive colorways of each release in translucent orange and crystal clear, respectively. A repressing of Pressure and Time has not been announced but is expected in the coming months.

By looking back, Rival Sons also leap forward again as they continue working on more music and the follow-up to 2019’s Feral Roots, which not only garnered a 2020 GRAMMY Award nomination for Best Rock Album but also yielded a GRAMMY nomination for Best Rock Performance for the top 10 rock track, Too Bad, and features the #1 rock radio single, Do Your Worst. Produced by multi GRAMMY Award-winner Dave Cobb at Nashville’s famed RCA Studio A, and the equally legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals, AL, Rival Sons’ Feral Roots is available now on all streaming platforms.

ED SHEERAN – BAD HABITS

GLOBAL SUPERSTAR ED SHEERAN RETURNS WITH NEW SINGLE BAD HABITS ALONGSIDE CINEMATIC DAVE MEYERS-DIRECTED OFFICIAL VIDEO

ACCLAIMED SINGER/SONGWRITER SET FOR WEEK-LONG RESIDENCY ON THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH JAMES CORDEN BEGINNING THIS MONDAY, JUNE 28

Global superstar Ed Sheeran officially returns with his new single Bad Habitsalongside the Dave Meyers-directed official video.

Spending the last few years out of the spotlight following his record-breaking two-year Divide tour and the arrival of his first daughter, Ed Sheeran marks his official return with the euphoric, song-of-summer contender, Bad Habits. Sheeran is an artist who motors on nonconformity, with Bad Habits; landing as something unexpected yet wholly his; a testament to a forward-thinking artist who continues to push his art into new dimensions. Deploying an up-tempo, guitar-laced summer anthem, Bad Habits is a song that channels escapist energy and most importantly makes you want to dance. Ed co-wrote and co-produced Bad Habits with long-time collaborators, Johnny McDaid (Shape of You) and FRED (No.6 Collaborations Project).

In the accompanying official video – directed by Dave Meyers (Billie Eilish, Kendrick Lamar) – we see Ed as we’ve never seen him before as he depicts an alter-ego vampire character. Trading his distinct ginger hair for bleached white and his teeth for fangs, the dark-humor narrative serves as a metaphor for “bad habits” as Ed embarks on a wild night out alongside his crew of ghouls, before morphing back to his real self the next morning, ginger hair intact, as the sun rises over him. The official video made its global broadcast premiere on MTV Live/MTVU/MTV’s global network of channels today, as was also trailed on ViacomCBS Times Square billboard.

Ed Sheeran says, “Feels great to be back with my new single. I wanted the video for Bad Habits to play on the nature of habits in a fantastical way, so I decided on vampires. It was mega fun getting into character except for the heights (that wasn’t so fun). Enjoy x

To celebrate the release of Bad Habits, Ed will be performing live today from Ipswich Town’s Portman Road, his home team’s football stadium in Suffolk, England – for TikTok’s UEFA Euro 2020 show, streaming globally on TikTok starting at 4pm EST today. Directed by long-time collaborator, Emil Nava, today’s performance will see Sheeran performing Bad Habits live, for the first time ever, as well as fan favorites.

Adding to all this excitement, Sheeran is set for a week-long residency on The Late Late Show with James Corden, starting this Monday, June 28th (check local listings). During his residency, Sheeran will not only perform some of his biggest hits, live in-studio, each night, kicking off with the television debut of Bad Habits, but will also sit down for a chat with Corden and feature in the show’s comedy segments throughout the week.

Furthermore, Sheeran will deliver an all-new, live performance for the 2021 iHeartRadio KIIS FM Wango Tango, hosted by Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday, June 30 at 7pm PT/10pm ET. The virtual event will stream exclusively on LiveXLive.com and broadcast on more than 95 iHeartRadio stations across the country.

Bad Habits marks Sheeran’s first official release since 2019’s Platinum-certified, GRAMMY-nominated No.6 Collaborations Project, which includes the multi-platinum, chart-topping hits I Don’t Care (with Justin Bieber) and Beautiful People (feat. Khalid), and features guest appearances from 22 of his favorite artists including Travis Scott, Eminem, Bruno Mars, Cardi B and Camila Cabello, just to name a few.

Ed Sheeran is currently recording his new album.

Hailed as a “musical polyglot” by the Los Angeles Times, Masego is a singular talent and surprising presence: a saxophone player, a singer, a rapper, a comedian, a DJ. NPR Music praised him as “musical shapeshifter, the creator of a blueprint for a new kind of sound.” Lady Lady, Masego’s 2018 debut album, put him on the map. “Tadow,” the lead single, has surpassed a billion global streams and been certified Platinum by the RIAA. Since the album’s release, Masego has toured the world, headlining sold-out tours and starring on festival stages across every continent but Antarctica. He recently contributed a new song, “Somethin’ Ain’t Right” (feat. JID and Rapsody), to Judas and the Black Messiah: The Inspired Album.

Sam Fischer Announces US & UK Tour

Sam Fischer announces his international Fall 2021 tour, A Simple Tour.

Sam Fischer – the man behind last year’s platinum hit This City, duets with Demi Lovato on What Other People Say, and Sam Feldt’s Pick Me Up, has announced a string of US and UK tour dates this Autumn.

Sam says, “It’s been a unique journey this past 18 months, having my songs travel further around the world than I’ve been able to and not getting to meet the people who have given me this life I now lead has been a bit heartbreaking, so to be announcing a tour feels surreal, but here we are. The support I’ve had in both the UK & US  has been incredible and I can’t wait to be on stages, doing what I love the most & finally meeting everyone, for the first time.”

Sam’s debut single This City is currently sitting on over 500 million worldwide streams and was Top 20 in the UK for 11 weeks. The track has gone double platinum in Australia, platinum in the UK and Gold in the US, New Zealand, and Switzerland. He’s also had some incredible US TV performances on Ellen, Jimmy Kimmel, and The Late Late Show With James Corden.

Australian-born Sam Fischer  first introduced himself with his Not A Hobby EP and has garnered incredible attention through his soulful voice and heartfelt lyrics. Touring North America with his friend Lewis Capaldi, he wowed crowds with his buoyant personality and pure love and talent for songwriting. Now based in LA, he not only has received acclaim for his own work, but he continues to solidify his spot as one of the hottest current writers, having worked with global pop superstars including Ciara, Lennon Stella,  Louis Tomlinson, Elle King, Jessie J, Virginia To Vegas and many more.

However, it hasn’t all been plain sailing for Sam, who endured his own heartache to achieve his dreams. With the promise of a recording contract in the bag, he set off to LA only for the deal to be pulled away. After months of couch-surfing, he finally and deservedly received his break with This City  and  album Homework which has been just the amazing start of an exciting new chapter in Sam’s career.

His relatable lyrics and unique, resonant sound are a staple of his work from his debut song, Lean, to his newest release, Simple. Sam’s impressive skill will be on full display this fall in A Simple Tour.

NOTHING BUT THIEVES – FUTUREPROOF

RELEASE NEW SINGLE & VIDEO

THIRD ALBUM ‘MORAL PANIC’ OUT NOW

AUTUMN 2021 UK, IRELAND AND EUROPEAN TOUR ON SALE NOW

“Political turmoil, climate change, and the toxicity of the internet all pour into Nothing But Thieves record Moral Panic.” TLOBF

The band achieve another phenomenal album” Clash

“This is the sound of a band who understand their audience but also delight in taking risks” Gigwise

“A living, breathing, and characteristically anthemic, beast of an album” Music OMH

LISTEN/EMBED HERE.

Following the release of their #3 acclaimed third album Moral Panic last year, Southend five-piece Nothing But Thieves have released their dark and explorative new single and video Futureproof via Sony Music UK/RCA Records, which was premiered on BBC Radio 1 last night as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World.

Nothing But Thieves are a band that continue to evolve their sound, and new single Futureproof sees them experiment further whilst remaining authentically them. Produced by Richard Costey (Biffy Clyro, Foo Fighters, Muse) and recorded between London’s RAK Studios and guitarist/keyboardist Dom’s home studio, it is a sinister, dynamic and unpredictable track that examines the meaning of self-preservation through powerful lyrics. The video, directed by Jake Jelicich, sees the band bathed in an auburn glow giving an intense performance that is filmed chaotically, matching the energy and uneasiness of the song. The band say;

“’Futureproof’ is about self-preservation; what that means to different people and the lengths that those people would go to achieve it. 

It’s designed to be a guitar rock and hip-hop hybrid. That can be a bit of an eye roller and it’s easy to get wrong, but there’s a parallel between some of our heavier songs and the more aggressive side of hip-hop, which we wanted to try and get at. It’s dark and chromatic and then it’s mixed like a hip-hop track with loud drums and vocals. The idea was to try and explore that territory in the most authentic and fresh way.”

Futureproof follows the singles Is Everybody Going Crazy?, Real Love Song and Impossible released last year from their third album Moral Panic, which achieved over 102 million streams and saw support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, Virgin Radio and Radio X alongside winning Best Indie Act at Global Radio’s 2021 Awards. The album was a poignant moral outcry on the world tinged with emotion, anger and hope, which thematically touched on climate change, anxiety around social media, political chaos and an overall desire to switch off. Moral Panic followed their 2018 EP What Did You Think When You Made Me This Way, their 2017 acclaimed album Broken Machine, which charted at #2 in the UK album chart, and their debut self-titled album Nothing But Thieves.

The past few years have been quite a ride for Nothing But Thieves. Amassing over 1 million worldwide album sales and over 907 million worldwide streams, they have built up a loyal and wide following for their impactful alt rock sound, cementing themselves as one of the best current rock bands in the world. Selling 150,000 tickets on their last album campaign, which included a sold-out show at London’s Alexandra Palace and selling out their entire worldwide Broken Machine headline tour, their success has been global.

The band have performed on US TV shows, such as James Corden and Jimmy Kimmel, after their debut became the bestselling debut from a UK rock band in the US in 2015 and played packed out international shows from Poland to Amsterdam, where they headlined an arena to 6,000 fans. After intimately debuting new songs early last year for a BRITs/War Child gig, they were set to tour internationally last Spring, including a show to 6,500 people at Moscow Adrenaline Stadium.

Following 3 livestream performances Live from the Warehouse last year to launch Moral Panic, they are finally bringing songs from the album to live audiences this Autumn with a UK, Ireland and European tour, including their biggest ever headline London show at O2 Arena. With a well-earned reputation for their energetic, impassioned and infinite live shows, it’s a tour not to be missed. Full dates are as follows:

Darren Criss x I Can’t Dance

Today, singer and songwriter Darren Criss releases his newest single, “I Can’t Dance,” via BMG.

This is the second in a series of new songs which Darren described as “character-driven singles.” He announced the track on Instagram earlier this week, writing, “Half masc, half fem, half bad bitch, half brazen baller. This song is an ode to both those we love to hate and those we hate to love. What can I say, I live for dualities.”

“I Can’t Dance” arrives on the heels of “f*kn around,” which Billboard described as “a slick alt-pop single built around a wiggly bass line.”  MTV News praised, “With synthy distortions and a banging guitar loop, the song echoes the sharper edges of contemporaries like Shawn Mendes and Justin Timberlake’s with a theatrical flair fans have come to expect from Criss.” Darren made his late-night television performance debut with the single on The Late Late Show with James Corden alongside Este Haim of HAIM on bass, The Pocket Queen on drums, frequent collaborator and San Fermin frontwoman Charlene Kaye on guitar, and the track’s co-writer CJ Baran on keys.

Music has always played an integral role in Darren’s artistry. As a solo artist, his 2017 EP Homework debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Album chart. Criss has toured to sold-out audiences around the world including headlining the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Festival with multi-GRAMMY Award nominee and renowned DJ Steve Aoki. In 2019, he also headlined the Balmain Music Festival for the Balmain men’s spring 2020 show.

The Fratellis × Rudimental – Need a Little Love Remix

PLATINUM RECORDING TRIO THE FRATELLIS PARTNER WITH RUDIMENTAL FOR REIMAGINED VERSION OF NEED A LITTLE LOVE – AVAILABLE NOW, LISTEN HERE, THE BAND’S SIXTH STUDIO ALBUM HALF DRUNK UNDER A FULL MOON IS AVAILABLE NOW ON COOKING VINYL 

Half Drunk Under a Full Moon creates a dreamlike feel for listeners, retaining catchy, folky aspects while gracing listeners with swaying melodies and playful drumming. – RIFF Magazine  

Fresh off the heels of their sixth studio album, Half Drunk Under A Full Moon,  Platinum recording trio The Fratellis partnered with Mercury Prize winning electronic act, Rudimental, on a reimagined version of their single Need a Little Love.  The track is available on all DSPs now via Cooking Vinyl, listen here.  Watch the video here, and a behind-the-scenes documentary about the Rudimental/Fratellis collaboration here.

Says Rudimental’s Amir Amor, Experiment. That’s one of the defining factors I’ve learned — you can get something from the most unlikely places.  Adds bandmate Kesi Dyden, When we heard the original version of The Fratellis’ track we were remixing, we were like, wow. It’s a great song, but it’s so different from what we make, and our sound. It’s quite exciting for us to step out of our comfort zone.

Says Jon Fratelli, We had a lot of fun collaborating with Rudimental on this remix. It’s not something we’ve really ever done before, so we are pleased with how well it turned out.

The Fratellis performed Need A Little Love on The Late Late Show with James Corden and The Kelly Clarkson Show, as well as on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show on Virgin Radio, where they also performed a live version of Baccara’s 70s classic Yes Sir, I Can Boogie, which has become a viral hit reaching 200k views on YouTube. The band will release a studio version of the song to coincide with Scotland’s appearance in the delayed Euro 2020 football tournament. 

Reminiscent of the Beach Boys, Motown, the Waterboys, and the Bugsy Malone soundtrack, the increasingly ambitious Fratellis shoot for the moon and reach for the stars – and they succeed. – Yahoo! Entertainment
