H.E.R. Impresses with Live Performances

This past Saturday, H.E.R., the two-time Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter and musician, made her stellar debut on the iconic Saturday Night Live stage with captivating performances of “Damage” and “Hold On.”  The studio versions of both songs are currently available at all digital service providers.

The performances have garnered praise from fans and press alike, including NPR, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, UPROXX, The Atlantic and Rolling Stone who stated: “For ‘Damage,’ H.E.R. replicated the vibes of the track’s live music video released earlier this week, while the ballad ‘Hold On’ allowed the singer to show off her guitar chops…” H.E.R.’s SNL debut adds to a long impressive list of performances from the dynamic artist, including this year’s Emmy Awards with her beautiful rendition of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U,” and two consecutive performances on the Grammy Awards in 2019 and 2020.

Tomorrow night, October 27, H.E.R. returns to Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform “Damage,” followed by the virtual Xfinity Awesome Gig Powered by Pandora on October 29 at 9pm EDT. Fans can RSVP for the free event HERE.

With a brand new full-length album on the horizon, H.E.R. recently became the second artist to score four #1 hits within two years on the Billboard Adult R&B Songs chart with her latest feature on Lonr’s “Make the Most.” Previous #1 chart-toppers were “Focus” and her collaborations with Skip Marley on “Slow Down” and Daniel Caesar on “Best Part.” The first to achieve this feat was Toni Braxton, who H.E.R. recently collaborated with on Toni’s new single “Gotta Move On.”

Saint Motel – The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack: Part 2

Elektra recording group Saint Motel have released THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK: PART 2, the second installment of a three-part album, available now at all DSPs and streaming services HERE.

The five-song collection is highlighted by lead single Preach whose official music video is available to stream on the band’s YouTube channel. Part 2 also features the previously released track, A Good Song Never Dies which debuted in PlayStation’s MLB The Show 20. Keep on the lookout for accompanying visualizers and acoustic videos which are currently in pre-production. Conceptually, THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK is modeled after a three-act movie, sometimes referred to as the Hero’s Journey storyline, manifested as three Parts that eventually combine to form a single album.

PART 1 was heralded by the infectious lead single Van Horn. Known for their cinematic aesthetic, the band brought the western-themed official music video for track directed by Saint Motel frontman A/J Jackson to life with an inventive performance on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!. Earlier this year, the band sold out their entire North American headline tour in support of PART 1, culminating with hometown finale in Los Angeles, days before the country went into quarantine due to Covid-19.

Remaining on the cutting edge of innovation, Saint Motel make history as “the first band to open their own virtual world” powered by Mozilla Hubs.

In 2016, they dropped their Elektra full length debut saintmotelevision as the first-ever Virtual Reality album and first-ever Augmented Reality album and accompanied the record with the free saintmotel AR/VR app.

In recent months, Saint Motel has made a concerted effort to mobilize their fans to join them on a pair of philanthropic causes through special, limited edition merchandise. With blood donations needed now more than ever, the band has partnered with The American Red Cross to offer a Just My Blood Type enamel pin, available for free to those who donate blood. Named for their breakout hit Just My Type, the pins are also available for purchase with 100% of net profits going to The American Red Cross. Likewise, Saint Motel has joined with the National Independent Venue Association’s #SaveOurStages campaign to ask Congress to provide aid to their network of nearly 2,000 independent live music venues across the countrymany of which the band has performed in ߝ that have been 100% shut down with zero revenue due to the pandemic.

Glass Animals New Song “Heat Waves”

Glass Animals releases new single “Heat Waves” in anticipation of their new album Dreamland, coming out August 7th

Watch the “Heat Waves” music video here and listen to the new single here

“Heat Waves” is the brand-new single from Glass Animals. Taken from their fast approaching third album Dreamland, “Heat Waves” is out now on Republic Records. Dreamland will now be released on August 7th, delayed in order to respect and support the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement.

Bursting with all the wonderful tricks that we have come to expect from Glass Animals’ enigmatic frontman and producer Dave Bayley, “Heat Waves” is the introspective summer hit within Dreamland. A scorching, bass-heavy pop-trip, “Heat Waves” is a distorted Glass Animals love song, exploring how relationships can blur your personality and change you in ways you don’t even realize until you take a step back.

“Heat Waves” comes alongside a stunningly cinematic video, directed by Colin Read. It finds Dave Bayley meandering the deserted streets of lock-down London, as on-lookers watch him slowly make his way to an empty venue.

On making the video, Dave says, “The ‘Heat Waves’ video is a love letter to live music and the culture and togetherness surrounding it. It was filmed at the peak of the lockdown in my neighborhood in East London by the lovely people who live around me, just using their phones. These are people who are usually out at shows, in galleries, going to cinemas, etc. These venues are left empty now, and many of them will not survive. The song is about loss and longing, and ultimately realizing you are unable to save something…and this video is about that but for art, being together and human contact. Huge love and thank you’s to everyone who got involved and helped out. When everyone was leaning out of their windows filming, I felt that same sense of togetherness and spine-tingling energy that happened at live shows. It made the coldness of performing to an empty room with the band stuck on screens feel even more heart-breaking.”

Fundamentally a nostalgic memoir of his life so far, in Dreamland Bayley covers expansive and difficult ground. As a result, the brand-new album is packed full of intensely sensitive and personal experiences, none more emotional than when the band’s drummer Joe Seaward was involved in a monstrous bike accident in July 2018, which threatened his life and that of Glass Animals altogether. Born at a time of immense confusion for the band, it’s an album that truly mirrors the uncertainty of the world today.

Originally to be released in May, Glass Animals had planned to celebrate Dreamland’s arrival with two back-to-back shows at the iconic Red Rocks, supported by recent collaborator Denzel Curry. It was due to kick-off a busy 2020 that should have seen the band play venues and arenas across the globe, and celebrate the release of their new record with their fans.

However, with all of that temporarily thrown up in the air and being the extraordinarily forward-thinking band that they have always been, Glass Animals have adapted wonderfully to their new situation. From his home studio, Bayley has been creating, building, writing, performing, producing and beyond to ensure the band is constantly connecting with their international fan base, offering a host of creative distractions for people in lockdown. The video for title track “Dreamland” set the bar impressively high for what can be achieved by one person in his London flat, under remote direction. Elsewhere, Dave has recorded and released a series of covers, including a collaboration with Arlo Parks to take on Drake’s “Hotline Bling.”  In addition, their first release “Your Love (Déjà vu)” reached top 10 at Triple A and Alternative radio, while making waves with its eye-catching music video. More recently, the band has released Open Source, a website where fans can use exclusive, unreleased content to create their own music and artwork, aired their own Dreamland TV Network, and hosted Mario Kart tournaments on Twitch.

Dreamland will be released on Republic Records on August 7th and can be pre-ordered here.

About Glass Animals:

Amassing over two billion global streams to date, British four-piece Glass Animals is led by singer, songwriter and producer Dave Bayley with his bandmates and childhood friends Joe Seaward, Ed Irwin-Singer and Drew MacFarlane. Their second album, How To Be A Human Being, was one of the most critically acclaimed and widely adored records of 2016. With praise from various press outlets, including Billboard, Pitchfork, The FADER, The Guardian, The Telegraph and more, it was nominated for the Mercury Prize Album Of The Year Award in 2017. Glass Animals also made appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Seth Meyers and The Late Late Show with James Corden. As well as producing both of Glass Animals’ studio albums, ZABA and How To Be A Human Being, Dave has worked with a number of artists outside of the band, including 6lack, Khalid, Joey Bada$$, DJ Dahi, Flume and MorMor.

BANKS “Gimme”

BANKS returns with the darkly hypnotic single “Gimme,”which debuted earlier as Zane Lowe’s World Record onApple Music’s Beats 1.

“‘Gimme’ is a song about getting what you want. It’s about knowing what you deserve, saying it out loud, and demanding it with no apologies. I’m ready to release this into the world and begin a new chapter,” says BANKS.

BANKS wrote the song with Buddy Ross (Frank Ocean, HAIM), and joined forces with producers Hudson Mohawke (Kanye West, Drake) and BJ Burton (Bon Iver, Francis and the Lights) to realize her vision. Released by Harvest Records, “Gimme” is the first new music from BANKS since her late 2017 single, “Underdog.” Stream / download “Gimme” HERE. Watch the visualizer HERE.

BANKS has amassed 1.2 billion global streams to date across all of her songs, including over 600 million cumulative streams in the U.S. alone. After the release of her breakout debut album, Goddess, she became the world’s most blogged about artist. The 2014 album included the RIAA-certified Platinum hit “Beggin For Thread” and the Gold single “Waiting Game.” 

The Altar, released in 2016, debuted in the Top 10 in over 30 countries on iTunes. Coup De Main observed, “‘The Altar’ is an album that rewards with each listen, initially packing a powerful punch with its independence and self-determination.”

BANKS’ television performances include “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and “Late Show with David Letterman.” Her songs have been heard in films (Divergent, The Longest Ride) and licensed by such television shows as “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Power.”

LAUV UNVEILS NEW TRACK & VIDEO “DRUGS & THE INTERNET”

MARKS FIRST SONG TO BE RELEASED FROM HIGHLY ANTICIPATED DEBUT ALBUM ~HOW I’M FEELING~

“~HOW I’M FEELING~ (AUTUMN TOUR, 2019)” DATES SET TO KICK OFF IN US ON OCTOBER 5 & HIT CITIES IN UK, EUROPE, AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND

HIT SINGLE “I’M SO TIRED” WITH TROYE SIVAN SURPASSES OVER 225 MILLION STREAMS & CURRENTLY #25 ON TOP 40 RADIO AND RISING

PLATINUM-certified independent singer, songwriter, producer, and pop visionary Lauv unveils new track and music video for “Drugs & The Internet” today! The song marks the first release from the singers highly anticipated debut album titled ~how i’m feeling~, which will see him continuously rolling out singles before its release. The video, directed by Jenna Marsh (Nicki Minaj, Kanye West) sees Lauv getting pulled from reality into a digital universe. He gets trapped and loses himself to the overwhelming stimulus of a world where the internet gets brought to life. Click HERE to watch!

BUY/STREAM “DRUGS & THE INTERNET”

Speaking about the meaning behind the song and video, Lauv said, “I wrote Drugs & The Internet at a time I was struggling with feelings of extreme emptiness and depression. I wrote it as a sort of self-analysis for my obsession with the way I wanted present myself to the world ; a commentary on the world we live today. It is as much self-deprecating as it is serious and sad. It flew out of me in an hour. It felt more therapeutic than any song I’d written before. As the first song off of my album ~how i’m feeling~, it is the perfect entrance into the next phase of my life and music. I am more proud of this song and video than anything i have ever created in my life, and I’m so excited that it’s yours now.”

Earlier this month, Lauv announced his “~how i’m feeling~ (autumn tour, 2019)” and due to overwhelming demand and quick sellouts, he added a 3rd date in Los Angeles, a second date in NYC, Boston and Oakland. The 19-city run is set to kick off on October 5th in Washington, DC, and hit cities across US, UK, Europe, Australia and wrap on November 11th in New Zealand. Opening on select dates are low, Chelsea Cutler and Carlie Hanson. See routing below and click HERE for more info!

Lauv’s current hit single “i’m so tired” with Troye Sivan has accumulated over 225 million streams and is currently 25 at Top 40 Radio in the US and rising. Click HERE to view the video directed by DAD (Camila Cabello, Major Lazer, Alina Baraz) and HERE to view the recently released stripped video of the single.

WATCH IT HERE

GRAMMY® Award-nominated and multi-platinum selling artist JULIA MICHAELS releases the official video for “What A Time” with Niall Horan today. The two performed the song on The Late Late Show with James Corden. Watch HERE.

JULIA MICHAELS recently surprised fans with the release of INNER MONOLOGUE PART I, a collection of highly anticipated new music featuring collaborations with Selena Gomez on “Anxiety” and Niall Horan on “What A Time.”  Upon arrival, the EP debuted at #1 on the iTunes Pop Albums Chart and #5 Overall iTunes Albums Chart, prompting three worldwide trending hashtags on Twitter.  In addition to critical acclaim, the music also received extensive support from artists like Shawn Mendes, Sam Smith, James Bay, Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris, Ingrid Michaelson, Selena Gomez, Niall Horan, and more.  Following the release, MICHAELS joined country superstar Keith Urban on the Australian Leg of his current world tour.

MICHAELS is currently on her first-ever headline tour, “The Inner Monologue Tour,” and is gearing up to release INNER MONOLOGUE PART II. She is also on tour with P!NK for her “Beautiful Trauma World Tour” through May.

In 2015, MICHAELS transitioned from behind-the-scenes as a top songwriter for the likes of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez into a force in her own right. As a solo act, she forged an unbreakable bond with countless fans worldwide and skyrocketed to the forefront of pop. She received two 2018 GRAMMY® Award nominations in top categories such as “Best New Artist” and “Song of the Year” for her debut single “Issues” from the 2017 mini-album Nervous System. “Issues” went triple-platinum, crossed 1 billion global streams, achieved consumption of 10 million, emerged as “the top-selling debut single of 2017, and scored a spot as the only solo female contribution on Variety’s “30 Most Consumed Songs of 2017” list.

MICHAELS fired on all cylinders throughout 2018. Featuring on Clean Bandit’s “I Miss You, she notched her first Top 10 on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart in addition to co-writing and lending her voice to Shawn Mendes’ “Like To Be You,” Lauv’s “There’s No Way, and Noah Kahan’s “Hurt Somebody. She also landed her first #1 at country radio with Keith Urban’s smash “Coming Home. Not to mention, she wrote for everyone from Janelle Monàe and P!nk to Christina Aguilera and Jesse Ware as the year went on. Meanwhile, her solo single “Jump” [feat. Trippie Redd] cracked 100 million streams as she hit the stage at Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! and the Today Show Summer Concert Series to perform it. Along the way, she toured with the likes of Maroon 5, Keith Urban, Shawn Mendes, and Niall Horan. Most importantly though, these experiences prepared her for INNER MONOLOGUE PART I as she developed not only creatively, but personally as well.
