TIM RICE AND ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER – JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR

SPECIAL 50th ANNIVERSARY EDITIONS OUT SEPTEMBER 17, 2021

ALBUM REMASTERED AT ABBEY ROAD

To mark the 50th anniversary of the 1970 concept double album, Jesus Christ Superstar, it has today been announced that a variety of special anniversary edition albums will be released September 17. This landmark release, which includes full cooperation from the creators Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, features an array of exclusive demos, commentaries, interviews and much more.

In 1970, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber released Jesus Christ Superstar as a concept double album. It became a massive global best-seller, topping the US Billboard Top LPs chart in both February and May 1971, as well as ranking at number one in the year-end chart. By 1983, the album had sold over 7 million copies worldwide.

However, the journey to international success was far from straightforward. As unknown names in musical theatre, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber were unable to find a producer willing to stage their ambitious idea for a religious-themed rock opera. Eventually, they persuaded MCA records to let them record the score first. Using a full orchestra, and with the outstanding talents of Ian Gillan, Murray Head, Yvonne Elliman and The Grease Band, they created a masterpiece that revolutionized the form of musical theatre.

Within a year of its chart success, stage productions of “Jesus Christ Superstar” began to appear all over the world, leading to record-breaking runs in the West End, a hit Hollywood film, Tony nominations and Olivier Awards. Its influence and impact have not diminished: in 2018 the NBC live production of the show, starring John Legend and Sara Bareilles, resulted in Emmy Award wins for Rice and Lloyd Webber (thereby making them two of the 16 people in history to have won an Emmy®, a Grammy®, an Oscar® and a Tony®).

Andrew Lloyd Webber said, “A musical about Jesus Christ! Back in 1969 the mere thought had theatre producers falling about with laughter.  But somehow Tim Rice and I persuaded MCA to record a single. It came at a time when fusion was all the rage. The Rolling Stones had recorded with the London Bach Choir. Deep Purple’s Jon Lord composed a symphony for rock band and orchestra. So I was like a kid in a sweet shop when I was able to combine a rock band, a symphony orchestra and a gospel choir in what was the first track to be recorded, simply titled Superstar. Overriding everything was that we were telling our story in sound – and sound alone. We had none of the visual elements of theatres and film to fall back on. A cast-iron musical and dramatic structure was the key. Dialogue had no place on a record, so music and lyrics had to carry everything. In truth, we were writing a musical radio play. Ultimately, this gave us one enormous advantage. Audiences came to know our recordings so well that no future director or producer could add musical passages for scene changes or tamper with the construction. The score had become set in stone.”

Tim Rice stated, “I have nothing but fond memories of the writing and recording of Jesus Christ Superstar. We were incredibly lucky; we had a record company and a management team who were willing to take huge risks. Not just in terms of belief in our idea but also in terms of providing a budget to fulfil our musical vision which brought together a rock band, a full orchestra and not just one but two separate choirs.” He added, “I’m incredibly proud and grateful to have been part of it all, perhaps more now at 76 than I was at 25.”

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and three-time Grammy Award-winner Nile Rodgers has commented on the impact of the musical through his career, stating “Jesus Christ Superstar permeated every part of our lives then. It was a cultural explosion, like an earthquake or asteroid crashing…with Tim, he made a genius work in Jesus Christ Superstar, which was as revolutionary to hippies as Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew was to jazz.”

The special anniversary editions are a celebration of the original 1970 concept double album and its continued success spanning 50 years. With the new editions all having been re-mastered at Abbey Road, fans have a great selection to choose from. There is a 10×10” 3-CD Celebration Box Set with exclusive unreleased material, as well as a 100-page hard-back booklet. Inside, fans can dive into interviews between Lloyd Webber and Rice, essays from famous figures including Nile Rodgers and Matt Berry, the 1970 lyric book, memorabilia from Tim Rice’s personal collection and more. Also available are 2CD Digipak set, 2LP gatefold edition which have been half-speed mastered, 2LP gatefold limited edition which comes as a replica of the original 1970-fold-out envelope sleeve. These special anniversary editions are also available in SD/HD versions in deluxe and standard edition.

Zhu × John the Blind – Monster

Zhu unveils new single, Monster, in collaboration with John the Blind. 

Grammy-nominated artist Zhu teams up with acclaimed singer/songwriter/producer John The Blind on the new single, Monster, released today via Astralwerks. A stunning departure from Zhu’s dusky signature sound, the track is a sparkling, straight-up celebration of unconditional love.

“I fell in love when you recognized my darkness/Made friends with all my monsters/And you still wanna stay, still wanna stay,” sings John, who takes the lead on vocals, with harmonies and a soulful falsetto closing from Zhu. The two artists produced and performed the track together, with Zhu on bass and John on guitar. 

“I wanted to create a summer anthem for the kids who are finally able to go out,” says Zhu.

John The Blind – also known as John Ryan – released isolation, his first full-length album, earlier this year. His vocals have been heard on tracks by Pitbull, Brass Knuckles, and DJ Snake. A multi-Platinum songwriter and producer, he is also known for his work with One Direction, Maroon 5, John Legend, and others.

Tickets go on sale today for Zhu’s October 10 and 11 shows at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre and his November 24 and 26 dates at Avant Gardner in Brooklyn. Zhu will perform a unique show each night. Shiba San will join as a special guest on all dates. Zhu will also be performing at numerous 2021 festivals, including ARC, III Points, Electric Daisy Carnival, and Outside Lands. 

In May, ZHU played an unprecedented sold-out, six-night run at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO. Westword said, “dancing came easy to the beats of Zhu, who is as ultra-cool as musicians get and wildly talented, bringing in house music that could score a buzzed drive down Sunset Boulevard.” EDM.com praised his “epic, snow-covered return to Red Rocks,” while HITS Daily Double praised Zhu’s performance as “equal parts mesmerizing and invigorating – a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”

Fresh off the release of his third studio album, Dreamland 2021, Zhu is featured on the cover of the July issue of DJ Mag. Hailing Dreamland 2021 as among the “50 Best Albums of 2021 So Far,” Billboard said, “oscillating between fuzzy, pulsing house (Sweet Like Honey) and spooky, ultra-low BPM, piano-laden meanders through the underworld (I Need That) the sonics are varied but the ambiance is consistently shadowy, falling also into the aural lineage of Zhu’s two previous LPs.” The Los Angeles Times observed, “it’s a record about profoundly missing the club and the shot at connection it offers.” 

In an interview with the Times’ August Brown, Zhu talks about the album, the return to live entertainment and his experience as one of the most prominent Asian American musicians working today.

Alongside his music, Zhu has passionately pursued his interest in fashion, playing an essential part in the design of his fashion-forward merch. He is dropping new merchandise from his highly anticipated SUMMER OF DREAMLAND series each Thursday at 10:00 AM PT. The collection includes slides, kimonos, a sequined bomber, a tactical vest and a wrench pendant in addition to bucket hats, t-shirts, socks and hoodies – all in Zhu’s trademark colors, black and orange.

EVIDENCE Draws Attention to Social Injustice via Impactful Short Film

Damian Marley, Nabil Elderkin, Berner & More Join Evidence Co-Founder’s Dan & Casey Dalton to Launch Social Justice Cannabis Brand EVIDENCE

On the eve of Juneteeth, and coinciding with the 50th Anniversary of President Nixon’s War on DrugsEVIDENCE officially launched with a video collaboration via Rolling Stone between artist, cannabis activist Damian Marley, EVIDENCE Creative Director Nabil Elderkin who is also a legendary music video filmmaker known for his work with Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Frank Ocean, John Legend; and cannabis entrepreneur, artist, philanthropist, Berner. Produced by music manager, activist and EVIDENCE Co-Founder Dan Dalton, the short film beautifully encapsulates the social justice movement and message behind EVIDENCEa much-buzzed about cannabis brand that packages its flower in police-style evidence bags with the intent of not-so-subtly compelling customers to reckon with the racial disparities surrounding drug-law enforcement.

Everyone involved has a singular goal: to bring attention to the 40,000 prisoners of cannabis prohibition, and $1 from every EVIDENCE cannabis bag sale goes to criminal justice reform non-profit Last Prisoner Project.

Operating out of an abandoned, high security private prison in Coalinga, California, EVIDENCE Co-Founder Casey Dalton says, “We grow weed at a prison to get people out of prison for growing weed.”

Evidence and Last Prisoner Project both stand for a very honorable cause,” said Damian Marley. “With Last Prisoner Project, through the work that they’re doing in trying to get people who are incarcerated for cannabis out of jail; and Evidence through being a brand that is helping to support that same movement. To me it was a victory to be able to turn a facility that was once a place of despair, doom, and gloom, into something that is now a place of joy and healing. We are proud to be a part of that.

The EVIDENCE parent company, Ocean Grown Extracts, is a family-owned, woman-run cannabis brand with a deeply ingrained social justice mission. Since co-founding the California-based company, siblings Casey, Dan, and Kelly Dalton have sought to raise awareness surrounding the racial inequities inherent in the War on Drugs. In a particularly impactful move, the Daltons purchased an abandoned, high-security private prison in 2016, then transformed that space into a state-licensed facility where they cultivate, manufacture, and rigorously test a variety of cannabis formulations. With their recent triumphs, including this launch of EVIDENCE, Ocean Grown continues to create exceptionally clean and high-quality products.

Along with establishing Ocean Grown as one of the first large-scale cannabis manufacturing permit-holders in the state of California, the Coalinga space almost immediately boosted the local economy, eliminating the city’s debt and generating over 100 jobs in its first year of operation. And in a poetic turn of events, the company assembled their team of security personnel from several former guards from the former prison, this time hiring them to keep watch over their crop of cannabis plants, not people.

Ocean Grown has recently achieved several milestones such as securing the first outdoor cultivation license in Fresno County a monumental accomplishment in an area recognized as one of the most productive agricultural regions in the entire world. They are also gearing up to open a retail store and consumption lounge in Coalinga, a location primed to be a destination spot for road trippers making the trek between Los Angeles and San Francisco. In all its endeavors, Ocean Grown and EVIDENCE remain passionately committed to correcting the injustices associated with cannabis prohibition, and building a sustainable, more equitable future for the industry at large.
