Savannah Ré has become one of R&B’s brightest new voices by making music with an unyielding intention: to craft songs that forfeit polished stories for authentic ones.

Opia, Savannah Ré’s remarkable debut project, is a testament to her dedication to her craft. Acclaim for Opia has been abundant. FADER, BET, American Songwriter, HYPEBAE, and ELLE Canada among several others have championed Savannah Ré over the past year.

AUSTRALIAN COOL KID YOUNG FRANCO CREATIVE VISUAL – COME THRU

Following the release of his breakout single “Fallin’ Apart” featuring Denzel Curry Pell, Young Franco returns with a visual for his highly addictive single “Come Thru” featuring SonReal & Jalmar. As a track, ‘Come Thru’ deals in the provision of positive energy and trusting your inner confidence. Combining a glitchy synth line with laid back drums and a sexy slick bass line creates a melting pot of formidable two step and raucous energy. Watch here.

Directed by Filipino-Canadian director Khrysta Lloren (also known as NOFAC3), “Come Thru” focuses on surrealist experimentation and queer expression through multimedia art. Inspired by The Nightmare Before Christmas and Radiohead’s music video for “Burn The Witch,” “Come Thru” transforms Young Franco, SonReal & Jalmar into claymation avatars in a hyper-visual world that’s not quite what it seems.

“When I was conceptualizing for Come Thru, I knew I wanted to create an absurdist fiction through the eyes of Young Franco’s clay character. From sculpting each character’s detail to decorating the set, working behind the scenes was just as surreal as the music video,” says video director Khyrsta Lloren. “Everything was scaled down to the size of my hands and you can actually see fingerprints on clay which is a reminder that it’s all handmade. Working with Young Franco and the team was so comforting during the late stages of this pandemic which kept our creative juices flowing.”

A joint effort from start to finish, the trio combine their respective sonic universes, whether established or blossoming, to meet comfortably in the middle. The Canadian raised, LA based rapper SonReal has accumulated over 165 million Global streams and 125 million video views. He has been nominated for multiple Juno Awards throughout his career and one of Son’s previous releases ‘Can I Get A Witness’ has gone on to be certified Double-Platinum in Canada. “Come Thru” is a very handy head start for the Melbourne based / Chilean born and ready to explode rapper, Jalmar, with Young Franco introducing the talent to a global platform. With more original music teased for 2021, the future is looking bright for Jalmar.

Young Franco’s project is currently sitting perched above the clouds, with career highlights being ticked off with every subsequent release. His most recent single, “Fallin Apart” featuring Denzel Curry and Pell took the already glowing artist to angelic levels, which was featured in an Emmy Nominated commercial for Apple Airpods. The single received a full add on Triple J, as well as radio spins globally, and featured on publications such as Clah Magazine, NME, Out Now Magazine, Colors, Sniffers, Happy Mag, Acclaim, Purple Sneakers, Pilerats and more. The track also featured as the soundtrack for Apple’s Airpod ‘Jump’ campaign which has garnered over 10 million views on YouTube and premiered during the Grammys broadcast.

THE TRAGICALLY HIP – SASKADELPHIA

WELCOME TO SASKADELPHIA:

The Tragically Hip Surprise fans with new Album Saskadelphia out Friday May 21, featuring six previously unreleased tracks.

PREORDER THE ALBUM HERE

Celebrated, iconic band The Tragically Hip announce a brand-new album, Saskadelphiaout Friday, May 21.

Saskadelphia (Universal Music Canada/UMe) is made up of six previously unreleased tracks written in 1990. Five recorded in that same year during the Road Apples sessions in New Orleans, and one live track, “Montreal (Live from The Molson Centre, Montreal, Dec 7th, 2000),” written at the same time, but for which the original recording is yet to be found.

With no shortage of material and higher ups at the American record label resisting the band’s call to release a double album, countless tracks were left behind on the studio floor. And so, one album, Road Apples, heads out into the world, a rung on The Tragically Hip’s climb to legend status, while the rest of the tracks are tucked into boxes and moved out of sight.

Until now.

Welcome to Saskadelphia: the record that stayed in the wings as Road Apples hit the stage. The title, a term coined by the band in a nod to the extensive touring they were doing in the early 1990s, was the original working title for Road Apples before it was rejected by those same label execs as being “too Canadian.”

From lead single “Ouch,” which greets listeners with the familiar roaring vocals of late singer and lyricist Gord Downie, to “Not Necessary,” a song whose fiery sound is layered with gentle and emotional lyrics – are pure, undistilled The Tragically Hip, as Rob Baker (guitar), Gord Downie (vocals, guitar), Johnny Fay (drums), Paul Langlois (guitar) and Gord Sinclair (bass) lay the groundwork for their unmistakable sound.

“I went ‘Wow’ when I heard ‘Ouch’ after all this time,” says Rob Baker. “We were a pretty good little band.”

After rediscovering the tracks, they wrote more than three decades ago, The Tragically Hip knew they had to share the music with fans. Of these abandoned souvenirs from the past, Johnny Fay said, “We didn’t know what was there, so this meant baking them and listening to them as they were being transferred. Hearing them for the first time in 30 years was crazy.”

The Tragically Hip are set to receive the 2021 Humanitarian Award Presented by Music Canada at the 50th Annual JUNO Awards on Sunday, June 6, in Toronto. Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductees and rock icons, Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson of Rush will present the band with the award. The award recognizes outstanding Canadian artists or industry leaders whose humanitarian contributions have positively enhanced the social fabric of Canada and beyond. The broadcast can be streamed globally here.

Full Track List:

  1. Ouch
  2. Not Necessary
  3. Montreal (Live from The Molson Centre, Montreal, Dec 7th, 2000)
  4. Crack My Spine Like a Whip
  5. Just As Well
  6. Reformed Baptist Blues

About The Tragically Hip

Critically acclaimed for more than three decades, The Tragically Hip have been at the heart of the Canadian musical zeitgeist, evoking a strong emotional connection between their music and their fans that remains unrivalled. The five-piece group of friends – Rob Baker (guitar), Gord Downie (vocals, guitar), Johnny Fay (drums), Paul Langlois (guitar) and Gord Sinclair (bass) – grew up in Kingston, Ontario. The Tragically Hip have achieved both mass popularity with more than 10 million albums sold in Canada and over 1.5 million sold in the U.S, as well as peer recognition through 15 Juno Awards – picking up their last two for Group of the Year and Rock Album of the Year for Man Machine Poem. Their studio catalog includes their self-titled debut album The Tragically Hip (1987), Up To Here (1989), Road Apples (1991), Fully Completely (1992), Day For Night (1994), Trouble At The Henhouse (1996), Phantom Power (1998), Music @ Work (2000), In Violet Light (2002), In Between Evolution (2004), World Container (2006), We Are The Same (2009), Now For Plan A (2012), Man Machine Poem (2016) and Saskadelphia (2021).  A National Celebration was the final show of The Tragically Hip’s Man Machine Poem Tour recorded on Aug. 20, 2016, at the K-Rock Centre in their hometown of Kingston, Ontario, and is their last performance as a five-piece band. Through their career, the band became a cultural touchstone in Canada and, despite their accolades and numerous recognitions, will always be proudest of the humanitarian work they have done over the years through numerous charitable organizations and causes.

See The Tragically Hip in a rare performance with Feist at The 50th Annual JUNO Awards, broadcast from Toronto on Sunday, June 6, 2021.

Alessia Cara – This Summer: Live Off The Floor

Grammy Award®-winning singer-songwriter Alessia Cara gives fans around the world an intimate look into her creative process and the live evolution of her deeply personal songs with the release of her new EP, THIS SUMMER: LIVE OFF THE FLOOR, available at all platforms today via Def Jam Recordings. Each song on the live EP will be accompanied by a new music video, shot in the studio where they recorded the EP. 

Alessia also recently announced she will be donating her share of net royalties to Save the Children for the next 21 years. She explained her decision further on this Instagram post: “I put out an EP last September and shortly after recorded a live off the floor version, which was set to come out this summer. Then the world flipped upside down, so I decided to donate all my proceeds from this EP for the next 21 years to ‘Save the Children’, a global organization that saves and improves the lives of children who have been denied their rights by ensuring they have shelter, food, protection, healthcare, and education. This includes the 12 million kids currently suffering in Yemen, Indigenous children in Canada, children of colour in vulnerable communities, and anyone who needs help across 117 countries.

Recent events have made it even more evident that we need to uplift and care for the youth as much as possible. There are so many kind, colourful, intelligent, and driven kids who don’t have access to the resources they need in order to become the best future leaders or simply live a life they deserve. We won’t see a better world unless the ones who can one day change it are equipped to fulfill their true potential. Thanks to my team for getting on board, and to the wonderful musicians who played on this record. Hope this will be a bit of light in a (for lack of a descriptive enough term) weird time. Love, Alessia”

THIS SUMMER: LIVE OFF THE FLOOR presents newly recorded live performance versions of all six songs from the original This Summer EP. Recorded in a live floor studio session with a group of masterful players, including lush string arrangements,  LIVE OFF THE FLOOR will include bonus live versions of Alessia’s landmark global hits “Here,” her triple platinum debut single, and “Scars To Your Beautiful,” her double platinum hit. Last year, Alessia thrilled fans touring her headlining show and accompanying Shawn Mendes on his world tour, and her September EP release This Summer chronicled her experiences as only Alessia could: with depth, emotion, introspection, and the wicked wit her fans have grown to love.

Most recently, Alessia performed “Rooting For You” at this year’s Juno Awards where she was the biggest winner of the night taking home Album of the Year, Pop Album of the Year and Songwriter of the Year.

April 22nd marked the premiere of the #1 Netflix animated feature The Willoughbys, in which Alessia (in her first voice-over acting role) joined an all-star cast including Will Forte, Maya Rudolph, Terry Crews, Martin Short, Jane Krakowski, Sean Cullen, and Ricky Gervais.

2018’s “Best New Artist” Grammy Award Winning Canadian singer/songwriter and Def Jam Recordings artist Alessia Cara emerged onto the music scene in 2015 with her first release, “Here,” a global anthem that grabbed the world’s attention when it garnered over 500,000 streams on Soundcloud in its first week.  “Here” went on to become Spotify’s Most Viral Song of 2015, selling over 3 million copies.  Her five-track EP, Four Pink Walls, soon followed, leading to the release of her RIAA platinum debut album KNOW-IT-ALL (November 2015). Alessia’s multi-platinum #1 hit single of 2016, “Scars to Your Beautiful,” was her gut-wrenching take on female identity, on body image and on deleterious behaviors in the name of beauty.  “Stay” her #1 hit with Zedd sold over 2 million copies and received Song Of The Summer raves. Also in 2016, Alessia lent her voice to “How Far I’ll Go,” penned by Lin-Manuel Miranda, official song for Disney’s animated film Moana.  The 4x-platinum “1-800-273- 8255,” her historic collaboration with fellow Def Jam artist Logic, was one of 2017’s landmark singles with over 9 billion streams worldwide, contributing to her being named the most-streamed new female artist of 2017.  “Growing Pains” (June 2018), was the prelude to Alessia’s second album, her critically acclaimed THE PAINS OF GROWING (released in November), which included the follow-up single releases “Trust My Lonely” and “Out Of Love.”

A JUNO award winner for 2016 Breakthrough Artist of the Year in her native Canada, Alessia went on to receive the “Rule Breaker” honor at the Billboard Women in Music annual event.  She won MTV VMAs in 2017 for Best Electronic Dance Video (for “Stay”) and Best Fight Against The System (for her multi-platinum #1 Billboard Pop Song “Scars To Your Beautiful,” which she and Logic performed with Khalid as the climactic moment of that year’s Grammy broadcast).  Alessia also won back-to-back ASCAP Pop Awards for “Stay” and “Scars To Your Beautiful”; along with Dance Song of the Year (for “Stay”) at the iHeart Radio Music Awards. She has earned nominations for Favorite Female Artist – Pop/Rock at the 2017 American Music Awards, the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Breakout Artist, the Billboard Music Award for Top New Artist, the BET Award for Best New Artist, the BBC Award for Song of The Year, and many other top honors. Most recently, Alessia won Album of the Year, Pop Album of the Year and Songwriter of the Year at the 2020 Virtual Juno Awards.
