Madonna and Warner Music Group today announced a milestone, career-spanning global partnership that includes a new agreement for her entire recorded music catalog. With global sales of over 300 million records, Madonna is the best-selling female artist of all time, with countless accolades that include seven Grammy Awards, 24 ASCAP Pop Music Awards, and numerous international trophies, including BRIT, Bravo Otto, Danish Music, Edison, GAFFA, International Dance Music, Ivor Novello, Juno, MTV, and World Music Awards, among many others across the globe. She was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2008.

This partnership marks the revitalization of a decades-long relationship with Warner that began with the release of Madonna’s debut single in 1982. The deal encompasses her entire Sire/Maverick/Warner catalog, including global smash albums such as MadonnaLike a VirginTrue BlueLike a Prayer, and Ray of Light. It also includes her three most recent studio albums, MDNARebel Heart, and Madame X, which will join the Warner catalog beginning in 2025. All in all, the new pact includes 17 studio albums plus singles, soundtrack recordings, live albums, and compilations.

Warner Chappell Music also globally administers all of Madonna’s songwriting work. This features such top-charting hits as “Like A Prayer,” “Vogue,” “Into the Groove,” “La Isla Bonita,” “Live to Tell,” “True Blue,” “Open Your Heart,” “Who’s That Girl,” “Express Yourself,” “Lucky Star,” “Take A Bow,” and many more.

2022 will mark the  40-year  anniversary of Madonna’s recording debut. This new deal heralds the launch next year of an extensive, multi-year series of catalog releases that will revisit the groundbreaking music that made her an international icon. For the first time, Madonna will personally curate expansive deluxe editions for many of her landmark albums, as well as introduce unique releases for special events, and much more. The series of releases will be overseen by Warner Music’s catalog team, led by Kevin Gore, President of Global Catalog, Recorded Music, with the first release to be announced soon.

This monumental deal was executed by Madonna’s longtime manager Guy Oseary at Maverick, Allen Grubman of Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sachs P.C., her business manager Richard Feldstein of NKSFB, and Max Lousada, CEO, Recorded Music, Warner Music Group.

Madonna said: “Since the very beginning, Warner Music Group has helped bring my music and vision to all my fans around the world with the utmost care and consideration. They have been amazing partners, and I am delighted to be embarking on this next chapter with them to celebrate my catalogue from the last 40 years.”

Guy Oseary said: “Over the past 30 years, I’ve been fortunate enough to meet and spend time with many of Madonna’s incredible fans, and this new partnership will bring to fruition what so many of them have been patiently waiting for: a celebration of her groundbreaking catalogue. My partner Sara Zambreno and I are working closely with Warner Music Group to bring new life to these iconic works.”

Max Lousada added: “We’re honored to be forming a dynamic new partnership with an incomparable superstar whose influence on our musical and artistic landscape is immense and immutable. Madonna has changed the course of pop and dance music, while taking live performance to new heights of drama and invention. At the same time, she uses her fame to amplify some of the most important social issues and movements of our time. Constantly and fearlessly challenging convention, her four decades of music are not only an extraordinary body of work, but a playbook for creative and cultural evolution.”

On October 8, Madonna will be releasing her highly anticipated documentary film, MADAME X, exclusively on Paramount+, the streaming service from ViacomCBS, and MTV Entertainment Studios in the U.S., Latin America, Australia, the Nordics, and Canada. Fans outside of these markets can watch the documentary on MTV. Filmed in Lisbon, Portugal, the film captures the pop icon’s rare and rapturous tour performance, hailed by sold-out theatrical audiences worldwide. The unprecedented, intimate streaming experience will take viewers on a journey as compelling and audacious as Madonna’s fearless persona. Madame X is a secret agent traveling around the world, changing identities, fighting for freedom, and bringing light to dark places.

In other news, Madonna has announced her birthday wish for friends and supporters to adopt a bed at the Mercy James Centre hospital in Malawi, built especially for children. There are 50 beds in the hospital’s ward, where children recuperate after surgery or regain strength following intensive care. By adopting a bed, you can ensure that any sick or injured child that comes through the hospital doors has access to world-class specialized care. Madonna has challenged supporters to adopt all 50 beds in honor of her birthday. For more information on how to donate, visit HERE.

Sum 41 x Catching Fire

Sum 41 has dropped a reimagined version of their previously released track “Catching Fire” featuring nothing,nowhere. Deryck Whibley wrote this ballad for his wife, Ari Whibley, after her suicide attempt and they are& talking about it for the first time ever in hopes to raise awareness during Mental Health Awareness Month.

Sum 41 fans from all over the world collectively submitted their stories of loss seen in the beautifully shot black and white video for “Catching Fire.” The vision behind the powerful video-turned-memorial is to shine light on suicide prevention and help tackle the stigma behind mental health head on. The video was directed by John Asher, who previously directed Sum 41’s music video for “Never There.”

On the new single, Whibley shares “Writing this song was cathartic for me in dealing with my emotions for the first time about almost losing my wife to suicide. When I first played it for her, it was the beginning of us having an open conversation about what she went through. In sharing her story, we are hoping to let others know they are not alone and that if you need help, there is no shame in saying so.”

Featured artist nothing,nowhere. continues, “As someone who has had to deal with mental illness throughout my life – it was a no brainer when Deryck approached me to get on this song. I think it’s important to let those close to you know that you love them and that you are there for them unconditionally. I’m a lifelong sum 41 fan and I’m honored to be a part of something like this.”

Fans can stream “Catching Fire” now and check out the music video here: smarturl.it/Sum41CFVideo

Armed with the most honest and intimate songs of his career, Whibley poured everything he had into Order In Decline. Producing, engineering, and mixing the album in his home studio, he painstakingly crafted and fine-tuned each song, highlighted by fast and full riffs, guitar solos from lead guitarist/backing vocalist Dave Brownsound, harmonious chords from guitarist Tom Thacker and the heavy, heart-thumping rhythm section of bassist/backing vocalist Cone McCaslin and drummer Frank Zummo. Looking back at the band’s storied 23+ year career, Order In Decline is undoubtedly Sum 41’s heaviest and most aggressive album to date, while also being their most dynamic and raw.

Order In Decline is available now at http://smarturl.it/OrderInDecline.

After over 15 million records sold worldwide, a Grammy Award nomination, 2 Juno Awards (7 nominations), Kerrang! Award in 2002, as well as multiple Alternative Press Music Awards, Sum 41 is quite simply a rock band uncompromising and honest with no intention of slowing down.

Carly Rae Jepsen

Multi-platinum Grammy, Juno and Polaris Prize nominated singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen today releases a unique version of fan favorite track “The Sound”, from her recent fourth album, Dedicated, via Schoolboy/Interscope Records.
Recorded and filmed live in Lapland, Finland – with the support of House of Lapland, Finnair and Visit Finland – “The Sound (Live in Lapland, Finland)” sees Carly and her band strip back the song’s more electronic elements and replace them with organic, more tranquil, instrumentation. In what is a rare moment for an artist, both audio and video were recorded fully outdoors – and the accompanying performance video captures the picturesque setting of the record, on a remote lakeside jetty in Lapland’s Ruka-Kuusamo region. 


“The Sound (Live in Lapland, Finland)” is available now at all digital retailers. Watch the performance HERE.


Says Carly of Lapland: “Nature is a part of my childhood and my very best memories. Here in Lapland I’ve been amazed by how the quiet space allows for ideas to float into my head. It has been unlike anything I have ever experienced.”


Having just played more than 40 shows, including multiple sold out shows in New York and Los Angeles, upcoming behind the scenes footage from the Lapland experience shows Carly and her band taking a moment to relax, while partaking in some of Lapland’s more traditional pastimes. Perhaps best known as “the home of Santa Claus”, it also showcases a different side to Lapland, including the striking “midnight sun.”


Carly is currently in the middle of her Asian tour run and next heads to Australia and New Zealand, for her first ever headline shows in those countries.

Ria Mae New EP Stars

RIA MAE SHARES STRUGGLES WITH SOCIAL MEDIA ON NEW EP STARS

Canadian pop singer Ria Mae takes listeners on an emotional voyage through relationships on her new EP, Stars. Navigating beyond lyrical and sonic boundaries, Stars allows listeners to feel a sense of human connection, something Ria believes is lacking in today’s social climate.

“Hold Me” was inspired by the invasive negativity and anxiety social media create. Nostalgic for a simpler time, the duet emerged after a conversation with Frank Kadillac and Lowell. “We were talking about how easy life used to feel when we were young and how anxious a lot of our peers seem to be right now,” Ria stated in Divine Magazine.

The remainder of Stars illustrates Ria Mae’s ability to empathize with her listeners. “Trixi,” is a provocative track about desire and obsession and is the first character-driven song Ria’s written. “Not Your Type,” Ria’s forthcoming single, is a pro-consent pop song that showcases Ria’s playful side. “It’s You,” is a raw and honest breakup anthem.

Ria Mae’s first single “Bend” became an instant hit, skyrocketing to Top 5 at Hot AC, Top 15 at AC, and Top 15 at CHR radio, reaching platinum certification status. Ria was nominated for “Pop Album of the Year” at the 2018 JUNO Awards for “My Love.” Two years earlier, Ria also earned a JUNO nomination for “Single of the Year” for her platinum-selling hit “Clothes Off” that has over 13 million streams worldwide.

“Growing Pains” Lyrics:
(verse 1)
Make my way through the motions
I try to ignore it
But home’s looking farther the closer I get
Don’t know why I can’t see the end
Is it over yet?

A short leash and a short fuse
Don’t match
They tell me it ain’t that bad
“now, don’t you overreact”
So I just hold my breath
Don’t know why I can’t see the sun
When young should be fun

(Pre-chorus)
And I guess the bad can get better
Gotta be wrong before it’s right
Every happy phrase engraved in my mind
And I’ve always been a go-getter
There’s truth in every word I write
But still the growing pains, growing pains
They’re keeping me up at night

(Chorus)
(hey hey x8)
And I can’t hide
‘cause growing pains are keeping me up
at night (x2)

(verse 2)
Try to mend what’s left
Of my content incomprehension
As I take on the stress
Of the mess that I’ve made
Don’t know if I even care for “grown”
If it’s just alone

(pre chorus)
(chorus)

(Bridge)
It’s starting to look like
Ms. Know-it-All can’t take her own advice
Can’t find
Pieces of my peace of mind
I Cry
More than I want to admit but I can’t lie
To myself, to anyone
Cause phoning it in isn’t any fun
Cant run
Back to my youth the way I want to
The days my brother was quicker to fool
AM radio, not much to do
Used monsters as an excuse
To lie awake
Now that monsters are the ones that I
Have to face
No band-aids for the growing pains
