Billy Ray Cyrus × FIREROSE – New Day

CALUM SCOTT – RISE

CALUM SCOTT SHARES TRIUMPHANT NEW SINGLE “RISE”

LISTEN HERE & WATCH THE LYRIC VIDEO HERE

SCOTT PERFORMS “RISE” ON “LIVE WITH KELLY AND RYAN” OCTOBER 7TH

Today, multi-platinum-selling singer/songwriter Calum Scott premieres his triumphant new single “Rise”, a timely and exhilarating anthem of resilience. Go HERE to stream/download “Rise” now and watch the lyric video HERE.

Produced by Gabe Simon and Jon Maguire, “Rise” offers exactly the kind of reassurance needed in difficult times. As the song unfolds in a joyful and majestic sound: pounding drums, glorious harmonies, urgent piano work. Calum delivers a spirited vocal performance that perfectly captures the uplifting message at the heart of “Rise”. Tune in to see Calum perform the song on October 7th on “Live with Kelly and Ryan.”

“Rise celebrates overcoming, defeating the odds, and prevailing despite the obstacles or the knock-backs you face along the way,” says Calum. “We’ve all faced it during our lifetimes: feeling demotivated or uninspired, feeling like life is out to get you, that it’s easier to stay on the ground when life throws its punches. I wanted to write a song that would empower people to chase down their dreams and to try to embrace life, no matter what they are going through or what their circumstances are. We all have the opportunity to do it our way, to put our best foot forward and to rise.”

At turns wildly soaring and gently reflective, “Rise” marks a bold departure from the soulful minimalism of Calum’s recent single “Biblical”. After performing the heart-on-sleeve ballad on “The TODAY Show”, and releasing its breathtaking video back in June, last month Calum unveiled an American Sign Language (ASL) version of “Biblical” made in collaboration with the Tony Award-winning Deaf West Theatre. Check out the powerfully moving visual HERE.

Calum also featured on Lost Frequencies’ new track, “Where Are You Now” which has already amassed over 50 million global streams. With the official video for “Rise” coming soon, Calum is now gearing up for the release of his eagerly anticipated sophomore album. Due out in early 2022, the album will follow his 2018 full-length debut a widely acclaimed release that hit No. 1 on the iTunes album chart in 21 countries across the globe, in addition to selling more than 3.6 million in adjusted album sales and amassing over 7.5 billion combined streams.

Billy Ray Cyrus × Firerose – New Day

BILLY RAY CYRUS AND FIREROSE PERFORM NEW DAY ON LIVE WITH KELLY AND RYAN

WATCH PERFORMANCE HERE

Lauded by Rolling Stone as a rippy, atmospheric ballad and American Songwriter as an uplifting anthem promising the dawning of a better age, Billy Ray Cyrus and FIREROSE performed their new hit, New Day, on LIVE with Kelly and Ryan today. Click HERE to watch and click HERE to watch their interview.

This Friday, August 13, Cyrus and FIREROSE will perform New Day on the Grand Ole Opry. The performance will be FIREROSE’s debut in the world-famous sacred Circle.

Johnny Cash, June Carter Cash, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and so many more graced this iconic stage before me, so it’s a real honor to have the opportunity to stand in that Circle with Cyrus and perform the song we wrote together that means so much at this time, where we’re all praying for a New Day,’  FIREROSE shared.  

Reviewers across genres are praising New Day:

Billy Ray Cyrus never met a collaboration he didn’t like. This time, he pairs up with Australian singer FIREROSE for this trippy, atmospheric ballad about revitalization and rebirth….lending more evidence that BRC is an ever-changing musical chameleon. – Rolling Stone / Joseph Hudak & Jon Freeman

The new song is an uplifting anthem promising the dawning of a better age… combines elements of indie pop and country, creating a unique sound of two very different performers. Billy Ray Cyrus…added his ever-special country flair. – American Songwriter / Audrey Gibbs

An intriguing collaboration. With a shimmering indie pop sound, crisp beats and an uneasy vocal blend, the song is a pulsating slow jam — and its abstract video matches the vibe. Written by the country star and emerging artist over Zoom, the track features a distinctly conflicted energy, mixing light and dark at the start of a fresh cultural chapter. – Sounds Like Nashville / Lauren Laffer

It’s a hypnotic, swirling, dreamy confection, underpinned by echoey synths and slow, thumpy beats. I can hear this becoming a big pop hit. After all, he’s done it before. – Music Row / Robert K Oermann

FIREROSE’s vocals on ‘New Day’ are crystalline and crisp, and they blend well with Cyrus’ rich vocals. This collaboration is a match made in musical heaven. – Digital Journal / Markos Papadatos

About Jon Batiste
One of the best-known musicians of his generation, virtuoso pianist, singer, bandleader, educator and television personality Jon Batiste has spent his career bringing that music back to where it started — that is, with the people. From his days at Juilliard, where he established his Stay Human band by playing around New York City’s subways and in street performances he called “love riots,” to his work since 2015 as the bandleader and musical director of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, the Kenner, Louisiana native has consistently channeled his superb technical skill and deep knowledge of jazz tradition towards a specific, intentional purpose: making people’s lives better and brighter, one harmonaboard (that’s harmonica and keyboard, combined) solo at a time.

Born into Louisiana’s legendarily musical Batiste family, Jon has performed and recorded widely since his teens. His flexibility as an artist, his fluency in jazz as well as popular music of all stripes, has allowed him to collaborate with legends from Wynton Marsalis, a mentor since his Juilliard days, to Prince — as well as many of the widely-varied artists who appear on the Late Show.

Batiste’s marquee performances have ranged from the Grammy’s, to the Kennedy Center Honors, to the US Open and the NBA All-Star Game — in 2015, Batiste and the Stay Human Band became the first group to play the main stage at both the Newport Jazz and Folk festivals.

Batiste played himself on the HBO series Treme and appeared in director Spike Lee’s Red Hook Summer — most recently, his music was featured in the 2020 Disney/Pixar film Soul. Batiste won a Golden Globe and Critic’s Choice Award for his participation in the soundtrack alongside Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, and the trio are currently nominated for an Oscar and BAFTA for Best Soundtrack.

He’s been awarded the American Jazz Museum Lifetime Achievement Award, the Harry Chapin ASCAP Humanitarian Award and appeared on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list; Batiste also currently serves as the Music Director of The Atlantic and the Co-Artistic Director of the National Jazz Museum in Harlem.

Jon Batiste is devoted to the education and mentorship of young musicians. He has led his own Social Music Residency and Mentoring Program sponsored by Chase, as well as master classes throughout the world. He has also led several cultural exchanges, beginning in 2006, while still a teen, with the Netherlands Trust, which brought students from the USA and Holland to perform with him at the Royal Concertgebouw and Carnegie Hall.

Batiste balances a demanding performance schedule with public speaking engagements, masterclasses, brand partnerships, community activism and acting roles. His composing and songwriting will be featured in his large-scale, genre-melding symphonic work “American Symphony,” set to premiere at Carnegie Hall in 2021 and he has been developing a Broadway musical about the life of famed painter Jean-Michel Basquiat.
