Following the stellar success of his Don’t Need Love featuring GRACEY, 220 Kid returns with his latest single Too Many Nights alongside close friend and collaborator JC Stewart. Too Many Nights is out now via Astralwerks. Listen HERE and watch the LA road trip themed lyric video featuring 220 KID & JC Stewart HERE.

Too Many Nights encompasses the instantly anthemic melodies and bold, infectious beats 220 Kid is fast becoming synonymous for. A producer, DJ and writer that centers powerful and emotive songwriting at the forefront of all of his music, Too Many Nights was written alongside Joe Janiak (Ellie Goulding, Tove Lo, Snakehips, Britney Spears) and features an impassioned and uplifting vocal from rising pop powerhouse, JC Stewart.

Speaking of the single, 220 Kid said “this is a special single to me, written at a pretty wild time in my life when I was very torn and trying to find answers. I remember going to the studio and texting Joe on the way saying I thought we’d had too many nights in LA and it was taking its toll on my personal life and dream chasing. It has emotional value to me, but it’s also special because it’s a completely different step to what people will expect; they will be thinking we are coming with a copy of Don’t Need Love, but we’re going with something fresh, it doesn’t sound like anything out there, its dramatic and emotional but fun and playful, it’ll have you in your feels but also singing and dancing about.

Combining bold riffs and a progressive dance sound, Too Many Nights brings both a chill house Balearic vibe underpinned by pop lyrics that have potent hit potential. This fusion builds to a harder dance beat and bassline drops making for a record that is truly multifaceted both sonically and lyrically.Too Many Nights follows a string of 220 Kid remixes that recently just dropped, reimagining both the hit Anne Marie single To Be Young featuring Doja Cat as well the latest Little Mix track Holiday. Amassing over 80 million streams across all platforms alongside a top ten spot for his first release, 220 Kid’s musical ascent has been somewhat stratospheric with his breakthrough single peaking at #1 in the US Dance Radio Chart as well as earning gold BRIT certification.

TCTS RELEASES NEW SINGLE “BETTER WITHOUT YOU” FEATURING GLOWIE

TCTS – Better Without You

Igniting 100 million-plus worldwide streams and garnering acclaim from E! News and many more, TCTS uncovers a new single entitled “Better Without You” featuring Glowie today. Get the song HERE via Astralwerks. Watch the lyric video, which received a first look on CULTR, HERE.

The “Better Without You” lyric video immediately shows futuristic, AI-like visuals in the background of the lyrics presented. Along with the futuristic design of the video, the lyrics are often shown in neon colors. This accompanies the artistic and modern aesthetic of the words in a line through an artificial face, for example. The song itself has an edgy, yet pop-like and upbeat rhythm to it. The chorus is very catchy and the video shows a robotic-like woman running through an artificial plain filled with dead-looking mannequins. By the end of the lyric video, the meaning behind the song becomes clear as the robotic-like woman figure ends up coming face to face with herself in a mirror, alluding to the idea that she is better by herself and out of a toxic relationship.

Duckwrth delivers a poignant, poetic, and politically charged statement with the lyric video.

Day Lee Dodges – Bad Vibes

Rising out of New York’s Lower East Side with his effortless hooks, Day Lee releases a new single for “Bad Vibes” via Republic Records. The official lyric video will premiere on YouTube today at 6 pm ET.

On the single, “Bad Vibes,” his melodic Trap&B vocals remain as smooth as it gets. Centered around a “Nelly flip,” skittering cymbals and a simmering beat give way to magnetically melodic verses and a hypnotic hook, “I don’t want you round me with them bad vibes.”

“Lyrically, it’s something a lot of guys and girls can empathize with,” Day Lee explains. “You’re getting a bad feeling in a relationship. You have those butterflies in your chest and need to move on.”

CEELO GREEN – LEAD ME

Five-time Grammy award winning singer, songwriter CeeLo Green releases new music today with the first track “Lead Me” from his forthcoming album entitled “CeeLo Green is… Thomas Callaway” (Easy Eye / BMG). This is CeeLo’s first album in five years and for this highly anticipated next project, he has collaborated with Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, who took on the role of producer of this new, artistic endeavor with CeeLo. The album is available for pre-order today and is slated for release in June 2020.

LISTEN TO “LEAD ME” HERE.

WATCH LYRIC VIDEO HERE. 

Dan Auerbach invited CeeLo to Nashville for some writing sessions without the intention of creating an album, but this unexpected, musical pair started vibing and walked away with a timeless record. For the first time ever while recording, CeeLo sang with a live band in the same room. It was comprised of noteworthy Nashville musicians including Gene Chrisman and Bobby Wood of the Memphis BoysRuss PaulDave RoeBilly SanfordRay Jacildo and Mike Rojas. Working closely together in the studio, the two award winning artists along with renowned writers Bobby WoodDavid FergusonRoger Cook, and Paul Overstreet created a lyrically positive and inspiring, redemption album that is easy to listen to from start to finish.

“I didn’t walk into the studio as the artist CeeLo Green going to record songs for a new album; I went in solely as myself, the writer Thomas Callaway. CeeLo Green preforms the songs that Thomas Callaway writes,” he explains. “I’m a shaman for that old soul and it came through on this album.”

The name of the album gives fans an idea of what to expect from the overall music as “Thomas Callaway” is CeeLo Green’s given name. This raw album is a real glimpse inside his true soulful character and life beyond the Gnarls persona and “Forget You” pop-sound. “CeeLo Green is… Thomas Callaway” is soulful, with gospel undertones and naturally was influenced by its surroundings in Nashville. It is a reflection of who Thomas Callaway is and a nod to his church-going, southern family roots. The soulful single and overall album finds CeeLo channeling luminaries like Bill Withers, Donny Hathaway and Staple Singers.

“We spent weeks writing and singing songs and we never once talked about trying to write a hit….it was so liberating. I think it freed us to where we could follow our hearts. So, we ended up singing about the things that mattered most in our lives – our kids and our loved ones and what we hope for them. We always came back to love and forgiveness and the passing of time. I feel like together we captured some very special moments on tape. For me, this record is about love, healing and peace of mind,” explains Dan Auerbach.

Additionally, CeeLo Green has partnered with @LYFT to provide essential workers in his hometown of Atlanta with transportation. CeeLo is giving away rides to those who need it most. If you or someone you know has a critical need for transportation in Atlanta (i.e., hospital workers, transit workers, first responders, etc.), DM CeeLo (social handles below) and he will respond to as many essential workers possible with a discounted ride code (up to $10). The campaign launches tomorrow April 11th and will run until April 14th. #DoYourPartChallenge #LyftUp

A man of many talents and projects, CeeLo Green is still traveling globally preforming his solo act as well as touring with his original, rap-group Goodie Mob, but all dates have been postponed during the pandemic. Additionally, on August 11th, CeeLo will return to Las Vegas for his 3rd residency entitled “Man in the Mirror” this time at The Flamingo. He also recently appeared on WEtv’s “Marriage Bootcamp” alongside his lifetime partner Shani James, which was also a glimpse into his real life as Thomas Callaway.

As CeeLo’s lyric states in his single ‘Lead Me’, please remember during this unpredictable time in the world that, “It doesn’t matter where we started, just as long as we finish together.

Brianna Cash × “Numb”

LYRIC VIDEO FOR DEBUT SINGLE “NUMB”. WATCH NOW!

“One of R&B’s newest voices clearly knows a thing or two about making an excellent first impression.” – E!

“Cash doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.” – THE FADER

North Philadelphia-bred singer/songwriter/guitarist Brianna Cash releases a lyric video for her debut single “Numb”. The “Numb” single and accompanying music video with Toronto rapper Tory Lanez officially released this past January. The video arrives on the heels of Cash’s stripped-down acoustic video for the song which released this past month, a spellbinding version of the song that showcases the raw heart and talent in Cash’s voice.

Check Out the Lyric Video for “Numb” by Brianna Cash.

Born Brianna Castro, Cash got her start playing in the school band and singing in the church choir. By the age of 15 she’d started writing her own songs, mining inspiration from artists like Stevie Wonder and Lauryn Hill (whose MTV Unplugged special prompted Cash to pick up the acoustic guitar). Soon after linking up with Pop Wansel (who later paved the way for her signing to Fish Grease/ Interscope), she lent her hypnotic vocals to tracks like Tory Lanez’s “Question Is” and landed on The FADER’s list of “5 Artists Ready To Be Philadelphia’s Next Champion.” Read more HERE

Cash brings an uncompromising honesty to each piece of music she creates. “People go back to their [favorite artist’s] first album for everything,” she says. “I want my first album to be like, ‘Oh shit, she came out the gate with some fire. A REAL classic.’ Gotta set the bar for myself to do better.”

Coming together naturally, Jonas and Paloma are the perfect pairing. After long admiring each other’s output, and both having a desire to someday work together, “Mistakes” now arrives as their collaborative hit-in-waiting. Speaking of the track, Jonas comments; “Mistakes is such a special one for me, I’ve wanted to work with Paloma for a long time, and this just connected the dots for us to be able to collaborate in a perfect way. I’m happy I managed to get some influences in there from my UK House and Garage upbringing too.” Paloma adds; “I feel so excited about ‘Mistakes.’ I am a huge fan of MNEK who co-wrote the song and of the dance power of Jonas. I can’t help but move to this tune. It’s a banger!”

His debut album Blue, released in November 2018, has now smashed its way to silver status and its effect is felt the world over with Jonas having been certified platinum over 120 times around the globe.

Becky Hill x U.S. Live Debut

U.K. ARTIST BECKY HILL MAKES HER U.S. LIVE DEBUT WITH AN ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCE AT NYC’S MERCURY LOUNGE ON APRIL 9

LYRIC VIDEO FOR “BETTER OFF WITHOUT YOU” Ft. SHIFT K3Y OUT NOW – VIEW HERE

HILL HAS AMASSED OVER ONE BILLION STREAMS AND CHARTED SEVEN TOP 40 HITS IN UK

Chart-topping U.K. artist Becky Hill will make her U.S. live debut with an intimate, acoustic performance at Mercury Lounge in New York City on Thursday, April 9. BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac has called her “one of the finest voices in pop music today.” With over a billion streams and 20 million Spotify monthly listeners, Hill is now the 2nd most listened to British female artist on Spotify in the U.K. Tickets for this special performance are available HERE.

“IM PLAYING MY FIRST AMERICAN SHOW!! NEW YORK!!” says Hill. “UR in for a treat at the Mercury Lounge as I’ll be playing an intimate, acoustic show on the 9th of April in my 2nd favourite city!”

Renowned for her show-stopping vocal prowess and credentials as a hitmaking songwriter, the 25-year-old artist is one of Britain’s most in-demand musical exports. Popjustice declared her “UK pop’s greatest secret weapon.” To date, Hill has written and performed on seven singles that charted in the top 40 of the UK Official Singles chart yet her roots are firmly ensconced in electronic music. Her songwriting skills have been enlisted by such artists as Tiësto, Jax Jones, Martin Solveig and Little Mix.

“Better Off Without You” is Hill’s first release since 2019’s Get To Know, which Billboard hailed as “electrifying…a must-hear.” A hugely personal body of work that explores the varying stages of love and loss, Get To Know simultaneously serves as an introduction to Hill and a veritable greatest hits collection. It contains the million-selling “Gecko (Overdrive)” with Oliver Heldens, which took the No. 1 spot on the UK Official Singles chart, the UK Top 10 singles “Wish You Well” with Sigala, which has amassed over 100 million streams, and “Afterglow” with Wilkinson, plus the club anthem “Back & Forth” with MK and Jonas Blue. The album also includes her collaborations with MNEK, WEISS and Matoma.
