Alesso × Katy Perry – When I’m Gone

Renowned producer Alesso and pop icon Katy Perry come together in collaboration to release When I’m Gone. When I’m Gone released on December 29, 2021, and the highly anticipated official music video is set to release on January 10, 2022. Listen to When I’m Gone HERE.

“When it comes to my music videos, we all know I like to push the boundaries and myself and create unique opportunities for my fans to see them. ESPN and especially College GameDay hold a special place in my heart, so partnering with Alesso to become the first artists to ever debut a global music video within a live event on ESPN made for a perfect and natural pairing,” says Katy Perry.

Alesso, too, chimed in on the song and music video, stating, “”I’m so thrilled that When I’m Gone is finally out. We’ve been waiting the whole year to share it with all of you. I’m honored to collaborate with Katy on such an amazing dance record and with ESPN to become the first artists to premiere our music video at halftime of the College Football Playoff National Championship. I loved working with her and think this song and video came out super special.”

When I’m Gone showcases a mix of high-tech beats paired with heart wrenching lyrics sung by Katy. In the chorus, Katy sings out to a past lover, and assures them that she won’t be that easy to move on from. “I’m never really gone, you think you’re movin’ on, but it won’t be for long, you’ll see.” The technical hit in combination with high-drama lyrics produces a match made in heaven between Katy and Alesso.

The premiere of When I’m Gone tops off a groundbreaking year for the DJ and dance music producer Alesso. Alesso recently paired with OneOf, a green NFT platform, releasing his debut NFT collection Cosmic Genesis. More accomplishments of Alesso include Chasing Stars (with Marshmello feat. James Bay) reaching the top 10 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Song Charts, spending 11 weeks at this spot. Alesso is ringing in the 2022 new year while playing two shows in Miami on New Year’s Eve. In one show, Alesso plays with Doja Cat at Fountaine Bleau Poolside, the other at Liv Nightclub.

Katy Perry accumulates 50 billion streams, accompanied by 48 million adjusted album worldwide sales and 135 million tracks. Katy’s unforgettable 2015 Super Bowl performance stands at the highest-rated in the history of the event. A staple in the industry of pop music, Katy boasts 40M+ monthly listeners on Spotify, with numerous accomplishments to her name. Apart from her esteemed music career, Katy continues to use her platform to spread awareness for several philanthropic foundations.

Nnena Releases Performance of Tangerine Dream

NNENA RELEASES LIVE PERFORMANCE VIDEO OF TANGERINE DREAM, DEBUT EP BIPOLAR AF OUT NOW

CLICK HERE TO WATCH

Today, Nnena releases a stunning live performance video for her track Tangerine Dream. The track is off her recently dropped debut EP Bipolar AF, the first release from the partnership between Loud Robot, the record label from JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot, and RCA Records.

Click links to also watch the insanely clever visualizer plus live performance video for lead singles Rewind and Heart Moan.

An incredible writer, lyricist, rapper and vocalist, bursting with effusive energy and a massive personality, the Cleveland native, born Nnena Adigwe to Nigerian parents, credits some of her robust, descriptive storytelling impulses to her past screenwriting experience. A former basketball player, Nnena began writing comedic sketches during college. That soon led to working on more full-fledged projects—the kinds of works that needed sound tracking. Rather than pay licensing fees, she tried her hand at making her own music.

For her debut EP, Nnena scripted and produced comedic and brilliant bite-sized sketches and live videos to post as companion pieces for the EP track to set the vibe for each song- Check those out on her Instagram.

She explains making music for her is about telling stories that simultaneously define us and connect us to others. I want my music to elicit the truth and make the listener feel comfortable. I want people not to feel alone and I never want my music to leave anyone out.

In the music and visuals that she creates, she shares stories, scenarios, debacles and personal experiences with a warmth, humor, and finesse that almost make you forget how hard life can be. I’ll make the worst situations funny.

Nnena also finds inspiration for her music from the female experience, My music is what other females wish they could say out loud, but I do it for them in a song. 

Nnena has received early coverage from Variety, Teen Vogue, Flood, and support from BBC 1’s Annie Mac, Apple Music’s Ebro, and has been a sought-after songwriter for artists such as Beyoncé, Rihanna and Normani. She has also performed as the opening act for rising star Boogie, Mayorkun, and Trinidad James.

Her music reflects her eclectic influences ranging from Otis Redding to Millie Jackson, from Queen Latifah to Miriam Makeba to Kendrick Lamar and especially, Lauryn Hill, she molded me the most, along with other neo-soul genre artists Musiq Soulchild and Jill Scott, as well from Drake, J. Cole, to Tiwa Savage.

In addition to working on her debut album, Nnena has participated in two writing camps this year for the television series Insecure, created by Issa Rae and Larry Wilmore.

Julia Michaels – Little Did I Know

GRAMMY NOMINATED ARTIST JULIA MICHAELS RELEASES EMOTIONAL VIDEO FOR STUNNING NEW BALLAD “LITTLE DID I KNOW” CO-WRITTEN WITH JP SAXE

Last week, Grammy® Award-nominated multi platinum singer and songwriter Julia Michaels released her full-length debut album, Not In Chronological Order, to critical acclaim.

Watch the newly released video for “Little Did I Know,” directed by Blythe Thomas, HEREWritten with Grammy® Award-nominated singer-and-songwriter JP Saxe, the song is a stunning ballad and standout track from the album. Set to perform on The Ellen Degeneres Show May 7th. New album Not In Chronological Order available now!

About Julia Michaels

Over the past few years, no songwriter has had more of an impact on reshaping pop music than Grammy® Award-nominated and multi platinum-selling artist Julia Michaels, whose razor-sharp perspective on love, loss, and the wide spectrum of the human experience has deservedly catapulted her to the forefront of her industry. Lauded for her work on hit singles by artists like Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Niall Horan, Dua Lipa, Janelle Monáe, Shawn Mendes, P!NK, Ed Sheeran, Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani, Hailee Steinfeld, The Chicks, Keith Urban, Jessie Ware, and more, Julia has spent the last decade honing her craft and delivering fans some of the most evocative music of a generation.

In 2017, Julia embarked on a solo career, separate from her work synthesizing the stories of the stars around her, with her 5x-platinum selling debut single “Issues.” A year later, her peers recognized her stunning work with Grammy® Award nominations for “Best New Artist” and “Song of the Year.” Committing to her solo work, Julia released a series of critically acclaimed EPs, including 2017’s fan-favorite Nervous System and 2019’s critically acclaimed Inner Monologue Part 1 and Inner Monologue Part 2. She also embarked on The Inner Monologue Tour, which marked her first-ever headline tour throughout the U.S. following an enviable run touring the world with an incredible array of artists, including Maroon 5, Keith Urban, Shawn Mendes, Niall Horan, and P!NK.

To date, Julia has notched 25 Billboard Hot 100 entries as a songwriter, including two number 1’s for Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” and Selena Gomez’s “Lose You to Love Me,” in addition to four top 10 hits, including her debut single “Issues.” Of those 25, she has charted four Hot 100 entries as a recording artist including “Issues,” “I Miss You,” “Coming Home” and “If the World Was Ending,” for which she received her third Grammy® Award nomination in the category of “Song Of The Year” with collaborator JP Saxe.

“Writing this song with the person I love helped me realize that I could write a beautiful song about love without deriving it from toxicity,” says Julia.  “Shooting the music video was incredibly vulnerable for me, because when I wrote the song, I associated it with a significant other. When I made the music video, however, director Blythe Thomas made a wall of mirrors, and it forced me to sing these words to myself. I don’t think I’ve ever been that kind to myself, and that scared me. All that emotion in that video is incredibly real. If this process has taught me anything, it’s that sometimes we’re not as kind to ourselves as we should be. I’m grateful to have experienced this moment, and I hope fans resonate with this song and video in a special way like I did.” – Julia Michaels

“It’ll be the best project he’s ever put out.” – Mark Anthony Green on The Weeknd’s new music in the September 2021 issue of GQ

“‘It became nearly impossible to find something else to listen to. Everything else sounded soft. Or didn’t groove enough. Or felt too happy. Or too sad. It was clear to me that this isn’t just the album The Weeknd has always wanted to make; it’s the album we’ve always wanted him to make.” – Mark Anthony Green in GQ

“The music hit the studio like a Mack truck. The new project is packed with party records. Like real-deal, illuminated-white-tiles-on-the-floor party records. Quincy Jones meets Giorgio Moroder meets the best-night-of-your-fucking-life party records. Not anachronistic disco stuff. (Not “cosplay,” as Abel put it.) That sort of retro thing is having a moment right now in pop music, but these records are new. Sweaty. Hard. Drenched-suit, grinding-on-the-girl/boy-of-your-dreams party records.” – Mark Anthony Green in GQ

Brooklyn Michelle QxA

By: Emily Bunn

Brooklyn Michelle, a multi-talented recording artist and producer, premieres her highly-anticipated music video for “Come Here” today. Michelle originally recorded “Come Here” five years ago on her Soundcloud. However, the song has blown up in popularity since, so she decided to rerelease the perfected single with a brand new video–which can be viewed here.

Though Brooklyn Michelle is busy taking the world by storm with her upcoming sophomore album, production company, art work, charity festival, streaming and more, she took the time to speak with 360 Magazine about her inspirations for creating music, the story behind Waffledog Productions, and her upcoming projects in 2021.

  1. What are you most looking forward to regarding your upcoming single and music video release of “Come Here”?

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s reactions to the music video! This is by far my favorite one I’ve produced yet. Plus, it finally has my Waffledog Productions logo right at the beginning to grab everyone’s interest. I’m hoping this leads to other artists wanting me to produce their music videos! I think I’ll finally have time to start doing that this year.

  1. As compared to your release of “Come Here” five years ago on Soundcloud, what differences can listeners expect when listening to this new version?

Updated vocals, a LOT more harmonies, live saxophone and trumpets, and a beautiful Alex Tumay mix.

  1. In your reimagining “Come Here,” how has your music creation process changed as you’ve developed as an artist?

My style has definitely taken on a more groovy aspect than what it was with my debut album “Lithium”. I’ve realized now that the deciding factor on if I like a song or not is the bass line. So, for my sophomore album, I’ve prioritized producing every song around a bass line that either my bass player Monty or I wrote. So whether the tone of a song is happy or sad, you’re still gonna be able to groove to it a bit.

  1. In addition to performing in them, you direct and edit all of your own music videos. How do you find inspiration for the visuals you create to accompany your music?

I get a lot of my inspiration from watching other music videos, but even more so from movies lately. I’ve noticed Ari Aster tends to do this very long push in or pull away shots in his movies which is what inspired the long hallway shot in the second verse of the “Come Here” music video. I added a little spin to it though too (literally).

  1. Why did you decide to title your upcoming, sophomore album “Placebo”?

I wanted to play off of my debut album’s title “Lithium” while also contradicting it. This is going to be a whole new style from me, yet [it is] still cohesive in a way to know it’s my sound. Lithium was about my struggles with bipolar disorder and looking for an outside answer to make me feel better. Placebo is about my struggles of a failed relationship, and looking within myself for how to feel better.

  1. What inspired you to start Waffledog Productions?

I originally created a YouTube channel with this title in the 4th grade. My friend Joanna and I would make skit videos. I kinda did the YouTube thing up until my senior year of high school. I loved writing scripts, making spoofs and eventually created a music account for cover videos. Once it became time to make my first music video, I realized I’ve been doing this my whole life. I know exactly how to plan everything out and bring my visions to life. I now realize I love making videos more than music itself and want to eventually get into TV and film too. And, c’mon, Waffledog is too cool of a name to not use to this day.

  1. You’re the founder of the Purple Palooza festival, an annual charity event to raise awareness for pancreatic cancer. Where and when does this event take place, and how can readers donate?

This event takes place in San Antonio, Texas. The venues have changed every year, but if Covid seems to be under control by fall, I would like to have 2021’s festival at The Paper Tiger in October. If you’d like to donate to our affiliate, you can go to PanCan.org and search for the San Antonio Purple Stride page. That is our annual 5k that we fundraise for all year.

  1. Do you have any other exciting projects coming up in 2021

I do! But nothing [that] I can tell anyone just yet. You’ll have to follow me to find out hehe.

Wolf Alice – SMILE

WATCH THE VIDEO

NEW ALBUM BLUE WEEKEND DUE JUNE 11, 2021

Wolf Alice, Britain’s best band, today release their uncompromising new single “Smile” via. The track was inspired by lead singer Ellie Rowsell’s desire to fight back against those who try to define her, and is the second single from their highly-anticipated third album, Blue Weekend, the follow up to the Mercury Prize winning Visions of a Life.

Listen to “Smile”

Watch the video for “Smile”

“Smile” is carried along on a tide of visceral energy, a song destined to be a live favorite. The band envisaged this during their time recording Blue Weekend in Brussels during lockdown. Rowsell states, “this is one of the songs we wrote thinking that we would play it live. I miss that feeling of singing on stage. It’s like screaming into a pillow or something — you can get away with being more nasty. There’s a whole other part of me missing.”

“Smile” is accompanied by a video directed by Jordan Hemmingway (Gucci, Raf Simons, Comme Des Garçons), the band’s second collaboration with Hemmingway, following previous single “The Last Man On Earth” (watch). The saturated visuals of the band in full-flow, combined with the casting of riotous punk extras and pub locals, provide the ideal hedonistic backdrop to the track.

“The Last Man On Earth” spent 7 weeks on the BBC Radio 1 A-List. It was premiered by Annie Mac as her Hottest Record In The World, further cementing a longstanding relationship between the band and Annie. Last week, the band released a special live version of “The Last Man On Earth” which can be viewed below.

Watch “The Last Man On Earth” live

The release of “Smile” follows the news of the band announcing a 2022 UK & Ireland tour, their first headline shows since 2018.

Wolf Alice are Ellie Rowsell (vocals, guitar), Joff Oddie (guitar, vocals), Theo Ellis (bass) and Joel Amey (drums, vocals). It has been a decade since the band began as a duo of Ellie Rowsell and Joff Oddie,  then later expanding to a four-piece, with Joel Amey and Theo Ellis joining the group. Since then, the band saw their 2015 debut album My Love Is Cool soar to #2 on the UK charts, their sophomore album Visions Of A Life win the 2018 Hyundai Mercury prizeand a GRAMMY nomination for Best Rock Performance. The band played a massive 187 shows on the Visions Of A Life world tour – including a sold out Alexandra Palace, 2 sold out dates at Brixton Academy, and a set on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury.

It was no surprise that creating a follow-up to Visions Of A Life was a daunting task. The record was a huge success, which subsequently led to many months spent on tour – with intercontinental flights, hotels and long-bus journeys taking a toll on the band.

The band decamped to an Airbnb in Somerset, and it was there that they reconfigured who they were together, far away from festival stages, tour buses, awards shows, and fans. They cemented their friendship and set to work on some fledgling demos in a converted church. These demos evolved into Blue Weekend, a record produced by Markus Dravs (Arcade Fire, Björk, Brian Eno, Florence + The Machine) who has aided the band in refining their sound to an even sharper point. Rowsell’s personal storytelling is at the core of Blue Weekend, an album that sees Wolf Alice embrace a newfound boldness and vulnerability in equal measure.

Blue Weekend will be released on June 11th 2021 via Dirty Hit/RCA Records, and will be available on all DSPs & vinyl.
