For all the details on Gulf Shores, visit their website or visit the Hangout website for lodging options and more information.

Beyond the music itself, the community aspect of Hangout remains at the core of the festival’s experience. This starts with the festival’s logo known as the “shaka,” which symbolizes the “hang loose” mantra of beach and surf culture to many with a deeper meaning that represents solidarity, friendship, compassion, respect, and mutual understanding.

This extends to every aspect of Hangout, who focus much of their attention on social and environmental responsibility along with community engagement. This includes measures related to diversity, equity & inclusion, taking steps toward environmental sustainability, and supporting local charities. More information on these actions can be found on Hangout’s website.

About Hangout Music Festival

To put it simply, Hangout Music Festival is a music vacation on the beach. The award-winning festival takes place on the beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama — just a short drive from the Pensacola, FL and Mobile, AL airports. Hangout is as much a vacation as it is a concert event. Beyond a diverse music lineup of top acts, fans can also take advantage of festival amenities including seaside beach clubs, a full-size roller rink, beach volleyball, main stage inground pools, Gulf-front hammocks, delicious food, VIP options, and more. It has been awarded as Pollstar’s “Music Festival of the Year” and is continuously recognized as one of the best festivals in the US.

Taylor Swift × Red (Taylor’s Version)

Following the long-awaited release of Red (Taylor’s Version), Taylor Swift has yet again made history in the music industry. The ultimate version of her 2012 classic, Red (Taylor’s Version) has become Taylor’s 10th album to move over one million album equivalents during its release week.

Red (Taylor’s Version) consists of an astounding 30 songs, including nine unreleased tracks – “Better Man (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault),” “Nothing New (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)” [feat. Phoebe Bridgers], “Babe (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault),” “Message in a Bottle (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault),” “I Bet You Think About Me (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)” [feat. Chris Stapleton], “Forever Winter (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault),” “Run (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)” [feat. Ed Sheeran], “The Very First Night (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault),” and “All Too Well (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)” [10 Minute Version].

Red (Taylor’s Version) debuted at #1 in the U.S. and marked the biggest album sales debut in the U.S. with 39k units, and the highest first week sales of any female artist in 2021. Total consumption reached an astonishing 605k units.

Taylor has become the only artist to successfully debut atop the Billboard 200 and Billboard Hot 100 for a third time, and in less than 16 months. The new version of “All Too Well” celebrates Taylor’s fourth #1 debut on the Billboard Hot 100. “All Too Well” also became the longest song to enter and reach #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

After going live, Red (Taylor’s Version) surpassed Spotify’s biggest opening day streams of all-time for a female with over 90 million streams, a record earlier held by Taylor herself. Red (Taylor’s Version) is Taylor’s fifth successive album to surpass 50 million Spotify streams in only 24 hours. The album has accomplished the greatest streaming week of 2021 for an album by a female artist, surpassing 300 million streams.

The album has also attained the leading vinyl album sales week since tracking first began in 1991. Red (Taylor’s Version) topped the past record that was also set by Taylor in 2021 with Evermore. With the release of this album, Taylor has also now locked in the record for fastest accumulation of four #1 albums by a solo artist in history.

To celebrate the release of Red (Taylor’s Version), Taylor wrote and directed the short film All Too Well The Short Film, inspired by the 10-minute-plus song of the same name. The 13-minute film stars Sadie Sink, Dylan O’Brien and Taylor Swift.

Taylor continued to launch a full-scale television takeover appearing on an array of shows. Taylor performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (watch HERE), Late Night With Seth Meyers (watch HERE), Good Morning America (watch HERE) and Saturday Night Live (watch HERE) with a performance of the 10 minute version of “All Too Well.”

Festivity revolving the release continued with the release of the official music video for “I Bet You Think About Me (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)” [feat. Chris Stapleton]. The filmic release was directed and co-written by Blake Lively and stars actor Miles Teller and Taylor (watch HERE).

ALLISON PONTHIER – LATE BLOOMER

ALLISON PONTHIER’S NEW SINGLE, “LATE BLOOMER,” IS OUT TODAY

WATCH THE VISUALIZER HERE 

Fresh off a tour with Lord Huron, a festival performance at Austin City Limits, and the release of her debut EP, Faking My Own Death (Interscope Records), Allison Ponthier returns with a simmering, swampy anthem for those who need a little time to come to terms with their sexuality. While her debut single, “Cowboy,” dealt with the difficulties of coming out, “Late Bloomer” portrays the process as a joyful one. Listen HERE.

“‘Late Bloomer’ is about how much fun coming out is. A lot of people describe it as going through a second puberty. You learn a lot about yourself,” explains Allison Ponthier. “That’s why when people come out, they often change how they look aesthetically. They try new things and make new friends. ‘Late Bloomer’ is really about celebrating that. It’s about the reward you get for finally being brave enough to be yourself. There’s no rush. There will always be people there who are ready for you whenever you’re ready.”

The 25-year-old Texas-born, Brooklyn-based artist wrote “Late Bloomer” with Ethan Gruska (Phoebe Bridgers, Trombone Shorty) and Dan Wilson (Adele, Leon Bridges), who also produced the song. The accompanying visualizer, which takes its inspiration from Little Shop of Horrors and “as-seen-on-TV” marketing, introduces a Muppet-like “late bloomer” plant, skilled at skateboarding, karaoke, tattoo art and more. View HERE.

“It’s basically just about being a bad boy, which I always wish I was,” she confesses.

Ponthier and Lord Huron are featured in the first video installment of Consequence of Sound’s new series, “Two for the Road,” which features conversations with artists who are touring together. View HERE. Check out their recent collaboration, “I Lied,” HERETipping Ponthier as one of the “Artists Guaranteed to Turn Heads at ACL Fest,” The Austin Chronicle said, “The touches of pop linger in a swaying haze that cabarets her country-leaning melodies, resulting in the kind of surreal Western pop that swells the sense of dislocation and uncertainty while beckoning warmly to follow.”

Growing up as a wide-eyed misfit in the Lone Star State, Ponthier dreamed of running away to New York City. When she made the move to Brooklyn at age 20, she felt out-of-place in a new way – like a goody-two-shoes Southerner in the epicenter of East Coast hipsterdom. The corresponding internal journey has inspired the string of reflective, idiosyncratic yet relatable songs found on Faking My Own Death, hailed as “stellar” by NME.

Sloppy Jane – Party Anthem

Haley Dahl, who records as Sloppy Jane, has released her new single, “Party Anthem”, marking the lauded musician’s first release as the newest signing to Phoebe Bridgers’ Saddest Factory Records. Dahl has also revealed details for her forthcoming new album, Madison, set for release on November 5th. “Party Anthem” is a soaring orchestral ballad that comes on like Kate Bush leading Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band or Laura Nyro fronting Olivia Tremor Control. It’s accompanied by a captivating video shot in 16 mm and filmed inside the Lost World Caverns in West Virginia, the place where Dahl recorded all of Madison, bringing in 21 bandmates from all around the country to make an impressive and ambitious orchestral album recorded deep inside the caves. It’s the first time someone has ever recorded an entire album in a cave, and the results are sonically stunning; Madison is an astounding, glorious record of highest order melodrama. 

Sloppy Jane will celebrate the album release with a headline show in New York City at Baby’s Alright on November 7th. She will also be opening for Iceage in February. All dates below. 

On signing to Saddest Factory Records and crafting her latest album, Dahl shared, “Phoebe and I made friends in high school when I was goth and didn’t bathe and she wore dresses with little bicycles on them – we mistook each other for cool then, and it lasted. Phoebe is one of my closest friends, and is also someone who has always seen that the things that make my work different are what make it valuable. She played bass in Sloppy Jane. When I was moving to New York I talked about how I wanted to make the band bigger and incorporate chamber instruments, and a lot of people didn’t get what I meant, but Phoebe said, ‘Go get your orchestra.’

When I started talking about recording in caves, she was one of the few people to really get it immediately and thought it was the coolest thing. To work with someone who has so much personal context and enthusiasm was kind of a no-brainer. The label name “Saddest Factory Records” came from a joke I made on twitter, and I kind of think that’s representative of what my ideal professional trajectory looks like- me and my same friends who understand each other making the same jokes over and over again while our platforms expand.”

Phoebe Bridgers will join Dahl for an IG Live chat on Friday, September 10th at 3:30pm ET/ 12:30pm PT. 

Click HERE to watch the video for “Party Anthem.” Click HERE to buy/stream “Party Anthem.”

For Madison, Dahl spent three years exploring caves that could capture her vision for the album. Her search took her across the USA, obsessing over the different acoustics of each option,  before landing on Lost World Caverns. The result is a beautiful, personal labor of love; a sweeping grand gesture, a powerful statement about obsessive love, and about growing into yourself in the aftermath of a life-changing relationship.

Dahl and her 21 bandmates recorded all of Madison from inside the caves from 3pm to 8:30 am each day over the course of two weeks. To access the space, they’d enter through the back of a gift shop, down a long tunnel where they’d walk down 200 feet of stairs to reach the entrance. Dahl and her bandmates did this steep walk with a piano. The ceiling of Lost World Caverns is massively high and is a perfect dome. The inside was also 98 percent humidity, leading to both stellar sound and also problems with tuning and gear. Engineer Ryan Howe sat in his parents Subaru above the cave with his mixing board and computer, and threaded cables down 90 feet through a hole in the ground to the ceiling of the cave.

This album, so fully realized and diligently executed, is a long time coming for Dahl, who has been performing as Sloppy Jane since she was a teenager. In those days, Sloppy Jane was a three-piece punk band. Its earliest members were Phoebe Bridgers on bass, Sarah Cath on guitar, and Imogen Teasley-Vlautin on drums. Now the band has over a dozen members, and has transformed into a chamber pop project. Dahl also learned so much as a musician: on Madison, she learned how to write for chamber instruments and taught herself the piano. The record is difficult to categorize. It’s David Bowie but also when the song “Crying,” by Roy Orbison plays at the end of Harmony Korine’s Gummo. It’s My Chemical Romance meets Sgt. Pepper. Courtney Love and Queen. It’s a huge, flowery, velvety thing full of toy horses and stalagmites. It follows one major throughline: a grand gesture so large that it moves the whole Earth.

The hotly tipped singer combines vocal nuance and restraint, nagging hooks, languorous slow-disco grooves and candid lyrics, with beautiful results – The Sunday Times Culture

Keep your eye on this one – L’Officiel

London based singer/songwriter Delilah Montagu today releases the 9-track ‘Baby’ EP. ‘Baby’ marks the 23 year-old’s third EP and signals a sonic departure from last summer’s brooding and melancholic This Is Not A Love Song EP.

Produced by Benjy Gibson, who co-wrote every song with Delilah, the EP steers away from the autobiographical nature of her previous releases, instead creating characters in a hedonistic, passion-fuelled fantasy world that the pair lived vicariously through as the world was at a standstill. The EP features additional production work by Benjy Gibson’s brother, BRIT Award winning producer Fred again.. on opening track BABY, as well as guitar lines from Billie-Eilish approved TikTok sensation Towa Bird on Coming For Ya

Current single Coming For Ya sees Delilah embrace a new sense of self and freedom as she becomes the narrator on this project born out of lockdown isolation. Delilah discovers a new acceptance in her own sexuality, whilst in the official video she explores real life couples of all sexualities and backgrounds; I’ve had girlfriends and boyfriends, but I don’t identify strongly with being gay, straight or bisexual, says Delilah. I now know that this fluidity can be freeing. It doesn’t mean I’m confused and I don’t need a label.

Above all, Delilah’s new EP Baby is about freedom, feeling and taking back control of your happiness. There’s been a huge shift for me in my ability to express myself, says Delilah. I used to be so afraid of being a woman, ashamed of feeling sexual, scared of falling in love, but I’m embracing it all with this EP.

About Delilah Montagu

Debut EP In Gold introduced Delilah in 2019 with its pensive soulful rumination on coming-of-age. This energy soon flourished further with the release of this year’s This Is Not A Love Song EP and it’s streaming hit Loud, produced with Robin Hannibal (Drake, Rhye, Anderson. Paak). Reeling from her performance of Drive (a collaboration with Black Coffee and the #1 most streamed domestic single on Spotify ever in South Africa) at the online Global Citizen concert, curated by Lady Gaga – Delilah then released singles Version Of Me, Loud and Us, all garnering critical acclaim from the likes of The Sunday Times Culture, i-D, The Independent, Wonderland, Numero, The Guardian and L’Officiel to name a few.

Influenced by the likes of Leonard Cohen, Phoebe Bridgers, Carole King, Arlo Parks, Lizzo, Bon Iver and St. Vincent, Delilah is taking a total departure from the melancholy, to “just fucking express yourself” on her latest project. Written and produced with Benjy Gibson, and featuring collaborations with Fred again… and guitarist Towa Bird, the ‘Baby’ EP will be the soundtrack to your post-lockdown freedom, as Delilah matures dramatically both as a songwriter and as a person.
