Ronnie Wood Shares Two New Singles

RONNIE WOOD SHARES TRACKS SHAME, SHAME, SHAME + ROLL AND RHUMBA

FROM THE RONNIE WOOD BAND MR LUCK, A TRIBUTE TO JIMMY REED: LIVE AT THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL SEPTEMBER 17TH 2021

PRE-ORDER THE ALBUM HERE

The Ronnie Wood Band today released two more tracks from the second installment of the live album trilogy – Mr. Luck – A Tribute to Jimmy Reed: Live at the Royal Albert Hall.

Ronnie and friends cover Jimmy Reed’s track Shame, Shame, Shame, originally released in 1963. Keeping true to Reed’s sound in their interpretation, the listener can sense their adoration for the late musician. The Rolling Stones previously included this song in their early setlists, along with others by one of their key influences Jimmy Reed. The B-Side of the Stones February 1964 UK hit single Not Fade Away is thought to have been a pastiche of Shame, Shame, Shame. Paul Weller features on the track, an incredible musician who shot to fame with The Jam and is colloquially known as The Modfather for his influence on the 80s Mod Revival. With its relatable lyrics and lively rhythm, this song has easy listening energy and has been covered many times before by a plethora of musicians.

The Ronnie Wood band also offers their high-energy interpretation of Reed’s instrumental song Roll and Rhumba, a perfect one for any true blues fan. Without the distraction of lyrics, the instruments take center stage and Wood’s incredible musicality comes to the fore.

Released by BMG on 17th September 2021, Mr. Luck – A Tribute to Jimmy Reed: Live at the Royal Albert Hall’ is the 18-track album featuring The Ronnie Wood Band including Mick Taylor with incredible special guests, Bobby Womack, Mick Hucknall, and Paul Weller and pays tribute to one of Ronnie’s musical heroes and major influences, the Mississippi electric blues pioneer Jimmy Reed.

The album is recorded live on a memorable night at the Royal Albert Hall on November 1, 2013. With unique album artwork specially created by Ronnie, Mr. Luck will be available digitally, on CD, as a vinyl release, and as a beautiful limited-edition dual-tone smoky blue vinyl.

A ‘Tayle’ of Two Sidemen

When self-taught guitarist Eddie Taylor imparted his skills onto his friend Jimmy Reed, he surely couldn’t have imagined the effect this was to have on the Chicago blues scene. Backing up such luminaries as John Lee Hooker, he is best remembered for his work with his former student.

Sweet coincidence, then, that in 1974 another Taylor, Mick, would make way for Ronnie Wood in the Rolling Stones, paving the way for these two friends and celebrated guitarists to work on projects ever since. The culmination of this to date is Taylor’s place in The Ronnie Wood Band at the Royal Albert Hall for 2013’s Bluesfest, where they played the now-legendary set that would come to birth to this recording.

In regard to Mr. Luck, Ronnie comments: Jimmy Reed was one of the premier influences on the Rolling Stones and all the bands that love American blues from that era until the present day. It is my honor to have the opportunity to celebrate his life and legacy with this tribute.

This album marks the second iteration in a trilogy of special and personal albums by Wood and the band, celebrating Ronnie’s musical heroes. The first album, Mad Lad explored the work of Chuck Berry as an emotional commemoration after Berry’s passing just over two years ago. Ronnie toured with Berry and was a lifelong fan.

Small Axe Official Soundtrack

London UK; Director Steve McQueen has teamed up with Motown Records UK for the official soundtrack to the landmark five-film anthology Small Axe.

Personally curated and selected by Steve McQueen, The Small Axe Official Soundtrack, featuring original score by award-winning composer Mica Levi, will be released on Record Store Day, Saturday 12 June.

Steve McQueen: “Music is an integral part of Small Axe, especially Lovers Rock. Selecting the songs was definitely one of the most fun parts of making the anthology series, so I’m really excited about the soundtrack release, especially the legendary tracks “Silly Games” and “To Be Young, Gifted And Black” performed by the brilliant Tiana Major 9 and Michael Kiwanuka.”

Mica Levi: “I am proud and thankful to be part of the music used in Steve McQueen’s telling of a too unknown true story. It goes to show that protest is an essential democratic right it can change legislation and create visibility and equality.

The Small Axe Official Soundtrack encompasses a potent combination of original tracks, film score excerpts, music featured in the series and four powerful spoken word pieces written by the renowned poet Linton Kwesi Johnson and performed by himself alongside cast members Sheyi Cole, Rochenda Sandall and Shaun Parkes. Exclusive tracks include a rendition of “To Be Young, Gifted And Black” by Michael Kiwanuka and a rework of Janet Kay’s classic “Silly Games” by R&B songstress and Motown US artist, Tiana Major9.

Tiana Major9: ‘Silly Games by Janet Kay played a huge part in changing a generation by pushing the culture forward, as well as making the dream of creating timeless Black British Art a reality. To see the stories based on the lives of my people on a global scale, means so much to me.”

The original of “Silly Games” by Janet Kay also features on the soundtrack alongside the likes of “Got To Give It Up” by Marvin Gaye, “Pressure Drop” by Toots & The Maytals and “More Warning” by King Tubby, Augustus Pablo & The Aggrovators.

The Small Axe Official Soundtrack will be accompanied by a limited edition vinyl release with artwork direction by phenomenal creative collective; Mabdulle, Tara Ung and Wwwesh Studio

Nominated in a record 15 categories at the TV Bafta Awards on the 6 June 2021, the Small Axe anthology series comprises five original films by Academy Award, BAFTA, and Golden Globe-winning filmmaker Steve McQueen (Hunger, Shame, 12 Years A Slave, Widows). Set from the late 1960s to the mid-1980s, the films each tell a different story involving London’s West Indian community, whose lives have been shaped by their own force of will, despite rampant racism and discrimination. Even though this collection of films is set some decades ago, the stories are as vital and timely today as they were for the West Indian community in London at the time. Small Axe is a celebration of Black joy, beauty, love, friendship, family, music and even food; each one, in its own unique way, conveys hard-won successes, bringing hope and optimism.

The music featured on the official soundtrack is integral to the DNA of these stories, both enhancing the narrative and paying homage to the musical and cultural heritage of the times documented in the series. The Small Axe Official Soundtrack, released by Motown Records UK on 12 June, is now available to pre-order https://smallaxe.lnk.to/PreOrder

Elle King: In Isolation

Multi-platinum and award-winning recording artist Elle King today announces the release of Elle King: In Isolation, a collection of raw demos/songs she’s recorded acoustically while quarantining at home in LA. She is working concurrently on her forthcoming third studio album for RCA Records.

This homegrown EP features three new songs “The Let Go,” co-written by Elle King with Daniel Omelio and Nick Long, “Over Easy” produced by Elle and co-written with Madi Diaz & Jessica Maros, and “The Only One,” written and produced by Elle King.

Click HERE to watch the “at home” performance video filmed in her living room for “The Let Go” that premiered on Rolling Stone.

Elle has recently experienced a massive streaming resurgence with her outrageously fun take on “My Neck My Back” featured in the Netflix film The Wrong Missy, and her most recent single “Baby Outlaw” is featured in the Charlize Theron-starring film The Old Guard released today, also on Netflix.

About Elle King:

Multi-platinum and award-winning recording artist Elle King has enjoyed over 1.2 billion streams worldwide. Her sophomore, critically acclaimed album Shake The Spirit was released in late 2018 and follows her debut album Love Stuff, a sultry, badass mix of rock and roll, blues, and country, with a twinge of pop. Love Stuff introduced the world to Elle King and featured her breakthrough single “Ex’s & Oh’s,” which earned her two GRAMMY nominations and was certified double platinum. Her breakthrough single hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs Chart and topped the AAA, Hot AC, and Alternative Radio charts, leading King to become the second female artist in 18 years to reach No. 1 at the latter format. Additionally, she’s collaborated with Dierks Bentley on “Different for Girls,” their #1 Country Airplay chart-topper and CMA Award-winning single for “Musical Event of the Year.”

Her lead single off of Shake The Spirit “Shame,” marked her fourth radio #1 single and led Elle to become the only act in history to have scored number 1 singles on the Adult Pop Songs, Adult Alternative Songs, Alternative Songs, and Country Airplay charts. Her follow up single “Baby Outlaw” achieved Top 15 charting at AAA Radio.

Rolling Stone wrote of her Austin City Limits live set: “Elle King is a little bit country, a little bit rock n’ roll, but ultimately, she’s punk as fuck.” Variety wrote of her Philadelphia Shake The Spirit tour date “…King churned the clotted cream of punkish country, raw R&B, crotchety rock and deep blues into rich, buttery musical drama with her band, The Brethren… (she) belted, crooned, purred, sauntered and swaggered her way through a tautly rocking set…one thing became very clear: nearly every song that came before (the finale) was equally contagious, catty-cool, and hit-worthy.”

Bilbao BBK Live brings together present, past and future in their latest line-up announcement, which features many of the biggest artists from the national and international scene. Taking place from 11 – 13 July 2019, acts including The Strokes, Suede, Brockhampton, Rosalía, Idles, Thom Yorke, Princess Nokia and Nils Frahm are amongst the new acts unveiled today for the forward-thinking Spanish festival.

Joining the already announced Weezer to kick off their global comeback in Bilbao is The Strokes, the New York City band credited with resurrecting rock in the early noughties, breathing new life into the genre and leaving their mark on countless groups to date. Catalan artist Rosalía also stars. The flamenco artist is one of the most relevant artist to emerge from the Spanish scene in many years, revolutionising the scene and picking up a Latin Grammy Award in the process.

Thom Yorke brings his ‘Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes’ tour to Bilbao. The Radiohead frontman will be joined by Nigel Godrich and video artist Tarik Barri to perform songs from a variety of his solo albums. Britpop pioneers Suede, now back with their eighth album The Blue Hour, are also set to bring their electrifying live show to the Kobetamendi Mountain in the heart of the Basque Country.

Other acts announced today include American rapper Vince Staples; musical collective Brockhampton; barrier-breaking Harlem rapper Princess Nokia; experimental Argentinian artist Nathy Peluso;  Ms Nina, one of the prime exponents of Spanish reggaeton and trap; and Mueveloreina who fuse trap with tropical sounds and powerful lyrics.

Bilbao BBK Live 2019 also presents Idles, undoubtedly one of the bands of the year who, with their latest record, have broken onto the international scene and firmly established themselves as the official successors of authentic British punk. Joining the revered Bristolians are fellow Brits Sleaford Mods, Slaves and Shame, along with Stockholm’s punk collective Viagra Boys.

Alongside all of this, Kobetamendi holds much more in store, from the return of John Grant, who since the breakup of The Czars has remained one of the best voices in American indie music, to The Voidz, the side-project of one Julian Casablancas, as well as prime proponents of international pop and indie-rock Cut Copy, Khruangbin and Jonathan Bree.

Fans of electronic music can also look forward to performances from Nils Frahm, whose soundscapes have once more topped every best-of-2018 list, Hot Chip, Modeselektor Live, Nicola Cruz, Omar Souleyman, The Blaze, Yaeji and Kero Kero Bonito.

Rounding off the hefty roster of national and local artists are Vetusta Morla, Pony Bravo, Calavento, Uniforms, Serrulla, Olatz Salvador, EraBatera and Belatz.

All of these and many more acts will be performing live at the festival on 11, 12 and 13 July 2019 atop the stunning Kobetamendi Mountain, elevating the musical experience with a unique and unparalleled concert space.
