!Festival Performance

When Paramore revealed they were recording together in January 2022 the response from music fans around the world was immediate and celebratory. In the time since the Grammy-winning, RIAA-certified multi-Platinum band released their last album, After Laughter– and Hayley Williams unveiled two lauded solo albums – Paramore have become more popular than ever. Over the last few years Paramore’s influence and popularity has snowballed, as the age of streaming organically propelled them into a position as one of the world’s biggest, most culturally compelling rock bands. For the band, who formed as teenagers in Tennessee, their 20 year trajectory has seen them grow from youthful outsiders to bone-fide pop culture icons, permeating the musical landscape by inspiring a new generation of musical talent. Their forthcoming sixth album, This Is Why – set for release on Atlantic Records on February 10th -is preceded by the title track, the most immediate radio hit of the band’s career to date.

Renowned for their arena-filling and festival-headlining performance prowess, the opportunity to see Paramore play their first theater shows in years created headline news. Their current run of intimate live dates sold out in minutes. The band are donating a portion of their ticket sales to organizations working in areas of essential community support, including Support & Feed.

That’s what The A.W.A.Y Festival is all about.” said, A.W.A.Y Festival Founder, Davido.

Maggie Rogers Shares New Album "Horses" via Capitol Records for use by 360 MAGAZINE

MAGGIE ROGERS – HORSES

After yesterday’s release of Horses from her forthcoming album, Surrender, Maggie Rogers returns today with the official video for the track. The GRAMMY Award-nominated producer/songwriter/performer shot the simple yet powerful visual in a field in upstate New York, accompanying herself on acoustic guitar and co-directing with Michael Scanlon. Kelly Jeffries, another frequent visual collaborator of Rogers, served as cinematographer. View Horses HERE. Download / stream the song HERE.

Rogers recalls, “We laughed a lot. Drank wine. Talked about UFOs and marveled as the crescent moon set along the fields. We had a loose plan, but mostly trusted our instincts and our collective taste. And we had a blast. The way making art should be (in my philosophy). Not about the result, but about the process.”

Set for release on July 29 via Capitol Records, Surrender is the follow-up to 2019 Heard It in a Past Life, which entered Billboard Top Album Sales chart at No. 1, landed her a nomination for Best New Artist, and went on to amass over one billion combined global streams. Rogers will launch Surrender with a performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, July 26.

Horses came in a burst of creative energy while she was recording at Peter Gabriel’s studio in the U.K.

Rogers says, There been only a few, rare times in my life when two songs have appeared in the same day. And only one time when three songs came at once. This was the case with Horses. I was at Real World Studios with my dearest collaborator, Kid Harpoon. On day one, I sat down at the piano and he sat down at the drums and Overdrive came pouring out. I knew immediately it would be the opening track of the record. We started day two with That’s Where I Am, caught I’ve Got A Friend after lunch, and came back for Horses after dinner and a glass or two of wine. Tom started playing guitar and immediately I started writing. I looked up to ask him what he thought and he simply said, keep going. I wondered if maybe it was time to call it a night and he simply said, keep going. When I finished the words, I suggested we record in the morning and he said, give it one take. That take is Horses. It’s a song about letting go. About wanting to feel free in a time where I felt an overwhelming amount of numbness. Sometimes I’m singing to a loved one, sometimes a friend. Sometimes I think I’m singing to myself. And I love that I can’t always tell the difference.

The song follows Want Want, which The New York Times praised for its intensity and crunchy guitar tones, going on to note, this tale of long-sublimated desire finally finds an explosive expression in its chorus: And I want you. V Magazine said, Want Want is a booming track, backed by a groovy drumline and Roger’s own powerful vocals.

Fans who pre-order the digital edition of Surrender will instantly receive Horses, Want Want, and That’s Where I Am, which SPIN chose as #1 on their list of the 30 Best Songs of 2022 (So Far). View the official video for That’s Where I Am, which features cameos by David Byrne, Quil Lemons, and Hamilton Leithauser, HERE.

After multiple sold-out headline tours and major festival performances in support of Heard It in a Past Life, Rogers retreated to the coast of Maine in early 2020 and completely cut herself off from the noise of the outside world. For months on end, she spent most of her time reading and resting and walking along the jagged cliffs, compelled by the fierce and unforgiving nature of the North Atlantic Ocean. Channeling the ocean’s unruly energy, she soon arrived at the controlled chaos and ecstatic physicality that would come to define Surrender. Over the course of 12 unfettered yet exactingly crafted tracks, Rogers fully captures the frenetic intensity of the last two years of her life, bringing her bracing honesty to stories of anger and peace and self-salvation, transcendence through sex and freedom through letting go.

Masked Wolf × Bring Me the Horizon

Platinum-certified recording artist Masked Wolf has shared his new genre-bending single “Fallout” featuring chart-topping, GRAMMY Award-nominated rock band Bring Me The Horizon. Masked Wolf and the group originally joined forces in the summer of 2021 to record the track, which is complete with the rapper’s skillful verses and a massive chorus spotlighting frontman Oli Sykes‘ powerful, uniquely-recognizable vocals. With its dark, cinematic vibe, the collaboration is heavily influenced by HVDES and features some of her vocals and production. Adding Wolf’s vocals to HVDES‘ contribution gives the track a deeper feel, creating a new world for Bring Me The Horizon to step into. The song also arrives following Bring Me The Horizon‘s recent collaborations with Ed Sheeran on “Bad Habits,” first performed live at the BRIT Awards, and Machine Gun Kelly on “maybe.” “Fallout” is available now on all streaming  platforms, along with a companion lyric video available HERE.

Of the new collaboration, Masked Wolf commented, “I haven’t done a collaboration that felt dark; I always felt that my brand had that edge of darkness to it, and I was waiting for the right opportunity to come along. When I heard ‘Fallout,’ it grabbed me straight away. The way I felt like I was meant to be in the rubble but could still be brought out, that’s the feeling it gave me.” He continued, “The way the song builds over time made me feel like there was nothing wrong with it at all. To me, it’s perfectly structured and gives me the emotions I love diving deeper into when writing songs.”

Last fall, Masked Wolf unveiled his debut 17-track mixtape Astronomical, highlighted by the Australian rapper’s RIAA Certified double-platinum smash “Astronaut In The Ocean” and standout track “Pandemonium.” “Astronaut In The Ocean” proved to be a phenomenon, hitting No. 1 in eight countries around the globe and amassing over one billion streams to date, not to mention becoming the eighth most-consumed song of 2021 and earning multiple nod’s on Variety‘s esteemed Hitmakers List. It spent 22 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 and climbed to the Top 10 at Top 40 Radio in the U.S. Meanwhile, the official music video has logged nearly 300 million views on YouTube alone.

Masked Wolf made his world television debut with an epic performance of “Astronaut In The Ocean” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon followed by his first, primetime television appearance of the song on The Voice and then on The Kelly Clarkson Show. He also delivered a stellar performance of “Pandemonium” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and most recently on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest.

About Masked Wolf

Transforming from a mild-mannered man by day into an unrestrained beast in the studio, Masked Wolf (aka, Harry Michael) has unassumingly established himself as a powerful, passionate and primal hip-hop force. After graduating from school, the Sydney, Australia native tirelessly worked in sales to fund recording. He even took out a loan to build a home studio as he cut hundreds of songs and logged thousands of hours in the lab. In 2018, he dropped his independent debut “Speed Racer.” It gathered millions of streams and turned heads across Australia. Following “Night Rider” and “Water Walkin,” he unveiled “Astronaut In The Ocean.” Awash in airy guitar, jagged 808s, neon keys, and deft wordplay, he submerged himself in honest lyricism, facing depression head-on. Re-released via Elektra Records in 2021, “Astronaut In The Ocean” has become a global phenomenon, amassing over one billion streams and hitting #1 in 8 countries around the world. 

About Bring Me The Horizon

BRIT and GRAMMY-nominated, multi-platinum-selling quintet Bring Me The Horizon is one of the most electrifying and successful rock bands to emerge from the UK. The group kicked off their post-human era in 2020 with the release of the first of four EPs aptly titled POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR. The critically acclaimed release debuted at Number 1 on the UK charts and was praised by NME for being “rooted in raw relevance for today and the cyber-punk energy of tomorrow.” In 2021, the band shared their hit single “DiE4u,” the most recent addition to the post-human collection. To support the release, the group embarked on a sold-out UK arena tour in September 2021 and are set to headline Reading & Leeds Festival in August 2022. Bring Me The Horizon has sold over 4 million albums globally to date, played sold-out shows in over 40 countries, including two sold-out nights at London’s O2 and one night at The Forum in Los Angeles, wowed a traditionally non-rock crowd at Glastonbury Festival in 2016 and 2018, and stole the show at high profile festivals across Europe all summer of 2019. They have now also amassed over 1 billion video views on YouTube. Bring Me The Horizon is made up of vocalist Oli Sykes, guitarist Lee Malia, bassist Matt Kean, drummer Mat Nicholls, and keyboardist Jordan Fish.

Normani inside 360 MAGAZINE for her fair song

Normani – Fair

Multi-platinum selling, chart topping recording artist Normani returns with the highly anticipated new single, “Fair”. On the HARV-produced track, bass pulsates like a heartbeat between soft keys as her voice echoes with raw feeling. Volleying between high register harmonies and an emotionally charged refrain, she gets confessional on the chorus, “Is it fair that you moved on, ’cause I swear that I haven’t.” “Fair” was co-written by Normani, Abby Keen, Bernard “HARV” Harvey and Felisha King Harvey.

Speaking about the new song, Normani reveals, “This song really captures me in one of my most vulnerable moments. Sharing this record makes me uncomfortable because you have never really seen me in this light. Definitely aware that you might feel like you don’t know much about me but that’s only because it’s what makes me feel protected. I am really forcing myself to let go here. This is huge for me and hopefully this piece of art resonates. Love is beautiful yet so so terrifying. I adore you guys to the moon and back.”

“Fair” is out everywhere now. Listen HERE.

To celebrate the release of “Fair” Normani performed the track live on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on NBC. Watch the performance HERE.

“Fair” serves as the follow-up to the critically-acclaimed “Wild Side” feat. Cardi B which dominated the charts following its release, hitting the No. 1 spot on Billboard‘s Hip-Hop/R&B Radio Chart. To date, “Wild Side” has amassed an impressive 325+ million streams globally.

“Wild Side” featuring Cardi B left the world captivated upon release with its jaw-dropping Tanu Muino-directed official music video, choreographed by the renowned Sean Bankhead, who also choreographed Normani’s “Motivation” video. An iconic visual ode to the late 90s-early 2000s, the video has received more than 100 million views to date, and showcases Normani‘s signature, sleek dance moves and her versatility with fashion, reminding all that she remains at the top of her game. Watch her breathtaking live performance at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards in New York City HERE.

Watch the official video for “Wild Side” featuring Cardi B HERE.

“Wild Side” follows Normani’s showstopping single “Motivation,” and her top 40 #1 smash hit collaboration “Love Lies” with Khalid, which helped win her iHeart Radio Music Award‘s “Titanium Award.” Her single “Waves” featuring 6lack earned Normani her first win as a solo artist at the MTV VMAs for “Best R&B Video.” She’s also garnered numerous nominations throughout the years from award shows such as Billboard Music Awards, Soul Train Music Awards, NAACP Image Awards, People’s Choice Awards and more. To date, Normani has racked up more than 5 billion global streams across her catalog.

Kae Tempest × Kevin Abstract – More Pressure

British spoken word artist, rapper, poet, novelist, and playwright Kae Tempest revealed their new single “More Pressure” with Kevin Abstract. The song is from their upcoming album The Line Is a Curve set for release on April 8th via American Recordings/Republic Records. It is the fourth album from the Lewisham-based artist and has been produced by long-term collaborator Dan Carey alongside executive production by Rick Rubin.

The Line Is a Curve follows Tempest’s widely adored 2019 album The Book of Traps & Lessons, which received praise from the likes of NPR, The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Guardian, and many more, and saw Kae perform live on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Late Night with Seth Meyers. Tempest and Abstract’s shared friend and collaborator Rick Rubin played The Book of Traps & Lessons in his studio, and they had reached out to Kae afterward to thank them for the inspiration, leading to the exciting collaboration on “More Pressure.” The Line Is A Curve also follows Tempest’s critically acclaimed 2021 play Paradise, which premiered at the National Theatre in London last year. 

About The Album

After the experience of touring The Book of Traps & Lessons around the U.S., U.K., and Europe, Tempest realized that they wanted The Line Is a Curve to be a communicative record. The concept manifested itself both in the contributions of other artists—including the aforementioned Kevin Abstract, Lianne La Havas, Grian Chatten of Fontaines DC, ássia, and Confucius MC—and during the recording process, when Tempest decided to do three vocal takes in one day, to three different generations of people; “a man of 78 who I’d never met, a woman of 29, the poet Bridget Minamore, who is a good friend of mine, and then to three young fans of 12, 15, and 16 who had responded to a social media post.”

Featuring artwork shot by renowned photographer Wolfgang Tillmans (Frank Oceans’ blond), the album is best described by Tempest themselves:

“‘The Line Is a Curve’ is about letting go. Of shame, anxiety, isolation, and falling instead into surrender. Embracing the cyclical nature of time, growth, love. This “letting go” can hopefully be felt across the record. In the musicality, the instrumentation, the lyricism, the delivery, the cover art. In the way it ends where it begins and begins where it ends. I knew I wanted my face on the sleeve. Throughout the duration of my creative life, I have been hungry for the spotlight and desperately uncomfortable in it. For the last couple of records, I wanted to disappear completely from the album covers, the videos, the front-facing aspects of this industry. A lot of that was about my shame but I masked it behind a genuine desire for my work to speak for itself, without me up front, commodifying what felt so rare to me and sacred. I was, at times, annoyed that in order to put the work out, I had to put myself out. But this time around, I understand it differently. I want people to feel welcomed into this record, by me, the person who made it, and I have let go of some of my airier concerns. I feel more grounded in what I’m trying to do, who I am as an artist and as a person and what I have to offer. I feel less shame in my body because I am not hiding from the world anymore. I wanted to show my face, and I dreamed of it being Wolfgang Tillmans who took the portrait.” 

About Kae Thompson

With four studio albums, a novel, their first work of non-fiction (On Connection), three plays, and five collections of poetry to their name, Kae Tempest has firmly established themselves as one of the most unique, thought-provoking, and critically acclaimed voices of their generation. With the release of The Line Is a Curve in 2022, that reputation is only set to grow exponentially.
