City Morgue New Video

New York, NY (May 20, 2020) – Following the release of CITY MORGUE VOL 2: AS GOOD AS DEAD DELUXE, Hikari-Ultra/Republic Records duo City Morgue releases today their new video “THE FALL BEFORE THE GIVE UP” feat. Clever.

Drifting like dark angels through a beautiful nightmare, City Morgue says their last goodbyes to the struggles plaguing their life. As SosMula lies awake in a casket confronting battles with PTSD and the need for therapy, ZillaKami growls through the chorus about being hopeless; effortlessly melding the worlds of rock and rap. At the end of the video directed by Karltin Bankz, Post Malone’s up and coming artist Clever injects his beautifully sung vocals that contrast with City Morgues gruff melodies.

“THE FALL BEFORE THE GIVE UP” feat. Clever is a highlight from the four new tracks added to the Deluxe album. Executive produced by the legendary Mike Dean, the original album CITY MORGUE VOL 2: AS GOOD AS DEAD had immense success with over 70 million streams becoming the #1 rock album upon release, debuting at number one on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart and in the top 20 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart.

Additionally, last week City Morgue launched the next installment of their cult-favorite merch collection with hoodies, t-shirts, and face masks available HERE. 100% of the proceeds from their face masks are being donated to MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.

The melding of Rock and Rap is a concept that’s existed within the underbelly of music for decades, yet few have done what City Morgue is doing. When upstarts SosMula and ZillaKami come together, their fusion is seamless—oozing true skill with a reckless lack of fucks left to give. On the supergroup’s debut mixtape City Morgue Vol. 1: Hell or High Water, the dynamic duo delivered a new and exciting vibe for any fan of true music—from hip-hop to metal and continued this movement on their second album CITY MORGUE VOL 2: AS GOOD AS DEAD. Their music is an experience anyone can appreciate and shows what happens when two worlds meet to form an entirely new planet. The Hikari-Ultra/Republic Records signees have already shown a significant track record of hits in a relatively short amount of time, and it won’t stop there. The duo also dominates the merch scene, with countless sold out exclusive collections. The duo teamed up with famed illustrator Mark Riddick and creative director Joe Perez for merch that sold out in 24 hours. Additionally, they partnered with Bravado for merch that sold out in three days and also collaborated with A$AP Bari’s VLONE to create t-shirts, sweatshirts, bandanas and more that sold out in 72 hours.

Young Thug Wins “Song of the Year”

Young Thug won his first GRAMMY for “Song of the Year” – one of the awards top honors- at the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards, for his songwriting work on Childish Gambino’s “This is America”.

Released in May last year, the song and it’s accompanying visual quickly went viral, with subject matter that touches on gun violence, racism and discrimination within America. The song has racked up nearly 500 million views on YouTube, and makes history as the first rap song to ever win the award.

“This is America” was nominated alongside other hits like Drake’s “God’s Plan”, Ella Mai’s “Boo’d Up”, Black Panther single, “All The Stars”, Shawn Mendes’ “In My Blood”, “The Joke” by Brandi Carlile, A Star Was Born’s “Shallow,” and Zedd’s “The Middle.”

Young Thug also performed alongside Camila Cabello at the ceremony, performing their record breaking song, “Havana” for the broadcast’s cold open. The song, which hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts, was also nominated for a GRAMMY for “Best Pop Solo Performance.” The live performance also included appearances from Jay Balvin, Ricky Martin and Arturo Sandoval.

“Performing on the GRAMMY stage was such an honor.” – Young Thug

Young Thug also walked the carpet at the event, spending time with Bebe Rexha and interviewing with GRAMMY winning rapper, Eve for CBS.

Elton John today announces the forthcoming release of ‘Diamonds.’ Released on November 10th through UMe, ‘Diamonds’ is the ultimate greatest hits collection from Elton John and will be available on 1CD, 2CD, 3CD limited edition boxset, 2LP heavy-weight gatefold vinyl and digital formats.

Kicking off with the ever-stunning ‘Your Song,’ this definitive collection brings together all the landmark hits of one of the greatest song books of all time, including ‘Tiny Dancer,’ ‘Rocket Man (I Think It’s Going To Be A Long, Long Time),’ ‘Candle In The Wind,’ ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,’ ‘Sacrifice,’ ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight.’

Diamonds’ coincides with the 50th anniversary of Elton’s phenomenal song writing partnership with Bernie Taupin. Meeting in 1967 through a music magazine advert seeking songwriters, Elton and Bernie went on to become one of the most enduring song writing duos of all time, achieving a sustained level of success that puts them head and shoulders above the competition. Catapulted into the limelight as a song writing force in 1971 with ‘Your Song,’ the duo never stood still creatively, defining an era with their run of back-to-back classic 1970’s albums. While ‘Candle In The Wind’ topped the charts in three different decades and 2016’s critically acclaimed ‘Wonderful, Crazy, Night’ was a top ten hit in the US, their legacy is one that is unrivalled in terms of longevity, creativity and commercial success.

Speaking about their relationship, Elton says: ‘We are at 50 years, and our relationship is healthier than it’s ever been. There have been times in our relationship when we’ve written with other people, but it still didn’t stop the love. I love Bernie more than I’ve ever done and I think he probably feels the same way about me, because we’ve both led separate lives; we both write in separate rooms. We have an amazing respect and love for each other that’s only grown.’

Bernie Taupin says: ‘We still get a kick out of what we do; it’s what we do – when we come together and write something, it still has that magical quality to it – it doesn’t get any better than that. That feeling hasn’t aged.’

Available in the US to pre-order now on four physical formats (plus digital formats), the 1CD version of ‘Diamonds’ contains 17 songs, the 2CD version of ‘Diamonds’ contains 34 songs, a 10-page booklet with contemporary illustrations of iconic Elton looks, while the 2LP version is pressed onto heavy-weight 180 gram vinyl and contains gatefold artwork. Housed in an attractive lidded box, the 3CD limited edition boxset version of ‘Diamonds’ also contains a 72-page hardback book containing annotations for the stories behind each track plus a set of five postcards of illustrations of Elton. As well as a collection of some of the best loved songs of all time, all illustrations in these four formats are by contemporary artist Richard Kilroy.

The announcement of this definitive package comes at a time when Elton’s enduring legacy and relevance across the worlds of music, fashion and entertainment continues to burn as brightly as ever. Just last week Gucci unveiled their Spring Summer 2018 collection designed by Alessandro Michele and inspired by Elton’s inimitable style, referencing original items taken from the style icon’s archives. Elton also attended the world premiere of global box office number one sensation Kingsman: The Golden Circle, a film in which he appears as himself in a critically lauded, hilariously tongue-in-cheek role. Kingsman: The Golden Circle also features some of the classic tracks which can be found on ‘Diamonds,’ including ‘Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting.)’

An unparalleled career that has forever changed the cultural landscape, Elton John and Bernie Taupin’s music continues to fill stadiums, top charts and win new fans across the generations.
