ENHYPEN – DILLUSION : DILEMMA

Six months after wowing worldwide audiences with their 2nd Mini Album BORDER : CARNIVAL, your new K-pop destination ENHYPEN has made another splashing return with their 1st Studio Album DIMENSION : DILEMMA.

The rising authentic storytellers who expressed their complex yet sincere emotions experienced before and after crossing the border of debut with their ‘BORDER’ series, now come to realize that this world is even more multidimensional than they expected in their new ‘DIMENSION’ series.

DIMENSION : DILEMMA opens the doors to the new ‘DIMENSION’ series. After entering a multidimensional world, where many values collide, the septet face a dilemma, questioning their identity while realizing their desires for the first time. The album, however, captures their resolution to put this dilemma aside and dash forward to find a solution. Producers of HYBE’s labels led by “hitman” bang and Wonderkid, who have been with ENHYPEN from the very beginning, once again participated in the production of the band’s latest discography to magnify the musical quality of the album which consists of eight tracks: “Intro : Whiteout”, lead single “Tamed-Dashed,” “Upper Side Dreamin'”, “Just A Little Bit”, “Go Big or Go Home”, “Blockbuster feat. YEONJUN of TOMORROW X TOGETHER”, “Attention, please!”, and “Interlude: Question.”

The lead single “Tamed-Dashed” is a New Wave track reminiscent of the 80’s that calls into question a dilemma of choice: to be “tamed” by one’s desires, or to “dash” to find the answers to address one’s predicament. It depicts the vivid dilemma of the seven boys unable to decide which path to pursue between the paradoxical contradictions and conflict of their desires.

The music video for “Tamed-Dashed” raises curiosity from the start as it begins with NI-KI reaching out to grab a rugby ball on the ground. It continues with scenes of the septet dressed in uniforms exuding a sense of freedom as they hang out and toss a ball to one another. Against the backdrop of a school gym, field, and blue ocean, ENHYPEN show off their powerful, yet refreshing choreography to complete a perfectly synchronized performance that delivers a cool and refreshing feel. Throughout the music video, the members’ past selves dressed in different clothing continuously intersect with the present, and concludes with NI-KI eventually taking the ball from the ground.

Reactions to the return of the record-breaking K-pop prodigies were massive. The band trended on social media channels with the release of various album-related content and broke their own record with the new album surpassing 920,000 pre-order copies, proving their reputation as the new K-pop destination.

Following the release of DIMENSION : DILEMMA at 6 PM KST, ENHYPEN premiered the performance of their new song on Mnet’s Comeback Show at 7 PM KST.

About ENHYPEN

ENHYPEN is the first boy band created by BELIFT LAB, consisting of members JUNGWON, HEESEUNG, JAY, JAKE, SUNGHOON, SUNOO, and NI-KI. Inspired by the hyphen(-) that connects one word to another, ENHYPEN means that seven different boys connect to discover one another and grow together. The group has been smashing from day one since their debut on November 30, 2020 with their first mini album BORDER: DAY ONE. They have caught the attention of viewers worldwide with relatable music and energetic performances and have performed on global shows like MTV Fresh Out Live. The septet also took the “Rookie of The Year” title at four Korean award shows within two months of their debut, proving their reputation as the breakout boyband to watch out for. With the release of their sophomore album BORDER: CARNIVAL in April 2021, the one of a kind global rookies not only topped Japan’s Oricon Daily, Weekly, and Monthly Album Charts, but also peaked at #18 on the Billboard 200 and Artist 100 Charts respectively, solidifying their position as the new destination for K-pop fans everywhere.

Finn Askew – Tokyo

Finn Askew will release his debut EP, Tokyo, on November 5 via Capitol Records. As the pre-order for the six-track set launched, the 20-year-old UK artist shared the title track. Delivered in his signature thumping trap-rock style, “Tokyo” tells the story of a high maintenance, emotionally distant woman. Download/stream HERE. Watch this visualizer HERE.

“Like many of my songs, I came up with the title ‘Tokyo’ before I’d even written it,” explains Finn Askew. “The main lyric being ‘she’s in tokyo again’ ߝ in reality, I’m talking about a girl who’s disconnected from the world, she’s out of touch.”

Askew, a VEVO DSCVR Artist to Watch 2021, will be touring the UK with Mimi Webb this fall. He’ll play his first headline show on November 10 at London’s Courtyard Theatre. Fans who pre-order his new EP will instantly receive “Tokyo” plus the blistering trio of singles he’s released in recent months: “Adidas,” “Paranoia” and “Cherry Bomb.” See below for track listing.

“This EP is really delving into who I am as an artist,” says Askew, whose songs have amassed over 142 million combined global streams to date. “I feel like with the first EP I wanted to show people that I can really do any genre! You can’t really go back once you cement your sound. So this EP is the start of Finn Askew.”

Praise for “Adidas”

Including “Adidas” as one of its “R&B/Hip-Hop Fresh Picks,” Billboard said, “Finn Askew’s new, guitar-anchored song is super catchy, and that’s how he likes it.”Rolling Stone AU noted, “‘Adidas’ is a slick undertaking of smart pop-rock, with powerful guitar riffs and a hook-heavy chorus highlighting his musical versatility.” Acid Stag observed, “Finn Askew continues to show why he’s considered one of the most promising artists going around with his ridiculously catchy new single ‘Adidas.'” View the official video for “Adidas” HERE.

Elton John × Stevie Wonder – Finish Line

Elton John and Stevie Wonder have unveiled “Finish Line,” the latest song to be released from forthcoming album The Lockdown Sessions. Listen HERE. A collection of collaborations recorded remotely over the last 18 months, The Lockdown Sessions is a dazzlingly diverse array of 16 tracks that celebrate togetherness and sees Elton collaborating with an unparalleled range of artists only he could draw together. It will be released on October 22nd via Interscope Records and is available to pre-order HERE.

Just last week Elton unveiled the second track to be taken from ‘The Lockdown Sessions,’ “After All” with Charlie Puth. A classic, soulful ballad, the track showed a delicious counterpart to previous single, and burgeoning global hit, “Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)” with Dua Lipa. And now, with “Finish Line” Elton and Stevie Wonder have revealed another fully realized side to the multifaceted ‘The Lockdown Sessions.’ A stunning gospel infused track, with Stevie’s unmistakable vocals and trademark harmonica, the song features The Sunday Service Choir, Kanye West’s renowned Gospel Choir. Previous collaborations between the pair have included “I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues” (featuring Stevie on harmonica) and the Burt Bacharach and Carole Bayer Sager penned “That’s What Friends Are For” (a 1985 charity record also featuring Dionne Warwick and Gladys Knight), but “Finish Line” is the first time that these two undeniable greats of popular music have dueted together. The resulting track is well worth the wait, a timeless song worthy of either man’s oeuvre. 

“Finish Line” is produced by GRAMMY Award winner Andrew Watt. In line with the rich and varied sonic palette that makes up ‘The Lockdown Sessions,’ the creation of the track was equal parts kismet and hard work, born out of mutual artistic respect and a fifty-year friendship. Watch HERE as Elton and Andrew Watt discuss the making of “Finish Line” in a preview of this Saturday’s Rocket Hour, airing on Apple Music 1.

Speaking of the collaboration, Elton said: “I couldn’t be more proud of ‘Finish Line’: I’d go as far as to say it’s one of the best records I’ve ever made. Stevie’s voice is as good as I can ever remember hearing him – he sounds like a 17-year-old again, he’s singing with a sheer joy and exuberance in his vocals. Andrew Watt has done an unbelievable job on the production. It was a magical process. I’ve always loved collaborating with Stevie, and I’m delighted that after fifty years of friendship we finally get to do a full blown duet. He has always been so kind and sweet to me, and his talent is beyond ridiculous. When you listen to what he does vocally and instrumentally on ‘Finish Line’ you think, this is a true genius here.”

Stevie Wonder said: “It is both a joy and honor to sing, play piano and harmonica for Elton! He has truly been one of the great spirits of music, life, friendship and love, who I’ve met on this life journey! True artistry and music like love equals a forever commitment lasting many lifetimes. And Elton, anyone who hears your voice singing “Finish Line”, will hear and feel your wisdom, your pain, your soul, your love, but also your resilience…  I love it!! Congratulations to you and our forever and never, never-ending music, friendship, life-song! Long live Sir Elton John!!! (big smiley face!)”

In further Lockdown Sessions news, Elton and Charlie Puth appeared together on stage at the Global Citizen event in Paris last weekend to perform their duet “After All.” Watch HERE. This global charitable 24-hour event saw some of the world’s biggest artists and global leaders come together to defend the planet and defeat poverty. This is a part of Global Citizens campaign, a Recovery Plan for the World, which focuses on COVID-19, ending the hunger crisis, resuming learning for all, protecting the planet; and advancing equity for all.

Elton John – The Lockdown Sessions

Elton John has announced the forthcoming release of The Lockdown Sessions. An album of collaborations recorded remotely over the last 18 months, The Lockdown Sessions, will be released on October 22nd via Interscope Records.

Available to pre-order HERE

In March 2020 Elton was forced to pause his record breaking Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour due to the unfolding COVID pandemic. As the world began to shut down, different projects presented themselves with artists Elton had enjoyed getting to know through his Apple Music show Rocket Hour. This was the beginning of one of Elton’s boldest and most interesting records to date that he has billed ‘The Lockdown Sessions’. This album saw Elton coming full circle and returning to his roots as a session musician. While it was no easy feat recording during a pandemic, a completely new way of working for Elton, he leaned into the challenge with some magnificent results.

Kicking off with current single “Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)” with Dua Lipa, the album takes the listener on a heady journey through many different genres, all held together with expert finesse and understanding by one of the greatest champions of music of our time. Much more than a mere collaboration album, ‘The Lockdown Sessions’ is a dazzlingly diverse collection of 16 tracks with 10 brand new unreleased tracks that celebrates togetherness and sees Elton collaborating with an unparalleled range of artists only he could draw together. The enduring influence of his musical milestone with one of the most ambitious projects ever conceived. An unprecedented 20+ artists feature spanning an unbelievably vast range of genres, generations, cultures, continents and more, each contributing a unique style to the album that is sure to hold its place amongst one of pop and rock’s greatest songbooks. The Lockdown Sessions sees Elton collaborate with GRAMMY Award winning producer Andrew Watt on five of the tracks.

In Elton’s words: “The last thing I expected to do during lockdown was make an album. But, as the pandemic went on, one‐off projects kept cropping up. Some of the recording sessions had to be done remotely, via Zoom, which I’d obviously never done before. Some of the sessions were recorded under very stringent safety regulations: working with another artist, but separated by glass screens. But all the tracks I worked on were really interesting and diverse, stuff that was completely different to anything I’m known for, stuff that took me out of my comfort zone into completely new territory. And I realised there was something weirdly familiar about working like this. At the start of my career, in the late 60s, I worked as a session musician. Working with different artists during lockdown reminded me of that. I’d come full circle: I was a session musician again. And it was still a blast.”

An unparalleled career that has forever changed the cultural landscape, Elton John’s collaborations with Bernie Taupin and others continue to shape the cultural landscape, break records, top charts and win new fans across the generations. We’ve had the book, the film, the farewell tour, the fashion collections and the greatest hits. And now with The Lockdown Sessions available on digital formats, fans can enter Elton’s new world which is no doubt another fitting addition to his oeuvre.

As an actor, I’ve always sought to be consistently inconsistent with the masques I put on, and so I seek to follow suit with the music I make. In the same way a ‘role’ can be different from story to story, each piece of music should be treated like a different ‘part’ in a different play. Masquerade is a small collection of the variety of musical masques that have always inspired me. They might not always sound or feel the same, but they are inevitably and undeniably me behind each masque. And that’s the kind of eclecticism that not only makes for a successful masquerade ball- but what makes me, me.”

Billboard described “f*kn around” as “a slick alt-pop single built around a wiggly bass line.” MTV News praised, “With synthy distortions and a banging guitar loop, the song echoes the sharper edges of contemporaries like Shawn Mendes and Justin Timberlake’s with a theatrical flair fans have come to expect from Criss.” Darren made his late-night television performance debut with the single on The Late Late Show with James Corden alongside Este Haim of HAIM on bass, The Pocket Queen on drums, frequent collaborator and San Fermin frontwoman Charlene Kaye on guitar, and the track’s co-writer CJ Baran on keys.

Music has always played an integral role in Darren’s artistry. As a solo artist, his 2017 EP Homework debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Album chart. Criss has toured to sold-out audiences around the world including headlining the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Festival with multi-GRAMMY Award nominee and renowned DJ Steve Aoki. In 2019, he also headlined the Balmain Music Festival for the Balmain men’s spring 2020 show. He has been featured on the cover of numerous magazines including such music publications as Billboard and American Songwriter.

As a songwriter, Darren has penned songs for the comedy musical Royalties, for which he was also the creator and executive producer. He received his first Emmy nomination for songwriting in 2015 for Best Original Music and Lyrics for the song “This Time,” which appeared on Glee’s series finale. In addition to collaborations with fellow artists including Rufus Wainwright, Sabrina Carpenter, Bonnie McKee, Jordan Fisher, and many others, he has also written for Apple’s animated series Central Park.
