Arctic Lake – Breathe

English alternative pop duo Arctic Lake is back with the emotionally bare single “Breathe,” out now via Astralwerks. The slow-burning, gently driving song, produced by member Paul Holliman, comes with a fittingly evocative and intimate video. Listen to “Breathe” HERE and watch the video HERE.

“Breathe” finds vocalist Emma Foster pleading with a partner who’s closed off, she’s desperate for more connection, feeling suffocated by the relationship’s limitations. Shimmering synths slink around her voice as she asks, “Can I find what’s underneath, won’t you let me know you?” Eventually, a rush of vibrating electronics takes over, but not without her slipping in one more simple request: “I’m just wanting you to hold me.” The video for “Breathe” feels just as personal, with Foster front and center against a blood-red background, her soul-baring lyrics projected right on her face, exposing every vulnerability.

“Breathe” follows 2021’s electro-kissed single “Lonely,” Arctic Lake’s “steamiest track yet” according to House of Solo. The duo also recently built up a following with a handful of collaborations, like their ZHU team-up “Yours“, which peaked at #16 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, as well as the feel-good track, “House Music” with German DJ Boris Brejcha, and “Road” with producer Lane 8. But “Breathe” builds on Arctic Lake’s more minimalist, sultry soundscapes, which Tongue Tied Magazine describes as “breathtaking, electromagnetic anthems” that are “simply unmatched.”

Arctic Lake’s blend of emotional songwriting and inventive production has won the attention of fans and critics since they self-released their debut single, “Limits,” in 2015. Since then, their following has grown to over 1 million monthly listeners on Spotify. As they prepare more new music for 2022, Arctic Lake is ready to lure more listeners into their colorful world.

Jesse McCartney – Kiss The World Goodbye

Jesse McCartney reveals new single and video, Kiss the World Goodbye, as well as announces fall tour dates.

Today, multi-platinum recording artist, singer, songwriter, and actor Jesse McCartney released his new anthemic single and video for Kiss The World Goodbye off his upcoming sixth studio album New Stage, due out Fall 2021. Representing a new chapter in his life, New Stage is set to mark his first full-length album in seven years. The video for Kiss The World Goodbye premiered on McCartney’s YouTube page at midnight last night. Later this year, McCartney will embark on a 2021 tour, in support of the forthcoming album, with pre-sale tickets available for purchase starting later today. 

Inspired by his future wife, actress Katie Peterson, the single reflects their bond where they are ready to take on anything and everything. McCartney shares, “If this last year has taught us anything, it’s to hold our loved ones close. I hope my fans can overcome the fear and anxiety that has come with this pandemic, and if it helps, they can jump in the car with a friend or significant other, roll the windows down, blast this song, and just drive! This song is intended to inspire, even when you have the weight of the world on your shoulders. And when you have that special someone you can rely on, someone who can share in the good times and bad, it really gives you the sense that the two of you can take on anything.”

Kiss The World Goodbye is written by Jesse McCartney, Carah Faye (of Shiny Toy Guns and co-writer of Stay the Night performed by Zedd & Hayley Williams), and Morgan Taylor Reid (Grammy-nominated producer who has previously worked with Marshmello, Chromeo, Backstreet Boys, American Authors, MAX, etc.). The song follows last year’s singles Yours, an introspective look at the different roles he’s played throughout his life, and Friends, an homage to the people in one’s life who become chosen family.

Directed by brother & sister duo, Maxx & Madison, the music video is themed “us against the world,” and inspired by Bonnie & Clyde meets 1996’s Romeo & Juliet, co-starring McCartney’s fiancé Katie Peterson.

This November, McCartney is set to launch his tour in Austin, TX hitting over 20 cities before ending in Los Angeles. Pre-sale tickets go on sale today, July 21. General tickets go on sale starting July 23rd. There will also be VIP packages available for purchase. Additional details to come.

About Jesse McCartney

Since the start of his career, New York-born and Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, artist, and actor Jesse McCartney has built a catalog of instantly recognizable anthems and captivated audiences on the road and on-screen. His first three albums—the platinum-certified Beautiful Soul (2004), Right Where You Want Me (2006), and Departure (2008)—consecutively bowed in the Top 15 of the Billboard Top 200 with the singles Beautiful Soul minted Gold and Leavin’ certified Platinum. Plus, he collaborated with T-Pain on the cross-genre banger Body Language. Meanwhile, SPIN touted In Technicolor as among its “Top 20 Pop Albums of 2014.” Along the way, he performed in arenas alongside the likes of New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys in addition to packing global headline tours and hosting shows for both George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

A sought-after songwriter, he notably wrote the 4x Platinum GRAMMY® Award-nominated Bleeding Love for Leona Lewis. In 2018, the one-off single Better With You racked up over 30 million cumulative streams and paved the way for his fifth offering. Simultaneously, his acting credits grew to include everything from Chernobyl Diaries and Fear The Walking Dead to Alvin and the Chipmunks, and even voicing the character Roxas/Ventus in gamer favorite Kingdom Hearts. Now, he opens up more than ever on his sixth full-length album, due out later this year.

ZHU SHARES NEW SONG AND VIDEO, YOURS FEAT. ARCTIC LAKE

Track Is From His New Album, DREAMLAND 2021, Out This Friday Via Astralwerks

ZHU Returns To Stage With Six Sold-Out Shows At Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Pre-Save / Pre-Order DREAMLAND 2021 Here

Just days before the release of his new album, DREAMLAND 2021ZHU unveils the richly cinematic track, Yours, feat. Arctic LakeZHU’s pensive keyboards shift to a simmering rhythm as he and UK alt-pop artist Arctic Lake who recently joined him on the Astralwerks roster trade vocals,evoking the uneasy tension between love in the moment and the aching for love everlasting. Mitch Bell (THEY., Tame Impala), who served as guitarist/musical director for ZHU’s 2016 NEON CITY tour,adds searing guitar.The three artists wrote the track together. Listen HERE.

The official video, directed by Yan Bokhanovich and produced by Daniel Shapovalov, takes inspiration from the classic Alfred Hitchcock film Rear Window and further explores the voyeurism of ZHU’s ONLY video. From the recesses of ZHU’s mind, the plot unfolds as two girls begin dancing in an apartment. As other characters emerge from nearby streets and buildings, they become entranced, then obsessed with watching the girls. View Yours HERE.

Ahead of this Friday’s release of DREAMLAND 2021 on Astralwerks, fans can pre-save / pre-order the album and instantly receive Yours plusSky Is Crying ft. Yuna and ONLY, ZHU’s collaboration with Tinashe. See below for the full track listing.

Sky Is Crying has amassed over 3.2 million combined global streams since its release in late March. Billboard said, Zhu has always been a vessel for the dark and surreal, and Sky Is Crying meets an age of hope and despair with somber groove.View the animated official video for Sky Is Crying HERE. Upon the release of ONLY in 2020, Dancing Astronaut hailed the song as a blend of ominous undertones with an alluring edge while Stereogum praised the dark electronic pop track built around reverberating keyboard arpeggios and an increasingly frenetic thump. View the official video for ONLY HERE.

DREAMLAND 2021 was made at home during quarantine, but as ZHU crafted the new set’s grimy techno and sweaty house tracks, he imagined the record as the propulsive score to a world starting to spin back into motion. DREAMLAND 2021 is about looking forward and creating a version of the future we want to exist in, ZHU says.

ZHU will celebrate the album’s release during his six sold-out DREAMROCKS shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO in May. Hisunprecedented run at the legendary venue is one of the first major multi-night stands to take place since the COVID-19 pandemic shuttered live music venues around the world. He will also be performing at numerous 2021 festivals, including ARC, III Points and Outside Lands.
