In support of the release, JULIA spoke with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 Radio’s New Music Daily Show
 
Offering another glimpse into what fans can expect from the upcoming album, “Love Is Weird,” weaves together airy production and soft acoustic guitar, while she delicately likens relationships to “Playing Operation trying to put me back together, before candidly admitting, “Love is weird. Don’t know how I wound up here…It shows up and disappears. This honest and hypnotic melody highlights her uncanny ability to tune into raw emotion and unfiltered lyricism, with her signature vocal tone and delivery.
 
The new song sets the stage for the release of her anxiously awaited full-length debut album, Not In Chronological Order, out on April 30, 2021.  Presenting a full 360-degree perspective on the critically acclaimed songstress, it examines every facet of her life emotionally and spiritually in a 10-song body of work that finds Julia piecing together the chapters of her life in one place work – pre-order Not In Chronological Order HERE.
 
“When I was looking at the tracklisting, it literally was not in chronological order of the events that it took place in my life,” she says. “The way that I saw the tracklisting in my head, a lot of the heartbreak came in the middle, and finding new love came at the end. That’s the arc of this album: I’m not bitter about love anymore. I know what functional love is like and being in love and being hesitant about that love because it feels so perfect.”
 
JULIA’S current single “All Your Exes” arrived at critical acclaim upon its release. Co-written with Grammy nominated singer and songwriter JP Saxe“All Your Exes,” Entertainment Weekly hailed it “a deliciously wicked delight,” with The New York Times praising it as “harsh, funny, sad and relatably petty.  FLOOD Magazine called it “a prime example of a vulnerable pop-punk banger,” while Billboard noted “Michaels has a tendency to throttle her listeners with her pen — and on the muscular, virtuosic “All Your Exes,” she makes sure that your attention is focused entirely on her seething jealousy.”  Meanwhile, V Magazine summarized, “There’s something to ditching fairytale notions of love that Julia Michaels fully gets as she returns to the front of the stage once again.”  
 
JULIA currently features on the cover of Euphoria Magazine where she talks more about the album HERE.

ABOUT TRIPPIE REDD:

One of the most versatile and creatively daring artists in hip-hop today, Trippie Redd makes music that’s both wildly experimental and massively appealing. Since delivering his debut mixtape A Love Letter to You in 2017, the platinum-selling rapper/singer/songwriter has continually defied genre boundaries, embedding his melodic take on rap with frenetic elements of rock-and-roll and heavy metal.

Born Michael Lamar White IV and raised in Canton, Ohio, Trippie grew up on hip-hop icons like Tupac Shakur, Nas, and Jay-Z, but later became fascinated with the shock-rock of Slipknot, Rob Zombie, and fellow Canton native Marilyn Manson. Drawing much of his inspiration from the free-flowing style and inventive lyricism of Lil Wayne, Trippie began recording in his cousin’s basement following the death of his brother and later relocated to Atlanta to further hone his skills, quickly landing a record deal with 10K Projects.

The fourth installment of his signature Love Letter to You series became his first-ever album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Released in November 2019, the 21-track effort amassed over 125.9 million streams in its first week alone.

With the coronavirus pandemic forcing artists to improvise, Trippie still made the best of navigating 2020’s uncertain terrain. Outside of recording at his home studio and redecorating his Los Angeles mansion, the 2018 XXL Freshman made it a point to give back to those fighting the COVID-19 pandemic on the frontlines. Trippie partnered with Purity Organic and Sweet Leaf Tea in March to donate more than 32,000 beverages to hospital workers across his hometown of Canton (Mercy), NYC (Northwell Medical), and Los Angeles (Cedars Sinai, UCLA).

His Hollywood acting debut also came in April with a cameo during an episode of Lil Dicky’s critically acclaimed DAVE. The FXX show averaged over 5.3 million viewers per episode in season one and quickly became FX Network’s most popular comedy series.

Trippie caps off the year with the release of his highly anticipated Pegasus album on Halloween. The mythical LP includes previously released singles such as the intoxicating Excitement featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR and Trippie bridging the generational gap with the legendary Busta Rhymes on I Got You. The Dark Knight Dummo rapper adds to his myriad of high-profile collaborations on Pegasus by connecting with Chris Brown, Young Thug, Swae Lee, Lil Wayne and Future among others.

Trippie Redd – Sleepy Hollow

Singer/rapper Trippie Redd released a brand new single Wednesday titled “Sleepy Hollow.”

His upcoming album “Pegasus” will be available Oct. 30, but Zane Lowe premiered the new song on his Apple Music 1 show.

The track is produced by OUTTATOWN, who has worked with Future, Young Thug and DaBaby.

It clocks in at just one minute and 41 seconds, but the energy Trippie Redd brings to the song is undeniable.

“Pegasus” follows up Trippie Redd’s 2019 album “A Love Letter To You 4.” This is the third song to be released from “Pegasus” after “Excitement” and “I Got You.” The 26-song album will feature hit artists like Chris Brown, Future, Young Thug, Quavo, Lil Wayne, Swae Lee and more.

The Avalanches New Album

The Avalanches announced a release date Monday for their latest album titled “We Will Always Love You.”

The new album will release on Dec. 11 and explores the vibrational relationship between light, sound and spirit and examines the human voice.

The announcement is accompanied by two brand new songs from the group. The first is titled “Music Makes Me High” while the second is titled “Take Care In Your Dreaming” and features Denzel Curry, Tricky and Sampa The Great.

The Avalanches have had a busy year already, collaborating with Blood OrangeRivers Cuomo, Pink Siifu, Jamie xx, Neneh Cherry, CLYPSO, Sananda Maitreya and Vashti Bunyan. They also plan to announce more collaborations in the coming months.

“Take Care In Your Dreaming” is about dreams that go unrealized and the unexpected twists and turns of life. It played Monday on Zane Lowe‘s Apple Music show.

“Music Makes Me High” uses the unlikely pair techno-funk music and a gospel choir to immerse listeners completely into the upbeat track.

Though the two songs don’t come with music videos, they do come with “visualizers.” You can see the visualizer for “Take Care In Your Dreaming” by clicking right here the for “Music Makes Me High” by clicking right here.

Isaac Dunbar × Vevo DSCVR

Vevo announces the release of Isaac Dunbar’s DSCVR at Home performance of “boy” 

Isaac Dunbar knows full well that when you sign up to be a pop artist these days, you sign up to be an influencer. At only 17, Isaac has thought a lot about what he wants to put out into that culture and the impact it can have. He has thought a lot about how he wants listeners to feel; Isaac mainly wants his fans to know they are not alone in the same way listening to artists like Lady Gaga did for him growing up as a mixed race and artistic kid.

Isaac has gravitated toward music to soothe himself ever since he was a child. Growing up in the town of Barnstable on Cape Cod, Dunbar was bullied for being different. “I never fit in,” he says. “I tried, but it didn’t work. So when other kids were hanging out with each other, I was nine years old and cocooned in my bed scouring the Internet for new music.” Always having a love of singing, he taught himself to play piano from YouTube tutorials. At 10 years old, Isaac noticed that Lady Gaga had tweeted a list of producers she worked with, one of whom was French house producer Madeon. “I saw that he had this program called FL Studio,” he recalls. “I illegally downloaded it at a Barnes & Noble in Hyannis, Massachusetts. And that’s how I taught myself to produce music.”   

At 12, Dunbar began to release his self-proclaimed “self-aware alternative-pop,” and quickly began building an audience. Since then, Dunbar has signed to RCA Records and relished Zane Lowe premiering his song “Pharmacy” on his Beats 1 show. Billboard referred to him as a “newly christened pop star” and applauded his “vulnerable bravery and artistic honesty” on his label debut, Isaac’s Insects. The “verifiable wunderkind” (PAPER), has earned additional praise from the likes of The FADER and Ones to Watch, and has toured the US, Europe and the UK supporting girl in red.   

Vevo DSCVR focuses on the development of emerging artists, through performance content and careful curation. Vevo has a long history of helping emerging artists break through to new and wider audiences. Past alumnae of Vevo’s DSCVR series include Billie Eilish, dodie and Kiana Ledé. Vevo is committed to working with artists at an early stage of their career to create unique content that brings their music to life visually and provides exposure to new audiences through the platform. In addition to Vevo DSCVR, “boy” is now streaming on all platforms.

DJ SNAKE RELEASES “ENZO”

DJ SNAKE RELEASES NEW TRACK “ENZO” FT. OFFSET, 21 SAVAGE, GUCCI MANE & SHECK WES

DJ Snake has shared his new single “Enzo,” a powerhouse hip-hop anthem featuring Offset, 21 Savage, Gucci Mane, and Sheck Wes. Released via Geffen Records, “Enzo” premiered today as Zane Lowe’s latest World Record on Apple Music’s Beats 1.

Listen to “Enzo” by DJ Snake ft. Offset, 21 Savage, Gucci Mane, and Sheck Wes HERE.

Revealing DJ Snake’s deep roots in hip-hop and its enduring influence on his music today, “Enzo” features some of the genre’s most vital artists: Offset (of the platinum-selling, Grammy Award-nominated trio Migos), 21 Savage (whose critically acclaimed 2018 album i am > i was debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200), Gucci Mane (the trap pioneer and founder of 1017 Records), and Sheck Wes (a 20-year-old songwriter/rapper from Harlem known for his triple-platinum breakthrough single “Mo Bamba”). With its menacing beat and undeniable hook, the hard-hitting but hypnotic track also showcases DJ Snake’s boundary-warping ingenuity as a producer.

Last Friday night, DJ Snake teased “Enzo” as part of his explosive set at Coachella Weekend 2. During Weekend 1 of the festival, DJ Snake delivered one of Coachella 2019’s most-talked-about and instantly iconic moments by bringing Cardi B, Ozuna, and Selena Gomez onstage for the first-ever live performance of their massive hit song “Taki Taki.” The second global #1 record for DJ Snake — his first being “Lean On” ft. MØ, a 2015 collaboration with Major Lazer — “Taki Taki” premiered last September, and quickly became the ninth-fastest music video of all time to hit 100 million views on YouTube.

DJ Snake will be in Las Vegas this week for the Latin Billboard Awards, where he has five nominations including Crossover Artist of the Year, Producer of the Year, and Hot Latin Song of the Year for “Taki Taki” (with Selena Gomez, Ozuna & Cardi B). Catch DJ Snake performing at many of the world’s biggest festivals this spring and summer.
