“One of the most exciting girl groups right now” – NYLON

“I wasn’t ever sure that I loved you, but I was always sure you would let me down,” the group sings defiantly over squiggly synths and spicy percussion. “I wasn’t ever sure if I’d trust you, but I’m so goddamn sure my energy is just too precious to waste.” KARINA, GISELLE, WINTER and NINGNING then drive the point home on the instantly catchy chorus: “I got better things to do with my time.” With its relatable message and summery sound, “Better Things” has all the ingredients of a crossover hit.

The group’s momentum can be traced back to 2022 when they made their U.S. festival debut at Coachella, delivered their first official late night U.S. TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and kicked off Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series in Central Park. aespa then celebrated the release of Girls – The 2nd Mini Album which also debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart with the New York Times dubbing it “one of the year’s most impressive K-Pop releases precisely because of its dual mastery of the intricate and the elegant.”

BIRDY RELEASES NEW ALBUM ‘PORTRAITS’ – OUT NOW

“…irresistibly melodic 80s nostalgia trip”The Guardian, 4/5

“…a sweeping and dramatic record”The i, 4/5

“…a fabulous alt-pop work”The Times

“Portraits inhabits its own glistening world of crystalline reflections and shimmering melody”Metro

“Birdy’s Portraits is her most emotive, explorative album to date”The Line Of Best Fit, 8/10

“…you can hear Birdy elevate from a singer-songwriter into a true artist” – Gigwise, 8/10

“Birdy paints a lovely portrait on album five”The Rodeo

“Portraits demonstrates a distinctive and remarkable talent.”The Upcoming, 5/5

“…brilliant”The Sun, 4/5

Today – 18th August 2023 – Birdy releases her sensational new album, Portraits, out via Warner Music. On the album, Birdy embarks upon a musical renaissance, shifting away from her customary stripped-back motifs and stepping into a world laden with polished and gleaming alt-pop aesthetics.

Portraits is Birdy’s most confident album yet as she takes a liberated leap into the unknown, her timeless songwriting style now infused with a fresh, exuberant rush of energy and inventive, off-kilter production flourishes. It’s the sound of a creative stepping into a new world and thrillingly, finding her true voice.

Speaking about Portraits, Birdy said: “After five years making my previous record, which was quite emotionally intense, Portraits was born from the ashes with a brooding urgency I’d not felt before. Naturally I sought to make something that reflected the surge of energy inside me, I was excited by a mixture of synthetic and acoustic sounds and found a lot of freedom and joy venturing into a new sonic universe that I used to think I could never exist in authentically. The album is full of movement and themes of fantasy, a moment of truth, the inner child and perfectionism to the point of heartbreak.”

On Wednesday 23rd August, Birdy will play what is set to be an incredible, sold-out launch show in London at Earth.

In 2023, Birdy is back with her new studio album ‘Portraits’ – a new chapter and confident change in direction for an artist who has achieved an unbelievable amount since releasing her debut album, Birdy. At just 26 years old, Birdy has solidified herself as one of the UKs leading homegrown talents, her incredible achievements to date include 3 top 5 albums and countless Platinum and Gold discs, marking sales in excess of 8 million records globally. Whether featuring on blockbuster soundtracks for the likes of Pixar, Netflix and Amazon, collaborating with leading artists across music genres or motivating a generation with a viral Tik Tok sound, Birdy is forever finding new ways to engage new audiences. On streaming services, Birdy’s committed fanbase have surpassed an incredible 5 billion streams, totalling at over 18 million followers across all services. Birdy continues to be an unmissable draw in the live arena too, her rich, multi-layered stage productions have seen her sell out three consecutive nights at The Sydney Opera House, play to over 10,000 people over two nights at London’s Eventim Apollo, plus many more on global world tours. She has also headlined many festivals across Europe and Asia, has proudly performed at Glastonbury Festival, while in the process earning both BRIT and Grammy nominations.

A euphoric, standout moment from Fred’s Glastonbury set, ‘adore u’ – a track dedicated to Fred’s sister that samples heartfelt lyrics lifted from Obongjayar’s 2022 debut album, ‘Some Nights I Dream Of Doors’ – lands as Fred’s first new music of the summer, with more on the horizon soon.

He kickstarted the year with the release of ‘Rumble’ in January – crowning moment of his unforgettable Boiler Room debut last summer – alongside Skrillex and veteran grime MC, Flowdan.

After playing a series of pop-up shows in London alongside Skrillex and Four Tet later that month, the trio then went onto sell-out the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York in February – over 19,000 tickets were sold in less than 10 minutes – and later headline the final night of Coachella, playing to over 125,000 people and an additional 3 million who have since re-watched their set on YouTube.

Elsewhere in 2023, Fred also recorded a special Tiny Desk Concert for NPR in April, which saw him relearn the marimba, play a vibraphone, sit at a piano and loop beats on his laptop simultaneously, while in May, he joined forces with Brian Eno on ‘Secret Life’ – a surprise-drop 13 track ambient album released on Four Tet’s Text Records imprint.
If that wasn’t enough, Fred’s critically-acclaimed Glastonbury debut in June saw him pull one of the largest crowds in the Other Stage’s history – a career-defining moment only compounded by the news that ‘Actual Life 3’ has been shortlisted for the 2023 Mercury Prize.

BEBE REXHA AND DAVID GUETTA REUNITE FOR EUPHORIC NEW SINGLE “ONE IN A MILLION”

BEBE REXHA AND DAVID GUETTA REUNITE FOR EUPHORIC NEW SINGLE “ONE IN A MILLION”
FOLLOWS GRAMMY-NOMINATED HIT COLLABORATION “I’M GOOD (BLUE)”

August 4, 2023 (Los Angeles, CA) – Today, multi-platinum hitmakers Bebe Rexha and David Guetta join forces — once again — for the soaring club-pop anthem “One in a Million.” Listen HERE via Warner Records. It follows their Grammy-nominated global chart-topper “I’m Good (Blue).”

“You’re my one, one, one in a million, it’s like someone picked you out of the sky,” Rexha sings over sparkling piano and cascading synths. Soon, the track builds to an explosive crescendo that harkens back to house music in its purest form — exhilarating beats, powerful vocals, and buoyant, overflowing melodies.

“One in a Million” is Rexha’s first new release since dropping her acclaimed third album Bebe, which includes fan-favorite collaborations “Satellite” featuring Snoop Dogg and “Seasons” featuring Dolly Parton. She recently wrapped up her North American Best F*n Night Of My Life Tour and is currently playing a series of dates across Europe. On September 22nd, she will take the stage at Life Is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas.

This spring, Guetta unleashed global hit “Baby Don’t Hurt Me” with Anne-Marie and Coi Leray—a reinvention of the 1993 Haddaway hit “What Is Love”—which is currently top 15 at Top 40 radio. Last week, the French producer dropped the addictive anthem “Something To Hold On To” with MORTEN. With over 40 billion global streams and ‘Producer of the Year’ honors at both the BRIT and NRJ Awards, Guetta has now rocketed to the fourth most streamed artist on Spotify globally.

As for Rexha, she’s been churning out smashes of her own including multi-platinum G-Eazy collaboration “Me, Myself & I” and Martin Garrix-produced club sensation “In The Name Of Love.” In 2017, she struck chart gold with “Meant To Be,” a country duet with Florida Georgia Line that was certified Diamond for selling 10 million copies. After winding up her North American tour, she’s currently playing a series of dates across Europe.

With “One in a Million” Rexha and Guetta have done it again, delivering a shimmering summer smash with a sweet, big-hearted message.

Today, Anne-Marie releases her new album UNHEALTHY (listen here).
Signed Albums are available here.

Pulling from all parts of her life, Anne-Marie’s new album UNHEALTHY offers us a sneak peek into her perfectly imperfect world. Penned over a period when she felt ready to revisit and try and make sense of a host of raw, past relationships whilst also learning to process positive new ones, the new album takes us on a journey from chaos to contentment; this is Anne-Marie standing tall, embracing an all-new version of herself that’s fiercer, bolder, more chaotic and blissfully happier than ever before.

Bridging topics of sadness, anger, joy, rebellion, and euphoria, UNHEALTHY is Anne-Marie living out her highs and lows on her own terms. Over the album’s thirteen tracks, gutsy, empowerment anthems (‘Trainwreck’, ‘Grudge’) run alongside tender, vulnerable streaks (‘KILLS ME TO LOVE YOU, ‘YOU & I’), guitar-fuelled angst (‘HAUNT YOU’) and musical theatre references – Anne-Marie starred in Les Misérables as a child – as she channels ‘I’d Do Anything’ from Oliver (‘OBSESSED’). Written and recorded alongside Kamille, McDonough Brothers, BillenTed, Evan Blair, and Nami, the album includes features from Aitch (‘Psycho’) and Khalid (‘You & I’).

Ahead of the album’s release, Anne-Marie dropped three tracks – her UK Top 10 ‘PYSCHO’ feat. Aitch, ‘UNHEALTHY’ feat. Shania Twain and ‘TRAINWRECK’.
