DUA SET FOR DOUBLE DUTY AS HOST AND MUSICAL GUEST ON MAY 4TH EPISODE OF SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE

Radical Optimism Album Artwork

3x GRAMMY and 7x BRIT Award-winning global pop powerhouse Dua Lipa has released her highly anticipated third album, Radical Optimism. The album features 11 songs including the thumping, rave-up “Illusion,” “Training Season,” and euphoric club-ready “Houdini.” You can listen to Radical Optimism here.

“I wrote this album during my singledom,” Dua says. “I always came into the studio with some funny story, and they all inspired different songs. There’s a looseness and an honesty that I hadn’t had before.”

In making the album, Dua worked with a team of core collaborators including Caroline Ailin, Danny L. Harle, Tobias Jesso Jr. and Kevin Parker.

Dua adds, “Everybody’s backgrounds and ways of working all gelled so well, as friends and musically.” She continues, “We were just so open with each other, and I felt like in that room, I could be vulnerable and talk freely about my experiences. The musicality of it felt so rich and exciting, and I wanted to dive in and be a part of that.”

Dua describes Radical Optimism as “psychedelic pop” noting that “there are musical breaks and a mix of different sounds, and when you listen to it with your eyes closed, it opens up a very visual world.” The album was inspired by Dua’s own self-discovery and speaks to the pure joy and happiness of having clarity in situations that once seemed impossible to face.

Rolling Stone has called the album “pop bliss,” while highlighting it is “uniquely and utterly Dua Lipa: confident dance pop full of witty Instagram-caption-ready one-liners.”

This Saturday, May 4th, Dua will returned to Saturday Night Live where she did double duty as both host and musical guest for the night. Dua was last on SNL in 2020 when she performed “Don’t Start Now,” “Levitating” and made her sketch debut as Marjorie.

Dua recently announced the first run of tour dates in support of Radical Optimism with shows in Berlin, Pula, and Nimes taking place in June, which sold out immediately. In addition, Dua will make her Pyramid Stage debut as the Friday night headliner at this year’s Glastonbury Festival on June 28th and will play a show at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall on October 17th, the latter of which also sold out immediately.

ED SHEERAN PHOTOGRAPHED BY BEN WATTS, 2014

Ed Sheeran has announced details of a special anniversary edition of his seminal album ‘x’, set for release on 21 June – 10 years to the date of its original release. The record will be available on multiple formats including an EcoRecord; a new, more ecologically sustainable LP format (pre-order formats here). To celebrate the milestone, Sheeran has announced a one-off show at New York’s Barclays Center that’ll take place on 22 May, with the setlist reflecting his ‘x (Wembley Edition)’ release from 2015. To help get tickets into the hands of fans, Ed Sheeran is partnering with Seated for the exclusive fan on-sale (register here to be in with a chance of being selected for the opportunity to purchase tickets.) Registration opened today, May 1st at 9am ET and will close on Thursday, May 2nd at 11:59pm ET. The exclusive, general on-sale, powered by Seated, will begin for the selected fans on Monday, May 6th at 10am ET via Ticketmaster.

‘x’ – Sheeran’s second album, released in 2014 – was the catalyst behind his global ascent. An LP that has now exceeded 22 million global sales, it generated the smash hits “Don’t”, “Sing”, “Photograph”, “Bloodstream”, and “Thinking Out Loud”. Outside of the original tracklisting, nine bonus tracks will feature on the individual formats of the anniversary editions, all of which have never been released on vinyl – these include “I See Fire” and “All of the Stars” taken from movie blockbusters, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Fault In Our Stars respectively.

 

Ed Sheeran is an era-defining artist, who has sold over 180 million records across the globe. Most recently, he took his record-breaking Mathematics Tour to South East Asia, UEA and India, where he invited local artists to perform with him each night, and even learned Mandarin and Punjabi for special collaborations at two of the shows.

LEIGH-ANNE SHARES NEW TRACK

‘FORBIDDEN FRUIT’

OUT NOW

Today, Leigh-Anne shares a brand-new track ‘Forbidden Fruit’, the second lifted from an upcoming collection of songs, out now via Warner Records.

Listen to ‘Forbidden Fruit’ here: https://WMI.lnk.to/ForbiddenFruit

Leigh-Anne surrenders to the throes of lust and temptation on this sultry new track. With lyrics dripping with passion and a mesmerising reggae-infused beat, ‘Forbidden Fruit’ continues to perfectly showcase Leigh-Anne’s artistry and sonic direction as an artist. Produced by Albert Hype, and written by Leigh-Anne alongside J Kash and Nija, the track is the second to be lifted from an upcoming collection of songs. The track also arrives with a stunning dance visualiser ‘Forbidden Fruit (Chapter II)’, directed by Nathan James Tettey.

Talking about the track, Leigh-Anne explains: “I wrote ‘Forbidden Fruit’ at a writing camp in Miami, and it’s actually about how André and I met. This one gives me sweaty, sultry, reggae dance vibes. The way the beat drops makes me so excited to bring this one to the stage.”

‘Forbidden Fruit’ follows the heartfelt R&B cut ‘Stealin Love’, and part of an upcoming collection of songs Leigh-Anne created whilst working on her debut album. Speaking about this collection, Leigh-Anne said: “I’ve been writing & recording so much working on my album but while making it, I’ve made a collection of songs that fit together in their own world.” Next month Leigh-Anne plays an intimate headline show which sold out in seconds. This debut solo show will be one of the first chances for fans to hear Leigh-Anne’s new music live.

Last year Leigh-Anne released the garage-infused ‘Don’t Say Love’ and the Ayra Starr assisted ‘My Love’ as she continues to cement her rebirth as a solo artist.

As a solo artist, Leigh-Anne has quickly amassed over 60M global streams, earnt two UK top 40 singles and graced the cover of countless publications including Rolling Stone UK, Glamour and Tush. Experimenting with new sounds, ‘Don’t Say Love’ and ‘My Love’ have so far seen Leigh-Anne embrace genres such as Garage and Afrobeats. ‘Stealin Love’ showed a more raw and honest side of Leigh-Anne as she explored the darker sides to love, while ‘Forbidden Fruit’ is a passionate and sultry banger which sees Leigh-Anne surrendering to temptation. ‘Stealin Love’ and ‘Forbidden Fruit’ are the first taste of an upcoming collection of songs that perfectly showcases Leigh-Anne’s artistry and sonic direction as an artist.

Praise for Rachel Chinouriri

 

“It’s no surprise the singer has taken off: her music is an intoxicating blend of dreamy vocals and prominent guitar lines.” – Sunday Times Culture

 

“What a Devastating Turn of Events, the 14-track record will leave listeners emotionally winded at every turn.” – ES Magazine

 

Rachel weaves a rich story, one that comes with a myriad of lessons to be taken forward, all to the soundtrack of dreamy guitars and sparkling soundscapes.” – Dork, 5*

 

“Consistently charming, while offering enough range in sound and scope to hint at Chinouriri’s future ambitions. She has worked hard to make it sound this easy” – NME, 4*

 

“the mark of a true indie star in the making… huge things surely await.” – Rolling Stone UK

 

“a unique voice on the British indie scene” – Grazia

 

“A really singular voice, really stretching her own boundaries and the boundaries of the industry we’re in today… she feels like she’s on the runway for takeoff”  Monocle On Culture

Hotly tipped alternative indie pop artist Rachel Chinouriri today releases her long-awaited debut album What A Devastating Turn Of Events via Parlophone / Atlas Artists.

What A Devastating Turn Of Events is a culmination of the experiences, challenges and joys of Chinouriri’s life so far, explored through the prism of musical stylings honed through years of experimentation and creation. Ever-eclectic and brutally honest, the album traverses life’s light and shade, the writing and sharing a healing process for Rachel, and she hopes, her listeners.

What A Devastating Turn Of Events features the singles ‘It Is What It Is’, ‘What A Devastating Turn Of Events’, ‘Never Need Me’ (with a video starring Florence Pugh) and ‘The Hills’. To coincide with the release Rachel has shared tender album highlight ‘Robbed’, an intimate reflection on grief and loss.

On releasing the album, Rachel shares “This album is a culmination of the beginning of a journey I’ve been waiting to take for a while and to be honest, there were points where it might’ve not happened. I hope people are able to hear my potential and creativity and tune in for many more future albums. This album could’ve gone so many ways but I decided to try and make it reflect on my life and upbringing. I could’ve made it wonky, moody and more experimental but to get to this position has been such a struggle, especially being black and British… and now I’m just ready to have FUN. The topics are sad, but I felt like I was just so sad for years and now I feel like I’m healing and can just have fun and be free now. With releasing this album… I just feel so free and so happy. No matter what anyone thinks, I just am happy that I can hopefully perk more interest and continue to grow and flourish in music”.

Listen to WhatA Devastating Turn Of Events

Following a triumphant sold out headline show at London’s KOKO, and her sold out debut headline shows in the US in New York and LA, Rachel is currently back on the road for a run of intimate outstore dates in celebration of the release of What A Devastating Turn Of Events. See below for the full list of dates.

On What A Devastating Turn of Events, Rachel Chinouriri is unflinching and mesmerising as she invites us into her world and the experiences that have shaped her to become the person she is today. Despite facing up to the darkest parts of herself and her life – relationships, loneliness, regret, abuse, unconditional freedom, self harm, alcohol abuse and ultimately, death – Rachel asks us to consider the beauty amongst it all too.

The record examines the thoughts that had been swirling around her head: there are more long-standing themes of love, self-deprecation, unworthy exes and finding her boundaries in the album’s first half, but then in the second half, things get heavier.

It’s a turning point,” she says, “Each song represents how you deal with trauma, but on the second half it’s when you get bad news and your world turns upside down.” This is an album which deals with grief, heartache, hurt, and what she calls the “worst-case scenarios” when these things are left unspoken for too long.

“I’m a lot better now,” she smiles, “And all of these topics don’t hurt me anymore, to a degree, but they shaped me and made me the person I am. When these things happen, you will never be the person you were before then, you adapt; and I think this album reflects that. It’s a healing tool, and I’m hoping people listening to it might feel less alone.”

In the process of learning to collaborate with other writers and producers in the creation of her debut album, Rachel was able to create the sonic world that she’d long been searching for. From soft acoustics to shiny indie pop to roaring scuzz, there’s her mellifluous vocal, the sumptuous harmonies, and even occasional bouts of cheeky, chatty speak-singing à la Kate Nash and Lily Allen, through which she builds upon her penchant for candid, lyrical songwriting.

What A Devastating Turn Of Events’ expansive palette was fleshed out with executive producer Rich Turvey (Blossoms, The Courteeners, The Coral), and co-credits include hip-hop behemoth Kenny Beats, and writers like Aaron “Apob” Paul O’Brien, Glen Roberts, Mary Weitz, and her long-term collaborator Daniel Hylton-Nuamah.

THE BLACK KEYS RELEASE NEW ALBUM OHIO PLAYERS VIA NONESUCH

THE BLACK KEYS RELEASE NEW ALBUM OHIO PLAYERS VIA NONESUCH – OUT NOW

RELEASE ARRIVES ALONGSIDE NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR ALBUM TRACK “ON THE GAME,” CO-WRITTEN WITH NOEL GALLAGHER – WATCH HERE

BAND RECENTLY ANNOUNCED 3ARENA SHOW MAY 3 2024

 

 

April 5, 2024 –The Black Keys released their highly anticipated 12th studio album, Ohio Players, today, alongside a new music video for the album track “On The Game,” co-written with Noel Gallagher, via Nonesuch/Warner Records. Listen to the album here and watch the new video here.

The music video for “On the Game” further highlights the album’s nature of fun, serving as a check-in on fan-favorite Derrick Tuggle, who was the breakout star of the music video for the band’s 2011 single “Lonely Boy.” Also making a special appearance is skateboarding legend Tony Hawk.

Rolling Stone said of the album, which was inspired by band members Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney’s recent “record hang” parties, “Whether they set their retro-rock wayback machine to Memphis in the Sixties, the Midwest in the Seventies, or Manchester, England, and L.A. in the Nineties, it all flows together like a beautifully paced DJ set,” calling it “arguably the sharpest collection of songs the Keys have come up with.” Ohio Players is a fresh departure from the band’s previous releases, invoking brand-new influences while still maintaining the signature, well-loved sound they are best known for. With an emphasis on collaboration, the album features contributions from friends and colleagues, including Beck, Noel Gallagher, Dan “The Automator” Nakamura, Greg Kurstin, Juicy J, Lil Noid, and others.

Mojo states that Ohio Players is “the sound of a band rejuvenated,” echoing Carney’s thoughts on the record: “We had this epiphany: ‘We can call our friends to help us make music.’” Auerbach adds, “No matter who we work with, it never feels like we’re sacrificing who we are. It only feels like it adds some special flavor. We just expanded that palette with people we wanted to work with.”

“We’d never worked harder to make a record,” he continues. “It’s never taken us this long to make an album. We took our time and did it right.”

“What we wanted to accomplish with this record was make something that was fun,” Carney says. “And something that most bands 20 years into their career don’t make, which is an approachable, fun record that is also cool.”

Earlier this week, The Black Keys announced a 2024 North American headline tour in support of the new album. Ahead of this leg of the tour, The Black Keys will also head to Europe to debut their brand-new live show. Tickets for all shows are on-sale now.

Ohio Players – Tracklist:

 

1.     This Is Nowhere

2.     Don’t Let Me Go

3.     Beautiful People (Stay High)

4.     On The Game

5.     Only Love Matters

Today, Leigh-Anne shares a brand-new track ‘Stealin’ Love’, the first taken from a recently announced collection of songs, out now via Warner Records.

Listen to ‘Stealin’ Love’ here https://leigh-anne.lnk.to/stealinlove

The heartfelt R&B cut sees a more raw and honest side of Leigh-Anne as she explores the darker sides to love. Pairing soulful lyrics with an infectious instrumental and distorted vocal loop, ‘Stealin’ Love’ is the first of a collection of songs that perfectly showcases Leigh-Anne’s artistry and sonic direction as an artist. Produced by Ian Kirkpatrick (Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez), the track was written by Leigh-Anne alongside collaborators Jermaine Jackson, Philip Plested and RØMANS.

Talking about the track, Leigh-Anne explains: “‘Stealin’ Love’ speaks to those times when you feel like you are pouring so much love into someone and not getting what you need back. I think it’s incredibly powerful to be open and honest about these moments.”

Last week Leigh-Anne shared that ‘Stealin’ Love’ is the first of a collection of songs she created whilst working on her debut album: “I’ve been writing & recording so much working on my album but while making it, I’ve made a collection of songs that fit together in their own world. The first song is coming next week and then I’ll be sharing more new music in the following weeks. Sh*t’s about to get very real…”

‘Stealin’ Love’ follows on from the garage-infused ‘Don’t Say Love’ and the Ayra Starr assisted ‘My Love’ as Leigh-Anne continues to cement her rebirth as a solo artist.

As a solo artist, Leigh-Anne has quickly amassed over 60M global streams, earnt two UK top 40 singles and graced the cover of countless publications including Rolling Stone UK, Glamour and Tush. Experimenting with new sounds, ‘Don’t Say Love’ and ‘My Love’ have so far seen Leigh-Anne embrace genres such as Garage and Afrobeats.

MARCH 27, 2024 – GRAMMY® Award winning duo Twenty One Pilots have announced details of their massive global headline The Clancy World Tour and shared “Next Semester,” a new song from their highly anticipated forthcoming album, Clancy, which will be released May 17th via Fueled By Ramen [album artwork / tracklist below].

Twenty One Pilots will celebrate the release of Clancy with The Clancy World Tour, their biggest headline tour ever set to get underway August 15th at Denver, CO’s Ball Arena. Produced by Live Nation, the tour will traverse North America through the fall followed by dates in New Zealand, Australia, Europe and the United Kingdom [see tour itinerary below].  Fans can participate in an official artist presale for tickets beginning April 2nd (US/CA) and April 3rd (UK/EU/AU/NZ) with all remaining tickets available during the general on sale at 10:00 AM local time on Friday, April 5th. For tickets and complete details for Twenty One Pilots’ The Clancy World Tour visit www.twentyonepilots.com/tour.

Last month, Twenty One Pilots returned with news of Clancy and released the album’s lead single “Overcompensate” alongside an accompanying official music video directed by Reel Bear Media. The track, which has rocketed up the Alternative Radio chart currently sitting Top 5, made a massive impact upon launch as it welcomed  listeners back to the band’s immersive world of ‘Trench.’

 

Clancy is currently available for pre-order in a variety of physical formats including: two limited-edition deluxe box sets, four vinyl variants with additional retailer exclusives, an exclusive CD + Journal Book and a Cassette + Photocard Wallet, and much more. For the full suite of Clancy pre-order offerings, visit Twenty One Pilots’ official store.

 

Having amassed over 33 billion streams worldwide and over 3 million tickets sold across global headline tours, the Columbus, OH based duo of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun have established themselves as one of the most successful bands of the 21st century and redefined the sound of a generation.  Co-produced by Joseph and Paul Meany, Clancy marks the final chapter in an ambitious multi-album narrative first introduced in the band’s 2015 multi-Platinum breakthrough, Blurryface.  Furthermore, Clancy’s forthcoming release on May 17th coincides with the 9th anniversary of Blurryface, which was released exactly nine years prior to the day.

 

Twenty One Pilots extended the ambitious concept laid out in Blurryface with their 2018 Platinum-certified album TRENCH.  Featuring the multi-Platinum and Platinum singles “Chlorine,” “My Blood” and the GRAMMY® Award-nominated “Jumpsuit,” the album graced spots on “Best of” year-end lists by Billboard, KERRANG!, Alternative Press, and Rock Sound—who placed it at #1.

 

The duo’s 2021 RIAA Gold certified epic Scaled And Icy debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top “Rock Albums” and “Alternative Albums” charts while landing at No. 3 on the “Billboard 200,” marking the biggest opening week for a rock album in 2021. The record is highlighted by the #1 Alternative Radio hits “The Outside,” “Saturday,” and “Shy Away,” the latter of which ascended to #1 at the format in just three weeks, placing the duo in an elite group of acts with multiple songs to rise to #1 at the format in three weeks or less including: U2, R.E.M., The Cure, Linkin Park, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Foo Fighters.

DEBUT ALBUM FIREWORKS & ROLLERBLADES OUT APRIL 5

FEATURING #1 GLOBAL HIT “BEAUTIFUL THINGS”

 

Fireworks & Rollerblades album artwork

 

March 21, 2024 (Los Angeles, CA) – Today, global pop sensation Benson Boone returns with his anthemic new single “Slow It Down.” Listen HERE via Night Street Records/Warner Records and watch the video HERE. The aching, piano-driven number comes from the breakout star’s hotly anticipated debut album, Fireworks & Rollerblades, arriving April 5. Pre-order the album HERE.

 

“Slow It Down” follows Boone’s massive Platinum hit Beautiful Things,” which quickly catapulted to the top of the charts, and reached #1 in the Irish Singles Chart last week. It also reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the track claimed the #1 spot on the Billboard Global Charts for four weeks straight and has amassed over 600 million streams to date. That hit single, along with past smashes Ghost Town and In the Stars will be featured on Fireworks & Rollerblades.

The North American leg of Boone‘s fully sold-out headline tour kicks off with two shows in Chicago on April 2 and 3, with stops in Brooklyn, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and more before wrapping up in Vancouver on May 4. On May 21, the singer-songwriter will cross the pond to begin his trek across the UK and Europe, starting in London and ending in Helsinki on June 11. In September, he’ll finish off the tour in Australia and New Zealand. See the complete list of tour dates below.

 

“Beautiful Things” and his upcoming tour continue a trend of big achievements for Boone. Earlier this year, iHeartRadio named him an On The Verge Artist, and last year, he was named an Amazon Music Breakthrough Artist and MTV’s Global PUSH Artist for October. Meanwhile, his PULSE EP generated tens of millions of streams for tracks like What Was,” Little Runaway,” and Sugar Sweet.” He headlined a sold-out headline tour across North America and Europe, then ended the year with the release of his moving single To Love Someone.

 

The PULSE EP was preceded by his 2022 piano ballad Before You and the Walk Me Home… EP, which included his breakout single GHOST TOWN — Boone‘s first entry on the Billboard Hot 100 and a Top 25 hit at both Top 40 and Hot AC radio. It also became his first RIAA-certified Gold record, followed by “In The Stars,” which is now certified Platinum.
