CRAIG DAVID NEW ALBUM FOLLOWING MY INTUITION OUT SEPTEMBER 30TH

NEW SINGLE “AIN’T GIVING UP” OUT NOW

(London, England – August 19, 2016) – It has been the most talked about and relevant return to music by an artist in decades! Having sold over 15 million albums, achieving 16 Top Ten hits and multi-platinum status in more than 20 countries, taking over festival stages around the world, selling out headline tours in seconds to securing a residency at the iconic Ibiza Rocks Hotel …It’s official, Craig David is back and in a big way!

Ahead of his performances at V Festival this weekend, Craig announces the release of his highly anticipated new album, Following My Intuition out September 30th and his new single, “Ain’t Giving Up” (with Sigala), out now through Speakerbox/Insanity.

A perfect and fresh blend of Craig’s pioneering garage sound, RnB and blazing club bangers, he wrote hundreds of tracks over the course of three years to make the most important album of his career. The album is a celebration of one of the UK’s most loved artists, back on British soil, and at the helm of his own unique, authentically British sound. A sound that made waves across the globe, making him the voice of one of the most pivotal eras in UK music, and in turn, making him one of the most successful artists in UK chart history.

Craig says, “I’m back in that 16 year old kid mode, hungry, passionate and making music that I’m truly proud of. I want to deliver the music that people have been asking for, for so long, following my intuition and coming from a great place.”

Sixteen years since the critically-acclaimed, Born To Do It changed his life, Craig catapulted back into the charts and in to the nation’s hearts with Big Narstie on the gold certified single “When The Bassline Drops,” marking the beginning his triumphant return. Craig has since leapt from strength to strength on our airwaves, and has been unavoidable on our TV screens and on the live circuit ever since.

From the bass bubbling smash hit, “Nothing Like This” with Blonde to the stripped back “All We Needed” showcasing Craig’s flawless vocals, the new album pays homage to his distinctive signature sound, but also shows Craig in a new found light. It is the same, instantly recognisable voice, but showing the progression of an artist that has truly come in to his own. Speaking to a new generation who are listening with fresh ears and sparking euphoric nostalgia in fans that have waited for his return… Craig David has come home, and we couldn’t be happier!

New Single, “Keep Her Love” Premieres on ConfrontMagazine.com Today!

 

[Toronto, ON – August 18, 2016] Vancouver-based duo, Dani and Lizzy release their major label debut album, Work of Heart on September 9 via 604 Records/Sony Music Entertainment Canada. Their long-awaited single, “Keep Her Love,” premieres exclusively on Confront Magazine today. The album will be available for pre-order tomorrow, August 19, on iTunes. Fans who pre-order the album will receive the single, “Keep Her Love.”

 

Dani and Lizzy collaborated with fellow songwriters to create Work of Heart and it will feature their viral sensation and first single, “Dancing In The Sky,” which was self-released in 2013. “Dancing In The Sky” was recently revamped by producer, Colin Janz (Carly Rae Jepsen, The Katherines) and was rereleased in May with an official music video. Since its rerelease, the video has already gained over 770K views on YouTube, while the original video for the track has gained over 14 M views.

 

The new single, “Keep Her Love,” is a song that gives heart-broken fans relationship advice. “I love that song,” says Dani, “I always wanted to make a song that kinda schools men to treat their women right.” The song is dedicated to all the bad boyfriends of the world, as the girls belt out a lesson in manners. They keep the positivity going throughout the rest of the album, as it also features the song “Muse,” which the twins describe as “a smooth and slow burning pop smash that captures the feeling of falling in love,” and “Do It Again,” which gives writing credits to their brother, rapper/DJ, Emotionz.

 

To celebrate the release of their debut album, 604 Records will host a live performance, Q&A session and exclusive fan signing on September 8, 2016 – a day ahead of the release.

HAWKSLEY WORKMAN CELEBRATES 15th ANNIVERSARY OF CLASSIC HOLIDAY LP ALMOST A FULL MOON

1

 

(August 15, 2016 – Toronto, ON) – Award-winning singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Hawksley Workman has just announced the release of a very special illustrated children’s book in celebration of the 15th anniversary of his classic Christmas LP Almost a Full Moon. Based on the lyrics of a song from the album of the same name, Almost a Full Moon is a warm-hearted tale of family, community, food and home and is illustrated by Jensine Eckwall, who helps brings beauty and a hint of magic to Workman’s evocative lyrics. The book will be published September 6, 2016 by Tundra Books (a division of Random House Canada). Pre-order the book HERE. Workman has also just announced the release of a limited edition (limited to 500 copies) vinyl pressing of Almost a Full Moon, which will include a special Lyrics and Chords “Songbook” of the original album tracks, as well as a free download card for the album, including the two bonus tracks “Watching The Fires” and “Silent Night”. The special vinyl pressing will be released in conjunction with Workman’s Canadian tour, which kicks off on December 5 in Winnipeg.

A slight departure from past musical feats, Workman’s latest project is no less ambitious or creative. A staple of the Canadian arts scene for over 17 years, Workman boasts a catalogue of 16 solo releases showcasing his now signature spectrum of sonic influence, from cabaret to electro-pop to anthemic rock and plenty in between. The accolades amassed include JUNO nods and wins and widespread critical acclaim. As a producer, his fingerprints grace releases by JUNO and Polaris Prize nominees and winners like Tegan and Sara, Sarah Slean, Serena Ryder, Hey Rosetta!, and Great Big Sea. He’s also penned melodies with a myriad of artists, from Oscar award winning Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose, Inception) to French rock icon Johnny Hallyday. Hawksley’s touring career has seen him play nearly a thousand shows worldwide. He’s headlined prestigious venues like Massey Hall in Toronto and The Olympia in Paris, and opened for heroes Morrissey, David Bowie, and The Cure.

One of Hawksley’s most recent impressive achievements is the award winning one-man cabaret theatre show called The God That Comes, which he co-wrote and performs in. The show debuted in 2013 and continues to draw rave critical reviews and sold-out crowds. The God That Comes also quickly gained international attention including successful runs at the Tarragon Theatre in Toronto, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, New Zealand Festival, and the Arhus Festival in Denmark.

Hawksley Workman is many things to many people in many places, but primarily, he’s a student of the human psyche; an artist in the purest sense of the word, constantly finding fresh and interesting ways to frame and share the world – the people we are and the things we encounter. It’s a virtually bottomless well of ideas for a man with virtually endless imagination and creative outlets. More information will be announced when available.

DOLCE VITA JONAS KAUFMANN PAYS PERSONAL TRIBUTE TO ITALY

1

 

Italy! Like nowhere else on earth – the sunshine and sea salt, the smell of citrus and coffee, a flirtatious glance, an incomparable song drawn deep from the heart. Italy and its immortal music have a magical pull on people like no other culture – and Jonas Kaufmann feels this particularly keenly. The new album Dolce vita is his tribute to this culture, this way of life that has conceived one immortal melody after the other for the tenor voice and influenced him so much. Now Sony Classical is proud to present this special collection of timeless Italian songs – sung by “The world’s greatest tenor” (The Daily Telegraph).

Jonas Kaufmann has had a special bond with Italy since his youth. Growing up in Germany’s most southern city – Munich, locally known as “the most northern city of Italy” – meant that holidays in Italy were just a car ride away for him and his family. Since spending these childhood holidays playing with local bambini, Jonas Kaufmann has absorbed much more than just the Italian language: long familiar with Italy’s ways, its southern temperament, its love of good food, and its fashion and flair, Jonas feels very much at home in this adopted culture. Naturally, much of the magic and authority that Jonas brings to the opera stage stems from his passion and understanding of this Mediterranean land and its music.

But the opera stage is not the only place where the magic of an Italian tenor melody is to be found. Many wondrous songs were written so perfectly for great tenor voices throughout the late 19th and 20th centuries, such as Mattinata, which was dedicated to Enrico Caruso; Non ti scordar di me, which was first sung by Beniamino Gigli in the 1935 movie of the same title; and Parlami d’amore, Mariù, written for the future film director Vittorio De Sica to sing in the comedy Gli uomini, che mascalzoni. The passion and beauty of Italian melody can also be heard in such Neapolitan hits as Torna a Surriento, Core ‘ngrato and Passione. Even some of today’s pop songs display the unmistakable stamp of italianità, as for example in Un amore così grande, which was first sung and recorded by Mario Del Monaco in 1976, or in Lucio Dalla’s Caruso and Romano Musumarra’s Il canto, written expressly for Luciano Pavarotti.

Now Jonas presents his own personal homage to a culture where the influence and beauty of opera are felt far beyond the walls of the opera houses. Jonas recorded the album in Palermo with conductor Asher Fisch and the Orchestra del Teatro Massimo di Palermo, who bring their innate Italian flair to this music. Jonas will present the songs live in concert later this season.

The album Dolce vita will be released internationally on October 7, 2016 in deluxe, standard, vinyl and digital formats.

JIDENNA ANNOUNCES GROUNDBREAKING GLOBAL LAUNCH FOR LONG LIVE THE CHIEF

JIDENNA ANNOUNCES GROUNDBREAKING GLOBAL LAUNCH FOR LONG LIVE THE CHIEF ALONGSIDE EPIC RECORDS, SONY MUSIC WEST AFRICA, & SONY MUSIC SOUTH AFRICA

FIRST FOR SONY MUSIC GLOBALLY & FIRST CROSS-CONTINENTAL LAUNCH OF THIS MAGNITUDE BETWEEN U.S. & AFRICA

“CHIEF DON’T RUN” MUSIC VIDEO PREMIERING AUGUST 18

(August 12, 2016 – New York, NY) – In true pioneering fashion, Epic announces a groundbreaking alliance with Sony Music West Africa, and Sony Music South Africa for the worldwide launch of Jidenna’s anxiously awaited debut album, Long Live The Chief [Wondaland Records/Epic Records]. During this synergistic global experience, Jidenna will tour the African continent for a series of exclusive performances, album release parties and the filming of a BBC documentary, which will chronicle his homecoming journey to Nigeria.

Not only is this unprecedented for Sony Music, but it marks the beginning of a new chapter in the label’s storied history.

“Never before have our divisions collaborated on something of this magnitude, but we are a global brand with a deep commitment to celebrating artists on the continent and throughout the African diaspora,” says Sylvia Rhone, President of Epic Records. “And we are so excited to begin this journey with someone as uniquely talented and as special as Jidenna.” Since bursting on the scene in 2015 with his Grammy nominated debut smash, “Classic Man,” from Wondaland’s compilation EP, The Eephus, Jidenna has been blazing a bright trail in the worlds of music and fashion. The swank master of ceremonies’ distinctive swagger and style – both musically and sartorially — quickly established him as one of 2015’s hottest breakout stars.

Born in Wisconsin and raised in Nigeria, with stops afterwards in Boston, the San Francisco-Bay Area, and Brooklyn have imbued Jidenna with a worldly demeanor and ability to connect with listeners from many walks of life. Long Live The Chief’s first single “Little Bit More” captures Jidenna’s varied influences and heritage against a background of pulsing Afro beats drums, hinting at what’s to come on the rest of the album. Speaking on the album, Jidenna shares his thoughts: “The record as a whole represents all my experiences of the many worlds I’ve lived in and traveled through from Lagos to Los Angeles. “Confidently standing at the intersection of high-fashion, globetrotting, activism, and groundbreaking art, Long Live The Chief functions as a statement for modern music and culture at large.

Jidenna will be bringing all of this and more on his trip to Africa in late August. Heading to Nigeria first, Jidenna will host an exclusive album launch event in conjunction with TRACE TV, featuring a live performance at the newly opened Hard Rock Café in Lagos; interviews with Nigeria’s leading radio stations and lifestyle publications (This Day Style, BellaNaija.com, Linda Ikeji, Mania Magazine, Beat FM, Urban FM); and Jidenna will begin filming an exclusive documentary, produced by BBC International and True Africa, about his journey back to his childhood home in Enugu, Nigeria. Then, Jidenna will travel to Johannesburg, South Africa for a promotional tour which will include interviews with Top Billing, 5FM, YFM, GQ Africa; as well as an album launch party and a special showcase in conjunction with TRACE TV. “When I first met Jidenna I recognized that he is an artist with a unique energy that transcends boundaries, and we’re turning that energy way up by having him release his debut record in a way that transcends boundaries, too,” says Wondaland Records CEO Janelle Monáe.

And Jidenna is just getting started. The music video for his latest single, “Chief Don’t Run,” premieres on August 18. Jidenna relays, “Launching an album like this is massive, but I wouldn’t want to do it any other way. The road ahead is long, but like the song says: Chief Don’t Run.”

“The music is both carefree and faintly bittersweet, and it’s so guilelessly beautiful”

– Pitchfork
Motion Graphics, the solo project of NY based electronic artist Joe Williams, announces its’ debut with a self-titled LP out August 26th on Domino. Created over a two year period between NY, LA, & Baltimore, Motion Graphics is a unique and compelling collection of richly detailed widescreen compositions, inspired in part by the ambient sound effects of digital menu systems that decorate today’s auditory landscape. Creating custom randomized software instruments, Williams’ mimics the erraticism of the Twitter timeline and the aggregated news feed, while incorporating elements of techno-pop and jazz, sequenced through the superhuman capabilities of a computer. Motion Graphics is an ambitious debut from an artist adept at manipulating the sounds and digital tools ubiquitous to the everyday.
