Filmed in Los Angeles, the emotional clip was directed by renowned British director Sophie Muller (Beyoncé, Coldplay, Gwen Stefani) and sees Cyrus and Labrinth, mimicking each other’s longing for their partner’s amorous affection. “As soon as I heard the song I wanted to do it. I loved her voice on it and thought it was so arresting and brave sounding,” said Muller.

 

“I feel like I got to make a great moment with two creatively exalted people,” exclaimed Labrinth while Cyrus said, “Lab is like a big brother to me, so having him on set for my first video was amazing. Also, getting to work with someone as talented as Sophie was such an honor. I had the best time making this video!”

 

The introductory song was met with unanimous praise in the U.S. and abroad, and has already garnered five million combined streams and views in just one week. Billboard deems it “A step away from the typical bubbly pop song most singers launch their careers with,” while Seventeen says its, “One of the edgiest pop songs of 2016.”

 

In the U.K., The Daily Mail affirmed she “Stands out with her own unique, dreamy sound,” and i-D said, “We’ve had @noahcyrus‘ new banger ‘Make Me (Cry)’ on repeat here at i-D HQ and we recommend you do the same.”

 

Hailing from music family royalty, Cyrus is no stranger to the industry, yet has a strong voice of her own. She has officially signed a record deal with RECORDS, as well as a publishing deal with sister company, SONGS Music Publishing. She is currently writing and recording songs for her forthcoming album.

MEASHA BRUEGGERGOSMAN Announces release of “SONGS OF FREEDOM”

Measha Brueggergosman

Shares First Track ‘Amazing Grace’  HERE

Toronto, ON – On January 13, 2017, award-winning Canadian soprano, Measha Brueggergosman will release the much-anticipated Songs Of Freedom, companion piece to the 2015 film of the same name that was nominated for 4 Canadian Screen Awards, which documented Brueggergosman’s own journey and connection to her faith, family history, and spirituals; a story of discovery from her Cameroonian ancestry, escape from American slavery and arrival in Canada.  Timing is everything and this couldn’t be a better time to share a collection of songs about emancipation, family, faith and discovery.

CHILDISH GAMBINO CONFIRMS AWAKEN, MY LOVE!

CHILDISH GAMBINO

10 NOVEMBER 2016 (Toronto, ON) Childish Gambino has confirmed that his third full length album,  Awaken, My Love! (Glassnote Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company) is set for release on December 2, 2016. Today, his social media accounts revealed the album’s cover, track listing and a link to the album’s pre-order. First track, “Me and Your Mama” was debuted today by Zane Lowe as a Beats 1 World Record. Zane played the song 6 times in a row, a record for the program, with additional plays throughout the show. The track is available here.

As Childish Gambino once again sheds his skin, Awaken My Love! is a sonic evolution. It has been described as “R&B meets Pink Floyd,” by one journalist while others have cited an amalgam of rock, funk, and soul influences. It is a groundbreaking next step following the genre blending STN MTN / Kauai mixtape and the twice-Grammy nominated rap album, because the internet. 

Breaking the mold and creating fully-formed, alternate worlds is a trademark of this creator, who presented  Awaken My Love! first at his PHAROS festival in Joshua Tree, CA last September. To attend, fans utilized the scalper-proof PHAROS app which served as a “compass” that guided guests and communicated the ethos of both the event and the new music as “a gathering of the 5 intuitives of the human experience: tribe, ritual, experience abstraction, architecture, language.”

Reactions to Awaken, My Love! from PHAROS hinted to expect the unexpected.

Gambino’s new music has a fusion of funk, soul, hip-hop and blues, among other genres, blended together to create a gumbo of audial goodness. It’s feel-good, going-down-memory-lane, being-in-your-feelings kind of music. It’s passionate, yet light and vibrant. It’s a must-listen so be on the lookout for when the material is released to the public.” – BillboardIf Because the Internet represented a vape-smoking, phone-obsessed, introspective, existentialist part of Gambino, (the new music) opens a window to another side of him: one that is earthier and more ritualistic.” – The Fader

(The new music) cleverly fuses elements of funk, jazz, soul, blues, Hip Hop and pop in ways not heard since The Love Below. Gambino lets loose his inner George Clinton, James Brown and Andre 3000 fearlessly. For the nearly 70-minute span, the 12 featureless songs feel like transforming organisms that flow freely to the next.” – HipHopDx

…somehow, Gambino stood out on that ledge like a hurricane, giving us Parliament Funkadelic on one song and Earth, Wind & Fire on another. The choir rollicked as fake lightning lit up the false sky. The guitars hummed.  It was vision of the future of experiential music, featuring incredibly well-done music of black-art-past with a modern twist. A way lighted by Childish Gambino and Ludwig Goransson, specifically.” – Okayplayer
