BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN RELEASES CHAPTER AND VERSE ON SEPTEMBER 23RD

1

(Toronto, ON, July 28, 2016) ‘Chapter and Verse,’ the audio companion to Bruce Springsteen’s extraordinary forthcoming autobiography, will be released Sept. 23 on Columbia Records. The career-spanning compilation will be released four days before Simon & Schuster publishes ‘Born to Run.’ Five of the album’s 18 tracks have not been previously released.

 

Springsteen selected the songs on ‘Chapter and Verse’ to reflect the themes and sections of ‘Born to Run.’ The compilation begins with two tracks from The Castiles, featuring a teenaged Springsteen on guitar and vocals, and ends with the title track from 2012’s ‘Wrecking Ball.’  The collected songs trace Springsteen’s musical history from its earliest days, telling a story that parallels the one in the book.

 

Recordings from Steel Mill and The Bruce Springsteen Band feature musicians who would go on to play in The E Street Band. Solo demos of “Henry Boy” and “Growin’ Up” were cut in 1972 shortly before Springsteen began recording his debut album, ‘Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J.’

 

‘Chapter and Verse’ will be available as a single CD and double LP, as well as via digital download and streaming. The package will include lyrics and rare photos. ‘Chapter & Verse’ will be available for preorder on Friday, July 29.

JASON BENOIT RELEASES LATEST SINGLE “ALL WANNA PARTY” TODAY

Toronto, ON-July 27th – Jason Benoit, one of Canada’s rising country stars, releases his new single “All Wanna Party” today through JV Records/Sony Music Canada. A barn-burning track, it follows Benoit’s previous smashes “Crazy Kinda Love,” “Cold Day Comin’” and the Top 10 charting “Gone Long Gone.”

 

The arrival of “All Wanna Party” continues to build excitement for Benoit’s soon-to-be-released full-length debut album, and like his previous singles was produced in Nashville with Dave “Dwave” Thomson (Autumn Hill, Leah Daniels). Now represented by Invictus Entertainment, Jason Benoit has been all over Canada with festival appearances at Cavendish Beach, Boots ‘N Hearts, Trackside (London ON), and Manitoulin Island, on top of sharing stages with Brett Kissel and Tim Hicks, as well as headlining the 2016 edition of the Young Guns of Country tour.

 

“I remember hearing and loving songs like “”Okey from Muskogee” and “Friends in Low Places” around kitchen tables and camp fires for pretty much all my life. “All Wanna Party” is my take on these fun sing along songs from my past. I truly hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Cheers”-Jason Benoit

 

Originally from the tiny town of Fox Island River, Newfoundland, Jason Benoit first gained attention with his cover of “This Is What It Feels Like,” the Grammy-nominated song by Dutch DJ Armin van Buuren, co-written with Canadians Jenson Vaughan and Trevor Guthrie. Benoit’s countrified take on the track was included on the Sony Music compilation Country Heat 2014, alongside hits by the likes of Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert.

 

A year later, the success of “Gone Long Gone” led to Benoit’s celebrated appearance at the 2015 Cavendish Beach Music Festival, where he was named the winner of the Canadian Country Music Association’s inaugural Discovery Atlantic Award. This was soon followed by a nomination in the CCMA’s Rising Stars category, and a performance at the awards gala in Halifax. But, accolades aside, Benoit’s natural ability to command an audience whenever he performs live is proof enough that Benoit’s star is truly on the rise.

Legacy Recordings Set to Release New Willie Nelson Studio Album

!cid_77770C61-9BD3-448A-B81E-451F813F1757

Legacy Recordings Set to Release New Willie Nelson Studio Album, For The Good Times: A Tribute To Ray Price, on Friday, September 16

American Music Legend Honors His Friend and Fellow Country Icon With Fresh Interpretation of 12 Classic Songs Ray Price Made Famous

Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will release Willie Nelson’s latest album, For The Good Times: A Tribute To Ray Price, on Friday, September 16.

On his new album, Willie has teamed up with a pair of longtime friends–producer Fred Foster and conductor/arranger Bergen White–who, like Nelson, are American country music veterans with deep connections to the legendary Ray Price.  Foster and White worked together to complete Ray Price’s final album, Beauty Is…, at Nashville’s Ocean Way Studios, where Willie Nelson has returned to create the magic of For The Good Times: A Tribute To Ray Price.

For The Good Times: A Tribute To Ray Price celebrates the wide-reaching impact and influence of Ray Price on American pop and country music, from Price’s hallmark lush orchestral arrangements (presaging “countrypolitan”) to the patented “Ray Price Shuffle,” the groundbreaking 4/4 walking bass line which transformed honky-tonk and country-western swing music in 1950s on hits like “Crazy Arms”.

Providing musical backup for Willie on six of the album’s tracks–“Invitation To The Blues,” “Heartaches By The Numbers,” “Crazy Arms,” “City Lights,” “I’ll Be There” and “Don’t You Ever Get Tired Of Hurting Me”–Willie is joined by The Time Jumpers, the Grammy-nominated Western Swing dream team comprised of Vince Gill (electric and acoustic guitar, harmony vocals), Andy Reiss (electric guitar), Larry Franklin (fiddle), Joe Spivey (fiddle), Kenny Sears (fiddle), Brad Albin (bass), Billy Thomas (drums), Jeff Taylor (piano and accordion), Paul Franklin (pedal steel) and Willie’s  Family Band harmonica player Mickey Raphael.

For the orchestral tracks on For The Good Times: A Tribute To Ray Price, the Nashville String Machine, a full ensemble featuring violins, violas, cellos, string basses, sax, flute and oboe, accompanies Willie.

A seminal figure in post-WWII American country music, singer/songwriter/guitarist Ray Price began his career singing on the local Abilene, Texas radio program “Hillbilly Circus” in 1948 before joining the “Big D Jamboree” in Dallas a year later.  When CBS picked up the show, Price began garnering his first national exposure.  Moving to Nashville in the early 1950s, Price became friends with country music avatar Hank Williams, going on to manage the Drifting Cowboys after Hank’s death in 1953.  That same year, Ray Price formed his own band, the Cherokee Cowboys, a country music ensemble that would employ Willie Nelson as bassist in 1961.

Friends from their first meeting until Ray Price’s passing in 2013, Willie and Ray shared a profound musical bond, exemplified in Price’s hit recordings of Willie-penned songs like the career-defining “Night Life” and “It Always Will Be.”

A visionary and iconoclastic artist, Ray Price defined and shifted the course of American country music over the course of his career.  In the 1950s and 1960s, he kept grassroots country sounds alive through the infusion of rock ‘n’ roll and pop music elements, going so far as to utilize drums at a time when the Grand Ole Opry had banned them from its stage.  By the late 1960s and early 1970s, Price became one of the godfathers of “countrypolitan,” combining lush orchestral arrangements with smooth-as-silk crooning.  Ray Price’s music connected honky-tonk to big band to rock ‘n’ roll to country swing to pop.  America’s musical landscape would look and sound very different without the contributions of Ray Price.

The profound musical relationship between Willie Nelson and Ray Price goes back to 1960, when Nelson, an aspiring singer-songwriter, moved to Nashville to further his career.  Willie’s composition, “Night Life,” became Ray Price’s theme music, the song he’d use to open his shows.  As Willie’s star rose in the country music firmament, he continued to collaborate with Price, releasing the albums San Antonio Rose (1980), Run That by Me One More Time (2003) and Last of the Breed (2007), a trio album with Merle Haggard. Ray Price made an appearance, singing “Cold War with You,” on Willie’s 2012 Legacy album Heroes.

For the Good Times: A Tribute to Ray Price debuts Willie’s new interpretations of 12 songs Price made famous, including “Heartaches by the Number,” “Crazy Arms,” “Night Life,” “Faded Love” and “For the Good Times.”

Martin Garrix delivers new single ‘In The Name Of Love’

!cid_77770C61-9BD3-448A-B81E-451F813F1757

Martin Garrix delivers new single ‘In The Name Of Love’

with Bebe Rexha and signs global label deal with Sony Music International

“In The Name Of Love” will be out July 29th

 

(Toronto, ON July 26th, 2016) The quality of Garrix’s vocal contributions seems to keep on getting better with each release, with Bebe Rexha’s gorgeous delivery and the stunning songcraft of ‘In The Name Of Love’ up there with the best crafted pop music in the world. But this being Martin Garrix, you’re looking at something that falls perfectly between the worlds of arena level dance music and radio catchiness.

 

Rexha’s bittersweet tones are backed by muted guitars chords in the intro, soaring vocal harmonies soon joining for the refrain. The drop delivers a bombastic hip-hop style beat, driven by beefy kicks, huge synth chords and pitch-shifting vocal cut-ups, the glorious vocal continuing to gather power as the track goes on. This isn’t a simple beat + vocal exercise: it’s a proper song that’s been sculpted into a floor-ready bomb and carries all the emotion and impact that great pop music should always have.

 

Bebe Rexha is an American singer-songwriter of Albanian descent who sang vocals on ‘Hey Mama’ with David Guetta, collaborated with Nicki Minaj on ‘No Broken Hearts’ and co-wrote Eminem’s huge ‘Monster’. Garrix’s collaboration with her gives a taste of what to expect on his debut album, which sees him team up with a host of incredibly talented vocalists and songwriters to create something a lot more meaningful than your usual dance album.

 

“In The Name of Love” also marks the first release for Martin under his new worldwide deal with Sony Music International, which was announced earlier today. “Martin is one of the preeminent DJs in the world and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome him and his team to the Sony Music family” said Adam Granite, President Northern & Eastern Europe & Africa, Sony International.

 

Martin Garrix said: “‘I’m super excited to be working with such a hungry and passionate team at Sony Music Entertainment. Their forward thinking approach to streaming and incredible roster of talented artists combined with their passion and understanding for my vision of the future of my music made this a no brainer.”

 

Martin Garrix feat. Bebe Rexha ‘In The Name Of Love’ is out on Sony Music International on July 29.

HAMILTON LEITHAUSER + ROSTAM ANNOUNCE NEW COLLABORATION AND RELEASE NEW SONG “A 1000 TIMES” | UmusicHAMILTON LEITHAUSER + ROSTAM ANNOUNCE NEW COLLABORATION AND RELEASE NEW SONG “A 1000 TIMES” | Umusic

25 JULY 2016 (Toronto, ON) – Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam have released “A 1000 Times” on Glassnote Records/Universal Music Records, the country’s leading music company. In the spirit of collaborations, not unlike those of David Byrne and Brian Eno, each musician’s individuality remains intact, while in fact, both Hamilton’s identity as a singer and Rostam’s as a producer seem to reach new heights.

“’A 1000 Times’ started with a beat I made while Hamilton and I were working out of my studio in LA. We picked it back up in New York and finished writing it in Washington, DC. I wanted us to do a song where the snares would crack as hard as Hamilton’s voice. To me, the song became about that interaction between the vocals and the drums,” says Rostam.

Of the collaboration, Leithauser said, “On that first trip we got so much more done than the 1-2 tracks we’d talked about…we had big parts of maybe 5-6 songs.  We knew we liked it all, but we hadn’t discussed the amount we wanted to make together. It was kind of a funny moment…like a ‘how far are we taking this relationship?’ kind of thing.  I don’t think we made a decision until a few months later, when our next session went well again.  At that point it was definitely going to be a lot more than a few tracks on my next solo record.”

More information on the collaboration to follow in the coming weeks.

GLASS ANIMALS ANNOUNCE NEW SINGLE ‘YOUTH’

1

GLASS ANIMALS ANNOUNCE NEW SINGLE ‘YOUTH’ | UmusicGLASS ANIMALS ANNOUNCE NEW SINGLE ‘YOUTH’ | Umusic

FROM THEIR NEW ALBUM ‘HOW TO BE A HUMAN BEING’ SET TO RELEASE AUGUST 26

26 JULY 2016 (Toronto, ON) – Following the success of their first single, ‘Life Itself’, today Glass Animals announce their hypnotic new single ‘Youth’. The track is taken from their hotly anticipated new album, How To Be A Human Being released via Caroline International / Wolf Tone / Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company, on August 26 and available for preorder now.

How To Be a Human Being is a bold departure lyrically and sonically from the band’s debut ZABA. Having both written and produced the album, lead singer Dave Bayley pushed the project towards something heavier, grittier and rawer in sound and subject matter. Many of Dave’s lyrical ideas came from live recordings of people saved on his phone, as though he’d been operating as some sort of roaming journalist. “I try to sneakily record people, and I have hours and hours of these amazing rants from taxi drivers, people we met outside of shows, people at parties. People tell you some amazing things when they don’t think they’re ever gonna see you again.” The voice notes sparked ideas for characters that Dave developed, writing an album like a TV screenwriter might approach a script. I’d obsess over what they ate, where they lived, what their furniture looked like, what they wore,” he says. ’Youth’ and the accompanying visuals are typical of this. Telling one of stories that resonated the most with lead singer Dave’, he recalls:

“Someone told me a story about her son once that was one of the saddest things I’ve ever heard. What she said was completely heartbreaking, but she told it with such optimism and such a sense of calm. She was on the verge of crying, but she was also smiling and something in her face said that she had found a way to be happy again. This song is trying to get at that sentiment.”

Unveiled in mid-May as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record, ‘Life Itself’ has already elevated the band’s sonorous buzz to a whole new level. This has included A-list at BBC Radio 1, A-list at 6 music and seen the band gather in excess of 2 million monthly Spotify subscribers. Dave makes a point of not listening to his contemporaries when making music, preferring to look inwards to the world Glass Animals have built. In crafting this record, his thoughts returned to one factor he couldn’t even dream of on Zaba – the huge live audiences they’d been drawing. “You sense what the crowds react to: big drums, bass, high tempo.”

Glass Animals’ debut Zaba has so far sold nearly half a million copies worldwide and amassed a staggering 200 million Spotify streams, obliterating all expectations simply by word of mouth. Their anomalous rise has gained the Oxford four-piece a legion of fans all over the world, including festival appearances at the likes of Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and WayHome.

KENNY CHESNEY SETS COUNTRY RADIO ON FIRE JULY 28

1

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Having just dropped a new title – Cosmic Hallelujah – for his upcoming album, Kenny Chesney continues ratcheting up the excitement by releasing “Setting The World On Fire” to country radio on July 28 at 5 p.m. ET. The duet, with triple Grammy-winning P!NK, captures the combustive euphoria of being on the brink of love – and was recorded in part at Rick Rubin’s Malibu studio.

With a tumbling guitar part, clean percussion and pillowy synth pads, the mid-tempo song builds and recedes, featuring a stand-out electric guitar solo from Kenny Greenberg. Invoking the dazzle of being lost in the heart of Saturday night: lipstick on mirrors, philosophical conversations strewn across hours, bands on the speakers matching the name on your t-shirt, “Setting The World On Fire” is the wonder of how sweet and enervating falling into love can be.

“You can’t conjure a song that captures that feeling of being on the brink like this does,” Chesney says. “The lyrics are a perfect way of saying it, but when you feel that melody rise, the arrangement picking up momentum – it’s bigger than you are, and all you want to do is throw yourself against the night. Then when P!NK comes in, well, that just brings this (song) to life.

Having made the decision to delay the follow-up to The Big Revival – with it’s four straight No. 1s, including the Grammy-nominated “American Kids,” “Wild Child” with Grace Potter and the life-affirming, three-week chart-topper “Save It For A Rainy Day,” Chesney’s hopes of having “Setting The World On Fire” as his next single were realized. For the 8-time Entertainer of the Year, it’s a song that embodies the very best part of what summer holds.

“With the Spread the Love Tour in full force,” the man The Wall Street Journal calls “The King of the Road” says, “I wanted a song that packs all that joy, all that fun, all the energy that love is made of. When I heard ‘Setting The World On Fire,’ I knew it was exactly the song I’d been looking for. Like ‘Somewhere With You,’ there’s an urgency, but this one is ‘in’ the moment – and what a moment it is!”

Given Chesney’s history of unlikely – and often chart-topping – duets with Dave Matthews (“I’m Alive”), the Wailers (“Spread The Love”), Mac McAnally (“Down The Road”), Grace Potter (“You & Tequila,” “Wild Child”) and six weeks at No. 1 with Uncle Kracker (“When The Sun Goes Down”),  teaming with P!NK continues his longstanding tradition of seeking the best collaborators in modern music.

“To me, great songs are great songs regardless of genre – and the core of being alive is the same no matter where you are,” Chesney says. “That rush of realizing there’s something going on here… You’re really clicking with someone… Or even just one of those perfect nights with your friends, there’s no feeling like it. And I like the idea of P!NK with her voice that is so strong and contains so many colours, she really makes that idea of giving into your heart, shouting out the window and whirling around in the middle of an abandoned street feel real.”

DIE ANTWOORD ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM MOUNT NINJI AND DA NICE TIME KID

1

FIRST SINGLE “BANANA BRAIN” AVAILABLE AS INSTANT GRAT WITH PRE-ORDER OF THE NEW ALBUM

 

LISTEN HERE

 

“When Ninji, ¥o-landi and God hooked up with The Black Goat and started recording Die Antwoord’s 4th album around 2 years ago the mood of the tracks we started banging out was rough and tough and mischeivious and wild and hard and dark and at that point we were going to call this album RATS RULE, because in life you get the champions and the underdogs and in our minds we sometimes feel like 1 level below the underdogs in this fucked up pop world, but we also know our time is coming, and soon we gonna take over this whole bitch. So anyway, then we made some more tracks and the core of the album stayed all dark and ratty but a new layer oozed out around our dark core that was kinda mental and lunatic and random and juicy and 2 much fun and so we changed the name of our album to WE HAVE CANDY. Then recently while we was finishing up this album another layer exploded out of our dark wild juicy core like a giant supernatural mega aura and suddenly our album was so epic and sometimes vulnerable and sometimes sweet and romantic and so brave and full of mystery and win. Like when you going through hell, and the mission feels impossible, but you not allowed to fail, and all you can do is keep your chin up and keep going, then when you least expect it you emerge from this dark never-ending hole, and… you made it! And you can’t believe it, and you’ve changed inside and you’re better and stronger and calmer and more fun than you were before you journeyed merrily in2 hell. And as we stepped out into the light, a little bruised and battered, but still ok, we blinked and tried to focus then looked at each other and laughed out loud. Then ¥o-landi said, “Why don’t we call the album MOUNT NINJI & DA NICE TIME KID?” And Ninji’s shoulders relaxed and he slumped back into his chair and said, “You a fuckin genius! I love you!” – NINJA & YO-LANDI
