Bantu “Which One” Music Video

Rising Zimbabwean hitmaker, singer and producer Bantu shares the video for his new single ‘Which One featuring Alicaì Harley today.

The perfect recipe for a summer smash, the video was filmed in LA, directed by Bantu and James Davis II and features the Jamaican Born, London based hotly tipped singer and rapper, Alicaì Harley. Written and produced by Bantu, ‘Which One’, has garnered major playlist support across Spotify, landed radio support from BBC 1Xtra, Capital Xtra and specialist radio and has been championed by DJ Target, Toddla T and MistaJam to name a few. 

Which One follows Bantu’s last single ‘Roll With Me’ featuring Shungudzo and ZieZie -which has garnered over 10 million streams to date- and his feature alongside Anuel Aa on Nick Minaj’s ‘Familia’ which was an integral track on the soundtrack for animated film, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. Hailing from Zimbabwe, Bantu’s music and visuals reflect his multicultural background, with a collage of infectious sounds, rhythms and stories. A Grammy nominated singer and producer, Bantu has produced and written for some of the world’s biggest artists (including Jason Derulo, Rita Ora, A$AP Rocky, Camila Cabello, and Pitbull) and shares his management team with Sean Paul.

Bantu released his first single as an artist, ‘Holiday’, in 2016 and his debut EP ‘Africa for the Summer’ in August 2017. In 2018 his single ‘Just a Little’ was featured in the Netflix hit series “On My Block”, and his ‘Jackie Chan’, appeared on the FIFA 19 soundtrack. Bantu is the first artist signed to Blue Future, Jonas Blue’s label founded in partnership with Virgin EMI.

Earmarked as an artist to watch for 2019 by everyone from BBC Radio 1Xtra, Capital Xtra and Redbull through to Grazia magazine, Alicaì Harley has received a wealth of critical acclaim for her beat-heavy, dancehall-infused pop sound. Following on from her breakout single ‘Gold’ Alicaì’s notable releases include female-empowerment anthem ‘Proper Paper’, ‘Do That’ (featuring Dancehall legend Tony Materhorn), a collaboration with Toddla T (‘Instructions’) and her interpolation of Destiny Child’s classic ‘So Good’.

The song was produced by Roget Chahayed (Travis Scott-Sicko Mode, Halsey-Bad At Love) and showcases their unique blend of pop, R&B, jazz and hip-hop. All This Time best represents what it feels like to be a part of the live show experience, and has become a fan favorite while out on the road.

“For us, All This Time is the closest representation of what a Drax Project show is like. The contrast between the clean guitar and vocals to the heavy distorted saxophone is something we’ve been looking to do for a long time, just haven’t quite been able to until working with Roget. We’re sooo stoked to finally have it done,” said the band.
Drax Project’s infectious pop anthem “Woke Up Late” collaborating with multiplatinum-selling artist and Academy Award-Hailee Steinfeld, charted at #2 on New Zealand Pop Radio, #1 on iTunes in New Zealand, and #1 on Shazam in New Zealand for over 4 months with a global push. With over 85 million total streams worldwide and growing daily, the “Woke Up Late” music video features YouTube star Liza Koshy in a fun and refreshing story full of charisma and feel-good vibes.
Watch HERE.
“Woke Up Late” was handpicked as Zane Lowe’s World Record + Amazon’s Song Of The Day, debuted on Billboard’s Pop Songs Chart, and won “Single Of The Year” in the 2018 VNZMAs, where Drax Project was also awarded “Breakthrough Artist”.
The band recently released the acoustic version of their EP NOON. Listen HERE. The acoustic EP highlights their musicianship and peels back the layers of the studio versions. NOON introduced four songs, including certified gold “Toto,” alongside hit “Woke Up Late“. With a new body of work underway, Drax Project is currently in the studio and gearing up to the take the world by storm.

Lil Keed Releases Debut Album

Lil Keed has released his debut album Long Live Mexico out today on Young Stoner Life Records / 300 Entertainment. The title was inspired by Keed’s late friend “Mexico” who passed away earlier this year, the album is Keed’s way of paying respect to a loved one but also celebrating life. Long Live Mexico includes Keed’s recent singles “Oh My God”, “Proud Of Me” featuring Young Thug and “Pull Up” featuring Lil Uzi Vert & YNW Melly, plus new tracks with features from Gunna, Nav, Moneybagg Yo, Lil Gotit, Lil Duke, Roddy Rich, Karlae, Stickbaby, Guap Tarantino and PG Casper.

Keed grew up in the same apartments as Young Thug, who first discovered Keed during a chance meeting in a parking lot where Keed played some of his songs for him. Later that day, Thug invited him to the studio and later signed Keed to his label.

ROCKETMAN “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again”

The video for ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’, a brand-new song written especially for ROCKETMAN by Elton John and Bernie Taupin, and performed by Elton and Taron Egerton, has today been unveiled. The glorious visuals give a vivid snapshot into Elton’s career, taking shots of Taron in the epic musical fantasy ROCKETMAN, intercut with archive live footage, 70’s psychedelic animation, iconic album artwork and gig posters to transport you back to his hedonistic heyday. Directed by Los Angeles artist Kii Arens, the video is a perfect accompaniment to the gloriously uptempo, soulful stomper of a track, which plays over the movie’s credits. The video premiered today on MTVU and MTV Live and can be seen throughout the day. Watch the clip here.

The song is taken from ‘Rocketman: Music From The Motion Picture’ (out now on Interscope Records), which sees celebrated producer and composer Giles Martin re-interpreting and re-imagining Elton’s iconic hits, tailoring the music specifically to support the narrative of the major motion picture, with a truly show stopping vocal performance from ROCKETMAN lead actor Taron Egerton. ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ is co-produced by Giles Martin and Greg Kurstin. ‘Rocketman: Music From The Motion Picture’ is available now.

Tasked with taking Elton’s unparalleled back catalogue and reimagining it to fit the film’s narrative, ‘Rocketman: Music From The Motion Picture’ producer Giles Martin worked closely with the filmmakers, supervising all of the music for the production and pulling a vocal masterclass from Taron in the studio. From transforming ‘Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting’ into an epic ensemble piece, to morphing ‘I Want Love’ into a heart-breaking moment of conflict around little Reggie’s family meal, each track has been sculpted to form a unique part of the narrative of this most incredible of stories. The album is produced by Giles Martin (except ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ co-produced by Giles Martin and Greg Kurstin) and was recorded between 2017 and 2019 at Abbey Road Studios and AIR Studios in London. Executive Album Producers are Elton John, David Furnish, Matthew Vaughn and Dexter Fletcher.

Paramount Pictures presents, in association with New Republic Pictures, A Marv Films/Rocket Pictures production ROCKETMAN, an epic musical fantasy about the incredible human story of Elton John’s breakthrough years. In cinemas now, the film follows the fantastical journey of transformation from shy piano prodigy Reginald Dwight into international superstar Elton John. This inspirational story – set to Elton John’s most beloved songs and performed by star Taron Egerton – tells the universally relatable story of how a small-town boy became one of the most iconic figures in pop culture. Rocketman also stars Jamie Bell as Elton’s longtime lyricist and writing partner Bernie Taupin, Richard Madden as Elton’s then manager, John Reid, and Bryce Dallas Howard as Elton’s mother Sheila Farebrother. ROCKETMAN was directed by Dexter Fletcher, written by Lee Hall and produced by Matthew Vaughn, David Furnish, Adam Bohling and David Reid.

The Avett Brothers

In a letter penned by Seth Avett, Grammy Award®-nominated collective THE AVETT BROTHERS revealed today that they will be releasing their new album, Closer Than Together [American/Republic Records], on Friday, October 4, 2019. Read the mission statement for Closer Than Together here and below. The first single from the record “High Steppin’” was also released today along with its official music video.

Listen to “High Steppin’” HERE and watch the official music video HERE.

The mission statement touches on the inspiration behind the upcoming album, pulling from feelings about the current state of the world and observations reflected from the band’s own experiences. Seth Avett describes, “The last thing the world needs is another piece of sociopolitical commentary… We didn’t make a record that was meant to comment on the sociopolitical landscape that we live in. We did, however, make an album that is obviously informed by what is happening now on a grander scale all around us…because we are a part of it and it is a part of us…The Avett Brothers will probably never make a sociopolitical record. But if we did, it might sound something like this.” Read the full letter below

The video for “High Steppin’” shows Scott Avett as a “rhinestone cowboy” and Seth Avett as what some could describe as “death” as his passenger. The two ride together and encounter a stop in the road where Bob Crawford and steppers are waiting for them. In a spoken word interlude Seth Avett notes that “you can only live one day at a time, only drive one hot rod at a time, only say one word at a time, only think one thought at a time….” A meaningful commentary on life that finishes with a hopeful ending.

Heralding the album’s impending arrival, THE AVETT BROTHERS continue on a string of tour dates throughout the year including three sold out nights at Red RocksThe Greek Theatre in Los Angeles (August 22nd), and performances at BonnarooMountain Jam, and more. Not to mention their recently announced (and sold out) The Avett Brothers at the Beach four night festival in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, February 27-March 2nd.  See their full tour dates here: www.theavettbrothers.com/tour

MISSION STATEMENT: CLOSER THAN TOGETHER 

The last thing the world needs is another piece of sociopolitical commentary. We, as a species that boasts at least some semblance of consciousness, are entering an odd new form of fatigue: one that encompasses not only our observance of the behavior of others (nefarious and otherwise), but also our seemingly unlimited endurance to loudly judge and wax philosophically about it. Of course, in each instance, regardless of its nature or circumstance, our own personal opinions are presented as the clear, correct, and only perspective on any given subject. We speak as if we are not one body, though we are. We judge as if we don’t value the judgment of others upon us, though we do. We forget to put our feet into the shoes of our neighbor, and curse them for making the same ancient mistake. 

My brother and I have never been more aware of our own failings in the department of golden-rule navigation. We see it in ourselves and we are accustomed to seeing it in our neighborhood, our state, our country, our planet. We speak daily with each other about the lunacy of the world in which we live… the beauty of it, the mystery of it, the hilarity and the unspeakable calamity of it. We talk about God and community and evil and what forgiveness is and what it means to aim for unconditional love in a land (and body) full of conditions. Sometimes we feel better just from speaking about it with a loved one. Sometimes we don’t and we go to our little bunks on the tour bus and continue to process the latest example of fear-inducing news that our phones have indiscriminately handed us. We then simultaneously endeavor to forgive ourselves for being in the fortunate position of having bunks in a tour bus to lie down on. In whatever way we process both personal and universally-affecting events, at some point, these conversations grow melodies and find themselves stepping back into our lives in the forms of songs. 

As our records tend to be, the newest – entitled ‘Closer Than Together’ – is certainly led by the personal narrative of our own lives. In this way, there is no massive departure from our continued artistic language. This chapter however, perhaps in part because of our age or our time, wanders inevitably into hallways both social and political. These are songs developed through and inspired by not only what we see inside our homes and our travels, but by the connections we are blessed to nourish, the conversations by which we are surprised and intrigued, and by the far-reaching experiences of our distant brothers and sisters. We are family men with good and evil in our hearts, and the pains and joys in this world are mirrored on the small scale of our own personal existence. The songs herein are reflections of what we are. ‘We’ meaning Scott and me. ‘We’ meaning this family and this band. ‘We’ meaning the strangers we’ve had (and will have) the honor of encountering all over the world. ‘We’ meaning ‘We the People’.

We didn’t make a record that was meant to comment on the sociopolitical landscape that we live in. We did, however, make an album that is obviously informed by what is happening now on a grander scale all around us…because we are a part of it and it is a part of us. ‘Closer Than Together’ is a record of obvious American origin – a creation that fittingly could only come about through hard work, measured freedom, awe-inspiring landscapes, and perfectly flawed individualism. 

The Avett Brothers will probably never make a sociopolitical record. But if we did, it might sound something like this. 

 -Seth Avett (Summer 2019)

The Avett Brothers made mainstream waves with their 2009 major label debut, I and Love and You, landing at No. 16 on the Billboard Top 200 and garnering critical acclaim. 2012 saw The Carpenter hit No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 and was followed by Magpie and the Dandelion (2013) which debuted at No. 5 on Billboard’s Top 200 and saw the band appear twice on Jimmy Kimmel Live! True Sadness (2016) achieved The Avett Brothers’ highest career debut to date hitting No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart, No. 1 Top Rock Albums Chart, No. 1 Digital Albums Chart, No. 3 on Billboard Top 200, and scoring two GRAMMY®nominations. In the same year, the band was inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame. In 2017, the band released their critically acclaimed documentary May It Last: A Portrait of The Avett Brothers, which was co-directed by Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio. The film followed the band as they wrote their GRAMMY® nominated album True Sadness. The film was released theatrically and on HBO to rave reviews and critical acclaim and will be available on DVD/Blue-Ray in June 2019 (available for pre-order now). In November 2018, the band headlined the concert for Hurricane Florence Relief in Greenville, North Carolina, raising $325,000 to help those affected by Hurricane Florence. Coming soon Swept Away – a new musical inspired by and featuring the music of The Avett Brothers – will have its world premiere at Berkeley Repertory Theatre in June 2020. Recently, they released three new songs “Roses and Sacrifice,” “Trouble Letting Go” and “Neapolitan Sky” in anticipation for new music in 2019.

Yizzy

Swiftly following the release of his massive new project ‘Welcome To Grime Street’, Lewisham MC Yizzy reveals a new video for ‘Noticing Me Now’.

A unique track from the EP, this is the first to feature vocals by London artist Elshay and lyrically takes a moment to document Yizzy’s battle to be heard as an artist. The video symbolises this with a nightmarish hospital scene in which Yizzy’s restrained on an operating table by apocalyptic figures.

 “Noticing Me Now is that special tune I never expected to make. My EP tracklist was done for ages, I took a song off to make room for this song instead. Listen to the song to find out why.”

Having dropped on 7th June as part of the ‘Welcome To Grime Street’ EP on DMY / Livin Legendz, Yizzy celebrated over the weekend with two huge performances at Field Day – where he marked the start of festival season by headlining the Dr. Martens Boot Room Stage – and Parklife, performing for the Reprezent Radio Stage.

The project is also being supported by some of the most influential artists and tastemakers such as Wiley, Logan Sama, Sian Anderson and Charlie Sloth – who invited him in for the long awaited and massively impressive Fire In The Booth debut – shortly after putting on a landmark debut headline show at the O2 Academy2 Islington in May.

With his first full project since 2018’s ‘S.O.S’ EP, Yizzy has returned with a hard statement of intent that delivers everything you want from a grime project in 2019. With millions of streams online and currently featuring as the cover artist for Spotify’s flagship Grime Shutdown playlist, and with 100’s of spins from UK radio and praise from the likes of BBC, Guardian, Red Bull, NME, Complex, FACT, i-D, Clash and more in the past two months alone, Yizzy is surely set to blow…

Volbeat

Today multi-platinum Danish rock band Volbeat debut the music video for their new song “Last Day Under The Sun,” from their upcoming album Rewind, Replay, Rebound. The video was directed by Jakob Printzlau, who has previously directed Volbeat’s videos for “The Devil’s Bleeding Crown,” “Lonesome Rider” “16 Dollars” and “Cape Of Our Hero.” Michael Poulsen, guitarist and lead singer for the band, reveals that the lyrics for the song were inspired by a book about Johnny Cash: “When I read his book, he went through tough times with alcohol and drugs… He walked into a cave to lay down to die. But he wakes up and feels like he has been given a second chance.” Watch the video for “Last Day Under The Sun” here. Check out “Last Day Under The Sun”here.

Volbeat will release their seventh album Rewind, Replay, Rebound, on August 2nd via Republic Records. For the album, Volbeat— Michael Poulsen (guitars/vocals), Rob Caggiano (guitars), Kaspar Boye Larsen (bass), and Jon Larsen (drums) —build upon the distinct, psychobilly, punk-tinged rock ‘n’ roll sound they are known for, while reaching for new creative summits. “The whole point for us going into the studio, is because you still have something to prove — not just for the fans, but mostly for yourself,” says Poulsen. “We would not be able to do this record if it wasn’t for the work we have done in the past. No matter how old the band gets or how many records we do, there is always going to be that signature sound.” Rewind, Replay, Rebound is available for pre-order on all formats here, including a 2 CD deluxe edition, a special deluxe edition box set, and transparent and blue colored vinyl, numbered and limited to 1,000 copies each.

At this point in their already storied career, Volbeat have opened for Metallica, Motorhead and Slipknot, garnered a 2014 Best Metal Performance Grammy nomination for “Room 24” and won multiple Danish Music Awards. For this album, they mine their own personal histories and that of their genre. The song “When We Were Kids” finds Volbeat ruminating on immortality and innocence we all naively experience in our youth, while “Rewind the Exit” and “Die to Live” both explore how the pursuit of perfection can be a hollow goal.

Rewind, Replay, Rebound was produced by long-time collaborator Jacob Hansen and co-produced by Rob Caggiano and Michael Poulsen. This marks the first studio album with Kaspar Boye Larsen on bass. To achieve the album’s sound the band also drew upon a myriad of guests including backing vocalist Mia Maja and the Harlem Gospel Choir, who both return after appearing on 2016’s Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie. Clutch vocalist Neil Fallon is featured on “Die to Live,” a collaboration that is the result of the bands touring together and a love for the singer’s gruff and powerful style. Raynier Jacob Jacildo (piano) and Doug Corocran (saxophone) of JD McPherson’s band also lend their talents to the song. “Cheapside Sloggers” features a ripping guitar solo by Exodus and Slayer guitarist Gary Holt. Ultimately, Volbeat have not lost their passion to create and progress. It’s that which keeps them hungry — and musically honest on the new album.

The band has also announced the first leg of the Rewind, Replay, Rebound World Tour, with support from Baroness & Danko Jones. This tour will find the band performing in cities including London, Madrid, Berlin, Hamburg and Stockholm (full dates below) and tickets for all dates are on sale now here.

The band has previously announced that they will join Slipknot on their extensive Knotfest Roadshow North American Tour as special guests, alongside Gojira and Behemoth. The 29-date tour will kick off July 26th in Mountain View, CA with additional stops in Salt Lake City, Phoenix, and Austin (full dates below).  Tickets for these dates are on sale now here.

VOLBEAT emerged from Copenhagen in 2001. Since then, they’ve tirelessly clawed their way to hard rock’s upper echelon with endless touring and a string of six beloved full-length albums. Recently, their 2010 album Beyond Hell/Above Heaven, which features hit singles “A Warrior’s Call” and “Heaven Nor Hell,” received RIAA Gold Certification. 2013’s Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies bowed at #9 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release marking the highest U.S. chart entry for a Danish Act since 1997 until the band’s 2016 albumSeal The Deal & Let’s Boogie topped it by debuting at #4. Most recently the band released Let’s Boogie! Live At Telia Parken, a concert film and album documenting their landmark 2017 Copenhagen show in front of 48,250 fans, the largest show a Danish band has ever performed in Denmark.

Sum 41 “A Death In The Family”

Sum 41 have dropped an anthemic new single and music video today with the release of “A Death In The Family.” Front man Deryck Whibley delivers a warning that all bad things must come to an end. Through a balance of in your face riffs and a soaring chorus, lyrics like “Your lies will tear you apart…Your fate is left to a different generation. You know they won’t be kind” echo throughout the track. Fans can stream “A Death In The Family” today at smarturl.it/OrderInDecline
Today’s single comes from the legendary rock icons’ seventh full-length album, Order In Decline, due out July 19, 2019 via Hopeless Records. Looking back at the band’s storied 23+ year career, this record is undoubtedly Sum 41‘s heaviest and most aggressive album to date, while also being their most dynamic and raw.
Armed with the most honest and personal songs of his career, Whibley poured everything he had into the upcoming album. Producing, engineering, and mixing the album in his home studio, he pain-stakingly crafted and fine-tuned each song, highlighted by fast and full riffs, guitar solos from lead guitarist/backing vocalist Dave Brownsound, harmonious chords from guitarist Tom Thacker and the heavy, heart-thumping rhythm section of bassist/backing vocalist Cone McCaslin and drummer Frank Zummo. 
“A Death In The Family” joins previously released single “Out For Blood“, which hit #1 at Sirius XM Octane and #22 on the Active Rock Chart and has been streamed nearly 3 Million times on Spotify while the music video has been viewed over 2 Million times.
