Damian Marley x Living It Up

DAMIAN MARLEY “LIVING IT UP” VISUAL AVAILABLE NOW EXCLUSIVELY ON TIDAL

Today, Damian “Jr Gong” Marley premiered the music video for his impassioned single “Living It Up” off his GRAMMY Award-winning fourth studio album, Stony Hill, exclusively on global music and entertainment platform, TIDAL.

 

In the visual, Marley takes his son back to his hometown in Jamaica to share the culture of where his father Bob Marley grew up and where reggae music was born, as well as the parallel between his upbringing and where he is now.

 

The video was directed by Gil Green, and filmed in Trenchtown, Stony Hill and Port Antonio, Jamaica.

 

“If I have to pick a single track that represents the theme of the album overall, I would say it is probably Living It Up, it represents my history. It comes down to where my father is coming from and where my mother is coming from, it’s not likely that people from these two worlds meet up like that on a regular basis and have children. That whole journey, I think is an inspiring story in itself” says Marley about the track.

 

Previously, the TIDAL artist-owner collaborated with the platform to debut the visuals for “Speak Life,” “Stony Hill to Addis” DocumentaryTIDAL X: High Times, a 4/20 celebration. “Medication“, “Nail Pon Cross” as well as performed during TIDAL’s annual charity concert in 2016, TIDAL X: 1020.

 

 

TIDAL’s commitment to connecting fans with their favorite musicians has spanned dozens of livestreams, thousands of ticket giveaways, and an extensive array of exclusive content – including: TIDAL X Brooklyn, the annual star studded benefit concert; TIDAL X livestreams from Chance the Rapper, Ty Dolla $ign, Alicia Keys and more; exclusive album premieres such as Beyonce’s LEMONADE and Rihanna’s ANTI; unique content including 21 Savage’s 30 Days with 21 Savage, Rick Ross‘ album annotations and more!

SOUTHERN HALO’s JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES

 SOUTHERN HALO‘s story arc expands with the April 27 release of their latest CD, the concept-driven, dream-inspired JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES. This 14-track package, produced by Catt Gravitt and Gerald O’Brien, mirrors the emotional and musical growth of Natalia, Hannah and Christina Morris, the three sisters from the Mississippi Delta who form SOUTHERN HALO.

 

 

Inspired by a dream of Natalia’s, JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES features 10 songs written or co-written by the lead vocalist/guitarist, and four titles from Music City’s hottest tunesmiths. The catchy ode to the glories of Southern womanhood, “Southern Halo,” kicks off the project and marks the first “scene” of this movie-made-music.  A co-write with Roxie Dean, the strong, multi-layered vocals and sing-along chorus make this a natural choice for the first “instant gratification track” offered with each  iTunes and Amazon pre-order of the CD.  The disc is the second outing for the trio with SESAC’s 2012 Writer of the Year Catt Gravitt (Kelly Clarkson, Jake Owen) and Gerald O’Brien (Martina McBride, Trace Adkins) at the helm.

AQUILO “SILENT MOVIES”

SOPHOMORE ALBUM ii DUE FOR RELEASE ON MAY 4

  

Global streaming star Aquilo today release their new single “Silent Movies”. The new single follows 2017’s “I Could Fight On A Wall” and “Thin” from ii (Side A), the first half of their highly-anticipated second album. Aquilo also announce today that ii will be released in totality on May 4th and is available to preorder in CD and vinyl formats.

   

In November 2017, Aquilo made the bold decision to split their second album into two parts, releasing the first five-tracks of ii as the ii (Side A) EP. Aquilo are truly stars of the streaming age, with their tracks consistently amassing over a million streams. ii continues Aquilo’s progression from bedroom-based laptop producers to constant, inimitable innovators, and with two sold out London shows under their belts and a sixteen-date European tour to come, Aquilo are undoubtedly set for a massive 2018.

 

Hailing from the UK Lake District, Tom Higham and Ben Fletcher first introduced themselves as Aquilo in 2014 with their larger than life cinematic sound, and have since released three EPs and debut album “Silhouettes”, produced by highly regarded Icelandic producer Ólafur Arnalds and the ever brilliant SOHN. With tracks “Silhouette”, “Sorry”, “You There”, “Losing You” and “Never Hurt Again” gaining well over 110 million plays on Spotify alone. Aquilomade their U.S. television debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers in March 2017.
