Sam Smith & Normani’s New Video

SAM SMITH & NORMANI RELEASE OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE, “DANCING WITH A STRANGER

View “Dancing With A StrangerHere

Download/Stream Here

Today, Sam Smith & Normaniunveiled the video for their hit single, “Dancing With A Stranger.” Directed by Vaughan Arnell (James Blunt, George Michael), the clip was shot in London. Moving through a sleek, stark home, each artist confronts the empty feeling that follows a break-up and the impulse to fill the void with ephemeral connections. View “Dancing With A Stranger” HERE.

Released earlier this month by Capitol Records, “Dancing With A Stranger” has already racked up over 80 million cumulative streams worldwide. Hailing it as a “Song You Need to Know,” Rolling Stone described it as “deliciously retro” and noted, “Their soulful, understated delivery suggests a moody narrative of two people looking to get an ex off their mind, falling into the arms of someone exciting, nameless and new. Calling it “one of the first genuinely great songs of 2019.” Idolator noted, “they expertly capture the frustration and loneliness of heartbreak, bottling it and presenting it as something both deeply personal and infinitely relatable.” Out said “Dancing With A Stranger” is “a Perfect Breakup Anthem.” Entertainment Weekly observed, “Sam Smith and Normani have teamed up to soundtrack your weekend festivities.” Billboard said, “They’re a smouldering combo, and they’ve delivered something fiery with “Dancing With A Stranger.”

“Dancing With A Stranger” is the first new music from Smith in 2019 and follows his summer 2018 global hit with Calvin Harris, “Promises.” Smith will perform with Harris on February 20 at the BRIT Awards, which will be live streamed on YouTube. Already a three-time BRIT winner, Smith is nominated in the British Male Solo Artist category this year. He has won four GRAMMY awards, an Oscar, a Golden Globe, three Billboard Music Awards, a BET Award and six MOBO Awards, among others.

Since the release of his 2014 debut album, In The Lonely Hour, Smith has sold over 20 million album equivalent units worldwide. His sophomore album, The Thrill Of It All, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard200 and also topped the charts in the U.K, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands and Belgium. Rolling Stone awarded The Thrill Of It All four stars and hailed Smith as “one of the mightiest, most expressive singers of his generation.”

Normani launched her solo career last year with her debut solo single “Love Lies” with Khalid. “Love Lies” soared to #1 at Top 40 Radio and went double platinum in the U.S. “Love Lies” was the first single Normani released following her global success with multi-platinum group Fifth Harmony. Since then, she has gone on to release a number of new tracks including two songs with Calvin Harris and her recent single, “Waves” feat.6LACK. Normani has also recently collaborated with Quavo and Kehlani. She is currently working on her debut solo album. This March will see her join Ariana Grande on the North American leg of The Sweetener World tour.

Florence + the Machine Debut Two Songs

Florence + the Machine debut two new songs, “Moderation” and “Haunted House” today. Listen here.

Produced by James Ford, “Moderation” is another driving force of nature that sees Florence’s new-found confidence ride high when it comes to love and relationships.

In contrast, “Moderation” is backed by the more delicate “Haunted House.” Produced by Matthew Daniel Siskin (Gambles), it’s an open and exposing song that captures Florence’s more intimate vocal style.

Following a history-making North American tour last year, Florence returns this spring for a headlining set at Governors Ball in New York. Tickets are available here.

“Moderation” and “Haunted House” marks the first new music from Florence + the Machine since their massively acclaimed 2018 album High as Hope, nominated for the Mercury Prize and named one of the best of the year by Rolling Stone, Refinery 29, Billboard, the New York Post, Uproxx and many more.

Critical praise for High as Hope:

“This time around, her voice is stronger than ever.”—The New York Times

 “High As Hope preserves Florence’s big, torrential melodrama, but it feels less like a storm than the soft light breaking in afterward amid the sober awe of a new day…Her solitude proffers a source of power, a confidence in her ability to express herself on her own.”—NPR

“The ethereal Florence Welch is still spine-chilling in an eccentric new bundle of distinctly anthemic tracks that will have you, too, cooing haikus up to the sky.”—Entertainment Weekly

 “The most rewarding Florence and the Machine full-length yet…Florence Welch possesses a supernatural voice—the kind that can summon long-buried ghosts, and then obliterate them fully with a gale-force roar.”—SPIN

“Intent upon inspiring listeners to dare to dream and to fight through the crushing gravity of the times, to love and cherish each other.”—New York Magazine’s Vulture

PETE YORN x SCARLETT JOHANSSON

Today, Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson share the music video for their latest single “Iguana Bird.” Watch it HERE.

Directed by actress, producer, and filmmaker Bonnie Wright (best known for her role as Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter series), the clip serves as the perfect visual companion to the song. “Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johansson’s new single ‘Iguana Bird’ evoked for me that new loneliness you feel in the wake of a break up, having spent every moment with someone you now have to create new memories that feel forced and out of touch with what you know,” Wright told PAPER about the track. “I was inspired by the dance scene in Jean Luc-Godard’s film ‘Bande å part’, most particularly Anna Karina’s character, and the vulnerable beauty often explored in French cinema during the 60s. I have been an admirer of LA-based choreographer and dancer Nicola Collie for a while and it was such a joy to direct her in this enclosed world we created for the music video.”

“I have been a fan of Bonnie’s work,” Yorn says about working with Wright. “She came to us with a visual concept that really captured the emotion behind the song in an original way.”

The song remains a standout from the pair’s critically acclaimed Apart EP, available at all digital retailers now via Capitol Records. Forbes praised the “fun” track, while High Snobiety called it a “charming duet carried by a wave of crashing guitars.”

Last month, Yorn launched An Evening with Pete Yorn, the You and Me Tour. The critically acclaimed gold-certified singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist performs along the East Coast and Midwest on the intimate run. Tickets for the remaining dates, including limited edition options to purchase VIP backstage experiences where fans can meet Pete, watch soundcheck and even attend a pre-show performance of a song in the dressing room, are on sale now. Full routing can be found below and visit PeteYorn.com for more details.

Apart continues to incite applause from fans and critics alike. In an extensive feature, Entertainment Weekly claimed, “The dreamy alt-pop on the new EP demonstrates that the creative kinship between the troubadour and the movie star is much closer than you might expect.”

10/15 Columbus, OH @ A&R Music Bar
10/16 Indianapolis, IN @ HI-FI Indy

ABOUT ARIANA GRANDE
With her powerful vocals and astonishing range, Ariana Grande has emerged as one of the most magnetic and massively successful performers in pop music today. At age 24 she’s delivered three platinum-selling albums and surpassed 18 billion streams, in addition to nabbing four Grammy Award nominations and landing eight hits in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. With 2016’s critically acclaimed Dangerous Woman, Grande both boldly defies expectation and reveals the full force of her voice (recently hailed as an “extraordinary, versatile, limitless instrument” upon Grande’s appearance on Time’s “100 Most Influential People” list).

Since making her full-length debut with 2013’s Yours Truly (featuring the game-changing, triple-platinum smash “The Way”), Grande has brought her striking vocal presence to a genre-blurring breed of pop, taking on R&B, soul, and electronic music with equal nuance and assurance. Arriving in 2014, her sophomore effort, My Everything, garnered a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album and spawned the 6x-platinum hits “Problem” and “Bang Bang” (a Grammy nominee for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance). Grande embraced a more uncompromising vision than ever before in the making of Dangerous Woman. With People noting that the album “celebrates feminine might,” Entertainment Weekly praised Grande for “having something meaningful to say with that jaw-dropping voice — one of the most exquisite in pop today.” Grande wrapped up her widely lauded Dangerous Woman Tour in support of the album last year, performing 85 arena shows worldwide.

Through the years, the longtime actress and former Broadway star has proven the scope of her talent by appearing on Scream Queens and Hairspray Live! and showcased her comedic chops by hosting Saturday Night Live. With her social media following now surging past 200 million, Grande has also earned numerous accolades from the MTV Video Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, and American Music Awards (including the highly coveted Artist of the Year prize).

Ariana’s recent single “No Tears Left To Cry” debuted at #1 on iTunes in 88 countries worldwide and began the next era for her upcoming fourth full length studio album Sweetener. With the release of “Not Tears Left To Cry” she became the first artist in music history to see the lead single from her first four albums debut on the Top 10 on Billboard Hot 100. This year she has graced the prestigious magazine covers of TIME’s Next Generation Leaders, FADER, and British Vogue. The highly anticipated album, Sweetener, will be released Summer 2018.

GALLANT x GENTLEMAN

GRAMMY Award-nominated critically acclaimed singer, songwriter, and R&B iconoclast GALLANT returns with a preview track entitled “Gentleman” today. Get it HERE via Mind of A Genius/Warner Bros. Records. Watch the video HERE.

 

Representing a palpable and powerful evolution, the track conjures the spirits of late nineties and early two-thousands R&B within a sphere of cinematic production cooked up by frequent collaborator and producer Stint [Banks, Santigold]. Over a minimalist hum, the artist’s seductive and show-stopping falsetto blazes brightly and brilliantly.

 

Additionally, he unveiled a stunning music video awash in dark blue hues for “Gentleman.” Built around tight angles and extreme close-ups, the physicality of the clip evokes the single’s energy and showcases what he calls, “My take on a nineties bedroom jam.”

 

“Gentleman” is Gallant’s first release since 2016’s full-length debut, Ology, which earned a GRAMMY Award nod in the category of “Best Urban Contemporary Album” at the 2017 ceremony. Most importantly, it heralds the arrival of his anxiously awaited sophomore album, coming very soon. Keeping things personal, he even personally shared what’s to come with a fan on Twitter, allowing her to break the news.

 

Tonight, he headlines an intimate sold out performance at Public Arts in New York followed by shows at National Sawdust April 5 and the Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Cemetery April 17. 

 

Within the next weeks, he’ll uncover his first single “Doesn’t Matter,” from his forthcoming album. Stay tuned.

 

Balancing vulnerability and vitality as well as sentimentality and seduction, Gallant proved himself to be an iconoclastic presence for R&B upon emerging in 2014. His breakout debut Ology landed a GRAMMY nomination for “Best Urban Contemporary Album,” bowed in the Top 25 of the BillboardTop 200, placed on Entertainment Weekly’s “25 Best Albums of 2016 (So Far),” garnered a coveted 7.5/10 score courtesy of Pitchfork, and incited applause from The Guardian, Q, and more. Between touring with John Legend and gracing the stage at Coachella, he delivered unforgettable performances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Later with Jools Holland, and NBC’s Today, to name a few. Impressively, the single clocked over 33 million Spotify streams and counting. With all of these accolades, he laid the foundation to make a big and bold statement with his forthcoming second offering.

Fashion trends in 2018

Fashion and Social media influencer Urszula Makowska is a fashionable New Yorker with over 116k followers on Instagram. She was invited to almost every event of the New York Fashion Week. Urszula is influencing others with her fashion style and at this occasion, she had an interview that revealed what the fashion trends are of 2018, as seen at the NYFW.

As a fashion blogger, what were you looking forward to seeing in New York Fashion week?

The most exciting time of the year for bloggers is always fashion week. This time of the year is the busiest for us. We plan our outfits and the events we will attend in advance. We work hard to coordinate everything to perfection including travel and hotel stays.

Personally, I love fashion week. For me, it is extremely exciting. I am a fashion addict and I love to attend shows and presentations to view the upcoming trends for the next seasons. I love to see what designers have created for the upcoming seasons. It is all a work of art and a way to express yourself. Then I love to share the upcoming trends with my followers and readers. During this F/W 2018 New York Fashion Week, I was super excited to attend my shows since I officially received over 40 invitations, and this included some of the big designers from Badgley Mischka to BCBG Maxazria. I was extremely proud of myself to have the ability to attend my shows and presentations. It has shown me how far I came into my career as a blogger. I was also looking forward to not only attending the shows and events, but also seeing friends who were flying into New York City, networking, meeting other bloggers, and working together with photographers to take photos of my looks.

Why is it important for a fashion blogger to attend Fashion Week?

Fashion week is extremely important for any fashion blogger and fashion influencer. Now-in-days, we bloggers and influencers hold the power to influencing and generating sales. We dominate the market and this directly means that we always have to be on top of the upcoming trends. Followers and readers look up to us as having the knowledge of our niche and market. They know us as the experts for getting style inspiration or simply buying what we are wearing or using. Fashion week allows us to keep up with the upcoming trends. We are able to see what products will be hot for the next season and how they can be styled. We are able to see the new trends before anyone else and we are able to introduce these new innovations to our followers and readers.

Aside from that, attending fashion week is also important to us in terms of networking. By attending these events, we are meeting people constantly. These people may be bloggers, editors, or photographers. We have the ability to form a relationship and partner together in the future. I know I personally have met a lot of people this season and I created strong friendships with them. We are always working together and supporting one another. At the end of the day, this only benefits you.

What was your best event so far from NYFW and why?

The best event from NYFW for me was going backstage with Aveda for Tibi. I personally love Tibi and have always wanted to attend one of their shows. Tibi’s fashion shows are extremely popular. A lot of bloggers always want to attend Tibi’s show. Luckily, I was able to go backstage with Aveda since I have a strong relationship with Aveda as one of their influencers. I was able to see the full on hair trends, hair tips, hair inspirations, makeup trends, makeup inspirations, and looks beforehand. I was extremely happy to see everything beforehand, but to learn a lot myself. I was happy to network and see my Aveda family.

Which look was your favorite look that you wore to NYFW?

One of my favorite looks for the shows was the classic Chanel themed look I went for from the S/S 2018 show. I bought a cute classic Zara dress and jacket that looked similar to the Chanel vibes from their S/S 2018 show. I layered a lilac turtleneck under the dress and paired it off with Kanye West Tubular shoes.

Which fashion trends are going to be popular this year according to NYFW?

There are a lot of upcoming trends that I saw during the F/W 2018/2019 shows that I am looking forward to.

Currently plaid is in, but don’t worry, it is not leaving anywhere anytime soon. For the upcoming seasons, we will see plaid like never before. It will be bolder than ever. We will be making statements in plaid. Plaid in saturated hues such as hot pink will be hotter than ever. During NYFW plenty of designers showcased plaid suits in hot pink and they were incredible.

Regarding outerwear, puffers, fur, and trench coats will be in trend. They will be more dramatic than ever. They will catch anyone’s eyes. We saw puffers on the runway in bright hues and extremely oversized. That is how we will see them in the fall and winter. Fur jackets were seen in bright colors from yellow to red. Trench coats were seen in leopard prints everywhere during NYFW.

One new trend that was introduced the new crop top silhouette. This top is a part bathing suit, part sports bra, and part strapless bra with underwire. It was seen a lot on the runway and will be extremely popular.

In terms of color trends, red and hot pink will be the hottest colors of the season. We saw bright pink everywhere on the runway from tops to shoes. We also saw red dominate from head to toe. The most exciting part is that the combination of pink and red will be extremely popular. Most designers used a combination of both of their pieces.

What is your personal favorite trend from NYFW?

One of my personal favorite trends will be tea length floral dresses. During the shows, these dresses were paired with cute booties. I am a big fan of booties and floral prints. I find this trend to be extremely chic, but casual. It is perfect for any person to easily put together for any occasion.

Liz Huett

Interscope singer-songwriter Liz Huett releases a rendition of Tom Petty’s   “You Don’t Know How It Feels” today, January 19th, via all digital retailers – http://smarturl.it/YDKHIF“You Don’t Know How It feels” is a tribute to the late musician who Huett credits with inspiring her to make music.   Listen to “You Don’t Know How It feels” HERE.

“Covering a song by your hero is intimidating, to say the least,” says Huett.   “But I was willing to take the risk because both he and this song mean so much to me.  I wanted to honor Tom in my own way because his excellent artistry is a huge part of what inspired me to make music in the first place.”

“You Don’t Know How It Feels” is produced by Steve Solomon and follows the release of “H8U” and “STFU & Hold Me,” two songs that  were released to critical praise with Entertainment Weekly  stating “Huett mixes the melodies and storytelling of country music with the slick production and hooks of pop.”

Huett grew up in Riverside, California, with her ear glued to the radio, listening to everything from pop acts like Tom Petty and Pink, to ’90s country superstars. Not long after she decided to move to Nashville to pursue her music career, she was hired as a backing vocalist for Taylor Swift, with whom she toured for three and a half years. With Swift’s blessing, she decided to come off the road and throw herself into writing her own music. Huett quickly lined up a publishing deal with Warner Chappell, began writing songs, and worked on developing her eclectic pop sound. Now signed to Interscope Records, Huett delivers her songs with a genuine vulnerability that makes her work appealingly relatable. Huett is currently working on her debut album.
