“DEF JAM PUTS A SPOTLIGHT ON IT’S RISING ROSTER WITH ‘UNDISPUTED’ GRAMMY WEEK STUDIO SESSION” – BILLBOARD

New Release by Gabi Demartino

From recently making headlines by appearing in Ariana Grande’s viral “Thank U, Next” video to being a bonafide influencer with over 13.2M combined followers, Gabi Demartino will release her most personal song yet in time for Valentine’s Day. Her new single  Cold Room releasing February 14th, 2019, will allow her massive fan base to see her in a completely different light.

Gabi Speaking About the Meaning of “Cold Room”

“Cold Room” is a song I wrote 3 years ago while I was forming unfamiliar feelings for a friend. I knew it was more than a friend but never wanted to confront the situation because I was afraid the feelings weren’t mutual. I  never wanted to cross the line and ruin the friendship. I decided to release this song now, because it came on shuffle in my car while driving through a blizzard on the east coast. It is the most relatable, confident, upbeat love ballad that I have ever written and thought maybe it could help a few relationships blossom this Valentine’s Day. I want this track to help people in similar situations. Hopefully this song can send shivers down some spines and chill some veins. Pun- intended!

February 21, 2019 — (Santa Monica, CA) — The video for the recently released song from Yungblud & Halsey feat. Travis Barker – 11 Minutes (Locomotion / Geffen Records) is available HERE.

The video, directed by award-winning filmmaker Colin Tilley, explores the emotional stages of grief and loss to tell the story of 11 Minutes.  “We don’t realise how much we need something until it’s taken away from us,” says Yungblud.  “We are so distracted and focused on what’s next, we can fail to see what is actually in front of us.”

Evan Konrad Shares Debut Single

Singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Evan Konrad uncovers his debut single “The Long Way Out” today.

Get it HERE via LAVA/Republic Records.

An unpredictable anthem teetering between manic energy and cathartic falsetto, the track invites listeners into the artist’s handcrafted sonic world. Produced and performed by Konrad, “The Long Way Out” hinges on an airy beat, haunting vocals, and a seesawing chant—“We take the long way out.”

On the track Konrad noted: “The Long Way Out is a journey through the act of letting go, and how romanticized it can be throughout the grieving process. Unable to accept the changes within ourselves, or the changes in another person, as we reach for a connection that no longer exists. I wrote this song to acknowledge and work through this within myself. I want this song to be a beacon of light for anyone who is looking for the same liberation I sought after.”

This is just the beginning for Konrad. He’s set to unveil more music throughout 2019 in addition to launching his first proper tour.

Born and raised in Abbotsford, BC Canada, Konrad devoted his entire life to crafting music. Growing up in a house where creativity would be encouraged at every turn, he spent countless hours writing songs and producing. Following stints in the studio and on the road with other artists, he locked himself away in the studio and commenced work on what would become his forthcoming debut. With nothing more than a few songs on his private SoundCloud link, he caught the attention of LAVA founder Jason Flom who signed him on the spot upon listening to his music, because of the downright mind-blowing songcraft. The best way to describe the music would be Thom Yorke translating Christopher Nolan’s Memento into songs, and even that only scratches the surface.

Lewis Capaldi’s Debut Album

Lewis Capaldi will release his debut album — Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent – on May 17th via Capitol Records.  The 22-year-old Scottish singer-songwriter also announced plans for a U.S. June tour and recently shared the official video for his new single, “Someone You Loved,” which stars Scottish actor Peter Capaldi, who portrayed the Twelfth Doctor in the iconic British television show “Dr. Who” and is a distant cousin of Lewis. 

The video, which can be viewed HERE, amassed over one million views in four days and trended on YouTube, hitting #2. “Someone You Loved” and Peter Capaldi also trended on Twitter on the day of release.

In an open, heartfelt letter, Lewis Capaldi explains: 

I’m absolutely buzzing to finally be able to announce my debut album. I never thought I’d get to the point where I’d be able to release a proper album and I ABSOLUTELY never thought that when I did, I would give it a name as stupid I have, but here we are.

Everyone always tells you about how amazing recording their first album was and how they’ll always look back on the ‘process’ with fond memories. I will look back on it as an extremely stressful time that somehow also managed to be extremely boring. The actual process of building the songs up I loved, but recording the same guitar parts over and over again to get them right and going back on mixes for weeks, I did not.

I hope people don’t think it’s shit. I mean don’t get me wrong there will be one or two stinkers on there, but I’m only human and we all make mistakes, but as a whole I think it’s pretty fucking good.

I’m excited for it to be released and have people finally be able to hear a full body of work from me for the first time. Should it bomb completely or receive an absolute critical lambasting, don’t worry, it’s just my life’s work up until this point….

His U.S. tour, which kicks off on June 1st at The Sinclair in Boston, will include a June 4th show at New York City’s Irving Plaza. It will wrap up at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles on June 12th. Fans who make a purchase at Capaldi’s online store  http://shop.lewiscapaldi.com before 7:00 PM ET on Thursday, February 21st, will receive a code for an exclusive ticket pre-sale, which begins at 10:00 AM local time on Wednesday, February 20th. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, February 22nd, at 10:00 AM local time at http://www.lewiscapaldi.com. See below for itinerary. Capaldi, who is currently opening for Bastille on the band’s European tour, will kick off his biggest U.K. headline tour to date on November 22nd.

Fans who pre-order Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, available at all digital partners, will instantly receive “Someone You Loved” plus the previously released “Grace,”  Bruises,” “Lost on You” and “Fade.” A CD box set featuring colored vinyl with metallic cover, sunglasses and Lewis calendar is now available exclusively at http://shop.lewiscapaldi.com

Worldwide streams of “Someone You Loved” have topped 60 million while cumulative global streams of all Capaldi’s songs now exceed 400 million. Idolator predicted, “Lewis Capaldi’s ‘Someone You Loved’ Is Going To Be Big…It goes without saying that he’s One To Watch.”  Directed by Phil Beastall – known for the short viral film Love is a Gift – the “Someone You Loved” video heightens awareness of the need for organ donors. For more information about organ donation, visit https://livelifegivelife.org.uk.

Recorded over an 18-month period in London, New York and Los Angeles, Capaldi co-wrote each of the 12 songs, working with Malay who also produced, (Frank Ocean, Lorde) Jamie Hartman (Calvin Harris, Rag N Bone Man) and TMS. Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent is an ironically titled, but charismatically defining album that’s lyrically candid and a realistic snapshot of the ups and downs of growing up. Lewis’ stunningly identifiable voice, coupled with its turbulent themes of love, loss and heartache, make it a debut album that is both poignant and unequivocally relatable.

Capaldi was hailed as a 2018 Vevo DSCVR Artist To Watch, longlisted for the BBC Sound Of 2018 Poll, and won Breakthrough Artist of the Year honors at the Scottish Music Awards. He is among the Top 350 most listened to artists on Spotify. Capaldi has toured with Rag’n’Bone ManNiall Horan, and Sam Smith, and performed at such festivals as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Firefly, Mountain Jam, Splendour in the Grass, Fuji, and Osheaga. He was recently nominated for the BRIT Awards 2019 Critics’ Choice award and named an MTV UK PUSH Ones To Watch artist.  TIME said, “Lewis Capaldi has the kind of deep, textured voice that you could listen to for hours. He finds expressive rough edges, then smooths them out into the sweetest of notes.”

NETSKY Releases “I Don’t Even Know You Anymore”

Today, award-winning globally renowned electronic music producer NETSKY releases the brand-new single “I Don’t Even Know You Anymore” ft. Bazzi & Lil Wayne via Republic Records and Casablanca Records.

Listen HERE.

About the release, NETSKY said, “As soon as I heard Bazzi’s topline I knew it was special. We ended up doing a few different versions of the song before we found the production that felt perfect. It turns out it had always been a dream of both of ours to work with Lil Wayne and we couldn’t think of anyone we’d rather have to jump on the track and complete the song. I’m excited for the world to hear what we’ve done together.”

“I Don’t Even Know You Anymore” is the third installment from forthcoming Palmtrees & Powerlines, the two-part project that explores both NETSKY’s magnetic brand of pop music (on Palmtrees) and his genre-bending innovation as a creator of club tracks (on Powerlines).  Each song from Palmtrees & Powerlines will find a place within one of these two worlds NETSKY has built.  “I Don’t Even Know You Anymore” continues to build upon Palmtrees, alongside the previously released “Téquila Limonada” feat. A.CHAL.  While last fall NETSKY released “Ice Cold” with David Guetta, which finds its home in Powerlines.

NETSKY closed out an exciting 2018 by releasing Abbot Kinney EP, which featured five new songs with collaborations from Stargate and 1991, as well as features from KyleToulouse, and Jozzy.

Stay tuned for more to come from Palmtrees & Powerlines.
