COMMON TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM LET LOVE

GRAMMY® Award-winning rapper COMMON will release his new album Let Love on August 30, 2019, his debut for Loma Vista Recordings.

Pre-order it HERE.

In tandem with this announcement, he shared his latest single and music video entitled “Hercules” [feat. Swizz Beatz]. On the track, he serves up his sharp signature wordplay between soulful backing vocals from Swizz Beatz. Meanwhile, the music video directed by Carrick [Weezer] sees Common thwart a convenience store robbery caught on surveillance camera—in between rapping into his iPhone. Vince Staples makes a cameo as the cashier.

Watch the action unfold HERE.

“Hercules” follows on the heels of the recent single “HER Love” featuring Daniel Caesar, special guest Dwele, and an unreleased beat from J Dilla. Not only did the song amass over 1 million cumulative streams and 339K views on the Savanah Leaf-directed music video within a week, but it also received widespread critical acclaim. VIBE called the song “a State of the Rap Union as he addresses the rise and expansion of hip-hop throughout the past 25 years.” Rolling Stone added that it was “Common’s homage to hip-hop”, and OkayPlayer professed that it’s “his most impactful body of work yet.”

About the album, he shared, “This album is inspired by the book, “Let Love Have The Last Word” which gave me a path to write about things I had never written about before. It forced me to go deeper and because I opened up about so many things in the book, I was charged to go to raw, personal and spiritual places in the music. Production-wise, I knew that the music had to have depth, soul and dimension to it. I wanted the musicianship and the spirit of what live music brings, but it also had to have something raw and basement about it. When my team said, “You should do some music revolving around the book,” I just took that energy and went running into my artistry without focusing on anything else. No movies, no commercials, no parties (well, I don’t do that too much anyway) and I just worked on music. So this album is the culmination of this journey, this passion and this Divine Love that I have for one of GOD’s greatest gifts – MUSIC.”

COMMON will kick off his Let Love Tour, which starts in Denver, Colorado at Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom tonight, and continues through marquee venues in the US and Canada before touring Europe for the first time since 2014. Special guests include Nicole Bus, July 11 –July 26, and Maimouna Youssef aka Mumu Fresh, August 7 – August 29. Each pair of tickets on the second leg of tour dates will come with new music—details to be emailed to ticket holders.

The Score Releases “Pressure” EP

Today, critically acclaimed, buzzing LA based, New York born rock band The Score –  Eddie Anthony and Edan Dover – release their much-anticipated new Pressure EP via Republic Records.

Check out The Score’s Pressure EP HERE.

The six-song collection kicks off with the new single “Dreamin” [feat. Blackbear] which Billboard described as a “…thunderous synth-pop sound.. over an Imagine Dragons-esque melody.” The Score spring from hyper-charged verses into a hypnotically hard-hitting hook just before Blackbear weaves together an unforgettable cameo of his own. The EP also boasts the fan favorites such as “The Fear” and “Glory” as well as the 2018 hit “Stronger,” which has clocked over 30 million streams and 21 million-plus views for its music video to date. Check out the full tracklisting below.

On the EP and new single “Dreamin” the band noted: “Dreamin” represents an evolution sonically for us. This song in particular and the rest of the PRESSURE EP was about pushing our boundaries as artists and dealing with the insecurities that come with that. It was one of the scariest times for us creatively because we knew we wanted to grow and not fit in a box but naturally we were fighting our own doubts about getting out of our comfort zone. This EP really encompasses what we we’ve been going through and I think Blackbear is someone who related to that and therefore fit really naturally on top of the foundation we laid. We love what he did and what he brings to this song.”

Writing at a Hollywood and Vine spot, they joined forces with a bevy of high-profile collaborators, JT Daly [K. Flay], Heavy [Dirty Heads, Saint Motel, Sleeping with Sirens], Adam Hawkins [Twenty-One Pilots, Muse], and Dave Bassett [Elle King, Vance Joy] and shocked that vision to life.

New York-born and Los Angeles-based duo The Score stand out as a fiery genre-defying phenomenon, incinerating the lines between rock, pop, indie, and electronic. Powered by ubiquitous anthems such as “Oh My Love,” “Legend,” and “Unstoppable,” the boys racked up nearly 800 million cumulative streams within three years’ time over the course of two EPs—Unstoppable and Myths & Legends—and a 2017 full-length debut, ATLAS. As they ignited venues across North America, in addition their music has been used in campaigns for Jeep, NBA, and beyond.
