FROM THE PRODUCER OF LA LA LAND AND WRITER/DIRECTOR MAX MINGHELLA, TEEN SPIRIT WILL BE IN THEATRES THIS APRIL

On April 5, Interscope Records will release Teen Spirit Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. In the film – which screened last night at the 2019 SXSW Film Festival and opens in April – Elle Fanning plays Violet, a shy teenager who dreams of escaping her small town and pursuing her passion to sing. With the help of an unlikely mentor, she enters a local singing competition that will test her integrity, talent and ambition. Making his directorial debut, Max Minghella creates a modern fairytale, scored to a lush pop soundtrack.

Elle Fanning’s soaring rendition of the iconic Robyn song “Dancing On My Own,” was released today along with the first official clip. Listen HERE and view the video HERE. Individuals can pre-order the album commencing today.

The 14-track collection also includes Fanning’s covers of songs by such preeminent female artists as Ellie Goulding (“Lights”), Annie Lennox (“Little Bird”), Tegan and Sara (“I Was A Fool”) and Sigrid (“Don’t Kill My Vibe”) plus “Wildflowers,” a new song written by Carly Rae Jepsen and Jack Antonoff. Fanning is joined by cast members on “Good Time,” which was a 2x Platinum hit for Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen. Clara Rugaard, who plays a fellow contestant, covers “Tattooed Heart,” a song from Ariana Grande’s 2013 album, Yours Truly. The original versions of No Doubt’s “Just A Girl,” Grimes’ “Genesis” and Major Lazer’s “Lean On” feat. MØ & DJ Snake also appear on the soundtrack.

Fanning put months of work into preparing for the role, working closely with executive music producer Marius de Vries and performing all the singing live. In addition to de Vries, the team assembled by Berger included music supervisor Steven Gizicki and music co-producer Eldad Guetta, who had also worked with the Berger on La La Land. (The La La Land soundtrack, released by Interscope Records in 2016, won a GRAMMY® Award.)

Teen Spirit stars Elle Fanning (The Beguiled, 20th Century Women), Zlatko Buric (Pusher, 2012) and Rebecca Hall (Christine, The Gift). Directed and written by Max Minghella (The Social Network, “The Handmaid’s Tale”) and produced by Fred Berger (La La Land, Destroyer).

DJ Snake ft. Selena Gomez, Ozuna & Cardi B

The official video for “Taki Taki” by DJ Snake featuring Selena Gomez, Ozuna, and Cardi B, directed by Colin Tilley, is out now. A sneak peak of the video first aired tonight in a commercial spot in partnership with YouTube Music during the American Music Awards.

Watch the video HERE.

Currently the most-streamed song in the world on Spotify for a week straight now, “Taki Taki” marks the second global number one record for the French DJ/producer (his first being “Lean On” ft. , his 2015 collaboration with Major Lazer), and a first number one for Selena Gomez, Ozuna, and Cardi B, who is the first female rapper to top the chart.

In addition, “Taki Taki” has peaked as the #2 song in the world on iTunes, and reached #1 on iTunes in 25 countries. Meanwhile, it’s also peaked as the #1 trending video on YouTube in the U.S.

The worldwide smash success of “Taki Taki” was boosted by Spotify’s recent launch of Global X — a new playlist full of rhythmic crossover hits from cultures around the world. Spotify accompanied the playlist’s launch with a unique vertical video for the bilingual, Latin-music-infused “Taki Taki,” which the platform hails as “a true mix of cultures.”

DJ Snake’s 2016 hit “Let Me Love You” ft. Justin Bieber reached a billion streams on Spotify. That achievement makes him only the fifth artist in Spotify history (along with Drake, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, and The Chainsmokers) to have two songs earn a billion streams each on the platform. DJ Snake first hit the billion-stream mark with “Lean On” ft. MØ, his 2015 collaboration with Major Lazer.

Having toured the world this summer, DJ Snake will return to the U.S. this fall for two very special shows. This Halloween season, the world-class producer will headline sold-out dates at New York City’s Avant Gardner (on October 26) and L.A.’s legendary Shrine (on October 31).

With its worldly rhythms and infectious energy, “Taki Taki” continues DJ Snake’s track record of global hits, from “Turn Down for What” to “Let Me Love You” to the club record of the summer: his India-inspired “Magenta Riddim. “Taki Taki” arrives ahead of DJ Snake’s forthcoming album, which is set to drop soon.

SAARA RELEASES NEW SINGLE “ALL THE LOVE (FT. JILLIONAIRE)” TODAY

LISTEN HERE
 

Today, LA-based singer and songwriter SAARA releases a new single, “All The Love ft. Jillionaire”: LISTEN HERE.
 

This is a follow-up to SAARA’s previous single “Superpowers,” which has surpassed over 7 million streams globally and received airplay in her home country of Finland as well as Sweden, Norway, and Estonia. For “All The Love,” SAARA teamed up with Jillionaire from acclaimed electronic music trio Major Lazer.

 

SAARA describes the single:

“‘All The Love’ is about being in a relationship where you find yourself loving your partner while not being in love with them. I believe many people in relationships have experienced this, since it is so normal to fall in and out of love. You still love your partner, but have sort of lost the loving feeling, and that’s what this song is about. Whether you try to fix the situation or leave the relationship, that’s up to you.”
