Rilès releases “!I’ll Be Back!” & Tour

NEW YORK, NY (June 22, 2018) — Today, buzzing French hip-hop artist Rilès releases his new single “!I’ll Be Back!

Get it HERE via Republic Records.

Driven by roaring horns and an airtight beat, the track showcases his off-kilter creativity and inimitable charisma. Over this unpredictable soundscape, he drops clever rhymes and a catchy chorus. It’s emblematic of his outlier approach and show-stopping style.

The song represents the culmination of a massive undertaking by Rilès. It all started in his bedroom—which doubles as a creative hive. He produces, writes, and records music in this tiny space (it’s also where you can find him often painting and crafting visual art as well). From that D.I.Y. headquarters, he made the decision to release one new song per week (52 in total) as part of his highly touted Rilèsundayz initiative. He kept the promise with a slew of songs on a weekly basis, and it finally concludes with the unveiling of his new major label single “!I’ll Be Back!”

“!I’ll Be Back!” arrives hot on the heels of his U.S. debut single “Should I, which has already cracked 4.8 million Spotify streams. Meanwhile, the song’s self-directed music video just crossed the 4-million-mark on YouTube within a month’s time.

Be on the lookout for more from Rilès soon as he is currently on his Summer Festival tour, the remaining tour dates can be found below.

Out of a tiny makeshift bedroom studio, Rilès became the talk of Europe and Africa. Between graduating from a French scientific high school and studying English literature at the University of Rouen, he began painting, producing, writing, recording, mixing, mastering, and engineering an undeniable underground catalog in this tiny space. His YouTube channel impressively exceeded the 100-million-mark on YouTube by dropping one song per week from September 2016 through September 2017. Additionally, he sold out every date of his first tour as “Brothers” cracked 11 million Spotify streams with “Thank God” eclipsing 9 million on the platform.

The Royal Wedding

Decca Records is proud to release The Official Recording of The Royal Wedding, one of the most eagerly awaited events of the year. Having recorded the entire service live at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle today, every piece of music, the readings, blessings and the vows will be available to listen to permanently on all streaming services in just a few hours: a first for a Royal Wedding. The physical album, on CD, will then be released into retail stores around the world from 25th May. The recording will also be made available on vinyl. The album cover will be replaced with an exclusive photograph from the wedding.

The musical highlight of the moving and joyous ceremony was British cellist, Sheku Kanneh-Mason, one of the most exciting musicians of his generation, who was personally asked by the bride and groom to perform at their wedding. The 19-year-old musician took centre stage for the all-important signing of the register. Dressed in a black Paul Smith suit with vibrant pink tie, Sheku played three beautiful pieces: Sicilienne by von Paradis, Schubert’s Ave Maria, and Apres Un Reave by Faur. He was accompanied by orchestra*, as the Royal Couple officially became husband and wife. Knowing he was performing not only for the Royal Family, 600 invited guests in the Chapel, and an estimated global audience of up to three billion people, the talented teenager was thrilled to be involved in the occasion.

“It was such an awesome moment, just really incredible to perform for Prince Harry and Meghan at their wedding! The atmosphere was amazing and I’m proud to have played a small part in the celebrations. It’s a day I will remember for the rest of my life,” Sheku Kanneh-Mason (Cellist).

Enhancing the emotion of the occasion, the personal musical choices of Prince Harry and his new wife, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, include Handel’s Eternal Source of Light Divine, John Rutter’s The Lord Bless You and Keep You and the hymn Lord Of All Hopefulness, as well as two popular tracks performed by The Kingdom Choir conducted by Karen Gibson: Ben E. King’s hit song Stand By Me and the gospel tune This Little Light Of Mine. The orchestra was fronted by Welsh soprano Elin Manahan Thomas and accompanied by trumpet player David Blackadder, organist Luke Bond and State Trumpeters from the Band of the Household Cavalry.

The album’s producer is one of the world’s most experienced, Anna Barry. Grammy nominated Ms Barry has produced over 500 recordings over 25 years, ranging from works by Andrew Lloyd Webber to opera at the Mariinsky Theatre with Valery Gergiev, and many other legendary artists including Jos Carreras and Zubin Mehta.

In a feat of both musical engineering and co-ordination, Anna and the team are delivering a state of the art recording in record-breaking time. The complicated logistical process includes the digital transfer from St George’s Chapel to the mastering in a Kensington studio in order to reach digital platforms faster even than for the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The producer said of the recording, “It is a massive responsibility with absolutely no room for error, so I will be relieved when it’s over, but very happy and honoured to be a part of this day,” Anna Barry (Record Producer).

Decca Records is part of Universal Music, the world’s leading music company, and has previously recorded and released the Wedding of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2011, as well as the Wedding of The Prince and Princess of Wales in 1981, and the Funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales in 1997. This uniquely original new recording, released today, will be the next in a historic line to mark major milestones for The Royal Family, and as such it will enter the homes of millions across the whole world.

Rebecca Allen, President of Decca Records commented: Decca are hugely honoured to have been involved in recording this remarkable day. The choices of music, and the artists involved, were of the highest quality and will now be available for everyone around the world to listen back to, again and again.

Dickon Stainer, President & CEO, Global Classics & Jazz said: “Every word and every note of music from this historic event are now captured forever in the highest quality sound recording. It is something magical and unforgettable.”

Decca will make a donation per album sold to support the charitable work of The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. The Royal Foundation is used as the main vehicle for Their Royal Highnesses’ philanthropic activities, including programmes such as Heads Together, Coach Core, and the Endeavour Fund (reg. charity no. 1132048). Ms. Markle will join The Royal Foundation as its fourth Patron following her marriage.

*The orchestra is made up of musicians from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, the English Chamber Orchestra and the Philharmonia, conducted by Christopher Warren-Green.

YUNGBLUD

UK recording artist Yungblud, whom NME has said carries himself like “a hyper-addictive mix between rapper Eminem and Johnny Rotten,” releases his self-titled debut EP today via all digital partners. Listen to Yungblud HERE.

With his frenetic take on alt-pop equally inspired by punk, hip-hop, and UK garage, Yungblud uses breakneck flow and tongue-in-cheek attitude to deliver pointed lyrics about everything from gentrification to disenfranchisement to addiction without getting heavy-handed. “I want my music to always have a message, but I don’t want to preach to anybody,” says the Northern England native, whose given name is Dominic Harrison. “This music’s just an outburst of emotion and anger, and everything else going on in my head.”

The Yorkshire-born, London-based Yungblud, produced by Matt Schwartz – known for his work on Massive Attack and Kylie Minogue, and brought to Geffen/Interscope by executive producer Martin Terefe who has worked with Jason Mraz and KT Tunstall.

The EP features “King Charles” and “Tin Pan Boy” (which Wonderland called “a bold and biting call to social justice”) and the current single “I Love You, Will You Marry Me,” which takes its title from a real-life, ill-fated marriage proposal spray-painted at a public housing project in South Yorkshire. Watch the live performance video for “ILYWYMM” HEREand the self-directed video for “Tin Pan Boy” HERE. The EP also includes two brand-new songs, “Anarchist” and “Polygraph Eyes,” a seedy portrait of a Saturday night out that also serves as a delicate commentary on consent and “lad mentality.”

In a recent profile of Yungblud, Wonderland raves about his “captivating songwriting,” while Nylon notes that “Harrison imbues every ounce of raucous energy into songs that defy genre.” NME has called him “utterly thrilling” and says that “what makes Yungblud so intriguing is the versatility in his material already, and how confident he feels about pulling it all off.”

Yungblud, who is on the road in Europe through early February, hits the road for a U.S. spring tour with K.Flay beginning March 12 in Washington, DC. “If you ever get the chance to see him perform live, his passion is evident in the way he throws himself around the stage, spitting ferocious lyrics at the front row and strutting around with the confidence you only have if you were born to do something,” writes Wonderland
