Three years before “Old Town Road,” Cyrus began planning his passion project, The SnakeDoctor Circus, with his longtime musical soulmate, Don Von Tress. The concept album, which “employs some fanciful allegorical imagery to make a very serious real-life point” (Taste of Country),” is available now via BMG. Billboard compared Cyrus’ performance of “I’ve Been Around” on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” as a “powerful Johnny Cash-like ballad.”

About Billy Ray Cyrus:
Billy Ray Cyrus became a household name over the course of his unprecedented career which spans across music, television and theater. Throughout his nearly three decade career, Cyrus has achieved worldwide success as a singer, songwriter, actor and producer. The Flatwoods, KY native exploded onto the music scene when his first album, Some Gave All, debuted on the all-genre Billboard album chart at No. 1 and stayed there for a record-breaking 17 weeks in 1992. The lead single, “Achy Breaky Heart,” became a phenomenon as the single went multi-platinum. After “Achy Breaky Heart,” Cyrus followed up with back to back hits “It Could’ve Been Me,” “She’s Not Crying Anymore,” “Wher’m I Gonna Live When I Get Home?” and the anthemic “Some Gave All.” Cyrus knocked himself out of the top Billboard position with the his second No. 1 album, It Won’t Be The Last, featuring smash hits “In the Heart of a Woman,” “Words By Heart” and “Somebody New.” Cyrus followed up with dozens more that defined country music. “To me, my most defining moment in country was being joined by George Jones and Loretta Lynn on my self-penned ‘Country Music Has the Blues,’” said Cyrus. He also enjoyed a successful career as an actor in “Doc” and “Still The King,” as well as the Disney series “Hannah Montana” with his daughter Miley.

Maggie Lindemann has consistently challenged her self-identity and evolved as an artist throughout a career that’s already seen her pass the billion streams landmark. Her breakthrough smash ‘Pretty Girl’ established her as a breaking pop icon before she took a reflective, goth-tinged approach with ‘Would I’ and ‘Human’.
Her latest cut ‘Friends Go’ continues her exploration of mental health issues, but the music has shifted again with a modernist update of Gwen Stefani-style attitude and summery island rhythms. Now Maggie uses ‘Friends Go’ as the soundtrack to the short film ‘Death By Third Wheel’, which was directed by Van Alpert (Post Malone, Local Natives).
Van Alpert’s vision for the track is cinematic in scale, and captures the emotional heart of the song in a way that’s visually striking.
He commented, “My goal is making a video feel bigger than life, something that you’d only see in a movie theatre – a little escape from your life while you watch. I wanted the car to be a representation of Maggie’s heart. The car crashing, bouncing and exploding in artistic ways gives you an overall feeling of excitement. When you lose your mind from being excluded from your friends or love, your heart goes through it, just like the car.
I strayed away from the obvious storyline, with the backbone being multiple beautiful crashes where no-one gets hurt. The video is fun and surprising. It hits you over the head and gives you clues throughout of what’s coming. It was the most fun I’ve ever had making a video.”
‘Friends Go’ commences Maggie’s build-up to her first full-length project which is set to be released later in the year. It’s set to add another new chapter to a career in which Maggie has emerged as an icon of her generation, with over a billion audio streams, 5.4 million monthly listeners at Spotify, 186 million views at YouTube, 3.5 million followers at Instagram and an international array of Platinum awards. She’s also performed with Khalid, Troye Sivan and Sabrina Carpenter. She has garnered critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard, Complex, Uproxx, NYLON, Bustle, Idolator, L’Officiel as well as Paper, who named her as one of “100 Women Revolutionizing Pop.”
Maggie has been further celebrated in the world of fashion. She launched her single ‘Obsessed’ with an innovative partnership with the make-up brand Pat McGrath and recently teamed up with Skinny Dip for a sunglasses collaboration. She’s also unveiled her own merch line in the shape of SWIXXZ.

Thank you to everyone for your continued support and joining the green revolution!”

Directed by Rohan Blair-Mangat, the short film touches on the many social issues currently and historically ingrained into his local community of Queens, New York, such as racism and police brutality.
Sole Fury and the #SplitFrom campaign is inspired by the creation of “Split Cushioning,” an innovation developed in the 90’s that radically split from conventional design by removing a piece of a shoe’s midsole. It was a calculated innovation with a bold look, and 25 years later, its influence is seen on feet across culture from the gym to the street.
The new campaign features six visionary young creatives who embody the same forward-thinking spirit as the sneaker: to #SplitFrom the pack and redefine culture. Collectively, the result is an exclusive Zine—a physical book that embodies the campaign that was both shot by and features all six subjects.
The birthchild of a birthday shout-out from Redman to Lalah on Instagram, the call on me (Remix) feat. Redman is a sultry number with a club-heavy bottom end.

Having spent the first half of 2017 releasing tracks and installments from No Escape Out Of Time, London based quartet RITUAL today unveil the full project, available via Astralwerks HERE. A stellar collection of tracks complemented by a short film from Jackson Ducasse, the ice-cool pop of RITUAL and sharp cinematics of Ducasse combine beautifully to create a wonderful audio/ visual experience. Speaking on the film, director Jackson Ducasse states:
“No Escape Out Of Time’ is the culmination of a two year collaboration with RITUAL, a project that has enabled each of us to develop and manifest themes and ideas that have fascinated each of us for some time. I had been watching Films like La Jetee, Solaris and Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind. Each of these films deal with memory loss and play with time in unusual and inventive ways- this inspired me and the band hugely. Not only that but we were all getting a bit sick of the average music video – girl and guy having a lovely time in a beautiful location – we wanted to turn that on its head and present a nightmarish inversion of that template. I would like to think that we managed to bring all of those ideas together in an interesting way.
For me as a director it’s the biggest and most ambitious project I’ve been a part of and something I’m incredibly proud to have been involved in.”
Speaking on the No Escape Out Of Time project, RITUAL explain:
“The ‘No Escape Out Of Time’ visual project was something that really developed after we had written the song “Drown The Lovers.” We are big film fans and have always been obsessed with the screenplays and work of Charlie Kaufman.
His take on themes of memory, time and love in ‘Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind’ especially really interested us when we were talking about a visual exploration of the lyrics in “Drown The Lovers.” The film and the songs on the project as a whole explore the ideas of the lifespan of a relationship, something that can start so pure and beautiful but can end so bitterly. From “Real Feels” through to “Better By Now” there is a journey that is ultimately summed up best by the chorus ‘It Wouldn’t Be Love, if it didn’t hurt nobody.'”
Earning the acclaim of the likes of Zane Lowe, FADER, NME and Noisey for their dark brand of pop, No Escape Out Of Time serves as the next step from RITUAL, who penned the Dua Lipa hit “Hotter Than Hell.” Stream the project in full here via Astralwerks: https://ritual.lnk.to/NEOOTPR

When the The All-American Rejects embarked on their recent musical release, “Sweat,”they called on director Jason Bergh to document their most intimate visual exploration to date for the short documentary, “Rejected.” Bergh, who has worked with frontman Tyson since 2005, jumped headfirst into an ambitious behind-the-scenes journey that he hoped would reveal a completely new dimension of the band. As soon as Tyson sent over the new record, I was hooked. Tyson’s boundless creative energy is nothing short of infectious.Over the course of 5 days and with unlimited access, Bergh crafted a stirring cinematic poem that reflects the vision and creativity for which the band has become known over the last 18 years.
Known for stadium-size sing-alongs steeped in pop panache and rock n roll danger, cheeky wit, and raucous concerts that border on religious experiences, The All-American Rejects confidently waltz against the grain. Their 2017 2-song EP Sweat, and the upcoming fifth full-length album, continue a near two-decade tradition of ballsy, brash, and bold pop rock anthems.
