Mandy Moore, 360 MAGAZINE, Lauren Dukoff

Mandy Moore – I’d Rather Lose

Mandy Moore released her second single today titled “I’d Rather Lose,” from her forthcoming new album. The song follows the release of the singer-songwriter’s first new single “When I Wasn’t Watching,” which NPR raved “the song sways with Stevie Nicks energy” and The Atlantic described as “…folkie rock pop, building on a lineage running from Fleetwood Mac to Haim.” Moore’s warm vocals shine through on both new tracks which will appear on her first new album in a decade, due out early next year via Verve Forecast. Click HERE to listen to the single and for audio video, click HERE.

“We live in a cultural moment of “win at all costs” and that may afford small victories in the short term but this song tries to explore the idea of trying to live according to your moral compass, whatever that might be,” says Moore. “It’s easy to run out of patience and give into temptations on any given day, but it seems like the only way of achieving the kind of long term peace of mind we’re all looking for, requires a recommitment to the concepts of honesty and integrity that ground us. On a macro level, that’s what this song aims to hit on – abandoning some game you never subscribed to in the first place.”

Newly signed to Verve Forecast (a label whose roster also includes such esteemed artists as T Bone Burnett and J.S. Ondara), Moore began recording the new album earlier this year. In a purposeful departure from the more tightly structured pop of her previous material, she’s worked closely with long-time collaborator and producer Mike Viola and with her husband, Taylor Goldsmith (singer/guitarist/songwriter for L.A.-based folk-rock band Dawes), creating the album’s lyrics on her own and recording each song live with a full band setup.

As a result of that more organic production approach, songs like “When I Wasn’t Watching” and “I’d Rather Lose,” embody a bright vitality that wholly fulfills Moore’s initial vision for the album. “I wanted to make a very California-sounding record – something that feels sunshiny and airy and natural, something you could listen to driving up and down the PCH with all the windows rolled down on a beautiful weekend day,” she notes.

With her second single out today, Moore looks forward to embarking on the next chapter of her music career with a newfound sense of agency. “I very much feel like I’m at the helm of the ship now, where I’m stepping back into music completely on my own terms,” she says. “Everything that’s happened up until this point has gotten me to where I am today, and I’m so excited to just keep moving forward.”

About Mandy Moore

An Emmy-, Grammy- and Golden Globe-nominated actress, singer, and songwriter, Mandy Moore first came to national attention with her platinum-selling 1999 debut album So Real. With her sophomore effort I Wanna Be with You arriving in 2000 and her self-titled third album released in 2001, she starred in the film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’s A Walk to Remember in 2002, winning an MTV Movie Award for Breakthrough Female Performance. Over the next decade, Moore appeared in a dozen films and released a series of celebrated albums: 2003’s Coverage, 2007’s Wild Hope, and 2009’s Amanda Leigh. Since 2016, she’s starred on the critically acclaimed NBC series “This Is Us,” earning Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for her role as matriarch Rebecca Pearson. With the fourth season of “This Is Us” premiering in late-September 2019, Moore will next be seen alongside Woody Harrelson in Roland Emmerich’s feature film Midway.

Selena Gomez New Song

Selena Gomez releases a highly anticipated new song about self-love.  “Lose You To Love Me” is available today at all digital retailers via Interscope Records.  Selena co-wrote the song with long-time collaborators Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter as well as Mattias Larsson and Robin Fredriksson with additional production from FINNEAS. Gomez says, “This song was inspired by many things that have happened in my life since releasing my last album.  I thought it was important to share the music, as I know many can relate to the fact that the road to self-discovery generally comes through the scars in one’s life.  I want people to feel hope and to know you will come out the other side stronger and a better version of yourself.” Listen to “Lose You To Love Me” HERE.


The beautiful music video directed by the acclaimed Sophie Muller (“Good for You”) was shot entirely on the new iPhone 11 Pro.  Watch the video HERE.


Earlier this year, Gomez was featured on “I Can’t Get Enough” with Benny Blanco, J Balvin and Tainy. In 2018, she collaborated with DJ Snake, Ozuna and Cardi B on the global hit “Taki Taki,” which became one of the fastest videos to reach over 100 million views. Her previous five singles “It Ain’t Me” with Kygo, “Bad Liar,” “Fetish,” “Wolves” x Marshmello and “Back to You” all have been certified RIAA platinum or multi-platinum.  As a solo artist Gomez has accumulated over 20 billion global streams. 


At the end of 2017 Gomez was named Billboard Magazine’s “Woman of the Year.” In 2015, Gomez released her critically acclaimed album Revival. The first three singles off the album “Good For You,” “Same Old Love” and “Hands to Myself” went to number one on the US Top 40 chart. Gomez is one of only six female artists to have at least three songs from one album reach the #1 position since the chart launched in 1992.

Gomez most recently executive produced the critically acclaimed Netflix docu-series “Living Undocumented” which created much buzz and discussion regarding the polarizing issue of undocumented people living in the United States.  Earlier this year, she starred in Jim Jarmusch’s film THE DEAD DON’T DIE opposite Bill Murray and Adam Driver, which premiered at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.

5 Seconds Of Summer Honor Queen With Cover Of “Killer Queen”

In honor of the life and legacy of Freddie Mercury and Queen, and in celebration of the upcoming biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, multi-platinum band 5 Seconds Of Summer release a cover of Queen’s 1974 seminal hit, “Killer Queen” today at all digital providers.  Stream/Download “Killer Queen” HERE.

Says 5SOS, “Queen have been such a massive influence on us as a band.  Their unique harmonies, the fluidity to their songwriting and how they each used their own musicality to back each other up have always inspired us.  We chose to cover, ‘Killer Queen’ because we kept hearing it while writing our third album, Youngblood and were so enamored by the production and their early realization of the minimalist approach to the track.  For us, the exploration of individual vocalists in a band is incredibly important and Queen helped us to see the future of how we want to sing, in addition to how we play our instruments.  As a pioneer of individuality, Freddie taught us what it means to embrace the idea of truly being yourself and that’s a part of Queen that lives on in their music now, more than ever.”

The song, produced by Linus, follows singer-songwriter and musician, Shawn Mendes’ acoustic interpretation of the iconic 1981 No. 1 hit, “Under Pressure” and was recorded as the second installment in a series of three artist covers in support of the Mercury Phoenix Trust (MPT).  The MPT was founded in 1992 by Brian MayRoger Taylor and Jim Beach to support the global fight against HIV/AIDS. 5SOS, together with Universal Music Group (UMG) and Queen, will donate net profits of the track to the MPT.

“Everyone at the Mercury Phoenix Trust is thrilled that 5 Seconds of Summer have joined our global campaign fighting AIDS in celebration of the movie Bohemian Rhapsody. Thank you 5SOS for giving us such an impeccable version of Freddie’s classic Killer Queen,” said Queen’s manager, Jim Beach.

A.CHAL, aligns with Palmtrees. Each song from Palmtrees & Powerlines will find a place within one of these two worlds NETSKY has built.

About their “Ice Cold” collaboration, Guetta excitedly said, “Working with NETSKY on this track was amazing. He’s such a great producer, and I’m really happy with the end result.

NETSKY recently produced two cuts on the Guetta’s recent album 7, including “Light Headed” [feat. Sia] and “Battle” [feat. Faouzia].

“’Ice Cold’ was such a fun song to make.” NETSKY adds about the new song, “I remember both Stargate and David Guetta making me crank up this demo in a LA studio and all of us vibing to it together. Working with David was amazing, it was inspiring seeing his work routine and energy in studio and I’m so excited to be releasing this single today.”
