Picture This Release “One Drink” Music Video

Today, critically acclaimed Irish international phenomenon Picture This release the official music video for their new single “One Drink.” Watch HERE. Listen HERE via Republic Records.

The song heralds the arrival of the band’s anxiously awaited second full-length album, MDRN LV, releasing in stores and at all digital retailers on February 15, 2019. Produced by Jayson Dezuzio [Imagine Dragons, X Ambassadors], the record represents a creative high watermark for the quartet as they expand their signature style and venture into uncharted sonic territory.

The biggest selling Irish act in both 2017 and 2018, and the nation’s hottest musical export in decades, Picture This arrived as a phenomenon with their self-titled 2017 full-length debut, Picture This. Certified triple-platinum in Ireland, it held the #1 spot Overall in the country for four weeks, while topping the Streaming Chart for seven weeks. Moreover, it remained in the Top 5 since release. Two years since their formation, they’ve impressively sold over 300K tickets, concluding 2017 with a sold-out UK and Ireland tour highlighted by gigs at O2 Shepherd’s Bush London, SSE Arena Belfast, and a two-night stand at 3Arena in Dublin. This summer marked their first stadium tour in Ireland, which capped off with a 35,000-person stadium show selling out over 3 months prior. During late 2018, they teamed up with super producer Jayson Dezuzio to record the 2019 follow-up, MDRN LV.

Morgxn Ft. Walk The Moon Reveal “Home”

LA-based artist morgxn and Alt-Pop four-piece WALK THE MOON have come together to reveal their take on morgxn’s standout single “home.” With dynamic visuals on the way, “home” seamlessly blends morgxn’s vocals with WALK THE MOON frontman Nicholas Petricca. The pair sang “home” for the first time live at morgxn’s Lollapalooza debut performance earlier this summer and decided to go into the studio to turn it into an official collaboration.

Morgxn about the single:

“When Nicholas from WALK THE MOON joined me at Lollapalooza on this song I felt something cosmic in that moment and the idea was born to make a new version. How often do you get to step back on the mic and sing with the feeling of singing in Paris, London, Berlin, Salt Lake City, Sacramento, Chicago, New York, Nashville… How often do you get to sing a song already knowing it has changed your life? That’s this version. That’s this HOME.”

Morgxn who recently released his debut album vital sat down with Rolling Stone GRAMMYs at Lollapalooza to shed light on his standout song “home” (over 10m streams) and a Robert Smith-approved cover of The Cure’s “boys don’t cry.” Additionally, his song “carry the weight” was the soundtrack to HBO’s chill-inducing “Share The Love” PRIDE campaign HERE and added to SiriusXM’s Alt Nation. Morgxn recently revealed a live, stripped down version of his single “carry the weight”, shot at Clubhouse Austin here and an intimate Baeble Music NEXT session and “Armed with just a piano, he let his voice shine, switching between powerhouse vocals and delicate vibrato” here.

Morgxn is currently on tour with Dreamers and Weathers, stopping in cities across the country from Atlanta to Columbus (see all dates below.) Previously, morgxn has toured with Phoebe Ryan, Skylar Grey, Miike Snow and X Ambassadors.

Earlier this month Entertainment Weekly revealed that X Ambassadors – Sam Harris, Casey Harris, Adam Levin – will be joining the cast of NCIS: New Orleans for an episode airing November 21st that features the band playing “Ahead of Myself” and another new song, “The Devil You Know.”  The band also recently collaborated with Machine Gun Kelly and Bebe Rexha on the single “Home” which is currently being featured in the trailer for the new Netflix film BRIGHT – featuring Will Smith.

In addition to releasing new single “Ahead of Myself,” “The Devil You Know” and “Torches” this year, in March X Ambassadors released the song “Hoping” directly following a benefit concert they played for Planned Parenthood in LA.  The song was written shortly after the election of Donald Trump and proceeds of the single were donated to the American Civil Liberties Union. Just last Tuesday on election day the ACLU released an inspiring and beautiful video featuring “Hoping” – watch HERE.  The band has been very vocal about their feelings and when this song came out, Sam Harris told Billboard, “We will continue to fight against sexism, racism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, homophobia, xenophobia, and the pervasive intolerance being encouraged under our current administration. As long as there are those of us who suffer and experience injustice in this world, we will continue to use our music and our voices to speak up. Our resistance is one of love and hope.”

X Ambassadors is looking forward to bringing their new songs to life in February when they hit the road for a two-week run that has the band playing some incredible intimate venues including Brooklyn Steel and DC’s legendary 9:30 Club.  They’ll also return to Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre in May for the biggest show of their career.  Complete list of confirmed 2018 tour dates below:

X Ambassadors Release Video for “Ahead Of Myself”

“With the “Ahead Of Myself” video, we wanted to take something that everyone takes for granted in music videos and turn that on its head,” says X Ambassadors lead singer Sam Harris. “Instead of lip-synching along to the words, the vocals would be recorded live, in the moment. We hoped to create something vulnerable and imperfect with this video, because that’s what the song is all about – embracing your fears and still diving in head-first.”

X Ambassadors’ latest single “Ahead Of Myself” is currently climbing up the Alternative Radio chart as the band gets ready for their inaugural Cayuga Sound Festival which will take place in their home town of Ithaca, NY on September 23rd.  The festival will feature performances by X Ambassadors, The Roots,  K.Flay, The Knocks, Margaret Glaspy, Jukebox the Ghost, Tei Shi and more. A portion of the proceeds will benefit local non-profits including Friends of Stewart Park, The Ithaca Youth Bureau, GIAC, Planned Parenthood Ithaca, Community School of Music & Arts and others.
