Charlotte says on creating the track: “Writing this song served as a personal, emotional outlet for me to be vulnerable about my anxiety and to learn about myself through the process. But in sharing the song with the world, I also want to give light to the issue of mental health. It’s something that affects all of us, and the more we talk about it and create art about it, the more the stigma dissipates.”

Carriers Release Two-Song Cassette Single on Old Flame Records, Playing MOTR on May 12

Paul Porter, an Advisory Board Member of the Parents Television Council, founder of Rap Rehab, and co-founder of Industry Ears, offered a statement today regarding Spotify’s announcement of its new Hate Content and Hateful Conduct Policy.
Spotify says its users will no longer be able to find R. Kelly’s music on any of the streaming service’s editorial or algorithmic playlists. In a statement to Billboard Magazine, Spotify said Kelly’s music “will still be available on the service, but Spotify will not actively promote it. We don’t censor content because of an artist’s or creator’s behavior, but we want our editorial decisions — what we choose to program — to reflect our values. When an artist or creator does something that is especially harmful or hateful, it may affect the ways we work with or support that artist or creator.”
“Spotify says it has standards, but out of millions of titles, the company is only using it once? I applaud Spotify for publicly stating its new Hate Content and Hateful Conduct policy. Its actions today are an urgently-needed first step for social and corporate responsibility. But Spotify’s next steps will prove to be even more important, as it will demonstrate just how committed the company is to living by its new policy,” said Mr. Porter.
“R. Kelly’s alleged conduct is disgraceful, and music platforms like Spotify need to act responsibly in their promotion of his work. But when other artists routinely celebrate sexual violence, murder, misogyny and other conduct that also fits within Spotify’s policy guidelines, those artists must also be held to account. I call on Spotify to take the bold steps necessary to implement its new policy more broadly. And I call on all other distribution platforms to adopt and adhere to a similar policy. We can and should be responsible without being censorial.”
Less than ten days after PEOPLE hit the road. Brantley Gilbert lands in the pages of the iconic celebrity news weekly. Fresh from a show at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheatre where he performed his entire hard-edged set backed by a symphony orchestra, his profile lands him in the May 21st issue, on-stands May 11.
“It’s been a pretty incredible several days,” says the man whose “Dirt Road Anthem” was nominated for CMA Song of the Year. “To play Nashville with an orchestra, the last thing people would expect from me, was awesome. Selling t-shirts that say, ‘I Believe in Heroism’ to benefit the families of the young people shot at the Waffle House felt so good. So to hear the People story is running so quickly, well, that’s crazy and alright.”

Lulleaux Has Your Summer Soundtrack Covered With Two New Tracks “Sober” & “Missing You”
Whether you’re feeling frisky or lovesick this summer, Lulleaux has you covered with not one but two new tracks, “Sober” and “Missing You.” Out on Be Yourself, the dual release showcases Lulleaux’s exploration of vocal-heavy tracks and chill, melodic basslines to create two complementary but different vibes. “Sober” is an enchanting tale of liquor-fueled hookups bastioned by sultry, empowered vocals, accented by muted instrumentals and a deep house bassline. “This is a track that is a bit different and more experimental than the tracks that I recently dropped. The instrumental stays calm while the vocal makes it catchy as hell,” says Lulleaux. Conversely, “Missing You” delivers rhythmic basslines and sweeping synths, featuring emotive vocals by NEIMY that set a wistful yet hopeful mood. Lulleaux weaves in his signature deep house melodies throughout, though it’s clear that he’s not putting his sound in a box. “I hate musical boundaries,” he confirms, “For me, it’s all about good vibes and melodies.” The “Sober” and “Missing You” dual release follows Lulleaux’s recent “You Look Like (Sex),” a fun and airy tune that will put you in just the right mood to approach that attractive stranger at your next festival.
