ELLEY DUHÉ RELEASES NEW SINGLE “LOST MY MIND” FROM HER FORTHCOMING DEBUT EP
On the release of “LOST MY MIND” Elley says: “‘Lost My Mind’ is about human connection. In the song, I’m pleading to the outside world and people in my life to not abandon me or think less of me because I may be going through a dark period. The point I’m trying to get across in the song is that something as simple as having compassion for someone is important even if you don’t understand what they’re going through.”
“Only You” is a folk tinged summer pop tune, with an upbeat EDM chorus that is sure to be soundtrack of dance floors around the world this year. The song was written by The Six, Digital Farm Animals and Cheat Codes. Produced by Cheat Codes, the trio knew instantly they wanted the vocals of Perrie, Leigh-Anne, Jade and Jesy on the track.
All-star group featuring Noah Gunderson, Matthew Logan Vasquez and others release new song; announce tour
Glorietta was born out of Delta Spirit main man Matthew Logan Vasquez’s desire to collaborate with some of his closest musical friends, among them Noah Gundersen, Kelsey Wilson, David Ramirez, Jason Robert Blum, and GRAMMY® Award-winner Adrian Quesada. The band officially came together last year over the course of a nine-day recording session in a rented house in Glorieta, NM, just outside of Santa Fe. With Vasquez as the hub, all involved were connected in one way or another, some old friends, others meeting for the very first time. For nine long days, tape ran constantly as the new family of collaborators developed a wide-ranging passel of creative ideas and songs into a unique and singular vision. The players were joined midway through the sessions by the one and only Nathaniel Rateliff, who drove straight through the night to join the party (and lend vocals to the LP’s “I Know”). The result of their labor is GLORIETTA, an extraordinary melding of six one-of-a-kind voices that add up to a distinctive and truly special debut album.
Today, GRAMMY-nominated, multi-platinum selling singer, songwriter and producer JHart (AKA James Abrahart) unveils his debut solo single, the emotionally-charged soul-pop anthem “Put It To Bed.” The track debuted earlier this week on Beats1’s A-List Pop Live show with host and purveyor of pop music, Arjan Timmermans, who proclaimed “the state of pop is strong, JHart is solid proof of that.” Complete with cinematic strings, soaring vocals, and a slow-simmering bedroom-ready bassline, the song was written and produced by JHart and Nick Ruth (5 Seconds of Summer, Kelly Clarkson, Carly Rae Jepsen) and offers listeners an exciting first taste of what’s to come from his forthcoming project, Vol 1 – Songs From Therapy, due later this year. Other collaborators on the project include Greg Wells and Lostboy.

YUMI slows it down on Dim Mak single “Ego Boost,” the title track off her forthcoming debut EP.

Dan Reynolds & Hans Zimmer Release “Skipping Stones” From The HBO Documentary Film BELIEVER
“‘Skipping Stones’ is a song about feeling lost in life and upset with the state of things,” said Dan Reynolds (lead vocalist of Imagine Dragons). “I wrote it for the film to convey my feelings about the state of things within my community and a desire for change. Working with Hans Zimmer on the song was truly a dream realized. He is a musical genius and even more importantly a powerful, humble and gentle man. He was so passionate about the cause and wanted to be a part of it. He set aside everything to score the film and work on the song. I’m very proud of the end result.”

The 405 has shared Human Touch’s new single “Living Young”. When talking about the track singer Natalia Rogovin says “I wrote this song when I was facing a choice between ‘settling down’ and living a life that is more in the box or continuing to seek new experiences and adventure, I rebel when people equate being an adult with giving up mystery and the possibility of the moment and drifting into a routine of known quantities. I never want to give up the mystery up. Writing ‘Living Young’ helped me remember that.” Human Touch’s hit song “Promise Not To Fall” has risen into the Global and US Viral Top Ten on Spotify. The track has over 3.5 million streams on Spotify, over 3 million on YouTube, and was recently featured on the hit show ’13 Reasons Why’. Human Touch’s debut LP ‘Promise Not To Fall’ is out 9/7.
Directed by Anna Zorn, a graduate of both the writing and improvisation programs at Chicago’s Second City, the video stars 11-year old Madysen Reilly. Of her performance, NPR Music/WXPN World Café praises, “The daughter, marvelously played by 11-year-old Madysen Reilly in her first on-screen role, pops a cassette of ‘Hey Man’ into her cassette player and proceeds to rock out and live out her rock and roll fantasy. Playing air guitar, lip-syncing into her hairbrush microphone and jumping around her room, the downstairs perfection comes completely unhinged as mom and her friends succumb to the music and the energy coming from the floor above. Someone’s bra comes off, cakes are smashed, donuts are stuffed into mouths, and everyone proceeds to get wild. It’s the ultimate twist to a rock and roll tale.”
