ZARA LARSSON RELEASE THE MUSIC VIDEO FOR “INVISIBLE”
Speaking about the new album, Madeon says, “I’ve been living this album every day for years and now it’s time to share it. I wanted to capture the colors of this mysterious, sometimes dangerous joy I’ve been feeling in episodes lately. Those moments where reality feels more colorful, more profound, more spiritual, more fun than usual. I tried to illustrate that by welcoming into my world the sounds of humans, from large choirs to soloists, children and live musicians.”
SIX60 RELEASE THE MUSIC VIDEO FOR “PLEASE DON’T GO”
Khushi recorded and produced Strange Seasons in a shed in east London over the past six years, pulling from more than a decade of songs and demos. Though Khushi originally released music under his own name in the early years of this decade, he took a several-year break to work on other music before returning to this deeply personal project, isolating himself in the shed to find his purest creative expressions. Toward the end of the process, Khushi was introduced to James Blake, who fell in love with the album and offered to mix it. This in turn led to Blake asking Khushi to contribute to his acclaimed album Assume Form, and to join him on his recent North American and U.K. tours as support.
“‘Hands On Me’ is about loving someone who’s lost the power to love themselves. It’s about offering yourself as a sanctuary for the other when times get bad. We want to give our fans the courage and means to speak up and reach out when it’s all too much. To show them that we’re here for them, and that we should all be here for one another.” – James Hersey & ELI
Over the course of the past year, FLETCHER has unveiled a series of songs that explore the many stages of post-breakup grief – beginning with “Undrunk” in January, which Billboard hailed as “the First Great Breakout Pop Song of 2019.” With her latest release, “One Too Many,” she’s one step closer to closure. But while the verses declare “I’m done with coming undone,” she launches one last salvo on the brutally honest, supremely relatable chorus.
Pretty Savage was the only girl of three children. With her oldest brother as her best friend and the majority of her other friends male, she always considered herself just ‘one of the guys’. This affinity later lent itself to her being crowned the First Lady of G Herbo’s 150 Dream Team. A ‘tomboy’ in the most multidimensional sense of the term, whether it be her delivery or content, Pretty Savage’s bars come with a refreshing intensity and lyrical ferocity unmatched by her peers. After years of developing her craft and equipped with her whole city of Norfolk in her corner, Pretty Savage is poised to quickly skyrocket to super stardom.
