Brooke Bentham shares 3rd single “Control”

Brooke Bentham releases ‘Control’, the explosive third single from debut album Everyday Nothing which will be released on AllPoints on the 28th of February.

‘Control’ examines the connected age’s anxiety-inducing phenomenon of ghosting: “It’s about when someone cuts you off entirely. It’s weird when someone does that,” she explains. “I got blocked out with absolutely no reason why, and it makes you question yourself and you just can’t stop thinking about it. you’re just talking to a wall; it’s bouncing back and you end up with this mess in your head.”

ROSALÍA Releases New Song & Video “JURO QUE” (I Swear That)

Just days before her highly-anticipated GRAMMY performance, Rosalía has once again surprised fans by adding another standout track to her prolific string of unexpected one-off song releases across the last year. With “JURO QUE” (I Swear That), the groundbreaking flamenco & global pop fusion artist emotionally returns to her musical roots with a straight-up flamenco torch song, longing for the love of her life that was taken from her side and is now separated by prison walls.

“JURO QUE” also arrives with a Tanu Muino directed video that already set off a social media surge earlier this week, when an advance teaser post from Rosalía unveiled the co-starring role of fast-rising Spanish actor Omar Ayuso of the Netflix series “Elite.”


Written by Mae, David Pramik [Bebe Rexha, Machine Gun Kelly] and Caroline Ailin [Dua Lipa, Ella Mai]. ‘Therapist’ addresses the role of a woman in a ‘one-way’ relationship who puts in all the work, gets nothing back and finally makes the decision that enough is enough. Mae delivers her honest account of this difficult situation with her clear- cut velvety soul- tinged vocals, draped over a soft jazz and RnB infused melody.


Chaz Cardigan, the first artist jointly signed to Capitol Records/Loud Robot, released his anthemic new single – “Not OK!” – today along with the official video. Loud Robot is the new record label from J.J. Abrams’ production company, Bad Robot.
