MOON VS. SUN – I’M...

MOON VS SUN – the collaboration between two of Canada’s most prolific artists, Chantal Kreviazuk and Our Lady Peace frontman Raine Maida – have released their debut album together, I’m Going To Break Your Heart (Music from the Motion Picture), with the album’s first single “Lowlight” now accompanied by a music video. Part therapeutic process, part creative journey, their documentary film I’m Going to Break Your Heart, is the true story of rediscovering love through creativity, in which music plays the lead role. Nearly two decades together, Maida and Kreviazuk face challenges – like most people – with their relationship. I’m Going to Break Your Heart captures the raw and wrenching journey they took to find their way back to each other. Filmed on France’s isolated but romantic Saint Pierre et Miquelon island in the dead of winter, the documentary immerses viewers in their musical relationship, even as it exposes long-standing ...

CATFISH & THE BOTTLEMEN &...

Catfish and the Bottlemen are practically of "no fixed abode" due to near constant touring and recording since 2014, when their platinum‐certified debut album The Balcony surfaced. Preparing fans for a raft of new material to follow their 2016 gold‐certified album The Ride, the band is led out of the studio and onto even bigger stages by venerated frontman and songwriter, Van Mccann, along with Johnny Bond (lead guitar). Benji Blakeway (bass), and Bob Hall (drums). Their eagerly anticipated 2019 live announcements come following a triumphant summer that saw them command headline slots across several major UK festivals, and break new ground internationally appearing at top festivals in Italy, Spain, France, and the United States. The past eighteen months has seen the band claim their place as a bona fide arena band at home, adding an already sold‐out UK arena tour in February 2019 to an impressive list of previously conquered stages.

MARVIN GAYE – YOU’...

In celebration of Marvin Gaye’s 80th birthday, Motown/UMe will release his never‐issued 1972 Tamla/Motown album, You’re The Man’ featuring all of Gaye’s solo and non‐soundtrack recordings from 1972, with most of the album’s tracks making their vinyl release debuts. In 1972, Marvin Gaye was on top: or so it seemed. “What’s Going On,” “Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology),” and “Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler”),” the three singles from his universally acclaimed album What’s Going On, had each hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Soul Singles chart. His new single, “You’re The Man” – a percolating, sarcastic riff on political non‐action issued as the U.S. presidential campaign was kicking off – reached No. 7 on Billboard’s Hot Soul Singles chart. He saw Motown schedule a You’re The Man album (catalog number Tamla 316). But when the lead single didn’t cross over Pop, stalling at No. 50, Marvin retreated. Ambivalent about recording, stubborn about moving to Los Angeles with ...

CONNIE CONSTANCE – ENGLISH ROSE

CONNIE CONSTANCE –...

In the current wave of singer-songwriters emerging from the U.K., the 23-year-old artist stands alone, making indie rock-influenced, off-kilter soul with poetic narratives. It's a sound that has turned heads from the NME, i-0, and The FADER, but has few contemporary peers. She's also carving out her own space by writing her own treatments for her fantastical visuals and retains strict creative control over her music. That defiantly singular path is fitting for an artist who says that she has always felt like an outsider.
