ANNE MARIE – SPEAK YOUR...

Following the launch of her mammoth new single “FRIENDS” alongside Marshmello, Anne-Marie is delighted to announce details of her highly-anticipated debut album ‘Speak Your Mind’, set for release on MAY 4, 2018. ‘Speak Your Mind’ is the rich fruit of the past two years’ work and a hyper-confident artistic statement. On her debut offering Anne-Marie’s playfully infectious pop spirit entwines with her celebrated humour, charisma and idiosyncratic storytelling – attributes that have set her apart from her peers and seen her become one of the UK’s most-loved female breakthrough stars of recent years. A sonic masterclass, ‘Speak Your Mind’ spans a number of personal yet relatable topics that only Anne-Marie could unite so compellingly: album opener “Cry” is a message to the ex-boyfriend who wants you back after ditching you for someone else; the empowering “Perfect” is an ode to self-love and appreciation; the vulnerable “Machine” imagines a world free of ...

OKKERVIL RIVER – IN THE RAINBOW RAIN

OKKERVIL RIVER – IN THE...

ATO Records will release Okkervil River's In The Rainbow Rain, the group's most immediate ‐ and meaningful ‐ album to date. On it, bandleader Will Sheff makes a startling left turn from the their critically‐lauded and inward‐looking 2016 album Away, crafting an exuberant declaration of hope. In place of Away's somber strings and acoustic textures, In the Rainbow Rain is full of dazzling colour, spattered with starbursts of electric guitar, big blooms of synth, and a chorus of backing vocals. It's a buoyant and playful record, but also open and emotionally vulnerable. Sheff says, "I wanted to make a record where a sense of kindness felt encoded into the music." In The Rainbow Rain ‐ produced by Sheff and mixed by Shawn Everett (Perfume Genius, Alabama Shakes, The War on Drugs) ‐ serves as showcase for Sheff's writing and the musical interplay of his new band mates, Benjamin Lazar Davis (bass), Will Graefe (guitar), Sarah Pedinotti (keys) and Cully ...

BLACK STONE CHERRY –...

BLACK STONE CHERRY are set to release their sixth studio album, Family Tree via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group on 27th April 2018.   Family Tree is the much-anticipated follow up to 2016’s Kentucky, which debuted at #5 on the Official UK Album Chart.  Like Kentucky, BLACK STONE CHERRY opted to self-produce and track Family Tree at David Barrick's Barrick Recording in Glasgow, KY, the same studio where the four-piece recorded their eponymous debut.  BSC also opted to not over-rehearse upfront of the album sessions, instead preferring the immediacy and spontaneity of in-the-moment takes.  The band also entrusted frontman Chris Robertson to mix the songs, which perfectly fit the loose, creative process that birthed Family Tree. Family Tree boasts BSC’s tried-and-true lucky number with its 13 songs, and like all BSC releases, features songwriting contributions from each member.  Drummer John Fred tells us, “Family Tree showcases all of our collective musical influences and how we have taken those to create something that is truly our own unique ...

NEIL YOUNG – ROXY...

Neil Young’s Archival 'Roxy - Tonight's the Night Live' Album One of the most sought-after recordings from his vast archives, Roxy - Tonight'sThe Night Live. This was the first public performance of many of the songs that would make up Young's seminal album Tonight's The Night, which would not be released until June 1975. The album's final track "Walk On" would not appear until the release of On The Beach, in July 1974.

The shows took place on September 20-22, 1973. Produced by Young and the late David Briggs, these resultant recordings were mixed by John Nowland with updated post-production and mastering by John Hanlon - along with Chris Bellman - ...

GODSMACK – WHEN LEGENDS...

20 years since the release of their debut album and 20 million album sales later, GODSMACK are an even stronger animal than before. The proof is in the grooves of WHEN LEGENDS RISE, their first album in four years that’s due out April 27 via BMG and marking their debut on the label. WHEN LEGENDS RISE, the band’s seventh studio album, was recorded at their headquarters (GSHQ) in Derry, New Hampshire and produced by Erik Ron and Sully Erna. Sonically intense and layered, it pushes the band forward and kicks off with the title track which begins with tribal-style drums and lethal riffs. “When Legends Rise” speaks to “the band and our journey,” says Erna. “It’s been an amazing road we have traveled through all the ups and downs. But being able to conquer those challenging times with alcohol and egos and everything else that can tear a band apart is ...

DONOVAN WOODS – BOTH WAYS

DONOVAN WOODS – BOTH...

Donovan Woods’ new album is a study in contrasts, as one would expect from its name: Both Ways. “What started the idea was people telling me, ‘You can't have it both ways.’ Or, ‘You can't have a record full of thoughtful lyrics that also gets played on the radio. You can't have those things both ways.’ This is just me trying to have both.” That push‐and‐pull, especially in relationships, has long been Woods’ stock in trade. That perspective has led to nominations for the Polaris Prize and the Juno Awards. In addition, his single “What Kind of Love Is That?” climbed to No. 1 on the CBC Top 20 Chart, while his catalog has accrued over 60 million streams. Woods is also a notable songwriter in Nashville with credits by Billy Currington, Charles Kelley, Tim McGraw and Charlie Worsham. NPR Music stated, "There are very few writers who can make you laugh and break your heart in the ...
