BUZZING ARTIST MORGAN SAINT RELEASES DEBUT EP 17 HERO OCTOBER 13

(October 13, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA) It feels like magic. One listen to Morgan Saint’s warm delivery, dreamy instrumentation, and lush lyrical poetry, and you’re somewhere else. Opening up that world, the New York songstress releases her debut EP, 17 Hero [Epic Records], today. It’s available HERE.

Since its release two months ago, “You” has already cracked 1.2M streams and counting in addition to breaking in a big way down under on Australia’s Triple J—famous for launching Lorde. Meanwhile, the music video made its debut on Pigeons and Planes who raved, “Saint presents the song’s honest lyrics with a memorable vocal performance that very much lives up to the ‘moody pop’ description she gives her music.” Widespread acclaim continues to pour in from tastemakers such as TIME, Just Jared, Zane Lowe, Office Magazine, Fashion Unfiltered, and more.

With each track penned by Saint, 17 Hero stirs majestic alternative and intimate indie into an artistic and anthemic pop pastiche. The shimmering eighties synths and fingersnaps of “Just Friends” bristle as she coyly asks, “Why don’t we makeout?” Elsewhere, “For God’s Sake” builds from a hushed verse into a soaring refrain, and the buzzing intro of “New Regime” hinges on buzzing tones and a handclap as she carries an angelic refrain to the heavens and back. It’s “Moody Pop,” as she so eloquently describes. Check out the full tracklisting below.

On October 12, she teamed up with Harper’s Bazaar to exclusively unveil the music video for the next single “Glass House.” Be sure to check it out.

It’s shaping up to be a breakthrough fall for the artist. She recently wrapped up dates on the road with Goldfrapp and Banks as well as a standout performance at Baby’s All Right with Charlotte Cardin in Brooklyn. In November, she takes the stage at Live At The Vineyard before performing in major markets on both coasts. Check out the full itinerary below.

Meet pop’s new heroine now.

Born and raised on Long Island, Morgan Saint connected to music during her formative years, learning piano and starting to write songs as soon as she possibly could. A true ingenue, she taught herself how to play guitar and began building a world of her own. Graduating from Parsons New School for Design, she will release 17 Hero EP this fall 2017.

BUZZING UK SINGER-SONGWRITER TOM WALKER RELEASES “LEAVE A LIGHT ON”

(October 13, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA) – Following the runaway success of the international smash “Just You And I” and the debut EP Blessings, Tom Walker releases a brand-new song “Leave A Light On” today via Epic Records. Tom co-wrote the track with Steve Mac (Ed Sheeran/Shape of You, Anne-Marie/Alarm and Pink/What About Us).

Get it HERE. The critically acclaimed UK multi-instrumentalist and singer once again delivers an undeniable, unshakable, and uplifting anthem steeped in simmering soul and rich, resonant production.

In addition, he premiered the song’s music video on VEVO. The clip intercuts a lone boatman lost in the middle of the ocean between intense performance footage of Walker, pouring out his heart in the middle of the woods. This stark juxtaposition clearly conveys and communicates his power and passion.

Watch it HERE.

Right now, he’s about to finish up his first North American tour supporting The Script. Following this successful stateside run, he returns across the pond for a headline run. Check out the full itinerary below!

Walker is finishing up a breakout 2017. Capping off the summer, he unveiled “Heartland”—co-written and produced by Naughty Boy [Sam Smith, Beyonce, Emlie Sandé]. Blessings arrived earlier this year as the lead single “Just You and I” generated over 28 million streams and and Tom’s songs have collectively amassed over 50 millioin streams and counting. Tom has just been added to the Radio 1 “Brit List” alongside J Hus, Stefflon Don, Anne-Maries and Sampha.

His “light” is just starting to shine in a big way!

Walker quietly started to stir up a palpable buzz on this side of the pond back in March. Elvis Duran handpicked him as “Artist of the Month” on NBC’s Today Show. He made his U.S. TV debut on the show with an explosive performance of “Just You And I” and exclusive interview.

Born in Scotland and raised in Manchester, Walker became obsessed with his father’s record collection at a young age, finding inspiration in Ray Charles, The Police, and Bob Marley, to name a few. By 2016, the troubadour uncovered his own sound through layering rap-style production, electronic shine, and traditional acoustic power fueled by dynamic powerhouse pipes. As songs such as “Fly Away With Me” took off, Walker earned the praise of Pigeons & Planes, Clash, Sunday Times, BBC Radio 1, BBC 1Xtra, Beats 1, Earmilk, Complex UK, Source UK, Eargasm, and more. Simultaneously, he’s enchanted crowds on tour alongside the likes of Gallant, Jake Bugg, and more in addition to selling out a run of dates in early 2017.

Signed to Epic Records in the U.S., Tom Walker remains poised to be one of 2017’s most talked about new talents.

WATCH HIS BET HIP HOP AWARDS PERFORMANCE TONIGHT

(October 10, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA) – Multiplatinum Memphis rapper and CMG mogul Yo Gotti will release his brand new album, I Still Am [CMG/Epic Records], in stores and at all digital retailers on Friday October 27, 2017. The pre-order just went live this morning at this link, and it unlocks immediate grat downloads of the platinum smash “Rake It Up” [feat. Nicki Minaj] and the scorching hot new single “Juice” produced by Ben Billions who also produced the #1 platinum selling hit “Down In The DM.”

Flooding social media and the streets, the rapper personally uncovered the title and artwork on his channels. Then, the roll out took over Miami. A fleet of Rolls Royce’s proudly sported the cover as video trucks canvased neighborhoods. Fans chased down towels, glow-sticks, t-shirts, and more. This guerilla tactic set the stage for Gotti to deliver an explosive performance tonight at the BET Hip Hop Awards where he drops a medley of “Rake It Up” and “Juice.” Be sure to tune in at 8pm local time!

“Juice” has already begun to heat up airwaves. Radio One world-premiered the song as part of its coveted “New and Now” segment, jamming it every hour from 10am-8pm today. It officially impacts everywhere on Monday October 16.”

I Still Am serves as the anxiously awaited sequel to Gotti’s seminal 2013 opus I Am—which yielded the platinum hits “I Know” [feat. Rich Homie Quan] and “Act Right” [feat. Jeezy & YG]. Like all proper blockbusters, I Still Am builds on the legacy of the original, but hits harder than ever before. After the raw spitting on “Betrayal,” our star delivers another bona fide banger in the form of “Save It For Me” [feat. Chris Brown & Meek Mill] while “One on One” [feat. Meek Mill & YFN Lucci] showcases three of hip-hop’s best and brightest talents. “Yellow Tape” [feat. 21 Savage] cautions the competition with unbreakable mic bravado, and “Oh Yeah” [feat. French Montana] bares the DNA of a smash. Check out the full tracklisting below!

“Rake It Up” also shows no signs of stopping or slowing down. Recently minted platinum by the RIAA, Gotti ignited late night television on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon for a powerhouse performance of the track. To date, it has raked up over 65 million Spotify streams and 89 million YouTube/VEVO views and counting.

TIDAL will exclusively release a documentary also titled “I STILL AM,” which follows Yo Gotti across the country as he prepares for the release of his newest album on October 27. Fans can check out TIDAL.com/YoGotti to be the first to learn more. Yo Gotti and TIDAL previously partnered for the exclusive release of the “Rake it Up” visual as well as a livestream of the “White Friday” concert. Gotti will also be performing at the TIDAL X: Brooklyn charity event on October 17th. Fans can watch the livestream on TIDAL.com/Brooklyn.

After quietly and passionately grinding for over 15 years, Yo Gotti’s hustle paid off big time in 2016. His fifth full-length album, The Art of Hustle [CMG/Epic Records], captured #4 on the Billboard Top 200, marking his highest chart bow yet. It spawned the platinum-selling smash “Down In The DM,” which not only dominated radio, but it even entered the modern lexicon as a popular phrase! In between TV performances and appearances on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, The Real, and BET, he played to sold out crowds every night on The Endless Summer Tour with G-Eazy, Logic, and YG all summer long. He capped the year off with the explosive White Friday. 2017 saw him light up the road with Meek Mill and turn up with another smash “Rake It Up” [feat. Nicki Minaj].

Now, I Still Am stands out as the ultimate hip-hop sequel and Gotti’s boldest work to date.

After entering an old school speakeasy, she takes the stage with roaring twenties-style gangster swag on fleek completed by a dove white fedora.

“Incapable” first got critics and fans buzzing last month. It’s quickly approach 1 million Spotify streams in addition to receiving widespread acclaim.

BLADE RUNNER 2049 ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK OUT OCTOBER 5

(October 3, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA) Alcon Sleeping Giant (ASG) Records, under exclusive distribution through Epic Records, will release the Blade Runner 2049 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on Thursday October 5, 2017 at all digital retailers. A special D2C pre-order of the physical album is live now. A true collector’s item and piece of Blade Runner 2049 history, the 2-disc set is numbered and limited to only 2,049 copies. Get it HERE while supplies last. All physical copies additionally unlock a digital download.

The soundtrack highlights the entrancing, ethereal, and enigmatic original score composed by Academy® Award winner Hans Zimmer [Inception, The Dark Knight, Gladiator, The Lion King] and Golden Globe® & Emmy® nominee Benjamin Wallfisch [It, Hidden Figures, Annabelle: Creation]. Original and classic compositions round out this sci-fi noir masterpiece. Finally, the album concludes with an original song by a GRAMMY® Award nominee. Over a backdrop of cyber-infused soul production, it delivers a hypnotic and haunting performance.

Together, Zimmer and Wallfisch sought to continue the incredible musical legacy of the original 1982 Blade Runner by Vangelis, while imparting a piece of themselves upon the score. In order to do so, they implemented vintage synths such as “the star of the score” a Yamaha CS80 from the late seventies as well as modern technological innovations, yielding a rich sonic palette wholly cognizant of this world and the vision of director Denis Villeneuve.

“First of all, I realized that Denis is a director who has a vision; he has a voice,” says Zimmer. “Remember, I’ve done a lot of movies with Ridley Scott. So, it was important that this was an autonomous piece of work. Let’s just be honest. Ridley is a hard act to follow—as is Vangelis. While Ben was four-years-old, I had actually experienced all of this,” he laughs. “We watched and literally, as we stopped watching, we decided on the palette. We decided this wasn’t going to be an orchestral thing. The story spoke to us.”

“We all know what Blade Runner feels like and what that experience is to watch this incredible masterpiece,” adds Wallfisch. The first question we asked ourselves was, ‘How can we reinvent and make it fresh and new, but still be in that world?’ The mission from the beginning was this idea of finding the heart of the film—what is its soul? When you discover the simplest possible theme, it sums up humanity almost. I feel like that’s what we were all striving for towards the beginning of the process.”

In a feature detailing the film’s Oscar potential, Variety highlighted the aural balance that Zimmer and Wallfisch achieve writing, “Zimmer and Wallfisch’s score maintains proper reverence for and distance from Vangelis’ iconic original work.”

Curious fans worldwide, who have been waiting for the official word on Blade Runner 2049’s soundtrack contents, will finally be get their wish when Zimmer and Wallfisch, GRAMMY® nominated soundtrack producer Michael Hodges and soundtrack producers Ashley Culp and Kayla Morrison unveil the track-listing and artists involved. The reveal, scheduled for October 3, 2017 via Facebook live, will feature Zimmer and Wallfisch’s behind the scenes notes on each track, plus a Q&A portion and a surprise appearance by one of the artists featured on the soundtrack.

Tune in to the exclusive Facebook Live tracklisting reveal with Zimmer and Wallfisch on the Blade Runner 2049 Facebook page

Blade Runner 2049 is directed by Denis Villeneuve and stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri and Lennie James, Dave Bautista and Jared Leto.

Alcon Entertainment acquired the film, television and ancillary franchise rights to Blade Runner in 2011 from the late producer Bud Yorkin and Cynthia Sikes Yorkin to produce prequels and sequels to the iconic science-fiction thriller. Cynthia Sikes Yorkin is producing along with Johnson and Kosove. Bud Yorkin will receive producer credit. Additionally, Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble, CEO’s of Thunderbird Films, serve as executive producers along with Ridley Scott and Bill Carraro.

The movie opens in theaters everywhere October 6.

Fifth Harmony WINS Best Pop video!

Fifth Harmony took the VMA stage on Sunday night to accept their fourth award since being crowned 2014’s Best New Artist, and while they were one member down from last year, they were no less enthusiastic about the win.

The Best Pop Video win, for their single “Down,” is the girl group’s first since the departure of Camila Cabello in late 2016, and 5H’s remaining members, Ally Brooke, Lauren Jauregui, Dinah Jane and Normani Kordei, were effusive with their praise for the family, fans and faith that got them through the tumultuous year.

“We are so honored to be up here on this stage. I can’t believe we won another VMA!” Jauregui marveled, as the girls took the stage alongside “Down” collaborator Gucci Mane. “I’m a little bit in shock.”

“This is such a monumental moment for us right now. This is so special,” Brooke gushed, tearing up as she thanked the “Harmonizers” and her fellow bandmates. “I’m so glad we’re in this together. I had a vision for us, and I’m just so grateful for how far we’ve come. I love you guys with all my heart.”

SAVING FOREVER RELEASE NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO “MILLION WAYS”

(August 11th, 2017 — Los Angeles, CA) — Saving Forever share their new single “Million Ways” today via Epic Records. Get it HERE. It’s the latest anthem from the Chicago rock sensation comprised of teen brothers—14-year-old Khaden Harris [lead vocals & guitar], 15-year-old Kye Harris [bass & vocals], and 16-year-old Kavah Harris [guitar & vocals]. “Million Ways” follows the release of the band’s debut single “Twenty 1” earlier this summer.

Kicking off with an unshakable bass line, the song builds into high energy riffing and a wildly chantable refrain. In addition, the boys shared the appropriately raucous and rambunctious music video for “Million Ways.” In the clip, the trio tears it up at a funky karaoke bar, and everyone in the audience gets in on the action taking over the mic. You’ll find a “million ways” to love them after one listen!

Watch it HERE.

Starting to make big waves, Elvis Duran handpicked Saving Forever as his “Artist of the Month.” They make their debut on NBC’s Today Show Monday August 14. Next up, they hit the stage during Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day at the US Open—airing on ABC August 27. Radio Disney recently added “Million Ways” into rotation and NickMusic just named Saving Forever their Fresh Artist of the week next week while the band will also be a guest DJ on NickRadio.

Saving Forever stand on the cusp of a rock ‘n’ roll revolution. Stay tuned for more soon!

Uncovering everything from Ozzy Osbourne to Twenty One Pilots on their Playstation, Saving Forever taught themselves how to play instruments and cover classic rock favorites in the living room. A demo of their first songs landed in the hands of Epic Records, and the label signed the band after one explosive showcase. Now, they’re ready to take over rock—before even graduating high school!

MORGAN SAINT PREMIERES “YOU” MUSIC VIDEO ON PIGEONS & PLANES

(August 11, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA) Buzzing New York singer, songwriter, and storyteller Morgan Saint premieres the music video for her debut single “You” on Pigeons & Planes today!

Watch it HERE.

In the artful visual, the indie enchantress captivates with an elegant and enigmatic performance piece. Over a rich and cinematic production palette, she passionately and powerfully delivers every note before a stunning vocal climax. (Think Fiona Apple channeling Florence + the Machine in a David Lynchian landscape for a reference point and you’re a quarter of the way there!)

About “You,” she comments, “I thought it made sense to share it first, because it sort of sets the stage for the stories that will follow in my upcoming EP, 17 HERO. I see it as the first chapter of a grander story.”

“You” marks Saint’s very first single for Epic Records and introduces her “moody pop” sound and forthcoming major label debut EP—arriving imminently.

Listen to “You” HERE.

Born and raised on Long Island, Morgan Saint connected to music during her formative years, learning piano and starting to write songs as soon as she possibly could. A true ingenue, she taught herself how to play guitar and began building a world of her own. Graduating from Parsons New School for Design, she will release 17 Hero EP this fall 2017.

BIG BOI UNVEILS MUSIC VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “CHOCOLATE” FEATURING TROZÉ

(August 4, 2017 –Los Angeles, CA) Today, seven-time GRAMMY® Award-winning, RIAA diamond-certified hip-hop luminary, producer, and member of OutKast—Big Boi—shares the music video for his latest single “Chocolate” [feat. Trozé].

Watch it HERE.

The clip plays out like a movie. Swagged-out in red head-to-toe like an O.G. player, “Daddy Fat Sax” pulls up in a classic ride with four lovely ladies on the way to a “video shoot.” After this hilarious intro, “Chocolate” ramps up into slick and sexy vignettes edited to flow seamlessly with the danceable groove and booming hook—“cho-co-late.” There’s no song more rich and delicious right now!

Given that style, it’s no surprise Dave Chapelle picked the video to play during his intermission.

Check it out HERE.

As one-half of OutKast, he achieved seven GRAMMY® Awards, sold 25 million records, and created a string of music’s most influential work, including Aquemini, Stankonia, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, and Speakerboxxx/The Love Below—which went RIAA Diamond making OutKast the first and only hip-hop artist in history to win the GRAMMY® for ‘Album of the Year.’ Big Boi’s 2010 solo debut, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, bowed at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 and received unanimous critical acclaim with Pitchfork proclaiming it one of the “100 Best Albums of the Decade ‘So Far'” and topping year-end lists from Time, Paste, Vibe, and more.

His 2012 follow-up Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors enamored tastemakers and fans alike and boasted collaborations with A$AP Rocky, Killer Mike, Kid Cudi, and more.

CAPTAIN CUTS RELEASE NEW SINGLE “COCAINA” FEATURING RICH THE KID & DANIELS

(Aug. 4, 2017 – LOS ANGELES, CA) – Following up their red hot breakout smash “Love Like We Used To” [feat. Nateur], multi-platinum songwriting, production, and remix team Captain Cuts serve up their brand new single “Cocaina” [feat. Rich The Kid & Daniels] today.

Listen to it HERE. Get the single HERE via Epic Records.

Chopping up lines of funk guitars, island swagger, and atomic pop, the song settles into an addictive audio groove that’s immediately impossible to shake. Rich The Kid and Daniels join the fun with catchy cameos before culminating on the intoxicating chant—“Co-ca-i-na!”

About the song, Ryan McMahon of Captain Cuts shares, “We had just come back from a week of writing in Nicaragua with Daniels and a couple friends. Sitting in our dark studio in L.A., we were imagining ourselves back on the beach in Nicaragua and came up with that acoustic guitar riff and all of the Latin percussion. The vibe definitely felt like the lyric needed to be fun and not serious. So, we started talking about falling in love with a party girl who may or may not be a drug dealer…And ‘Cocaina’ was born.”

It’s the ultimate party anthem…

It’s been a busy summer for the boys. They performed their debut show at Summerfest on July 4th with The Chainsmokers and produced the new Neon Trees single “Feel Good,” also out today. Stay tuned for the unveiling of the fittingly outrageous and awesome “Cocaina” music video, premiering very soon as well as more surprises from these pop mavericks.

With over 10 million cumulative Spotify streams and counting, “Love Like We Used To” properly introduced the group’s patented “Retro-Future Pop.” Entertainment Weekly called it one of the “100 Best Songs of 2016,” proclaiming, “Good luck trying to sit still.” Idolator described it as “an unashamedly romantic and radio-friendly earworm,” and Fuse dubbed it, “a major tune.” It’s already amassed over 6 million cumulative streams on Spotify so far.

It’s very possible you’ve already sung along to a Captain Cuts song. Since their 2010 formation, the award-winning multiplatinum-certified songwriting, production, and remix team has left an indelible mark on pop music. The lifelong friends and Los Angeles natives co-wrote the inescapable triple-platinum “Shut Up and Dance” with Walk The Moon and wrote and produced Grouplove’s platinum “Tongue Tied,” Halsey’s “Roman Holiday,” Tove Lo’s “Crave,” Bebe Rexha’s “I Got You,” and more as well as songs for Jennifer Lopez, Tegan and Sara, and many others. They’ve also done official remixes for the likes of Britney Spears, Imagine Dragons, and Ellie Goulding, to name a few. The trio broke genre barriers, mashing up turn-of-the-century emo and rock staples from Blink-182, Paramore, and Say Anything with current pop hits from Fetty Wap, Selena Gomez, and Drake on the 2015 mixtape If You’re Listening It’s Never Too Late and earning praise from Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone, Spin, Billboard, and Alternative Press, along the way. After a meeting with the Epic Records A&R team, the label signed them as artists, kicking off their next evolution.

WRABEL RELEASES NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO FOR “THE VILLAGE” IN WAKE OF TRANS MILITARY BAN 
PENS MOVING AND HEARTFELT LETTER

(August 1, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA) Tired of staying silent in the face of oppression and injustice, critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Wrabel bravely speaks out with his new song “The Village,” accompanied by an impactful video created in partnership with Spotify. Featuring trans actor August Aiden, the emotional video directed by Dano Cerny gives insight into the difficult experience known all too well to the trans community. Listen to “The Village” HERE and watch HERE.

A stunning anthem of protest, Wrabel holds nothing back and takes a stand with one of his most heartfelt and heavy compositions to date. It’s politically minded. It’s passionate. It’s powerful. It’s purely necessary in these times.

In addition, he penned an open letter regarding “The Village”. You can find it enclosed below.

Letter re: “The Village”

i wrote this song on february 23rd. the day after trump took away federal protections for trans students in public schools. today i release it, just days after he tweeted to ban trans people from serving in the military.

i just wanted to write a simple song letting anyone that feels like an outsider know that the problem isn’t you, it’s them. it’s the village. not in an aggressive us vs. them way, but just because you are the minority… just because people whisper “freak” when u walk down the hall… all of these things… it’s so hard out there… i know it is. these things aren’t pointing towards something wrong with YOU they’re pointing to a humongous problem with the majority… the “them”. there’s nothing wrong with you, there’s something wrong with the village.

two of my biggest supporters are trans teenagers. i’ve had the chance to meet their families. to get to know them. to hear about their struggles and dreams. hi. if you guys are reading this, i need to say thank you. thank you for being YOU. thank you for being honest and courageous and bold and vulnerable and transparent and true. you inspire me to be myself. you inspire me to be fearless in my self expression. my heart breaks for you. what this man is saying and doing. it has to stop. he is giving the village permission to hate. to look at those who are different as wrong and lesser than. i don’t know how else to raise my voice than in a song. and so, i wrote a song for you.

i came out as gay at around 23. i grew up in the church. i came out into a church in los angeles that called it “same sex attraction”. it was wrong. i was wrong. it was evil. i was evil. “unnatural” they called it. “unnatural” they called me. i can’t pretend like i know what it’s like to be trans. to feel those feelings and know those struggles. all i can do is try to speak up and try to relate.

there’s nothing wrong with you, there’s something wrong with the village.

Join Wrabel as he stands up for change and speaks out.

Rather You Than Me represents the apex of the rapper’s catalog thus far. There are moments of soulful emotion on the likes of “Apple of My Eye” [feat. Raphael Saadiq] and pure rap fireworks during “Powers That Be” [feat. Nas] and “Dead Presidents” [feat. Future, Jeezy, & Yo Gotti]. It holds quite a few surprises too including “Idols Become Rivals” [feat. Chris Rock] and the stunning “Maybach Music V” [feat. Dej Loaf]. See the whole tracklisting below.

Now, Rather You Than Me marks the beginning of a new era for Rick Ross and rap music.

“Untouchable” is the best way to describe Rick Ross’s decade-plus run at the top of rap. Along the way, he achieved five Billboard Top 200 #1 debuts and three #2 debuts, received four Grammy Award® nominations, graced the cover of Rolling Stone twice, and made history more than once. His debut single “Hustlin’” became the “first mastertone ever certified RIAA platinum before the associated album had been released.” He sold millions of singles and albums and cemented his status as one of rap’s biggest and brashest voices. Moreover, he founded Maybach Music Group home to Meek Mill, Wale, and more. Signing to Epic Records in 2016, his “untouchable” streak continues with Rather You Than Me.
