BLAC YOUNGSTA BACK WITH NEW SINGLE MUSIC VIDEO “I MET TAY KEITH FIRST” FEATURING LIL BABY & MONEYBAGG YO

(October 30, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – Continuing an unbelievable run in 2020, gold-certified Memphis, TN rapper and Heavy Camp leader Blac Youngsta unleashes a new single and music video entitled “I Met Tay Keith First” [feat. Lil Baby Moneybagg Yo]. 

Get it HERE via CMG/Epic Records.

It heralds the arrival of his anxiously awaited mixtape F*CK EVERYBODY 3, coming very soon.

One of the hottest collaborations of the Fall, the track brings together three of the game’s most overpowering voices. Blac Youngsta devours the beat with intense rhymes before proclaiming, “I been going hard for the block. Meanwhile, Lil Baby and Moneybagg Yo trade bars of their own. These three titans exude charisma on screen with undeniably hard-hitting performances.

Watch it HERE via Vevo/YouTube.

Blac Youngsta recently crashed the Billboard Top 200 when Code Red—his joint project with Moneybagg Yo—captured #6 on the chart. Receiving acclaim, XXLclaimed, “the CMG signees are conjoining their distinctly southern sounds on the 13-song project Code Red.” As they say, it’s up there and it’s stuck up there.” Meanwhile, Hot New Hip Hop wrote, 13-track project is filled with all of the familiar Grind City sounds that fans have grown to love.”

However, he’s hungrier than ever on F*CK EVERYBODY 3. Stay tuned for more.

Get ready!

Rising up from Memphis, TN, Blac Youngsta quietly lifted himself to the forefront of hip-hop with a string of gold-certified hits and tastemaker-approved projects. Following an independent grind, legendary Yo Gotti personally signed him to CMG. In 2018, Blac Youngsta’s CMG debut, 223, popped off with two gold-selling smashes—“Booty” and “Hip Hopper”—as well as “Heavy Camp” [feat. Travis Scott] and a blockbuster remix of “Booty” [feat. Chris BrownJeezy, & Trey Songz]. Leading his own Heavy Camp crew, he only increased this momentum with 2019’s Church On Sunday and its accompanying documentary of the same name. In 2020, he claimed a spot in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 when he joined forces with Moneybagg Yoon Code Red. Now, he issues his most impactful and infectious statement yet on F*CK EVERYBODY 3.

On “Tweakin, a foreboding beat convulses under thick 808s as the pair tighten their grip on every bar. Between Future’s confession “Conversing with my demons any time I get high” and Doe Boy’s warning “Ain’t nowhere to hide, this trap tour de force instantly hypnotizes.

Between cuts like “Grave Digger” [feat. Young Thug], “Walk Down” [feat. YG], and “Too Playa” [feat. Gunna] and skits from none other than Mike Epps. Beyond acclaim from HYPEBEAST and Lyrical Lemonade pondered, “I would not be surprised at all if Doe Boy begins to enter the class of mainstream rap stars because of it. Streetz Need Me 2 rounded out a breakout year also highlighted by his appearance on Future’s “100 Shooters” also featuring Meek Mill. He’s ultimately primed for a major breakthrough. Signed to FREEBANDZ/Epic, he ignited 2020 by linking up with ESCO on 56 Birdz and turned up in the summer with the solo single “Split It” [feat. Moneybagg Yo]. Now, Doe Boy and Southside ignite a powerhouse partnership on the joint project Demons R Us.

Among hundreds of songs, his discography includes multiple cuts on Future’s 56 NightsDS2Future, and The Wizrd, the mega-collaboration What A Time To Be Alive by Drake and FutureKanye West’s Life of Pablo21 Savage’s Issa AlbumOffset’s Father of 4,  Moneybagg Yo’s 2 Heartless, and more. Not to mention, he aligned with G Herbo for the tastemaker-approved Swervo.

BAKAR RETURNS WITH NEW SINGLE “1ST TIME”

“London’s next gen rockstar”

i-D Magazine 

“Genre smashing, high energy… outrageously fun”

Noisey

“His stardom seems inevitable”

Pigeons & Planes

“Trust me when I say that Bakar is one of the best musical talents that the London has to offer”

Lyrical Lemonade

October 30, 2020—London, UK—Bakar returns with his first new music in over a year. The London artist – who over the last few years has become one of the freshest and most vital new voices in global music – releases a new single “1st Time” today. Get it HERE

“1st Time” is accompanied by a video by director Hector Dockrill, famed for his work with Jorja Smith, Ray BLK, and Skepta among others. Watch it HERE.

Produced by Bakar and longtime collaborator Zach Nahome“1st Time” is set to build on the global success of 2019’s Will You Be My Yellow? EP and its standout sleeper hit “Hell N Back”, which has been streamed over 100 million times to date and spent most of the year on the US alternative charts, where it is currently top 10. Earlier this summer, the song peaked at #1 on the Adult Alternative radio chart for two week, where  it broke a decade-long record set by Kings of Leon.

Much of Bakar’s music pays tribute to classic songwriting, full of warmth and wordplay. However, Bakar’s is an undeniably contemporary take, in part informed by his first generation British experience (“I make black music. We’re hip hop kids – everything comes from that place“) and a network of likeminded global collaborators and peers: whether collaborating with Kenny BeatsDominic Fike and BENEE or absorbing knowledge from the likes of SkeptaA$AP Mob or Virgil Abloh. In contrast, he hasn’t had a phone for two years so he can always be focused on songwriting rather than social media, instead spending his time writing songs on the move, whether on the tube or walking the streets. “1st Time” is a perfect example of his unique approach: bursting with originality and uninhibited by nostalgia. 

Meanwhile, Bakar continues to work on a new album. The follow up to Badkid, his acclaimed 2018 debut album, will be released in 2021.

ANNOUNCES DEBUT EP WISH ME LUCK OUT ON NOVEMBER 20

SCRIBZ RILEY SHARES NEW TRACK “ON MY SLEEVE” FEAT. KAASH PAIGE

October 30, 2020 – London, UK – Today, Scribz Riley has shared new track “On My Sleeve” feat. Kaash Paige and announced the release of his eagerly awaited debut EP Wish Me Luck, out on November 20. Listen to “On My Sleeve HERE and pre-order the EP HERE!

Hailing from East London, but residing between London and LA, Scribz has worked with artists such as KhalidH.E.R.J Hus and Cardi B over the last few years, establishing himself as an acclaimed award-winning producer and songwriter, notably achieving two Grammy awards along the way. 

With an edgy sound that blends multi-genres with R&B and Rap, Scribz has introduced himself as an artist in his own right this year with the singles “East Side,” “Impress Me” feat. Headie One and “Mandy,” cementing himself as a name to watch. Having clocked up almost 4 million streams, he has received playlist support from the likes of 1Xtra and been tipped by the likes of Complex, Notion, GRM Daily and Flaunt

Building an impressive and unique body of work through each release, “On My Sleeve” is the final track to be released ahead of his debut EP, which is available as an instant grat with all pre-orders. With a smooth rap flow and a slick beat, it is a brooding track about not falling headfirst, complimented by the soulful stand out vocals of 19-year-old American singer-songwriter Kaash Paige. Scribz says; 

I was the kind of person who used to always wear their heart on their sleeve, but that didn’t always work out for me, so now I tend to move with my guard up, as it’s safer that way. The song is a self-refection of that realization.”

“I had been listening to Kaash Paige’s “Parked Car Convos”, then I hit her up on insta, sent her the track, she f*cked with it and sent me over her verse, she killed in man, big up Kaash.”

Anticipation has been steadily building for debut EP Wish Me Luck. A musical statement of intent from Scribz, marking that moment before he made the switch to artist as well as producer, it will feature all four singles above alongside a host of brand-new unreleased tracks. 

While Wish Me Luck signifies the final part of Scribz’ first chapter, it’s just the start of the remarkable musical journey yet to come.

GIVĒON ANNOUNCED AS APPLE MUSIC UP NEXT ARTIST

Apple Music today announced Epic Records R&B singer-songwriter Givēon as the latest addition to its Up Next program, Apple Music’s monthly artist initiative geared towards identifying, showcasing and elevating rising talent. 

Givēon’s voice is undeniable and uniquely his own with a distinct baritone and thoughtful approach to songwriting. The Long Beach, California, native’s deeply personal lyrics and elegant production choices have made his 2020 Take Time EP one of the most critically acclaimed R&B projects of the year, and a perfect lead-in to his newly released When It’s All Said And Done EP. The latter wasreleased on October 2 and currently #1 on Apple Music’s top R&B albums chart in 7 countries. Across Apple Music, Givēon has over 70 million worldwide streams since first appearing in 2019 across major tentpole playlists like R&B NowFuture HitsBreaking R&B, Mood.Brown SugarSmooth & EasyMe & BaeUp NextTearjerkersDate Night and New Music Daily. In February 2020, Givēon got the official Drake co-sign after appearing on “Chicago Freestyle (feat. Givēon)” and peaked at No. 144 worldwide on the global Shazam charts.

“This is my first time I truly spoke about my journey in detail so the fact that it’s with Apple is unbelievable. I never would’ve thought it would happen this way. This is a dream come true and it makes me extremely excited for the future. “

“Givēon’s unique baritone voice and his ability to craft relatable songs about love and heartbreak make it easy to get lost in his music,’ said Apple Music host Nadeska. “On his second EP, When It’s All Said and Done, the Long Beach singer once again showcases his strength for storytelling by taking us through the emotional progression of a relationship gone wrong.”

In his Up Next film out today, Givēon traces his journey from singing “Happy Birthday” at family gatherings and working in a Bubba Gump shrimp suit to a million streams, which was simply a humble wish at the beginning of 2020. In his quest to find a way to use his silky voice to make magic, he’s emerged as one of R&B’s most striking voices. “Now I know someone likes my music and my voice, they actually like it,” he says. “It’s an acquired taste. That’s when I realized I’ll have real, genuine fans.”  

Additional Up Next campaign moments include a Jimmy Kimmel Live! performance on November 2 and a FaceTime interview with Apple Music’s Nadeska also airing today, where he discusses his inspirations, how far he’s come, and where he still wants to go.

NOTE MARCATO’S DEBUT ALBUM BEACHBUM LIMBO OUT TODAY

SHARES MUSIC VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “CROSS EYED HIKE”


(October 2 – New York, NY) 
– Asserting himself as the culture’s most unapologetic outlier, buzzing artist and producer Note Marcato unleashes his debut album BeachBum Limbo today. 

Get it HERE via Epic Records.

He set the stage for the record with the recent anthem “Rafiki.” Its hypnotically hyper music video just cracked 101K YouTube views. FLAUNT described BeachBum Limbo as “an oceanic body of sound that offers waves of colorful vibes and emotions,” and The FADER appropriately crowned him, “the new bad guy on the block.

To celebrate the release, he just dropped the music video for his new single “Cross Eyed Hike.”

His music performance bursts with originality, as he shows off his vocal dexterity over hard hitting 808s and cinematic instrumentation. Marcato flexes his Cardinal character embodiment, as he shape shifts into chilling and eerie vocals, while captivating the audience with a knowledge of performance one would only expect from a seasoned vet. 

In the video, Marcato is “an immortal being on a journey through time to save the one he’s sworn to protect while one man stands in the way of his destiny,” says Directors Art Okoro & Luc L’amour. Donning his signature el Día de los Muertos face-paint Marcato transforms into his alter ego Cardinal, embracing his other side in a Western Anime showdown. All kinds of madness ensue in this outrageously surreal world. 

Watch the visual to find out what happens… 

Check it out HERE via Vevo/YouTube.

The 13-track project plays out like a warped and wonderful journey past the boundaries of hip-hop and into a new kind of underworld that belongs to Note Marcato. Video game-style keys set an ominous tone for opener “Gura Gura” as he announces, “These are the tales of a BeachBum’s Limbo,” before launching into a melodic croon. Whether it be the entrancing bounce of “Baba Yaga” or vulnerable and vital confessional of the conclusion “In Advance,” he serves up the most unpredictable trip of 2020.

About the album, he commented, BeachBum Limbo is my story so far. It’s everything up to this moment, and it hints at everything to come. I wanted to surprise everyone—including myself. There are no boundaries just Marcato.”

Executive produced by BL$$D, the project features production by G Koop (Rihanna, Migos) and Soundz (Justin Bieber, Chris Brown), with guest vocals from Anatti, Nelson Mandela’s grandson, among others. Ten of the tracks were produced by Note Marcato himself.  You can hear the angst and love within the lyrics as much as the meticulousness the young artist put into each track’s mix. So that the listeners can experience the same energy the 6’4” comet channeled to birth his EP, each song plays chronologically to when it was recorded.   

His face and sound will be long remembered.

About Note Marcato:

Whether introduced to Note Marcato in-person or through his music, there are two characteristics that will remain impressed upon you: the wattage and amorphousness of his star power. The 19-year-old producer and songwriter takes zero form. There isn’t a box that fits him, nor a space he can’t imbue. The only borders associated with the New York University Clive Davis Institute pupil is his professional moniker. Note Marcato is an Italian representation of the 3-4 music note, which is intended to be played the loudest. Marcato’s sound doesn’t prioritize volume as much as it does an exponentially higher standard. The evidence lives on his Epic Records debut EP, BeachBum Limbo, a project not for the times, but of and for many eras, some of which haven’t arrived yet. Note Marcato is a gift from Later.

That Note Marcato’s debut was inspired by blue skies and warm tides makes perfect sense. BeachBum Limbo is an oceanic body of sonic that offers waves of colorful vibes and emotions. It possesses an urgency that belies the age of its author. “I make music as if I’m trying to save the world,” says Note Marcato. His creative intention explains why his singular sound belongs to no particular region yet manages to represent the globe. His modus operandi: Break the rules and create tomorrow.

“Normally your Marcato is the climax of a song or parts of it,” he says. “So I wanted to try and make an entire album where every song is Marcato.”

MOLD-SHATTERING RISING ARTIST EDDIE BENJAMIN RETURNS WITH NEW SINGLE “SPEECHLESS”

(September 25, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – Today, acclaimed and enigmatic singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Eddie Benjamin returns with his brand new single “Speechless.” Along with the release, the Australia-born, Los Angeles-based rising star reveals that he will release his anticipated debut EP later this year. Get “Speechless” HERE via Vol. 1/Epic Records.

On the track, his dynamic delivery brushes up against sparse production by Daniel Gleyzer (Noah Cyrus, AJ Mitchell). Playing every instrument as usual, he calls out to a lover with an incendiary vocal performance. As strings ebb and flow, breathy harmonies curl around a promise on the chorus, “I’ll just stay speechless and speak with my actions and give you the reasons to pick up your phone.”

Of the song, he says, “It’s about the hopeful part of a relationship ending. Musically, it’s colorful, but there’s a darker feeling. It goes through the emotions of losing someone, yet I try to implement hope in the process through the tones.”

After a wave of buzz and mystique, Eddie formally introduced himself with his debut single “Fuck My Friends” earlier this year. In addition to racking up over 2 million streams and counting on his first-ever release, Idolator claimed, Eddie Benjaminmakes a great first impression” before assuring that he’s “certainly One To Watch in 2020.” Additionally, he sat down with Sia for an extensive conversation for Interview Magazine where she referred to him as a “genius.

Rotating between an arsenal of instruments with punchy proficiency and singing with spotlight-grabbing swagger, Eddie Benjamin brings kaleidoscopic color to popular music. Whether nimbly slapping out a fleet-fingered bass groove on social media or belting on an arena stage, the 18-year-old Australia-born and Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer channels fresh fire through a classic approach. Sparking a buzz online, he initially shared viral covers on Instagram. Long hair draped over his face, he would rock an upright or electric bass and sing popular tunes. After catching the attention of Vol. 1, he translated the “I Don’t Get No Sleep Cause of Y’all” meme into a bop and reimagined Sia’s “Chandelier.” Generating millions of views, these uploads made major waves leading to Sia reposting the cover. Moving to Los Angeles, he found himself in the studio working on major releases behind-the-scenes. He has quietly become the ultimate “secret weapon” for some of the biggest superstars and powerhouses in the world as DiploMeghan TrainorRyan TedderSia and Labrinth have all called on him to collaborate, entrusting him as a creative voice. This year, he turned heads with Justin Bieber, who dubbed him “the next generation.” In addition, he co-wrote and performed on “Funk” and “Here to Stay” from Meghan Trainor’s most recent album Treat Myself.

Now officially signed to Vol. 1 and Epic Records, his upcoming debut EP will fully introduce Pop’s newest savant to the world. He will leave you “Speechless,” indeed.

“As the song is about self-destruction and embracing the good, the bad, and the ugly, I wanted this video to show fans the side of me that’s always there waiting to come out and cause mayhem, the side of me that loves to self-sabotage,” Liza says. “Sometimes it can feel like you’re not really getting good at anything, so this was me saying ‘FUCK IT’ and embracing it. I got to shoot it with my friends who play the band in the video. They wrote and produced the song with me, so that was pretty cool to have them involved in every aspect. It was just fun to let loose and get wild on set for this one and to give people a glimpse of what my live show will look like.”

This summer, Liza Owen stepped into the spotlight with the release of her fierce debut single, “Why Aren’t We Having Sex?,” asking the pervasive quarantine question on many people’s minds. The song and its sultry music video premiered exclusively via Flaunt Magazine and gained additional praise from NoisetrendHollywood Life, and Euphoria, who called it “a sexy sonic gem [that] sets the tone for what is hopefully even more spicy music to come from Owen.” Watch the music video HERE.

About Liza Owen

Liza Owen spins pop upside down and all around with unfiltered lyrics, undeniable melodies, and unapologetic spirit. Of Cambodian descent, she originally hails from the English countryside. Breaking into the business, she initially lent her sharp lyricism to the likes of Selena Gomez and BTSas a songwriter. While on a recent writing retreat in Palm Springs with her key collaborators who also happen to be her best friends, she envisioned and enacted her next chapter, building a launchpad for a solo project. As if guided by serendipity, she stumbled upon a pink neon sign with the words, “Why Aren’t We Having Sex?” and used it to illuminate a Studio 54-themed party she hosted. Those words seeped into the concept of her first bold and bright banger “Why Aren’t We Having Sex?” Now, she has all the makings of a smart and subversive star, returning with her next unforgettable single “Getting Good.”

NOTE MARCATO RELEASES NEW SINGLE & MUSIC VIDEO FOR “RAFIKI”

DEBUT ALBUM “BEACHBUM LIMBO ARRIVES OCTOBER 2, 2020 

(September 18 – New York, NY) – Projecting a vision unlike anything else in the game, bold, brash, and buzzing artist and producer Note Marcato uncovers his debut single for “Rafiki”today.  

Get it HERE via Epic Records

Note Marcato took to Instagram Monday evening giving fans a cinematic introduction with a must watch trailer that announces his debut album “BeachBum Limbo” will arrive October 2nd, 2020

To accompany the trailer, he just unleashed the music video for “Rafiki”. With the echoes of a skittering beat, Note Marcato vaults from bouncy verses into a fluttering, yet fiery refrain on the self-produced track. Meanwhile, the avant-garde music video opens with an introduction to “Who Note Marcato is.” It all forgoes asking listeners to raise their hands and instead demands they lift the mask covering societal insecurities.

Watch it HERE via Vevo/YouTube.

He paved the way for the project with the buzzing single Blackheart 39.” Now, “Rafiki” his second single brings us closer of his forthcoming album BeachBum Limbo. Executive produced by BL$$D, the project features production by G Koop (Rihanna, Migos) and Soundz (Justin Bieber, Chris Brown), with guest vocals from Anatti, Nelson Mandela’s grandson, among others. Ten of the tracks were produced by Note Marcato himself.  You can hear the angst and love within the lyrics as much as the meticulousness the young artist put into each track’s mix. So that the listeners can experience the same energy the 6’4” comet channeled to birth his EP, each song plays chronologically to when it was recorded.  

His face and sound will be long remembered.

About Note Marcato:

Whether introduced to Note Marcato in-person or through his music, there are two characteristics that will remain impressed upon you: the wattage and amorphousness of his star power. The 19-year-old producer and songwriter takes zero form. There isn’t a box that fits him, nor a space he can’t imbue. The only borders associated with the New York University Clive Davis Institute pupil is his professional moniker. Note Marcato is an Italian representation of the 3-4 music note, which is intended to be played the loudest. Marcato’s sound doesn’t prioritize volume as much as it does an exponentially higher standard. The evidence lives on his Epic Records debut EP, BeachBum Limbo, a project not for the times, but of and for many eras, some of which haven’t arrived yet. Note Marcato is a gift from Later. 

That Note Marcato’s debut was inspired by blue skies and warm tides makes perfect sense. BeachBum Limbois an oceanic body of sonic that offers waves of colorful vibes and emotions. It possesses an urgency that belies the age of its author. “I make music as if I’m trying to save the world,” says Note Marcato. His creative intention explains why his singular sound belongs to no particular region yet manages to represent the globe. His modus operandi: Break the rules and create tomorrow. 

“Normally your Marcato is the climax of a song or parts of it,” he says. “So I wanted to try and make an entire album where every song is Marcato.”

NEW VIDEO OUT FOR “SUPER HOT” OUT NOW

BLAC YOUNGSTA & MONEYBAGG YO RELEASE THEIR JOINT MIXTAPE,CODE RED TODAY

(September 18, 2020 – New York, NY) – Today marks the release of Blac Youngsta and Moneybagg Yo’s collaboration, Code Red released via N-Less Entertainment/Interscope Records with Epic Records/CMG Enterprises. 

Listen to Code Red HERE.

The Tennessee natives have major history – they both got their start in the same hip-hop group, Memphis Greatest Unrated (MGU) before their careers took off. As the years went by, they went on to work on several tracks together including fan favorite “1 2 3,” an undeniably hard-hitting track that appeared on Bagg’s critically acclaimed album Time Served. The single went on to amass over 140 million streams globally, reach gold status and chart top 5 at Urban radio. With Code Red the pair continues to showcase their electric chemistry, “it felt like some 2pac and Biggie shit the whole time we were recording” Blac Youngsta shares while Bagg stated, “I knew this project was going to be hard, every time we link it’s pressure.” The thirteen-track project includes features from Yo Gotti, 42 Dugg, City Girls, DaBaby and more as well as a video for “Super Hot.” 

Directed by GT Films (Lil Baby, Lil Yachty, Birdman) in “Super Hot” the duo matches their notable energy,“the video shows what you get from me and Bagg every time we do a song together it’s always something SUPER HOT,” says Youngsta. The Tahj Money produced track is a fiery, no-holds-barred banger about being the two being on an entirely different level of status, a level unreachable that the two have both achieved. Earlier this year Bagg told Billboard “every time we get together, it’s a movie” which is evident in the vibrant video filled with fancy bikes, beautiful women, and expensive jewelry.

LIZA OWEN RETURNS WITH BRAND NEW SINGLE “GETTING GOOD”

LIZA OWEN RETURNS WITH BRAND NEW SINGLE “GETTING GOOD”
“Liza Owen could just be the UK’s next breakout pop star.” – Notion
“A hazy yet poised grace that soothes the soul and enchants the ear.” – Complex
 
September 17, 2020 (Los Angeles, CA) – Pop songstress Liza Owen returns to the spotlight unfiltered with her brand new single, “Getting Good” via EPIC Records. Written alongside co-writers Julian Bunetta, Shungudzo, John Ryan, Andrew Haas, and Ian Franzino and produced by ASL, “Getting Good” tells the ultimate story of self-destruction and the lengths we go to leading ourselves down the wrong paths. Listen to the track on all digital streaming platforms HERE, and check out the visualizer HERE.
 
Reminiscent of early 90s guitar-driven grunge, the song opens with a hypnotic rhythm played on the triangle, instantly drawing listeners in. In the chorus, Liza echoes, “I’m getting good at wasting time, With my friends in neon lights, Live a lifetime in one night, I’m getting good at counting cars, Getting good at hating songs, Getting good at getting gone,” fully embracing the song’s theme. “Getting Good” explores the dualities that live inside all of us in a raw, honest, and unapologetic fashion – true to Liza Owen’s nature.
 
“This song is really about self destruction and recognising that sometimes we’re all a bit lost,” says Liza. “It’s kind of a dark song, but there’s also a weird sense of empowerment in just owning that darker side of yourself and all your floors.”
 
Earlier this summer, Liza Owen released her fiery debut single, “Why Aren’t We Having Sex?,” asking the pervasive quarantine question that’s on many people’s minds. The song and its equally sultry music video premiered exclusively via Flaunt Magazine and gained additional praise from NoisetrendHollywood Life, and Euphoria, who called it “a sexy sonic gem [that] sets the tone for what is hopefully even more spicy music to come from Owen.” Watch the music video HERE.

Fiona Apple’s fifth record is unbound, a symphony of the everyday, an unyielding masterpiece. No music has ever sounded quite like it.

–  PITCHFORK

Her first LP since 2012’s ‘The Idler Wheel…’ is the best work of her career

“Time sequestered has not been time squandered: Her first release in eight years is album of the year material.”
