YG, DAY SULAN, & D3 UNLEASH FIRST 4HUNNID COMPILATION GANG AFFILIATED EP

(March 5th, 2021 — Los Angeles, CA)  Emerging to the forefront of the culture as a force to be reckoned with, the 4Hunnid Records crew—YGDay Sulan, and D3—unleash their first-ever compilation the Gang Affiliated EP today. It is available now via 4Hunnid/Epic Records.

Stream Gang Affiliated EP HERE.

The seven-track project sees these three powerhouses light up the West Coast and ignite a new era of California hip-hop in the process. On the first track “OP Vibes,” the YG & D3 tear through anxious 808s with tenacious bars and an ominous refrain. Bass-y piano bolts down D3’s bullet-riddled “Yellow Tape” [feat. DDG] before another hard-hitting hook, while airy guitar wraps around “Roxanne.” Everything culminates on the punchy anthem “My Bruddas” where D3 and YG link with Tay2Xs for one last slick salvo. 

Check out the full tracklisting below.

4Hunnid recently paved the way for the Gang Affiliated EP with the bilingual banger “Bailar” by YG and Day Sulan. Inciting critical applause, UPROXX wrote, “Here YG and Sulan show their growing chemistry over the song’s Latin-influenced production, and L.A. Weekly described Day Sulan as “absolutely on the rise.” Meanwhile, Brooklyn Vegan praised how Day Sulan bounces between English and Spanish on this catchy new collab with her 4Hunnid label boss.” The music video has amassed 529K YouTube Views, while the song racked up 665K Spotify streams. The project also boasts “Hit Em Up,” which is approaching 3 million streams. 

Check out the full tracklisting below.

ABOUT DAY SULAN:

Struggle shapes us. Practically forged in fire, Day Sulan rose up from Compton with a fierce, focused, and furious style of her own. Of African-American and Vietnamese descent, she endured a broken home and the trials and tribulations of the hood in Compton. Stripping in order to get by, multi platinum YG rapper and L.A. luminary actually found her at Crazy Girls during early 2019. Welcomed into the 4HUNNID family and putting up millions of streams, Day Sulan spoke out on “Her Story,” off YG’s 2019 opus 4Real 4Real, which shot to #7 on Billboard’s Top 200. Now, she ignites her boldest and biggest bars yet on her upcoming debut for 4HUNNID/Epic Records.

ABOUT D3:

Signed to 4Hunnid Records in 2020, Los Angeles spitter D3locked into an unbreakable groove, dropping one bulletproof banger after another right out of the gate. After the independent success of his Gang Szn EP, he joined forces with YG and Lil Wayne on the hard-hitting “Blood Walk” from My Life 4Hunnid, which bowed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200. He kicked off 2021 by teaming up with YG and Day Sulan for “Hit Em Up, generating just shy of 3 million streams and bulldozing a path for the 4Hunnid Gang Affiliated EP. He will be dropping more music in 2021.

LIZA OWEN SHARES NEW SONG & VIDEO “JOSIE”

(Los Angeles, CA – March 5th 2021) The rapidly ascendant, LA-via-Hampshire, British Cambodian pop star Liza Owen shares an epic new single today, titled “JOSIE” via Epic Records.

Following singles, “Why Aren’t We Having Sex?”, “Getting Good” and “Starry Eyed”, “JOSIE” is yet another formidable addition to her musical arsenal – a soaring and anthemic ballad, albeit one underscored by dark lyrics about a friendship gone sour. Once again, Liza flexes her distinctively genre-bending style and taste, with her powerful vocals and wildly infectious take on modern pop further cementing her as one to watch this year. 

Liza further explains, “JOSIE was born out of a conversation in the car on the way to the studio. I was recounting a story about some recent drama in my relationship regarding an ex of my partners. I was telling my friends & co writers Ali Tamposi

& Paul Phamous that ‘Josie ‘ was back in town… the rest is history” 

“JOSIE” also comes accompanied by a gorgeously widescreen video directed by Aisha Schliessler and shot, appropriately, in one seamless take at the Sunset Hollywood Villa – a staple Bond movie location. At once sweet, strange and oh so slightly sinister – that is Liza Owen to a tee.

STREAM “JOSIE” HERE

RECENT PRAISE FOR LIZA OWEN:

“With darkly glamorous pop-led soundscapes, singer-songwriter Liza Owen has certainly proven that she is an artist to keep an eye on…” – Notion

“Her infectious singles Starry Eyed and Getting Good prove she’s ready to make it big over the next 12 months.” – Daily Star, Ones to Watch 2021

New single ‘Starry Eyed’ takes her music in a potent direction, and it’s the sound of someone coming full circle, realising their ambitions in the process. – CLASH

Liza spins pop upside down and all around, with defiantly unfiltered lyrics, undeniable melodies and unapologetic grit. Originally breaking into the business writing songs for the likes of Selena Gomez, BTS and Carly Rae Jepsen, this past year she has quietly been putting her very own inimitable stamp on music. Owen has all the makings of a smart and deliciously subversive new star, one who stubbornly refuses to sand down her rough edges or present anything less than an image that is 100% authentic.

GLOBAL POP SENSATION ZARA LARSSON RELEASES HIGHLY ANTICIPATED ALBUM POSTER GIRL

ZARA TO HOST EXCLUSIVE LIVESTREAMED CONCERT ON INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY (MARCH 8TH)

“Poster Girl is a dance record from start to finish, fast-paced and symphonic. Larsson falls into every dimension of love with conviction and female autonomy at the core of her performance.” – PAPER 

“A glossy, disco-tinged twist on classic Swedish pop” – BILLBOARD

“Poster Girl brands Larsson as a pop singer with range, one indebted to the perfection that pop music demands while infusing it with the specific honesty that it often curtails.” – ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

(March 5, 2021- Los Angeles, CA) – Today, multi-platinum pop star Zara Larsson releases her highly anticipated album Poster Girl. The 12-track album is empowering, uplifting and deeply personal – showcasing Zara’s growth as a young woman and capturing her vibrant personality. 

Get it HERE via TEN/Epic Records.

“I’ve grown as a person, making this album,” says Zara. “The thread is me growing up, being more comfortable and more confident. I’m not a teenager anymore; I’m a young woman.”

To commemorate International Women’s Day (March 8th), Zara will be hosting an exclusive online concert where she will be performing songs from Poster Girl alongside some of her biggest hits. The livestream will air exclusively on Zara’s YouTube for a limited time courtesy of iconic Swedish business Ikea and presented by Live Nation (subscribe now for more information to follow).  

Zara is also treating fans to two new visuals – a live VEVO performance of the title track “Poster Girl” (watch HERE ) and the lyric video for the track “Need Someone” (watch HERE)

No mere ‘Poster Girl’, Zara Larsson is that new kind of pop star. At just 23-years-old, the Stockholm-based sensation has showcased her sixth sense for hit melodies with a series of chart anthems (“Lush Life”, “Never Forget You,” ”I Would Like,” “Symphony” and “Ruin My Life” to name but a few). Her first international album, So Good, became the second most-streamed debut by a female artist ever on Spotify. Its follow up, Poster Girl, marks without a doubt her arrival at Pop’s Top Table. Mixing some of the musical loves of her life (the dance floor melodrama of local heroes Abba, the empowered R&B of early Rihanna) with themes of female empowerment, fame, and finding yourself, Zara has worked on the record alongside a formidable list of collaborators: from Young Thug (on new single “Talk About Love”) and Max Martin to Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter (Selena Gomez, Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber), Steve Mac (Ed Sheeran, Years & Years) and Camille Purcell (Little Mix, Mabel). 

The full Poster Girl tracklist can be found below:

  1. Love Me Land
  2. Talk About Love feat. Young Thug
  3. Need Someone
  4. Right Here
  5. Wow
  6. Poster Girl
  7. I Need Love
  8. Look What You’ve Done
  9. Ruin My Life
  10. Stick With You
  11. FFF
  12. What Happens Here 

About Zara Larsson

All women have superpowers. Wielding those superpowers, Zara Larsson provokes and pushes pop music and culture forward with empowered, enlightened and energized anthems that soar and seduce all at once. With every move, she continues to quietly make history and break records. Her RIAA platinum-certified 2017 full-length, So Good, notably stands out as “the second-most-streamed debut on Spotify by a female artist ever,” eclipsing 5.5 billion streams. Her growing catalog boasts one smash after another, including the triple-platinum “Never Forget You” with MNEK, the platinum “Lush Life” and “Ain’t My Fault,” and, most recently, 2019’s gold “Ruin My Life.” Out of dozens of nominations, she has received various awards and honors at the Swedish Grammy Awards, Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, MTV EMAs, and more. Gracing the stage of the 2017 Nobel Prize Peace Concert, she performed the platinum“Symphony” with collaborators Clean Bandit. Emerging from lockdown in 2020 with a fierce, focused, and feminine fire, Zara arrives with a bold and boundary breaking body of work for her forthcoming international album.

Blown away by her Roddy Ricch freestyle, he reached out. Mia hopped in the car, drove straight to Miami, and they met in person as she signed to Rico’s Division1. Now, she formally introduces herself with “What Was I Thinking.”

BAHARI RELEASES NEW SINGLES “BIPOLAR” AND “JACKIE KENNEDY”

(Get artwork and press photos HERE)

(March 5, 2021 – Los Angeles, CA) – Today, rising alt-pop duo Bahari return with two new singles entitled “Bipolar” and “Jackie Kennedy. Get “Bipolar” HERE and “Jackie Kennedy” HERE via Bahari Music, LLC/Epic Records and watch the official music video for “Bipolar” HERE.

Both songs embrace the duo’s unique talent in making the extremely personal universal.  “Bipolar” bottles the ups and downs of a manic relationship into a piano-laden, emotional meditation. Strains of soft keys echo beneath a lyrical push-and-pull punctuated by the reprise, “Sometimes, I love you. Sometimes, I hate you. The glitchy bridge breaks underneath the weight of one resounding confession, “I’m fucking crazy for you.” The accompanying music video juxtaposes the bliss of two couples with relationship tension and strife. It depicts the girls—Ruby Carr and Natalia Panzarella—in the throes of this tumult with claustrophobic closeups and intense vignettes. S

Says Ruby, the song “represents the polarizing ups and downs of a relationship. The feelings of being everything to someone, yet nothing at all. This song highlights the push and pull and emotional rollercoaster of being in love. How beautiful it can be but also how hard it is. It’s about our first real love that each of us experienced, and how challenging it can be trying to maintain a healthy relationship whilst struggling with our own mental health, and how deeply ones mental health can affect a relationship. It’s about that burning passion, high highs and lowest of lows.”

Meanwhile, “Jackie Kennedy” sees the girls open up like never before. Written in a ten-minute rush of inspiration, Natalia details the tragic loss of a significant other between stark piano and strings. It exhibits empathy for First Lady Jackie Kennedy with the tear-filled chorus, “We lost a lifetime you and I.

On “Jackie Kennedy,” Natalia says, it “was a song that came out of one of the hardest times of my life. I had just lost someone very suddenly that I was deeply in love with and it was the first time I had someone close to me pass. It was so isolating because of all of the emotions I was feeling that I never really processed the grief until I wrote this song a few years later. I never had any intention of this song leaving my bedroom, but after realizing it helped me I can only hope it can at least be a moment of feeling that someone understands. Right now more than ever we have to check in on each other and be there for one another. It’s okay to feel sad, but it’s really fucking scary feeling alone.” 

Stay tuned for the premiere of the music video, coming later this month. 

These songs follow up last year’s Waking Up The Neighbors and “Savage” remix featuring rapper BIA.  Fall into Bahari’s embrace now. Be on the lookout for more music soon.

Bahari Management: William Derella

About Bahari:

Every so often, two separate journeys collide to form the perfect union in just the right place at just the right time. Bahari blossom from a similar confluence of circumstances. Singer and keyboardist Ruby Carrhails from the tiny island of Lamu off the coast of Kenya, while singer and bassist Natalia Panzarella was born in Nashville but grew up in Southern California. Each of their experiences shapes a dynamic, diverse, and dark take on alternative pop. Generating over 650 million streams and receiving acclaim from LadygunnNylonBillboardOnes To Watch, and more, the Los Angeles-based duo bring a shared vision to life.

After meeting at a songwriting session at 16-years-old, the girls formed a lifelong bond. Shortly after, Bahari initially made waves with “Wild Ones, which generated close to 40 million Spotify streams. They maintained a consistent pace with the Dancing on the Sun EP [2016] and singles “Get Together” and “Fucked Up. Along the way, they supported Selena Gomez and Birdy on tour and teamed up with Zedd, ILLENIUM and Grey for collaborations. After quietly grinding, Bahari earned a viral hit with 2018’s “Savage,” which took on a second life in 2020 with an official remix featuring BIA. Not has did the song generate over 100 million total streams, but the original version also went Gold. Last year, the duo also contributed to the To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You Original Soundtrack. 

Now in partnership with Epic Records, the pair are gearing up for even more new music coming soon.

CHEVELLE RELEASE NEW STUDIO ALBUM NIRATIAS TODAY

(New York, NY – March 5, 2021) – Today, multi-platinum rock band Chevelle unveil their anxiously awaited ninth full-length album, NIRATIAS [Epic Records]. It is available HEREUpon going live, it catapulted to #1 on the iTunes Rock Albums Chart, and #2 on the overall Albums Chart.

Prior to its arrival, the band unloaded a salvo of singles, all released to acclaim. Lead single “Self Destructor” has already eclipsed close to 5 million streams globally and over 1 million YouTube views on the music video. After emerging as the “#1 Most Added Song, it just broke into the Top 3 at Active Rock, adding to their robust catalogue of hits. Closing in on over 2 million streams, “Peach” garnered critical acclaim right out of the gate. Consequence of Sound praised it as “a grand musical statement from Chevelle.” Meanwhile, “Remember When” also continues to gain traction with Loudwire complimenting the track, noting it’s “spiraling guitar line and propulsive beats,” along with Pete’s “pained and strained emotional vocal.”

NIRATIAS is an acronym for Nothing Is Real and This Is a Simulation, and it represents the band at their dimension-blurring best.  The body of work twists and turns through crushing guitars and haunting melodies like a cosmically heavy roller coaster at the edge of existence. The instrumental opener “Verruckt” sets the tone with its gnashing distortion and laser-precise groove. “So Long, Mother Earth”doubles as a eulogy for our planet carried by an overpowering scream and searing solo. Clocking in at almost six minutes, “Ghost and Razor” culminates on one final distorted exorcism before a pensive spoken word echoes barely above a whisper on “Lost In Digital Woods.

NIRATIAS stands out as the band’s most pummeling and provocative record yet. Teaming with longtime producer Joe Barresi, Chevelle recorded throughout 2019 and 2020 and pieced together an intriguing and inimitable body of work, with themes that will reveal themselves soon.  The album artwork is by Boris Vallejo. The famed and award-winning artist is responsible for the posters used for films like Knightridersand National Lampoon’s Vacation, as well as iconic 70’s and 80’s science fiction novel covers and magazines (such as Heavy Metal).  

Throughout their career, Chevelle have transformed rock music as tried-and-true outliers. The multiplatinum Chicago rock band have generated close to 1.7 billion global streams, earned seven number one hits, and sold out shows worldwide. Their catalog spans the double-platinum Wonder What’s Nexthighlighted by the double-platinum smash “The Red” and platinum “Send The Pain Below” as well as the platinum This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In) and gold Vena Sera. They’ve landed four Top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top 200, including Sci-Fi Crimes [2009], Hats Off to the Bull [2011], La Gárgola [2014], and The North Corridor [2016]. The latter two each captured #1 on the Top Rock Albums Chart. 

With NIRATIAS, get ready to lift off with Chevelle as they elevate into another stratosphere in 2021.

01.  Verruckt

Along the way, she garnered praise from tastemakers, including HYPEBEASTBillboardOkayplayerEssence, Noisey, Uproxx and more.  In 2019, Kanye West sought her out to perform as part of the historic Sunday Service at Coachella 2019 and Anderson .Paak also invited her on the road to finish up the year as she began recording her next chapter. In 2020 after touring with The Free Nationals and appearing on NPR’s highly revered Tiny Desk,  India reintroduced herself to the world with her new chapter of music with a stream of steady releases including her latest releases “Cali Love”, “Not Too Deep” featuring 6lack and  “Movin’ On” featuring Anderson .Paak, the latter which has already garnered over 1 million worldwide streams.

MADISON BEER RELEASES DEBUT ALBUM LIFE SUPPORT TODAY

PURCHASE TICKETS FOR MADISON BEER PRESENTS: LIFE SUPPORT IN CONCERT HERE

(New York, NY) February 26th , 2021- Today Madison Beer releases her highly anticipated debut album, Life Support, nine years to the day since her first post on YouTube. Candid, audacious and sonically eclectic, Life Support is a strong personal and artistic statement from a self-made star who refuses to play by pop’s usual rules. It sees Madison where she thrives – commanding creative control through writing her own songs, producing and creating her own visuals. 

Expressing and inspiring a rollercoaster of emotionsthrough spellbinding vocals over a broad-ranging sound-bed reflective of Madison’s own diverse musical tastes, Life Support is experimental, honest and ardent. The album explores mental health, the dizzying highs and rock-bottom lows of toxic relationships and the atypical life that Madison has led since famously being discovered on YouTube at age 12.

“Writing songs is like therapy for me.” says Madison. “That’s why this album is called Life Support. It helped me get rid of the darkness and see the light. My inspirations sonically are really diverse. I guess I’m not an easy artist to pigeonhole, and a lot of these songs are like nothing I’ve ever attempted before. All of me is laid bare on this album; it’s been a really fulfilling experience to create something that feels so true to myself. Making music taught me a safe way of being vulnerable. It forced me to put my feelings into words, to hold a mirror up to myself and translate that into something tangible. There was a time in my life where the promise of going to the studio was the only thing getting me out of bed in the morning. I’m not exaggerating when I say it’s my lifeline. I can put something into a song and then let it go, send it out into the world. When fans tell me I’ve put a voice to something they’ve been feeling, it’s as affirming for me as it is for them.”

Alongside previously released singles “Good In Goodbye”“Selfish”, “Baby” and “BOYSHIT” (which have a combined stream count of over 500 million), Life Support highlights includethe melodramatic, shape-shifting “Default”;  the otherworldly “Homesick” with its Rick and Morty sample (an homage to Madison’s favorite TV show); The Matrix-inspired “Follow The White Rabbit” set to throbbing bass, tolling bells and twanging guitar; and the country-tinged album closer “Everything Happens For A Reason” – a last look back before moving on. Madison will be performing “BOYSHIT” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on March 1st.

Madison will perform the album in full for the first time at Madison Beer Presents: LIFE SUPPORT IN CONCERT – a fully stylized, globally streamed concert which Madison has developed in partnership with Headliner. The innovative concert will take place at www.headliner.live on March 6th and 7thacross five time zones (see below for full schedule). Tickets are available to purchase now here.

Prior to signing with Epic Records in 2019, Madison Beer achieved unprecedented success as an independent artist with her partner First Access Entertainment. Her debut EP As She Pleasesmade her the first independent female solo artist to break into the Top 20 radio charts, after having debuted in the Top 5 on iTunes in 18 countries and in the Top 10 in 42 countries worldwide. 

Globally, Madison has independently amassed over 3 billion streams across her catalogue and built a huge, engaged and ever growing fanbase on social media with 22.5 million followers on Instagram13 million on TikTok and 3 million on Twitter. She has attracted the endorsements of NME, The Guardian, V Magazine, Paper, Rolling Stone (who hailed her a “rising popstar”) and Billboard who said recent single “BOYSHIT” “makes a late case for one of the best pop chorus openings of 2020.” Madison was also tapped as a VEVO Lift artist for 2021, joining alumni Billie Eilish, Halsey, and SZA, and is the MTV Push artist for March.

The long-awaited debut, Life Support, is defiantly Madison, an album written as catharsis, delivered as a document of all she’s experienced and a self-care guide to coming out the other side.

About Stunna Girl:Dripping with attitude and ready to inspire confidence, Stunna Girl is ready for her close-up. “I want you to get off the wall. Don’t just stand there to stand there!” The /singer created a viral frenzy for her 2019 style anthem, “Runway.” After releasing a project independently and inking a deal with Epic Records, she is inevitably poised to be one of Hip-Hop’s most anticipated voices of the new decade. “I’m a threat!” she promises.Born and raised in Northern California, music offered a refuge from a tragic home life. After dealing with a tough upbringing, which saw her having to balance family problems with her own, she knew that she could draw upon her life experiences as creative fuel. Stunna Girl came out of the other side with a newfound sense of confidence and focus, diving headfirst into fulfilling her long standing musical dream. In 2019, she became a major player in the local Sacramento music scene and made waves with her independent debut album, YKWTFGO. When the #RunwayChallenge organically exploded on TikTok, she inspired a viral movement facilitated by millions of videos by fans and influencers such as Nikita Dragun, and more. The song proved so gripping that by the end of the year, TikTok proclaimed her as the fourth top artist on the platform for the year, behind only Lil Nas X, Mariah Carey and Lizzo.Her nimble raps, fearless rhymes, and unapologetic spirit went on to receive attention from TIMEBuzzFeedThe New Yorker, Teen Vogue and more with Pitchfork saying that there is “no question that women especially may find her confidence genuinely empowering”. As she told Genius for their coveted Verified series, she freestyled “Runway” in 30 minutes with the intention of creating a motivational anthem. “When I was in the studio, that’s how I felt. Like, ‘Bitch, you look like you’re fresh off the runway. I really just wanted to keep making music that got people to move.” Now, with her major label debut EP on the way, she’s about to shine like never before in 2020.

ANNIKA WELLS SHARES MUSIC VIDEO FOR DEBUT SINGLE “FUCK BEING SOBER”

(February 25, 2021 – Los Angeles, CA) – Gaining buzz right out of the gate, Los Angeles-based pop singer and songwriter Annika Wells shares the music video for her debut solo single “Fuck Being Sober” today. Watch the Logan Fields (Slayyyter, Rod Wave, Cupcakke)-directed video HERE. Get the song at all DSPs HERE via Vol. 1/Epic Records.

At the beginning of the visual, Annika shakes off her slumber still wrapped in glitter and covered in sharpie. She proceeds to drink her way through the best night ever with her day-one girl gang as whipped cream, fireworks, and loads of alcohol get put to very good use over the course of the evening. The clip brings the song to life with its carpe diem message, youthful bliss, and dizzying nostalgia.

Attracting tastemaker attention, she recently sat down with American Songwriter for an in-depth interview about the song and so much more.

“Fuck Being Sober” sets the stage for more music from Annika coming later this year. In fact, on Valentine’s Day she hopped on Instagram to cheekily tease her new song, “Love Sux,” due soon.

Annika’s voice has coursed through popular culture as a writer and as a vocalist. She has notably penned tracks for acts like The Jonas BrothersPRETTYMUCHBTS, and Steve Aoki, to name a few. Additionally, her vocals powered “Nightlight” by Illenium and “Run It” by Midnight Kids, which both captured #1 at Dance Radio.

“Fuck Being Sober” introduces Annika as an unapologetic, unfiltered, and undeniable new voice for pop. Get ready for a whole lot more soon.

About Annika Wells:

Most people keep personal, embarrassing, and crazy thoughts to themselves. Annika Wells isn’t one of those people. She doesn’t just express these thoughts out loud either. She peppers them throughout her songs with the kind of honesty you expect from your childhood best friend. In her music, she’ll rattle off bucket list ambitions, refer to herself phallically, or write about a doomed romance (with that same ex as her cowriter). After watching her older brother play piano, she started taking classical lessons at the age of four, and eventually ended up at Berklee College of Music in Boston. Before dropping out, she linked up with producer Giulio Cercato and wrote and recorded what would become her first single “Break” in 2016. It caught fire around the world, catapulted onto the Spotify Global Viral Chart, and eventually eclipsed 15 million Spotify streams. She wrote and featured on “Crawl Outta Love” for Illenium, amassing 58 million Spotify streams, reaching the Top 30 on the Billboard Hot/Dance Electronic Songs Chart, and notching the International Songwriting Competition (ISC) Grand Prize. Between performing in sold out arenas across the country with Illenium throughout 2019, she landed a string of major placements as a writer for The Jonas BrothersPRETTYMUCHBTS, and Steve Aoki. After racking up over half a billion-plus streams, she welcomes everyone into her mind and heart on a series of 2021 singles and her forthcoming debut for Vol. 1/Epic Records led by the single “Fuck Being Sober.

LAMB OF GOD PREMIERES VIDEO FOR “GHOST SHAPED PEOPLE” FROM DELUXE VERSION OF CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED SELF-TITLED ALBUM

(February 19, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – LAMB OF GOD has premiered a video for the single “Ghost Shape People,” a track from the upcoming Lamb Of God (Deluxe Version).

The video for “Ghost Shaped People” is available today on YouTube and the band’s website at http://lamb-of-god.com

Directed by Truman Kewley and Eddie Perez, “Ghost Shaped People,” hauntingly shows a man’s journey into the afterlife juxtaposed with a crushing live performance.

The three-disc deluxe edition of last year’s critically acclaimed self-titled album will feature the full critically- acclaimed Lamb Of God record with two bonus tracks and a live version of the album, along with a DVD performance of Lamb Of God on March 26 via Epic Records.

“This album, and in particular, this deluxe edition is something I’m incredibly proud of,” guitarist Willie Adler previously said. “Throughout the process of writing, recording, and the subsequent filming of the live stream, I knew we were creating much more than a collection of songs. Much more than a simple streamed performance. This was focused energy. Energy that, to me, is very tangible. And now, more than ever, in an era where human interaction is so limited, art…..be it music, visual, or otherwise, is a human connection point. And we need as much of that as possible! I hope everyone enjoys this deluxe edition as much as we enjoyed creating it. Thank you.”

Pre-orders for the set are available now. The live CD and DVD portion of the deluxe version features the first of LAMB OF GOD‘s two ultra-successful live stream events from September 2020, in which the band performed their critically acclaimed, self-titled album Lamb Of God in full, plus an encore of four songs including “Ruin,” “Contractor,” “512,” and the debut live performance of “The Death Of Us,” a new song the band wrote and recorded in quarantine for the Bill & Ted Face The Music movie and soundtrack. The DVD includes a new director’s cut with bonus material. Watch the trailer for the deluxe package now at https://youtu.be/ihoFtYAfgEc. Digital copies will contain only Disc 1 and Disc 2. A separate vinyl edition of Lamb Of God – Live From Richmond, VA will also be available.

Originally, released June 19 of last year, LAMB OF GOD’s first new album in five years was met with universal acclaim – not only among major rock journalists, but with all strata of metal fans around the world.  

But critics, media and the industry aside, perhaps the most telling statistic is the year-end US Metal Radio chart, where the new album dominated at #1 by a massive margin (over 2,000 more spins than the album at #2).  Lamb Of God spent nine weeks in the #1 spot and never left the top 10 since debuting on the chart in February. Metal Radio is the lifeblood of the US metal world, largely staffed by college students and regional tastemakers, playing the music that they know their local metal fans want to hear.  

LAMB OF GOD’s self- titled album reached the coveted  #1 spot on Consequence of  Sound’s Top 30 Metal + Hard Rock Albums of 2020, stating, “Along with bringing in the New Wave of American Heavy Metal, LAMB OF GOD have been one of music’s most important acts over the past 20 years. From their phenomenal instrumentation to the potency of their sociopolitical lyricism, LAMB OF GOD remain titans of the genre, continuing to craft remarkable works of thrilling and captivating adrenaline… also proves to be a profound work of heavy metal… perhaps the most important metal album of 2020. It’s not only the album of LAMB OF GOD’s career, but the heavy album of the year.”

At iTunes, LAMB OF GOD has landed at number one on the Overall, Rock and Metal iTunes album chart upon release.

LAMB OF GOD eagerly awaits their return to the road to support Lamb of GodTheir North American co-headline tour with Megadeth and support from Trivium and In Flames has been rescheduled to begin in July 2021 and their headline tour in the UK and co-headline tour with Kreator in Europe will take place in November and December 2021. Tickets for both tours are on-sale at lamb-of-god.com/tour

LAMB OF GOD deliver the album of their career with self-titled effort…This album isn’t just an awesome release from LAMB OF GOD, but a perfect record to unite metalheads as one.” – Consequence of Sound

“There is a world-weary pessimism that permeates right to the bones of LAMB OF GOD’s breathtaking eight LP.” – Kerrang!

“The band has been vocal about the good place it’s in right now, and it shows in these songs.” – Metal Injection

LAMB OF GOD know, after all, that their true essence is a brutish machismo and that they are a vehicle for total catharsis.” – Rolling Stone

“This is a record that’s the most authentic version of the band LAMB OF GOD want to be.” – NME 

“The Virginian metal stalwarts’ self-titled album – their first release with Adler’s full-time replacement Art Cruz – boasts all the neck-snapping technical riffage and burly roars we’ve come to love,” –

Revolver’s  25 Best Albums of 2020.

STALKING GIA RELEASES NEW SINGLE & MUSIC VIDEO “WORSHIP”
“Stalking Gia’s music has a declarative quality that explodes with confidence. The New York-based artist writes songs that are just as unapologetically spirited as the city itself.”
Nylon
“This is a very late night kind of pop. It’s intimate, close… sophisticated and sparse.”
Noisey
“…anelectro-pop wunderkind.”
Earmilk

(February 12, 2021 – New York, NY) – Affirming herself as the femme fatale we need in 2021, acclaimed New York-based alt-pop songstress Stalking Gia returns with a new single entitled “Worship” today. Get it HERE.

Co-written by Gia and Zac Barnett of American Authors, the track integrates her hypnotic vocals into a warm soundscape highlighted by cloudy organ, minimalist percussion, and a shuffling bounce. Lyrically, it espouses a message of self-love inspired by a period of intense self-acceptance for Gia. This culminates on the hook’s plea, “If I could worship me, like you worship me,” uplifted by her fluttering range. The accompanying music video sees her adopt a myriad of personalities who circle around one another until we find the real Gia tied up on TV. Watch it HERE.

The last time we heard from Stalking Gia was on last year’s critically acclaimed “The Kindest Thing.The Line of Best Fit called it “a powerful opening statement, and one of intent, for this exciting artist’s new chapter.” Meanwhile, Wonderland raved, “The breakup song relishes in being positive and leaving dead weight relationships – how could we not stan.

“Worship” serves as the first taste of an immersive project, SEASON ONE, that is set to be released this year and will include various episodic installments along the way. “This is just a period in my life captured in a collection of songs,” says Gia. “That will be every season of art for me. The whole thing is an honest and true reflection of exactly what I was going through at the time.”

Get ready to “Worship” Stalking Gia in 2021.

ABOUT STALKING GIA:  
A cosmopolitan alternative pop femme fatale and the ultimate object of digital obsession, Stalking Gia documents the nocturnal movements of a culture anesthetized by following one another in an endless digital loop, high-fashion fixation, and the thrill of collapse. Generating 20 million-plus streams and receiving acclaim from the likes of Billboard, Galore, Marie Claire, Noisey, Nylon and more, she materializes like a specter in the space between online fantasy and Manhattan’s real-life nocturnal glow. Stalking Gia first came to life via the single “Second Nature. Achieving viral success, the track organically tallied near 12 million Spotify streams and incited a growing buzz. blackbear integrated a sample of “Second Nature” into the track “Wish U the Best” from his gold-certified chart-topping 2017 album, Digital Druglord, and invited her on tour. Meanwhile, she maintained her momentum with the single “Siren” and continued her collaborative relationship with blackbear for her single “Miracles, which landed on New Music Friday playlists worldwide. Her versatile songwriting talents extend beyond her solo material, having written and sang the hook on Raekwon’s 2017 single “Purple Brick Road” featuring G-Eazy. Along the way, she assembled what would become SEASON ONE with producers J&R. Taking an active role, she oversaw arrangement and played piano and guitar on the productions. The project distills snapshots of experiences, capturing a period in time and framing it between online fantasy and stark reality.

 In the end, Gia offers listeners a different sort of escape both online and I.R.L.

“I want you to get lost in my music,” she says. “I’d love to give everyone a euphoric experience. Shut off the outside world and dive into my fantasy. Maybe you can even feel inspired and magical. I do.”

Reupping Axel Foley’s classic theme from Beverly Hills Cop, she shreds through the REEFA produced beat with teeth bared and knockout bars on point.

It all sets the stage for the arrival of her debut EP—coming very soon. 

She capped off a breakout 2020 with “Rotation.” Not only did it generate just shy of 1 million total streams and views, but it also received critical acclaim. FLAUNT Magazine raved, Stunna Girl is the definition of a bad bitch who’s ready to take over the rap game single-handedly.

She dropped a succession of bangers last year. “Runway” clocked 31 million Spotify streams and sparked the #RUNWAYCHALLENGE with nearly 4 million Tik Tok creates. “Like I Said Tho” and “Lil Boy Cash”increased her momentum, while “Rotation (Game Mix)” graced the Madden 2K21 Official Soundtrack. 

Get ready for more smoke from Stunna Girl

About Stunna Girl:Dripping with attitude and ready to inspire confidence, Stunna Girl is ready for her close-up. “I want you to get off the wall. Don’t just stand there to stand there!” The /singer created a viral frenzy for her 2019 style anthem, “Runway.” After releasing a project independently and inking a deal with Epic Records, she is inevitably poised to be one of Hip-Hop’s most anticipated voices of the new decade. “I’m a threat!” she promises.Born and raised in Northern California, music offered a refuge from a tragic home life. After dealing with a tough upbringing, which saw her having to balance family problems with her own, she knew that she could draw upon her life experiences as creative fuel. Stunna Girl came out of the other side with a newfound sense of confidence and focus, diving headfirst into fulfilling her long standing musical dream. In 2019, she became a major player in the local Sacramento music scene and made waves with her independent debut album, YKWTFGO. When the #RunwayChallenge organically exploded on TikTok, she inspired a viral movement facilitated by millions of videos by fans and influencers such as Nikita Dragun, and more. The song proved so gripping that by the end of the year, TikTok proclaimed her as the fourth top artist on the platform for the year, behind only Lil Nas X, Mariah Carey and Lizzo.Her nimble raps, fearless rhymes, and unapologetic spirit went on to receive attention from TIMEBuzzFeedThe New Yorker, Teen Vogue and more with Pitchfork saying that there is “no question that women especially may find her confidence genuinely empowering”. As she told Genius for their coveted Verified series, she freestyled “Runway” in 30 minutes with the intention of creating a motivational anthem. “When I was in the studio, that’s how I felt. Like, ‘Bitch, you look like you’re fresh off the runway. I really just wanted to keep making music that got people to move.” Now, with her major label debut EP on the way, she’s about to shine like never before in 2020.

SONG IS THE FINAL RELEASE FROM OSBOURNE’S #1 ‘ORDINARY MAN’ ROCK ALBUM

OZZY OSBOURNE’S “IT’S A RAID” ANIMATED VIDEO DEBUTS TODAY (FEBRUARY 11) AT 7:30 PM (ET)/4:30 PM (PT)

(February 11, 2021 – Los Angeles, CA) – Later today (February 11), OZZY OSBOURNE will premiere a new animated video for “It’s A Raid” from his #1 and acclaimed 2020 ORDINARY MAN album.  The clip will debut at 7:30 PM (ET)/4:30 PM (PT), with OZZY and collaborator Post Malone set to host a watch party beginning at 7:00 PM (ET)/4:00 PM (PT) on OZZY’s official YouTube channel.

At a SiriusXM listening party last year to celebrate the release of ORDINARY MAN (Epic Records)OZZY recounted the song’s inspiration.  While recording Black Sabbath’s VOL. 4 in Bel Air, California, OSBOURNE triggered the home’s security alarm and police surrounded the home, which he says had “piles of marijuana and cocaine.”  OSBOURNE adds, “I’m shouting, ‘IT’S A FUCKIN’ RAIIIIID,” before hiding the drugs and ingesting cocaine while hiding in one of the home’s bathrooms.”

In the video, directed by Tomas Lenert, OZZY and Post Malone team up for a truly wild ride.  The clip begins with OSBOURNE and Malone at the infamous Bel Air, CA house (which served as the inspiration for the song) before they lead police through the streets of the city and passing iconic Los Angeles landmarks on their journey.

“A couple of years ago I didn’t even know who Post Malone was,” OZZY says.  “Since then we’ve worked together on two studio tracks and have performed together twice. Understandably Covid-19 made it difficult to get together to shoot a music video for ‘It’s a Raid’ so we opted for this wildly imagined animated video for the final single from the ORDINARY MAN album.”  OZZY, who’s been in the studio working on a new album with producer Andrew Watt, adds that he “can’t wait to for everyone to hear my new music.”

This marks the second duet with Malone.  The two previously teamed on “Take What You Want” from his Hollywood’s Bleeding album (which they also performed at last year’s “American Music Awards”).  The track was produced by Watt, who collaborated with OSBOURNE for ORDINARY MANas both producer and co-writer.

Here’s some critical feedback on “It’s A Raid”:

BILLBOARD (2-20):  The track is “is a blitz of screaming metal that finds Osbourne in classic spooky grandpa mode, wailing about voices breathing through the phone, never feeling alone and the horrifying revelation that God is actually Satan, and he’s waiting right here for you.  ‘Out in Hollywood, I’ve been locked up for seven days/ I’m never coming out/ Why do i feel my life accelerate/ I’m never coming down,’ Osbourne sings on the chorus over raging, double-kick drums and a wall of high-speed guitars. Leaving behind his hip-hop cadence, Posty straight up sings in his best Ozzy bellow, lamenting, ‘Outside my window, there’s a silhouette/ My rifle’s right beside my bed/ Hold on, I’m runnin’ out of cigarettes/ F–k!’  The thundering track ends with a final raging chorus featuring both singers and some flat-out shouting of the title over a light speed guitar solo.”

ROLLING STONE (2-20) described the song as “the thrashy new track, Osbourne takes the lead with Malone serving as Osbourne’s backup singer and hype man for the rest of the track.”

LOUDWIRE (2-20): “the high-energy number ‘It’s a Raid.’ The blistering rocker lands among the eleven tracks on Osbourne’s twelfth solo album Ordinary Man…A punky but catchy burst of audio, it’s perhaps the most adrenaline-fueled of the growing collaborations between the “Prince of Darkness” and the rock-indebted rapper.

IHEART (2-20): “The explicit track is set at a breakneck tempo and features Ozzy and Malone trading lines before unfolding into a half-time crawl in the bridge.”

SPIN (2-20): “The song is a banger…”

In its first week of release, the critically acclaimed ORDINARY MANOSBOURNE’s first new solo album in ten years–was the #1 rock album in the world, topping multiple charts in its triumphant first week of release.  Worldwide, ORDINARY MAN entered the charts in the Top Ten in seven countries (including America and the U.K.) making it the highest charting album of OZZY’s career.  

ORDINARY MAN marks OSBOURNE’s first new solo music in almost 10 years.  Recorded in Los Angeles, the album features producer Andrew Watt on guitars, Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) on bass and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) on drums.  Beyond the core band, ORDINARY MAN, features a who’s-who of OZZY friends and collaborators including Elton John, Slash, Post Malone, and Tom Morello.

LISTEN TO “THIS IS NOT A LOVE SONG” SINGLE HERE

DELILAH MONTAGU RELEASES NEW EP THIS IS NOT A LOVE SONG TODAY
“Woozy and glowing, but the London pop star packs seemingly endless, subtly insistent hooks into this surrender from a relationship’s dying days” – The Guardian
 
“The hotly tipped singer combines vocal nuance and restraint, nagging hooks, languorous slow-disco grooves and candid lyrics, with beautiful results” – The Sunday Times Culture
 
“Written in Los Angeles with Delilah’s new confidant and acclaimed producer Robin Hannibal the anthemic track charts Montagu’s journey towards self-love and discovering pride in her identity” – Notion
 
“If Lana Del Rey had a British sibling, it would be Delilah. One of the most exciting artists of 2021” – Mahogany
 
“Keep your eye on this one” – L’Officiel

(London – February 5, 2020) – 22 yo London based artist Delilah Montagu today releases her brand new single and EP of the same name This Is Not A Love Song. Lauded by critics as one of the most urgent songwriters of a generation, this new EP is autobiographical in nature and inherently honest in stature, as Delilah marries lived experiences of love, addiction and art into one body of work. 

Listen to This Is Not A Love Song here.

This Is Not A Love Song delves into the cold reality of a loving relationship simply not working. Pretend sees Delilah write cathartically about her loss of self, whilst Faultline is an explicit piece of storytelling which spotlights two addicts falling in love with one another.  On the EP – which also features three previously released tracks – Delilah explores the relationships she’s held with others and that she holds with herself. It’s a diary of the year gone by, a precursor for the year to come. 

Delilah said, “The songs on this EP are about the end of a relationship. They symbolise my inner relationship with myself as well as the experiences I had with my partner.  The rawness and honesty of this EP is very exposing, and it is the most openly I have ever written about my life – which makes the EP very special and close to my heart.”

Track Listing

1. This Is Not A Love Song

2. Pretend

3. Faultline 

4. Us

5. Loud

6. Version Of Me

Delilah also recently filmed a stirring live version of This Is Not A Love Song for Mahogany, which you can watch here.

About Delilah Montagu

It was during the release of the critically acclaimed In Gold EP last year when Delilah was at her worst; who was she? What was she trying to say? Quite simply, she had lost her voice. “I never really told the truth to anyone”, she sings on her debut single Version Of Me, a line that might have been true at the time, but today is defunct, as Delilah emerges more emboldened, self-assured and a more urgent songwriter than ever before.

Where In Gold introduced Delilah with its pensive, soulful rumination on coming-of-age, the new music sees Delilah mature dramatically both as a songwriter and as a person. And, reeling from her recent performance of Drive (a collaboration with Black Coffee, which is the #1 most streamed domestic single on Spotify ever in South Africa) at the online Global Citizen concert, organised by WHO in collaboration with Lady Gaga in response to COVID-19, Delilah’s ambition is unstoppable. 

Delilah released her debut single Version Of Me in 2020, followed by single’s Loud and Us, all of which garnered instant critical acclaim from the likes of The Sunday Times Culturei-DThe IndependentWonderland, Numero, The Guardian and L’Officiel to name a few. 

Inspired by artists such as Leonard CohenCarole KingBon Iver, Billie Eilish, Lizzo and James Blake, Delilah is today finding complete power in her own voice as she takes the reins on the creative processes and becomes the driving force in her relationships. Delilah hopes that her newfound honest vulnerability might help others eradicate their own fears too.
