FEBRUARY 21, 2020 – Australian artist Tones And I has shared an alternate version of her single “Never Seen The Rain,” which is available today on all streaming platforms and joined by a live performance video. The expanded take finds Tones And I delivering a powerful and transcendent performance of “Never Seen The Rain,” joined by a choir and three-piece band. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/BxqtS-7GxFM

The alternate version of “Never Seen The Rain” arrives on the heels of Tones And I’s performance yesterday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Tones showcased her staggering voice across performances of her breakout global hit Dance Monkey” and “Never Seen The Rain.”  Having recently performed on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The Voice, Tones And I is also slated to perform on The Today Show this coming Monday, February 24th.

Never Seen The Rain” is the latest single from Tones And I’s debut EP, The Kids Are Coming, and follows “Dance Monkey,” which has now surpassed 2 billion streams globally, while ruling the charts in more than 30 countries around the world. The most Shazamed song of all time and the longest running #1 ever on the daily global Spotify chart, “Dance Monkey” currently sits at #5 this week on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, making “Dance Monkey” the first top five Hot 100 hit solely written by a woman in over eight years. In Australia, “Dance Monkey” holds the all-time record for the most weeks spent at #1 on the ARIA singles chart, while in the UK “Dance Monkey” has made Tones And I the longest running  #1 of all time by a female artist on the Official Singles ChartThe New York Times recently detailed the making of “Dance Monkey” in their Diary of a Song video series, speaking with Tones And I about her journey from local busker to global star.

Originally from Australia’s Mornington Peninsula, Tones And I traveled to Byron Bay in early 2018 to take a chance at busking. On the first day she had crowds spilling onto the street. Tones quit her retail job and decided to make Byron her new home where she lived out of her van for a year, honing her songwriting and busking every weekend. Today, “Dance Monkey” has been certified 9x platinum by the ARIA with Tones and I taking home four major wins at this year’s ARIA Awards including: “Breakthrough Artist,” “Best Female Artist,” “Best Pop Release,” and “Best Independent Release.”

Having recently been announced for the Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, and Osheaga, Tones And I recently kicked off her first-ever North American tour. The sold-out run, which continues tonight in Austin, TX, also includes stops in Dallas, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Philadelphia and Toronto, along with two nights in New York City. In the midst of her North American tour, Tones And I will kick off the European leg of “The Kids Are Coming Tour” with a two night stand in London (2/28 & 2/29) followed by shows in Ireland, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria and France [see itinerary below]. For tickets and more information, visit www.tonesandi.com.

Cate Le Bon & Group Listening 'Here It Comes Again' Out Now

After the success of the 2019 Mercury Prize nominated album Reward, Cate Le Bon & the ambient duo Group Listening (Sweet Baboo and Paul Jones) release Here It Comes Again, a reimagining of 5 tracks from Reward.

Recorded in August 2019 in Wales between US and UK tours, Le Bon says,“These are insular re-workings/deconstructions with the musicians whose albums kept me company during the writing of Reward".

Cate Le Bon, Group Listening and guest vocalist Ed Dowie ("Here It Comes Again" and "Magnificent Gestures") weave the now-familiar melodies through a warp of clarinet, piano, recorders and synthesisers exploring a study on minimalism, repetition and restraint.

Best Coast's New Album 'Always Tomorrow' Out Now

Best Coast
New Album Always Tomorrow OUT TODAY

(Photo credit: Eddie Chacon)
“‘Always Tomorrow,’ a powerhouse rock record with a sharp perspective and loads of hooks, is a document of an artist stitched whole again. It’s also the sound of an invigorated band rejecting the idea that the greatest music comes from tortured roots.” - New York Times

“The band’s fourth album...brings a new kind of clarity to their approach. A layer of distortion that once coated the duo’s music has been stripped away to reveal an invigorated rock sound, one that allows Cosentino’s rich vocals to soar.” - Entertainment Weekly

Los Angeles, California’s Best Coast - comprised of Bethany Cosentino (guitar, vocals) and Bobb Bruno (guitar) - have released their first album in five years, Always Tomorrow, TODAY via Concord Records. Always Tomorrow, produced by Carlos de la Garza with additional production by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Paramore, M83), is the band’s first album of new studio material since their acclaimed 2015 record California Nights

“This album is the story of a second chance.” - Bethany Cosentino, Best Coast

Always Tomorrow is the culmination of the last ten years of front person Bethany Cosentino’s life, seeing her stand back from the past decade of the band’s existence and taking stock in where she’s been and who she has become. It’s an album full of intense personal discovery amidst a whirlwind backdrop of global tours, heartbreak, newfound sobriety, dark thoughts, immense joy, giving a fuck, not giving too many fucks, substances, boredom, public personas, and gratitude.  

Says Cosentino, “After we finished the album cycle for California Nights, something terrifying happened to me. I felt creatively paralyzed. I couldn’t write music. There was so much bubbling inside of me, so many things happening, so much to process, but I couldn’t get any of it out. I was miserable and felt like nothing was ever going to change. One day, I locked myself in my closet and I forced myself to write, and out came “Everything Has Changed.” The song was like a vision of life I wished I was living; ultimately, that song was prophetic -- describing the life I would soon be living. Always Tomorrow is the story of where I was and where I am now, as well as the struggles I am still learning to identify and figure out. Some days I wake up and I feel like I’m on top of the world and I forget about everything that’s ever bummed me out, and other days, it all comes flooding back. This album is about leaving the darkness for the light, but still understanding that nothing is ever going to be perfect. It’s about burning it all down and starting from scratch even when the idea of that is fucking terrifying. Closing one chapter and moving onto the next even when you have no idea what is on the other side. Acceptance. It’s about taking a gigantic leap of faith.” 

With sonic nods to the likes of The Go-Go’s, The B-52’s, Fleetwood Mac, The Bangles, Talking Heads, and more, Always Tomorrow is full of the best songs Cosentino has ever written, and a welcome addition to Best Coast’s stellar, much-loved catalogue. From the hazy confessions of the band’s debut album, Crazy About You, to the woozy pop of California Nights, to the guitar sheen of Always Tomorrow, Best Coast continues to be one of the most relatable, important voices in independent music.
