BIRDY REVEALS NEW TRACK “SECOND HAND NEWS” AHEAD OF LONG-AWAITED ALBUM ‘YOUNG HEART'

BIRDY REVEALS NEW TRACK “SECOND HAND NEWS” AHEAD OF LONG-AWAITED ALBUM ‘YOUNG HEART’ - OUT APRIL 30th 

LAST NIGHT SAW BIRDY HOST HER FIRST SHOW OF THE YOUNG HEART ERA - A ONE-OFF GLOBAL LIVESTREAM FROM WILTON’S MUSIC HALL 

WATCH OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR “SECOND HAND NEWS”

BUY/STREAM “SECOND HAND NEWS”

Today, Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum recording artist Birdy announces new track “Second Hand News” taken from her long-awaited fourth album, Young Heart. Following “Deepest Lonely” - ‘deeper, darker territory…authentically haunting - The Guardian’ - "Second Hand News” is a rousing piano ballad that details drifting apart from a partner based on speculation and conjecture. 

Last night (April 15th), Birdy's one-off global livestream from the majestic Wilton's Music Hall - the oldest Grand Music Hall in the world - attracted ticket buyers from more than 70 countries. Shot by acclaimed director Ed Coleman and produced by Driift, the show featured a full band and eight-piece string section, with Birdy performing songs from throughout her career as well as previewing several from the new album. Images can be found HERE.

Young Heart’ is quite the departure from Birdy’s previous album, 2015’s dramatic ‘Beautiful Lies.’ Where Beautiful Lies was a fairy tale, Young Heart is a gritty realist portrait of the artist in pain, looking for the light. The songs on the album tussle between light and dark, between that vastness of space and the interior of home. The conflict between wanting to hide away and being compelled to go away, to new places and new experiences play out across the record.  

Album opener “Voyager” is a beautifully written song about the knowledge and pain that you need to end a relationship, but the no-man’s land where your partner doesn’t know yet. From there, the record speaks of the fallout – the loneliness, the pain of missing the person one still loves, the acceptance of grief being central to love and loss, longing for travel but the pull of the familiarity of home.

LAURA MVULA SHARES VIDEO FOR "CHURCH GIRL"

SHARES VIDEO FOR ‘CHURCH GIRL’

WATCH HERE

Image

 NEW ALBUM ‘PINK NOISE’ OUT JULY 2ND

PRE-ORDER HERE
 

“A glorious immersion in 80s pop" - The Guardian 

“She’s back, with her dancing shoes on” - The Sunday Times Culture

“We honestly didn't deserve Laura Mvula - talented, frank, and wise…” - CLASH 

“Loud, ambitious and uplifting” - The Independent 

“Buoyant, dreamlike...lush swathes of synths and drums that leap like shooting stars”  -gal-dem 

“When it comes to music, I want to be able to be all that I am without hiding, without fighting with myself.  We’re already in what feels like some kind of global claustrophobia – we’re locked in and we need to come out and we need to break out. That’s what this music is to me and I just want to share it. I want people to feel free.” - Laura Mvula 2021

Laura Mvula has shared the stunning visuals for her latest single ‘Church Girl’ today, taken from her highly anticipated new album ‘Pink Noise’, due for release on July 2nd via Atlantic Records. Watch here (INSERT LINK) and pre-order the album here

The vibrant video for ‘Church Girl’ is steeped in a beautiful retro futuristic aesthetic that Laura is heralding for this new era. Devil-horn clad dancers sensually follow her every move - echoing the refrain ‘How can you dance with the devil on your back?’.

Speaking about ‘Church Girl’ Laura said “I am not my story. For so long I identified as the things that happen in my life, the things I do, good or bad. I’m letting go of this mind-made ‘me’. I’m coming home to myself beyond the realm of form. I am not the thoughts in my head, or the things I achieve, or the shape of my haircut. I no longer ‘dance with the devil’ on my back. I’m basking in the light of knowing my true self, the deeper ‘I’.”

‘Church Girl’ is taken from Laura’s forthcoming highly anticipated third album ‘Pink Noise’, which explores a side of Laura previously uncharted. With appearances already on Later With Jools Holland and The Graham Norton Show, alongside esteemed praise, the new album  is showing that Laura is well and truly back and triumphant as ever.

‘Pink Noise’ is a battle cry and stark reminder of the sheer talent of the critically acclaimed artist - this is Laura in a new found light, still reflecting her distinctive signature sound whilst showing the progression of an artist who has come into her own.

“This is the album I always wanted to make. Every corner is made warm with sunset tones of the 80s. I was born in 1986. I came out of the womb wearing shoulder pads. I absorbed the dynamism of the 80s aesthetic right from my first moments on this planet. Wrestling with identity seems to be one of the rites of passage of the established artist. Making ‘Pink Noise’ felt like the most violent of emotional wrestling matches. It took 3 years of waiting and waiting and fighting and dying and nothingness and then finally an explosion of sound. As if it was always here this record is my most honest and unapologetic flying of the freedom flag. In my adult years I had forgotten how important dance was to me as a vital tool of my creative expression. I brought it back, just for me, so I could find my delight in dance again. And now I can’t stop dancing. I can’t wait to play this album live.”

Contrasting confessional lyricism with compelling and infectious synth pop, ‘Pink Noise’ feels completely and uniquely Laura.  Her artistic prowess knows no limits - take the neo-soul meets art pop of ‘Remedy’ for example, or the darker, pulsating ‘Conditional’ that injects bombastic funk into indietronica. She feels rejuvenated too, especially on electro pop stunners ‘Magical’ and ‘Before The Dawn’. This is Laura Mvula at her most ambitious to date, leaving no stone left unturned in this cosmic new realm.

As one of the most exciting musical talents to come out of the UK, Laura has previously won an Ivor Novello Award for Best Album, has been nominated for the Mercury Prize (not once but twice), BBC Sound Poll, the BRITs Critics Choice Award, two BRIT Awards in 2014 (British Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act) and won an incredible two MOBO’s in 2013 (Best Female and Best R&B/Soul).

Having caught the attention of her musical hero Prince while performing for the first of two times on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury, Laura has gone on to travel the world, selling out shows and captivating crowds at every destination. Crowned “Queen of the Prom” and given a five star review from the Evening Standard for her Proms 2014 Late Night performance at the Royal Albert Hall, Laura’s critically acclaimed career has led her to work with real-life inspirations Nile Rodgers and touring with David Byrne.

  1. Safe Passage
  2. Conditional
  3. Church Girl
  4. Remedy
  5. Magical
  6. Pink Noise

  8. What Matters

DODIE SHARES NEW SINGLE & VIDEO; DEBUT ALBUM OUT MAY 7


DEBUT ALBUM BUILD A PROBLEM OUT MAY 7


“The themes of dodie's music are undeniably somber yet poignant, striking an emotional balance that create a vein of hope running through the whole album.” - POPSUGAR

“She’s built considerable momentum.” EARMILK

dodie is among a new breed of young musicians who’ve already conquered the internet by the time they’ve begun work on their debut album.” FLOOD MAGAZINE



dodie today shares her searing new single “I Kissed Someone (It Wasn’t You),” the latest track to be lifted from her forthcoming debut album Build A Problem which is now due for release 7 May via her label doddleoddle. The new single follows “Hate Myself”, which premiered as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World and was playlisted at Radio 1. “‘I Kissed Someone (It Wasn’t You)’ is set in the aftermath of a newly-single person’s messy night out,” explains dodie. “It’s the feeling of trying to patch over a broken, lonely heart by indulging in a revenge fantasy of promiscuity - sadly only resulting in feeling lost, lonelier and shameful. I wrote the song to take place in a drunken, dark mindset - teetering on the edge of sinking deep into the bad thoughts that alcohol can amplify, before snapping back in the verses to a slightly more grounded, but still sad, place.”

By her own admission, dodie may be a work in progress; problems have been built, mistakes have been made, but with Build A Problem, she’s proven that she is an artist for the ages. “I Kissed Someone (It Wasn’t You)” is available to stream and download now; Build A Problem is available to pre-order in CD, vinyl, deluxe CD, deluxe vinyl and cassette formats, and released 7 May via doddleoddle. Catch dodie, May 5 for a live acoustic session and Q&A with Willa Bennett at Rough Trade in NYC.

“I wanted ‘“The Riddle" to express itself in different ways. I had the feeling this song had many facets that I couldn’t convey, so I asked musicians I admire to appropriate the track and give their own vision of it. Each one of them unveils their own understanding of "The Riddle" through this remix EP”. – Silly Boy Blue

ALLISON RUSSELL Shares New Single "Persephone"

 ALLISON RUSSELL RELEASES NEW TRACK “PERSEPHONE”
LISTEN/WATCH HERE

DEBUT SOLO ALBUM OUTSIDE CHILD OUT MAY 21ST ON FANTASY
Cover photo by Marc Baptiste

"Singing a blend of elegant torch songs, ancestral ballads (in French and English), gentle country shuffles, and Al-Green inspired R&B, Russell embarks on a fresh musical beginning by dealing directly with her traumatic upbringing...Despite its heavy inspirations, ‘Outside Child’ is anything but despairing or academic." - Rolling Stone

"The lyrics to ‘Nightflyer’ are mostly a list, a poetic and far-reaching one: ‘I’m the moon’s dark side, I’m the solar flare/the child of the earth, the child of the air/I am the mother of the evening star/I am the love that conquers all.’ Allison Russell sings them over a stately blend of country and church as she summons a congregation of her own vocal harmonies, gathering strength as she promises reassurance." - The New York Times on “Nightflyer”

"Triumph glistens along poetic lyric lines as Russell uncovers unforeseen strength. Understanding this deeply rooted resilience derives from generations of strife, the artist beams with pride knowing the same strength will continue to build for her daughter and generations to come." - American Songwriter

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - April 16th, 2021 - On May 21st, Allison Russell will release her first ever solo project, the highly anticipated Outside Child (produced by Dan Knobler) on Fantasy Records. Today, she shares a gorgeous new track “Persephone” from the forthcoming debut.

LISTEN/WATCH “PERSEPHONE” HERE
PRE-ORDER OUTSIDE CHILD HERE 

Allison Russell on “Persephone”:
“Persephone” is an homage to my first love - she helped me through my early days of being a teenage runaway and taught me that people can be kind... It’s about the healing joy of experiencing a consensual sexual awakening after a decade of abuse - and about the transformative rebirth that is possible when we begin to love and be loved with mutual care, respect and honesty.” 

The poet, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, activist and co-founder of Our Native Daughters and Birds of Chicago, unpacks her youth in searing detail throughout Outside Child. “Persephone'' follows “Nightflyer,” the album’s first single, which she shared last month.
Born and raised in Montreal, Russell imbues her music with the colors of her city - the light, the landscape, the language - but also the trauma that she suffered there. It is a heartbreaking reflection on a childhood no one should have to endure, and at the same time a powerful and warm statement of hope - asserted from a place of healing, of motherhood, of partnership - and from a new home made in Nashville. The record features contributions from many of the artistic family members she has found there including producer Dan Knobler, Erin Rae, Jamie Dick, Joe Pisapia, The McCrary Sisters, Ruth Moody, Yola, and her partner JT Nero.

“It was just about making these songs live and breathe in the most honest way,” Russell says. “We were laughing, we were crying. And the communion between musicians, I hope people can hear that on the record. It felt like magic.”

“Outside Child, Russell added, “is about resilience, survival, transcendence, the redemptive power of art, community, connection, and chosen family.” The album is both a radical reclamation of a traumatic childhood and lost home, and a lantern light for survivors of all stripes - a fervent reminder of the resuscitative power of art. “Allison’s new album, Outside Child, draws water from the dark well of a violent past,” says poet and songwriter Joe Henry.” “The songs themselves ––though iron-hard in their concerns–– are exultant: exercising haunted dream-like clean bedsheets snapped and hung out into broad daylight, and with the romantic poet’s lust for living and audacity of endurance.”
