Radio Takes Music City U.S.A. By Storm The New Music Weekly gang took the great city of Nashville by storm for the 2017 Country Radio Seminar (CRS). This event was everything advertised and more and we tried to take advantage of every event it offered. It was also more of a homecoming of sorts meeting up with a good many of our radio stations, music and program directors, artists and many of the movers and shakers in the music industry. While all of this craziness was going on in Music City, it was also time to tabulate the winners for our 2017 New Music Awards. This really added to the list of things we had to deal with so we took it all on and even managed to have a good time in the process. Our first order of business at CRS 2017 was to meet and interview many of the up and coming artists and to talk about their new releases and plans for the year. We started out with the impressive sister duo Presley & Taylor & the lovely and talented Arista Manning all thanks to Music City News Media & Marketing. We spent some quality time with the legendary John Berry who talked about his musical family thanks to Kay Waggoner. Anna Christina Cash, Camille Rae & the entertaining James Dupre came in courtesy of Christy Walker-Watkins while Lucas Hogue, Cathy Whitten and Kim McAbee among others, kept us busy with their stories, many of which we will share with you in future issues. Performances from some of the best in Country music filled CRS 2017. Lady A seemed to be just about everywhere and proved to us once again why they are one of the biggest selling artists in music today. There was a well-deserved award winning moment for Zac Brown and his amazing band. In addition to hearing him speak he and his boys did not disappoint with a stellar live performance which highlighted their current heartfelt single “My Old Man” (Southern Ground/Atlantic). The Ryman lunch showcased some of the very best doing acoustic versions of their songs from a number of Country giants that included Easton Corbin, Darius Rucker to a special treat from Keith Urban and Vince Gil. The Big Machine complete with Scott Borchetta as host put on a very memorable luncheon that not only provided some of the best barbecue we had on this trip to a showcase of some of their best and upcoming artists including American Idol winner Trent Harmon. Another act in particular also showcased some exceptional talent and promise for a very bright future followed. Midland is the name of this amazing vocal act and they really had the place jumping. They performed their debut single “Drinkin’ Problem” (Big Machine/ Universal) which is nothing short of brilliant and we are thrilled to see that their new single is one of our prime movers here at NMW. The New Faces show was still the biggest highlight of the grand CRS event. The Omni Hotel showed us that they can provide an amazing array of fine dining and that helped to settle everybody in. Among performances there were awards given out in between set changes and that seemed to drag the event out just a bit. We found ourselves waiting for the final act Maren Morris who proved why she is the red hot “new kid in town”. The Omni despite the food gets mixed reviews from many of us including a good number of programmers we spoke with. Too many of us miss the Bridge Bar at the other venue and found it very hard to socialize at the drinking hole the hotel provides. This is also our very special winners edition. Once again New Music Weekly honors the very best in recording artists, radio stations, music & program directors, record labels and industry professionals. All of the winners were selected via votes on our website and this year found a record number participating. As we continue our quest to level the playing field there is a good mix of both major label and independent music artists that made their way into the winners circle. Many of them are sharing their thanks in this issue and please pay some extra special attention to them and all of our winners. Our thanks to the wonderful folks from CRS 2017 and a big time congratulations goes out to all of our winners for this year’s New Music Awards.

Shawn Peter Raul Mendes of European Portuguese decent, was born August 8, 1998. Shawn is a Canadian singer and songwriter who has amazing talent and a social media base that is second to none. He attracted a following in 2013, when he began posting song covers on the video sharing application Vine. The following year, he caught the attention of artist managers Andrew Gertler and Island Records A&R Ziggy Chareton, which led to him signing a deal with the record label. Mendes went on to release an EP and his debut studio album Handwritten, whose single “Stitches” reached the top 10 in the US and Canada, and number one in the UK. His sophomore album, Illuminate (2016), was preceded by the single “Treat You Better”. Both albums debuted atop the US Billboard 200. Now Shawn is taking the radio world by storm once again with the fast flying “Mercy” (Island/Republic). It has been a prime mover here at New Music Weekly, Mediabase, Billboard and other leading music charts. We will keep you apprised on the continued story ever building for Shawn Mendes here on the pages of New Music Weekly magazine. This is a very special “Winners & Post CRS” issue where we get the chance to honor the winners for the 2017 New Music Awards. Please take the time to look at some of the heartfelt messages provided from some of our winners. There are also lots of items in this issue regarding the 2017 Country Radio Seminar (CRS). A big congratulations goes out to all of our winners and nominees and we also want to acknowledge many of the artists and groups we spent quality time with at this year’s CRS. We look forward to joining you again next year. 3

Lorde is back at the format with some major firepower. For those that may have thought that she was down and out her new “Green Light” (Lava/Republic) single is set to fix that issue on the spot. Flo Rida has teamed up with new sensation 99 Percent for what appears to be a real masterpiece. “Cake” (Atlantic) is the jam that I’m talking about and it’s getting major raves from our panel of music and program directors. Also making big moves at Top40 is Russ. A simple name with a complex song entitled “Losin Control” (Columbia) might just be the single to pay some very extra special attention to. The new pairing of Linkin Park with Kiiara is pulling in some rather strong dividends. “Heavy” (WB/WEA) is the track that appears to be the talk of the town. The band has been silent for quite a while but that seems to no longer be an issue. Maroon 5 has teamed up with Future and that appears to be pure magic. “Cold” (Interscope) is the single and from the looks of it, this could really be a #1 for the both of them. The team continues again and again and this time it’s Kygo & Selena Gomez. Together they make beautiful music as the new “It Ain’t Me” (Interscope) takes flight. Calvin Harris has joined forces with Frank Ocean & Migos and the results are stellar. “Slide” (Fly Eye/Columbia) is building spins fast and furious so if you’re not on this already what are you waiting for? The new Zedd & Alessia Cara is also a solid winner. “Stay” (Interscope) is such a fine track I just can’t stop listening to it. Make sure you spend a little extra time with this one. Those ever fabulous Chainsmokers keep rolling like a fine tuned music machine. This time out they have joined forces with Coldplay for the gem “Something Just Like This” (Disruptor/Columbia) and this song will not be denied. The big trio pairing of Stargate, P!nk & Sia is another force to be dealt with. “Waterfall” (Interstellar Music/RCA) is the single that continues to pull in calls and requests at a very strong level. If you don’t believe me, just get it in rotation for a few weeks and see what happens. Another powerhouse trio (is this what’s happening now?) finds Jason Derulo adding Nicki Minaj & Ty Dolla $ign to the mix. “Swalla” (Beluga Heights/WB) is the cut and make no mistake about this one, it has legs to go “all the way”. The Catey Shaw is also exploding at Top40 and in a very big way. “Human Contact” (Complex/Lefthook Entertainment) is just about everywhere you turn and that also should be telling us something. Axwell & Ingrosso and the Kid Ink single “I Love You” (DefJam) is also one that should be taken very seriously. Newcomers Lucky Harmon are finding a world of true believers as their “Idolize Me” (Blessings Entertainment) picks up very big numbers. We’ll see how this all plays out in the weeks to come but for now this is a so far so good thing. Newcomer Donnette Tucker is building quite a name for herself. “Hush Puppy Girl” (Ind) is the name of her debut single and this one is on fire. It’s been on our “most added” list for several weeks now and is racing up the charts in record time. Julia Michaels has a good thing going and make no mistake about that. “Issues” (J/Republic) is the magical track I’m talking about and this one is oh so good. Lady Gaga continues to amaze with a slow but steady builder. She just won’t give up (and neither will her label) as the current and ever strong “Million Reasons” (Interscope) pulls ahead of the pack. This is our winners issue and NMA “winner” Chuck Murphy continues to shine as his current “Peace Be With You” (One West) holds strong at #1. NMA winner Renee Zawawi is also on fire as her “Mom” single moves towards the top. Joey Canyon (another NMA Winner) has had a stellar run with “I Can’t Start Loving you Again” (Glo-dot) so a big congrats goes out to him. Dianne Meinke who came a close second is none-the-less killing it out there at radio with her “Secret Lover” single. I’ll have more for you on the greatest hits of Top40 next time right here. A big congrats to all of our NMA winners!

The pairing of Kygo & Selena Gomez has turned out to become something quite special. “It Ain’t Me” (Interscope) is the track that a good number of our music and program directors are embracing. It might be time to give some special attention to this fast breaking hit. Meghan Trainor is back at radio in full force and that’s always a very good thing. “I’m A Lady” (Epic) is the single that already has a strong buzz and with Meghan’s past track record you can expect some very big things ahead for this excellent release. Zedd & Alessia Cara have a good thing going and they want the entire radio world to know it. “Stay” (Interscope) finds the master producer/mixer teaming up with one of today’s hottest vocal talents and the results are splendid. This one might just be the surprise hit of 2017. Katy Perry is back at it and pumped up about her political future. She is taking her new “Chained To The Rhythm” (Capitol) out for a spin and so far she’s getting a pretty good response. She used her performance at this year’s Grammy Awards to springboard the track and it appears that all of that is working out in her favor. Maroon 5 has sought the talents of the great Future to secure yet another smash hit at the format. “Cold” (Interscope) is the new jam that I’m talking about and this one could go all the way. I also really love the new Linkin Park and Kiiara cut. They have teamed up with a single entitled “Heavy” (WB/WEA) and it’s been getting quite a “heavy” response from our panel. Ed Sheeran continues to dazzle radio and that is a good thing to be sure. His new “Shape Of You” (Atlantic) took very little time to reach the top of both the Hot AC and Top40 charts. It seems that everything Ed releases these days is treated with a great amount of respect and he so deserves it all. Lorde is back at Hot AC and radio appears to be embracing her all over again. After taking a bit of a break she is out there killing it with “Green Light” (Lava/Republic). The very brilliant and hustling Chainsmokers have a great machine going these days. This time out they are taking Coldplay along with them for the stellar “Something Just Like This” (Disruptor/Columbia). Watch for some huge weeks ahead on this one as it is already closing out the panel in record time. Imagine Dragons are also back with a new track that is getting some action. “Believer” (Interscope) is the one that a good many of you out there just love. We’ll see how it all plays out in the coming weeks. Donnette Tucker has a good thing going at the format. Her new “Hush Puppy Girl” (Ind) has spent weeks on our “most added” chart. She is now on the move to even bigger and better chart positions. If you don’t believe me just look at the charts in this section. The always fabulous Bruno Mars is back to his old tricks. He’s pulling in huge numbers for his current “That’s What I Like” (Atlantic) release. Also getting much love at radio is recording artist Mark Alan. His new “Road Trip” single is truly a “one to watch”. Lucky Harmon is getting some love from our programmers. “Idolize Me” (Blessings Entertainment) is their debut and so far so very good for this outfit. Newcomer Julia Michaels is totally on fire. Her debut single “Issues” (J/Republic) is as good as it gets for an opening and radio is simply love it big time. Bill Curreri is getting much love at radio for his current offering. “Feather In The Wind” (BCM) is his latest and our panel of music and programmers are all over this one. Dianne Meinke is back with a solid gem. “Secret Lover” has had stellar moves week after week and has #1 written all over it. This is a very special Winners and Post CRS issue. NMA winner Chuck Murphy continues to amaze with his ever powerful “Peace Be With You” (One West). The single is a solid #! on our AC40 and a big congrats to Chuck on an amazing run once again. Renee Zawawi is also an NMA winner. Her latest in “Mom” could reach the top spot at any time. Joey Canyon is also a well deserved NMA winner and he’s had quite the run with his “I Can’t Start Loving You Again” Also in the “winners circle” is Jimmy White. He’s now released the brand new “No Goodbyes” (828) and radio is all over this one in a very big way. Congratulation to all of our NMA Winners and nominees. We are off to an amazing 2017.

With the multi-platinum success of their band Good Charlotte, it’s easy to forget that its founders, twin brothers Joel and Benji Madden, were once small-town boys from Southern Maryland, who could only dream of hitting the big time in the music industry. “We created the band in our bedroom,” Joel says.

“We were sleeping in the same bed wearing winter coats in a house that didn’t have heat talking about what it was going to be like when our band makes it,” - Benji Of course, they did make it. With their 5 full length albums, Good Charlotte have sold over 10 million copies worldwide, attracted an international fanbase, played headlining shows and festivals around the world, and earned a place in history with their radio-ready pop-punk sound captured on such albums as their 3xplatinum breakthrough The Young and the Hopeless. In the process, Joel and Benji have become international stars. In 2011, Joel was invited to appear as a coach on the highly rated Australian version of The Voice, which has just begun airing its new season. This year, Benji joins Joel as a coach on the upcoming season of The Voice Kids. The brothers also own and operate a fully functional recording studio in Hollywood where they write, record, and produce music for other artists. All the Maddens have ever wanted to do is make meaningful music. “We’ve always had the desire to do something timeless that could outlive us, “Benji says. They have already done that. The Young and the Hopeless was a genre-changing album, and they were only 22 when they made it. Turns out, though, it was only just the beginning. Joel and Benji have started a

NMW - MARCH 31, 2017

new band called The Madden Brothers — a moniker whose simplicity reflects their earnest desire to express who they truly are. “Harvey Leeds, the guy who discovered us, used to say, ‘You’re like The Everly Brothers. Why would you be in a band? You should just be The Brothers,’ Benji recalls. “So the idea was to not hide behind a band name or a genre, write some songs, and find someone to record them and help us deliver the truest picture of who we are musically.” When you strip away the live theatrics and fancy production, Benji and Joel are classic pop songwriters at heart, in possession of a killer knack for melody, harmony, and heartfelt story-telling. They showcase these gifts on The Madden Brothers’ debut album, Greetings From California…, which Capitol Records will release this fall. The album is split into two “sides,” the first filled with upbeat, sunny pop-rock produced by their long-time collaborator Eric Valentine, who also produced Good Charlotte’s The Young and the Hopeless and 2004’s The Chronicles of Life and Death. With a cheery vibe and harmonies reminiscent of The Beach Boys and the Phil Spector sound, Side 1 features several hook-happy stand-outs, including the soulful, ’60s-inspired and lyrically unapologetic “We Are Done,” the unabashedly poppy “Dear Jane,” (with lead vocals by Benji, who sings lead of half of the album’s tracks), and the urgent love song “Out of My Mind.” “We knew we needed to work with Eric,” Joel says. “There’s a magic that happens when the three of us get in a room together. He really knows how to pull the best stuff out of us, not to mention he’s an incredible musician and writer himself.” On Side Two, The Maddens’ radiant sibling harmonies are again front and center on songs like “California Rain” and “Brother,” but the music is more earthy, with a warm blend of folk, Southern rock, and ’70s-era FM pop. To get the sound, the guys turned to Grammy Award-winning producer Joe Chiccarelli, known for his work with The White Stripes, The Strokes, The Shins, Boy and Bear, and many others. “We’ve never had a really organic and natural recording, where it was just us kind of naked and not hiding behind walls of guitars and production,” Benji says. “Joe can capture that unvarnished quality and make it sound great. He’s one of the last great classic record-makers.”

Both sides of Greetings From California… reflect The Madden Brothers’ easygoing, West Coast-influenced creative spirit, hence the title, which was also inspired by what they consider a full-circle journey making the record. It began to take shape during a visit to see their friend Pharrell Williams in Miami in early 2012. They had just come off an 18-month tour supporting Good Charlotte’s 2010 album Cardiology and had been talking about doing an album together, just the two of them.

“We went to see Pharrell because he’s someone we really love and respect,” - Joel “Benji brought an acoustic guitar and it felt like a repeat of us leaving home at 18 for California with just an acoustic guitar. Pharrell recognized that we wanted to make classic, California rock and roll and drew comparisons to the Eagles which inspired us even more. We wrote “California Rain” together that night.” The beginning of Side Two, “California Rain” marked a turning point for Benji and Joel. Lyrically, the song tells the story of the brothers’ East Coast to West Coast journey: “Let me take you back before the lights, before the crowd, before we made a sound / All I wanted was to make my mother proud / She told me ‘Son, we’re from the side of town, no one ever makes it out.’” “It’s about the dream,” Benji says. “It’s about the music industry. California is a magical place, and we liken it to the dream.” “We definitely wanted the song to be epic, because California is epic to us,” Joel says. “The song sums up our experience — past, present, and future. We still believe in the dream. We still believe that some kid somewhere can leave home with an acoustic guitar like we did, a backpack, and 40 bucks, and hitchhike down the road and make it to California.” 15

Remember the last time you went to a chain restaurant to celebrate someone’s birthday and the restaurant’s staff substituted a restaurant’s unique hand clapping “happy birthday” song for the traditional song? Did you give any thought as to why they didn’t use the traditional song?

ALL ROADS

Well, consider one further fact: A reported $2,000,000 in licensing fees have been paid annually to Warner Music Group who claims copyright ownership since a 1988 acquisition of several musical holdings which included the well known 120 year old “Happy Birthday to You” song. However, many dispute Warner’s copyright claim, arguing that the song is in “public domain”, available to anyone to use a musician, at some point, the city of withoutIffeeyou’re payment.

Justin Bieber to be notified of charges over graffiti crime Justin Bieber is facing criminal charges on his return to Brazil four years after he illegally spray painted a hotel in Rio de Janeiro. The 23-year-old singer was charged with a ‘crime against the city order and cultural heritage’ after vandalising The Hotel Nacional back in 2013, on his previous visit to the country. However, the case was suspended as Bieber left to continue his Believe tour, leaving officials unable to notify him of the investigation against him. But now he’s set to play in Rio once again on Wednesday night (29Mar17) as part of his Purpose World Tour, the city’s Public Prosecution Service has reportedly confirmed the case will be reopened. “With the news that the singer will be returning to Brazil, the Prosecution Service requested that the court issue a writ of summons in his name,” a statement posted by MailOnline reads. “The request is so that the accused is made aware of the charges.” The outlet added that Rio judge Rudi Lowenkron will send a court clerk to wait for Bieber’s arrival at the international airport, where he will be served a document to sign and confirm his awareness of the situation. If the star refuses to do this, Lowenkron has approved police to use force in getting him to sign the paperwork during his concert at Rio’s Apoteose Square venue. Bieber is thought to be leaving the country after two other shows in Sao Paulo on 1 and 2 April (17), before which he may be questioned further by police and given a sentence by a judge, MailOnline claims. The site which the Baby hitmaker spray painted is a protected heritage site, and as such the crime carries a fine or a year in prison. “The musician does not have permission from the owner of the site to do the paintings,” Antonio Ricardo, of the Rio’s Civil Police, said at the time.

Katy Perry pays tribute to fan

Katy Perry has paid tribute to a superfan who passed away by posting a poignant message and changing her Twitter name. Katie Bell from Benton, Louisiana died in a car accident aged 18 on Saturday (25Mar17) after she lost control of her vehicle and collided with another car, which killed both her and 68year-old driver Roger Erickson, ABC’s partner KTBS reports. The hashtag #ripkatycatKatie quickly spread on social media and on Tuesday morning (28Mar17) the popstar herself shared a video of her late follower on Twitter, which shows Katie joking to her webcam, “I didn’t see you there,” as glasses appear on her face. “We see you angel and we love and will miss you. KC’s, light a candle for Katie. Rest In Peace,” the singer wrote,

changing her account moniker to the tribute hashtag. Other fans of the Chained to the Rhythm hitmaker shared their admiration for the blonde star and praised her kind gesture. One user wrote, “@katyperry I’m sure this means the world to her family! i love you,” while another follower appeared to know Katie as she posted, “@katyperry she was very lighthearted ms. Katie thank you for tweeting this I know she really really appreciates this.” Katie often posted videos of her idol on her Twitter account, and after recently turning 18, she thanked fellow fans who flooded her timeline with birthday messages on 17 March (17). Katy, who boasts nearly 97 million followers on the platform, often responds to her fans’ messages, whether it’s a compliment or a negative comment such as when user @katyshellokitty said she “can’t stand” the 32-year-old anymore.

George Michael painting sells for nearly $600,000 at charity auction

Damien Hirst’s George Michael painting has sold for almost $600,000 (£477,000) at a charity auction in Texas. The British artist created his piece titled Beautiful Beautiful George Michael Love Painting, featuring a black sketch of the late singer on canvas covered in multiple bright colours. When it was put under the hammer at event MTV RE: DEFINE in Dallas, Texas last Friday (24Mar17), which was hosted by Michael’s former partner Kenny Goss, the Mirror Online reports the artwork sold for $580,000 (£461,000). A special video tribute dedicated to the singer, who passed away aged 53 on Christmas Day (25Dec16), was screened during the evening, which also featured a performance from singer Chaka Khan. The whole event raised over $2.7 million (£2.1 million) for HIV and AIDS prevention and awareness, as well as providing money for museum Dallas Contemporary’s arts education and programming. Earlier this month (Mar17) it was confirmed the iconic musician died of heart disease, specifically dilated cardiomyopathy and myocarditis, as well as fatty liver. Michael’s partner Fadi Fawaz, who had been in a relationship with the star at the time of his death, was quick to share that the results meant he could finally “grieve” after rumours he had been under suspicion by the police. And on Tuesday morning (28Mar17) the outspoken hairdresser took to Twitter to post a series of cryptic messages including a link to a page revealing details of Michael’s funeral, claiming it will be a “small private gathering”, to which Fawaz added, “9 days ago,” triggering speculation the Wham! singer has already been buried. This came after he uploaded a snap of a

church with no caption, causing fans to suspect this was the setting of Michael’s funeral. However he then added a caption, stating: “Beaconsfield church. Went for a drive yesterday and loved the town and specially this church.”

Pharrell Williams producing movie musical about his life

Pharrell Williams is developing a big screen musical about his life. The Happy singer is teaming up with Tony Award-winning director Michael Mayer on Atlantis, which will be produced by Pharrell and his partner Mimi Valdes. Martin Hynes will write the script for the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The movie has been described as a musical “Romeo and Juliet-style story inspired by Williams’ childhood in Virginia Beach, Virginia.” It is unclear who will play Pharrell, or when filming will begin. Pharrell has been becoming more involved in film lately and recently produced the Oscar-nominated movie Hidden Figures. When announcing his involvement with the project last year (16), Williams revealed he was thrilled to be a part of the movie because of the historical story it told about three African-American female National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) employees, who helped astronaut John Glenn become the first American to orbit the Earth in 1962. “After my producing partner Mimi Valdes and I heard about this project, we basically begged the producers and studio to allow us to participate,” a statement read. “This is an extraordinary story about black women with genius mathematical minds who contributed to American history. It takes place in Virginia, my home state, and at NASA, a place I’ve been obsessed with since childhood.” He is also the producer of the upcoming Roxanne Shante biopic, Roxanne Roxanne, about the female MC who was popular in the U.S. in the 1980s. The movie stars Chante Adams, Mahershala Ali, and Nia Long. It was screened at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival in January.

Selena Gomez has jetted off to Brazil to join her boyfriend The Weeknd on tour as she prioritises her personal life for the first time in her career. The Come and Get It hitmaker has been romantically linked to The Weeknd since January (17), but the new couple has been forced to spend time apart as the R&B singer is currently on the road. Selena visited her man on tour in Amsterdam, the Netherlands last month (Feb17), and after enjoying a little downtime together in his native Toronto, Canada in mid-March (17), she decided to meet up with The Weeknd in Sao Paulo, Brazil on the South American leg of his tour. The 24-year-old beauty was spotted cheering on her boyfriend from the side of the stage as he played at the Autodromo de Interlagos venue on Sunday (26Mar17), when she shared some video footage of the gig with fans on Instagram. The news of her travels emerged hours before Selena admitted she was enjoying focusing on her personal needs for a change in a pre-recorded interview for U.S. breakfast show Today, which aired on Monday (27Mar17). In the chat, the singer/actress revealed her relaxed work schedule has helped her find happiness in all aspects of her private life, after scrapping her own concert plans last August (16) to seek treatment for a recurring health issue linked to her lupus diagnosis. “I’m actually enjoying finding moments for myself, whether I’m in the studio - and I’ve been in the studio for a week straight and haven’t really said anything about it - I like having a little mystery to where I’m at, and I think that makes me feel very empowered, makes me feel in control of where I’m at,” she shared. “I’m also taking time to have a personal life, so I’m enjoying mixing that (with her career), because I’ve always been, kinda, straight work,” Selena continued. “Now it’s just taking my time.” The Today show interview was designed to highlight Selena’s surprise visit to two schools in Los Angeles last week (ends24Mar17) as part of the inspirational Step Up youth programme, but the female students aren’t the only ones who have benefited from the celebrity meetings. “It reminds me of why I do what I do,” Selena said. “These girls inspire me every day, they give me strength in areas of my life that I didn’t know I needed.”

Sex Pistol Glen Matlock launches Operatic punk album

British institution the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and some of Britain’s finest opera singers have recorded an album of tracks from the angriest and most rebellious songbook – Punk. Forty years after the BBC banned God Save The Queen, ‘The Anarchy Arias’ is the first ever album of classic punk tunes done in a full-blown operatic style and is an idea inspired by Sex Pistol Glen Matlock. The thirteen-track album will be released on 9 June 2017 on Universal Music. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and critically acclaimed opera singers including lead soloist Stephen Gadd, who has sung in some of the world’s most prestigious venues including English National Opera, Royal Opera, Covent Garden, Opera national de Paris and the Glyndebourne festival (more often to be found performing Tosca and Macbeth than Oh Bondage Up Yours!) might be an unusual idea on paper, but whether it be the Sex Pistols’ God Save the Queen, Buzzcocks’ Ever Fallen In Love or the Clash’s London Calling, these dramatically arranged operatic versions make it clear just how much Punk has transcended its scrappy origins to become a national archetype. Punk was designed to be stirring, and the original energy of the music adapts brilliantly to the power of the swelling strings and operatic voices.

In fact, as Glen Matlock explains, it’s not too much of a stretch from the guitar to a thirty piece orchestra: “When you’re playing guitar, you have six strings each playing a different note, allied to a chord. In an orchestra, a string instrument only plays one note at a time, and you have loads of different people, making up those chords. It’s not that dissimilar, you just have more people doing it.’ As one of the main songwriters, arranger and bass player for the founding British punk group, Sex Pistols, Glen Matlock explains his involvement with the project: “About a year and a half ago I got involved with doing Pretty Vacant with a string quartet. I really enjoyed it. The guy behind the Arias heard it, and thought it might be good for all kinds of punk things. So that’s what they did, I then heard some tracks, and I really liked it, I thought some of the orchestrations were fantastic. It was really well done.” In fact, the idea of doing orchestral versions of Sex Pistols songs was first tried out in the 1970’s, with the London Symphony Orchestra’s versions of EMI and God Save The Queen on the ‘The Great Rock’n’roll Swindle’ soundtrack album. And, as Matlock adds, “I’ve always liked that version that Jerzimy did on the Swindle soundtrack of “Anarchy in the UK”, with a French accordion, in waltz time. All those things work, and they’re not necessarily what you think.” “There’s certainly a lot of tongue in cheekiness to it’, Matlock adds. “At the same time I am of an age where you had things like “Deep Purple in Rock”, with a symphony orchestra, or Procol Harum doing “Conquistador” with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, or Frank Zappa with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the Festival Hall. And always in the back of your mind, as a songwriter, you wonder what your stuff would sound like with an orchestra. And it’s a little bit of an accolade to hear it done that way. I think any good song can be played in any idiom.” Like Punk, ‘The Anarchy Arias’ is poised between seriousness and levity, between simple melodies and rousing emotions. To be released around Father’s Day, it converts chaos into choral melodies - and gives another way of hearing these classic pop tunes afresh.

Sublime Teams Up with AleSmith Brewing Company

Sublime has something special brewing for their fans in celebration of the 25th anniversary of their seminal debut album “40oz. to Freedom.” The band, hailing from Long Beach, has enlisted the help of craft beer stalwart AleSmith Brewing Company, operating out of San Diego, to brew this namesake beverage. AleSmith Brewing Co. is brewing a Mexican-style lager on behalf of Sublime. There are plans for national distribution of the beer in 12oz. six-pack cans through AleSmith’s supply channels with an initial small batch of limited edition 40oz. bottles to be made available for sale from the brewery, as reported by Rolling Stone. When asked how the decision to produce a Mexican-style lager came about, AleSmith owner/CEO, Peter Zien replied, “The band members are all big fans of this style of beer. We wanted to create our thirst-quenching version of a traditional Vienna-style lager (famously brewed by the Mexican breweries) that showcases a grainy, maltforward sweetness and easy drinkability. Clean and crisp with subdued hop bitterness to balance, makes Sublime Mexican Lager the go-to beer for hot summer days or pre-concert tailgating.” “From our very first meeting this was obviously a perfect fit,” says Sublime’s manager Dave Kaplan. “Both AleSmith and Sublime are all about staying true to quality and authenticity above all else. Plus, I always could see that classic Sublime ‘Sun’ logo on a beer bottle. We just needed a worldclass beer to go inside and we found it with AleSmith.” NMW - MARCH 31, 2017

The musician says he knows it’s not always easy to do, but it’s something he feels quite strongly about. “I’m not gonna lie. It is more New Music Award winners The Band Perry have officially expensive to make things in America. But it’s important to me. I love America, and I SOLD OUT all dates on their Welcome To My Bad Imagination Popup Show tour. Fans scrambled for tickets to the tour, want to do all I can to create manufacturing jobs at home,” says Kid Rock. and the shows will see The Band Perry performing up close and personal with fans like never before.

“It doesn’t taste like anything else,” says Sublime cofounder Bud Gaugh. “The flavor is great and it has a craft beer flare with a true Mexican lager taste. This is the one!” “Being a beer lover, I’m so proud to partner with an elite world-class brewery like AleSmith and I know Sublime fans will absolutely love it!,” added Troy Holmes, widow of Bradley Nowell. “Like Bradley sang, ‘That 2nd beer was such a turn on.’” As to how the Sublime and AleSmith Brewing Co. partnership was forged, it came down to similar track records and longevity within their respective industries. Since 1988, Sublime has stayed true to their independent, authentic music and lifestyle, resulting in a continually growing fan base with over 17 million albums sold. The band has brought all walks of life together through their revolutionary blend of musical styles. Since 1995, AleSmith Brewing Co. has been dedicated to creating the world’s highest quality beer while promoting an understanding and appreciation of craft beer and its styles and traditions to those they call their customers. The brewery has brought beer fans from around the globe together through their artisanal approach toward brewing and a diverse portfolio of beer styles offered. Sublime Mexican Lager will become a permanent fixture in stores with a June 2017 release to coincide with the official anniversary date of “40oz. to Freedom.” Consumers should expect to see the beer nation-wide throughout AleSmith’s distribution channels. Exact outlets for the limited edition 40oz. bottles have yet to be determined.

Elton John celebrates milestone birthday with star studded party

Elton John celebrated his 70th birthday with a star studded party featuring Lady Gaga, Stevie Wonder, and Katy Perry. The Rocket Man hitmaker’s milestone birthday was on Saturday (25Mar17) and his friends and family put together a party at The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. The get together also helped to raise money for both his AIDS Foundation and the museum and celebrated the 50th anniversary of his songwriting partnership with Bernie Taupin. Katy Perry, Heidi Klum, Dakota Johnson, Matthew Morrison, Ryan Phillippe, Neil Patrick Harris and his husband David Burtka were also attendance, while Gaga and Stevie hit the stage for a performance of Wonder’s 1980 hit Happy Birthday. The 66-year-old sang John’s 1973 song Daniel and Gaga performed her 2011 track Born This Way. Ryan Adams also graced the stage to perform John’s 1972 hit Rocket Man. Elton has always been a fan of celebrating his birthday and he was thrilled he was able to mark his big one this year (17) while still doing what he loves. “I’m interested in moving forward all the time, with what I create, my collaborations, and also with discovering the work of other people,” a statement from John reads. “I think age is immaterial, provided we keep our minds alive by being open to new things. I can be as excited by a new artist who plays me their demo as I am by a new record of one of my musical heroes. I can be excited by playing a new city I’ve never played before, or revisiting somewhere I know well and seeing how it’s changed.” “Life is a constant state of flux for us all, and I like to embrace that,” it continues. “I also feel very happy to use my position to bring attention to injustice in the world, and to try to help where I can. At this time in my life I’m the happiest I have ever been.”

Adele ‘not sure’ if she’ll tour again

Adele is “not sure” if she’ll ever embark on another world tour, insisting it is not something she is “good at.” The Hello singer wrapped the New Zealand leg of her 24

tour on Saturday (25Mar17) and during the show she gushed about the experiences she has had while out on the road, but admitted it has been difficult for her. “Touring isn’t something I’m good at, applause makes me feel a bit vulnerable,” she said to the crowd, according to the New Zealand Herald. “I don’t know if I will ever tour again. The only reason I’ve toured is you. I’m not sure if touring is my bag.

He is the most important thing in her life,” a source told The Sun newspaper. “She has brought him everywhere with her on tour but as he is starting school next year, he won’t be able to join her any more. “Adele doesn’t want to miss a moment of Angelo growing up and it’s an easy decision for her to give up touring for him... Right now she is saying she won’t do another massive world tour like the current one for another 10 years.” According to the publication, Adele would consider returning to live performing if she was offered a Las Vegas residency, like other singer mums Celine Dion, Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez.

Billy Ray Cyrus has brought joy to fans of all ages through an illustrious music career and his various television characters, and yesterday he spent the day celebrating the first anniversary of Seacrest Studios with staff, patients and families at Nashville’s Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. Connie and Gary Seacrest, parents of radio and television talent Ryan Seacrest, were also on hand for the festivities at the state-of-the-art studio. Housed just inside the Children’s Hospital, Seacrest Studios is a partnership between Vanderbilt and the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, which has been building broadcast media centers in pediatric hospitals across the country since 2010. (Billy Ray Cyrus with Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt patient inside Seacrest Studios.) of Fleetwood Mac and as a solo artist producing over 40 chart hits. Stevie loves to listen to up-and-coming artists, and even though she is a big fan of Canadian star The Weeknd, she wishes he would tone down some of raunchier song lyrics. “He’s over-talented,” she told Q magazine. “But if I were to meet him, I would probably say: ‘You say over and over again words that I prefer you didn’t say. I think they’re unnecessary. However, even though I think a lot of your songs are super-dirty, I still really like ‘em! So I’ve given you a pass on that.’” Another major artist the 68-year-old is a big fan of is Adele. And she truly sympathised with the British singer when she halted her emotional tribute to George Michael at the 2017 Grammy Awards, and was forced to start the whole song over from the start. “It’s all about the syllables. I have a song on my 24 Karat Gold album, Mabel Normand, that’s exactly the same,” said the singer. “That’s the reason we’re not doing it onstage. Because if you take a breath, you get off the beat. You’re one word too late, you can never get back on, and you’re dead in the water.” In spite of all her experience and accolades, Stevie admits she still suffers with anxiety before she takes to the stage. But she explains the key to appearing calm and collected is careful preparation. “I’m scared, that’s what I am. I have always been terribly nervous before shows. So I am so rehearsed and ready that I could be dead and stand up there and still sing the right words and do the right thing,” she added.

Trey Songz wants an apology from Nicki Minaj

Trey Songz has blasted Nicki Minaj for including him in her feud with rapper Remy Ma, insisting she didn’t have a hit before they collaborated on his 2010 track Bottoms Up. The Bang Bang hitmaker’s dispute with Remy kicked off last month (Feb17), after the release of her Gucci Mane collaboration Make Love. NMW - MARCH 31, 2017

Vol. 19 Issue 2

Remy, 36, fired back with a seven-minute retaliation track, dubbed shETHER, a play on Nas’ 2001 track Ether, which was aimed at his then-foe Jay Z. Beginning her song with a repetition of “F**k Nicki Minaj”, Remy then dragged her enemy’s ex-boyfriend, Meek Mill, into their feud, claiming he revealed her famous bottom was fake. She also dubbed the Anaconda MC an “A-list groupie” for reportedly sleeping with her Bottoms Up collaborator Trey. Nicki responded to the shots by taking to Instagram to poke fun at the poor sales of Remy’s new album, and she reposted a video clip of Beyonce naming her the “rap queen”. She then hit Twitter to call out Trey for not properly dismissing the rumours of a tryst after he tweeted: “Even when you stay out of the way they will have ya name all in some s**t. Wake up to new comedy everyday.” In response to his post, she wrote: “Wut u (sic) SHOULD be saying is that it’s not true.” On Friday (24Mar17), Songz was asked if Nicki had apologised, and revealed he hadn’t heard from her. “No she hasn’t (apologised), and Nicki I love you..., but let’s keep it real, Nicki ain’t had s**t before Bottoms Up,” he told Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club. “I love you Nicki. I love you. You came at me wrong, you disrespected me, but I love you.” He then insisted he tried to clear up the controversy. “I went out (of) my way to say I didn’t (sleep with you), and I don’t do that...,” he added. “I don’t feel a need to say nothing about a woman to promote my career whether I’ve been with her or not and I don’t feel the need to denounce things when people say they are true. But because this was Nicki and because we do have a history, because I respect her, I went out (of) my way to do that. What (has) that got me?”

With CRS 2017 finally in the books it’s now time to get back to the basics. Zac Brown and his boys put on quite a show at this year’s event, picked up a well deserved award just as their heartfelt “My Old Man” (Southern Ground/Atlantic) takes off. Zac and company could not have had a better launching pad for what could be another banner year for them. Also making a big impression on all of us was the new vocal act Midland. They picked up some big time believers at the Big Machine lunch hosted by the always brilliant Scott Borchetta. Now we see their debut single “Drinkin’ Problem” (Big Machine/Universal) take off and we are just thrilled for them. Old Dominion is back to their old tricks and that means yet another hit single. “No Such Thing As A Broken Heart” (RCA Nashville) is the one that many of our music and program directors are raving about. Brett Eldredge continues his winning ways at Country radio. He’s taking his new “Somethin’ I’m Good At” (WB/WEA) out for a spin and so far so very good. Wayne Warner is also getting a lot of love from our panel. Everyone we talk to is just raving about his new single “Wasted” (B Venturous/MTS). Blake Shelton just keeps the hits coming as his new season of the Voice (NBC) takes charge of the television ratings. “Every Time I Hear That Song” (WB/WEA) is his latest offering and it’s another gem from the master we first interviewed years back at CRS. Luke Combs is also getting plenty of great action at the format. “Hurricane” (Thirty Tigers) is the latest from Luke and this one could go “all the way”. I’m also really loving the latest from Kip Moore. “More Girls Like You” (MCA Nashville) is probably one of the best things he’s done so far. I really hope that radio likes it as much as I do. Kane Brown appears to have a real good thing going. Many of you out there just can’t seem to get enough of the single “What Ifs” (RCA Nashville) and for good reason, it’s one of the best out there. Maren Morris was truly the star of the New Faces show at CRS 2017. She displayed major star quality and even made a solid pitch for her current single “I Could Use A Love Song” (Columbia Nashville) which is yet another gem from this rising superstar. And speaking of superstars, Rascal Flatts are putting their pitch in for their latest and greatest in “Yours If You Want It” (Big Machine/Universal) so I say come on and get some of this. You can’t go wrong with these boys when it comes to music choices. Cole Swindell has teamed up with Dierks Bentley for quite a wild ride. Flatliner” (WB/WEA) is the jam that I’m talking about so come aboard the fast train. Dustin Lynch also has a hit on his hands with “Small Town Boy” (Broken Bow) so please spend a little time with this one. Michael Christopher keeps getting raves for his “DNA” (Ind) and that’s a good thing for him. Chris Loid has paired up with Ed Dailey and together the boys make beautiful music with “If Only They Knew” (Ind). Easton Corbin made his presence felt at CRS 2017. He also put a little plug for “A Girl Like You” (Mercury Nashville) even though he really doesn’t need to. Lady Antebellum were all over CRS and they showed that they really do care about what’s going on out there. “You Look Good” (Capitol Nashville) is their latest and it really sounded “oh so good” live. Florida Georgia Line and the Backstreet Boys are really doing it with God, Your Mama, And Me” (Big Machine/Universal). Richard Lynch has joined forces with Ronnie McDowell for “Love Tattoo” (Twang Thang Country/MTS). The Richard Thomas Band are on fire as their “My Mother’s Love” moves towards the top of our Country Top50. This is our NMA Winners issue and nobody wears it better than Chuck Murphy. He picks up another well-deserved award just as his powerful “Peace Be With You” (One West Music) gets closer to the top. Another NMA winner in Joey Canyon has had a masterful run with “I Can’t Start Loving You Again” (Glo Dot). We’ll see you back here next time and stop by Legends Corner in Nashville this weekend and join me for a song and a beer. Congrats to all of our NMA winners for 2017, you so deserved them.

The promotion was launched in Nashville recently at the CMA Music Festival. “ Carrie Underwood is always looking for ways to connect with her fans,” said Gary Overton, Sony Music Nashville chairman and chief executive officer. “We are excited to embrace a cutting-edge technology like augmented reality to help give fans something special and provide a cool, unique connection between the artist and audience. Sony Music Nashville is excited to watch this fun idea unfold and is eager to partner with Aurasma on other future campaigns.” U pon its release on May 1, “Blown Away” made history by debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country albums sales chart making Underwood only the second country artist in the 47 year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at No. 1. “Blown Away” also debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart making Underwood only the second country artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut at No. 1. “Blown Away” became country’s best-selling digital album debut since 2010. “ Carrie Underwood is a proven superstar. We are thrilled to partner with Sony Music Nashville to help increase the momentum of her smash album Blown Away,” said Jennifer Rapp, general manager of Aurasma. “By leveraging augmented reality to bridge the physical and virtual worlds, Sony gives the fans something exclusive and special, helping to keep fans connected and Carrie in the spotlight.” T he free Aurasma app runs on iPhone 3GS (and above), iPad2 (and above), and high-powered Android devices. Y esterday, Underwood performed the first of four concerts on the Australian leg of her tour to promote “Blown Away.” She kicked things off in Melbourne, and will perform in Tamworth and Brisbane on Friday and Saturday, before finishing things in Sydney on Sunday. Also, Underwood has just released the title cut as the second single -- to follow up the chart-topping success of “Good Girl,” which became her fifteenth number one record.

Country Date To Remember: February 11, 1962 Somewhere, around Fenton, Mo, there are some students who can say that they had one of music’s sexiest performers as a teacher. Sheryl Crow - long before she hit it big in 1993 with “All I Wanna Do,” was actually a music teacher at Kellison Elementary School. Though her teaching days in school are long over, Crow - who turns an amazing 50 years old today has educated many of her fans about some of Country Music’s greatest performers, such as Loretta, Hank, and Johnny Cash. Happy Birthday to one of Rock’s top women! NMW - MARCH 31, 2017

This is our Best Of 2013…so far issue. Throughout this musical visit you will see many Indie artists rising to the top of our charts and a lot of the music perfect for your Summer playlist. You may want to consider being on our Future Hits volume #43. This compilation will get your song to “all of radio” and all tracks will be also serviced digitally through Airplay Access. Contact us this week and make yourself a part of music history. Are you up on These Hearts? Ryan Saunders, vocals, Kyle Colby, guitar/vocals Isaiah Folk, drums, Daryl Van Beek, guitar and Tyler Rice, bass make up this super red hot band. The recent release of the lyric video for “Miserable” has ignited their fans anticipation for their forthcoming sophomore album “Yours To Take” available this month. The new album can be heard live on the band’s headlining album release tour beginning in Joliet, IL. The band’s sound is a combination of honest, refreshing, spirited pitch-perfect harmonies with dynamic and emotive breakdowns. Carrying the torch lit by iconic Victory bands A Day To Remember and Taking Back Sunday, These Hearts has arrived and you read and hear about them first right here at New Music Weekly. The New York based indie rock band Born Cages is set to release their Sidelines EP via Razor & Tie. The band will hit the road this summer as well. Born Cages new EP was produced by Jon Kaplan (Walk The Moon, Augustana) and Oliver Straus (Arctic Monkeys, Matt & Kim) at Mission Sound in Brooklyn, NY. The band is finishing up their debut full length album to be released later this year. The New York City based Born Cages formed in 2011. Within one year the young band had already released an EP, opened two sold-out shows for Guns N’ Roses and shared stages with such bands as Gold Fields, Mother Mother, and Ludo. The band has had music played on Q104.3 in New York and recently recorded a session at the Gibson NYC showroom that premiered on Purevolume. They were also featured on a large billboard in Times Square as part of a Toshiba promotion. Born Cages is Vlad Holiday (lead vocals/ lead guitar), Amanda Carl (keyboards/backing vocals), Steve Kellner (bass guitar/backing vocals) and Dave Tantao (drums). John Tejada has a new exclusive mix for Halocyan Records entitled “Somewhere” via Pitchfork. Have you been following Halocyan Records? This is a global dance brand and record label launched by Dimitri Fergadis, an acclaimed musician and founder of the LA-based experimental electronica label Phthalo Records. Halocyan is dedicated to representing not just the present and future of electronic music, but also its rich history. Halocyan believes that a strong sense of historical roots is an essential launching pad for bold voyages into the unknown. New York City-based retro songstress Joanne Weaver sets out to the Dominican Republic this month to shoot her new music video for “Nature Boy”, the latest single off her debut album Interstellar Songbook which she released in June of last year. The concept album is a collection of Joanne’s unique, psychedelic renditions of eight classic standards from the 40s, 50s and early 60s and is available on iTunes and CD Baby.
