Vol. 18 Issue 3

Each year we try to reach out to the independent artist, band and label as they are really the cornerstone of the music industry. It’s always amazing to see the outpouring of attention this particular issue gets and to be able to acknowledge the work that is done in this arena is very important to all those concerned. In this particular issue all you have to do is look at the music charts to see how many indie artists and bands have found a safe-haven here at New Music Weekly. We applaud their efforts and can only marvel on how hard so many of these artists and bands work to achieve what they have done so far. With the ever changing music industry, it appears that going the independent route might just be the best move out there. The deals that the major labels are now making in order to get their investment back finds them getting their hands on just about everything an artist can possibly make. From publishing interests, to bookings and other elements not generally found in early record deal agreements, the major labels almost want and require so much more and the deals may even include getting your first born. Major labels will use the excuse that they need all of these things from newer artists in order to get their “fair share” of the pie. In many cases it’s more of an issue of greed than anything else. The only way to deal with the major labels is through a position of strength. Artists that go directly to radio to try and prove their case are the ones that find better success and stronger deals. A major label is not going to mess with an artist that is already breaking with a hit single on radio. Ryan Macklemore of Ryan & Lewis proved that case all too well. He held out until the picture was so strong at radio that he could call his own shots and negotiated a deal that was good for both artist and label via his own terms. The position of strength is a very big item when dealing with the major labels. As an artist or band with a vision of what you are all about, the last thing you want is some A&R guy telling you how to write and produce your own music. Some of these executives have personal deals regarding publishing and shares with certain writers and will push extremely hard for new artists and bands to use such material. Their pitch is that young artists and bands have no writing skills and should use provided materials only approved by the A&R person assigned to the project. This can become an artist’s worst nightmare. Many believe that being signed is the answer to their problems when in many cases it might just be the beginning of the end for some. Major labels have only so many artists that they can fit into the “priority” list. Nobody but the executives know the real positon of the pecking order. We know first-hand of artists signed to labels that were actually sabotaged by their own label in order for them to pay special attention to others they deemed far more important. As an independent artist or label you would never do that as you alone are the priority. That is why you must deal with them from that positon of strength so they are put on notice that there will be no opportunity to pull any stunts. Too many young artists think they will be discovered by doing a showcase and end up spending the little money they have to put on such events. There are very few scouts (if any) during this time in the record industry. It is literally impossible to get a meeting with a major label these days and often requires an Act of Congress. What the major labels are doing today is looking at music charts from New Music Weekly to Mediabase and finding artists that are already “on the move” with a single getting radio spins. The stronger the single builds the better chance you have of getting a deal that is more on your terms. You need to be patient and wait your turn if that’s the path you seek. A better alternative is to stay independent and own and control your own product. When the Eagles released their last album they realized that a major would only take funds that should go to the band. With digital downloads being the name of the game, the pie has been made much smaller and it’s getting harder & harder to divide the pieces.

There are no bigger & better Keith Urban fans than our New Music Weekly family. This New Zealand-born Australian country music singer, songwriter, guitarist, musician, judge and record producer is now at the top of his game. In 1991, he released a self-titled debut album and charted four singles in Australia before moving to the United States the following year. He found work as a session guitarist before starting a band known as The Ranch, which recorded one studio album on Capitol Nashville and charted two singles. Still signed to Capitol, Urban made his solo American debut in 1999 with the album Keith Urban. Certified platinum in the US, it produced his first number one on Hot Country Songs with “But for the Grace of God”. “Somebody Like You”, the first single from his second Capitol album, Golden Road (2002), was named by Billboard as the biggest country hit of the 2000s decade. The album’s fourth single, “You’ll Think of Me”, earned him his first Grammy. 2004’s Be Here, his third American album, produced three more number 1 singles and became his highest-selling album, earning 4× Platinum certification. Love, Pain & the Whole Crazy Thing was released in 2006, containing “Once in a Lifetime” as well as his second Grammy song, “Stupid Boy”. Defying Gravity and Get Closer were released on March 31, 2009 and November 16, 2010 respectively. In September 2013, he released a brand new album titled Fuse, which produced four more number ones, two of which are duets with Miranda Lambert and Eric Church. A new single, entitled “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16”, was released in June 2015 as the lead-off single to his eighth American studio album Ripcord. Urban has released a total of nine studio albums, as well as one album with The Ranch. He has charted 37 singles, 18 of which went to number one, counting a duet with Brad Paisley and the 2008 single “You Look Good in My Shirt”, which he previously recorded on Golden Road. Urban has released his newest single this month entitled “Wasted Time” which we are sure will follow suit with his ongoing success. 3

The pairing of Calvin Harris with Rihanna has turned out to be a very good thing. “This Is What You Came For” (Columbia) is their duet that is killing at the format. If you don’t believe me, just ask any of our program and or music directors and they will set you straight. One of the strongest vocalist out there at radio is Andra Day. This San Diego native is really building a solid name for herself and with her current hit single in “Rise Up” (Buskin/WB) she’s guaranteed a spot among the better female recording artists out there. Look for a bright future ahead for this amazing recording artist. Ellie Goulding seems to be pulling hit after hit. She does it again with the release of “Army” (Cherrytree/Interscope). Ellie has a flair for what is going on in today’s pop radio and it appears to be wearing her well. The Goo Goo Dolls are back at radio and that’s always a good thing. Make sure you save some room on your list for their current “So Alive” (WB/WEA) and you will not be disappointed. The band still has a huge following and with their past they can’t be denied on this new one for sure. Recording artist Rachel Platten continues to search for higher ground. She may have gotten there with the release of her latest in “Better Place” (Columbia). The pairing of Nathan Sykes and Ariana Grande is reaping solid dividends. “Over And Over Again” (Global Music/UMG) is a track that you really want to hear over and over again. I guess it sounds like I’m repeating myself but hey, too much coffee is a good thing right? James Bay is turning his “Let It Go” (Republic/Universal) single into a radio anthem. Ever since his electric performance at this year’s Grammy Awards, James has been on a fast track to become the next Elton John. We’ll see how that all plays out for him in the years to come but so far so good for James Bay. Twenty One Pilots have been taking the music industry by storm. Their latest in “Ride” (Fueled By Ramen/ WMG) keeps them on a quest to becoming America’s next favorite band. Pink is back at the format and in a very big way. “Just Like Fire” (Disney) pulled from a new film is breaking records out there. After a little bit of a break this multi-talented artist is back in fine form and ready to take on the radio world once again. The single is a breakout at both the Top40 and the Hot AC format so can you say “crossover”. Rihanna not only has a good thing going with her new best pal Calvin Harris, she also has a solo offering out there in “Kiss It Better” (Roc Nation/Universal). It might be interesting to see if both singles close into the Top 5 to compete with each other. The American Nomads are getting a boost at the format. “Revelation” (Motovun) Is the jam that we are talking about and make sure to throw in a few extra spins for them this week. Leslie Becker is also getting in on the action. Her “Slow Burn” (AP Music) is on the move and make no mistake about that. I’m also happy to report that Eileen Carey keeps pulling in promising numbers for her “Bring On The Big” (Rolley Coaster). Troye Sivan has been a slow and steady mover with “Youth” (Capitol) and it’s really starting to move up now. Lukas Graham has a monster hit in “7 Years” (WB/WEA) that won’ be denied. Zayn has hit first #1 with “Pillowtalk” (Syco/RCA). Meghan Trainor has her biggest single to date with “NO” (Epic). Mirage Box, recent NMA winners, have been on fire with “Secret S m i l e ” ( G r o w l y m a n E n d e a v o r s ) a n d t h e r e ’s m o r e t o c o m e .

Pink is back at the AC40 format and make no mistake about that. One of our favorite female recording artists takes her new single “Just Like Fire” (Disney) out for a spin and all of the radio programmers are going crazy for this track. We’re not too surprised as everything she puts her name on is first rate and this one is exceptional. The pairing of talented Nick Jonas with the ever strange and dangerous Tove Lo appears to be pure magic. “Close” (Safehouse/Island) is the jam that is getting a big thumbs up from our panel of music and program directors. An indication that this one is the one to watch. The Strumbellas have a new good thing going and they want the entire world to know. “Spirits” (Glassnote) is the single that is getting a huge buzz around the music industry. We suggest you give it a few spins and let your audience be the judge and jury on this one. I’m happy to report that all is alive and well with Kelly Clarkson. So much so that her new “Piece By Piece” (RCA/RLG) appears to be putting her back on top where she always belongs. We’ll see oh it all plays out for Kelly on this one in the weeks to come. Haley Reinhart has been making quite the name for herself these days at radio. She pulls out all the stops in “Can’t Help Falling In Love” (Ole) and the results are pretty spectacular. Spend a little time on this one for sure. The American Authors continue to work for you as a the potential favorite new band in the land. “Pride” (Island/UMG) is their latest offering and the callout on this track is huge. There could be bigger things ahead for the boys. The ever fabulous Goo Goo Dolls are back at radio and that is always a welcome sight. This time out their single “So Alive” (WB/WEA) really shows the growth of this band. Might be time to put them back into a heavy rotation. Twenty One Pilots are one of the hottest acts on the planet. After a huge #1 debut, the band releases the track “Ride” (Fueled By Ramen/WMG) to the format and this one could fly as well. It’s always a hard call to bring any follow-up out after such a monster hit so we’ll see how this one fairs in the weeks to come. Regardless, this is just another side of this multi-talented outfit. Disturbed is back with a brilliant track. “The Sound Of Silence” (Reprise/WEA) is really quite something and would well be worth your time and a few listens. John Ratliff has teamed up with his band Receptacle for a solid entry in “Oh My” (Ind). If you want to see just how good this single is being received, just take a look in our AC40 section and view the charts. Erick Blu is also making waves with a solid single. “One Last Dance” (Coreconxept Music) is the jam that’s getting some big time attention at radio. Mr Mister Wilson has a good thing going and make no mistake about that. His debut single “What Will Tomorrow Bring?” (Starchild Outreach) has been getting raves from many of our music and program directors. Some believe he could be the next Luther Vandross. Again just take a look at this week’s charts and they will tell you all you need to know. Slyder Davis is pulling in some rather impressive spins at the format. “Going Out With A Bang” (Ind) is the track to pay very close attention to. Eileen Carey is having quite a run with her “Bring On The Big” (Rolley Coaster) single and we are so happy to see that. Those American Nomads can do no wrong as “Revelation” (Motovun) takes flight. Jimmy White continues to build his music return with the ever brilliant “Michaela” (828) that is the perfect Summer song. Move this one into heavy now. NMA winners Mirage Box have been at #1 for a record number of weeks with their ever brilliant “Secret Smile” (Growlyman Endeavors) and now the Billboard stations are playing it. Chuck Murphy, another NMA winner, is taking his Glenn Frey tribute song “Falling Star” (One West) to higher chart moves. Airy Jeanine continues to amaze with “Do You” (Kmina Entertainment) which is ever so great. Brandy Moss Scott is moving to the top with her heartfelt “Oh How It Hurts” (Heavenly Tunes). Dianne Meinke has it all going her way with “Ten Thousand More” (UVI) & NMA winner Joey Canyon is crossing over big with “White Limousines” (Glo-Dot).

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

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.

IS WARNER/CHAPPELL EXTRACTING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN UNLAWFUL LICENSING FEES?

Defendant Warner claims the 1988 acquisition includes valid copyright ownership, and that due to the 1962 Copyright Act extension, and then the 1998 Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act, its ownership interest does not expire until 2030! Therefore, until the court issues its decision (expected this month or next) the debate continues between two groups of thought as to whether or not the Happy Birthday song still enjoys (or for that matter, ever enjoyed) copyright protection. If the court decides Warner does not have valid copyright interest, it will potentially owe millions of dollars in recently demanded fees. However, the court could uphold the Warner/Chappell copyright claim.... or, decide that it is not appropriate to make a decision without a trial..... to be scheduled in 2016? 2017? So don’t light those birthday candles and sing until you receive the court’s decision. The present issue arose when a Jennifer Nelson, who was making a documentary about the Happy Birthday song, faced a demand by Warner (still claiming copyright ownership) to pay a $1,500 licensing fee if she used the song. Warner’s copyright claimed fees encouraged others to initiate a suit against Warner/Chappell seeking a court decision invalidating any copyright claim to the song, putting the song in public domain. Warner claims the 1935 copyright registration (which changed hands but eventual was part of Warner’s 1988 acquisition of musical holdings) is valid. But the lawsuit claims: “...defendant Warner/Chappell boldly, but wrongfully and unlawfully, insists that it owns the copyright to Happy Birthday to You...and has extracted millions of dollars in unlawful licensing fees...” Warner/Chappell firmly disagrees. In an effort to have the court make an immediate decision in advance of any trial, both sides have asked the court for a Summary Judgment decision (that is that their side has such over-powering proof of its position that the judge can rule in their favor without waiting to conduct a trial). Each side presented their evidence in a court hearing last week.

The plaintiffs claim that copyright protection ended prior to the 1935 registration of the song, emphasizing that simply because a copyright is registered does not necessarily mean the registrant has valid copyright protection.. The plaintiffs argue that the 1935 registration is illusory...and point out that the 1909 copyright law (in effect at that time) required material published prior to 1923 be accompanied by copyright ownership notice. Smoking gun? Plaintiffs recently located 1922 songbook which includes a copy of the Happy Birthday song with no accompanying copyright notice. Therefore the Plaintiffs’ anti-copyright position is that the song’s copyright protection ended prior to Warner’s claimed 1935 copyright.

Selena Gomez Struggles To Trust Selena Gomez has the best time dating, but doesn’t trust anybody. The 23-year-old’s love life has made headlines over the years, with an on/off relationship with Justin Bieber and brief romance with DJ Zedd sparking interest in her. Currently single, Selena admits being quizzed on her relationships isn’t something she enjoys discussing - especially when that’s not what she has set out to do. “I’ve been dating. I’ve been having the best time,” she told America’s Marie Claire magazine. “But I don’t trust anybody, so dating can only be fun if I know I’m going to have fun. “I would try to promote something that I loved, and the entire interview would be about my personal life. I would leave a room feeling defeated, feeling embarrassed, but I would always make sure to put that smile on my face because I wasn’t going to let them get to me.” Rather than let her beau’s define her as a person, Selena is determined to get her hard work recognised. As well as being an accomplished actress the brunette beauty is a successful singer too, boasting three albums with her band Selena Gomez & the Scene as well as two solo records. She’s currently wowing on her Revival tour, named after her second solo album released last year (15), and has finally learnt how to take control of her career without letting others dictate her. “Authenticity is my life,” she explained. “They (agents and managers) make great choices, but I make the decisions. “I had to not be afraid to ask dumb questions, which means I asked a million things about ever single step that I was making.” Now jetting around the globe playing shows, Selena is thrilled to finally be doing something which reflects her as a person rather than being viewed as “just this celebrity person”. Her acting work is continuing to flow too, with roles in movies Bad Neighbours 2 and upcoming flick In Dubious Battle.

Lady Gaga Praises Kesha’s Til It Happens To You cover

Lady Gaga has hailed Kesha’s moving cover of her emotionally-charged sexual abuse song Til It Happens To You. The Tik Tok singer, who has accused producer and former mentor Dr. Luke of emotional and physical abuse, fought back tears as she struggled through a powerful rendition of the Oscar-nominated track at The Humane Society of the United States Los Angeles Gala on Saturday (07May16), when guests included Zendaya, Ian Somerhalder, Nikki Reed, Riley Keough, and Kate Mara. Kesha was joined onstage by Gaga’s song cowriter and event honouree Diane Warren on piano, but she became emotional and had to take several deep breaths

before the music even began playing. “I want to dedicate this song to every man, woman, child (and) animal that has ever been abused,” she said, as she launched into the cover. During the set, photos and video footage of caged animals were displayed on a big screen onstage, and Kesha received a standing ovation from the celebrity crowd as she completed the track, which first featured on the soundtrack to The Hunting Ground, a documentary about sexual assaults on U.S. college campuses. Lady Gaga shared a link to news coverage of her pal’s rendition on Twitter.com on Sunday (08May16) to show her pride at the performance, and went on to heap praise on Kesha. “Killed it @KeshaRose. I could feel your pain,” Gaga tweeted. “Girl these boys won’t be in charge forever. The wisdom of women is rising. Let’s get louder”. Gaga, who has previously opened up about being raped at the start of her career, has been one of Kesha’s loyal supporters since 2014, when she first filed suit against Dr. Luke. The producer, real name Lukasz Gottwald, has vehemently denied all allegations. Meanwhile, Kesha has joined the line-up for dance star Diplo’s Mad Decent Block Party this summer (16). She will perform alongside the likes of AlunaGeorge, Tiesto, Bauuer, and Dillon Francis from 30 July in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The trek concludes on 1 October (16) in Los Angeles.

Courtney Love Hints at Hole Reunion

Courtney Love has hinted at a Hole reunion posting a pic of herself with Patty Schemel and Melissa Auf der Maur and tagging Hole with the photo. Courtney wrote, with the girls, serving up a Hole lot of something. maybe #rocknroll ‪#girlfriends ‪#hole ‪@PattySchemel ‪@xMAdMx, suggesting that something may be in the works for her 90s grunge band. Courtney got ahead of herself when she announced a reunion in 2014 telling Quietus, “I started playing with Patty and Melissa and Eric, just to see how that was.” She then quickly backpedalled. The last official Hole show was on July 11, 2012. Melissa Auf Der Maur doesn’t sound open to anything permanent, especially if it involves new music but she said last month that she would be agreeable to signing off one last time with the band. “I would want to celebrate and play a couple shows. I really would just like to finish what we started. It’s still unresolved to me,” she states.

Sharon Osbourne Dumps Ozzy

TV hostess Sharon Osbourne has reportedly kicked husband Ozzy Osbourne out of their marital home

following cheating claims. The 63-year-old presenter of U.S. talk show The Talk has been married to the 67-yearold Black Sabbath rocker for 34 years, but it appears their decades long union may be in deep trouble at the moment. U.K. newspaper The Sun reports Sharon and Ozzy got into a heated argument with each other after she confronted him with alleged proof he cheated on her with a 45-year-old celebrity hairdresser named Michelle Pugh. The publication claims Sharon went “ballistic” and insisted she had suspected he was having an affair for quite some time. “People are wondering whether Sharon went through Ozzy’s phone before accusing him,” a source said. “She has done that before but in the past she was checking if he’d been using drugs. Ozzy was extremely sheepish and admitted being close to Michelle. “It is likely Sharon has discovered calls and possibly meetings.” It’s alleged Ozzy went missing last week (end29Apr16) after the altercation took place, prompting loved ones to fear he may have taken up alcohol and drugs again following years of struggling to maintain his sobriety. However, it is now claimed he is staying at the Beverly Hills hotel and is doing fine. The couple’s representative Gary Farrow seemed to have confirmed to The Mirror that Ozzy is out of the California mansion he shares with Sharon, noting: “At this time Ozzy is not at the marital home”. The spokesperson did not provide anymore detail about rumours of relationship strife between the couple. However, when the outlet contacted the Meche Salon, hairstylist Michelle’s place of work, to inquire about her whereabouts, a spokesperson confirmed she suddenly requested some time off within the past few days to deal with a “personal emergency”. Sharon and Ozzy have briefly separated before. Back in 2013 Sharon admitted she was considering divorcing Ozzy after he relapsed on drink and drugs.

Talking Heads Squash Reunion Rumours

Chris Frantz and Jerry Harrison say there’s no Talking Heads reunion on the cards. The hopes of Talking Heads fans around the world have been dashed with comments from Chris Frantz and Jerry Harrison saying that there is no reunion in the works. Word broke across the internet yesterday that the four members of the band had reunited and were in the studio recording new music with a tour coming in 2017. The group has not worked together since 1991. The site Blast Echo talked with guitarist Harrison who simply said “the rumor is false” while drummer Chris Frantz added “I wish it were true. It should be happening but David [Byrne] is holding out.”

Recording artist Dru Ross (far right) is putting the finishing touches on his debut EP with assistance from Heather MacLennan & Henry “Scribes” Kleaveland on backing vocals. New Music Weekly co-editor Larry Weir (left) is also the producer for the project being recorded at Studio City Sound.

Reviver Records singer-songwriter Michael Tyler is garnering significant buzz, as a co-writer on Dierks Bentley’s latest hit single “Somewhere on a Beach,” which just topped the New Music Weekly Country chart. The perfect country summertime anthem is the lead single from his eighth studio album, Black, due out on May 27. As Tyler’s first No. 1 songwriting credit, “Somewhere on a Beach” proves that the Reviver Records signee is quickly climbing the ranks of sought-after songwriting talent in Country Music. “Michael is a hugely talented young songwriter,” said Reviver Records President David Ross. “Since signing with Reviver Records, we’ve mentioned time and again that the industry would quickly find out about Michael’s talents as both a writer and musician, and it looks as though it’s already happening!”

New Music Award winning sibling trio The Band Perry’s song “Live Forever” has been chosen as the official song of Team USA at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

For the first time in over two decades, Pink Floyd Records will begin the reintroduction of the Pink Floyd catalog on vinyl. The first four records, to be released on June 3, 2016, include: The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, A Saucerful of Secrets, the soundtrack from the film More and the 2 LP set Ummagumma. Pink Floyd Records will reproduce the vinyl catalog throughout the year with release dates being announced at regular intervals. In the meantime, all Pink Floyd records are now available on CD, digital and most streaming platforms. Special care has been taken to replicate the original packaging. The first set of releases, mastered by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman will be pressed on 180gram vinyl for optimum sound quality. Pink Floyd featuring Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Rick Wright and Nick Mason first broke onto the music scene in 1967, with the hit single Arnold Layne. Despite the departure of Syd Barrett, the group, which now included David Gilmour, recorded some of the most innovative and ground breaking records of the time, culminating in 1973 with one of the biggest selling albums of all time, The Dark Side Of The Moon. There followed numerous global number 1 albums, including The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here, The Final Cut and 2014’s finale, The Endless River. Pink Floyd Records releases will be manufactured and distributed by Warner Music for the UK and Europe and by Sony Music for North America and the rest of the world. Max Lousada, Chairman and CEO Warner Music UK said: “We’re proud to continue to support one of the world’s greatest and most influential bands.

We are excited to work together with the band on their incredible musical legacy.”

Radiohead Release New Taster ‘Daydreaming’

Radiohead have another new song ‘Daydreaming’ released just days after the previous ‘Burn The Witch’. The new song has dropped just as Radiohead released the news that their ninth album will be released on Sunday. The ambient ‘Daydreaming’ comes accompanied with an eerie visual video directed by Paul Thomas Anderson featuring a wandering and greying Thom Yorke strolling through various spaces such as a hospital, a shop, a car park, a forest and a mountain. ‘Daydreaming’ was orchestrated by the band’s Jonny Greenwood.

Snoop Dogg Wants To Come Back As Butterfly

Rapper Snoop Dogg will probably be flying around in the afterlife as a carefree butterfly while others hash it out over his assets. The 44-year-old Gin and Juice hitmaker has amassed an estimated net worth of around $135 million (£94 million) since his first album Doggystyle debuted in 1993, according to website Celebrity Net Worth, but he has no interest in detailing how he wants his estate and business affairs managed after he’s dead and gone. “I don’t give a f**k when I’m dead,” he told Business Insider. “What am I gonna give a f**k about? This goin’ on while I’m gone, you know?” The gangster rap superstar told the outlet he hopes he’ll be fluttering around without a care in the world while his loved ones who outlast him bicker over his assets. “Hopefully, I’m a butterfly,” the rap star shared. “I come back and fly around and look at

all these motherf**kers fighting over my money and s**t, like, ‘Look at all these dumb motherf**kers’. Ha!” Snoop was asked to chime in with his thoughts on his last wishes by the publication in light of pop legend Prince’s death last month (21Apr16). The Purple Rain singer died without a will and testament in place, and now members of his family are battling it out in court for a share of his $300 million (£208 million) estate, which includes royalties, the star’s likeness, unreleased songs and hundreds of other investments he was tied up in before his death. Legal experts are also expecting people insisting they are heirs to Prince’s fortune to come forward, prompting a Minnesota judge to give anyone with a claim on the estate four months to state their case.

Prince Told Pals He Was ‘Doing Fine’

Prince assured his closest friends and associates he was fine days before his death. Worried members of the music icon’s inner circle attempted to get in touch with him following reports suggesting he was so ill after a gig in Atlanta, Georgia a week before he died, the pilot of his private plane had to make an emergency landing in Illinois on the way home. Prince brushed off the concerns and staged an invite-only party at his Paisley Park compound outside Minneapolis, Minnesota the next day - almost a week before his body was found in an elevator there on 21 April (16). Sources told the New York Times that Prince also rode a bicycle in a mall parking lot in the days before his death, while his lawyer, L. Londell McMillan, insists there were no alarm bells to suggest his client was battling medical issues. Prince told the attorney, “I’m doing perfect,” according to the Times. However, according to the publication, Prince told some friends he was feeling depressed, and fans who attended his last gig at Paisley Park have recalled the singer looking frail and gaunt onstage. But it’s clear Prince’s representatives were worried about the star they reached out to California-based addiction specialist Dr. Howard Kornfeld, who flew his son, Andrew, to Minnesota to assist Prince. Andrew was among those who found Prince’s lifeless body in the elevator. “The hope was to get him stabilised in Minnesota and convince him to come to Recovery Without Walls in Mill Valley,” William J. Mauzy, a lawyer for the Kornfeld family, said during a news conference on Wednesday (04May16). “He (Dr. Kornfeld) felt it was a lifesaving mission.” It’s still not clear how Prince died - and autopsy was completed on 22 April (16) and the results are still pending. Meanwhile, famous U.S. addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky is baffled by the fact Prince’s representatives called Dr. Kornfeld for help when the premier treatment centre in the U.S. was a “few miles” from his home. “The Hazelden City Center was within an hour of his house,” he tells Access Hollywood. “They have an outpatient program, which was four miles from his house. The fact that someone didn’t just throw him in a car and take him there is a travesty.”

Delevingne. However when the 26-year-old suggested Selena get the squad together for her own Revival tour, which begins in Las Vegas on Friday (06May16), she didn’t like the idea. “I made a joke about this (getting the squad to join her on tour), Taylor was in the room, and she looked at me like, ‘You should totally do that!’ I was like, ‘I can’t have all those people come on my stage!’ She’s like, ‘Why not?’ ‘Because I’m not Taylor Swift!’” Selena told Entertainment Weekly. Selena explained she’s not keen on bringing her famous friends on stage as she feels it would detract from her credibility as an artist, adding, “I’ve worked for my whole career, and I’ve always wanted it to be about that. “I’ve been in so many situations where it’s like, ‘Oh, you’re friends with this person? You’re with that person?’ All this credibility s**t that drives me crazy. I love being able to work with other artists I admire, but I have a lot to do on my own before I am willing to make it all about embracing other people,” she added. While embarking on her world tour, which will see her travel across North America, Europe, and Asia before finishing with three dates in Mexico in December (16), Selena wants to complete a new album. “I’m in rehearsals during the day and in the studio at night. You hit those points in your life where you’re super inspired,” she smiled.

Sia and Charli XCX Penned Tracks for Blondie Album

Debbie Harry loves the “amazing” song Sia has written for Blondie’s new album. The band are currently working on their new as yet untitled record, the followup to 2014 release Ghosts of Download. And as she spoke to Blondie co-founder Chris Stein on her Beats 1 show The Candy Shop, which broadcasts on Friday night (06May16), singer Charli XCX revealed some long awaited details about the record. As well as the news that she herself has submitted two songs for the album, Charli’s interview uncovered that Sia, Johnny Marr and Strokes’ guitarist Albert Hammond, Jr. have all penned tracks for the record. “Sia and that guy from the Strokes wrote a song that we have on there,” Chris said. “And Johnny Marr, we have a Johnny Marr track that we really like.” But it’s the Sia song that front woman Debbie is most thrilled with. Chris revealed Debbit had labelled the tune “amazing” and said “it lifts right into this chorus”. On top of her own hugely successful music career, Sia has been responsible for writing some of the pop music’s biggest hits in recent years, such as Rihanna’s Diamonds and Beyonce’s Pretty Hurts. Debbie also had another wish for the record, as Chris said she would “love to have Ludacris” feature on the album. But it seems she might have to wait for the group’s next offering because the songs on this one are finished. Chris added to Charli that Debbie just “needs to sing more” as they perfect a few final things before the album’s release. Other names to feature on the record include YouTube stars The Gregory Brothers and What Cheer? Brigade, a street band from Providence. Blondie’s new record is being produced by both Cara Delevingne’s girlfriend St. Vincent and Sigur Ros collaborator and The Paper Chase frontman John Congleton. The release date has yet to be set.

Justin Timberlake Drops New Single

Justin Timberlake has proved he is well and truly back by dropping his new single Can’t Stop The Feeling The pop superstar hasn’t released any music since his 2013 album The 20/20 Experience, choosing to take some time off to enjoy life with his wife Jessica Biel their 12-month-old son Silas. However, Justin delighted fans with a hugely catchy summer track, which features 24

on the soundtrack of upcoming animated movie Trolls, when it hit the Internet at midnight on Friday. He debuted the video for the song too, for which he enlisted the help of some of the stars of Trolls - including Gwen Stefani, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Kunal Nayyar and Ron Funches. Justin also voices a character in the animated film. In the video, the celebrities are seen grooving to the track with Anna and Kunal in particular impressing with their dance moves. Justin is seen wearing a patterned shirt and hat as he joins a group of people in the studio while listening and dancing to the track. Reactions to the song have so far been overwhelmingly positive, with Entourage music supervisor Scott Vener tweeting: “its on some dance MJ (Michael Jackson) meets BILL WITHERS disco and u prob think I’m kidding but I’m not.” This isn’t the first time a tune from the soundtrack of an animated film looks set to be the song of the summer - Pharrell Williams’ 2013 smash hit Happy featured on the soundtrack of Despicable Me 2. In fact, Justin has been working with his frequent collaborator Pharrell once again on some material for his upcoming album. The pair set the Internet alight earlier this year (16) when Justin shared a snap of himself back in a recording studio with Pharrell. Next to a black and white shot of the pair, he simply wrote, “Currently...” Super producer Pharrell, who worked with Justin on hits like Senorita and Like I Love You, offered a little more in an Instagram video, stating, “Here is today’s PSA (public service announcement)”, before turning the camera on his pal, who added, “There’ll be Snapchapping, no Instabamming and no Swittering (sic),” hinting the music making duo is all about business. Justin is also working with group Little Big Town on his new record, suggesting there might be a slight country feel to some of the tracks.

Sinead O’Connor sued by Arsenio Hall for $5 million over Prince accusations

Electronic music producer and DJ STEVE AOKI takes a different turn for the video for his latest single “Can’t Go Home” (Ultra Music)-co-produced by Felix Jaehn and featuring pop sensation Adam Lambert. Making its debut today via Idolator, “Can’t Go Home” is a welcome addition to Aoki’s vast music video arsenal.

It appears Sinead O’Connor’s latest rant could cost her quite a bit of money. Monday, O’Connor returned to Facebook after a month off and made a number of serious accusations against actor and former talk show host Arsenio Hall in reference to the late Prince: Two words for the DEA investigating where prince got his drugs over the decades.... Arsenio Hall (AKA Prince’s and Eddie Murphy’s bitch) Anyone imagining prince was not a long time hard drug user is living in cloud cuckoo land. Arsenio I’ve reported you to the Carver County Sherrif’s office. Expect their call. They are aware you spiked me years ago at Eddie murphy’s house. You best get tidying your man cave. Hall, understandably, didn’t take kindly to the comments and, earlier today, filed a $5 million defamation lawsuit against the singer in a Los Angeles court. As part of the filing, Hall said he had not seen O’Connor in 25 years and that Sinead had said, herself, that she had only met Prince a couple of times. Along with saying that O’Connor is an attention seeker that is “now known perhaps as much for her bizarre, unhinged internet rants as for her music.” The suit also states that “Ever since O’Connor posed her malicious and reckless lies about Hall on her ‘OFFICIAL Facebook page’ (where they have been commented on and forwarded thousands of times), her brazen lies have spread like wildfire across the media throughout the United States and the world...”

Curb artists Niemann and Brice have released a new duet, “A Little More Love,” to iTunes today. Over the groovy, reggae-inspired beat, Niemann and Brice harmoniously encourage listeners to “Make a little more love / Make a little less money / Catch a little more buzz / Off a little less honey,” a sentiment that Niemann felt perfectly represented the laid-back and generous spirit both artists aim to foster with their music and live shows. “Lee and I have always talked about recording some music together,” shares Niemann. “We hope this tune will have our fans smiling and singing along with their windows down and the radio up all summer long!”

Sources tell ET Online the Rhythm Nation singer is expecting a baby with husband Wissam Al Mana, less than two weeks before the singer celebrates her 50th birthday. The news follows Janet’s announcement back in March (16) that she would be cancelling the rest of her Unbreakable World Tour to focus on starting a family. “We’re in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change,” she explained in a video posted on Twitter. “I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour.” Fans were initially stumped by the tour cancellation after Janet completed the North American leg of the trek, but she used the video on 6 April (16) to reassure fans she would be back, but her urge to be a mother was a priority. “Please, if you could try and understand that it’s important that I do this now,” she continued. “I have to rest up, doctor’s orders. But I have not forgotten about you. I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can.” Janet tied the knot with Wissam in secret back in 2012, only confirming the news of their nuptials in 2013. The marriage is the All For You singer’s third - she was previously wed to James DeBarge in 1984, before splitting a year later She wed second husband, Rene Elizondo Jr. in 1991.

50 Cent Donates $100,000 To Autism charity 50 Cent has donated $100,000 (£69,000) to Autism Speaks as part of his apology to an airport janitor he mocked. The rapper poked fun at 19-year-old Andrew Farrell in a social media video on Sunday (01May16), suggesting the teenager was high on drugs when he failed to respond to the In Da Club hitmaker while he was at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. In the now-deleted clip, 50 said, “Look at him. What kind of s**t do you think he took before he got to work today? He high as a motherf**ker right here in the airport. Pupils dilated - the new generation is f**king crazy.” The young man’s stepfather quickly pointed out the teen was autistic and suffered a hearing impairment, prompting 50 to apologise. “It was certainly not my intent to insult him or the disability community (sic), which is a source of great strength in America,” he wrote. “I have apologized personally to him and his family. While the incident at the airport resulted from an unfortunate misunderstanding, I am truly sorry for offending the young man.” Farrell’s family accepted the apology but called on the rap star to donate $10,000 (£6,900) to the Autism Speaks charity. 50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, decided to pay big for his insensitivity, and he has since handed over $100,000, according to TMZ. Making the generous donation, the 40-year-old said, “I am calling on my fellow musicians, actors, entertainers and all others who may not have fully considered this cause to join together to help in any way they can.” The news of his big money cheque emerges as 50 continues to work out his bankruptcy troubles, after declaring himself broke in a Connecticut court last summer (15).

Garbage (Shirley Manson, Steve Marker, Duke Erikson and Butch Vig) have announced the ‘Strange Little Birds’ U.S. tour in support of their forthcoming new album Strange Little Birds. The dates will kick off on July 6th at Summerfest in Milwaukee.

As Luke Bryan embarks on his sell-out summer tour, he joins Jason Derulo, one of pop music’s biggest stars, on stage for a performance that blend their styles and voices for a full-throttled genre-bending musical bang worth of music in “CMT Crossroads: Jason Derulo and Luke Bryan” premiering Saturday, May 21 at 10 pm ET/PT. The hour-long episode features hits from both artists including Derulo’s “Trumpets,” “Talk Dirty To Me,” “Want to Want Me” and his new single “If It Ain’t Love,” along with Bryan’s “That’s My Kinda Night,” “Country Girl,” “Strip it Down” and “Move.”

Demi Lovato Blasts ‘Embarrassing’ Online Trolls DemiARTIST Lovato TW

has blasted online SINGLE trolls targeting her after her Nicki Minaj ‘shade’ post. Demi was photographed at the 2016 Met Gala with rapper Nicki and designer Jeremy Scott who dressed them both in Moschino. When Nicki shared an image of the trio on her Instagram account and failed to tag Demi, the 23-yearold singer posted a different picture from the Gala which showed the Starships singer apparently giving her the evil eye. Demi also posted a selfie to Snapchat and wrote in the caption, “When you aren’t mentioned in a post but didn’t do s**t to the person...” followed by a crying with laughter emoji. Fans on social media interpreted her posts as a blast at Nicki, and despite Demi’s denials she was targeted by negative online commenters which prompted a flurry of tweets from her in response this past Thursday. “Sometimes there’s more to the story?... Sometimes there’s more s**t going on than you see. Maybe you DON’T know every aspect of my life so maybe you shouldn’t assume you know... Maybe I’m tired of sharing my story with the world,” tweeted the singer who has been open with fans about her struggles with an eating disorder and her bipolar diagnosis. “Can’t change being crazy.. But you can press unfollow. Or maybe I rant online because people assume they know things and their entitlement to know makes me feel obligated to defend myself,” she continued. However, she called out the trolls, suggesting their loved ones would be horrified to discover the truth of their online activity. “Imagine the love of ur life/biggest crush finding out u spend time on the internet commenting negative s**t about celebrities.. Embarrassed?”, she questioned. The singer who revealed she found her first Met Gala so awkward that it would probably be her last, wrote in her final tweet before signing off: “?I’d rather annoy people with my honesty and loud opinions than stay silent and be fake as f**k #lasttweetofthenight #goingtosleep?”.

Alicia Keys Releases New Single ‘In Common’

Long-awaited return of New York’s finest, the fifteentime Grammy® Award-winning singer, songwriter and producer, Alicia, who is back with the release of a brand new single ‘In Common’ which is available now across all digital platforms. The single is Alicia’s first release in four years, taken from her forthcoming sixth studio album, due out later this summer on RCA Records. Written by Alicia, Illangelo, Tayla Parks, Billy Walsh and produced by

Illangelo, the longtime Grammy-Award winning producer of The Weeknd, “In Common” is destined to become 2016’s biggest summer jam, seducing us with its infectious baseline LABEL and Latin inspired rhythm, which will ignite airwaves and dancefloors across the globe. Alicia commenting on what inspired In Common states, “We all have our issues, our challenges,” she explains. “We are all kind of messed up and that’s all right. In fact, that’s what helps us understand each other. To me, that’s is what is so beautiful.” Alicia’s upcoming new album reflects her roots in NYC and hip-hop culture while blending her perspective of the raw humanity of the world and who she is today as an activist, woman and artist. Alicia will perform the song for the first time on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” this upcoming Saturday, 7 May. In addition, she will make history with this track on May 28 in Milan, when she will be the first ever musician to open the UEFA Champions League Final - an event watched by hundreds of millions of people around the world.

Lady Gaga Takes Aim at Catholic Website

Lady Gaga has fired back at the writer of a post on a leading Catholic website, who suggested celebrities should not talk about religion while leading a Hollywood lifestyle. The Born This Way singer was raised Catholic and often shares posts on religion on social media, so she took a new article posted on religious website Catholic-Link personally. The writer wrote a blog, entitled From Lady Gaga to Steph Curry: 5 Things to Remember When Celebrities Share Their Faith, and discussed the “trend” for famous people “sharing Bible verses, quoting priests, and singing Christian music”, while “still leading a typical Hollywood lifestyle void of Christian values such as modesty and purity.” The statement struck a chord with Gaga, who offered up a screen shot of the article on Instagram and wrote a thoughtful reply. “Dear, Becky Roach Mary Magdalene washed the feet of Christ and was protected and loved by him. A prostitute,” she began. “Someone society shames as if she and her body are a man’s trash can. He loved her and did not judge. He let her cry over him and dry his feet with the hair of a harlot. “We are not just ‘celebrities’ we are humans and sinners, children, and our lives are not void of values because we struggle. We are as equally forgiven as our neighbor. God is never a trend no matter who the believer.” Catholic-Link was quick to respond to the 30-year-old singer and actress, insisting the article was not aimed at her specifically. The writer of the response went on to call the Poker Face star’s message “authentic” and “beautiful”.

Craig Morgan’s revealing new studio album, aptly titled, A Whole Lot More To Me, is set for release on Black River Entertainment on June 3 but eager fans can pre-order the new music now. The A Whole Lot More To Me album pre-order presents three tiered offerings with additional value for the country music fan.

Duo Dan + Shay (Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney) announced today that they are set to release their brand new album Obsessed, the follow up to their No. 1-peaking album Where It All Began, June 3 on Warner Bros. / Warner Music Nashville. “The idea for the album title, Obsessed, came directly from our fans,” shares Smyers. “Our fans know we live on social media both when we’re in and out of the studio, and we started noticing that hashtag ‘#obsessed’ being tagged in all our fans’ posts when we first revealed our single, ‘From The Ground Up,’” Mooney adds. “So when it came time to pick a title for this album, it seemed pretty appropriate that we’re even more obsessed with making music for our fans than they are to hear it.”

Florida Georgia Line are back at it again with yet another smash. “H.O.L.Y.” (Big Machine/Universal) is the one that’s pulling in big adds and numbers “out of the box”. They have also been hitting some of the morning television shows, a sign that they want this one real bad. The ever fabulous Zac Brown Band are also pulling in some rather impressive and huge numbers for their latest and greatest. “Castaway” (Southern Ground/ Atlantic) is the one that everybody is raving about. If you don’t believe me just ask any of our music and program directors and they will set you straight. Tucker Beathard has a real good thing going at Country radio and you’d better believe it. “Rock On” (Big Machine/Universal) is yet another masterpiece that is no doubt mastermind to the ever so brilliant Scott Borchetta. With Scott at the wheel anything is possible. I’m also happy to report that Sam Hunt is keeping his streak of hits alive. “Make You Miss Me” (MCA Nashville) is the one we’re talking about and this appears to be well on its way to yet another #1 single from the fast rising Sam Hunt. Maddie & Tae are back at it once again. After a little bit of a bump in the road with their last single they are taking the song “Sierra” (Dot) out for a spin. These are two lovely and super talented young ladies and I really hope that radio embraces this single with all the love and attention it deserves. Chris Stapleton appears to be getting plenty of love from radio. His new “Parachute” (Mercury Nashville) track is getting lots of raves from music critics and radio programmers so I’d get on this sooner than later if I were you. Chris is the “real deal” and his future is ever so bright in the world of Country music. Chris Janson is carving out quite a name for himself. “Holdin’Her” (WB/WEA) is his latest and what a great track this is. There is quite a lot of talent going on with Chris and this single should really pull him forward with a little extra radio support. I’m also loving the new and ever cool High Valley. “Make You Mine” (WB/WEA) is a winner from start to finish and this could be a real record to watch for in the coming weeks. Make a little room on your tight list for this gem and you will not be disappointed. The Stickers are getting in on the action and having a good time doing it at that. “Ain’t Nothin’Better” (Woderick Music) is one to give a little extra attention to and your listeners will thank you for it.Also getting good vibes is Mary Fletcher. Her new “I Called Him Dad” (Red & Black Entertainment) appears to be well on its way to much higher ground.Allie Louise is also making tracks as the song “Stilettos” (Sixth Beat) takes flight. The pairing of Jason Pritchett and Billy Dean appears to be working quite nicely. “Already A Dead Man” (BDMG) is the one that has been pulling in some rather impressive adds and spins. It’s an early indicator that something rather special is going on here kids. Donica Knight is all about the love as the single “Love Ain’t A Prize” (MTS) picks up steam. Also making some rather impressive motes is Michael Ray, His new “Think A Little Less” (WEA) could be just what the doctor ordered for taking him all the way one more time. Billy Currington is one of our favorites around here and he does not disappoint as the new “It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To” (Mercury Nashville) starts to break big time. Jake Owen has a good thing going with “American Country Love Song” (RCA Nashville). Newcomer Brooke Eden keeps pulling in the numbers for “Daddy’s Money” (Red Bow/Sony). Kane Brown has a huge buzz going as “Used To Love You Sober” (RCA Nashville) moves forward. Joey Canyon, a two time NMA winner, is moving up with his ever strong “White Limousines” (Glo-Dot). Eileen Carey, also a recent NMAwinner, is finding more support for her “Bring On The Big” (Rolley Coaster) single. Chuck Murphy has a solid run going for “Falling Star” (One West) his tribute to the late Glenn Frey. I’ll have more for you on greatest hits at Country next time here. Until them I will see you in and around Nashville.

C arrie Underwood is no stranger to the word “reality.” After all, as the winner of the 2005 season of “American Idol,” she won the hearts of millions of viewers across the world. Now, the singer has entered into a promotion that is sure to please her fan following. S ony Music Nashville and Aurasma, the world’s leading augmented reality platform, have partnered to launch an augmented reality promotional campaign for Underwood’s No. 1 album, “Blown Away,” which was released in May. U sing the free Aurasma Lite app for iPhones, iPads and Android devices available from the iTunes App Store and Google Play, fans can launch exclusive video of Underwood that is triggered by aiming the device at the cover image of Blown Away. The video leaps from the Blown Away image on the mobile device or tablet and provides a click-through gateway to the album at the iTunes store. 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 - MAY 13, 2016

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.
