FALL MUSIC PREVIEW You have to just love this time of year. The weather starts to cool down and the leaves begin to fall. We’ve gotten through the Summer without too much drama and it is time for a new chapter. For radio programmers it’s also time to clean out some of the Summer jams and start looking for new fresh music to compliment this wonderful season. It is also safe to say that we are getting ever so close to the holiday season and from the look at the stores in the malls, they are already on top of it and ready to sell for that time of year. Looking back musically to the Summer of 2016, it was a bit of a mixed bag with no real Summer songs to speak about. Heavy hitters came to the plate with Britney Spears joining with a rapper for a new single that was for many a bit of a bust. Pink came back this Summer with a song from a Disney feature that did pretty well but it did not come off like much of a Summer song. Justin Timberlake had a red hot single that was already in bloom and it really took off over the past months getting plenty of airplay at both the Top40 & Hot AC arena. Still not much of a Summer song but it did rather well for JT. Country gave Summer a shot of sorts with 21 Summer from the Brothers Orsborne. Although that single was not really a big time #1 it did rather well. Jason Aldean had a late Summer entry and that has sort of stalled a bit. Back over at Pop radio it seemed that Rihanna was out there with everyone from Drake to Calvin Harris. If you include several of her own efforts she was all over radio in the Summer of 2016. Looking back over the past few months it seems that many independent artists and bands took advantage of the lack of Summer music by just trying to fill the radio slots with their own original music and good for them. Many of those singles are still “alive and well” and can be found on many of our Indie charts from Top40, Country to Hot AC. Just take a look at the number of those artists that are still making progress at radio. We really salute all of them for their strong efforts. It might be a smart move to plan ahead for next Summer and come up with an original song that could become next Summer’s music anthem. There are most certainly opportunities as the field is wide open. We are also getting holiday music this early on and that makes sense. A good many music and radio consultants are already looking ahead to this time of year and planning to set their programming schedules. If you are sitting on one of those potential gems than it may be time to dust it off and think about making your move at this early stage of the game. As we’ve mentioned before, holiday music that works for radio gets put in their music library and is brought out every holiday season. It won’t be long before award season is upon us once again. We are already looking closely at the charts here and getting an early idea of artists and bands that should be in consideration for our annual New Music Awards. This time of year gives us a good indication of the songs and acts that faired best in 2016. For our readers please take a close look at the charts in the issue as a good many artists will be in contention for the up and coming award season at numerous trade publications and especially right here. For those of you that are getting ready to release new music or those that already have a single at radio, New Music Weekly is your very best support system. With our weekly charts, tracking and publication, NMW can pretty much help you launch a single and improve your chart standings just by the sheer magnitude of our vast number of radio stations that participate. Many of these stations are totally open to the independent artist or band and are always looking for good new music as the major labels continue to falter and bring us some rather mediocre music. Take advantage of this void and make things happen for yourself. The time is now and New Music Weekly is here to help you every step of the way.

Lady Gaga is back at radio and make no mistake about it. The powerhouse superstar has just released “Perfect Illusion” (Interscope) to rave reviews. The amount of new adds for this one out of the box tell us all we need to know about just how big this single is set to be. Watch for some monster weeks ahead for this fresh new masterpiece. Nick Jonas has teamed up with Ty Dolla $ign for some magic at the format. “Bacon” (Safehouse/ Island) is the jam that we are talking about and radio is all over this one big time. Newcomer Jon Bellion has a good thing going and make no mistake about that. His new “All Time Low” (Capitol) has been the bright spot for new artists and may help him when it comes to Grammy time for new breaking artists. The Meghan Trainor pairing with Yo Gotti has turned out to be really something. “Better” (Epic) shows some strong edge and power that could put this one at the top of the charts in record time. I also really love the new one from DJ Snake and Justin Bieber. These guys have been taking the single “Let Me Love You” (Interscope) out for a spin and every time I hear it the jam sounds amazing. The young and ever so talented Alessia Cara is winning fans at radio in a very big way. “Scars To Your Beautiful” (EP Entertainment/Def Jam/UMG) is an example of pure vocal talent. I recently saw her on a local television show and I must admit that I am very impressed by her demeanor. Those crazy X Ambassadors are back at it and looking for more. “Unsteady” (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope) is the track that is helping to build their stock ever so high in the music industry. They are one of the best bands at radio. Tinie Tempah and Zara Larsson have gotten together and this team may have a winner. “Girl Like” (Parlophone) has fast become a real favorite among our music and program directors and for good reason, it’s excellent. Watch for big weeks ahead for this gem. I’m also happy to report that new indie artist Gina Cutillo is racing at full speed at Top40 and at the AC 40 for her debut “Keep On”. Her original songs are all over commercials and with the event of this fast breaking single, more good things are sure to come. The Color Canvas is another Indie act to pay special attention to. “Love Your Life” (Ind) is such a good track that if you are not on it then what are you waiting for? Autumn Zero is taking the single “Take Me Back” (Winter) out for a spin and for good reason. Give that one special attention. Jimmy White is back with a gem that everyone seems to love. “Miserable Man” (828) is the cut and this one really shows Jimmy’s growth as a recording artist. It’s also killing on the AC40 so he has a solid crossover smash on his hands. Dominic Francesco is getting raves for the single “Tonight’s The Night” (Winter) so you may need to take another look at this one. Russell Watson can do no wrong as the track “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough” moves past the crowded field. Azarelle is taking “Come Alive” (Demo Entertainment Group) to newer heights and why not. Newcomer Dru Ross is having an amazing run at the format. His debut single “Love Simulation” (Ross Records) started here on the charts and pages of New Music Weekly and is now breaking on the Mediabase & Billboard radio charts. Ariana Grande continues winning ways as “Into You” (Republic/Universal) breaks free. Lukas Graham has a follow-up that is better than his first. “Mama Said” (WB/WEA) is really popping and could be his next number one single for sure. Shawn Mendes is on fire once again with “Treat You Better” (Island). Newcomer Renee Zawawi is taking her new “Happy Hour” (PSP) single to the top of the charts and this one is strong indeed. Chuck Murphy has a solid winner with “Cow Girls” (One West) and make no mistake about that. John Ratliff and his band Receptacle are moving to the top with their strong “Oh My” offering. This is our big Spring Music Preview so we wish all of these great artists a solid run during this amazing and cool time of year. I’ll have more for you on the best Top40 songs breaking across the USA next time right here.

Ellie Goulding is fast becoming the new darling of AC40 radio. She keeps her streak at the format alive and well with the addition of “Still Falling For You” (Interscope). Vocally and production wise it’s one of her best to date. Recording artist Lindsey Stirling has teamed up with Andrew McMahon for a bit of musical magic. Together they bring it all in with the new and exciting “Something Wild” (Walt Disney). We wish them the best with this new release and can promise to keep tabs of its success in the coming weeks ahead. Andy Grammer is also a real favorite here at the format. “Fresh Eyes” (S Curve/EMI) is his latest and it’s getting big time praise from many of our music and program directors. One Republic are back with yet another hit. After a bit of a stumble with the last outing they are taking “Kids” (Mosley Music/Interscope) out for a spin to see if this one will do the trick. Wrabel has been pulling in some massive numbers for their latest. “11 Blocks” (Epic) is a breakout hit here and at Top40. Watch for some bigger weeks ahead for this outfit and with a powerful song like this, anything good can happen. Shawn Mendes has been on a real winning role as of late. Right after his monster single “Stiches” (which still gets quite a lot of play at the format) he’s taking his new “Treat You Better” (Island) out for a spin and so-far-so good. I just love this kid and what an amazing talent he is. Bon Jovi is back on track and they want the world to know it. “This House Is Not For Sale” (Island) is the latest from this band that just refuses to go away. When you have such a solid fan base I guess you just need to keep them happy. Third Eye Blind is also back at it and why not. “Company Of Strangers” (MegaCollider) is their latest and greatest. Nickelback is also back at radio and how about a retro return for so many of these artists and bands. “Dirty Laundry” (Union Entertainment) is the track that is getting quite a buzz out there. On a newer front the Chainsmokers who have now teamed up with Halsey are getting big time spins for “Closer” (Columbia). The DJ Snake and Justin Bieber pairing has turned out to be a very good thing. “Let Me Love You” (Interscope) is so good you can’t put it down. Michael Buble is back to sober everybody up. “Nobody But Me” (WB/WEA) is the one he believes will bring back some much needed new airplay. Bastille is also picking up some well-deserved action at radio. “Good Grief” (Capitol) is the jam that is pretty solid and could add to your playlist. Eileen Carey is back at radio and doing quite well again I may add. Her new “In The Air” (Rolley Coaster) is fast becoming everyone’s favorite and her vocal on this one is really quote excellent. Newcomer Gina Cutillo has a good thing going for sure. “Keep On” (Ind) is on fire from here to Top40 and in a very big way. The pairing of Nick Jonas with the ever popular Tove Lo has made for some nice music. “Close” (Safehouse/Island) is the single that is making it all happen. Chemical Diary are finding a world of believers for their debut single. “They Are People Too” is the song that is racing up the charts and in record time. Hot AC (& Top40) world. Those fun loving American Authors are on the move with “What We Live For” (Republic/Island). Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez are making beautiful music together with “We Don’t Talk Anymore” (Atlantic).

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?

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.

Miley Cyrus surprises with Billy Idol duet Miley Cyrus surprised the crowd at the iHeartRadio Music Festival by performing with punk rocker Billy Idol. The 23-year-old pop star joined the British veteran on stage at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Friday (23Sep16) for a special performance of Idol’s 1983 hit Rebel Yell. The 60-year-old impressed the crowd with hits including Dancing with Myself and White Wedding, before bringing out Miley for the surprise duet. “Singing with me... Miley Cyrus! Let’s hear it!” Idol announced to the crowd. “Singing with Billy f**king Idol, let’s do it!” Miley yelled back. The new U.S. The Voice judge was decked out in a special tribute to the rocker, wearing a cropped T-shirt, leather trousers, leather jacket and sunglasses emblazoned with Idol’s name. And Idol, real name William Broad, wore a matching ensemble as the pair belted out his hit. Miley is no stranger to Idol’s back catalogue - she previously performed Rebel Yell back in 2012 for a VH1 Divas show. U2 were the Friday night headliners at the two-day music festival, with Sia and Drake also performing. The Canadian rapper enlisted the help of the crowd to sing Rihanna’s part on their duet Work, before Sean Penn made a surprise appearance to introduce U2 to the stage, Billboard. com reports. The Irish rockers performed a politicallycharged set, with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s image flashing up on the huge screen behind them. “What do you have to lose? Everything,” U2 frontman told the audience in reference to the looming U.S. presidential elections in November (16). Their headline set included hits Beautiful Day, One and Pride (In the Name of Love), before finishing with Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For. The iHeartRadio Music Festival concludes on Saturday (24Sep16), with performances from Sting, Britney Spears and Usher.

The Backstreet Boys are heading to Las Vegas for an 18-date trial residency. The band’s Larger Than Life show will hit The AXIS Theater at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in March (17), and if all goes well, there could be many more gigs to come. Announcing the news on Friday (23Sep16), following months of speculation, Backstreet Boys star Brian Littrell said, “If you’ve ever been to a Backstreet Boys show... it’s going to be that on steroids.” “We’re going to call the show Larger Than Life, and we’re taking that theme and we’re going to run with it,” bandmate Kevin Richardson added. The group

have booked 18 shows at The AXIS between March and 1 July (17), insisting every gig will be a “one-of-a-kind, over-the-top” production. They join Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez, who have enjoyed successful residencies at Planet Hollywood. The bandmates recently checked out Britney’s Piece of Me show at the resort and Richardson admitted he was very impressed. “It seemed really convenient for the family,” he said in April (16). “A Vegas residency, now that we’re all fathers, could be very convenient for us… We won’t have to travel so much.” And new dad Nick Carter can’t wait to thrill fans in Sin City, adding, “We’re excited to bring our experience from being a touring act with all of our hits to Vegas, so that it becomes something that you’ll never forget.”

Man lunges at Justin Bieber at German nightclub

Justin Bieber narrowly avoided a bar brawl at a nightclub in Germany on Friday night (23Sep16) after a male reveller lunged at the singer. The Sorry hitmaker was being escorted through the crowd at the HEART nightclub in Munich when he was attacked. Video footage of the incident, obtained by TMZ.com, shows the pop superstar walking past a brunette barmaid dressed in a traditional German outfit as he tries to leave the club. A man’s arms can then be seen reaching towards Bieber and shoving him. A shocked Justin stops in his tracks as his team, including business partner John Shahidi, take care of the offending man. Newly-single Bieber was promptly escorted out of the club by the Bavarian barmaid after the incident. Justin is currently on the European leg of his Purpose World Tour, and is set to perform in Oslo, Norway, on Saturday (24Sep16). It’s not the first time the 22-year-old has been involved in a fracas - in June (16), he was caught on camera brawling with a man outside his hotel in Ohio following a National Basketball Association (NBA) championship game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the visiting Golden State Warriors. The singer appeared to exchange blows with the guy, before he was thrown to the ground, prompting a woman to intervene and break up the fight. Justin later took to social media to boast about his lack of injuries, insisting there was “not a scratch” on his face. Earlier in the year (16), Bieber was also reportedly forced to leave a 2016 Brit Awards afterparty when a fight broke out between a member of his entourage and another club-goer in London.

UNICEF launches ‘World Version’ of John Lennon’s Imagine

The UNICEF Imagine project, which launched on International Children’s Day 2014, invited people to help re-record the iconic track. The resulting video,

launching today, features a number of UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors and global influencers, alongside people who uploaded their own version via a purpose-built App. Entries were received from every region of the world, including Antarctica and the International Space Station. This world version of Imagine shines a spotlight on the 28 million children around the world who have been driven from their homes due to conflict. The video was previewed to world leaders at the United Nations Summit on Migrants and Refugees in the UN General Hall earlier this week.

Idina Menzel engaged to actor boyfriend

Singer and actress Idina Menzel is engaged. The Frozen star, who was previously married to actor Taye Diggs, announced the big news on Twitter on Friday (23Sep16). “As if this week couldn’t get any better I have wonderful news... my man and I are engaged!” Idina wrote, adding, “We are so happy. It’s a beautiful time.” The lucky guy is actor Aaron Lohr who has been dating Menzel for almost two years. The couple went public with its romance 18 months ago at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, D.C. and in August, 2015, the pair moved in together after buying a house in Encino, California. This will be Lohr’s first marriage. Menzel and Diggs separated in December, 2013, and officially ended their 10-year marriage in January, 2015. They have a seven-year-old son, named Walker. The engagement news comes at a very busy time for Idina - she has signed up to tackle Bette Midler’s role of aspiring singer CC in a TV movie version of the beloved 1988 film Beaches, and she’s currently promoting new album, Idina, which she has described as her most personal project to date. The singer recently revealed she shed a few tears when she first heard one new song, I See You, which she has recorded for the album, because the lyrics were so powerful, and she admits she still struggles to contain her emotions when she sings the tune while thinking about fans who are going through personal hells in their lives. “I realised how profound it is and how many people out there wrestle with insecurities,” Idina explains. “Someone that really looks at you, into your soul, into your eyes, and understands you... I think we all just wanna feel like we have that.”

Ariana Grande’s perfect date night is all about adventure and driving

Ariana Grande is a cheap date - her idea of a romantic night out involves driving and Pokemon sightings. The 23-year-old pop star, who is currently dating rapper Mac Miller, admits she’s very easy to please when it comes to hanging out with a boyfriend. While many might think

she’s all about champagne and the high life, the Side to Side singer reveals her ideal date night is actually quite a laid-back, chilled affair. “(I like) random adventures,” she tells Entertainment Tonight at the launch of her new fragrance Sweet Like Candy. “Going on drives, looking for Pokemon, going to cute movies, making music.” And she also opened up about falling in love with her latest collaborator, Miller, to the outlet, revealing, “Every day is super exciting. Just waking up and being like, ‘Hell yeah!’ Do you know what I mean? It’s great.” She has been reluctant to talk about Miller of late, publicly chastising Los Angeles DJ Ryan Seacrest for quizzing her about her latest romance, but she tells ET she’s coming to terms with the fact fans want to know everything about her. “I can’t really go anywhere (or) do anything now without people seeing and knowing,” she explains. “So, it’s like, I just need to be OK and just be like, ‘Hey, that’s OK. If that’s what comes with me doing what I love and people hearing my music and responding, then that’s OK’.” Meanwhile, the pop star is looking forward to the upcoming live U.S. TV telecast of Hairspray Live! in December (16). She’ll play Penny Pingleton in the musical revamp and admits the role is a “dream come true”. “I’m so excited,” she tells Entertainment Tonight. “I think it’s a really strong message that we need right now. “It’s such a crazy time to be doing that show... with everything that’s going on in the world - the intolerance, the ignorance, the hate and ridiculousness. It’s just so crazy how this takes place in the ‘60s and, like, we’re still working on all that. It’s playful, but also very necessary.”

Pharrell Williams to be a dad again

Big Loud Records breakout star Chris Lane was surprised with a GOLD record plaque for his #1 single “Fix” Saturday night (9/17) in Indianapolis, as he celebrated the final night opening for Rascal Flatts and Kelsea Ballerini on this summer’s RHYTHM & ROOTS tour.

Pharrell Williams is set to become a second-time father. The Happy star’s wife Helen Lasichanh debuted what looked like a baby bump at a Chanel event to celebrate the company’s new fragrance, eight years after the couple welcomed son Rocket Ayer to the world in 2008. A source tells E! the couple has been planning for a second child for “a while”. In 2014, Pharrell opened up about the meaning of his son’s name, revealing he and his wife wanted to give their son a strong name. “In the same way the Indians named their children after a force or animal or element, we named him after a man-made machine that was meant to go up, meant to ascend,” he told U.S. talk show host Oprah Winfrey. “Metaphorically, it was because of, you know, Stevie Wonder’s Rocket Love, Elton John’s Rocket Man and Herbie Hancock’s Rocket. All of my favourite musicians. And his middle name is not Man. It’s Ayer after Roy Ayers.” Pharrell and Helen were together for several years before tying the knot. “It’s awesome,” the Voice coach previously told Savannah Guthrie of his relationship with Lasichanh. “The bestie thing is awesome. Every night is like a sleepover.” However, the relationship didn’t get off to an easy start. “She didn’t answer half of my text messages (at first),” he told Oprah. “Egotistically, no (that didn’t intrigue me). I was like, ‘Oh yeah?’ because I had that kind of money and because I had that kind of reach, I thought I was entitled and I had learned that no, she has a boyfriend and she’s not interested. “I hurt her a lot in the very beginning once she was free and was available, because I had given her all of this attention but I wasn’t ready to, like, let go (of his life as a bachelor),” he added. “I looked at my life and I was like, ‘Man, I could keep doing this for another 10 years. Is that what I want to do?’ And so I made a decision. And then we made a decision and just started dating.” The couple will celebrate its third wedding anniversary next month (Oct16). Representatives for Pharrell have yet to comment on the baby news.

Future files to dismiss Ciara’s defamation allegations Rapper Future has filed documents to dismiss his ex Ciara’s allegations his “defamatory” comments cost her a lucrative endorsement deal. The Goodies singer filed a $15 million (£11.5 million) defamation lawsuit against her former fiance in February (16), accusing him of damaging her reputation by knowingly making false and defamatory statements about her parenting of their son Future Zahir on Twitter. She later added to her legal action, claiming their dispute cost her a $500,000 (£382,000) endorsement contract with an international cosmetics company because he made her out to be “controlling, dishonest, malicious, unreasonable, evil, (and) conniving”. Future has now moved to dismiss this allegation from the lawsuit, filing his own documents in which he claims her whole contract allegation is untrue and he had nothing to do with it falling through, questioning if there was even a deal in the first place, according to TMZ. com. He claims she has no proof of the contract and noted that she hasn’t even revealed the name of the company in the paperwork. After Ciara filed the original defamation lawsuit, Future, real name Nayvadius Cash, filed his own countersuit, but he had a change of heart and dropped it in June (16) and he explained to Rolling Stone he has no ill will against her. “Ciara being successful, her being happy, helps me,” Future said, before addressing the singer directly, adding, “I’m attached to you. If you’re happy, I’m happy. You’re connected for life. I don’t want you to go through this s**t and for it to come back on my son, my kid. I want you to be in the best situation.” However, the R&B star stepped up her legal action by filing more papers claiming she feared for the life of her now-husband American football star Russell Wilson as Future had threatened him. Ciara and Future broke off their engagement in August, 2014, three months after the birth of their son. She wed Russell in July (16).

Emotional Kesha thanks fans for standing by her

Kesha thanked her fans for their ongoing support during her legal battle with Dr. Luke in an emotional speech at her concert on Thursday night (22Sep16). The 29-yearold singer was performing in Brooklyn, New York, as part of her Kesha and the Creepies: The F**k the World Tour, and appeared to be struggling to control her emotions as she referred to the legal drama that has consumed her life for almost two years. “I honestly don’t know if I would have made it the past few years without you guys, some of you may know I’m in a lawsuit,” Kesha told the audience. “Thank you for standing by me.” The Tik Tok hit maker first filed a lawsuit against producer Dr. Luke, real name Lukasz Gottwald, in October 2014, accusing him of sexually, physically, verbally and emotionally abusing her for more than a decade. Gottwald has always vehemently denied the claims and is countersuing the singer for defamation and breach of contract. As part of the case, Kesha requested a preliminary injunction at New York Supreme Court, which would allow her to work on and release new music without Dr. Luke, but this request was denied in February (16). As she continued her speech, Kesha told concertgoers she is hopeful that at some point in the future she will be able to treat them to the new songs she has been working on. “I think that there’s some people that were thinking I’ll just sit around waiting to die. That somebody f***ed with the wrong woman!” she told the crowd. “I could not do this without you so f***ing thank you. I can’t share my new music with you. Keep praying, someday it will come. I can’t wait for that.” Kesha has been performing covers during her tour so far, such as Dolly Parton’s Jolene and Grace’s You Don’t Own Me. But she told fans that while the case against Dr. Luke remains ongoing, she isn’t letting the situation get her down. “No one can own you. Because NMW - SEPTEMBER 30, 2016

Ringo Starr releases song for International Day Of Peace

“Peace and Love”. There has rarely been an appearance by Ringo Starr in the last few decades where he didn’t make his favorite declaration. On Thursday, he took that message to a brand new song, Now The Time Has Come, which was written for the U.S.’s International Day of Peace. While Ringo does appear in the video and sings one verse of the song, he also gives up the lead to three others, Richard Page of Mr. Mister, Colin Hay of Men at Work and Billy Valentine. Singing backup on the recording are social media stars Christian Collins, Maddi Jane, Casey McPherson, James Maslow and Wesley Stromberg. Starr said in a statement “Making this record was incredibly personal for me. Against the backdrop of war or social unrest, I always turned to music as a refuge. I hope this record can offer people solace and inspire them to do all they can to bring peace to their communities.”

Gregg Allman health crisis was pneumonia

Gregg Allman has finally revealed what put him in the hospital and caused him to miss almost two months of dates, pneumonia. When word broke in early August that Allman had been hospitalized with a “serious health issue” and would postpone and cancel all shows through mid-October, many fans feared the worst. Gregg has had a number of different health issues over the years and the lack of information was making them think that something serious had resurfaced. Only a few days later, a reportedly false statement and Facebook post allegedly came from Allman’s children that Gregg was headed home but the information was quickly claimed as faked and the post was deleted, continuing to leave everyone in the dark. Yesterday, Westword out of Denver posted an interview with Allman that finally cleared up the mystery. “Right in the middle of the thing, I got pneumonia. Yeah, that was a drag. I was almost to the end of a tour. I had two more to go, and damn, it just set in. I had to postpone two of the gigs, but we’ll go back and make them up, for sure.” Allman will hit the stage at Red Rocks this coming Sunday for his own Laid Back Festival but he’ll be keeping things a bit sedate as he offers up an acoustic set. Also on the bill are ZZ Top, the Richie Furry Band, Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band, Lucie Silvas, Levon and People’s Blues of Richmond. Gregg will then have a bit more time to recuperate as his next date isn’t until October 29 with the Atlanta edition of the Laid Back Festival followed by a ten-night run at City Winery in New York from November 6 to November 18. Allman will also be the subject of a new photo exhibit, Midnight Rider: The Photography of Patricia O’Driscoll at Morrison Hotel Gallery in New York from November 10 to 27.

There’s no mistaking the fact that Dolly Parton continues to reign as one of America’s favorite entertainers of all time – and the summer of 2016 has only added to that reputation with one of the most successful tours in the music business – and her first chart-topping solo album in a quarter-century. Her Pure & Simple tour – her first extensive concerted touring effort in the United States since 1992, has sold out arena and arena, garnering her rave reviews from the critics for her pared-down approach at telling her musical story. She has just brought the tour north of the border to Canada, as well.

For five decades, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band has remained one of the most iconic names in American roots music. With one foot planted in the traditions of country-folk and the other pointing toward something new and unexpected, the group continues to tour and release music, influencing multiple generations of audiences and artists along the way. Nearly a dozen of those artists join the group on this year’s Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Friends - Circlin’ Back: Celebrating 50 Years concert album, available as a CD or as a CD/DVD combo, due out September 30th on the band’s own NGDB Records, LLC, distributed by Warner Music Nashville.

Music legend Charlie Daniels and Middle Tennessee State University’s lengthy association continue to make amazing strides. With the unveiling of a plaque and a new logo for MTSU’s Charlie and Hazel Daniels Veterans and Military Family Center named for them, MTSU formally recognized the couple and The Journey Home Project he co-founded to assist veterans during a Tuesday (Aug. 23) celebration at the Miller Education Center on Bell Street. Daniels and his wife, who have been married 52 years, were humbled and moved by MTSU’s recognition, which included a presentation of MTSU football jerseys from athletics director Chris Massaro and senior defensive end Steven Rhodes, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran.

Carrie Underwood works her magic once again at the Country format. Her new “Dirty Laundry” (19 Recordings Limited/Arista Nashville) is getting a big thumbs up from radio programmers from coast to coast. Also getting in on new action is Eric Church. His new “Kill A Word” (EMI) appears to be off and running at full speed. You might want to give this one some extra special attention. I’m also happy to report that the lovely and ever so talented Lauren Alaina is doing so well at Country radio. Her “Road Less Traveled” (19 Recordings/Mercury Nashville) is just the track she needed to move ahead of the pack. Lanco is getting in on the action and make no mistake about that. The single “Long Live” Tonight (Arista Nashville) is on fire and it’s getting major raves from our panel of music and program directors. I’m also thrilled to see my good pal Dwight Yoakam back at radio. The long-time leader of the Bakersfield Sound, he’s getting lots of well-deserved love and affection thanks in part to his new and powerful track “These Arms” (Reprise/WEA). David Nail is also pulling in some rather impressive numbers. His latest in “Good At Tonight” (MCA Nashville) is very solid and many of you out there should make this a top priority. Darius Rucker is also back at the format and that is always a very good thing. His latest in “If I Told You” (Capitol Nashville) just reminds us why he’s so important to Country music. Being that he was once the king of pop he has most certainly made the transition quite well. Keith Urban also has another monster track on his hands. “Blue Ain’t Your Color” (Hit Red/Capitol Nashville) is the cut that is getting raves from coast to coast. Also getting much love out there is Eric Martin. Everybody is just raving about the single “Love Is Alive” (Sony) and for good reason, it’s that red hot and more. Maren Morris is getting some amazing attention from Country radio and she deserves every bit of it. Her current “80’s Mercedes” (Columbia Nashville) is really as good as they come and make sure to power this one in the coming weeks. Tim McGraw is also pulling in some powerhouse numbers and that should be of no surprise to anybody that follows this sort of stuff. “How I’ll Always Be” (Big Machine/Universal) is the one that is making beautiful music for him. I’m also happy to report that Thomas Rhett continues his winning ways. “Vacation” (Valory Music/Universal) might be a bit too late for the season but it’s such a good track that it’s hard not to keep in running at full speed. Bryan James has been working hard as of late and it appears to be paying off. “Gotta Get There Before I Know” (Star 1/MTS) is the one you need to spend some time with. Also getting a good buzz out there in radio-land is Shari Rowe. The single “Take That Shot” (Maven Media) picks up more good action and could make some big moves in the coming weeks. I’m also happy to report that Cody Jinks is getting much attention. The cut is called “I’m Not The Devil” (Ind) and it’s quite a well-crafted little ditty. Recording artist Tony Watson is also getting in on the action. “Doing The Best” (Star1) is the one that is starting to appear on many of our radio station playlists so please pay extra attention to it now. Chuck Murphy has a good thing going and make no mistake about that. “Cow Girls” (One West Music) is the one that everybody has been raving about. And if you like this one, just wait until you hear the follow-up. Eileen Carey is also setting the world on fire at radio. Her current “In The Air” (Rolley Coaster) is one of her best to date. John Ratliff and his band Receptacle have a huge crossover smash on their hands. “Oh My” is the one that everybody has been raving about and for good reason, it’s rock solid. Tucker Beathard can do no wrong as his “Rock On” (Big Machine/Universal) moves to the top of the charts. Brett Eldredge is getting much love for her new “Wanna Be That Song” (Atlantic Nashville) and why not. This is our Fall Music Preview so please check out all of the artists and bands that are making chart progress. We believe that many of them deserve that extra attention and we hope to see many of them hitting the top of our charts very soon. Come and see me over at Legends Corner on Broadway and we’ll sing a song together or just have a few beers.

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 - SEPTEMBER 30, 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.
