FALL MUSIC PREVIEW

It’s hard to believe that we are now down to the final quarter of the year. Just as the hottest Summer on record comes to a close it’s time for the Fall season and we could not be happier for this time of year. Many of the singles that hit hard over the summer are coming to a close and that is opening up some room for newer releases. If you haven’t had the time to strike with your artist or label just yet now might be the best time to get something into play. We can already see more releases hitting the street and that could mean good things for the entire music industry. This is also the time when people need to be thinking about the holiday season that is just around the corner. Being that it’s the biggest music selling time of the year and only just month’s away. Those that plan right now will have the upper hand. It’s also time to change the tempo just a bit. If you have been sitting on a great ballad, this might be the time to get that out there as programmers are looking to change things up a bit and some in more dramatic fashion. The A- list artists are hitting it extra hard as they know the big sales time is coming fast and furious. Taylor Swift and her Big Machine have “Wildest Dreams” just in time for that final quarter and it has the sonic sounds of fall written all over it. Others taking full advantage of that push can be found in Maroon 5, Demi Lovato and Drake just to name a few. Over on the Country side of things there is a lot going on as artists from Brad Paisley and his new “Country Nation”, Rascall Flatts with “I Like The Sound Of That” to Sam hunt and his new “Break Up In A Small Town” just to name a few are really hitting it extra hard for that final push. There is plenty of amazing independent music as well. The east coast act Abuss is getting raves for their new “Poor Days”, while young indie artist Nicole Sheehan has just released her “Stuck At 17 to early raves from our music and program directors. The indie movement is also alive and well when it comes to the Country format. Many abound including the likes of Chad Pfeifer and Morgan Riley and a host of others taking full advantage of this final quarter. Whether you’re a major fighting for a slot at your label or an independent, there are many opportunities that should be taken advantage of right now. It’s also not too early to be thinking about your song for the holidays. We have always noted that a good single for this time of year can help to break a new artist. For bands and artists that are already out and about, a good holiday song can add plenty of stock to your musical portfolio. Whether it’s your take on a standard or a unique original, it might be time to get into the studio and make some magic just in time for Christmas. Don’t wait too long on this because stations are already looking for such tracks. Another event that you should prepare for is the music award season. New Music Weekly is looking very carefully on the music here in the last quarter for our annual New Music Awards. It will not be long before we will be putting our nominations list together and much of that is based on what is going on right now. Artists and band from both the major and the independent arena will be singled out as this year’s very best and if you believe you fit into that category, it might be time to start campaigning just a bit. New Music Weekly continues to offer the very best “tools of the trade” when it comes to breaking new artists. Whether it’s through our unique tracking system or in print and via our digital delivery systems, NMW has all you need to get your story out to the radio programmers that matter the most. Please get in touch with us soon as this year comes to a close so that we can help serve you the very best we can. The opportunities abound here at New Music Weekly and our panel of music and program directors are only too happy to help you provided you deliver your very best music. No need to worry about that big major record deal to get your story started. Please enjoy this Fall Music Preview and all it has to offer.

Sam Smith, one of our favorite artists here at New Music Weekly, was born Samuel Frederick Smith on May 19th 1992 in England. He has become one of the top male recording artists over the past few years. Sam is also a pretty amazing songwriter as well. He rose to fame in October 2012 when he was featured on Disclosure’s breakthrough single “Latch”, which peaked at number eleven on the UK Singles Chart. His subsequent feature—on Naughty Boy’s “La La La” earned him his first number one single in May 2013. In December 2013, He was nominated for the 2014 BRIT Critics’ Choice Award and the BBC’s Sound of 2014 poll both of which he won. Sam released his debut studio album, In the Lonely Hour, in May 2014 on Capitol Records. The lead single, “Lay Me Down”, was released prior to “La La La”. The second single, “Money on My Mind”, became his second number one single in the UK. The album’s third single, “Stay with Me”, was an international success, reaching number one in the UK and number two on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, while the fourth single “I’m Not the Only One” reached the top five in both countries. The fifth single, “Like I Can”, reached number nine in the UK. In December 2014, Smith was nominated for six Grammy Awards, and at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards in February 2015 he won four: Best New Artist, “Stay with Me” for Record of the Year and Song of the Year, and In the Lonely Hour for Best Pop Vocal Album. At the 2015 Brit Awards, he won the awards for British Breakthrough Act and Global Success. Look for Sam Smith to be all over the new James Bond film coming to a theatre nearest you very soon. He has the lead title and there is a major buzz about his participation. In the meanwhile – please enjoy our very special Fall Music Preview. 3

Ellie Goulding continues are magical ways at the format. Many of our music and programmers are raving about her new “On My Mind” (Cherrytree/Interscope) single and for good reason, it’s one of her best to date. Trey Songz is back at it and this time he’s taking his new jam to even further heights. “About You” (Songbook/Atlantic) is the cut that we are talking about and this one really deserves your immediate attention. The pairing of Fetty Wap and Monty has been looking like a solid winner. “My Way” (300 Entertainment) is the cut single has been moving by leaps and bounds. Watch for some bigger weeks ahead for this monster duet as the spins and adds continue to rock the music world. Nick Jonas is back with another excellent single. “Levels” (Safehouse/ Island) is his latest and who would have guessed that this guy would have rebounded to the solo career that he has today. Congratulations Nick and keep those mega hits going strong. Alessia Cara has a good thing and make no mistake about that. Her new “Here” (EP Entertainment/DefJam/Universal) is fast becoming everyone’s favorite and this one has #1 written all over it. Andy Grammer is not only on Dancing With The Stars, he also has another hit on his hands. “Good To Be Alive” (S Curve/EMI) is his latest and with his new following of television watchers that could help more this to the top of the charts. Selena Gomez has not only found a new record label and manager, she also has completely revitalized her career. “Same Old Love” (Interscope) is her latest and radio is really loving what she is doing now so good move Selena. Jess Glynne is finding more love at radio thanks to a new cut. “Hold My Hand” (Atlantic) is the latest and this one is so good that you just can’t put it down. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are taking the format by storm once again. Their “Downtown” (WB) single is the talk of the town and for good reason. This is one monster jam that has solid #1 potential. Nicky Jam is getting raves for the work done on a brand new track. “El Perdon” (Sony Music Latin) is the one that might be worth a few spins around the block. Also make sure you spend some time with Drake. His new “Hotline Bling” (Cash Money/Young Money/Universal) is probably one of the best tracks to come along for him in quite some time. This is one talented recording artist who seems to have his hand on pulse. .Maroon 5 is back at it with yet another monster hit. “Feelings” (222/Interscope) is their latest and this one is just a shade better than their last so good things can only happen from here. Major Lazer has teamed up with Ellie Goulding & Tarrus Riley for a real solid track. “Powerful” (Interscope) is just that and a bag of chips so I’d put this on the music burner right away. Taylor Swift would have never imagined all the things going on yet she tells it all in her “Wildest Dreams” (Big Machine/Universal). It’s only a matter of a few weeks before this becomes her next #1 single so “top that”. Recording artist Chuck Murphy has a good thing going at the format. His debut single “How Many Times” (One West Music) is picking up some rather impressive action and our reporters are loving this one big time. Chris Cox is also on fire at Top4o as his new “Honky Tonk Hellcat” (CMM) takes flight. Tom MacLear continues to amaze with “Unapproachable” (Meg Records). Royalush is on fire with their stellar “Shot For America”. ABUSS is set to explode with “Poor Days” (Daybreak Records) so watch for some big weeks ahead for this gem. Recording artist Dru Ross is on the studio putting his debut CD together. With songs like “Love Stimulation” and “Lookin’ For A Winna” you can expect some big things ahead for this bright young artist. Our NMW insiders got an early listen and they tell us that Dru could be the “next big thing” so be on the lookout for music coming from Dru Ross very soon. We are thrilled about this Fall Music Preview issue and you will find some great new songs hitting the charts and making big waves. It won’t be long before Holiday music will come into play so get set and ready to make that move sooner than later. I’ll have more for you on the biggest hits in the USA next time right here.

Taylor Swift continues her radio dominance with one hit after hit. She continues her record breaking streak with “Wildest Dreams” (Big Machine/Universal). The single is on fire at Hot AC and Top40 and it should not take too long for this one to hit the top of the charts. It’s a little different vocal spin for Taylor that works well nonetheless. The Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor pairing continues to work magic at the format. Little by little their duet “Marvin Gaye” (Atlantic) is becoming a radio anthem. The proof of that is just trying to get the song out of your head. Fall Out Boy have a good thing and make no mistake about it. Their “Uma Thurman” (Island/UMG) is like a slow simmer that keeps building and tastes better and better the longer it’s out. Watch for some even bigger things ahead for this gem in the weeks to come. The X Ambassadors are taking the radio world by storm and in a very big way. “Renegades” (Interscope) is the track that our music and program directors are raving about. The single is also making its way into television commercials and movie trailers, a sign that a monster hit is in the works. Paul McCartney is back and that’s always a good thing for radio at any time of the year. His new and active “I’ll Give You A Ring” (Hear Music/UMG) is the new Paul at his best and we should really embrace more music from him while he’s still delivering great music. Another artist that always delivers excellent music is Don Henley. His new “That Old Flame” (Capitol) is a gem that deserves your immediate attention. Florence & The Machine are back and delivering the goods. “Ship To Wreck” (Universal/UMG) is their latest offering and it showcases why this girl and her band are the very best at what they do. Are you ready for ABUSS? Their debut single “Poor Days” (Daybreak) is one of the best singles we’ve heard in quite some time. It has been on the “most added” charts for several weeks now and continues to build like a major hit single. Many of our music and program directors are also raving about it and that tells us all we need to know. The act known as Sweet Spirit is also making waves at the format. “Break You Bones” (Ind) is the jam that is getting lots of attention so you may want to give that track a spin around the block. Anthony Russo has a good thing and make no mistake about it. “Cheatta” is the single many are spinning and it’s not a bad one at that. Justine Dorsey continues to amaze with the debut single “Cliche’” (Unison Music Group). What a super young talent and deserving of all the spins you can handle out there in radio-land. Chris Cox has a good thing going and keep your eyes and ears open for his amazing “Honky Tonk Hellcat” (CMM). The single started at Country and is fast moving across formats. That’s what we call a super cross-over hit and watch for some even bigger weeks to come at al formats. Eileen Carey is rocking multi-formats with a brand new single “Faith” (RolleyCstr Music). This one is making magic from Hot AC to Country so give it some immediate attention. Chuck Murphy has a flash-fire hit at radio and make no mistake about it. His debut single “How Many Times” from One West Records is on fire at the format and this track is also moving across formats in a very big way. Look for a very bright future and even better things to come from the amazing Chuck Murphy. Nick Fradiani is making the most of his American Idol win with “Beautiful Life” (19/Big Machine). Brandy Moss Scott continues are #1 ways with her record setting “Bye, Bye, Baby” (Heavenly Tunes). I’ll have more for you next time right here.

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.

Iggy Azalea: New album called Digital Distortion Iggy Azalea”s new album will be called “Digital Distortion”. The “Fancy” rapper has revealed she”s well on her way to completing her new album and has announced the title of the record, which she said fans can expect to hear next year. In a Q&A on Twitter, she told one user: “digital distortion is not a song title, its the name of my album. (sic)” But new music from the 25-year-old star isn”t far off as she teased she will be dropping the first single from the LP at some point in the next few weeks. Asked when she”d be releasing the lead track, she said: “this month. (sic)” However, Iggy – who released her debut “The New Classic” last year – admitted she hasn”t finished the collection, which she hopes to release “next year,” and is planning to “ask people soon” to collaborate with her. After a fan complimented her on a selfie, she wrote: “thankyou! im going to go and play my album to someone from def jam and i wanted to look nice. (sic)” But asked if she”d finished the collection, she commented: “no im still working on a few things. (sic)” During the surprise Q&A she also revealed she wrote a verse for a Selena Gomez track called “Girl Crush”, but the song was eventually shelved. She said: “i did a song for her a while ago but she didnt release it, it was called girl crush. shes great. “i didnt write it for her, just a verse. but it was very different to the current stuff so it may not have fit her new music :-) (sic).”

Robbie calls for new Kylie duet

Robbie Williams wants to duet with Kylie Minogue again. The “Angels” singer collaborated with the “Can”t Get You Out Of My Head” hitmaker on “Kids” in 2000 and has revealed he”d love to team up with her again on a new song he”s written for his next album. He said: “The Kylie duet might not come off and that would be very embarrassing now that I”ve said too much already. “Maybe I used up that token of the duet thing. I”ve got this great tune that”s incredibly camp and I would love her to sing on it with me. Maybe she will, maybe she won”t, watch this space.” Robbie also expressed an interest in working with “Grace of Monaco actress Nicole Kidman again following their duet on his album “Swing When You”re Winning”, “Something Stupid” in 2001. Meanwhile, the 41-year-old star opened up about embracing fashion and keeping in shape when it comes to performing on stage. He told News.com.au: “I am taking a leaf out of Elton John and Rod Stewart”s book. “In the past I thought, “Who do I think I am by wearing that?” but now I have my big boy pants on

so they might as well be Versace and Louboutins.” Speaking about his decision to give up sugar, red meat, pasta and bread, he added: “I am professional, I”ve got to do this s**t and I”m a “pop star”, so for me to go out there and not feel ashamed, then I have to look a certain way. “And I”m a bit of a dancer, I move on stage and I need to be lithe. Or at least more lithe than I have been.”

Adam Lambert reveals video teaser

Adam Lambert has unveiled the video teaser to his new single ‘Another Lonely Night’. The Luke Gilford directed video will be out this Friday. ‘Another Lonely Night’ is the second single taken from Adam’s third studio album ‘The Original High’ that reached the New Music Weekly Top40 Charts. Lady Gaga: I feared my fiancé’s opinionLady Gaga was absolutely terrified about taking on a role in American Horror Story: Hotel because she feared the job would upset her fiancé Taylor Kinney. The 29-year-old Applause singer portrays Elizabeth/The Countess in the fifth season of the hit TV series. Her future husband Taylor is also an actor, starring in films like Zero Dark Thirty and television show Chicago Fire. And when Gaga was offered a part in American Horror Story, the superstar was afraid he would feel she was encroaching on his professional territory. “What guy in that scenario would be like, ‘Sure, babe, do TV!”?” she told E! News. “He does TV, that”s his thing. I do music, and you know, we”re together. But I sort of was like, ‘Is it cool if I do TV?,” And he was like, ‘F**k yeah!”” To Gaga’s surprise Taylor has been “exponentially supportive the entire time and just like, so cool”. He has even provided the star with a bevy of incredibly acting advice. “[He was like], ‘We can read scripts together, and we can talk about our characters together, and I can teach you how to be on set!”” she noted. “And he taught me all about etiquette and what actors would appreciate during their coverage. He taught me to make sure that I was always available fully to the actors when I was working so that when the coverage is on them that I don”t drop my character, that I”m always in it for them, and you know, that”s invaluable advice.” American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy is so impressed with Gaga’s performance on the show, he has invited her to star in the sixth season. She would love to consider taking on an acting career in addition to making music. “I think I”d like to do like one great acting project a year,” Gaga said. “I think one a year would be great. You know, I”d really like to do a film now. I”m ready to do a film. But it”s about the right people, the right project. I want to take some time to write something…I want to make a great piece. It”s just

so not important to just be in acting and music and be that person that does both things. Just having that on my roster is not important to me. I really genuinely love it and I love writing songs, so the future for me is very good.”

Selena Gomez: My bark is instinctual

Selena Gomez believes her creativity is an instinctual process meant to capture the “bark inside” of herself. The 23-year-old singer-and-actress is currently promoting her new album Revival. And the process of penning tunes for the LP meant her inner fierceness was tapped into in a huge way. “It’s instinctual. You need to have that bark inside of you,” she explained to Latina magazine. “I poured everything into this album mentally. I wanted to create something that was authentically me.” While working on Revival, Selena matured exponentially. The star had to drop one habit in particular she thought would never go away. “The habit of being so mean to myself,” she explained. “I was my own worst critic. There’s so much pressure to be a certain way. I had to stop and stand back and say, ‘Is this good for me?’ It’s about awareness; now I allow myself to take care of myself. For me, being strong is being completely confident in who you are. I spent the last year getting to know myself, and I realised the most important relationship you have is the one with yourself. “‘Everything happens for a reason.’ That’s true of auditions, friendships, and relationships. I’ve had yeses, and I’ve had nos. Good things and bad things. I always try to reflect afterward and not be anxious about why something didn’t work.” Although she is one of the most famous people in the world, Selena has stopped trying to be perfect in front of the camera. The multitalented entertainer is doing her best to ensure other people know she is also flawed. “I’m a real person,” Selena said. “I have bad days too. I can take good selfies, but they might be after I spent two hours in a hair-and-makeup chair. You don’t have to be perfect; there’s beauty in flaws.”

Stevie Wonder’s ‘divorce finalised’

Stevie Wonder”s divorce from fashion designer Kai Millard has reportedly been finalised after several years of processing in court. The 65-year-old musician first married Kai in 2001, but the pair separated in 2009.

Madonna launched her highly anticipated Rebel Heart Tour with a sold-out show at the Bell Centre in Montreal tonight. Diplo opened the show. The set list spanned all decades of the iconic superstar’s illustrious career, including songs from her current album Rebel Heart (the No. 1 Dance hits “Living for Love” and “Bitch I’m Madonna,” to classic fan favorites like “Material Girl” and “Holiday” and a “Dress You Up” medley that included “Get Into The Groove,” “Everybody,” and “Lucky Star.” Fan-created artwork was featured in a video montage shown during Madonna’s performance of the song “Rebel Heart,” and her rendition of “La Vie En Rose” played on just a ukulele received and overwhelming standing ovation from the audience.

will share joint custody of the boys with Kai and the You Are the Sunshine of My Life singer will also pay $25,000 per month in child support. But TMZ reports the agreement stipulates Stevie can only take the boys on tour with him “on a limited basis”. Stevie signed off on the papers with his thumbprint instead of a signature. While the terms of his divorce with Kai were being fleshed out, Stevie was busy moving on romantically speaking with new girlfriend Tomeeka Robyn Bracy. Stevie now shares two young children with Tomeeka and he is father to nine kids total. The legendary musician revealed Tomeeka was expecting during an interview on US daytime talk show The View in November (14). While speaking on the programme the star joked about the amount of offspring he has produced over the years. “I got, how many, 22 kids? It”s not true,” he laughed. Stevie won a staggering 22 Grammys during his long career and he is known the world over thanks to his iconic songs, such as Happy Birthday and Isn”t She Lovely. He has spoken before about how being blind impacts his songwriting process. “I am consumed by music... I can see music,” he told the UK version of GQ magazine. “Each instrument has its own colour. It”s like a puzzle and when I fit all the pieces together, that”s my high. “I”m not a normal man - never have been. The more I accept that, the better I feel. I”m a work in progress.”

McCartney unveils new video for his Jackson hit Say Say Say

Revealing official details on Good Morning America, GRAMMY award-winning singer/songwriter Charles Kelley sends “The Driver” to Country radio today as the debut single from his forthcoming solo project on Capitol Records Nashville. Written by Kelley, Eric Paslay and Abe Stoklasa and born in a ratty studio in the back of producer Paul Worley’s offices, Kelley explores new territory with a raw sound that pushes his vocals into a lower, grittier key than what listeners have been hearing from him in a group setting. His unmatched perspective of hours spent on the road pursuing a life-long dream is present through his impeccable voice, along with special guests Dierks Bentley and Paslay. 22

Paul McCartney has unveiled a brand new video for his 1983 smash hit single with Michael Jackson - “Say Say Say”, directed by Ryan Heffington who recently directed and choreographed the video for Sia”s “Chandelier”. Watch it exclusively on Paul”s Facebook . “Say Say Say” has also had a new remix by Mark “Spike” Stent (Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Lady Gaga), where Paul and Michael”s vocals have been alternated for the first time. Paul remembers: “He (Michael) rang me up, and I didn’t believe it was him, so I said “who’s this?” He said ‘Michael’. ‘Are you sure… Michael who?!’. Anyway, we had a joke about that kind of thing, and he said, ‘yeah, I’d like to come over and write with you’, so I said great. So he came over to England and we just sat down. I thought, well, it’s not easy to just sit

down with anyone you don’t know and just write, start songwriting because you’ve got to get the chemistry right. But I thought, it is Michael - you know, I”ll just try! If it doesn’t work, we”ll just throw it away …”

Missy Elliott sued for not promoting shows

Rapper Missy Elliott has reportedly been hit with a lawsuit for allegedly failing to promote two concerts in Brazil, leading to poor ticket sales. The Work It star was booked to play gigs in Rio de Janeiro and Porto Alegre in November 2012 and reportedly agreed to promote the shows in a scheduled appearance on Brazilian TV network Rede Globo. However, in legal documents obtained by TMZ, concert booker Jean Faustin claims Elliott failed to show up for the TV promos, which he alleges subsequently led to poor ticket sales. As a result, both concerts were cancelled. In his lawsuit, Faustin says he paid Elliott a £46,875 deposit for the concerts, and he is seeking reimbursement for the advance, plus interest. Elliott, 44, has had a busy 2015, playing the Essence Music Festival in Louisiana, US, Bestival on the Isle of Wight, UK, and the Pemberton Music Festival in British Colombia, Canada. She also performed alongside Katy Perry at this year”s (15) Super Bowl. “I thank Katy “cause she could have picked any artist. It was big for her. Most artists would be like, ‘Let me get somebody on the top of the charts just to make my joint just go even higher,”” Missy said at the time. “We did a record together, and I thought I was going to come out on the record we did. She said, ‘I want you to do your records.’ I’m like, ‘Wow.””

Iggy Azalea wants Tinashe for new album

Iggy Azalea wants Tinashe for her new album. The pair previously collaborated on a remix of the latter”s single “All Hands On Deck” but Iggy has now revealed she”s hoping to work with the R&B star again for her upcoming second album.

In another tweet, she added: “STUFF IS HAPPENING PEOPLE. BRB. “in addition to the aforementioned “stuff”... I shot my album cover today and im really excited. (sic).” And the “Fancy” hitmaker recently gave an update on the record, which she confessed she”s been working on with D.R.U.G.S. – which stands for Dirty Rotten Underground Sound – who produced her 2011 debut mixtape “Ignorant Art”. She said: “I just been doing my whole album with the guys I did my first mixtape with actually, and we’re almost finished and it’s been super cool working with my whole friends.”

Justin Bieber says 1D took his release date for publicity

Justin Bieber believes One Direction took his album release date for extra publicity. Last month, the 21-year-old star announced his new album “Purpose” would be out on November 13 and just weeks later, the boyband revealed they would also be releasing their fifth studio album “Made In The A.M.” on the same day meaning the two acts will go head-to-head in a chart battle. Opening up about the band”s choice of release date, he said: “They”re not really going on the road much, but we”re talking about them right now, so it gives them some promo, right? “So, that”s probably why they did it ... I think it was strategy on their part because my release date was first.” Despite the fourpiece group”s choice, Justin said he”s “excited” for the chart fight to commence to see whose record performs better.

he added: “But whatever. It”s whatever. It”s going to be fun. I”m excited to see what happens.” The “What Do You Mean?” hitmaker previously made light of the clash on Snapchat by suggesting the band should be scared about being trounced by his record. With a terrified expression, he said: “The face you make when you come out with an album the same day as Justin Bieber.”

Jack White produces ourtney Barnett cover

Courtney Barnett has covered the Rowland S. Howard Boys Next Door classic ‘Shivers’ and Jack White produced the track. A statement from White’s label reads, “Third Man is privileged to work with Melbourne, Australia’s very own Courtney Barnett, a sharp singersongwriter-guitarist who has quickly made her mark on garage pop fans worldwide with her witty, selfdeprecating, and authentic observations turned into raw, stream-of-consciousness lyrics and blunt melodies. The wry-and-dry songstress stopped by Third Man Studios in Nashville over a long weekend this summer to record a couple tracks and damn did she ever deliver.” The Howard song will be the b-side to ‘Boxing Day Blues Revisited’. It was recorded for a series of singles to be released by White on his Third Man Records label. Rowland S. Howard wrote the song for the pre-Birthday Party band The Boys Next Door but it took Newcastle’s The Screaming Jets to make the song a hit in Australia. Their version reached no 19 on the Australian charts in 1993.

Sir Tom Jones: Modern music is shit

Sir Tom Jones thinks modern music is “shit”. The “Delilah” hitmaker is unimpressed with the current crop of musical talent and believes he would have no problem becoming a star if he was just starting out in music now as modern stars are no match for classic artists like Elvis Presley. Asked if he would have the same success if he started singing now, he said: “Definitely. With the s**t that”s around now, no problem! I was up against Elvis Presley, Janis Joplin ... the British thing was huge then so to be successful at that time was tough.” However, the 75-year-old star is a fan of some new acts and praised Tori Kelly who was famously rejected on “American Idol” before forging her own career. He revealed: “I like Bruno Mars, and Tori Kelly - the best female around today, of the new female singers she”s the best. Truly great. She did try “The X Factor” and [Simon] Cowell said no, he hated her voice. There”s proof right there - if he hates it, it”s great. She plays great guitar, she”s a great looking chick and she sings like an angel. She can sing like Jessie J, all the vocal tricks. And she writes, too.” Meanwhile, he revealed he would be up to record a new James Bond theme tune following the success of 1965”s “Thunderball” but hasn”t yet listened to Sam Smith”s effort for “Spectre”, “Writing”s On The Wall”. Asked if he would sing a new Bond song, he told The Guardian newspaper: “Yes. With the right song, yes. I think the songs are different now though. When I recorded “Thunderball”, it fit Sean Connery. It was a macho song for a macho James Bond at the time. I like Sam Smith and I”m looking forward to hearing his song.”

Demi Lovato talks mental illness

Demi Lovato thinks it is unfortunate some members of the media characterise gunmen behind mass shootings as mentally ill. The 23-year-old singer has long been an advocate for the mentally ill and in the past the star has been very vocal about her own struggles with addiction, self-harm and bipolar disorder. A 26-year-old gunman named Chris Harper Mercer killed nine people and injured about 20 after going on a shooting spree at 24

And although some are quick to claim Chris was mentally ill, Demi has invited people to take a different perspective on the matter. “Well, unfortunately, we’ve had several instances where mental health has been brought to the attention by the media because of these tragedies,” Demi explained during her Monday 5 October (15) appearance on news programme MSNBC Live with Tamron Hall. “I think it’s really important to remember that actually mental health — people with mental illness are actually more likely to inflict harm on themselves and become the victim rather than be the perpetrators.” Demi’s father Patrick, who also suffered from bipolar disorder, passed away in 2013. And she has previously spoken about how important it is to stand up for others who might be struggling with mental illness. “[The issue] is very important to me because I have struggled with bipolar disorder for several years now,” Demi told People magazine. “Also my father had schizophrenia and bipolar disorder as well, and I watched him live a very unfortunate life because of the lack of access to treatment. So it”s very personal to me. I just think mental illness is something people need to learn more about and the stigma needs to be taken away from. It”s also about speaking up for your community which is taking action, whether it”s writing a letter to Congress and telling them how this is affecting you and your life and how you would like to see mental health care more accessible in your community. “There”s so many different ways you can help. I think together as a country we have to step up and we have to do something about this issue that is becoming quite an epidemic.”

Multi-platinum selling British artist Sam Smith has become the latest musician to record a James Bond theme song, for the forthcoming SPECTRE. “Writing’s On The Wall” was released today via Capitol Records and is available to purchase and stream now. “Writing’s On The Wall” was co-written by Sam Smith and fellow GRAMMY® Award winner Jimmy Napes. The track is awash with cascading orchestration and delicate keys, whilst Smith’s impeccable vocals elegantly glide above the instrumentation, strewn throughout with his effortless falsetto. It is the first James Bond theme song recorded by a British male solo artist since 1965.

Seal all about love on new album

Seal”s new album is all about love. The “Kiss From A Rose” hitmaker - who split from his model wife Heidi Klum in 2012 - is gearing up to release “7” next month (06.11.15) on which he”s tried to portray all of the intricacies of being in love. He explained: “The album concerns the most sung about, most talked about, and most documented emotion - love. “I tried to capture all of the wonderfully different dynamics of love, whether it”s the anger, the acceptance, the bliss, the sadness, the elation, or the recklessness. It”s this emotion and the ways it makes us feel. It”s about the extreme joy and the extreme regret as well as all of the crazy things love makes us do.” The 52-year-old musician - who has kids Leni, 11, Henry, 10, Johan, eight, and Lou, five, and is reportedly expecting another child with his girlfriend Erica Packer - has once again worked with his longterm collaborator Trevor Horn on the LP but insisted they are so close they don”t even need to speak about music when they”re in the studio together. He said: “We barely spoke about music in the studio. “We talked more about life and our relationship over the years. He just understands how to place my voice. On the one hand, you have this elaborate production and signature of Trevor Horn, but you never lose sight of what it is I”m saying. That”s the narrative. There”s no producer who understands how to sustain and keep focused on the narrative of my voice and what I”m trying to say better than Trevor does. He pushes me, and we left it all on the court. He taught me a work ethic and approach to making records that will stay with me until the day I die.”

Hozier suing Chilly Gonzale

The 25-year-old singer/songwriter has started legal action against the musician after the latter accused him of plagiarism with his hit single “Take Me To Church”. Chilly, 43, recently commented on the similarities between the multi million-selling song and a track by

Multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles has announced plans to release her highly anticipated new studio album this fall through Epic Records. Entitled WHAT’S INSIDE: SONGS FROM WAITRESS, the album features songs from the upcoming Broadway musical Waitress, for which she wrote both music and lyrics. The musical, which will open at Broadway’s Brooks Atkinson Theatre in April 2016, is currently playing at The American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) in Cambridge, MA, where it runs through September 27th. Reuniting with KALEIDOSCOPE HEART producer Neal Avron, the album was recorded in New York and Los Angeles and is Sara’s much-anticipated follow-up to her highly-acclaimed, Grammy-nominated third studio album “The Blessed Unrest.” The album’s first single, “She Used to Be Mine,” released at iTunes and all digital retailers now.

his former collaborator Feist titled “How Come You Never Go There”. However, Hozier”s manager Caroline Downey has hit back at the allegations which she has slammed as being “groundless” and told the Irish edition of The Sunday Times newspaper that Hozier intends to pursue legal action. In a clip posted on YouTube by Chilly, which has since been deleted, he described the track as “the exact same thing” as Feist”s 2011 track. He said: “This sounds quite familiar to me, I must say. “This very slow and noble triple time and those sad chords. I think I know what it might be. “It”s almost the exact same thing. That”s a crazy coincidence that my good friend and musical little sister Feist with her song “How Come You Never Go There” had the exact same idea to use those chords and that slow triple time as Hozier. What are the chances? “I”m being told by the research staff that Feist”s track came out well over a year before Hozier”s. Doesn”t look so good does it? “Take Me To Church”? Maybe Feist should take him to court.”

Slash set to star in a dark fairytale film

Slash is set to star in a bizarre “dark fairytale” movie. The iconic guitarist is the latest musician to join the strange “Gutterdämmerung” film, which has been described as a “rock “n” roll/film/gig concept” from visual artist Bjorn Tagemose. The Guns N” Roses rocker will appear alongside Grace Jones, Lemmy, Iggy Pop, Justice, Josh Homme and other famous faces in the movie, which will involve the stars in a strange quest to find the “Phallic tool of eternal torment”. Despite a long list of musicians set to feature in the 1920”s Hollywood-inspired film, it will be silent apart from a lone piano and live rock band. The film will tell the story of a world saved of sin, including sex, drugs and rock “n” roll, which has the Devil”s guitar introduced once again by a “punk-angel” called Vicious, played by Iggy Pop.

Will Smith: New music is on its way

Will Smith has confirmed he is in the studio every day working on new music for the first time in 10 years. The 47-year-old is best known for his film work, starring in big budget movies including Men in Black, I Am Legend and Ali. But the multitalented star has also had a successful music career, releasing four albums as a solo artist in addition to collaborating with DJ Jazzy Jeff. His last record Lost and Found reached listeners in 2005, but Will has revealed he’s back in the studio working on new music. “I’m pretty much poppin’ in the studio every day and I’m looking for artists to collaborate with,” he told DJ Zane Lowe on Monday (05Oct15). ”I’ve probably recorded 30 songs. I have six or seven that I really like.” Will had major hits in the 90s and early noughties with songs like Gettin’ Jiggy wit It, Miami and Wild Wild West. But the father-of-three admits things have changed a bit since he was last in the recording studio and it’s taking some time for him to find his voice again. “I have so many things I wanted to say,” he explained. “I’m struggling with saying them that fit the flavour of the music I turn to.” During his chat with the radio host, Will also confirmed he will be touring with his close pal DJ Jazzy Jeff next year (16). “Jeff and I actually have never done a full tour,” he added. “So this summer will be the first time we go out on a full world tour.” As well as his music, Will is still working on acting projects, including the highly anticipated Suicide Squad movie. The film has an all-star cast

Since leaving home in 1961 to pursue a career in music, TG Sheppard has done it all. He scored a job as a promotions executive for RCA Records, where he became friends with Elvis Presley who believed in his talent so much that he gave him his first tour bus, topped the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart an astonishing 21 times, and left an everlasting mark on Country music. Over the years, the smooth singer/songwriter has made a lot of impressive friends, which inspired the vision for his upcoming album, Legendary Friends & Country Duets, which is set for release on Oct. 30 via Cleopatra Records. On the upcoming project, TG collaborates with some of the most influential artists of all-time and those that he can actually call his personal friends. “In my 40 years of recording music, this album has to be my most favorite I’ve ever recorded,” says T.G. Sheppard. “I’m very honored that so many of my personal friends came in to sing, with no questions asked, and gave their all.”

including Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney and Jared Leto. But two-time Oscar-nominee Will admits he never got to know Jared outsideSINGLE of his Joker TW ARTIST persona. “We worked together for six months and we’ve never exchanged a word outside of ‘action’ and ‘cut.’” He laughed. “I’ve only ever spoken to him as Deadshot and him as the Joker character.”

Mark Ronson: Puff Daddy dollars saved me!

Music producer Mark Ronson was saved by a $100 tip from Puff Daddy on two separate occasions. The Uptown Funk hitmaker may have plenty money in the bank now, but when he started his career he was a poor club DJ in New York. However, his luck changed one night, when Puff Daddy came to one of his gigs. “Puffy... was like, “Yeah, man,” he gave me his number, written down on a piece of paper, and I framed it in this cheap plastic frame above my turntables — because he gave me a $100 tip,” he recalled during an appearance at The New Yorker Festival on Saturday (03Oct15). “He tried to give me $100, and I was like “No, thank you,” and he was like, “Just take the $100,” and I was like, “No, no, no, it is enough that you put out such good music.” He was like, “Take the f**king $100.”” Mark was making around $300 a night at the time and eventually he had to spend his prized possession. Since finding fame thanks to his work with the likes of Amy Winehouse, as well as having hit records of his own like Uptown Funk, Mark has crossed paths with Puff on a number of occasions. “I told him this story about 15 years later and I was like, “Aw man, you came to this party...” And I told the story out in front of maybe ten people, and I was like, “and I had to take the $100 out,” and he was like, “Aw man,” and he reaches in and he gives me $100, and I”m thinking this is a

pretty good racket!” he laughed. His joy was short lived though, with the second tip lasting even less timeLABEL in his hands than the original. “The next day I”m going back to London, so I”m in a cab like, “JFK, please,” and we get like halfway there, and I”m like, “F**k, my wallet,”” he continued. “I realise all I have is the $100 from Puffy, and it was like, at least the last time it made it almost six months - this one didn”t even make it a day.”

Justin Bieber planning tour with Ariana Grande

Justin Bieber is tipped to be planning a world tour alongside Ariana Grande, which could see them performing together. In August the 21-yearold singer confirmed his new album will hit stores on November 13 (15) - the same day boy band One Direction”s latest record goes on sale. It seems Justin is planning a series of shows to promote the LP, with a source suggesting he wants Ariana, 22, to help go on the road with him. “The whole thing will hopefully end in several (US) stadium dates with special guest Ariana Grande,” the insider told New York Daily News. “This is in the very early stages but serious conversations are taking place. “They would both perform their solo hits then team up together for several duets.” Although planning is ongoing, Justin and Ariana are both said to be excited about the prospect of working together. If the plan does pan out, it won”t be the first time the pair have hit the stage together. Justin joined Ariana for two of her shows this year (15), including one in Los Angeles where they teamed up for a couple of songs. “There is a ton of crossover in their fan base,” another source explained. “If it does happen, it will be the top tour of 2016, pulling in hundreds of millions for the two singers.” Justin will be the headline act, but the proposal is thought to be for the two to work together a great deal. That would mean

Brad Paisley isn’t slowing up one bit. He’s now taking his new “Country Nation” (Arista Nashville) for a spin and many of our music and program directors are jumping all over this one. The same can be said about the new Dustin Lynch. “Mind Reader” (Broken Bow) is the cut that is getting a big thumbs up from our panel and for good reason, it’s a real winner. Carrie Underwood is on fire and make no mistake about that. Country radio is loving her new “Smoke Break” (19 Recordings Limited/Arista Nashville) and that keeps the good folks at American Idol pretty happy as they get set for their final season. The Band Perry continues their winning ways and are keeping their streak of hits alive and well. “Live Forever” (Republic Nashville) is their current and you may want power this one up in the morning’s just to wake the folks up. Sam Hunt continues to be the hottest male artist at Country radio. Everything he touches these days turns to gold and his new “Break Up In A Small Town” (MCA Nashville) is no exception. You can expect some very big things ahead for Sam and this cut in the weeks to come. Tell him I said so. Luke Bryan is your new king of Country and his summer tour and awards showing is all you need to know. He and his label are pulling out all the stops to make sure that “Strip It Down” (Capitol Nashville) goes to the top of the charts and that just might happen. I really like the new single from Sammy Sadler. “No Place To Land” (S) is Sammy at his very best and please see about making some room for this multi-talented recording artist. Jon Pardi also has a real good thing going. The track “Head Over Boots” (Capitol Nashville) is getting some major support at the format so you might want to spend more time with it. Ronny Collins is pulling in some rather impressive numbers at radio. It’s all thanks to “Remember When” (Silver Buckle) which is quite a good single to keep in a solid rotation. Also getting some love and support is the latest from Olivia Lane. Her “You Part 2” (Big Spark Music Group) is fast becoming a real favorite among our music and & programmers so that may tell you that there is a story going on that needs your immediate attention. Eileen Carey is getting lots of love and support for her latest offering. “Faith” (RolleyCstr Music) is the cut that is rocking our Country charts. It’s also getting some nice crossover action so that should tell you that something very special is going on. Emily Haines is also attracting attention at radio for the track “Outside In” (SSM Evolution). David Nail has a good thing in the works as his “Night’s On Fire” (MCA Nashville) takes flight. Joey Canyon has a new single that is getting raves. “Life Without You” (Glo Dot) is the single and it appears that this one is set to do some amazing things in the weeks to come. Don’t be the last to add this monster record. Morgan Riley is taking a good spin with “Down South” (Skytone) and so far so very, very good. Florida Georgia Line is moving to the top with their “Anything Goes” (Big Machine/Universal). Seems like everything they do moves to the very top of the charts. Old Dominion has also found a lot of love for their “Break Up With Him”. Chuck Murphy is getting some nice Country attention for his new “How Many Times” (One West). The single is a mainstream smash and the same is set for his story at the Country format. He’s been here before and this time out he’s here as a solo artist. There is a big story building for Chris Cox. His “Honky Tonk Hellcat” (CMM) has been the surprise hit of the year and our stations are all over this one from Country to Mainstream and in a very big way. Our Fall Music Preview shows the very best in Country radio and please keep your support going strong for all of these very talented artists. I’ll have more for you next time right here.

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 - OCTOBER 9, 2015

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).
