Jun 24, 2016

NEW YORK, June 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston progressive folk duo Tall Heights have announced the release of their debut major label LP, Neptune, out August 19 on Sony Music Masterworks. Neptune is the follow up to 2015's Holding On, Holding Out EP which was met with critical acclaim from outlets like NPR and Wall Street Journal who compared their emotive harmonies and poignant lyrics to the likes of Simon & Garfunkel, Sigur Ros and Bon Iver. Of particular note is the track "Spirit Cold", the lead single from the forthcoming release which has quickly reached over 5.6 Million streams on Spotify. This week, Stereogum premiered the lush, winsome follow up single "River Wider". We encourage you to post and share here!

The multi-talented singer songwriters, composers, and instrumentalists featuring Paul Wright on cello/vocals and Tim Harrington on acoustic guitar/vocals got their start busking on the streets of Boston, growing up in a neighboring town in Massachusetts. Neptune is a far lusher construct than those early acoustic days — along with pristine and emotive vocal harmonies, there's subtly chugging electric guitar and a spare descending bassline on "Iron in the Fire," ethereal synthesizers and a spacious drum part on "Spirit Cold," a brittle splash of percussion to open "Backwards and Forwards" and feedback created by two cellphones on "Cross My Mind."

The band is on tour all Summer through Autumn including an opening slot for José González. See full list of dates HERE. For a taste of Tall Heights' captivating live show, watch the band's stunning live performance of album single "Spirit Cold" HERE.

Jun 24, 2016 | Watch the Erykah Badu-Directed Video For "Maiysha (So Long)" http://smarturl.it/Maiysha_So_Long

New Video From The New Album of Miles Davis Recordings Reimagined by Robert Glasper - EVERYTHING'S BEAUTIFUL

Out Now Featuring Badu, KING, John Scofield, Bilal, Ledisi, DJ Spinna, Stevie Wonder, Laura Mvula, Hiatus Kaiyote & More

Jun 24, 2016

NEW YORK, June 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Longtime friends, collaborators and Grammy-winning musicians Erykah Badu and Robert Glasper have teamed up again for the track & video for "Maiysha (So Long)", from new album Everything's Beautiful--the visionary exploration of Miles Davis' music, featuring reimagined interpretations of his music produced by Glasper. The track's lyrics were written by Badu, and were based on "Maiysha" by Davis.

Erykah Badu

The video, entitled "So Long…That's What She Said," which Badu describes as having the feel of a short film, was conceptualized, written and directed by Badu. In keeping with the song's deceptively humorous lyrics, the "short" is a somewhat satirical wink at the musical performances from the classic variety shows of the '50s and '60s. The video stars a neurotic, beatnik chanteuse named Sarah Bellam—one of Badu's many personas—with Glasper as her tormented keyboard player and lover. The video also features a cameo by acclaimed harmonicist Frédéric Yonnet as the trumpet player performing Miles Davis' solo. The supporting musicians include Rashad "Ringo" Smith, drums, and Braylon Lacy, bass.

The "short" was co-produced by Badu's own Control Freaq Media and long-time collaborators Coodie and Chike of Creative Control, the team behind Badu's 2010 acclaimed and controversial "Window Seat" music video. In support of the video's release, Badu and Control Freaq Media have crafted a unique digital marketing campaign that includes a series of movie inspired posters, animated GIFs, and exclusive bonus content announced on Badu's social media platforms. Watch the video here: http://smarturl.it/Maiysha_So_Long

Everything's Beautiful is out now and is part of Columbia/Legacy's commemoration of the globally renowned music innovator's 90th birthday. Released in late-May, the album debuted at #1 on Billboard's Jazz Album chart, and first week sales saw Davis charting the highest he ever has on the R&B Album Chart (#5), R&B/Hip Hop Album Chart (#10) and the Tastemaker Album Chart (#17).

The album is a beautifully crafted collection produced by Glasper, blending a diverse group of master takes and outtakes from across the incomparable Miles Davis Columbia catalog with an impressive lineup of contemporary artists and musicians to create original interpretations. Some of the featured guest artists on Everything's Beautiful include Illa J, Erykah Badu, Bilal, Phonte, Hiatus Kaiyote, Laura Mvula, KING, Georgia Ann Muldrow, John Scofield, Ledisi, DJ Spinna and Stevie Wonder.

Everything's Beautiful is unlike any other in Davis' discography. From the familiar (riffs and passages within the catalog) to the obscure (samples of Miles' in-studio instructions spoken after false starts), Glasper has built something unique but still unquestionably Miles. The album was executive produced with members of Davis' family—Erin Davis, Cheryl Davis and Vince Wilburn, Jr. from Miles Davis Properties, LLC. The cover art was created by Francine Turk and integrates elements of Miles Davis' artwork. With the cover, Turk creates a visual that is similar to the idea of Robert Glasper taking fragments of Miles music and reinterpreting in a unique and modern way. Everything's Beautiful is available now via iTunes (http://smarturl.it/Davis_Glasper_iTunes) and at the official Miles Davis store on milesdavis.com.

Erykah Badu is a four-time GRAMMY award-winning singer, songwriter and producer who also describes herself as a "DJ, director, activist, holistic healer, doula, veggie, bgirl, observer, and hustler." Regarded as the Queen of Neo Soul, Badu's sound—a concoction of soul, hip-hop and jazz—cannot be confined to a single genre. She has released five universally acclaimed studio albums and one live album. Last November, Badu released her first collection of songs in five years with the mixtape But You Caint Use My Phone, which included her viral take on Drake's "Hotline Bling" as well as a collaboration with Andre 3000. This summer, Badu appears in The Land, a film that debuted at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

Jun 16, 2016 | RCA/Legacy Recordings Set to Release Elvis Presley's Way Down In The Jungle Room, A New 2CD Collection of Elvis' Final Studio Recordings, on Friday, August 5

Definitive Compilation of Presley's Last Sessions--Recorded in Graceland's Legendary «Jungle Room»--Includes Studio Masters, Rare Alternate Takes and 16-page Booklet

Jun 16, 2016

NEW YORK, June 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- RCA Records and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will release Way Down In The Jungle Room, a definitive new 2CD collection of Elvis Presley's last studio recordings, on Friday, August 5.

Album Cover

The most complete and comprehensive collection of Presley's final studio recordings ever assembled in one anthology, Way Down In The Jungle Room is an essential and welcome addition for every fan's library. In the mid-1970s, Elvis, the King of Rock 'n' Roll, became another kind of pioneer as one of the world's first major recording artists to create fully-realized professional level records in the intimacy of his own home studio.

With original recordings executive-produced by Elvis Presley with producer Felton Jarvis (who'd helmed most of Elvis' records from 1966-1977), Way Down In The Jungle Room brings together, for the first time in one collection, master recordings and rare outtakes laid down during two mythic sessions (February 2-8, 1976 and October 28-30, 1976) in Graceland's den--known as the "Jungle Room"--which was converted into a professional caliber recording studio for the purpose of capturing these indelible performances. The outtakes have been newly mixed by Grammy Award-winning engineer Matt Ross-Spang at Sam Phillips Recording in Memphis, Tennessee.

For these sessions, Elvis was backed by many members of his longtime touring band including: James Burton (guitar), Ronnie Tutt (drums), David Briggs (keyboards), Glenn D. Hardin (keyboards), Jerry Scheff (bass), Norbert Putnam (bass) and J.D. Sumner & the Stamps (vocals).

In 1976, when the tracks for Way Down In The Jungle Room were cut, Elvis Presley had been an RCA Records recording artist for 20 years, inventing the sound and attitude that defined the very essence of rock 'n' roll. That same year, RCA released The Sun Sessions, the label's first official collection of the electrifying 1954-1955 Elvis recordings that launched his career while transforming the world.

Having entered his 40s, Elvis Presley was evolving as an artist and, rather than bask in the nostalgia of his 1950s watershed recordings, was looking for new ways to express himself musically. Needing to create new sounds for a new era, Elvis Presley--who'd been charting on Country and Adult Contemporary stations--decided to convert the Hawaiian-themed "Jungle Room" (a relaxation den in his fabled Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tennessee) into an informal home studio, where he could lay down tracks the way he wanted, outside the budget and scheduling pressures of the professional studios he'd worked in previously. With the help of RCA's mobile recording truck and longtime producer Felton Jarvis and engineer Mike Moran at the board, Elvis tackled a far-ranging mix of country and pop covers ("Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain," "I'll Never Fall in Love Again," "Danny Boy," "Solitaire") and late-period classics of his catalog, such as "Moody Blue" and "Way Down."

Ten of the "Jungle Room" master takes first emerged on From Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis, Tennessee in the spring of 1976, including the Top 10 hit "Hurt." More tracks from these sessions were later paired with live material and released in July 1977 (a month before Elvis' death on August 16) on the Moody Blue album. The title track would top the country charts that month; "Way Down" would follow. These were the last studio albums released during Elvis' lifetime.

According to the album's producers, Way Down In The Jungle Room has been resequenced to "bring a fresh perspective to the material." The material on Disc 2 - The Outtakes was mixed for this collection at the Sam Phillips Recording Service in Memphis and includes both outtakes and in-the-studio dialog, providing a "fly-on-the-wall experience of what the sessions were like." With the exception of track 13 ("She Thinks I Still Care"), the performances on Disc 2 have been sequenced in the order they were recorded.

Way Down In The Jungle Room with also be available on 150g 12" vinyl in a 2LP gatefold sleeve and as a digital collection.

Way Down In The Jungle Room may be pre-ordered now:

Jun 14, 2016 | Alan Jackson's Genuine: The Alan Jackson Story, A Definitive Three CD Career-Defining Collection

Previously Released Exclusively Through Walmart, Available Worldwide Friday, August 5

Jun 14, 2016

NEW YORK, June 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Genuine: The Alan Jackson Story, a definitive three CD career-defining anthology of music including classic tracks, hits, and rarities including eight previously unreleased recordings from country superstar Alan Jackson will be released worldwide digitally and on CD beginning August 5. Released by Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, and Arista Nashville, the collection was made available last year as a Walmart exclusive, and through alanjackson.com.

Cover

Genuine: The Alan Jackson Story brings together 59 indispensable classic recordings drawn from all phases of Jackson's career at Arista Nashville and debuts eight previously unreleased tracks including a live version of The Eagles' hit "Seven Bridges Road," recorded in 1997 and a rare live rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner," recorded in 2001.

The three-disc set is filled with such must-haves as "Don't Rock the Jukebox," "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" and "Drive"…Jackson's rarely-heard debut single, "Blue Blooded Woman" and signature songs like "Chattahoochee" and "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)," a song first heard by the world in 2001 when he performed it on the 35th annual CMA Awards.

Fans will also enjoy special packaging and a 58-page booklet filled with photos from Jackson's personal collection, providing glimpses of his early life in rural Georgia and revisiting some of his most-memorable career highlights. The Genuine: The Alan Jackson Story booklet also features tributes to Jackson and his music offered by such diverse talents as Kenny Chesney, Alison Krauss, Martina McBride, George Strait, Steven Tyler, Carrie Underwood, Lee Ann Womack, and the late George Jones.

The first artist signed to the newly-formed Arista Nashville imprint (shortly after the label's launch in 1989), Georgia-born singer/songwriter/musician/performer Alan Jackson combined elements of traditional American honky-tonk, bluegrass, gospel and mainstream country music with a fresh contemporary sound all his own.

During his tenure at Arista Nashville, Alan Jackson recorded an extraordinary 50 Top 10 hits, watching  35 of them reach the top of the country charts, including 26 Billboard #1's.

Alan Jackson is still at the top of his game. Last year he celebrated his 25th anniversary as a recording artist with a special 25-date tour and was honored with "Alan Jackson: 25 Years of Keepin' It Country," a retrospective exhibit at Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum. In July 2015, Jackson released his 15th studio album, Angels and Alcohol, through Alan's Country Records/EMI Nashville; the record became his 14th #1 album.

Genuine: The Alan Jackson Story also comes with an exclusive poster featuring a panoramic shot of the entire visual exhibit from "Alan Jackson: 25 Years of Keepin' It Country."
