UMe TO REISSUE BECK’S ENTIRE DGC/GEFFEN/INTERSCOPE CATALOG ON VINYL

FIRST RELEASES INCLUDE ODELAY, SEA CHANGE AND GUERO ON OCTOBER 28

MULTI-GRAMMY-WINNING MASTERPIECE ODELAY
CELEBRATES 20th ANNIVERSARY THIS YEAR

42658_02_Beck_Gatefold.indd

Los Angeles, CA – September 20, 2016  – Since introducing himself to the world in 1994 with his genre-defying, multi-platinum debut, Mellow Gold, Beck has blazed a path into the future while simultaneously foraging through the past. Throughout his singular career he has utilized all manners and eras of music, blurring boundaries and shattering expectations with each album. From the world-tripping atmospherics of 1998’s Mutations and the florescent funk of 1999’s Midnite Vultures through the somber reflections of 2002’s Sea Change, 2005’s platinum tour de force Guero and 2006’s sprawling The Information, no Beck record has ever sounded like its predecessor.

This fall, UMe will begin to reissue Beck’s entire envelope-pushing DGC/Geffen/Interscope catalog on vinyl, beginning on October 28 with the trifecta of his 1996 GRAMMY® Award-winning single LP game-changer, Odelay, 2002’s beautiful, brokenhearted, Sea Change, and 2005’s Guero, which saw Beck reunite with the Dust Brothers. Sea Change will be released as a double LP while Guero will be made available for the first time ever as a single LP. Mellow Gold, Mutations, Midnight Vultures, The Information and Modern Guilt will be announced at a later date. Pre-order: Odelay, Sea Change, Guero.

Originally released 20 years ago on June 18, 1996 on DGC, Odelay was Beck’s breakthrough follow-up to his platinum bow, Mellow Gold. Selling more than two million copies in the U.S., the double-platinum-certified Odelay featured classics that loom large in Beck’s live sets to this day, including “Where It’s At,” “Devils Haircut” and “The New Pollution.” Odelay won two GRAMMY® Awards in 1997, Best Alternative Music Album and Best Male Rock Vocal Performance for “Where It’s At,” and was Beck’s first album to be nominated for Album of the Year—the top honor his most recent album Morning Phase took home last year. Produced by Beck with collaborators the Dust Brothers, Mario Caldato Jr., Brian Paulson, Tom Rothrock and Rob Schnapf, Odelay continued to demonstrate and expand upon Beck’s eclectic stylistic palette. It was universally praised upon its release, named Album of the Year in both Rolling Stone and the prestigious Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics’ poll, as well as the U.K. New Musical Express’ critics’ poll, where the album represented Beck’s platinum breakthrough in England. In 1998, Q magazine readers voted Odelay one of the greatest albums of all time, while Rolling Stone ranked it in its 2003 list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time,” and #9 on its list of the “100 Best Albums of the ‘90s.”

Beck’s seventh album, Sea Change, signified a dramatic musical shift in sound and tone from its predecessor, the funky, R&B-influenced Midnite Vultures, and as its title suggested, was a profound transformation. Inspired by the dissolution of a longtime relationship, Beck transformed his sadness into both his most personal and beautiful record to date, trading his trademark sample-filled songs and impressionistic, irreverent lyrics for pensive melodies, sweeping strings and direct, confessional lyrics. Produced by Nigel Godrich, the album, which peaked at #8 on the Billboard 200, was made with a full band which included guitarist Smokey Hormel, keyboard player Roger Manning, drummer Joey Waronker; Beck’s father, David Campbell, provided string arrangements. While widely praised upon release in 2002, the album has only grown in stature. Rolling Stone’s David Fricke hailed it as “the best album Beck has ever made,” adding it’s his “Blood On The Tracks,” and the record was listed in their 2009 definitive list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time” and the “100 Best Albums of the 2000s.” In SPIN’s 10-year anniversary piece, they declared it “the best melancholy album of the millennium” while The Guardiancalled it “his masterpiece.” The album will be released as a double LP with a download card featuring 320kbps AAC MP4 audio files of the entire album.

Beck kept fans and critics guessing about how he’d follow up Sea Change and in 2005 released the genre-mashing Guero which shot to #2 on the Billboard Top 200–his highest charting album to date. Beck’s eighth album saw him reuniting with the Dust Brothers with an assist from producer Tony Hoffer (Midnite Vultures), for a tour de force of Latin rhythms, rhymes, guitars, beats, samples, 8-bit electronics, turntables and vocoder for a fun and freewheeling ride through rock, hip-hop, boss nova, country-blues and soul. Album opener and lead single, “E-Pro” went to No. 1 on the Billboard Modern Rock Chart, while “Girl,” “Hell Yes,” “Go It Alone” (featuring Jack White on bass) and more became instant fan favorites. The album was a hit with critics as well with New York magazine enthusing, “Beck integrates his personae into a fairly seamless whole, and his knack for synthesizing disparate musical elements (hip-hop, robot funk, blues, country, jazz, garage rock, etc.) extends beyond samples and individual tracks. The songs migrate smoothly from one to the next; there aren’t any throwaway numbers to sabotage the album’s momentum; the whole thing coheres,” while Rolling Stone dubbed it “his liveliest and jumpiest music in years.”

LAZARUS CAST ALBUM PRE-ORDER LIVE NOW
Animated Visuals For Instant Grat Tracks “Life On Mars?” and “Lazarus” Designed By Jonathan Barnbrook Up Now
 Vinyl Unboxing Video Revealed At http://smarturl.it/lazarusvinyl
2CD / 3LP Featuring Three Final David Bowie Recordings To Be Released October 21 On ISO / Columbia Records

Pre-orders are now live for the Lazarus Cast Album, featuring the cast and band of the original New York production performing their versions of the David Bowie songs from the show, out October 21 on ISO / Columbia Records. All digital pre-orders will instantly receive downloads of the cast versions of “Life On Mars?” (sung by Sophia Anne Caruso) and “Lazarus” (sung by Michael C. Hall). Animated visuals for these two tracks have been created by album designer Jonathan Barnbrook — who also worked with Bowie on the ★,The Next Day, Heathen and Nothing Has Changed albums — and can be seen at http://smarturl.it/LazarusLOM and http://smarturl.it/LazarusVevo. Additionally, an unboxing video of the distinctive triple LP vinyl edition has been revealed at http://smarturl.it/lazarusvinyl. In addition to the CD, vinyl LP and digital album configurations, a limited edition white color vinyl LP (LP 3 only) is available exclusively at Barnes & Noble and through David Bowie’s webstore.

Standing alongside the Lazarus cast’s interpretations of classics from his canon are the three final David Bowie studio recordings. Co-produced by Bowie and Tony Visconti and recorded with Donny McCaslin and his quartet, the same band that played on Bowie’s ★ album, these last three songs — “No Plan,” “Killing A Little Time,” “When I Met You” — bring completely new dimensions to their cast counterparts. The original ★ version of “Lazarus” is also included on the cast album.

★ was shortlisted for the 2016 Mercury Prize and as part of the awards ceremony last night at the Eventim Apollo in London, Michael C. Hall performed “Lazarus” with Henry Hey and the Lazarus house band.

The Lazarus Cast Album was produced by the show’s musical director Henry Hey, who had previously worked with Bowie on The Next Day, and features vocals from Hall, Caruso, Cristin Milioti, Michael Esper, Charlie Pollock and other cast members backed by the seven-piece house band Hey assembled for the New York run. The album was recorded January 11, 2016. Upon arriving at the studio, the musicians and cast were shocked and saddened to learn that Bowie had passed away the evening before. Their emotional performances that day are captured on this recording.

Written by Bowie and Enda Walsh, directed by Ivo Van Hove and produced by Robert Fox, Lazarus opened December 7, 2015 at the New York Theatre Workshop to great critical acclaim. The New York Times raved “Ice-cold bolts of ecstasy shoot like novas through the glamorous muddle and murk of Lazarus, the great-sounding, great-looking and mind-numbing new musical built around songs by David Bowie,” while Rolling Stone hailed it as a “Surrealistic Tour de Force… milk-swimming, lingerie-sniffing, gin-chugging theater at its finest.”

Lazarus begins its London run November 8 at The Kings Cross Theatre.

BECK
“WOW” VIDEO
BECK & GRADY HALL CO-DIRECT & COLLABORATE WITH COLLECTIVE OF ARTISTS TO CREATE “WOW” DREAMSCAPE
LIVE NOW ON VEVO AND YOUTUBE

wow_3

“Wow,” the utterly infectious Beck single that’s been streamed more than 20 million times worldwide since its June 2 release and hailed as “an outrageous pop anthem” (ROLLING STONE) with “a kaleidoscopic chorus” (USA TODAY), now has a visual manifestation. With help from the collective of visual artists that heralded the song’s June 2nd arrival, co-directors Beck and Grady Hall have built a mesmerizing “Wow” world: one that alternates between Beck busting his sweetest signature moves and the adventures of surrealist cowboys, sentient floral arrangements and other imagination-stretching imagery. Artist contributors to the “Wow” video are Sam Cannon, Randy Cano, Andy Gregg, David McLeodJohn McLaughlin, Jess Rona, and Steve Smith.

The stunning “Wow” clip adds further dimensions to what began in June as the first ever Instagram Explore feature song premiere. Dozens of Instagram artist visuals set to snippets of the new single received a combined 6 million views—plus 1.6 million views on @Instagram/@Music posts. The clips continue to live on the official @beck Instagram and Beck.com.

”The cumulative effect of viewing images on Instagram and other places online was an influence,” Beck said at the time. “Now you can scroll through the most disparate, diverse and fascinating images in the span of minutes. It’s a new form of experiencing visual media. The infinite amount of stuff out there is overwhelming and inspiring in the way that you have a form of expression that is alive and changing every second. Unlike a book or a film, it is continuously flowing, changing and is non-linear.”

In addition to heading out on a September 15-24 mini-tour, Beck is currently putting finishing touches on his forthcoming follow-up to last year’s Album of the Year GRAMMY winner Morning Phase. Co-produced by his Sea Change-era bandmate Greg Kurstin and Beck and to be released on Capitol Records, Beck’s 13th studio opus will feature both “Wow” and last year’s summer smash “Dreams.”

As the November 8 UK opening of Lazarus at London’s Kings Cross Theatre approaches, the cast and band of the original New York production will release their versions of the David Bowie songs from the show as the Lazarus Cast Album on October 21 on ISO / Columbia / RCA Records. The album will be available for pre-order September 16 with all orders receiving instant downloads of the cast versions of “Life On Mars?” (sung by Sophia Anne Caruso) and the title track (sung by Michael C.

The original ★ version of “Lazarus” is also included on the cast album.

The ★ album has been shortlisted for the 2016 Mercury Prize and as part of the awards ceremony on September 15 Michael C. Hall will be performing the song “Lazarus” with Henry Hey and the Lazarus house band. The show will be broadcast live from the Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith on BBC 4 and BBC Radio 6 Music.

The Lazarus cast album was produced by the show’s musical director Henry Hey, who had previously worked with Bowie on “The Next Day” and features vocals from Hall, Caruso, Cristin Milioti, Michael Esper and other cast members backed by the seven-piece house band Hey assembled for the New York run.

Directed by Andrew Dominik (Chopper, the Oscar nominated The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Killing Them Softly), One More Time With Feeling began as a performance-based film, but evolved into something more complex as Dominik delved into the personal backdrop of the writing and recording of the album.

Having just played two sold out shows at New York City’s Terminal 5, PJ Harvey is currently en route to the west coast to play a third sold out U.S. gig August 18th at Los Angeles’ Shrine Expo Hall.

On Monday night’s show at Terminal 5, Kory Grow of Rolling Stone Magazine writes:

“From the first song, PJ Harvey’s current live show is a tour de force of beautiful and savage artistry. Her latest album, The Hope Six Demolition Project, reads like an elegy for imperialism, its songs become a dramatic celebration of hope live…By the time the night was done the audience called for an encore, and when that was done, it screamed for another, chanting and clapping until well after Harvey’s microphone was removed. The show is that good.”

PJ Harvey will now play an additional Los Angeles show at The Fonda Theatre on Friday, August 19th.

PAUL McCARTNEY SIGNS WORLDWIDE RECORDING AGREEMENT WITH CAPITOL RECORDS
Historic deal encompasses McCartney’s catalogue of master recordings
and welcomes him home to label where he began his extraordinary career


Paul McCartney
 has signed a worldwide recording agreement with Capitol Records, it was announced today by Capitol Music Group (CMG) Chairman & CEO Steve Barnett.

“This is genuinely exciting for me,” McCartney said. “Not only was Capitol my first U.S. record label, but the first record I ever bought was Gene Vincent’s ‘Be-Bop-A-Lula’ on the Capitol label.”

This historic contract encompasses McCartney’s entire body of post-Beatles work, from his 1970 McCartney album, through his decade with Wings, to the dozens of solo and collaborative works that have continually reaffirmed his standing as the most popular, influential and acclaimed artist in the history of recorded music.   In a career that spans six decades, McCartney has sold more than 500 million records worldwide.  He was recently named the United Kingdom’s most successful albums artist of all time by the Official Albums Chart Company and was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1997 for his services to music.

Paul McCartney is the recipient of countless accolades and awards. He is a 21-time Grammy winner, two-time inductee into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, an Academy Award winner and honoree of the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors, the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song and France’s Légion d’Honneur.

McCartney is currently working on a new studio album, while a comprehensive plan for the artist’s catalogue is being conceived by Capitol and Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) – in conjunction with the artist and his management team – and will be implemented beginning July 2017. The catalogue moves to Capitol/UMe from Concord, Paul’s previous label partner on such Grammy-winning albums as Band On The Run (Best Historical Album, 2012), Kisses On The Bottom (Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, 2013) and Wings Over America (Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package, 2014).

According to Barnett, “Paul McCartney’s association with Capitol has long defined so much of our historic legacy, and all of us here are extremely proud and honored that he has chosen to come back home.  Paul’s indelible contributions to our culture are second to none, and his constant evolution as an artist and performer continues to inspire and enrich the lives of countless millions of people.  We are overjoyed that Paul will be creating new music for years to come, and that Capitol will be helping to present it to the world.”

Lucian Grainge, Chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group, said: “It would be simply impossible to overstate what an honor it is to welcome Paul back to Capitol. It’s a homecoming of one of the greatest musical artists of all time to the label that first helped bring his incredible music to the world.  Paul’s astonishing  career has shown no limits — in creativity, in commercial longevity, and in its impact on people and cultures in every corner of the globe.  We are thrilled at both Capitol and UMG to be able to contribute to the next chapter in Paul’s extraordinary career.”

Michele Anthony, UMG’s Executive Vice President of U.S. Recorded Music added, “Paul’s vital and legendary body of work as a solo artist remains essential, relevant and so highly in demand.  We’re beyond thrilled at the opportunity to put the global resources of Universal Music behind Paul’s forthcoming work, as well as introducing his previous iconic albums to new generations of fans around the world.”

The first opportunity to hear any of the songs from the album will be at the worldwide screenings of One More Time With Feeling, directed by Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Killing Them Softly). Officially selected to world premiere at the 2016 Venice Film Festival, One More Time With Feeling will screen in more than 800 cinemas across the world on September 8, 2016, immediately prior to the release of Skeleton Tree the following day.

One More Time With Feeling evolved from a performance-based concept into something more complex as Dominik delved into the background of the writing and recording of the album. Interwoven throughout the Bad Seeds’ filmed performance of the new album are interviews and footage shot by Dominik, accompanied by Cave’s intermittent narration and improvised rumination. The result is stark, fragile and raw and a true testament to an artist searching for his way through the darkness.
