Ryan Adams’ Prisoner was released February 17, debuting #3 on the U.S. album chart, #1 on the Billboard Rock Albums chart, and generating wave after wave of the most effusive critical praise of Adams’ career. NEW YORK MAGAZINE (“Genius…the best thing he’s put out in a decade”), ROLLING STONE (“Personal and urgent…close to the magnum opus of his dreams”), ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY (“the poet laureate of unadulterated heartbreak, a master chronicler of the endless shapes and colors of romantic pain”) and the ASSOCIATED PRESS hailed Prisoner as the multiple Grammy nominee’s best in 10 years or more, while PEOPLE noted “even when his lyrics cling to loss, Adams lets in light with melody,” and The AV CLUB observed “He sounds like he’s savoring how full of life his music is, no matter what it took to make it so. He hasn’t just turned misery into art; he’s turned it into joy.”

Ryan Adams is currently in the midst of the Prisoner world tour, which swings through New York next week, beginning with a May 1 stop at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert followed by back to back sold out shows at the Beacon Theater May 2 and 3. The tour circles the globe through late September and sees Ryan headlining the likes of the Greek Theaters in Los Angeles and Berkeley, Red Rocks, an already sold out September date at the Royal Albert Hall and more. Ryan has also been making the festival rounds including Lollapalooza and Shaky Knees, while adding multiple headline shows due to popular demand from St. Paul MN to Dublin.

Hiding All Away – Lovely Creatures: The Best of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds DVD

“There are some people out there who just don’t know where to start with The Bad Seeds. Others know the catalogue better than I do! This release is designed to be a way into three decades of music making. That’s a lot of songs. The songs we have chosen are the ones that have stuck around, for whatever reason. Some songs are those that demand to be played live. Others are lesser songs that are personal favorites of ours. Others are just too big and have too much history to leave out. And there are those that didn’t make it, poor things. They are the ones you must discover by yourselves.” Nick Cave

Lovely Creatures is the most comprehensive overview of the recorded work of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds to date. Spanning thirty years of music from their debut album From Her To Eternity through to Push The Sky Away their 15th studio album, the collection navigates one of the most exhilarating, idiosyncratic and inventive bodies of work created in contemporary music.

Included are long-standing live favorites “Stagger Lee” and “The Mercy Seat”, their hit single from 1995 “Where The Wild Roses Grow” through to recent fan favorites “Jubilee Street” and “We No Who U R”. There are songs that newcomers may only know from their appearance on film and television soundtracks, notably “O Children” (Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Pt. I)  and the ubiquitous “Red Right Hand”, most recently familiar to fans of the series Peaky Blinders.

The album was compiled by Nick Cave and founding member Mick Harvey, with help from the current Bad Seeds. Band members past and present raided their personal archives to provide previously unseen photos and memorabilia which have been collected into a beautiful hardcover book, along with a series of original essays. The book is available as part of the limited edition ‘Super Deluxe’ album collection that also comes with a two hour DVD containing rare and unseen archive footage. Lovely Creatures is available in four formats, all featuring personal and rare photographs of the band:  Standard CD, Triple LP, Deluxe 3CD with DVD and the Super Deluxe Limited Edition package.

Lovely Creatures was originally intended for release in 2015. Since its postponement the band have recorded and released their highly acclaimed 16th studio album Skeleton Tree.

Japanese press described the night as “another legendary performance”.Paul also plays three sold out shows at The Tokyo Dome this week – to 150,000 fans.

Paul McCartney has added a massive new run of U.S. dates to his One On One tour.

The newly announced dates kick off July 5th at Miami’s AmericanAirlines Arena—Paul’s first Miami appearance since his Up & Coming Tour hit Sun Life Stadium in 2010—then head northwest to Tampa, where Paul will play July 10th at the Amalie Arena, returning to the city for the first time since his 2005 US Tour. From there, One On One takes Paul to three cities and venues he’s never played before: July 13th at the Infinity Energy Arena in Duluth MN, July 15th at CenturyLink Center in Bossier City LA, and July 19th at the INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita KS. On July 21st Paul plays the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines IA followed by a July 23rd stop at CenturyLink Center in Omaha NE, returning to both cities for the first time since 2005’s US Tour. The tour’s July run concludes on the 25th at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre, Tinley Park in Tinley Park IL—Paul’s first appearance in the region since his now-legendary 2015 Lollapalooza headline.

One On One’s 2017 U.S. run will resume with Paul’s first ever show at the Prudential Center in Newark NJ on September 11th.Paul will then take up residence in New York City, playing his first full show at Madison Square Garden since 2005 on September 15th, then getting back to the scene of his unforgettable 2013 Brooklyn shows to play the Barclays Center on September 19th. Paul will then head upstate to make his debut appearance in Syracuse NY, playing the Carrier Dome on September 23rd, followed on September 26th by Paul’s first show at Long Island’s NYCB Live’s Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum since 2002’s Driving USA Tour. One On One’s fall dates will draw to a close October 1st at Detroit’s Little Caesars Arena, Paul’s first show at the brand new venue and first visit to the Motor City since 2015.

Paul McCartney’s One On One tour opened April 13, 2016 with Paul’s debut concert in Fresno CA. The show, which opened with Paul’s first performance of “A Hard Day’s Night” since The Beatles last played it 1965, drew instant and unanimous raves from near (“McCartney’s abundance of natural charm and charisma made this sold-out arena show feel and more like a really big piano bar”—The Fresno Bee) and far (“nearly three hours of music that moved gracefully from the intimate to the explosive… the emphasis never drifted from the music, ranging from generational anthems to post-Beatles deep cuts”—Rolling Stone). One On One has since logged 36 shows and counting, spanning the globe from North and South America to the UK and Europe and a current run of Japanese dates. Venues have ranged from packed stadiums and arenas to one of the most intimate gigs of Paul’s solo career to date at the 300-capacity Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace in tiny Pioneertown, CA. One On One’s 2016 run wrapped up with two headlining sets at the historic Desert Trip festival in Indio, CA, which featured surprise guest appearances from Neil Young and Rihanna—a fitting coda to a tour that featured Paul joined on encores by the likes of Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic in Seattle, Jimmy Fallon in Vancouver, and both Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead and New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski at a record-breaking show at Boston’s Fenway Park.

The Paul McCartney live experience is everything any music lover could ever want from a rock show—and so much more: Nearly three hours worth of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music, dozens of songs that have formed the soundtracks of our lives. Paul and his band have played an unparalleled range of venues and locations: outside the Coliseum in Rome, Moscow’s Red Square, Buckingham Palace, The White House, a free show in Mexico for over 400,000 people, the last ever show at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park where The Beatles played their final concert 1966, and even one performance broadcast live into Space! Featuring Paul’s band of the last 10+ years – Paul “Wix” Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson(guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums) – the show is never anything short of life-changing.

As with every Paul McCartney tour, One On One features dozens of classics from the most beloved catalog in popular music, spanning Paul’s entire career–as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course as a Beatle—and no shortage of surprises. State of the art audio and video technology ensure an unforgettable experience from every seat in the house: Massive screens, lasers, fireworks and, of course, a staggering selection of the best songs ever written or performed make every Paul McCartney show a once in a lifetime event that transcends and elevates the potential of live music.

The first public on sale of this run will be April 29th for the July 25th Tinley Park, IL date.

Tickets for the July 1st-23rd and October 1st dates will be on sale to the public May 1st.

Public on sale for the September dates will start May 5th.

American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Wednesday, April 26th at 10am local time through Sunday, April 30th at 10pm local time for Bossier City, LA, Wichita, KS, Des Moines, IA, Omaha, NE, Syracuse, NY, Detroit, MI, Miami, FL, Tampa, FL, and Duluth, GA and beginning Monday, May 1st at 10am local time through Thursday, May 4th at 10pm local time for New York, NY, Brooklyn, NY, Uniondale, NY, and Newark, NJ.

Following on his historic reunion with the classic Misfits lineup attended by record numbers at last year’s Riot Fest in Denver and Chicago, Danzig recently announced 2017’s Blackest of the Black Festival: Two days of non-stop music and mayhem taking place at Oak Canyon Park in Silverado, CA on May 26th and 27th. Danzig will close the festivities May 27th, headlining a bill featuring more than 20 artists playing amidst a full scale takeover and transformation of the park grounds featuring literally dozens of attractions, vendors, performers, and other surprises musical and otherwise.

BLACK LADEN CROWN physical formats will be available for sale on site at Blackest Of The Black.

Blackest Of The Black promises to create a site-wide atmosphere like no festival before or since. A full rundown of performers and attractions will be announced shortly. Check www.BlackestFest.com for tickets, news, and further details as they are confirmed.

Additionally, this summer marks the 25th Anniversary of  the classic DANZIG III: HOW THE GODS KILL. Produced by Danzig himself and featuring the unforgettable cover adorned by H.R. Giger’s Meister und Margeritha (The Master and Margarita), HOW THE GODS KILL was the first DANZIG album to crack Billboard’s Top 30 and inspired Rolling Stone to rave in its review at the time, “Rock is alarmingly short of visionaries these days; Danzig is the genuine article.”

Danzig will be performing a limited number of shows this summer, commemorating the occasion with live performances of numerous songs from HOW THE GODS KILL.

THE SHINS with very special guest SPOON
Together for Four Nights Only
Tickets On Sale Friday, April 14 at 10am Local Time

Hot off the back to back release of two of the most acclaimed albums of the year—The Shins’ Heartworms (Aural Apothecary/Columbia Records) and Spoon’s Hot Thoughts (Matador)—two pioneering acts whose singular styles defined the sounds of the early aughts and mid-90s respectively will join forces for four once-in-a-lifetime dates.

The Shins and Spoon bill will hit the following cities on the following dates:

Sept. 30
 – Berkeley CA – Greek Theater
Oct. 1 – San Diego CA – Cal Coast Credit Union (OAT)
Oct. 3 – Phoenix AZ – Comerica Theater

Oct. 5 – Denver CO – Red Rocks Amphitheater

 

Tickets will be on sale to the public beginning Friday, April 14 at 10am local time.

 

Produced by James Mercer, The Shins’ fifth album, Heartworms, was released March 10 to a wave of critical acclaim: Entertainment Weekly called Heartworms the “band’s boldest album yet” and “a rewarding and singular addition to the Shins’ catalog,” Rolling Stone lauded its “home-brewed feel, heavy on Beach Boys grandeur, New Wave kicks, squiggly synth-pop and warm-weather soft rock – with lyrics tenderly balanced between midlife malaise and youthful romanticism. The result is some of the most charming music he’s ever made,” while Time magazine opined “Heartworms works on a grander scale, with ornate sonic tableaux.” Mercer and crew celebrated the release of Heartworms by launching a competition to win the band’s original touring vehicle, the same sweet 1990 Ford 350 Clubwagon in which they gave Stephen Colbert a ride during their week of release Late Show appearance.  To date, 100+ aspiring artists have entered #ShinsVanContest, each submitting a cover version of one of Heartworms’ instant classics. To enter, visit theshins.com/van and submit a video of you or your band covering a track from Heartworms using the hashtag #ShinsVanContest.
Spoon’s ninth album and fourth in a row to crack the U.S. Top 10, Hot Thoughts, landed the following week to yet another cavalcade of critical ecstasy: Rolling Stone awarding it a 4-star rating, New York magazine hailing Spoon as “incapable of releasing a bad record” and Entertainment Weekly agreeing the band “couldn’t make a bad record if they tried,” while The Ringer cited “a case to be made for Spoon being the greatest rock band of the 21st century.”  Spoon commemorated Hot Thoughts’ release week with a trio of shows in their hometown of Austin TX that were the talk of this year’s SXSW festival. The band managed to sneak a film crew past the fire marshalls fighting back the droves at the jam packed SXSW gigs, and the resultant video for the album’s “fascinating” (Stereogum) “scorcher” (Vulture) of a title track captures Spoon in all its raw power and glory. See the “Hot Thoughts” video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrLVAQYfeZ4&feature=youtu.be. These four shows with The Shins are sure to be highlights of an ongoing world tour taking Hot Thoughts‘ “after-dark explorations undertaken in thrilling ways” (Time Magazine) to all corners of the globe, as the new album has achieved the highest chart positions of the band’s 20+ year career in the United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Portugal, Austria and Switzerland.

VIDEO AVAILABLE NOW

in • ter a • li • a OUT MAY 5th ON RISE RECORDS

“a punk-hardcore whirlwind of frantic virtuosity, torrential verbiage and barely sublimated fury…with whipsawing momentum: wild, precise, aggressive and smart.”—NEW YORK TIMES

“It was a celebration… to see At the Drive In is to watch Bixler hold court… a true showman”—VULTURE

“half-concert, half-religious experience”—AUSTIN360

“brilliant… fans roared with delight.”—AUSTIN CHRONICLE

“a SXSW phenomenon…we were privileged to see it all unfold.”—HOUSTON PRESS

“high-octane punk dominance”—GOTHAMIST

“the wait has certainly been worth it… they’re finally back to form, sweating it out on the stage like the… legends they are”—CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

Fresh off a triumphant handful of US dates—including a surprise pop-up performance that was the talk of SXSW and a run of make-up dates including the euphoric sweat drenched NYC frenzy described above, At The Drive In has unleashed “Hostage Stamps,” the third single from the highly anticipated new album in • ter a • li • a, out May 5th on Rise Records. Listen now: iTunes / Spotify

Cedric Bixler-Zavala describes the song as “like walking through the hallway in some war-torn ghetto and reading the writing on the wall. When you hear things like, ‘Raise your nithing pole,’ I don’t think anyone will know what that is right away, but when you look it up, it’s this curse. We are going to be victorious. Here’s the fucking head on the stake in front of our army. We’re coming back. It’s reading the writing on the wall. It’s going and keeping your ear to the ground and listening to the heartbeat of young people.”

Expanding on that theme, the band has unveiled an ominous new video directed by Rob Shaw and Damon Locks (who also designed the characters and set) to accompany the single’s release. Using a mix of stop-motion as well as digital animation, the video depicts faceless militaristic figures holding a man captive, as billboards bearing ominous messages flash in and out of view. The final scene is an eruption of chaos as the prisoner sets off an explosion. Watch here: https://youtu.be/JoNJ6AQhmFY

One More Time Feeling, the feature film about the making of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ acclaimed album Skeleton Tree, is released today on DVD and 2D and 3D Blu-ray.

A new excerpt from One More Time With Feeling has been made available.

View Steve McQueen here: http://smarturl.it/OMTWFSteveMcQueen

Directed by Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford), One More Time With Feeling is a stark, fragile and raw documentary. Shot in 3D, colour and black & white, this visually unique film probes the deeply personal circumstances surrounding the making of Skeleton Tree (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ 16th studio album) and features live-in-studio performances by the band.

Originally conceived as a one-night-only screening event in 950 cinemas (across 30 countries simultaneously) on 8th September last year, this extraordinary film has now screened over 1700 times at over 1000 cinemas world-wide, and its initial run was extended over several days as cinemas sold out around the world.

One More Time With Feeling is the first ever non-animated B&W film shot in 3D. On 31st March 2017, this filmic milestone will be released on DVD, Blu-ray and a Limited Edition 3D Blu-ray. All formats of One More Time With Feeling come as two-disc editions, with additional previously unseen footage.

Skeleton Tree, the 16th studio album by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, was released on 9th September 2016, the day after the global premiere of One More Time With Feeling. Skeleton Tree charted at number 1 in 8 countries, has been certified Silver in the UK (BPI), and, according to Metacritic, was the best-reviewed album of 2016.

Recently nominated for a 2017 BRIT Award, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds remain one of the most critically extolled acts working today and have sold over 5 million albums worldwide. Their influence has been profound and far-reaching and they are one of the most powerful and exciting live acts in the world.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ eight piece touring line up features Nick Cave, Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey, Thomas Wydler, Jim Sclavunos, Conway Savage, George Vjestica and Larry Mullins.

HOT THOUGHTS ENTERS THE U.S. ALBUMS CHART AT #9

HITS CAREER HIGH CHART POSITIONS IN EIGHT COUNTRIES

WORLD TOUR RESUMES APRIL 27

“These are after-dark explorations undertaken in thrilling ways”—TIME

“Hot Thoughts swings, in the raw guitar-centric tradition of the Rolling Stones. A carefully sequenced descent into a subterranean disco populated by ghosts and phantoms.” – THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE

“All strut and energy, and the effect is magnetic”—BUST

Spoon album number nine has entered the U.S. album chart at… number nine.

Released March 17 on Matador Records, Hot Thoughts continues the streak of top 10 charting Spoon records that began in 2007 with Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga and has continued through Transference (2010) and They Want My Soul (2014) up to the present.

In other Spoon news, Hot Thoughts’ international reception marks the highest chart positions of the band’s 20+ year career in the United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Portugal, Austria and Switzerland.

Following on Spoon’s ecstatically received hometown three-fer at this year’s SXSW and a subsequent Australian jaunt, the band will resume the Hot Thoughts world tour April 27 in Mobile, AL.

BLACK LADEN CROWN

FIRST ALBUM OF ALL NEW MATERIAL IN 7 YEARS

OUT MID-MAY ON EVILIVE RECORDS/NUCLEAR BLAST ENTERTAINMENT

Blackest Of The Black Festival Headline Appearance May 27th

Following on his historic reunion with the classic Misfits lineup attended by record numbers at last year’s Riot Fest in Denver and Chicago as well as the recent confirmation of a headlining set at this year’s Blackest Of The Black festival… Glenn Danzig has now confirmed the title and release date of first Danzig album of all new material since 2010’s widely acclaimed DETH RED SABAOTH:

BLACK LADEN CROWN, 50 minutes of long awaited brand new Danzig music, will be released mid-May on Evilive Records /Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

The details of BLACK LADEN CROWN follow on the announcement of Danzig’s Blackest of the Black Festival:  Two days of non-stop music and mayhem taking place at Oak Canyon Park in Silverado, CA on May 26th and 27th. Danzig will close the festivities May 27th, headlining a bill featuring more than 20 artists playing amidst a full scale takeover and transformation of the park grounds featuring literally dozens of attractions, vendors, performers, and other surprises musical and otherwise. 

Blackest Of The Black promises to create a site-wide atmosphere like no festival before or since. A full rundown of performers and attractions will be announced shortly. Check www.BlackestFest.com for tickets, news, and further details as they are confirmed.

Giger’s Meister und Margeritha (The Master and Margarita), HOW THE GODS KILL was the first DANZIG album to crack Billboard’s Top 30 and inspired Rolling Stone to rave in its review at the time, Rock is alarmingly short of visionaries these days; Danzig is the genuine article.” 

Danzig will be performing a limited number of shows this summer, commemorating the occasion with live performances of numerous songs from HOW THE GODS KILL.

Second Beacon Theater Show Confirmed for May 2nd

May 6th at Tower Theater in Philadelphia Added
HI RES © “Do You Still Love Me” Still

His Apollo Theater show on the February 17 release date of his new Prisoner (PAX AM/Blue Note) was one of the hottest tickets in recent NYC memory. His May 3rd Beacon Theater Prisoner Tour date has sold out. The Manhattan media has heaped accolades on Prisoner, not least of which NEW YORK Magazine hailing the new LP as “genius… the best thing he’s put out in a decade”…

… And now, due to overwhelming demand, Ryan and his band will add a second show at New York’s Beacon Theater on May 2nd.

And with demand for more dates on the Prisoner tour escalating everywhere, a May 6th show at Philadelphia has been added to the itinerary.

Presales for the newly added Prisoner tour dates begin March 15th at 10am ET, with tickets going on sale to the general public March 17th at 11am ET.

Ryan Adams’ Prisoner debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top Album chart, #1 on the Billboard Rock Albums chart and #8 on the Top-200. The album continues to generate some of the best critical notices of the multiple-Grammy-nominated Adams’ storied career, while the additional NYC date is one of several new shows added to the Prisoner Tour to accommodate demand.

Meanwhile, reviews of the tour’s first few stops in the southern U.S. are already echoing the raves that heralded Prisoner’s release:

“Adams’ set was among one of the best sounding the National has hosted in recent years…  Richmond seemed energized for a second evening with Adams.”—RVA Magazine

“Adams performed 26 songs in a set that stretched past two hours, with no intermission, no encore and no lack of intensity… his strongest statement of resistance and resolve. That the audience sang along with, and not over, Adams… proved just how far he and his fans have come.”—SOUTH FLORIDA.com

FLOWERS IN THE DIRT—THE CASSETTE DEMOS WITH ELVIS COSTELLO

RECORD STORE DAY EXCLUSIVE 3-TRACK CASSETTE-ONLY RELEASE

With the Flowers In The Dirt Archive Collection edition’s March 24th release date via  MPL/Capitol/UMe fast approaching, Paul McCartney has confirmed a very special Record Store Day exclusive.

To commemorate Record Store Day this April 22nd, a limited edition three-song cassette of Paul and Elvis Costello’s Flowers In The Dirt demos will be made available at participating RSD stores.

The limited edition cassette-only release will be the first time these recordings–I Don’t Want To Confess, Shallow Grave and Mistress And Maid—will be made available in the same form as when Paul and Elvis first cut them directly to tape.

Speaking about these tracks Paul said:  “The demos are red hot off the skillet and that’s why we wanted to include them on this boxed set. What’s great about these songs is that they’ve just been written. So there’s nothing more hot off the skillet as I say. So that was the kind of great instant thing about them.  I hadn’t listened to them in ages but when I did I knew we had to put them out. We made a little tape of them and sent them to Elvis, who loved them too. We said we should put out an EP or something and now the moment’s finally arrived.”

For a sneak peek at the cassette demo experience, go here.

The demos will be made available digitally only as part of the Deluxe Edition when Flowers In The Dirt is released as the 10th installment in the multiple-GRAMMY-winning Paul McCartney Archive Collection.

The Paul McCartney Archive Collection release of Flowers In The Dirt was, as always, personally curated and overseen by Paul himself.

THE SHINS

PRESENT

“NAME FOR YOU”

(FLIPPED)

ALTERNATE  VERSIONS OF THE SONG “NAME FOR YOU” WITH TWO DIFFERENT VIDEOS NOW LIVE

 ADDITIONAL TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED

 APPEARING ON THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT ON MARCH 13th

HEARTWORMS OUT TODAY ON AURAL APOTHECARY/COLUMBIA RECORDS

© Marisa Kula

In celebration of the release of their fifth album Heartworms – out today via Aural Apothecary/Columbia Records – The Shins have released not one but TWO videos for the “joyfully infectious” (NPR) single “Name For You”, with one featuring an alternate version of the song.

What began as an exercise in songwriting transformed into a commentary on what it means to be a songwriter. After writing the first track for Heartworms, James Mercer decided to recreate the song from scratch. Driven by its malleability, its ability to be foundationally identical, yet aesthetically and sonically utterly new, Mercer continued experimenting with each subsequent track until he had two complete albums: one original and one “flipped”.

Mercer’s ability to create two totally divergent albums from the same underlying compositions not only highlights his immense capability as a songwriter, but also functions as a reminder of what it means to be an artist, how an artist acts as both the master and facilitator of his artistic product.

Our first taste of these parallel reality albums comes in the form of two videos based on first single “Name For You”.

The first video, which accompanies the album version of the song, follows a day in the life of prominent skateboarders Savannah Headden and Samarria Brevard (acclaimed X Games veterans). Directed by The Shins’ drummer Jon Sortland, this lo-fi version set in Southern California is embellished with bursts of Dillon Moore’s cartoonish animations. Watch the video at http://smarturl.it/NFYofficial.

The second video is paired with the alternate version of “Name For You”, which Mercer re-composed as a borderline sinister new-wave track. Directed by Zaiba Jabbar and co-directed by Jon Sortland and Mark Watrous, this neo-noir version stars trans-icon and actress in Amazon’s hit series Transparent Trace Lysette, and accentuates the non-binary nature of gender. Watch the video at http://smarturl.it/NFYflipped.

In the same way that each version of the song serves to redefine its underlying composition, their corresponding videos serve as a reflection of the tonality of each song as they work to frame and redefine womanhood.

Fans can go to theshins.com/nameforyouvideo to see both videos in real time as they play simultaneously: simply move the switch to the left or right to go from watching the video with the album version of the song to the alternate video with the “flipped” version of “Name For You”. The “flipped” version of “Name For You” is also available to stream or download at http://smarturl.it/NFYouFlipped.  

Following a jam-packed release week, The Shins will be stopping by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert for a special appearance on March 13th. Tune in at 11:35pm EST.

The band has also added more shows to their tour in support of Heartworms with new dates added for Memphis, Las Vegas, Pittsburg, Boston and more.

Lovely Creatures

The Best of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds 1984 – 2014

Out 5th May 2017

© Sam Barker

“There are some people out there who just don’t know where to start with The Bad Seeds. Others know the catalogue better than I do! This release is designed to be a way into three decades of music making. That’s a lot of songs. The songs we have chosen are the ones that have stuck around, for whatever reason. Some songs are those that demand to be played live. Others are lesser songs that are personal favourites of ours. Others are just too big and have too much history to leave out. And there are those that didn’t make it, poor things. They are the ones you must discover by yourselves.” Nick Cave

Lovely Creatures is the most comprehensive overview of the recorded work of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds to date. Spanning thirty years of music from their debut album From Her To Eternity through to Push The Sky Away their 15th studio album, the collection navigates one of the most exhilarating, idiosyncratic and inventive bodies of work created in contemporary music.

Included are long-standing live favourites “Stagger Lee” and “The Mercy Seat”, their hit single from 1995 “Where The Wild Roses Grow” through to recent fan favourites “Jubilee Street” and “We No Who U R. There are songs that newcomers may only know from their appearance on film and television soundtracks, notably “O Children” (Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Pt. I)  and the ubiquitous “Red Right Hand”, most recently familiar to fans of the series Peaky Blinders.

The album was compiled by Nick Cave and founding member Mick Harvey, with help from the current Bad Seeds. Band members past and present raided their personal archives to provide previously unseen photos and memorabilia which have been collected into a beautiful hardcover book, along with a series of original essays. The book is available as part of the limited edition ‘Super Deluxe’ album collection that also comes with a two hour DVD containing rare and unseen archive footage. Lovely Creatures is available in four formats, all featuring personal and rare photographs of the band:  Standard CD, Triple LP, Deluxe 3CD with DVD and the Super Deluxe Limited Edition package.

Lovely Creatures was originally intended for release in 2014. Since its postponement the band have recorded and released their highly acclaimed 16th studio album Skeleton Tree.

HEARTWORMS OUT MARCH 10th ON AURAL APOTHECARY/COLUMBIA RECORDS

Heartworms Cover

After generating yet another wave of critical acclaim with the release of “instant classic” (ELLE) “slice of warm and wistful folk-pop” (PASTE) third single “Mildenhall”, The Shins have unleashed a fourth advance track from Heartworms: “Painting A Hole”. Textured with spiraling vocals and a body-swaying rhythm, “Painting A Hole” employs James Mercer’s singular lyrical voice to examine the way our society perpetuates beliefs that rarely reflect our everyday reality (“You’re painting a hole/Can you crawl up inside it?”).

James on the message behind the song:

“People create beliefs or inherit them and those beliefs very rarely reflect the reality we live in every day. Like a coyote in a cartoon, painting a hole in the side of a cliff then falling through it, I think these belief systems are just about as ridiculous as that.”

“Painting A Hole” is available as an instant grat, but head over to http://smarturl.it/Heartworms to stream it now.

In addition to the dates already announced in support of Heartworms, The Shins have confirmed three exclusive, intimate shows to celebrate the album’s release: March 10th (release day) at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, March 14th at Bowery Ballroom in New York and March 15th at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn.

Fans will have an opportunity to get their tickets to these performances by entering a special lottery—details will be emailed to those who have signed up via www.facebook.com/theshins. Randomly selected entrants will receive a unique code allowing them to purchase two tickets on March 7th at 12pm local time.

Don’t forget—Soundcheck Party tickets are available for select dates (marked below). One $125 Soundcheck Party ticket includes: admission to an exclusive soundcheck performance, individual photo with the band, a limited edition exclusive Shins poster signed by James Mercer, a canvas Shins tote bag, and early entry into the venue. Tickets to the show are NOT included.

Friday March 3 – With less than a month to go until the release of the reissue of Paul McCartney’s classic album Flowers In The Dirt (the 10th installment of the Grammy-winning Paul McCartney Archive Collection) – Paul has released some photographs taken from the video shoots for the song ‘This One’.

In 1989 Paul shot two videos for the song, taken from the album ‘Flowers In The Dirt’.

The first, directed by Tim Pope, was filmed in June (1989) at the Albert Wharf Studio in Battersea, London.  Referred to as the ‘Eastern’ promo the video featured scenes with meditation and as well as featuring Paul, Linda and the band the promo includes Indian dancers. Photographer Eugene Adebari was on set to capture still photographs on the day.

The second video was directed by ‘light painting’ photographer Dean Chamberlain and was filmed in a rehearsal barn in the South-East of England in July (1989).

Today, Paul has released a selection of images from both video shoots to coincide with the song, ‘This One’, being available as an Instant Grat track for people who have digitally pre-ordered ‘Flowers In The Dirt’

Those who pre-order the album digitally will also get Instant Grat tracks – previously unreleased original demo versions of My Brave Face and That Day Is Done – both recorded at one of the early writing sessions.
