PAUL MCCARTNEY’S NEW ALBUM EGYPT STATION OUT NOW 

Stream Paul’s YouTube Original concert special live from New York on his YouTube channel

In case you missed it: Paul on The Howard Stern ShowThe Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and WTF with Marc Maron 

“Macca keeps adding new gems to his songbook, with nothing to prove except he’s the only genius who can do this… (And, oh yeah — in his spare time, he happens to still be the greatest live performer on Earth.)”ROLLING STONE

“Essential… a document of McCartney’s spirit, which is still irrepressible more than five decades after the Beatles made their debut.”TIME

“A tour through the imagination of one of our greatest artists… a celebration of all the things that make McCartney great: hope, exuberance, open mindedness and sweet melody. These days, we need all of these more than ever.”PEOPLE

“The still-vital life force of a superstar who has been there and everywhere and is glad just to be here now”ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

Today, Friday September 7th, sees the release of Paul McCartney’s 17th solo album Egypt Station, which critics across the world are already hailing as a stellar addition to his peerless catalogue.

Egypt Station is the first full album of all-new McCartney music since 2013’s international chart-topping NEW. The album was recorded between Los Angeles, London and Sussex, and produced (with the exception of one Ryan Tedder track) by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Beck, Foo Fighters).

Of the album’s enigmatic title, Paul says, “I liked the words ‘Egypt Station.’ It reminded me of the ‘album’ albums we used to make… Egypt Station starts off at the station on the first song and then each song is like a different station. So it gave us some idea to base all the songs around that. I think of it as a dream location that the music emanates from.”

True to the inspiration behind its title, Egypt Station’s 14 songs combine to convey a unique travelogue vibe. Between the opening and closing instrumentals Station I and Station II, each song finds Paul capturing a place or moment before transporting the listener seamlessly to the next destination. Stops along the way include an acoustic meditation on present day contentedness (Happy With You), a timeless anthem that would fit on virtually any album of any McCartney era (People Want Peace), and an epic multi-movement closer clocking in at seven minutes with a song suite structure harkening back to the days of Paul’s previous combos (Despite Repeated Warnings). The result is a kaleidoscopic journey through myriad musical locales and eras, yet firmly rooted in the here and now–with Paul’s singular unmistakeable melodic and lyrical sensibility serving as a guide.

Paul began the journey to Egypt Station with his June appearance on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden, which has since set the record for most watched late night video on Facebook, with views of over 100 million.

The following month, July saw Paul bring traffic to a standstill in London when he crossed Abbey Road on his way into the iconic Abbey Road Studios to record a session for Spotify to be released sometime in the near future.  A few days later, his next stop was his hometown of Liverpool where he visited LIPA (Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, the site of the school Paul attended as a child) – Paul was interviewed by Jarvis Cocker of Pulp for an hour long Facebook Live chat.  And as if that wasn’t enough for one week – Paul drove fans wild when he announced a secret show the following day at The Cavern. Maccamania swept through the city as 200 lucky fans crammed into the tiny venue to watch Paul play a career spanning sets including brand new songs from Egypt Station. Global 5-star press reports described the show as a ‘once in a lifetime experience’.

New York City was the next stop en route to Egypt Station: Following appearances on The Howard Stern Show, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and WTF with Marc Maron, this week will see another once in a lifetime experience for lucky fans in the US. To celebrate the release of the album and as part of a YouTube Original special, Paul will perform an intimate concert from New York tonight, to be streamed live on his YouTube channel. For those who can’t tune in at 8:00 pm EST the show will live on Paul’s YouTube channel after the event for fans to enjoy.

…And Justice For All was originally released—despite what the internet might tell you— September 7th, 1988, on Elektra Records. Certified 8x Platinum in the United States, …And Justice For All marked a series of firsts for Metallica: The first full length Metallica recording to feature bassist Jason Newsted, the first Metallica album to crack the  U.S. Top 10 where it peaked at #6, the band’s first video and top 40 single (“One”), their debut performance on the Grammy Awards, as well as their first Grammy loss (Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance Vocal or Instrumental for …And Justice for All), and first Grammy win (Best Metal Performance for “One”). It also received more widespread critical acclaim than any of its predecessors, with Rolling Stone hailing the album as “a marvel of precisely channeled aggression,” Spin calling it “a gem of a double record,”  and ultimately placing in the Village Voice annual Pazz & Jop critics poll of the year’s best reviewed albums.

ABOUT METALLICA
Metallica was formed in 1981 by drummer Lars Ulrich and guitarist / vocalist James Hetfield and in the 37 years since, they’ve pretty much done it all. They’re even releasing their own whiskey and line ofwatches. If you need to know more, loads of facts can be found on Wikipedia… and some of them are even true.  One thing that is certain: the North American leg of their WorldWired tour resumed on September 2nd in Madison, Wisconsin, and continues through March 13, 2019 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

“Suspirium” Single Out Now—Animated Video by Ruff Mercy Live Now

Following the fleeting reveal of instrumental passages in two trailers and today’s release of the track “Suspirium,” it can be confirmed: Thom Yorke’s Suspiria (Music for the Luca Guadagnino Film) will be released October 26 on XL Recordings.

Suspiria consists of 25 original compositions written by Thom specifically for Luca Guadagnino’s reimagining of the 1977 Dario Argento horror classic. The album is a mix of instrumental score work, interstitial pieces and interludes, and more traditional song structures featuring Thom’s vocals such as “Unmade,” “Has Ended” and “Suspirium,” the album’s first single featuring the melodic theme that recurs throughout the film and its score.

As scoring a horror film presented Thom with altogether new challenges and opportunities, Suspiriastands apart from any of his other work. Piano/vocal ballads, Krautrock-esque modular synth work inspired by the film’s Berlin 1977 setting, multilayered vocals, and melodies that convey terror, longing and melancholy combine to create a chaotic yet cohesive musical spell.

Suspiria was written and arranged by Thom Yorke, recorded and produced by Thom and Sam Petts-Davies. The album also features the London Contemporary Orchestra and Choir, Noah Yorke on drums on “Has Ended” and “Volk,” and Pasha Mansurov on solo flute on “Suspirium.”

Suspiria (Music for the Luca Guadagnino Film) will be available across digital platforms, as well as 2-LP gatefold package pink vinyl and 2-CD physical versions. See below for track listings and for further information go to http://x-l-r.co/suspiria

FOO FIGHTERS RESCHEDULE TWO CANADIAN DATES DUE TO ILLNESS

Foo Fighters have had to reschedule two shows on the Canadian leg of the Concrete and Gold tour: September 4 in Edmonton at Rogers Place and September 6 in Calgary at Scotiabank Saddledome.

The new Edmonton date is now October 22 and the new Calgary date is October 23.

After opening this leg of the tour September 1 at Safeco Field in Seattle, Dave Grohl suffered a loss of voice and is now on vocal rest. “That’s the last time I ever make out with Bono,” Grohl commented.

Previously purchased tickets will be honoured for these new dates. If a refund is required, refunds are available at point of purchase until September 25.

The Concrete and Gold tour will resume September 8 in Vancouver at Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena. Foo Fighters are, as always, grateful for  understanding and support of their fans everywhere and look forward to seeing everyone in Edmonton and Calgary in October.

NEW ALBUM EGYPT STATION OUT SEPTEMBER 7th ON CAPITOL RECORDS

http://paulmccartney.com/ 

Paul McCartney has confirmed his eagerly anticipated return to the U.S. with his new Freshen Up tour. Five confirmed dates have been announced, marking Paul’s first series of Stateside concerts since the One On One Tour that played to some two million fans around the world during 2016 and 2017.

The Freshen Up tour is Paul’s first outing following the release of his brand new studio album, Egypt Station, out September 7th on Capitol Records. Featuring the AAA Top 10 single “Come On To Me,” Egypt Station is already generating rave reviews, with Q magazine writing in a 4-star review that Paul is “enjoying his music too much to stop now. And so, for that matter, are we,” and Rolling Stone raving “Macca keeps adding new gems to his songbook, with nothing to prove except he’s the only genius who can do this… And, oh yeah — in his spare time, he happens to still be the greatest live performer on Earth.” 

Paul will also be appearing on The Howard Stern Show September 5th and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon September 6th.

The U.S. leg of Freshen Up will begin with Paul rocking the Carolinas, on May 27th at the PNC Arena with Paul’s first show in Raleigh NC since 2002’s Driving World Tour and on May 30th with Paul’s debut appearance in Greenville SC at the  Bon Secours Wellness Arena. On June 1st Paul will return to the Rupp Arena in Lexington KY for the first time since 1990, while June 6th will see Paul play his first ever show in Madison WI at the Kohl Center. And on June 11th, Paul will rock the Quad Cities, visiting Moline IL for the first time to play the TaxSlayer Center.

The Paul McCartney live experience is everything any music lover could ever want from a rock show: Nearly three hours nightly of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music, dozens of songs from Paul’s solo, Wings and of course Beatles catalogues that have formed the soundtracks of our lives. Paul and his band have played an unparalleled range of venues and locations throughout the Americas, the UK, Europe, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and all points between: 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  in 1966, a 2016 week in the California desert that included two headline sets at the historic Desert Trip festival and a jam-packed club gig for a few hundred lucky fans at Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace, and even one performance broadcast live into Space! Featuring Paul’s band of the last 15+ years – Paul “Wix” Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums) –and constantly upgraded state of the art audio and video technology that ensures an unforgettable experience from every seat in the house, a Paul McCartney concert is never anything short of life-changing.

Tickets will go on sale to the public at Friday September 7th at 10am local time.

American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Tuesday, September 4 at 10am local time through Thursday, September 6 at 10pm local time.

2017 UK show reviews: 

A triumphant performance charged with tragedy” The Evening Standard * * * * * 

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds used to be a great live act. Tonight, they are phenomenal.” The Line Of Best Fit

A sense of awe rings around the O2 as the Bad Seeds leave the stage, lifetime Cave fans shocked at quite how magnificently the band have mutated.” Loud & Quiet

2017 US show reviews: 

There was murder, bloodshed, weeping and betrayal in these songs, many of which explored the tension between control and the furious abandonment of it. And yet there was hope, and an unfettered adoration and belief in the ideals of romantic love. Los Angeles Times 

It could be said that Cave himself gets right down to people’s souls—more so than any artist of recent memory. To meet a Nick Cave fan is to meet a disciple. To see a Nick Cave concert is to witness a kind of musical sacrament.” LA Record 

The pain [Nick Cave]’s voice conveys on [Skeleton Tree] is almost too much to bear, but shared with 6,000 disciples experiencing the same feelings it becomes life-affirming…His shows have become true art. And like all great art it is an experience that will transform you and stay with you for years to come.Forbes 

The people in the pit felt his breath, had their hands guided to his heart, and were often relied on to hold him from the ground. Near the stage, it was the most baroque hardcore show ever conceived. The audience was part of the show. Everything was interactive.” Consequence Of Sound

ST. VINCENT CONFIRMS OFFICIAL 2018 ACL FEST LATE NIGHT SHOW October 5 – Austin – Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater

ST. VINCENT CONFIRMS OFFICIAL 2018 ACL FEST LATE NIGHT SHOW
October 5 –  Austin – Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater

St. Vincent a/k/a Annie Clark has added an Official 2018 ACL Fest Late Night Show to her current I Am A Lot Like You! world tour. October 5 will see St. Vincent headline Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater in Austin, Texas the day before she plays her first of two Saturday sets at the Austin City Limits Festival.

The new Austin date is the latest addition to an itinerary that has seen St. Vincent’s live show dazzle crowds from Japan where she recently appeared at Summer Sonic in Tokyo and Osaka to Lollapalooza, where her main stage performance moved the Chicago Tribune to rave “Annie Clark shreds… ramped up the intensity over her last appearance in Chicago,” and the Chicago Reader to add, “St. Vincent has one of the best live shows around.”

St. Vincent is one of the most innovative and enigmatic presences in modern music. Over the course of her five albums, she has explored emotive ballads, upbeat pop arrangements and experimental spaces alike, incorporating postmodern guitar solos and electronic pulses that display a sweetly sinister sensibility. A Grammy award-winning artist who is critically acclaimed the world over, she has collaborated with artists ranging from David Byrne to LA hip-hop producer Sounwave. St. Vincent also recently released her signature Ernie Ball Music Man guitar, and made her directorial debut with a short horror film The Birthday Party. Her latest album, MASSEDUCTION, was released in late 2017 and was The Guardian’s Album of the Year, while Jon Pareles of The New York Times named it his #1 album of 2017. MASSEDUCTION has been supported by characteristically thrilling St. Vincent live shows,  as well as performances on The Graham Norton Show, Later… with Jools Holland and The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Tickets will be available HERE at 10 am CDT on Thursday, August 23, 2018.

PAUL McCARTNEY “FUH YOU” NEW SINGLE OUT NOW

PAUL McCARTNEY
“FUH YOU”
NEW SINGLE OUT NOW
EGYPT STATION OUT SEPTEMBER 7 ON CAPITOL RECORDS
Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Met McCartney Live From Liverpool 
Hour-Long Primetime Special to Air Monday, August 20 at 8pm

Paul McCartney has announced the next stop on the journey to Egypt Station: “Fuh You,” the newest single from the forthcoming record is now available on all digital/streaming platforms.

Egypt Station’s estimated time of arrival is September 7, 2018 by way of Capitol Records.

Sharing a title with one of Paul’s own paintings, Egypt Station is the first full album of all-new McCartney music since 2013’s international chart-topping NEW. Preceded by two of its tracks just released as double A-sides–plaintive ballad  “I Don’t Know” and raucous stomper  “Come On To Me”—Egypt Station was recorded between Los Angeles, London and Sussex, and produced by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Beck, Foo Fighters)—with the exception of the newly available “Fuh You,” which was produced by Ryan Tedder.

Paul recalls the process behind the new single: “With this one I was in the studio with Ryan Tedder whereas the rest of the album has been made with Greg Kurstin… We were just thinking of ideas and little pieces of melody and chords and the song just came together bit by bit. And then I would try and make some kind of sense of the story. So it was like ‘Come on baby now. Talk about yourself. Tell the truth, let me get to know you’ and basically I wanna know how you feel, you make me wanna go out and steal. I just want it for you. So that was the basic idea and it developed from there… sort of a love song, but a raunchy love song. There you go – fuh you.”

Of Egypt Station‘s enigmatic title, Paul says, “I liked the words ‘Egypt Station.’ It reminded me of the ‘album’ albums we used to make… Egypt Station starts off at the station on the first song and then each song is like a different station. So it gave us some idea to base all the songs around that. I think of it as a dream location that the music emanates from.”

The complete track listing for Egypt Station is:

  1. Opening Station
  2. I Don’t Know
  3. Come On To Me
  4. Happy With You
  5. Who Cares
  6. Fuh You
  7. Confidante
  8. People Want Peace
  9. Hand In Hand
  10. Dominoes
  11. Back In Brazil
  12. Do It Now
  13. Caesar Rock
  14. Despite Repeated Warnings
  15. Station II
  16. Hunt You Down/Naked/C-Link

And don’t forget to tune in to CBS 8pm Monday, August 20 for Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Met McCartney Live From Liverpool. The hour-long primetime special will feature never-before-seen footage from the wildly popular “Paul McCartney Carpool Karaoke” segment which aired on The Late Late Show with James Corden on June 21, 2018, and has since been viewed nearly 130 million times across Facebook and YouTube.

TOMORROW’S MODERN BOXES U.S. TOUR 2018

Thom Yorke has confirmed a series of live electronic performances in the U.S. during which he, Nigel Godrich and visual artist Tarik Barri will perform songs spanning his solo works The Eraser and Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes and Atoms For Peace’s Amok. Support will come from special guest Oliver Coates.

Following the September 2014 release of Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, Yorke, Godrich and Barri embarked on their first tour, covering the UK, Europe and Japan throughout 2015.

This combination of Thom and Nigel’s sounds and Tarik Barri’s stunning visuals has generated praise the world over, with Uproxx raving  “Youtube clips of the performance can’t do justice to just how breathtaking and engrossing it all was…. Yorke’s commitment to his solo material might be exactly what he wanted, allowing him to blow audiences away with a fully-realized, immersive, and often breathtaking show,” and Variety commenting “One of the show’s many highlights was visual collaborator Tarik Barri’s gorgeous visuals that accompanied Yorke and Godrich’s heady sounds.”

Tickets will go on general sale from Friday 17th August at 10am EST/7am PCT/3pm UK time onwards, please check the schedule page for each venue’s details.
