Everything Now is proud to present a more in depth advance look at “Money + Love,” a double video directed by David Wilson, written by David Wilson and Arcade Fire, and starring Arcade Fire and Toni Collette.

“Money + Love” will be released March 15. The new teaser is now live at

“Money + Love” opens in the aftermath of Arcade Fire’s 360-degree deal with global media and e-commerce platform Everything Now, and features a narrative that unfolds over the course of full performances of “Put Your Money on Me” and “We Don’t Deserve Love” from the GRAMMY-nominated global #1 album Everything Now (Sonovox/Columbia).

Win Butler commented on the ambitious scope of the two-song short film, “The concept of a double video really appealed to us, we’d always loved songs being put together as A and B sides… and these songs seemed perfect together. David has been a great collaborator for us since Reflektor and we were finally able to work with Toni whom we’d been wanting to work with for some time”.

Director/co-writer David Wilson added, “The ambition and scale of the piece was huge from the outset. I adore working with Arcade Fire – reacting to their vision and scale is a beautiful thing to creatively respond to. The belief and trust in me from the band made this one of the best experiences of my career. It’s an as-close-to-perfect collaboration that I can think of with me and Win hitting emails backwards and forwards continually over the formation of the script. The connection, communication and enthusiasm from the band on the multiple shoot days led to an extremely tight bond. I’m super excited for this to be out in the world.”

Toni Collette said of her role, “Arcade Fire is on of my all time favorite bands. I was blown away when they asked me to be part of their video. It was a total pleasure acting with them and an even greater pleasure getting to know them. They continue to inspire and I continue to admire. I mean, who gets to do that? I am so lucky!”

Having closed out 2017 with a triumphant run through Latin America, Arcade Fire resumes its Infinite Content Tour on March 1, when the band headlines the Okeechobee Festival in Okeechobee, Florida. The Infinite Content Tour will see Arcade Fire headlining sold out dates across the UK and Europe from April 6at the 3Arena in Dublin through June 18 at the Stadthalle in Vienna. Following that, Arcade Fire will return to the States for a trio of festival headlines: Summerfest’s July 8closer (the band’s  first Milwaukee appearance in 14 years), July 14 at Sloss Music & Arts Festival in Birmingham AL, and July 15 at Forecastle in Louisville KY.

Participation in Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney’s campaign has shot up since the launch of their documentary short ‘One Day a Week’ 

Support for Meat Free Monday has noticeably increased since the launch of ‘One Day a Week’ in November 2017, ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference.

In addition to many individuals, new supporters include universities (UEA, Ulster), businesses (Universal Music UK, Abbey Road Studios) and schools (Trafford Council, Edinburgh City Council). ‘edie’ also went meat free for its annual Sustainability Leaders Forum in January, and a number of cafes and restaurants in Primrose Hill are supporting the campaign this month. The film was promoted by a range of high profile personalities including Ellen DeGeneres, Mike Bloomberg, Richard Branson, Vivienne Westwood, Chris Packham, Ricky Gervais, Gary Barlow, Leona Lewis and The Killers.

Narrated by Paul McCartney, and with appearances by Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney, Woody Harrelson and Emma Stone, ‘One Day a Week’ describes how the beauty of the planet only exists through a delicate balance of climatic conditions – a balance we are dangerously disrupting through our overconsumption of animal products.

In an interview about the film with National Geographic, Paul McCartney said: “It’s actually quite fun when you look at what you do, what you eat, how you live and think, ‘Is this what I’m going to do the rest of my life, or would it be interesting to try to make a change?’ I think a lot of people do that these days.”

Meat Free Monday’s aim is to raise awareness and inspire people to make a change in their diets from an easily achievable starting point. And, with increasing plant-based options available in shops and restaurants, it’s easier than ever to take part. According to recent findings by Kantar Worldpanel, 29% of all dinners eaten across the UK in the 12 weeks leading to January 31 2018 were vegetarian or vegan.

“The truth is there are a lot of options these days that you can use – it’s really not difficult,” said Paul. “So what we’re doing with Meat Free Monday is urging people to just try it one day, because it will make some kind of a difference, if enough people do it or if the idea spreads. It is a growing movement.”

About the campaign
Launched by Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney in 2009, Meat Free Monday is a not-for-profit
campaign which aims to raise awareness of the damaging environmental impact of eating meat,
and to encourage people to help slow climate change, conserve precious natural resources and
improve their health by having at least one meat free day each week.

About the film
One Day a Week was largely funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies, and produced by Hope Production in collaboration with Meat Free Monday. The film was directed by Baptiste Rouget-Luchaire, whose work includes ‘7 Billion Others’ (a worldwide project by Yann Arthus-Bertrand) and ‘A Thirsty World’, a film about global water issues.

U2 Perform at the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards

U2 Perform at the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards 

“Blessed are the Shithole Countries, for they gave us the American Dream”
 Bono during U2’s GRAMMY performance

New York, NY — 46-time GRAMMY nominees and 22-time winners—the most of any rock band—U2 performed this evening at the 60th Annual GRAMMY awards.

Bono and The Edge of U2 began music’s biggest night alongside 2018 Album of the Year nominee Kendrick Lamar, contributing guitar and vocals to “XXX” from Lamar’s DAMN, which garnered seven nominations and five wins this year.

Bono and The Edge were later joined by Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen for a visually stunning performance of “Get Out Of Your Own fun Way” staged on a barge in New York Harbor under the gaze of the Statue of Liberty.

“Get Out Of Your Own Way” features lyrics written by Bono for his daughters and has since been adopted by many as a human rights anthem. Tonight the song found new resonance played under the watchful eyes of Omaima, the teenaged Syrian refugee who graced U2’s stage on the Joshua Tree 2017 tour as part of a powerful film created by the artist JR.

U2 were introduced by Latin GRAMMY award winner Camila Cabello, who reminded us that America is a country Built by Dreamers, for Dreamers, chasing the American Dream, by reciting the “lines of world-wide welcome” from Emma Lazarus’ The New Colossus.

Watch the whole performance here.

Finally the singer and guitarist of the only group to win Album of the Year twice—in 1988 for The Joshua Tree and in 2006 for How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb—Bono and The Edge were proud to present the award for Album of the Year to winner Bruno Mars.

“Run,” the summer 2017 smash first single from Foo Fighters’ international #1 album Concrete and Gold (Roswell Records/RCA Records) took home the statue for Best Rock Song at the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards in New York City.

The Best Rock Song win for “Run” brings Foo Fighters’ career GRAMMY total to an even dozen. The Best Rock Song victory for “Run”  is the band’s second in the category, following “Walk” taking the honor at the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards.

The opening salvo from Concrete and Gold, “Run” was released without warning June 1, 2017. Receiving more than 2 million YouTube views in its first 24 hours, and smashing into the top 5 of the iTunes video chart and the top 15 of the iTunes singles chart, “Run” instantly amassed the highest first-day numbers of any Foo Fighters single. The Billboard Mainstream Rock #1 track has quickly become a live favorite as well, sparking monster singalongs as Foo Fighters Concrete and Gold stadium/arena tour continues to sell out and add dates worldwide.



“tonite” Wins for Best Dance Recording

LCD Soundsystem has won the first of two categories in which it was nominated at the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards in New York City.

“tonite” from the band’s American Dream (Columbia Records/DFA) album took home the GRAMMY for Best Dance Recording.

American Dream (Columbia Records/DFA) is also nominated for Best Alternative Music Album.

The win for “tonite” is LCD Soundsystem’s first out of a total of five nominations over the course of the band’s career.

LCD Soundsystem’s fourth album, American Dream, was released September 1, 2017. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and ended the year with Best of 2017 accolades from the likes of ROLLING STONE, TIME, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, STEREOGUM, BILLBOARD, the AV CLUB, NEWSWEEK, PASTE, PITCHFORK, CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND and many more.

The first U.S. leg of the Concrete and Gold Tour wound down 2017 by storming through sold out arenas in Richmond, Greensboro, Cincinnati, Sioux Falls and more, with Foo Fighters consistently reaching new peaks of their estimable powers: The Herald Whig in Champaign IL raved “the energy didn’t slow down at all during the near-three-hour set… If you get the chance, make sure you don’t miss out. You won’t regret it,” and the Argus Leader called the Foos’ first Sioux Falls appearance in decades “musical genius,” reporting that the band “blew away the crowd… pulling off a performance no one in the audience will forget… delivered the classic rock concert their fans know and love.”

U2: Broken Fingaz Crew Create Ominous Animated Video for “Get Out Of Your Own Way”

Broken Fingaz Crew Create Ominous Animated Video for U2’s “Get Out Of Your Own Way”

Broken Fingaz Crew, the fearless Israeli graffiti collective whose provocative, groundbreaking and often disturbing fluorescent sketches were among the first street art in their native Haifa, have directed U2’s new video for “Get Out Of Your Own Way.” Broken Fingaz Crew’s animated realization of the song can be viewed here.

Known only by the pseudonyms that preserve their anonymity with local authorities–Unga, Tant, Kip and Desco—the enigmatic Broken Fingaz Crew approached U2 with the concept of an animated visualization of the second single from the band’s new Songs of Experience. After a successful collaboration on U2’s video for “American Soul,” the band were inspired to give Broken Fingaz Crew full creative control based on their impassioned interpretation of “Get Out Of Your Own Way.” The result reaffirms Broken Fingaz Crew’s standing as artistic and social pioneers emerging from an underground of their own creation.

Broken Fingaz Crew described the mission statement of their  “Get Out Of Your Own Way” video as follows:

“The video addresses the current political situation: 2017 for us was the year fascists worldwide felt confident enough to raise their heads again, encouraged by Trump and other world leaders, who use people’s fear to build more walls and segregation.

The song is both a personal letter and a clarion cry to the global situation, and in the same way, we’ve combined our psychedelic pop style with political imagery; shot entirely analogue, using paper cut and stop motion animation techniques in collaboration with Adam Albo, who edited the video.”
