BECK

“COLORS”

DIRECTED BY EDGAR WRIGHT

AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY ON APPLE MUSIC

PREVIEW NOW: https://youtu.be/JQKZGziMOoI

All the Colors. See the Colors. Feel the Colors… on a kaleidoscopic audiovisual voyage with Beck as your guide. Available exclusively at apple.co/ColorsMusicVideo, “Colors” is the dazzling new video directed by Edgar Wright (Baby Driver, The Cornetto Trilogy, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World), that brings the title track of Beck’s current album to vivid multi-hued life, aided and abetted by kinetic choreography by Ryan Heffington. Beck and Wright’s collaboration on the “Colors” video has resulted in something completely alien yet strangely familiar, as if an extraterrestrial culture had accidentally intercepted a transmission of a Busby Berkeley film—and chosen to create their own sequel.

Apple Music is home to the best music video-watching experience available anywhere — all ad-free. Starting right now, fans can enjoy “Colors” and other amazing Beck music videos on Apple Music at http://applemusic.com/musicvideos.

“Colors” is both the namesake and mission statement of Beck’s 13th album (and sixth to crack the U.S. Top 10), released October 13, 2017 by Capitol Records (and streamed 212 million times since). Following up 2015 GRAMMY Album of the Year winner Morning Phase and featuring “Dreams,” “Wow,” “Dear Life” and “Up All Night” (Beck’s third Billboard Alternative #1), Colors has been hailed as “yet another milestone” (WALL STREET JOURNAL),  “a euphoric blast” (USA TODAY) and a  “classic, sneakily inventive, massively catchy” (AV CLUB) album  “that proves that Beck is still one of rock’s most intrepid inventors” (ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY).

“Colors” is directed by Edgar Wright and choreographed by Ryan Heffington. The video was produced by Bridgitte Pugh and executive produced by Nina Soriano for Anonymous Content.

PAUL McCARTNEY 2018 CATALOGUE REISSUES OUT MAY 18

PAUL McCARTNEY 2018 CATALOGUE REISSUES OUT MAY 18 VIA MPL/Capitol

NEW

Chaos And Creation In The Backyard

Wings Greatest

Thrillington

FEATURING LIMITED EDITION 180g COLOR VINYL PRESSINGS

On May 18, Paul McCartney will release four 2018 edition catalogue reissues via MPL/Capitol: NEWChaos And Creation In The BackyardWings Greatest and Thrillington. All four titles will be issued in affordable single CD digipak and 180gram black vinyl single LP formats—and will be made available for the first time in limited edition 180gram color vinyl pressings. All vinyl LPs will include a download card.

Upon its release in 2013, NEW was lauded by Rolling Stone as “energized and full of joyous rock & roll invention.” Executive produced by Giles Martin and also featuring production by Mark Ronson, Ethan Johns and Paul Epworth, NEW entered the U.S. chart at #3. The album scored positive reviews from Entertainment Weekly to Pitchfork and all points in between, while the title track, “Queenie Eye” and “Save Us” would become staples of the McCartney live show over the course of the Out There and One On One world tours. NEW’s 2018 edition will feature the first vinyl pressing of the album since its 2013 release, including a limited edition pink vinyl 180gram vinyl LP with download card and 12×12” insert.

Released in 2005, Chaos And Creation In The Backyard was instantly hailed as continuing a hot streak that included Flaming Pie, Run Devil Run and Driving Rain. Produced by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Beck) and featuring the singles “Fine Line” and the Grammy-winning “Jenny Wren,” Chaos And Creation… debuted at #6 on the Billboard chart. It remained on the charts for nearly half a year, while Paul mounted the massive ‘US’ Tour. In 2007, “Jenny Wren” won the Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, while the album was nominated in three other categories including Album of the Year. The 2018 edition of Chaos And Creation… will make the album available on vinyl for the first time since its initial run and will include a limited edition gold vinyl 180gram vinyl LP with download card and 12×12” insert.

Originally released in 1978, Wings Greatest was the first ever compilation of Paul McCartney’s post-Beatles hits, featuring four classics that had previously been unavailable on any McCartney album: “Another Day,” “Junior’s Farm,” “Hi, Hi, Hi” and “Mull of Kintyre.” The penultimate Wings album release, Wings Greatest was naturally a worldwide hit, and the soundtrack to the 70s for a generation. As part of its 2018 edition reissue, Wings Greatest will be available as a limited edition blue vinyl 180gram vinyl LP with download card and 20”x30” poster.

Recorded in 1971 but not released until 1977, Thrillington remains one of the most enigmatic entries in the storied McCartney discography. Credited to the pseudonym Percy “Thrills” Thrillington, a fictitious socialite whose activities were chronicled in UK newspaper ads, Thrillington was actually a fully reimagined instrumental lounge/jazz version of Paul and Linda McCartney’s RAM. With Thrillington’s 2018 edition, Percy is given a new lease on life with this collector’s item available on vinyl for the first time since the 1977 first pressings that fetch hefty sums on the collectors’ market, plus a limited edition red/black marbled 180gram vinyl LP with download card.

GET TICKETS NOW

” A galloping assault pitched between Devo and the Buzzcocks, with theremin sounds wailing like a supercomputer meltdown in a trashy ’50s sci-fi film.”—ROLLING STONE

“Sand-kicking surf-rock…an immediate crowd-please”—STEREOGUM

Step right up and take a trip through the eerie and macabre with Queens of the Stone Age as your tour guide —in their latest video, that is. The band has unveiled the latest creation for their “mile-a-minute Cramps-style rave-up” (UPROXX) “Head Like A Haunted House,” off their Grammy-nominated seventh album Villains (Matador).

Created, directed and art direction by frequent collaborator Liam Lynch, the video is a ghastly animated carnival ride through your worst fever-induced nightmares. Accompanied by disembodied hands, UFOs, smoldering hellscapes and grooving skeletons, Joshua Homme leads the way as he and his pack of mischief-makers sail through the nighttime sky on what else but flying coffins. Step right this way, if you dare: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9byydi6cns

The 2018 Villains Tour continues to bring the heat and lay waste to capacity crowds, with the most recent round of fervent reviews clamoring for more:

“No one quite knows how to detonate a room like QotSA…Queens fuckin’ rock.” – EUGENE WEEKLY

“Potent…cage-rattling…Queens of the Stone Age proved it’s a rock ’n’ roll band that hasn’t lost its edge.”—SEATTLE TIMES

“It was a jailbreak from restraint, composure, moderation and other Friday night fun-ruiners, feet and hips emancipated first.”—LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL

“Full-tilt swagger…much has been said about how rock n’ roll is dead…but Queens of the Stone Age will still be out there roaming loud and free, feeling the strings beneath their fingers and the wind in their hair, the feedback in their ears and the sunset in their eyes.”—VEGAS SEVEN

“There was a celebratory sense in the air, as if the year were ending, or even a treasonous presidency. Then, sharp as a switchblade, the band drove through five high-energy numbers in unnervingly perfect synchronicity…a bittersweet adrenaline bath, a furious blur of intensity and then out…the tightest gang in rock.”—ANTIQUIET

After a triumphant South American jaunt with brothers in arms Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age will make their return to the US later this month with stops including Austin (Austin360 Amphitheater) and Irving (The Pavillion at the Irving Music Factory) as well as Miami’s Bayfront Park Amphitheater, but not before kicking it all off with two sold out nights at San Diego’s Observatory North Park. Tickets are flying like bats out of hell, grab them now while you still can: http://www.qotsa.com

In addition to the slew of upcoming North American and European dates, Queens of the Stone Age will be headlining this summer at London’s Finsbury Park on June 30th—and they’re bringing friends. The band has curated a special lineup with guests including Iggy Pop, Run The Jewels, The Hives, Brody Dalle, and more.

LAZARUS: THE MOTION PICTURE/LIVE SOUNDTRACK EXPERIENCE

LAZARUS

THE MOTION PICTURE/LIVE SOUNDTRACK EXPERIENCE

FEATURING EXCLUSIVE PERFORMANCE BY THE ORIGINAL BAND FROM THE
OFF-BROADWAY SHOW BY DAVID BOWIE & ENDA WALSH

ONE NIGHT ONLY MAY 2 AT THE KINGS THEATRE IN BROOKLYN

Tickets On Sale Tuesday, March 20 at https://www1.ticketmaster.com/lazarus-brooklyn-new-york-05-02-2018/event/3000546AACA11ED9?artistid=1522046&majorcatid=10001&minorcatid=60

Lazarus, the stage musical written by David Bowie and Enda Walsh, will be given a new life in a new light on May 2 at 8pm at the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn.

For the first time and for one night only, the theatrical premiere of a film of Lazarus’s London production will be soundtracked in the flesh by the actual band who brought the show to life in New York. Not only will fans who were unable to score tickets to Lazarus’s sold out New York run finally be able to see the show on the silver screen—they will have the unique and unprecedented experience of seeing the film with the music played in its entirety by the seven-piece band that backed Michael C. Hall and the Lazarus cast beginning with the show’s December 7, 2015 opening in New York City.

Lazarus features of nearly 20 songs spanning the Bowie catalogue personally rearranged by David Bowie and Henry Hey, from singles (“Heroes,” “Changes,” “Life On Mars?”) to deep cuts (“Always Crashing in the Same Car,” “It’s No Game (Part 1),” “Dirty Boys”) to the four songs written specifically for the show (“Lazarus,” “No Plan,” “Killing a Little Time,” “When I Met You”).  The Lazarus film/live soundtrack experience will mark the first time that these musicians have played these songs live since the January 20, 2016 finale of the show’s New York run.

The original Lazarus band is comprised of musical director/arranger/keyboardist (and producer of the Lazarus Cast Album) Henry Hey, keyboardist/guitarist JJ Appleton, drummer Brian Delaney, saxophonist Lucas Dodd, bassist Fima Ephron, trombonist Karl Lyden and guitarist Chris McQueen. Together, they will provide live accompaniment to on screen performances by Lazarus London cast members including Michael C. Hall as Thomas Jerome Newton, Amy Lennox as Elly, Sophia Anne Caruso as Girl, Michael Esper as Valentine, Jamie Muscato as Ben, and more.

Written by Bowie and Enda Walsh, Lazarus was inspired by Walter Tevis’s novel The Man Who Fell to Earth, and starred Michael C. Hall as Thomas Jerome Newton, the character Bowie portrayed in the 1976 film adaptation of that book. 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.” Tickets to the entire New York run of Lazarus sold out within hours of going on sale. The sold out London production of Lazarus, which was filmed for the May 2 event, had an exclusive limited run at the specially built Kings Cross Theatre from November 8, 2016 to January 22, 2017.

Lazarus The Motion Picture/Live Soundtrack Experience is presented by Live Nation in association with RZO Productions, Inc., under license from David Bowie Archive. All net proceeds from this show will be donated to Public Programs at the Brooklyn Museum including monthly, talks, performances, and screenings.

ARCADE FIRE PRESENTS “MONEY + LOVE”

ARCADE FIRE PRESENTS

“MONEY + LOVE”

A FILM BY DAVID WILSON

STARRING ARCADE FIRE & TONI COLLETTE

NEW TEASER LIVE NOW AT https://youtu.be/jdQXK2kfWek

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 https://youtu.be/jdQXK2kfWek.

“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.

McCARTNEY FAMILY’S MEAT FREE MONDAY – “A GROWING MOVEMENT”

McCARTNEY FAMILY’S MEAT FREE MONDAY – “A GROWING MOVEMENT”

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.

Facts
• Almost a third of all land on Earth is used for livestock production.1
• A third of all cereal crops, and more than 95 per cent of soy, is turned into feed for farmed
animals.2
• An area of rainforest the size of a hundred football pitches is cut down every hour to create room
for grazing cattle.3
• It can take 2,350 litres of fresh water – that’s about 30 bathtubs! – to produce just one beef
burger.4,5
• According to scientists at the United Nations, livestock production is responsible for 14.5 per
cent of all global greenhouse gas emissions.6 Other scientists say the percentage is even
higher!7
• If present trends continue, over the next 100 years or so there will be a global mass extinction of
species.8
