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.”

For more information about Meat Free Monday, to watch One Day a Week, and to share three brand new bite-sized edits of the film, please visit meatfreemondays.com.

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

RYAN ADAMS HAS TWO VALENTINES DAY GIFTS FOR YOU

RYAN ADAMS HAS TWO VALENTINES DAY GIFTS FOR YOU

“Baby I Love You” V-Day Single Out Digitally Today via Blue Note/Pax-Am

June 14 at Red Rocks On Sale Now

Ryan Adams has a double shot of V-Day love for the world this year:

First, a special Valentines Day single—“Baby I Love You”—a brand new and unavailable elsewhere track brought to you on the wings of Cupid (and by Blue Note/Pax-Am). “Baby I Love You” is exactly what it sounds like: A song to one’s baby, whom they love—a unique twist on Ryan Adams’ classic recipe, with key ingredient “sad” replaced by “happy.” Listen here and check out the love-ly visual interpretation of the song by director Brook Linder here.

And second, hearts aren’t the only red things in the bouquet Ryan’s getting you this year: Tickets are on sale now for a just-announced June 14 headline show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO. Yes, Ryan’s first confirmed show of 2018 will be his return to the site of the 2017 show that generated local raves including “Ryan Adams Fans Fulfill Their Wildest Dreams at Red Rocks” (WESTWORD) and “Watching him onstage amidst the thousands of people who came out to see him was a surprisingly intimate affair… Adams sincerely put the audience first playing a slew of fan favorites all night, to everyone’s delight” (303 MAGAZINE).

Preservation Hall Horns, RAM, and Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire Release Theme Song To Commemorate Inaugural Krewe du Kanaval

Preservation Hall Horns, RAM, and Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire
Release Theme Song To Commemorate Inaugural Krewe du Kanaval

“Ann Ale! (Let’s Go!)” Available Now at www.kanaval.org

Proceeds To Be Donated to the Preservation Hall Foundation & KANPE

In anticipation of the inaugural Krewe du Kanaval taking place Tuesday, February 6, 2018 in New Orleans, the Preservation Hall Horns, RAM and Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire have collaborated on “Ann Ale! (Let’s Go!),” a Krewe du Kanaval theme, released today at www.kanaval.org.

“Ann Ale! (Let’s Go!),” recorded in New Orleans last week, is an embodiment of the spirit of Krewe du Kanaval: a new Mardi Gras Krewe, mobile music event and celebration of Haiti and the diaspora of cultures that have enriched New Orleans’ identity and arts for hundreds of years.

The music of “Ann Ale! (Let’s Go!)” was written by Win Butler and Regine Chassagne, with lyrics by Win Butler, Regine Chassagne, and Richard Morse. The song was produced by Win Butler, Regine Chassagne, and Eric Heigle, and mixed by Craig Silvey with Win Butler and Eric Heigle.

The inaugural Krewe du Kanaval will run from 12 noon through to the late evening, consisting of a parade/procession through the French Quarter and Treme, a free afternoon festival in Armstrong Park and a ticketed Kanaval Ball at the iconic club One Eyed Jacks. Much like the theme song, the Krewe itself is a joint effort between Preservation Hall, Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire and Haitian friends. It aims to be a welcome and necessary annual addition to New Orleans’ Mardi Gras traditions and will raise funds to benefit the Preservation Hall Foundation and KANPE – two not-for-profit organizations which serve important unmet social and cultural needs in New Orleans and Haiti.

Confirmed talent includes members of Arcade Fire including singers Win Butler and Regine Chassagne, the world famous Preservation Hall Jazz Band, DJ Nickodemus, DJ Cosmo Gonik, Paul Beaubrun and special guests from Haiti including RAM.
