“My hope is that if there are kids being bullied—and there are… Maybe by listening to this song and watching this video, they might just think it’s not as bad… that it’s the kind of thing you can just stand up to and laugh off and get through.”—Paul McCartney

“Who Cares,” the newest single from Paul McCartney’s #1 charting Egypt Station (Capitol Records), has been reimagined as a musical short film starring Paul and Emma Stone. Shot on 65mm Kodak Film with Panavision Cameras, “Who Cares” features a message of universal positivity rendered in vivid colorful detail, an viewable exclusively at Apple Music for 24 hours.

Apple Music is home to the best music video-watching experience available anywhere — all ad-free. Starting right now, fans can enjoy “Who Cares” and other amazing Paul McCartney music videos on Apple Music HERE.

To help the song’s positive message to inspire as many people as possible to stand up to bullying and negativity, Paul has joined forces with Creative Visions, a global nonprofit organization that uses the power of media and the arts to ignite positive social change. Creative Visions has partnered not only with Paul and “Who Cares” producers Subtractive Inc., but also with Facebook, Enso, Artemis Rising Foundation and the Blue Chip Foundation to launch #WhoCaresIDo, a  campaign inspired by the song and film. #WhoCaresIDo hopes to reach millions, first raising awareness and engagement regarding the issues addressed by the song and film, then providing them with tools to take action through a network of experts and partners, empowering people to treat others with support and kindness.

The #WhoCaresIDo campaign draws upon the power of the song and film, as well as Creative Visions’ efforts over the last 20 years through its global network of creative activists. Creative Visions is currently building a global coalition of nonprofit partners that will create an umbrella of #WhoCaresIDo organizations and resources to bring compassion to homes, communities and workplaces.  “Millions of people around the world feel silenced, subjugated–bullied– and believe that no one cares,” says Creative Visions Founder Kathy Eldon. “Our intention with this campaign is to put the power of the song to work and inspire us to show up and care–and let others know that we do care.”

“Who Cares” was directed by Brantley Gutierrez and Ryan Heffington. Director of photography was Linus Sandgren. The film was produced by Kyle Schember and Michael Abbott for Subtractive Inc.

ALL WITHIN MY HANDS FOUNDATION & AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF COMMUNITY COLLEGES
LAUNCH THE METALLICA SCHOLARS INITIATIVE

$1 MILLION IN GRANTS TO GO TO 10 COMMUNITY COLLEGES

Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation (AWMH) has launched a major workforce education initiative that provides direct support to community colleges to enhance their career and technical education programs. These programs provide skills and services to students who are looking to enter a traditional trade or other applied learning program. Ten colleges from across the country will receive $100,000 to support more than 1,000 students training to enter the American workforce. These students will become the first cohort of Metallica Scholars.

Partnering with the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), a Washington, D.C. based organization that represents the nation’s 1,103 community colleges, the Metallica Scholars awards were selected via a competitive application process and are designed to provide support of relevant job skill training for community college students, reinvest in communities that supported Metallica during its recent United States tours, and leverage the influence of Metallica to elevate the importance of career and technical education.

“The All Within My Hands Foundation and Metallica are proud to announce this major new initiative,” said Dr. Edward Frank, executive director of AWMH. “While the foundation continues our support for the fight against hunger and emergency community aid, we are now expanding our mission to include support for career and technical education. The goal of our Metallica Scholars Initiative is to improve career opportunities for community college students in the trades. Equally, we hope to raise the awareness of the tremendous importance, value and impact of the education provided by our nation’s community college system. The foundation and the band are thrilled by the quality of proposals we received from these colleges, and are excited to do our part to help educate students so that they have the skills and training necessary to find meaningful and well-paying jobs in their communities.”

AWMH will work closely with AACC to implement and manage the program. “We welcome Metallica as a partner in the career and technical education work of the nation’s community colleges,” said Walter G. Bumphus, AACC’s president and CEO.  “Colleges across the country provide pathways to well-paying jobs through programs, services and training that lead to in-demand skills, certificates and degrees for students.  These programs are responsive to the needs of local businesses and provide a pipeline of qualified workers to local industry.  It’s a win-win for our students and the local economy. For Metallica to see the benefit of these programs and invest in the communities that have supported them is a testament to the power of education and we are proud to do this work with them.”

In addressing why the foundation chose workforce education as part of its mission, Lars Ulrich, Metallica’s drummer and co-founder said, “All of us in the band feel fortunate that music has provided us the opportunity to be successful doing something we are passionate about. We want to share our success with others so that they can find a job where they can do the same.”

In keeping with AWMH’s philosophy of enabling Metallica to give back to communities that have supported the band, the recipient colleges are all AACC members and based in and around stops on Metallica’s 2017-2019 WorldWired Tour.

The 10 sites are:

Central Piedmont Community College, Charlotte, North Carolina
Clackamas Community College, Oregon City, Oregon
College of Lake County, Grayslake, Illinois
Community College of Baltimore County, Baltimore, Maryland
Gateway Technical College, Kenosha, Wisconsin
Grand Rapids Community College, Grand Rapids, Michigan
Lone Star College, The Woodlands, Texas
North Idaho College, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho
Spokane Community College, Spokane, Washington
Wichita State University Campus of Applied Sciences and Technology, Wichita, Kansas

The AWMH Foundation was established in 2017 by Metallica as a means to invest in the people and places that have supported the band. It also provides a mechanism for Metallica’s fans to become engaged in philanthropy and volunteerism. The foundation is focused on supporting sustainable communities through workforce education (in addition to combatting hunger through an alliance with Feeding America), and is fully supported by the band, the AWMH board, and by fans. All expenses of the foundation are covered by the band, the board, and a few special friends, so that 100% of donations go to the organizations it supports. AWMH is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  www.allwithinmyhands.org

As the voice of the nation’s community colleges, the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), delivers educational and economic opportunity for 12 million diverse students in search of the American Dream. Uniquely dedicated to access and success for all students, AACC’s nearly 1,100 member colleges provide an on-ramp to degree attainment, skilled careers and family-supporting wages. Located in Washington, D.C., AACC advocates for these not-for-profit, public-serving institutions to ensure they have the resources and support they need to deliver on the mission of increasing economic mobility for all.

In the wake of the triumphant headline stand at the Austin City Limits festival that the Austin American Statesman called “A Marathon to Remember Forever,”  Paul McCartney has added yet another show to the upcoming U.S. leg of his new Freshen Up tour. The newly confirmed July 10, 2019 show at the SAP Center in San Jose, CA is the newest addition to Paul’s first extended Stateside run 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 #1 charting album, Egypt Station, released September 7th on Capitol Records to stellar reviews: Rolling Stone raved, “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,” while Entertainment Weekly described the album as “the still-vital life force of a superstar who has been there and everywhere and is glad just to be here now.”

The Paul McCartney live experience is everything any music lover could ever want from a 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.

Broken Bells

New Single: “Shelter”

First New Recording Since 2014

Out Now on 30th Century Records via AWAL

The creators of 2010’s “Thrilling, Brilliant, Excellence” (LOS ANGELES TIMES) and 2014’s After the Disco’s even “Better songs, bigger hooks” (NME), Danger Mouse and James Mercer of The Shins, AKA Broken Bells, are back. Despite the next Broken Bells album being a work in progress, the duo has decided to share its epic yet intimate new single “Shelter,” now available through Danger Mouse’s 30th Century Records via AWAL.

“Shelter” was recorded during the first Broken Bells sessions since the stretch that resulted in 2014’s After the Disco album and the 2015 single “It’s That Talk Again.” The sweetly yearning new song represents a renewal of Broken Bells’ signature melodic yet experimental sound that first surfaced with the band’s critically acclaimed and top 10-charting debut in 2010. “Shelter” represents an intimate sonic shift for Broken Bells, as well as the first time the two have combined their unmistakable melodies, lyrics, vocals and singular composition style with samples.

This new twist in Broken Bells’ sonic evolution features Mercer’s airy yet riveting vocals combined with Danger Mouse’s deconstruction and reconstruction of sampled beats that provide the bedrock for “Shelter.” The end result is a solid hypnotic rhythm, with Mercer’s voice dancing atop it, creating a dramatic tension between newfound positivity and hints of darkness and dissonance.

On November 19th, Thom Yorke sat down for an interview and solo performance at Electric Lady Studios in New York City. The session features four songs—three from Thom’s original soundtrack for the Luca Guadagnino film—and a rare in-depth discussion of the creative processes involved in Suspiria and beyond.

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 “Volk” and “Has Ended,” and Pasha Mansurov on solo flute on “Suspirium.”

2019 NORTH AMERICAN DATES CONFIRMED

Tickets On Sale Friday, December 7

And Nothing Hurt Out Now on Fat Possum Records

Following two intimate US performances in 2018, described by VOGUE as “revelatory” and by UPROXX as “staggering grandeur… every single person was laser-focused on that stage and soaking in every bit of the music emitting from it,” Spiritualized have confirmed a full 2019 North American tour in support of their critically acclaimed album And Nothing Hurt (Fat Possum).

Spiritualized will kick off the N.A. tour in March with an appearance at Big Ears Festival in Knoxville, continuing with stops in cities including Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, San Francisco and Brooklyn. See below for the full list of dates.

Presales begin Wednesday, December 5th at 10am local time; tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, December 7th at 10am local time.

Following its release in September, And Nothing Hurt was unanimously praised by critics, who raved:

“The new Spiritualized album is fucking great. It’s awesome. It’s suspiciously awesome…it’s glorious…every time I listen to And Nothing Hurt, I feel myself being lifted and swept away and moved. Every time I hear it, I feel a little more alive…I’m just as glad that Pierce sat at home, figuring things out, and then came along to utterly destroy us with a record this astonishing. You’re not fooling yourself. And Nothing Hurt really is that good.” STEREOGUM (ALBUM OF THE WEEK)

“Arguably the purest and most sentimental music J. Spaceman, a.k.a. Jason Pierce, has crafted…Nothing Hurt is the band distilled into its most affecting essence….if this really is the final Spiritualized album, as Pierce keeps threatening, it’s one hell of a grand statement to go out on.”AV CLUB

“it stands tall as a late candidate for the year’s best rock record. Spiritualized has added yet another chapter to its wild, dreamlike musical legacy, proving that rock isn’t dead and that maybe everyone else just isn’t trying enough.”CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

“Distills and gathers the essence of what has often made Spiritualized so powerful…intricacy is the real delight of And Nothing Hurt. Despite the grandeur of these tunes, and the way they seem built to fill both regal concert halls and big, dark rock clubs, the best way to listen to them might be at home with lights out or eyes closed, headphones clamped tight…Pierce’s authorial scrupulousness and the same slavish devotion to an ideal that made Ladies and Gentlemen… a masterpiece and Spacemen 3 an institution gives these songs, one by one, their power.”PITCHFORK

“Gorgeous…what binds his gushing tunefulness and subtly cutting lyrics is the relationship between the universal quest for transcendence and the near-universal suspicion it’ll never be found…something more wrenchingly true to life, an alloy of hope with a sense of life’s limits.”THE ATLANTIC

ST. VINCENT

LIVE FROM HERE December 15

MassEducation: Reimagining of MASSEDUCTION Out Now on Loma Vista

Following her December 2nd performance at the 41st Annual Kennedy Center Honors honoring Philip Glass with an intricate yet passionate instrumental performance “which received an enthusiastic two-thumbs up from a delighted Glass,” as reported by Billboard, St. Vincent will appear live during the New York City residency of Live from Here with Chris Thile (formerly A Prairie Home Companion).

On December 15th, Annie Clark—accompanied only by piano player Thomas Bartlett—will perform from the stage of New York’s Town Hall as part of a live broadcast from Minnesota Public Radio’s weekly musical mainstay.

Check https://www.livefromhere.org/listen/stations for local air-times.

St. Vincent’s MassEducation was released October 12th on Loma Vista, and was received by Rolling Stone as “the deep breath after the freak-out… less dense structures allowing Clark’s compositional and vocal talents to shine,” and Entertainment Weekly as “riveting reinterpretations… exposed and unadorned… a testament to her versatile songwriting and remarkable vocal strength.” MassEducation is in fact another dimension of last year’s universally acclaimed MASSEDUCTION. Recorded live in the studio over two nights in 2017, MassEducation lays bare the exquisite songcraft of its other half. Performed entirely by Annie Clark on vocals and Thomas Bartlett on piano, the new album renders songs like “Young Lover” and “Fear The Future” and their subjects in vivid, vulnerable new light. Clark herself describes the album as “two dear friends playing songs together with the kind of secret understanding one can only get through endless nights in New York City.”
