posted by Oscar October 6, 2017

Sam Smith has detailed his forthcoming sophomore album, The Thrill Of It All, which will be released worldwide on November 3rd via Capitol Records, and has taken opportunity of the announcement to also share new song “Pray.”

The song’s title sets the theme right off the bat for the elements you’ll hear in the track’s production and lyrics, incorporating elegant strings and a lively choir for backing vocals to a Gospel-tinged sound that is a proper accompaniment to Smith’s singing about reading the bible and being his counterpart’s disciple while admitting he’s more sinner than saint. Smith’s seemingly got another hit on his hands here.

Smith has also announced the North American dates for The Thrill Of It All tour. The trek through arenas will kick off on June 18, 2018 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto and moving on to shows at Barclays Center in Brooklyn (June 27), New York City’s Madison Square Garden (June 29) and before concluding back in Canada at Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome on September 13.

posted by Oscar October 4, 2017

NE-HI have announced that they will be releasing a new 7″ featuring the songs “Rattled and Strange” and “Long Time.”

Along with that news, the Chicago band have shared the video for “Rattled and Strange.” Speaking on the Weird Life Films production, bassist James Weir said in a press release:

“When you’re on the road as much as we are, it’s crucial to have something to occupy your time in between gigs… As dive bar aficionados, the game of pool has become that activity. The ‘Rattled and Strange’ video is an homage to The Hustler sequel aka 1986 pool hall drama The Color of Money. The reason being that it’s about the combination of three of the Earth’s most revered treasures: the game of pool, Chicago, and Martin Scorsese.”

The 7″ is out November 3rd on Grand Jury, the same week they hit the road for US tour that will include headline dates and supporting slots for friends Whitney and Chad VanGaalen.

Check out the visual above. See below for the band’s upcoming tour dates.

posted by Oscar September 29, 2017

Vic Mensa has released the visuals for his song “Rollin’ Like a Stoner,” off his debut LP The Autobiography out now.

The music video was directed by Vic himself, and they’ll take you on a trip you’d expect/hope to take if you partake in what the song title alludes to. Speaking on the concept for the video, Vic Mensa said:

The Rolling Like A Stoner video is about reckless abandon & escapism. The whole thing was filmed on a stage, as a comment on life as an entertainer. I was watching films like Bye Bye Life and Birdman, and 1920s westerns.”

Take a look at the video above.

Vic will be a special guest on Jay-Z’s 4:44 Tour this coming Fall. Check out the dates here.
