Radiohead Teases New Album With Mysterious Leaflets Mailed To Fans

Posted On Mar 2 2021 by

first_img“Burn The Witch” refers to a song/idea that surfaced at least 13 years ago, as the title appeared in the album artwork for Hail To The Thief in 2003. While it has never been performed in full, the lyrics appeared on the band’s website in 2007, and include the line “Sing the song of sixpence, burn the witch.”Considering that the band’s shows are coming up soon, it’s feasible that the new album could drop any day now. Anticipation for the new Radiohead album is at an all-time high, as the band gears up for their world tour dates in just three weeks, on May 20th. The new album has been discussed for years, and recent updates from the band and their collaborators have more or less confirmed the album’s completion. The group  took their pre-album planning one step further, mailing mysterious leaflets to fans across the UK.The leaflets read “Sing The Song Of Sixpence… Burn The Witch… We Know Where You Live,” with the band’s bear logo imprinted in the bottom right corner. There’s also artwork on the top that could be the album cover, though that’s pure speculation. Check out the leaflet below:last_img read more

Watch Neil Young, Willie Nelson & His Sons Share The Stage In Italy

Posted On Mar 2 2021 by

first_imgThere’s no denying that the legendary Neil Young has seen something of a renewed vigor of late, having teamed with Promise Of The Real for their debut album The Monsanto Years in 2015. Of course, POTR is powered by Lukas and Micah Nelson, children of the renowned guitarist Willie Nelson. There’s no love lost between Nelson and Young, as the two have collaborated many times over throughout their lengthy careers. Seeing them play together with the whole Nelson family, however, always makes for a special moment.That happened over the weekend, when Willie Nelson joined Young and Promise of the Real over two nights in Italy. The first show featured Nelson on the classic “Are There Any More Real Cowboys?,” and continued when POTR played their debut version of Nelson’s hit song “On The Road Again.” Watch it all go down at the Terme di Caracalla in Rome, below.Nelson reprised his appearance last night as well, joining his sons and Neil Young for another pairing of “Are There Any More Real Cowboys?” and “On The Road Again” at Piazza Napoleone in Lucca, Italy. This show, however, included an added bonus, as Nelson returned for the encore performance of the song “Homegrown.” Watch that great encore below, courtesy of 4musiclovers.Check out the full setlists from the weekend, below.Edit this setlist | More Neil Young + Promise of the Real setlists Edit this setlist | More Neil Young + Promise of the Real setlistslast_img read more

Sony Acquires The Beatles Catalog From Michael Jackson’s Estate

Posted On Mar 2 2021 by

first_imgEntertainment juggernaut Sony has received permission to complete it’s record purchase of the publishing catalog owned by the Michael Jackson estate. The sale, which was under review by the European Commission, comes amid huge industry protests from Warner Music and Impala, a group that represents independent music companies, who claim that this new purchase will give Sony an unfair market advantage, as the deal will give them a 28% share of the global songwriting market. Given that Sony and Jackson’s publishing company, ATV Music Publishing, had been operating as a joint venture since 1995, it’s not necessarily a shock that this was approved.Back in the 80s, Paul McCartney told a young Michael Jackson how lucrative it was to owning music publishing, so Jackson went out and purchased ATV, which, to the chagrin of McCartney, contained the majority of the Lennon/McCartney songwriting catalog from their days in The Beatles. in 1995, Jackson combined ATV with Sony, and now, seven years after his untimely death, Jackson’s estate is finally able to sell the full catalog to their long-time partner.The deal between Sony and ATV is for a whopping $750 Million, which is sure to be a huge boon to Jackson’s estate. The list of artists under ATV control is massive and filled with mega-stars. See below for a few of the bigger names, to give you an idea of just how huge this deal is.ATV Music Publishing Artists:Beck, Beyoncé, Bob Dylan, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Celine Dion, Coldplay, Eminem, Gorillaz, James Brown, Jay-Z, Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer, Kraftwerk, Lady Gaga, Oasis, Pearl Jam, Pharrell Williams, R. Kelly, Rolling Stones, Snoop Dogg, Taylor Swift, Whitney Houston, Willie Nelson[H/T NY Times]last_img read more

Posted On Mar 2 2021 by

first_imgAfter spending a month and a half at home, Widespread Panic emerged victoriously at the Warner Theatre in Washington, DC last night. The band notoriously told fans that 2017 would be a lighter year for them, as they plan to limit tour dates to major runs and events. With that in mind, the band has a hearty schedule mapped out for the remainder of 2016, starting with their two-night run in DC.The band opened up the show with “Holden Oversoul,” and brought a number of great original tunes like “Blackout Blues,” “One Arm Steve” and more. The band covered Van Morrison’s “Send Your Mind” in the first set as well, and closed out with “Shut Up and Drive” and “Steven’s Cat.”The jams continued in set two when the band opened with “Henry Parsons Died,” and continued to bring the heat with a medley that featured fan-favorite “Little Lilly” segueing into Funkadelic’s “Red Hot Mama.” A great segment of “Papa’s Home” > “Drums” > “Papa’s Home” served as a big jam vehicle, while “North” ended the set in style. Finally, “Expiration Day” and “Porch Song” closed out the set.Check out the full setlist below, and tune in for a full audio stream here.Setlist: Widespread Panic at Warner Theatre, Washington, DC – 9/6/16Set 1: Holden Oversoul > Blackout Blues, One Arm Steve, You Got Yours, Good People, Send Your Mind, Walkin’ (For Your Love), Shut Up and Drive, Steven’s Cat (55 mins)Set 2: Henry Parsons Died, Better Off, Little Lilly > Red Hot Mama > Up All Night > Papa’s Home > Drums > Papa’s Home, Sell Sell, Angels Don’t Sing The Blues, North (92 mins)Encore: Expiration Day, Porch Song (11 mins)[Cover photo and setlist courtesy of]last_img read more

The Main Squeeze Perform “Circle Of Life” In Honor Of Harambe The Gorilla [Watch]

Posted On Mar 2 2021 by

first_imgLast night, The Main Squeeze performed at the Madison Theatre in Covington, KY. Video evidence suggests that they absolutely destroyed the place with their rocking grooves and belting vocals. Being so close to Cincinnati, the Chicago-bred, LA-based quintet decided to pay their respects to Harambe, a 17-year-old Western lowland gorilla that was shot-dead earlier this year at the Cincinnati Zoo.The incident occurred after a three-year-old boy fell into the Zoo’s gorilla enclosure. Taking the child into his own hands, Harambe was shot after showing signs of agitation and disorientation. The event drew nationally controversial reactions regarding the zoo’s handling of the situation. Experts of primatology later concluded that the zoo had no choice under the circumstances, and that the event highlighted the danger of animals in close proximity to humans – but even more, the need for better standards and overall understanding of care and consideration of life.In honor of Harambe’s life, The Main Squeeze performed “The Circle of Life”, delivering an emotionally-charged, yet celebratory tribute to the late gorilla. The band had this to say about the incident: “We wanted to pay our respects to the memory of a majestic creature as well as all of the animals of the animal kingdom. We wished to shed light on the fact that this earth does not revolve around us, and it serves as a reminder to respect the other beings of this great planet and to understand we are just cogs in a much greater circle of life. RIP Harambe.”Watch a clip of the performance below:On a lighter note, the band also shared this recap video from last night’s performance:If you haven’t already, catch The Main Squeeze at a live show near you.
