Fall Out Boy unveiled a new track this week called ‘The Last of the Real Ones’, taken from their forthcoming album M A N I A. The band also shared the accompanying music video, directed by Mccoy | Meyer. Speaking about the track, Pete Wentz said: “That kind of love you feel for someone because of their glitches, not in spite of them… where you feel the vacuum of them everywhere… and your heart just feels like TNT, quicksand and oblivion all at once…”. Fall Out Boy also confirmed thee intimate European shows to celebrate the album release. The four-piece will kick off the tour in Berlin on 8th January before heading to Stockholm on the 10th and wrapping in London on the 11th. Tickets for all three dates go on general sale on Friday 22nd September at 9am.
Sia – ‘Rainbow’
Sia has released a new track called ‘Rainbow’, which is taken from the My Little Pony: The Movie soundtrack. The song is an empowering and inspiring ballad, and suits a movie soundtrack perfectly. It has a stirring beat which compliments Sia’s flawless vocal and allows the song to radiate positive vibes. This is one of two songs that Sia has contributed to the soundtrack. She also has a role in the forthcoming movie as the voice of Songbird Serenade. You can catch a glimpse of her pony character, complete with a trademark Sia wig, in the official video below.
David Gray – ‘Hole In The Weather’
David Gray has released a new track called ‘Hole In The Weather’, marking his first new music this year. Speaking about the track, he said: “I’m just coming to the end now of what has been a hugely rewarding and super creative year in the studio with my new producer Ben de Vries, and we are in the final stages of finishing off a swathe of new music, most of which will be released next year. Taken as a whole I think it’s possibly the most uplifting batch of songs that I’ve ever written. ‘Hole in the Weather’ is one of several tracks that are now completed and I’ve decided to put it out there as a little taste of things to come for what is set to be a new and very upbeat phase in my music. Hope you all enjoy. Much much more to follow in 2018….”. David is currently embarking on a 22 date, joint headline US tour with Alison Krauss.
Grace Vanderwaal – ‘So Much More Than This’
Since winning America’s Got Talent last year, Grace Vanderwaal has grown from strength to strength. With her debut full-length album Just the Beginning set to drop on November 3, the artist has released her third track from the record. ‘So Much More Than This’ is an infectious poppy offering which captures Grace’s electric personality. From her mature sound to her unique vocal, it’s hard to believe that Grace is so young. The world is her oyster and we have no doubt that she will continue to thrive as an artist over the next few years.
Catherine McGrath – ‘Talk Of This Town’
Catherine McGrath is having a stellar 2017. Not only has she captured the hearts of country and pop fans across the UK and Ireland through live performances, but she’s delivered a string of incredible tracks which showcase her talent perfectly. Her latest release is ‘Talk Of This Town’, the first song to be taken from her forthcoming debut album. Speaking about the track she said: “It’s about people who look at your dream and think ‘That’s never going to happen’. It’s not so much about becoming successful and being like ‘Ha! Look at me!’, it’s about chasing what you want to do and living your life while other people are talking about doing it. I don’t think I’m in a position yet where I’m super successful and can be like ‘Ooh hey, look at me’, but I’m trying my best to make it work.”
Miriam Bryant – ‘Rocket’
‘Rocket’ is the new track from Miriam Bryant, one of the biggest artists on the Swedish music scene. Teaming up with Neiked, the sassy track showcases Miriam’s unique vocal. Speaking about the song, she said “It’s about this psycho that I dated. I was breaking up with him for six months but I never really did it. Then we went to Greece and we wrote ‘Rocket’ and two other songs, and then I came break and broke up with him. It’s a break-up song that was written before the break-up.” When asked if he knew the song is about him, she said “I don’t know and I don’t care! Well, of course he knows it’s about him, I just think he’s not intelligent enough to realise it’s about him. He doesn’t really listen to lyrics. He just likes the fact that somebody wrote a song about him.”
Jacob Banks – ‘Unknown To You’
‘Unknown To You’ is the first single to be taken from singer-songwriter Jacob Banks’ upcoming album. Whilst it was originally featured on his critically acclaimed EP The Paradox, due to its importance to Jacob, he recently decided to revisit the song and rework it. The end result is a stunning stripped-down, vocal-driven offering. The track was premiered as a ‘World First’ on Beats1 by Zane Lowe, who co-wrote the track with Jacob, and was produced by Robin Hannibal and mixed by Tom Elmhirst.
The Keymakers – ‘Good For You’
The Keymakers are formed of brothers Rome Alexander and Rederic. Whilst they’ve been involved in music for their entire lives, they’ve only been working together for around a year. Rome Alexander is known for being a singer-songwriter whilst Rederic switched between piano, guitar and drums before turning to production. Their first single ‘Good For You’ showcases the duo’s unique sound, which is heavy with RnB influences. Speaking about the track’s lyrics, Rome said: “We all mess up sometimes, and neglect the people we care about. No one’s perfect. But this song is about owning those mistakes, the constant effort to be better, and the person that makes that process worth it.”
Glass House Point – ‘Polaris’
Central Florida indie rock band Glass House Point are back with their new single ‘Polaris’. Centered around a 4-piece lineup backed by crisp harmonies, synths, and string ensembles, the track takes many unexpected twists and turns, showcasing a bold dynamic. ‘Polaris’ is taken from their upcoming EP which is due out in October. The track highlights a shift in sound for the band, and whilst speaking about their forthcoming record the band said: “Over the past year, we’ve been working really hard to settle into a new sound. I think that touring and meeting new people has really attributed to us finding our new direction.”
Delacey – ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’
‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ is the debut single from Orange County native, Delacey. Equal parts electronic vocalist standout and songwriter extraordinaire, Delacey’s fingerprints can be found everywhere from The Chainsmokers’ ‘New York City’ to Madison Beer’s ‘Dead’ alongside features on Markus Schulz’s ‘Destiny’ and Wingtip’s ‘Walls’. However, ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ allows her passion for music to be showcased in her own unique style. The track blends her alluring vocals with a hypnotic sound, which makes for a very strong debut.
