Vince Staples oFISHally HOOKS us with RELEASE date for new muSEAcal album Big Fish Theory

This post was originally published on this site

“Avast, ye,” maybe! Long Beach rapper and bane of upper-middle-class Christian moms everywhere Vince Staples has finally dropped some of the details regarding his new album and shared a new song.

The album is called Big Fish Theory, and it’s out June 23 via Def Jam/ARTium. As you can see above, its accompanying artwork features what is ostensibly a normal-sized fish in a very small bowl. This is called “symbolism.”

And while I would ordinarily just assume that something called Big Fish Theory is some weird, off-brand cross-promotion between The Big Bang Theory and the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean movie, Staples’ record is actually the hotly anticipated follow-up to the previously hotly anticipated Prima Donna EP from last year, which followed 2015’s hotly acclaimed LP Summertime ‘06. Vince previously embarked on a worldwide voyage he appropriately called The Life Aquatic Tour—because he really hates mixing metaphors—but he still has plenty of festival dates lined-up through summertime ‘17.

While no official tracklisting has “surfaced,” the rapper just premiered the music video for a new track from the album called “Big Fish,” which features open ocean, a shipwreck, and sharks (godDAMN, his theming is on-point). Watch it below. It’s totally “yar.”

06.01.17 – San Francisco, CA – Bill Graham Civic Auditorium

Alesso’s New Single “Falling” Releases This Friday

This post was originally published on this site

After releasing his successful debut album Forever in 2015, Alesso launched a huge album tour. Many artists would take it easy after such a busy year, but Alesso surprised in 2016 by releasing two new singles: “I Wanna Know” featuring Nico & Vinz and Jolin Tsai and “Take My Breath Away.” Alesso’s continuing that momentum in 2017 by gearing up for his first big release for the year.

Alesso’s new single, “Falling,” will release this Friday, February 3, on Def Jam. He uploaded a teaser of the track with its release announcement, hinting at yet another progressive house track with a female vocalist. Alesso’s MO seems to be “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” and “Falling” will likely go down as another hit under the Swedish producer’s hit-laden belt. Spotify users can head here to pre-save the single so they’ll have the track in their collection on release date. Listen to the “Falling” preview below:

YG Blasts Def Jam For ‘Red Friday’ Leak

This post was originally published on this site

(AllHipHop News) YG’s latest project Red Friday is now available for streaming and download.

However, the California rapper was not happy that the collection made its way to the internet before planned, and he is blaming his record label.

“WTF? Red Friday Leaked? On Piru I hate DEF JAM. Always f-kkin my shitt up,” wrote YG on Twitter.

He then repeatedly posted, “F-CK DEF JAM!”

Following his “FDT” collaborator Nipsey Hussle, YG offered Red Friday as a retail mixtape for $100.

“THE WORLDS 2ND $100 CD,” tweeted YG earlier this week. “SUPER FANS & SUPER SUPPORTERS ONLY. Mixtape in – store and signing In #OAKLAND.”

 

Christine – Drama feat. T La Rock [Uprise]

This post was originally published on this site
The emotive French duo known as Christine is back, this time with an glorious combination of synthwave and disco titled “Drama.”

 

The track is a dance-friendly jam that packs an eerie glow just in time for Halloween, and the vocals sample T La Rock’s “Runaway,” which also happens to be the first single to feature Def Jam’s iconic support back in 1984. “Drama” bears an undeniable semblance to the work of Kavinsky, but that hardly detracts from the magnificence of the piece, and you’ll hardly find a better soundtrack for this weekend’s festivities.

 

“Drama” will be featured in Christine’s debut album, which is scheduled for release early next year, but in the meantime check out the throwback music video below.

Skrillex, Bibi Bourelly, and Kehlani have a new collaboration on the way

This post was originally published on this site

The internet has been rumbling about a new Skrillex track on the way. Fans are hungry for a new release from OWSLA‘s head honcho, and while the final cut of his new track for Alexander Wang’s fall campaign just dropped in full, it seems like “Crown Vic” might not be all that Skrillex has lined up right now. After announcing an indefinite hiatus from Jack Ü happenings, Sonny may be pouring more time into the solo endeavors of Skrillex and the first fruits might come by way of a new collaboration with rising vocalist Kehlani and Def Jam songwriting ace Bibi Bourelly.

In what seems to be an anxious tweet-then-delete hint, Kehlani spills the beans on a new upcoming joint effort that seems like it could land at any minute. What’s more — Skrillex is a very vocal supporter of both lyricists, making the collaboration all the more realistic. Dancing Astronaut reached out to Skrillex’s team, though no confirmation about an official collaboration or release date has been provided yet.

For now, its all still speculation, but if the collaboration is really finished, hopefully Skrillex doesn’t sit on it too long.
