Entercom recently announced their lineup for this year’s “I’m Listening” campaign — a live, commercial-free broadcast to raise awareness around mental health and suicide prevention.

Set to air September 9 at 7:00am local time on live streams via the Radio.com app as part of National Suicide Prevention Week, the broadcast will feature a variety of music, film, and sports role models. The special will have call-in opportunities and an interactive website for listeners to share stories and discuss resources for help.

Influencers featured on the show this year are Alessia CaraBebe RexhaCharlie Puth, Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park, Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps, Mike McCready and Stone Gossard of Pearl Jam, Academy Award-winning actor and Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto, Stone Temple Pilots, Stephan Jenkins of Third Eye Blind and more.

After Chester Bennington died in 2017 from suicide, his bandmate, Mike Shinoda, released his first solo album, Post Traumatic, about his journey out of grief and darkness. He told Billboard, “In most parts of the world, suicide claims more lives than war, murder, and natural disasters combined. I hope that sharing my personal story, in music and conversation, helps open up the door to new discussions and awareness about mental health.”

Last year, the broadcast featured HalseyLogic, and Metallica. The iconic rock band said, “Talking about it is the most important thing.” Bassist Robert Trujillo reminded fans, “It’s not a sign of weakness to see a doctor when you are depressed.”

The special will be hosted by Seattle KISW-FM personality BJ Shea and, feature clinical psychologist and NowMattersNow.org CEO Dr. Ursula Whiteside as well as co-founder and executive director of Concussion Legacy Foundation, Dr. Chris Nowinksi.

Zedd, Yellow Claw, and KillaGraham produced songs on Thirty Seconds to Mars’ new album

Five years after their last LP, Thirty Seconds to Mars have released their fifth studio album, America. The rock band has teamed up with a variety of big names to round out the album, and fans will find production credits from Zedd, Yellow Claw and KillaGraham on the LP.

At the beginning of 2018, Thirty Seconds to Mars released “Dangerous Night” — a track written by Jared Leto and Stevie Aiello and produced by Zedd. KillaGraham lends a production hand in the album’s third track,”Rescue Me,” and Yellow Claw worked with Leto on “Hail to the Victor.”

This isn’t the first time Thirty Seconds to Mars has stepped into the electronic music realm.

“We’ve been exploring electronic music from our very first album, so this isn’t something new for us,” Leto told USA Today. “But we break some rules as well for ourselves and tread upon new ground, which is exciting.”

The 12-track album also features collaborations with A$AP Rocky and Halsey and is out now on Interscope.

Thirty Seconds to Mars – Walk on Water (R3HAB Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Just days after the release of his collaboration with Krewella, R3HAB has released another huge track: a rework of Thirty Seconds to Mars‘ “Walk on Water.” The powerhouse producer has been on a roll lately, releasing his debut album in September and finishing up multiple originals and collaborations.

His remix of “Walk on Water” adds a dance music backbone to the original track, but doesn’t stray too far from the empowering rock song’s core. R3HAB lets lead vocalist Jared Leto‘s voice guide the track, adapting it just slightly to fit in with the producer’s discography. It’s a well-executed of an already brilliant song that will rouse fans of both dance and rock music.

Everything wrong with Skrillex and Rick Ross’s ‘Purple Lamborghini’

This post was originally published on this site

Skrillex and Rick Ross joined forces earlier this year to pen the Suicide Squad piece “Purple Lambhorgini.” The single consisted of Rick Ross’s money-centric lyricism, paired with slight Joker references (such as Gotham City), and set to a Sonny Moore-manufactured beat, pumped with fierce bass drops and horn samples to boost the dramatic lyrics put forth by Ross.

The piece fell upon an audience as critical as the one reviewing Suicide Squad, with many commenting in particular about the monotonous subject matter and slightly confusing accompanying video. As a result, the popular YouTube channel “Music Video Sins” decided to bundle up everyone’s criticisms into a neat and comedic bundle of “sins” committed by both the song’s composers and video directors.

Watch the video above as the commentator counts out 37 sins in total, spanning from the fact that a purple Lambhorgini is not actually present throughout the film all the way to Jared Leto’s odd role as the Joker throughout.
