Zhu confirmed a big collaboration and primed 2018 as another banner year the Mind of a Genius producer. Right as the calendar flipped, rumors of an impending collaboration with Aussie psychedelic rock luminaries Tame Impala began to circulate, with video clips capturing the alleged ID beginning to trickle in soon thereafter.

During a recent performance in China, Zhu took the opportunity to officially confirm to fans that the collaboration does in fact exist and it is underway, and later confirmed in a statement by the “Waters of Monaco” producer’s management team.

Zhu’s exciting news didn’t stop there though. The aforementioned performance in China came as part of a launch event for a new Chinese electronic dance music label called Liquid State, which will host releases from Zhu, Alan Walker, and burgeoning Chinese artists, among others in 2018. Liquid State is backed by Sony and Chinese streaming and tech powerhouse Tencent Music Entertainment. The new imprint will develop dance content with the intent of leveraging Tencent’s streaming services QQ Music, Kugou Music, and Kuwo Music to distribute said content. The move was effectively sealed by a reported 10% equity swap between Tencent and Sony’s licensing partner, Spotify, in December. Tencent, by comparison, boasts nearly double the users as Spotify across their three platforms.

YouTube seeks to debut a new paid streaming service by March

This post was originally published on this site

YouTube will look to launch its own music streaming service come March. Tentatively titled “Remix,” the paid service will offer video clips directly sourced from YouTube, as well as on-demand music streaming.

Remix represents Google’s third attempt to introduce a music streaming platform that can contend with the likes of Apple Music and Spotify. Google released its audio-only streaming service, Google Play Music, in 2011. 2014 would see the development of YouTube Music Key, a subscription based service that coupled ad-free music streaming and music video viewing on YouTube for a ten-dollar monthly fee. In 2015, YouTube Music Key became YouTube Red. YouTube Red maintained all of YouTube Music Key’s original features, adding offline video viewing. YouTube Red also enabled subscribers to listen to videos even when their phone screens were turned off.

Warner Music Group has already signed a licensing deal with YouTube in support of Remix. YouTube currently remains in talks with Sony Music Entertainment and Universal Music Group. The inception of Remix is said to hinge on YouTube’s ability to negotiate agreements with major music publishers.

YouTube will remain on the offensive as its contract with Vevo becomes subject to renewal in early 2018. Jointly owned by Sony and Universal, Vevo holds a “majority share” of music video rights. YouTube, however, might find some of its industry relationships to be tenuous given the record industry’s general distaste for YouTube’s reportedly thin payouts to labels and artists. The third time might indeed be the ‘charm’ for Google, but only time will tell if Remix can emerge as a formidable contender in the music streaming market.

Andrew W.K. announces new record You’re Not Alone, transcends time and space with world’s best cover art

This post was originally published on this site

YESSS…finally. A new Andrew W.K. record. I suppose the powers that be decided earth’s rollicking population of party rockers had gone on long enough without fresh tunes from the fun-loving, white-tee donning metalhead, so they decided to give them all an early Christmas present with news of the ex-weatherman’s seventh studio album — his first in nearly a decade.

The longplayer, titled You’re Not Alone, is set to drop May 2 of next year on Red Music/Sony Music, and fans can expect it to be chock-full of the signature, high-octane party anthems that’ve made Andrew the hair-farming rock god that he is today.

According to an official statement, in fact, the new tracks will be “reflections on the push and pull between freedom and restriction…a confirmation of everything you are, rejection of all you are not, and, at times, a blurring of the difference between the two. Doubt becomes certainty, confusion becomes clarity, and the fear of life becomes the courage to live it completely.”

Fuck yeah, Andrew. I don’t know what any of that means – at all – but I’m right there with you.

In addition to the announcement of the new record (and equally important to it), W.K. has also revealed the album’s cover art; and it is truly, truly glorious. The image — which was painted by legendary fantasy artists Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell — features Andrew standing alone under a starry night sky, a corded mic stuffed securely into the front of his trademark white pants as he stares into the eyes of some fantastical, reptilian-like dragon creature. An absolute masterclass, without a doubt. View it down below.

You can also check out an introspective video below of Vallejo, Bell, and Andrew discussing the origins and artistic process that went into designing the cover image (which spanned a period of 6+ months) and pre-order various formats of You’re Not Alone (including signed CD/LP bundles) right here from PledgeMusic.

Long live party rock, and in the words of Lord Andrew himself, “if you ever feel down, just remember that I’m out here — partying for you.”


You’re Not Alone tracklisting:

01. The Power of Partying
02. Music Is Worth Living For
03. Ever Again
04. I Don’t Know Anything

Alan Walker releases rework of 2015 single, ‘The Spectre’

This post was originally published on this site

Alan Walker has had no shortage of tracks lately, his clean sound alongside a strong vocalist — whether it be in remix or original form — has been his craft for years now.

“The Spectre” is a single rooted in the sound on which Walker built his fan base. If the melody sounds similar, there’s a reason. Walker initially released “Spectre” in January 2015 and has re-released it with a fresh set of vocals for a new sound entirely. The 2017 rework is an energetic electro track that pounds the listener with major chords and overarching lead synths for a classic sound.
