The War On Drugs’A Deeper Understanding is finally going to drop in full this Friday, August 25th, on Atlantic Records. The band just released the official video for the album’s second “official” single, “Pain.”
The video is beautiful, too, especially if you have a connection to Philadelphia. Love the concept of a barge just rolling into the city carrying the amazing music of The War on Drugs…
Directed by Emmett Malloy and shot on 16mm film, the video captures a black and white portrait of industrial Philadelphia as the band performs “Pain” on a cargo ship coasting down the Schuylkill River. It’s a classic portrait of America floating by set to the soundtrack of The War On Drugs.
Just hours ago, the OWSLA label head delivered a short but sweet tweet about possible release details for the noteworthy track. In response to fan inquiry, Sonny Moore revealed on Twitter that the remix would be released “Verryyy Soon.” Check out the tweet in its entirety and a clip of the new track below:
Tropical aficionado Sam Feldt and iconic singer Akon have teamed up for a playful original mix that keeps the summer vibes coming. “Yes,” out now on Spinnin’ Records, is a refreshing and fun collaboration between the two wildly talented artists.
The colorful music video features Akon playfully painting on a variety of dancing ladies with body paint. The video also features a smiling Feldt DJing behind the decks, along with a saxophone and trumpet player belting out catchy hooks. It’s simple, yet sweet, and perfectly showcases the vibe the song is exhibiting.
The music world hasn’t seen a Akon-featured song in a while, so hearing that legendary voice on a track is pleasant surprise. Those who grew up in the 2000s will be taken back to songs like “Right Now (Na Na Na)” and “Don’t Matter” just hearing the American-born Senegalese singer’s voice.
The song is the lead single from Feldt’s upcoming debut album Sunrise, out Oct. 6 on Spinnin’ Records.
So far his hit “First Time” with Ellie Goulding has gone platinum, he’s released a documentary detailing his rise to fame on Apple Music, and hit a slew of the most reputable festivals around the world. Only continuing to build upon his wide range of successes, Kygo took to the stage and gave his fans a reminder that things are only looking up on the production front. In a show-stopping performance at his home in Norway, he unveiled a brand new track dubbed “Stargazing.”
Kygo later went on to upload the two brief, yet mighty clips to his Instagram story giving fans a tantalizing taste of what to expect on this gorgeous new track. Take a listen.
I’m not sure I caught the news when it dropped that Umphrey’s McGee and White Denim would be doing some shows together this summer — GREAT PAIRING! — and last night the band played in Nashville at Ascend Amphitheater. During the headlining set by UM they brought up the lead James Petralli of White Denim and they took a run through Peter Tosh‘s “Stepping Razor”.
Here’s the original in case you want to jah out today.
Slander starts by slowing down Travis Scott’s unmistakeable autotuned vocals and layering them over an airy synth. An energetic build leads to a wavy future bass drop, until the intense double time percussion brings the track to a halting stop. Bringing in Camila Cabello and Quavo’s verses over minimal production, Slander showcases Major Lazer’s guests before getting right back into the full and explosive second drop.
Porn. The word is almost onomatopoeic in its ubiquitous meaning. Hub. The loosely used suffix to define the effective center of any particular activity or network. So essentially Pornhub would be the internet’s self-proclaimed epicenter of pornography, though today, the website is adding another beat, excuse the pun, to their relatively narrow content mill. The pornography giant has partnered with Borgore to debut his latest music video for an appropriately titled “Savage.” Yes, nowadays Pornhub is diversifying their portfolio with music video hosting. Though it was only a matter of time before they either linked with Borgore’s brazenly crass brand, or offered him a job.
The “Domino” producer’s latest output is par for the course Borgore: its loud, aggressive, bass-laden party music, though the marketing campaign behind the new music video is undeniably ingenious. Leveraging the millions of eyes viewing Pornhub pages at every hour of the day, Borgore’s C- new tune and hilariously NSFW new video will be in front of everyone whether they like it or not.
We don’t have the decency to publish the full video on our site, but you can head to the Hub of all online Pornography to view the video in full.
