NEW MUSIC: Claes Cem ‘Catch On Fire’


After an inspirational year in the US, Thailand and his native country of Denmark, recording artist Claes Cem is back with the new enticing melodic pop single “Catch On Fire”.

NEW MUSIC VIDEO: David Bowie ‘No Plan’


At one minute past midnight on January 8th, the day that would have been David Bowie’s70th birthday, a subtly stunning video for the song ‘No Plan’ surfaced quietly. The ‘No Plan’ clip was directed by Tom Hingston, whose previous collaborations with Bowieinclude the award-winning visual interpretation of the original version of ‘Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime)’ from the NOTHING HAS CHANGED compilation. The ‘No Plan’ video features a sparse, compelling narrative that reinforces the hypnotic pull of the ballad hailed by Rolling Stone, who ranked it #4 in their 50 Best Songs of 2016, as “a magnificent coda…one last transmission from the Bowie universe.” Continue reading “NEW MUSIC VIDEO: David Bowie ‘No Plan’”

NEW MUSIC: Restless ft. Haley Bonar


“Restless” is one of 2017’s first great songs: a dreamy, sweetly throbbing electro-pop jam with a warmly soaring, heartfelt vocal at its core. The latest single from darkDARK, a production duo based in LA and Austin, the track features some of the best ingredients around, from charming analog synths to the relentlessly pleasing voice of Haley Bonar.
As producers, darkDARK’s Genevieve Vincent and Chris James craft an infectious track that’s sturdy enough to support endless remixes and compact enough — at just three and a half minutes — to leave listeners wishing for more. “Restless” also provides an intriguing blueprint for Bonar, who usually travels on guitar-driven terrain but possesses a swoony, knowingly melancholy voice that’s ideally suited to the dance floor.

NEW MUSIC: Jo Harman ‘When We Were Young’


Award-winning soul and blues singer-songwriter Jo Harman will release her much anticipated second studio album, People We Become, on February 3rd.
Recorded in Nashville with producer Fred Mollin (Billy Joel, Joe Cocker, Carly Simon, Jimmy Webb) the album features soul legend Michael McDonald (The Doobie Brothers) on the first single “When We Were Young.”
“Jo Harman is yet another example of the rich lineage of great female soul singers to come from Great Britain,” McDonald tells American Songwriter. “To be counted among these supremely talented women you have to really have it ‘goin’ on,’ which she surely does! It was my great privilege to work with her.”

NEW MUSIC: Anna of the North ‘Oslo’


Electronic duo Anna of the North (Anna Lotterud & Brady Daniell-Smith) today unveil new single “Oslo”, transporting you to a crisp, wintery walk through the streets of their city. It’s an icy, reflective synth-pop cut which beautifully marries the coldness of the climate with the warm sensation of home.  It’s got all the allure and emotion we now expect from Anna of the North, and follows the success of Anna & Brady’s previous singles “Sway”, “The Dreamer” “Baby” and most recently “Us”.  The idea for the track came from a photo of the city that Brady from the band had, “I’d never been to Oslo. It seemed so untouched and really captured my imagination”. The song began to form a few winters back, written as gift for a group of homesick Norwegian friends that Brady had met in Australia. He continues, “I met Anna soon after and we finished it together – she brought an authenticity to it that makes it feel like a love letter to the city.”
