“All in All is my favorite song on the album,” tweets the famed Canadian singer, Shania Twain, about her newest album release.
A brand new song was newly performed by Chance the Rapper, still untitled and seen on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. It is a collaboration between himself and Canadian Daniel Caesar, the latter joining in the fun with backing vocals and electric guitar.
Walking around the Verizon Amphitheater in Atlanta, Georgia, half-listening to Shaman’s Harvest (the opening act of Nickelback’s Feed the Machine Tour), it could have been 2017, 2007 or 2001. Nothing about the crowd (except maybe the age) provided a clue: people attired in the timeless fashion of rock concerts including tour shirts, distressed denim, Flashdance-esque torn up tees. And huge smiles. There’s something irresistible about a good, old-fashioned rock concert with hard-hitting vocals, over-amped guitar and very drunk fans.
It is poignant, it is beautiful and it is something we can all relate too on some level or another. His newest song since the Oscar-winning “Writing’s On the Wall” single, Sam Smith brings us a piano-led spectacular piece which finds the singer moving away from a rather volatile relationship.
Back in the day, the Staple Singers were a hit. Mavis Staples, the 78 year old solo artist who specialized in blues and gospel, has announced a new album that is named If All I Was Was Black and includes 10 new songs. Her collaborator on this is Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, a name often associated with Staples since their Grammy Award for 2010’s You Are Not Alone as Best Americana Album, who has both written the songs and produced the album.
“…Ready For It?” is set to serve as the opening soundtrack for the ABC fall season promos, including college football coverage, which is quite rad. She’s also got a new Video-On-Demand channel happening, while her battles with one artist after another continue. In the meantime, the first single off the album, “Look What You Made Me Do” has jumped from its No. 77 spot to No. 1, Swift’s fifth song to make that stage. The Hot 100 chart is one of the most important in the USA, making this victory something to truly celebrate. Yep, whatever is to come next, Taylor Swifts is definitely ready for it.
“Dusk Till Dawn” is fun, it’s catchy, and has fans around the world cheering at the incredible musical arrangements. It is quite epic really, with both artists considered powerhouses in the industry. The high notes are delivered to perfection, while the overall vocals leave nothing to be desired. Truly, this is a masterpiece of a song, as pretty much anything Sia works on generally seems to be great!
There will be a performance by Morrissey during the LA Hollywood Bowl, a one-off show instead of a tour, taking place on November 10. There is also a biopic in the mix that just came out called England is Mine, while October 20 will see the release of The Queen is Dead, an 1986 Smiths LP deluxe reissue

(as a huge Swifty myself... I won't lie.. I am pretty excited!)
