JAMES HUNTER SIX – HOLD ON!

JAMES HUNTER SIX – HOLD...

This may be James Hunter's fourth album, but it is his first on Daptone. Produced by Daptone's own Bosco Mann (Gabriel Roth) at Penrose Recorders (Daptone West) near his home in Riverside, CA, Hold On! is a perfect portrait of an artist at the top of his game. James Hunter has been on the scene for enough years to acquire plenty of feathers in his cap. Billboard charts, Grammy nominations, and Van Morrison collaborations aside, he has earned an international reputation as a Rhythm and Blues troubadour for his command of the microphone both on stage and in studio. This album, however, is something far deeper than just another notch in his belt. It is truly an artist’s vision come to fruition.

ELLIOTT SMITH – HEAVEN...

UMe are pleased to announce the release of Heaven Adores You, the eponymous soundtrack of documentary about celebrated singersongwriter Elliott Smith. The film Heaven Adores You (Eagle Rock Entertainment, out now on iTunes, BluRay, and DVD) is as much documentary as it is a remembrance of Smith, at turns meditative and tactile. The first comprehensive look at Smith’s life and music, Heaven Adores You was created by Nickolas Rossi, Jeremiah Gurzi, Kevin Moyer, and Marc Smolowitz and features long listens to the music amongst interviews with friends, former band mates and producers, and others who were closest to Elliott. The soundtrack is a fascinating and, until now, unforeseen entrée into this prodigious songwriter’s dedicated process. "It's a balance between rough and polished works, early and late‐career compositions, instrumental and vocals,” says music supervisor and soundtrack producer Kevin Moyer. “We were trying to make sure that we showed his evolution as an artist.” Among the gems: “Untitled Guitar Finger Picking,” ...

VINYL – MUSIC FROM THE...

Two days before Vinyl, the highly anticipated new HBO series from executive producers Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter bows on Feb. 14, Atlantic Records and Warner Bros. Records will release Vinyl: Music From the HBO Original Series - Volume 1 and the music will keep coming weekly throughout the show’s 10-episode run. Atlantic partnered with sister label Warner Bros. on the project “to utilize the Warner Music Group catalog as a whole,” Weaver says, though stresses that the musical selections on the show aren’t limited to WMG’s holdings. “The idea has been to lean on our catalog and repertoire and our front-line roster in the best way possible, but always to serve the creative needs of the show first and foremost,” he says.

LUCINDA WILLIAMS – THE GHOSTS OF HIGHWAY 20

LUCINDA WILLIAMS – THE...

We’ve all heard about the iconic vibe of Route 66, the neon lights on Broadway and the ocean air of the Pacifi c Coast Highway. But there are untold stories emanating from countless blue highways across the land – like Interstate 20, which cuts a 1500-mile swath from South Carolina to Texas, and cuts deep into the spirit of those who’ve spent their lives traversing it. Lucinda Williams is one of those people, and with the expansive, enveloping The Ghosts of Highway 20, she brings those stories to life – and gives listeners a remarkably vivid look at how the highway has been a literal and fi gurative backdrop throughout her entire life. The intensely involving 14-song collection may be the most deeply felt, deeply affecting work of Lucinda Williams’ illustrious 35-plus year career, a career that has been established on a foundation of remarkably personal songs.

ELTON JOHN – WONDERFUL...

Elton John will release his 33rd studio album, ‘Wonderful Crazy Night,’ worldwide on February 5, 2016. The album was coproduced by Elton and T‐Bone Burnett and recorded at The Village in Los Angeles and features the infectious and upbeat lead single, “Looking Up,” which was serviced out to radio in October. ‘Looking Up’ is the perfect trailer for what is sure to be hailed as another masterful entry into one of the most distinguished album catalogues in history. The song’s upbeat rhythm and lyric are fueled by rock guitar and a killer piano motif that conjure echoes of some of Elton’s best‐loved hits. It also has all of the refreshing enthusiasm and spirit of creativity that go with him every time he sets foot in a studio. John and Burnett oversaw 2013’s acclaimed ‘The Diving Board,’ a top five success in both the UK and US, and the historic 2010 alliance with Elton’s early inspiration Leon Russell, ...
