Following on from his massive ‘Chocola’ collaboration with Mohombi and Bayanni just a few months ago, which has amassed over a million plays online, and garnered support from the likes of Trace TV, Deezer, TV5MONDE, Spotify, and Apple Music, Dubai-based Gambian Senegalese singer, songwriter, and producer DAWDA is excited to unveil his debut solo single titled ‘WINE’. Out on February 8 via trailblazing Dubai-based studio LPME Group, the infectious ‘Wine’ is the first single to be taken from Dawda’s highly anticipated forthcoming project that is set to be released in the summer.

Written by Dawda, produced with Egyptian Swedish musician Aladdin Awad (Claydee, Dappy, SL, Leila AD), and mastered by Grammy Award nominated audio engineer Dave Kutch, who has also worked with Billie Eilish, The Weeknd, and Beyoncé, among others, ‘Wine’ is a glorious blend of afrobeats, R&B, pop, and dancehall music, fused together to near perfection. Inspired by the Jamaican dance ‘dutty wine’, the track is a seductive offering driven by lush synths, percussion, and bass guitar arrangements, which sees Dawda waxing lyrical and enamoured by his leading lady’s dance moves.

Having already cut his teeth as a consummate songwriter for the likes of Snoh Aalegra, Iyaz, Ashley Tisdale, and Sean Kingston, Dawda is stepping into the limelight as a lead artist in his own right this year.

Raised in Sweden and now living in the United Arab Emirates, Dawda’s musical influences range from Mbalax originating out of his home countries Gambia and Senegal; to afrobeats and amapiano from Nigeria and South Africa; to contemporary R&B and pop music. This eclectic inspiration is reflected in his debut solo single ‘Wine’, and will set the sonic foundation for his forthcoming debut EP coming in the summer. Dawda’s unique musical style seamlessly marries the rhythms of afrobeats with the soulfulness of R&B, and the allure of pop, creating an innovative sound that will resonate across continents.

Nashville-based singer, songwriter, and artistLeah Marie Masondelivers the ultimate Galentine’s Day anthem, “YOUR BOYFRIEND SUCKS,” out on all streaming platforms today.

“YOUR BOYFRIEND SUCKS” marks a new era for Leah as she breaks away from her country roots and embraces a more pop-leaning sound. On her inaugural pop release, Leah collaborated with songwriter Sara Bares and songwriter/producer Simon Jonasson (Summer Walker, HWASA, Alan Walker)to create a catchy and relatable anthem that celebrates the importance of honest and empowering female friendships.

Leah elaborates on the inspiration behind the new song:“I have this stunning, gorgeous, smart, outgoing, funny as hell friend that had been seeing this guy for a few months, and it felt like every week I heard her tell me the most awful stories about how he treated her. I was always so confused as to WHAT her infatuation with him was because he… sucked! She is THE best person and friend and she deserves to be treated that way! The song is brutally honest but I believe it’s for the better because that’s what a real friend does.”

Hailing from North Carolina and now based in Nashville,Leah Marie Mason’s sound knows no bounds. Her musical journey began at eleven, belting out iconic covers in a classic rock band. When she found her way to Nashville in 2019 to attend Belmont University, she soaked in the city’s diverse music scene and quickly emerged as a rising star in the country-pop world. Her 2023debut EP,Honeydew & Hennessy, garnered millions of streamsand drew comparisons byPEOPLE Magazine to contemporaries like Taylor Swift, Kelsea Ballerini, and Kacey Musgraves.

Breaking away from the familiar, Leah ventured to Sweden last year to create her upcoming album,pushing the boundaries of her artistry and crafting a whole new sound. While undertaking this shift,Leah has still maintained her unique penchant for raw and vulnerable storytelling.

As Leah readies her latest offering, a collection of meticulously crafted tracks set to release soon, she invites you to join her on this musical journey. “My only hope is that it can inspire someone else as well,” Leah declares, as she continues to redefine pop and make her music accessible to all.

5. The Wandering Hearts – Letter To Myself

Source:The Wandering Hearts

British trio The Wandering Hearts released a new single, “Letter To Myself,” off of their forthcoming Chrysalis Records debut,Mother, out March 22nd.Motherwill be released digitally, on CD and LP, including exclusive, signed coloured vinyl and a limited number of test pressings. The album is available for pre-order nowHERE

LISTEN TO NEW SINGLE “LETTER TO MYSELF”HERE

A confessional, diaristic ballad reminiscing over an easier time through sheer melodies and bright organs. The soothing vocal lines paint dreamy tales of Americana, from trains to old towns to blue sky that remind you to slow down.“I was talking about my sister-in-law,”Wilcox revealed about “Letter To Myself,”“Every time I saw her, she’d be like, ‘I just turned 21, and I’m turning 22 next year’. She’s always inches away from the next big milestone..”

The Wandering Hearts recently announced the release of their new album,Mother, out March 22. Produced by Steve Milbourne (session credits for Shania Twain and Alanis Morissette), their Chrysalis Records debut is a handcrafted patchwork of folk-style storytelling, pop hooks and rock energy threaded together by their luminous signature harmonies. You could think of it as a long-lost seventies album originally made in Laurel Canyon and dusted off in some vintage London record store 50 years later.

The band recently embarked on a tour of US radio stations and performed special intimate shows at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC and WMOT’s Finally Friday live broadcast from Nashville’s 3rd & Lindsley. They will also tour the UK in March and April, dates below.

Mother, an exploration of motherhood and personal growth, captures the little moments that assume a much greater significance. Every memory holds the potential to last forever, responsibilities expand, yet joy does as well. The Wandering Hearts intimately explore this maternal transformation on their aptly titled third full-length offeringMother. The band, Tara Wilcox [vocals], A.J. Dean [vocals, acoustic guitar] and Francesca“Chess”Whiffin [vocals, mandolin], chronicle this season of growth and change across eleven tracks.

“I was pregnant when we started making the record, and Tara was pregnant when we finished it,” notes Chess. “During the process, we really found ourselves as a band. Motherhood has helped us grow and find meaning. It brought our writing and performing to a different level.”

The group worked out of Chess’s home studio in Darlington, drawing on everything from folk and rock. Surrounded by guitars, a vintage piano and classic equipment, the music gestated in a room affectionately dubbed,“The Music Womb.A.J. goes on, “This album started as a folk EP and grew into something entirely different. It has elements of folk, rock, blues, pop and more with our voices tying it all together. We were really just making an album for us. We think the result is the best music we’ve ever made.”

Earlier releases had brandished a bit of a subtle pop sheen. WithMother, The Wandering Hearts peeled back this layer, sanded it down and stripped the sound to its bare essentials—captivating lyrics, organic instrumentation, and, as always, starkly powerful harmonies. In doing so, they realized their vision at its purest and most powerful.

In the end, motherhood has ultimately enabled The Wandering Hearts to be themselves. “The album has all of the elements of who we are, but we’ve landed in a place that feels like us,” reflects Chess.

6. AKTHESAVIOR & sagun – Issues

Source:AKTHESAVIOR

AKTHESAVIOR and sagun have debuted “Issues”, the latest single from their upcoming joint album u r not alone and a pinnacle merger of the duo’s individual styles. Fresh off a string of recent guest-featured previews from the project – from last month’s collaboration with Pink Siifu titled “Humble,” to “Tetsuo’s Ways ft. Mick Jenkins” – “Issues” finds AK and sagun stripping it back and putting their talents at the forefront as a tandem. Swirling moody lo-fi and alt-hip hop into a song about meeting imperfections with empathy – the track arrives today along with a music video that captures its melancholy haze through the backdrop of LA’s Chinatown at dusk.

u r not alone officially releases on April 5, 2024 via Platoon, and features a studded lineup of guest collaborators – from the aforementioned Pink Siifu and Mick Jenkins, to Erick The Architect, A$AP Twelvyy, Jaws of Love (Kelcey Ayer of Local Natives), and Azizi Gibson. Comprised of fourteen tracks that blend AK & sagun’s worlds of hip-hop and lo-fi, the project meditates on self-actualization, perseverance through isolation and the search for community within a social landscape that feels increasingly disconnected.

“Issues was inspired by me wanting to experiment with singing, and when I heard this beat, I instantly felt like I should try something new with it,” says AK about Issues. “I teamed up with my friend Kenneth Cash, who helped me with the flow of the song. Once I figured that out, the words came to me naturally as I reflected on my current trials, tribulations and imperfections. We all have our issues that we go through in life but the important part is that we grow and learn from each of our obstacles and become a better version of ourselves.”

“Issues” marks the fourth offering from u r not alone, following “Humble feat. Pink Siifu,” “No Scarsand “Tetsuo’s Ways.” The latter of which, a collaboration with Mick Jenkins, draws inspiration from the cyberpunk anime film Akira as a parallel for a specific life experience: witnessing how the taste of power can corrupt a friendship. Together, the three released songs have caught the eyes of The FADER, Rolling Stone, FLOOD Magazine, Notion, Ones To Watch, COLORS, Cabbages and landed coveted placements on Apple Music (Flowetry, New in Hip-Hop), Spotify (New Joints), Amazon Music (PRSM, Breakthrough Hip-Hop) and TIDAL (Mellow Vibes, Hip-Hop Tranquilo) upon their releases.

From rap to lo-fi, to the thousands of miles between AK & sagun’s respective homes of Brooklyn and Nepal, u r not alone is a world-bridging album. Finding common ground over things like anime and the inspiration they draw from the natural world, the duo bonded and collaborated via FaceTime from opposite ends of the planet before eventually relocating to Los Angeles and meeting in-person for the first time this year.

Since the formation of The Underachievers with collaborator Issa Gold in 2011, AKTHESAVIOR has built a name for himself with a distinct brand of self-reflective lyricism and sonics inspired by psychedelia and New York hip-hop of the 90s. For over a decade, he’s delivered a consistent output albums and collaborations; including 2019’s Beast Coast album, Escape From New York, which included other powerhouse artists such as Joey Bada$$ and Flatbush Zombies. Launching his solo career with his debut mixtape Blessings in the Grey, AK has racked up 30+ million streams. Now on the heels of a sold-out 2022 tour with Erick the Architect, AK is currently out on a North American tour with Flatbush Zombies through December 2023.

Clocking in over 500+ million streams worldwide with several RIAA Gold-Certified records to his name, sagun has been an enigmatic linchpin of the lo-fi music scene since first emerging over six years ago with his debut song “I’ll Keep You Safe” featuring Shiloh Dynasty. Working with artists such as Pink Sweat$, Kali Claire, SYML and more, sagun translates the beauty of his surroundings into production while bringing out the best of his collaborators. Most recently, he contributed his producing and songwriting prowess to “wherever u r,” the buzzing new single from UMI and V of BTS that took the #1 global spot on iTunes in 24 hours, landed in the top 5 on Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’, was among the Top 5 Selling Songs on Billboard Charts, and has clocked over 60 million streams to-date.

This setting and storyline add depth to the video, giving audiences a glimpse into the artist’s experiences and newfound perspectives since his last project.

In a statement, Bryson Tiller explains, “I didn’t want this song or the visuals to be anything like what I’ve put out before. I was inspired by Miami’s nightlife and the strip club culture for this video — a different side of me that I didn’t know existed until I experienced this particular scene.”

The “Whatever She Wants” single and accompanying video are compelling and visual testaments to Bryson Tiller’s evolution as an artist. By venturing into uncharted territory, Bryson invites fans to join him on a journey that explores diverse dimensions of his creativity and personal growth.

11. Sam Evian – Rollin’ In

Source:Sam Evian

Today, in-demand producer Sam Evian, known for his work with Big Thief, Palehound, Blonde Redhead and Cass McCombs, releases “Rollin’ In” the second single from his forthcoming fourth studio album Plunge (March 22, Flying Cloud Recordings/ Thirty Tigers). “Rollin’ In” is accompanied by a music video, filmed on Super 8.

Premiered today viaFLOOD Magazine, “Rollin’ In” is a tender-hearted mid-tempo ballad that shimmers with saxophone and Rhodes, both played by Sam. The track is one of several on Plunge that examine Sam’s parents’ (who are also musicians) relationship and explore themes of family, love, drifting apart, and coming back together, all from different vantage points. Sam sings, “take a ride to the shore, to see the ponies running / is it real, or is it just wasted? / I can tell where life has gone, it’s just getting harder and harder to taste it.”

Says Sam Evian on the new track, ‘The song is a box of memories, and a meditation. I grew up on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina, and often went down to the ocean to commune with myself, a habit I picked up from my mother. It’s a reflection of that time of my life, and who I’ve become in the years since. I started writing about a simple relationship theme, but quickly realized I was examining myself and my own disillusionment with who I thought I would become, versus the person I am today.’

Sam continues, “Initially I did not plan on a sax solo, but Wayne Shorter passed away the day I was finishing the mix, so I felt inspired to put it in at the last minute. I did my best to pay tribute to his sensitivity, lyricism and restraint. I wanted it to feel like big rolling waves.”

Plunge is already gaining attention from Stereogum, Paste, Under The Radar, Brooklyn Vegan, FLOOD among others for its cathartic lyricism and warm production.

It was New Years Eve 2022, the night before Sam Evian started recordingPlunge.He invited his friends to his property in the Catskills, where he’d just painstakingly relocated and revamped his Flying Clouds Studios into a new barn on the property. Adrianne Lenker brought a jug of maple syrup from Vermont, Sufjan Stevens set off fireworks in the meadow, and at midnight, the group of friends cold-plunged into a nearby creek as it started snowing.

Tracked during the early winter months of 2023 over a 10-day period, thePlungesessions were nothing short of joyous. Joined by a group of his closest friends and collaborators (including Liam Kazar, Sean Mullins, El Kempner of Palehound and Adrianne Lenker of Big Thief), Evian set out with a wide-open approach. “No-one knew the songs or what the plan was. We kept it loose and fun. This was the spirit of the sessions. No headphones, no playback, minimal overdubs, or bleed. Fast and loose.”

Despite that sense of freedom, Evian came to the sessions with lyrical clarity: “I wrote the songs so that I could just play them and sing them on a guitar. I wanted them to be like really focused, classic songs.” Lyrically,Plungeis heavier than previous records, diving into a wide range of themes and subject matter. “Relationships stalling, failing, coming back together,” says Evian.

The result is Evian’s best album to date: a cathartic rock record that melds power pop, iridescent guitar, raucous psychedelia, and Evian’s now sought-after grooves. The music is both fresh and familiar, sonically inspired by his penchant for early 70s production and creatively propelled by the free-spirited process depicted in the Beatles documentaryGet Back,as well as his urge to let go of his own fastidious production instincts.

“I spend so much time trying to make perfect recordings for everyone else,” Evian remarks, “So it was a slight act of resistance to make something wild and kind of f*cked up for myself.”

Plungeis Evian’s first release on his own imprint, Flying Cloud Recordings, the new imprint of his Catskills-based studio. In 2017 Sam Evian decamped to the Catskills alongside his partner Hannah Cohen and their dog, Jan, creating an immersive recording experience, Flying Cloud Studios, tucked away in the mountains of upstate New York. Evian (née Sam Owens) has hosted/produced/engineered a slew of artists in his home studio including Big Thief (Grammy-nominated forCertainty), Palehound, Kate Bollinger, Blonde Redhead, Helena Deland and more.Plungeis his fourth LP and first partnered with Thirty Tigers.

Following a mission to“make music for you to cry/vibe to,”25-year-old North LondonerSOLOMONis firmly established as a major next wave talent with high profile collaborators and fans such asBROCKHAMPTON,Ice Spice,Kojey RadicalandTimbaland. Now,SOLOMONtakes the next step by sharing his new single ‘over’ (listen here).

‘over’ findsSOLOMONpurging the emotions that come with heartbreak into a cathartic confessional. Building from sparse acoustic guitar into punchy, R&B-tinged beats, ‘over’ feels as intimate as a closely guarded secret whileSOLOMON’sversatile vocal is the star of the show. Switching effortlessly between soulful high notes, a whispered croon and staccato rhymes, every line thatSOLOMONdelivers feels like an authentic outpouring of emotion.

SOLOMONsays: “A love song on Valentine’s Day? Way too predictable! That’s why I decided I’d go with an empowering bossa nova breakup song about being cheated on.”

Hailing from Kensal Rise,SOLOMONstarted playing guitar during early childhood and would often be the youngest performer at his local open mic night. After he started to write and produce his own songs in his teens, the attention around him was soon amplified, with a first flood of fascination onTikTok(his profile has now exceeded18.5 millionlikes) – the springboard for his own artist career.

SOLOMON’smusic is more than the sum of his influences, but similarly far-reaching: think timeless singer-songwriters and modern icons alike includingFINNEAS,JohnMayerandEdSheeran.Early tracks such as ‘listenup’ and ‘soreloser’ achieved his first impact, while hisKojeyRadicalcollab, ‘phases’, the ‘FORSTARTERSEP’ and his take onThePaperKites’ ‘Bloom’ have all kept his momentum bubbling. Moreover,BROCKHAMPTONsampled his track ‘robbery’ for ‘LISTERINE’, whileIceSpicedrew upon ‘phases’ for her own ‘On The Radar’. Yet for all those big moments,SOLOMONis also unafraid to showcase his creativity in skeletal form, as shown in the ‘VOICEMEMOS’ set; an ever-growing playlist of short track snippets, designed to be sampled and remixed by other creatives.

Following on from a sold out headline show at London’s Oslo last year,SOLOMONwill tonight commence aNorthAmericantour as special guest toPinkSweat$.

Entitled, “STEP BY STEP,” Jordan perfectly encapsulates the feel-good vibe of the family cookout, those gatherings where good food, music and love comes in abundance. Influenced by the likes of Beyonce’s “We Like To Party” and Earth Wind & Fire’s “Let’s Groove,” he delivers a bold and effortlessly cool, funk infused party-starter that will undoubtedly get everyone at the function up on their feet. He says, “Drake once famously said “I’m just here making all the music that they party to”— I hope this song becomes one of those that goes down in history as one of those moments.” The song’s cheerful video is premiering now via PAPER Magazine – watchHERE.

Aptly titledWelcome Home, Kid!Jordan Mackampa intimately invites his emerging and existing fans to get acquainted with a 29-year-old deconstructed and at their most intimate on his sophom*ore album. This record is quick to lean into Jordan’s second coming as an artist and is instantly bold in its canvassing of the new artist. Caressed in an unapologetic brand of soul, is the project’s introduction “Playground.” Having entered therapy in 2021, Jordan advocates for the relationship he has with his inner child and how healthy it has become.“A lot of this project was the catharsis that came with dealing with that part of me, understanding why I used to not appreciate being a child and love that part of life, we’re dealing with that now.”

Overall,Welcome Home, Kid!acts as a much-needed embrace for both Jordan Mackampa and listeners. Both nourishing in its musical depth and in examination of self, it reveals the context behind why Jordan is the artist he is and the person. Ultimately Mackampa provides a refreshing quintessential edition to 2024’s first quarter – canons of funk, R&B, gospel, and soul are paired with ardently honest lyricism and Jordan’s aptitude for using his voice as the vast instrument that it is.“This project is one I want people to feel, it’s a project I want to show myself on,” he shares earnestly. Luckily for him,Welcome Home, Kid!is a potent leap into the light.

This spring Jordan is set to take to stages across the U.S. and Canada on his epic headline “Homecoming Tour.” Get your tickets below to catch his spellbinding live show where he will be performing songs fromWelcome Home, Kid!for the first time.

DANIEL NOAH MILLER ONDISINTEGRATION:

“I wrote this album in the shadow of several break-ups in my life: with my romantic partner, with my longtime creative partner, and with the East Coast, where I’ve lived my entire life between DC and New York. It was a sea change, like many lived during the pandemic, and amidst this movement I turned thirty.There is a notion when you’re young that crossing that threshold will bring with it some undefined wisdom.But, I felt more hopeless than I had in years. I was racked with guilt over the ending of these relationships, deep in solitude, and lacking purpose. I began these songs timidly, in some attempt to reclaim a former version of myself. I wrote the majority of them alone, sitting cross-legged on my couch, whispering out the melodies. I changed the way I sang, I accessed my empathy, and slowly the ball began to roll.”

The 13 songs and 40-minute film play like a multimedia primer on healing and wholeness, spirituality and community. The gritty yet lavish soundscape provided byunJUST(of the mighty Hieroglyphics crew) is a collage of educational children’s films from the 70’s and 80’s chopped and flipped in the classic ASR-10 sampler. The warm, unquantized sound is a perfect bed for Ali’s dense and poignant musings on God, death, empire, and beauty.

This music marks a new sonic territory for Brother Ali, but just as important to the project is the visual identity created by unJUST. A life-long fan of hand-drawn illustration and cartoons, he created a dynamic animated canvas for visual storytelling to accompany the concepts Ali has written about. InLove & Service, each song features a unique visual style meant to harken back to the days of pen scribblings and charcoal drawings. These are not the slick, hyper-realistic computer graphics that define most modern animation. This is textured, choppy art with fingerprints and smudges.

Brother Ali:“Nothing fuels creativity like new perspective. The opportunity to step outside my comfort zone has changed me forever, and music is pouring out of me like never before.”

Brother Ali left Minneapolis in 2020 in the midst of a fiery uprising, global pandemic, and music industry shut down, taking his family to live in Istanbul Türkiye. Straddling two continents, this city has been the perfect home for Ali as he forges a new understanding of his purpose, relationships, and self. Now he returns with a new project to share what’s on his mind and his heart.

About“Everything,” Yelawolfstated,“I don’t care if people f*cking sleep on me. I’m still the same old me. I’m not worried about any of these fools. That’s the real. The video is amazing. With the black-and white, it’s very Ansel Adams. We have beautiful cars, and everyone is well-dressed juxtaposed to these projects. I’m just speaking my mind.”
