Gabrielle Aplin has released the beautiful video for her new single ‘Nothing Really Matters’.

The enchanting video is an artistic representation of the varying degrees of mental state that come with self-acceptance.

Regarding the video Gabrielle says, “It was really great to work with director Joe Connor again. I wanted to make something that represented the different mind-sets and feelings involved with letting go, or opening up and taking a risk. Reflecting the anxiety, excitement, confidence, restlessness and hesitance. Joe drew inspiration from the single artwork as a starting point to create a video that felt like a series of still lifes and photographic portraiture brought to life with the dancers, dressed in padlocks and keys to symbolize unlocking and opening up.”

‘Nothing Really Matters’ features gleaming glacial production from Lostboy (Mabel, Anne-Marie, Liam Payne) and finds Gabrielle celebrating positivity and self-love.

Explaining the single Gabrielle says, “‘Nothing Really Matters’ is about the battle between the excitement of wanting to open up, and the fear of opening up. I was having one of those days where I questioned the validity and importance of everything around me, and how much time, energy and thought I gave to things that really, didn’t matter. It’s about focusing on what’s really important to you.

“I wanted to push myself vocally, challenge the way I think about structure in a song, experiment with how I say what I need to say lyrically, whilst still focusing on what it is that makes me the artist I am. This song has really pushed me and surprised me and I’m so excited to release it into the world!”

‘Nothing Really Matters’ follows the release of ‘My Mistake’ late last year, which saw Gabrielle strip back on production and bare her soul on the searingly honest and beautiful piano ballad.

The songs are taken from her forthcoming third album, due for release later this year through AWAL. The major global deal is a new partnership between AWAL and Gabrielle’s own successful label Never Fade Records.

The wonderful diversity of Gabrielle Aplin as both a pop star and songwriter are displayed in the new songs. Whether she is singing a stripped back piano ballad or a huge pop song, her lyrical content and emotive vocal delivery remain at the forefront of her music.

The singles mark an exciting new chapter for Gabrielle Aplin as she is set to release her brand new album, which features some of her most personal lyrical moments alongside a breadth of music and influences not yet heard from her before.

Fans will be able to get the first taste of her new music live at summer festivals this year. Gabrielle Aplin has been announced to perform at Glastonbury Festival on the Acoustic Stage as well as Boardmasters Festival and OnBlackheath. She has more live dates to be announced soon.

LONDON & CARDIFF LIVE SHOWS IN APRIL

IMG_7680Hannah Grace has released her new single ‘The Bed You Made’ through Never Fade Records. The track is the first to be taken from her new EP of the same name, out April 5th ahead of her headline shows in London and Cardiff, and was featured in Spotify’s New Music Friday today.

Subtle, minimal instrumentation provides the backdrop for Hannah’s incredible and emotive vocals on ‘The Bed You Made’. The soft piano tones accompany rich, moving vocal crescendos, which accentuate the track’s touching lyrics. The video for the single is filmed from the perspective of Hannah’s ex, following her in a continuous shot while she explains how she’ll be better on her own.

“I wrote ‘The Bed You Made’ after being hurt by someone I loved,” says Hannah. “It is definitely the most honest and raw song I’ve ever written and I’m actually a little nervous to share it with the world, but writing the song helped me to reach the conclusion that I am ok on my own. Heartbreak is hard, but ultimately I think if we are good to ourselves we’ll be alright in the end. So, this song is for anyone who’s been cheated on by an ex, I hope this song can give you the courage to be okay on your own.“

Throughout the rest of the EP, Hannah’s incredible vocal abilities take centre stage amid minimalist musicality, with stripped back and raw production echoing its lyrical content. The result is a moving and timeless collection of tracks that ranges between the uplifting and gloriously cathartic. The EP was co-written with her friends and collaborators Martin Luke Brown, Gabrielle Aplin and Jessica Sharman.

‘The Bed You Made’ follows the release of previous singles ‘With You’ and ‘Oh River’, both of which proved hits at radio, with plays from both Dermot O’Leary on his Radio 2 show and BBC Radio Wales respectively. She’s also appeared on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show and Zoe Ball’s ITV programme, in addition to a slot at the BBC Biggest Weekend for Radio 2 in Perth, Scotland.

Hannah Grace closed 2018 with the release of the collaborative Christmas EP December alongside Gabrielle Aplin. The lead single and title track featured on 14 ‘New Music Friday’ Spotify playlists, and was spotlighted in the UK and US Top 10, as well as being played on Radio 2. The EP also featured three beautiful covers of classic Christmas tracks.

Hannah first caught the attention of Never Fade label owner Gabrielle Aplin through her covers uploaded onto YouTube. Her covers have since gone on to win over even more high profile supporters and Gabrielle signed her to Never Fade Records, which is distributed worldwide by AWAL.

In 2017 Hannah garnered praise from Lady Gaga after posting a cover of her hit ‘Million Reasons’, which provoked Gaga to tweet the video and call Hannah a “superstar”. Meanwhile in the same year her cover of ‘Praise You’ soundtracked the Lloyds Bank TV advert and clocked up over 3 million streams.

‘The Bed You Made’ is the latest taste of brand new music from Hannah, with her show stopping performance setting the precedent for the year ahead when she is set to turn even more heads.

ANNOUNCES LIVE SHOWS
8TH APRIL – CLWB IFOR BACH, CARDIFF
9TH APRIL – CAMDEN ASSEMBLY, LONDON

Hannah Grace has shared the video for her new single, ‘With You’, as well as announcing two shows at London’s Camden Assembly and Cardiff’s Clwb Ifor Bach in April.

A vibrant palette of color and emotional sentiment and an atmospheric and touching interpretation of the track, the video visualizes the healing power of companionship and the importance of being there for those in need.

“The music video for ‘With You’ was inspired by the Japanese art ‘Kintsugi’ – repairing broken objects with gold,” explains Hannah. “As a philosophy it treats breakage as part of the history of an object rather than something to disguise or hide and I just love this! I wanted to also get this idea across through movement. With the help of an amazing choreographer Simon we put together some movements that convey my friends being there for me when I’m broken and the routine shows them pulling me through, holding & physically supporting me.  I’ve always wanted to move in a music video and it was amazing to get to work with such great dancers!” 

Already proving a radio hit, including hitting the A-List on BBC Radio Wales, ‘With You’ is a bold demonstration of Hannah’s jaw-dropping soulful vocals among a stirring jazz-influenced backing of horns, piano and beautiful harmonies.

‘With You’ follows the release of her single ‘Oh River’ last year. The beautiful ballad saw Hannah stun listeners with her incredible vocals, which saw the likes of Dermot O’Leary and his team clear space on his Radio 2 show to share her voice. She’s also appeared on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show and Zoe Ball’s ITV programme, in addition to a slot at the BBC Biggest Weekend for Radio 2 in Perth, Scotland.

Gabrielle Aplin and Hannah Grace have released a collaborative Christmas EP December through Never Fade Records. The pair performed together at the Never Fade Christmas Party at Union Chapel on Dec 4th.

The four-track December EP features the brand new song and title-track, written and performed by Gabrielle Aplin and Hannah Grace. It’s a beautiful piano-led ballad showcasing the duo’s perfect pairing of stunning songwriting and vocals.

The December EP also features magnificent covers of classic Christmas songs including ‘River’ by Joni Mitchell, Elvis Presley and Martina McBride’s ‘Blue Christmas’ and ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ originally sung by Judy Garland.

Regarding the collaboration Gabrielle Aplin says, “I’m really happy to finally have a song out with my friend Hannah Grace. We’ve sang together for years so it was great to finally work on something new together. We’ve been wanting to collaborate on a Christmas EP for such a long time!”

Speaking about the release Hannah Grace says, “We’re so excited to share ‘December’ with the world. We got to make the EP with a long time collaborator of both of ours, Luke Potashnick, and that made the recording process so fun and special. This EP means a lot to us and we cannot wait for everyone to hear it!”

Gabrielle Aplin and Hannah Grace have come together after a friendship that began many years ago through a shared love of music and songwriting. Their individual artist projects have always been intertwined and this year Hannah Grace signed to Never Fade Records, a label Gabrielle Aplin founded in 2010.

A joint project featuring Gabrielle and Hannah had always been a dream and last year at the annual Never Fade Records Christmas Party the idea of the collaborative Christmas EP was born.

Gabrielle Aplin and Hannah Grace brought the December EP to life at 2018’s Never Fade Christmas Party, a celebration of Never Fade Records and its friends, also including the likes of Lauren Aquilina, Lewis Watson, Orla Gartland, Sonny and more.

The release of the December EP precedes Hannah Grace’s forthcoming single ‘With You’, which will be released in January.

The EP also follows the Gabrielle Aplin’s return last week with her brand new single ‘My Mistake’, the first taste of her forthcoming third album due out next year and the first release on her new worldwide record deal with AWAL.

‘My Mistake’ was released on Wednesday (Nov 28th) to a great reaction across the board of fans and media alike. It featured on 18 ‘New Music Friday’ Spotify playlists across the world including the UK and US, while it has received strong critical praise from the likes of Billboard, Sunday Times Culture and The Sun alongside early Radio 2 support from Dermot O’Leary. The gorgeous video has already clocked up 200,000 views.
