NEW ALBUM JOYFUL
COMING SPRING 2018
ON KIDINAKORNER/INTERSCOPE RECORDS

Multi-platinum selling X Ambassadors have released a stunning stripped-back version of their single ‘Ahead Of Myself’.

This flawless rendition comes before the band kickstart their European headline tour tonight with a show at a near sold-out (1700 capacity) Brixton Electric. This is their first visit back to the UK since their sold-out show at London’s ULU in August and appearances at Reading and Leeds Festival last year.

The band, who are best known for their smash hits ‘Renegades’, ‘Unsteady’, and their recent collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly and Bebe Rexha on the chart single ‘Home’, are set to release Joyful, the follow-up to their 2015 gold certified breakthrough album VHS, via Kidinakorner/Interscope Records this Spring.

As well as ‘Ahead Of Myself’, the trio have shared from the album the soulful title-track ‘Joyful’ and the latest single ‘Don’t Stay’. All three tracks come with videos that were filmed live, capturing the incredible vocals of frontman Sam Harris and the precise playing of band members Casey Harris (keys) and Adam Levin (drummer).

Having emerged out as one of the hottest upcoming bands in 2016, breaking into the UK Top 40, collaborating with top names artists such as Eminem, Tom Morello and Imagine Dragons and accumulating multi-platinum sales, X Ambassadors continue spreading joy through their soulful, alternative music and remain one of the most successful, yet under the radar US bands around.

TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF “HOME” BY NICK JONAS FROM FERDINAND SOUNDTRACK

TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX FILM ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF

“HOME” BY ACTOR, MULTI-PLATINUM AND GRAMMY NOMINATED SINGER NICK JONAS FROM FERDINAND SOUNDTRACK

Original song from the forthcoming animated feature released today

 

Twentieth Century Fox today announced the release of “Home” an original song by Nick Jonas from the forthcoming animated feature FERDINAND.

“I’ve always wanted to write an original song for a film,” says Jonas. “When they showed me the materials of the movie, FERDINAND, a story I was familiar with, I was thrilled.”

FERDINAND tells the story of a giant bull with a big heart. After being mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and torn from his home. Determined to return to his family, he rallies a misfit team on the ultimate adventure. Set in Spain, Ferdinand proves you can’t judge a bull by its cover.

Jonas says “Home” encompasses the film’s theme of acceptance. “I wrote this song with good friends of mine Justin Tranter and Nick Monson,” says Jonas. “And we wrote about feeling accepted and feeling loved, wherever that place is for you. For me it’s home, it’s my family, people I have closest to me; and the experiences we’ve shared.”

FERDINAND is directed by Carlos Saldanha, the director of “Rio” and inspired by the beloved book “The Story of Ferdinand” by Munro Leaf and Robert Lawson. The heartwarming animated comedy adventure features an all-star cast that includes John Cena, Kate McKinnon, Gina Rodriguez, Anthony Anderson and many more. It will be released by Twentieth Century Fox on December 15, 2017. The film’s soundtrack will be release by Island Records on December 1, 2017.

April: Day Two | What place do you consider your home?

YoursTruly

 

Good morning, peeps!

I’m still catching up on what will be an informative month lol. As a short reminder, April is my birthday month and, in an attempt to let you all get to know me a little better, I’ll be writing once a day in response to a writing prompt.

Day Two’s prompt is: What place do you consider your home?

This is a tricky question to answer! I’ve lived in Miami, FL for the past 27 years. My family moved here when I was about to turn 6 for a job that my dad was hired to do. I have an awful memory, so I don’t remember much from my childhood, but I remember not wanting to leave my friends and family in New Jersey.

I was born in Glen Ridge, NJ and lived my first years of life in Bloomfield. It’s a small town where everyone knew everyone. We lived on a dead-end street that always had kids outside playing. We had no cell phones, no computers . . . we were kids. Our sources of entertainment came from playing outside, sliding down our driveways on skateboards, etc. It was a GREAT time to be a kid. I was the baby on the block with two older brothers and a whole street full of unofficial ones.

I still have four wonderful aunts in New Jersey and up until a few years ago, the best grandparents in the world lived there too.

So to answer this question truthfully . . . even though I’ve been in Miami for the past 27 years, I still consider New Jersey home. People are friendlier, things are simpler and everything just feels nostalgic – like home. Not to mention the fact that I miss the cold weather (yes, I said it!). Eventually I might even consider moving back to my roots!
