FROM ‘RUNAWAY’ THE NEW ALBUM OUT AUGUST 31ST
ALSO CONTAINS RADIO 2 PLAYLISTED LEAD SINGLE ‘HELL OR HIGH WATER’

PRE-ORDER

‘Heart To Love’ is the stunning new single from Passenger, available to stream today and as an instant grat with pre-orders of the Ivor Novello Award-winning singer-songwriter’s new album ‘Runaway’, which is released on August 31st on Black Crow Records via Cooking Vinyl.

“’Heart to Love’ is a song I’ve tried to record a few times and for whatever reason it just wouldn’t work,” says Passenger, aka Brighton’s Mike Rosenberg. “Finally we’ve recorded it in a way that it sounds exciting and how I always imagined it. It’s a simple song really, about trying to find the right person, which is probably something that everyone can relate to.”

The song’s evocative video was shot on Las Vegas’ famous Strip by long-time collaborator Jarrad Seng during a three-week road trip the pair undertook earlier this year, filming promos for every track on ‘Runaway’.

‘Heart To Love’ is the second single to be lifted from ‘Runway’, and follows the Radio 2 playlisted lead single ‘Hell Or High Water’, which has received over 14 million streams across Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube.

‘Runaway’ is released on CD, Vinyl LP and download with Deluxe 2CD, 2LP and Deluxe Digital formats available that include Live Acoustic versions of the album recorded across North America. Pre-order the album now and instantly receive four tracks – both singles plus title track ‘Runaway’ and ‘Why I Can’t Change.’

Passenger’s 2016 album, ‘Young As The Morning Old As The Sea’ entered the UK charts at No.1, ahead of Bruce Springsteen, and the subsequent tour saw Rosenberg play his largest headline tour to date with a total audience of over 1.4 million across 29 countries, including playing to over 13,500 people at Amsterdam’s ZiggoDome. Passenger will support the release of ‘Runaway’ with an extensive world tour, beginning in Edinburgh on August 29th with a sold-out show at Queens Hall. His dates in London, Manchester, Birmingham, and Brighton are also sold-out. Support on all UK dates comes from Lucy Rose.

Passenger is one of the most successful UK artists of this decade, a streaming phenomenon who has had well in excess of a billion streams on Spotify. The video for his Ivor Novello Award-winning single ‘Let Her Go’ has been viewed almost two billion times. The single reached No.1 in 19 countries, with the accompanying album ‘All The Little Lights’ achieving platinum or multi-platinum status in 11 countries.

‘Runaway’ finds Passenger embracing the epic: the melodies are unforgettable, the choruses colossal. The album, Rosenberg’s tenth in 11 years, was recorded between the UK and Australia with his co-producer, Chris Vallejo, but its aesthetic is North American.  “My dad is American,” Rosenberg explains, “and we used to go over every other summer when we were kids. I always loved it. I guess I was seduced by it a little bit. It was such a culture shock coming from England.”

As well as the Las Vegas-set promo for ‘Heart To Love’, three other ‘Runaway’ videos are available to view now: lead single ‘Hell Or High Water’, shot in the epic landscapes of a series of National Parks; the sublime ‘Why I Can’t Change’, which is seeped in influences such as the Traveling Wilburys and early Fleetwood Mac; and album title track ‘Runaway’, which features Rosenberg running through spectacular locations including Death Valley and Monument Valley, Lombard Street in San Francisco, and New York’s High Line. All tracks are also available as instant grats with album pre-orders.

Jessica Cameron, @Thisfunktional Walkthrough #FOXHorrorRewind

The free experience will allow Los Angeles natives to step into worlds of horror classics old and new including “THE FLY,” “THE HILLS HAVE EYES,” “28 DAYS LATER” and “CARRIE”

Written by Jesus Figueroa (@Thisfunktional)

Actress, director, producer and Scream Queen Jessica Cameron and Jesus Figueroa, @Thisfunktional of Thisfunktional.com, walk through pop-up haunt FOX’s “Horror Rewind,” open Oct. 13 to 15 in Downtown Los Angeles.

The video walkthrough just shows a look into the experience which attendees get to be a part of.

The scare actors are fantastic, from the “Tour Guide,” played by Jillian Clare, to several monsters and Carrie, the experience feels like a seamless mesh of some iconic horror movies.

The free pop-up event, inspired by the 19 re-releases of horror classics on Blu-ray and DVD from the Fox Home Entertainment catalog with brand new packaging designed by digital artist Orlando Arocena, available now, which is in the Art District of downtown Los Angeles is a fun and thrilling roughly 10-minute immersive experience.

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment brings some their most terrifying horror films to life when “HORROR REWIND” arrives in Downtown Los Angeles the weekend of Friday the 13th. 

Taking place over the course of three nights, this immersive experience is produced by The Great Company in collaboration with the creators of premiere interactive horror theater Delusion.

In a secluded corner of the Arts District of Los Angeles, a deranged horror movie super fan, has created a living, breathing installation in homage to his four favorite films (THE FLY, THE HILLS HAVE EYES, 28 DAYS LATER and CARRIE). 

In tribute to these films, he has trapped innocent civilians inside and transformed them into demented and deformed monsters, forced to live-out his most terrifying celluloid nightmares.

For those who make it out alive, forget what your mother told you and stop by the ominous van parked outside. 

There you’ll be able to feed your own macabre obsessions and purchase any of 19 brand new Blu-rays featuring collectible packaging cover designs by acclaimed digital artist Orlando Arocena.  Limited edition posters of Arocena’s work will also be available as a gift with purchase while supplies last.

Fans can also purchase the full line-up of the Halloween faceplates from Arocena here: bit.ly/FoxHalloweenWM.

Admission is free but ticketing is EXTREMELY limited and on a FIRST-COME-FIRST SERVE BASIS, Oct. 13 to 15 from 8 p.m. to midnight.

Guests must register in advance at HORRORREWIND.EVENTBRITE.COM to receive an appointment day and time.

A limited number of standby tickets will also be available via the above website.

Be sure to use #FOXHorrorRewind to share your experience.

Part of the fun is enjoying it with people who enjoy the fear, such as Jessica Cameron who joined for the scary fun.

Cameron and the rest of the group were thrilled at the opportunity to jump in and the not only walkthrough but actively be part of the story room after room.

NEW MUSIC: PENTATONIX | PTX, Vol. IV – Classics

image1

You guys!!!! We have been blessed with another EP from our favorite a capella group!

Pentatonix released their new EP, PTX Vol. IV – Classics, today April 7 and – no surprise – it’s incredible! We got to see their music video for ‘Imagine’ (posted below) a few weeks ago and it was fantastic. Their vocals were great and the message in the video was powerful. One of my favorite things about this group, besides their vocal talent, is the fact that their videos are so low budget but are better than most big budget videos. They showcase their talent rather than distracting us with nonsense lol.

So check out their ‘Imagine’  and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ (released today!) videos below and let me know what you think!

Also…if you’re thinking of heading out to see them LIVE (and I strongly suggest you do), you can read my review of their show here in South Florida by clicking the link below:

Zayn Malik’s Debut Solo Single “Pillowtalk” Has Arrived!

IMG_2709It’s the moment all One Direction fans dreaded!  The moment when the 23-year-old would drop his first solo single since leaving One Direction mid-tour in March 2015.

Now, as a woman in her 30’s, I’ve had my share of boy band heartbreaks!  Nsync broke up.  Need I say more?  Ok, maybe I can.  NKOTB split up for years (and got back together so maybe there’s hope for a reunion when they’re in their 40’s Directioners!), Backstreet Boys lost Kevin for a while (and got him back), etc.  It happens, and it stinks, but we saw this happen with Justin Timberlake, didn’t we?  He needed something more than the cookie cutter boy band image, so he went off on his own and he’s done amazingly well!  Don’t get me wrong…I’m still holding out hope for a reunion though…

With Zayn’s debut single, it’s definitely edgier than we’re used to seeing from him.  WAY EDGIER!  I actually really like it…with the exception of knowing that my 11-year-old niece will end up watching it and have a million questions (like why it’s called “Pillowtalk” in the first place lol).  The video was released on January 29, just 2 days after band released their nostalgic video for “History.”  Coincidence?  Quite possibly.

In any case, check out One Direction’s newest video and then check out Zayn’s debut as a solo artist.  Let me know what you think!  Tweet me @kristin0409!
