Un po’ di musica prima di abbandonarvi al sabato sera ?
Sade has released her first new music in eight years, with the song Flower of the Universe, taken from the soundtrack to A Wrinkle in Time – Ava DuVernay’s big-budget sci-fi fantasy starring Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and more.
Backed by pretty acoustic guitar and almost eerie wordless backing vocals, Sade delivers a typically spellbinding vocal line. The sentimental lyric is aimed at a child, described as a “flower of the universe”.
The song is paired with a remix by No ID, famous for his production work with Kanye West, Jay-Z and Common, who adds some subtle drum programming.
All that we love deeply becomes a part of us…
First Aid Kit is a Swedish folk duo that consists of the sisters Klara (vocals/guitar) and Johanna Söderberg (vocals/keyboards/Autosharp/bass guitar). When performing live, the duo are accompanied by a drummer, a pedal steel guitarist and recently a keyboard player.
In 2008, they became internationally known by their You Tube video cover of the Fleet Foxes’s song “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song” that gained significant Internet popularity.
They have now released four albums, two EPs and a handful of singles. In 2015 they were nominated for a Brit Award as one of the five. – wikipedia
A very young Rudolf Schenker founded Scorpions in the provincial, post-war Hannover in 1965. Fifty years on, the German rockers released Return To Forever to coincide with the band’s golden anniversary.
This song finds the band reflecting on their long career.
Vocalist Klaus Meine said: “In the end, it tells our story. We’ve built this house called Scorpions brick by brick and often quite arduously. From the first days in Hannover, the first concerts abroad, until this very day”, he continued. “However, building the house was never just cumbersome, but joyful as well. The joy of music, the joy of having experienced and still experiencing it all, the joy of – and the thankfulness for – the fans’ affection. We have been working hard for this dream, but we’re thankful as well for having been able to live it, and for still being able to live it today.”
Jupiter Calling is the seventh album by The Corrs, released on 10 November 2017 by East West Records. It is their first new material in two years, following White Light (2015).
It was produced by T Bone Burnett, and recorded at RAK Studios in London. It was promoted by a show at the Royal Albert Hall on 19 October, for which tickets were made available on 15 September.
Following the release of White Light in 2015, the band toured the UK and Ireland in January 2016, and continental Europe in mid-2016 on their White Light Tour. Andrea Corr spoke to The Sun in January 2016, stating that the band were not planning to record a follow-up soon after, “as long as we’re all happy to continue. And we are all very happy.”
“New Year’s Day” – lifted from the group’s album This House is Not For Sale, represents renewal with lyrics that vow to seize the day as he sings “let’s toast to new beginnings”.
The video – featuring keyboardist David Bryan, drummer Tico Torres, guitarist Phil X, and bassist Hugh McDonald – is directed by Alex Howard, and focuses on seamen setting sail on a ship across the ocean on the Susan Miller.
The clip – which cuts to the band performing on a dock – is stunning visually, with one shot of the ship seemingly ready to sail off the edge of the earth and a final shot of the boat in a bottle.
Originally envisioned as a 6/8 waltz tempo, the song took shape in the studio as Torres counted it in and the band played it together, Bon Jovi said in a release.
Say something, I’m giving up on you
I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you
Anywhere I would’ve followed you
Say something, I’m giving up on you
And I… will swallow my pride
You’re the one that I love
And I’m saying Goodbye…
Don’t cry, snowman, not in front of me
Who’ll catch your tears if you can’t catch me, darling
If you can’t catch me, darling
Don’t cry, snowman, don’t leave me this way
A puddle of water can’t hold me close, baby
Can’t hold me close, baby
I want you to know that I’m never leaving
Cause I’m Mrs. Snow, ’till death will be freezing
Yeah, you are my home, my home for all seasons
So come on let’s go…
