Sargent also made a short film following the band in Thailand around the making of their third album ‘Anthems For Doomed Youth’.

Amy Winehouse: 10 Great Unreleased Songs


Following the release of the posthumous rarities compilation Lioness: Hidden Treasures, label executives claimed the vaults were empty – having destroyed any further demos for her incomplete third record of original material. Despite this, a number of high-quality tracks have surfaced on bootlegs and online over the years, lovingly shared by fans desperate for the album that never was. In advance of the fifth anniversary of Winehouse’s passing, take a listen to a career-spanning selection of the singer’s unreleased gems. 

long day
I’m not a girl trying to be a star or trying to be anything besides a musician,” Winehouse once said in an early interview. “I don’t think I’m gonna be at all famous. I don’t think I could handle it. I’d probably go mad.” With this insight into her psyche, the lyrics to “Long Day” become even more poignant. Penned following the release of Frank, her 2003 major-label debut, it’s a portrait of a reluctant public figure, already crippled by her notoriety. “I’m digging myself into a hole and these days I just work,” she sings over a deceptively breezy backing track. “When once I had so much soul and lately I’ve forgotten who I am.” Trading her trademark humor for stark clarity, the words foreshadow her fate.

“Jazz n’ Blues”

Also known as “Money (No More Jazz n’ Blues),” this slow jam is quite possibly the oldest known Winehouse song to surface. It reportedly dates back to her 2001 writing collaboration with Edward Bigham, two years before the release of Frank. With sparse instrumental backing, it sounds more like a sketch than a fully realized recording as she sings about her desire to “throw my cash away” and “blow it all on bags and shoes” – a topic she would revisit on “Trilby.” Her vocal delivery lacks the unique phrasing and power of her future work, but the track is a fascinating look at a diva developing her style. As the title suggests, two of her favorite genres are dominant even at this early stage.

Nick Cave talks about dead of teenage son Arthur for the first time in new trailer video


Nick Cave alludes to the death of his teenage son Arthur and the impact that the tragedy had on him in a trailer for his forthcoming album and 3D concert film. 

One More Time With Feeling is set be part of a global cinema event on September 8, with the album ‘Skeleton Tree’ set to follow at midnight the day after. You can watch footage of the trailer below.

In the trailer ler, Cave says: “What happens when an event occurs that is so catastrophic [is] that you just change.”

“You change from the known person, to an unknown person,” he continues. “So that when you look at yourself in the mirror, you recognise the person that you were but the person inside the skin is a different person.”

15-year-old Arthur Cave died in July 2015 after falling from a 60ft cliff in Ovingdean Gap, East Sussex. An inquest found that he had taken LSD prior to his death and that he suffered a fractured skull, broken legs and bleeding on the brain.

A statement from Nick and wife Susie Cave issued at the time of their son’s death read: “Our son Arthur died on Tuesday evening. He was our beautiful, happy loving boy. We ask that we be given the privacy our family needs to grieve at this difficult time.”

Artists including The Flaming Lips, Belle & Sebastian, Cat Power, Warpaint and more paid their respects to the Cave family following the death.

Watch The Beatles new Cirque Du Soleil video for While My Guitar Gently Weeps


The Beatles have authorised a new video for ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ to mark the tenth anniversary of their Cirque Du Soleil show.

The Beatles Love opened in 2006 in Las Vegas and is still hosted at the Mirage Hotel in the city. 

The video for the ‘Love Version’ of ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ highlights new performances within The Beatles Love. It’s directed by performance artists Dandypunk, Leah Moyer and Andre Kasten.

The remix on the video is the ‘Love Version’ of ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ and centres on string arrangements made by The Beatles producer Sir George Martin for the ‘Love’ album accompanying Cirque Du Soleil’s show. Released in 2006, ‘Love’ was among the final work completed by Martin before his death in March.

The video also coincides news that The Beatles’ music has been streamed over one billion times since their music was placed on streaming services in December 2015. 

‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ was originally written by George Harrison and was released on The Beatles self-titled album in 1968. Its lead guitar is by an uncredited Eric Clapton. It was inspired by Harrison’s interest in Chinese philosophical book I Ching about the concept of fate and interconnectedness.

Jamie T has unveiled his new single ‘Tinfoil Boy’

The track was premiered on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show at 7.30pm this evening (June 29). 

out the track he said: “It was recorded slightly differently. We went to Detroit and did a session out there. That’s where the track came from and it was recorded in a different place under slightly different rules which helped it sound a bit different. Hopefully that comes across. I wanted to put something out that was kind of claustrophobic.” 

He added: “I was playing around with a lot of pedals and I was listening a lot to Rage Against The Machine’s album and just getting blown away by how exciting it is. That explains the rocky feel.” 

The singer also confirmed that the song features a monologue from actress Florence Bell.

He added: “She’s an old friend of mine from college. I had this idea to sample which I did a lot on the last record. It wasn’t such a good idea this time around. So I got some friends, actors and actresses to come in and do some monologues. It was a lot of fun.”

The singer, whose real name is Jamie Treays, tweeted news of a new single earlier today. You can listen to the track below. It will be officially released at midnight.

This is their legacy and we know deep in our hearts that the boys would want the world to listen to the music they poured everything into. This was only the beginning for them and these nine songs were written with every intention to be shared, heard and, most of all, enjoyed.

Musicians Sign Petition To Combat YouTubes Copyright Loophole


Just this past week, YouTube has gone through some heat having to deal with copyright loopholes.
The music industry’s most prominent musicians have commented on YouTube’s copyright limitations. Some have accused this media outlet of profiting off stolen, unpaid content. According to Billboard, over 180 musicians have signed a petition, hoping congress will ratify YouTube’s correlation with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Kings of Leon, Vince Staples, Paul McCartney, and Taylor Swift are among the artists that have signed the petition. However, some artists have had no problem speaking their mind about the subject matter.

Patrick Carney, drummer for The Black Keys commented, “Give me five minutes on YouTube and I probably can find 250 songs that are available which the artist isn’t getting paid for. At least.”
The DMCA was ratified to protect video outlets such as YouTube to from copyright infringement liability as long as they take down notices from rights holders. Since YouTube is such a huge video-sharing website, many uploads that violate this policy often go undetected on their radar.
YouTube has not been quiet about this affair. YouTube responded to the criticism by pointing out to the artists the $3 Billion that is paid out to the artists. Billboard has also said that YouTube is in the process of negotiating new deals with with monopoly recording labels such as Universal Music. Not trying to be snarky, YouTube has also released a statement saying the following:

“The voices of the artists are being heard, and we’re working through details with the labels and independent music organizations who directly manage the deals with us.”

Ironically, artists have commented saying that YouTube has diminished the value of music streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music. However, this is a bit contradicting since Taylor Swift wrote Apple Music an extensive letter, notifying Apple it was unfair to not compensate artists for their work for three months.
