Customers that pre-order the digital album will immediately receive a download of the album’s second single. “I’m on My Way / On My Way” is a medley of one of Sutton’s signature songs from the musical Violet, combined with the traditional spiritual.

The recording’s first single, also available now to customers who pre-order the digital album, is “Stars and the Moon” with music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown.

ALTERNATIVE DUO 'THE PALMS' KICKING OFF NEW TOUR


THE PALMS



Los Angeles alternative duo THE PALMS will head out on the road for the month of April in response to the rapid growth of new fans that have discovered the band. Kicking their tour off on April 3 with a hometown headlining performance at The Troubadour sponsored by KROQ for a "Locals Only" showcase, the completely independent duo of Ben Rothbard and Johnny Zambetti and their band will then travel to Las Vegas to headline Emerge Impact + Music with Warbly Jets, Stokeswood and The National Parks. Next, THE PALMS will move on to Denver, Salt Lake City, Boise, San Francisco and Santa Ana, CA with fellow L.A. indie pop duo Coast Modern.



At each show, THE PALMS will highlight material from their independently released mixtape album MULHOLLAND DR which was written, recorded and produced out of their tiny home studio in Malibu, CA on super old gear they coin "vintage digital." The message within their songs, which reflect the times culturally and politically, are just as relevant as their California vibrations. Bridging the gap between Laurel Canyon folk and West Coast beats, THE PALMS create a true modern L.A. sound. Lookfor THE PALMS to bring the energy that will "...capture the essence of California" as recently noted by Live Nation's Ones To Watch blog (2/21/18).

GRAMMY WINNER JAMES BAY'S NEW 'ELECTRIC LIGHT'

James Bay 'Electric Light'



NEW YORK, NY — Three-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated and BRIT Award-winning multiplatinum singer-songwriter James Bay will release his anxiously awaited second full-length album, Electric Light on Friday, May 18, 2018 via [Republic Records].



Starting today fans can pre-order Electric Light which will unlock an instant download of critically acclaimed single “Wild Love” and brand-new track “Pink Lemonade.” Premiering as Apple Music Beats 1 “World Record” today, “Pink Lemonade” illuminates another shade of Electric Light - showcasing Bay’s evolution with a louder sound and transistor guitars. The song comes out right in time for his NBC Saturday Night Live debut performance on Saturday, March 10th with host Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us, Black Panther). Check out “Pink Lemonade”.



After selling out his spring headline tour, Bay is also announcing details for his expanded North American and European run. Adding nearly 30 new dates, the tour takes Bay across North America and Europe making stops at New York’s Beacon Theater on September 18th and Los Angeles’ The Greek Theatre on October 7th. Fan pre-sale for these newly added shows will begin on Wednesday, March 14th at 10am local time, with the public on-sale taking place on Friday, March 16th at 10am local time. Fans can gain access to pre-sale tickets with purchase of any item from shop.jamesbay.com and every pair of online tickets comes with a copy of Electric Light (offer valid for US residents only). Tickets can be found at www.jamesbay.com.



Aspiring to push his own musical boundaries with Electric Light Bay noted: “If I had to describe my first album visually it would probably be a flame - while this new album is about a real sonic and artistic evolution for me. The feeling of a 100 watt bulb expanding and brightening is what I envisioned. Electric Light came to my mind and I knew it was perfect.”



Composed in East London’s Baltic Studios, Bay co-wrote and co-produced Electric Light with longtime friend and collaborator Jon Green and brought onboard Paul Epworth [Adele, Florence and The Machine] to add final production elements to the record. Released on February 8th, single “Wild Love” has already reached 10 million Spotify streams and counting in addition to racking up nearly 3 million views from its official music video co-starring Natalia Dyer of Stranger Things. Watch the “Wild Love” music video here. Across the globe it has earned widespread critical acclaim from NME, Forbes, Harpers Bazaar, Time, GQ UK, Rolling Stone, People, Clash, Billboard, and more.
