Natasha’s Comeback

Natasha’s last album, Strip Me, came out an astonishing nine years ago, in December 2010. Since then, Natasha spent the better part of the past seven years writing and recording, releasing plenty of songs here and there over the years. Her latest new releases were the singles  “Let Go,” “Love Looks Like,” and “Hey Boy” in 2017. That last song Natasha wrote with Linda Perry, with whom she recorded her entire new album throughout 2018. Natasha is now part of Linda’s label and management company, We Are Hear.

In February 2018, Natasha said she was “really determined to get some of the best music and art that I’ve made out and into your ears”. After working in the studio off and on for several years, Natasha started over in spring 2018, this time working exclusively with Linda Perry. The new music is said to be soulful and have a “disco-retro vibe,” and Natasha recently called it “life-changing.”

Last January, Natasha Bedingfield finally finished recording her long-awaited new album. In March, after months of teasing, it looked like Natasha may have shot the cover art or filmed the music video for her comeback single. However, it looks like Natasha actually recorded the music video within the last week while in London and Berlin.

At this point, it seems that Natasha’s new album – her first since 2010’s Strip Me – will be out this summer or fall. With “Roller Skate” coming out this Friday, July 19th, we’ll certainly get Natasha’s full album by the end of this year!

It’s exciting to know that a new Natasha single and album are coming our way very soon! Catch up on all we know about the long-awaited fourth album, and get ready to hear “Roller Skate” later this week! Keep checking back here for all the latest Natasha Bedingfield music news.

Natasha Bedingfield Announces “Unwritten” Remix

Way back in 2005, Natasha Bedingfield released what would become one of her biggest hits: “Unwritten”. The song was everywhere, and a year later, “Unwritten” became the theme song for the popular reality TV series, The Hills. That show will see a revival next week as The Hills: New Beginnings, and to honor the comeback, Natasha Bedingfield is re-recording her still-beloved hit. We’ll soon get to hear her 2019 updated “Unwritten” remix.

But this isn’t just any remix. Natasha actually re-recorded the song alongside Linda Perry. The song sounds refreshed and modern, but still true to its irresistible roots.

Check out a behind-the-scenes making-of video below. You’ll get to hear a sneak peek of the “Unwritten” remix.

Natasha Bedingfield’s Revival

Although it’s been 9 years since Natasha released her last album, Strip Me, she’s not just a nostalgia act. Beyond redoing “Unwritten,” Natasha has also just recorded a brand new album! Her upcoming record is due later this year, and we can’t wait.

Natasha spent the better part of the past six years writing and recording, releasing plenty of songs here and there over the years. Her latest releases were the singles  “Let Go,” “Love Looks Like,” and “Hey Boy” in 2017. That last song Natasha wrote with Linda Perry, with whom she recorded her entire new album throughout 2018. Natasha is now part of Linda’s label and management company, We Are Hear.

In February 2018, Natasha said she was “really determined to get some of the best music and art that I’ve made out and into your ears”.

Last January, Natasha Bedingfield finally finished recording her long-awaited new album. In March, after months of teasing, it looked like Natasha may have shot the cover art or filmed the music video for her comeback single, potentially a song called “Roller Skates.” In fact, “Roller Skates” is just one of 15 songs Natasha wrote with Linda Perry in the last year. All the new titles have recently been registered on ASCAP, and they may all appear on Natasha’s new album!

Fall Out Boy Remixes “Church” To Feature nothing,nowhere

Early last year, Fall Out Boy put out their eclectic 7th album, M A N I A. To celebrate its release, the band shared the music video for “Church,” a highlight on the album. Today, more than a year since we first basked in the song’s glory, Fall Out Boy shared a remix of “Church,” now featuring rapper nothing,nowhere.

The “Church” remix starts with solemn guitar, in place of the organ heard on the original. Singer Patrick Stump croons the chorus before reaching the explosive “I’d get on my knees” line… except instead of launching into the haunting and energetic chorus – complete with intense church choir – the chorus here is more of a fade. The song is softer now, more atmospheric and dreamy than before. nothing,nowhere sings a new verse where the bridge once was. He sings, “I don’t love myself, I’m tired of living in this hell” before rapping about how he “never knew I could feel that low.”

Listen to the remix of “Church” – featuring nothing, nowhere – below:

Stream the new remix of “Church” above. If you want to hear the original recording, be sure to check out Fall Out Boy’s last album. You can buy M A N I A on iTunes or stream it on Spotify now.

You’ll also want to revisit the music video for “Church,” released last year. Additionally, you can find out how the band made the M A N I A album version of “Church” in the in-depth making-of video below:

Fall Out Boy’s last album, M A N I A, came out in January 2018 following several singles. In addition to “Church,” it launched the singles “Young And Menace,” “Champion,” “The Last Of The Real Ones,” “HOLD ME TIGHT OR DON’T,” “Wilson (Expensive Mistakes),” and later, “Bishops Knife Trick.”

Last summer, the band released a 3-song EP, Lake Effect Kid. Earlier this year, Fall Out Boy also appeared on the single “I’ve Been Waiting” with iLoveMakonnen and the late Lil Peep. Patrick Stump also recently appeared in a new song called “Summer Days” with Martin Garrix and Macklemore.

Fall Out Boy’s Future

What’s next for Fall Out Boy? In a new Rolling Stone interview with Joe Trohman, the guitarist talks about his other band, The Damned Things, in addition to Fall Out Boy. He says that Fall Out Boy are on a bit of a break for now while they focus on other things.

I’d say there is a future. I honestly have no idea what it is. I don’t want that to sound ominous. We did M A N I A, and three records back to back, and we’re literally seriously taking time to be with families and make anything that anyone else wants to make without the looming schedule of Fall Out Boy overhead, which is great. It’s something that we all needed. We all needed a break. We went back to back for years, again. And again, we learned that lesson first time around not to do that again, not to go nine years or whatever and then, like, beat ourselves into a hateful submission. This time it was what, five or six years? And we were like, “Cool, let’s give ourselves a healthy break from this.” But I mean, will there be Fall Out Boy again? Yeah, I do not see why not. Yes.

Enjoy the new remix of “Church” with nothing,nowhere. It might be a while before we get to hear more Fall Out Boy, but in the meantime, we can enjoy what they do on their own and with other bands. Keep checking back here for all the latest music news.

 

Hear P!nk’s Cover Of “A Million Dreams” & See BTS Of Recording

P!nk and her daughter were big fans of The Greatest Showman, so it’s fitting that they recorded songs for its upcoming soundtrack, The Greatest Showman – Reimagined. P!nk covers “A Million Dreams,” while her daughter, Willow Sage Hart, made her recorded debut in performing the song’s reprise. Both tracks appear on the new album, out on November 16th.

“A Million Dreams” starts with intimate acoustic guitar. P!nk’s voice is gentle and emotive as the song builds up, sweeping strings and percussion bringing drama. The chorus soars, illuminating dream-like lyrics and inspiring you to pursue your goals, no matter how outlandish they may seem. P!nk is the perfect fit for this empowering song about taking that big leap. It’s dynamic and raw, with just the right amount of magic.

Listen to P!nk’s cover of “A Million Dreams” below:

Fans can also get a behind-the-scenes look at how P!nk and Willow recorded the main song and its reprise. Watch the adorable making-of video below:

The Greatest Showman – Reimagined comes out on November 16th via Atlantic Records. You can pre-order it on iTunes now and get instant downloads of both “A Million Dreams” and Willow’s reprise of the same song. You can also stream both “A Million Dreams” and “A Million Dreams (Reprise)” on Spotify now.

Stay tuned for more promotional singles leading up to the album’s release. Only Kelly Clarkson’s cover of “Never Enough” and Panic! At The Disco’s rendition of “The Greatest Show” include track lengths. They will most likely be shared as the next two singles prior to the soundtrack’s official release.

Enjoy P!nk’s and Willow’s covers of “A Million Dreams,” and, as always, keep checking back here for all the latest music news.

Avril Lavigne Films Music Video For Upcoming First Single!

Last weekend, Avril Lavigne announced she was about to shoot the music video for her first single. Today, she officially began filming – and, of course, she included fans in the process! The music video’s director, Elliott Lester, was in Iceland last weekend filming footage that seems to be for the Avril Lavigne project. Avril wasn’t there, but some deleted Instagram posts showed a stunt double who looked uncannily similar to her.

Today, Avril was on set in Los Angeles shooting her parts in front of a green screen. Presumably the Iceland footage will appear behind her in the final video. Avril wears a long white dress and her hair and makeup are soft and mature. No raccoon eyes this time!

Update 8/24: Late last night, Avril added new videos to her Instagram Stories “Video Shoot” highlights. In it, she and her hairstylist Lauren Bates talked about their long day onset, in which Avril’s hair had to repeatedly be redone. It got wet, then dried, then wet again multiple times. Apparently she’ll appear in the water at some point in the music video! This connects with the concept she used for her album cover – she shot it last month – in which she also appears in the water.

 

It’s exciting to be this close to hearing Avril’s long-awaited new music! The music video looks stunning already, and it’s clear they’re putting a lot of work into it. With scenery from Iceland and at least two more days of shooting in Los Angeles, this may be Avril’s most ambitious video yet. It’ll be fitting for her highly anticipated comeback. Within a few weeks, we’ll have more information about the upcoming album – and we’ll be hearing the single sometime in September!

The Long Road to Album #6

Avril’s sixth studio album has been a long labor of love. After releasing her self-titled fifth record in late 2013, she came down with Lyme disease the following spring, announcing it in 2015. Overcoming the illness inspired her new music. Though she officially began recording it in spring 2017, Avril began writing and demoing three years ago. And despite multiple predictions of finishing – first last November, then this February – it had looked like Avril finally wrapped the recording process in May. Though a recent post with songwriter Bonnie McKee posed some doubts about whether the album was actually finished.

Avril has described her upcoming album as being more rock this time around, and worked on a few songs with Travis Clark of We The Kings. She’s also returning to her roots in some ways. As proof, she co-wrote two songs with Lauren Christy, the songwriter behind “I’m With You” and “Complicated.” Avril has also worked with producer J.R. Rotem. Some songs fans may hear on album #6 include “Lucky Ones,” “It Was In Me,” “Warrior,” and “Crush.”

Avril’s “next level” album will come out later out this year via BMG RecordsCatch up on all we know about the new record so far, and keep checking back here for more on Avril’s new music. In just a few weeks, we’ll finally have a new song and music video to enjoy!
