WILLIAM PRINCE RELEASES NEW SINGLES: ‘WHEN YOU MISS SOMEONE’ AND ‘TANQUERAY’

 

William Prince is not waiting. Not holding his breath, not keeping score, not wishing for what he doesn’t have or hoping for better days. From where he stands, those better days are here. The time to let happiness in, to welcome the good things it brings and to enjoy the good times it makes, is now. Not one day. Today.

William Prince’s new album is a declaration of joy, an active and energized mind and bodystate. This is what joy feels like, for William. It’s all around. Leading with gratitude, Prince offers his perspective on what it feels like, for him, to love and be loved wholeheartedly. “This record shines a light on one of my greatest sources of strength and happiness: her.” This is Stand in the Joy.

While memory is what shapes our concept of time, dwelling in the past prevents us from moving beyond old, bad habits that keep breaking connections. In “When You Miss Someone,” which introduces the new album, Prince describes the physical hallmarks of longing. You might not relate exactly to Prince’s example: “you can stand in front of the Eiffel Tower and wish you were in Winnipeg,” but you know the feeling. The twist, Prince’s realization, is that this is just a feeling, and it need not hold you back. Alongside also comes “Tanqueray,” a song that captures the head rush of new love, the kind that sets larger things-including the story of this album-in motion. “I want to be like Johnny Cash, an artist for the people,” says William. And the people drink Tanqueray.

Pre-save “Stand in the Joy” out April 14 2023, and listen to the first two singles off the album here.

JULY TALK RELEASES NEW ALBUM: REMEMBER NEVER BEFORE

On Remember Never Before, July Talk Asks: Who Are You Now?

 

New Album Out Today with Lyric Video for “When You Stop”.

 

Watch Here / Listen Now

 

“‘When You Stop’ captures everything about the band that we love.” – NPR World Cafe

 

“Masterfully inventive.” – KUTX

 

“July Talk doesn’t just stake a claim to the beginning of 2023 to kick off the year on the right foot, they may have set the standard of expectation for it.” – Nanobot

 

July Talk marks the release of Remember Never Before with a lyric video for “When You Stop,” hand-drawn and animated by band co-leads Leah and Peter. “When You Stop,” a swirling cyclone of a song, is about courage. A chase scene, a jump cut, a monster in the room: “When You Stop” plunges straight into the pit of your stomach. 

 

With “When You Stop” and the album as a whole, July Talk asks some tough questions: What did you miss? What did you face? Who are you now? Remember Never Before is an album about not taking for granted the opportunity to bring people together and be with your community. It’s an album of matter over mind. Instincts. Guts. Radical acceptance of who we are; giant hopefulness for who we can be. 

 

Remember Never Before thrashes against the conditions (conditioning) and goes harder and heavier than ever before, with relentless riffs and driving percussion whipping up a frenzy around Peter and Leah’s ecstatic, elastic voices. This is what happens when you say what you feel. This is also what happens when you add a second drummer. 

 

Cathartic in its observance of change, Remember Never Before is July Talk, now.

WHITEHORSE RELEASES NEW ALBUM “I’M NOT CRYING, YOU’RE CRYING

Whitehorse Rides High with I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying

Classic Country Turn Arrives Today with 4-Star Reviews Spring Ontario Tour on Sale Now

“Weepy, funny, hooky, bouncy and lovely.” – Associated Press

“It’s a lot of really charming country songs in the spirit of a lot of the great country records of the 70s. This is a really, really strong record.” – NPR Music

January 13, 2023 – Award-winning Canadian duo Whitehorse—Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet—just released their eighth LP, I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying, leaving no emotional, personal, fantastical, or political stone unturned. The new album finds the pair venturing deeper into classic country music touchstones than ever before; a move that is both a homecoming and an evolution of their sound. A twist on the ever-present “pandemic album,” Whitehorse distilled and transcended the gloom and uncertainty of the time with a collection about heartbreak and loyalty; shaking things up and hunkering down. The resulting twelve-song collection is playful yet profound; masterfully simple and timeless—and is out today on Six Shooter Records surprising and charming critics and fans alike. 

 

Stream or purchase I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying today at this link, where you can listen to fan favorites like “Division 5,” “If The Loneliness Don’t Kill Me,” and new tracks like “Bet The Farm,” which is a chapel-ready ode to loving love. 

 

In addition to the release of I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying, Whitehorse have just announced an early summer tour that begins on May 18th at Sarnia, Ontario’s Imperial Theatre, and UK fans can catch the duo live later this month from Jan. 26-28 for UK Americana Week. A full list of tour dates can be found at whitehorsemusic.ca/live.

JULY TALK RELEASE NEW SINGLE “REPEAT”

Forgive + Forget, Soothe + Reset: July Talk Release “Repeat” 

Listen here 

 

Remember Never Before out Jan 20, 2023

 

High art / short form video: “Certain Father” mini films out now. Watch here

 

July Talk mark December 21, the longest night of the year, with “Repeat,” from forthcoming album Remember Never Before. “Repeat” is a worry stone, a meditation on the decisions we make and the reasons we make them. 

 

In recent years, July Talk has released a cover song on the winter solstice, a collection that now includes selections from FKA Twigs and James, Floyd Red Crow Westerman and Mclusky. The through line, true for “Repeat” too, is these are songs that wipe the slate clean, songs that shimmer with beauty and defiance, and songs that set the space for reflection as the earth tilts. 

 

The sounds of Remember Never Before, coming January 20, 2023, careen from the urgent agitation of “After This,” described by BBC6’s Steve Lamacq as “impatient and fidgety,” to the angular dissonance of “Certain Father,” a song that meets aggression with compassion and  challenges gendered polarities. 

 

The themes of “Certain Father” inform a new micro film series, a set of six explosive mini episodes in which July Talk bring their high concept visual work into the short form video era. Directed by Nadia Tan, the micro films explore the choice of tenderness over violence as rituals of understanding each other. Watch the “Certain Father” series here

 

Remember Never Before arrives Jan 20, 2023.

SERENA RYDER AND WILLIAM PRINCE REUNITE WITH “RIVER OF TEARS”

Serena Ryder and William Prince standing together and waving to a crowd.

Serena Ryder and William Prince meet again in “River of Tears,” the second duet released by two of the country’s finest songwriters. The song’s journey of resilience is a theme familiar to both artists. Earthy and grounded, “River of Tears” is carried by gently interwoven vocals over sparkling tones. 

“This song connects me to the wisdom of nature and the magnanimous way opinion indeed changes reality,” offers Ryder. “A song I wrote years ago brought into its full potential by William’s perfectly profound pipes.” 

Ryder is currently touring her compelling new album, The Art of Falling Apart, which invites listeners to join her mental wellness journey through a driving pop sound and the full range of her powerful voice. The 7-time JUNO Award winning Ryder also recently performed at Alanis Morissette’s Canadian Songwriter Hall of Fame Induction.

Prince, currently on a coast-to-coast headline tour, has continued to make meaningful, impactful national appearances, from co-hosting A Day To Listen, which aired on radio stations across the country, to his performance in Starwalker: A Celebration of the Songs, Music and Life of Buffy Sainte-Marie, televised on CBC. Watch his performance of “Now That The Buffalo’s Gone” backed by The Tragically Hip here.

SKYE WALLACE RELEASES LABEL DEBUT “TERRIBLY GOOD”

 

Today Skye Wallace releases her Six Shooter label debut “Terribly Good” and shares album highlight “Tear A Piece (Bite Me)”. Skye Wallace is an expert at proving herself in every room, at every turn and with Terribly Good, Wallace does it once again with her scream queen prowess of carving melodies and shreddable moments from rock foundations.
Terribly Good is a candid self-own, tender in purpose yet often tough in process. Throughout the
collection, listeners are there in the room with a view of the mirror while Skye stares down the harder
takes and owns her mistakes.
 
This record was the process of coming home to myself, of looking in the eye all the messy, sometimes
ugly pieces of being alive and the beauty of growing and moving through it,” says Wallace.
Listen to the full album now via your favourite streaming platform.

WHITEHORSE RELEASE NEW SINGLE “IF THE LONELINESS DON’T KILL ME”

Luke and Melissa stood against a red curtain and posing towards the camera.

Whitehorse build the world of I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying with another new song, “If The Loneliness Don’t Kill Me,” out today. With its classic country stylings, all twang and playful melodrama, the song rides the rollercoaster of extremes, from harsh isolation to overwhelming socialization, that have characterized life in recent years.

A soundtrack for surviving both the highs and the lows, “If The Loneliness Don’t Kill Me” raises its glass to getting by, by any means.

The accompanying video, filmed in LA and directed, produced and edited by Six Shooter’s JUNO nominated designer/director Lyle Bell and Caitlin Veitch, deftly combines iconic west coast scenescapes with the album’s 70s country inspiration. Watch “If The Loneliness Don’t Kill Me” above.

I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying is due on January 13, 2023, and is an immaculate collection of 70s country-inspired songs, showcasing Whitehorse at their absolute best.
