morning babble / Friday 04-29-22
This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes, it gets tidied up; but other times, not so much. When all else fails: watch the video!
On Monday – I’ll go over all my new goals for the month of May. Several.
247 days until EXIT PLAN
Lady Gaga has announced “Hold My Hand,” a new song that she made for the new Tom Cruise movie Top Gun: Maverick. We got a snippet of the song. Clip. That’s it. That’s all we got. The single—out Tuesday, May 3rd. The movie – out May 27th
New Music Friday:
- The Bieber Boy – Justin – joined up with Don Toliver for the new single “Honest”. And, of course, there’s also a video that dropped too. But what do you do when you’re a good looking dude in Hollywood – that’s right – you cover up your face. (Video). Nice orange mask – I kid about Jusin Bieber but he really is doing a lot of good in the world with his tour – raising awareness on important issues like criminal justice reform, climate action, voter registration, and now, mental health awareness. Via Yahoo entertainment, the “Biebs” and online therapy platform, BetterHelp, have partnered to provide free access to therapy for Justin’s 250+ person touring crew and for his millions of fans, the latter of which BetterHelp has committed mental health services of up to $3,000,000 in value.
- Wilco announced a new album will be released on May 27th called Cruel Country. But today, we get a new single from them: “Falling Apart (Right Now)”. Apparently, this new album was almost entirely composed of live takes recorded at the Loft in Chicago—a method not employed by Wilco since recording Sky Blue Sky. Last week, I mentioned that Wilco announced multiple deluxe reissue editions of their 2002 Yankee Hotel Foxtrot in honor of the album’s 20th anniversary. The super deluxe edition includes 82 previously unreleased tracks. That’s not out until September 16th. But again today, you can go enjoy their newest single “Falling Apart (Right Now)”
- We get a whole new album drop from Future today – titled: I Never Liked You. There’s 16 tracks, it includes features from Young Thug and Gunna with the song “For a Nut” and a pair of appearances from Drake “I’m on One” and the other single which is being pushed today on Spotify “Wait for U”. There’s also a video that was released at midnight for the song featuring Kanye West and Future “Keep It Burnin” was released last night. (Video) As you can see, there’s a covering up your face theme happening. Whole Future album today.
- We got a new song from Sam Smith – not necessarily my jam or a sound that I double click on, but the guy is talented and this song is very well done with a solid message. The song is called “Love Me More.” But the lyrics . . . I’m going to read some: “Have you ever felt like being somebody else? / Feeling like the mirror isn’t good for your health? / Every day I’m tryin’ not to hate myself / But lately it’s not hurtin’ like it did before / Maybe I am learning how to love me more.” Video. See good stuff there from Sam Smith.
