Gonna Be A Smash Hit:

Dido “Still on My Mind” (lyric video) 

Dido made a name for herself creating atmospheres with her breathy, beat-based folk, and with her new music, she wanted to “create backing tracks that conjure up images … like watching a movie in your mind.” With the new lyric video, out today, she does just that, melding the song’s sweeping trip-hop crescendo and chords to gorgeous vintage visuals of oceans, outer space, and families from all over the world.

“Hurricanes” is the first single off  Still on My Mind (March 8th, BMG), Dido‘s first new album in five years. (sourced via Shorefire Media)

► SONTALK “Baby, I’m Gone”

Gearing up for the 2019 release of his debut album, SONTALK, the project of musician Joseph LeMay, today premieres an exclusive in-studio performance video for the album’s lead track “Baby, I’m Gone” at Nashville Scene. Filmed at Nashville’s Big Light Studio, the video brings to life the emotionality of the track as LeMay performs with his signature candor and a restorative vulnerability central to the music of SONTALK.

“Baby, I’m Gone” is just the start for SONTALK as he prepares for both his debut album as well as nearly 40 newly-announced tour dates. He’ll begin the New Year with a Chicago performance at Tomorrow Never Knows Festival supporting indie-pop act Yoke Lore before a string of dates alongside Bronze Radio Return and appearances at Savannah Stopover Music Festival and SXSW. SONTALK will hit the road again at the start of April, supporting artist Telekinesis on a month-long North American tour, with stops at renowned venues including Rough Trade (Brooklyn), U Street Music Hall (Washington DC), The Basement (Nashville), Café Du Nord (San Francisco) and more.
