Miley Cyrus’ sixth studio album Younger Now will be released September 29 via RCA Records and is available for pre-order now at all digital retail providers. Today, she has revealed a fourth track from the collection, “Week Without You,” lyrics written by Miley Cyrus, with music written and produced by Miley Cyrus and Oren Yoel. The track will be available as instant-grat upon album pre-order along with previously released tracks “Malibu,” “Inspired,” and “Younger Now.”
Younger Now is by no means a reinvention, but more a continuation. As the title-track expresses, “No one stays the same.” Cyrus has always been true to herself on her creative journey and has shared her life and experiences with fans through her artistry. Her prior albums were a direct reflection of her unapologetic self, and uncompromising vision of her music. And with Younger Now, Cyrus took the full creative reigns with an intention to share a piece of herself, unlike before. She wrote every lyric, co-wrote the music, and co-produced the album.
“This writing process has been a really different experience because I’ve never put out an album this way,” Cyrus admits. “People have been asking me, ‘is this like a re-introduction of yourself?’ But it’s not that at all. Actually, it’s more like, I am this person who embraces all my past selves. This album is the most me for right now that I can be.”
Cyrus recently invited BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge to her Rainbowland studio for a special performance that included “Malibu” and “Younger Now,” as well as fan favorites “Party In The U.S.A.” and “See You Again,” which is currently celebrating its 10-year anniversary. Cyrus showcased her vocal prowess and country-tinged roots, and chose Roberta Flack’s classic ballad “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” as her cover.
Following the release of title track “Younger Now,” Forbes noted, “Miley Cyrus … puts down the synths and the production software and allows real instruments to do the heavy lifting.” Rolling Stone wrote, “Both the single and video find Cyrus balancing her pop and newfound country instincts, with the singer emulating country legends like Johnny Cash, Porter Wagoner and Elvis Presley.”
Miley Cyrus is a singer-songwriter, actress, artist and philanthropist. With five #1 albums including her 2013 GRAMMY-nominated album Bangerz, which went Platinum in the U.S., five sold out world tours and almost 30 million tracks sold, Cyrus is one of the most influential artists in pop culture. Most recently she showcased her artistic vision on her independent album Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz. She is one of the most searched artists in Internet history with over 160 million digital platform subscribers and over 3 billion video views.
In addition to her success in music and television, Cyrus founded the non-profit organization The Happy Hippie Foundation to rally young people to fight injustice. Since launching, the foundation has provided direct support to thousands of homeless and LGBTQ youth across the country. In 2015, amfAR honored Cyrus’ fight against HIV/AIDS with its Award of Inspiration and the Los Angeles LGBT Center honored her work on behalf of LGBT youth with its Vanguard Award. Most recently, Cyrus has been honored with Variety’s 2016 Power of Women award for all her philanthropic efforts.

“Meillä oli Hulluuden Highway -levyn biisidemojen joukossa yksi melodia, jota tarjottiin Aku Louhimiehelle tulevan Tuntematon sotilas -elokuvan musavideoprojektiksi. Tämä oli luontainen jatkumo 8-pallo -elokuvan yhteistyön jälkeen”, kertoo kappaleen säveltänyt kitaristi Leo Hakanen.
“Aku tykästyi kovasti Tuntematon-biisin melodiaan sekä tekstin universaaliin yhdistymisen teemaan. Oli mahtavaa tehdä toistamiseen yhteistyötä aina innostavan ja sympaattisen Aku Louhimiehen kanssa!” kuvailee laulaja-sanoittaja Elli Haloo.
”Haloo Helsinki! -yhtyeen kanssa on aina suuri ilo työskennellä! Ihailen sitä herkkyyttä ja intohimoa, jolla he tarttuvat uuteen. Toivon, että olemme saaneet bändin huikean live-energian välittymään videolla”, kertoo Tuntematon-musiikkivideon ja Tuntematon sotilas -elokuvan ohjaaja Aku Louhimies.
Haloo Helsinki! tekee 10-vuotisen uran kunniaksi massiivisen Hulluuden Highway Areenakiertueen, joka käynnistyy 20.10. ja kattaa 10 kaupunkia. Turun Logomon ja Tampereen Tähti Areenan keikat ovat loppuunvarattuja. Kiertueen päätöskonsertti Helsingin Hartwall Arenassa 2. joulukuuta on lähes loppuunvarattu.
Aku Louhimiehen Tuntematon sotilas -elokuvan ennakkolipunmyynti alkaa perjantaina 29.9.2017 elokuvateattereissa. Elokuva saa ensi-iltansa 27.10.2017. Elokuvan pääosia näyttelevät Eero Aho, Johannes Holopainen, Jussi Vatanen ja Aku Hirviniemi. Tuntematon sotilas -elokuvan käsikirjoitus pohjautuu Väinö Linnan romaaniin.
Haloo Helsinki! teki maaliskuussa paluun keikkalavoille kahdella Tallinnan Saku Arenan konsertilla, jotka keräsivät yhteensä lähes 20 000 hengen yleisön. Paluukonsertteja seurasi Suomen-kiertue, jonka kaikki keikat olivat loppuunmyytyjä. Kesällä 2017 yhtye teki 26 festivaalikeikkaa.
Haloo Helsinki! julkaisi maaliskuussa kuudennen albuminsa ”Hulluuden Highway”. Berliinissä legendaarisessa Hansa Studiossa äänitetty albumi on myynyt tuplaplatinaan oikeuttavat yli 40 000 kappaletta.

While Nepal is known mostly for its Himalayan mountain range, beautiful landscapes and unique culture, it is also a hotbed for one of Asia's heaviest music scenes. Over the last 2 decades, the country has churned out quality bands in every genre from death metal to powe-rviolence. The result of which is Neck Deep In Filth, which represents members from different music scenes of Nepal, joined together to create a bludgeoning, powerful sound that will appeal to fans of both hardcore punk and extreme metal. However, the band also holds a political edge, as the lyrical content is written in a way to make outsiders aware that this little mountain country isn't as peaceful as it seems.
Their first single was recently premiered on Unite Asia, along with an interview that chronicles the history of the Nepali scene.
Unite Asia premieres "Praise The Tyrant":
Neck Deep In Filth was formed in 2016 when members of various Kathmandu-based punk, hardcore, and death metal bands came together to play politically-driven hardcore/punk. Members Vishal (vocals) and Sushil (bass) were a part of one of the first Nepali punk rock band, Inside 2 Stoopid Triangles, which also contained members of US grindcore band Chepang at the time. The two also share a past in metallic hardcore juggernauts Jugaa whereas guitarist Sandesh and drummer Sanjay were recruited from Squirtguns and Asphyxiate respectively.
Having initially met through shows and sharing practice spaces, since Kathmandu is such a small place, the band quickly settled in together and began to forge a sound that is reminiscent of the dark hardcore of Integrity, Cursed, Alpinist as well as the violent rage of Left For Dead, Haymaker & Sick of it All. The band takes influences from different ends of the extreme music spectrum to create an unrelenting, punishing wall of sound with tremolo riffs, breakdowns, blast-beats and frantic screaming – all packaged in a very mid-90’s style production. The EP was recorded in their rehearsal spaces while their bassist Sushil recorded, mixed & mastered the material, resulting in a sound that is definitive of what DIY means in the third world.
To promote the upcoming release of the EP, the band has played some well-received shows in their city, which boasts one of the best metal & punk scenes in South Asia. Self-released CDs of the EP will be released when NDIF plays The Pit on Sept 9. The artwork is made by Dib Gurung, known for his work with Chepang, and reflects the strong political views of the bands by showing a member of a minority community surrounded by bullets and the Nepali flag. As vocalist Vishal puts it - “We’re living in a society filled with racists, misogynists, and hate filled ultranationalists. We’re surrounded by scum. Hence, Neck Deep In Filth.”
Prosthetic Records is proud to welcome Hong Kong-based rock and blues musician and composer Jason Kui to its roster. Kui is a session and touring guitarist who has worked with many well-known artists throughout Hong Kong and China. As a teenager, he was drawn to the playing of Eddie Van Halen, John Petrucci and Andy Timmons, who all greatly influenced his playing. Kui's debut album, Absence of Words, features diverse sounds - modern metal, hard rock, funk and ballad - while integrating rock lead techniques and compelling melodies throughout. Prosthetic Records will make the album available for the first time outside of Hong Kong on October 13, 2017.
Jason Kui says: "Fortunately for me, instrumental music is popular again like in the 80's, and it has no language barriers - an Asian rock or pop singer could never find a large audience in the US or Europe. Prosthetic Records is known for great instrumental artists, like Marty Friedman. Getting signed by Prosthetic is quite unbelievable. It has been my ambition for years to be signed by an American label. I hope this will lead a tour and performing in the US."
Absence of Words was mixed and mastered in New York by Matthew Sim at Germano Studios and Alex Psaroudakis at Sterling Sound and features several other guest musicians, including one of the most in-demand bassists in Hong Kong, Chan Siu Kei, as well as American modern metal drum virtuoso, Anup Sastry. Sastry played on all the tracks on the album and his unique, modern sound and incredible techniques are recognizable in every song.
Kui started his career as a sideman at the age of 23, and has played countless shows at the Coliseum, Hong Kong's largest venue which seats 12,500. He recently finished a two-year world tour as lead guitarist for Eason Chan, the legendary Hong Kongsinger. The 135-show tour included venues in China, South-east Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA, including Madison Square Garden. The two finale shows were performed at Beijing's Bird's Nest Olympic Stadium to sell-out crowds totalling 100,000 people.
US rockers Madam X, ft. Vixen drummer Roxy Petrucci, sign to EMP Label Group; set to release "Monstrocity" Oct 31.
Legendary Detroit Hard Rockers MADAM X have signed a deal with EMP Label Group, who will release their long-awaited sophomore release Monstrocity on October 31st, (October 27th in Europe) on CD and Digital, with a limited edition vinyl release planned for November. Produced by Madam X at Metro 37 Studios in Rochester Hills, MI, and Mixed by Michael Wagener (Megadeth, Metallica, Skid Row, Ozzy Osbourne), with additional mixing by Mark Slaughter, Monstrocity is a hard-hitting classic Metal/Rock record sure to serve as a proper return to form for Madam X, and a kick in the ass for fans old and new.
Formed in 1981 by sisters Roxy and Maxine Petrucci, Madam X recruited bassist Chris “Godzilla” Doliber and vocalist Bret Kaiser, who released their classic, Rick Derringer produced, Jet Records debut "We Reserve The Right" in 1984, spawning the hit Rock single “High in High School”. 4 years later, after Roxy departed to join future Arena Rock superstars VIXEN, and original vocalist Kaiser was briefly replaced by an unknown Canadian vocalist named Sebastian Bach, Madam X disbanded, and would remain mostly inactive until 2014, when the original line-up reunited at the Sweden Rock Festival.
Fast forward to 2017, when the Petrucci sisters collaborated with vocalist Mark Slaughter on a Lemmy Kilmister tribute track for their VIP Aftershow project, Slaughter who introduced Roxy to EMP Label Group head of A&R Thom Hazaert, who released a 12” “Kilmister” single for Aftershow, and the conversation soon shifted to the upcoming Madam X release.
Says Hazaert, “When I connected with Roxy and we were working on The Aftershow stuff, and she told me they were working on a new Madam X record, I was extremely excited at the prospect of releasing it. After a brief courtship, we made the decision to put it out together, and I can honestly say I’m still excited. Madam X is such a kickass Rock band, I was always a huge fan of their first record, and to be able to release its follow up over 30 years later is just insane.”
Adds drummer Roxy Petrucci, "Hell may not be pretty but good things will find their way out!! It takes a huge pair of metal balls to sign a band like Madam X, David Ellefson and Thom Hazaert at EMP put their love of metal first, and crushed it by signing Madam X! Raw and flawed, Monstrocity will be unleashed onto the world in fall 2017! Long live Rock n Roll but immortalized in Metal!"
The album features 12 hard-hitting slabs of Rock, including the pummelling title track “Monstrocity”, “Resurrection”, “Nitrous”, and an updated version of their 1984 hit “High In High School.”
