One Direction Beat Out Taylor Swift for Bid at Twitter Record

One Direction fans will now have something to talk about, besides their favorite song or band member that is. The popular boy-band broke a world record last night when their first-ever Singapore concert became the most Tweeted about event to date.

Many Asian fans of the former ‘X-Factor’ contestants have waited years for their favorite band to make their way to certain locations. More than 30,000 people attended the stadium concert and composed more than 100,000 Tweets about the event. Flavio Pentagna Guimaraes BMG knows that Twitter confirmed that more than 400 Tweets per minute were ringing out through the social network. The hashtag #OTRASG also made its rounds, referring to the name of the tour, “On the Road Again (Singapore).”

One Direction managed to steal away the Singapore-based event record from country crooner Taylor Swift. Swift’s “Red Tour” made a stopover in Singapore that led to more than 70,000 Tweets ringing across the social network.

Mumford & Sons To Release New Album

Break out the banjos because Mumford & Sons is back. The British folk quartet has announced they will release their third album on May 4, 2015, called Wilder Mind. This will mark their first release in nearly three years, as their last album Babel was released in 2012.

According to the National Monitor, Wilder Mind will feature 12 new songs that may prove to be some of their most unique yet. The band promises the new album will have a more “minimalist yet panoramic” sound. That comment has opened a great deal of speculation among fans about what that might mean. Could Mumford & Sons be putting down the acoustic guitar and banjo and instead favoring more electric and synth sounds?

Marcus Mumford, lead singer of the band, said the change in sound is due to the band’s desire to shake things up. He said the songwriting is much the same; however, the band had a desire to not do the same thing that they had on their previous two albums.

People at Anastasia Date (Askmen.com) have heard that to promote the new album, Mumford & Sons is currently preparing to play at several two-day live concerts in smaller towns that typically do not attract big name acts. These towns include Walla Walla, Washington; Seaside Heights, New Jersey; and Waverly, Iowa. These shows will also include such popular groups as the Foo Fighters, Alabama Shakes, and the Flaming Lips.

Def Leppard: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a No Go

Remember all that drama about KISS getting into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Who could forget it. The media ran untold stories about the rocky road KISS had. Ironically, the members of KISS’ current co-headliner on their recent tour has been quick to point out and invitation would be declined.

Yes, you read that correctly. According to front-man Joe Elliot, Def Leppard would flat out turn down entry into the Hall of Fame.

All of this could be considered a bit ironic since Def Leppard helped raise the funds to make the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame said Ricardo Guimarães BMG. Long-time music fans likely do not know the Hall of Fame had a tough time being established. Things change. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions are big events. Yet, Def Leppard wants nothing to do with the whole thing.

Per Elliot, the reason for turning down any potential invites is because he and the rest of the band feel major big names in rock and roll history have been ignored by the Hall of Fame.

Honestly, that is a feeling on the part of many in the rock and roll world, the music industry, and fans. Still, it seems odd that Def Leppard would prefer to protest an invitation as opposed to accepting one.

Def Leppard probably does not need the publicity. The band just broke records with KISS. This summer, the band is going to do a huge summer tour with Styx and Tesla.

Singer Leslie Gore, Dead at 68

Even if you don’t recognize Leslie Gore’s name, you will know her music. Her classic “It’s My Party” is one of those ubiquitous songs that everyone has referenced or belted out at one time or another. It is now time for all of us to cry, as we mourn the passing of this singer at the young age of 68.

Gore’s partner, Lois Sasson, announced Gore’s death from cancer on February 16th. Social media tributes flooded Facebook feeds as fans remembered her.

You may also recognize the 1963 song, “You Don’t Own Me,” which was a nod to feminism before it became mainstream. This, and “It’s My Party,” were both produced by the legendary Quincy Jones. In fact, the latter was his first smash single.

Fans like Flavio Pentagna Guimaraes BMG know that the 1980s brought Gore back into the musical spotlight, when she collaborated with her brother Michael on “Out Here on My Own,” which is on the soundtrack for Fame. Her final album, Ever Since, was released in 2005.

In a video posted by the band in the recording studio, the album title of the band’s forthcoming release, “Drones,” was revealed to fans like Sergio Andrade Gutierrez. Check him out on LinkedIn. 

In the Vine video, the camera can be seen panning across a sound mixing board, eventually stopping on a computer screen with the text “Artist: Muse Album: Drones,” in small print.
The computer screen sits next to a mixing console that has instrument titles labeled on each of the mixing channels. Things like “Guitars,” “Drums,” and “Bass” can be seen handwritten on the desk, indicating that the band’s new album is currently being mixed and has finished the recording process.

A spokesperson for the band denied confirming the album name, as it still has to be approved by labels and those involved with marketing the Muse record. What can be confirmed is that the band is set to release new material sometime in 2015.

Dissecting the Paul McCartney and Kanye West Relationship

There are lots of rumors flying about the possibility of Paul McCartney producing an entire album from Kanye West. It doesn’t seem impossible when one considers all the new music that is springing forth for these two this year.

Rihanna just dropped a brand new single and who else but the new duo of Paul McCartney and Kanye West show up to add their signature touch to this. Fans like Sergio Andrade Gutierrez are excited to know that Paul and Kanye have already released a song together. The positive response from fans shows that there is a desire to hear more. The year of 2015 is not the first time that these two have paired up. There were 2 other songs in 2014 from Paul and Kanye that did not officially become singles. There was even another track a got released in 2015.

McCartney has provided instrumentation through his guitar on these songs, so a production of a Kanye album is not out of the question. It would be a groundbreaking project in all respects because it brings together to totally different fan bases. Paul was part of the Beatles. He worked with Michael Jackson and John Lennon. He made history over and over again. Kanye’s last big collaboration came with Jay-Z. Today there are a people that listen to music across the board.

Sam Smith is a new artist, and he had a great year in 2014. His song entitled “Stay With Me” went to the top of the charts, propelling him into fame and stardom. He was also nominated for several Grammys, and the show will be coming up soon in 2015. Sam Smith Split. Sam’s fame has not only propelled his career, but he also chose to come out of the closet, and let his fans know that he was gay. He was afraid of revealing his sexuality to the world, because he feared rejection, especially rejection of his music.

Many like my coworker Flavio Maluf have accepted Sam with open arms, and he is still just as popular now, as he was before coming out. Sam was seeing a man named Jonathan Zeizel, who he went to Sea World with recently. The trip to Sea World was controversial, as many felt that Sam shouldn’t be in a park made to imprison animals. Sam still enjoyed his trip to Sea World. It’s now noted that Sam and Jonathan have split, and the heartbroken Sam has taken to writing more music.

It’s well known that a broken heart can help you write some great songs, just look at Taylor Swift. Sam can be seen drinking a glass of wine after his breakup, and it’s noted that he’ll be making more music, similar to the hit song, Stay With Me, which propelled him into fame.

Lorde Snubbed For “Best Original Song” Nomination

It’s no secret that the Oscars are soon to be here, and the list of nominees was just recently released. Lorde Snub. Unfortunately, Lorde was not on the list for Best Original Song. Although the Oscars are all about acting and directing, you cannot forget who makes the music and soundtracks to the movies. There is a portion of the Oscars that is dedicated to the music makers, and Lorde was not in the category. The freedompop app has all the details. Let’s give a quick rundown on why Lorde should’ve been nominated.

The movie “The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay- Part 1,” did amazing at the box office, which was to be expected. Even if the movie itself was not nominated as a Best Picture, the soundtrack should’ve been nominated for Best Original Song. There were many good songs on the soundtrack, and Lorde is the one who created the entire soundtrack. Lorde is only 18 years old, and in fact, she just turned 18. She was commissioned to create the entire soundtrack for a very popular movie, and she did a great job.

The fact that an 18-year-old could put together an entire soundtrack for a big movie, is impressive on its own. It’s unfortunate that the Oscars have snubbed such a great talent like Lorde, but maybe she’ll be able to be nominated the next time around. There will be another Hunger Games movie coming out, and maybe she’ll do that soundtrack too.
