Jake Miller To Release “Lion Heart” EP November 4th!

When Jake Miller started teasing a “huge announcement,” we were hoping for new music.  And we were right!  Jake is releasing the “Lion Heart” EP on November 4th on iTunes!  You can also pickup the physical copy in stores on November 24th (just so you have something for your bae to sign next time he is in town).  Stay tuned for details on the album cover & track listing!  He posted this photo, too, which has nothing to do with the EP, but you can just enjoy.

The Friday Five: Fall Album Releases

Fall is here, which means there’s a chill in the air, everything is pumpkin flavored, and it’s time to savor those last moments outdoors.   Here’s some new music for you to listen to while you sip that pumpkin spice latte, and pretend winter is never going to happen.

1.  Weezer – “Everything Will Be Alright In The End”
Due October 7th – Pre-Order
We love to rock out like it’s 1994, and have high hopes for this album from one of our favorite bands for the last two decades (!!)  Also, Halloween costume ideas:  Go as Rivers Cuomo or the awesome monster from the album cover.

2. Hoodie Allen – “People Keep Talking”
Due October 14th – Pre-Order
We keep talking about the awesome videos Hoodie has released to go along with the album, like his latest for “Act My Age.”  He’s also a perfect example of an independent artist who is great at giving fans what they want, and is slowly building up to the album release with more content, contests and interactive ideas (like inviting fans to leave voicemails which could end up on the album)

3. Sam Hunt – “Montevallo” 
Due October 27th
We can’t say enough good things about Sam Hunt.  He is definitely THE country artist to watch right now.  His single “Leave The Night On” recently went gold, and the “X2C” EP has been holding place in the Top 40 chart since its release in August.

4. Taylor Swift – “1989”
Due October 27th – Pre-Order
We’ll just have to shake off the fact that Taylor isn’t making country music anymore, but will definitely be giving this album a chance as we’re curious to see what she will come up with!

5. Nick Jonas – “Nick Jonas”
Due November 11th
The Jonas Brothers supposedly split over “musical differences” last year.  Now we can finally see what direction Nick was hoping to take the band (hint: it’s nothing like the Administration..)  Joe, we hope you’re next.  (More “Love Slayer”?)

Nick & Knight Celebrate Album Release at Highline Ballroom

Backstreet Boys’ resident heartthrob and newlywed Nick Carter and New Kids On The Block’s Jordan Knight had so much fun on the NKOTBSB tour they decided to team up and keep the party going.  Nick & Knight are teaming up for an album and tour this fall. The duo celebrated the release of their debut album with a party at Highline Ballroom in NYC.

Nick and Jordan performed quite a few  songs from the album including “Switch”, “Halfway There” (with Jordan on piano) and  “Deja Vu” which was co-written by Brandyn Burnette!  They also took questions from the fans, revealing more about their upcoming tour. (Trust us, it sounds amazing!)  Jonathan Knight came out to support his brother and even mingled with the crowd, taking selfies with everyone.  Nick brought out his own laptop and did double-duty, showing off his DJ skills during the release party.

Nick and Jordan even previewed some choreography they’ve been working on for the tour! Watch a live performance of “Switch” below! (The track, one of our favorites on the album, was co-written by Bruno Mars)

They said they will play solo material for the Nick & Knight tour later this fall and topped the evening off with Jordan performing “Give It To You.”  We are still fangirling over this, because this was our JAM in 1999, and we voted for it on “TRL” almost daily.

AJR To Release Infinity EP on September 23rd!

While we have to wait a bit longer for the release of AJR’s debut album, “Living Room,” we’ll still be getting some new music this month!  The indie pop trio, brothers Adam, Jack and Ryan Met, announced that they will release the “Infinity EP” on September 23rd.   The EP will feature their next single, “Infinity,” as well as fan favorites “Alice By The Hudson” and “3AM.”  There’s even a remix of their hit “I’m Ready” by the guys themselves. (Have you entered their remix contest yet?)  Check out the tracklisting below.  You can pre-order the EP on iTunes or Amazon now!

AJR “Infinity EP” Tracklisting
1. “Infinity”
2. “Alice By The Hudson”
3. “Pitchfork Kids”
4. “3AM”
5. “I’m Ready” (Remix by AJR)

AJR’s influences include Imagine Dragons, Kanye West, and the Beach Boys.  The band manages to sound like each one of them, and yet none of them at all, as they have a sound that’s all their own.   The brothers wrote, mixed, produced and recorded the songs on the EP from their living room in NYC.  One of our favorite tracks, “Alice By The Hudson,” sounds like a modern day version of “Surfer Girl.”  Watch a performance of the song below.

AJR will be heading out on tour this Fall, stay tuned for tour dates!  You can pickup a copy of the “I’m Ready EP” on iTunes or Amazon now.  Be sure to follow AJR & Secret Fangirls for more updates!

Nick & Knight Album Release Party at Highline Ballroom 9/3!

We’re less than 2 weeks away from the release of Nick & Knight’s album, and what better way to celebrate than with an album release party at one of our favorite NYC venues, Highline Ballroom?   The party (not clear if they’ll be performing or not since any concert with Nick Carter and Jordan Knight is a PARTY) will be on Wednesday, September 3rd.

Nick & Knight’s self titled album will be released on September 2nd.  You can pre-order on iTunes now!  Watch the video for their single “One More Time” below.

Tickets and VIP Packages go on sale this Saturday, August 23rd at 10AM at NickAndKnight.com.

Joel Crouse Releases Debut Album “Even The River Runs”

Singer Joel Crouse is making a name for himself in the country world and setting his sights on the top of the charts with his debut album.  When fans were able to purchase “Even The River Runs” on iTunes at midnight, the album climbed up to #6 on the country charts and it kept pushing its way upward as release day dawned.

Joel wrote or co-wrote every song on the promising debut effort, which is compiled of songs about the struggles of growing up and growing apart.  He’s already opened for country superstars like Taylor Swift, The Bad Perry, and even Darius Rucker.  Crouse isn’t one of those “cover a song on YouTube” stars, he took the time to build up his fan base grass roots style: in dive bars and on the road.

Watch the official lyric video for Joel Crouse’s single “Why God Made Love Songs” below.

Pick up a copy of “Even The River Runs” from iTunes or Amazon now!
