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!

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!

Taylor Swift’s New Album “1989” To Be Released October 27th!

Taylor has been teasing us with “big news” for a few weeks now.  All was finally revealed in a Live Stream today hosted by Yahoo!   And when Taylor says big news, she MEANS it.  She kept dropping surprise after surprise, just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be any more news.  In case you missed it, here’s what you need to know!

Taylor’s 5th studio album will be released on October 27th!  The album, named “1989,” gets its title both from the year Taylor was born, and for the “late 80s pop” inspiration for the album.  That’s right: this is the first full, purely pop album from Taylor.  (Didn’t we all know it was headed in that direction?)  There will be a deluxe edition available, with 3 extra tracks, and each physical copy of the album will include 13 Polaroids.

While there isn’t a tracklisting for the album yet (she can’t reveal everything!)  You can pre-order the album on iTunes now and get an instant download of her new single, “Shake It Off.”

Taylor also performed “Shake It Off,” during the live stream.  And then she dropped the video.  Watch it below!

While we’re a little sad Taylor is leaving her country roots behind completely (her first album will always be our favorite), we’re excited to hear the next evolution of her sound.  And, as she likes to follow the same patterns, we’re pretty sure that we’ll have a date in 2015 at the Prudential Center for the “1989” Tour.  (Tour dates were the one thing she didn’t announce today…she covered literally everything else you could hope for!)  Taylor did reveal that she will be hosting a contest and giving 1,989 lucky fans the chance to win a meet & greet on tour.  Visit TaylorSwift.com for more info on how to enter!

This weekend T. Swfit will be performing at the MTV Video Music Awards.  Tune in to MTV on Sunday, August 24th at 9PM EST to watch!
