Paramore – “C’est Comme Ça”

Paramore readies their next album This Is Why with the release of its third single, “C’est Comme Ça.” Translated to “it’s like that” in English, frontwoman Hayley Williams shares, “I’m trying to get un-addicted to a survival narrative. The idea of imminent doom is less catastrophic to me than not knowing anything about the future or my part in it. The guys and I are all in much more stable places in our lives than ever before. And somehow that is harder for me to adjust to.”

SG Lewis x Charlotte Day Wilson x Channel Tres – “Fever Dreamer”

SG Lewis enlists Charlotte Day Wilson and Channel Tres for “Fever Dreamer,” the final single before the release of his new album AudioLust & HigherLove. Describing it as ” song about all-consuming admiration for someone,” Lewis adds, “I’ve been a fan of Charlotte’s music for ages now, and have wanted to work on something forever. We met up at my studio in LA, and ‘Fever Dreamer’ was the first idea we started work on. Channel and I work out of the same studios in LA a lot, and he was working in the room above around the time of the Charlotte session. One day he popped his head into the studio, heard the demo of ‘Fever Dreamer,’ and immediately started working on the missing second verse.”

Benny Sings announces his Kenny Beats-produced album Young Hearts, as well as releases the title track. “‘Young Hearts’ is one of my favorite songs on the album,” the artist said in a statement. “Kenny started producing and added Remi Wolf in the chorus. This song is one of the rare occasions where I’m singing in third person, which I really love. It’s about two young people getting addicted to crack – not autobiographical.”
