"A little while back, I did an AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit. I ended up getting a lot of hilarious flak about 'Call Me Maybe,' which inspired me to write a list of instructions on how to create a huge pop song," jokes Ramsay. "I basically went on to write lyrics that explain step by step exactly what's happening in the music at that moment. It's meant to illustrate how big artists do their thing, like a magician revealing his secrets to an audience. It definitely pokes a lot of fun but it's also meant as a tip of the hat to those artists. Above all, it's very me - clever, silly and sassy to the core." Click…Continue

Listen to the new song "You Haunt Me," premiering exclusively on Billboard.com"
Sir Sly's next single, "You Haunt Me," is out next Tuesday! Here's a little preview for you :)
"Though the official remix EP for "Do It Again" is already out: there is, of course, more. While we know Dave Audé for his melodic club tracks with a little bit of gimmick that totally sell his brand of upbeat dance music, he's made a special effort on his remix of "Do It Again." Though this remix was not included on the initial Do It Again remix EP, it is memorable in the way it translates the original into a club house masterpiece."

ELIOT SUMNER ANNOUNCES INFORMATION EP
OUT JULY 29 VIA CHERRYTREE RECORDS
PRESS HERE TO LISTEN TO TITLE TRACK
Eliot Sumner has announced that she will be releasing a brand new 4-song EP on July 29 entitled Information, via Cherrytree. PRESS HERE to listen to the stunning, synth-and-strings driven title track, which was recorded at the Strongroom studios in London.

Eliot says, “This record is a lot more organic. There’s loads of energy. I’ve been listening to loads of Krautrock which has influenced a lot of it. I think it sounds kind of fresh but also quite familiar. It’s the kind of music that I would probably listen to, which is good.”
“Information,” was recorded in one take and is a modern day break-up song about a quest to know everything, thanks to social media. Soaring melodies disguise a darker subject matter in the guitar-driven “Come Friday,” and “Wobbler” tells the story of a person who “kills people, ex-lovers, out of joy,” explains Sumner.
After releasing The Constant in 2010 under the moniker I Blame Coco, Eliot toured for two years, playing headlining shows and festivals all over the world. Since…Continue
