This album is called SUBSTANCE because it delivers applicable principles while giving listeners music that is enjoyable and uplifting.

After everything that we have gone through over the past two years, I wanted to deliver biblically-based lyrical content that would allow listeners to have their faith fortified and be entertained simultaneously. For me, this is criteria that goes hand in hand.

My hope is that the musicality of SUBSTANCE is so entertaining that people will listen to it over and over again. When something is repetitive, it grabs your spirit. I approach my albums the same way that I approach preaching, and that is by embedding purpose into how the message is organized. I want to take people on a journey where when they reach its end they are better off than when they started, so much so that they want to experience it again. I try to use my God-given gift to create albums with no fillers; you can play any Marvin Sapp album from top to bottom and not want to skip anything. I want people to enjoy listening to my music, and to also have strong takeaways.

That is why I chose to call this album SUBSTANCE. When someone listens to any song on this project, they will be able to take principles from the lyrical content and apply them to their lives. People will hear good music, good singing and a good message.

I am very proud of the process for recording this album. I have always used my platform as a platform for up-and-coming songwriters. For SUBSTANCE, I did something that Ive never done before by inviting new and established songwriters from around the country to come to a writers camp at my home studio. It was a creative environment where all we did was listen to music, pray, write and build upon concepts that were in line with the direction that God had given me for this album. It was a powerful experience. Some of my favorite songs on the album were written by new writers, and Im very proud of the entire project.

My mantra is to not only release good music, but release lyrically well produced, Christ centered, faith-building, churchy but funky entertainment. SUBSTANCE continues this focus. --Marvin Sapp

Mobys eclectic career has cast him in the roles of electronic dance music pioneer, singer and songwriter, producer, activist, and restaurateur, but for his latest venture he presents his music in a whole new light.

Together with Deutsche Grammophon, he is releasing an album of his best known tracks in stunning new arrangements for classical instruments featuring Moby himself and a stellar lineup of collaborators from across the musical spectrum.

Always a daring and imaginative thinker, Mobys first classical collaboration happened in October 2018, when he performed a selection of his songs alongside the LA Phil and conductor and friend Gustavo Dudamel. This was the inspiration for the current project, which features not only full orchestral versions but new electronic arrangements, as well as sophisticated smaller-scale acoustic interpretations.

The 14-track album includes classic Moby songs like Porcelain, Why Does My Heart, and Extreme Ways in innovative new versions, featuring eye-catching collaborations including both Jim James (My Morning Jacket) and Vkingur lafsson on Porcelain; Gregory Porter and Amythyst Kiah on Natural Blues; and Kris Kristofferson as well as original vocalist Mark Lanegan on The Lonely Night. The album concludes with a cover of David Bowies Heroes.

MP3 Album: $10.99 Download

Letter To You is Bruce Springsteens new studio album with the E Street Band, and is a rock album fueled by the band's heart-stopping, house-rocking signature sound. Recorded at his home studio in New Jersey, Letter To You is Springsteens 20th studio album, and is his first album including the E Street Band since 2012s High Hopes and their first performances together since 2016s The River Tour.

I love the emotional nature of Letter To You, says Springsteen. And I love the sound of the E Street Band playing completely live in the studio, in a way weve never done before, and with no overdubs. We made the album in only five days, and it turned out to be one of the greatest recording experiences Ive ever had.

Letter to You includes nine recently written Springsteen songs, as well as new recordings of three of his legendary, but previously unreleased, compositions from the 1970s, Janey Needs A Shooter, If I Was The Priest, and Song For Orphans. Springsteen is joined on Letter To You by Roy Bittan, Nils Lofgren, Patti Scialfa, Garry Tallent, Stevie Van Zandt, Max Weinberg, Charlie Giordano and Jake Clemons. The album was produced by Ron Aniello with Bruce Springsteen, mixed by Bob Clearmountain and mastered by Bob Ludwig.

There are only a handful of living musicians who can continually reinvent themselves year after year, and even fewer still who can claim to have maintained equal degrees of innovation and excellence across a career spanning decades.

Pat Metheny is one of the few artists in the world who can lay claim to such a description. On his latest album, Road To The Sun, Pat Metheny surprises us once again with his seemingly endless ability to harvest new vistas while retaining the instantly recognizable Metheny sound.

With two major new works, performed by five of the world ́s leading guitarists, Metheny charts a new way of obliterating boundaries between genres while simultaneously unveiling new facets of an already expansive personal language.

Grammy-winner Jason Vieaux, described by NPR as perhaps the most precise and soulful classical guitarist of his generation was tapped by Metheny to perform his four-movement solo guitar suite Four Paths Of Light.

The centerpiece of this landmark recording is Road To The Sun, a six-movement piece for fellow Grammy-award winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet LAGQ Metheny describes them as one of the best bands in the world.

In the end, Road To The Sun is nothing if not another truly great Pat Metheny record. It will rank alongside Secret Story, Bright Size Life, 80/81,One Quiet Night, Still Life (talking), Song X, and all the rest as being yet another unexpected and almost willfully inscrutable plot twist, inevitable to a genre with only one common element: Metheny himself.

"The songs that make you love, the ones that make cry and the ones that make you smile, laugh and dance. Music is the soundtrack that plays while we live our lives, and I wanna be there for my fans while they are living through this truly special time that we'll never forget.

Gregory Porter, the worlds best-selling contemporary Jazz/Soul artist with over 3 million worldwide album sales returns with ALL RISE, his sixth studio album. The album marks a return to Porters beloved original songwriting heart-on-sleeve lyrics imbued with everyday philosophy and real-life detail, set to a stirring mix of jazz, soul, blues and gospel. Produce by Troy Miller (Laura Mvula, Jamie Cullum, Emili Sande), the set also represents the evolution of Porters art to something even more emphatic, emotive, intimate, and universal too. After 2017s Nat King Cole & Me, Porter knew two things: one, hed bring in an orchestra for his next LP, and two, the music is medicine. In the spirit of that latter revelation, ALL RISE brims with songs about irrepressible love, plus a little protest, because the road to healing is bumpy.

Since his world-beating 2013 Blue Note debut, Liquid Spirit, which won the Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album, Gregory hasn't let down his legion of fans, whether collaborating with Disclosure on Holding On, releasing his dance hit Liquid Spirit Claptone Remix which became one of the most popular tracks in Ibiza, scoring another Grammy for Take Me to the Alley (2016), or telling his life story through Cole's songbook. Porter is still surprised by his runaway success, but he has a theory: "I was soothed by my voice as a child and I think that's the same thing others get from it. I'm trying to heal myself with these songs."

Not only has Gregory made chart history by bringing jazz back to the masses, graced the iconic Pyramid Stage and the worlds most prestigious gig venues, performed for the Queen, appeared on the biggest TV shows as well as presented his own series (Gregory Porters Popular Voices on BBC Four), 2019 saw the singer launch and host his own podcast, The Hang, featuring such distinguished guests as Annie Lennox and Jeff Goldblum.

The Lion King like the original 1994 versionfeatures unforgettable music by an award-winning team, including Oscar and GRAMMY-winning superstar Elton John and Oscar and GRAMMY-winning lyricist Tim Rice, whove written an uplifting new song, Never Too Late, performed by John, that features an African choir and will appear in the films end credits and also on the Walt Disney Records original motion picture soundtrack.

Just hearing that music strikes you deeply, Favreau said. Even if you dont know the film or stage show, there is a spiritual strength in it. But if you know the film, and if you grew up with this musicnow it can suddenly and immediately evoke the story itself, as well as all the connected memories and emotions that you have from your own past experience with The Lion King, or from the time of your life that you were in, or your childhood, or the life events its connected to.

Added Mitchell Leib, president of music and soundtracks for The Walt Disney Studios, The incredible musical talents who came together to contribute to this project are unparalleled. Jon Favreaus deep love and instinct for musical collaboration inspired Hans Zimmer, Lebo M, Pharrell Williams, Elton John, Tim Rice, Beyonc, Donald Glover and the entire music team to an awesome level of generosity, spirit and commitment, resulting in a powerful journey of song, production and performance.

The Lion King original motion picture soundtrack features new recordings of the original songs written by Elton John and Tim Rice, score by Oscar and GRAMMY-winning composer Hans Zimmer, plus African vocal and choir arrangements by GRAMMY-winning South African producer and composer Lebo M (Rhythm of the Pride Lands). Oscar-nominated and GRAMMY-winning singer, songwriter and producer Pharrell Williams (Hidden Figures/producer, Happy), produced five songs on the soundtrack.

In revisiting the score for The Lion King, Zimmer realized the original themes and music were the emotional spine of the story. He brought back many who worked on the original film, including Lebo M, orchestrator Bruce Fowler, conductor Nick Glennie-Smith, arranger Mark Mancina, plus several singers from the choir including Carmen Twillie (who performed Circle of Life in the 1994 movie).

Zimmer wanted to approach the score differently for the new film and enlisted the Re-Collective Orchestra (led by founders Matt Jones and Stephanie Matthews), along with the Hollywood Studio Symphony (comprised of Los Angeles-based session players), and his band. The goal was to rehearse and record the score like a live concert performance.

Music from the animated film released in 1994 won two Academy Awards (original song and original score), four GRAMMYS and two Golden Globes. The soundtrack was No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart for 10 nonconsecutive weeks and was certified Diamond by the RIAA, for 10 million units sold.

It s the most ambitious project the songwriter has ever taken on, and the first album she's putting out as a fully realized woman. It's also an LP that she worked harder than ever on, re-visiting songs, editing them down, adding new layers, enriching every single moment to make it the most luscious musical experience for her audience. Yuna makes soulful pop that contains the sultriness of Sade, the flair of Aaliyah, and the sweetness of Brandy. Via her three pre-existing albums, Yuna has built her palette of melodic, uplifting soul. Her third album Chapters in 2016 was something of a breakthrough, featuring production from Fisticuffs and features with Usher ("Crush") and Jhene Aiko. Her new album s list of features is mouth-wateringly impressive. It includes: Little Simz, Kyle, G-Eazy, Jay Park and Masego. Together with executive producer Robin Hannibal and a team of producers (Jason "J. Lbs" Pounds, Fisticuffs, Cardiak, Jordan Reyes) she explored sampling culture for the first time. The title Rouge is for the color red, which has been calling to her at this moment. "It's a feeling I'm having right now. I just got married. I've become the woman I've always wanted to be. The whole album is about how I am with myself: I'm comfortable with my relationship, with my focus on my career. It s the color of becoming this woman that I am."

George Benson gets back to Americana basics on Walking to New Orleans, the jazz guitar legend's double-barreled tribute to both piano-pounding hit machine Fats Domino and the original rock guitar hero and poet, Chuck Berry. Walking To New Orleans is out on April 26, 2019 on Mascot Label Group/Provogue Records. The album toggles between tracks written and/or recorded by Berry and Domino as though Benson were moderating a musical conversation between Missouri and Louisiana. It kicks off with a rock-solid rendition of Berry's 1964 post-incarceration story song "Nadine (Is It You?)," which Benson makes his own by scatting in unison with his guitar solo. Then a horn section pumps up Fats's 1951 R&B hit "Rockin' Chair" and his first R&B-pop crossover smash, "Ain't That a Shame," from 1955, with Benson's guitar standing in swingingly for the originals' sax solos. The Chuck Berry songbook is also represented on Walking to New Orleans by the good-timey "You Can't Catch Me," the sinuous "Havana Moon," the rollicking "Memphis, Tennessee," and the bluesy "How You've Changed." Fats Domino weighs in with the rollicking "I Hear You Knocking," "Blue Monday," and the album's iconic title track.

Cruel Country songs and graphics have been featured throughout the bands June European tour and August/September/October North American tour.

A new music video for A Lifetime To Find will be released in conjunction with the pre-order announcement.

Bandleader Jeff Tweedy has commented a length on the concept and recording process of Cruel Country in numerous podcasts, online interviews and print articles:

There have been elements of Country Music in everything weve ever done. Weve never been particularly comfortable with accepting that definition, the idea that I was making Country Music. But now, having been around the block a few times, were finding it exhilarating to free ourselves within the form, and embrace the simple limitation of calling the music were making Country.

Jon Pareles in The New York Times wrote: Wilco makes an understated magnum opus. Its tone is naturalistic and understated; the album was recorded largely with Wilco playing live in the studio as a six-man band, quietly savoring the chance to make music together after pandemic isolation.

Jon Dolan in Rolling Stone wrote: Their latest is a beautifully rootsy album with a broken sense of patriotic concern. ****

Pick a subjectany subject, and those who wield power will do all they can to make it a divisive issue, encouraging people to pick a side, insisting that their viewpoint is the only correct one. This record is a critique of this dangerous status quo we are living in. - Disturbed

Melissa Carper

Ramblin' Soul [LP]

Vinyl: $23.98 UNAVAILABLE

After the success of her critically-acclaimed 2021 release Daddy s Country Gold, Melissa Carper, dubbed HillBillie Holiday by friend and collaborator Chris Scruggs, was eager to get back in the studio. With co-producers Andrija Tokic (St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Hurray For The Riff Raff) and Dennis Crouch (The Time Jumpers) behind the boards again at Tokics analog paradise The Bomb Shelter in Nashville, Carper assembled that same crew of magical music makers - plus a few more - to embark on her newest effort, Ramblin Soul, set for release November 18th via Thirty Tigers.

Carpers deep, old-timey music roots were firmly planted as a child, playing upright bass and singing in her familys traveling country band in rural Nebraska. Her love of country classics was cultivated as she laid beneath the console listening to her parents record collection. Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Ray Charles, Elvis Presley, and more became the soundtrack of her youth. When Carpers father gifted her a collection of Jimmie Rodgers recordings, she began to find her voice and calling as a songwriter.

Carper attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln on a music scholarship, and spent much of her time in the music library, instinctively drawn to the great jazz classics and jazz vocalists such as Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, and Nat King Cole. She also discovered Lead Belly, uncovering a deep well within when singing his songs. Carper stands firmly on the shoulders of American ramblers, crooners, and songsters - the building blocks of her musical foundation. In 2020, grappling with the loss of regular gigs, Carper and Patek moved to a friends farm near Austin, working in exchange for housing, organic vegetables, and fresh, country air. The simpler life afforded Carper the space and rejuvenation needed to channel her muse, and begin writing for her next album.

I had a handful of songs about rambling around and living a free life that I wanted to weave through the album, Carper recalls. I wrote the title track driving back home to Texas, and it felt like the seeds of the next album were planted. I also knew I wanted Ramblin Soul to have a different feel than Daddys Country Gold, with more upbeat and diverse styles and grooves. Ramblin Soul features a co-write with life long ramblin buddy and bandmate Gina Gallina, a song penned by friend and frequent collaborator Brennen Leigh; a reimagined classic from folk pioneer Odetta; and ten Carper originals. The album ventures into blues, early rock and roll, and old school soul, along with Carpers signature styles of country, western swing, and jazz. Carpers lifelong, steadfast listening has come to fruition in the songs on Ramblin Soul. Her childhood love of the family record collection planted the seeds of what is her own bountiful orchard today.
