Justin Bieber has revealed his long-awaited music video for ‘Company’. You can watch it in the player above.
The video, directed by Justin’s personal videographer Rory Kramer is a collection of rare, un-released footage taken over the last year during the creation of Justin’s global number 1 Def Jam Recordings album ‘Purpose’, and his sold-out Purpose World Tour.
“Personally, I love this video because it’s an honest look at my journey,” said Justin. “The process of putting together this album and this tour – surrounded by people I love to be with – has been really special. I’m proud of it, it’s been a lot of fun and lot of hard work, and I think that really shows in video. I hope my fans like it as I much as I do, because it’s really all for you.”
Not only that but Justin just recently launch an emoji app that allows fans to access to hundreds of exclusive high-quality, premium stickers, gifs and expressions. The app immediately shot to number 1 on Apple’s chart.
On Saturday, Justin continues the sold-out North American leg of the Purpose World Tour in Winnepeg, Canada. The tour will continue throughout June and July, culminating in two sold-out nights at the world’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden in New York City.
In August the tour will visit Japan, and then run through Europe later in the year.
Following on from the huge success of Foot Locker’s summer Sneaker Mix campaign, during which it created the world’s first trainer mixing deck, Foot Locker promises some unique, one-off DJ experiences for the ‘Sneaker Mix 2013’ tour.
The tour features the breakthrough British electronic rock band Modestep for an exclusive European DJ Tour. Tony and Josh from the band will be showcasing their love for sneakers by sporting Foot Locker’s latest exclusives, the KDI Nike Air Max 90, Van Locus and Adidas Hardcourts while on the Sneaker Mix tour.
This also follows Modestep’s current success within the industry and their recent debut album release that took the dubstep scene by its throat and gave it a clean jerk.
The album Evolution Theory was released back in February 2013 and features their hit singles ‘Sunlight’ and ‘Feel Good’.
The Sneaker Mix 2013 tour kicks off in Berlin and gives ticket holders a musical experience that they will never forget, and also gives them exclusive behind the scenes access and even a chance to meet the band.
‘The Sneaker Mix’ tour will start in Berlin on the 17th October, travel over to Madrid (25th October), stop off at Milan (14th November), swing by Paris (22nd November) before ending in London (29th November).
A guilty pleasure has arrived this week. Second name Williams, first name Robbie. I know what you’re thinking, well, no I don’t really. And I don’t really care, as the new Robbie Williams track ‘Be A Boy’ uncontrollably forced my body in a spasm of forwards and backwards motion whilst brushing my teeth this morning. Do I lead a sad, non-existent life? Yes, but that is beside the point. Opening my ears to something I would not normally listen to helped don a new 2013 for music listening. It’s opened a part of my ears that haven’t been flicked in a while, or even wet willied. In fact yes, Robbie Williams’ new single ‘Be A Boy’ (out this week, obviously) is like a musical wet willy. You never want one, they are all moist and mingin, but you somewhat enjoy it after. It leaves a kind of fresh feeling in your lobes. A wake-up call some may say. Check it out below and leave your wet willy posts at the bottom of this article:
So yeah, that’s out this week. We also have the ‘Popilepsy’ sounds from the next big thing from a Lady and a Boy, MS MR. Their new single ‘Fantasy’ is out this week and plays around with a ‘Noir-Pop’ sound that is guaranteed to get under your skin after a few spins. You’ll have to wait until May for their first full length Second Hand Rapture, which is more than enough time to build up some more warm online-hype surrounding them. Not that their million plays on YouTube for their ‘Hurricane’ video hasn’t done that already. Watch a cheerleader chuck up some sparkly things in the video for ‘Fantasy’ below:
Sadly, the past week has been so crammed with new music that our PO Box is actually looking to claim insurance for being over-used. As well as my CD player in my PC, it’s now running at overcapacity and deciding to jam the computer up completely whenever it opens the tray of wonderment. Plus it makes an awful noise when it opens. The rest of the releases will have to wait for my undervalued opinion. Robbie and MS MR destroyed my iTunes (yes I still use iTunes, none of this streaming bullcrap).

With almost 100k plays since its 20-hour-ago upload, ‘Affection‘ is kicking up a stink for the Crystal Castles fans. This is the next track revealed off the highly anticipated new album (III). Luckily you won’t have to wait too long for the album, as the release date is only a few weeks away (November 12th).
One thing you do know from the teaser tracks from the forthcoming album is that Crystal Castles’ sound hasn’t changed much from their original sound. This isn’t a bad thing at all, however it does leave you with the feeling that it may just be a record dropping back to their first full-length, self-titled album Crystal Castles.
‘Affection‘ has all of the same ingredients as the older tracks; distant reverberated vocals (of which you have no idea what they are saying), 808 drum snaps and gated synths. As a fan of the previous material from the Castles, it’s no surprise that ‘Affection‘ has re-energized my want, and need to listen to the new and old album. Check it out below:
03. Wrath of God
05. Pale Flesh
06. Sad Eyes
09. Violent Youth
12. Child I Will Hurt You
The artwork for the forthcoming album is an award winning photograph taken by the photojournalist Samuel Arand and features Fatima al-Qaws cradling her son Zayed who is suffering from the effects of tear gas after participating in a street demonstration in Sanaa, Yemen.
Crystal Castles will be playing a select number of UK tour dates in November:
22/11 – Institute – Birmingham
23/11 – Norwich U.E.A. – Norwich
24/11 – O2 Academy Brixton – London
26/11 – O2 ABC – Glasgow
27/11 – O2 Academy – Leeds
28/11 – Manchester Academy – Manchester
