New Music Video: You Saw The Devil In Me – Liam Bailey

Nottingham soul musician LIAM BAILEY is marching on with his highly anticipated comeback, already garnering support from Clash Magazine, Complex, BBC 1Xtra, Earmilk and SoulBounce, among others, as he gears up to release his fourth studio EP titled Brand New on February 1, 2019. Today, he double backs with the EP’s excellent second single ‘You Saw The Devil In Me’ and its accompanying visuals, premiered via Billboard.

Written by LIAM BAILEY and produced by frequent collaborator on this new project, Rich Cooper, whose previous production credits include work for Banks, Lucy Rose, Billie Marten and Tom Odell, ‘You Saw The Devil In Me’ is an introspective and thought-provoking piano ballad backed by minimalist yet stirring string arrangements and gospel choral backing vocals, over which LIAM BAILEY bares his heart out, about facing his inner demons.

The visuals for ‘You Saw The Devil In Me’ see Liam Bailey collaborating once again with James Beale, who directed the video for his recent single ‘Brother, Why You Gotta Love Her’ featuring Maverick Sabre. Beale also directed the visuals for Temples’ ‘Strange Or Be Forgotten’ and Lion’s ‘Self Control’, as well as previous work for Adidas, Meadowlark and River Island. Filmed in Bulgaria, the visuals are stripped back, and allow for the record to take centre stage and grip the audience.

From his debut EPs, which were released by Amy Winehouse, his UK top 5 single with Chase & Status, and his seminal debut album, to collaborations with the likes of Gorillaz and Salaam Remi, touring with Paloma Faith and Ellie Goulding, and support from Annie Mac, Zane Lowe and Jools Holland, LIAM BAILEY continues to be one of the finest voices and purest talents in British soul…check out the video below…

New Music Video: Queen – Jessie J

After months of fueling excitement and anticipation, JESSIE J unveils an epic four-part rollout for her anxiously awaited fourth full-length release R.O.S.E. [LAVA/Republic Records]. The schedule is as follows: R.O.S.E. (Realisations) out May 22, R.O.S.E (Obsessions) out May 23, R.O.S.E. ( Sex) out May 24, and R.O.S.E. (Empowerment) out May 25.

The QUEEN video celebrates a series of all women from multicultural backgrounds, including Lizzie Velásquez star of the powerful documentary A Brave Heart: The Lizzie Velásquez Story and Fullscreen’s Unzipped. It’s JESSIE J’s rawest and realist statement to date.

JESSIE J first heralded R.O.S.E. with the single ‘Think About That,’ singing an honest lyric giving her heartbeats an insight into her new feel and sound. Followed by the release of ‘Not My Ex’ which has already reached seven million Spotify streams and 20 million YouTube/VEVO views. In addition to working on the anticipated release, JESSIE J also launched a sold out headline tour of intimate venues worldwide, and contributed ‘I Got You (I Feel Good)’ to the Fifty Shades Freed Original Motion Picture soundtrack.

Recently she had tremendous success in China, joining the TV show SINGER – a singing competition where she performed each week in front of a television audience of 250 million with a grand finale viewership of one billion. Not only was JESSIE J the first international artist to ever compete alongside the biggest artists in Asia, but also the first to ever win.
