Emeli Sande Releases Self-Produced New Single, ‘Look What You’ve Done’

Published

on

Emeli Sande

Today, internationally-renowned British singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé has shared her latest single ‘Look What You’ve Done’ via Chrysalis Records. The self-produced garage-inspired track is the second taste of new music from this new chapter of Emeli’s career – an era she describes as a “rebirth” that sees her freeing from the expectations of others by flexing her holistic skills as a songwriter, producer and vocalist in new ways.

“‘Look what you’ve done’ marks a big milestone for me. It’s my first release that I have produced and it feels so good to have my full creative fingerprint on it.” Emeli says, “I first wrote this song in Switzerland, sat at my piano staring out at a gorgeous lake surrounded by beautiful snow tipped mountains. The song is about the complete surrender we experience when falling in love and explores the euphoria which accompanies that loss of control in both mind and body. I hope it makes people fall in love, dream and of course dance!”

‘Look What You’ve Done’ follows on from previous single ‘Family,’ Emeli’s triumphant first taste of new music in two years that she describes as “‘a new beginning on many levels for me. It’s an ode to resilience, rebirth, and renewal.”

‘Look What You’ve Done’ is out everywhere now

Travis Scott just announced the lineup for this year’s Astroworld Festival

Published

on

exas-born, GRAMMY Award-nominated, multi-platinum hip-hop artist and business mogul, Travis Scott has just announced the full music lineup for his third annual Astroworld Festival. In celebration, Scott has also released a very limited number of additional tickets to the event, which are on sale now at AstroworldFest.com.

 

The largest artist-curated music festival in the world, as well as the largest music event in Scott’s hometown of Houston, will return soon to NRG Park on Friday, November 5, and Saturday, November 6. Similar to years past, fans at Astroworld will soon be treated to a festival experience like no other as every detail is an extension of Scott’s personal creativity and unique vision.

 

WEEKEND MUSIC LINEUP

Scott will soon welcome some of the most sought-after names in hip-hop and R&B to perform, alongside a number of critically acclaimed and creative artists that Scott personally hand-picked to join in on the fall festivities.

 

The full music lineup is listed below in A-Z order and available online at AstroworldFest.com:

  • 21 Savage
  • Baby Keem
  • Bad Bunny
  • BIA
  • Chief Keef
  • Don Toliver
  • Earth, Wind & Fire
  • Houston All-Stars
  • Lil Baby
  • Master P
  • Roddy Ricch
  • Sheck Wes
  • Sofaygo
  • SZA
  • Teezo Touchdown
  • Toro Y Moi
  • Travis Scott **
  • Tame Impala
  • Young Thug
  • Yves Tumor

**Denotes festival headliner and founder

 

LIMITED TICKET SALE

To commemorate the lineup news, the festival has also released today a limited number of two-day GA tickets to the 2021 event, which are on sale now at AstroworldFest.com. Prices begin at $349.99, although fans are encouraged to purchase immediately as ticket supply is extremely limited.

 

During the general ticket on-sale last spring, the entire weekend event sold out in under one hour without a music performance lineup attached. Scott’s festival has sold out in advance of the lineup reveal every year since inception, although 2021 set the record for the fastest sell-out yet.

 

FAN EXPERIENCE

Continuing a nod to the NRG’s previous tenant (Six Flags AstroWorld), the festival has again invested significant real estate to build out an amusement park and carnival footprint for the 2021 event.  This year’s fest will feature more than 30 custom carnival games and rides, including a roller coaster, Ferris wheel, and bumper cars – all of which are designed to entertain fans when they need a break from music.

 

Fans participating in the carnival games will have the opportunity to win one of 100+ different custom Astroworld prizes, which include limited-edition items that won’t be available anywhere else.

 

Participating carnival sponsors Raising Cane’s, Nike’s Jordan, and the Houston Astros have all kicked in grand prizes as well. These special prizes include the opportunity to eat free Cane’s for a year, score a pair of limited-edition Jordans, or win tickets to a future baseball game.

 

EVENT BACKGROUND

Over 100,000 fans from across the globe are slated to attend the third-year music festival, which returns to Scott’s hometown of Houston. The 2021 event features an expanded two-day format on Friday, November 5 and Saturday, November 6 due to overwhelming demand from fans.

 

With a new creative theme, “Open Your Eyes To A Whole New Universe”, the critically-acclaimed rapper turned mainstream culture phenom will once again curate and produce his very own larger-than-life multi-stage music festival in his hometown of Houston, while also bringing back the beloved spirit and nostalgia of the legendary and now-defunct amusement park – AstroWorld ­– that Scott visited countless times as a child.

 

During the festival’s last iteration in November 2019, the one-day event played host to over 50,000 fans from across the globe for Scott’s special celebration of hip-hop, pop music, and Houston culture. As Scott himself solely curates and hand-selects the festival’s music lineup, past festival performances have featured some of today’s most sought-after music acts beyond just hip-hop and R&B including Post Malone, Rosalia, Pharrell Williams, Lil Wayne, Megan Thee Stallion, Young Thug, and Playboi Carti, among many others.

 

A portion of proceeds from the event will be donated to the festival’s official charity partner, Cactus Jack Foundation. Founded by Scott, the nonprofit organization seeks to empower and enrich the lives of youth by providing access to education and creative resources to ensure long-term success.
