Atlanta’s very own Tony Shhnow releases new single “Keep In Touch”

Published

on

Tony Shhnow, a staple in Atlanta’s underground hip-hop scene, has just released his new single and visual for “Keep In Touch” leading up to the release of his new project Reflexions, out 6/9. The suave new track showcases Tony’s glossy flows & braggadocios delivery over a silky smooth instrumental. The waining keys & understated electric guitar pair perfectly with Tony’s confident cadence, amounting to a track that seamlessly delivers Tony’s signature swagger and exceptional ingenuity. The vintage visual features Tony channeling his inner 90’s R&B star––rapping his boastful verse inside a low-lit bar alongside a pool table, all while sporting a classic leather jacket, gold-plated glasses & sleek white turtleneck. “Keep In Touch” serves as a perfect sampler for the unparalleled craftsmanship and forthright creativity he’ll be delivering with his forthcoming project Reflexions on 6/9.

If the past few years have taught us anything, it’s that trying to keep up with Tony Shhnow is impossible. In the span of 12 months, Tony dropped a whopping 7 successful projects, a feat that has truly separated him from the pack. As described by Pitchfork, “Tony’s consistent and overwhelming output has quickly made him a breakout of Atlanta rap’s underground.” Through the projects he’s dropped in 2021, including 48 Laws of Power, 48 Laws of Flower 2 (Art of Production), Authentic Goods, RPS N PLAN BS ll with 10kDunkin, Dis Should Hold You Over 2, and kicking off 2022 with Kill Streak 2 (Deluxe), Tony has been releasing music in the vein of Atlanta’s trap superstars of the 2010s and has no plans on stopping. Tony continued his hot streak in 2022 by hitting the road with budding Boston rapper Cousin Stizz for a multi-city tour this Spring. Earlier this month, Tony released “Last Chance” (feat. Zelooperz), the lead single for his forthcoming project Reflexions, out 6/9. Through his gripping visuals and non-stop work ethic, Tony has solidified himself in the next generation of Atlanta artists poised for stardom.

Black Eyed Peas, Pitbull, Stone Temple Pilots, Bush, Mod Sun, Girlfriends and more are set to headline the first-everAtlantis Concert for Earth, a nonprofit concert and global conservation celebration taking place July 22-23, 2022 in partnership with and from the Azores Islands, Portugal. Sting will provide a special virtual performance. Nicole Scherzinger will also be performing as well as hosting. The event will feature performances, both live and virtual, from iconic artists and showcase the incredible solution-driven work of leading conservationists and organizations from around the world – the true ‘Rockstars for Earth.’ Featured organizations include Re:wild, Sea Legacy, Blue Azores, The Ocean Cleanup, Innerspace, Juccce, The White Feather Foundation—founded by Concert for Earth Ambassador Julian Lennon, Grounded, Earth Uprising— founded by Concert for Earth Ambassador Alexandria Villaseñor, Earth Percent and more. The event will inspire individuals to take action and become Rockstars for Earth themselves. Select artist performances will be livestreamed worldwide for free on Saturday, July 23rd via Veeps: HERE. In-person tickets are available to those local to the Azores HERE.

The zero- to low emission hybrid event is financially made possible by Atlantis Entertainment co-founder, Steven Schuurman. Any remaining carbon emissions from the event will be calculated, reduced, and where possible removed with support from A Greener Festival (AGF), a not-for-profit company committed to helping events, festivals and venues around the world become more sustainable and to reduce environmental impacts.

“Nature is the true headliner at the Atlantis Concert for the Earth,” said will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas. “It is a surreal other-worldly experience to perform on the rim of an extinct volcanic crater to celebrate the Rockstars of Conservation while using music as a megaphone to call attention to the need for global conservation.”

“Biodiversity, from wildlife to ecosystems, underpins the existence of life on Earth,” said Wes Sechrest, chief scientist and CEO of participating partner Re:wild. “We are excited to be a part of Concert for Earth, a celebration of the symphony of life on our unique planet and an invitation to come together to protect and restore nature for the benefit of biodiversity, the climate, and all of us”.

To spread the message of conservation and celebrate the inspirational stories and work of the Rockstars of Conservation, Atlantis Concert for Earth will be livestreamed via Veeps, a premium concert streaming service, for free to people worldwide. Viewers can access the content on Veeps.com or via the Veeps app on Apple TV, Roku, iOS, and Android. The livestream will be executive produced by Fortress Entertainment Group.

Embracing Concert for Earth’s inclusive mission to create awareness, educate and inspire action, there will be a ‘Click to Donate’ option during the livestream. 100% of donations from viewers will go directly to supporting the inspirational, solution-driven work of the festival’s conservation partners.

“I love Concert for Earth’s inclusive mission of finding balance with our planet and leaning into our passions and superpowers to inspire people to become Rockstars For Earth! The world is changed by our actions and not our opinions,” said Nicole Scherzinger

Atlantis Concert for Earth is taking place in Sete Cidades, in Azores, Portugal. The pristine venue is a natural amphitheater, nestled along two lakes inside an ancient volcano crater. With breathtaking 360-degree views, Atlantis Concert for Earth is the only concert for planet Earth with a location as visually stunning as this ecologically rich setting.

Atlantis Concert for Earth was created by Atlantis Entertainment, a full-service media, tv & film production company and record label founded by some of the most successful names in the music, film & television and tech industries, who also share a passion for conservation. The event was conceptualized by Atlantis Entertainment CEO and co-founder Nuno Bettencourt, an Azorean-born and Grammy-nominated multi-platinum artist, songwriter and producer known for his work with Extreme, Rihanna, Robert Palmer, Perry Ferrell and Janet Jackson, along with fellow co-founders Rene M. Rigal, an award winning television, film and content producer and the former Chief Creative Officer of Virgin Produced and President of State Street Pictures (Fox), and Steven Schuurman high-tech entrepreneur and philanthropist, co-founder of Elastic (NYSE: ESTC). With an all-star lineup booked by music industry veteran and talent booker, Scott Igoe, the concert will make “Earth the Headliner” by inspiring action and hope to bring humans back into balance with Earth.

“These days, words Climate and Climate Crisis trigger so many different emotions from all walks of life,” said Bettencourt, who has been working for over a decade to bring Concert For Earth to fruition. “It shouldn’t matter who you voted for, we don’t judge what your political color is internationally or, here in the U.S. if you are Republican, Democrat, Black, white, Hispanic, rich or poor. Because whatever we are, whether we like it or not, we share the same air, the same water and the same soil. We have all heard about the urgency, but fear is not the answer. Instead,  together during Concert for Earth we are taking our universal language and power of music to celebrate the Conservationists and Entrepreneurs from around the world who are game changers leading the way with real, tangible solutions to flip the current narrative of climate and conservation from blame, anger, and doom; to positivity and hope by shining a light on inspirational SOLUTIONS to get us back in balance with our planet.  It’s time to stop telling everyone how we are all going to die, but instead show them how we’re all going to live.”
