0809 吳青峰偕同旅美導演共同策劃 華語樂壇第一支融冰紀錄片MV

吳青峰偕同旅美導演共同策劃華語樂壇第一支融冰紀錄片MV青峰豁出去挑戰人體極限極冷與極熱交叉演出<太空>MV“冰封”拍攝15小時凍傷不喊卡台北和古巴二地拍攝 真人原型冰雕“冰峰”奇景登上古巴當地新聞 由吳青峰偕同旅美導演共同策劃之最新單曲<太空>MV,原訂於9日於電影院舉辦特映會,卻因為利奇馬颱風攪局而取消,該MV為青峰首度挑戰自我體能極限,於製片團隊量身特製的大型冰雕中,進行長時間非人道的拍攝,每一個鏡頭,青峰都必須鑽入人型冰雕中,前胸貼後背的冰凍狀況下進行拍攝工作,導演為了維持冰雕透明度以便讓鏡頭捕捉到“冰封青峰”的唯美鏡頭,設定片場維持零下溫度,所有工作人員以極地裝置雪衣裹身,唯有青峰,只能長時間從頭到腳全身貼著冰塊,在幽閉環境進行拍攝工作,每一次導演喊卡,青峰就立即被送入後台以五十度以上熱烤機器高溫處理,拍攝過程極為艱辛,期間無數次被工作人員發現凍傷,青峰也堅稱:「還行,挺的住。」 為了展現<太空>這首歌的意境以及雙關語,青峰與旅美導演洪詩婷不斷討論MV拍攝內容,最後青峰選定導演大膽提案,於台北、古巴二地拍攝類記錄片式MV,決議以人型冰塊包覆青峰,記錄青峰於冰塊中一起完好到融冰瓦解的過程;此外,也挑戰把同樣的拍攝複製於古巴“哈瓦那”,在一個人們沒有見過冰塊的環境中,記錄古巴當地人與青峰冰雕互動的過程。洪詩婷導演曾在國外勇奪奧斯卡金像獎搖籃之稱的學生奧斯卡獎(Student Academy Awards),吳青峰直白表示因自己一直欣賞導演拍攝過的許多幻奇角度的作品,如:Of Monsters and Men “Alligator”及Sigor Rós - Ég anda (film experiment series)…等,特地力邀導演跨刀合作幫忙,而這也是洪詩婷導演首次和亞洲歌手合作的第一支MV,導演這次為了用紀錄片的方式講述《太空》MV,更長途跋涉,親自帶著團隊和製冰師傅來到“極熱”的世界-古巴首都“哈瓦那”,團隊抵達哈瓦那後,在缺乏物資以及沒有通訊網路的環境下,於當地進行二個星期拍攝工作,有趣的是,古巴當地長年如夏,據記錄,居民上次見到這麼大的冰塊已是12年前,青峰冰雕因此造成市民圍觀,也登上了哈瓦那當地新聞 為了製造青峰人型冰雕,製作團隊從掃瞄青峰3D立體模型開始,過程也相當不簡單,因為青峰必須要維持一個擁抱的姿勢3個小時不能動,連呼吸都被要求越微弱越好,否則電腦無法讀取精細的身形資料。看到MV成品後的青峰也感性的謝謝導演用極冷與極熱的紀錄片形式來呈現<太空>,直說:「很多東西都像是我應該要去面對的冰,心裡的冰塊也會跟著融化。」 颱風雖然吹走了吳青峰<太空>首映會,卻吹不走青峰所帶領的音樂熱潮,全新個人專輯《太空人》於昨(9日)夜凌晨零時整點推出預購活動,半夜一上線立刻造成系統大當機,造成歌迷一片哀號擔心搶不到預購,許多歌迷也對於實惠的價格感到驚喜,擔心青峰投入太多心力於個人專輯中而回不了本,而紛紛號召其他樂迷朋友以行動支持青峰作品,也讓該預購活動秒登各平台冠軍。 照片:環球音樂

JAMES Collaborates With Former U-Kiss Member, Kevin Woo

JAMES Collaborates With Former U-Kiss Member, Kevin Woo“FALLING” is about that feeling of helplessness when you try to forget someone you’re in love with. Even though it’s a love song and the lyrics might sound a little sad, JAMES wanted it to feel good and fell in love with this one snare he had that helped the track really groove. Because of his hand injury, he couldn’t play the guitar himself but he had his friend David Dag Lee from college lay down some ideas. “I feel like this track is relatable to anyone who has ever felt helpless, and especially anyone who has fallen in love,” explained JAMES.Stream “FALLING” here:https://james.lnk.to/FALLINGPR “I had been talking to Kevin about collaborating on a track for a while, but when I came up with this hook I thought the contrast in our voices would make this song really strong. I flew to Korea on my birthday and recorded him a couple days after. He’s definitely a professional and stayed open minded to all the suggestions I had while directing his vocals.”

ELTON JOHN’S EPIC MUSICAL FANTASY ‘ROCKETMAN: MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE’ IS OUT

In celebration of Paramount Pictures’ release in UK cinemas on 22nd May, it sees celebrated producer andcomposer Giles Martin re-interpreting and re-imagining Elton’s iconic hits, tailoring the music specifically to support the narrative of the upcoming major motion picture, with a truly show stopping vocal performance from lead actor Taron Egerton. Building from a woozy, submerged opening, ‘Rocket Man’ is a stunning interpretation of Elton’s 1972 classic, one that starts in the despairing depths of a swimming pool before transporting to it’s triumphant climax at Dodgers Stadium.  ‘Rocketman: Music From The Motion Picture’ is available to pre-order now, and ‘Rocket Man’ is now available to stream.Pre-order “Rocketman: Music From The Motion Picture” album here:https://UMM.lnk.to/rocketmanPRElton John says: 'It was so important that the music I composed and recorded had to be sung by Taron. I wanted his interpretation of me, through Bernie’s lyrics & my music - not just acting. I left Taron in the hands of Giles Martin, who I trusted implicitly because he's brilliant. I didn't want to be in Taron's shadows, watching over the process, I trusted them to do what they needed to do, artistically, and listening back I've been astonished with the results. Getting the music right was the most important thing, as the songs in the film are integral to the story.' Taron Egerton says: 'The beauty of having Elton involved with the film is that we've been able to work with him to see how far we can take these classic songs. Giles Martin has impeccable taste and massive skills to bring the songs to a place where they are faithful and daring as well.' Tasked with taking Elton’s unparalleled back catalogue and reimagining it to fit the film’s narrative, Martin worked closely with the filmmakers, supervising all of the music for the production and pulling a vocal masterclass from Taron in the studio. From transforming ‘Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting’ into an epic ensemble piece, to morphing ‘I Want Love’ into a heart-breaking moment of conflict around little Reggie’s family meal, each track has been sculpted to form a unique part of the narrative of this most incredible of stories. The soundtrack also contains a brand new Elton John and Bernie Taupin composition ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ performed by Elton and Taron Egerton. The album is produced by Giles Martin (except (I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ co-produced by Giles Martin and Greg Kurstin) and was recorded between 2017 and 2019 at London’s legendary Abbey Road Studios and AIR Studios. Executive Album Producers are Elton John, David Furnish, Matthew Vaughn and Dexter Fletcher.Movie Info : https://www.aforadio.com/movies/rocketman

吴亦凡 Kris Wu 全新单曲《大碗宽面》无预警上线

吴亦凡全新单曲《大碗宽面》无预警上线  浓郁中国风突破想象吴亦凡全新音乐作品《大碗宽面》震撼发行  尽显愈战愈勇心路历程音乐制作人、唱作人吴亦凡全新单曲《大碗宽面》无预警强势上线。吴亦凡包揽该曲的词曲创作及制作,音乐风格上将东西方音乐元素巧妙融合。区别于此前发布的中国风歌曲《天地》,在这首《大碗宽面》中吴亦凡更多地透露出跳跃洒脱的气质,在原本的中国风曲风上突破创新,通过音乐表达内心的无畏豁达。   全新单曲《大碗宽面》的创作动机并非一时兴起,灵感来源于两年前吴亦凡参加某综艺节目时他在扯面店边扯面边即兴来的一段陕西方言Rap:“你看这个面它又长又宽,就像这个碗它又大又圆……”在筹备首次演唱会期间,吴亦凡又想起了两年前的这段即兴发挥,思考不如将这段方言Rap创作成一首完整的歌,于是就有了全新单曲《大碗宽面》。其实当时这段即兴说唱发出后,发出后,引发网友的高度关注和讨论度。但是吴亦凡在音乐上始终坚持自己的态度、有明确的追求目标,善于创新、勇于尝试,将一切可能实现的做到极致。  歌曲《大碗宽面》的整个创作包含浓烈中国元素,单曲封面紧扣歌曲名,卡通形象的吴亦凡化身厨师,坐在画有龙造型的青花瓷大碗边缘,碗后面一把中国传统折扇上赫然写着《大碗宽面》。封面中国风浓郁,旋律、歌词也将东西方音乐完美融合,用说唱的方式传递出唱作人潇洒江湖行的无畏。这次他将《天地》中“江湖人说我不行,古人说路遥知马力”的无畏做了更有深度的延续。在歌曲《大碗宽面》里,吴亦凡更直接地抒发心声 ——“你拥有你的天地,没人能够把你定义”、“ 一声笑傲江湖,只身闯江湖,何必分出胜负”。字里行间透露出经历风雨的历练,内心中那份信念更加坚定。朴素直白的歌词韵意深厚、饱含鼓舞,这是吴亦凡出道7年来愈战愈勇的心路写照。奋斗路上荆棘满布,每个人都会经历挫折,勇敢闯过去,自有你我天地。  去年环球音乐集团宣布与Kris Wu吴亦凡签订全球专属音乐合约后,已于2018年11月6日重磅推出吴亦凡个人首张专辑《Antares》,专辑获得不俗口碑,吴亦凡的音乐才华也备受瞩目。“时间会证明一切,我只用作品发声”。面对质疑,吴亦凡不骄不躁,选择用音乐发声。4月19日,吴亦凡全新单曲《大碗宽面》惊喜上线,一起感受“凡式”音乐来袭。本周六(4/20)“天·地·东·西·ALIVE TOUR吴亦凡2019巡回演唱会”首站将在南京拉开帷幕,敬请期待。

情歌天后梁靜茹 Fish Leong 首波單曲〈微光〉MV

在眾多歌迷千呼萬喚下,情歌天后梁靜茹睽違七年即將在5月發行全新專輯【我好嗎?-太陽如常升起】,首波主打新歌「微光」開創出「梁氏情歌」中少見帶有電子元素的新曲風,歌詞中用螢火蟲隱喻愛情的脆弱和稍縱即逝,以幽微的聲音詮釋出「微光」意涵希望及珍惜當下的梁靜茹,透露出著她音樂裡永恆的命題,也為這次新專輯所闡述自我探尋後找到最初信念及希望,成為專輯中畫龍點睛的一首歌! 在梁靜茹20年的歌唱生涯中,始終代表著她愛唱歌、堅持唱歌的「微光」,正是從小影響她最深的爸爸;原來從小受爸爸在餐廳駐唱影響而喜歡唱歌梁靜茹,因為有天分加上比賽常拿冠軍,有著歌手夢卻難圓的爸爸把目標投射在女兒身上,因此帶著梁靜茹去錄製B版卡拉ok的伴唱帶,除了能賺錢也兼練歌及練唱;梁靜茹說:「我記得當年才13歲,爸爸會騎摩托車載我到吉隆坡錄製伴唱帶,一首大概能賺10塊到30 塊馬幣不等。」由於每次要錄製歌手的伴唱帶並不固定,由時從陳淑樺、齊豫、周慧敏到王菲的歌都要能唱得精準到位而且得把神韻唱得像,幾年下來讓梁靜茹練就一身模仿歌唱的好功夫,能夠同時模仿十多位不同世代當紅女歌手唱腔、翻唱過近兩百首歌的她,非常習慣對麥克風唱歌,奠定梁靜茹日後對詞曲理解度高、節奏精準、歌路寬廣,唱什麼都有韻味的基本功,也讓她隨時上台、隨時能唱。對於梁靜茹來說,她最愛、影響她最深的爸爸就有如她的「微光」,始終在她心中不滅,讓她看見希望。 這次遠赴加拿大拍攝「微光」MV的梁靜茹,特別請來影像風格詩意深邃的導演余靜萍操刀,為了捕捉到有著湖光山色美景秘境中的曙光及霞光,梁靜茹不惜跋山涉水、走獨木橋、甚至跨越沼澤走到雙腳都是泥巴,並且得忍受負十度低溫拍照,中間更歷經一場雪山驚魂記險受困深山中,只為了追尋那道「微光」!原來在當地導遊的介紹下找到一處鮮少有觀光客踏足、依山傍水的絕妙湖景,一行人準備充足後浩浩蕩蕩開著四輪傳動車前往距離溫哥華市區兩個多小時車程的雪山秘境取景,沒想到順利拍完後在下山時遇到積雪太深,車子輪胎卡在雪地中無法動彈!在等待救援狀況下梁靜茹還下車與工作人員一起推車,眼看整整四個小時過去終於在人力及救援車協力下,終於順利脫困!不過經歷一場雪地驚魂記的梁靜茹不但沒有害怕,反而有小女孩經歷冒險後的興奮感,還說是歷年來發片拍攝最難忘好玩的一次,她笑說:「其實是因為出了這麼多張專輯,都沒有到亞洲以外的國家拍攝過,這次來加拿大與團隊一起來探險,又多了一件值得回憶的事情!」 睽違七年發行新專輯的梁靜茹遠赴加拿大這個充滿回憶的地方拍攝MV,讓余靜萍不但拍下光影及美景交織下梁靜茹的美,也捕捉到她真情流露的時刻,唱著微光、想著過去出道20年來人生種種往事,不禁潸然淚下的梁靜茹說:「因為其實我在情感上是個蠻敏感的人,在拍攝時想起過去一些人生無常,像是離別、錯過、愛情等等。」自爆自己其實私底下是個”愛哭鬼”的梁靜茹透露在錄音室時常常自己唱著唱著就哭了,她笑說:「我真的超愛哭!你可以問製作人,我在錄音室裡面唱,有時候他們在旁邊講話,我常哭到唱不下去!」 值得一提的是,這次赴有「雨城」稱號、一年有三分之一時間在下雨的溫哥華拍攝,老師卻給靜茹及拍攝團隊整整七日的大晴天,在天公作美的狀況下,讓攝影師捕捉到許多「奇蹟之光」,也完成數千張的奇蹟美照,恰好對應了這首「微光」的概念!由於二十年前曾經到加拿大錄製第一張專輯,梁靜茹說,「到現在都還能聞到當時清晨出來散步時,落葉與土地的氣息,還浮現在窗邊思考畫畫的畫面。」 梁靜茹新專輯【我好嗎?-太陽如常升起】首支單曲 《微光》將於4/16當天中午1200在台灣、大陸及新馬、香港四地共百家電台同步首播;此外,數位平台及MV也在當天15:00同步上線, 藉由梁靜茹以幽微又具穿透力的歌聲,準時照亮全亞洲歌迷的心!
