Liam Payne remixes Cheryl song I Don’t Care

Brit Awards 2013 - Inside Arrivals

It looks like One Direction’s Liam Payne has found a new hobby when he isn’t busy traveling the world with his One Direction band mates. Liam has remixed the Cheryl tune “I Don’t Care” and its actually quite good, even if you don’t like electronic dance music (or EDM.) One Direction fans are familiar with Liam’s remixes as he has remixed the One Direction tracks “You and I” and their latest single “Steal My Girl”, off of their upcoming album Four. If you are interested in hearing Liam’s version of “I Don’t Care” you can take a listen here.

Emery commented, “People always beg us to ‘do an acoustic tour’ or ‘bring Emery acoustic to a living room show’ and so we figured that maybe we could do that while we are already in town for a rock show, and then we could meet the special fans that are responsible for us having such a long and awesome career.

“We are gonna play a special acoustic full band set right there on the floor with you. It will be all different songs than we will be playing later that night, and yes, for the first time ever, we will play the song ‘Ann Marie.’ This will include a meet and greet and all that stuff. Make sure to bring us anything you want autographed. We can’t wait to meet you or see you all again soon.”

Emery is gearing up for the release of You Were Never Alone next year on BC Music. The upcoming record sees the return of founding member/vocalist, Devin Shelton.

BC Music labelmates, The Classic Crime, will release a new anniversary album What Was Done, Vol. 1: A Decade Revisited on October 27. Featuring a mix of both
acoustic and rearranged versions of fan and band favorites, WWDV1 can be pre-ordered now through the BadChristian web-store at: http://bit.ly/wwdv1BC.

Angels and Airwaves release album artwork for new album

TbmW8gq

Angels and Airwaves have released the album artwork for their upcoming album The Dream Walker. Here is a short note from the band about the cover’s design.

“Our cover art was created by visual development designer Gustavo H. Mendonca who has helped create some of the most iconic images and characters for Lucas Films, Marvel, DC Comics and your favorite video games. He is helping us bring the characters and world of Poet Anderson : The Dream Walker to life. Our cover is based on a key character that will unfold in the Poet storyline. Here’s an explanation from one of Poets contributing writers: “Dream Walkers are the elusive warriors of our dreams, protecting us from our nightmares. The orb-like halo is the physical embodiment of a Dream Walker’s soul. It hovers around their body, creating a protective shield, turning the deepest vulnerability into the greatest strength.”
