Released less than six months after Grande’s fourth studio album, Grammy-winning “Sweetener,” the record was a pleasant surprise for her fans. While “Sweetener” was announced through an extensive multi-media marketing campaign, including a mixed reality experience and various social media stunts, Ariana Grande only teased the lead single of “Thank U, Next” via Twitter one day before its release. With a video that broke YouTube and Vevo streaming records, the tune set the tone for an album reflecting on Grande’s past relationships and her personal struggles of the last few months. </span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span>The pop singer had made headlines in late 2018 for her split from fiancé Pete Davidson, following the tragic death of ex-boyfriend and fellow artist <a href="http://music.stingray.com/en/channels/VIB_ART093?utm_source=stingray-blog-website&amp;utm_medium=referral" target="_blank">Mac Miller</a>. A personal crisis that could have been reason for other artists to take a break seems to have inspired Grande: she reportedly recorded her latest album within just two weeks. The singer used the momentum of bad press and extreme publicity to her advantage - and it paid off. “Thank U, Next” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard 200 chart as the most-streamed pop album ever. Now, by claiming the top three of the Billboard Hot 100, Ariana Grande has broken yet another record, making her one of the biggest pop stars of today. </span></span></span></span></p> <p>⏯ Listen to Ariana Grande on <a href="http://music.stingray.com/en/channels/VIB_N1317?utm_source=stingray-blog-website&amp;utm_medium=referral" target="_blank">Stingray Music</a>!</p> <p><strong>Stay on the pulse of the most recent news in music.

Nous avons tenté de décrypter ce phénomène de la musique francophone qui n’a pas fini de faire parler de lui.</span></span></span></p> <h2><span><span><span><span><span><i>Darlène</i>, darling</span></span></span></span></span></h2> <p><span><span><span>Hubert c’est d’abord Hubert Chiasson, l’artiste de la banlieue de Québec qui a connu un premier succès remarqué avec son groupe The Seasons qu’il a monté en 2015 avec son frère. Mais c’est en solo qu’Hubert Lenoir est né. En février 2018 sortait son premier album <i>Darlène</i> accompagné du roman de Noémie Leclerc, gérante et amoureuse de l’artiste. L’œuvre autobiographique parle d’émancipation, d’amour et de recherche d’identité. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>L’album est un petit bijou musical aux couleurs pop et jazz. En ne partant de rien, Hubert Lenoir l’a écrit, composé et enregistré en quelques mois à peine, comme une évidence. Nommé dans la « courte liste » du Prix Polaris (qui récompense chaque année le meilleur album canadien), <i>Darlène</i> était déjà acclamé par la critique quelques mois à peine après sa sortie. On aime le titre phare « Fille de personne II », mais notre coup de cœur est la chanson « Recommencer » et sa mélodie enivrante. </span></span></span></p> <p><a class="button" href="https://webplayer.stingray.com/play/channel-featuring;artist=G%3A613893?utm_source=stingray-blog-website&amp;utm_medium=referral" target="_blank">Écouter</a> <a href="https://webplayer.stingray.com/play/channel-featuring;artist=G%3A613893?utm_source=stingray-blog-website&amp;utm_medium=referral" target="_blank">Hubert Lenoir</a></p> <h2><span><span><span><span><span>50 nuances d’Hubert Lenoir</span></span></span></span></span></h2> <p><span><span><span>Hubert Lenoir ne laisse personne indifférent. Certains le trouvent grossier, d’autres inspirant. Que ce soit par ses propos, son maquillage ou son absence de maquillage son, look androgyne, sa démarche nonchalante, ou encore ses costumes, à chaque apparition l’artiste se fait remarquer. Ainsi, la quête d’identité semble être un thème récurrent non seulement dans ses chansons, mais aussi dans ses représentations. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Pour autant, l’artiste ne se considère pas comme assumant le rôle d’un personnage et se veut « honnête de contradictions ». Il nous avait parlé de cette quête d’authenticité le temps d’une entrevue avec notre équipe Stingray PausePlay lors de son passage aux Francos de Montréal : </span></span></span></p> <div class="video-embed-field-responsive-video"><iframe width="854" height="480" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/W3q9opxDWPc?autoplay=0&amp;start=0&amp;rel=0"></iframe> </div> <p> </p> <p><span><span><span>Mi-ange mi-voyou, on ne sait pas trop qui est le plus intimidé : lui ou nous?</span></span></span></p> <h2><span><span><span><span><span>Portrait d’une génération</span></span></span></span></span></h2> <p><span><span><span>À tout juste 24 ans, Hubert Lenoir parle d’abord à une génération en quête de sens. L’artiste le dit lui-même : il n’a pas de conscience politique ou sociale profonde. Il semble un peu perdu, comme ses pairs, ce qui l’amène à briser certaines règles et parfois à provoquer le monde. Il peint le portrait d’une génération qui ne trouve pas ses repères, à qui il confie qu’il n’est pas nécessaire d’écouter ses parents pour devenir quelqu’un. </span></span></span></p> <p><span lang="FR-CA" xml:lang="FR-CA"><span><span>Hubert Lenoir c’est finalement tout un univers ! Pour lui, l’art est une revanche, un moyen d’exposer sa marginalité. Il séduit les foules, en ne revendiquant aucun idéal particulier, sinon celui de l’acceptation de soi.  Séduire, c’est s’exposer à la critique !</span></span></span></p> <p><strong>Restez à l'affût des dernières nouvelles musicales.

BreakOut West is an annual gathering to celebrate, develop and support the best of western Canadian music. Western Canadian artists are developing sustainable careers of national and international scope, and BreakOut West is an integral component of this development. Through the annual conference and festival, industry from around the world and western Canadian artists are given the opportunity to discover, educate, network and grow. The event consists of the BreakOut West Festival; showcasing the talent contained in the "left half" of Canada and delivering Western Canadian Music Awards to honoured nominees, and the Conference itself with educational panels, networking events, and so much more. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Stingray Music was there to participate as a perennial sponsor of the Western Canadian Industry Awards Brunch which took place on Saturday, October 13 at the Delta Grand Okanagan Resort in Kelowna, BC. This year we were honoured to present the prestigious Recording of the Year Award as part of our Stingray Rising Stars program. Honourees included Terry Jacks who received the 2018 Heritage Award, and Allan Reid who was presented with the 2018 Kevin Walters Industry Builder Award. The Canadian Songwriter’s Hall Of Fame Induction also took place, honouring Spirit of the West’s iconic song, “Home for a Rest” (written by John Mann and Geoffrey Kelly), and Kelowna-born rock band, The Grapes Of Wrath, were inducted into the Western Canadian Music Hall Of Fame.</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>This year’s Recording of the Year Award nominees were:</span></span></span></p> <ul><li><span><span><span>Attica Riots – MB</span></span></span></li> <li><span><span><span>Bend Sinister – BC</span></span></span></li> <li><span><span><span>Dear Rouge – BC</span></span></span></li> <li><span><span><span>Kacy &amp; Clayton – SK</span></span></span></li> <li><span><span><span>Leeroy Stagger – AB</span></span></span></li> </ul><p><span><span><span>It was <a href="http://atticariots.com/" target="_blank">Attica Riots</a> who was selected as winner of the category and awarded with Stingray Music’s Stingray Rising Stars bursary of a value of 2,000$. </span></span></span></p> <h3><span><span><span><strong>About the winners:</strong></span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>The members of Canada's Attica Riots (Bobby Desjarlais, Anders Erickson &amp; Kyle Erickson) have what can only be described as a cosmic musical connection. This trio are known to create fiery and infectious alt rock anthems and deliver sharp lyricism and rock-solid musicianship. 2018 is looking to be the year that Attica Riots – who are signed to Five Seven, which is part of Eleven Seven Label Group – make an indelible mark outside of Canada with their worldwide debut release, produced by Mark Needham (American Authors, Imagine Dragons, The Killers).</span></span></span></p> <p><strong>Stay on the pulse of the most recent news in music.

Make sure to check them out on tour this fall in the US, Canada, and France.</strong></h3> <p> </p> <p><strong>1. What was the first and last album (or song) you streamed?</strong></p> <p><strong>Yohan</strong>: Believe it or not, the first album I streamed was <em>ANTI</em> by Rihanna (I was always more a CD kinda guy!) I loved everything about that album: the production, the attitude, the songwriting, the awesome cover of Tame Impala‘s <em>Currents</em> closer “New Person, Same Old Mistakes,” retitled “Same Ol’ Mistakes”.</p> <p>The last one I streamed must’ve been Travis Scott’s latest release <em>Astroworld</em> which welcomes interesting guests and producers like Frank Ocean, James Blake, Tame Impala... It has many different moods, and that album cover by David LaChapelle is just so cool.</p> <p><strong>Nina</strong>: The last album I streamed was <em>Regeneration</em> (2001) by The Divine Comedy. It’s obviously not Radiohead’s producer Nigel Godrich’s latest one, but it’s amazing. I’m also in love with the singer’s voice. It’s sweet and peaceful. The song arrangements are beautiful too as they’re similar to classical music, which I played for a long time.</p> <p><strong>2. Name a song you wish you wrote? </strong></p> <p><strong>Nina</strong>: “No surprises” by Radiohead. It reminds me of my childhood when my father was very sick. I’d listen to it in bed, with headphones, and would instantly feel reassured. It’s almost like a lullaby, it has a soothing and universal touch to it.</p> <p><strong>Yohan</strong>: “Cecilia” by Simon &amp; Garfunkel. I’d ask my parents to put it on repeat when I was a kid. The rhythm and melody bring be back to happy place.</p> <p><strong>3. What was the first song you learned to play? </strong></p> <p><strong>Nina</strong>: When I was 9, my mother bought me a piano and hired a classical music teacher. The first song I learned was from <em>La Méthode Rose</em> by Ernest Van de Velde, a music theory book for piano beginners.</p> <p><strong>Yohan</strong>: At 10, I started a drum/guitar band with a friend. The first song we ever performed was “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” by U2. We also learned music by covering almost all of Nirvana’s songs, which we would then perform at local bars and small festivals, along with our first compositions. The venues were packed with teenagers from our school, those were great times.</p> <p><strong>4. If you could open for 3 different artists, who would they be? </strong></p> <p>We are huge fans of Arcade Fire. We saw their last tour at a festival in Europe and later their own show through a live stream. They are so talented and charismatic. Their set design and production is incredible, especially with the ring in the middle of the crowd.</p> <p>The National is one of our favorite bands too because of their melodic and dramatic vibes. The feelings they communicate through their songs and live shows are pure and authentic. They hit you straight to the heart. It would be an honour to share the stage with them.</p> <p>Tame Impala, of course, is on our bucket list of bands we’d love to open for!</p> <p>But also: Rhye, Angel Olsen, Emily Haines / Metric, Tori Amos, Half Moon Run, Bon Iver, Phoenix, Daughter, Bomba Estéreo, John Legend, Siddhartha (artist from Mexico)…</p> <p><strong>5. Which song(s) do you cover in concert?</strong></p> <p>“Love You Like A Love Song” by Selena Gomez.</p> <p>We’ve adapted it to our style, the delivery is quite emotional when we play it on stage. We love covering songs from artists that are different from what we do, so we can adapt it the “Cats On Trees ” way.</p> <p><strong>6. Which artist(s) would you love to collaborate with?</strong></p> <p>It would be a dream to create with Sufjan Stevens.</p> <p>We also love French Canadian rapper Loud. It could be interesting to do a song in French with him!</p> <p>Lorde, Pharrell Williams who’s an amazing songwriter, and the producers of The Weeknd which are mind-blowing.</p> <p>In a wider perspective, we’d love to collaborate with film producers and visual storytellers that we could compose soundtracks for, whether movies, TV documentaries, video games, etc. We find it fascinating to create a musical mood that conveys perfectly the emotions of a specific visual.</p> <p><img alt="Cats on Trees - NEON" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="1f75a723-27cf-49df-a091-6f69cdb26a2d" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/catsontrees.jpg" /></p> <p><strong>7. What were your inspirations for your 2nd album <em>NEON</em>?</strong></p> <p>Our first album released in 2013 sold over 220 000 copies and brought us on a 200-concert tour. That overnight success changed our entire lives and got us to meet amazing new people and travel to places we would’ve never been to, like Bolivia in South America where we shot “Sirens Call”. It wasn’t that long ago but all those experiences still inspire us. <em>NEON</em> encompasses those moments of travelling, being exposed to new cultures and languages, new styles of music, and it also reflects how we’ve both changed personally and artistically. Those shared experiences also help us create in an emotional and deep way. We are like a family because we know one another’s past and present. The friendship and loyalty we have towards each other is the basis of everything we do.</p> <p><strong>8. What are your wishes and goals for Cats On Trees? What’s next?</strong></p> <p>From a creative perspective, we want to write and collaborate with artists from different countries and cultures, whether for featurings, co-writing, remixes, etc. The key words to our creative process are curiosity and open-mindedness. We also wish to write more for other artists as we have tons of material and lots of different ideas.</p> <p>We are currently on tour to promote<em> NEON</em>. From a live performance perspective, we love the idea of reinventing our shows, so we’ve added a massive organic design that changes shape in response to our hand movement, and added 3 magical musicians that helped us rearrange our songs for the stage.</p> <p>Globally, we hope to continue touring a lot to discover new countries, people and art forms,that will feed our imagination to write more music. As of September 13th 2018, some of our wishes are becoming reality as we’ll embark on a short tour in Montréal, Lavaltrie (with Salomé Leclerc), Québec (with JORDANN), Toronto and NYC.</p> <h3><strong>Listen to Cats on Trees on:</strong></h3> <p><span class="size-h3"><span class="size-normal"><a class="button" href="https://music.stingray.com/en/channels/VIB_N1116?utm_source=stingray-blog-website&amp;amp;utm_medium=referral" target="_blank">Tôt ou Tard vibe: over 15 years of Independence</a> </span></span></p> <p><strong>Stay on the pulse of the most recent news in music.
