According to Eminem’s official website, fans can join a live chat and listen to the album while the Detroit rapper answers questions from those online.
Released on May 23, 2000 via Aftermath and Interscope Records, ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’ was produced by Dr. Dre, F.B.T., Mel-Man, The 45 King, and Eminem himself.
It sold 1.78 million copies in its first week in the US, making it the fastest-selling album of all-time in the US before it was dethroned in 2015 by Adele’s ’25’. Landing at Number One on Billboard and stying there for eight weeks, it has since sold over 35 million copies worldwide.
Speaking during his recent three-hour Shade45 radio show special, titled Music To Be Quarantined By, the rapper explained his love of the late rapper as he prepared to play ‘If I Die Tonight’ from 2Pac’s 1995 album ‘Me Against The World.’
He said: “OK, this next song is from an artist who I feel like might be the greatest songwriter of all-time.
El-P shares soundtrack for Tom Hardy movie ‘Capone’
The soundtrack is the producer’s first full-length movie score since the 2004 film Bomb The System.
The Capone soundtrack features 13 songs, spans the course of an hour, and was released via Milan Records today (May 29). In a press release, El-P said: “I grew up on film scores and they’ve always been a huge influence on me and I’ve been hoping to get the time and chance to do another, so I was thrilled to do Capone.
“Huge thanks to Josh Trank and Tom Hardy for bringing me in and of course to Wilder Zoby who was my right-hand man through the whole score. I loved helping create and getting lost in this twisted little trip into Al’s mind. Much of the music on this score is directly from the movie and some of it is stuff that was created for the film but didn’t survive the final cut. I’m excited to present it to the world in this form.”
Capone marks the second time El-P has worked with director Josh Trank, following his work on the end credits score for Fantastic 4.
The film, which was released earlier this month, sees Hardy playing the notorious gangster in the last year of his life as he struggles with dementia. In a two-star review, NME said: “[I]t’s commendable that Trank has tried to tell a less familiar story here, when it would be easier to explore the blood and gore of Capone’s earlier life […] But his quasi-biopic is a messy, half-baked epilogue which veers from the peculiar to the downright laughable.”
Fiona Apple pens music for ‘Bob’s Burgers’ creators’ new animated series ‘Central Park’
Fiona Apple has written new music for the Apple TV+ musical comedy series Central Park.
The singer-songwriter penned tracks for the newly released show, the first two episodes of which were released today (May 29), alongside the likes of Cyndi Lauper, Meghan Trainor, Sara Bareilles, Aimee Mann and Anthony Hamilton.
Each episode features three to six original songs, which will hit streaming services every week.
Apple co-wrote the song ‘New York Doesn’t Like Your Face’, which will appear in episode 10. You can listen to music from the first two episodes below.
Central Park was created by Loren Bouchard (Bob’s Burgers), Josh Gad, and Nora Smith and stars Leslie Odom Jr., Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, Kathryn Hahn, Tituss Burgess, Daveed Diggs, and Stanley Tucci in voice roles. The animated series was announced earlier this year.
The official synopsis for Central Park reads: “Central Park is an animated musical comedy about the Tillermans, a family that lives in, and are the caretakers of, Central Park.
“Owen, the park manager, and Paige, his journalist wife, raise their kids Molly and Cole in the world’s most famous park, while fending off a hotel heiress Bitsy Brandenham and her long-suffering assistant Helen, who would love nothing more than to turn the park into condos.”
Watch a trailer for the show below.
When it was posed to him that music seems to be getting a lot of people through the lockdown, he replied: “Yeah no, that’s true. I mean, thank God for the new Fiona Apple record! It’s beautiful, and it’s been a long time coming.”
Released last month, ‘Fetch The Bolt Cutters’ was Apple’s first album in eight years. In a four-star review, NME’s Charlotte Krol said of the project: “[It] will cut straight to the gut for Apple fans old and new and leave behind indelible messages about her life and illustrious career, now spanning two decades. It’s an intoxicating listen – and one of her best.”
Instagram announces plans to share IGTV ad revenue with artists
Instagram has announced new plans to share advertising revenue from videos with artists.
The platform is opening up a new way for creators to make money through IGTV in a bid to support its community during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Creators have always been at the core of our community,” the company wrote in a blog post. “Since the earliest days of Instagram, they have inspired people around the world with their talents, shared their lives and built their personal brands from the ground up.
“We have always been committed to supporting creators as they turn their passion into livelihoods – because every creator is unique, that means providing a mix of monetisation tools to help creators of all sizes, from the emerging to the more established. Given the uncertain circumstances many are facing today, that commitment is more important than ever.”
The post announced that ads would be introduced on IGTV from “next week”, although a date was not specified. Revenue from the ads will be shared with creators.
According to Instagram, “IGTV ads will initially appear when people click to watch IGTV videos from previews in their feed. The video ads will be built for mobile and up to 15 seconds long.” Experiences like being able to skip ads will be tested “throughout the year”.
The new feature will initially be tested with “a small group of creators and advertisers in the US” and will be slowly rolled out “over time as we improve the experience”.
Meanwhile, in other social media news, Twitter has flagged a tweet from Donald Trump for violating their rules about glorifying violence. The tweet in question is now labelled with a warning that users must click on to be able to see his message.
