Mike Posner Pays Tribute to Avicii, Tracy Chapman in ‘Move On’ Video

0

Mike Posner catalogs two years of tragic events but resolves to fight through his grief in new single “Move On.” The instrumentation is sunny: firm strums on guitar, a disco bass line, a resolute four-on-the-floor beat. But the “Move On” video contains footage of Posner’s father, who died after battling brain cancer, and the producer Avicii, Posner’s friend and collaborator, who committed suicide in 2018. The singer-songwriter also informs viewers that he broke up with his girlfriend and that he still cries sometimes when he’s by himself. Despite these obstacles, Posner remains committed to regaining equilibrium eventually. “I wish Tracy Chapman was my friend/ She would know exactly what to say,” he sings. “Beginnings always hide themselves in ends/ At some point I will be okay.” “Move On” will appear on Posner’s upcoming third album, A Real Good Kid, out January 18th. The singer-songwriter plans to implement an unusual promotional strategy: In March, he will start walking across America, beginning a nine-month journey that will start at the Atlantic Ocean and end at the Pacific.

‘David Bowie Is’ App Exclusive: Hear Gary Oldman Break Down Diamond Dogs Tour

Gary Oldman narrates a visual history of David Bowie’s 1974 Diamond Dogs Tour in this exclusive clip from the upcoming David Bowie Is mobile app that turns the acclaimed museum exhibitinto an augmented reality experience. The 1974 trek featured an amalgamation of “contemporary music and theatre several years ahead of its time” as Bowie worked with “a stellar lineup of theatrical collaborators quite unlike that of any previous rock tour,” Oldman says in the David Bowie Is app. The app allows users to comb through hand-drawn stage sketches and wardrobe ideas for the Diamond Dogs Tour.

The David Bowie Is app arrives on January 8th, which marks what would have been Bowie’s 72nd birthday. The creators of the app revealed on Thursday that Oldman would provide the narration for the museum exhibit’s adaptation into the digital realm.

Bowie and Oldman were both born and raised in South London and first met in the late 1980s and became close friends; they appeared together in Julian Schnabel’s 1996 film Basquiat, and Oldman starred as a priest in Bowie’s controversial 2013 video for “The Next Day- “This brings the amazing David Bowie Is exhibition to a wider audience. It’s great that his fans get to experience it,” Oldman said in a statement. Additionally, the app features 3D renderings of Bowie artifacts that appeared when David Bowie Is resided in museums in London and Brooklyn.
