Prince Estate Announces ‘Piano & A Microphone 1983’ LP, Shares First Unheard Track [Listen]

first_imgToday would have been Prince‘s 60th birthday. In celebration of the Purple One’s life and endless contributions to music, the Prince estate announced a new album of previously unreleased home recordings, dubbed Piano & A Microphone 1983–due out September 21, 2018. The nine-track LP includes cassette recordings that Prince made at his piano at his Kiowa Trail in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The extremely intimate version of Prince is previewed in today’s first track release, a cover of the 19th century spiritual, “Mary Don’t You Weep”, which will also appear during the end credits of Spike Lee‘s upcoming movie, BlacKkKlansman.Much of Piano and a Microphone 1983 will feature Prince in his most intimate form, working through future classics like “Purple Rain”, “17 Days”, “Strange Relationship” and “International Love”, as well as a cover of Joni Mitchell‘s “A Case of You.”During the final year of his life, in 2016, Prince embarked on a “Piano & A Microphone” tour, in which the Purple One performed as a one-man show. The tour was of complete legendary status, supporting Prince in his most rare form. It was during this tour that his health complications started to become public, and that fans started to worry that the mystical musician was in danger. He died on April 21, 2016 from an accidental overdose of fentanyl at the age of 57.“This raw, intimate recording, which took place at the start of Prince’s career right before he achieved international stardom, is similar in format to the Piano & A Microphone Tour that he ended his career with in 2016,” Prince Estate entertainment adviser Troy Carter said in a statement. “The Estate is excited to be able to give fans a glimpse of his evolution and show how his career ultimately came full circle with just him and his piano.”According to Billboard, the album cover features a rare image of Prince backstage during the 1999 tour, taken by Allen Beaulieu, who worked closely with Prince from 1979-1984.The Deluxe version of Piano and a Microphone 1983 is set to include a 12″ booklet with new liner notes from Prince’s engineer, Don Batts, as well as never-before-seen candid photos of the Purple One. Fans who pre-order the digital download will get an instant download of “Mary Don’t You Weep,” which you can listen to below:<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Piano & A Microphone 1983 Tracklisting:“17 Days”“Purple Rain”“A Case Of You”“Mary Don’t You Weep”“Strange Relationship”“International Lover”“Wednesday”“Cold Coffee & Cocaine”“Why The Butterflies”last_img read more

Pipelines Say They See Benefits in Expanding Existing Assets

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Some of North America’s biggest new pipeline projects are already in the ground.As environmentalists and local activists make it extraordinarily difficult to build new oil and gas lines, energy companies are working around the opposition by supersizing old pipes that already crisscross parts of the continent.Executives at some of the biggest pipeline operators in the U.S. and Canada, including Enbridge Inc. and Kinder Morgan Inc say they pivoted to the strategy as plans for new pipelines came under attack. For decades, new pipeline projects rarely drew attention, much less ire. “We used to just show up with a map,” said Al Monaco, president and chief executive of Enbridge. “Now we engage with the local communities and indigenous groups early and often.”In recent years, groups with a goal of keeping fossil fuels in the ground have joined forces with Native American activists, landowners and other local opponents to stall numerous projects. Most notable among these was TransCanada Corp.’s much-debated Keystone XL pipeline for transporting Canadian crude southward.Skipping new lines—and the environmental reviews and taking of land by eminent domain that they often require—and instead working under existing permits and rights of way is just common sense, pipeline executives say. Mr. Monaco said the expansions also minimize impacts to land and the environment in addition to being cheaper. “Once the pipe is in the ground, you can do a lot of things: reverse flows, expand it, optimize it,” he added.More ($): Pipelines See Benefits In Expanding Existing Assets Pipelines Say They See Benefits in Expanding Existing Assetslast_img read more

Liverpool must improve and quickly, says Jordan Henderson

first_imgLiverpool must improve quickly or risk getting badly beaten by their Premier League rivals, skipper Jordan Henderson has said after the team’s 4-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.Tottenham brutally exposed Liverpool’s defensive frailties as in-form striker Harry Kane scored a brace while Son Heung-min and Dele Alli were also on target at Wembley.Mohamed Salah pulled a goal back in between but it was not enough to inspire a comeback as Liverpool dropped to ninth in the table on 13 points and have conceded 16 goals so far — their most after nine games since 1964.”I’m sure a lot of criticism will come our way and deservedly so… we’ve got to change it quickly, otherwise you lose games and you lose them badly like we did today,” Henderson told the BBC.”So we need a reaction quickly, we need to bounce back on the training field and in games, but like I say, I believe we can.”We know there are things to improve and things to change quickly. I’ve got every faith that we can because we’ve got a fantastic team. But we need to work on a few things and change it quickly.”Henderson sprung to the defence of Dejan Lovren after the hapless Croatian centre-back was hauled off the pitch on the 31st minute by manager Juergen Klopp.”I think we didn’t start well at all, so it’s about being ready for the game – everybody, I know Dejan (Lovren) got took off early in the game but it could’ve been anyone of us that came off because it wasn’t good enough,” he said.advertisementLiverpool will look to bounce back from their loss when they host Huddersfield Town at Anfield on Saturday. Tottenham, who moved level with second-placed Manchester United on 20 points, travel to Old Trafford.last_img read more

first_imgColin Cowherd criticizes Coach K.colin cowherd criticizes coach kOregon knocked Duke out of the NCAA Tournament Thursday night, and if you missed it, the end of the contest was a little dicey. Ducks star Dillon Brooks, on his team’s final possession, launched and hit a three-pointer that was inconsequential to the score – and then celebrated the shot. Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski reportedly told Brooks in the handshake line that he is “too good” of a player to be showing off.As you’d imagine, the hot takes regarding the incident are coming from all angles. Friday morning, FOX Sports radio host Colin Cowherd got involved, criticizing Coach K for the move. The gist? Cowherd doesn’t like how college basketball coaches try to control everything – including the players. He doesn’t think it was Krzyzewski’s place to talk to [email protected] on Coach K: You’re getting trounced. You don’t get an opinion on what another player is doing.https://t.co/mJPrsT08OK— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) March 25, 2016What do you think?

Groups demand end to infosharing on asylumseeking children

first_imgA coalition of civil-liberties and immigrant-rights groups is demanding that the federal agency tasked with reuniting asylum-seeking children with relatives immediately stop sharing information with immigration authorities.The groups say the information the agency gets from the children is being used to deport relatives and other potential sponsors.The groups made a complaint in a letter Wednesday to the Health and Human Services and Homeland Security chiefs. The complaint is about the little-heralded role the refugee resettlement office assumed this year in an agreement between the departments.Under the info-sharing pact, fingerprints and biographical data from would-be sponsors are fed into a Homeland Security database revamped to aid immigration verification.Immigration officials say the pact is justified because it facilitated the arrest of 41 people for deportation over the summer.Frank Bajak, The Associated Presslast_img read more
