Another Sky have today unveiled their stunning new single Apple Tree, showcasing vocalist Catrin Vincent’s astonishing range and the band’s strength for cool atmospherics and poignant lyrics. The track is accompanied by a beautiful stop-motion video directed by Dann Parry.
When asked about the video, Catrin said:
“Apple Tree is the story of a boy I knew growing up who was bullied for talking to daffodils. I always admired him.
The song celebrates feminine men, because I don’t believe being feminine is exclusive to being a woman.
We spent some time last year on the Isle of Wight at Chale Abbey Studios. The song was written and recorded there.”
Master P is challenging YG to a bit of a wager … because he’s so confident his New Orleans Saints will beat YG’s Los Angeles Rams this weekend, he wants to put $40K on it.
TMZ Sports got Mr. Miller out in L.A. on Monday … and he was still on a high from the Saints beating the Eagles and punching their ticket back to the NFC title game for the first time in nearly a decade.
Of course, YG is a massive L.A. Rams fan — and when P heard the rapper won $20K in an NFL playoff bet with Dallas Cowboys superfan Post Malone, the No Limit boss had to up the ante.
“Okay, DOUBLE THAT,” said … “We good.”
“YG, I know you beat Post Malone. But, that’s not happening in the dome.”
Master P says he’s cool with YG — and it’s all in good fun — and with the money both of these guys have made, it’s not a life-changing wager. It’s more about bragging rights.
“The Saints are my team so we’re going to the Super Bowl this year.”
There’s more … P says when the Saints win the title, he’s gonna put some of the players in I Got the Hook Up 3 as a reward!
His son, Romeo Miller, also has special plans to hook up Drew Brees with a special pair of his new MoneYatti kicks.
Remember, the Saints won the Super Bowl back in 2010 — defeating Peyton Manning’s Indianapolis Colts in one of the most exciting games in SB history.
If the Saints make it back — you can bet P will be at the game.
R. Kelly deserves what he’s getting — especially with artists pulling their collabs from streaming services — because he’s done a lot of “f**ked up s**t” … so says Post Malone.
TMZ caught up with Posty while leaving The Grove in L.A. Monday night, hand-in-hand with his lady friend, and he made it clear he’s not down with French Montana and DJ Paul … both of whom said R. Kelly’s musical legacy will live on despite Lifetime’s docuseries.
Post was tentative at first, but ultimately he speaks his piece … he believes the women accusing R. Kelly.
As we’ve reported, Lady Gaga, Celine Dion, The Pussycat Dolls, Chance the Rapper, and Ciara have either pulled their R. Kelly featured tracks, or are in the middle of doing so.
