Music - Power of Positive Music Movement

  In Anchorage, Alaska, in the bleakest midwinter, the Sun rises just after 10am, hovers close to the horizon for a few hours, and dips back down again shortly before 4pm—all in all, just five hours and 28 minutes of daylight. Around that winter solstice (just in time for Christmas), Spotify listeners in the most northerly latitudes […]

Abba fans will have to wait a little longer for the group’s first new music in 35 years, with the release now scheduled for the second half of 2019. In April last year, it was announced that the superstar pop quartet had reconvened in the studio for the first time since their split in 1983, […]

  Selena Gomez has returned with new music for the first time in several months with a song called Anxiety. Gomez, who recently returned to social media after a four-month break, lent her vocals to the track by Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter Julia Michaels. It marks the first music from the US pop star and actress, […]

If you’re the kind of New Yorker prone to wondering what it would have been like to go to a CBGB that wasn’t located inside the Newark airport, you might also wonder if you arrived in the city too late. Fair enough. But the old bohemian, culturally rich downtown Manhattan spirit still has a few […]

Singer/songwriter Sade performs at the MGM Grand Garden Arena September 3, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Photo: Ethan Miller (Getty Images) She’s gorgeous, talented, stylish and ever-elusive. And today, the woman we know simply as “Sade” turns 60. If that sounds unbelievable, consider this: After forming her eponymous band in the early ’80s, the Nigerian-born […]

I had been on hold with the IRS for 30 minutes when I noticed that the music wasn’t driving me crazy. Background music can be a particularly noxious branch of the art of sound. The tinny elevator Muzak. The synthesized Christmas carols that fill drugstores for weeks. The buzzy sound in the background at the […]

Tokyo is a difficult place to begin a career in music. The city is massive, with hundreds of obscure and independent venues. There isn’t a town or district that burgeoning musicians call home, nor a bar that is known for its role in launching artists’ careers (though What the Dickens has certainly hosted great up-and-comers). […]

GarageBand celebrates 15 years across Apple ecosystem! GarageBand, Apple’s digital audio workstation that helps users easily create music on iOS and macOS devices, is turning 15 tomorrow. First introduced at Macworld 2004 by the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs and American musician John Mayer, the app, according to Apple, has grown to become the most […]

Happy new year! The Metropolitan Opera rang in 2019 with a boffo “Adriana Lecouvreur,” featuring a love triangle of Anna Netrebko, Anita Rachvelishvili and Piotr Beczala with enough sizzle to lead some critics to warm to the not-always-respected work. More on that in a second. I was more than 4,000 miles away, celebrating in Vienna […]

Music is a regular fixture in my daily life. I listen to music to keep me motivated while I exercise, to relax and distract me when I travel, and for a quick creativity boost when I’m writing. My family—especially my kids—have music playing around the house all the time. I also use relaxing music to unwind before […]
