Mo Brandis releases his debut EP ‘Undercover’. The latest get-on-the-dance-floor single Red Lights is definitely a stand out of the 4 song EP.
Having worked with some of the writers and producers behind Adele, James Morrison and Joss Stone, the London based singer-songwriter draws influences from the likes of Justin Timberlake and MNEK.
Mo says: “I wrote ‘Red Lights’ as a feel-good tune and morning boost for anyone who needs it. I know I do on most days! It’s about breaking out of your mind, pursuing your dreams and not letting anything or anyone stop you. I’m always really inspired by stories of people going against all odds – because they had their own vision and just kept going.”
In a time where music labels are fighting against piracy and streaming services, it hasn’t stopped Sony making a deal of the century. It’s between Sony and you-know-who. That’s right, Adele will sign a $130 million contract with Sony.
This tops Whitney Houston’s $100 million contract with Arista Records in 2001. In fact, Adele will also be signing the biggest record deal by any female singer.
This now gives Sony the exclusive rights to release her music. This is certainly great for Adele. She has an amazing voice and presence and has earned her keep. She is deservingly the wealthiest female musician in Britain.
Adele has helped songwriters & producers make millions. Adele co-wrote each song on the album. Songwriters & producers have made almost $10 million in royalties so far. Adele’s ’25’ had a total of 13 producers. With that said, Adele is on top of a songwriters pitch list. Why? Millions are to be made.
Every time the clock ticks it seems Adele sells another million records. She did it again. Adele is set to sell another million albums in a week. All in all, Adele’s ’25’ could sell near 7 million copies by years end.
In a recent interview with Time Magazine, Adele says she quit social media in order to spend time writing a great album.
“How am I supposed to write a real record if I’m waiting for half a million likes on a #$%^! photo? That ain’t real”
Nearing 7 million albums sold in a quick short weeks, Adele is astonished with her recent success in America:
“I’m not even from America.” Maybe they think I’m related to the Queen. Americans are obsessed with the royal family.”
Other artists may heed Adele’s advice. Instead of spending hours tweeting, consider spending hours creating a real album.
