Singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi has dropped the official video for the track Forget Me. The self-described chubby Scottish popstar shot the clip at Pikes Hotel in Ibiza with director Louis Bhose. The famous hotel was the setting for the 1983 WHAM! video “Club Tropicana.” With “Forget Me,” Lewis and Louis set out to duplicate the iconic clip, shot for shot. Watch the “Forget Me” here.

“‘Forget Me’ is a song that’s so dear to my heart and I definitely feel like it’s my best tune yet,” says Lewis Capaldi. “It’s about a break up I went through where after a year, the only real contact I had with my ex was seeing her ‘post-me’ life play out on her Instagram. I was at a point where I was feeling pretty miserable and she seemed like she was moving on and having the best time, thriving, and I hated it. It seemed unfair to me that she appeared happy while I was hurting, and I was fearful she might have forgotten about me completely, so I wrote a song about it.”

“You hear a sad song and you expect a sad video. There’s catharsis in that. But to go in the other direction completely felt more in line with the Lewis that walked onstage at Glastonbury in full Noel Gallagher getup,” says director Louis Bhose, who also shot the video for Capaldi’s “Grace”.

“The performance is classic Capaldi: ‘yeah, no bother, just singing this song with a cocktail in my hand. I’m fine, not thinking about my ex, here at Club Tropicana.’”

Of course Capaldi’s mother loves the track adding “It’s not the best song I’ve ever heard, but I do like it.”

Lewis Capaldi who took a hiatus for 3 years after blowing up with only two single releases is back with a new song called Forget Me. The new pop track sounds like a 2007 pop rock track sung by American Idol’s Chris Daughtry. The song was written with Michael Pollack who writes for Katy Perry, Backstreet Boys, and Kelly Clarkson. If you’re looking for depressing ballad, you won’t find it here. You’ll get common, a slick radio pop production.

Lewis says “a wee bit more upbeat than my previous numbers, mostly because after touring the world, I noticed that my lesser known slower tracks were making some of the crowds look like they were about to fall asleep out of sheer boredom. However, this new one is sad AND fast, much like my love making. Not to worry, I’ve still got plenty of depressing ballads up my sleeve.”

“‘Forget Me’ is a song that’s so dear to my heart, and I definitely feel like it’s my best tune yet,” Capaldi shared in a statement. “It’s about a break-up I went through where after a year, the only real contact I had with my ex was seeing her ‘post-me’ life play out on her Instagram.

“I was at a point where I was feeling pretty miserable, and she seemed like she was moving on and having the best time, thriving, and I hated it. It seemed unfair to me that she appeared happy while I was hurting, and I was fearful she might have forgotten about me completely, so I wrote a song about it.”

UK music venues are threatened with permanent closure because skyrocketing energy prices are expected to quadruple .

You’ve got all the sound, the stage, the lighting. It literally is all about electricity. Without electricity, there’s nothing.

The pandemic, the cost of living, the Russia/ Ukrainian energy crisis could spell the end of the UK’s live music scene as we know it.

“Without action from the government, we are now modelling that this will close more venues than the pandemic,” he argued. “We don’t see any other outcome.” says Music Venue Trust CEO Mark Davyd

“It feels weird to say it, but unlike during COVID when you could go, ‘OK, we need to raise some money now because in a year’s time the venues will be open’, we can’t do that now because they’ll have to pay another electricity bill next year and the year after that, obviously. I can’t see any end to this unless venues put their prices up.”

Country duo Florida Georgia Line wrapped up their last show as a duo at the Minnesota State Fair on Thursday on August 31st.

What drove the long standing duo apart? Possibly politics, and if was something else, politics still played a likely role.

Rumors have followed Florida Georgia Line since 2020 after the duo had a disagreement.

Hubbard had been an outspoken critic of Trump, and his wife, Hayley, posted her support of VP Kamala Harris, while Kelley hinted supported the outgoing president. Hubbard and his wife unfollowed Kelley on Instagram. Hubbard confirmed that he didn’t want to see Kelley’s posts about Trump.

“I unfollowed BK for a few days while we were in the middle of this election and everything going on,” Hubbard said in 2020. “And I even called him and told him, I said, ‘Hey buddy, I love you. And I love you a lot more in real life than on your Stories right now. That’s why I’m unfollowing you. Nothing personal. I still love you. You’re still my brother.’”

Hubbard did say Kelley wanted to go solo, and there is “no bad blood between the two of them.” Hubbard said they “might revisit getting the duo back together 10 to 15 years down the line.” He said they would not reunite before then, “even if they were offered $1 million to play a wedding.”

Music Festivals ticket sales have declined. Inflation, labor shortages, supply issues, an economic downturn, and an overcrowded market are to blame.

“We had extraordinarily good events in 2021,” said Melissa Ormond, chief operating officer of festivals for AEG Presents and Goldenvoice, which promote dozens of festivals including Coachella and Stagecoach. “As more and more tours felt comfortable hitting the road, it just got to be just a lot of artists out there.”

“There’s an oversaturation of events,” he said, pointing out that audience numbers have dropped on a per-event basis despite overall ticket sales being up. “There are less people buying festival tickets. The industry is asking fewer people to buy more tickets.” said Max Frieser, vice president at Infamous

In the future, festival organizers say, it is important to have a focused event. “The multigenre festivals, with rare exceptions, are not working,” Ms. Ormond said.
