Hear Liam Gallagher’s Gospel-Inspired New Song ‘One Of Us’
Liam Gallagher has dropped another new track from his forthcoming album Why Me? Why Not. The song, “One of Us,” is a meditative, emotionally-driven rock song tinged with strings and gospel backing vocals. Gallagher co-wrote the track with Andrew Wyatt, and the musician’s youngest son Gene played bongos for the recording. Nick Zinner, of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, also appears on guitar.

“‘One of Us’ is about family, friendship and a sense of belonging,” Gallagher said in a statement. “I love the groove and the gospel outro. It reminds me of The Sweet Inspirations.

Jack Mathews: ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ is the Oscar frontrunner

Jack Mathews: ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ is the Oscar frontrunner
As a former film critic and movie columnist, there are few things I enjoy more than a good fight over a much-anticipated, freshly-released picture and we have a doozy going right now over Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” Critics usually square off over new Tarantino movies, but none of his pictures have spawned quite the op-ed fever of “Once,” at least going back 25 years to his “Pulp Fiction.”

Most critics, scholars and academics teaching film theory and the like immediately proclaimed “Pulp Fiction” a masterpiece, citing Tarantino as a genius, or at least a video store clerk savant, predicting his film would change the cinematic landscape for decades to come, and they were not wrong.

Other bright voices were raised in opposition, calling “Pulp Fiction’s” whimsical treatment of violence a grave cultural offense likely to cause actual violence in society, and condemned the movie as

The project is one of two in the works at HBO Max from “Maniac” creator Patrick Somerville and Paramount Television, where Somerville has an overall deal. He is also set to serve as showrunner on an adaptation of the novel “Station Eleven” by Emily St. John Mandel.

Liam Gallagher Meditates on Regret on Emotional Single ‘Once’
Liam Gallagher has released another track off his upcoming solo album Why Me? Why Not. The new single, “Once,” is a poignant acoustic ballad about regret and making the most of your one shot.

The poetic lyrics take center stage on the song, with Gallagher crooning, “I think it’s true what they say/ That the dream is borrowed/ You give it back tomorrow/ Minus the sorrow/ And the pain she just comes in to break up the daydream/ Her knife edge is waving/ To keep from feeling the same thing.

Glen Hansard Is Tired of Being an Earnest Balladeer

Glen Hansard Is Tired of Being an Earnest Balladeer
Glen Hansard once received a nickname from his friend Nico Muhly: Earnest Strum. The name was a way for Muhly, a contemporary composer, to poke fun at the type of exceedingly sincere, traditionally-rooted folk that Hansard has mostly been making for the past dozen years, ever since he rose to unlikely mainstream fame with the success of the 2007 musical drama Once.

In recent years, Hansard himself has grown a bit restless with his reputation as a bearded balladeer. After 2018’s Between Two Shores, the latest in a steady stream of heartfelt solo records,

‘Sing Street’ to Become Stage Musical from ‘Once’ Team

‘Sing Street’ to Become Stage Musical from ‘Once’ Team
Sing Street,” the 2016 coming-of-age musical film from director John Carney, is set to become a stage musical from the same team that developed the stage adaptation of the Tony-winning “Once.”

Carney, who directed both films “Once” and “Sing Street,” has — along with Gary Clark — provided the music and lyrics for the “Sing Street” musical. The book is written by Enda Walsh, who also wrote “Once” and “Lazarus.” Rebecca Taichman (“Indecent”) will direct, with choreography by Sonya Tayeh.

The production will debut off-Broadway as part of the 2050 Artistic Fellowship At New York Theatre Workshop, which is the same location where “Once” initially made its premiere in 2011.

‘Teen Spirit’ Film Review: Elle Fanning Sings – Boy, Does She Sing – in Indie Musical

‘Teen Spirit’ Film Review: Elle Fanning Sings – Boy, Does She Sing – in Indie Musical
Teen Spirit,” which premiered at last fall’s Toronto International Film Festival, has a scene in which our mild-mannered heroine, an aspiring singer Violet, performs a song with such verve and power that everyone who knows her is left with mouths agape.

They’re all thinking exactly the same thing: “We didn’t know she had it in her.”

And “Teen Spirit” might also have that effect on its viewers — because while we’ve seen great things in the past from Elle Fanning, who plays Violet, we’ve never seen her sing and perform like this. Like the characters on screen, we didn’t know she had it in her.

Fanning’s performance is one of the most surprising things about “Teen Spirit,” a goodhearted and entertaining film about stardom in the “American Idol” era that also marks the directorial debut of Max Minghella. The actor is now following in

Lucille Lortel Award nominations give Tony hopefuls ‘Be More Chill,’ Heidi Schreck, and Mike Birbiglia a bump

The Off-Broadway League announced nominations for the 34th Annual Lucille Lortel Awards on April 3rd. As the first nominations announcement of the theatre awards season, several Tony Award hopefuls got an early boost thanks to their previous Off-Broadway incarnations. It’s common for Broadway shows to begin their New York life Off-Broadway before transferring to the Great White Way. Several of this season’s high profile productions followed this trend.

Of the Broadway transfers, “Be More Chill” performed the best with the Lortels. The teen sci-fi musical netted four nominations: Outstanding Musical, Featured Actor in a Musical (George Salazar), Featured Actress in a Musical (Stephanie Hsu), and Projection Design.

This is great news for the hit show. It has a cult teen following, but is narrowly holding onto fourth place in Gold Derby’s combined Tony odds for Best Musical. At the Lortel Awards, “Be More Chill” will have

How heartbreaking is this? “Shallow” is part of a dying breed of Academy Award winners – love songs

“You’ll know before the dance is through that you’re in love with her and she’s in love with you.”

That lyric is from the very first Best Song Oscar winner, “The Continental,” from the 1934 Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers musical, “The Gay Divorcee.” It’s a celebration of the power of dance to ignite the flames of desire.

Now “Shallow,” a more clear-eyed view on matters of the heart (“Ain’t it hard keeping it so hardcore?”) from “A Star Is Born” is part of that Academy Award tradition. But the fact is, such honored love songs are becoming a rarity.

It used to be that romantic tunes regularly caught Oscar’s ear. Occasionally, a song of yearning like 1939’s “Over the Rainbow” from “The Wizard of Oz,” “When You Wish Upon a Star” from 1940’s “Pinocchio” and “White Christmas” from 1942’s “Holiday Inn” broke through. There

‘Blinded by the Light’ Film Review: Joyous Indie Musical Soars to Songs of Bruce Springsteen

‘Blinded by the Light’ Film Review: Joyous Indie Musical Soars to Songs of Bruce Springsteen
One of the running themes of “Blinded by the Light” is how Bruce Springsteen was considered irrelevant by British teens in 1987 — but the lengthy standing ovation for the film at Sundance on Sunday evening and the $15 million sale that followed in short order on Monday morning made it clear that Sundance has a new Boss this year.

And “Blinded by the Light” is pulling out of here to win, to quote a certain Jersey boy.

Adapted from the terrific Sarfraz Manzoor memoir “Greetings From Bury Park” and directed by Gurinder Chadha with the same humanistic zest she brought to “Bend It Like Beckham,” “Blinded by the Light” is corny, silly, as overblown as one of Springsteen’s grandest anthems and damn near irresistible.

You might shake your head at characters breaking into full-throated versions of “The Promised Land,” “Thunder Road” and especially “Born to Run,” but if you don’t surrender to this grand lunacy,

Lady Gaga isn’t the first performer in a film to compete for a Best Song Oscar — some have even won

Lady Gaga isn’t the first performer in a film to compete for a Best Song Oscar — some have even won
Can we agree that among the eight Oscar nominations granted “A Star Is Born,” its likeliest win will be Best Song for “Shallow”? That soaring ballad sold the music-packed showbiz saga’s first trailer like nobody’s business as Lady Gaga‘s Ally started to roar before a mic. The pop chanteuse herself would receive the honor alongside her co-writers Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt. The song has already won a Golden Globe and is up for four Grammys, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

Judging by the combined odds chart based on rankings by Experts, Editors and Users, “Shallow’s” support is quite deep, with more than 2,200 predicting it will win.

Songs that bring home the Academy Award usually benefit from actually being performed onscreen and not just heard, and Gaga and Bradley Cooper do a mesmerizing job of selling this tune. But

Oscar Flashback: Best Original Songs of the late 2000s, including ‘Falling Slowly,’ ‘Jai Ho’
This article marks Part 24 of the Gold Derby series analyzing 84 years of Best Original Song at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at the timeless tunes recognized in this category, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the winners.

The 2005 Oscar nominees in Best Original Song were:

“In the Deep” from “Crash

“It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp” from “Hustle & Flow

“Travelin’ Thru” from “Transamerica

Won: “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp” from “Hustle & Flow

Should’ve won: “Travelin’ Thru” from “Transamerica

Let’s first get two things out of the way in 2005 Best Original Song – one, “In the Deep” is as dreary and heavy-handed as the picture it’s featured in and two, the sublime “A Love That Will Never Grow Old” from “Brokeback Mountain” should have had this prize in the bag. That it wasn’t even

Lady Gaga is all but certain to win at least one Oscar on Feb. 24 as part of the team that wrote the song “Shallow.” She sings the smash hit in “A Star is Born” and is credited as a tunesmith alongside a trio of men: Andrew Wyatt, Anthony Rossomando and Mark Ronson.

‘Shallow’ will make Lady Gaga the 11th female composer to win Best Original Song Oscar
Lady Gaga is predicted to win two Oscars for her first film as leading lady: Best Actress and Best Original Song. While she is locked in a tight race for the acting award, with Glenn Close looking for her first win after six losses, Lady Gaga is all but certain to take home the Academy Award for her work on the hit tune “Shallow.”

She is credited as a co-writer with a trio of men: Andrew Wyatt, Anthony Rossomando and Mark Ronson. Should she prevail, she’d become the 11th woman to win an Oscar for composing. The first, Barbra Streisand, also won for writing the music for a song in her version of “A Star is Born.” Back in 1976, Streisand wrote and sang “Evergreen,” which has become one of the top hits in her repertoire.

Since Streisand made Academy Awards history, nine female composers have followed her up to the podium.

Lady Gaga would be the 14th woman to win the Best Original Song Oscar

Lady Gaga would be the 14th woman to win the Best Original Song Oscar
Lady Gaga (“A Star Is Born”) is in a heated Best Actress Oscar race with Glenn Close (“The Wife”) and Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”), but even if she comes up short there, chances are she’ll still leave Oscar night a winner. Gaga is considered a near lock to prevail in Best Original Song with “Shallow,” which would make her just the 14th woman to win the category.

Best Original Song was first introduced at the 7th Academy Awards, honoring the films of 1934, but like nearly all of the non-gendered categories, it’s been dominated by men. Dorothy Fields was the first woman to win the category for co-writing “The Way You Look Tonight” from “Swing Time” (1936) with Jerome Kern, but it would be another 32 years before a second woman triumphed; Marilyn Bergman won for penning “The Windmills of Your Mind” from “The Thomas Crown Affair” (1968) with Michel Legrand and her husband Alan Bergman.

Pearl Jam’s Best Bootlegs: The Ultimate Guide

Pearl Jam’s Best Bootlegs: The Ultimate Guide
Most major rock acts go on tour and play the same exact set every night, sometimes even repeating their stage banter verbatim like they’re reading from a script. Pearl Jam have always taken a different path. Their setlist is like the complete Pearl Jam catalog on shuffle where any song can surface at any point. Back in the 1990s, it caused their hardcore fans to feverishly trade bootlegs on cassette tapes and burned CDs, but in 2000 the group began selling pristine recordings of every show.
