Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital in Nashville, TN has provided a music therapy program for their young patients there since 2005 when Tom Founce started it as a tribute to his musically gifted son Julian, who was a patient there and had passed away that year. The program specifically encourages the children them to express themselves through songwriting and after collecting these songs over several years, music therapist Jenny Plume had the idea to not only record them, but take it one step further.
Everybody Has a Storycame together through the resources of Music City and once Nashville’s stars got wind of the project, they were quick to jump on board. Artists like Faith Hill, Amy Grant, Kix Brooks,Johnny Reid,Vince Gilland more took to the studio to bring this music to life with. This project not only fulfills the dreams of these children, but helps raise money and awareness of their everyday struggles and triumphs.

It’s rare that an artist’s new material becomes a “no brainer,” for most listeners, but in spite of Daft Punk’s notorious elusiveness, they’ve been one of the biggest conversations in the music industry since they ever-so-simply updated their website with their iconic helmet. Fans didn’t think twice about checking out the infectious single, “Get Lucky,” which has run rampant on the airwaves. They originally started working on this album side-by-side with the critically acclaimed TRON Soundtrack, but after being unhappy with the result, they quickly switched gears to include live studio musicians, a seismic shift from their synth-heavy past. However, this sound is undeniably Daft Punk and an evolution that best matches the movement that has occurred leading up to this album and will sure to send shockwaves for a while to come.

Jared Leto and co. hardly took a minute to sit down after the release of This is War and a Guinness Book of World Record-breaking tour (309 shows over two years.) While rumors had swirled that there may not be another album following the highly conceptual 2009 release, the band quickly got their post-road bearings and jumped back into the studio, creating yet another group of thematic songs, this time following the four main ideas in the title of the album. After massive success over three previous albums, the band has earned their big entrances, which included a first-ever debut of a commercial single debut aboard the International Space Station SpaceX CRS-2. The band embarks on an overseas tour next month, later hitting Australia and Japan as well as one stop in San Diego in September, likely accompanied by other US dates TBA (fingers crossed.)
