Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Neil Diamond gets a comprehensive compilation of his career with All-Time Greatest Hits, a 23-track collection that will be released July 8 on Capitol Records/UMe, marking the first release since signing a long-term recording agreement with the iconic label, Capitol Records.

Throughout an illustrious and wide-ranging musical career, Neil Diamond has charted 37 Top 10 singles and 16 Top 10 albums in the U.S. and has sold more than 128 million records worldwide, racking up 72 multi-platinum, platinum and gold album certifications in the United States alone.

Dark Hall Mansion To Release Beatles HELP Prints By Steve Thomas On May 23, 2014

Dark Hall Mansion is excited to introduce its latest officially licensed limited edition Beatles release: “HELP” by contemporary artist, Steve Thomas.

Dark Hall Mansion, working with Apple Corps Ltd and Bravado International, their North American licensing agent, will release their new 4-print Beatles limited edition screen print on May 23, 2014. Artist Steve Thomas has referenced various iconic 1965 Beatles touchstones for his “HELP” set-the classic ski slope photo stills of the Beatles during the filming of “HELP,” some exceedingly rare vintage promotional door panels used in the initial film campaign promoting “HELP’s” original release, and of course, the legendary “HELP” album cover itself, all while making the 4-print design and set very much his own.

Rendered in sharp, bold colors, both Standard and Variant editions set their own distinctive tones, each individual print within each set measures 18″ x 24″ with the yellow Standard edition fully screen printed and the blue artist-signed Variant edition via giclee beautifully capturing Steve’s gradient fade background that harkens to those classic Beatles “HELP” stills.

With an extremely limited release of only 200 Standard Edition 4-print sets available for all Beatles fans, worldwide, and an even more limited, artist-signed Variant edition of only 50 4-print sets with all 4 prints individually signed by artist Steve Thomas, it’s a Beatles release collectors will not want to miss.

The Standard edition Beatles 4-print “HELP” set will price at $250 and includes free shipping anywhere in the world.

XSCAPE, Long Awaited New Music From Michael Jackson Out On May 13, 2014

michael-jackson-xscape

On May 13, 2014 Epic Records, in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson, will release XSCAPE, an album of new music by the internationally beloved music icon and King of Pop, Michael Jackson. The project features eight new tracks, which the world will be hearing for the very first time on the new album. For the ultimate fan experience, XSCAPE will also be available in a Deluxe Edition, which includes all of the sourced Michael Jackson recordings in their original form. The XSCAPE standard and Deluxe Editions are available for pre-order beginning April 1 on iTunes.com/MichaelJackson and elsewhere, and available at all retailers worldwide on May 13.

XSCAPE is executive produced by Epic Records Chairman and CEO L.A. Reid, who, after an initial mining of Jackson’s archives by the Estate, was granted unlimited access to the treasures representing four decades of material on which Jackson had completed his vocals.

Reid curated the final list of recordings to deliver to the producers, who retooled the production to add a fresh, contemporary sound that retains Jackson’s essence and integrity. It’s a process Reid calls “contemporizing.” The album’s lead producer, Timbaland was one of a handful of producers Reid believed had the gravitas, depth and range to creatively engage with Jackson’s work. Additional producers include global hitmakers Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome “Jroc” Harmon and John McClain.

The title of this album honors Michael’s album naming process. He always chose a song from the album to name his projects and, beginning with THRILLER, used only one word titles, each with an edgy quality to them. This is true of the new project. Written by Michael Jackson and Jerkins, and produced by Jackson and Jerkins, “Xscape” has further significance in that it is the one track on the album that was ‘contemporized’ by the producer who recorded it originally in the studio with Michael.

XSCAPE is a long awaited collection of exciting new music that will thrill the legions of fans of one of the world’s most revered and best-selling artists, as well as attract a whole new generation discovering his artistry for the first time. In conjunction with the release of XSCAPE, Epic / Sony Music will launch an unprecedented global campaign with the One Sony sister companies, Sony Corporation, Sony Mobile Communications, and Sony Network Entertainment International drawing from all of Sony’s strengths and consumer reach.

The track listing for the eagerly anticipated album is as follows:

1. “Love Never Felt So Good” feat. Justin Timberlake
2. “Chicago”
3. “Loving You”
4. “A Place With No Name”
5. “Slave to the Rhythm”
6. “Do You Know Where Your Children Are”
7. “Blue Gangsta”
8. “Xscape”

More news about Michael Jackson’s upcoming album will be revealed in the coming weeks. Keep visiting www.michaeljackson.com for new details.
