Judith Hill Photo: NPG Records 2015 Judith Hill's debut album is set for release on NPG Records October 23rd, 2015. The album was produced by PRINCE at his Paisley Park Studios in Minneapolis. The wide release follows the album's unprecedented introduction in March 2015, when Live Nation made it available to newsletter subscribers for free for a brief 48 hours. Hill co-produced the soulful Back In Time with multi-platinum icon Prince. Their creative partnership began after Judith named the legendary artist as her dream collaborator in an interview. Prince called her shortly thereafter and invited her to Paisley Park Studios. The playful behind-the-scenes video, which premiered today, captures the jam-like vibe of the subsequent recording sessions... The scintillating, horn-fueled "Cry, Cry, Cry," one of eleven tracks penned by Hill for Back In Time, is streaming now on TIDAL and Spotify. Rolling Stone has praised Hill's "seasoned, soulful sound" and The Wall Street Journal noted, "[She] has pipes, experience, style." The Huffington Post hailed her as "a standout talent" and Idolator observed, "Her pitch, range and style are absolutely outstanding." Hill, who opened for Prince on his spring 2015 tour, duets with him on "Million $ Show," the lead-off track on his new album, HITNRUN Phase One, which was released this month. She won a GRAMMY® earlier this year when the Morgan Neville-directed documentary 20 Feet From Stardom was honored as Best Music Film. The film, which also won an Oscar, shines the spotlight on the untold true story of singers like Hill and co-stars Darlene Love, Merry Clayton and Lisa Fischer, who have backed some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. Judith has supported such artists as the late Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder,Elton John, John Legend and Josh Groban. Hill, who wrote her first song when she was only four years old, comes from a musical family. Her mother, a classical pianist from Japan, and her father, a funk bass player, both played with Sly Stone, Chaka Khan, Rufus and many other artists.-DocFB For album track list & diagnosis, click here!

Allie X Album Cover The enigmatic artist Allie X has announced details of her much anticipated debut release. CollXtion I will arrive April 7, 2015, just over a year after Allie X first appeared online. "I am very pleased to announce CollXtion I, and hopefully answer some questions you and I both have. As you collect the pieces of CollXtion I, I hope you will feel comfortable to adopt X into your own life." CollXtion I is a full multimedia Xperience centered around seven songs. It is the first in a series of CollXtions to be issued in the coming months.  CollXtion I will allow participants to gather songs, videos, digital installations, and other media that begin to fashion the world of a protagonist known as "X."  Designed as both a multimedia, narrative and collaborative experience, CollXtion I will be accompanied by a variety of features, including X's notorious spinning GIFs, some of the raw components used by X to create her striking work such as song stems and photo layers, and a comic which will reveal the first chapter in the Story of X. Items will be released gradually to allow participants to "collect" the ever-growing CollXtion. Fans are encouraged to become participants in X's world by using these elements to make their own "Xart," which will then be featured in X's "Xhibit" digital gallery HERE.-DocFB Diagnosis: The Toronto-born X has developed a distinctive amalgam of electro,  detuned, dreampop, all built around her provocative songcraft and wholly original persona. Now based in Los Angeles, X first unleashed "CATCH" upon an unsuspecting SoundCloud in early 2014 and almost immediately found a fervent online fan following. Among their numbers was Katy Perry, who described herself as "obsessed" with the track in a tweet to her 51+ million Twitter followers.  For track listing, click here!
