With the album’s May 25 release date fast approaching, the Glasgow, Scotland-based electropop act have brought Berninger back around as a featured vocalist on their new album’s second single “My Enemy.””We’ve all been huge fans of The National for a long time,” CHVRCHES singer Lauren Mayberry explained to NME, detailing that the two bands had shared a few festival billings together before becoming close while working on releases for Berninger’s 7-Inches For Planned Parenthood fundraising initiative.”[W]hen it came time to record ‘My Enemy,’ Iain [Cook] and Martin [Doherty] suggested I email Matt to see if he’d like to sing on it,” Mayberry adds. “We never realistically thought he’d have time to do it but he replied right away and recorded the track at his house the next day.”The resulting collaboration touches all the right notes of CHVRCHES trademark sound: it’s lyrically lush and sonically layered enough to wow crowds at festival stages, but also packed with hooks and catchy vocal melodies that should play well on radio and streaming platforms. Email Facebook On the subject of the new album as a whole, Mayberry revealed that Love Is Dead is about, “coming to terms with the fact that there are great things in the world and there are awful things in the world and that you can’t get one without the other.”Pulling no punches in his own description of the new record, CHVRCHES’ guitarist and producer Iain Cook added, “we’re f*****, the world is f*****. But there’s an ellipses at the end. …Like, how did we get to this point? And how do we move on from this point? It’s ‘Love Is Dead, we’re f*****, what’s next?'”Getting The Latest Music News Just Got Easier. Introducing: GRAMMY Bot. Find it On KIK and Facebook MessengerRead more

Kangana RanautInstagramYesterday, media was flooded with reports stating that ‘Kangana Ranaut has been interfering with the shooting of Mental Hai Kya and that she has been unhappy with some of the scenes, which had to be re-shot, thus causing the delay in the release of the movie.However, director of Mental Hai Kya, Prakash Kovelamudi has rubbished these reports.”On my set, Kangana was an actor; a professional one, and a creative asset. Both Kangana and Rajkummar are powerhouse performers, whom I enjoyed directing. I am happy to see how their characters have turned out. Mental Hai Kya is an intriguing thriller with doses of quirk. The film challenges the norms, and I am thrilled to bring to the audience something original,” the director said in a statement.Further denying the reports about some portions of the film being re-shot, the director said, “We finished the first leg in Mumbai, the second in London, and the last one in Mumbai again. The final schedule was wrapped last month. That’s all! All other conjecture is baseless.”Produced by Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor and Shaailesh R Singh, Mental Hai Kya’s trailer is scheduled to be launched later this month and the film will hit the screens on July 26, 2019.
