Hear Brooke Fraser's new single Kings & Queens

Brooke Fraser is back with KINGS AND QUEENS, the first official single from her forthcoming album. Fans can get a hold of the single from the 26th September via iTunes!

KINGS AND QUEENS was recorded earlier this year in London with producer David Kosten (Bat For Lashes, Marina and the Diamonds). The track's huge hooks shimmer over buoyant synths and a throbbing beat.

As she embarks on an exciting musical evolution of her own, Brooke describes the song as one about seeking identity. "There are so many songs about love and lost love, but identity sits at the root of that – our desire to belong. Kings and Queens touches on that – finding yourself, the search for an anchor, the truth of who you are and how you live."


Switchfoot Bassist Tim Foreman Sings Live for 1st time

If you're a massive Switchfoot fan, you'll want to check this out! To celebrate the release of their EP, Switchfoot performed "What It Costs" live for an American audience, Tim Foreman trading his usual bass for an acoustic guitar. Tim took the spotlight for the song, with his brother Jon singing back-up, and the song followed with an outpouring of praise from Jon about his brother's performance. They admitted that they didn't want there to be any "fanfare" leading up to Tim's performance, but Jon couldn't help but gush about his brother's first time singing lead in a live setting. Tim added, "That was scary! I don't know how you do that every night."

John Mark McMillan in the South Island

"Silver Shore" (Acoustic in New Zealand) is a track featured on John Mark McMillan's upcoming project "The Borderland Sessions," an alternate take on the original album "Borderland," which releases September 30 under his new label Lionhawk Records.

iTunes preorder begins September 23 with an immediate download of "Monsters Talk (feat. Bear Rinehart)".

The Borderland Sessions is an intimate collection of recordings of the entire Borderland album with special guest vocalists Ray Dalton (featured on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Can't Hold Us"), Bear Rinehart (of NEEDTOBREATHE), Kim Walker-Smith (of Jesus Culture), Sarah McMillan, and Brady Toops. The Sessions also includes full commentary from McMillan, sharing his thoughts and stories behind the songs.

"The Borderland Sessions is not a 'B-sides' project," shares John Mark McMillan. "From the beginning we knew most of these songs could go in totally different directions. To satisfy our need to explore all of the options, we planned to release a record with alternate versions. The idea was to expose people to more of the basic songwriting and lyrical elements of Borderland while also showing off the production ideas that we just couldn't fit on the original release. We recorded so many beautiful parts, like clarinet, cello, and vibes that we couldn't use on the first round, so The Borderland Sessions gave us an opportunity to share those special elements. It was a dream to collaborate with Ray Dalton, Bear Rinehart, Kim Walker-Smith, Brady Toops and my all-time favorite singer Sarah McMillan. What a thrilling opportunity to work with some of my favorite voices."
