Title: Hunger
Artist: Florence and the Machine
Album: High As Hope
Released: June 29, 2018
 This new single, “Hunger” by Florence and The Machine is more emotional then some of their older music like their hit single “Dog Days are over” because it shines a light on a topic most of us turn a blind eye too and that is the fact that we all have a hunger and desire for love. Florence Welch (singer) says; “This song is about the ways we look for love in things that are perhaps not love, and how attempts to feel less alone can sometimes isolate us more.” They wanted to make this single more vulnerable so there is a deeper connection between the band and listeners and by listening to “Hunger” they have succeeded. The full album High As High that includes “Hunger” drops on June 29th.

Title: Have It All
Artist: Jason Mraz
Album: Have It All – Single
Released: April 26, 2018
Jason Mraz has always been one to bring the good vibes, but even he’ll admit that the current events of recent years have had him feeling down. “The world had changed a lot since 2012,” Mraz says in a statement. “More people are marching for their freedoms and equality; to be seen and heard. Activism is back in style. I wrote a lot of frustrated, angry, even sad songs between then and now, but nothing I wanted to come forward with; nothing I wanted to sing.” Instead of moving forward with the not-so-happy tunes he had penned, the 40-year-old singer reflected on a trip to Myanmar in 2012, where he had a moving visit with a Buddhist monk. Mraz received a blessing from the monk that resulted in a song called “Have It All,” which he was inspired to bring to light amid the world’s tough times. Jason Mraz will be at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion this August with Brett Dennen!

Title: Sharon
Artist: Matt Costa

Costa’s weaves his experiences floating between Northern and Southern California help shape the romantically tragic story of the siblings. “Seeing the landscape and where life can pull you within one state…” Costa says. “It is all these things—the ‘bite that is eternal, the smile in the neon’—and it has fangs. They stick with you: the romantic, the tragic, all that. It’s the characters’ story and my story, too, contemporary but still tortured by the past. It’s a window into a time period but spoken as if it’s the present. The beauty of love and loss doesn’t have a date on it; it’s timeless.”  You can catch Matt Costa at the Sinclair on May 23rd!
