Don McLean Readies ‘Botanical Gardens’ For March 23 Release; Legendary Songwriter To Be Honored In His Hometown; NYC & UK Media Appearances & More!

DON MCLEAN SET TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM BOTANICAL GARDENS MARCH 23

Don’s hometown of New Rochelle, New York set to honor Don on March 21, along with an appearance on BBC’s Breakfast News March 15 with more BBC Radio interviews this week and major media appearances scheduled in New York City March 21 & 22.

 Iconic American singer, songwriter and performer Don McLean is set to release his new album Botanical Gardens on March 23, 2018 via BMG.

Don is set to appear on BBC Breakfast Thursday, March 15 along with multiple BBC radio stations and Absolute Radio in the U.K.

“Greetings from London where we are promoting my new album ‘Botanical Gardens’, said McLean. “The reception has been wonderful and I look forward to coming to New York next, where we will perform at City Winery on Friday the 23rd! I think this new album will do very well. Take a listen to “Ain’t She a Honey” and “Total Eclipse of The Sun” – I hope it will be something people like.”

Don is profiled in a new episode of Heartland TV’s More Than The Music airing Tuesday, March 20 at 8:00pm ET/PT as well as Heartland’s Roku channel and online at watchheartlandtv.com, with an encore viewing Sunday, March 25 at 8:00pm ET/PT.

On March 21, Don’s hometown of New Rochelle, New York will have its own piece of “American Pie” when the world-renowned singer and songwriter will dedicate his existing plaque at the city’s Walk of Fame in Ruby Dee Park at Library Green. The ceremony is open to the public, beginning at 4 PM, and will be hosted by Jennifer Lanser, Executive Director of the New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce. Later that evening the city will honor McLean with a Lifetime Achievement Award at their annual Dinner Dance and Awards ceremony at 7pm. For more information or to RSVP, contact the New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce at info@newrochamber.org, infonewrochamber@gmail.com, call 914-632-5700 or visit newrochellechamber.org.

Don then returns to New York City with appearances scheduled at ABC News Radio, WABC’s Bernie & Sid, iHeart/Premiere Radio Networks, Fox News Radio, United Stations, LifeMinute, and more, ending the week with a performance at City Winery Friday, March 23.

With over 40 gold and platinum records worldwide, his prowess for writing timeless songs is once again captured on Botanical Gardens, as he artfully weaves country, Americana, folk, and boot stomping rock for an eclectic, yet American sound that he is known for.

Botanical Gardens, his 19th studio album and first in 8 years, is arguably one of Don’s most reflective to date. As he characterizes it, “The inspiration for the project started years ago when I would walk in the beautiful gardens in Sydney, Australia near the Opera House. I would dream young dreams and it was a comfort and an inspiration. I was always young inside, like we all are, and I felt it again there.” Further reflecting on the record, Don says, “the whole album really revolves around the title song. Later on I realized that the gardens are really a metaphorical heaven, and there’s a kind of death and rebirth.

Intimacy can be found at the heart of this record, with Don penning personal numbers looking back on a life well-lived, as well as his observations on youth and love. Recording at Watershed Studios in Nashville also allowed a different kind of intimacy for Don and his band, as they were made to “play close and feel the music”, resulting in a raw, yet tight sound throughout.

In nearly 50 years, Don’s songs have become an iconic staple of American music. His music has been performed by artists as diverse as Elvis Presley, Madonna, Fred Astaire, Drake, James Blake, Ellie Goulding, Chet Atkins, Garth Brooks, Weird Al Yankovic, George Michael, Josh Groban, Coolio and Ed Sheeran.

Ben Fields: Wall Street Journal Song Premiere + To Perform on The Bachelorette

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL EXCLUSIVELY PREMIERES BEN FIELDS’ DEBUT SINGLE, “EXTRAORDINARY LIGHT”

 

FIELDS TAPPED FOR AN UPCOMING PERFORMANCE ON ABC’S “THE BACHELORETTE”

The John Lennon Songwriting Award-Winner’s Debut Album
Extraordinary Light to be Released June 17th

ben fields

Today, The Wall Street Journal has exclusively premiered Ben Fields’ debut single, “Extraordinary Light” from his similarly titled upcoming debut album due out on June 17th. CLICK HERE to hear the song The Wall Street Journal describes as “a graceful vintage-style pop song that pairs Fields’ sleepy voice with gentle, rolling piano, a subtly powerful rhythm section and the swell of strings.”

 

Fields has also been tapped to perform on an upcoming episode of ABC’s hit romance reality series, The Bachelorette.

 

Sire Records recently announced the signing of new artist, and John Lennon Songwriter Award recipient, Ben Fields. Fields is set to release his debut album, Extraordinary Light on June 17th, which is available for pre-sale now at http://smarturl.it/ExtraordinaryLight. Extraordinary Light features the lead single mentioned above, as well as “Swede” – the highly praised song that sparked Fields’ achievement of the John Lennon Songwriting Award. The album is a product of Fields’ meticulous craftsmanship, mixed with the mastering and cutting of acclaimed Bernie Grundman (Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” Prince’s “Purple Rain,” Carole King’s “Tapestry”), as well as ingenious collaborations with producer JC Hopkins (Willie Nelson, Norah Jones) and renowned guest vocalists including Jolie Holland and Warren Smith.

 

After a chance meeting with Sire Records’ legendary Seymour Stein (Madonna, The Ramones, The Pretenders, Depeche Mode) at a music conference in Australia – where American born Ben Fields had been living and working in a café – the aspiring singer/songwriter took a leap of faith. Stein had offered Fields his business card and told him to look him up if he was ever in New York City. Well, that was enough for Fields. He packed up his girlfriend, their dog, furniture and moved to Brooklyn, where he now lives. Fields showed up at Stein’s office with music and the rest is history – he was signed to Sire in November 2012.

 

 

Extraordinary Light TRACK LISTING:

1. Extraordinary Light
2. Matilda
3. Swede
4. Fragile Little Heart
5. Worry
6. Mostly, He Says

MARQUEE NIGHTCLUB AT THE COSMOPOLITAN OF LAS VEGAS PRESENTS AXWELL June 10, 2011

MARQUEE NIGHTCLUB AT THE COSMOPOLITAN OF LAS VEGAS PRESENTS
AXWELL
June 10, 2011
First Solo Las Vegas Appearance

The Swedish sensation Axwell, one of the top 10 DJs in the world, will be making his solo Las Vegas debut at Marquee Las Vegas Nightclub on Friday, June 10, 2011. Axwell, a member of the infamous Swedish House Mafia, is a certified expert in sending the club into utter meltdown. With Axwell comes larger-than-life tracks with epic hooks and infectious rhythms, switching between house, techno and electro (and everything in-between) without breaking a sweat. It’s perfect match for Marquee’s spectacular stage, dazzling dancers and state of the art sound system, which draws a packed house every night. And with Marquee firmly established as the number one destination for the world’s premier electronic music talent, it’s the perfect time to indulge in Axwell, king of the sun-kissed summer anthem.

Axwell is a superstar DJ and arguably the most successful and influential remixer of the 21st century, as evidenced by the GRAMMY nomination for his remix with Dirty South of Temper Trap’s “Sweet Disposition.” Axwell’s Midas-like touch has made him the dance hit go-to guy for artists like Madonna, Nelly Furtado, Moby, Flo Rida and Pharrell Williams. Not to mention his original tracks like “Nothing But Love,” a masterful house number featuring fantastic vocals by Errol Reid. On top of what is an already successful solo career, he is one third of Swedish House Mafia with Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello, responsible for smash hits like “One,” “Miami 2 Ibiza” and “Leave The World Behind.” This year, Axwell’s busy touring schedule included the world’s top festivals and clubs, helping to lead him to the Top 10 spot in the famed DJ Magazine Top 100 DJ Poll. Indeed, DJing remains a real passion of his, a way to stay connected with clubbers and their ever-changing tastes. Witness it for yourself at Marquee Las Vegas
