  • Mar 18

A GROUNDBREAKING VIRTUAL CONCERT PERFORMANCE FROM MADISON BEER, SONY MUSIC AND VERIZON COMING TO TIKTOK

Dazzling, Special Effects Filled Showcase of Songs from Her Debut Album Life Support Premiering March 19th

Immersive Reality Music Experience Takes Incredibly Lifelike Visuals to New Heights

NEW YORK – March 18, 2021 – The future of virtual concerts is here. Epic Records singer songwriter Madison Beer is debuting her groundbreaking new immersive reality music experience in its entirety exclusively on TikTok LIVE.

An ultra-realistic digital avatar of Madison so incredibly lifelike she has to be seen to be believed, will perform songs from her debut album, Life Support, in a dazzling, special effects filled showcase premiering on Madison’s TikTok account (@madisonbeer) at 3PM PT/6PM ET on Friday, March 19th.

A Groundbreaking Virtual Concert Performance From Madison Beer, Sony Music and Verizon Coming to TikTok

Brought to you by Sony Music Entertainment, TikTok, and Verizon in partnership with Sony Immersive Music Studios, the Madison Beer Immersive Reality Concert Experience takes place in a full digital recreation of the Sony Hall concert venue in New York City and features a stunning presentation of Madison that reimagines what’s possible for music in virtual spaces. 

The experience is powered by cutting-edge innovations in real-time 3D creation technology and virtual production that highlight the incredible new opportunities for artists to push the boundaries of their imagination and creativity.

Said Beer, “Experimenting with virtual production technologies for this performance was like nothing I’ve ever done before. Exploring new ways of bringing my music to fans was a really fulfilling experience, especially in a time where we can’t physically be together to experience live music.”

Said Sylvia Rhone, Chairwoman and CEO, Epic Records, “Music fans have never seen a virtual concert like this. Madison Beer is transforming the viewing experience with this unique and visually groundbreaking showcase of her innovative vision, and we are thrilled to be helping her share it with the world. Supporting the development of cutting-edge immersive experiences like this is one of the many ways Epic Records works to create differentiated opportunities for our artists to expand their creative options and delight fans.”

Said Corey Sheridan, Head of Music Content & Partnerships, TikTok US,“At TikTok we are proud to drive the cultural conversation and support artists providing the kind of communal, interactive music moments that we’ve all sorely missed during the pandemic, and Madison Beer’s virtual experience is as close to being at a concert as you can get from the safety of your own home.”

Life Support is a candid, audacious and sonically eclectic statement from a self-made star who refuses to play by pop’s usual rules. It sees Madison where she thrives – commanding creative control through writing her own songs, producing and creating her own visuals. 

Expressing and inspiring a rollercoaster of emotions through spellbinding vocals over a broad-ranging sound-bed reflective of Madison’s own diverse musical tastes, Life Support is experimental, honest and ardent. The album explores mental health, the dizzying highs and rock-bottom lows of toxic relationships and the atypical life that Madison has led since famously being discovered on YouTube at age 12.

Get it here via Epic Records.

With over 14 million followers, Madison Beer is an active member of the TikTok community, amassing more than 1.5 billion views on her videos that engage with loyal fans who and share new music.

Join us on March 19 at 3PM PT/6PM PT live on TikTok as we celebrate the premiere of this spectacular performance with special trivia, a behind the scenes interview with Madison, and more.

“The process of putting this performance together is like nothing I’ve ever done before,” said Beer. “I love creating visuals, so it was really exciting for me to get involved in the process and make something special for my fans. We’re all disappointed we can’t go out and experience these songs on tour together, so creating a performance like this one feels like a true gift.”

Said Sylvia Rhone, Chairwoman and CEO, Epic Records, “Madison Beer is raising the bar of what’s possible in a virtual concert performance and we couldn’t be more excited.

  • Legendary Global Icon Mariah Carey Returns With New Music
  • Sep 13

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Today, incomparable, multi-platinum, multiple Grammy award winning global superstar Mariah Carey (the best-selling female artist of all time with 18 Hot 100 #1 hits) returns with the first taste of her new music, “GTFO,” available worldwide now. Get it HERE via Epic Records!

The new song is a tempting first helping from her upcoming new album, due out later this year, whetting fans’ appetites for the album’s stunning kickoff single, “With You,” scheduled for an October 5 release. Both tracks are from her upcoming 15th studio album, her first studio album since 2014. “GTFO” is produced by Grammy nominated/multiple ASCAP award winner Nineteen85, who has worked with Drake and Jordan Manswell (Daniel Caesar), among others. An early treat for fans, atmospheric beats abound on the new track, with Mariah finding even more nuance in her seamlessly-spun vocal repertoire, her velvety, middle-range virtuosity once again dazzling in breathy hues. The sultry track is the first serving of new music from the acclaimed singer/songwriter/producer since inking an exclusive partnership with her imprint Butterfly MC Records and Epic in the spring of 2017. Mariah will share the music video for the new song tomorrow, September 14. The clip is directed by Sarah McColgan (Kelly Clarkson, Charli XCX). Her official single, “With You,” which arrives on October 5, seductively sets the stage for Mariah’s eagerly anticipated album coming later in 2018.

The announcement of the new songs, coming on the heels of her much-heralded Las Vegas Residency, ‘The Butterfly Returns,’ marks the impassioned return of one of the most revered and identifiable voices in pop history. She’s also putting the finishing touches on her forthcoming album. The flurry of creative activity has turned up the buzz with her enormous social media following, heightening the unbreakable rapport between the personable star and her avid fan base which she affectionately refers to as her ‘lambily.’ “I wanted to give my fans and everyone a first listen that wasn’t so serious,” says Mariah. “I’ve had so much fun making this album, and I wanted the first moment to reflect that light-hearted spirit.”

Mariah’s enthusiasm extends to her recent live endeavors. The multitalented star finished up her Caesar’s Palace residency on September 10 to rave reviews, and will be performing at the eighth annual iHeartRadio Music Festival at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena on September 21. A range of unique promotional ventures are in the works for fall, surrounding the October 5 “With You” release and subsequent video, with more surprises in store for fans to close out the year. Mariah has also announced plans to continue ‘The Butterfly Returns’ headlining show at the Colosseum in Caesar’s Palace in February of 2019.

Exhibiting a transcendent vocal ability, irrepressible staying power and unparalleled body of work that only a handful of artists in the modern era have achieved, Mariah Carey is poised to deliver via Epic Records/Butterfly MC Records one of the most accomplished albums of her incredible career.
