Daniel Caesar - NEVER ENOUGH - Republic Records
Multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer Daniel Caesar effortlessly floats across the gamut of contemporary R&B with his third studio album NEVER ENOUGH.

The Tallest Man On Earth - Henry St. - ANTI
Kristian Matsson has never remained in one place for very long. Having spent much of the last decade touring around the world as The Tallest Man On Earth, Matsson has captivated audiences using, as The New York Times describes, “every inch of his long guitar cord to roam the stage: darting around, crouching, stretching, hip-twitching, perching briefly and jittering away...Mr. Matsson is a guitar-slinger rooted in folk, and his songs are troubadour ballads at heart.” Now, Matsson returns as The Tallest Man on Earth with Henry St., his sixth studio album following 2012’s There’s No Leaving Now, full of “vivid imagery, clever turns-of-phrase, and devastating, world-weary observations” (Under The Radar) and 2015’s Dark Bird Is A Home, his “most personal record... surreal and dreamlike” (Pitchfork).
