A Great Big World‘s debut album, Is There Anybody Out There?, just hit stores yesterday, but those of you who turned into VH1′s exclusive livestream of the band’s concert from New York City’s Highline Ballroom last week were lucky enough to get a special introduction to the material.
A Great Big World blew the roof off of Manhattan’s Highline Ballroom last night, playing their new album Is There Anybody Out There? in its entirety in front of a live audience for the first time ever. The album doesn’t officially drop until Tuesday (1/21), but if you were lucky enough to snag a ticket for the sold-out show or you tuned into the VH1 livestream last night, you got to pay witness to a new act really starting to come into its own. But if you happened to miss the show, you’re in luck — we’ll be rolling out clips from last night’s big show over the course of the next couple of days.
When we sit down to chat with the new members of our You Oughta Know family each month, we inevitably end up learning some kooky things about them, (which isn’t surprising considering that the franchise is called “You Oughta Know,” after all!). Our chat with A Great Big World—who, we should mention, you can watch in concert tonight at 9PM/8C on an exclusive VH1 livestream—was no exception, as we learned all about Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino‘s preferences when it comes to lingerie.
A Great Big World have been named VH1′s first You Oughta Know artist of 2014, and we’re excited to announce that we’ll be livestreaming a concert of theirs on January 16—that’s tomorrow night!— at 9PM/8C at agreatbigworld.vh1.com.
A Great Big World have the honor of being VH1′s first You Oughta Know artist of 2014, and we’ve done little else so far this year besides sitting in our office staring at our calendar, (not so) patiently waiting for January 16 to arrive. “What’s January 16?”, you ask. That’s when the exciting two-piece will be playing a concert at Manhattan’s Highline Ballroom, which VH1 will be livestreaming at agreatbigworld.vh1.com at 9 PM/8C.
A Great Big World have been named as VH1′s You Oughta Know artist for the month of January, making them the first members of the 2014 class of this prestigious family of artists. The latest to join the lineage of piano-pop acts like Coldplay, Keane and The Fray, A Great Big World is made up of Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino, two guys who first met while studying at New York University.
Hey, did you hear Beyoncé put out a surprise album? Queen Bey majorly shakes up this week’s Top Current Albums chart with her iTunes exclusive, which shattered records at the online retailer and delivered a lump of coal to last week’s chart champ Garth Brooks. Here’s everything you need to know about Beyoncé as well as the rest of this week’s chart news:
Move over, “Someone Like You” because there’s a new heart-wrenchingly gorgeous breakup song to make us sob into our morning Cinnamon Toast Crunch (don’t judge). The delicate beauty of indie duo A Great Big World‘s “Say Something” is enough to make us cry, but the incredible success story behind this little-song-that-could is enough to cheer us right back up again.
