A new recording by The Pop Hypothesis will be featured on another online cover compilation by At Sea Compilations, which is set to be released tomorrow.
We have contributed a cover of Tori Amos’ song „Leather“ from her solo debut album “Little Earthquakes” (1992) to the album “Freebird: A Tori Amos Tribute”. It will be available for download on the label’s homepage and on Bandcamp.
The video for “Stay for Christmas” has reached a first milestone as it exceeded 1000 views on YouTube these days. Thanks to everyone who contributed! But this is only a starting point of course as the song is bound to return every Christmas to come. Forever … and ever … and ever …
Also “Life According to a Pop Star” passed the 800 views mark and the two version of “Madelaine” have over 1000 views combined.
The statistics as of today:
“Stay for Christmas” 1032 views
“Life According to a Pop Star” 804 views
“Madelaine” (Version 2) 661 views
“Madelaine” (Version 1) 362 views
I beg you to stay for another day
For the gin, for the fun, for our love
Take your coat if you go, it is going to snow
But inside it is cosy and warm
I beg you to stay just for another day
For the gin, for the fun, for our love
So rest for a while, warm your feet by the fire
If you stay, I’ll keep you safe from harm
I won’t make any promises I know that I can’t keep
No reindeer will be flying by, no Santa in your sleep
No angels playing on a harp, no oxen and no sheep
Yet candles will be burning bright, this Christmas can’t be beat
Who would have thought that of all people The Pop Hypothesis would release a Christmas record? But do not fear for our sanity – of course it is just ironic. In an unironic way though. Or was it unironic in an ironic way? I always get that mixed up.
So, if you think you’ll get sick if you have to listen to Last Christmas one more time but you still can’t do without a proper Christmas earworm to haunt and torment you for weeks and weeks to come – look no further! And don’t forget to check out Either Or, the brand new and not so jolly song on the B-side!
This time we finally managed to produce the music video in time for the single release. It’s up on YouTube, you can watch it below. I’m sure it will perfectly put you in the Christmas spirit and prepare you for all the annoying hardships Christmas season may harness.
The video guest stars our good friends The Legends of Rhythm and Gino which marks the first time in 24 years that all original members of The Legendary Film Corporation have acted together. Let’s see what that reunion might lead to…
Some time ago we invited our fans to participate in the video for our latest single “Life According to a Pop Star”. We encouraged them to let out their inner pop stars and dress up and sing and dance to the song. And a lot of people actually did that! And more…
As you sent us so many videos editing took much longer than expected but here is the finished video! We uploaded it on YouTube, it might even turn up on television.
So, a big thank you to everybody who took part in it – you’re pop stars now!
This summer we finally found the time to shoot a “real” music video for our first single “Madelaine”. The images in the video refer to the single cover which itself was inspired by a line in the original lyrics by Paul Roland.
Due to time constraints, weather conditions and a rather uncooperative horse we had to improvise a lot during the shoot and couldn´t stick to the script, thus the story in the video is only loosely connected to the story told in the lyrics. We still think that the video’s atmosphere complements the song’s one quite well.
The video can be found on Youtube (see below) and in the upcoming video section of our homepage. Who knows, it may even turn up on televison.
This week should also see the last shooting day for the video to our recent single “Life According to a Pop Star”. This video containing clips of fan participation will be released in a few weeks.
After struggling with some deadlines our second single “Life According to a Pop Star / Fair Is Foul” has finally been released today. This time both songs are original compositions. We intend to include both songs in the forthcoming album.
The single is already available on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon and other download and streaming platforms. It can be previewed there as well as in the discography entry of our homepage. We have provided previews that are a bit longer than on most commercial platforms.
As usual a limited vinyl edition is available in our store. As we sent our mixdown files to a mastering facility the material fits the vinyl a lot better than last time. Thanks to Stefan Noltemeyer at www.mastering-online.com.
Also thank you to all who have so ambitously participated in our video initiative. We’re still working on the final video which will include everybody who set free their inner pop star and sent us a video of himself/herself singing or dancing along to “Life According to a Pop Star”. Also those who did … something else.
Here´s a first look at the full cover design for our new single LIFE ACCORDING TO A POP STAR featuring the B-side “Fair Is Foul”.
We´re expecting the arrival of the limited edition vinyl records from the pressing plant any day now. The official release will be in August if everything goes according to plan. In the meantime keep sending in your entries for the video that will accompany the release.
