The much-anticipated new album from Shakey Graves, Movie of the Week, is out now.
Through the years, Alejandro Rose-Garcia (a.k.a. Shakey Graves) has always found innovative ways to engage his fan base. He continues to create unique experiences for fans with the release of Movie of the Week—this time unveiling an AI-generated website feature. Building the site was an intricate and complicated project that happily consumed his life for a few years, and the end result allows fans to create their own one-of-a-kind versions of the album, drawing from hundreds of alternate takes recorded over three separate week-long sessions.

Maren Morris released a two-track EP, The Bridge, which features two new tracks, “The Tree.” About The Bridge, Maren says, “THE BRIDGE; a connecting, transitional, or intermediate route or phase between two adjacent conditions.
These two songs are incredibly key to my next step because they express a very righteously angry and liberating phase of my life these last couple of years but also how my navigation is finally pointing towards the future, whatever that may be or sound like. Honoring where I’ve been and what I’ve achieved in country music, but also freely moving forward.
