Wolf Parade - Julia Take Your Man Home

Wolf Parade is no stranger to the music industry. The Canadian indie rock band formed back in 2003 in Montreal, Quebec. They released 3 full-length studio albums before taking a 5-year hiatus in 2011, then returning in 2016 with Cry, Cry, Cry. Their newest release, The Mind, dropped last year. The group has received critical acclaim and has an international following.

Off that album they bring us Julia Take Your Man Home, a single and new video animated by Chad VanGaalen. Filled with fast moving, colour animation that is quite often moving to the beat of the song, the video definitely keeps you wondering “what will happen next?” It follows what is seemingly a drunk man - presumably Julia’s boyfriend, as he makes a fool of himself (and Julia) at the bar. The visuals give off a drunk brain type of vibe, where nothing fully makes sense unless you’re living it. 

Video animator and director (and recording artist) VanGaalen has been nominated for the Prism Prize on many occasions, and he won in 2015 for helming the video for Beat the Drum Slowly by psych folk outfit Timber Timbre.

Alicia Keys and Jay-Z to Perform ‘Empire State of Mind’ on 2024 Tony Awards

The song always packs a special jolt of excitement when performed in New York City.

It was too perfect an opportunity to pass up: Alicia Keys and Jay-Z will perform “Empire State of Mind” during the 77th Annual Tony Awards on Sunday, June 16. The show is set to air live on both coasts from the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City (8:00-11:00 p.m. ET/5:00-8:00 p.m. live PT) on CBS, and to stream on Paramount+ in the U.S.

“Empire State of Mind” is featured in Hell’s Kitchen, the musical based on Keys’ early life and music which is nominated for 13 Tony Awards. That put it in a tie with the play Stereophonic as this year’s most-nominated production.
