SONGS Named Independent Publisher of the Year
SONGS Named Independent Publisher of the Year
On April 27, ASCAP celebrated the writers and publishers of the biggest songs in pop music. Representing eight of the most performed songs of 2015, SONGS Music Publishing was awarded Independent Publisher of the Year.

"All you writers in the room know that our songs are babies. We spend so much time raising them right, making them interesting, hoping they're going to survive once we kick them out of the house. You wouldn't trust just anyone with your music. I trust the people at SONGS Music Publishing with my music," Diplo said in his introductory remarks, "There's a reason they've got 'songs' right in their name. They were founded by music-makers, and they still care about music above all else."

Our eight honored songs:

"Can't Feel My Face" (The Weeknd)
"Earned It" (The Weeknd)
"The Hills" (The Weeknd)
"Lean On" (Diplo)
"Love Me Harder" (The Weeknd)
"Uma Thurman" (Young Wolf Hatchlings)
"Where Are Ü Now" (Diplo)
"Worth It" (Ori Kaplan)

Lorde Delivers Stirring David Bowie Tribute at the Brits
Lorde Delivers Stirring David Bowie Tribute at the Brits
This year's Brit Awards included an incredibly moving tribute to David Bowie, featuring Lorde singing "Life on Mars", accompanied by Bowie's long-time band members. Bowie once referred to Lorde as "the future of music", and it seems those close to him echoed his affections. Bowie's son, Duncan Jones, lauded the performance, tweeting, "Just... beautiful. Thank you." Longtime Bowie collaborator and producer Tony Visconti added, "A first class, respectful, sensitive, egoless tribute to dear David."
