A certain nervous tension arose when young New Zealand pop visionary Lorde announced that her new album Melodrama would be entirely co-produced by Jack Antonoff — not because he lacks talent but because his talents are so distinct. Antonoff, a proud native of New Jersey and a very public nervous wreck, spent a decade paying his dues fronting the post-Springsteen emo band Steel Train before coming to prominence in 2012.
Legendary hip-hop duo Eric B. & Rakim are getting back together for “one night only” on the 30th anniversary of their 1987 classic Paid In Full. According to Brooklyn Vegan, the show is going down at Harlem’s legendary Apollo Theatre on 7/7, exactly 30 years since the album’s release. Although Rakim toured last year performing the entire Paid In Full album solo, he hasn’t appeared on stage alongside his trusty DJ Eric B. in more than 20 years.
St. Vincent just announced her Fear The Future Tour for this fall, which means we’ll probably get to hear the new album she’s been working on with Jack Antonoff before too long. And if to a tweet from Universal Music Poland is to be believed, we’ll be hearing the project’s lead single next week. UMG Polska indicates that Annie Clark is releasing her new song “New York” next Friday, 6/30.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
