NBC’S TODAY SHOW TOMORROW,
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18
Accompanying Video Starring Vine Star
Brandon Bowen Premieres On Vevo This Week
Pre-Order For Debut LP Out Of Style
Launches September 18
Album Out October 30 On I.R.S. Nashville/Capitol Records
Marc Scibilia is currently on a North American tour opening for blues/hip-hop songstress ZZ Ward and he will stop to perform his infectious single “How Bad We Need Each Other” on NBC’s TODAY Show on Friday, September 18.
The accompanying video to the single premiered on Vevo and stars Vine “star” Brandon Bowen, and was directed by Julian Smith, a celebrated video creator and actor whose short comedic videos have made him a YouTube “celebrity” as well. Smith’s videos have amassed 400+ million views, and it was his longstanding friendship with Scibilia that lead him to this directorial role, as well as a cameo in this clip. Meanwhile, Bowen is featured as a cake-eating teen, a role true to form. And one that has earned him web celebrity status with more than three million followers to date.
After opening for James Bay and Zac Brown Band earlier this year, Scibilia will perform at venues such at Irving Plaza in NYC on September 18 and the El Rey in Los Angeles on October 16 while out with ZZ Ward.
Scibilia’s debut LP Out Of Style is due on October 30 (I.R.S. Nashville/Capitol Records). While the sounds and styles of the eleven songs on his span a broad spectrum-from singer-songwriter narratives to dance beats, drawing on folk, pop, and rock along the way-this hard-fought but positive spirit never wavers. Produced by critically acclaimed artist and hitmaker Butch Walker (Pink, Fall Out Boy, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban), and one of the first releases on the new I.R.S. Nashville imprint of Capitol Records, Scibilia’s LP marks the arrival of this unique new talent.
Scibilia recently stopped by the syndicated radio show Acoustic Café and played the single as well as other songs from his forthcoming release. The feature can be heard here.
