Big Beat and Atlantic Records have announced the release of “Nothing But Trouble,” the blockbuster new single from Lil Wayne & Charlie Puth. The track, which premiered via iHeartRadio, is available on the iTunes Store and all DSPs today, Tuesday, June 30th.
“Nothing But Trouble” marks the first single from Big Beat’s hugely anticipated soundtrack for 808, the landmark documentary chronicling the incredible story of the influential Roland TR-808 drum machine. The comprehensive soundtrack companion – slated to arrive later this year in conjunction with the film’s official release – gathers an array of era-spanning tracks born of and inspired by the 808, including 1982’s world-changing “Planet Rock” by Afrika Bambaataa & The Soulsonic Force, which will be accompanied by a brand-new remix package featuring interpretations by some of today’s brightest and most forward-thinking producers.
A You Know Films production in association with Atlantic Films, 808 – which features commentary and contributions from such superstars as Pharrell Williams, Afrika Bambaataa, Questlove, Damon Albarn, David Guetta, Phil Collins, Diplo, New Order, and Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim), as well as pioneering artists and producers including Rick Rubin, Jellybean Benitez, Hank Shocklee, and Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis – premiered earlier this year as part of SXSW® Film’s “24 Beats Per Second” series showcasing the sounds, culture, and influence of music and musicians.
808 is directed by Alexander Dunn and produced by Alex Noyer (also Executive Producer), Atlantic Records Chairman/CEO – and Big Beat Records founder – Craig Kallman, and Alexander Dunn. The film was produced and co-executive produced by Arthur Baker for Re-Covered Content Ltd. and written by Alexander Dunn and Luke Bainbridge. Legendary radio host Zane Lowe provides narration for all released editions of 808.
