Yovie & Nuno to release final single with Yovie Widianto on Friday

Yovie & Nuno is releasing its last single with founder-musician Yovie Widianto on
Feb. 8.

The track ,“Demi Hati” (for the heart), can be pre-saved on Spotify for the first-
time users once they have signed up and filled out a form.

The band will perform with Yovie for the last time during the Love Festival Vol.
3 on Feb. 8 at the Jakarta Convention Center (JCC) in Central Jakarta.

This does not mean that Yovie is exiting the band, as he announced last
November on his planned transition. “I’m not [leaving], but my position will
change into being the ‘captain’ behind the scenes and the producer of this band,”
he posted on his Instagram page.

Yovie & Nuno also posted a message recently on its official Instagram account:
“It’s certainly heartbreaking, but we’re
not galau [sad] #TerimaKasihMasYovie (thank you Yovie)."

Known for the wildly popular love songs he had written for Kahitna and solo
singers since the early 1990s, Yovie founded Yovie & Nuno in 2001 as a new
project. The band has released a number of popular hits, dominated primarily by
love songs.

The band’s 2010 album, Winning 11, was awarded Best Pop Album at the
2011 Anugerah Musik Indonesia (AMI) Awards and its 2007 album The Special
One was named Best of the Best Album at the 2009 AMI Awards. (wir/wng)
Ex-Nirvana manager releasing book remembering Kurt Cobain

The former manager of Nirvana is marking the 25th anniversary of the death of
Kurt Cobain with a book honoring the late singer and drawing on memories,
archives and interviews with those who were close to Cobain.

Serving the Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain is written by Danny Goldberg,


who became Nirvana’s manager in 1991, when the band was earning critical
acclaim coming up from the Seattle underground music scene.

Goldberg worked with Cobain in particular from 1990 to 1994 — formative years
that included the huge success of the album Nevermind, which turned the band
into a household name; Cobain’s meeting and marriage to Courtney Love, and
the birth of their daughter; and his public struggles with addiction.

In Serving the Servant, Goldberg draws on his own memories of Cobain as well
as files that have never before been made public, plus interviews with Cobain’s
close family, friends and former bandmates.

Advance praise for the book comes from such music luminaries as Sonic Youth’s
Thurston Moore, who calls it “insightful, passionate and cleareyed,” and Joan
Jett, who reviews “any music fan should want this book. Any Nirvana fan must
have this book.”

Serving the Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain will be released on April 2 —


three days before the 25th anniversary of Cobain’s death on April 5, 1994.
