The Hitlist: February 2024
Here’s our round-up of everything you need to do, read, watch and listen to this February 2024!
We made it through January! To celebrate, we’ve rounded up the best things to listen to, watch, read and do.
We, for one, are very excited that R’n’B king Usher is back! His new album, titled ‘Coming Home’ marks the creative return of Usher and L.A. Reid, who last worked together on his smash hit ‘Confessions’ album. Including collaborations with producers like Jermaine Dupri and The-Dream, and features from Summer Walker and 21 Savage, we predict this to be THE album of summer!
Donald Glover and Maya Erskine lead the cast of Prime Video's much-anticipated reimagining of action-comedy Mr & Mrs Smith, which premieres this month. Two lonely strangers land a job working for a mysterious spy agency that offers them a glorious life of espionage, wealth, world travels and a dream brownstone in Manhattan. The catch: new identities in an arranged marriage as Mr & Mrs John and Jane Smith. With the release date originally being pushed back to avoid industrial action by the Writers Guild of America and Screen Actors Guild, all eight episodes of the series will be available to binge right away on the 2nd February.
Margaret Atwood spoils us this February with a unique collaborative novel from a star-studded cast of writers. One week into lockdown, the tenants of a run-down apartment building in Manhattan have begun to gather on the rooftop each evening and tell stories. With each passing night, more and more neighbours gather, bringing chairs and milk crates and overturned pails. Gradually the tenants – some of whom have barely spoken to each other before now – become real neighbours. Each character is narrated by a different literary voice. Margaret Atwood, Celeste Ng, John Grisham, Dave Eggers, Tommy Orange, Louise Erdrich, and Neil Gaiman are just a few of the major authors of the day contributing to this unique work.
Politics, performance, photography, music and participation: Yoko Ono's artistic practice is diverse to say the least, and Tate Modern has reasoned it's time to look back over a career of nearly 70 years through over 200 works. Ono's overriding message of peace can be found throughout her works, and visitors have the chance to play on her all-white chess set, leave a photograph and a message on a long wall dedicated to mothers, or dedicate a wish for peace on her 'wish tree'.
