[NEWS- JOURNAL/FILE] ENTERTAINMENT EDITOR Jewell Tomazin, jtomazin@news-jrnl.co The Associated Press H e r e ' s a c o l l e c t i o n curated by The Associ- ated Press' entertainment j o u r n a l i s t s o f w h a t ' s arriving on streaming ser- vices and music platforms this week. MOVIES "Black Is King" Written, directed and executive produced by Beyoncé, the pop star's "visual album" arrived Friday on Disney+. Given that the last time Beyoncé made something similar she crafted the dazzling film "Lemonade," "Black I s K i n g " — l i k e m o s t things involving Beyoncé — is a major event. This one, a fantasia celebrat- ing black identity, comes a s a c o m p a n i o n p i e c e to last year's Beyoncé- curated album "The Lion King: The Gift." She has described it as "a story of how the people left most broken have an extraordi- nary gift and a purposeful future." " S t o c k t o n o n M y Mind" M a r k L e v i n ' s d o c u - mentary HBO charts the journey of Michael Tubbs, who became the youngest mayor of a major American city by the age of 26 and the first African-American mayor of his hometown, S t o c k t o n , C a l i f o r n i a . Tubbs has helped make the low-income work- i n g - c l a s s c o m m u n i t y in Central California an incubator for new ideas in combating institutional- ized racism, gun violence and economic hardship. "The Fight" Elyse Steinberg, Josh Kriegman and Eli Despres' documentary, honored for social impact filmmaking at this year's Sundance Film Festival, follows the work of the Ameri- can Civil Liberties Union during the presidency of Donald Trump. It's multi-front battle that, in this riveting account, encompasses conflicts over immigration, abor- tion and voting rights. As the directors showed in the excruciatingly entertain- ing 2016 Anthony Weiner documentary "Weiner," they have talent for col- o r f u l f l y - o n - t h e - w a l l filmmaking of politics in action. Here, they focus on four tireless ACLU attor- neys. Magnolia Pictures released "The Fight" on- demand Friday. — AP Film Writer Jake Coyle MUSIC "Blue Umbrella" That's what new friends are for: Musical icon Burt Bacharach and Kacey Mus- graves producer Daniel Tashian have teamed up to release a new five-song EP. "Blue Umbrella," out Friday, was recorded in Nashville and features Bacharach on piano and Tashian on vocals. Tashian has worked with a handful of country music acts, but he's best known for his magic on Musgraves' epic 2018 album "Golden Hour," which earned him his first pair of Grammys. Bacharach, a six-time Grammy winner and three- time Oscar winner, is one of music's most revered com- posers, known for tracks like "That's What Friends Are For," "(They Long to Be) Close to You" and "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)," among others. "Blue Umbrella" is Bacharach's first album in 15 years. "B7" R&B powerhouse Brandy is releasing her first inde- pendent album. "B7," her seventh studio release, was out Friday and is the Grammy winner's first album in eight years.
