And it's the best new song yet!
Thus far this year, Veruca Salt has released 2 new songs (HERE and HERE) from their new album Ghost Notes (due out next month) and today we get to hear the latest offering from the band’s new album. In the past year, the band has released 4 songs (the two from Ghost Notes and the Record Store Day single 2014 tracks Museum of Broken Relationships and It’s Holy) but after listening to the new song below, I must admit that Empty Bottle is their best new song yet. When I say that I have been aching for YEARS for the return of Veruca Salt, it is because when they work together on music they give us amazing songs like Empty Bottle. Slow and sweeping, then loud and powerful — Empty Bottle has it all. Have a listen below and fall in love. More »
"I dedicate this to My Love."
Last week we got our first taste of Janet Jackson‘s first new single in 7 years, a song titled No Sleeep that will lead the way for JJ‘s return to the music scene. The song will be released for sale at the stroke of midnight tonight but right now, we get to hear No Sleeep in full. As the snippet released last week suggests, this new song is a slower, mid-tempo song that sounds reminiscent of her 1993 single That’s The Way Love Goes. Janet has dedicated this song to “her love”, which of course is her husband Wissam Al Mana. Click the embed above to hear No Sleeep in full and see what you think about it. Janet is back.
"I just wanna look good for you, good for you, uh-huh"
For a few weeks now, Selena Gomez has been hinting that she would be releasing a new single, just in time for the summer music season. Today we get our first listen of Selena‘s new single, Good For You, which features a guest rap performance by A$AP Rocky. The song is a slower jam, which is nice, but as always, I was hoping for a more upbeat, poppier dance track. The song is OK but I can’t say that I’m really feeling it. The lyrical content, which is meant to be a sweet love song for her man, does’t really jibe with me. Click below to have a listen, read the lyrics and see what you think of Selena and A$AP Rocky‘s new song Good For You. More »
The song will be released in full on June 23
Oh. My. GODS. It’s here. Our first actual sampling of Janet Jackson‘s new single is here. According to the music blog Ultimate Music, Janet‘s new single is titled No Sleeep and it will be released in full next Tuesday, June 23. A 30 second sample of the song has made its way online and as you can hear below, it’s a slower midtempo ballad-type song that feels like it wants to amp up into the funkier dance pop range. Personally, I’ve been hoping for a club banger dancey single but this small taste of No Sleeep sounds just fine to me. Click below have a listen and get your first sampling of Janet‘s forthcoming new single No Sleeep. More »
While I’ve been distracted by the almost release of Madonna‘s (messy) music video for Bitch, I’m Madonna, Janet Jackson quietly released a short snippet of NEW MUSIC on her official Twitter profile. The song title isn’t revealed in the tweet below but this clip of music starts out with the lyric, “I lived through my mistakes / It’s just a part of growing“. Handwritten lyrics to the song are featured in the 43 second song clip, which you can watch below. It’s a slower song but I have a feeling it will be like the calm before the storm. Stop what you are doing RIGHT NOW and have a listen of this first new piece of Janet Jackson music in an ice age. Woot! More »

'We Belong Outside'
An industrious fan came up with the brilliant idea to mash-up a Taylor Swift song with a Calvin Harris song and as you can hear above, it’s a perfect match. The mash-up embedded here features vocals from Taylor‘s song You Belong With Me with music from Calvin‘s song Outside and is aptly titled You Belong Outside. It’s pretty amazing how well the two songs go together … kinda like Taylor and Calvin‘s ongoing romance. This is what it sounds like when Taylvin make beautiful music together. Enjoy.

Here's a taste
A snippet of a new Drake track has made its way to the Internets which reveals that he recorded the song with none other than Beyoncé herself.

Have a listen, get a taste and prepare yourselves for the hot track that is coming our way.
"We wanted to do a cover that was a bit under the radar"
Back in 2011, Ryan Gosling starred in a film titled Drive that, to this day, remains one of my fave movies of all time (in fact, I just rewatched Drive over the weekend, randomly) and gave us one of the more memorable soundtracks in recent years. The LA band Small Pools, who just released their debut album Lovetap! last month, decided to record and release a cover of the song A Real Hero by College & Electric Youth as featured on the Drive soundrack … which you can listen to in full below. A Real Hero is such a great song, it plays in heavy rotation in my running mix. Click below to hear Small Pools put their spin on this really great track. More »
From their debut album 'Communion'
Back in March, I fell in LOVE with a new British band called Years and Years and, have since, played the heck out of the songs the band has released on their debut EP. Today we get to hear a new song titled Shine that will be featured on Years and Years‘s debut album Communion, which will be released in July. Shine is an EXCELLENT example of why I love this band so much. Click the embed above to have a listen and fall in love yourselves.
