Right now we get to hear a new Prince song titled WHITECAPS that will be featured on his new band 3rd Eye Girl‘s album PlectrumElectrum. As you can hear below, Prince doesn’t sing the lead vocal on this track so it may not resonate with diehard Prince fans. Click below to hear WHITECAPS in full and see what you think. The song is distinctly Prince, even if he’s not the one singing. More »

'Katy Perry Uncensored Raw Talent'
Every musician’s journey is different, and it’s safe to say that a lot’s changed since 2001 for Katy Perry.

She’s young, she’s adorable, and she’s also hella talented. Check out the video to see what young Katy Perry was workin’ with!

Adam Levine enlists the aid of his fellow 'Voice' judge
Maroon 5‘s newest album V is out in stores now and as you can hear above, it features a song titled My Heart is Open … which features guest vocals by Gwen Stefani. Gwen, as you may know, is one of the new judge/coaches alongside Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine on The Voice so it makes sense that the two would collaborate on a song together to promote both the album and their TV show. PERSONALLY, I’m much more interested in new solo Gwen music but I’ll take what I can get (even tho this new Maroon 5 song sounds a lot like every other Maroon 5 song that I’ve ever heard). Have a listen to My Heart is Open above and see what you think.
The original 'Barbie Girl' and more!
So, it’s official. I want it to be 1998 again, forever. Like, if I were in Midnight in Paris, that’s the time I’d want to go back to, and I’d stay there and life would be happy. A few #ThrowbackThursdays ago we celebrated 1998 with The Nostalgia Machine. And today I’m feeling hella nostalgic, seeing as how my very first baby took it upon himself to turn 6 years old today. I always see those Now That’s What I Call Music commercials—we are up to Now That’s What I Call Music 51—and today I finally looked up the discography for the for the very first one (at least the first American version). It was released in 1998, which means we are headed back to my favorite year again today. Click inside for 6 (shouts out to my firstborn) of my favorite tracks for the first compilation!
Something to tide you over until his album is released next month
In early July we learned that the incomparable Ryan Adams will be releasing a new, self-titled solo album in September but today, I’ve got something for you fans too anxious to wait for the album to drop. Ryan has also released an EP of punk songs on 7″ vinyl that includes 10 songs that should tide us over until his full length album is released on September 9. Click the embed above to hear his new EP 1984 in full. It really is a great collection of songs. If this is what his EP sounds like, I can wait to hear what the full-length album sounds like.
