Plus, NIN Announces The New Album Title and Tourdates
So, we were TOLD that Nine Inch Nails would be releasing their new single Came Back Haunted at 11 AM PT on Thursday June 6 and technically, I guess that’s true … the single will be made available for sale at that time. BUT, in fine sneaky Trent Reznor style, the new NIN song debuted on the radio and online late Wednesday night for our listening pleasure. In addition to the actual single release, NIN has also announced the title and release date of their new album AND the tourdates for the upcoming North American tour have also been released. Click below to hear the new NIN song in full and then read up on when the album and tour tickets will go on sale. More »

On Monday night I got to see singer/songwriter Lenka perform an acoustic concert and last night I was able to see her perform a second concert, this time with a full band. As I mentioned before, Lenka is one of my new fave performers so I was really happy to see her perform two different shows over two different nights in celebration of her new album Shadows which was released yesterday. Last night I managed to record some video to share with all y’all so you can have a taste of just how great Lenka is live. Click below to see a few photos and watch a few videos from last night’s performance. More »
"We will stand and together we will rise"
Back in March we got our first look at the animated character that is voiced by Beyoncé in the new film Epic. Because Bey is a featured character in the film, it makes total sense that she would contribute a song to the film’s soundtrack. As I understand it, Beyoncé has not been performing this new song, titled Rise Up, live in concert on her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour but if you click below, you can hear the studio version of the track in full. Take a listen, won’t you? More »
"They throwin' hate at me"
Last month Kanye West debuted his new song New Slaves live during his appearance as musical guest on the season finale of Saturday Night Live and even tho Kanye is taking great pains to keep his new music from leaking online before it is officially released on June 18, a clip of New Slaves has, in fact, leaked its way online. A 72 second clip of the studio version of New Slaves has made its way to the Internets … which you can listen to below (before it gets yanked offline). Be warned, the clip of music below contains strong NSFW language. More »

A studio update from our dear Britney
Back in January, Britney Spears tweeted the news that she was recording a song for “her boys”. At the time we weren’t exactly sure what she was referring to but a few months later we eventually learned that Britney was referring to her new song Ooh La La, a track she recorded for The Smurfs 2 soundtrack (and, naturally, for her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James who are, apparently, fans of the new Smurfs movie). Yesterday afternoon, Britney posted a new tweet on her official Twitter profile letting us that she is recording a new song for “all her boys”. HMMM. Who do you suppose she is referring to this time? Read on and let’s take a look. More »

Kickstarter My Heart
For the past 10 years, Detroit filmmakers James R. Petix and Sarah Biblia have been working tireless on a new music documentary about the Detroit garage rock scene titled It Came From Detroit and at long last the film is ready for release. Starting today, YOU can make a donation on the film’s Kickstarter page to help get the documentary into production. The filmmakers themselves can better explain the documentary than I ever can but in a nutshell, it’s an exciting inside look at the Detroit music scene that has given birth to bands like White Stripes, Von Bondies, The Detroit Cobras, Gore Gore Girls and many, many more. I think it’s no secret that Detroit and it’s thriving and exciting music scene is very near and dear to my heart so I’m really hoping to do all that I can to help get this film into the hands of fans. Click below to learn more about It Came From Detroit and learn how YOU can help get the film released. More »
