First Listen: Kylie Minogue’s Record Store Day 2014 Single ‘Golden Boy’ Hits The Internets

Her Single of the YEAR!
"Now I'm bangin' on your door"

In honor of Record Store Day 2014, Kylie Minogue has released a limited edition 7″ single for a new track titled Golden Boy. Unfortunately, the single is only available internationally but thanks to the glory of the Internets, we can hear the song in the embed above. The song, quite honestly, is the best single she’s released in a very long time. It’s a shame that this song is only being released in this limited format because it’s really a spectacular song. Have a listen, see what you think. Don’t you wish Golden Boy was included on her new album Kiss Me Once?

First Listen: Prince Releases A NEW Song Titled ‘The Breakdown’

It's a slow jam

In the wake of the surprising but very exciting news that Prince has signed a new contract with his old record label Warner Bros. Records to release a NEW album as well as a bunch of old, previously unreleased material from his treasure trove of recordings from the 80′s, Prince has unleashed upon the world a new single titled The Breakdown. As I understand it, Prince performed this song in concert last Fall but just before midnight last night he released it officially for sale on iTunes. Have a listen of this new Prince track below.

Watch: Lindsay Lohan Confirms That She Is Writing NEW MUSIC

But ... the music is not for her
"I'm writing ..."

Last night, Lindsay Lohan appeared on Bravo‘s late night talk show Watch What Happens Live to talk about various things, including her infamous sex list. In the after show portion of WWHL last night which was not broadcast on TV, the subject of Lindsay‘s reported new music came up. Back in December we learned that Lindsay has been hanging out in a recording studio and it appeared that she was hard at work on new music for a possible new album. Lindsay confirms in the clip above that yes, she has been writing new music but unfortunately it’s not for her … it’s for her sister Aliana.

WHICH MEANS that Ali is planning to unleash music of her own upon the world. Heaven help us all.

Here Are 15 Years Of Coachella Festival Posters

O(+>, Paul McCartney, Snoop Dogg, Madonna & MORE!

The second weekend of the 2014 edition of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival kicks off today and in honor of the music fest’s 15th year, I present to you all of the official posters that have been released listing all of the performers who have played Coachella since 1999. Back in the day, Coachella used to be a two-day festival but because of its growing popularity, it has since been expanded to a three-day festival … which is repeated over two different weekends. But, Coachella wasn’t successful from the get go. The first Coachella festival in 1999 did not make a profit … so it was cancelled in 2000. It resumed in 2001 and has been making LOADS of money ever since. Artists like Björk, The Cure, O(+> (aka Prince), Madonna, Oasis, Beastie Boys, Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode and The Killers have all headlined Coachella over its 15 year history. Click thru the gallery presented here to look back at all the acts that have played Coachella up to this weekend. Are any of you heading out to Indio, CA for weekend 2 of Coachella 2014? If so, have the best time ever!

First Look: One Direction Releases A Music Video For ‘You & I’

Power Ballad
You, I & 1D

Last month the members of One Direction shared a group selfie to prove to the world that they are NOT breaking up. Today, the further solidify their assertion that they are staying together as a musical unit with the much-anticipated release of the music video for their song You & I. 1D has been teasing this video for a few weeks now and finally, it’s out. The song is a slower ballad — which is only OK, IMHO — but the video is pretty neat. Have a look, have a listen, rejoice in the fact that 1D are still together and still going strong.

Spending My Maundy Thursday With †††

The TV Guide

Last night I made the trek down to Santa Ana, CA to see the band ††† live in concert and I am so glad I was able to make the trip. †††, or Crosses if you like, are a new band for me. I’ve heard some of their songs and was impressed by what I’ve heard about their live shows from friends in NYC so I decided to check them out in concert. They played The Roxy in West Hollywood on Wednesday night, which is much closer to me, but because I had tix to see The 1975 that night, I had to settle for the 50 minute drive to Santa Ana. ††† packed The Observatory to sold out capacity and it was clear to see why … they put on an amazing live show.

Prince Announces A New Album & A New Deal With Warner Bros. Records

Hoping for "a fruitful working relationship"

Prince has announced today that he is readying the release of a new album with his new band 3rd Eye Girl. He is also announcing that he has re-teamed with his former record label Warner Bros. Records for a new deal that will provide fans the opportunity to have access to “long-awaited, previously unheard music”. As you may know, Prince and WBR enjoyed a long, successful relationship from the late 70′s until the early 90′s … until things soured between the two. Prince was unhappy with his WB contract, WB wouldn’t release him from that contract and Prince changed his name to O(+> and started writing the word SLAVE on his face in an effort to break free from WB Records. Now, all these years later, Prince and WBR have apparently kissed and made up … and are ready to unleash both new and old music on the world. More »
