First Listen: Miley Cyrus Sings ‘A Day In The Life’ By The Beatles

"If ya love The Beatles and John Lennon you gonna love this!!!"

Last month we learned that Miley Cyrus teamed up with Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips to record a cover of the Beatles song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (while she was “high as f*ck”, mind you) and today we learn that she has recorded at least one other Beatles song, too. Coyne is working on a re-imagining of the Beatles album Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club band made up of cover recordings and it would appear that Miley is featured on at least two songs from that album.

First Listen: A Clip Of Tori Amos’s New Song ‘Promise’ Has Been Released

Featuring Tori's daughter Natashya Lórien

Tori Amos made a radio appearance on Radio Eins earlier today and at the end of her appearance, a clip of her new song Promise was played on air. Promise is one of the tracks included on Tori‘s forthcoming new album Unrepentant Geraldines and it features her daughter Natashya Lórien on guest vocals. We’ve previously heard Tash sing on Tori‘s albums Midwinter Graces and Night of Hunters, which came out a few years ago. As you can hear below, Tash‘s voice has matured considerably. The audio below is just a portion of the song but it does give us a pretty good feel for the song overall. Have a listen. More »

Watch: Katy Perry Releases A Lyric Video For ‘Birthday’

"We're living the life / We're doing it right"
'Birthday' Lurve

Katy Perry is ready to unleash her next single upon the world but before she drops the official music video for her song Birthday, she is letting us have it with the just-released lyric video for the track. As you can see in the video embedded above, this lyric video is a confectionary fan’s DREAM. Food porn has never looked so delicious. The song, eh, it’s only OK (it’s definitely no Dark Horse, that’s for sure) but this super fun lyric video does make the track more palatable. Ugh. Now I want a piece of cake. Thanks a lot, Katy.

Watch: Stevie Nicks Performs ‘Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around’ On ‘The Tonight Show’

With Jimmy Fallon as Tom Petty
Stevie Nicks and "Tom Petty"

The rock goddess Stevie Nicks made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night and she performed her classic hit song Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around, her duet with Tom Petty. Unfortunately, Petty couldn’t be on the show last night to perform the song with Stevie so Jimmy got all dolled up as Tom Petty to perform with her instead (which is something that he likes to do from time to time). Stevie sounded amazing … she always does but, ugh, we are so lucky to have her! Click the video above to watch Stevie and “Tom” perform Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around last night.

Watch: Kylie Minogue Releases A Lyric Video For Her New Single ‘I Was Gonna Cancel’

Go, Girl
The Second Single

Kylie Minogue has announced that the second single from her new album Kiss Me Once will be her song I Was Gonna Cancel, which was written by the amazing Pharrell. Personally, I am hoping that her song Les Sex will be released as a single but, for now, we get I Was Gonna Cancel. I like the song but I can’t say that I love it. The lyrics are odd for a single, I think. When I heard it on the album, I figured it would just be an album track but clearly, Kylie loves it enough to release it as an actual single. Click the video above to check out the lyric video for I Was Gonna Cancel. What say you, Kylie fans? Is this a single you can get behind?
