First Look: Lana Del Rey Releases A Music Video For ‘Ultraviolence’

Title Track
Here comes the Bride

Lana Del Rey has released another of her trademark music videos, this time for the title track of her new album Ultraviolence. Despite the fact that LDR tends to say ridiculous things in interviews (likely, for attention), she does manage to consistently put out music videos that keep her 100% on brand. In this new video, Lana plays a bride bathed in grainy black & white who looks forlorn and heartsick. Click the embed above and have a look. I love this song, I don’t mind the video. More of this and less interviews, LDR. For both our sakes, please.

Her debut solo album 'Crush Songs' is on the way
Just One Yeah

Karen O, the frontwoman for the band Yeah Yeah Yeahs, announced last month that she would be releasing her first solo album later this year. Today we get our first look and listen of her debut solo single Rapt. Rapt is the first song released from her new album Crush Songs, which will be released on September 9. As you can see above, the video is a nice compliment to the sparse acoustic track. I love Karen O. I’ve been waiting for her to release a solo album for years now, so this is very welcome news for me. Check out the video and prepare yourselves for what will undoubtedly be an amazing album to come.

Watch: Hilary Duff Releases A Music Video For ‘Chasing The Sun’

The Cutest
Life's A Beach for Hil. D

We got to hear Hilary Duff‘s NEW single Chasing the Sun yesterday and today, we get to see the just-released music video. In the clip embedded above, we see Hilary acting out a scenario where she is an overworked woman suffering in a bland office environment dreaming of the lazy summer days at the beach. It’s not the most unique of music video treatments but it is a cute video overall. I’m digging the song, the video is adorable … Hilary Duff is BACK, y’all.

First Listen: Jessie J, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj Team Up For A New Song Titled ‘Bang Bang’

Jessie, Ari, Nicki

Jessie J officially released her new single Bang Bang which features guest vocals buy fellow pop stars Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. It would appear that Iggy Azalea‘s very successful collab with Ariana, Problem, was a huge inspiration for this new song … in that, I’m guessing Jessie is hoping to enjoy the same success. Bang Bang will be featured on Jessie J‘s upcoming new album as well as the deluxe version of Ariana‘s album My Everything. Click the embed above to hear this new track from these ladies and see what you think. Are you a fan?

Tori Amos By The Bay

The TV Guide

Last night my friend Sarah and I made our way down to San Diego, CA to see our second of four Tori Amos concerts on her current Unrepentant Geraldines Tour and SURPRISE! We had the Best Time Ever … at the show. Our trip got off to a bummer start when Adriana had to drop out of taking the trip with us because of car troubles. Then we dealt with ONLY the worst traffic ever both on the way down and on the way home … but in between all of that drama, we enjoyed one of the best Tori Amos shows ever. Tori played for Sarah and me our favorite song together, Tear In Your Hand. The whole setlist was crafted to make every single person in the audience cry their eyes out so … yeah, it was the best.
