    Hear Led Zeppelin's Shimmering Alternate Mix of 'The Rain Song'

    While singer Robert Plant continues to chunk out solo albums and make impromptu doo-wop with Jimmy Fallon, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has presumably been hunkered down in the studio working on the band's string of deluxe remasters and reissues that they've put out over the course of this year. Houses of the Holy and Led Zeppelin IV will make up the latest installment of that series when they hit stores next month, but thanks to Pitchfork, you can hear an alternate mix for "The Rain Song" right now.Page says that the new mix, from the set's companion disc, "is really a good blend of everything that’s actually being played." True to his word, this version excises piano in favor of foregrounding the original's shimmering guitar work and roaring vocal take. You can stream this new take over at Pitchfork, or catch it in context when these reissues hit stores on October 27.

    Young Thug and Birdman Go Sinister and Surreal for 'Danny Glover' Video

    Thanks in part to a spitfire Nicki Minaj remix, Young Thug's "Danny Glover" has become one of the Atlanta weirdo's breakout hits. But for the video for the original track, a single he released late last year, Thugger Thugger decided to enlist the "Anaconda" rapper's Young Money boss Birdman. Though Birdman's cameo naturally revolves around collecting some cash, the rest of the clip is pretty sinister and surreal featuring the "Stoner" singer rapping his way through a hallway of disembodied arms straight out of Kanye West's "Monster" video (or Roman Polanski's Repulsion before that." Watch the Be El Be-directed clip above.

  • Aaliyah Alexandra Shipp Lifetime Biopic Trailer

    Alexandra Shipp Is an Uncanny Aaliyah in Lifetime Biopic Trailer

    It seemed for a while there that the forthcoming Lifetime biopic about the life and career of groundbreaking R&B singer Aaliyah might not ever even happen. But despite all of the production drama, over the weekend the network shared the first trailer for the film, which features former Nickelodeon star Alexandra Shipp in character as the titular Princess of R&B. There's no hint yet of her vocal talents, but Shipp has the look pretty much nailed down, and the brief choreography that we get over the course of the trailer's 15 seconds are also pretty uncanny. Though Shipp only joined the production in July, they've at least been able to put together a brief bit of competent tribute. You'll be able to see the whole thing on November 15, but for now you can catch the trailer above.

  • Jay Z Beyonce No Doubt Sting Message in a Bottle Global Citizen Video

    Jay Z Brings Out Beyonce and Sting Joins No Doubt at Global Citizen Festival

    Global Citizen Festival, the Global Poverty Project's annual music fest, went down in New York City's Central Park on Saturday. After a star-studded bill including Alicia Keys, the Roots, Tiësto, and fun., the evening was headlined by No Doubt and Jay Z, each of whom brought out a surprise guest. Hova, still apparently in the headspace of the "On the Run" tour, enlisted Beyoncé for a couple of swooning renditions of "Holy Grail" and "Young Forever." The Gwen Stefani-led crew, however, brought out a guest that was a hair more surprising. For their encore performance of the Police's "Message in a Bottle," none other than Sting himself took to the stage to sing his famous bars (and reprise his guest slot at the band's 2003 Super Bowl performance). All in all it looks like it was a pretty special evening for those that landed tickets.

    Watch Ariana Grande and the Weeknd Get Sultry on 'Saturday Night Live'

    Despite promotional tension between host Chris Pratt and musical guest Ariana Grande, the first episode of Saturday Night Live's 40th season went off mostly without a hitch. In addition to skits showing off all of the new cast members and showcasing the endearingly awkward talents of the Guardians of the Galaxy star, Grande came through for a couple of stellar performances that showed off her incredible vocal chops.On a stripped down version of her inescapable "Break Free," Grande used little more than a piano to demonstrate that there's a whole lot more emotional weight to the track than just its Zedd-produced instrumental and kooky video.

  • Charli XCX Sucker Debut Live Video

    Charli XCX Previewed 'Sucker' With Six Unreleased Songs in Orlando

    Despite the fact that the release of her third studio album Sucker was just recently pushed back to December, warped pop wonder Charli XCX decided to use the first date of her fall tour to debut a whole host of songs from that forthcoming record. According to Stereogum, at a venue called The Social in Orlando, Florida, the True Romance singer performed six new tracks—called "Sucker," "Famous," "Caught In The Middle," "I Need Your Love," "Money," and "Gold Coins"—that could all see release come the winter months, and you can watch the debuts of two of those tracks above and below. Both hew pretty closely to the neon-tinted synth-pop that she's explored over the course of her career, while giving the extra emotive push that has placed recent singles like "Boom Clap" and "Break the Rules" among her best work to date. Watch the rendition record's title track above and "Famous" below.

    While Robert Plant and his new band the Sensational Space Shifters were in New York City kicking off a fall tour, the classic rock icon stopped in on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon for a brief chat and a couple of performances from his recent solo album Lullaby and . . . The Ceaseless Roar.

  • Ariana Grande Chris Pratt Saturday Night Live Promo Video

    Ariana Grande and Chris Pratt Spar in an Awkward 'Saturday Night Live' Promo

    Current pop culture darlings Ariana Grande and Chris Pratt are set to ring in this year's iteration of Saturday Night Live on music and hosting duties respectively, but in the season's first promo videos, things seem a little more tense than you might expect. Though its all surely in good spirits, in the first clip released the "Break Free" singer rebuffs a compliment from the Guardian of the Galaxy star by noting that his work makes her "um...tired." In the second and more unbelievable of the two clips, Pratt asks that Grande translate the promo "for our Spanish viewers." When she helpfully informs him that she's actually of Italian descent, he quickly changes gears and asks "do you want to...pizza?" It's all just about as awkward as it sounds, and the feigned animosity could portend an exciting episode of the show, which kicks of this Saturday, September 27.

    Taylor Swift Invited a Bunch of Fans Over to Her House to Listen to Her Album

    Instead of taking her new album and forcibly putting it into your house, Taylor Swift has taken the opposite tactic and opened up her Los Angeles home to interested listeners. Over the weekend, the "Shake It Off" singer showed off 1989 for a few devoted fans, but it wasn't just a typical album listening party. According to MTV, as well as a slew of Polaroids posted to Twitter, Swift invited a slew of superfans over for a five-hour celebration of the new record.There were cookies and dancing and cats and polaroids, just about everything you might expect from an afternoon at the Swift residence. Check out all the pictures below, and as a bonus, catch a video of her cat Meredith Grey, whom all these people presumably got to hang out with.I MET TAYLOR SWIFT AT HER HOME IN L.A.
