    Chris Cornell Joins Zac Brown Band For Heavy-Headed 'SNL' Performance

    The thunderous country-rockers and Foo Fighters collaborators in Zac Brown Band recently announced another album called Jekyll + Hyde for next month. As this week's Saturday Night Live guests, they had the opportunity to preview a couple of disparate tracks that seem to show off both sides of the Jekyll/Hyde divide, with help from another '90s rock icon.The first cut they performed on the Chris Hemsworth-hosted episode was titled "Homegrown," a relatively standard number for the country-rock crew with Brown himself toting an acoustic guitar. But things were a little different for the second number "Heavy Is the Head," presumably the "Hyde" segment of the evening, during which Soundgarden's Chris Cornell joined the band on guitar and vocals, while Brown donned a feather in his cap. You can check out that performance above, and "Homegrown" below. Jekyll + Hyde is out April 28.

  • Kanye West Premiered His 'All Day' Video During Paris Fashion Week

    Kanye West Premiered His 'All Day' Video During Paris Fashion Week

    After debuting his new Adidas line at this season's New York Fashion Week, Kanye West has been hanging out at this week's Paris iteration. As Complex reports, he's putting together performances over the next few nights for the Fondation Louis Vuitton, and tonight he kicked off the festivities with the international debut of his new video for "All Day." Though the full clip hasn't surfaced yet, and there's no word when it will drop, but shaky fan videos of the Steve McQueen-directed visual have started appearing on Twitter. It seems to feature, at least in part, Kanye furiously rapping his way through a desolate, grey building.

  • Real Estate Bring Lilting 'Atlas' Tracks to 'CBS This Morning'

    Real Estate Bring Lilting 'Atlas' Tracks to 'CBS This Morning'

    Since releasing Atlas, their latest winning collection of dizzy guitar pop, the boys in Real Estate have hit the road hard, making their way to all corners of the globe in support of that record. Based on today's episode of CBS This Morning it seems like they aren't quite done yet, bringing three of their lilting tracks from that record to the early a.m. news show. Their performance of "The Bend," "Had to Hear," and "Primitive," follows on a string of cool bookings on the show (and it's sister show CBS Sunday Morning), which has also hosted Jack White, Michael Stipe, Ryan Adams, and Conor Oberst recently. Check out the performances both above and below.

  • M.I.A. CanSeeCanDo Standalone Single Stream

    M.I.A. Returns With Rubbery, Romantic 'Can See Can Do'

    On Twitter this morning, M.I.A. returned from her post-Matangi slumber with news of a new track called "All My People," but she eventually decided that she'd rather release another track called "Can See Can Do," which hit Soundcloud shortly thereafter. As she dropped the brittle synth-banger, she told her "hardcore fans" to "hang in there, summer is coming," and the track is nothing if not a reminder of the warmer months to come. It's a surprisingly heartwarming single from the pop provocateur, featuring lyrics about looking to the past to build a better future. But this being Maya, she of course manages to get in a few bars about drones in the midst of the whole thing. And if you're not cool with that, well, she has a message for you on the song's Soundcloud description."NO MY BEATS ARE NOT BETTER WITHOUT MY POLITICX," she writes. Listen to the song in full below.

    Review: Björk's MoMA Retrospective Digs Deep, Despite Technological Glitches

    If any late-20th-century pop star was going to land her work in a hallowed institution of contemporary art, it was always going to be Björk. That came down the pipeline last year, when New York's Museum of Modern Art adopted Biophilia as the first mobile app in its collection. But shortly thereafter, MoMA announced that the boundary-pushing Icelandic artist would be doing something a little out of character in 2015: looking back.Yes, after several decades of moody, alienating, and auteurist art-pop, collaborations with controversial arthouse directors and famous fashion houses, and fascinatingly futuristic live productions, Björk has endeavored upon the curious enterprise of condensing her career to fit within the confines of a small museum exhibit.

  • Faith No More Superhero Sol Invictus Seven Inch Stream

    Faith No More Unleash Scummy Single 'Superhero'

    Faith No More's long-awaited reunion album Sol Invictus is set for a release on singer Mike Patton's Ipecac Records on May 19, but before that they'll return with another seven-inch teaser this month. Today, Ipecac has shared the A-side of that single, "Superhero," on their Youtube page. It's a strikingly scummy track, featuring the gritty slog of a distorted bassline and Patton's prodigious vocal range on full display as the band runs through its typically dramatic twists and turns. The track debuted, appropriately, on Marvel's website where Bill Gould says that the "pounding drums" and "throbbing pulse" of the instrumental lent the track it's world-saving atmosphere and title. You can listen below. 

  • Alabama Shakes Return To Saturday Night Live

    Alabama Shakes 'Don't Wanna Fight' On Their 'SNL' Return

    Lorne Michaels and the rest of the Saturday Night Live crew took a well deserved break last week after their big 40th anniversary shindig, but they were back in full force with an episode hosted by 50 Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson and featuring return musical guests Alabama Shakes. The roots-rockers have a new album called Sound & Color out in April and they performed a couple of ripping numbers from that LP Saturday night. You can catch "Don't Wanna Fight" up above and "Gimme All Your Love" down below, one of which features Johnson sporting an Unknown Pleasures t-shirt. The episode also spoofed Kanye's recent apology to Beck and Bruno Mars, by having Jay Pharaoh rap an apology during Weekend Update. That's below as well.

  • Kanye New Album So Help Me God

    Kanye West Titles Upcoming Album 'So Help Me God'

    Kanye West said in an interview about a week ago that when his nearly completed will come out when you're least expecting it. Fitting then, that the Yeezus architect took to Twitter in the middle of the night to finally announce its title So Help Me God. Soon after midnight last night he tweeted the title alongside, as Consequence of Sound uncovered, a symbol for the Virgin Mary from the middle ages. You can check it out below.No word on what that means yet, but if you want a hint about what this new record is going to sound like, check out any number of the man's recent live TV performances of "All Day," "Wolves," and "Only One." You can actually catch a new performance of that latter song down below.

    Björk's New Album Isn't On Spotify Because of "Respect For The Craft"

    The way that Björk handled the exceedingly early leak of her most recent LP Vulnicura, by rushing it out on iTunes, suggests that the singer/producer is at least somewhat comfortable with the way today's digital music economy works. But still, you may have noticed that the record hasn't yet appeared on Spotify or other streaming services, and based on comments in an interview with Fast Company, it seems it won't be showing up in those usual places anytime soon either.After suggesting that her and her team were "making [the album release up as it goes" along, she said that she's hesitant to engage with these services because "it just doesn't feel right.""I don’t know why, but it just seems insane,'" She continued. "To work on something for two or three years and then just, 'Oh, here it is for free.' It's not about the money; it’s about respect, you know?
