    Lady Gaga Previews 'Born This Way' With Remix

    Lady Gaga won't drop the first single from her highly anticipated May release Born This Way until February 13, but the pop star offered a sneak peek of what's to come with an untitled remix of one of the album's tracks. Check it out below. Gaga's remix (and accompanying video) debuted during yesterday's Paris runway show for her personal stylist Nicola Formichetti. It kicks off as a mild homage to '90s house music - all thudding beats, robotic vocal samples, and Gaga doing her best "Vogue" impersonation by chanting in what appears to be German. It's pretty tame stuff for Gaga, but she cranks up the heat midway through when the song erupts into a hard-charging, club-ready anthem. What do you think of Lady Gaga's remix? Sound off below.

    Coldplay Recording Concept Album with Brian Eno

    For 2008's double platinum Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends, Coldplay hired producer Brian Eno for the sessions. Now the group is teaming up with the studio whiz again for their next record - and it's a concept album, to boot. "It's from the point of view of two people who are a bit lost," frontman Chris Martin told the BBC of the album's storyline. "Two like-minded outsiders who meet in a very difficult environment and therefore have a journey together." As for the sonic direction of the album, Martin said they're putting Eno (along with Viva co-producer Marcus Dravs) in charge of orchestrating the soundscapes, although Martin will still be in charge of writing the basic ideas for songs. "Brian is the sower of seeds and ideas and experimenting, which is very liberating," says Martin.

He also discusses his influences (everything from Duke Ellington to Sheryl Crow), the sound of the new album, which, he says, is full of power-pop grooves, and the LP's title, Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes. "When you read a kid a nursery rhyme it calms them and soothes them. It makes them happy.

    Trent Reznor Preps 'Pretty Hate Machine' Reissue

    After cutting new music for the soundtrack to The Social Network and forming a new band How to Destroy Angels, Trent Reznor is ready to focus on the past. The Nine Inch Nails frontman has announced plans to reissue the band's first record, Pretty Hate Machine, on November 22. The release will include a cover of Queen's "Get Down, Make Love," which originally appeared as a B-side to the 1990 "Sin" single, plus remastered tracks overseen by Reznor and engineer Tom Baker. It's been an interesting trip watching the fate of this record float from one set of hands to another (a long and depressing story) but it's finally wound up in friendly territory, allowing us to polish it up a bit and present it to you now," Reznor wrote in a post on NIN's site.

    U2 Prep New Album For Early 2011

    After releasing 2009's No Line on the Horizon and writing the music for Broadway's Spider-Man musical, U2 are prepping a new album to be released next year. "I would expect a new U2 album sooner than anybody thinks," the band's manager Paul McGuinness told the Irish Times. "I would guess early 2011 before the next leg of the American tour which starts in May." U2 began work on the record — tentatively titled Songs of Ascent — back around the time they recorded Horizon and the band have been debuting many of these new tracks on their current U2 360° Tour. Among the new songs: "Mercy," "Every Breaking Wave," and "Boys Fall From the Sky," which you can watch below. As SPIN previously reported, U2 had to reschedule the North American leg of their tour due to Bono's emergency back surgery.

    WATCH: Eminem Opens Up About Drug Addiction

    Last night, 60 Minutes aired a rare interview with Eminem, where the MC opened up about getting beat up as a kid, how rap music saved his life and his struggles to be accepted as a white rapper in his Detroit hometown. But Eminem's most revealing moment came when he talked about his addiction to vicodin, valium, and ambien, an addiction so strong that it once caused him to overdose and almost suffer organ failure. "[Doctors] said if I got to the hospital two hours later, that would've been it," Eminem says about a near-fatal trip to the ER. Eminem's interview wasn't all tabloid fodder, however. The rapper talked about the art of writing rhymes, going through boxes of scribbled down lyrics he's written over the years. Turns out there is a word in the English language that rhymes with "orange," as Eminem demonstrates.
