    With her new album The Party Ain't Over, Elvis Presley protégé Wanda Jackson is gearing up for a big comeback: The rockabilly great scored an assist from Jack White, who produced the album for his Third Man Records label. One of the highlights is a cover of Bob Dylan's "Thunder on the Mountain," and the pair have just dropped a video for the tune. Check it out below. Jackson says the idea to cover the song came from the Bard himself. "Jack wanted me to do a Bob song," she told Spinner.

    EXCLUSIVE: New Sci-Fi Video from the Sword

    A redheaded sorceress! Spaceships! A damsel in distress! It's a true sci-fi storyline in "Lawless Lands," the new music video from Austin metal act, the Sword. The clip is the second in a video trilogy inspired by Warp Riders, the band's most recent record, a concept album based on an original sci-fi narrative. Watch below!In the video, the band members play intergalactic soldiers (albeit clad in, um, t-shirts and jeans) who cruise the cosmos in a spaceship, willing and able to do the bidding of their sexy female commander. As the ship navigates through asteroid fields and dodges meteors, the band performs "Lawless Lands," a chugging, gloomy cut that nods to Black Sabbath.The band then descends upon a foreign planet, emerging from their spacecraft and drawing -- shocker! -- swords in their attempt to rescue a young lady.

    WATCH: Kid Cudi's Rock'n'Roll Video ft. Kanye!

    On Kid Cudi's new album Man on the Moon 2: The Legend of Mr. Rager (out Oct. 26), the Cleveland rapper experiments with arena-filling rock sounds-and in his "Erase Me" video, featuring Kanye West, Cudi completes the process by transforming into a Jimi Hendrix-like rock star. Watch below! The clip, which dropped online Tuesday, is a tongue-in-cheek performance video reviving the pompous rock days of the late-1960s with the hip-hop duo dressing up and adopting alter egos. Cudi channels the "Purple Haze" guitar legend in an afro wig, head-band, and bell-bottoms, and shreds guitar onstage as glitter falls from overhead and pyrotechnics fire from cannons. West, who makes a short appearance to drop his verse, appears onstage wearing a black blazer, shades, and enough jewelry to make Mr. T pity himself. 'Ye even sports a crown of gold laurels.

    Love Vegas? Watch Brandon Flowers' Opulent Tribute

    On his debut solo album Flamingo, Brandon Flowers delivers glitzy, '80s-style synth pop heavy on themes that reflect his Las Vegas hometown. So it's no surprise that Flowers' new video for "Only the Young" (directed by Sophie Muller) is as glitzy and over-the-top as a Cirque du Soleil show, complete with floating acrobats, blazing fires, and laser lights. Meanwhile, Flowers, sporting a tuxedo straight out of Tom Jones' cedar chest, jerks and struts across the heavily-lit set, evoking David Byrne from the "Once in a Lifetime" video. Check it out below.

    The Avett Brothers are perpetually in the studio, writing and recording new music for the follow-up to their 2009 breakout album I and Love and You.

Watch an exclusive clip of "Murder in the City" below!The show -- an August 8, 2009 gig at the 9,000-capacity Bojangles Coliseum -- was, at the time, the band's biggest yet, and Scott Avett tells SPIN that his solo performance that night was "beautifully terrifying.""Playing in front of that many people -- you're just hoping you can get the room quiet enough to listen to what you're playing," he says. "And if you do grab them, what are you going to do? Stumble?"Avett certainly didn't.
