    Dead Weather Release "Triple Decker" Single

    Since opening up shop in Nashville with his own label Third Man Records, Jack White has released plenty of unconventional albums, including glow in the dark singles, limited edition colored-wax LPs - even peach-scented records. But the Dead Weather frontman has just announced his most unconventional release yet: a "Triple Decker" record for the band's "Blue Blood Blues," from their latest album Sea of Cowards. (Check out an exclusive live version of the song here.) The single, out this week, will be pressed as two separate 12 inch-ers with an additional 7" single (containing a previously unreleased Dead Weather track) housed inside. "It might require a Swiss Army Knife or screw driver [to open]," White says in a clip where he explains the technology, which he's trademarked!

    Kanye West Preps Noir 'Runaway' Movie

    At the VMAs on Sunday, Kanye West debuted the banging new song "Runaway" from his new album slated for November 16 and he also unveiled a trailer from a movie that will accompany the track. Turns out West's plans for the film are more epic than expected: last night, West announced that he's planning a 40-minute "noir piece" to accompany the album. "It's the story of a phoenix fallen to Earth, and I make her my girlfriend, and people discriminate against her and eventually she has to burn herself alive and go back to her world," West, who shot the movie in Prague recently, told New York magazine. Check out the teaser for the movie here. West has ignited plenty of controversy in recent years — most notably when he rushed Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech at last year's VMAs — and he's tried to mend his bad behavior, which he says is a major theme on the new record.

    Chromeo Team Up With Vampire Weekend

    Synth-pop duo Chromeo have tackled Vampire Weekend's music before, remixing "The Kids Don't Stand a Chance" from the band's 2008 debut, but Chromeo's Dave 1 and P-Thugg haven't properly collaborated with the preppy crew - until now. On the iTunes special edition of their just-released album Business Casual, the duo team up with VW frontman Ezra Koenig for a poppy jam that sounds like a long-lost Hall and Oates. (That influence makes sense: Chromeo teamed up with Daryl Hall for an episode of his web show Live From Daryl's House in 2008.) Stream the song below or buy it at iTunes now! "It goes into serious yacht rock [terrain] with the harmonies," Dave 1 tells SPIN of working with Koenig. "That dude, he's one of my really good friends and he's a serious singer.

    Slipknot Concert Doc Hits Theaters

    On September 28, Slipknot will release the concert DVD (sic)nesses, which documents a 2009 performance at England's Download Festival for 80,000 diehards. But fans who can't hold out for two weeks can check out the movie in theaters in major cities across the country (and in London!) on September 22. Check out a full listing of locations here and watch the explosive trailer for the movie below. (Sic)nesses captures one of the final performances of founding member Paul Gray, who was found dead from an accidental overdose in an Iowa hotel room on May 25. The band has not performed live since his untimely passing so this movie offers a rare chance to relive the band's awesomely chaotic live shows. While the future of Slipknot remains uncertain, Corey Taylor is focusing on his other band Stone Sour.

    Watch Florence's Moody New 'Twilight' Video

    Fresh off delivering one of the best performances of the VMAs last night - plus picking up an award for Best Art Direction for the video to "Dog Days Are Over" - Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine has unveiled a new clip for her song "Heavy in Your Arms." Welch filmed the clip to promote her contribution to the Twilight Saga: Eclipse soundtrack, but there's no trace of Bella or Edward here. Instead, "Heavy in Your Arms" is an awesomely gritty black-and-white video, mixing lo-fi Blair With Project-style production with elaborate, Victorian-era costumes that are straight out of a Kate Bush video. Plus: Florence gets dragged around the forest floor by some mysterious dude in a black suit. Sweet! Check out the moody gothic awesomeness below. WATCH: Florence and the Machine, "Heavy in Your Arms"

    Lady Gaga Rules 2010 MTV VMAs

    Lady Gaga was last night's big winner at the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles, taking home eight moon men statues, including Video of the Year and Best Female Video for "Bad Romance." Gaga was up for a record 13 nominations for two videos - the other was for her epic Beyoncé collaboration "Telephone" - and while Gaga didn't earn a total sweep, she appeared visibly moved with each trophy scored, especially when surprise presenter Cher handed off the award for Video of the Year. "Thank you so much!" said Gaga, who was visibly holding back tears.

    Hear New Song from U2's 'Spider-Man' Musical

    Bono and the Edge's Spider-Man musical won't hit Broadway until December but the U2 members offered a better glimpse of their new material this morning on Good Morning America. Castmember Reeve Carney-who plays Peter Parker in the musical-performed "Boy Falls from the Sky" with his band. Not surprisingly, the song sounds like trademark U2-chiming guitar riffs, arena-rock drums, a quiet verse that escalates into a bombastic chorus-although Carney, who sings in a raspy tenor, doesn't quite match Bono's high, soaring voice. (Check out the performance here.) U2's work on the play, which is directed by The Lion King's Julie Taymor, has hit plenty of roadblocks since they announced the project in 2007. Spider-Man reportedly cost a whopping $50 million to make.

    Hear Jay-Z's Newest Signing, Will Smith's Daughter

    Since forming his music company Roc nation in 2008, Jay-Z has built up a diverse stable of artists, from Kosovo-born singer Rita Ora to British dance-pop duo the Ting Tings and rapper J. Cole. But the hip-hop impresario has revealed his most surprising signing yet: nine-year-old Willow Smith, daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett. Jay-Z and Willow called into to Ryan Seacrest's radio show on Thursday to confirm the news, two days after her debut single "Whip My Hair" leaked online. Jay expects big things from his new artist, going so far as to make a loose comparison to Michael Jackson.
