    PREMIERE: Hot Korn Track feat. Skrillex

    Hot Los Angeles DJ Skrillex's set at this weekend's Coachella Festival is sure to be a bangin' dance party, and during his performance he'll be playing his new collabo with Korn, "Get Up." But you don't need a ticket to the Indio, CA, event to hear the track -- SPIN is premiering it here! "Get Up," tentatively due on a new Korn EP in May, is a skittering blitzkrieg of heavy electro beats and guitars. "I heard a few of Skrillex's re-mixes and really felt there would be a good chance that he would have the right sensibility to connect us to a new hard sound and direction, but still keeping Korn guitars and our vibe," frontman Jonathan Davis tells SPIN. "We were just thinking of trying something new, to be honest, so I had my manager reach out to the Skrillex camp.

    Amy Lee Talks Evanescence's Comeback LP

    The key word for goth-pop outfit Evanescence's long-awaited comeback album, due this fall, is a bit unexpected. It's not "angsty" or "ominous" or "heavy." "The record is fun" and that's a totally new thing for us," singer Amy Lee, 29, tells SPIN. "When I listen to our old music I see that's where I was in my life at that time. This has been a long trip and parts have been hard. But it's about not taking everything so seriously this time." Since starting out in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1995, the band has been defined by drama, both onstage and off. There was the messy departure of co-founding songwriter Ben Moody in 2003 and then the even messier firing of drummer Rocky Gray and guitarist John LeComp in 2007, leading to rumors that Lee was iron-fisted in her leadership of the band, which, by then, consisted almost entirely of newly-hired hands.

    Foo Fighters Channel Beatles in Two-Hour Set

    Tuesday night the Foo Fighters played an 111-minute set for Live on Letterman at New York's Ed Sullivan Theatre, honoring the Beatles by mimicking the look of the Fab Four's iconic debut U.S. performance in 1964 on the same stage. But this was no "I Want to Hold Your Hand." The Foos bashed out the 11 uranium-heavy tracks from their just-released album, Wasting Light, from opener "Bridge Burning" to closer "Walk," while visually aping the Beatles set: Black suits? Check. Retro bass drum art? Check. Filmed in back and white? Yep. Stage decked out with art deco designs circa 1964? You betcha. "I don't know how the Beatles did it 'cause these [suits] are hot," said frontman Dave Grohl, who in the early-90s played in an all-star Beatles cover band with members of Sonic Youth, Afghan Whigs, and Soul Asylum.

    My Morning Jacket Debut New LP's First Track!

    "We're going back to a similar vibe that we had on the first three records," bassist Tommy Blankenship recently told SPIN of My Morning Jacket's sixth album, Circuital, out May 31. "It's definitely more laid back than it's been in a while." And after months of laboring at a makeshift studio in a church outside their hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, Jim James and Co. have finally unveiled the first (and title) track from the LP. Guess what? It's a DeLorean ride at 88 mph back to the early '00s, when MMJ's five members had even longer hair and guitar riffs, and their sound was a moody, gothic mix of Southern rock and reverb-soaked indie. The seven-minute epic opens with a brooding riff then lifts into a fist-pumping anthem sure to get fans dancing at Bonnaroo this year.

    See Macauley Culkin in Adam Green's Comic Movie

    New York City singer-songwriter Adam Green charmed the pants off America with "Anyone Else but You," the so-cute-it-hurts theme song for Juno that he cowrote with Kimya Dawson, his partner in the Moldy Peaches; it helped rocket the film's platinum-selling soundtrack to No. 1 on the charts. But now he's moving behind the camera as the writer, director, and star of a new 70-minute movie, The Wrong Ferarri, which stars Macauley Culkin, along with an eccentric cast of actors and musicians.

    LISTEN: Ex-Pumpkin Jimmy Chamberlin's New Band

    "I want to be 'Jimmy Chamberlin, the drummer, the musician who's done many things,'" the 46-year-old rocker tells SPIN.com, "not just 'that guy from the Smashing Pumpkins.'" The Chicago native and alt-rock vet is working towards that end with Skysaw, his new band and first musical endeavor since exiting the reformed Pumpkins in 2009. Together with Washington DC-based singer Mike Reina and guitarist Anthony Pirog -- the writing team behind psychedelic rock outfit the Jackfields -- Skysaw will release their debut, Great Civilizations, in May on Dangerbird Records. Hear the psych-prog jam "Tightrope Situation," exclusively via SPIN.com. LISTEN: Skysaw, "Tightrope Situation" "After I left the Pumpkins, I went home and just sat around," Chamberlin explains.

    Watch Taylor Swift Cover Mumford & Sons!

    The Grammys are one thing, but it's safe to say a band has officially "made it big" when object-of-America's-affection-and-attention Taylor Swift covers one of their songs — so congratulations Mumford & Sons! You'll be the taste of tweens and their minivan-driving moms in no time! Swift performed the British folk outfit's "White Blank Page," off their breakout 2009 debut Sigh No More, for BBC's Radio 1 — and, musically, it's a perfect fit.

    Katy Perry Debuts Otherworldly Video ft. Kanye

    Katy Perry's career is built on the outrageous and epic -- have you seen the "California Gurls" clip or her husband Russell Brand? But her just-released video for "E.T.," from her 2010 blockbuster Teenage Dream, is just, well, out of this world. As directed by Floria Sigismondi (The Runaways), the clip has Kanye traveling the stars in a space craft while rapping about alien sex, probing, Prada space suits, Shrek, and drinking at a dive bar on Mars. Twirling in space, Perry transforms from a frail alien into a Queen Amidala-styled empress, who descends to a scorched earth and, with her magic touch, revives an on-the-brink-of-death robot and transforms him into a hot humanoid. "Your kiss is cosmic / You're from a different dimension," her auto-tuned voice soars over a pop-industrial beat and trace-y synths.
