When Shia LaBeouf emailed back in late October expressing interest in directing a short film based on the Future Unlimited single "Haunted Love", I thought it was, at first, a prank.

I was pleased to discover that the email was no prank, that the man at the other end was, in fact, [...]

Kind of out of left field, Joy Orbison released the track "Donell" yesterday & it's just managed to catch everyone's attention.
