So Kanye West premiered a new song tonight in a way that only Kanye West could. A large video of him performing the song was projected on 66 buildings across the world. Yes, you read that correctly. Kanye definitely lives in his own dimension. The song is a new one called "New Slaves" and it is supposed to appear on his new album, which is likely to come out in June. The first 3/4 of the song is pretty much Kanye, but the last part sees him break out a singing falsetto, which is not doing [...]

One of my favorite shows, The Office , ended last night. The finale was as perfect as I could have hoped. If you're a fan of the show and watched the finale last night, here's a little treat for you.

The Weeknd has a new album titled Kiss Land on the way later in the year. He just released a new song from the album. It's also titled "Kiss Land" and sits at 8-minutes, almost like his attempt at a "Pyramids." It's almost split up into a 2-part epic, taking a turn at the 2nd half. Lots of cool sounds and parts of them, even if they lyrics made me cringe a few times. Take a listen below.
Franz Ferdinand have finally announced a new album: Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action . That's the album art above. It will come out via Domino on August 27. It's mind boggling to think that this is their first album since 20092s Tonight. They spent the last year recording the album in frontman Alex Kapranos' Scottish Studio, and Nick McCarthy's Sausage Studios in London. Kapranos gave us this when asked for a quote: The Intellect Vs The Soul, played out by some dumb band. Awesome. [...]

The newest The Lonely Island , everyone's favorite comedy rap group is back with their new album The Wack Album on June 11 via Republic. Last week we heard and saw "Spring Break Anthem" , and today we get another new track. It's a weirdly creepy and very cringe-worthy track called "I Fucked My Aunt." It's pretty ridiculous on every level, but what else would you expect from The Lonely Island. Oh, and it features T-Pain. Of course it does.
Ty Segall must never sleep. The guy has announced yet another album, ironically titled Sleeper . It will come out via Drag City on August 20. This is a solo album, not one with his band.

The Dodos are back with a brand new album called Carrier . It's their first release with Polyvinyl , and will come out August 27. Today the duo have shared the album's first single, "Confidence." The trademark Dodos sound is there, if not a little bit heavier. This is due to the death of their guitarist Christopher Reimer. In a press release, Dodos singer/guitarist Meric Long said that “Chris was a huge influence on the way I think about guitar, songwriting, and music in general. Seeing how he could transform and shape sound with [...]
"Keep Your Eyes Peeled" is a new track from Queens Of The Stone Age's upcoming ...Like Clockwork , which comes out June 3 via Matador .

Shia LeBeouf has taken the directors chair for Future Unlimited's new music video for "Haunted Love." The gloomy song gets a dark and haunting video that taps right into the songs mind and soul.
