The long wait for new material from Neil Young & Horse is finally over. The band has released their latest tune Walk Like a Giant.
A new video for the song has also been released, which followed the tradition that began with their Americana album that featured vintage clips. No band member appeared on the music video, which featured Kaleidoscope-type images instead.
Walk Like a Giant runs for over 16 minutes but was cut to 5 minutes for radio and video airplay.
Their upcoming album, ‘Psychedelic Pill’ will hit the shelves on 30th October. Although it’s an eight-song album, some tracks are long enough that it’s like a double CD.
Moments after confirming the official release date of his ‘O.N.I.F.C.’ album, Wiz Khalifa has released his latest single entitled Remember You, which he created in collaboration with Toronto R&B impresario, The Weeknd.

The single, which serves as a follow-up to last April’s Work Hard, Play Hard, is now already made available for download in the US while it is expected to be released in the UK in the coming months. It is the second single off of the LP that is due out on December 4th, whereas Weeknd’s EPs will be re-released on November 13 as Trilogy.
Love Story hitmaker Taylor Swift previewed her fresh single Begin Again and introduced her track on Good Morning America last September 24.
She shares her new song’s concept: “It’s actually a song about kind of when you’ve gotten through a really bad relationship and you finally dust yourself off and go on that first day after a horrible breakup and the vulnerability that goes along with all of that.”
It’s easy to determine the meaning of her song when you listen to the lyrics. “It’s strange you think I’m funny ’cause he never did/I’ve been spending the last eight months thinking all love ever does is break, burn and end/But on a Wednesday in a cafe, I watched it begin again,” she sings.
Begin Again is the second single from her upcoming fourth studio album ‘Red,’ which will be released on October 22 and will have a live performance on Good Morning America. Her new track is now available on iTunes.
Taylor Swift’s well-prepared performance was a bit ruined by a wardrobe malfunction at the iHeartRadio Music Festival.
She didn’t notice that the right shoulder strap of her dress had come undone while she was onstage. In the video, It shows that a fan yanked on her glittery dress too hard while greeting the audience and Taylor didn’t realize it until around 15 seconds afterwards. She didn’t pull the strap back on until she finished the song but when she came back on the stage to perform You Belong With Me, she took off gown to reveal her glittery gold top and black shorts.
She also performed Mean, Love Story, and We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together at the concert taking place at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada last Saturday, September 22.
Taylor will reveal a portion of another song from the album Good Morning America, before the track is released via iTunes the day after. While she was at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, she announced, “Starting this week I’m gonna start unveiling new music. I really want there to be so many surprises left on the record for when it comes out eventually, some collaborations that haven’t been talked about and some songs that are definitely what make the album so unique.”

Green Day frontman Billie Joe is heading to rehab following a shocking outburst during the band’s performance at iHeart Radio Festival.
Joe burst into an “F” rant after their performance was cut short during their set to give more playing time to Usher and Rihanna. He then started to smash his beautiful yellow Gibson guitar and flipping off the camera. He was allegedly showing signs that he needed some professional help before cutting loose on Friday.
Here’s what the rocker said during their set.
‘You’re going to give me one minute? One f**king minute? I’ve been around since f**king 19 f**king 80 f**king 8, and you’re going to give me one f**king minute?” Billie Joe ranted. ‘I’m not f**king Justin Bieber, you motherf**kers.’
The band’s rep announced a statement, saying, “Green Day would like everyone to know that their set was not cut short by Clear Channel and to apologize to those they offended at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas. The band regretfully must postpone some of their upcoming promotion”.
Getting cut short during a set definitely is a big disappointment and with all the energy and momentum coming Billie’s way, stopping it is like a way of showing disrespect to the performer.
A lot of fans were surprised to know that Ke$ha is finally releasing her new album ‘Warrior’ come December 4. The announcement was made via her Twitter account last Wednesday, September 19, together with the release date of her newest single Die Young, which is set to hit the radio on September 25.
The new album features tracks written by Ke$ha and also includes collaborations with various producers, writers, and musicians including Will.i.am, Iggy Pop, Kojak, Max Martin, and a few more. It was originally expected to be released at the end of 2011 but was pushed back so that she could work on it further. She also told Calgary Herald last year that she hopes the album will “reinvent pop music”, and that it will have more or a rock feel to it.
Here’s the teaser video for the new single Die Young (a track produced by Dr. Luke), which Ke$ha shared with her Twitter followers.
British teen pop sensation One Direction just released their new music video, Live While We’re Young from their second album but it was leaked on the web.
The boy band tweeted: “We wanted our fans to see the video and hear the single in the proper way so we’ve moved the premiere to tonight.”
Their new music video was planned out to be released last Monday, September 24. The version was leaked online but the band still aims to release it in high quality. Their new song will premiere on the radio an hour before the video debut and is still scheduled to come out on October 1.
Live While We’re Young is the first single from their album ‘Take Me Home’ which will be released this November.

It looks like rockstar/actor Jared Leto can now add award-winning documentary filmmaker to his list of accomplishments after earning the award for People’s Choice in the recent Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on Monday, September 17.
His film entitled Artifact chronicles the band’s legal battle with their record label EMI back in 2008 when they were filed a $30-million lawsuit for breach of contract for failing to deliver the third of their five contracted albums.
But the film isn’t exactly the “turning a negative into a positive” kind of story as Leto himself admitted, saying that the whole thing wasn’t really even supposed to be about the band’s legal battle to begin with.
“It started as a film about the making of an album, and it became a film about the most brutal and challenging conflict of our lives,” he said during an interview with RollingStone.com, to which he also added, “I hope that artists and audiences watch this film and get a greater understanding of how things work [in the music industry], because understanding is the beginning of change. Inevitably, we’re all moving towards what I hope is a more transparent system.”
Nevertheless, what matters is that the band got something good out of the whole ordeal; the ironic thing about it is that the legal rift itself is what actually inspired the band to come up with their third album entitled ‘This Is War’, which they were being sued for.
It was an awesome performance by no other than the legendary King of Blues B.B. King, at the Hollywood Bowl on September 5th. King wrapped up the tour with the Tedeschi Trucks Band with a splendid jam that featured the husband-and-wife tandem of guitar great Derek Trucks and singer Susan Tedeschi. John Mayer also attended the show and joined King, Trucks, and Tedeschi onstage to perform some songs that including Guess Who.
Trucks was on fire once more as he scorched down with his soulful slide guitar solos who got King saying, “It’s a good thing I’m a boy. Because if I were a girl when you played like that…”
Meanwhile, Tedeschi Trucks Band also had a few sit-ins on their set as songwriter/guitarist David Ryan Harris and Dave Matthews Band/Lettuce trumpeter Rashawn Ross joined the band covering The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.
Watch the loose jam of John Mayer, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi and B.B. King.
After Pink’s Blow Me (One Last Kiss) went Platinum, she is hoping her success will continue with the video promotion of her second single Try.
