July 8, 2014

Usher has dropped a new song from his upcoming eighth album, which is due sometime later this year. The new track is called "She Came to Give it to You" (featuring Nicki Minaj) and it features funky, disco production from Pharrell Williams. Usher's album will reportedly feature a number of other guest spots, reports Rolling Stone, including Diplo, Skrillex, Chris Brown and Juicy J. Check out the new tune below:




After it was reported yesterday that Pink Floyd will release a new album called The Endless River, the band issued a statement confirming the October release. The brief statement says: "It is an album of mainly ambient and instrumental music based on the 1993/4 Division Bell sessions which feature David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright. The album is produced by David Gilmour with Phil Manzanera, Youth and recording engineer Andy Jackson. Work is still in progress, but more details to come at the end of the summer."

In the lead-up to a new album from The Dead Weather, due in 2015, Jack White is releasing a series of two-song singles. The first installment arrived back in January, and now White has announced the next release. Featuring songs called "Buzzkill(er)" and "It's Just Too Bad," the new 7-inch will be available first as part of the Third Man Records "Vault" subscription series. It will be released digitally at a later date.

Queens Of The Stone Age will finish up their ...Like Clockwork world tour with a big Halloween bash in Los Angeles. The band scheduled an October 31 gig at The Forum in L.A., which will see a headline set from QOTSA with support from former band member Nick Oliveri and his new project, Uncontrollable, as well as The Kills and JD McPherson. The event also will feature "Side Show attractions, Costume Contests and the horrifying Blackout Haunted House," according to the band's website.
