Eminem
Eminem and Shady Records will celebrate the label's 15th anniversary with its fifteenth release: ShadyXV, a two-CD compilation. One CD features an album of the label's greatest hits, including classics such as 50 Cent's "In Da Club" and Eminem's "Lose Yourself." The second CD will be an album of new material from Eminem, Slaughterhouse, Bad Meets Evil, D-12 and Yelawolf as well as special guest-artist collaborations. ShadyXV, set for release on November 24, is preceded by the new Eminem single, "Guts Over Fear," featuring Sia. The song is out today, and fans will also hear it in the trailer for the upcoming film The Equalizer, which will be in theaters on September 26.

Before Ed Sheeran took the stage at MTV Video Music Awards to accept his first-ever VMA for Best Male Video for "Sing," the U.K. singer/songwriter told Billboard that he's been in the studio with French producer David Guetta. "Two days ago, I wrote and recorded two songs with David Guetta, for some other people to sing," Sheeran told Billboard on the red carpet. "I'm going in tomorrow to do some stuff for myself." Meanwhile, to celebrate his latest hit song "Don't," Sheeran digitally released the four-song Don’t EP. The EP includes a Rick Ross-featured remix of "Don't," two brand new songs called "Friends" and "Everything You Are," and a live version of "Be My Husband" that was recorded at this year's Glastonbury Festival. Sheeran will perform "Don't" on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Thursday, August 28.

It turns out that Prince will release not just one, but two albums via Warner Bros. next month. His long-teased album with the band 3rdEyeGirl, dubbed Plectrumelectrum, is due on September 30, as is a new Prince solo album called Art Official Age. Fans can order both albums at www.artofficialage.com. The Purple One will reportedly hold a series of special events and live dates around the world to celebrate the albums' release. More details are forthcoming.

Grouplove have unveiled the theme song to the darkly funny, animated NetFlix Original Series, BoJack Horseman, starring Will Arnett, Aaron Paul, and Amy Sedaris. Written and recorded by Grouplove frontman Christian Zucconi specifically for the series, the song, "Back In The '90s (BoJack Theme Song)," plays at the conclusion of each episode of the new series. Meanwhile, fans also can catch Grouplove on NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers on September 17.

Cobra Starship has returned, teaming up with Wallpaper. and John Ryan to release the summer song "Never Been In Love" featuring Icona Pop. The track will be featured on Cobra Starship's forthcoming new album. Speaking about the new tune, frontman Gabe Saporta commented: "I had been listening to a lot of early '90s U.K. artists -- Jesus Jones, EMF, George Michael. It was a time when bands first started incorporating break beats and electronic elements into their music. I had been trying to find a way to modernize that sound."
