ed-sheeran-sing-

Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has been nabbling in the hip hop scene, first with Lupe Fiasco and now he’s working with the likes of Pharrell. He debuts the first single which is produced by Pharrell titled “Sing”. The British singer currently working on a brand new album, X which will be released in June. I think this is a great record, and great choice for a first single.

travie-mccoy-keepon-keeping

Haven’t heard much from Travie McCoy lately, but today is a different story. Travie releases the official visuals for his Brendon Urie uplifting record “Keep On Keeping On”. To be honest, this sounds really good, and I hope it does really well, especially if he’s releasing an album soon. If this what happens when the Gym Class Hero and Panic! at the Disco connect, I’m all for it.

So no-one was gonna inform me about this. Anyways, after releasing one of the most underrated rock albums in 2011 with their fifth studio album, Mylo Xyloto, a couple of days ago Coldplay released a new single. The feel good first single “Magic” is a great sign of some new music coming, and a great album brewing. On May 19th, 2014 the British alternative rock band will release their forthcoming sixth studio album, Ghost Stories. By judging this single, who wouldn’t be more excited to have a new Coldplay album this year.

Linkin Park feat. Rakim – Guilty All The Same

linkin-park-guilty-

Talk about an unexpected combination. One of my favorite rock groups Linkin Park debuted a brand new single entitled “Guilty All The Same”. The nearly 6 minute rock influenced single features a verse from a legend in his own right, Rakim. Haven’t heard Rakim spit a verse on a record like this, but Rakim appears at the 3:38 mark. Glad to see Linkin Park back.

“The reason we went with this single first is that we think it’s a good look into the DNA of the record that we’re putting out this summer. (Rakim)That’s like one of my idols. If you get into the nitty-gritty of his rhyme pattern and the topic in this song, it’s bananas what he is doing. He’s on the some Steve Vai s*** vocally.”

Check out the performance which can be found after the jump.

Fefe Dobson – Legacy (Official Video)

fefe_marilyn

Been awhile since I’ve heard from Canadian songwriter and recording artist FeFe Dobson, but the gorgeous rock star singer debuts her music video “Legacy” today. The video starts out with FeFe portraying the lovely Marilyn Monroe while being carried down the hallway in a psych ward by staff. She wants to believe and think she’s Marilyn Monroe, Michael Jackson, and Amy Winehouse. The video is very rock-ish and gives me a glimpse of the love I have for her since she stepped onto the scene. Take a journey in her “Legacy” and check out the video after the jump.
