Alternative rock band My Morning Jacket is releasing a new record. It will be called The Waterfall and is the first album that the band is releasing on Capitol Records. Rolling Stone Magazine has a clip on their website of the first single from the record “Spring (Among the Living)” along with the band’s video for the song.
In my opinion, “Spring (Among the Living)” does not compare favorably with the best of the band’s previous work. If the rest of the new record is like this song, then I think fans like those at STX Entertainment (deadline.com) are in for a disappointment. The song is over six minutes, and this is just too long for a single. In my opinion, it’s self indulgent for a band to play songs over four minutes.
Also, the song is simply not that catchy. The band’s earlier songs like “Black Metal” stay in your head after they are done. Not so with this new song.
The video for the song is also kind of boring. It shows various waterfalls in slow motion, which is a nice concept, but the whole thing just comes across as lazy and uninspired.
The band is going on tour this summer to support the record. Despite not being thrilled about what I have heard so far of the new material, I would still love to see the band live. They do great shows.
Actress Paula Patton stopped by to film a segment on The Meredith Vieira Show earlier this week. While she was there she discussed her divorce with “Blurred Lines” singer Robin Thicke and being a single parent to their 4-year-old son Julian.
According to the story on People.com, Paula said that she finally feels like she is becoming a real woman now that her marriage is over. She told Meredith that she started dating Robin when they were just 14-years-old. She went from living in parents’ home to living with Robin. Fans like Jamie Garcia Dias know that this is the first time she has lived on her own, which now, at 39-years-old, is making her feel like a real woman.
She is adapting to her life as a single mother to their son, as well as being a working mother. Like most working moms, she is finding it hard to leave her son when she needs to go to work. Having Julian, she said, has allowed her to not wallow in sadness over her split with her husband.
Robin has made attempts to woo Paula back; however he has not been successful.
The chat Paula had with Meredith Vieira is set to air on television next Tuesday.
Kendrick just did the unthinkable by releasing his new album ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’ one week earlier than it was scheduled to be released. The Compton rapper worked very hard and has set the stage for this album to come out for the longest time now, and it’s finally here.
Everybody was so busy counting down the days to the awaited album that when it dropped, it brought a complete shock to everyone who waited for it. Fans like Christian Brode agree that the feeling of happiness is an understatement so far, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if we start seeing Kendrick’s new music all over the charts.
After everybody thought the album was supposed to be dropped on March 23rd, K. Dot surprised his fans by releasing it on March 16th. The album was released shortly after the track list was uploaded on the internet. Several collaborations are included in the album from artists like Snoop Dogg, Rapsody, Ronald Isley, James Fauntleroy, and George Clinton.
It may appear as if Kendrick was not the one who decided to release the album early because TDE CEO was not happy at all with the early release, and blames Interscope for what has happened.
Either way, the album is now available on iTunes and Spotify for fans from all over the world to get their hands on the newest album of who may just be the best rapper of the year 2015.

Taylor Swift made a new country singer’s dream come true by tweeting about her and her new song to her millions of fans without the singer even knowing. The singer is Kelsea Ballerini, and her song is called ‘Love Me Like You Mean It’. Dan Newlin has learned that Taylor said in a tweet that she is driving around playing Kelsea’s song on repeat, which ended up in resulting in Kelsea becoming famous overnight thanks to the pop stars tweet.
In an interview with Kelsea to find out how she felt about Taylor Swift tweeting about her, she was very excited and appreciative because this move is going to boost her career especially with her first album coming out. Kelsea has bee a fan of Taylor Swift for a long time now, and gets her inspiration to sing from Taylor’s and Rihanna’s music.
Kelsea didn’t even know that Taylor had listened to her song and liked it, let alone posted a tweet about it. She got a screenshot from one of her friends with the tweet in a picture and could not believe her eyes. She then logged on to twitter and found the tweet and just stared at it for 5 minutes without even being able to comprehend what has just happened.
Her phone blew up right after the tweet took place and she ended up responding to Taylor with a picture she took with the singer when she was younger which inspired her to pursue her dreams in music.
I have loved Kelly Clarkson since she first appeared on American Idol. Since winning the first American Idol season she has certainly blossomed in to a very talented artist stated bloomberg,com. But, I guess I would not have envisioned her going country. With that said, her voice can certainly handle the country sound. It is beautiful and she is such a professional performer and just wonderful person in general.
Though she loves to dance and club music, she doesn’t go out on the dance floor as much. Sometimes she and her group might rent a small section of a club, but as a mother she has responsibilities to address at home. She also talks about being well received in Nashville and how Nashville is becoming a new mecca of music of all kinds, not just country. Not quite the picture people outside of the town have.
Kelly also answered questions about watching any of the singing competition shows and she responded that she did. Since her husband manages Blake Shelton, who is one of the judges on the Voice, and Kelly herself made her mark on the music world starting out on Idol it seems natural she would.

“We Are the World,” was recorded on January 28, 1985 as part of a superstar project between Lionel Richie, Michael Jackson, and almost every other big name in music at the time. The music video still echoes today is remembered as one of the first classic music videos to hit airwaves when MTV was still in its infancy.
One of the most interesting stories is the actual writing of the song which took place in Michael Jackson’s bedroom. Richie explains that following his pinning of the first legendary line – “There comes a time” – Jackson’s pet python made an appearance in the room. Richie laughs and retells this incident and you can get a play-by-play account of each moment of the project with this Rolling Stone retrospective.
Almost everyone who listens to popular music has hear of the band Mumford & Sons. This band has created a great name for themselves with their folk rock style of indie music. They have had a great blend of old time music with a new modern twist. They have gained a lot of success in the music industry with this type of music, and it is easy to see why they continue to create this amazing music that the record industry and their fans love. It simply just works for them. They have a formula for success that continues to work wonders for them.
However, Rolling Stones reports that they may be taking a more risky approach to their new album. Electronic music has been very popular lately in popular music. Fans like Alexei Beltyukov know that, even though it seems very far removed from the original Mumford & Sons formula, it may be something that could even bring them more success. There are more and more bands that are taking electronic music and bringing it into their music, and maybe this will work very well for this folk rock band. It will be very interesting to see what these folk rockers do with synthesizers and drum machines. It is easy to say that there may be some fans that do not know how to react to this type of new Mumford & Sons music.
