Justin Bieber releases first post-arrest music: Hear 'Broken' here!

Considering all the stories about hotboxing private planes and rejecting very reasonable plea deals for his DUI arrest, it’s easy to forget that Justin Bieber is primarily famous for creating music. His extra-curricular activities have eclipsed his work as of late, though he’s making attempts to shift the focus back on the tunes.

Thus, the arrival of “Broken,” Bieber’s first post-arrest song and a seemingly direct response to his latest tabloid turmoil. Over the weekend, Bieber’s DJ Tay James dropped a mixtape called We Know The DJ Radio 4which contains “Broken” and features a guest rap by Blake Kelly. On the track, Bieber repeatedly announces “I cannot be broken,” and opens the track with the line “I guess they want a reaction/ I ain’t gonna give it to ‘em.” (Don’t work too hard trying to resolve the logic of that line—just go with it.)

Listen to “Broken” below.  READ FULL STORY

Pussy Riot release Putin-bashing music video shot at Olympics

While the world’s attention is focused on Russia for the Olympics, protest collective/punk band/righteous agitators Pussy Riot are grabbing headlines again — this time for a music video that includes footage of the group being publicly beaten by the Russian militia.

“Putin Will Teach You How To Love” features the members of the group, in their trademark colorful balaclavas, storming through the streets of Sochi, dancing in front of the Olympic rings, interacting with a weird looking mascot, and getting pummeled by Russian militia forces. The protesters include Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina, both of whom were recently released from a Russian prison.

“Under the banner Sochi 2014, to the sound of ‘Putin will teach us to love the homeland,’ Cossacks attacked Pussy Riot, beat us with whips and sprayed a lot of pepper gas at us,” Tolokonnikova tweeted.

Check out their good old-fashioned punk rock anarchy below.  READ FULL STORY

Jack Antonoff, one-third of chart-topping band fun. and one whole of Lena Dunham’s other half, released a song from his latest side project today.

Afghan Whigs' Greg Dulli on reuniting the band, getting outplayed by Bob Odenkirk, and more

AFGHAN-WHIGS.jpg

When cultishly adored indie heroes Afghan Whigs first got back together in 2012, it was only going to be for a handful of shows. But then a few shows turned into a few more, and then more legs of an international tour.

Now Afghan Whigs are simply a band again — and they’re celebrating it with a new album, Do To The Beast, out April 15. This morning, they unveiled the album’s first single, “Algiers,” and premiered the video (both are below).

Frontman Greg Dulli spoke exclusively to EW about how Usher inspired the album, the inspiration for their new video, and how Breaking Bad‘s Bob Odenkirk scooped everybody on the album’s existence.

EW: So when did the idea of doing a record set in?
Greg Dulli: It was after we played the gig with Usher at South by Southwest in March. [Bassist] John [Curley] and I had dinner and talked about making a record. We decided that we should. We started in May, and I finished it on December 30, and there you have it.

Was there anything different about being in the studio this time, compared to the last time you guys recorded together?
I don’t think anything has changed for me studio-wise since I was a teenager. You go in with an idea, and you work it out until it becomes something you enjoy. Recording has always been very simple and therapeutic for me. No matter when and how I’ve done it, it’s always a very consistent experience. Sometimes it doesn’t go the way you want to, and there’s certainly successes and failures in anything, but I have a very zen approach to recording, honestly. It serves me well. READ FULL STORY

Nicki Minaj vs. Mariah Carey, round 253: Which video do you prefer?

Nicki-Minaj.jpg

Even though they no longer share a judges’ table on American Idol, that doesn’t mean Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey can’t still go head to head.

Yesterday, both ladies unveiled brand new videos. Minaj pulled back the curtain on the clip for her new single “Lookin Ass N—a,” which puts her in the middle of the desert in stark black and white and gives her a machine gun (until the end, when she gets a second machine gun). It’s not especially subtle, but it does get her point across. Give it a watch below: READ FULL STORY

U2's new 'Invisible' video brings on the light show, big round microphones: Watch it here

Invisible.jpg

If this was 1994 and U2 were still in their crazy art project phase, the video for “Invisible” would probably be a series of shots of an empty stage, or just a static four minutes of darkness. Because, you see, it’d be invisible.

Thankfully, the video for the band’s new single is not that literal. In stately black and white, the band cranks out their latest with the aid of some impressive backlight effects (good thing Bono wears those sunglasses!) and a wacky circular microphone that hangs from the ceiling. Like most 21st-century U2 projects, it’s well executed without being blow-away impressive, though “Invisible” continues to improve as a song with each subsequent listen.

Ingrid Michaelson plays her own Robert Palmer in new 'Girls Chase Boys' video - EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE

Ingrid-Michaelson.jpg

Singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson famously channeled a handful of classic rock stars  — including John Lennon, David Bowie, and Gene Simmons — in her 2012 clip for “Blood Brothers.” Now, for her new single “Girls Chase Boys,” she’s tipping her Patrick Nagel-painted hat to Robert Palmer.

The track is the first single from Michaelson’s brand new album Lights Out, due April 15. It’s a darker, more complicated side of the singer, she told EW: “‘Girls Chase Boys’ started out as a break up song but took on a deeper meaning as I continued writing. More than just being about my experience, its focus shifted to include the idea that, no matter who or how we love, we are all the same. The video takes that idea one step further, and attempts to turn stereotypical gender roles on their head. Girls don’t exclusively chase boys. We all know this. We all chase each other and in the end we are all chasing after the same thing: love.”

The clip is a gender-tweaking homage to Palmer’s  1988 video for “Simply Irresistible,” one of the more iconic clips of the decade. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY

Bask in the brilliance of the Nine Inch Nails parody 'This Is A Trent Reznor Song'

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Frederick Scott just paid Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor the ultimate compliment.

Scott’s “This Is a Trent Reznor Song” is a spot-on homage to Reznor, who Scott described on Twitter as “one of my musical heroes.” In a track that ends up sounding an awful lot like Reznor’s Hesitation Marks single “Came Back Haunted,” Scott narrates the construction of a typical NIN tune, pointing out the esoteric percussion, weird noises, and the escalating nature of Reznor’s voice.

Anybody who has spent quality time with The Downward Spiral or The Fragile will understand. Listen below: READ FULL STORY
