Watch 'Spellwork,' the bewitching new video from Austra -- EXCLUSIVE

austra

Want to know what happens deep in the woods behind your house when you’re away?

According to “Spellwork,” the witchy new music video from synth-pop trio (and 2011 EW MVP) Austra, some really spooky Canadian stuff.

The song, off the Toronto group’s acclaimed full-length debut Feel It Break, soundtracks an unsettlingly mesmerizing video full of sister wives, black steeds, a red-hooded cult, and some dude wearing a possibly off-brand Guy Fawkes/V for Vendetta mask.

Check it out below, and don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Watch My Chemical Romance perform 'Every Snowflake Is Different (Just Like You)' on 'Yo Gabba Gabba': An EW video exclusive!

If you’re anything like us, you’ve been sick of Christmas music for weeks now. Sure, ’tis the season and all, but you can only take so many renditions of “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” before you have to crank up some Mastodon to wash it all away.

But as My Chemical Romance has proven, there is still room for some new seasonal tunes. The New Jersey band will be appearing on a special episode of psychedelic kids’ show Yo Gabba Gabba!, titled “A Very Awesome Christmas.”

They’ll be performing a tune called “Every Snowflake Is Different (Just Like You),” a bouncy, bombastic little rock tune that wouldn’t have been all that out of place on the band’s woefully underrated 2010 album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys.

With the band dressed in colorful ski gear, “Every Snowflake Is Different” celebrates uniqueness while also turning up the volume and building a healthy post-emo stomp. You can check out the exclusive video premiere of the band’s performance on the show below. READ FULL STORY

Washed Out's 'Amor Fati' video: Watch the exclusive EW premiere!

Though his nom de synth suggests something tired and dull, low-fi keyboard king Ernest Greene, a.k.a. Washed Out, is just getting warmed up.

Within and Without, his first full-length album, has been steadily generating buzz since it dropped back in July, and the attention is well-warranted; his combination of moody, swirling melodies and heart-on-sleeve longing only sound better as the leaves fall off the trees.

EW is happy to premiere the Iceland-shot video for his new single “Amor Fati,” in which Greene pairs minimalist swoon with a good old-fashioned road movie that finds his stand-in (fellow musician Luke Rathborne) rambling along country roads, chasing livestock, taking a bath with a beautiful woman, engaging in some verbal foreplay with a hot dog vendor, and generally re-creating the hallucinatory sense of awe and alienation one gets on an extended foreign vacation.

Rockers We Were Promised Jetpacks get lovely and violent for 'Medicine' video: Watch the EXCLUSIVE premiere here!

Edinburgh indie-rock outfit We Were Promised Jetpacks released one of the most critically-acclaimed albums of 2009 in These Four Walls, and after spending the better part of the last two years on the road with the likes of Passion Pit, Tokyo Police Club, and Jimmy Eat World, they’re back with a new album called In the Pit of the Stomach.

It hits stores on October 4, and like its predecessor, it’s full of spectacularly jittery guitar workouts that are heavy on melody and even heavier on Scottish charm.

The album’s first single “Medicine” is a prime example — sending great bushels of guitar fuzz and breathless hi-hats tumbling down a mountain of melody.

The song’s accompanying video is a thrillingly gritty affair that carries on the grand tradition of vigilante justice by way of elaborate super-hero costumes and in-your-face violence. Watch the exclusive premiere of “Medicine” below: READ FULL STORY

'Pop Up Video' reboot: Watch them skewer Britney Spears' 'Till the World Ends'

VH1 announced back in May that it was resurrecting its beloved late ’90s/early ’00s series Pop Up Video, which successfully ran on the cable network (and was its highest-rated series for a time) from 1996 through 2002.

Well, that announcement is about to bear fruit: The show — which famously began the trend of playing back music videos and overlaying them with nuggets of behind-the-scenes info and other funny and/or snarky quips — is set to return Oct. 3.

Below you can check out the updated opening graphics, as well as the Pop Up version of Britney Spears’ apocalyptic dance party video for “Till the World Ends,” which will air in the two episodes that debut on premiere night. READ FULL STORY

Abigail Breslin hugs puppies in Nat & Alex Wolff's 'Thump Thump Thump': EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Question: what’s cuter than Abigail Breslin? (Awww!) Answer: Abigail Breslin letting a pudgy French bull dog lick her nose. (AWWWW!)

That’s what’s happening in the video for Nat & Alex Wolff’s “Thump Thump Thump,” a strummy-sweet ode to puppy love that stars actual puppies—alongside Nat and Alex Wolff, the sibling duo from Nickelodeon’s The Naked Brothers Band.

The clip also finds Breslin recreating the spaghetti scene from Lady and the Tramp with 13-year-old Alex, who spends much of the video competing with his 16-year-old brother Nat for Breslin’s attention.

Watch them fist-fight over her while puppies watch from a distance. We know what they’re thinking: Hit him! Also: Treat? Treat! Someone give us a treat! Watch it here:

Tomorrow sees the release of The Green Album, a new collection of classic Muppets songs performed by the likes of Weezer, OK Go, Hayley Williams of Paramore, My Morning Jacket, Rachael Yamagata, the Fray, and an eclectic bunch of others.

It’s the first in a number of projects in what should be a pretty Muppet-centric season, as the new Jason Segal-penned film The Muppets hits theater screens in November.

OK Go (who have a bit of history with everybody’s favorite felt-based entertainers) were charged with remaking the theme song from the classic Muppet Show. For the official music video, which premieres tomorrow on Vevo, the band teamed up with a pack of Muppet all-stars—including Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy—to re-create some of OK Go’s classic videos (most of which are modern classics).

Ricky Martin on VH1's 'Behind the Music': On hiding his sexuality during his rise to success -- EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW VIDEO

Latin heartthrob Ricky Martin sold more than 60 million albums during his run at the top of the charts in the late 1990s and early 2000s, with hits such as “Living La Vida Loca,” “She Bangs,” and “La Copa de la Vida.”

Through it all, though, he was hiding a big secret about his sexuality that didn’t come out until much later.

Martin has done VH1′s Behind the Music once before, but he returns for a second round to discuss his amazing success and, yes, the latest beat in his career and life — his coming out as a gay man — in an episode, Behind the Music: Ricky Martin, that airs on the cable network this Sunday, Aug. 14, at 10 p.m. EW has the exclusive preview clip from the hour-long episode.

“I was trying to believe so hard from the bottom of my heart that I was not gay because what I was presenting on stage was not that,” Martin candidly says in the clip, which you can find below. “So it was very confusing.” He goes on to discuss his relationships with men — and women! — while he was a rising star in the ’90s.

Adam Lambert on VH1's 'Behind the Music': His struggle with his sexuality -- EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW VIDEO

Enrique Iglesias on 'Behind the Music': His meteoric rise to stardom -- EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW VIDEO

Only a handful of stars have rocketed to fame as quickly as Latin singer Enrique Iglesias did when he cracked the global pop market in 1999.

A string of hits that included “Be With You” and “Hero” solidified him as a superstar here in America. That meteoric rise is chronicled in the latest episode of VH1′s Behind the Music: Enrique Iglesias, which will air on the cable network Sunday, July 31, at 10 p.m. EW has the exclusive preview clip of the hour-long episode.

“My first album had just sold, like, six and a half million copies in Spanish,” Iglesias remembers in the preview clip, “and two million in the U.S. with the Spanish album, which was crazy.” The clip also features an interview from a much-younger Iglesias, talking about his pre-fame romantic trials back in 1999. “Before I was a singer, I used to get dumped all the time,” he says. “Suddenly, you become a singer, and someone’s sex life can definitely get a lot better.”

The episode, of course, also retraces the rest of Iglesias’ career and what led him to sell more than 58 million records worldwide. Iglesias discusses how he came to be the man he is today, what the people in his life mean to him, and his 10-year relationship with tennis superstar Anna Kournikova. Plus: He reveals his thoughts on the rumors and issues that have plagued him during his career.
