Mumford & Sons covers The National's 'England' on 'VH1 Unplugged' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Mumford & Sons doing The National? Yes, please.

The buzzy English folk rockers are the latest to take the plunge on VH1′s recently rebooted Unplugged series, and EW has the exclusive video of their cover of stately Brooklyn-based indie outfit The National‘s song “England.”

It turns out that the Mumford boys have admired The National for a long time. “We’re big fans,” says Mumford & Sons vocalist Marcus Mumford just before performing “England” in the video, embedded below.

“Last summer,” he continues, “we got to see them, like, five or six times, and really loved High Violet as an album and that song ['England] obviously sticks out for us cause we’re English. Still trying to figure out if it’s offensive towards English people, but yeah, we’re making it non-offensive. We’re making it sort of like a real Britannia song today.”

“When we were asked to play a cover, it just sort of jumped out. As opposed,” he jokes, “to playing Ween’s version of ‘Waving my D— in the Wind,’ which we thought we’d save for another time.” Watch it here:

Taylor Swift's tour openers Needtobreathe debut their 'Girl Named Tennessee' video: Watch it here - EXCLUSIVE

Opening a tour for a multiplatinum crossover star like  Taylor Swift is pretty much the music-industry equivalent of winning one of Willy Wonka’s golden tickets—and South Carolina country-rock quartet Needtobreathe have snagged that prize, joining Swift on the road as she kicked off her latest tour last week.

And now, the foursome may have a crossover hit of their own in “Girl Named Tennessee,” which comes from the band’s 2009 album The Outsiders.

Check out the clip for the rollicking foot-stomper after the jump:

Low premiere new video 'Try to Sleep' starring ... John Stamos? Yes! Watch it here -- EXCLUSIVE

Try-to-Sleep

Duluth, Minnesota band Low have spent the last two decades crafting moody, minimalist soundscapes that provide backdrops to their narratives of heartbreak and loss.

John Stamos has spent those same decades raising the Olsen twins, hitting “Kokomo” sticks for the Beach Boys, carving out a Broadway career, and becoming a beloved component of Glee.

Those two disparate forces have come together for Low’s new video “Try to Sleep,” which stars Stamos. You can check out the exclusive premiere of the clip after the jump.

Jack Johnson's new video 'From the Clouds': Watch it here -- EXCLUSIVE

Okay, not really; he never touches ground in the clip, but that’s due to a few dozen leaps from a 40-foot diving board and a special slow-motion HD camera.

Still the video for “From the Clouds,” the third single from his fifth studio album, To the Sea, making its debut here exclusively on EW.com, was initially up in the air itself. “This video feels like it’s so late after the album came out, I even forgot it was happening at first,” the singer-songwriter tells EW in his low-key drawl. (To the Sea dropped in June of last year.) “Then my manager, Emmett Malloy, called me up and said that it was doing pretty well on radio, so we decided it would be worth doing it.” And here is the result: READ FULL STORY

T.I. performs 'What You Know' on his VH1 Storytellers: Check out the EW exclusive here

On the heels of T.I.‘s No Mercy release, VH1 will air their latest edition of Storytellers–featuring the Atlanta rap star this Friday (Dec. 10) at 11 pm. Recorded months ago when Mercy was still entitled King Uncaged and T.I. was still a free man, the show mostly focuses on the stories behind his biggest hits as well as old cuts he’s hardly performed, rather than even a few songs from his new offering. In this EW exclusive clip, he explains what inspired his chart-topping 2006 single “What You Know.”  It was recorded while he was filming ATL,  his first movie and, well, I’ll let him explain it himself. Check out the clip after the jump.

Ingrid Michaelson's 'Parachute' video: An EW exclusive premiere

ingrid-michaelsonImage Credit: Shervin LainezIndie songstress and TV and film soundtrack mainstay Ingrid Michaelson released her most recent album, Everybody, last August. But one standalone track she co-penned, “Parachute,” took an unusual detour—becoming a European pop hit for former Brit girl-group star and X Factor judge Cheryl Cole earlier this year.

“It didn’t feel like something I could put out because it was so poppy, [so] we shipped it off for people to take a gander and see who would pick it up,” Michaelson says of the song, which eventually made its way to Cole’s camp.

It took producer Dan Romer, who worked with Michaelson on Everybody, to convince Michaelson to record “Parachute” herself: “He kind of jumped on the project, did this really interesting, funky production, and sent it to me. It was rad and cool and different. We put some new vocals on it, and I was like, ‘I love it!’

Watch EW’s exclusive premiere of the New York City native’s own, less thigh-centric video for her version, helmed by director Adria Petty (Beyonce’s “Sweet Dreams,” Duffy’s “Mercy”), after the jump: READ FULL STORY
