!! OMG, Lady Gaga Has a New Song: You and I !!


Maybe it was because she was performing at Elton John’s party, but Lady Gaga’s British accent (by way of MADGE) is stronger than ever! How did a girl from the Upper East Side end up sounding like Margaret Thatcher after a long night of partying with the boys?
Well pay no mind! Gaga performed a new song called You and I, which she explains will probably never be a single because it’s “Kind of a rock and roll tune.”

Björk and Brooklyn rock band Dirty Projectors have revealed the details of a 20-minute, seven-song EP to be released this week. Entitled Mount Wittenberg Orca, the songs were originally written for a joint benefit concert they performed last year. The material for the collaboration was inspired by family of whales that DP member Amber spotted off the Northern California coast and 100% of the sales proceeds will go toward the National Geographic Society’s marine conservation efforts.
The EP will be available to buy for $7 exclusively via Topspin.net as of June 30. Here is the tracklisting:
Ocean
On And Ever Onward
When The World Comes To An End

!! OMG, a Q&A with Ana Matronic of Scissor Sisters !!

scissor-sisters-2010.jpg

After a four-year hiatus, glam pop act Scissor Sisters are gearing up for the release of their third album Night Work on June 29 (June 28 in the UK). The inspiration for the record’s dark, backroom disco sound resulted from a tumultuous couple of years that saw the band scrap an entire album’s worth of songs and start afresh.

Determined to shake his bout of writers block following the Sisters’ disappointing 2006 sophomore effort Ta-Dah, front man Jake Shears vanished from New York and threw himself headlong into the Berlin club scene. He emerged with an idea to team up with mega-producer Stuart Price (Madonna, Kylie) and write an album that paid tribute to the seedier side of New York’s gay nightlife in the 1980s.

To find out more about the inspiration behind Night Work and what the Sisters have been up to recently, we caught up with Trannyshack drag performer-turned-Euro pop idol Ana Matronic for a chat. Read the Q&A after the jump.
