Sometimes it snows in April (like it did this year) — and sometimes, its a sign… A sign that we could be getting new music from Prince — very soon! According to Pitchfork:

Prince has announced a new partnership with Warner Bros. that gives him the rights to his master recordings and creates “an exclusive global licensing partnership that covers every album released from 1978 into the ’90s,” according to a press release.
Forthcoming projects are in the works, but first up is a digitally remastered deluxe edition of the classic Purple Rain, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this summer.
Prince will record a new album for Warner Bros., too. (It’s rumored to be titled Plectrum Electrum.) His statement is pretty boilerplate, but spot the idiosyncratic detail: “A brand-new studio album is on the way and both Warner Bros. Records and Eye are quite pleased with the results of the negotiations and look forward to a fruitful working relationship.”

Are you looking forward to new music from Prince and Zooey Deschanel? So, wait. Does that make Zooey Deschanel 2014’s new VANITY or what?!

!! OMG, listen to this: Jamie XX’s ‘Sleep Sound’ !!


Jamie XX has dropped a video for the warped techy Sleep Sound single off of his Girl / Sleep Sound release which is due out May 5th on Young Turks. A bit about the video via Nowness:

“London-based artist and poet Sofia Mattioli was asked to create a video for the member of The xx and Grammy-winning producer of Alicia Keys, Gil Scott-Heron and Drake. During the course of one day, she danced with 13 members of the Manchester Deaf Centre with ages ranging from five to 27 years old, who responded to the movement of the artist and the vibrations in the air given off by the song. “The relationship between silence and music is a big part of what I am trying to express with my work,” says Mattioli. “The first kid in the video, Archie, was bliss–all of them were amazing. I hope this is a project I can develop further.”

!! OMG, the beautiful burnout: TRUST’s ‘Capitol’ Video !!


TRUST‘s Robert Alfons has released the video for Capitol off of TRUST‘s second album Joyland.
At first watch, I thought this must most definitely be about a babe who unknowingly snacks on her brother’s pot brownies, and then trips her balls off watching TV by herself in the basement all afternoon while her parents are out! I wasn’t far off:

“For me, the song created its own surreal world of floating dreams and I wanted to capture that feeling in the video. The goal was to achieve a slightly timeless look with vintage-style visual effects created via a combination of practical lighting effects and VFX created in post” says Alfons. Adding that the song is: “Gazing, scenic, living out the fantasy in your head. In flight fascination, and the beautiful burnout.”

Check out the newest video from TRUST above and pick up the new album HERE!

!! OMG, I Heard You Have Some Wild Puns: Flo Rida teaches us how to make a big, sexy, MACHO single !!

flo-rida-02.jpg
This email from Flo Rida‘s “team” at Atlantic Records to potential songwriters really clears some shit up for us! We’ve been wondering how genius lyrics like “Whistle baby / Whistle baby / Let me know” or “You and me / Just me and you / Emotions I feel /Emotions are real”? came to be, and now we know.

Hey everyone!
I’ve attached a Zip file (Idea & Instrumental) for a Flo Rida idea that the whole team love the melody.. Just needs new lyrics.. Lyric brief is below..Would be great if you had any songwriters who could nail it!
Overall key with Flo Rida is to be masculine, macho, and iconic. Meaning we stay away from soft topics (like “your beautiful” or anything with love in it, unless something nonromantic like “I Love This Shit”).
We try to use concepts that have been #1s before but not interpolate (example “Jump” has been a #1 for Van Halen, Pointer Sisters, Kriss Kross, House Of Pain, and others). We love catch phrases, edgy/sexual double entendres, commands, and HUGGGEEEE melodies + lots of energy.

EDGY/SEXY/BUTCH has always been a solid recipe for success — just look at stars like Jody Foster! So it’s really no surprise that Flo has caught onto this… If you had to write a song for Flo, what would it be called?
