Little Big Town Debuts New Song With Help From the Roots

October 31, 2014 Music

Little Big Town may have wished they could "Stay All Night" when they visited Jimmy Fallon and performed on the Tonight Show this week, but they certainly made an impression with the time they had. The group, whose newest record, Pain Killer, debuted this week at Number Three on the country albums chart, was joined by Tonight Show house band the Roots for a beefed-up version of album highlight "Stay All Night." The performance included what may be a first for country music on TV: a tuba!



Little Big Town Offer Provocative Pill on LP 'Pain Killer'


The unexpected is par for Little Big Town's course, however, especially when it comes to working with their Pain Killer producer, Jay Joyce.

Cowboy Ballads & Country Rockers: Garth Brooks Previews New LP

October 31, 2014 Music

Earlier this morning, while fans logged onto GhostTunes to hear free, 60-second clips of the 14 songs from Garth Brooks' forthcoming Man Against Machine, the singer hosted a more in-depth listening session at the headquarters of his new record label, Sony Music Nashville. 



Garth Brooks' Halloween Treat: A Sneak Peak of New Album


The setting — a renovated chapel that Sony currently uses as a listening room — was formal enough, but Brooks kept things casual, taking the stage/pulpit in blue jeans, sneakers, baseball cap and an oversized Nashville Predators sweatshirt. He got serious when it came to the music, though, visibly choking up during a live, acoustic performance of "Mom" — a ballad he described as "a conversation that goes on

Hear Nas’ J Dilla–Sampling New Song ‘The Season’

October 31, 2014 Music

Earlier this week, Nas crashed a Run the Jewels listening party to play fans his latest single, "The Season." Now the rapper has shared the smoothly soulful song online, making it available to stream below and download.



Nas: My Life in 20 Songs


After months of promoting the 20th anniversary edition of his breakthrough debut, Illmatic, and the documentary, Time Is Illmatic, Nas has been spending his time crafting his next record with producers Timbaland, Swizz Beats and No I.D. The rapper has yet to announce a release date for the album.



Midway into "The Season," which may or may not appear on the LP, the track finds the rapper bragging, "Hands in the air, the season of Nasir," as well as "This soulful sample complements my rhyme so well," which

Chart Report: Florida Georgia Line Remain Number One, Jason Aldean in Second Slot

October 31, 2014 Music

The country charts received a shot of Pain Killer this week as Little Big Town's sixth studio release becomes the quartet's fourth to reach the Top Ten on Billboard's Country Albums chart. Debuting at Number Three and led by the group's Top Ten hit "Day Drinking," Pain Killer sold 42,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That amount is less than half of the 113,000 copies their previous album, Tornado, sold in its debut week in 2012, earning them their second chart-topping disc. That album, however, was buoyed by mega success of their single "Pontoon." The group had also debuted at the top spot on the country survey with their 2010 LP The Reason Why.

Bob Dylan Releasing New Album ‘Shadows in the Night’ In 2015

October 31, 2014 Music

Bob Dylan's upcoming covers disc Shadows In The Night is officially slated for a 2015 release, according to an ad inserted into advance copies of Dylan's new The Basement Tapes Complete box set. News of the LP first came in May when Dylan posted a cover of Frank Sinatra's 1945 hit "Full Moon and Empty Arms." "The track is definitely from a forthcoming album due later on this year," a spokesperson for Dylan told Rolling Stone at the time - though the timeline has obviously shifted since then.



Bob Dylan's Legendary 'Basement Tapes' Will Be Released


It's unclear what other songs will be on the collection, though this week Dylan began ending his live set with "Stay With Me," a track that Sinatra turned into a hit in 1964. Shadows In The Night

Florida Georgia Line Channel ‘Office Space’ for Wild ‘Sun Daze’ Video

October 31, 2014 Music

If only Tyler Hubbard said, "BK, I believe you have my stapler." Florida Georgia Line pay homage to Office Space in the video for new single "Sun Daze." Opening with Hubbard and Brian Kelley dressed in their nerdy Milton Waddams best, the clip casts the duo as cubicle dwellers in an antiseptic office. Cue the wavy day-dream sequence and the guys are transported to an outrageous pool party, where people in plushie costumes and animal masks straight out of Eyes Wide Shut push the decadence meter into the red. (The highlight, though, are Hubbard and Kelley's dogs, who steal the final scene of the clip.)

Watch an Epic ‘Ghostbusters’ Audio-Visual EDM Remix

October 31, 2014 Music

It's been 30 years since the paranormal comedy Ghostbusters first possessed the big screen – and to celebrate, audio-visual crew Eclectic Method have paid tribute to that classic film with a jittery remix. Jonny Wilson gives the original theme song a distorted electronic facelift, blending fragments of synths, programmed beats and snippets of dialogue from the film itself. On the visual side, cast members like Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, Sigourney Weaver and Dan Aykroyd all make appearances – along with some of their demonic and ghostly nemeses. Check out the mash-up above, just in time for Halloween – but remember not to "cross the streams."
