Paul McCartney unearths lost duet with John Bonham, Beware My Love
Oct 20, 2014 3:35pm | Cosequence Of Sound

On November 4th, Paul McCartney will reissue a deluxe edition of Wings fifth album, Wings at the Speed of Sound. Among the collection’s bonus material is a previously unreleased version of LP track “Beware My Love” featuring Led Zeppelins own John Bonham handling the drumming duties. Premiered during a Twitter Q&A with Macca, the long-lost take includes an especially hard-hitting bridge courtesy of Bonham’s percussive prowess.

Listen in below via Twitter’s new audio card feature, or here.

.@raisingbiz Yes indeed! And heres the world premiere of it featuring John Bonham on drums: #Wings #askPaul

In the same Twitter Q&A, McCartney also discussed Foo Fighters’ new single “Something From Nothing”, professed his love of Kanye West and Jay Z’s live show, and, addressed the serious topic of whether or not he is actually a cyborg (kudos to Ryan Adams for the probing question).

Taylor Swift Welcome To New York
Oct 20, 2014 3:31pm | StereoGum

Taylor Swift has unveiled the third song from her upcoming new record, 1989. “Welcome To New York” follows in the footsteps of the recently released “Out Of The Woods” and lead single “Shake It Off.” The song was produced and co-written by OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder. “I wanted to start the album with this song because New York has been an important landscape and location for the story of my life for the last couple of years,” Swift said in an introductory video. “The inspiration that I found in that city is kind of hard to describe and hard to compare to any other force of inspiration I’ve ever experienced in my life. It’s like an electric city. I approached moving there with such wide-eyed optimism and sort of saw it as a place of endless potential and possibilities and you can kind of hear that reflected in this music and this first song especially.” The track is set to be officially released tonight at midnight, but it’s leaked a little early. Listen below.

The Weeknd King Of The Fall (Remix) (Feat. Ty Dolla $ign & Belly)
Oct 20, 2014 3:18pm | StereoGum

The Weeknd hasn’t released anything other than a handful of spare songs this year, and yet his star continues to grow; he filled arenas on both coasts earlier this year. And after dropping his “Often” remix, with Schoolboy Q and Rick Ross, he’s got a new version of his song “King Of The Fall.” Abel Tesfaye previously appeared on a remix of Ty Dolla $ign’s “Or Nah,” and the Stevie Wonder of ratchet music returns the favor here. Also on board: An Ottawa rapper named Belly, who apparently is a big deal in Canada. Listen to the remix below.

Song : CHVRCHES : Get Away
Oct 20, 2014 3:13pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

BBC radio’s Zane Lowe has recently undertaken the lofty task of giving an alternate take to the impeccable Drive Soundtrack called Radio One Rescores: Drive Curated By Zane Lowe. While we in no way believe that the original is in need of being redone, it does bring the opportunity to hear new stuff from the likes of Foals, SBTRKT, BANKS, Jon Hopkins, among others, and this song from CHVRCHES titled “Get Away”. While it doesn’t have some of the soaring moments of some of the songs on their debut, it still is always nice to have a new tune from the Glasgow trio. Stream below.

Saintseneca Passionate Kisses (Lucinda Williams Cover) (Stereogum Premiere)
Oct 20, 2014 2:44pm | StereoGum

Earlier this year Saintseneca released their excellent ANTI- debut Dark Arc, an album that found the Ohio folk-punks reaching new creative heights. Now the band has shared a cover of “Passionate Kisses,” penned by Lucinda Williams and made famous by Mary Chapin Carpenter. The confident jangle and robust arrangement shows how much of a full-fledged rock band they’ve become since their days stomping floorboards, but Zac Little’s trembling tenor remains unmistakable and haunting. Listen below.


Chvrches Get Away
Oct 20, 2014 2:34pm | StereoGum

The movie Drive is only three years old, and its soundtrack is magnificent; it’s arguably the best thing about the entire movie. But BBC radio host Zane Lowe has taken on the strange, difficult endeavor of improving, or at least competing against, that original soundtrack. Lowe has put together a whole new soundtrack to the movie, one that features big names like Foals, SBTRKT, Baauer, Jon Hopkins, BANKS, and the 1975. All of them are putting together new music for the project, ambitiously titled Radio One Rescues: Drive – Curated By Zane Lowe. Chvrches have contributed the new song “Get Away,” a warm, streaked ’80s-style synthpop cut that probably could’ve fit just fine on the original soundtrack, even if it’s not quite as chilly as the songs that made the cut. It’s the first new Chvrches song in a while, and you can hear it, and check out a trailer for the project, below.

Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack receives cassette release
Oct 20, 2014 2:24pm | Fact Magazine

Guardians of the Galaxy OST gets a no-brainer cassette release" width="685" height="371" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-233543" />

Awesome Mix, Vol. 1, as originally intended.

The year’s biggest no-brainer right after that Dancing Groot toy was a tape release for the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack. The soundtrack features ’70s hits by David Bowie, the Jackson 5 and Blue Swede, and plays a major part in the Marvel blockbuster.

The soundtrack will be issued on cassette on November 17; previously, it was released on CD, digital, and Mondo vinyl LP. The tape will be exclusive to Record Store Day retailers through the end of the year.

The Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack spent two weeks atop the Billboard 200 chart, good for the tenth largest selling album of 2014. [via Billboard]

CHVRCHES contribute new song Get Away to reworking of Drive soundtrack  listen
Oct 20, 2014 2:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound

CHVRCHES have been touring relentlessly in support of their 2013 debut album, The Bones of What You Believe. Despite their arduous schedule, the Scottish synthpop trio have still found time to write new material: They debuted a track  titled either “Richard Pryor”, “Gene” Wilder”, or “Eddie Murphy” during their performance at Austin City Limits earlier this month. Today, meanwhile, they’ve unveiled another new composition, “Get Away”, which is part of a forthcoming reworking of the 2011 soundtrack to Drive.

Part of a project curated by BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe which has received approval from the film’s director, Nicolas Winding Refn “Get Away” will join other new, original music contributions from acts like SBTRKT, Foals, Jon Hopkins, Banks, Laura Mvula, and more. The film and its new score will air on BBC 3 on Thursday, October 30th at 10 p.m. GMT.

Speaking to Lowe, CHVRCHES’s frontwoman Lauren Mayberry said of the song, “We were really excited because musically, the kind of music in the original score fits in with what we are doing.” Featuring a vibrant synth backbone and an undulating vocal sample, “Get Away” rivals any of the band’s previous releases with an affecting chorus and darkly-shaded but still infectious atmosphere. It captures the hazy moodiness of the original...
