The Edge becomes first rock musician ever to perform inside the Sistine Chapel

If you cant go where the streets have no name, you might as well go where no other rock star has gone before. On Saturday, that logic apparently led U2 guitarist The Edge to become the first rock musician to ever play the Vatican. And he did it in the grandest, most U2 way possible, performing inside the Sistine Chapel alongside an Irish choir.

Standing in the corner of the Chapel, with Michelangelo’s famed ceiling fresco above him, The Edge performed before roughly 200 members of Cellular Horizons, a conference on regenerative medicine that took place at the Vatican over the weekend. The guitarist took his history-making turn in stride, even throwing in a joke about Bono: When they asked me if I wanted to become the first contemporary artist to play in the Sistene Chapel, I didnt know what to say because usually theres this other guy who sings.

The Edge has long been known as a fan of reverb, so he was probably losing his mind from the moment he strummed the first chord of his all-acoustic set inside the expansive 15th-century chapel. The set included a cover of Leonard Cohens If It Be Your Will as well as U2’s own “Yahweh,” “Ordinary Love,” and “Walk On,” as well as a cover of Leonard Cohen’s “If It Be Your Will.”

Check out some fan videos below, which are probably illegal because as anyone whos ever been hassled by Vatican se...



James Blakes confirms next album title, debuts new artwork on billboard
May 2, 2016 6:35pm | Fact Magazine

The electronic singer/songwriter’s long-awaited new album has a title.

James Blake’s third album will be titled The Colour In Anything. After sharing images of a mural featuring the title last week, a new billboard in Brooklyn places Blake’s name right alongside the phrase and new artwork.

The billboard was spotted in Williamsburg at N 15th and Banker, Pitchfork points out. The design shares a similar colour washed style to the previous mural which featured art by Roald Dahl’s famous illustrator Sir Quentin Blake.

Little information about Blake’s next LP is known, other than it’s finished and one of the songs is 24-minutes long.

Take a look at the new artwork and revisit Blake’s recent single ‘Timeless’ below

Swizz Beatz says new DMX album features Kanye West and Dr. Dre
May 2, 2016 4:17pm | Fact Magazine

Will this be the most exciting collection material from DMX in a decade?

DMX is reportedly working on a comeback album sorts and, according to Swizz Beatz, it will have contributions from Dr. Dre and Kanye West. (And, perhaps, Swizz’s son Egypt?)

X’s last official album was 2012’s underwhelming Undisputed, but it’s been almost ten years since he’s put out anything substantial. (It should be noted that Swizz quibbled over the authenticity of last year’s Redemption of the Beast.)

Aside from these interesting collabs – it’ll be his first time ever working with Dre; X and West haven’t worked together since 2003’s Dogs Out, a truly bizarre confluence of both artists’ styles that still totally works – this is good news for DMX fans. Earlier this year, it was reported that the Yonkers rapper was found not breathing at a Ramada Inn in his hometown after an alleged overdose.

DMX’s classic ‘How’s It Going Down?’ was interpolated on Drake’s brand new album Views. Check out our breakdown of that, X’s ‘What These Bitches Want?’ and the other samples on the album.

I am truly ultra proud of the steps my bro...


M.I.A. says her last album is finished, but she cant tour the US
May 2, 2016 4:04pm | Fact Magazine

The singer suggests visa issues may delay the album.

The album that M.I.A. has been teasing for over a year with videos, singles and demos is finally finished. The singer shared the news on Twitter, but explained that the release is somewhat out of her hands.

“I am handing my last LP in to my American label this week. It’ll be up to them if its released. I don’t have visa 4 states to promote or spk!,” she wrote in a tweet saying she will not be able to tour the US as of now.

“Can’t tour the US without a visa — might have to start writing songs 4 DJ Khaled and Selene [sic] Gomez to get heard,” she wrote after.

M.I.A. has had no lack of new songs recently, but it’s unclear which, if any, will appear on her new album. She’s released one-off singles with music videos including ‘Borders’ and last month’s ‘Rewear It’. She’s also dropped tracks in a more off-the-cuff manner including the recent Lion King-sampling ‘MIA OLA’.

I am handing my last LP in to my American label this week. It'll be up to them if its released.I don't have visa 4 states to promote or spk!

Terrence Malicks Voyage of Time finally receives a release date
May 2, 2016 3:40pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Now that this year’s mildly disappointing Knight of Cups has drifted slowly behind him (and most filmgoers), director Terrence Malick has turned his attention toward the half dozen projects he has left to sort out. One of them is the long, long, long gestating Voyage of Time documentary that has been soaking in the proverbial ether for decades.

As The Playlist points out, a recent press release by IMAX has the film set to hit screens on October 7th of this year, which means we’ll at least be seeing one of the film’s two cuts — the 40-minute IMAX edit featuring Brad Pitts narration. However, it remains to be seen when we’ll catch the 35mm feature length version with Cate Blanchetts narration.

Here’s the official synopsis:

VOYAGE OF TIME is a celebration of the universe, displaying the whole of time, from its start to its final collapse. This film examines all that occurred to prepare the world that stands before us now: science and spirit, birth and death, the grand cosmos and the minute life systems of our planet. 

Recent Oscar winner Ennio Morricone hopped on board last fall to score the film, reuniting with the director for the first time since their 1978 collaboration on Days of Heaven.

For a taste of what to expect, revisit the documentary’s partial inclusion in Malick’s 2011 tour de force, The Tree of Life....
