Lady Gaga teases Tame Impala collaboration
May 22, 2016 11:35pm | Cosequence Of Sound

At this year’s Golden Globe Awards, Lady Gaga teased the release of a new studio album in 2016. While little is known about the follow-up to 2013’s ARTPOP, it’s possible the record could feature a collaboration with Tame Impala‘s Kevin Parker.

On Sunday, Mark Ronson shared an Instagram photo of Gaga in the studio with Parker. Ronson captioned the photo writing only, “Illusion”.

In addition to Ronson and Parker, producer Bloodpop (fka Blood Diamonds) also apparently joined Gaga in studio. It’s a dynamic group for sure, as Ronson and Parker previously teamed up on the song “Daffodils”. Bloodpop recently co-produced Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” as well as Grimes’ “Go”.

In the years since ARTPOP, Gaga teamed with Tony Bennett for the collaborative LP Cheek to Cheek. She’s also delivered a series of live performances that all but broke the Internet, including a tribute to David Bowie at the Grammys, a jaw-dropping rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner at the Super Bowl, and one hell of a performance of “Till it Happens to You” at the Academy Awards.




Madonna, Stevie Wonder, Questlove pay tribute to Prince at the Billboard Music Awards watch
May 22, 2016 11:25pm | Cosequence Of Sound

The finale of the 2016 Billboard Music Awards was dedicated to honoring the late, great Prince.

Before the performance section, Questlove came out wearing Prince’s iconic symbol on his lapel to deliver a moving speech about the Purple Paragon. “No matter what kind of music we make, no matter how long we’ve made it, no matter our race, our color, our creed, our sexual orientation, all of us live in the land of music,” he began. “And his departure from it was an earthquake.” He went on to talk about the legacy Prince left behind before calling for a moment of silence. “It can be a moment of silence here in the air, but inside of our heads, it should be anything but silence.”

As the lights in Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena turned to purple, Madonna appeared on the stage. Wearing a shining purple patterned suit with white lace, Madge sat upon a throne of purple velvet in front of a giant purple screen. She performed an intimate rendition of “Nothing Compares 2 U” accompanied by a small string section and two keyboardists. At the end of the song, Stevie Wonder walked out from side-stage to join Madonna in belting out “Purple Rain”. The crowd also joined in, singing along to the memorable chorus as they waved glowing purple wristbands in the air.

Watch Questlove’s touching speech below.

Adele premieres new video for Send My Love (To Your New Lover) watch
May 22, 2016 9:52pm | Cosequence Of Sound

The first two singles from Adeles 25 were the slow burning “Hello” and the heartbreaking ballad “When We Were Young”. While the album’s third single, “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)”, tackles the same sort of breakup themes as those past ones, it’s a far more danceable pop song.

As such, the video for the track, which debuted on Sunday evening during the Billboard Music Awards, is more vibrant than previous clips. Though the base is simply Adele wearing a flowery Dolce & Gabbana dress in front of a black backdrop, the British songstress is drenched in lights of changing colors as she dances and spins. By layering different shots from this scene over one another, the video ends up slightly trippy while also echoing the themes of being haunted by old lovers.

Kesha delivers stirring rendition of It Aint Me, Babe with Ben Fold at Billboard Music Awards watch
May 22, 2016 9:50pm | Cosequence Of Sound

For a while there, it looked like Kesha might not actually get to make her scheduled appearance at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards. Kemosabe Records originally blocked the performance when it was believed the singer was going to use the gig to bash Dr. Luke, the label owner/producer with whom Kesha’s currently embroiled in a messy legal battle. Thankfully, reason and truth prevailed, and Kesha took the stage on Sunday evening.

Accompanied by Ben Folds, Kesha performed a stirring cover of the Bob Dylan classic “It Ain’t Me, Babe”. Known largely for radio-friendly pop, Kesha’s delivery was stunning in its power. Slowed down and turned into a ballad, the pop singer’s version of the song kept the audience rapt. They cheered more than once — especially during the powerful transition into the final chorus — and stood for their ovation at the end.

To say Kesha has had a rough road as of late would be putting it mildly to the point of injustice. Though she’s barred from speaking out about her troubles on such a public stage, a strong performance like this one says plenty. Check it out above.

Update: The video originally posted of the performance has been pulled. Below, watch a preview while we wait for the full thing to officially come online.

Chance the Rappers Magnificent Coloring World turns Chicago warehouse into an insane carnival

Following the release of his new mixtape Coloring Book, Chance the Rapper took a select group of Chicagoans into a world of his own creation. Those lucky enough to grab tickets to the mysterious event met at a location in Chicago and hopped busses that transported them an undisclosed warehouse. Once inside, Chance and his crew surprised them with a massive play area featuring flashing lights, dancers, a live choir, and the colorful set from Donnie Trumpet & the Social Experiments Sunday Candy music video. Judging from the photos that popped up on social media throughout the event, board games, coloring activities, and a bounce house were also on hand for the kids (the event was all-ages).

Check out footage of Chance setting up the event below, and scroll down to see some of the highlights from social media.

Florence Welch surprises fan in hospice with private concert watch
May 22, 2016 5:25pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Florence and the Machine were in Austin for a concert last week, but not every fan was able to make it to the show. As Vulture reports, one teenaged fan had purchased tickets but couldnt attend to due to illness, so Florence Welch paid her a surprise visit at Hospice Austins Christopher House. The visit turned into a bit of a mini-concert, as Welch sang Dog Days Are Over and Shake It Out while her fan and a small crowd of visitors joined in on harmonies. Watch video from the private concert below.



Fleet Foxes Robin Pecknold answers questions about Father John Misty, new album in Reddit AMA
May 22, 2016 4:40pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Fleet Foxes frontman Robin Pecknold answered questions from fans during a recent Reddit AMA, commenting on everything from his relationship with former Fleet Foxes drummer Josh Tillman (aka Father John Misty) to why he opted for indie rock instead of music academia. Unsurprisingly, several fans also asked him about the forthcoming Fleet Foxes LP and follow-up to 2011s Helplessness Blues, which he announced on Instagram earlier this month. Pecknold revealed a bit about what that record might sound like and gave us a glimpse into his grooming habits (I dont use conditioner bruh). Check out some of the highlights from the AMA below.

On his relationship with Josh Tillman (aka Father John Misty):

Josh and I haven’t spoken since the end of touring HB and, to be honest, we didn’t really speak much for the two years before that either. We ended up going down different paths too soon before our touring and recording commitments were finished. Happy he’s doing his thing tho We had really gone separate roads by 2010 but remained in the project together to honor our recording and touring commitments and to not let any fans down who might be coming to our shows. I wish that things had gone differently. Making sure everyone involved is feeling good and that relations are strong is a big priority for me now.

On whether the new LP will depart from Fleet Foxes traditional sound:

I don’t want to change genres necessarily R...

Fred Armisen and Paul Simon promote Stranger to Stranger at the NY Auto Show watch
May 22, 2016 3:35pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Legendary songwriter Paul Simon is currently on the road promoting his forthcoming 13th solo studio album, Stranger to Stranger. Taking advantage of an event with obvious ties to Simon’s signature brand of folk rock, he and Fred Armisen stopped by the NY Auto Show to talk about the album and how it relates to cars. “Cars are great,” Armisen noted, speaking to Simon in front of a live audience of diehard auto enthusiasts. “I was sitting in the back seat of a car the first time I ever heard Elvis Presley,” Simon added, sagely.

It was all part of last night’s shockingly great SNL episode, which also featured an instantly classic skit and a musical performance for the ages by Courtney Barnett. But first, cars:
