Hear A Previously-Unreleased Duet Between Michael Jackson And Freddie Mercury

Queen At Live Aid

After sitting on the proverbial shelves for over 30 years, “There Must Be More to Life Than This,” an unreleased Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury duet recorded in 1983, has finally seen the light of the day. (How crazy is that? Jackson and Mercury were two of the world’s biggest pop stars; “Life” should have been a super-hit. It’s like holding off airing a TV show starring Bryan Cranston and Louis C.K. until they’re dead.) Versions of the collaboration have been available on YouTube and bootlegs for some time, but never in an official capacity, or with William Orbit’s production. Here you go.

Are Changes Coming to Sony and What Will They Mean for Artists Like Barbra Streisand and Adele?

Topline: Sony's Succession Plan

Sony Entertainment’s music division, which encompasses the 125-year-old Columbia Records along with labels RCA and Epic, is but a blip in the Tokyo-based electronic giant’s balance sheet — the company recorded overall revenue of $66.1 billion in 2013 but is anticipating a $2.15 billion loss for the fiscal year ending in March. But with such superstar acts as Bruce Springsteen, Barbra Streisand, Adele and Justin Timberlake on its roster, and a market share of 27.5 percent so far this year, it’s one that has eyes peering toward the top of 550 Madison, where Doug Morris, soon to turn 76, sits perched as Sony Music CEO three-and-a-half years into a four-year contract.

Iceage Share New Song

The upcoming album from Copenhagen’s Iceage finds them edging further away from their clangorous punk rock roots, as exhibited on the singles “Forever” and “The Lord’s Favorite”. (The latter of which was accompanied by one of the best and funniest videos of the year.) Now, Iceage have shared another Plowing Into the Field of Love cut, “How Many”. Listen below. A live recording of the song appeared on last year’s Dokument #1 compilation. Read the rest of this page »

James Blake Shares a New Track and an “International Players Anthem” Mashup

James Blake has become something of a regular on BBC Radio 1, and his guest sets have so far tended to be fruitful. Last night’s turn was no exception: between songs by the likes of ArcaFlying Lotus and Travis $cott, Blake formally debuted “200 Press,” a new deconstructed dance track that he had previously slipped into a set in an unfinished form. He also played a new drawn-out and tottering mash-up of Outkast and UGK‘s “International Players Anthem” and “Pembroke,” one of his collaborations with Airhead. The whole show can be streamed here; or, jump to 46:20 for “200 Press” and 20:30 for “International Pembroke Anthem.”

David Bowie to release new album 'soon', says producer Tony Visconti

David Bowie is set to release a brand new album ‘soon’, according to his long-time producer Tony Visconti.

“There’s gonna be another album, definitely… soon,” said Visconti, writes CNN. When asked if Bowie would be touring in support of the new release, Visconti commented: “I don’t think he’s gonna busk in the tube… on the Underground. As far as a concert is concerned I have no idea. He clearly didn’t promote ‘The Next Day’ with a concert and whether he does for the next one I don’t know and I couldn’t predict that – it’s up to him. It’s whatever takes his fancy.” Read the rest of this page »
