Some longtime viewers of American Horror Story have taken issue with Ryan Murphy changing the show’s theme music for Freak Show. Turns out there’s a reason why.

Season 3 Voice standout Melanie Martinez released her debut EP earlier this year. One track featured on the well-received offering was “Carousel.” Being a fan of the show, Martinez reached out to the show’s producers about using her spooky gypsy-sounding track once she heard of the upcoming theme. A couple of days before the promo aired, the network finally reached out to her. Naturally, she was ecstatic “The whole thing was just crazy,” she told HuffPo.

Melanie just released the accompanying visual for “Carousel.” Naturally it’s set in a carnival environment filled with all things spooky. Directed by Adam Donald, Melanie chases a buff blond guy who ends up deceiving her. Though the clip and beat have an eerie feel, the lyrics are quite sad, comparing the search for true love to going round and round aimlessly on a carousel. Give the entertaining visual a watch below.

Idina Menzel Releases Trailer For New Christmas Album

In: Donovan, Music
idina-menzel-holiday-wishes

Idina Menzel releasing a Christmas album might be odd to some. After all, the 43-year-old entertainer’s parents divorced during the holidays and she’s Jewish. When asked about the latter by Time Magazine, she replied, if Babs can do it, so can she.

“Most of them were songs that I’ve always wanted to sing. “Do You Hear What I Hear?” is a song Whitney Houston sang back in the ‘80s. Her version is incredible. I’ve always loved that song. If Barbra Streisand can make a Christmas album, I can.” – Idina Menzel

Halloween hasn’t passed yet, but Holiday Wishes is already in stores. Even Menzel thinks it’s too early. Clearly her fans agree as well. It’s pacing to sell only around 18-21,000 copies in its first week of release. I don’t blame her label for jumping the gun though. Holiday-themed albums can be quite lucrative. And if done well, can generate revenue every year during the Yuletide season.

Idina takes on such classics like “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” “Do You Hear What I Hear,” and “Baby It’s Cold Outside” to name a few on the festive LP. Michael Buble duets with her on the later. Give the album teaser a listen below. If you love Idina’s voice, this is a must for this Christmas.

jess-glynne-real-love

A grave wrong has finally been made right. When Clean Bandit revealed their latest collaboration, “Real Love,” with Jess Glynne, many, including myself, hoped it would be a cover of the classic Mary J. Blige track. Alas, it was an original composition. Thankfully, Glynne heard her fans’ outcry.

The 24-year-old English singer-songwriter delivers an acoustic cover of “Real Love” for BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. Her gravely voice really shines during the performance. She does the What’s The 411? single justice. Mary would be proud. Give it a listen below.

nicole-scherzinger-big-fat-lie

Nicole Scherzinger’s long-awaited sophomore album drops in the UK next week on October 20. Big Fat Lie is a bit of a departure from her pop dance-ready debut Killer Love. Tricky Stewart and The Dream produced the entire album which features the 36-year-old taking a more mellower approach.

I gotta say, I kinda like it. Previously released tracks “On The Rocks” and “God Of War” remain favorites, while “Electric Blue” featuring T.I. and “Heartbreaker” sound promising.

Fans of Scherzy’s more upbeat fare, fear not. Nicole previously stated the US release of Big Fat Lie, due out in Spring 2015, would feature a slightly different tracklist. “Our club is different in America. I feel like the club here (UK) is more dance and the club in America is a little more R&B and hip-hop,” she said in an interview with Graham Norton.

Check out an album sampler of Big Fat Lie below and weigh in on which tracks are your favorite. If none of them please you, sound off about that as well.

nick-jonas-teacher-wilderness

Nick Jonas is certainly a fan of one-word song titles. “Chains,” “Jealous,” and “Numb” are tracks that have surfaced online from his forthcoming self-titled album. “Teacher” and “Wilderness” are two new tracks also sporting only one word. Just like their predecessors, these new offerings are quite good.

On “Teacher,” class is in session. The youngest Jonas tries to instruct his lover how to love properly. “When you act like this, it’s like your momma never told you how to love. So let me teach you,” he croons on the 80s disco-tinged track.

Continuing the sexual theme, Nick sings about taking it back to basics and getting naked on “Wilderness.” He longs to get all savage on the pop track. Yes please!!!

It appears Nick’s fans are warming up to his new R&B sound. The second single “Jealous” is officially a Top 40 track on the Billboard Hot 100 and shows no signs of slowing down. Clearly, not reuniting with his brothers was a wise career move. This older, buff and urban Jonas is one I can get behind of ;) Give his new tracks a listen below and weigh in on which of the two is catchier. My vote is for “Teacher.”

Bette Midler Pays Tribute To Girl Groups On New Album

In: Donovan, Music
bette-midler-its-the-girls

The legends are certainly representing this year. Barbra Streisand released her Partners LP to much success. Tony Bennett teamed up with Lady Gaga for a new album which also hit the top of the charts. Aretha Franklin is also getting in the game with Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics, due out October 21.

Bette Midler is taking a similar approach to Franklin, but instead of paying homage to divas, the Divine Miss M is putting girl groups in the spotlight. It’s The Girls hits stores on November 4 and it’s her first album in eight years.

The 68-year-old icon covers classics made famous by The Shirelles, The Supremes and Martha and the Vandellas to name a few. For the most part, the acts she’s chosen are pretty old school with exception to TLC which is by far the most contemporary. Too bad, she didn’t include Destiny’s Child or Spice Girls in the mix.

The first track off the LP has been released. Bette covers The Ronettes‘ ’60s classic “Be My Baby.” Overall, it’s a pretty faithful rendition. Give it a listen below.

kesha-dr-luke-lawsuits

It’s no secret that Kesha and longtime producer Dr. Luke have a strained relationship. By the looks of it, it’s not going to get better anytime in the near future. Earlier today, the “Tik Tok” singer filed a lawsuit against Dr. Luke. Hours later, he filed a countersuit against his former protégé.

Kesha alleges Dr. Luke was abusive from the get-go after signing her when she was 18. She claims he made repeated sexual advances toward her, and forced her to use drugs and alcohol. She points to one specific occasion where she woke up naked in Dr. Luke’s bed, sore, sick after taking ‘sober pills’ he gave her. Kesha also cites physical abuse in her lawsuit.

She is asking a judge to let her out of her contract with Luke. Her lawyer Mark Geragos spoke to TMZ.
