Lana Del Rey Debuts New Track ‘West Coast’

In: Donovan, Music

Lana Del Rey performed her new single for the first time at Coachella this weekend. On Monday morning, the 27-year-old chanteuse released the official audio for “West Coast,” the first cut off her forthcoming album Ultraviolence. The track was co-written by Rick Nowels and Lana herself with Dan Auerbach on producing duties.

The guitar-driven track is slinky and less moody than her previous offerings. Her smoky vocals are sublime. “West Coast” includes references from Quentin Tarantino, Stevie Nicks and the New Radicals. I’m loving the ‘ooh baby, ooh baby’ homage from “Edge of Seventeen.” Give the track a listen below which features Del Rey and some dude frolicking at a beach on a loop.

Well, the moment’s arrived: White Party Palm Springs’ Talent is revealed! And, I can’t WAIT to get down there!

The biggest name of all for me is definitely G.R.L.. A newer name to the scene I’m currently OBSESSED with their song Ugly Heart and they’re blowing up the charts right now with their featured performance on Pitbull‘s Wild Wild Love single. While I would never touch the man sexually, he himself seems to have the Midas touch these days and everything and everyone he attaches to turns to gold and these ladies are no exception. The all-girl band was formed by Homorazzi’s ever-loved Pussycat Dolls’ Robin Antin and includes a collection of 5 talented girls from America, Britain and even our home up here in Canada. Covering all their bases they’re looking to rock out the Sunday T-Dance which was dominated last year by Icona Pop and I’m sure G.R.L. will be able to fill the big stilettos left by those babes (WHOM I got a kiss from, just sayin’!).

pharrell-williams-coachella

Out of all the videos I’ve seen of this year’s Coachella performances, Pharrell’s set is the one that has me jealous I wasn’t there to witness it live. The 41-year-old put on a fantastic hour-long show featuring some big cameos.

Long before his massive 2013 year, Williams was one half of the Neptunes who were responsible for churning out huge hits in the mid-90s. Some of those who scored hits due to Pharrell’s genius returned the favor and made surprise cameos during his set.

Nelly set the crowd in a tizzy with “Hot In Herre” as did Snoop Dogg for “Drop It Like It’s Hot.” Busta Rhymes and Puff Daddy also dropped by to revisit “Pass the Courvoisier Pt. 2.” The biggest surprise, and my favorite, Gwen Stefani belted out “Hollaback Girl.” In Pharrell’s words, Stefani is the most “awesome, rad girl in the world.” She’s simply the queen. Check out the entire set below.

Rising Artist Spotlight: The Vamps

At first glance they look like another One Direction ripoff. To be fair, it’s kinda true. After all, they are a boy band from the United Kingdom. However, if I were to compare them to another boy band, I would say they’re a mix of Hanson and McFly.

“Being compared to One Direction is no bad thing but we are a completely different band.” – Brad Simpson

Simpson, James McVey, Connor Ball and Tristan Evans, better known as The Vamps, have scored a couple of hits in their native country. With their latest, “Move My Way,” they’re primed to crossover to North America. It’s by far my favorite among the singles they’ve released. It’s thoroughly pop but with a folk sensibility, like most things these days. Give it a spin below, along with their previous music videos.

Sorry UK Lovers, Kylie Minogue is jumping ship. The diminutive singer announced she’s leaving The Voice and won’t return for Series 4. She cites the timing of her tour as the reason why. I wonder if the fact she placed last among her other mentors factored in her decision.

“#Lovers, due to timing of my tour I won’t be back next season for The Voice UK???? Thanks to all who supported! Hope to see you on my KMO tour!” - Kylie Minogue

Will “Raging Fire” reach the heights of “Home?” Most probably not, but Phillip Phillips has a future hit on his hands. “Raging Fire” earned Billboard’s “Greatest Gainer” designation in terms of airplay on Adult Top 40 earlier this week. What better time to premiere the accompanying music video.

Phillips stays in his folk-rock lane for the lead cut off his sophomore album, Behind The Light. The Season 11 American Idol winner heads to the Windy City to film the clip. In between all the close-up shots of the 23-year-old playing on his guitar in front of numerous Chicago backdrops, he lays down on a huge sheet paper as people paint all over him. My only complaint is that he’s not shirtless. If you’re going to be a canvas, you might as well be a blank one, right? Check out the clip below.

Katy Perry Premieres Sweet ‘Birthday’ Lyric Clip

After a slight misstep with “Unconditionally” which was her lowest charting single since 2009, Katy Perry returned to the top of the charts with “Dark Horse.” The 29-year-old singer hopes to continue that streak with her official fourth single off Prism.

Perry just released the lyric video for “Birthday.” Fittingly enough, it features plenty of celebratory cakes and other baked goods. I don’t have a sweet tooth but after watching it, I find myself craving a cupcake. I wonder what they did with all those tasty treats. Papa want ;)

Check out the cute clip below which was produced by Mandy Sellick and directed by Aya Tanimura.

Listen To Michael Jackson’s Xscape

When Michael Jackson passed away in 2009, he left behind several unreleased recordings. This May eight of them are being “contemporized” and compiled for a new album titled XSCAPE, in stores this May. The project is being overseen by LA Reid and Timbaland. They’ll be joined by several other producers including Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome “Jroc” Harmon and John McClain.

The title track, produced by Jerkins, has surfaced online. Reportedly, it’s from MJ’s Invincible era. After giving it a spin, it certainly seems like he recorded it for that album. So much so, I’m not sure how much Jerkins “contemporized” it. It’s classic Michael with his signature grunts and moans. Give it a listen below.
