During an interview with author Bret Easton Ellis for his podcast, Passion Pit frontman Michael Angelakos came out as gay. The 28-year-old musician also discussed his marriage and divorce with stylist Kirsty Mucci, being bi-polar and his self-loathing.

“Specifically with my sexuality, it was just, unlike bipolar, ‘Don’t get help. Don’t talk to anyone,’” he said. “I lived in such a straight group of people. Not like anyone wasn’t going to be understanding, it was not the time.” Easton asked him to clarify whether he meant the music or college scene. “Kind of both. This was dudes in bands talking about girls. It was just so easy at the time to talk about girls. I just kept writing about them. It was like the music was then again informing … I was going through so many difficult issues with girls in general that when I started dating my wife she just quieted them so much so. She was such a good friend. It became kind of a non-issue.”

Passion Pit has three studio albums thus far, with the latest, Kindred, released earlier this year. The indietronica band’s biggest hit to date is “Take a Walk” off the sophomore LP, Gossamer. It charted on Billboard’s Hot 100, adult contemporary, alternative and rock charts.

Check out the video below, along with his interview. The most interesting bits begin at the 49:00 minute mark. Actually, the entire chat is quite fascinating. Definitely check it out if you have time.

Yaz’s new wave hit, “Only You,” doesn’t immediately come to mind when one mentions Christmas songs. After hearing Kylie Minogue’s cover of the 80s ballad, though, it just might become your new holiday favorite.

The 47-year-old Aussie recorded the track with James Corden for her Christmas album, Kylie Christmas. With The Late Late Show host on board, it’s easy to assume that their rendition might take a comedic turn. Instead, they take the already-beautiful classic to an even more tender place.

Check out the lyric video below. Hopefully, an official video is also on the way. I’d love to see this duo have a festive fun time.

When it comes to Purpose, I’m starting to sound like a broken record. It’s been nothing but praise from the get-go. I can’t help it. Everything Justin Bieber has shared so far, “What Do You Mean,” “Sorry” and “I’ll Show You,” has been fantastic.

“My new record is about growing, being in touch with yourself. What can I say, it’s life experiences, and knowing that you can and get back up and keep going” – Justin Bieber via USA Today

The 21-year-old continues with his winning streak by sharing a trio of new tracks off his fourth studio album, which is available November 13. My favorite among the bunch is the Ed Sheeran-penned “Love Yourself.” It’s just Bieber’s voice on display over an acoustic guitar arrangement. The Halsey-assisted “The Feeling” is also great.

Picking the next single to release will be a difficult one. Check out both tracks, along with “Madly In Love” below.

I’m curious exactly who on their team pitched the idea to pay homage to the iconic disco flick, Saturday Night Fever, because I love it. Take That do an excellent job channeling John Travolta’s swagger as they strut down the street. And don’t even get me started on the outfits. Even though they’re definitely a throwback, I could wear some of the retro-inspired ensembles today. I’m obsessed with Gary Barlow’s tropical shirt.

Hey Boy” is the latest track off the British group’s seventh studio album, III, released last year. So far, it’s their best-charting single of the LP since the lead cut, “These Days,” which topped the UK chart.

Check out their latest clip below where the now three-man band visit an underground club furnished with a disco ball and lit dance floor. Looks like a fun time was had by all.

Covering Amy Winehouse isn’t new for Sam Smith. The 23-year-old Brit has covered “Tears Dry On Their Own” numerous times in the past. For the re-release of his Grammy-winning debut album, In The Lonely Hour (Drowning Shadows Edition), Smith decided to take on another classic Amy tune. It’s one of the new tracks featured on his new LP.

Sam debuted his rendition of “Love Is A Losing Game” on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show Friday. “That lyric–love is a losing game–is possibly one of the most relatable lyrics that I’ve ever heard,” he told Mac about why it felt right to cover this track. Check out his beautiful take below.

English drum and bass duo Sigma drop their debut album, Life, in December. They’ve already shared a few killer tracks including “Changing” and “Glitterball” featuring vocals from Paloma Faith and Ella Henderson respectively. Another well-known artist has been enlisted for their latest offering, “Coming Home.”

Rita Ora might not be the first name that comes to mind when you think of drum and bass, but the 24-year-old artist actually got her break in the genre. She appeared on DJ Fresh’s 2012 UK chart-topper “Hot Right Now.” She’s now come full circle with “Coming Home.”

For the accompanying clip, Ora frolics through the countryside with Sigma and a bunch of friends. They cap off the day outdoors by having a cozy dinner together and watching a fireworks show afterward. The visual is definitely going for a holiday-type vibe. Wise considering Christmas is approaching real fast. Check it out below.

Hollow” is the lead cut off the re-issue of her debut album, Unbreakable Smile. The emotional mid-tempo track, featuring infectious foot-stomping and finger-snapping beats, has massive potential to become a huge hit. Love me some Tori Kelly, and hope she can segue from underrated artist to bona fide pop star.

Given the raw nature of the lyrics, the 22-year-old wisely chose to film the video in a sparsely decorated house. Kelly looks sensational as she maneuvers through the rooms with very flattering lighting. Seriously though, the way the light catches her face is striking. Check out the beautifully-shot visual below.

Sia Enlists Karate Kid For ‘Alive’ Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

No, not THE Karate Kid of the Ralph Macchio variety. Rather it’s an adorable Asian girl serving up a fierce tutorial in martial arts at some abandoned warehouse. I’m just glad Sia decided to retire Maddie Ziegler. As fantastic of a dancer Ziegler is, it was time to let another bewigged child shine in a Sia clip.

Speaking of casting things aside, I hope the two-toned wig isn’t going to make an appearance in everything released during her This Is Acting era. I’m already sick of it.

The 39-year-old Aussie finally unveiled the music video for her Adele-rejected single “Alive.” I was beginning to think she abandoned the single since she recently debuted her far-superior, IMHO, single, “Bird Set Free.”

Given the relatively simple nature of the visual, I’m not sure exactly why it took so long. The delay certainly hindered the track’s chart and sales performance. Check out the video below.
