Linkin Park has now released an official music video for Good Goodbye; their latest single that dropped early last month. The video adds intro music very similar to that of the Stranger Things title sequence, as well as being shot in an similar 1980s sci-fi movie look with neon red/pink bleeding edges. The video combines Mortal Kombat with NBA Jam in a supernatural life-or-death basketball competition where NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar serves as judge and executioner. Pusha T and Stormzy from the single also make appearances in the video. The rest of the album One More Light is out May 19.
In a surprise release, Foster the People have returned with three brand new tracks. All three come from the group’s forthcoming third record, which is due out this summer .This is the first new music from the group since their 2014 album Supermodel. Feels good to hear some new Foster the People! While none of the songs are as catchy or going to blow the radio up like Pumped Up Kicks, they are still pretty good. I would have to rank them as: SHC > Pay The Man > Doing It for the Money.
Check out the new songs below and let us know what you think!
The duo of last year’s beer pong anthem Pong Dance is back! This time Vigiland is taking over the repeat button on your Friday nights. With a very similar target audience to that of Pong Dance, their 2014 hit Shots and Squats has been their most successful hit to date.
Update May 11: Vigiland has now released the music video for Friday Night:
DJ Khaled recruits an all-star guest list of artists for his lead single “I’m The One” off his forthcoming studio album Grateful. The song was just released as well as the video. Everyone kills it, this one will definitely be one for the summer. Happy Friday! 🙂
In Febuary, we posted Heavy ft. Kiiara; Linkin Park’s first single off their upcoming album One More Light. After that, Battle Symphony dropped in March. Now LP’s shaking things up again; enlisting Pusha T and Stomrzy for a new rock/rap collaboration that’s sure to please those old Fort Minor fans out there. English rapper Stormzy gives the song’s second half a bit of that Tinie Tempah feel. The new album’s due to drop May 19.
Oh Wonder surprised many with a new track last week called Ultralife. It’s their first track since their 2015 self-titled debut album and they haven’t missed a beat. They are classified as alt-pop and this track has some really cool melodies, organic percussion, synths and major key pianos that play together really well. They were a revelation in 2015 and we are hoping they continue to blow up in 2017!
Queue up the summer playlist! This one will probably get old quick as it’s going to be played nonstop on the radio and every summer bbq and get-together. Calvin Harris just makes hits and recruits some big names for this one, notably Ariana Grande and Pharrell. It’s going to be hard to top “Slide” for me, but this one is pretty good too.
Blink has decided to put out an extended/super edition of their 2016 album California and as part of that, there will be 12 (!!) new songs. The band showed off the song Misery last week and it’s great. Classic Blink 182. Looking forward to the extended version of the album on May 19
Bleachers are back with their first song in awhile, called Don’t Take The Money. It will be the first single of their sophomore album to be released later this year. This track was written with Lorde, who also has backing vocals on the song. Bleachers is led by Jack Antonoff, who was part of the group Fun and helped write Lorde’s album Melodrama. This is a super catchy and fun song and we are excited for more Bleachers later this year.
I’ve been a big alt-J fan for awhile now, with their first album An Awesome Wave having so many great songs like Tessellate, Breezeblocks, Fitzpleasure, and Taro (my personal fav). Their follow up album This Is All Yours in 2014 was also solid but not as great as their debut album in my opinion. After over two years, we are finally hearing some new music from the British group. Their new song In Cold Blood features much of the same, with experimental sounds, funky beats and lyrics that really don’t make sense (?). But In Cold Blood is catchy and serves as a great first single for their upcoming 2017 album Relaxer due June 22
