Charli XCX and Christine and the Queens cover the 1975 during BBC Live Lounge gig

Charli XCX and Christine and the Queens are taking their partnership one step further.

On Thursday (Sept. 5), the duo joined forces for a performance on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. During their stint, the musicians played their recent collaboration “Gone” as well as a cover of the 1975’s “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME.”

The full performance can be streamed here, but if you’re more interested in the 1975 cover, fast-forward the audio to the nine-minute mark.

“Gone” is featured on Charli’s upcoming third full-length record. Charli is due out Sept. 13 through Atlantic Records. Pre-orders for the album are available here.

“Gone” joins a slew of previously released tracks including “1999” with Troye Sivan, “Warm” with HAIM, “Blame It on Your Love” with Lizzo, and “Cross You Out” with Sky Ferreira.

“TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME” is featured on the 1975’s critically-loved album A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships. Last month, the British band unleashed “People,” the first single off A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’ sister album, Notes on a Conditional Form.

In support of the impending release, Charli previously announced plans to embark on a massive fall tour. The Charli LIVE North American outing begins Sept. 20 at the Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta and concludes a month later on Oct. 22 at Terminal 5 in New York.

At the time of publication, a handful of shows were classified as sold out.

Lana Del Rey hints that new album could be out in “two months”

And just like that, we may have finally been given an official release time frame for Lana Del Rey’s much anticipated new studio album.

On Friday (June 21), the singer took the stage at Malahide Castle outside Dublin, Ireland for a show. During her set, she reportedly told the audience that her new album would be released in two months’ time.

For fans who have been keeping a close watch, this comes as great news. Up until this point, information about Norman Fucking Rockwell has been at best scarce at best. We had a title. We were treated to six songs (“How to Disappear,” “Venice Bitch,” “Hey Blue Baby,” “I Must Be Stupid for Feeling So Happy,” “Mariners Apartment Complex,” and “hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me…but I have it”). We knew that Jack Antonoff of Bleachers and fun. fame produced for the forthcoming release. All we were missing was an official release date.

While Del Rey did not further elaborate on the exact date, we can probably assume that it will be sometime in late August. Norman Fucking Rockwell will be the long-awaited the follow-up to 2017’s Lust for Life.

In addition to the release time frame reveal, Del Rey also performed her slowed down cover of Sublime’s “Doin’ Time” during the gig. Last month, she debuted her version of the 1997 track and revealed that it would be part of Sublime’s upcoming documentary “Sublime.”

“Not a day goes by that I don’t listen to at least one Sublime song,” Del Rey said about the band.

“They epitomized the SoCal vibe and made a genre and sound totally their own.”

Watch Del Rey’s fan-shot performance of “Doin’ Time” above which features her “girlies.”

Lana Del Rey goes California cool in her cover of Sublime’s ‘Doin’ Time’

It’s almost summertime, so we should expect Lana Del Rey to finally release her new studio album any day now. While we still don’t have an official  release date, Del Rey has given us a new summer jam to blast through our car speakers; her take on Sublime’s “Doin’ Time.”

On Friday (May 17), the New York-born singer unveiled the full cover of the 1996 reggae-infused tune. The full version of the track comes a week after she dropped a warped version of the audio on Instagram. The caption at the time read “coming soon.”

Del Rey’s version of “Doin’ Time” will appear in Sublime’s upcoming documentary “Sublime” which “outlines the history of the iconic California band.”

“Not a day goes by that I don’t listen to at least one Sublime song,” Del Rey said in a statement.

“They epitomized the SoCal vibe and made a genre and sound totally their own.”

Sublime’s Bud Gaugh adds: “We are so excited to be collaborating with Lana on this. The smoky, sexy, and iconic sound of her voice breathes new life into one of our favorite singles.”

Troy Dendekker, late singer Bradley Nowell’s widow, noted, “Lana’s cover of ‘Doin’ Time’ is magical and haunting. What an honor to have her talent complement the Sublime legacy.”

Listen to Del Rey’s cover of “Doin’ Time” above.

“Sublime” premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April to mixed reviews from critics. Directed by Bill Guttentag and produced by Interscope Films, the film follows the group’s rise to mainstream success and their subsequent fall following the death of Nowell in 1996.

As for Del Rey, her new studio album Norman Fucking Rockwell still does not have a release date. To date, she’s released a total of six singles; “How to Disappear,” “Venice Bitch,” “Hey Blue Baby,” “I Must Be Stupid for Feeling So Happy,” “Mariners Apartment Complex,” and “hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me…but I have it.”  In January, she also treated fans to a snippet of another new song titled “Happiness is a Butterfly.”

Listen: Gerard Way and Ray Toro join forces for ‘Happy Together’ cover

My Chemical Romance may or may not get back together one day, but until that time, fans have been a given a little treat for their jet black hearts. On Friday (Feb. 8) former bandmates Gerard Way and Ray Toro reunited for their second covers collaboration. This time around, the duo gave their own spin to the Turtles’ 1967 track, “Happy Together.” Listen to the collaboration above.

The “Happy Together” cover is the second song Way and Toro have collaborated on in the past month. Back in January, they surprised fans by recording their version of Simon and Garfunkel’s 1968 track, “A Hazy Shade of Winter” (can be seen above). The Simon and Garfunkel cover is predominately featured in the first full trailer for Netflix and Way’s upcoming series “The Umbrella Academy.”

As per the description that accompanies the songs, both tracks will be featured in the upcoming series which is set to premiere next Friday, Feb. 15, on the streaming giant.

The series will star Ellen Page, Robert Sheehan (“Misfits”), Tom Hopper (“Game of Thrones”), Emmy Raver-Lampman, David Castaneda, Aidan Gallagher, and Mary J. Blige.

Fans of Way’s music have had to wait some time for the musician to head back into the recording studio as he has been a little preoccupied with “The Umbrella Academy.” Late last year, Way promised fans new music and he delivered.

In October he released “Baby You’re a Haunted House” followed by “Getting Down the Germs” in November. In December, he paid homage to Christmas and one of Santa’s lesser-known reindeers with “Dasher.”

Watch: The 1975 cover Ariana Grande for Live Lounge

With their much-anticipated new album about to hit the streets, the 1975 are back with a little treat for their fans to hold them over until the end of the week. On Monday (Nov. 26), the British band took over BBC Radio 1 for their new Live Lounge session. During the show, the group performed several new tracks from the upcoming record including “Sincerity is Scary,” “It’s Not Living (If It’s Not with You),” and “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME.”

In between all the new music, the four-piece decided to add a cover to their setlist. As a bonus track, the group took on Ariana Grande’s surprise new single, “thank u, next.” Instead of going the way of poppy goodness that the original version of the insightful song leans on, the 1975 decided to make it more like them. Armed with harmonious backup singers to give it a gospel feel, the cover sounds like it could easily fit on any of the group’s previously released albums.

Watch the 1975 cover “thank u, next” above while the full set can be heard here.

The 1975’s new album, A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships, is due out this Friday, Nov. 30. To prepare fans for the album’s release, the quartet unveiled a string of listening parties scheduled to take place on Thursday, Nov. 29, throughout the country. The full list of upcoming listening parties can be found on Twitter.

As for Grande, “thank u, next” has now spent two weeks at the top spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. The chart-topping song has also landed at the top spot on the Digital Song Sales, On-Demand Streaming Songs, and Streaming Songs charts while also becoming the internet’s favorite new meme. Not too shabby for a song the singer released just a few weeks ago.

Listen: Kelly Clarkson channels heartbreak in ‘Never Enough’ cover

With a week left until The Greatest Showman – Reimagined covers album is set to be released to the general public, the folks behind the forthcoming record have debuted another new song. On Friday (Nov. 9), Kelly Clarkson dropped her version of Jenny Lind’s tear-jerking track, “Never Enough.” Instead of going over-the-top, Clarkson keeps it simple by letting her iconic pipes shine through alongside a piano.

“I am so honored to be a part of The Greatest Showman – Reimagined,” said Clarkson via a press release for the newly released track. “‘Never Enough’ is a beautiful song and I hope y’all dig my version.”

Listen to Clarkson’s take on “Never Enough” above.

Clarkson’s “Never Enough” cover will join Panic! at the Disco’s “The Greatest Show,” P!nk’s chart-topping version of “A Million Dreams” and the “A Million Dreams (Reprise)” performed by her daughter Willow Sage Hart on the forthcoming compilation.

In addition to P!nk, Panic! at the Disco, and Clarkson, The Greatest Showman – Reimagined album will also include a special version of the album’s breakout single, “This is Me.” The redone track will include Kesha and Missy Elliot as well as the film’s breakout star, Keala Settle.

The covers album will also feature four bonus tracks: a capella group Pentatonix’s take on “The Greatest Show”; Craig David’s version of “Come Alive”; Kesha’s “This is Me”; and an acoustic version of “Rewrite the Stars” by the film’s star Zendaya.

The Greatest Showman – Reimagined will arrive on Nov. 16 through Atlantic Records.

Pre-orders for the upcoming album are currently available here.

The reimagined version of the album was produced by the soundtrack’s songwriters Grammy, Tony, and Academy Award-winning duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

Listen: Panic! at the Disco debut their ‘The Greatest Show’ cover

Theatrics is one of Panic! at the Disco’s strongest suits, so being featured on the upcoming The Greatest Showman – Reimagined covers album was almost a no brainer. On Friday (Nov. 2), the Las Vegas-founded band unleashed their version of the soundtrack’s opening track, “The Greatest Show.” Originally performed by Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Zendaya, Keala Settle, and the Greatest Showman Ensemble, Panic! at the Disco’s version is clearly their own spin on the track as frontman Brendon Urie’s soaring vocals are unmistakable during the three-minute song.

“I admire Benj and Justin’s work and applaud the groundbreaking soundtrack they created for The Greatest Showman,” Urie said in a press statement. “I’m excited I got a chance to add a little of my own theatrics to the reimagined version of ‘The Greatest Show.’”

Listen: P!nk covers ‘A Million Dreams’ for ‘The Greatest Showman’ tribute album

“The Greatest Showman” is by far one of the year’s biggest hits. Both the film and its accompanying soundtrack have broken several records and won several awards. All this and 2018 hasn’t even ended. Because of its surprise accomplishments, Atlantic Records announced in early October plans to reissue the film’s soundtrack with some of music’s biggest stars taking on the film’s tunes.

On Wednesday (Oct. 24), P!nk released her contribution to the tribute album. The “What About Us” crooner was given the soundtrack’s second track, “A Million Dreams.” Originally recorded by Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, and Ziv Zaifman, P!nk stays true to the film’s version of the song with piano, guitar, an orchestra, and a lot of heart and emotion.

In addition to P!nk’s cover of “A Millions Dreams,” the reprise of the song was also released. As previously reported, the “A Million Dreams (Reprise)” was performed by the singer’s seven-year-old daughter, Willow Sage Hart. Listen to the “A Million Dreams (Reprise)” here.

As if the two songs wasn’t enough to get your fix, a behind-the-scene video of the mother-daughter duo recording their songs was also released. In the video, P!nk is seen cheering on her daughter, mouthing the lyrics to the song, and thanking the guys behind the movie/soundtrack for making this film.

“I grew up listening to ‘Annie’ and no one has done this for me, for my heart since I was a little girl,” Pink says in the clip. “And to have her finally have something like this…you made our favorite movie ever.”

Watch the behind-the-scenes footage here.

P!nk and Willow are joined by a diverse group of performers on the upcoming The Greatest Showman — Reimagined album. The record also features Panic! at the Disco, Kelly Clarkson, Kesha, Missy Elliot, Pentatonix, Sara Bareilles, and more.

Panic! at the Disco will give their own spin to the film’s opening track, “The Greatest Show,” while Kelly Clarkson will take on Jenny Lind’s tear-jerking track, “Never Enough.” The revamped soundtrack will also include a special version of the album’s breakout track, “This is Me,” performed by the film’s breakout star Keala Settle, Kesha, and Missy Elliott.

In addition to the ten tracks, the album will also feature four bonus songs. The bonus tracks will include a capella group Pentatonix’s take on “The Greatest Show,” Kesha’s “This is Me,” and an acoustic version of “Rewrite the Stars” by the film’s star Zendaya.

Watch: Weezer cover Blink-182 at Riot Fest

Blink-182 may have had to cancel their headlining gig at Riot Fest this year, but leave it to Weezer to pay homage to the absent band. During Weezer’s Riot Fest set —originally Blink-182’s time slot— the former decided to cover arguably one of the latter’s biggest hits, “All the Small Things.” It’s not like Weezer are any strangers to covering hit songs. Earlier this summer, the “Buddy Holly” crooners took on Toto’s “Africa” and made it one of the biggest alternative songs of 2018, so why not honor their former tour mates by covering one of their songs.

Watch the full, fan shot video above.

Prior to hitting the Riot Fest main stage, Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo did a solo show in San Francisco where he gave the August Hall audience an acoustic rendition of “All the Small Things.”

“Weezer always has Blink’s back,” Cuomo told the audience in attendance.

In 2009, they joined Blink-182 on the road for their reunion tour, confirming that the camaraderie is real. Watch Cuomo’s acoustic version of “All the Small Things” here.

Earlier this month, Riot Fest confirmed that Blink-182 had to cancel their appearance at the annual Chicago-based rock music festival due to Travis Barker’s health concerns. The band not only cancelled their appearance at the annual music festival, but were also forced to cancel all their September headlining gigs. After revealing that the trio would no longer perform, Riot Fest organizers were quick to enlist Taking Back Sunday, Run the Jewels, and Weezer to fill the vacancy.
