Listen: Sade releases ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ contribution

Solider of love Sade is back! Last month, it was confirmed that the songstress would be one of the many artists to be featured on the upcoming A Wrinkle in Time soundtrack, concluding her eight-year hiatus from the music world. On Wednesday (March 7), Sade’s new song, “Flower of the Universe” was officially unveiled to an eagerly awaiting public.

According to the film’s director, Ava DuVernay, Sade’s song had such an impact on DuVernay that she ended up using some of the lyrics from the song in the actual film.

“My creative partnership with Sade on ‘Flower of the Universe’ was so connected that I reverse engineered the usual process and used her lyrics as actual dialogue within the film,” the director said in a press statement. Listen to “Flower of the Universe” above.

In addition to Sade, the A Wrinkle in Time soundtrack will feature music from Demi Lovato, Sia, Chloe x Halle, and Kehlani. Both the soundtrack and the film are set to be released this Friday, March 9.

A Wrinkle in Time is based on the 1962 novel by Madeleine L’Engle. The story follows 13-year-old Meg on a quest to find her missing father that leads her on an otherworldly voyage across dimensions.

As for Sade, the songstress’ last studio album was 2010’s Soldier of Love. After releasing the record, she went on hiatus. This isn’t the first time the musician has gone on hiatus following the release of a new album. After the release of 2000’s Lovers Rock, she did the same and went on a musical hiatus.

5 Seconds of Summer drop new single, announce spring tour

Over the past week, the guys from 5 Seconds of Summer have been teasing fans with the promise of a brand new song. Keeping their word, the band released their first new song in almost two years. On Friday (Feb. 23), the Australian band released their brand new tune “Want You Back.” The new track, which clocks in at barely three minutes, introduces the band’s longtime fans to the group’s new sound. Gone are the days of their bratty, teenage, pop hooks (“She Looks So Perfect”) only to be replaced by a more mature sounding band.

Listen to “Want You Back” above.

“Want You Back” will be featured on the band’s upcoming new record. Though they have yet to formally announce the release date or title for the impending album, the band has been referring to the new record as 5SOS3 on social media.

Months after surprising fans with their first song in over a decade, A Perfect Circle have confirmed the release of their long-awaited fourth studio album.

The album, the band’s first in 14 years, will be titled Eat the Elephant and is set to be released on April 20 through the band’s new home of BMG.

Thirty Seconds to Mars unleash new song

When Thirty Seconds to Mars confirmed that they would release new music soon, fans should have expected that it would take some time. On Thursday (Jan. 25), the California-founded band finally unleashed another new song from their much-anticipated, and still untitled, fifth studio album. Taking to social media earlier this week, the trio warned the Echelon (their fan club) that they would finally unleash a new track before the week concluded.

As promised, the band unveiled their new single, “Dangerous Night.” Heading over to Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 program, frontman Jared Leto premiered the new song while also revealing in the interview that the song was record a mere four days before. Also noted by the band, the song was written by both Jared and Shannon Leto and was recorded at the International Centre for the Advancement of the Arts and Sciences of Sound in Los Angeles.

Listen to “Dangerous Night” above.

“Dangerous Night” will join “Walk on Water” on Thirty Seconds to Mars’ new record. While the band has not confirmed the name of the new record, posts on social media are claiming that the album will be titled America. If the record does in fact end up being titled America, it would not come as much of a surprise to fans.

Last year, Thirty Seconds to Mars made it their mission to collect as many photographs and videos to capture a day in the life of an American on the Fourth of July. Eventually, a lot of those submitted videos and photographs were featured in the group’s music video for “Walk on Water.”  As per the band, the rest of the videos and photographs will be featured in the group’s upcoming documentary, “A Day in the Life of America.”

The new record will be the follow-up to the group’s 2013 release, Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams.


A Perfect Circle welcomes the new year with new song

This past weekend, A Perfect Circle frontman Maynard James Keenan teased fans on social media by telling them to have their “headphones ready Tuesday morning” because there could be a possibility of a “New Year’s treat.” On Tuesday (Jan. 2), as promised, the California-founded supergroup unleashed a brand new song titled “Disillusioned.” Listen to the new, almost-six-minute song above.

“Disillusioned” will join previously released single “The Doomed” on A Perfect Circle’s much-anticipated fourth album. Back in October of 2017, the five-piece officially unveiled “The Doomed”; their first new song in almost four years. Shortly after unveiling the audio for the new song, the band returned with its black-and-white video.

The upcoming new album, which has yet to formally get a release date or a title, will be the group’s first new record in 14 years. Even though the record has yet to be given an official release date, speculations have begun that the album will see a tentative release time frame of the second quarter of 2018. A Perfect Circle’s last studio album was 2004’s eMOTIVe.

In support of the still-not-titled new album, the group will hit the road beginning this spring.

Panic! at the Disco celebrate the holidays with new song

With a handful of days left before Christmas officially arrives, Panic! at the Disco is giving their loyal fan base an early gift. On Wednesday (Dec. 20), the Las Vegas-founded band unleashed a brand new, standalone Christmas jam named “Feels Like Christmas.” The barely three-minute-long song takes cues from a lot of Christmas tunes which at this point in the holiday season we either completely love or hate it to the point that our radio may be finding its way out the window. Listen to “Feels Like Christmas” above.

In a post on Instagram, the frontman Brendon Urie wrote a letter to fans, thanking them for all the support and love they have continuously showed the group throughout 2017.

“Thank you all for making this year my favorite so far,” begins the singer’s Instagram post. “Through the hard times and the beautiful moments, I’m glad we’re always there to lift each other up. I’m so excited for the new year and what’s to come. So to end this year right, here’s a little holiday jam I wrote for you. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.”

“Feels Like Christmas” is a standalone, holiday single/gift to fans and will not be featured on any upcoming Panic! at the Disco album. A free download of the new tune can be found on Fueled By Ramen’s website here.

Last week, Panic! at the Disco released All My Friends We’re Glorious; their second live album (their first was 2008’s …Live in Chicago). The 21-track album was recorded during the band’s “Death of a Bachelor” tour which found the group touring North American from February of 2017 to April of 2017.


Dashboard Confessional announces new album, sign with Fueled By Ramen

For Dashboard Confessional fans, it probably feels like they have been waiting for a new album for centuries. For over two years, frontman Chris Carrabba has repeatedly reassured fans that the group would be releasing new music soon. On Wednesday (Nov. 15), fans finally got what they have been waiting for when the band officially announced their seventh studio album. Taking to social media, the Carrabba-led act confirmed that their new album will be titled Crooked Shadows and that it will see a release date of Feb. 9, 2018 through their new home of Fueled By Ramen.

In addition to announcing the title of the new album, its release date, and the group’s new record label, Dashboard Confessional has also unleashed the record’s powerful lead single, “We Fight.” Listen to the new song above.

Pre-orders for Crooked Shadows can be found on Dashboard Confessional’s website here. Crooked Shadows will be the follow-up to 2009’s Alter the Ending even though the band released a standalone single titled “May” in the spring of 2016.

Earlier this week, the group tipped fans off that something big was coming when they cleared everything from their Instagram profile. All the images they previously had were replaced with an image that had the date “11.15.17” printed against a gray background. The group’s new music confirmation comes almost three years after Carrabba hinted that the band was in the process of creating a new record.

“It really feels like we’re eager to write, which means there’s probably a new record coming out,” Carrabba told Entertainment Weekly back in the summer of 2015. “Who am I kidding? There’s a new record coming.”

Well, after almost three years, fans finally got that record Carrabba had hinted at. Not only that, but according to Carrabba the new music, especially “We Fight” started out one way and evolved as time passed.

“It’s a weird thing when you write a song; you think you know what it’s about, but you don’t until some months later sometimes. So, I thought for sure it was just about how I found a place in the world, which was worth fighting for, which was the music scene that I come from,” Carrabba explained to Beat’s 1 DJ, Zane Lowe.

“I wasn’t cool in school. I didn’t fit in. I found this music scene and it fostered this community and it fostered the people in it. You could be black or white, you could be straight or gay, you could be a man or a woman. Everybody was equal and we were equally protected but we were equally encouraged to do something that challenged the status quo.”

For now, the complete track listing for Crooked Shadows can be seen below.


1. “We Fight”
2. “Catch You”
3. “About Us”
4. “Heart Beat Here”
5. “Belong”
6. “Crooked Shadows”
7. “Open My Eyes”
8. “Be Alright”
9. “Just What to Say”


Listen to Nine Inch Nails’ new tune ‘This Isn’t the Place’

Less than a week after confirming their upcoming new EP, Nine Inch Nails has returned with another new song from the impending release. On Tuesday (July 18), the Trent Reznor-led group unleashed  “THIS ISN’T THE PLACE”; the second song off ADD VIOLENCE. Watch the Alex Lieu-directed clip above.

Listen: Broadside gets serious on ‘Laps Around a Picture Frame’

With a handful of days left until the release of their sophomore album, Broadside has released yet another new tune from the upcoming album. On Friday (June 9), the Virginia-based band unveiled the audio for their third single, “Laps Around a Picture Frame.” Unlike most of their other tunes, this one starts off with a surprise as the vocals are not those of vocalist Oliver Baxxter, but rather guitarist Dorian Cooke.

According to the group this was done on purpose to show two different people suffering from the same exact medical issue. “We wanted to capture two completely different humans having the exact same mental breakdown,” explains Cooke about the new song in a press release. “We wrote the music, lyrics, and arrangement around a panic attack in a crowded environment. Even the name is an exercise for panic attacks taught to me by a therapist. The persona I represent is of someone that’s on the higher end of the social spectrum – someone popular and beautiful on the outside, but has that constant struggle internally.”

Like Cooke, Baxxter portrays someone who also suffers from panic attacks, but unlike Cooke’s character, comes from another side of the social spectrum. “I portray a young female persona shaped by the harshness of her environment, which is a story shared with me by a close friend whenever she is in a public setting. I know it’s something much more common than people tend to show.” Listen to the new song above.

“Laps Around a Picture Frame” will join previously released tracks “Puzzle Pieces,” “Hidden Colors,” and “Paradise” on Broadside’s upcoming album, ParadiseParadise is set to be released this Friday, June 16, through Victory Record. Pre-orders are still available here. All pre-orders will include an instant download of “Puzzle Pieces.”

Last week, Broadside concluded their spring tour with Real Friends, Have Mercy, Tiny Moving Parts, and Nothing, Nowhere. Recently, the group announced a pair of music festivals gigs including Syke Fest which will take July 15 in their hometown of Richmond, Virginia as well as a headlining gig at the Sophomore Slump Fest in Greensboro, NC on Aug. 5.
