On August 14th, a tribute album to Fleetwood Mac titled Just Tell Me That You Want Me will be released through Hear Music/Concord. The album boasts artists such as The Kills, Best Coast, MGMT, and more.
The Kills, who covered the classic song, “Dreams,” were recently interviewed about the upcoming tribute album on Nowness.com.
When asked if she remembers the first time she heard “Dreams,” singer Allison Mosshart replied with a frank, “Nope. I guess it’s just one of those songs that you always hear.”
Guitarist Jamie Hince, however, gave a little more background as to why they chose “Dreams,” which stems back to the first time he heard the song.
“The song we were going to do was an old Peter Green song called “Man of the World,” recalls Hince. “It’s so beautiful, but the problem is that Green is a bit like Syd Barrett—he has a tender heart and a fragile brain. The song sounds absolutely perfect but if you try and cover it, you’re just playing a melody really. The whole sound of it comes from the heart and the head, and the fact he was falling apart. So I started listening to loads of Fleetwood Mac songs and realized that there were big songs that no one had chosen. The first time I remember hearing “Dreams” was a really terrible cover by The Corrs. I thought, ‘I want to reclaim it.’”
Although the album isn’t due until late summer, Hear Music/Concord has already let fans listen to several tracks from the record, including The Kills simplistic, bare bones rendition of “Dreams.” Take a listen below.
After a two year hiatus, The Killers are set to release a new album, Battle Born, in September of this year. 99Rock world premiered the first single off the new record, “Runaways,” on the 7 O’Clock Cage Match with Heath Cole, and the 3 O’Clock Rock Block with Geanette Foster ’14! Keep It Locked to 99Rock as “Runaways” are now added to the 99ROCK WFRD-FM playlist
“The world could use a real artist like Taylor right about now. Definitely one to look out for.” That’s a direct quote from Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, who has decided to look out for Taylor Greenwood himself. After the rock star caught one of Greenwood’s New York City shows, he decided she was just the kind of artist he wants to work with.
“In this day and age where processed production can make anyone America’s next big thing, Taylor Greenwood is so refreshing because she is the REAL DEAL,” Grohl says. “A truly amazing artist. Anyone who knows her voice knows the sound of raw, natural talent. I’ve seen her break a room down to pin-drop silence, and then make it explode…all in one song. With a voice that sounds as big in a smoky bar as it does on album…”
High praise from a veteran rocker for the California singer-songwriter. Greenwood has been writing songs since she was 13 and attended the Berklee College of Music, where John Mayer also musically matriculated. Her songs are musically in line with the likes of Sara Bareilles, using familiar arrangements and up-tempo percussion for a distinctly pop sound. But her lyrics are rougher, invoking comparisons to Adele.
Grohl is working with her on new music, reportedly “fine tuning the arrangements and chord choices” so the evolution from her single “All The Right Ones” below, from 2011, to the fine tunings of Grohl’s aesthetics will be interesting to hear.
You can expect new, Grohl-tuned music from Greenwood later in 2012. Her EP All Around Meis available now.
No stranger to gaming, Trent Reznor has jumped into the space, creating memorable music for id Software games Quake and Doom 3.
Reznor speaks excitedly about this teaming with Treyarch, the creators of the Call Of Duty series. “I have always looked to that franchise as the cutting edge of what seemingly unlimited budgets and full-on not cutting any corners can do in the current day and age,” he says in an interview with USA Today. According to the Nine Inch Nails frontman, the latest edition in the Coldwar series is darker then the two previous games. “It didn’t make sense to have a gung-ho patriotic feeling kind of theme song. It has to feel weighty.”
With the game’s score behind him, Reznor will return to his work with wife and musician Mariqueen Maandiq on their project How To Destroy Angels as well as a new release from Nine Inch Nails.
Coldplay has just announced that they’ve been quietly working with comic artist and Kung Fu Panda and SpongeBob SquarePants director, Mark Osborne, for three years on a Mylo Xyloto project. The 6-part comic miniseries will be released early next year.
The first issue of Mylo Xyloto, published by Matt Groening’s Bongo Comics, will be available at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con International. This Friday, July 13th, the production team behind the comic will appear at a panel to discuss the series and afterwards will be available for autographs in the official signing area. A limited supply of the exclusive edition of issue one will also be made available via the Coldplay’s online shop.
“The idea that the rebels in this world create musical graffiti was the big breakthrough for the sake of the comics,” says Osborne in an interview with Coldplay.com. “To make it not just a story about music, but a story about the power of creativity and the power of having a creative voice, which has always been a strong theme for the band. This also was far more visual and made the comic series a reality.” Osborne continues with a hint into the series’ story line, “Mylo Xyloto, a young Silencer on the front lines of a war against sound and color in the world of Silencia. Mylo discovers that the enemy he’s been trained to hate his whole life might not be the enemy after all.”
Although an animated film was Osborne’s first preference, time was not on his side as the band needed to focus on completing the album.
“There was one point in the process when I had lunch with the whole band at the Bakery when it was clear that the movie was going to have to take a backseat in favor of the music and the comic, we decided to use graffiti and otherworldly street-artists as a visual metaphor for the creation of music, this was the moment when the whole thing was pushed in the direction it now follows. The idea that the rebels in this world create musical graffiti was the big breakthrough for the sake of the comics, to make it not just a story about music, but a story about the power of creativity and the power of having a creative voice, which has always been a strong theme for the band. This also was far more visual and made the comic series a reality.”
Those unable to attend Comic Con should keep their eye on Bongo Comics as they will have the first issue before the series debuts, complete with a variant cover that won’t be available in stores.
With ¡Uno!, the first of Green Day‘s three album, ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tre!, in stores starting this fall, the threesome have announced they’ll release documentaries to support the albums’ release.
The first of the two films will be directed by Tim Lynch and Tim Wheeler. Lynch produced the Green Day: Bullet In A Bible DVD while Wheeler co-produced by The White Stripes Under Great White Northern Lights. The two directors will come together to document the making of the band’s upcoming album trilogy. The second of two films will be comprised of footage from the band’s early days, prior to Dookie, their first commercial success.
“It’s not going to be the sitting down, head shot of me going, “We started out blah blah blah,” explains Billie Joe Armstrong to Billboard. “We wanted to get into lifestyles of rock ‘n’ roll and playing rock ‘n’ roll and letting the story kind of tell itself rather than create revisionist history.”
Green Day’s first single from the upcoming album ¡Uno!, titled “Oh Love,” is scheduled for release on July 16th, with the full album following on Sept. 25th. The band will play a small handful of festivals this fall including New Orleans’ Voodoo Festival.
While in London for a set at the Wireless Festival, DJ/producer Deadmau5 stopped by Pete Tong’s show on BBC’s Radio 1 to premiere the single “Professional Griefers” with Gerard Way’s newly added lyrics. Although Deadmau5 had debuted the track at Lollapalooza in 2011, Way’s lyrical contributions had not been made public til Friday.
According to Deadmau5, the track will not be available for purchase until September 2nd, 2012. The EDM producer indicated that he’s currently working on the follow-up to his 2010 album 4×4=12.
My Chemical Romance are currently working on the follow-up to their fourth album Danger Day: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys.
