Daily Round-Up For July 30, 2013
Hello all! Welcome to the Daily Round-Up, redOrbit’s one stop shop for all of the latest and greatest music news of the day. Hopefully you find something that interests you, and maybe something that brightens your day! Let’s get to business.
Katy Perry has announced her new album, entitled Prism, in a very unique way – by plastering the album’s name and release date on a solid-gold truck that drove around Los Angeles. More details about this extremely creative promotion can be found back at Consequence of Sound.
The absolutely insane Flatbush Zombies are back on the mainstream hip-hop radar – this time around it’s with the announcement of a new mixtape. You can watch the trailer for BetterOffDEAD back at 2dopeboyz.
Rapper Big Sean hasn’t been doing much as of late, but this week he finally let loose with a new track. Maybe Big Sean is trying to break into the mold set by J. Cole, Mac Miller, and the rest of the burgeoning hip-hop class. You can listen to Fire back at The Music Ninja.
Speaking of J. Cole, it has been announced that he and contemporary Wale are set to embark on a new tour, entitled the What Dreams May Come tour. A list of dates has been released to accompany the announcement, and it seems like the duo are going to be hitting quite a few destinations around the US in the coming days. The link to the full list can be found back at 2dopeboyz.
Dr. Dog has also announced a brand new tour, chock full of headlining dates for the alternative group. Folk band The Lumineers will look to help out at some of these shows. The full list can be found back at Consequence of Sound.
DJ Khaled also released a star-studded new single off of his upcoming record Suffering From Success. I Wanna Be With You features Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, and Future as guest performers. You can listen back at Consequence of Sound. Suffering From Success is due out September 17th.
The guys over at the Music Ninja seem to be falling over themselves talking about this new remix of the Calvin Harris song Thinking About You. We have producer Firebeatz to thank for the new song – The Music Ninja is calling it a summer anthem. Be the judge for yourself by going and listening! The link is back at The Music Ninja.
