Daily Round-Up For November 13, 2013
Hello hello music fans! Welcome to the Daily Round-Up, redOrbit’s one and only assortment of all the latest, greatest, and most awesome music news of the day. Let’s dive right in!
Jack White, though he is only 38 years young, is being honored with a tribute album by some of rock music’s most revered acts. Contributing artists will include Wanda Jackson, Gary U.S. Bonds, Sonny Burgess, Big Jay McNeely, Johnny Powers, and Joe Clay. The full story is back at Consequence of Sound.
It’s been a shame that Lily Allen hasn’t released a new track in four years, but today her fans can finally breathe easy again. Allen put out a new song and accompanying video this week for the track Hard Out Here. And, in classic Lily Allen fashion, she’s not pulling any punches. Check it out at Listen Before You Buy.
Justin Timberlake has added a bunch of new dates to his 20/20 Experience tour, which will extend his trip across America and end with a leg in Europe. There’s also a gap in his new schedule that conveniently lines up with the dates of Chicago’s mega-festival Lollapalooza. Interesting… Check out the full list of dates at Consequence of Sound.
We all love Reggie Watts, and his musical talent and creativity undeniable. His newest project, a mobile app called Keezy, puts Watts’s enviable beat-boxing talent in the hands of his fans. Check out the full story back at The Verge.
Cage the Elephant have always been known to have some pretty amazing music videos for their songs (anyone remember the heartbreaking stop-motion video for Aberdeen?) and they’re showing no signs of slowing down with their new animated accompaniment for Come A Little Closer. Check it out back at Consequence of Sound.
Awesome musicians have been contributing to the new Hunger Games movie soundtrack left and right, and the latest group to offer their music is popular indie rock band The National. You can hear the band’s brand new tune Lean back at We All Want Someone To Shout For.
In some of the coolest news of the day, producer extraordinaire and LCD Soundsystem star James Murphy has revealed plans that would effectively transform the New York subway into a symphony by making turnstiles play different tonal notes. It sounds like an amazing idea to me! Let’s hope New York goes through with it. You can find his full statement back at The Line of Best Fit.
