Daily Round-Up For September 25, 2013
Hello awesome people! Welcome to the Daily Round-Up, redOrbit’s assortment of all the greatest music news of the day. Let’s dive in to the headlines!
There are new music videos today from rappers A$AP Rocky and Drake. The A$AP Rocky video, which can be found at Consequence of Sound, is for his new single Fashion Killa and features an appearance from singer Rihanna. And the Drake video, for his much-publicized new track Hold On, We’re Going Home, looks like it’s a pretty interesting viewing experience. You can check that one out at Consequence of Sound as well.
Drake has been hitting a ton of TV sets, from Jimmy Fallon to Ellen DeGeneres, to promote his new record. But none of them have been as interesting (at least to me) as his stop by ESPN’s debate program First Take. You can check out his appearance over at 2dopeboyz.
In case you can’t get enough of Kanye West, clips from his soon-to-be-landmark interview with BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe are continuing to slowly hit the web. You can see part 2 of the conversation here at YouTube.
It seems like the landmark video game Grand Theft Auto V is making headlines across every discipline of news – and the music industry is no exception. The game’s soundtrack, which has being universally lauded both critically and commercially, has now been released in its near-entirety on iTunes. The full story is over at the Verge. And, as a bonus, producer and musical mastermind Clams Casino has released his standout song for the game, entitled Crystals, for free download. You can find it at Stereogum.
There are also a few albums today that you can stream! Passion Pit, entitled Constant Conversations, has a new EP that you can stream through Stereogum. The Verge has the link to the iTunes stream for Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience Part 2. You can find the long-awaited new record from Moby, Innocents, over at Consequence of Sound. And the new album from the new lineup of Yuck, Glow & Behold, is being streamed at the New York Times. Happy listening!
And finally, Sir Paul McCartney paid Jimmy Kimmel Live a visit this week, and he made sure his stay was a great one. In addition to playing a 15-song set to legions of screaming fans at Kimmel’s outdoor stage, he sat down to talk for a while with Kimmel, and even played along with some of his antics. The video for all of this is online, and you can find it back at Stereogum.
