Dan Auerbach Talks 'Extra Weird' New Solo Album

Dan Auerbach Talks 'Extra Weird' New Solo Album:

"I just finished up," says Dan Auerbach, on the phone from California, where he's playing his new solo album for Nonesuch Records. "I'm really excited about it."

Auerbach's solo project, called the Arcs, will first release two "boxing-related" songs: "Stay in My Corner" and "Tomato Can," on a 7-inch vinyl at independent retailers on May 2nd, the day of the Floyd Mayweather/Manny Pacquiao fight in Vegas. "I can’t wait," Auerbach tells Rolling Stone. Auerbach, a boxer himself who regularly spars in his garage and backstage before shows, has already set up an official site for the new project.

The singer – whose last solo album was 2009's Keep it Hid – recorded the new album loosely in rehearsal studios and at a Brooklyn studio with friend Leon Michaels, who worked with Auerbach on his projects with Dr. John and Lana Del Rey. "It was cut really quick in a week and a half, two weeks of recording." Auerbach says he recorded with "a whole bunch of different people – my favorites," though he isn't saying who just yet. The Black Keys frontman will release the album in late summer.

"I just wanted to do my thing and get extra weird," he says of the album's direction. "I wanted everything to flow [and] be cohesive. A lot of the songs bleed one into the other, a lot like the Grateful Dead – my favorite records that they did. So I’ve got a lot of connected songs. It's basically everything I love about music all wrapped up into one record – that’s all!"

The singer-guitarist says this "extra-weird" vibe will apply to videos as well. "I'm just finishing up the artwork now, working on a cartoon video with this kid who lives in Bakersfield who's never made a video before," Auerbach says. "Kind of ridiculous. I’m just having fun [and] basically making music with no responsibility."

Before the album is released, Auerbach will return to the road with the Black Keys, whose tour was sidetracked due to drummer Patrick Carney's serious shoulder injury. "It’s going to be nice," he says of the band's return. "We needed that break so bad."

Taking Child to Pink Concert Not Bad Parenting, Says Judge

Taking Child to Pink Concert Not Bad Parenting, Says Judge:

Pink's recent The Truth About Love tour somehow became embroiled in a parental custody battle after a New Jersey woman was accused by her ex-husband of bad parenting for bringing their 11-year-old daughter to the "So What" singer's December 2013 concert. However, in an expansive 37-page decision, New Jersey Superior Court Judge Lawrence R. Jones wrote that the mother "in no way, shape or form exceeded the boundaries of reasonable parental judgment" by attending the Pink concert at Newark's Prudential Center, NJ.com reports.

"[The mother's] decision did not subject the child to any unreasonable risk of harm, or compromise [her] health, safety or welfare," Jones wrote. "To the contrary, when all the smoke from the custody litigation clears, it will be self-evident that all which happened here is that a young girl went to her first rock concert with her mother and had a really great time."

In the ex-husband's complaint against his wife, he accused Pink of promoting "lyrical profanities" and "sexually suggestive themes and dance performances." However, after the daughter told her mother that she was "dying" to see Pink live, the mother watched the singer's live performances on YouTube first before determining that the concerts featured "age-appropriate singing and dancing."

Jones' decision even went in-depth about rock n' roll's long history of upsetting adults, including a tidbit about how the Rolling Stones were once barred from performing in Jersey City and Asbury Park because "Satisfaction" was deemed indecent. Jones also explores parental advisory stickers and even breaks down the empowering lyrics of Pink singles like "The Great Escape" and "Perfect." (Jones does note the latter is the radio friendly version of the track "Fucking Perfect.")

"Perhaps most important, however, is the fact that [the daughter] enjoyed a parent/child night out together, sharing an experience which was clearly very important to the child in her young life. In this day and age, it is easy for parents to put off important bonding experiences with their children until a tomorrow which simply never comes," Jones wrote. "The positive value of this experience is not diluted in any fashion merely because there may have been some incidental curse words or allegedly suggestive themes during some of the songs at the concert."

Billy Joel Closing Out Nassau Coliseum Before Major Renovations

Billy Joel Closing Out Nassau Coliseum Before Major Renovations:

Billy Joel will give the legendary Nassau Coliseum its temporary curtain call on August 4th, playing the final concert at the Uniondale, New York arena, according to the singer-songwriter's website. The event will mark the Long Island resident's 32nd appearance at the venue, which opened in 1972 and has served as the home base for numerous professional sports teams (including, currently, the NHL's New York Islanders).

Tickets  – ranging from $49.50 to $119.50 – go on sale Friday, May 1st through Ticketmaster, and American Express cardholders can purchase limited quantities of pre-sale tickets starting Monday, April 27th at 10 a.m. Following Joel's concert, the venue will close for extensive renovations, with plans to reopen the building in December 2016. According to Newsday, Nassau Events Center will spend $260 million on the project, which will downsize the arena to 13,000 seats and construct additional facilities.

Joel, a Hicksville, Long Island native, hasn't played a solo show at the Coliseum since 1998, when he set the building's sell-out record with nine in one year. The venue honored this achievement with a banner that still hangs in the rafters. Joel's 1982 Coliseum show was filmed for the 1983 HBO concert special Billy Joel: Live From Long Island. Other notable music performances at the arena include Frank Zappa's final American concert in 1988 and a 1981 Genesis performance recorded for the Three Sides Live LP.

The Nassau date isn't Joel's only major concert event of the summer. In June, he'll travel to Manchester, Tennessee to headline the 13th installment of the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival – which also includes Mumford and Sons, Deadmau5, Kendrick Lamar, Florence and the Machine, My Morning Jacket and Robert Plant with the Sensational Space Shifters.

Hear Britney Spears Take 'Tom's Diner' to the Club

Hear Britney Spears Take 'Tom's Diner' to the Club:

As fans await Britney Spears' recently announced new single "Pretty Girls," the pop star's throwback collaboration with Italian disco pioneer Giorgio Moroder has leaked. For Déjà Vu, the producer's first album in 30 years, Spears covers Suzanne Vega's 1987 a cappella hit "Tom's Diner." Listen to it here.

The reenergized cover of the Eighties classic makes the song even more sonically dynamic, with Spears evoking Vega's subdued, almost deadpan, delivery. Spears joins a number of Top 40 staples who contribute to Moroder's return to music, including Kylie Minogue, Charli XCX and Sia, who sings on the LP's title track "Déjà Vu."

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Moroder teased the "Tom's Diner" cover, noting that it was Spears' idea. "Britney came to my management company with the idea to do a particular song with me, which was interesting because usually it's the other way, with the producer offering a song," said the artist best known for his work with Donna Summer. Though he couldn't reveal which song they had worked on together at the time, Moroder did note that that "it's a song which came out about 30 years ago as an a cappella, just a voice."

Spears' last release was 2013's Britney Jean. In the interim, the performer has been headlining her own show in Las Vegas titled Britney: Piece of Me. Though originally slated to be a two-year stint at Planet Hollywood, she announced last fall that she had renewed her contract for an additional two years. Though "Pretty Girls" has been confirmed, Spears has not revealed any additional information on a follow-up to Britney Jean.

Paul McCartney Announces First U.S. Arena Date of 2015

Paul McCartney Announces First U.S. Arena Date of 2015:

Even after nearly 60 years as an active musician, Paul McCartney is still one of the most prolific touring artists. The former Beatle just announced his first U.S. arena date of 2015: Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center on June 21st. It will be his first show in the city since 2010.

McCartney, who is currently touring Japan and South Korea, played 32 dates on the Out There tour across South, Central and North America last year. Though the Philly spot is his first arena date of 2015, the artist has confirmed two festival appearances: Firefly on June 19th and Lollapalooza on July 31st.

McCartney has kept busy since the release of his 2013 album New. The music veteran has found a new collaborator in Kanye West and has appeared on three of the rapper's latest singles, "Only One," "All Day" and "FourFiveSeconds." McCartney, West and Rihanna debuted their first live performance of "FourFiveSeconds" at this year's Grammy Awards. A week later, McCartney surprised fans with an intimate Valentine's Day show at New York City club Irving Plaza.

Last week, the musician inducted fellow Beatle Ringo Starr into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. "It's about fucking time, man!" McCartney said after the ceremony where he and Starr performed together. "That's what my daughter said a few years back. It's great. It's the completion. Now the four of us are in as a band, and as individuals. It would have been a shame if he hadn't been in, right?"

Tickets for the Wells Fargo Center show will go on sale May 1st at noon local time.

Lee Brice to Perform 'Drinking Class' on 'The Voice'

Lee Brice to Perform 'Drinking Class' on 'The Voice':

As the latest season of NBC's The Voice heads toward the finish line, country music continues to be an integral part of each week's competition, and not just because of coach/country superstar Blake Shelton (or current Nashville cast member Christina Aguilera). On Tuesday, April 28th, hot country hitmaker Lee Brice is slated to hit the stage to perform his current single, "Drinking Class."

"I'm a big fan of The Voice and tune in any time I can," Brice tells Rolling Stone Country. "I'm excited to perform 'Drinking Class' on Tuesday, and it'll be a blast getting to see my buddy, Blake."

The tune, which pays tribute to America's working class, was recently certified gold with digital sales in excess of 500,000. Brice's second single from his I Don't Dance album, "Drinking Class" currently sits at Number One on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart. It's also moving up on Billboard's Country Airplay survey, where it's at Number Four. Brice's previous Number Ones on that chart include "A Woman Like You," "Hard to Love," "I Drive Your Truck" and "I Don't Dance."

Brice, by the way, has no experience as a contestant on TV's many singing competitions but his younger brother does, as does one of the more familiar faces among The Voice's current Top Eight. Lewis Brice (and singing partner Gabriel Jordan) competed during the first season of the CMT series, Can You Duet, finishing in eighth place. The season two winners of Can You Duet were Steel Magnolia – singers Joshua Scott Jones and Meghan Linsey. Coincidentally, Linsey — who has traded country for soul — is one of the Top Eight left standing as The Voice enters its final weeks of competition this season.

The Voice episode featuring Lee Brice airs Tuesday, April 28th, at 8:00 p.m. ET on NBC. Also next week, on Monday's two-hour episode airing April 27th, former coaches Usher, Gwen Stefani and CeeLo Green will return to serve as advisers for the contestants.

Ticket prices range from $30 general entry to $150 VIP and meet-and-greet tickets that includes early entry to the venue, an autograph signing session and pictures with the group. Tickets can be bought via MyMusicTaste.

'Lip Sync Battle' Recap: Terry Crews' Abs Try to Steal the Show From Mike Tyson's Leather Leggings

'Lip Sync Battle' Recap: Terry Crews' Abs Try to Steal the Show From Mike Tyson's Leather Leggings:

What happens when a world-class boxer goes up against an actor with a flair for comedy? Well this week's Lip Sync Battle tried to answer that question with a hip-hop tinged battle featuring Mike Tyson and Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Terry Crews on Thursday (Apr. 23). It wasn't just a battle filled with lots of physical muscle, but also lots of muscle in the antics department as well.

Round 1

Tyson, in skinny jeans and a turtleneck, kicked off the night. And for one night only Iron Mike was "Iron Mick" thanks to his rendition of the Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction." His performance was filled with unusual dancing and gyrations that were probably supposed to pay homage to Mick Jagger's own signature dance moves. Actually, in retrospect, his fashion choice may have also been inspired by the legendary frontman as well, but it's hard to really explain Tyson in a turtleneck.

Also rocking some tight jeans (a theme for the night!), Crews "went old school" with Run-DMC's "Sucker M.C.'s," a song he proclaims "made me a man." While it's still unclear what exactly that means, Crews' pretty convincing performance probably had something to do with the fact that he shared the song basically helped him get though puberty. He even had some great crowd hyping-- including of all things, crotch thrusts. Oh, yeah, he also showed off his abs. "That is one of the best beats ever made in hip-hop," he said, adding it made his "nipples happy." TMI, Crews. TMI.



Round 2

"I never ever compete, I just create," Crews shared backstage, adding he's "the world's best dancer." Something he would later try and prove during his battle round performance of Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles."

Yes, you read that right.

The performance featured Crews first behind a piano, and then later he performed Carlton's anthem shirtless, complete with ribbon dancers and ballerinas. It was an unexpected choice, to say the least. It also left Mike Tyson shaking his head. "Sometimes you got to get in touch with your feminine side," he explained. Clearly.

So if you're Tyson, how do you try and top that Crews moment? "Spirit is everything," Tyson said before taking the stage. And there was no shortage of spirit or leather leggings during his performance of Salt-N-Pepa's "Push It." Also you make sure you that yoiu accessorize with a leather jacket and even more dance Mike Tyson-specific gyrating moves.

"I feel sexy," he shared after he wrapped up in his Chrissy Teigen-approved pants. (By the way, she approved of them because she, too, owns them.)



And the winner is...

In the end, only one of the guys could go home with the taste of victory. While it would seem like a close match, Crews was this week's winner. Good thing he wore a formal blazer (sans shirt, naturally) for the moment it was announced.

Blur’s return to the road is gathering pace. The Britpop icons have just posted details of a mid-year tour of Australia which doubles the number of concerts they’ve announced for the year.

The four-piece will play Sydney’s Qantas Credit Union Arena on July 25, they then travel to Byron Bay for the previously announced Splendour in the Grass fest, and finish with dates at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena on July 21 and Perth Arena on July 30.

Blur's New Song Inspired by Sydney Siege

Blur’s new album The Magic Whip began streaming online earlier this week ahead of its April 27 release date. Previously, the outfit has shared tracks "Go Out," "There Are Too Many of Us," "Lonesome Street," and "My Terracotta Heart" via various videos.

It’s been 16 years since the band's last album as the classic lineup of Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree. Blur's last full length was 2003's Think Tank, which Coxon missed.

Outside of Australia, Blur has just four live commitments locked in for 2015: Isle of Wight Festival (June 13), London’s Hyde Park (June 20), Super Bock Super Rock (July 17) and Benicassim Festival (July 18).

Natalie Imbruglia has been out of the limelight for a while. Indeed, it’s been six years since the release of her last album, 2009's Come to Life. And a mind-numbing 18 years since she had a global hit with “Torn.” The Aussie soap actress-turned-pop singer is about to have another tilt, with a new album Male set to drop Aug. 21.

Produced by Billy Mann (Pink, John Legend, Celine Dion), Male is a collection of classic and contemporary songs with a single, connecting theme -- the works were all originally performed by men. 

The album's tracklist includes covers of songs recorded by Cat Stevens, Damien Rice, Tom Petty, Pete Townsend and Zac Brown Band and the first track lifted from it is an alternative take on Daft Punk’s "Instant Crush.” Its Mad Men inspired video can be seen below.



Imbruglia praises the clip’s director Joe Stephenson as an “immense talent. I fell in love with his treatment. The dark Stepford wives vibe, and his reference of Gregory Crewdson’s photography. Such beautiful colors and mood. It’s so cinematic and gives the song a whole new dimension.”

The original version of "Instant Crush" appeared on Daft Punk's hit 2013 album Random Access Memories, and featured vocals from the Strokes’ Julian Casablancas.

According to Sony Music, Imbruglia will support her new album with a worldwide tour starting in late 2015.

“Male” track listing:
1. "Instant Crush" (original artist Daft Punk)
2. "Cannonball" (original artist Damien Rice)
3. "The Summer" (original artist Josh Pyke)
4. "I Will Follow You Into The Dark" (original artist Death Cab For Cutie)
5. "Goodbye In His Eyes" (original artist Zac Brown Band)

Elvis Costello made his 27th, and most likely last, appearance overnight on the Late Show with David Letterman.
The British singer-songwriter performed a medley of Nick Lowe's "When I Write the Book" and his very own ‘80s hit, "Everyday I Write the Book".

Costello has good reason to feel bookish. He’ll release his memoirs Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink later in October, through the publisher Penguin Books. Watch the Letterman clip below:



Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire are two of pop music's most enduring and prolific outfits, and they’ve a long history of working together. The two bands filled the stage again overnight when they performed a medley for Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Both bands formed in the late 1960s, and have enjoyed massive careers. Earth Wind and Fire's founding members have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame while Chicago has sold more than 100,000,000 records. Watch the clip below.
