New Patrick Watson Single 3 replies

Montreal singer-songwriter Patrick Watson (and his eponymous band) has released a new single this week, entitled 'Turn Into the Noise', which will be appearing on the second half of the American television program The Walking Dead's fifth season. The singer's 'Noisy Sunday' track had previously appeared in the show.

Watson states he loves composing for cinema and television, and additionally announced that the track will be appearing on his upcoming solo album, Love Songs for Robots, scheduled for release this spring.

He described the album as in the same spirit as the song itself, in that it is much less folk-influenced than his previous works, and slightly R&B-induced and inspired by science-fiction.

'Turn Into the Noise' is currently available on iTunes, and you can catch the preview in which it is featured here:

Zoë Keating's Youtube dilemma 11 replies

In a recent blog post, cellist extraordinaire Zoë Keating expressed her frustration at Youtube's newly established music streaming service, Music Key. Taking issue with with the lack of control offered by the site's service agreement, Keating wrote:

"The Youtube music service was introduced to me as a win win and they don’t understand why I don’t see it that way. “We are trying to create a new revenue stream on top of the platform that exists today.” A lot of people in the music industry talk about Google as evil. I don’t think they are evil. I think they, like other tech companies, are just idealistic in a way that works best for them. I think this because I used to be one of them. The people who work at Google, Facebook, etc can’t imagine how everything they make is not, like, totally awesome. If it’s not awesome for you it’s because you just don’t understand it yet and you’ll come around. They can’t imagine scenarios outside their reality.& ...more

New Megadeth album announced 52 replies

Following the departures of two members, Megadeth have yet to reveal their new band lineup or whether they even have new members in place. However, that is not stopping the group from moving full speed ahead on a new disc and eyeing a late 2015 album release.

Bassist David Ellefson tells Spotlight Report in a new interview that the idea of an off year is false, and adds that their new disc is "supposed to come out later this year".

While he held tight to keeping the identity of the band’s newest members a secret, he did add: "Most importantly we’re moving forward with writing a new album. Once we get into the studio to record it, then the lineup will naturally evolve around that".

Ellefson also spoke about the exits of Chris Broderick and Shawn Drover last fall, adding: "It is obviously going to be different without them. We spent five years together with them in that lineup. That is a long time. We did multiple ...more
