No sooner had Soundgarden announced the band would tour in 2011, than singer Chris Cornell took off on a self-dubbed “songbook” solo trek himself. For a short time, fans were left wondering about the fate of the mooted brand new Soundgarden album, which the reunited proto grunge quartet was supposed to be recording. Several fall show dates for Cornell solo and with Soundgarden doesn’t do much to allay fears, either. KOvideo caught up with Cornell, whose post Soundgarden solo career was augmented by a stint fronting Audioslave, to find out what’s happening with the much anticipated Soundgarden record, which marks a recording hiatus of over a decade, and why he decided to do mix band activity with these solo shows.[…] Read more »
Considering picking up the new Blink 182 album Neighborhoods but aren’t fully convinced? Give the full release a listen before you buy. Reported by NME this morning, Blink 182 is streaming their new album in full. Listen to all tracks here.
Blink 182’s first album in eight years, Neighborhoods came out yesterday in two editions: a standard 10-track LP and a 13-track deluxe version. Why the two versions? In speaking with NME, bassist Mark Hoppus mentioned: “I think it's pretty much standard practice now to have a standard and deluxe edition. I think some people are only mildly interested in a band and might only want the standard edition and some are more hardcore fans and will want the B-sides. But, I don't think any of these are B-sides.”[…] Read more »

Nick Carey, er, Cannon, is attempting parental machismo in his new song, “I Remember.”
The song, which is a remix of a Deadmau5 track, begins with an abstract and colorful beat.
What follows is a voiceover prelude that speaks, “It’s incredible” in Auto-Tune, after which point "I Remember" then plummets into a confusing Soulja Boy/Bone Thugs and Harmony lyrical combo as the man we knew first as an “All That” Nickelodeon child star, then the comedy host of MTV’s Wildin’ Out, then an attempted movie star (Remember 2003 high school movie “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” with fellow musician and rumored love interest Christina Milian?), then as Mariah Carey’s husband and eventual father of her two children and finally, a host again, this time for primetime annoyance “America’s Got Talent,” attempts profanity and street-cred.[…] Read more »
Rihanna was snapped in a few country casual-inspired attires on the outdoor set, smoking a cigarette on film. One look saw the Barbadian beauty rocking an oversized red flanelette jacket and baggy jeans with a pair of red bandana-style bikini on display, while the other was an Americana-influenced combo of faded blue denim vest with matching shorts. The music video is expected to premiere in October sometime.
"Glassheart" was originally slated for a November release in time for the lucrative Christmas season. However, the former X Factor winner said that she is feeling "inspired" to record more new material to go with the collection of songs already chosen for the album.
Here is Leona Lewis' official statement on Facebook:
"Just wanted to update everyone on the album! I'm feeling so inspired right now and have decided to continue recording! I have a collection of songs that I'm so in love with and I no there's more to be born so it means the album will come early next year. [sic]"
