It’s been six long years since we’ve heard any solo tunes from Jenny Lewis, and every day without her mellifluous voice has been harder than the one before it. However, at long last, it looks like the musical drought is over! This week, the ex-Rilo Kiley frontwoman released the lyric video for “Just One Of The Guys,” the first single off her long-awaited third album, The Voyager, out July 29. [Does cabbage patch dance here.]

Directed by Lior Molcho, the clip features a photo carrousel of Jenny in various poses, sporting a pair of white cat-eye sunglasses while wearing a white suit with a rainbow airbrushed on the top half of the jacket. Visually, the lyric video is an extension of the album’s cover art, which features Lewis wearing the same ensemble, and was shot by famed photographer Autumn de Wilde. Keep reading »

I will be #TeamSineadOConnor forever. Sinead’s a bad-ass feminist thriving in the music industry from way, way back. So much so, in fact, that she’s named her upcoming album, I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss — and that’s the very sexy cover image above. You may remember the phrase “I’m not bossy, I’m the boss” coming out of Beyoncé’s mouth in a PSA for Sheryl Sandberg and the Lean In Foundation’s “Ban Bossy” campaign. It turns out that Sinead was so inspired by the “Ban Bossy” campaign that she named her album after it. As she explained on her website:

Just a note to explain the title of my forthcoming album IS taken from Sheryl Sandberg’s Ban Bossy campaign.

Originally I had a different title, The Vishnu Room, but a few months back when I saw the phrase ‘I’m not bossy, I’m the boss’ and became aware of the Ban Bossy campaign, I wished I could re-name the album, since indeed it can be tricky being a female boss and I think Sheryl’s campaign is a terribly important one.

An Imagined Conversation With Pandora Radio About Its Obsession With The Song, “Sail”

An Imagined Conversation With Pandora Radio

Me: Ooh, I liked that song. Thumbs up, Pandora.

Pandora: Great! Glad you liked it. Since you liked that song, I think you will LOVE this next song: it’s called “Sail” by AWOLNATION.

Me: Hmm … OK, sure. That song is kind of old and overplayed, but it’s catchy enough.

Pandora: Since you didn’t thumbs up or thumbs down that song, I have another one I think you’re going to just love: “Sail” by AWOLNATION. Keep reading »

10 Pop Artists That’ll Make You Feel Like A Tween Again

Last week, we introduced you to some awesome up-and-coming indie bands you should start listening to STAT. This week, we thought we’d take a look at the pop charts and see what artists might achieve superstar status over the coming months. Some of the picks are sugary sweet (Rixton) and others are downright dirty (Brooke Candy); regardless, all of them make for a killer summer playlist that’ll improve any BBQ, pool party or heat wave-induced brown-out.

Finally, The Iggy Azalea/Reba McEntire “Fancy” Mashup We’ve Been Waiting For

Iggy + Reba Fancy Mashup

Iggy Azalea made waves when she released her single, “Fancy,” along with a “Clueless”-themed music video, but for many of us, there was and always will be only one song named “Fancy,” and that’s the Reba McEntire country classic. Thanks to music mashup genius Chambaland, we never have to choose between the two again. Listen to the twangy, sassy, double dose of “Fancy” after the jump… Keep reading »

O-Town Releases New Single, And I’ve Never Missed Ashley Parker Angel More

You guys. It happened. O-Town has released their first single since announcing they were reuniting as a foursome without Ashley Parker Angel. The song, “Skydive,” is a mid-tempo jam off their upcoming album, Lines & Circles, which is set to be released on August 3rd. It doesn’t hold a candle to the Backstreet Boys’ new music (obviously), but it’s a solid boy band song (think One Direction on mild sedatives). The only thing is … after listening to it, I’m really, really feeling the absence of Ashley Parker Angel. Sigh. Turns out even a 70-piece orchestra can’t replace him. Listen below and see if you can wrap your head around O-Town Minus Ashley.

Guy Proposes With “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” Music Video That He Filmed Over 4 Years Of Dating

music-video-proposal
Filmed In 26 Countries

Jack Hyer didn’t get the first memo, or the second memo, that public proposals are showoff-y and cringe-inducing for everyone around you. But I’ll forgive Jack, because he’s been traveling a lot these past four years. Twenty-six countries, in fact. In every new place, Jack filmed bits of himself singing the karaoke jam “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” in preparation of the day he would propose to his girlfriend, Rebecca Strellnauer. As he told ABC News, they dated briefly as teenagers and got back together during their freshman year at the University of Montana in Missoula. After deciding that he knew he wanted to marry at the end of their first date, he planned his proposal for four years, filming the entire time. He showed the proposal video to Rebecca and their families at a graduation party last week. (She said yes, duh.)  I don’t know what I hate (er, envy) the most about Jack Hyer. That he’s traveled to China, Thailand, Turkey, Israel, Tanzania and Cambodia? That he found the woman he wanted to marry in middle school? That he’s really freaking attractive? That he thought up a cute way to propose and pulled it off? Congratulations, you, too. And remember, you’ll only have nine months to plan a baby announcement! [TIME; ABC News]
