Lauryn Hill Releases New Song, “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)”

Listen Up!

It’s crazy to think about, but this coming August will mark 15 years since the incredible album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was released. Since then, the former Fugee has not released another studio album, instead busying herself by having kids (six in total, five with Bob Marley’s son Rohan), practicing her faith with the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, pissing off the Vatican, and not paying her taxes. While she’s done a little bit of performing over the years — touring with Nas, an appearance at Coachella in 2011 — and a couple of new songs have been leaked, the clamor for a new Lauryn Hill album has seemingly fallen on deaf ears. Until now! Keep reading »

To cap off our Wanderlust content, what could be more fitting than a road trip playlist? Besides a car, gas money, and comfy pants, there’s really nothing more integral to a road trip’s success than a good selection of music. On our recent drive from Oregon to Tennessee, my boyfriend and I didn’t prepare nearly enough music, and we ran out of new tunes somewhere in eastern Wyoming. It was awful. I vowed to never let that happen again, so I polled The Frisky staff for their favorite road trip songs. Some of our selections specifically reference the road trip experience, but most of them are just awesome tunes that match the feeling you get when you see miles and miles of road stretched out in front of you. Check out our Spotify playlist after the jump, and feel free to download it before you hit the open road! Keep reading »

Check Out Sinead O’Connor’s New Single “Old Lady”

Sinead O'Connor

It’s been a rough couple of years for ol’ Sinead. I’m not going to lie. There was her wedding announcement that included the phrase “Can’t. Talk. Cock. In. Mouth. Situation.” and her abrupt divorce 18 days later … which then went back on-again.  Not surprisingly, soon after all this, she announced she had a mental breakdown attributed to her bipolar disorder and canceled a tour.

But still, she makes good music. Here’s her latest single, “Old Lady,” from her 2012 album How About I Be Me (And You Be You?) — reminding us of the same old Sinead, breakdown or not. Keep reading »

I guess when the sex tape thing didn’t pull through, Tanning Mom, my muse, had to come up with another way to stay in the spotlight. What about her biopic starring her? I’m dying for that! Anyhow, Patty Krentcil decided to hit the recording studio and cut her first single, “It’s Tan Mom!” The truth is, I don’t care why she’s releasing her new single, just that she is. The track, which begins with Tanning Mom channeling her inner Britney Spears (“It’s Tan Mom, bitch!”) is due out on iTunes May 6. That should pretty much be the best day of my life. Until then, I guess I’ll have to listen to other ill-conceived singles released by people desperate to extend their 15 minutes. I don’t include Reality TV stars in this category because they ALL try their hand at a music career. My two exceptions are Danielle Staub and Courtney Stodden because I have love for those cray bitches. After the jump, some of my favorite never-were-celebrity songs. [AU News] Keep reading »

Here’s Beyoncé And Andre 3000′s Cover Of Amy Winehouse’s “Black To Black”

beyonce back to black

It’s finally here: the Andre 3000 and Beyoncé cover of Amy Winehouse’s song “Back To Black” for the “Great Gatsby” soundtrack.

I’m going to say something controversial: I don’t like it. It’s creepy. Imma let you finish, Andre 3000, but Beyoncé should have just sang the whole song herself.

But judge for yourself! Listen after the jump… Keep reading »

Kim Gordon Generously Shares Her “Traumatized Good Times Tunes” Rap Playlist

In my experience, breakup music can go two ways: there’s the soft, sad, slow, wallowing type, and then there’s the upbeat and/or aggressive type that makes you feel like you’ve got the world by the balls, and fuck him, anyway. Personally, I usually begin with the former and progress to the latter over time, once I feel like I’ve gotten all of the tears and self-pity out of the way and I’m ready to move on to not giving a fuck. And you know what’s the best music for making you feel like you just don’t give a fuck? Yeah, it’s probably gonna be rap. But don’t just take it from me — impossibly rad rock star Kim Gordon, who split from her Sonic Youth bandmate Thurston Moore in late 2011 after 30 years together, knows that hip-hop, or what she calls “Traumatized Good Times Tunes,” are kind of the panacea for heartbreak and that gross, creeping “oh my god I feel so sorry for myself I could die” feeling. Gordon revealed her personal playlist and, no surprise here, it’s pretty legit, featuring tracks by Joey Bada$$, Boss, and Gang Starr, and the obligatory Iggy Azalea guilty pleasure. Check it out. We recommend. [Refinery29]
