Yesterday we announced the exclusive music video for Passion Pit’s “Cry Like a Ghost,” featuring almost two minutes of additional footage. Directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheibert – collectively known as DANIELS – the video, off their recent album Gossamer, debuted on the Sony Entertainment Network Blog and we’re excited to share it with you here:
Lil Wayne returns a little less than two years after the release of The Carter IV, arguably one of Weezy’s most commercially successful albums (by way of hit singles like “How to Love,” and “Mirrors”). As is core to many of his “themed” multi-albums, this one serves as the follow up to 2010’s I Am Not a Human Being, but also features unused material from The Carter III and The Carter IV. With a little more time to concentrate, as opposed to the pre-jail-time production of the last album, Wayne takes his usually rough-around-the-edges lyrical content and turns it up a notch . . . we’ll let you use your imagination on that one.

After whetting the appetites of his fans with a Christmas album last year, (even featuring his Mom on one of the tracks) Blake Shelton brings and album full of new material. Just in time for the season premiere of The Voice, where he serves as a celebrity mentor. Before he became a household name on the wildly popular show, he was well-known in the country world with seven other albums under his belt. His bi-coastal life hasn’t jaded the country boy, as he picked songs proudly declaring the big country truths: beer, denim, dusty roads and family. So much family, in fact, that he features his wife Miranda Lambert’s girl-group Pistol Annies on the first track, “Boys ‘Round Here.”

While OneRepublic certainly hasn’t been the loudest of bands in their genre, they’ve managed to keep a consistent presence the last six years since the release ofDreaming Out Loud (featuring “Apologize”). Giants like “Stop and Stare,” “Secrets,” and “Good Life,” quietly rumbled to major success through tv/film licensing and radio play. The lead single from Native, “Feel Again,” has also gained traction as the band toured and singer Ryan Tedder continued to be a highly in-demand, GRAMMY winning songwriter and producer (at the helm for Adele, Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce, among others). The band will be spending April overseas, wrapping up in Ireland on April 29th.
