Need To Know: Thursday 8 September

Here are today’s Special K’s of music news.


- Metallica and Lou Reed have teamed up for a collaboration album called Lulu/ They have just released the track list, and you can see them perform some stuff live. So far it sounds pretty different from Jay-Z and Kanye, but you never know...  (via Pitchfork)


- Blink182 are giving away a new song from their upcoming album Neighbourhood. All you have to do is play a game which involves clicking your mouse twice. It took us about 6 minutes to win... (via Blink182)


- Patrick Stump has revealed the cover art for his Soul Punk album. He seems to be going for the world’s hardest hula hooping record. (via Facebook)


- Joe Jonas has a couple of teaser videos for his new music video. At least these ones create a storyline (Joe with a stunning girl in Paris), and aren’t just flashes of random footage. We appreciate that. Here’s the link to the best one. (via Youtube)


- Skylar Grey has done the opposite of Joe, and just released some still photos from her new music video. Come on Skylar, up your game, buddy. (via Facebook)


- Gotye has had a very unexpected remix done of his song ‘Somebody That I Used To know’. It’s dance/dubstep, and it’s weird. Even weirder than the name Gotye, which is saying something... (via Soundcloud)


- the best video we saw today was of Jeff Tweedy covering the Black Eyed Peas. It’s funny, and not even in a mocking way, and he makes it sound pretty good on acoustic guitar




Music Video:

Big Sean featuring Kanye West – ‘Marvin & Chardonnay’. So we guess this is what passes for romance now?
