Oh, how we heart the collaboration between Def Sound and Nikko Gray. “Lunar.Sun.Light” is that left field summer boo music you need in your life – we approve. It’s safe to say that we’re a bit twisted up in knots in anticipation of their upcoming album.

Rejoice! Feist is returning with her first album since 2007′s The Reminder. The new album, Metals, will be out on October 4th and promises to be just as chilling as her previous works.

Directed by Michel Gondry, Bjork’s video for “Crystalline” is certainly an experience. A spacey digital visual mash-up might be one way to describe it. Biophilia will be out on September 27th as an iPad app and will include “clickable art, games, karaoke-ready music notation and essays,” according to The Fader.

New Release: Joss Stone – LP1 + Free MP3 & Videos

 


Joss Stone‘s first album on her own label, Stone’d Records, is out today! Aptly titlted, LP1 shows Joss taking total creative control; a fresh piano-driven rock sound blends the innate emotive soulfulness of Stone’s vocals with the raw bareness of traditional blues.

The Grammy award-winning singer co-wrote and co-produced the album with super-producer Dave Stewart – not bad at all for the inaugural album on your own label. Congrats to Joss!

In case you missed it, be sure to watch the album video teaser that we posted back in June!

Also, peep Joss’ cute interview about living in a van in the forest on The Late Late Show as well as a live performance on Jay Leno after the jump.
