Hear Prince's Psychedelic New Song, 'HARDROCKLOVER'

Wednesday, 7:05 AM

Prince's new song, "HARDROCKLOVER," opens not with the expected thunderous riff, but a minimalist synth pulse.

Tuesday, 10:49 AM

The death of Yes bassist Chris Squire is a tragedy on many levels, only one of which is the fact that a complete reunion of the classic lineup of the band is now impossible. Discounting the short-lived late 1980s Yes splinter group Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe, Squire played in...

Kip Moore Admits Scrapping Entire Album for New Songs

Tuesday, 10:20 AM

Last June, Kip Moore was promoting a new single and expecting a fall release date for his second album. The song, "Dirt Road," had more to it than the title suggests, telling the story of a Southern kid who begins to reject the message his preacher sends down from the...
