Beck Details New Album ‘Hyperspace,’ Unveils Single ‘Uneventful Days’
Beck has detailed his upcoming album Hyperspace and shared a pair of new tracks from the LP, single “Uneventful Days” and album opener “Hyperlife.” Hyperspace, Beck’s followup to 2017’s Colors, arrives November 22nd.

Like its predecessor, “Saw Lightning,” “Uneventful Days” was co-written and co-produced by Pharrell Williams. While the previous single blended Beck’s slacker folk leanings with Williams’ upbeat hip-hop productions, their latest collaboration takes a more polished, synth-heavy approach.

Maggie Rogers Is Just Trying to Be Present

Maggie Rogers Is Just Trying to Be Present
Maggie Rogers remembers the morning of her college graduation at Radio City Music Hall in May 2016. It was 4:30 am, and she was the first NYU student to arrive. She stood on the proscenium, looked out at six thousand empty seats, and began to cry.

Rogers made a promise to herself that she would return to the stage of Radio City in 10 years. It took her three; this month, Rogers performed two sold out shows at the iconic venue. However, sitting down in a swanky hotel restaurant in the Lower

Liam Gallagher’s ‘Why Me? Why Not’ Surges Forward While Looking Back
It’s not surprising that Liam Gallagher has struggled to find his own creative voice in the decade since Oasis’ messy breakup. His attempt to form a new band with ex-members of Oasis minus his brother Noel was laughable for the simple fact that it was Noel who wrote all their songs (try to imagine a Who without Pete Townshend and you’ll get the picture.)

Half of Gallagher’s 2017 solo debut As You Were featured co-writing credits from big-time songwriters and producers Greg Kurstin and Andrew Wyatt, who have

The Bird and the Bee on the Poetry of Van Halen

Decades before Greg Kurstin was producing hits for Adele, Paul McCartney and the Foo Fighters, he was a preteen Van Halen diehard. “I saw them on their Diver Down tour,” he remembers. “I got to see them play ‘Unchained,’ and that was amazing. I was a massive Van Halen fan at that time.” So when he met singer Inara George and formed the jazzy synth-pop duo the Bird and the Bee with her, he was excited to learn that she, too, was a Van Halen stan.
