Of course Brandon Flowers covers Inxs like a champ

15 April 2015 8:13 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Los Angeles - The Killers' Brandon Flowers is stepping out solo once again this spring, and last night at the Troubador in L.A. he gave a quick preview of three new songs and the sounds fans can expect out of "The Desired Effect," out May 19. Flowers also further revealed his love for a major influence -- Inxs -- as he launched into a cover of the Aussie band's "Don't Change." "One of the things most profound about Inxs is this song we're about to cover, it has such a strong identity," Flowers said, also mentioning that Inxs was the subject of the first band poster he ever bought. "['Don't Change'] is on their first record, and they seemed to really know who they were. You don't really hear that a lot anymore." Flowers' fresh tunes "Dreams Come True," Peter Gabrielian "Still Want You" and glittery single "Can't Deny My Love" have a bright, »

This New James Murphy Song From the While We’re Young Soundtrack Is Stunning

17 March 2015 3:39 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Noah Baumbach should ask James Murphy to score all of his films, because, at this point, the duo can do no wrong. Their latest collaboration is the soundtrack for While We're Young, a film about old couples who can't remember what life was like before it became terminally boring, starring Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Amanda Seyfried, Adam Driver, and Ad-Rock.Murphy selected songs from artists like Haim, Paul McCartney, and A Tribe Called Quest for the album, but the real joy is hearing the original music he wrote for the score. The beautiful "We Used to Dance," released today, is a gorgeous instrumental that sounds like it could have been plucked from Brian Eno's Another Green World (or an early Human League album). Murphy recorded two other songs for the soundtrack, including another original, "Only the Stars Above Welcome Me Home," and his take on David Bowie's 1976 classic "Golden Years. »

See Jimmy Fallon and Kelly Clarkson Harmonize the History of Duets

3 March 2015 6:14 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Spurred by Kelly Clarkson's recent comments that she has been unable to find a suitable duet partner, Jimmy Fallon offered his services on last night's The Tonight Show. Together, the couple sang a dozen duets in a four-minute mega-medley. Much like Fallon's ongoing History of Rap series with Justin Timberlake, the late-night host and the "Heartbeat Song" singer take a similar journey through five decades of chart-topping duets, kicking things off with Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe" before bringing it on home with Lionel Richie and Diana Ross' "Endless Love. »

3 March 2015 4:32 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

After claiming she's had a hard time finding people to collaborate with musically (then saying she was only joking), Kelly Clarkson found the perfect duets partner when she showed up on Monday's Tonight Show.

The American Idol alum and Jimmy Fallon performed a medley of the greatest duets of all time, including Jennifer Warnes and the late Joe Cocker's classic "Up Where We Belong", the Human League's "Don't You Want Me", Elton John and Kiki Dee's "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" name a few. Fallon impressed the audience when he busted out his Aaron Neville for the ballad "I Don't Know Much" that also featured Linda Ronstadt.

This past week, the 32-year-old "Since U Been Gone" singer -- who's won three GRAMMYs and has had two No. 1 albums -- told BBC Radio 1's Nick Grimshaw that she has trouble finding collaborators. "I honestly would collaborate with a lot of people, but everyone »
