The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 Ost review

19 November 2014 8:15 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

You only have to look at Zane Lowe's re-scoring of Drive to see how impassioned fans get about film soundtracks. In fairness, that was a brave undertaking, and swapping College & Electric Youth's sublime 'A Real Hero' for The 1975 in that aqueduct scene aside, it wasn't a total disaster. But the DJ's reimagining of the ineffably stylish thriller was still met with widespread scorn.

Admittedly, it was a strange choice of project (why mess with perfection?), although it's perhaps stranger still that altering the soundtrack from a film just three years old could be branded an act of sacrilege and defacement. But it's proof if proof were needed that scores worth their salt can quickly wedge themselves into the Zeitgeist and become as revered as the films themselves.

So will the same be said of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 in a few years' time? Lorde only knows… »

X Factor 2014: Movies week - original versions playlist

24 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

After the debacle of last week's "1980s" hits, The X Factor is playing a little closer to the rules for Movies Week.

According to the song list from our friends at ITV, all of these songs have been in the films. And they're more or less right.

We still inevitably have a few quibbles. Yes, it's on the soundtrack, but why opt for the Demi Lovato version of 'Let It Go' from Frozen's closing credits, rather than the proper Idina Menzel take from the film itself?

If you're going to attribute 'Try A Little Tenderness' to Otis Redding, then choose John Hughes classic Pretty in Pink as your movie, where Duckie famously lip-synched to the radical soul reworking of Jimmy Campbell, Reg Connelly and Harry M Woods's jazzy standard.

On The Commitments, it was the cast themselves who implored us to squeeze her, don't tease her, never leave her. »

Listen to Lorde's new song for 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1'

29 September 2014 8:53 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"I'm a princess carved in marble / smoother than a storm," sings Lorde on her new song "Yellow Flicker Beat." "And the scars that mark my body, they’re silver and gold... I'm locking up everyone who ever laid a finger on me." The track is less so about the New Zealand artist herself, but more an ode for Katniss Everdeen, as it was crafted for "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" soundtrack. The Grammy Award-winning songwriter curated the entire soundtrack, with "Yellow Flick Beat" the first reveal of the tracklist. No word which other artists will appear on it. "Yellow Flicker Beat" has a determined plod to it, topped with Lorde's descriptive and headstrong lyrics. Her hypnotically wavy voice hets harmonies over the big choruses, with production work from Adele helmer Paul Epworth to amplify the drama. I think this one may be a grower for fans of Lorde's "Pure Heroine, »

U2 Free Album Giveaway on iTunes - Songs Of Innocencea Gift to U2.Com Subscribers, Too

10 September 2014 9:22 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

U2's next album won't cost you a cent - the rock and roll band is giving away their 13th studio album for free. The Irish rockers - made up of Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr - have made their latest offering 'Songs Of Innocence' available cost-free to over a half a billion subscribers and all iTunes Music Store customers. The autobiographical record features collaborations with Ryan Tedder, Lykke Li, Danger Mouse and Paul Epworth and is intended to reflect the band's varying styles and influences over the decades. The album kicks off by paying homage to the early influence of The Ramones on the band in their track 'The Miracle', before revisiting a Clash gig they attended in 1977 in 'This Is Where You Can Reach Me'. 'California' is a nod to The Beach Boys, while 'Song for Someone' was written for the rockers by Bono's wife, »

Album review: U2's 'Songs of Innocence'

9 September 2014 1:31 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Taking a trick from Beyonce’s playbook, U2 dropped its 13th studio album, “Songs of Innocence,” today without warning. The Irish band made the announcement at Apple’s event in Cupertino, Calif. The aptly named “Songs of Innocence,” produced by Danger Mouse, with additional production by Ryan Tedder, Paul Epworth, Flood, and Declan Gaffney, is a song cycle that draws on the band members’ past— a time when they first met and everything was possible. It pays tribute to their influences (The Ramones, The Clash, The Beach Boys), first loves, growing up in the shadow of Ira violence, and the fallout of tough economic times. Bono’s vocals sound fresh and invigorated and the production sparkles. It’s a lovely album that is sentimental without ever losing its edge. Below is a first-listen review: my take on each song by only listening to it once as I play the album straight through. »

Coldplay dedicates song to Mick Jagger at NYC concert

5 May 2014 9:59 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New York (AP) — Coldplay dedicated its slow tempo tune "Fix You" to Mick Jagger at a concert in New York City. Chris Martin told the crowd Monday before singing the encouraging song about recovering, "It's for Mick Jagger." Jagger's longtime girlfriend, fashion designer L'Wren Scott, committed suicide in March. A memorial was held in New York last week. Martin doesn't quite have Jagger's moves, but the singer danced wildly onstage with his arms swinging as he sang tunes from the band's catalog, including songs from their new album "Ghost Stories," out May 19. He played the piano and guitar throughout the hour-long set at the Beacon Theatre, performing well-known hits like "Speed of Sound," ''Clocks," and "Viva la Vida" as colorful laser lights beamed and white stars hung from the ceiling above the stage. Confetti burst from the sides of the stage after they performed the dance-flavored tunes "Every Teardrop Is »

Review: Foster the People expands its sound on 'Supermodel' with mixed results

18 March 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After breaking through with”Torches’” hit “Pumped Up Kicks,” the  most uplifting infectious song ever about a serial killer, Foster the People returns  three years later with its second album, “Supermodel.” “Supermodel” relies on synthesizers and electronics as “Torches” did, but also brings in other elements: lead singer and band namesake Mark Foster traveled to Morocco, as well as wrote an orchestral score for the film, “Bella,” and both of these experiences inform “Supermodel”: it is much more expansive in its musicality than “Torches.”  For example, an African flair flavors opening track “Are You What You Want To Be,” after it kicks off with a straight-ahead guitar rock riff. Foster the People aren’t veering into “Graceland” territory by any means (or even Vampire Weekend’s “Contra”), but it’s nice to hear the trio stretching a little. Also added here are more acoustic elements: a lovely piano line runs through first single, »

Lily Allen slams music industry for not having enough female executives

18 March 2014 3:45 AM, PDT | | See recent RealBollywood news »

London, March 18: Lily Allen has lashed out at the music business, saying there's a lack of female artists in the industry and insisted that people need to take a stand against sexism.

While speaking to The Sun, the 28-year-old singer said that she's signed to Warner Bros' and have been into many different record company buildings, but is astonished by the lack of female executives.

'The Fear' hitmaker added that one will also notice that there's always a "man behind the woman" piece for successful female artists, like Jay Z for Beyonce, Paul Epworth for Adele and Mark Ronson for her, which does not happen with men.

U2: No line on new album

7 March 2014 10:45 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Despite the release of new track, “Invisible,” during the Super Bowl, it looks like U2 won’t have an album out in 2014, after all. At least that’s the word from Billboard, which reveals that the band is going back into the studio with OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder and Paul Epworth, best known for his work with Adele. The band heavily campaigned for its Oscar-nominated song, “Ordinary Love” from “Mandela- Long Walk to Freedom,” and had previously noted that writing the song took them out of their studio groove for the album, their first since 2009’s “No Line On the Horizon.”  (Trivia note: There were five years between “Line” and U2’s 2004 album “How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb,” the band’s longest stretch. However, if Billboard is right and we don’t see a new U2 until 2015, this will be the longest amount of time between sets for the »
