Pink is no stranger to a ballad, but her brand new song "You and Me" picks up an acoustic guitar and swoons over pedal steel, with new duet partner Dallas Green -- aka, City and Colour. Performing under her given name Alecia Moore, the pop star and Green have crafted a 10-song album called "rose ave." under the name You+Me. "rose ave." is due on Oct. 14 via RCA. The sentimental lyric video for their song "You and Me" can seen below, and pre-orders for the album come with a download of the single. "The artists met through Alecia's husband Carey Hart and instantly felt a connection and wanted to work together," reads a statement from the label. "Alecia invited Dallas to Los Angeles to write a song or two and ended up writing 8 songs together in 1 week. The duo then decided to finish and record an album." Just looking »

It was the third episode of Turn, AMC’s Revolutionary War spy thriller, but it sure felt more like a season premiere. Abraham Woodhull (Jamie Bell) had been a somewhat lackluster protagonist in the first two episodes, a farmer victimized by bad luck who has the added misfortune of consistently being the second or third smartest person in every room he’s in. This is the guy who’s going to help turn the tide for General Washington’s Continental Army by spying on the redcoats in New York? This is the guy who’s going to make history interesting »

The National's Matt Berninger and the Civil Wars' Joy Williams have collaborated on the theme for the new AMC show “Turn.” Listen to "Hush" in the opening credit sequence below. The song’s suspenseful, gothic folk sound sets the mood for the period drama, which recounts how spies played a key role during the Revolutionary War. “Turn” premieres on Sunday, April 6 at 9 p.m. Edt on AMC. In a press release, both Williams and Berninger said they became quick fans of the show. “When I was filled in on the premise of ‘Turn,’ and when I saw the pilot in advance, I was hooked,” Williams said. Berninger added: “I was excited about this show from the second I heard about it, so it was a big thrill when Joy asked me to help write the theme song.” Watch our editor Katie Hasty’s recent interview with Matt Berninger below the "Turn" clip. »

On an obvious, commercial level, it makes perfect sense for Taylor Swift to record end-credits for teen-targeted films. In 2012 she teamed up with T Bone Burnett and the Civil Wars for “The Hunger Games’” signature tune “Safe and Sound.” It helped lift the pic’s soundtrack to No. 10 on the Billboard chart, nabbing a Golden Globe nomination and a Grammy in the process.
Late last year she partnered with Fun guitarist Jack Antonoff to pen and perform “Sweeter Than Fiction” from the Weinstein Co.’s “One Chance,” for which she’ll once again be competing for best original song at the Golden Globes.
Yet on a less obvious, artistic level, it doesn’t make much sense at all. Writing for characters, and fitting her style into the tenor of an existing film, isn’t consistent with Swift’s m.o., which favors an inward-looking songwriting process that tends to attract such adjectives as confessional, »
