Over the past month, we’ve gotten tastes of the Fifty Shades Of Grey soundtrack thanks to Ellie Goulding‘s “Love Me Like You Do” and The Weeknd‘s slinky “Earned It.” Now, we have Sia‘s cut — titled “Salted Wound.” Judging from the wording, one would expect an intense and painful song. Instead, what we have is a delicate, euphoric ballad that finds the singer’s vocals floating over a haunting violin and harp production.
The Fifty Shades Of Grey soundtrack drops on February 10 and includes features from Jessie Ware, Annie Lennox and a slowed-down version of Beyonce‘s “Crazy In Love.” If you’re feeling naughty, treat your significant other for Valentine’s Day weekend when the film releases on February 13. More »
There are few more passionately dedicated fanbases than Taylor Swift‘s Swifties. Just ask Diplo about it! And when Tay Tay’s in trouble, you can bet: They’re going to be freaking the f–k out about it.

The accounts in question are seemingly run by the leader of a Lizard Squard, a hacking collective allegedly also responsible for the brief Facebook outage last night. Although the mystery tweets only lingered in cyberspace for about 15 minutes, the damage was already done, and the entirety of the fan base briefly lost it on Twitter.

Milo Greene stole hearts in 2012 with their self-titled, cinematically dreamy debut that included haunting jams “Autumn Tree” and “1957.” In the wake of their success, the four lead singer/songwriters of the band — Andrew Heringer, Robbie Arnett, Marlana Sheetz and Graham Fink — challenged themselves to grow and evolve for their next record.
Out today (January 27), Control features a more driving, danceable sound that showcases each member both individually and in harmony with the others on bops like “Lie to Me,” “White Lies” and “On The Fence.”
As they’re prepping to go out on their first headlining tour, Marlana Sheetz chatted with Idolator and gave her thoughts on everything from what it’s like to be in a band with no clear leader, her surprising musical influences and her childhood dream to join the House of Dereon. More »
