Two years, ago, while pondering the significance of punctuation marks and symbols used in pop star names, the gentleman of Holy Ghost! told us the following: “Nothing is more profound than the $ in Ke$ha.” And that, dear readers, is when we knew Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel were a pair of truly brilliant minds.

Cut to now. Dynamics, the New York duo’s follow-up to their self-titled 2011 debut LP, has been announced for a September 10 release through DFA Records. Just going off new song titles like “Dumb Disco Ideas” and “Dance A Little Closer,” it seems the guys’ penchant for the catchy, upbeat pop that filled their first album is still intact.

Another good indicator that Holy Ghost!’s new LP is going to be amazing: the synth-fueled “Teenagers In Heat,” a James Murphy co-production that falls somewhere between New Order at their most pop and something off an OMD greatest hits compilation.

Icona Pop is prepping the follow up to gigantic crossover hit “I Love It” and it looks like the spunky Swedes are going with a new tune called “Just Another Night” instead of the originally slated “Girlfriend”. The song hasn’t leaked yet — it is expected to drop on Tuesday (16 July) — but what appears to be a LQ version of the cover art has (above) and it’s a typically stylish affair. A video is also on the way and will be directed by Marc Klasfeld, the mastermind behind Katy Perry‘s iconic “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” — so expect something epic! More »

Wallpaper. will unleash their debut album upon unsuspecting music fans on July 23. The genre-defying band, fronted by Bay Area MC Ricky Reed, has been steadily building hype and winning fans for the past couple of years with their oddball party jams and outrageous remixes. Today they unveiled the cover and tracklist of the suitably-titled Ricky Reed Is Real and we couldn’t be more excited.

From the moment “#STUPiDFACEDD” went viral, we knew Wallpaper. was an act to watch. The pop culture junkies have reinforced that with each subsequent release – most of which, somewhat surprisingly, are absent from the final cut. Happily, they have included the poetic “Puke My Brains Out” and are even offering new single “Drunken Hearts” as a free download if you pre-order on iTunes (available June 18). More »

Last time around for Robin Thicke, his album Love After War failed to crack the Billboard 200′s Top 20 in 2011. That’s not surprising, given that the two singles — the LP’s title track and the Lil Wayne-assisted “Pretty Lil’ Heart” — stiffed at radio. But 2013 is a different story.

Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” capped the Hot 100 this week, marking the crooner’s first trip to the top of the main singles chart. Last night the song got an even bigger boost when Jimmy Kimmel aired a clip of Robin and Pharrell being joined while performing it at a MySpace party by a happy-go-lucky, gum-cracking Miley Cyrus.

All this bodes well for Thicke’s Blurred Lines album, which now has a release date (July 30), cover art (see above) and a tracklist (see below) — which, in addition to Pharrell and T.I., features Kendrick Lamar, on the song “Give It 2 U.” More »

Ricky Martin has spent the past few months Down Under as one of the judges on The Voice Australia but – happily, for us – the Latin superstar managed to squeeze in some studio time between episodes.

“Come With Me” is the handiwork of local producers DNA, who have a vice-like grip on the Australian pop charts – churning out smash hits for Guy Sebastian, Jessica Mauboy, Timomatic and Stan Walker. They specialize in upbeat dance-pop and have given Ricky one of their finest radio-ready anthems (at least, if the preview is any indication). More »

Budding pop diva Victoria Justice graciously shared her “Gold” single cover with fans on Twitter this afternoon (June 11). It’s a typically perky affair with the Victorious starlet looking bronzed to perfection. She could have chosen a nicer font but you can’t have everything.

The first taste of the 20-year-old’s debut album drops on June 18. It will be interesting to see the direction she takes, particularly given the massive success big-lunged castmate Ariana Grande is experiencing with “The Way”. More »

Let’s get one thing out of the way: my own feelings aside on Goldfrapp‘s last album, 2010′s Head First (I loved it), Alison Goldfrapp herself is not fond of the record. Last year, during an interview for Idolator, she said to me, “For me, if I’m being completely myself, I didn’t like the last album very much. I’m not very proud of that one. I think there are some good tunes on there. I feel like we should have given them to someone else instead of us releasing them as Goldfrapp.”

So enter new album Tales Of Us, which was just announced this morning. The duo have a September 9 release date set for the 10-track LP, and a few songs off it can be previewed via a black and white trailer — which you can watch below! More »

Clutch those pearls, Cher fans! The timeless entertainer’s oft-delayed comeback is finally gaining real momentum with a live performance of future club classic “Woman’s World” scheduled for the season finale of The Voice on June 18.

If that isn’t enough to make you spin “A Song For The Lonely” on repeat, revisit Burlesque and unsuccessfully attempt to decipher her Twitter feed for the 100th time, perhaps the just-unveiled “Woman’s World” cover will get you there. More »

That Justin Timberlake reign will not let up any time soon. The super-suave singer is still climbing the Hot 100 with “Mirrors”Ryan Lewis and Macklemore‘s monster smash “Can’t Hold Us” is the only thing standing between JT and a fifth number one hit – but he’s already plotting his next move, selecting “Tunnel Vision” as the third single from The 20/20 Experience.

Another slow and sexy nod to ’90s R&B, the almost seven-minute anthem is set for release on July 15. Justin also unveiled the cover art, which depicts the triple threat’s handsome face – or a naked woman, depending on how you view it. Yes, it’s a rather impressive optical illusion. More »

No, silly — Pink is not done with her Truth About Love album campaign yet just because she’s already clinched three consecutive Top 10 singles, including one (“Just Give Me A Reason”) that spent three weeks atop the Hot 100. (After all, her Truth About Love Tour is pretty much endless. She’s clearly in this thing for the long haul.)

This, then, brings us to “True Love,” the previously-announced fourth single from the album — the one that features outspoken Brit Lily Rose Cooper (aka Lily Allen). Like “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” and “Try,” “True Love” was produced by Greg Kurstin. And following the heartbreak jams “Try” and “Just Give Me A Reason,” we’d say this mid-tempo pop number is a nice, upbeat change of pace for Pink. A return to the singer’s sassier side, if you will.
