Given the release of both the Croods soundtrack duet “Shine Your Way” with Owl City and her springtime Sixth Street EP, it’s been a busy year for Yuna — and she’s not done keeping her fans supplied with fresh material just yet. The 26-year-old Malaysian singer will follow up last year’s self-titled international LP with the 11-track Nocturnal, due out October 29 on Verve.

The LP kicks off with the warm, finger-popping late-summer jam “Falling,” and offers up 10 more pop- and R&B-tinged songs, like “I Wanna Go” (produced by Michael Einziger of Incubus), “Mountains,” “Rescue” and “I Want You Back.”

Hear “Falling” and catch the full Nocturnal tracklist below. More »

Cher could pass for a woman half her age on the glorious cover of new LP Closer To The Truth. It must be all the time she spends in bed tweeting instead of baking in the hot California sun because the 67-year-old looks positively girlish lying seductively in bed.

The enduring diva ups the sexy ante even further by rocking a lace negligee and peroxide-blond wig. (I guess that legendary newspaper weave started to yellow). Talk about the wonders of Photoshop all you like but there’s no deny that the lady still has it. See Cher’s tweet revealing the cover after the jump. More »

Iggy Azalea is taking no chances with “Change Your Life”. The Aussie femcee previewed the Showgirls/Blade Runner-inspired video last month by posting a couple of pics on Instagram and today (August 14) she jumped on Twitter to share the cover.

It’s a typically sexy shot that finds the “Work” rapper wearing what appears to be a chain-metal bra. The track features mentor T.I. and drops later this month ahead of debut LP The New Classic. After that Iggy flies home to support Beyonce on the Australian leg of her Mrs. Carter Show world tour. #Winning. More »

KatyCats of the UK, though you won’t get Katy Perry‘s new single “Roar” until September 8 — a good three weeks after its American release date (August 12) — you’re now at least privy to an iTunes pre-order of the forthcoming first taste of Prism, complete with cover art. (This comes a day after the latest video tease of the Max Martin/Dr. Luke production, which features about a split-second of actual music.)

Perry tweeted out the UK iTunes pre-order link on Thursday (August 8) afternoon, featuring a reveal of straight-up 1987 “Roar” imagery. In it, Katy’s wearing what looks like some lost track jacket from the days when Samantha Fox and Def Leppard were a thing. Not quite sure about the tiger iron-on or the teenage Winona Ryder hair, but, you know — roar. More »

Tamar Braxton dropped her Love And War cover art today and it’s a typically dramatic affair. Toni’s little sister looks piping hot in a sexy black outfit. Well, what you can see of it peeping out from behind a layer of red. The much-anticipated LP contains the epic title track and breezy summer jam “The One”.

Also expected to make the tracklist is fan favorite “Hot Sugar” and new ballad “Finally”, which the big-lunged diva debuted at her recent LA showcase. On the strength of those songs alone, Tamar’s sophomore effort promises to be well worth a listen. Love And War hits stores September 3. More »

Ariana Grande Unveils Eye-Popping, High Kitsch ‘Yours Truly’ Album Cover

Ariana Grande unveiled the cover of her hotly-anticipated debut album on Twitter today (July 31) and it definitely leaves a lasting impression. Yours Truly — in stores September 3 — looks like a cross between an Anne Geddes calendar and a Victoria’s Secret catalogue. Not since Celine Dion‘s iconic Miracle cover art has an artist shown such refined taste and sophistication!

Jokes aside, the 20-year-old looks lovely (above the neck) but the babydoll styling and little girl pose is kind of alarming considering the fact she’s wearing lingerie while crouched on a bed of roses, pouting innocently for the camera. But as Ariana reminded us in a tweet: “it’s about the music.” And the music we’ve heard thus far has been very good indeed. See the kooky diva‘s tweets after the jump. More »

Avril Lavigne unveiled the cover of new single “Rock N Roll” in a tweet this afternoon (July 18). It shows the “Here’s To Never Growing Up” diva in a typically feisty mood. Chad Kroeger‘s beloved is depicted kicking up her heels — well, one actually — while reclining on a throne.

The 28-year-old is still taking a more-is-more approach to mascara but looks rather stylish in what appears to be an Abbey Dawn original. According to always reliable internet rumors, the song was written by Chad and Max Martin. So Nickelback with a dance beat? I’m open to it! See Avril’s tweet after the jump. More »

In case you didn’t get the memo, today is officially Who Can Outdo The Other With Their Respective Album Release News: Lady Gaga Or Justin Timberlake? Day. Unlike Mother Monster, however, JT isn’t making us wait a month for a new single. “Take Back The Night” has arrived, in all its late-’70s, Michael Jackson-esque glory, and so has official news of The 20/20 Experience – 2 Of 2.

Out on September 30, the 11-track, second part of Timberlake’s sales champ 20/20 is now available for pre-order on iTunes, as is the deluxe The 20/20 Experience – The Complete Experience, which — you guessed it — contains all 21 tracks from both releases. (Of course, it’s not totally the “complete experience,” given that Target bonus tracks “Dress On” and “Body Count” seem to have been left out in the cold. But I digress.) “Take Back The Night” comes as an instant download for those who pre-order either 2 Of 2 or The Complete Experience. More »

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. Listen and grab it as a free download below! More »

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 »
