Now, with new single “Unmissable” on the way, the UK duo have unveiled the creature-feature cover for their upcoming debut album Sirens (out October 7… More »
Chris Brown is something of a serial offender when it comes to terrible covers. F.A.M.E. was a multi-colored mess, while Graffiti looked like the bad movie poster. It’s something of a relief then that his much-delayed X opus (due September 16) benefits from simple but effective artwork. He didn’t need to use an old picture (Breezy looks… More »

See Nicki’s… More »
Erasure announced their upcoming LP The Violet Flame this past spring, as well as its release date of September 23.
