Listen to Pink's New Single "What About US"

Pink is back and she has a new single out for all of us to enjoy.

The singer’s last album debuted five years ago, so it’s exciting to see her rev up for her latest one. The title of the album will be called Beautiful Trauma and is set to release October 13th.

All of this information was revealed by the singer herself late last night through an Instagram post which you can find right below.

And then early this morning she kept the ball rolling by releasing her single on Youtube. There is no video to it, only audio, but it was written with Steve Mac and Snow Patrol member Johnny McDaid who also produced it.

Check out the song down below.

Lady Gaga Kicks Off Tour With A Big Gay Performance

Lady Gaga has kicked off her Joanne tour in Vancouver, Canada in a big gay way. During her performance, Gaga asked for a rainbow flag that had fallen not far from the stage and she held it up with much pride.

As she posed and held for the applause, she exclaimed:

The most important thing that I have to say about it is that everybody’s gotta love each other. You got to stop throwing stones at your sisters and your brothers. Cause man, it wasn’t that long ago we were all just living in the jungle.

Then, quoting her song “Come to Mama” she declared:

So for any of you who don’t believe in equality that are here this evening, come to mama.

Mother Monster then sat at her glistening diamond piano and began to sing with love for equality.

Check out the performance:

Independent Recording Artist T'Quan Sings About Love

Independent recording artist T'Quan has released his new single Tightrope, a ballad and lovesong for all ages about loving, losing and seeking to love again.

Listen here

 

 

The return of the artist comes after a several year-long journey where T'Quan worked on reinvention and focusing energy on creating a new sound that played to the ears of those "learning to navigate the ups and downs of love" according to a press release.

T'Quan states:

For me, 2017 has been all about discovery and seizing opportunities. I’m independently produced and I’m in the studio constantly. I’m making the music I believe everyone can relate to, specifically my fans who want to see an LGBTQ person of color reflected in songs and stories.

T'Quan has also documented his journey through social media, where he has shared his musical mini stories and his presence as an up and coming queer artist.

Superfruit Debuts New Song 'Worth It (Perfect)'

In case you've been looking for the perfect summer anthem--here it is! Mitch Grassi and Scott Hoying, better known as the popular music duo Superfruit, debuted a their new song and video Worth It (Perfect) today just in time for your pool parties, barbecues, beach days, or cruising with your shades on.

Worth It (Perfect) is part of Superfruit’s new album Future Friends: Part One available now and Part Two which will be out on iTunes and other major online stores on September 15th.

The video, which features Kaycee Rice and Sage Rosen, is a non-stop dance routine that defies gender roles as Rice (dressed in a tuxedo) and Rosen (sporting a flowy pink dress) use Superfruit’s song to portray effortless choreography that debunks stereotypes and the expected. An artistic expression in support of transgender youth.

Here's the video--I dare you to not bob your head up and down:

Grassi and Hoying are also members of the Grammy-award winning a capella Pentatonix that has changed the music game with their unique sound.

Thanks for the beats, boys! Now to get that choreography down to practice in front of the mirror.

Beyoncé Posts First Picture of Twins Sir And Rumi

If you scared, call that reverend--because Beyoncé just unloaded the first image of her new twins, Sir and Rumi and the world is SHOOK! Sir, in reference to a knight in shining armor, and Rumi, a 13th century poet who taught others to release their “imprisoned spirit” by dancing--two names that fit perfectly with the royal family of the recording world.

Posing in what I definitely think is her freakum dress and a blue veil, the Queen B is looking sweet and angelic with her newborns the whole beyhive has been dying to see. A picture that echoes a similar maternity photo from months ago.

 

Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today.

2.4m Likes, 121k Comments - Beyoncé (@beyonce) on Instagram: "Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today. "

 

Bey has a knack for pulling out special surprises to snatch the limelight and keep people on their toes. Can she do no wrong?

Well--earlier this year she DID cancel her headlining performances at Coachella, sending thousands of cries of disappointment up to the heavens. But that's only because she had these two bundles of joy ready to pop out of her! We forgive you, Bey! See you in 2018!

Welcome to social media world, Sir and Rumi! You have some big Blue shoes to fill.

Shines So Bright

It’s been two years since Bright Light Bright Light, also known as Rod Thomas, released his debut album Make Me Believe In Hope. In that time, the Welshman has moved to Brooklyn, recorded an album with pop collective Slow Knights (headed by Scissor Sisters’ Del Marquis), developed an indie following across the States and become friends with a certain pop music legend. We caught up with Rod in the weeks prior to the release of his sophomore album, Life Is Easy, and caught up on music, moving and Mr. Elton John.

You moved to New York after you finished your first album. Did your life there affect this new record?  
The point of moving was so that it did affect it. I wanted new surroundings and stimulus to provoke new ideas and points of view, and I really found that in New York… I met a great circle of musicians who I exchange with—we sing for each other, write with each other.

You’ve been bouncing between solo records and recording with [Instinct fave] Slow Knights. That group is amazing!  Is there another record happening?
Being part of a New York artist community really changed my life. For the first time ever as a musician I felt part of something, which I never found before. It’s a really uplifting and heartwarming thing to find. I love the fluidity of working in varying forms, numbers, guises … Yes there’s more coming from Slow Knights, we’ve been working on the second album. It’s definitely more like being in a party than when I do the solo shows, and for Slow Knights I’m not at the lead, so it’s a very new experience for me. I’ve co-written and produced Bridget Barkan (from Slow Knights) new single, which is out July 22. She’s one of the most talented people I’ve ever met—a real star and one of the most wonderful people.

What can we expect from Life Is Easy? We've heard some ballads from it, but there are actually some great summer bangers like “Good Luck.”
It’s an album full of hope and warmer tones. Even on the “bangers” I think the sounds are warmer, like on “I Believe.” The album shares a little about the people I met, the people I lost, finding a home thousands of miles across water and falling in love with making music again. But it’s about real things—people I love, my family and my new family.

Your last single is a duet with this unknown artist named…Elton John. Did you take a deep breath and say "Reginald, will you sing on my album?"
We’ve been friends for many years now after I joined the management company he owns, Rocket, back in 2007. He called after he heard my debut album, and we became good friends after realizing we had a lot in common—music we loved, sense of humor, outlook on certain things—and we talked about doing something together, so I played him “I Wish We Were Leaving” and he really liked it, so I asked him to sing on it and he said yes! I don’t think I’ll ever get over that fact.

Aside from your own tunes, what are two great songs for the summer of 2014?
“You Don’t Know What To Do” by Mariah Carey is MY SONG OF THE SUMMER. I’m completely obsessed with it and I’m very, very happy to hear her so full of energy. The album is, I think, my favorite of hers, and this song is just fantastic. Also, “Cobbler” by Kelis, partly because of the line I love: “You’ve got this feeling like a holiday,” but partly because it’s party-esque, laid-back vibe really makes me feel like I’m around a barbeque with lots of friends enjoying long summer nights. I love the Food record and go running to it all the time, and this song makes me smile every time.

Last year, you appeared in a book called 100 Beards 100 Days, so it’s no secret you’re a lover of bearded men. But really sir, are you prepared for the inevitable cultural shift to a smooth face?
No. I don’t think it suits me!

Life Is Easy is released on July 8. Check brightlightx2.com for tour updates.

Heart It or Hate It: "Resurrection" by Stella Parton

Stella Parton, singer/songwriter and younger sister of country music superstar Dolly Parton, has released a new album of dance remixes to some of her past hits from the 60s and 70s as well as a few new tracks.

Parton says about the album:

"The concept for this CD came from a suggestion to remix some of my previous songs into dance mixes. I thought that would be fun and after listening to the first remix, I said it is like we are resurrecting my songs. That is where the name "Resurrection" came from and I am proud to have written eight of the ten songs. I threw in three new songs that have never been recorded and I hope you like them."

Preview Parton's new album "Resurrection" here, listen to her current single 'Trouble on the Line' below and tell us, heart it or hate it?
