Coldplay Release New Single “Miracles”

Everyone’s favorite adult contemporary radio act Coldplay have released a new track called “Miracles.” The song is taken from the soundtrack to the film Unbroken, which is due out in stores December 15 via Atlantic Records.

“Miracles” sounds like your typical Coldplay song – ringing acoustic guitars, piano, a slightly uplifting snap track to keep the beat, and Chris Martin’s easily distinguishable voice take control of the fold here. If you like Coldplay, you’ll be happy with this one.

Martin also recently confirmed that the band is working on a new record, which may or may not be the …

Decide How You Want Coldplay’s New Music Video For “Ink” To Play Out

With about 300 available outcomes for Coldplay‘s new interactive music video for their song, “Ink,” viewers can decide the different paths taken by the main character during his quest for a lost lover. Each selection a viewer makes changes the scenario’s outcome, but ultimately results in a conclusion that coincides with the song’s disheartening sentiments.

Directed by Los Angeles agency, Blind, with the help of a media company called Interlude, the music video features a stunningly animated storyline that accentuates the magic brought about by the heartbreaking track’s mystique.

“Ink” is taken from Coldplay’s most recent full-length album, Ghost

Charli-XCX-Sucker

Charli XCX Releases Yet Another Punchy Single With “Breaking Up”

It’s almost criminal that Charli XCX‘s sophomore album, Sucker, is dropping in December (for now). Old Charli made sense in cooler months, slick and moody alt-pop that had unfortunate timing in coinciding with Lorde’s rise. This sophomore album has taken a hard left into sun-drenched pop of blissful youth, steering determinedly into the unexpected success of “Boom Clap.” I’m working on a comparison to Avril Lavigne’s shift from Under My Skin to The Best Damn Thing, but it needs some work. They both even have hearts!

Much like past singles “Break the Rules,” “London

Charli XCX Pushes Back ‘Sucker,’ Shares New Album Art

Following a steady slew of good news from Charli XCX, we have a bit of a downer: the release of her sophomore album Sucker has been pushed back from October 21 to December 16 in the US. The album won’t see light in Europe until next year, with January 26 set for the UK/Europe drop date.

The singer took to Twitter to explain the delay, citing the better-than-expected success of “Boom Clap” as being a major reason. She assured fans that “nothing’s WRONG the albums DONE” and that she just wants to make sure she “can launch the album …

Charli XCX Wants To “Break The Rules” And Put Out This New Album, ‘Sucker’

Many ages ago, in a time before “Boom Clap” and “Fancy” appeared against the radio horizon, Charli XCX released a candystriped single called “Superlove.” It was, presumably, a precursor to a second album. News of that second album was a long time coming, though. We got a few cool covers, and then, well, Iggy and The Fault In Our Stars swept us all away.

Now, though, we have word of that album. It’s called Sucker, and it’s out on October 21 via Neon Gold/Atlantic. This news is ushered in with a second, obviously-timed single called “Break …

Lupe Fiasco Discusses Label Frustrations and Ponders Retirement In New Interview

Lupe Fiasco has taken an odd turn over the last couple of years. For a short time, he was the music industry’s golden goose, but when his motivations for creating music became more message-based and political many turned their backs. I still dig Lupe, and I know many of you do too. Unfortunately, his label may soon cause us to lose one of the greatest voices urban music has ever encountered.

Speaking with Angie Martinez in a new interview, Fiasco opened up about problems with his label while discussing plans for his next album. He said, “[I want to] just …

Lykke Li Adds To Lengthy Schedule With North American ‘I Never Learn’ Tour

The album cycle for Lykke Li‘s latest rolls on. Following the release of I Never Learn just over a month ago on Atlantic Records, the Swedish songstress has announced a tour of the same name.

Following several standard summer festival dates, Lykke Li will come over to North America for a tour of, per the poster, 13 dates. That poster promises “more dates to be announced soon…” though. If your state lies nowhere near the current route, it’s quite possible it will soon. Maybe go see The Fault In Our Stars while you wait, which features a non-album song

Following up on their previous bizarre video for “Evil Friends,” Portugal. The Man‘s music video for “Purple Yellow Red And Blue” couldn’t be any more off the walls. The song will be featured on PTM’s forthcoming album, Evil Friends, which will hit stores early into this summer through Atlantic Records.

The Oregon-based indie act has drawn together quite the following over the last several years, and their recent sets at Coachella really show that perhaps they may be on the verge of putting out one of their best records to date. Follow the jump to watch the music …

Lupe Fiasco Talks Violence In Media

Lupe Fiasco took to Twitter last night to rant about violence in the media and especially music industry life. Read what he had to say below and let UTG know what you thought!

Violent music (and all violent media) effectively says its “ok” to be violent. It provides positive reinforcement for negative actions. If you rap and make violent music then own up to it. Stop hiding behind “art imitating life” as a way to evade the guilt. “How the hell you gonna tell this man not 2 be violent?, Cuz he dont need to go the same route that

MUSIC VIDEO: Wiz Khalifa Ft. Akon – “Let It Go”

Pittsburgh’s own Wiz Khalifa has teamed up with Akon to release the visuals for his single “Let It Go” and it packs a punch.

The video shows a couple of boxers rising the ranks and working hard to fulfill their dreams. Practice makes perfect in this case! This song comes off of Khalifa’s latest album, O.N.I.F.C., which arrived back in December of last year through Atlantic Records. Purchase right here.
