James Blake’s New Album Will Drop in “About Five Months,” May Feature Kanye West

James Blake isn’t one to take a break. While the UK crooner and electronic producer’s last album, Overgrown, came out in 2012, he’s been hard at work since, touring the globe, DJing sets, and dropping new songs “200 Press” and “Building It Still.” Now, the singer-songwriter has announced his next album is on the way.

In an interview with the Miami New Times (via CoS), Blake said that the new album is “seventy percent done” and should drop in “about five months.” For those of you following his mini updates, the Kanye West rumors are …

Pusha T Surprises Fans With The Release Of “Lunch Money”

Oh shit. The rest of hip-hop might as well take the day off because Pusha T and Kanye West just delivered a surprise track that is going to have people talking until long after the sun goes down.

Featuring a beat that makes “Numbers On The Board” sound like child’s play, “Lunch Money” finds King Push going in over a production that could have only been conceived by Yeezus himself. It sounds like a sci-fi flick meets an underground drug ring, and the lyrics serve as a strong reminder why Pusha T is the hottest emcee in music today. You …

Kanye West Reworks Lorde’s “Yellow Flicker Beat” For ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part One’ Soundtrack

While the chances of Kayne West dropping a new record in 2014 are looking grim, we’ve been blessed with a couple of great remixes from Yeezy in the past few months. The latest addition to his creative body of work is a re-tooling of Lorde’s contribution to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part One soundtrack.

Kanye shows his powerful production skills in a toned-down and ambient rendition of the New Zealand singer’s latest single. While I was hoping for a verse, it’s clear that it wouldn’t have been a necessary addition – the track serves as a reminder that Kanye’s production …

Future Hit: Theophilus London Featuring Kanye West – “Can’t Stop”

A track where Kanye raps like the days before Yeezus? Yes please.

Trinidadian-born Brooklyn rapper Theophilus London is set to release his Sophomore album next week, and earlier today an advance stream of the record found its way online. The album was executive produced by Kanye West, but what made us perk up was the fact Yeezus also contributes a new verse to the album on a laid back track titled “Can’t Stop.” We spun the album three or four times before we realized we hadn’t posted it yet, so here we are ready to share the party with …

The nonsense took place at Qantas Credit Union Arena in Sydney, Australia on Friday night. In the middle of his show, West reportedly announced, “I can’t do this song. I can’t do this show until everybody stand up… Unless you got …

Big Sean Signs With Roc Nation, Shares Four New Songs

Big Sean has been making headlines in recent months because of his rumored relationship with Ariana Grande more than his music, but that all changed this week when Sean announced he had signed with Roc Nation. He now shares representation with the same people who handle the likes of Meek Mill, Shakira, and DJ Mustard. Sean, always the type to celebrate, then took to Twitter with a tease promising new music on Friday (September 12).

Last night, Sean made good on his promise to fans by sharing not one, but four brand new tracks. The songs feature …

Two New Kanye West Songs Teased During ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’

Time seems to move slower when you know that a new Kanye West album will be hitting shelves soon. Yeezy is supposedly dropping a new record this Fall, and we’ve hit the point of Kanye pre-season where leaks are slowly starting to drip out. As discovered by posters on KanyeToThe, snippets of a brand new Kanye track called “Awesome” and a new remix of “Niggas In Paris” can be heard between scenes of the season finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

While there isn’t much to work with here, the small bit of “Awesome” sounds like standard-fare …

Kanye West and Paul McCartney Are Recording a Song Called “Piss on My Grave”

It won’t be long until Kanye West shares his next full-length and, as such, the details keep rolling out. According to Page Six, it looks like Paul McCartney may have a hand in the new music.

The two have supposedly recorded a number of new tracks together which “could develop into an album,” one of which is called “Piss on My Grave.” It seems too ridiculous to be a true, but a clip of the song has surfaced online, making it seem a little more likely. Listen to that preview after the jump.

Then again, McCartney has expressed his …

Leaks are a tricky subject in the world of music blogging. On one hand, we want to do our best to bring you the latest and greatest music available regardless of how we find it.

It’s a fine line we tip toe on a day-to-day basis, and this morning we decided sharing just one early leak would not be the death of us. Let’s hope we’re correct.
