Gwen Stefani Returns With “Baby Don’t Lie” Music Video

A few years ago, people were starting to wonder where Gwen Stefani went, but lately it seems the singer is determined to keep a full plate. Having recently had her second child, and reunited with her band No Doubt, Stefani is also now a judge on NBC’s hit reality series, The Voice. But that’s not all; Stefani has indicated that not only will No Doubt be putting out a new album, but that she herself would be working on a new solo album with the help of The Voice co-host Pharrell Williams.

Well, here we are, looking …

Nick Jonas Kicks Off Solo Career By Premiering “Chains”

There aren’t too many musicians who start off in an ultra-famous gimmicky band then successfully transition to a solo career. Justin Timberlake is a prime example of a musician who was able to shake off his past and move forward to be a relevant pop star. The latest artist who hopes to make a similar transformation is the youngest Jonas brother, Nick Jonas. The brotherly band officially broke up last year, and he has taken the opportunity to sign to a label as a solo artist as well as rebrand himself. He plans on releasing his debut solo album …

Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O Announces Debut Solo Record, ‘Crush Songs’

Last year the Yeah Yeah Yeahs put out Mosquito, but it seems juggling that and music for Spike Jonze’s Her wasn’t enough to keep fontwoman Karen O busy. She’s just announced she will be dropping her first ever solo album, Crush Songs, September 9 via Cult (Julian Casablancas’ label). That’s the album art to the left.

It may come as a surprise that this is Karen O’s first solo record, but don’t forget that she only contributed one song to Her (the co-written “The Moon Song”) and composed the soundtrack for Where the Wild Things Are under the name Karen …

Rome (of Sublime) Announces Solo Album, Streams Lead Single

Rome rose to fame when he became the Sublime frontman longtime fans of the group were willing to tolerate. Now that he has established his voice in the music business, Rome is stepping out on his own with a new solo record titled Get Free, and earlier today we received the album’s first single.

Knowing that Rome spends the majority of his time with Sublime you may think his solo material would sound similar, but aside from a few hints of so-cal punk ethos Rome’s first foray into solo material is a departure from his usual material. “If The …

Stream Landon Tewers’ (The Plot In You) Debut Single

It’s not unusual for members of bands to work on solo music while they are still in their band. Tilian Pearson, Tyler Carter, Craig Owens and many others all have at least a few tracks they wrote outside of their respective bands. With that being the case, I found it a little surprising to learn that The Plot In You‘s frontman, Landon Tewers, has started his own solo project.

He launched his Facebook page only a few days ago, and he already has his debut single up. The song is titled “Ma And Pa,” and you can …

Andre 3000 and Big Boi to Release Solo Albums Before Outkast Record

Despite the excitement over former Outkast manager Queen Latifah confirming rumors of Outkast’s new material, it seems fans will have to wait a little while longer before Andre 3000 and Big Boi release a collaborated effort.

Outkast‘s producer Mr. DJ told Revolt that the material being recorded was actually solo albums. However, Mr. DJ believes that a new Outkast record may still be on the horizon. The duo are, in fact, still heading out on a 40-date festival tour this year.

“I get the feeling that the energy and camaraderie from the tour will bring everything full circle. We …

LYRIC VIDEO: Sons Of The Sea (Incubus’ Brandon Boyd With Brendan O’Brien) – “Lady Black”

Earlier this month, we learned of Brandon Boyd’s second solo release being a work with producer Brendan O’Brien, and that he had titled the “band” Sons of the Sea. The EP, Compass, comes out tomorrow, June 25; the Incubus front man released a lyric video on Elle.com today. It should also be noted that in the Elle article, they call the Goo Goo Dolls and Incubus grunge. We just want to point that out.

Boyd indicated this was the first time he had written with people other than Incubus. He said, “When [producer] Brendan O’Brien said he
