Gwen Stefani reveals information on upcoming album!

Attention everyone: Supreme goddess Gwen Stefani has unveiled the title, release date, cover art, and track listing for her highly anticipated third solo album!!





The album is titled This Is What the Truth Feels Like, and it's due out March 18.

Ugh, the bitch doesn't age

Update (2/12): Here's the standard, non-Target cover for the album.


1. Misery
2. You’re My Favorite
3. Where Would I Be?
4. Make Me Like You
5. Truth
6. Used to Love You
7. Send Me a Picture
8. Red Flag
9. Asking for It
10. Naughty
11. Me Without You
12. Rare


An exclusive Target deluxe edition – which you can pre-order here – includes four bonus tracks. Following "Used to Love You," the album's second single, "Make Me Like You," is set to impact mainstream radio next Tuesday, February 16. Stefani is also teaming up with Target to produce the video for the song, to be directed by Sophie Muller, who helmed several of Stefani's videos. The video will be acted out, filmed and broadcast live during a four-minute commercial break from the 58th Annual Grammy Awards on CBS on February 15, marking the first music video ever created on live television. Who else but the Queen?

I'm can't fucking wait! By the way, I'm so glad Gwen eventually came to her senses and scrapped an entire album in favor of new, fresh material – now we can just pretend that the god-awful singles "Baby Don't Lie" and "Spark the Fire" never happened. Following her tumultuous divorce from Gavin Rossdale and judging by lead single "Used to Love You," I was hoping the album would deliver some top-notch ballads in the vein of "Early Winter," "4 in the Morning" and "Don't Speak." Though I'm not yet sure how her recent relationship with Blake Shelton (yuck) might have affected the overall mood of the record.

As much as I adore No Doubt, I have such a deep connection to Gwen's solo music. It's a damn shame that some people judge her solo career based on her biggest hit "Hollaback Girl," which is far from her best song. Love. Angel. Music. Baby. and The Sweet Escape were both really important albums for pop culture, and her music was accompanied by such unique, striking visuals. I love how most of her iconic videos had a theme, with references ranging from Alice in Wonderland and The Sound of Music. Seriously, none of her contemporaries did what she was doing back then much like when fellow platinum-haired, Italian-American Lady Gaga burst onto the scene in 2008.

Are you guys as excited as I am? What do you expect of Gwen's upcoming masterpiece? Share your thoughts in the comment section, sluts.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

Tusse releases French Language Version of "Voices"

In case you missed Eurovision this past weekend - and if you're an American, you likely did - there were some truly talented acts among those competing for this year's prestigious title. There were some pretty boring acts, and there were only a few of truly strange contestants this time around (bummer).  Sweden's act Tusse was pretty talented; his joyful and uplifting track "Voices" was actually one of the few that seemed rather memorable to me. Turns out he's releasing it in French - which makes sense, as Tusse is Kongo-Kinshasa born. Tusse is enormously popular in Sweden from what I can tell, having won both Melodifestivalen (Sweden's precursor to Eurovision) and Swedish Idol. He's a talented guy, and I'm sure we're just seeing the start of what is bound to be a long and prolific career.   (you might not be able to watch this outside of Sweden so, see below) The French version of "Voices" is available for streaming here .  Also, whi

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
