He won an Academy Award for his portrayal of a country singer in the film "Crazy Heart" and has even released two country albums, but his latest project is something that pretty much nobody expected. According to "The Wall Street Journal," Bridges has released an album of ambient music titled "Sleeping Tapes" and, as its name suggests, it is designed to help its listeners fall asleep -- that is the album cover above.READ MORE

Arcade Fire member Will Butler has shared the music video for his single "Anna" from his upcoming debut studio album "Policy," which you can check out below. The video takes a cue from Radiohead's "Lotus Flower" video and features a single shot of Butler dancing alone to the song in a dark field. It also doubles as a lyric video and features some crude animation to visualize certain lyrics and musical passages, such as the images of various forms of currency to go along with the "money" refrain.READ MORE

Snoop Dogg Drops New Verse on iLoveMakonnen's "21st Street" Remix [LISTEN]

Buzz 15:19PM EDT

Atlanta rapper ILoveMakonnen has shared a remix of his song "21st Street" featuring a new verse from Snoop Dogg, which you can check out below. The song originally appeared on Makonnen's 2014 mixtape Drink More Water 3, and again on Drink More Water 4, and according to XXL, this new remix was promised last year, when Makonnen shared its artwork (seen up above) through his Twitter account. The track features some pretty solid atmospheric production courtesy of DJ Spinz and Dun Deal, but Snoop is the real star here, delivering his verse with the same type of precise yet still relaxed flow that he's famous for.READ MORE

R&B singer The-Dream has shared the music video for his single "That's My S**t" featuring T.I., which you can check out below. The video finds The-Dream visiting some sort of weird, "Eyes Wide Shut" sex party with women in masks, while T.I. is playing dice back in his study. It may be misogynist, but at least it looks pretty different from your typical R&B/hip-hop music video.READ MORE

Charli XCX Records Japanese Versions of 'Boom Clap,' 'Break The Rules' [LISTEN]

Buzz 21:59PM EDT

Even though Charli XCX's great new album Sucker was released in the United States on Dec. 15, it doesn't come out in Japan until Feb. 8 for whatever reason. As a special treat for her Japanese fans who have been forced to wait so long on the album (the ones who haven't illegally downloaded it, anyway), XCX has recorded Japanese versions of two of the album's singles as bonus tracks: "Boom Clap" and "Break The Rules," which you can check out below. In true J-Pop fashion, these versions find XCX singing mostly in Japanese, but switching over to English for some key phrases (apparently there's no Japanese translation for "boom clap").READ MORE

Chief Keef Shares Song "Voodoo" [LISTEN]

Buzz 15:06PM EDT

Although he dropped a new song "Hiding" only yesterday, Jan. 27, Chicago drill star Chief Keef is back with yet another new track titled "Voodoo," which you can check out below. This time around, the production is handled by KC Beatz, who gives the track a better beat than what we normally hear on a Keef track, opting to go the atmospheric route with a trap beat underneath. Perhaps inspired by the better-than-usual beat, Keef actually makes an effort to be somewhat coherent in his delivery -- or, as "Hot New Hip-Hop" puts it -- the lyrics "verge on intelligible."READ MORE

War on Drugs's Adam Granduciel Discusses Sun Kil Moon Feud, New Music

Buzz 12:02PM EDT

One of the strangest and funniest music feuds in recent memory was the -- mostly -- one-sided battle between Sun Kil Moon and The War on Drugs from last year, throughout which War on Drugs frontman Adam Granduciel tried his best to take the high road and remain silent about the whole thing. Now, in a new interview with "Uncut," Granduciel has opened up a bit more about the feud, telling Sun Kil Moon frontman Mark Kozelek to "get over" himself and suggesting that Kozelek was perhaps "playing this part" instead of being genuinely outraged.READ MORE
