— New Music Monday

It seems like today has been every artist’s first pick to present new music and here are some of the most noteworthy releases!

image

Eminem - “Berzerk” [x]

During this year’s MTV VMAs, Eminem announced his return into the music scene and fans have been on the edge of their seats waiting for Slim Shady’s rebirth. He released the audio for his new track, “Berzerk,” a week ago and put out the official music video today. He brings back “straight hip hop” with this funky, old school video.

image

Miley Cyrus - “Wrecking Ball” [x]

To be perfectly honest, I did not watch this music video. But according to my twitter timeline, Miley spends the video in barely there clothing, riding a wrecking ball and licking a hammer with just a hint of emotional distress and pain hidden amongst her words. So, decide for yourself. If you watch, tell me your opinion on it!

image

Ellie Goulding - “How Long Will I Love You?” [x]

I feel as if Ellie Goulding releases a new song every other week now, but I’m certainly not complaining. “How Long Will I Love You?” is Ellie’s new song written for the movie About Time, a romantic comedy/science fiction film starring Domhnall Gleeson and Rachel McAdams coming out in November in the US. This song is PERFECT rom-com material, being slow and emotional-filled with piano and string instrumentals for days. You may or may not need tissues are watching this one.

image

Eddie Murphy ft. Snoop Lion - “Red Light” [x]

Okay, read the title again. And again. Once more for clarity. Now breathe. IT’S ACTUALLY PRETTY GOOD. Once upon a time, Eddie Murphy was actually a signed solo artist and now he’s back with the first single off his upcoming record “9.” He recruited the help of his friend Snoop Lion to bring the world this thought-provoking reggae hit with a stirring music video to accompany it.

image

Travie McCoy ft. Jason Mraz - “Rough Water” [x]

It’s been a while since the world has heard anything from the solo career of Gym Class Heroes’ lead singer. But today, Travie released “Rough Water” on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show. The song is super easy-going and makes you want to grab the one you love and tell them that you’ll never leave their side (unless you’re single like me, then you just want to cry from loneliness).

                             / / H O N O R A B L E M E N T I O N S / /

Here’s some of the best cover videos that come out today as well!

image

Allison Weiss - “Au Revoir (Adios)” [x]
Originally by The Front Bottoms

In honor of their new UK tour together, Allison Weiss covered The Front Bottoms’ “Au Revoir (Adios),” playing every instrument by herself and doing a pretty fantastic job. Watch the original version here.

image

Bastille - “We Can’t Stop” [x]
Originally by Miley Cyrus

BBC Radio1’s Live Lounge brings in the hottest acts from across the land to perform live for our viewing pleasure. This week, they brought in Bastille, an up-and-coming alternative rock band from London, who did a brilliant cover of Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” and even brought in a few wise words from Miley’s dad, Billy Ray. Watch the original version here.

image

Troye Sivan - “Heartbreak Girl” [x]
Originally by 5 Seconds of Summer

Australian power! Troye Sivan, Australia’s resident YouTube cutie, released a piano cover of “Heartbreak Girl,” a song by 5 Seconds of Summer, an Australian pop rock band who are hot on the rise. Watch the original version here.

Hey Everyone, I’m Jerrad :) I know none of you know me, but if you could, please just take the time to read this. I want to make this happen so extremely bad for the girl I love. I want to spend the rest of my life with her and I want to give her the BEST proposal ever.Please, if you could, RT this on Twitter, Re-blog on TUMBLR, and if you are going to any concert before September 28th, Print out the picture out and take it with you, try to give it to the band, or just throw them around so others will maybe see it.I appreciate every single one of you who has already took it on your own to help me out. I also have a Twitter account called @HelpMeFOB that so many people have been tweeting to the band, RT the picture etc. in case you’d like to follow.I’m so sorry for asking, I feel like its rude to ask something like this but I never expected to have it become as big as it has been and got so much attention. Thank you so much for your time and I wish every single one of you who reads or comes across this the best in life. Again, thank you!
