(hennemusic) U2 is streaming their new album, "Songs Of Surrender", in sync with its release on March 17. Curated and produced by The Edge, the package delivers 40 songs from the group's extensive history that were re-recorded during sessions over the past two years and includes "a musical reimagining" resulting in completely new recordings of each track, to include the arrangements and, in some cases, new lyrics.

"Music allows you to time travel," explains The Edge, "And we became curious to find out what it would be like to bring our early songs back with us to the present day and give them the benefit, or otherwise, of a 21st century re-imagining. What started out as an experiment quickly developed into a personal obsession as so many of our songs yielded to a new interpretation. Intimacy replaced post-punk urgency. New tempos, new keys, and in some cases new chords and new lyrics arrived. A great song, it turns out is kind of indestructible. (continue)

Jeff Rouse's Dark, Post-Punk Project The Gemini Affair have released their 3rd single, "We Love The Night" which comes from their upcoming EP release "To...."

"We love the night was written and recorded before the world that I knew was shut down. To say that feels like old news. And to look back it feels like I was a different person. I have always been attracted to darkness of the night and had also been attracted to the darkness in people as well. There is something about feeling invisible and invincible that the darkness brings. What I now see is that living in the light doesn't necessarily mean the darkness is who and how I have to live. Black will always be the color that I wear and that shade will always be prevalent when the songs appear. We Love The Night was born in the dark. But I think what comes through is that trying to find the light is worth the fight," says Jeff Rouse (continue)
