After previewing the November 3rd release of his 45th studio album Accentuate The Positive with the single "Shakin' All Over", Van Morrison today provides another taste of the record with his take on The Everly Brothers' classic "Problems". The song received its first play last night courtesy of Cerys Matthews on Radio 2.

Van Morrison reshapes "Problems" into his own inimitable style. He transforms the song into an exuberant R&B groove while his vintage blues and soul vocal provides a world-weary twist on the original's lyrics of teenaged woe. It's also a relatively deep cut from The Everly Brothers' back catalogue, having reached #6 when it was released in 1959. (continue)

(hennemusic) Metallica is sharing video of a performance of the title track to their latest album, "72 Seasons", from a September 9 show at State Farm Stadium in Phoenix, AZ.

"72 seasons. The first 18 years of our lives that form our true or false selves," explained James Hetfield about the title. "The concept that we were told 'who we are' by our parents. A possible pigeonholing around what kind of personality we are. I think the most interesting part of this is the continued study of those core beliefs and how it affects our perception of the world today. Much of our adult experience is re-enactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry." (continue)

Death Valley Dreams just released their new single "Leave Me Alone" featuring guest vocals from Brandon Yeagley of Crobot. To celebrate we asked Nick Coyle to tell us about the track. The band features Coyle's ex-Cold bandmate Johnny Nova, as well as TJ Bell (Escape The Fate), Ryan Williams, and Jasper Joyner. Here is the story:

"Leave Me Alone" started as a song that guitarist, Johnny Nova and I were passing back and forth and working on separately. Then we got together and had a power session and finished most of it. We kept thinking it was missing something though. We were hearing a higher voice in the second verse and the choruses. Who was going to be that guy? (continue)
