"Until about two weeks ago, I had never listened to a Biggie song," Yachty said on Beats 1. "I'm not going to sit here and lie and say I just bump him. But I know for a fact he was spittin…. He snapped. I can't lie. I was listening to it and I liked how he do the role play, like he'd do a story wrapping back and forth with himself and then there'd be a skit. It was dope." Read morehere.

As fans know, frontman Lukas Forchhammer wrote the song about his late father Eugene Graham, who passed away and left the artist bereft.

Menzel sings the hit single "Wind Beneath My Wings," which Midler originally recorded for the 1988 film. In Menzel's hands, the song works on a softer level, but still shines as a powerful rendition of the anthemic love song.

Both Jamie xx and Oliver Sim play a part in the video as they frolic about in an empty parking lot and have discussions on phones that are actually connected to the wall with wires. Remember those?

We have a lot of love and respect for the people of the USA, having played hundreds of shows across the country over the past years.

Anything Worse is a song born out of pure chaotic frustration with pretty much everything around me. I go through periods of either loving the things around me or really detesting them. When I came up with Anything Worse it was the latter of the two. I had this fun, kinda campy, pop chord progression that I was messing around with and I thought that lyrically it would be fun to put a scathing critique of popular culture to it. The song is like when you're talking to someone and you have to smile at them but inside your head all you're thinking about is how badly they annoy you.
I know that sometimes I'm a real curmudgeon. I'm ok with that. I can't go down the street without dodging people who are too busy watching movies on their cell phones to avoid walking straight into me. Nobody seems to know anything about politics. People think it's ok to buy food in plastic containers for breakfast, lunch and dinner, then just throw it all away when their done eating. Instagram. Velvet rope entrances. People don't know who Burroughs is and half my generation has to take a prescription to feel ok about their lives. These are all things that make me a curmudgeon. Then I go and break my own rules and realize that I'm a complete hypocrite and that annoys me too. I guess that's life.
Dave and I went into the studio to record this song with Brian Speaker (The Femdoms, Jeffrey Lewis) who did an amazing job. By the time Jeff Lipton (Arcade Fire, Dropkick Murphys, Heartless Bastards) finished mastering the track it was one of my favorite songs out of eight or so that we recorded. It's funny how songs will surprise you like that.
