The Shins Celebrate Halloween With 'Dead Alive' Video

(Radio.com) The Shins release a new video this week for a track called "Dead Alive". Calling it, a "Halloween gift" it's a fun nod to the fright-filled holiday and a look at what happens "when daydreams become nightmares."

"Dead Alive" is a rabbit hole of a video with each scene coming back at some point from a different perspective. Creepy things happen when James Mercer falls asleep on the couch while watching Halloween-themed programming. As he dreams, he finds that his world has become a miniaturized toy version and it continually clashes with a more giant world where people tower over everything. Things get even more twisted when he becomes a skeleton.

In the video, the band continues teasing "I Gleek On Your Grave." The phrasing shows up on a poster in Mercer's home as well as on a drive-in movie screen. That may be the name of their next single or their upcoming album, but it's something they've been sharing with fans more and more lately. Watch the video here.

Miley Cyrus Addresses Engagement Ring from Liam Hemsworth

(Radio.com) Pop star Miley Cyrus appeared on Ellen Degeneres' show to clear up some speculation about the engagement ring she received from Liam Hemsworth. She said she feels strange wearing it some of the time because the expensive rock doesn't go with her less fancy collection of candy, plastic and kitsch.

"It's very weird because this is, like, real jewelry and most of my jewelry is made out of like gummy bears and cotton candy and they don't look that good together because they kind of mix up," she said.

"So sometimes I replace it with an actual unicorn or a Looney Tune. And he's like, 'What's going on?' And I'm like, 'Well, this isn't my aesthetic, but I'll wear it 'cause you love me.'" Read more here.

OneRepublic Talks Peter Gabriel Collaboration

(Radio.com) OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder spoke to Radio.com backstage as this year's We Can Survive concert and they discussed their collaboration with music legend Peter Gabriel.

"It's what you think it would be like," Tedder says, when asked what working with Gabriel is like. They collaborated with the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer on the song "A.I.," from their new album Oh My My.

"Incredible. The first time I met him, it was incredible. We just hung out and talked music for two or three hours and had dinner. He was super gracious and nice."

Tedder and OneRepublic were still geeking out over getting Gabriel on the album: "People ask, 'How did you get Peter Gabriel? He doesn't do features!' I asked! No one asks him! Or they try to, he's not an easy guy to reach. So, there's that: just getting a hold of him was the hard part. After that, it was like, 'Let's have dinner and hang out and see if we vibe; I worship your body of work, and hopefully you like this song and let's do something.' And he went along with it."

Nick Jonas Battle Raps Kevin Hart In New Online Clip

(Radio.com) Nick Jonas put his rap skills to the test by battling comedian Kevin Hart. Hart's Chocolate Droppa character has been battle rapping all sorts of characters.

He explained in the beginning of the video how people were criticizing him for only going toe-to-toe with rappers, so he went "mainstream" and tapped Jonas to participate.

Dubbed "Vanilla Wafer," Jonas starts off with a pretty straightforward and simple rhyme that doesn't have much flare to it. "I'm the Drake of this equation/ Meek Mill here, what you doing?/ Why you waiting?" which draws a laugh from Hart and his crew.

It's all in the name of comedy, though, and Hart brings the best moment when he stands with his back to Jonas, flexes and proclaims, "That's muscles in my back, motherf——!" Watch it here.

Singled Out: Brett Wiscons' Until I Think About You

Brett Wiscons releases his new album "The Heineken Sessions - Deluxe" this week (Oct 28th) and to celebrate we asked him to tell us about the song "Until I Think About You". Here is the story:

It was coming up on the anniversary of my dad's passing and this song just kind of spilled out of me. I wasn't really thinking about writing a song about him or memories we shared, it just kind of happened that way.

The title is so true to how I felt at the time I penned the song. It had been almost four years (now five) since he passed, so I'd gone through the five stages of grief, but I still needed closure. It's weird - I really didn't miss him until I would think about him. Sometimes that would be one hundred times a day, though. If you've ever lost a parent or someone close to you, I'm sure you can relate. I don't think I'll ever have total closure, but writing this song helped me get closer to closure.

In the studio, we really captured the mood. Just me on guitar and vocals, my friend Anne Balbo on distant, angelic harmonies, Hank Futch played his upright bass with a bow, and my producer Mark Bryan added the Wurlitzer. I love how it all came out. That opening line about "running up and down the street, catching the leaves as they fall..." (which really happened in the autumn) sets the song down a bittersweet memory lane for me, but it's a fitting tribute to my dad, Barry. I think he would've dug the song, too.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
