Video From AC/DC's Buffalo Concert Goes Online

(hennemusic) AC/DC featuring Axl Rose on lead vocals rocked the First Niagara Centre in Buffalo, NY on September 11 and video from the show has surfaced online.

The Niagara Gazette reports AC/DC "performed a marathon set worthy of the band's legacy" while treating fans "to a remarkable vocal performance.

Lil Wayne Clarifies His Retirement Tweet

(Radio.com) Lil Wayne has reassured fans that he is not planning to retire after he sparked speculation by tweeting that he was "done" on September 3rd, over his frustration over the situation with Birdman and Cash Money Records.

Wayne appeared on Undisputed on Tuesday and put those rumors to rest. He's not retiring. He just let the heat of the moment get to him. "I'm a Libra," he explained.

He notes that as a cliche Lirba's are "known to not have real emotions. We're the only zodiac sign without a heart or soul, only sign that's just a symbol. So in a sense as a scale, we have to let something get all the way down there for it to tip over, for us to boil over. I was at the tipping point."

When asked directly by Shannon Sharpe if he would work with Birdman again, assuming the money issues could be resolved, Wayne clearly answers "no sir." Read more and watch the full interview here.

The performer (real name Cornell Iral Haynes, Jr.) is facing a $2.4 million lien which comes from unpaid taxes in 2013. If he doesn't come up with the money soon, the IRS could seize his assets and property, Billboard reports.

While fans are rallying around Nelly with the #HotInHerreStreamingParty to continually stream "Hot In Herre" all day and night, the harsh reality is an awful lot of streaming needs to be done to even come close to raising the cash he needs to pay off his IRS debt. But it won't be easy. Read more here.

Their tribute to the late singer was also broadcast on Saturday for the 5th biennial Stand Up To Cancer television fundraiser. On the song, each act traded verses before joining in together on the powerful chorus.

Katy Perry Helps Deliver Her Sister's Baby

(Radio.com) Katy Perry is not just a pop star, she's midwife as she tweeted that she once again helped deliver her sister's baby, before heading straight to the studio just as she did back in 2014.

Two years ago, Katy said the delivery happened in a living room--it's unclear whether this week's bundle of joy resulted from another home birth. Nevertheless, her sister Angela had an A-list pop star ready to welcome her new addition to the family.

Perry broke down the timetable for her 92.7 million followers: "Helped deliver my sister's baby at 2pm & am in the studio by 8pm. GET A GIRL THAT CAN DO BOTH!!!"" Read more here.

Britney Spears' 'Glory' Bonus Track 'Mood Ring' Goes Online

(Radio.com) Britney Spears' Glory sold 110,000 units in America in its first week and enraptured fans around the globe. Bona fide Britney fanatics may think they've heard every track from this chapter of her career, but there's more.

DJ Mustard helped Spears record a song called "Mood Ring" which didn't make the cut of Glory's U.S. version, but appears as part of the album's Japanese package. At last, we can listen to the material DJ Mustard bragged about last year, and it's pretty great.

The atmospheric track blends Spears' voice with a moody electro-pop arrangement. Intrepid Britney fans collected snippets of leaked audio and created this compilation of "Mood Ring" for all to enjoy: Check it out here.

Beck Releases 'Wow' Music Video

(Radio.com) Beck has released a video for the song "Wow" which is the first single off his forthcoming yet untitled 13th studio album that is set to hit stores on October 21st.

Beck said that his new album would sound nothing like his melodious and ethereal Morning Phase, and if his latest single "Wow" is any indication he's sticking by that assertion. He released a video for the song today (September 13), which feels closer to a series of paintings than any true visual treatment.

In the video, Beck, clad in all black, stands on a street corner dancing in slow motion. Besides that moment of grounding normality, though, the video cuts between a series of slow motion videos, all hyper colored, that don't seem to have anything in common other than their striking aesthetic quality. There's an aging cowboy, a group of young dancers wearing sparkling costumes, a horse breathing steam on a cool morning and a bunch of roses with an eye where the pistil should be. Watch the video here.

The Lumineers Continue Cleopatra's Story With 'Angela' Video

(Radio.com) The Lumineers have released their new music video for the song "Angela/Patience" and the clip continues the "Cleopatra" narrative of their recent videos.

The latest music video from their sophomore studio album Cleopatra marks the newest installment in a series that traces Cleopatra's life in reverse chronological order.

Directed once again by Isaac Ravishankara, the video finds Cleopatra in her 20s and pregnant. Part of her wants to run away from all of her responsibilities, while the other knows that she's old enough now to handle what life throws at her, even if she'd rather take a different path. As a result, the video splits into two narrative storylines, one where Cleopatra leaves her husband and runs away, and another where she stays.

Those familiar with the band's previous video for "Cleopatra" will recognize the pregnant woman in the brown nightie and rose colored cardigan from the cab ride Cleopatra offers her in that visual. As "young Cleopatra" in this latest video, she takes off in a car in the middle of the night. Timelines crash into one another at the end when young Cleopatra awakens in a hotel room, sees older Cleopatra outside starting her taxi, and leaves to catch a ride, thus picking up where the video for "Cleopatra" started. Watch the video here.

Green Day Release 'Bang Bang' Video

(hennemusic) Green Day have released a music video for the song "Bang Bang," the lead single from their forthcoming album, "Revolution Radio," which is set to hit stores on October 7th

Directed by Rancid frontman Tim Armstrong, the clip sees the band make headlines for robbing a bank, with footage of the group performing the tune in someone's living room.

"It's about the culture of mass shooting that happens in America mixed with narcissistic social media," Billie Joe Armstrong said recently. "There's this sort of rage happening, but it's also now being filmed and we all have ourselves under surveillance. To me, that is so twisted.

"To get into the brain of someone like that was freaky. It freaked me out. After I wrote it, all I wanted to do was get that out of my brain because it just freaked me out." Watch the video and read more here.

Streaming Seen As The Key To Music's Growth

(TeamRock) Revenue from music streaming grew in the UK by 49% last year while overall music sales and money raised through live shows fell. A report by Measuring Music for the industry's umbrella group UK Music shows that streaming revenue brought in 251million in 2015 via services such as Apple Music, Spotify and Deezer. Measuring Music say streaming is "the key to renewed and continued growth for British music and its artists globally."

The report also reflects on YouTube's rate of pay to artists, which has come under fire from various rock groups this year - most notably Sixx AM, Radiohead and Anthrax.

UK Music Chief Executive Jo Dipple says: "The YouTube model, despite its reach, is yet to deliver fair financial returns for rights owners and creators." Read more here.
