Ed Sheeran Reveals New Divide Album Release Details

(Radio.com) Ed Sheeran's new album (pronounced Divide) now has an official release date. The record will be the third from the English pop star and will come out on March 3.

Last Friday, Sheeran released two singles from the album, "Shape of You" and "Castle on the Hill." For both tracks he collaborated with Steve Mac, Benny Blanco and Johnny McDaid. And Sheeran revealed that "Shape of You" was originally written for Rihanna.

"['Shape of You'] is actually a really random one because I went in to write songs for other people with a guy called Steve Mac and Johnny McDaid, and we were writing this song and I was like 'this would really work for Rihanna," he told the BBC. "And then I started singing lyrics like 'putting Van The Man on the jukebox' and I was like 'well she's not really going to sing that, is she?' And then we sort of decided halfway through that we were just going to make it for me." Read more and watch an unplugged performance here.

The Chainsmokers Releasing New Track 'Paris'

(Radio.com) Following a banner 2016, the Chainsmokers have more new music on deck for 2017. The DJ duo are set to release their new single "Paris" on today and shared a 20-second snippet which contained some lyrics.

"We were stayin' in Paris/ to get away from your parents," sings Drew Taggart on vocals, "And I thought 'wow,' If I could take this in a shot right now, I don't think that we could work this out."

Altogether the track reminds us of the Chainsmokers' 2016 collaboration with Halsey, "Closer." They previewed "Paris" during a set in December and some listeners thought they heard Selena Gomez on the track--a rumor that will be confirmed or refuted very soon. Listen to the preview here.

Michael Jackson Family Offended By 'Urban Myths' Casting

(Radio.com) Joseph Fiennes' appearance in the trailer for Urban Myths was a bit of a head-scratcher on Wednesday. As Michael Jackson, the actor's makeup and prosthetics in the dark comedy looked shockingly unreal (perhaps for satiric effect), prompting members of Jackson's family to speak out. On Twitter, Michael's daughter Paris ripped the "offensive" project.

"I'm so incredibly offended by it, as I'm sure plenty of people are as well, and it honestly makes me want to vomit," she wrote. "It angers me to see how obviously intentional it was for them to be this insulting, not just towards my father, but my godmother [Elizabeth Taylor] as well. where is the respect? They worked through blood sweat and tears for ages to create such profound and remarkable legacies. Shameful portrayal."

Michael's nephew Taj Jackson wrote, "Unfortunately this is what my family has to deal with. No words could express the blatant disrespect." Read more here.

Liam Payne Reached Out To Zayn Malik

(Radio.com) Liam Payne took to social media to wish his former One Direction bandmate Zayn Malik a happy birthday. 'Happy birthday bro!" he wrote. "Hope all is well and you have a good day celebrating it."

Aaliyah's Greatest Hits Finally Hits Streaming Services

(Radio.com) Thanks to the popularity of Spotify, Apple Music and other streaming services, it seem as though nowadays nearly every song is available online. But that's not always the case.

Take the late singer Aaliyah's music, for example. Besides her debut album, Age Ain't Nothing' But a Number, the rest of her catalog has remained absent from the streaming universe.

That all changed on Wednesday night (January 11th) when her greatest hits album Ultimate appeared on iTunes and Apple Music. It's a big move that provides subscribers with access to hits like "One in a Million," but it's also a curious one. Read more here.

Cage The Elephant Release 'Cold Cold Cold' Video

(Radio.com) Cage The Elephant's Matthew Shultz took on a directorial role for the band's latest video, "Cold Cold Cold." The track comes from their Grammy nominated album "Tell Me I'm Pretty".

The visual harkens back to the 1960s. It focuses on a young man entering a psychiatric hospital and the strange, almost disturbing, scenes he witnesses and experiences. The visual flashes from black and white to shades of red, hinting at the emotions existent underneath the drug cocktail the hospital uses to quiet his mind.

"I think we're all very prone to subscribe to a safe, surface level pursuit of happiness, keeping our adversities out of sight out of mind, in a way," Shultz told Rolling Stone. "We try to fix ourselves to fit into the social norm, and it is so easy to forget that in one way or another, the broken hearted are the beautiful ones." Watch it here.

Sia Reveals Retro 'Move Your Body' Lyric Video

(Radio.com) Sia travels back to the fashionable 1987 for her "Move Your Body" lyric video. Instead of focusing so heavily on the lyrics, Sia practically presents a music video.

The action takes place at Move Your Body Studios, a clear homage to Glamour Shots, in 1987 when young Sia's parents force her to get their family portrait taken. But Sia can't sit still. She wants to move her body and move her body she does.

Sia breaks free of her parents, finds the missing half of her wig and begins sneaking into other portrait sessions, all of which show the glorious fashion, hairstyles and decor of the late 1980s. All's well that ends well, though, when Sia's penchant for movement and dance win over all the people she has interrupted. Check it out here.

AFI Streaming New Song 'Get Hurt'

(Radio.com) After debuting their trippy new video for "Snow Cats," AFI have revealed a stream of yet another new song from their forthcoming album AFI (The Blood Album).

Titled "Get Hurt," AFI's latest is an up-tempo, brooding number that finds vocalist Davey Havok trying to cultivate privacy in a world that thrives on over-sharing. "I can't let you see/ I can't let you see/ I can't let you see me sleeping," he sings on the chorus.

With a wild, reaching guitar solo, pounding drums and emphatic harmonies, "Get Hurt" balances a rollicking pace with a tormented feel. The retro-sounding track sounds strangely familiar to REM's music recorded in late 80s. It's not secret Havok and crew are fans of music spawned in the Reagan era.

AFI (The Blood Album) drops on January 20th, the same day as the band kicks off their North American tour in Los Angeles. Stream the new song here.

Roy Orbison Concert Film, Album Expanded for 30th Anniversary

(Radio.com) To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Black &White Night, Roy Orbison's concert film and album will be expanded and reissued next month. The original concert doc immortalized Orbison's 1980s comeback at L.A.' s Cocoanut Grove club.

The remastered and re-edited re-release, to be titled Black & White Night 30, will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray, giving fans new camera angles and better video quality for their personal Orbison archives.

The iconic 1987 concert included guests like Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Bonnie Raitt, k.d. Lang, Tom Waits and Jackson Browne. Orbison's son Alex discovered the additional footage while rummaging around his late father's estate.

"My dad always wanted a definitive live concert," Alex told Billboard. "He recorded a lot of live shows. None of them came out they way they wanted to. One of the distinguishing things about this for me and my brothers when we opened up the tapes is it had this jam band quality. It had this liveliness because of the guitar battles — Bruce Springsteen, who is a phenomenal guitar player, has this interaction with James Burton and there's a lot going on between all the players that was so great."Read more here.

Hunter Hayes Talks New Film 'Monster Trucks'

(Radio.com) On Friday (January 13) Monster Trucks opens in theaters and it brings with it a new Hunter Hayes song, "All For You." It's not his first time on a film soundtrack --he memorably covered "Almost Paradise" with Victoria Justice for the 2011 Footloose reboot--but he tells Radio.com that Monster Trucks was an exciting experience for him.

"I have my first ever original song that I wrote for a movie, that ended up in the movie, in the scene that I wanted it to be in. So it's perfect; I couldn't have a better experience. Probably never gonna have it again."

That's one of four new songs he has out; the other three are a teaser for his upcoming album. "This whole project has been about leaving some stuff behind and starting fresh," Hayes says, while discussing the three new songs that he recently released, "Yesterday's Song," "Youngblood" and "Amen."

"The first three songs we put out, to me, kind of summed up the different parts of the record. There was that spirit of moving on [in 'Yesterday's Song']; I had to figure some things out. There's the spirit of newfound happiness in 'Amen.' And then there's this side that accidentally showed up on the record, that's super bluesy and kind of embraces the musically weird stuff that I love that we have never really focused on for a record before that's shown up on this record. And the attitude of 'Young Blood' represents a large portion of the record that I've never had anything quite like on my record before. So, to me, the first three were a glimpse into the timeline of the record. And they all fall in different places, but they all kind of said to me, 'This record's gonna have a lot of different emotions.'" Read more here.

"It feels so hard to watch you hurt/ from that pain a lesson learned/ this is how you find your way," Lavigne sings and later adds, "I wish I can save you from the pain you've been through."

As the chorus approaches the Canadian pop star adds, "I've got so much love for you my friend/ ride or die until the end, but only you can save yourself/ You just have to listen." Read more and check out the song here.
