Styles said of the track, 'We're in a difficult time, and I think we've been in many difficult times before. But we happen to be in a time where things happening around the world are absolutely impossible to ignore."
"I think it would've been strange to not acknowledge what was going on at all," he continued. "For example, 'Sign of the Times,' for me, it's looking at several different things. That's me commenting on different things."
Styles also elaborated on the duality that exists within the song and his life. 'It's a time when it's very easy to feel incredibly sad about a lot of things," he said. "It's also nice sometimes to remember that while there's a lot of bad stuff, there's also a lot of amazing people doing amazing things in the world." Read morehere.
The concert will now be taking place on August 4th. His team sent over the following announcement, "We regret to inform you that Barry Manilow's concert in Los Angeles tonight has been rescheduled.

The song features big builds and synth pop sounds, which are reminiscent of frontman Jack Antonoff's past work with Fun. This single follows the previously released "Don't Take The Money" and "Hate That You Know Me."
Antonoff shared his inspiration for the track in a lengthy post on social media. In part, he writes "maybe it's partially the age I'm--at-right on this cliff of actual adulthood--but I started to see people dragging all their pain around. It's like we all have a suitcase. No amount of money or luck can get you to move through life without this big suitcase you have to lug around. We don't want to carry too much--then it would be impossible to keep moving, we don't want to empty too much out--then we wouldn't be ourself." Check out the post and listen to the singlehere.
"I just wanna know if there's gon' be some interference," Bieber spits "cause I'm lookin' all around if that ass makin' an appearance." Later in his verse, the singer acknowledges the ever present paparazzi.

"I'm so excited that everyone loves 'Malibu' so much because it is such a personal record that I hoped like you said, everyone could find their meaning in this song and not just think this is a song about my life. It's about everyone's paradise, everyone's bliss," she told Carson Daly on 97.1 AMP Radio.
"Malibu" reads like a love letter to her fiance, Liam Hemsworth, but Cyrus pointed out that there's a deeper meaning behind the lyrics. "It's definitely about love. If that's how it is, that's what it is, but it's saying 'you brought me here and I'm happy that you did.' Next, 'cuz now I'm as free as birds catchin' the wind.' Because now, I'm not locked in the Hollywood grid where I can't escape everyone. We had a drone in my freakin' backyard one time because people didn't want to give me any privacy and I can't live like that…and now, I've found this freedom of being able to say - I think people respect my privacy more because I've created boundaries."

The Material Girl announced that the final cut of the concert will be released on DVD, Blu-ray and includes a live album with 22 songs.The film was recorded at tour stops around the world, culminating with a March 2016 performance in Sydney.

"It's a very sexy song, people have already pointed it out," Young told The Tennessean. Young, Josh Hoge and Chris DeStefano wrote the song, creating what might be his sexiest track since the country singer put out "Gettin' You Home" in 2009. The track starts slow and builds into a contemporary, full-blown country chorus.
"You don't want to make the same song over and over or the same sounds over and over on every record," Young explained. "I think it's still very much me. I don't think anyone is going to hear it and think it doesn't sound like me as an artist. It's very, very forward production-wise and definitely once the chorus hits, it's a tempo. It's a nice balance, and I think you have to have all of that." Listen to "Losing Sleep"here.
The party used a track in a 2014 political ad titled "Eminem-esque," which they purchased from a stock music company. Eminem and his attorneys argued that "Eminem-esque" was a bit too Eminem-esque to be legal.
An attorney for the party said the sound-alike industry of stock mp3 files is well-established, with the express goal of avoiding copyright infringement. 'It doesn't make it legitimate because somebody hasn't yet sued," the judge said, according to Billboard. 'It's a question of whether it is so alike that a sound-alike is crossing the line and becomes copyright infringement." It may take several months for the case to be decided. Read morehere.

"For me, 'Long Way' stands out as such a powerful look at love and that search for something deeper," said Eldredge of the new track. "It's about that big moment when you finally meet the person you've been waiting to meet, and you want to know everything about them.
"You don't just want a quick breeze through their hometown and life, you want to take the long way. It's a beautiful sentiment about love." Listen to the new songhere.
