Ed Sheeran Explains D.C. Jam Session with Dave Chappelle

(Radio.com) How did Ed Sheeran end up in jam session with Dave Chappelle? That was the question on everyone's mind after pictures popped up on social media of the "Shape of You" singer and the comedian performing at Eighteenth Street Lounge in Washington D.C. late Tuesday night (Sept. 19).

In a backstage interview before his second show at the Capital One Arena Wednesday, Sheeran gave the backstory to 94.7 Fresh FM. Two years ago, Sheeran said, he was leaving Wembley Stadium after his show and passed a warehouse that was "poppin.'"

"There's this amazing band playing and Dave Chappelle on stage with a microphone," he continued. The harmonica player recognized Sheeran and pulled him on stage to jam "for like an hour."

The next night, Sheeran had a party that was "just me and like 12 of my schoolmates and Dave Chappelle. It was really, really weird." "Ever since then when he has jams and he's in town, I go and jam," he said. Check out photos from the D.C. Jam session here.

Pop Classic Used In The Trailer for Wes Anderson's 'Isle of Dogs'?

(Radio.com) Director Wes Anderson is set to release his latest film, Isle of Dogs, about a group of dogs living on an island in Japan. The star-studded cast includes Yoko Ono, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johannson, Tilda Swinton, Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Liev Schreiber, and Greta Gerwig.

The first trailer for Isle of Dogs was released this week, and it arrived with an appropriately surreal soundtrack song to match the movie's dreamlike mood.

Unless you're a scholar on pop music from the 1960s, it's likely the very first time you've heard the song: "I Won't Hurt You," by West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band. The group was a short-lived (1965-1970) psychedelic rock outfit out of Los Angeles known for elaborate and mind-bending light shows.

"I Won't Hurt You" was found on the group's 1966 debut album, Volume One, which also contained a slew of cover versions of Bob Dylan, the Kinks and more. Isle of Dogs is set to debut in theaters on March 23, 2018. Check out the trailer here.

Writers worked popular song lyrics into a conversation between Fallon and Lovato, and when the music started, each just lip-synced along.

The subject matter was fairly mundane, but the results were hilarious. They discussed weekend plans like apple picking and their recent dreams, interwoven with songs like Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" and Harry Styles' "Sign of the Times." Demi's own "Sorry Not Sorry" even made an appearance. Watch the funny clip here.

Nick Jonas Fails At Being James Corden's Intern

(Radio.com) James Corden's guests will submit to all sorts of unusual punishment for the sake of comedy. They sing at the top of their lungs in the passenger seat of a moving car.

They'll even stand behind a fiberglass partition while Corden launches food at them. Last night, Nick Jonas gamely joined Corden for a sketch in which he plays not just a Late Late Show intern--but a very, very bad one.

The sketch begins when Corden complains about his empty mug. "This mug's completely empty," he says. "Why is my--sorry, I was a bit parched. We'll start again. Can I get some water in here? It's a simple thing, isn't it? The interns here, they basically have one job and they can't even get that right."

Jonas emerges with a bottle of water and fills Corden's cup. Then James asks for a pastry and Jonas digs one out of his pocket--promising it's fine to eat, except for a few hairs. Finally, Nick makes it up to Corden by offering him a shoulder massage. Watch the hilarious sketch unfold here.

Foo Fighters Talks 'Concrete and Gold'

(Radio.com) Foo Fighters continue to prove that rock and roll is alive and well with the recent release of the band's ninth studio album, Concrete and Gold on Roswell Records/RCA Records.

Produced by Greg Kurstin and featuring appearances from Paul McCartney, Justin Timberlake, Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men, Alison Mosshart of the Kills and Dave Koz, Concrete and Gold sets the vanguard for rock is 2017 and beyond.

"I think it's our most psychedelic record, and our weirdest," drummer Taylor Hawins told Rolling Stone. It's an apt statement, as the band's frontman and rock evangelist Dave Grohl takes the challenge of making a new Foo Fighters record truly exciting and innovative very seriously.

"I've always been afraid of becoming a heritage act," Grohl stressed. "I feel like we have to prove ourselves over and over to be a band worth following." He continues to Rolling Stone , "When it comes to the music, 'our formula is pretty simple.' When you put us in a room, it sounds like the band. So the challenge is to figure out how that evolves."

When asked about the album's overarching theme, Grohl has pointed to the title track, the last song on the set. "There's sort of a theme within the eleven songs that goes from beginning to end, so this is kind of the resolve of the entire record," he explained. "The chorus [of the song 'Concrete And Gold'] says, 'I have an engine made of gold, something so beautiful. The world will never know. Our roots are stronger than you know. Up through the concrete we will grow.' It's kind of beautiful." Read more here.

Brandon Flowers Says Wife's PTSD Inspired New Killers Album

(Radio.com) The Killers' sixth studio album Wonderful Wonderful was just released and Brandon Flowers has revealed that one of his biggest inspirations writing the album was his wife Tana's struggle with mental health issues.

Flowers got candid about her journey and how navigating the experience together made him want to share the subject matter with listeners. "My wife has PTSD [Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder]," he told NME. "She has a version called Complex PTSD. It's when a person has had multiple traumatic experiences. Her whole life, she's been covering it, pretending it isn't there. For whatever reason, in her 30s, it's decided to really manifest itself and that's what I'm going through with my family."

"Usually I feel protective of her, but I decided to take it head on," he continued. "So 'Rut' is about her submitting to it. She got severely depressed and it wasn't until she sought counseling and got a name for what was going on that it helped."

Flowers expressed his appreciation for the hard work Tana has done to take care of her mental health. Read more here.

Kelly Clarkson Explains Why She Doesn't Wear Makeup

(Radio.com) Singer Kelly Clarkson is one of those pop superstars who is unabashed when taking makeup-free selfies; It's just one of the little things that make Kelly's fans love her so much.

Kelly admits in a new interview with Fresh 102.7's Karen & Jeffrey that living in Los Angeles pre-American Idol allowed her to wrap her head around the music business early on, which prepared her for the things she knew she would and would not do for fame -- and votes.

"I think honestly at the end of the day I've always been the same kid in the sense of 'this is what you get,'" Kelly said "Even the producers of [American Idol], it drove them nuts that I never wore makeup or didn't like getting dolled up."

"From the get-go, I really am happy that I really was myself right off the bat, so I didn't have to hold up some image that was unattainable for me -- because I'm very low-key," she continued. "I'm probably the opposite of what you'd think of as a pop star." Read more here.
