I’m pretty nervous about The Great Gatsby film that is coming out. It looks like it could be either really great or really bad, and the fact that it got pushed back months is not a good sign (Gangster Squad). One thing most of us can agree on is that it’s going to have a solid soundtrack, as Jay-Z was the executive producer, and got acts like Jack White, the XX, Andre 3000/Beyonce, and Lana Del Rey.
He also got Florence + The Machine to contribute a new song, and we are able to stream that early thanks to GQ, who have the exclusive stream. The song is called “Over The Love”, and in typical Florence fashion is bombastic and really dramatic, but she delivers..as usual.
Today, Governors Ball returns to New York City to take over Randall’s Island Park for another edition of the annual festival. It’s hard to believe that it’s June, let alone time for another edition of NYC’s beloved festival.
By now, you should (probably) have a good idea of who you’ll be seeing tomorrow, as well as the rest of the weekend. But if not, I’ve compiled a list of artists who I plan to catch throughout the weekend, if that will help sway your decision. Read the rest of this entry »
Governors Ball Music Festival announced the 2015 lineup last month, and today they’ve announced the single day lineups for the three days of the festival, set to go down from June 5-7 at Randall’s Islands Park.
We still have to see the set times each day, but at least now you can plan out if you want to go to just one day, or even plan out who you’re going to see each day.
Single days tickets are on presale now, with the regular sale happening Friday noon. 3-day tickets are still on sale.
Will you be heading to the Tennessee farm with your buddies this year? Bonnaroo has announced their 2015 lineup, and it’s a interesting one, as varied as many music festivals are these days. Read the rest of this entry »
As a New Yorker the Governors Ball Music Festival is a highlight of any summer, and it’s lineup is one that I always anticipate in the early days of the year. The festival has grown in considerable size each year, with this year arguably being it’s biggest one to date.
Mark Ronson, the producer of the Winehouse original premiered the song on his EastVillageRadio show. The first half features Andre 3000, with Beyonce taking over the second half. I’m sorry to say that this cover is not doing anything for me. I don’t think it’s doing any justice to her original either. I like both Andre/Beyonce, but I think this was a misfire.
Listen to a radio rip of the cover below. Beware of the ultra-annoying radio tags. Incase you missed it, EastVillageRadio is who played it…
In addition to Lana Del Rey and Florence + The Machine, we now get to hear The xx’s new song contribution to the soundtrack for The Great Gatsby. It has some slick production and features a sleepy mood setting vibe, with cinematic strings and all. They pulled out all the stops for this one. We can expect to hear this during an important scene during the film’s climax, one would think.
