It’s the first cut off her upcoming album, slated for a 2014 release. “I love being in the studio. Music has always been a huge passion of mine,” Hilton said. “So to be having my new single out with Lil Wayne, it’s just such an honor, and I’m so excited for the world to hear it.” Hilton revealed that she’s more excited than nervous for fans to hear her long-in-the-works material. “I’ve been recording this album for about a year and a half now,” Hilton revealed. “After being in Ibiza I was so inspired I met so many amazing DJs and producers, so people kept sending me different songs and making this album and I’m so proud of it.” It wasn’t until she became reacquainted with Cash Money CEO Birdman on the set of the ” Tapout ” video [the two originally met at the 2004 MTV Video Music Awards in Miami] that Hilton’s vision really started to take form. “We ended up meeting up after the video and I played him some of my songs and he loved them and signed a deal together,” Hilton said. “It’s so exciting. I love working with him. He’s so smart and so creative and inspiring and I just look up to him so much as a businessman and what he’s created, and I think it’s perfect to be part of the Cash Money family .” And it seems that the Cash Money family, which includes Wayne, Drake and Nicki Minaj, are equally as excited to have Hilton on board. “They’ve been so supportive and amazing.

“Heaven knows when you think Justin, you think of me,” Costello joked with the Town Hall crowd. Then Costello introduced his understudy, famed music producer T-Bone Burnett. Replete with his trademark glasses, Burnett performed rousing backup vocals on “Please, Mr. Kennedy.” Timberlake’s character sings that song in the film about the New York folk music scene in the 1960s. Burnett acted as the project’s executive music producer, just as he did for the music from the Grammy-winning “O Brother, Where Art Thou.” Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of “Inside Llewyn Davis” included music inspired by the film from a host of folk artists, old and new. Among them were the Avett Brothers, Punch Brothers, Marcus Mumford, Patti Smith, Joan Baez and others. Stars from the film also performed, including Carrie Mulligan, Oscar Isaac (he plays the title role), and Stark Sands. Before the show, director Joel Coen was milling around the lobby and during intermission his wife Frances McDormand was by his side. When asked how he felt the concert was going, he simply replied: “Good.” Scott Rudin, the film’s producer, was a bit more outgoing. Holding court before the show in the lobby, he appeared like a proud father at a wedding reception. During intermission, Rudin had a huge smile while standing at center aisle. He spoke briefly to the Associated Press about the show.

Then you better start thinking in shapes and download the newly released Shapes Music app for iPad. When experienced musicians interact with music, they seldom think in terms of notes, scales or keys, explains the eponymous development studio behind Shapes Music. Instead, theyve translated years of experience into natural shapes and patterns on their instruments. Shapes Music applies this principle in enabling you to think like a pro as it guides you in playing music. The app does this by using a unique semitransparent keyboard design thats superimposed on music videos, allowing you to tap while you watch. If you cant see the video embedded above, please click here . The app lets you search through thousands of songs by title or by artist and lets you build your own custom playlist. Shapes Musics offered songs run the gamut of musical genre and are culled straight from YouTube. So, make sure that YouTube music content is not blocked in your country in order to get the most out of Shapes Music. Shapes Music is available now in the App Store for $4.99. The app is compatible with iPad running iOS 5.0 or later. As noted by Music Ally , there are plans to add other instuments and sounds to Shapes Music.

Hello Twitter #Music . After somewhat of a false start with a Web app that clumsily worked with Spotify and Rdio through the browser (which still exists, in fact), Twitter #Music launched a fully-fledged Spotify app and soon after, added integration with Rdio too , making the experience far more streamlined and user friendly. In no uncertain terms, within about two weeks, Twitter #Musics Spotify App has now become my de facto route to discovering new music. Rdio also includes all of Twitters chart playlists but not quite as elegantlyintegrated, in my opinion. Whilst maintaining a clean, simple and highly visual user experience, Twitter has selected a number of well thought out categories to help you discover new music: Superstars- Songs fromartists that have big money backing them and songs youre probably sick of hearing on the radio already Popular- Songs that are trending on Twitter, irrespective of artist status Emerging- Songs that are gradually gaining in popularity, generally from lesser-known artists Unearthed- Songs that are getting some interest from specks of the Twittersphere when listened to Hunted Songs that are getting decent coverage on music blogs (Pitchfork, FactMag and more) If youre interested in listening to just one genre of music, thats also possible too. However what youll find (and this is where Twitter #Music has room for improvement) is only the most popular tracks within each genre. This can often not change all that much for days or even weeks. Id love to see similar superstars, popular etc. charts for each genre. Where Twitter also has room for improvement is providing more room for filtering music from specific trending lists. Theres absolutely no way Ill ever intentionally want to listen to a Chris Brown track for example, same goes for country music and opera. It would also be smart to include an option that excludes songs that a user has listened to more than 5 times, lets say. If Twitter is aiming to become the way to discover the best new music, these little features would help. Ensuring Twitter #Music doesnt become a bloated piece of junk is also of paramountimportance. One feature I would also love to see is insight intowhat specific countries are listening to. Ive always loved Brazils taste in music for example, show me whats trending there.

Looking for things to do? Select one or more criteria to search Kid-friendly Get ideas Hovering over six feet tall, Kelley, 28, sits down, leans back and props his legs up on a small counter across the aisle as his duo partner, Tyler Hubbard, appears. Hubbard, 26, grabs a granola bar out of a makeshift kitchen cabinet and takes a seat. Just a couple of everyday guys, hanging out before taking the stage in Richmond in front of 6,000 screaming fans. Fifteen months ago, these dudes didnt have a record deal. Now theyre shattering music records while taking Nashville by storm . On Sunday, the 20,000-plus expected to gather at Merriweather Post Pavilion for the annual Sunday in the Country festival will see Kelley and Hubbard right before they graduate to the next level of stardom: their first national headlining tour, which kicks off Thursday. Fans will pack in to hear feel-good party songs from the duos platinum-selling debut album, Heres to the Good Times , and especially the inescapable crossover smash Cruise, which recently spent 22 weeks at No. 1, making Billboard country chart history. As Florida Georgia Line keeps ascending, the duo is also being credited or blamed, depending on whom you ask for helping to change the sound of modern country music. The bands rise may seem rapid, but as everyone around them emphasizes, its the result of years of tough, behind-the-scenes work. Plus, its triumphant proof that doing things a little differently even if you start outside of the Nashville star-making machine, which has a methodical process of transforming singers into superstars can lead to success. It was a fast rise if youre looking at it only from the perspective of when the mass audience started paying attention, says Seth England, the duos manager. I dont mean that disrespectfully.
