Welcome to New Tunes Tues, where we tell you what newly released songs/albums/music videos etc require your attention immediately. Read on to take a listen to this week's epic collaborations (one of which features Jay Z), a must-hear song from the Divergent movie soundtrack and more.
Daft Punk ft. Jay-Z, "Computerized." Ok, we must first acknowledge the fact that this first song is only rumored to be real, according to pop music site Idolator.com. It could be a counterfeit Daft Punk track because the internet sucks sometimes. But it also features a verse from Jay Z that we've never heard before, so we're going to assume that this song is legit. Because it's too good not to be true, you know?
Christina Perri "Burning Gold." Already obsessed with Christina's newest single, "Human?" Here's the second track she just dropped from her album, Head or Heart, that comes out on April 1st. Guys, this girl's songs are catchy.
Fall Out Boy ft. Courtney Love, "Rat a Tat." Hole's frontwoman still got it! Courtney Love teams up with Pete Wentz and co. for their latest single and music video, and proves that girls can still totally have a place in rock'n'roll. Watch and learn, everyone else:
Kendrick Lamar ft. Tame Impala, "Backwards." You've already heard the Ellie Goulding song off the Divergent soundtrack, out today, but it wouldn't be fair if we didn't tell you about other songs on the disc, too. The soundtrack also features Kylie Jenner's BFF Pia Mia, Skrillex and Zedd, but this Kendrick track is our fave:
Paolo Nutini, "Scream (Funk My Life Up)." If all four of the Beatles still made music together today, this is possibly what it would sound like. Adele is a fan of this Scottish singer/songerwriter, and with good reason. Check out his new black and white music video which debuted just yesterday on Billboard, and stay tuned for his EP coming to the US this April:
