Buzzcocks – “Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve)”

Buzzcocks have shared their first new single since the 2018 passing of co-founder Pete Shelley. The new tune is called “Gotta Get Better,” and it first came as a solo single from the band’s Steve Diggle. Now, it’s been reworked into a catchy pop punk track, which you can check out here.
 

Sonic Youth – “Kool Thing”

Kate Bush – “Running Up That Hill”

Bat for Lashes recently delivered a cover of Kate Bush at a show in London. Natasha Khan delivered a piano-based cover of “This Woman’s Work,” which truly let her vocal prowess shine, with unbelievably dreamy falsettos. Watch the cover here, and catch Bat for Lashes at the Phoenix on February 22 and 23.
 

John Lennon – “Imagine”

Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas performed a powerful cover of The Beatles’ hit track “Yesterday” at the Academy Awards last weekend. The moving rendition saw the pair delivering a sparse, piano-driven rendition of the track as the names of Academy members who passed away in the last year flashed on the screen behind her. Watch it here!

After much anticipation, The Cure’s Robert Smith has given word as to when the album will be coming out. Smith says that the new album will “definitely” be out in 2020.
