Ke$ha Is Channeling ‘Sexiness’ Of ’70s Rock For New Album
March 12, 2017 8:25 pm|Comments (0)

Glitter-heavy pop star tells MTV News she’s going for ‘balls-out, irreverent rock and roll.’
By James Montgomery, with reporting by Matt Elias

<P><a href=”/music/artist/_kesha_/artist.jhtml”>Ke$ ha</a>’s already got the face paint down pat, and, during recent live sets, she’s even taken to <a href=”http://www.popeater.com/2011/03/17/kesha-drinks-blood-during-performance” target=”_blank”>guzzling blood</a> out of a human heart, so it should come as no surprise that, on her upcoming album, the pop star is taking things back to the most <i>theatrical</i> era of rock: the prop-heavy, arena-spanning heyday of the 1970s. </P><P> </P><P>Ke$ h revealed her plans over the weekend in Los Angeles, on the red carpet of KIIS FM’s annual <a href=”/news/articles/1663909/wango-tango-britney-spears-kesha.jhtml”>Wango Tango</a> concert, where she told MTV News that the follow-up to her breakout <i>Animal</i> album (and, we suppose, <a href=”/news/articles/1652714/kehas-cannibal-a-cheat-sheet.jhtml”><i>Cannibal</i></a> too) would be heavy on hard riffs and light on pretty much <i>everything</i> else. </P><P> </P><P></p><div class=”player-placeholder right” title=”Ke$ ha Says New Album Will Be ‘ Balls-Out, Irreverent Rock'” id=”vid:652875″ width=”240″ height=”211″></div><p> </P><P> </P><P>”The next album … I’ve been working on writing on the road, but as far as a sound, I just know it’s gonna be balls-out, irreverent rock and roll,” she said. “I’ve been pretty much in this ’70s rock and roll kick and I just want to capture some of the true essence of what rock and roll is, and that’s just irreverence and sexiness and fun and not giving a f—, so we’ll definitely put a bit of rock and roll in it.” </P><P> </P><P>So, does that mean that fans can expect the likes of Alice Cooper or Peter Frampton to show up on her new album? Perhaps. Because while Ke$ ha’s new album is still a ways off, she’s already begun calling in favors, hoping to line up a killer collabo for the new disc. </P><P> </P><P>”I’m trying, trust me,” she laughed. “I really would love to connect with one of my idols, I mean, that’s my dream. I’m working on it.” </P><P> </P><P><i>What do you think of Ke$ ha going rock for her next album? Tell us in the comments!</i></p>

Coldplay, Led Zeppelin Album Covers Featured On New British Stamps
February 3, 2017 8:20 am|Comments (0)

Album art from Pink Floyd, Blur and David Bowie also included.
By James Montgomery

<P>On Thursday (January 7), the U.K.’s Royal Mail unveiled a series of 10 new stamps, honoring the most iconic album covers of the past 40 years. </P><P> </P><P>The albums featured in the new series are the <a href=”/music/artist/rolling_stones/artist.jhtml”>Rolling Stones</a>’ <i>Let It Bleed,</i> <a href=”/music/artist/led_zeppelin/artist.jhtml”>Led Zeppelin</a>’s <i>IV,</i> <a href=”/music/artist/bowie_david/artist.jhtml”>David Bowie</a>’s <i>The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars,</i> <a href=”/music/artist/mike_oldfield/artist.jhtml”>Mike Oldfield</a>’s <i>Tubular Bells,</i> <a href=”/music/artist/clash/artist.jhtml”>The Clash</a>’s <i>London Calling,</i> <a href=”/music/artist/new_order/artist.jhtml”>New Order</a>’s <i>Power, Corruption and Lies,</i> <a href=”/music/artist/primal_scream/artist.jhtml”>Primal Scream</a>’s <i>Screamadelica,</i> <a href=”/music/artist/pink_floyd/artist.jhtml”>Pink Floyd</a>’s <i>The Division Bell,</i> <a href=”/music/artist/blur/artist.jhtml”>Blur</a>’s <i>Parklife</i> and &#8212; the most recent album on to make the cut &#8212; <a href=”/music/artist/coldplay/artist.jhtml”>Coldplay</a>’s <i>A Rush of Blood to the Head.</i> </P><P> </P><P>Meant to honor “the most potent graphic images of modern times, many of which have provided a visual soundtrack to people’s lives,” the series is the end result of a lengthy research process by the Royal Mail, who looked through thousands of album covers by British artists before deciding on the final list. And, during a Wednesday night BBC Radio broadcast, it was revealed that the queen herself actually approved each design. </P><P> </P><P>Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page &#8212; who helped design the cover for <i>IV</i> &#8212; was on hand to celebrate the release of the stamps and recalled the mysterious nature of the album’s iconic imagery. </P><P> </P><P>”Almost 40 years after the album came out, nobody knows the old man who featured on the cover, nor the artist who painted him,” he said. “That sort of sums up what we wanted to achieve with the album cover, which has remained both anonymous and enigmatic at the same time.” </P><P> </P><P>Of course, any great honor is befitting of an equally great contest, so, on the same day the stamps were made available to the general public, Coldplay decided to give one of their <i>Rush of Blood</i> stamps away. In a message on their official site, the band held a contest to send one lucky fan “a letter using a Coldplay stamp, postmarked with today’s issue date.” </P><P> </P><P>”We visited our local post office earlier today and bought some of the Coldplay stamps,” the message read. “Very nice they are too.”</p>

Robert Plant And Alison Krauss Win Grammy Album Of The Year
October 30, 2016 10:35 pm|Comments (0)

Raising Sand, from Led Zeppelin vet and bluegrass superstar, wins five Grammys on Sunday night.
By James Montgomery with MTV News staff

<P>”I’m bewildered,” <a href=”/music/artist/plant_robert/artist.jhtml”>Robert Plant</a> said onstage as he accepted the <MTVNLINK type=”news” id=”1604580″>Grammy Album of the Year award</MTVNLINK> with <a href=”/music/artist/krauss_alison/artist.jhtml”>Alison Krauss</a> on Sunday night. “In the old days we would have called this selling out, but it’s a good way to spend a Sunday.” </P><P> </P><P>He was probably one of the few who were surprised, because <i>Raising Sand,</i> which won five trophies at Sunday night’s show, is in many ways the perfect <a href=”http://www.mtv.com/news/grammys/”>Grammy</a> album. It features two respected veterans, a critically lauded producer, some sandpaper-and-velvet vocals and a baker’s dozen of time-tested standards.</p><div style=”margin: 0px 10px 10px 0px; float: left;”><embed src=”http://media.mtvnservices.com/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:338316″ width=”256″ height=”223″ type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” flashVars=”configParams=instance%3Dnews%26vid%3D338316″ allowFullScreen=”true” allowScriptAccess=”always” base=”.”></embed></div><p> </P><P> </P><P>You’re probably familiar with Robert Plant from his <a href=”/music/artist/led_zeppelin/artist.jhtml”>Led Zeppelin</a> days, and you might be aware of producer T-Bone Burnett’s work on the “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” soundtrack (it won the Grammy for Album of the Year in 2002). And if you don’t know who Alison Krauss is, she possesses a haunting set of pipes and is one of the meanest fiddle players in the world. Oh, and she’s won 21 Grammys, more than any other female artist and the seventh-most in history. </P><P> </P><P>Really, she’s the key to <i>Sand</i>’s success, and not just because of her voice (or her fiddle playing). She and Plant first met in 2004, at a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tribute to legendary bluesman Leadbelly, and the former Zeppelin man was amazed by her knowledge of American Roots music &#8212; so much so that they began kicking around the idea of recording an album together. Three years later, <i>Sand</i> was released. </P><P> </P><P>And while Plant possesses the more famous voice, the album’s finest moments radiate from Krauss. Whether she’s getting bluesy on Little Milton’s “Let Your Loss Be Your Lesson” or entwining with Plant’s husky voice on songs like “Please Read the Letter” and Roly Salley’s winsome “Killing the Blues,” she more than carries her end of the bargain. </P><P> </P><P>And perhaps that’s also due to producer Burnett, who handpicked the 13 songs the duo cover on <i>Sand.</i> His arrangements are sparse &#8212; giving the two voices ample room to breathe &#8212; yet dense, warm and crackling at the same time. It’s a testament to his work that he’s often given just as much billing as Plant and Krauss on the project … and it’s certainly justified. </P><P> </P><P>To date, <i>Sand</i> has sold more than 1 million copies, heaped tons of acclaim and actually earned a Grammy last year &#8212; “Gone Gone Gone (Done Moved On)” took home the award for Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals. </P><P> </P><P>One expert was surprised not by the album’s success, but by the fact that it’s actually quite a good album. </P><P> </P><P>”At first, the album seemed like a vanity project. … Two names, clearly a one-off record, didn’t have to be any good, you know?” <i>New York Times</i> music critic Jon Caramanica said. “Led Zeppelin fans would buy it because of Robert Plant, Alison Krauss would get a check. But it actually turned out to be a really thoughtful, really <i>good</i> record. So when you combine all that with the fact that the Grammys love to lionize one of their own, I could really see it taking home some awards.” </P><P></p>
