Placebo have announced today that fans can download the title track from their forthcoming album ‘Battle For The Sun’ for FREE exclusively at www.placeboworld.co.uk.
The title track is lifted from ‘Battle For The Sun’, their first new album since the release of ‘Meds’ in 2006 and was given its worldwide premiere on Zane Lowe’s show on Radio 1 last night (March 17).
Fan reaction to the play was so overwhelming that the track was played in its entirety for a second time to close last night’s show.
The team explained: “We just found out that Hulu blocked the Boxee browser from accessing the Hulu site. However, since then the Boxee people have managed to get these Hulu feeds working. “Over the weekend we will make an update to the user interface that will show a status message indicating whether Hulu is currently working or not.”
London-based all-girl band the Mentalists caught everyone’s attention this week when they published a video of their cover of MGMT’s hit trackl ‘Kids’, all played entirely on a bunch of iPhones and iPod touch(es).
We were compelled to get in touch and spoke with Mentalist Kim E. Leon today, only to find out they’re a proper band, with music and websites and gigs and everything, who describe themselves rather adroitly a “like Cyndi Lauper – on acid…”. Here’s what we found out.
The label describes the song “The Strangers”, which is the first track on the album, as “starting off as a deceptively dulcet elegy for a lost love, which suddenly capsizes under a flood of distortion.”
St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) will be previewing songs from ‘Actor’ at South by Southwest this month.
