Lady Gaga Previews New Music In Paris
Lady Gaga announced in a tweet that she will be previewing material from her upcoming album Born This Way — albeit in a remixed form — at a Fashion Week event in Paris tomorrow.

'Glee,' Trent Reznor, Diane Warren Win at Golden Globes
There were no big surprises in the music categories at the Golden Globes on Sunday. As expected, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross won Best Original Score for the Social Network and Glee won Best Series, Musical Or Comedy for a second year. Slighly more surprising was Diane Warren's win for Best Original Song with the Cher ballad "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me" from the widely panned film Burlesque. [Idolator]

Blur Drummer Teases Another Reunion
Blur drummer Dave Rowntree has told Gigwise and the NME that Blur may reunite again this year, though no formal plans have been set. The group recorded a one-off single and performed a brief tour in 2009, but have been mostly defunct since they finished touring for their 2003 album Think Tank. [Guardian UK]

Kate Bush to Return with New Music This Year

Song Stories

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
