Deadmau5 and his enormous mouse head return with The Veldt, the first in an upcoming series of EPs from the Canadian DJ/producer. Lead single "The Veldt," inspired by the recently deceased sci-fi author Ray Bradbury, is an epic eight-minute journey that partners Deadmau5's ecstatic production with Chris James' smooth, throaty vocals. On "Failbait," Deadmau5 teams with blunt-friendly rap veterans Cypress Hill for a banging track that steps away from EDM and firmly thumps into hip-hop territory. 

The Veldt EP will be released on June 25th. You can preorder on iTunes and get your first listen above.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
