The Australian dance-rockers Gold Fields released a self-titled EP earlier this year; now they are gearing up their debut LP, Black Sun, for release in January on Astralwerks. You can check out that record's first single, "Dark Again," a shuffling cut with a thick bassline and massive chorus.

Frontman Mark Fuller says the track started out in 2010 as a demo that the band toyed with constantly throughout the recording process. "The lyrics were written about pulling yourself out of a rut," Fuller tells Rolling Stone. "More specifically, pulling a relationship out of a rut. It's just about snapping out of a negative mindframe and realizing that you've got something pretty special."

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
