News Ticker: Slash, David Bowie, Miley Cyrus

April 5, 2010 8:37 AM ET

In a new interview with the New York Post, Slash calls Chinese Democracy "the perfect Axl record." He adds that the LP was "exactly what I would have expected from the final years of us working together, and seeing where he was headed musically. It's very heavy; sort of a dark, depressing record. He's fucking phenomenal."

The track list for Manimal Records' David Bowie tribute album has been updated, according to Consequence of Sound, who spotted a press release on Duran Duran's blog. The two-disc set includes MGMT covering "TVC 15" and Charlift performing "Always Crashing in the Same Car."

Miley Cyrus tells MTV her next album has "more of a techno vibe." She adds that her duet with Bret Michaels on "Nothin' to Lose" (slated to appear on the Poison singer's next solo album) came about because she's a big fan. "He was the first concert that I ever went to, and it's great when you can find people you can jive with and get along with."

“Fantasy”

Mariah Carey | 1995

Serendipity stuck when Mariah Carey rediscovered the glitchy Tom Tom Club hook, a sample of which is the heart of this upbeat slice of dance pop. "I had the melody idea for 'Fantasy' and I was listening to the radio and heard 'Genius of Love,' and I hadn't heard it in a long time," Carey said. "It reminded me of growing up and listening to the radio and that feeling the song gave me seemed to go with the melody and basic idea I had for 'Fantasy.' I initially told [co-writer] Dave Hall about the idea, and we did it. We called up the Tom Tom Club and they were really into it."
