The Killers Premiere "Human" Video

October 16, 2008 5:20 PM ET

The Killers released their new video for "Human" today, the first single from their upcoming Day & Age. In the clip, the Killers set up their gear in a desert setting that's straight out of every John Ford film ever made and perform the song. There are also cougars and Siberian tigers roaming the rocks, as well as massive lighting rigs even though they're performing during daytime in the desert. The other big revelation: Brandon Flowers has shaved his moustache since leaving Sam's Town. Day & Age is out November 25th, the same week as Guns N' Roses' Chinese Democracy and Kanye West's 808s & Heartbreak.

“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.
