Congratulations to Reigen! The last we heard from him was at Christmas but we were excited to read this from his Facebook and now can’t wait until Friday for what we’re guessing is “Play It Cool.”

It’s Official! I just sent my first ever real SINGLE to iTunes/Spotify/Google Play/etc… and it will be live for all of you on Valentine’s Day, THIS FRIDAY, Feb. 14th. This will mean I am officially a published artist. Thank you all so much for your support on the road to get to this point, it has been INCREDIBLE and I am so excited to share this song with you- I think you’re going to love it. I will be also releasing the MUSIC VIDEO on the SAME DAY featuring the stunning Claudia Veizaga, me and the love that is play it cool.

Thanks for making our holidays better!

So we’re glad Rufus Wainwright is dropping a greatest hits album, but he’s also delivering some newness to it. He posted this lyric video to his new song “Me and Liza” and now you can too.

Vibrate – The Best of Rufus Wainwright will be out March 3.

Such a week of great announcements. First Bob Mould, now Rufus Wainwright!

Come March 3, Wainwright will release Vibrate: The Best of Rufus Wainwright that will feature 18 tracks stemming back to his self-titled career debut in 1998. The deluxe version will feature 16 additional rare and unreleased live and studio recordings.” The second disc will feature new song “Chic And Pointless” and the first physical release of “WWIII.”

Uh, yes please.

Both standard and deluxe versions are available for pre-order. Read the track list after the jump.

The new Jeffree Star single we mentioned earlier is now out. We think we’re digging it. You?

Forget kiki, let’s have an Okereke summer. Bloc Party is going to make that happen with the announcement of their five-track EP The Nextwave Sessions out in August as according to this post in Spin. Which makes this double-special since we just saw BP’s last release Four out in 2012. The more we hear from Okereke and company, the better.

From Spin.com:

Opening track “Ratchet,” one of two songs here produced by Dan Carey (Bat for Lashes, Hot Chip), will premiere later today on BBC Radio 1. Frontman Kele Okereke said the disco-splashed rager has proved to be a hit at live shows. “‘Ratchet’ really came together whilst we were on tour in 2012,” he said in a statement. “We started slipping it into the sets at the start of this year just to try it out and the reactions were insane. We knew we had something special.”

The release date for The Nextwave Sessions is set for August 13 on Frenchkiss Records. Watch the video for “Ratchet” after the jump.

There weren’t enough words when I reviewed Grant’s Pale Green Ghosts. It’s brilliant and amazing and all things great. And truly a landmark for queer music. I think so at least.

Check out my review for the Dallas Voice here.

Today marks the US release of Queens of the Stone Age’s newest album, …Like Clockwork and Elton John makes a guest appearance. No, not as a queen of the stone age, but rather as EltonJohn.com editors put it:

Elton plays piano and sings background vocals on the song. The collaboration came as a result of Elton coming across a side-project of Grohl’s and QOTSA front-man Josh Homme’s, Them Crooked Vultures. This led to his listening to earlier QOTSA material and being so enthused by it that he called Homme on the phone to suggest they work together.

John appears on “Fairweather Friends.” As the site reminds, this marks John’s second guest appearance of the year. He joined Fall Out Boy on the title track of their comeback album Save Rock and Roll earlier this Spring.

Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears adds his flair to QOTSA with additional vocals on the opening track “Keep Your Eyes Peeled,” a heavy weight of a song that is far from how we’re used to hearing Shears. Although, if Shears hadn’t posted this, I might not have heard him in the song. Now knowing, I can hear his specific touch to the track. Strange how that works.

Watch the video of “Peeled” after the jump.
