  • Danger Mouse, a.k.a. Brian Joseph Burton, and The Shins’ James Mercer have united once again under the name Broken Bells. They’ve shared their video for their dazzling new track “Holding on for Life”. The visual features actress Kate Mara (American Horror Story, House of Cards) and Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) as some sort of astronauts. Broken Bells will drop their new LP, After the Disco, on January 14. [Pitchfork]

  • LA-based producer/DJ Diplo‘s remixed version of Grizzly Bear‘s “Will Calls” is featured on the band’s expanded edition of their 2012 album, Shields. The song premiered today on Sirius/XM radio, but in case you missed it, here’s your chance to play it again and again. [Pitchfork]

  • Kings of Leon debuted their video for “Beautiful War” today. It’s a high production affair that tells a harrowing story of a professional bull rider whose life takes a tragic turn and ends up in prison. [CoS]
