Friday Music News

  • A$AP Rocky and French producer Gesaffelstein have shared their killer track for the highly-anticipated film Divergent. “In Distress” pulls no punches and I can already hear it blasting over an intense sci-fi fight scene. The Divergent soundtrack (out on March 11) will also include new music from Ellie Goulding, Kendrick Lamar, Tame Impala, and many more. [Stereogum]

  • Billy Corgan, of The Smashing Pumpkins fame, was so inspired by by Hermann Hesse’s 1922 novel Siddhartha that he has decided to create an “ambient/musical interpretation” that will span between eight-to-nine hours. If you are looking for something to fill your ENTIRE day, you can stream the entire thing live, below. [Pitchfork]

  • Electronic music heavyweight, Moby remixed Washed Out‘s Paracosm dazzling track “All I Know.” Moby’s version doesn’t stray too far form the original. He really just amps up the melody to create a more vivid record. [Stereogum]

  • British indie rockers Bombay Bicycle Club crossed genre lines during their appearance on BBC Live Lounge. Their cover of Disclosure‘s “F For You (featuring Mary J. Blige)” takes a bare bones approach to a dazzling soulful track, and somehow it works. Check it out. [CoS]
