  • Split Single, the music project of Jason Narducy (Superchunk, Verbow), will release their sophomore album, Metal Frames, on November 18. Today they’ve shared the album track “Leave My Mind.” The beautiful harmonies, haunting lyrics, and bad ass guitar rifts really knock this one out of the park. [Stereogum]

  • Record labels Secretly Canadian and Chimera Music are teaming up to release a huge collection of Yoko Ono‘s music. The Yoko Ono Reissue Project will include 11 studio albums spanning between 1968 through 1985. Each album will be remastered and available for digital download for the first time. Also, the vinyl editions will be sold in replica’s of their original packaging. The first three albums – Unknown Music, No. 1: Two Virgins by John Lennon and Yoko Ono (1968), Unknown Music, No. 2: Life with the Lions by John Lennon and Yoko Ono (1969), and Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band (1970) – will drop on November 11. Check out the project’s trailer below. [Pitchfork]

  • Swedish folksinger Kristian Matsson, aka The Tallest Man on Earth, has shared a video for his latest single “Rivers.” It’s a simple, stripped-down visual with Matsson letting his expressive vocals do the work. [Stereogum]

  • Next month, Stevie Nicks will head out on an extensive North American tour to promote her 2014 compilation album 24 Karat Gold: Songs From the Vault. In an interview with the New York Times, Nicks explained the differences between touring solo and touring with Fleetwood Mac. “In my band, there is no arguing. I am the boss. My solo career is probably the reason Fleetwood Mac is still together in 2016, because I was always happy to leave Fleetwood Mac, and I was always happy to come back, too.” Nicks will perform at Key Arena on December 11.
