[Listen] Dirty Projectors & Björk - "All We Are", Collaboration Releases Today

Last week it was announced that Dirty Projectors were working on a collaboration with the ever so amazing (and my future wife) Björk on a 7 track EP titled Mount Wittenberg Orca. The EP is now available as a digital download here. Check out the track "All We Are" below and pick up this awesome album, not only because its great but because it is for a great cause.

David Longstreth from the Dirty Projectors stated in an online letter on the website:

We’ve decided to give away all the money that Wittenberg generates to the project of creating international marine protected areas. Only 1% of the oceans are protected in any way and this is a huge problem. We’re working with the National Geographic Society to create areas of sustainability, so the oceans don’t end up like a giant poisonous corpse hugging the continents. You can learn more about this project here and here and here and here.

We’re so psyched about how this recording came out and hope you are too. Don’t listen on those tinny computer speakers — put in on the stereo and blast dat shiiiiiiiiii!!

Enjoy.

[Watch] Incubus' Brandon Boyd Drops New Video For Single "Runaway Train" And Releases Solo Album

I'm with the Rock it Out! Blog on this one (who I also thank for this wonderful news.) How in the world did I not know about Incubus' frontman Brandon Boyd's solo album!? Obviously, I'm not a fan of his on Facebook (which I feel stupid for now.) But it appeared to have happened on 6th of June, Brandon announced through his facebook page that he will be releasing a solo album called The Wild Trapeze. The awesome news? The album comes out next week, July 6th.

Boyd recently released a video for his new single, “Runaway Train”, which you can check out above. So yeah? I feel like I fail as an Incubus fan for not knowing this but I am pretty psyched. The only solo track I ever heard from Brandon was on the GAP Favorite Songs Fall 2005 compilation. No, I didn't buy it. I scoured the internet to hear the one song Brandon did titled, "Alison" which is an Elvis Costello. The CD is pretty hard to find so I wont make you suffer. Check out the track below you lucky bastards you.

Make sure you pick up Brandon's new solo album when it drops.
