Yesterday Patrick Stump AKA the singer from Fall Out Boy uploaded a video to youtube of him performing A Cappella to a bunch of tracks. The video sees him in what looks like a practice room/studio/bedroom and belting out his own version of Empire State Of Mind from Jay-Z & Alicia Keys, Eminem & Rihanna's "Love The Way You Lie", "Need You Now" by Lady Antebellum, Cee Lo Green's huge hit "Fuck You" and "Nothin' On You" from B.o.B Featuring Bruno Mars.
It's clear to the see the passion from Patrick as he's sat in his chair doing some pretty full on arm and head movements! Watching it without the sound may leave you with a confused look on your face! Which I did before realising my headphones were plugged in! Early Mornings are a no go for me at the moment! Enjoy the video.

This is it everybody. It's pretty clear at this point that the long awaited fourth LP from New York rockers The Strokes is finally coming out. Not only have they confirmed that the album is complete, they've also set a definite release date for the album. If that's not convincing enough, the band is set to appear at this years Coachella Music Festival.
Their fourth LP has officially been titled Angles, which, according to guitarist Albert Hammond, Jr. in an interview with Rolling Stone, is because "[i]t's what the record sounds like. It comes from five different people." The interview also revealed the first single from the album "Undercover of Darkness," as well as several other songs included on the LP such as "Taken for a Fool," "Life is Simple," and "Machu Picchu."
Easily the best news that comes from the interview is the reveal that The Strokes will in fact be touring this year, but also that, according to Hammond, Jr., "We want to come back strong but slowly, so we can grow live and also make new music. We want to release albums quicker.”
Angles is set to be released on March 22nd, so mark your calendars and get ready!
Everything Everything dropped into the Radio One Live Lounge to perform a track, but as we know when bands step into the Live Lounge they have a tendancy to do some pretty unusual covers. Yesterday was no different and saw the boys do a rendition of Rihanna's track "What's My Name".
