This is a brand new, weekly feature here at Bloody-Disgusting Music. It is a review, or roundup if you will, of the week’s new singles. On this week’s agenda, we have new music from Marilyn Manson, Slash, The Pretty Reckless, Brad, Norah Jones, ALX, and Cavo, as well as the latest from Korn, and Adelitas Way. Each song enters and gets a review but only one will emerge as the clear winner!
Which song did I pick for my “single of the week”? Find out after the jump!
This is the first mention I’ve made in the music section about the earthquake/tsunami/nuclear situation that is going on in Japan. It’s not because I’m an insensitive prick (okay, maybe just a little), but it’s because there wasn’t really much I could relate to the situation. But if we think about it, the people in that situation are dealing with horrors far worse than we can imagine. They’ve lost their homes, their families and their livelihood. But now, we can help.
Several music groups partnered up and have put together a 38-track iTunes exclusive album for $9.99 with songs from some of the biggest names in music, including Lady Gaga, Red Hot Chili Peppers, John Lennon, U2, Michael Buble, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Madonna, Justin Timberlake, and many more. Proceeds from each sale will go directly to the Japanese Red Cross Society. You can get your copy here
Slash has debuted a new music video for the song, ‘Beautiful Dangerous’, which features Fergie (Black Eyed Peas) on vocals. The video was directed by Rich Lee (Eminem, Norah Jones, Michael Buble, Evanescence) and is based on a treatment written by Fergie. Here are some quotes from Slash and Fergie:
“Fergie came up with the idea for the ‘Beautiful Dangerous’ video. I knew that the way she had it set up it was going to be a showcase for her to be really fucking awesome,” said the legendary guitarist.
“Well, I really just wanted to stalk him. I thought it would be great. Just a normal day at the office really. I’m going to have my way with him [in the video]. You’ll have to watch,” said Fergie. ”I thoroughly enjoyed playing the psychotic character.”
“If you’re going to be stalked by anybody, there’s nobody better to be stalked by then Fergie,” added Slash.
