Premiere: Marc Almond Feat. Beth Ditto - When The Comet Comes

Absolute legend Marc Almond is back with a brand new pop album! The Velvet Trail drops on March 9th and features 16 brand new tracks. H e a v e n! Lead single When The Comet Comes has amazing Beth Ditto (!) as a duet partner. Over a real nice and fluffy beat we're getting two of our favourite voices, both equally as distinct and unique. The whole album is produced by Chris Braide who previously has worked with people like Lana Del Rey, Beyoncé and Britney Spears. Pretty intriguing to hear an easy accessible song coming to life with the power of Almond and Ditto. Listen below to the really great BBC Radio Leeds interview from Monday - song at the 06:04 mark. We'll post a HQ stream when it becomes available. If you can't wait head to iTunes to listen to it there. Enjoy! Thoughts? Thank you Michael!

Premiere: Marina and The Diamonds - Forget

The wonderful Marina Diamandis is someone we'd never Forget and with this new single from upcoming album FROOT she drops one of her best tracks yet. She hits us right in the solar plexus with this frank look at deep hurt and diving deep into the pool of memories and pull the drain stopper out. Forgive and forget is hard and sometimes takes almost superhuman powers to make it through but on the other side a whole ocean of opportunities are waiting. We love how this heavy topic is discussed over a very organic and straight forward production. It's refreshing to listen to and makes us even more curious of the full album - out March 16th. Also, how amazing does she pronounce the word tortoise? We'd happily walk slowly next to you Marina! Enjoy! Thoughts?

'cause I have lived my life in debt
I've spent my days in deep regret
Yeah, I've been living in the red
But I wanna forgive and forget

Free Download: Erykah Badu - On & On (Diskobeistet Remix)

Erykah Badu's incredible 1997 debut single On & On surely is one of the best to ever launch a career in music. It's awesome, insightful, unique and thought-provoking. We've loooved it since the very first time we heard it. The original production is one for the ages and we're crazy for the restraint and subtle emotional charges in it. Norwegian Diskobeistet amps up the mood and even throws in some *tropical* flavours in there. N i c e! That new bassline sends us straight into party mode on a slow Sunday night. Top notch! It feels like a brand new track almost - imagine Erykah's vox on an original house track - we'd be soaring! Enjoy the dl below!

Premiere: Florence + The Machine - What Kind Of Man (Nicolas Jaar Remix)

Florence + The Machine's electrifying lead single What Kind Of Man truly jump started the How Big How Blue How Beautiful (out June 1st) album era a few weeks ago. Its fiery heart and punky outlook is hypnotizing, especially when paired to those gory visuals and choreography. Deep house producer Nicolas Jaar injects a whole new kind of energy with his 12+ minute remix. It's dark and brooding and transfixes you with the messed up vocals and when the electronica kicks in it's sweet with a steely aftertaste. It's disco with a strange kick. Coffee with a shot of whiskey. Flo with a set of sharp knives. Something is wrong but it's impossible to look away. Real awesome! Thoughts?

Free Download: Dolly Parton - Jolene (Todd Terje Remix)

Last year we posted this beaut of a bootleg of Dolly Parton's iconic 1973 hit now turned evergreen - Jolene. Here's a new one from Norwegian superhero DJ Todd Terje! The stellar and instantly recognizable guitar riff shines in what seems like an endless loop. We're getting some trippy vibes from a superb cocktail bar where the drinks are long and the tears taste of champagne. Imagine a full Dolly remix album utilizing the original acapella tracks and original stems - we'd be flying! Go grab the download below, enjoy!
