The Weeknd Covers Rolling Stone

The Weeknd has landed the forthcoming cover of Rolling Stone and it is well deserved. With two chart topping singles and album on the Billboard charts, this has definitely been the year of The Weeknd. He has slowly been doing more and more interviews, but a cover story with Rolling Stone is a bit more special. The Weeknd talks growing up, his initial mixtapes, performing on SNL and much more.

Video: Jake Bugg – “Slumville Sunrise”

posted by Oscar October 21, 2013

Jake Bugg has released his latest video for his new single, “Slumville Sunrise” and the clip is weird and funny, to say the least. Like taking a page straight out of a book filled with British Comedy go-to bits, the video starts with Bugg running from police after stealing an engagement ring and then all sorts of other characters join in on the chase (sometimes in that comical “fast-forward” pace). Elvis impersonators, the most terribly produced sailing scene, and even a “granny swap.” This is just weird and so un-Bugg-like, but that’s part of what makes this video fun to look at.

I honestly never thought this is what the video would turn out to be like.

See the Shane Meadows-directed video above. Get “Slumville Sunrise,” out now on iTunes, here: http://po.st/SlumvilleSunriseYTd

Jake Bugg – “Slumville Sunrise”

posted by Oscar October 17, 2013

Jake Bugg is set to release his newest album, Shangri-La (produced by Rick Rubin at his studios that inspired the album’s title), in November of this year and today he’s released a new look at it via Rolling Stone. The track is called “Slumville Sunrise” and it follows the Rock-ier sound heard on “Trouble Town” from his last album except with a more killer solo.

America’s funniest comedian, as dark and troubled as his life has been at times, has landed on one of the most important Entertainment publications around, Rolling Stone. As noted by RS, this is Louis C.K.’s first appearance on their cover in which they have a career-spanning Q&A where they discuss drug abuse, bombing onstage and other personal lowlights that have been subject to becoming material for his standup and tv shows.

Louie tells RS: “The Louie on the show is pretty happy… and I’m about as happy as he is. I don’t mind feeling sad. Sadness is a lucky thing to feel.”

Pick up the new issue of Rolling Stone when it hit stands and the iTunes App Store this Friday, April 12th, before C.K.’s latest comedy special premieres Saturday on HBO.
