Cat Stevens Returns as Yusuf For Bluesy Album About Breaking Free — Just beyond some palm trees in Dubai, the man many know as Cat Stevens watches the sun set and reflects on Tell 'Em I'm Gone , his upcoming album that's attached to his not-as-known onstage and offstage moniker, Yusuf. His calming voice spills over the phone, disparate from the forceful message he's trying to relay about his bluesy project.

Watch Jessica Lange Hypnotically Sing Lana Del Rey's 'Gods & Monsters' — Another episode, another cover song on Ryan Murphy's Glee - oops, excuse us - we mean American Horror Story: Freak Show . Like the kids on Glee, the fame-hungry Elsa Mars (Jessica Lange) once again belted a song to propel the story's narrative in Freak Show's Episode 3.

'American Horror Story' Episode 3: Two Faces Are More Evil Than One — The freaks come out at night, just not on Halloween.

'Lion King' Mixed With Taylor Swift's 'Out of the Woods' Moves Us All — It's the "Circle of Life" - combined with Taylor Swift's "Out of the Woods" - and it moves us all. Mashup maestro Chambaland has beautifully blended chants and beats from Disney's 1994 classic The Lion King with Swift's dramatic lyrics and pounding drums. In the mashup, Swift sings about the fragility of relationships, using lyrics about romantic Polaroid pictures, a boyfriend's paper-plane necklace and a tragic car crash.

Um, 8 Seconds of Static Put Taylor Swift at No. 1 on Canada’s iTunes Chart — If you lived in Canada, you could've been getting down to this sick beat ... of static? A Taylor Swift audio clip called "Track 3" was accidentally made available to Canadian iTunes users, some of whom purchased it for $1.29 (though most likely got it because they have her album pre-ordered) only to receive eight seconds of white noise in return.

Mockingjay' Soundtrack Includes Kanye, Miguel — Details about the Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 soundtrack, which was curated by Lorde, have remained a secret since Lionsgate selected the singer. But on Tuesday, we got a glimpse of the "Royals" singer's handiwork when the track list popped up on iTunes.

This Harry Potter Rap Is For Muggles Wishing Quidditch Was a Real Sport — "Just because you're flying on the ground doesn't mean it isn't fun at all, doesn't mean it isn't fun at all. No, and foreheads ain't the only place you can get scars that make you special," Sebastian Milla raps at the end of his Harry Potter -themed song.

Kelly Clarkson Slays Sam Smith's 'Stay With Me' - and Now We Want a Duet — Kelly Clarkson just put her spin on the ballad of the year a.k.a. Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" at Symphony Park in Charlotte during her first solo concert since giving birth in June. "I love this song. I know you've probably heard it bunch so just bear with me," Clarkson, who earned the first American Idol title in 2002, told the audience Saturday.

Spotify Streams Will Determine VH1's 'You Oughta Know' Artist of the Year — Streams and tweets will count as votes when VH1 pits 11 artists from " You Oughta Know," its franchise that promotes fresh voices, against each other to determine the fan favorite from this year's crop of newcomers. To determine the winner, VH1 is using Spotify and Twitter as the voting platforms. Starting Tuesday and lasting until Nov.

Taylor Swift's 'Welcome to New York' Sounds a Lot Like a Robyn Song — Push play. No, this is not a dance hit from Swedish singer Robyn you're hearing. It's Taylor Swift's new single "Welcome to New York," the third released track from her upcoming pop album 1989. But it sounds like Robyn's "Call Your Girlfriend."
