Frank Ocean at ATP NYC 2012 (more by Erik Erikson)
Frank Ocean

Frank Ocean stopped by a Spotify press conference in NYC this past Thursday (12/6) to play a mini set, during which he prefaced his track "Voodoo" with a portion of Radiohead's "Fake Plastic Trees." You can watch a video of Frank singing the track below (via NME).

It was the same event that Glassnote CEO Daniel Glass announced Phoenix's new album at, and Rolling Stone also reports that the event featured a Q&A between old enemies Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich and Napster founder Sean Parker:

Ulrich and Parker represented a reunion of the two most public figures in the Metallica-Napster copyright battle in the late 1990s. The two play nice these days - Metallica announced today they are putting their music on Spotify - but it wasn't always that way.

"We just wanted to control what was going on with our music, because that's what we'd always done," said Ulrich, explaining his band's position at the time. "It became Metallica against its fans, which was never the fucking point."

Glad to see they're playing nice.

Why are you so glad about it? What so great about playing nice? When you need to fight you fight.
