Empire of the Sun have released the video for their new single, "Alive," from their forthcoming album Ice on the Dune. Like most of their videos it's slightly over the top. You can watch it below.
Kelis, who has always been one of the more adventurous artists in popular R&B, is set to release her next album, FOOD, this September. The album was produced by TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek and it will come out on his Federal Prism label. The first single, "Jerk Ribs" (which surfaced a few days ago, but was mislabeled as "Call on Me") sees Kelis soaring over a clattering beat and some anthemic horns, and it's one of her strongest singles in years. You can stream/download it below. - Andrew
