The Barenaked Ladies are heading back into the recording studio this April to produce a new album, minus their frontman Steve Page. Something Ed Robertson calls “a really positive thing for all of us. The four remaining members will continue on with their love of music. Recently speaking out about the band’s loss, Ed Robertson said:

“The new songs we are writing are great. There still four writers and four singers and four multi-instrumentalists in the Barenaked Ladies, so there’s a lot to draw on going forward,” said Barenaked Ladies’ Ed Robertson.

The Black Eyed Peas first single, Boom Boom Pow has been released. The new song is in support of their forthcoming studio album titled The END, meaning The Energy Never Dies. Will.i.am spoke out about the group’s efforts after a four year haitus saying:

“When [the album] comes out, there’ll be 12 songs on it, but the next day there could be 100 songs, 50 sketches, 1,000 blogs all around The E.N.D., so the energy really, truly never dies.”

“I’m trying to break away from the concept of an album. What is an album when you put 12 songs on iTunes and people can pick at it like scabs? That’s not an album. There is no album anymore.”

Boom Boom Pow is just a taste of what you can expect to hear on their latest twelve track disc along with “a lot of dance stuff, real melodic, electronic, soulful. We call it, like, electric static funk, something like that.” The END is scheduled to hit shelves on June 9th via Interscope Records.

Pete Doherty’s Last of the English Roses Video has been released. The BabyShambles rocker’s song comes off of his first studio solo album titled Grace/Wastelands. The album is set for release on March 16.

Pete Doherty’s album was produced by Stephen Street. The artist’s band members from Babyshambles, Mik Whitnall, Adam Ficek and Drew McConnell are also on the new solo album as well as the Blur’s guitarist Graham Coxon. Pete Doherty said he wasn’t sure “how Graham ended up on the album… Seeing as I’m lucid and being quite honest I’ll just say he’s an amazing fella. I was forced to push myself as a musician.”

The Last of the English Roses and the other tracks were recorded at the Olympic Studios in London. Do you think it will be any good? So far things aren’t looking up for the troubled rocker’s solo efforts. Playbackstl.com has dubbed his attempts a “CD your mom is destined to like”. Doesn’t sound too promising.

Decide for yourself and check out the Last of the English Roses Video after the jump.

Wall-E ‘Down to Earth’ Video, Lyrics

Here is the Peter Gabriel Academy Award nominated song. ‘Down to Earth’ from Disney’s Wall-E movie soundtrack. See video, lyrics and photos here.

peter gabriel 1

Peter Gabriel is the vocalist, songwriter and producer of the song which features The Soweto Gospel Choir. He composed the music with Thomas Newman.

The song plays during the end credits of the Disney’s Wall-E, a computer animated movie written and directed by Andrew Stanton and produced by Pixar Animation Studio, with voice actors Fred Willard, Jeff Garlin, John Ratzenberger, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Burtt, and Elissa Knight. The movie is set in the 29th century and chronicles the story of the title character, a trash-compacting robot designed to clean up the toxic waste covering the Planet Earth of that era. He falls in love with another robot named EVE, and eventually follows her into outer space.

The movie was released in theaters in June 2008 to box office success and critical acclaim. It won the 2009 Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature Film, and it is nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Animated Feature.

‘Down to Earth’ is one of three contenders for the 2009 Best Song Oscar, competing against ‘Jai Ho’
and ‘O Saya,’ both from ‘Slumdog Millionaire.’ It won the 2009 Grammy Award for Best Song from a Motion Picture and is heavily favored to win the Academy Award.

Peter Gabriel will not be performing at the 81st Academy Awards, as he is protesting the restrictions the show’s producers have put in place which would allow him to perform only 65 seconds of the song as part of a medley.

“We were originally hoping to perform. We’d assumed, as there are only three nominees, that the songs would be performed in full. But the producers came in to revamp it as audience figures were falling off,” Gabriel said in a video on his Website, “So I’ve now decided to withdraw from the ceremony, but I’ll still go along. I do think it’s a bit unfortunate. I do think songwriters, even though they’re a small part of the filmmaking process… we still work bloody hard and I think deserve a place in the ceremony as well.”

Peter Gabriel began his music career as frontman and songwriter for the British -rock band Genesis, embarking on a solo career in the mid-1970s. In additional to achieving commercial success he is a long-time advocate of world music with his World of Music, Arts, and Dance (WOMAD) Festival which spotlights the work of performers from around the world. He released Hit, a compilation of greatest hits in released in 2003. In recent years he has recorded songs for numerous movie soundtracks, including the Oscar-nominated “Down to Earth” for Disney’s Wall-E.

Here are several photos and images from Wall-E. Watch the music video below.
