In a prime example of how scary the music industry really can be:

dirty headsFrom ABC 1 on 1 : If you like the latest song from The Dirty Heads, “My Sweet Summer,” you’re not alone. The tune climbed to number 18 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart this week, on the strength of its strong hip-hop vibe and reggae hook.  But before all those different sonic flavors took shape, the song started out as an idea for a country tune for country music superstar Kenny Chesney.

Dirty Heads singer Dirty J tells ABC News Radio, “We had heard that Kenny Chesney was playing our music before his shows, playing it while [the audience was] waiting for him to come out, and so I was like, ‘Oh cool, I’m gonna try to write a song, or maybe a hook or something, for Chesney.’”

Before Dirty J and songwriting partner Duddy B could construct the country song, though, they were inspired to mold it in a kenny-chesney-new-album-release-date-2013different way.  Still,  Duddy B admits to ABC News Radio, “[We] blew it, [we] should have sent that [to Kenny Chesney]. Would have been way bigger than ‘Sweet Summer!’”

All kidding aside, both Duddy B and Dirty J say they’re “really stoked” and they “love that song.” 

“My Sweet Summer” is the first single from The Dirty Heads’ new album Sound of Change, which hits digital and bricks-and-mortar retailers on July 8.

From the original in Rolling Stone: “The 11-track lullaby, Plant’s first album since 2010′s Band of Joy,was produced by Plant and largely recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World studios. Last month, Plant spoke to Rolling Stone about the album, calling it a “celebratory record” and describing the sound as “very crunchy and gritty, very West African and very Massive Attack-y.’He also added, perhaps unaware of the future premiere source, ‘There’s a lot of bottom end, so it might sound all right at a Jamaican party, but I’m not sure it would sound all right on NPR.’ (In a press release, he uses a similar description of “trance meets Zep.”)”

From VH1 Radio Network:

Korn(1-1403110798)Last year, Korn released their latest album, The Paradigm Shift, and this summer, they plan to put out an expanded edition of the effort.  The reissue features live tracks, new artwork, and best of all, new tracks that the band worked on during the sessions for the CD but didn’t make the cut.  Among the new songs are their latest single, “Hater,” and a track called “Hercules” that was intended for a movie.  A release date hasn’t yet been set but you can stay up to date at Korn.com Jonathan said of their new single, “In the world, everyone has haters.  Everyone has someone who hates on you cause you have something they want.  It’s really, like, the first empowering song I’ve ever written.”  Will you be getting the expanded version of The Paradigm Shift?

From VH1 Radio Network:

Slash and Myles and Conspirators(1-1402674781)Slash’s new solo album, World on Fire, is out on September 15th, but the title track is available now.  The rocker uploaded the song to YouTube.  Check it out at his YouTubechannel or download it at iTunes.  Meanwhile, you can stay up to date with the legendary guitarist at Twitter.com/Slash.  World on Fire is Slash’s third solo album and, like his last one, will feature Alter Bridge singerMyles Kennedy on vocals for all tracks.  

Last week in Sweden, Slash got a new tattoo.  He told a local paper that it was his own design that he came up with while working on his second solo CD, Apocalyptic Love, but it was “too daring” for the cover of the album. He then gave his first tattoo, inking his autograph on the tattoo artist’s leg.  

So…What do you think of “World on Fire?”
