Neneh Cherry x Jean-Baptiste Mondino - 'Everything'

Neneh Cherry has collaborated with iconic 
French photographer/director Jean-Baptiste Mondino on the video for 'Everything', taken from her Blank Project LP. 
It marks the pair's fifth collaboration together and sees Neneh, shot entirely in black and white, throwing down some serious dance moves in a warehouse - clad in BLK DNM, Whyred, Christopher Shannon and Rick Owens - styled by the legendary Judy Blame.
Watch the video below courtesy of i-D.

'Everything' is released as a digital single on June 17 with remixes also available as a 12".


Lykke Li - No Rest For The Wicked (Feat. A$AP Rocky)

Two of my favourites, A$AP Rocky and Swedish singer Lykke Li, have collaborated for a new remix of Li's track 'No Rest For The Wicked.'
With A$AP rhyming, “If love don’t work/ It just gon’ hurt/ It all goes bad/ It just gets worse/ I can’t describe with just one verse.” - it totally fits in with Li's upcoming heart-pouring-out power ballad filled album which she says is "about me and the guilt and the shame and the hurt and the pride and the confusion of being a woman."

Happy happy then!

Listen to the A$AP take below which will appear on Li's 'I Never Learn' LP due out May 5th via LL Recordings / Atlantic Records - full tracklisting below:

'I Never Learn'
'No Rest for the Wicked'
'Just Like a Dream'
'Love Me Like I'm Not Made of Stone'
'Never Gonna Love Again'
'Heart of Steel'
'Sleeping Alone'

Li will also play two live dates in London as part of a world tour at Village Underground on May 8/9.

SZA ft. Isaiah Rashad - Warm Winds

Beyo and Jay WHO?
Meet hip-hop's new power couple (or at least they should be), SZA and Isaiah Rashad.
The pair have teamed up for the ultra trippy hippy astral-high inducing 'Warm Winds' which is accompanied by a hazy lo-fi video shot with a pastoral backdrop, probably somewhere in America's Deep South - which is also where rapper Isaiah hails from, Chattanooga, Tennessee y'all.

Warm Winds is taken from SZA's new debut EP 'Z' which is pure ear porn and available now on iTunes - go download it.


Lana Del Rey - West Coast

So Lana dropped her new track 'West Coast' during Coachella-ella-ella over the weekend and basically, everything about this song is just all kinds of YES!

There is no official video as yet but she's kindly released a looping clip with audio, featuring her in a vintage leather jacket with windswept beach hair twirling around in the breeze - and like finding a cherry on top of your hot dudes with long-hair Sundae.... she's joined by a hot dude with long hair too. 

Please take me right there right now.

* West Coast is released in the UK on May 18.
