It’s been called “a funky transformation”(UPROXX) and a “groovy mashup”(AV CLUB) that “sounds more like a Sugarhill Gang track than the original song”(ROLLING STONE)… And now “Find My Way (feat. Beck)” has been #ThreeImagined as a psychedelic visual trip that blurs the boundaries of time, space — and even identity.
The “Find My Way (feat. Beck)” video was co-produced by Hyperreal Digital, which specializes in the creation of hyper-realistic digital avatars. “The technology to de-age talent and have them perform in creative environments like this is now fully-realized, even with one of the most recognized faces in the world,” said Hyperreal’s CEO Remington Scott.
Directed by Andrew Donoho (Janelle Monae, The Strokes, Khalid) and choreographed by Phil Tayag (Bruno Mars, Jabbawockeez), “Find My Way (feat. Beck)” was unveiled to the world today via a global broadcast premiere on MTV Live, MTVU and across MTV’s worldwide network of channels, as well as on the ViacomCBS Times Square billboard in New York.
Upon its digital release in April, McCartney III Imagined moved THE NEW YORK TIMES to say “Don’t take Paul McCartney’s enduring gifts — natural melody, succinctly surprising lyrics, sly chord progressions, tidy arrangements — for granted. Other songwriters don’t.” Personally curated by Paul, the album features an eclectic all-star lineup featuring Damon Albarn, Anderson .Paak, Blood Orange, Phoebe Bridgers, EOB, Dominic Fike, Josh Homme, Khruangbin, St. Vincent and 3D RDN of Massive Attack, each covering and/or reimagining their favorite moments from Paul’s acclaimed McCartney III album in their own signature styles. The result is a kaleidoscopic reinterpretation – one that serves as an extension of the instantly beloved McCartney III while standing on its own as a brilliant and adventurous milestone in the McCartney discography.
Physical editions of McCartney III Imagined will include the exclusive bonus track “Long Tailed Winter Bird (Idris Elba Remix).”

Not content to bring live rock n roll marathons back to the Lower 48, Foo Fighters have confirmed a three-show expedition to Alaska.
The band will play its first ever shows in the Last Frontier August 17th and 19th at the Dena’ina Center in Anchorage, and August 21st at the Carlson Center in Fairbanks.
For anyone who’s been living under a glacier, Foo Fighters’ Alaskan dates are the latest addition to a U.S. itinerary that kicked off last month with the now legendary sold-out, full-capacity Madison Square Garden show that welcomed live music back to New York—a show ROLLING STONE described as “three loud, sweaty, emotional, and supremely fun hours.”
Metallica has announced details of its massive 40th birthday celebration: The band will mark this milestone by inviting the worldwide Metallica Family to join them in their hometown of San Francisco for two unique live shows featuring two different setlists December 17 and 19 at Chase Center. Tickets for these shows will be available only to registered members of Metallica’s Fifth Member fan club (more details below).
The 40th anniversary shows see Metallica return to Chase Center for the first time since the September 2019 S&M2 concerts that also served as the venue’s grand opening. It was impossible not to notice that fans from more than 60 countries traveled to the City by the Bay and completely took over San Francisco for S&M2 weekend. That outpouring of positive vibes from around the world inspired Metallica to invite those Fifth Members back—and this time, in addition to the two shows at Chase Center, Metallica will be curating other live music and comedy events, Blackened Whiskey tastings, and so much more all around the city during the long four-day weekend of celebrations starting on Thursday, December 16. Details and ticketing information for these various events will be announced as they are confirmed.
Tickets for the December 17 and 19 Chase Center shows will be available only to registered Fifth Members. In an effort to make it as fair as possible for every member who would like to attend, Fifth Members are invited to enter to win a reservation code that will guarantee them the opportunity to purchase tickets. Reservation winners will be chosen randomly and e-mailed additional information and directions to proceed with purchase.
Winners will have the option to choose from two-day tickets to gain entry to both Metallica shows at the Chase Center or single day tickets for the show on either December 17 or December 19. Travel packages that include both tickets and hotel accommodations will also be available at www.metallicatravel.com. All members will be limited to a maximum purchase of two show tickets or one hotel/ticket package (package options include either two or four tickets).
Today, St. Vincent has officially announced Down And Out Downtown, the GRAMMY-award winning artist’s full length live streamed concert debut. Airing exclusively via the premium digital live platform Moment House on Wednesday, August 4th and Thursday, August 5th (depending on territory), Down And Out Downtown will showcase the live premieres of several new tracks from St. Vincent’s acclaimed new album Daddy’s Home in addition to new arrangements of hits and deep cuts from her illustrious catalogue—all performed alongside her top shelf Down And Out Downtown Band comprised of Justin Meldal-Johnsen (bass), Jason Falkner (guitar), Rachel Eckroth (keys), Mark Guiliana (drums), and backing vocalists Nayanna Holley, Sy Smith and Neka Hamilton.
Directed by Bill Benz (Portlandia), who also directed the forthcoming film The Nowhere Inn co-written by and starring St. Vincent, Down And Out Downtown is a sepia toned tour de force of gritty grooves, hungover glamour and spellbinding musicality.

For one night only, St. Vincent’s moment will be broadcast to various territories around the world including North and South America, Asia, Australia & New Zealand, and the UK, Europe and Africa. Tickets are now on sale HERE.

Out now via Loma Vista Recordings, Daddy’s Home was produced by Annie Clark and Jack Antonoff, recorded by Laura Sisk, mixed by Cian Riordan, and mastered by Chris Gehringer. The music was performed by Annie, Jack, Cian, Thomas, Evan Smith, Sam KS, Greg Leisz, Daniel Hart, Michael Leonhart, Lynne Fiddmont and Kenya Hathaway.
ABOUT ST. VINCENT Annie Clark made her recorded debut as St. Vincent in 2007 with Marry Me, quickly becoming regarded as one of the most innovative and fascinating presences in modern music. Each of St. Vincent’s subsequent albums has met with critical acclaim and commercial success eclipsing that of its predecessor. These albums would include Actor (2009), Strange Mercy (2011), and her self-titled fourth album and winner of the 2014 GRAMMY for Best Alternative Album, making her only the second female artist ever to win in that category. In addition to these solo works, St. Vincent joined with David Byrne to record and release the collaborative album Love This Giant in 2012, and performed with Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear of Nirvana at the band’s 2014 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2017, working with co-producer Jack Antonoff, St. Vincent created a defining statement with MASSEDUCTION. The album broke St. Vincent into the U.S. and UK top 10s while landing atop Best of 2017 lists of The New York Times, The Guardian, AV Club, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, NME, Q, USA Today, and more—not to mention winning two GRAMMYs (Best Rock Song for its title track, and Best Recording Package). Most recently, St. Vincent channeled the hungover glamor and gritty sepia-toned soundtrack of 1970s downtown NYC into the triumphant Daddy’s Home, released in May 2021 to near universal acclaim. In a glowing five-star review of the album, Mojo Magazine said “It’s masterful stuff: a full conceptual realization, filled with great melodies, deep grooves, colourful characterisations, and some sonic detail that reveals itself over repeated plays.” Outside of recording and performing, St. Vincent has directed the short horror film The Birthday Party, and co-written and starred as a fictionalized version of herself in the upcoming film The Nowhere Inn.

The 10th anniversary of a milestone in the history of LCD Soundsystem will arrive August 6th, when DFA Records partners with Parlophone / Warner Music to repress the long out-of-print The Long Goodbye: LCD Soundsystem Live At Madison Square Garden, a 5-LP vinyl unabridged recording of LCD Soundsystem’s near four-hour April 2, 2011 show at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The colossal show is also celebrated on 3CD for the very first time.
Produced and mixed by LCD founder and frontman James Murphy, The Long Goodbye is the ultimate audio document of LCD Soundsystem’s legendary — if not quite final — sold-out Madison Square Garden performance.
Hailed by New York magazine as “a marvel of pure craft” and Rolling Stone as a “staggeringly great night,” The Long Goodbye show was the lengthiest, most career-spanning LCD Soundsystem has played to date. The album finds the LCD core live band of Murphy, Pat Mahoney, Nancy Whang, Al Doyle, Gavilán Rayna Russom and Tyler Pope joined by a choir, string and horn sections — plus special guest performances including Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire, Reggie Watts, the Juan MacLean, Shit Robot, Planningtorock, and Shannon Funchess of Light Asylum.
The Long Goodbye: LCD Soundsystem Live At Madison Square Garden is an essential document of a singular moment in the history of LCD Soundsystem and New York City’s musical life. The full tracklist is:
