Watch: Short film previews new Pearl Jam record
Pearl Jam has a new record coming out in a couple weeks, and they're whetting the appetites of their fans with a new film that's nearly nine minutes long.

A lot of bands do this sort of thing, but it's usually just a video of the artist in the studio while working on the album, and maybe an interview.

Pearl Jam takes it a step further with this nearly nine-minute film by director Danny Clinch. It's called "Lightning Bolt." Hey, that's the name of the album too!

Watch to learn more about the album, their first since Backspacer 5 years ago.

Look for the album October 15th.

Cage The Elephant Reveal "Come A Little Closer" Live Video
Cage the Elephant has revealed a new live video for their current single "Come A Little Closer." The video features both in-studio and live concert footage and highlights Matt Shultz's prowess as a striking frontman. To watch, click HERE.

"Come A Little Closer" debuted at #1 on Hype Machine and has gone on to dominate alternative radio for over a month after immediately being added to rotation by over 70 stations around the country. Consequence of Sound praised the track for sounding "larger than ever before, cuing their popularity to potentially reach new heights." New York Magazine called them, "one of America's best, cleverest mainstream rock groups."

The band recently wrapped a run of live arena dates across the US opening for Muse in support of their highly anticipated forthcoming third studio album entitled "Melophobi," which will be released on October 8th via RCA Records.

Old rockers never die; they just keep making new albums
You'd think rock stars would start slowing down as they age, and be content to live on royalties from their previous hits. They could confine their "rocking" to an old wooden chair on the front porch.

Not so with Elton John, who at age 66 has an album coming out  September 24th. Called "The Diving Board," Elton says he was inspired by Bob Dylan this time around, and calls it one of his most "exciting" albums ever.

Sting, who's a mere five years younger than Elton John, has a new album coming out that same day, called "The Last Ship." The word is Sting had been suffering a bit of a writer's block, but broke free when he wrote this album, which is a score for a show he hopes will be make it to Broadway.

And Paul McCartney, at age 71, has an album coming out October 15th, called "New," which he's trying to promote through the social photosharing site Instagram: "Seeing as the new album will be called 'NEW', I am inviting you all to post your pictures to Instagram using the hashtag #whatsnewpaul anytime you see the word new on the street or in a magazine or wherever.  I look forward to seeing the most inventive ones that you send in. Cheers Paul."

Sheryl Crow goes country
Sheryl Crow lives in Nashville now, so it seems natural that she put out a country album.

"Feels Like Home" hit stores this week, and it features some song titles that definitely sound top 40 country-ready: "Waterproof Mascara," "Drinking" and "Shotgun" could be titles on Gretchen Wilson records.

The first line of "Shotgun" is "Drive it like it's stolen, park it like it's rented," which is apparently something her dad used to say. Hey, if it's a pickup truck, it's definitely country.

She was also encouraged to release it by guitar wiz Brad Paisley--who coincidentally appears on John Fogerty's newest album, as he tried to make a break into country territory.

The truth is, there's a fine line between pop and country these days, and this new album could definitely qualify for either category.
