Get ready for a trip back to 16. Seven years and thousands of tears since their last album was released, Chris Carrabba’s Dashboard Confessional has released a new song. And, just in case you’re wondering, “May” sounds like the songs that made so many millennials—including Taylor Swift—such big fans during the band's early-2000s emo glory days.
The former Further Seems Forever frontman told EW that he’s been working on some new songs, and a new Dashboard Confessional album may even be in the works:
I don’t have any idea of a release date or a worry about one for that matter. But I’m really excited to be doing it because I don’t think it’s ever felt this much like the beginning again.
This is the week you’ve all been waiting for. On the new podcast, we sit down for an extended interview with DC Talk’s Kevin Max, hear songs from his new album “Playing Games with the Shadow,” hear about what it’s like to be a part of Christian music’s biggest band and learn the story behind the band’s upcoming cruise reunion. The gang also tries to figure out Vince Vaughn’s extremely awkward Liberty University commencement “speech,” we discuss the dangers of binge watching and much, much more. Don’t miss this one.

We finally have a quality video of The Lone Bellow and The Blind Boys of Alabama performing together at the Eaux Claires Music Festival last year, which released this week in the lead up to this summer’s festival.
The lyrics to the soulful ballad from Then Came the Morning—which was produced by The National's Aaron Dessner—read like a spiritual hymn: Watch over us / Watch over us / When my hands are tired / When my strength is gone
Last spring, the band talked to RELEVANT about recording the album that focuses on finding beauty in everyday life,“I think the real challenge in making something worthwhile is in the celebration of the mundane and finding beauty in the 24-hour period of a day.”
Enjoy the most soulful 4-minutes of your day. Discuss
Coldplay has released a new video for their single “Up&Up”, and unlike the goofy dance party video for “Adventure of a Lifetime” starring CGI silverback gorillas, this one is actually really cool. Seriously, this is some gorgeous surrealist filmmaking.
Some of the imagery is a little trippy, but it’s one of the more artistic and gripping videos to the Coldplay catalogue. Take four minutes, and enjoy the video that works perfectly for a song off an album called Head Full of Dreams. Discuss
Justin Timberlake has released the official video for new single “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” and let’s be honest here, it’s a lot of fun. The concept is really just a bunch of random people dancing down grocery store aisles, beside hotel pools, in front of auto garages, in diners and other everyday locations, but it works.
Despite the brief troll cameo (yes, the song was written for a new animated movie about troll dolls), the simple video captures the energy that “Happy” did a few years ago: Sure, it’s a little cheesy, but it’s pretty hard not to sing along. Discuss
