Keaton Simons has just released his new album, "Beautiful Pain". The album was co-produced by Mikal Blue (Colbie Caillat, One Republic) and mastered by Gavin Lurssen of Lurssen Mastering. The album features co-writes with friends and peers Jason Mraz, Jason Reeves, and Glen Phillips.
The L.A. Times says Simons is “a triple threat.” He captivates audiences with an authentic voice, compelling and soul-baring songs, and a true command of both acoustic and electric guitars in every genre.
Earlier this month Keaton premiered the visually gorgeous video for current single "Beautiful Pain." The video was directed by Nick Spanos and executive produced by long time friend, and star of the Showtime series Californication, David Duchovny.
"This song has tremendous personal meaning to me. I wanted to show the extraordinary side of real, everyday people, and illustrate that love is worth fighting for,"
I dig the song and the video concept. Hope you guys enjoy it!-DocFB
Diagnosis: Beautiful...pain or not....
KROQ in Los Angeles leaked the new Depeche Mode single "Heaven" early as both the song and video were supposed to be released on Friday. KROQ, a long-standing supporter of DM may have got permission to premiere the song early.
“Writing this album was incredibly daunting as I wanted the sound of this collection to be very modern," Gore said in press materials for the band's upcoming album, "Delta Machine." "I want people to feel good about listening to this record, to get some kind of peace. It’s just got something magical about it."
“With this release we’ve completely shifted our idea of how to create an album. When we hit a wall where we realize the album is beginning to sound too normal, we'll mess it up and really give it that organic Depeche Mode sound, frontman Dave Gahan said. “'Delta Machine' is no different, and I can't wait for all of our fans to hear it.”
The song was removed by soundcloud. Listen to "Heaven" from Delta Machine above by clicking on the link.
Delta Machine will be released on March 26th. For the full track listing along with more info, click on the continue reading button below.....
"Diamonds" has just been released by Rihanna and it is getting rave reviews already. It is off her new album which might be titled "7 Wonders" and is slated to drop in November.

"Never Gonna Let You Go" is the latest video by Esthero introducing us to Princess Furious directed by Sean Michael Turrell.
Esthero plays the mommy to Princess Furious who is...well...quite furious at Johnny and his blonde little toyfriend.
Esthero's a cappela at first is quite cool along with her ode to 50's lingerie later in the video. Although for some reason, we can't see a few drinks make Esthero fumble around a hallway.
Check out the video above and let us know what you think. Us? We DIG it!-DocFB
Jojo titled the video Pink is crazy. Maybe for the whore comment or maybe for her use of the "We're number 1" finger salute. She also does an irish jug. Hilarious!
The album is due September 18th and is titled "The Truth Above Love" and features her latest single "Blow Me (One Last Kiss) which is out now.-DocFB

This is VERY good news! Not only do we have upcoming albums from No Doubt, Green Day, and Pink on the way, Alicia Keys announced she is recording new material!
She posted this on AliciaKeys.com and talked about her growth not just as an artist, but as a woman;
Tamar's last CD "Sinner Or A Saint" was released via Interscope/Cherrytree a couple of years ago and...a few things happened. Let's just say that Tamar is HAPPY to be an independent artist. All she will say about "Sinner Or A Saint" right now is this;
“Sinner Or A Saint was an album that is real and true to me, both personally and artistically,”
Tamar is now at Columbia University studying political science and creative writing. She also has a new blog out as well.
"California" is a breezy tune with Tamar driving around parts of California and walking in the desert in flats but making sure she rocks the high heels in the bedroom. I like that version of California....you know, the open road and a beautifully talented girl in a swimming pool.
The California Track list consists of:
2. All Or Nothing
3. Good Times
4. Come Home (Walk The Line)
5. Feels So Good
Check out her site to find out how U can own the EP. Below is her version of "Apologize" by Onerepublic which garnered her much attention in the industry in the first place. Go on, get it Tamar!-DocFB
