Amythyst Kiah Releases Haunting Cover of Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’




Amythyst Kiah continues to show the range of her ability and influences with a solo acoustic cover of Joy Division’s post-punk classic “Love Will Tear Us Apart” that was released Friday. It’s the Tennessee artist’s latest release since putting out a Moby remix of her hit “Black Myself” in 2021.

The nervy, danceable rhythm of Joy Division’s original recording is nowhere to be found here — instead, Kiah re-creates the classic bass guitar melody as part of her acoustic guitar accompaniment. As a singer, Kiah is worlds apart from the dark tone of Ian Curtis, belting each line with conviction and adding some of her own embellishments to deepen the anguished feeling of loss.

“‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ is the tragedy of knowing that the spark is gone forever,” Kiah said in a statement. “The weight of helplessness bearing down, the feeling of being alone in the presence of a partner that is emotionally and mentally miles away and is never coming back. Here’s to taking a sad song and making it sadder.”

Kiah released her Rounder Records debut Wary + Strange in 2021 and it landed on Rolling Stone’s list of Best Country and Americana Albums. In early February, she’s set to perform at Brandi Carlile’s Girls Just Wanna Weekend in Riviera Maya, Mexico, alongside Sheryl Crow, Indigo Girls, and Yola.

R&B singer DaniLeigh and her 5-month-old baby girl she shares with Dababy, tested positive for Covid. DaniLeigh took to Twitter this morning with the announcement and warning to others to stay protected from the virus.

“My baby and I have COVID we’re ok and will be ok … appreciate prayers stay masked up and inside y’all..” The “Easy” singer tweeted.

My baby and I have COVID 😔 we’re ok and will be ok … appreciate prayers 🙏🏽 stay masked up and inside y’all..

— Danileigh (@DaniLeigh) January 17, 2022

The 26-year-old singer welcomed her first baby, a lil bebe girl back in August of last year. She shares the child with Charlotte rapper DaBaby, making him a dad to four.

This news follows reports of assault charges that were filed on DaniLeigh when DaBaby accused the singer of striking him. An altercation that took place at the “Suge” rappers NC home surfaced online and the police got involved.

No word if DaniLeigh and her baby were exposed to the Omicron variant or not. The Omicron variant is highly transmissible but less severe than other variants. We hope they get well soon.

Cloud Cult Preview New Album With ‘One Way Out of a Hole’




Cloud Cult has previewed their upcoming album, Metamorphosis, with its first single, “One Way Out of a Hole.” The song is accompanied by a music video directed by Jeff D. Johnson.

“Although we began writing this song before the pandemic, we performed it along with some other new songs as part of a live-streaming concert during the deep of the COVID shutdown, and the response from the audience on this song, in particular, was unusually empathic,” frontman Craig Minowa said in a statement. “So many people have been through difficult times in the last couple of years, and this song is for all of us who maybe feel a little lost and need a little comfort in remembering that we’re not alone. We’re all in this together.”

Metamorphosis, which follows 2018’s The Seeker album and feature film, was written following the death of Minowa’s father and touches on the themes of addiction, suicide, and parenting during a global pandemic. Minowa recorded the songs in an old Amish cabin he converted to a recording studio, and additional tracking for Metamorphosis was completed at Hive studio with engineer and longtime friend Brian Joseph.

To support the album, Cloud Cult will embark on a U.S. tour from May through August. The band will also perform with the Minnesota Orchestra and conductor Sarah Hicks on March 31, and April 1 and 2.

Metamorphosis is available for pre-order here.

Amber Rose Apologizes to Kim Kardashian and Her Sisters for “Immature” Tweet




Kanye “Ye” West SPOTTED at Daughter Chicago’s Birthday Party

Social media posts never ever go away, like ever.

As Kanye “Ye” West continues to make headlines for his relationships, one old tweet from his ex Amber Rose is going viral. Back in 2015, the model replied to an unknown tweet writing, “@kanyewest I’ll leave that up to the Kartrashians to humiliate u when they’re done with u.”

But as the post resurfaced over the weekend, Amber expressed regret over the message and even apologized to Kim Kardashian and her sisters.

“Man f–k that old ass tweet,” she wrote on Instagram Stories. “I never got an apology for his ‘30 showers’ comment but f–k it. I started my Slutwalk and helped millions of women around the world stand up for themselves against slut shaming so something amazing came out of it.”

Amber added, “Kim nor her sisters deserved that tweet and y’all shouldn’t co-sign that either. S–t was old and immature af of me to involve the KarDASHians in the mess HE made.”

Back in February 2015, Ye appeared on The Breakfast Club where he made headlines for comments about his ex.

“It’s very hard for a woman to want to be with someone that’s with Amber Rose,” he said before adding, “I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim.”

He supplemented his comments with a quick apology and added, “I just want to be respectful.” 

Ultimately, Amber has completely moved on from her relationship with Ye and continues to raise two sons including 8-year-old Sebastian with ex Wiz Khalifa. She’s also co-parenting 2-year-old Slash with ex Alexander Edwards.

“Moving forward…Learn from my mistakes,” Amber said on Jan. 16. “We all have kids and family life is hard enough right now for a lot of ppl. I just wanna spread love and positivity.”
