Maroon 5 Reveals Track List and Cover for New Album "V"

Maroon 5 has revealed the album artwork and the track listing for their fifth album, V, which is the Roman numeral for five.  The album is due September 2.

Phillip Phillips Claims Record Label Said If He Recorded "Home," They'd Leave Him Alone

Phillip Phillips has gone on record as saying initially, he didn't like his debut single "Home," which has become the best-selling single ever released by an American Idol alum.  Now, he claims his record label essentially offered him a musical bribe to cut that single. According to the Virginian-Pilot, Phillip claims that when he was making his debut album The World from the Side of the Moon, his record label offered him a deal: if he would only cut the folk-rock flavored songs "Home" and "Gone Gone Gone," he could do whatever he wanted with the rest of the album. …

Imagine Dragons' Singer Says Second Album Will Be as Eclectic as Their First

In between concert dates, Imagine Dragons has been working on their second album in their hometown of Las Vegas, and singer Dan Reynolds says they've been "having a lot of fun."  He also says fans can expect a mix of sounds and styles -- just like on their best-selling 2012 debut, Night Visions -- because they don't want to write "themselves into a box." The hit singles from Night Visions -- "It's Time," "Demons," "Radioactive" and "On Top of the World" -- all sounded very different from one another; at times, it was hard to believe all those songs were…

English Professor Gives Taylor Swift's "Wall Street Journal" Op-Ed a B-Minus

Taylor Swift made waves not long ago by penning an op-ed piece for the Wall Street Journal about the future of the music business.  Most people focused on Taylor's optimism about the industry, but now, her actual writing ability has been put under a microscope. Entertainment Weekly invited Margo Mifflin, a professor of English at the City University of New York, to "grade" Taylor's essay and point out any flaws.  Professor Mifflin's opinion?  "She has a strong, effervescent writing style," she told the magazine. "But the piece has serious focus problems. It skids all over the place."  She gives Taylor…
