Aaron Dessner is teasing new Big Red Machine music

The National‘s Aaron Dessner has taken to social media to tease that he’s been working on some new music under his Big Red Machine moniker.

It comes a week after The National guitarist co-wrote and produced 11 of the 16 songs on the new Taylor Swift album, ‘Folklore’, which is now one of the biggest selling albums of the year so far.

“5+ month studio bender continues,” he wrote on Instagram. “Thank you to everyone who has reached out about Folklore….so glad you’re enjoying it as much as I do. Still feels surreal to me.”

Dessner shared a list of tracks with “working titles” under the heading “Big Red Machine II (Sure Things).” The names of his collaborators appear to be crossed out.

“Profoundly grateful to have time and space to work and finish things,” he continued, “and so thankful for the many friends contributing to that music and this new @bigredmachineadjv music — everything feels related. I can’t wait to share it with you. (Our working titles will change! And sorry to be coy :)”

Big Red Machine started as a collaboration between Aaron Dessner and Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon in 2008, but later grew into a multi-artist collective. A self-titled album was released in 2018.

Earlier this year, Dessner and R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe shared the studio version of their collaborative single ‘No Time For Love Like Now’. 

Having originally shared a demo of the song with Stipe performing it from his home in lockdown back in March before performing the track on a number of talk shows, the duo have now shared the studio version and the video under Dessner’s Big Red Machine moniker.

Meanwhile, The National were forced to postpone their summer tour due to the coronavirus crisis.

Matt Berninger and co. were due to start their summer tour in Stockholm, Sweden on May 30, including stops in Belfast, Paris and Greece, before ending in Cooperstown, New York on August 1.

Slipknot’s Corey Taylor tells people to “stop whining and put your god damn mask on”

Slipknot’s Corey Taylor has sent a message to those complaining about having to wear a face mask during the coronavirus pandemic, telling them to “stop whining and put your god damn mask on.”

Countries including the UK, Australia, Vietnam, Mexico, Singapore and parts of the US have introduced face mask mandates to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

In an interview with Australia’s Triple M Rock, the Slipknot frontman was asked for his views on those who weren’t sticking to the face mask rules. “Stop whining and put your god damn mask on,” he began. “This isn’t an isolated incident. My country’s loaded with these dumbasses that think it is some sort of political standpoint or some sort of partisan garbage.

“And I’m just like, ‘Are you serious?’ Just because you haven’t had anyone in your life affected by it doesn’t mean that it’s not a real thing.”

Taylor continued on, comparing wearing a face mask to the masks he and his bandmates wear on stage. “I once had to wear a full head mask for eight hours while doing Slipknot press,” he said. “Eight hours straight – didn’t take it off, but these people are going to bitch and moan about wearing it for 10 minutes at the market? Get over yourselves.”

Meanwhile, Taylor will release his debut solo album ‘CMFT’ on October 2. The record, which was announced last week (July 29), will feature a mix of newly written songs and tracks that date back to his teens.

The Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman originally planned to release the album in 2021, but brought it forward after the coronavirus pandemic cancelled Slipknot’s 2020 touring plans.

Two songs from the record have been shared already – the Tech N9ne and Kid Bookie-featuring ‘CMFT Must Be Stopped’ and ‘Black Blue Eyes’.

Diplo joins Joji on hazy new summer anthem ‘Daylight’

Published

Joji and Diplo

Diplo has teamed up with Joji of Asian rap collective 88rising for new track, ‘Daylight’ – listen to it below.

Set to appear on Joji’s upcoming new album ‘Nectar’, the new record is a mid-tempo summer anthem that sets the half-Japanese, half-Australian former YouTube star’s vocals against Diplo’s hazy production.

“It might be nice for people to hear a song about daylight, especially when we don’t get as much of it as we used to,” Joji said of the track.

In the accompanying video – directed by Munachi Osegbu – Joji and Diplo act as struggling PAs on a ’90s music video shoot. The pair unintentionally derail the shoot of the young (at heart) pop divas by bumbling around the set.

Watch the video for ‘Daylight’ below.

‘Daylight’ is the fourth pre-release track from ‘Nectar’ and follows the release of ‘Sanctuary’, and Joji’s first 2020 single, ‘Run’. The album is due to arrive on September 25.

Earlier this year, Diplo shared some key tips on the best way to prevent contracting the coronavirus while travelling.

As the virus continues to spread, the Major Lazer producer made light of the epidemic, posting a tongue-in-cheek video to his Instagram captioned “travel tips.”

The video, soundtracked by Foxx’s ‘Wipe Me Down’, saw Diplo sat in first class on a plane wearing a face mask and rapidly wiping nearby surfaces with wet wipes. His friend, also sporting a mask, ran over with a wipe and disinfected Diplo. The words “Not today coronavirus” were written across the top of the video.
