There was a new Johnny Cash album released earlier this week. Here is a fantastic little video with a few artists thoughts on the legend that is Johnny Cash and their cover of one of the newly released songs. The Local Natives interpretation of the title track is super cool. Watch the video below and be sure to take the time to listen to “Out Among the Stars” the great new album from the late great Johnny Cash.
Mandy Lee’s powerful voice and catchy lyrics make “Reflections” one of the best songs of the year so far. I really love the beat. If you’re a fan of CHVRCHES this is definitely worth a listen.

For those wanting to know more about the series or those excited about the new film, check out the opening scene of the new film.
I was just talking with a friend of mine this past weekend about how it’s been far too long since we’ve heard anything new from Bright Eyes frontman, Conor Oberst. And then yesterday we got treated with a brand new song off his upcoming solo record, Upside Down Mountain. Oberst kicks off the first leg of his worldwide tour on May 8th ahead of the album release on the 20th. IHYEB favorites, Dawes will be accompanying Oberst on the tour as both the opening act and his backing band. The new song is called “Hundreds of Ways” and you can stream it below.
