(photo via Instagram)

Gaga and Bennett are back! They've released a new track from forthcoming jazz album, Cheek to Cheek. This time the duo covers "I Can't Give You Anything But Love," a standard dating back to 1928 when it was sung by Adelaide Hall. Rufus Wainwright and Billie Holiday have tackled it in the past, but Lady Gaga is sure to bring a whole new audience to the classic. It is certainly a new sound from the pop diva, but she and Bennett are both in top form on the track.

Take a listen, AFTER THE JUMP...

The OXD Mirror: Celebrate Summer with Goldroom, Moon Boots, Satin Jackets, Poolside, and more



L.A.'s Goldroom (Josh Legg) stays true to form with his latest single, 'Till Sunrise.' Legg's lush production provides a glistening backdrop for Mammals' dreamy vocals, creating an almost perfect tune to enjoy these last few days of summer.

 In an unorthodox move, Legg also released the vocal stems for 'Till Sunrise' a few days before premiering the actual track, in an effort to induce even more creativity among remix producers. We're looking forward to hearing those different iterations, and thereby extending our summers, as well.

'Till Sunrise' sets the stage for today's playlist, which is chock-full of summery tunes. Listen AFTER THE JUMP...

Robyn and Röyksopp's 'Monument' Video is a Stunning, Hypnotic, 2014 Space Odyssey: WATCH


Robyn and Röyksopp exist in an otherworldly dimension in their new "Monument" video directed by Max Vitali and choreographed by Jefta Van Dinther which sees the trio on a lit up platter traveling through a dimensional, sometimes star-filled darkness.

Robyn calls the clip the "pretentious" representation of an "inner journey" into "the physicality of your body."

George Michael Says The Smiths are Reforming: VIDEO

(image true-to-you)

The Guardian caught up with George Michael over the weekend, with a rapid-fire question interview in which Michael handed off one-line quips on various topics such as his greatest fear (losing the ability to create music), his favorite word (go-on-then), his favorite book (impossible to answer) and how often he has sex (wouldn't you like to know).

MichaelBut it was the answer to his final question which stirred the loins of the music world, when the Guardian asked him if he could tell them a secret. Said Michael:

"The Smiths are reforming."

Whether George Michael knows something we don't know or is just messing with the hearts of those who hope to hear Morrissey's voice and Johnny Marr's guitar back together again (more likely) is anyone's guess, but it's certainly the most interesting thing he said in the interview.

Morrissey's personal website True To You announced over the weekend that "Three weeks after the release of Morrissey's World Peace Is None Of Your Business (#2 UK, #14 US), Capitol Records/Harvest have ended their relationship with Morrissey, as directed by label boss Steve Barnett. Morrissey is once again in search of a record label."

For his part, Morrissey answered the question of a reunion (once again) in January, saying:

"I don't know a single person who wants a Smiths reunion! But, no, there aren't any bands I like to see again because your memory of them is how they were in their prime or at their best or at their most desperate, and you look to them to be someone that they no longer are."

He also said he'd be retiring from music about now.

And, Gigwise notes, this is what Marr had to say about a reunion three months ago.

And have a listen to George Michael's most recent release from Symphonica, a cover of the standard "Feeling Good", AFTER THE JUMP...
