What's New(s)?

"Is This Happiness"- Ultraviolence bonus track
Lana Del Rey's sophomore LP Ultraviolence is set to drop next Tuesday and the melodramatic pop star has already released plenty of music in the run-up to the album. That generous trend continued today with "Is This Happiness", bleary-eyed romance that will appear as a bonus track on the iTunes edition of the record. Backed by a virtually inaudible piano, Del Rey wonders aloud what "happiness" really is in a faint whisper that's ready to collapse at any moment. If this is what's been left off the album, it's hard to imagine the quality of what made it on to Ultraviolence.

(As previously mentioned, Ultraviolence is out 6/17 on Interscope.)

Download Danny Brown collaborator ZelooperZ's Help album

Prior to today's release of Help, Detroit native ZelooperZ's biggest claim to fame was appearing on Danny Brown's Old, one of last year's stand out rap records. Whatever snarling, verbal contortions ZelooperZ's hinted at on his effort with Brown and A$AP Rocky is fully realized over Help's unwieldy 17 tracks. Brown stops by twice near the album's end, but even he can't completely put out the firebreathing ZelooperZ's is doing here. It's a thoroughly enjoyable listen and one that deserves to be heard.

(You can download Help here and view the video for spastic single "Plateau" below.)
