James Murphy’s Score And Bowie Remix Included On While We’re Young Soundtrack Out Next Month

James Murphy scored Noah Baumbach's forthcoming film While We're Young, an undoubtedly romanticized illustration of what it's like to be a youth living in Brooklyn, starring Adam Driver (of course) and Amanda Seyfried (Why?).

Watch The Smashing Pumpkins & Die Antwoord’s Ninja Cover David Bowie

Billy Corgan has always shown an admirable commitment to random shit, but I don't think he's done anything quite this high on the "wait, what" scale since he dated Tila Tequila.

Watch The Previously Untold True Story Of David Bowie, Brian Eno, & Tony Visconti Recording “Warszawa”

Low is certainly one of David Bowie's very best albums, but when it comes to backstory, no other album compares. As covered in Hugo Wilcken's reverent 33 1/3 book, the thing was recorded when Bowie was at his creative peak and his mental/emotional bottom. Each track has its own amazing story, and among… More »

David Bowie & Mick Jagger’s “Dancing In The Street” Video Without The Music Is Pretty Great

If you haven't heard of the "musicless music video" series this might be the best introduction. Behold David Bowie and Mick Jagger's infamous "Dancing In The Street" video in which the music's replaced awkward sound effects.

Watch Janelle Monáe Cover David Bowie On Letterman

The World Cup starts today, and so it makes sense that Janelle Monáe was on Letterman last night, performing her Pepsi-sponsored, World Cup-themed cover of David Bowie's "Heroes."
