John Nolan has a new album in the works, and it's all going to be funded through PledgeMusic. Don't know what PledgeMusic is or how it works? Neither did I, but it's pretty rad. Check out what John had to say about the site and what he has in the works for his upcoming solo record in our interview.
My last solo album came out almost 5 years ago now, and then Taking Back Sunday has put out 2 albums since then. A lot of what Iíve been working on has gone to Taking Back Sunday, but here and there Iíve had ideas for songs that Iíve put aside. In the past year there was a quick burst of stuff that came out after Taking Back Sundayís album that I was feeling like ďOh my gosh, here it isĒ,...

Zoe Keating writes about the problems YouTube's new music service (and the ensuing agreement they want everyone to sign) is causing for some musicians and artists on the service.
My Google Youtube rep contacted me the other day. They were nice and took time to explain everything clearly to me, but the message was firm: I have to decide. I need to sign on to the new Youtube music services agreement or I will have my Youtube channel blocked.

This new music service agreement covers my Content ID account and it includes mandatory participation in Youtubeís new subscription streaming service, called Music Key, along with all that participation entails.

MTV sat down to talk with Jake Karlen, also known as the kid on the cover of Fall Out Boy's American Beauty/American Psycho.
I didnít know the band at first, and then the photographer told me [the shoot was for] Fall Out Boy. I knew their name but not their music so well. After working with Pete [Wentz] and seeing how he works with the cover and all the details he wants from it I know the details are important to him, so I went and listened to their music, and I love it.

Another week has passed and I've got a couple things to share with you today. First up is a book of poetry that was just published by a long time AP.net reader, Scott Laudati, called Hawaiian Shirts in the Electric Chair -- a music video for one of the poems can be found in the replies. Thanks for reading the website for over 14 years Scott! Really appreciate it. The second is a video of Tommy Caldwell navigating Pitch 15 of The Dawn Wall on Yosemite's El Capitan. Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson did this climb last week and it's been called the most difficult climb ever completed. My hands got sweaty just watching the video. Hope everyone had a good week, and here's to the weekend!

Ben Folds posted a lengthy note on his Facebook page introducing his new album.
I donít recall ever being quite so excited about an album Iím making. Iíll let you decide if thatís a good thing or not. Itís just that we donít often get to make a record that weíve never heard before. I LOVE my band on this record - NYCís almost classical sextet, yMusic. Love 'em musically and personally. They are pushing me. Collectively and individually theyíve been on quite a few great recordings (Sufjan Stevens, Bjork, Dirty Projectors, Bon Iver, Blake Mills and lots of other stuff) since most of the group graduated Julliard nearly a decade ago. Then thereís their new cellist, Gabe who just got out of...

Bob Dylan's new album, Shadows in the Night, will be sent to 50,000 random AARP the Magazine subscribers. Mr. Dylan also was interviewed by the magazine -- his first in some three years.
Risky? Like walking across a field laced with land mines? Or working in a poison gas factory? Thereís nothing risky about making records," Dylan says. "Comparing me with Frank Sinatra? You must be joking. To be mentioned in the same breath as him must be some sort of high compliment. As far as touching him goes, nobody touches him. Not me or anyone else.
