Dolly Parton & Kelly Clarkson


Dolly Parton has recorded a new version of her 1980 single ‘9 to 5’ with Kelly Clarkson. Just in case you ever wanted to know what Dolly Parton would sound like autotuned.

Roddy Ricch has released new single ‘Ghetto Superstar’, featuring G Herbo and Doe Boy.

Tom Odell will release new album ‘Best Day Of My Life’ on 28 Oct. “One year ago, almost exactly to the day, I set myself the challenge to write and record an entire album using only my voice and my piano with absolutely nothing else”, he says. “I found myself digging deeper than I ever have before both with my words and piano playing. I am so proud of the way this record has turned out and I really cannot wait for you all to hear it”. Here’s new single ‘Smiling All The Way Back Home’.

Phoenix will release new album ‘Alpha Zulu’ on 4 Nov. The band have shared new single ‘Tonight’, featuring Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig.

Alter Bridge have released new single ‘Sin After Sin’. New album ‘Pawns & Kings’ is out on 14 Oct.

Lamb Of God have released new single ‘Grayscale’, taken from their new album ‘Omens’, which is out on 7 Oct. “’Grayscale’ has just a smack you in the face, bit of hardcore feel to it”, says guitarist Willie Adler. “We had basically finished writing the record and I wrote this song thinking it won’t necessarily be a Lamb song. I sent it to Josh Wilbur, our producer, to check out and he responded with ‘Perfect, this is the last song we need for the record!'”

The Big Pink have released new single ‘Safe And Sound’. “I moved to LA to find my record and I found it, but at a price”, says frontman Robbie Furze of the inspiration for the song. “I was chased by every temptation known to mankind. I was promised love. I was promised wealth. I was promised the world. Drugs, women, stardom, all the cliches hounding me and biting at my heels. I got caught up in it. I was strung out and I got lost. I can now put my hands up and admit that. For a while I lost my wife. I lost my family and friends and mostly, I lost my mind”.

Former Murderdolls frontman Wednesday 13 has released ‘Insides Out’, the latest single from his upcoming new album ‘Horrifier’, which is out on 7 Oct.

Darkthrone will release new album ‘Astral Fortress’ on 28 Oct. Here’s Fenriz with an update.

Launched in 1980, FONO was Europe’s first independent label trade association.
