New Reviews: John Mayer, Norah Jones and Leona Lewis

November 17th, 2009
In this week’s New Reviews, John Mayer takes a look at the war-torn landscape of relationships with Battle Studies, an album that finds the singer trying to balance both his serious and comedic sides. “He’s a tabloid fixture who wears his celebrity with a wink… But then Mayer steps into a studio, and the fun spigot claps shut,” Jody Rosen writes in his three-star review of Battle Studies. “It’s as if Mayer, burdened by his ...

In the Studio With Courtney Love: Exclusive Photos

November 17th, 2009
Photograph by Clay Patrick McBride for Rolling Stone Last week, Rolling Stone brought you highlights from our Courtney Love story in the November 26, 2009 issue (on stands now). We caught up with the Hole leader in the studio, where she revealed her long-in-the-works Nobody’s Daughter explores themes of greed, vengeance and feminism. “There’s a lot of maternal instinct on there, and probably my favorite lyric is: ‘Nobody’s daughter, she’s never was, she never will ...

A Who Song Played on “Monday Night Football,” But Will They Rock the Super Bowl?

November 17th, 2009
Photo: Kanaris/Getty During last night’s Monday Night Football game, just after the Baltimore Ravens intercepted a tipped Cleveland Browns pass for a touchdown in the third quarter, ESPN cunningly used the Who’s “My Generation” as the musical bed for the instant replay before fading to commercial. For fans of the NFL and Tommy, ESPN’s use of the Who was a not-so-subtle nod to unconfirmed reports that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band will ...

Video Roundup: Shakira, Rancid and Monsters of Folk

November 17th, 2009
Recent Rolling Stone cover star Shakira seems to be taking a page from her “Beautiful Liar” cohort Beyoncé in her new video for “Give It Up To Me,” executing some crisp choreography in a black leotard. But it gets weirder from there: after some fairly straightforward dancing and singing alongside Lil Wayne, Shakira transforms into a multi-armed deity, floating above the ground. Too weird for Beyoncé? We’d have said yes before checking out her latest ...

“The Oprah Effect”: Winfrey the “Holy Grail” for Album Sales

November 17th, 2009
Photo:Koch/DDP/GettyAs album sales continue to slide, the music industry keeps searching for ways to make record releases big events. There have been partnerships with big retailers (like Walmart’s exclusive on AC/DC’s Black Ice), major live events (like Jay-Z’s blitz before The Blueprint 3 dropped), and special fan contests (like the artwork scavenger hunt Pearl Jam hosted for Backspacer). But there’s one sure-fire way to guarantee an album’s success: get Oprah Winfrey’s stamp of approval. Michael Buble’s ...
