We kick things off this week with the new, CGI-filled video for "We, Myself & I" by Polaris Music Prize nominee Shad. The Canadian hip-hop star on the rise is on the short list for third album TSOL. Cross your fingers for the "Lucky 1," as the winner of the Polaris Music Prize will be announced tonight (September 20).
Up next is the new video from Neil Young, "Angry World." The track is filled with ambient vocal loops and fuzzed-out guitar, and is featured on his new album, Le Noise, which is scheduled to be released on September 28. Pop rockers Weezer stopped by The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to promote their recently released album, Hurley, and to perform new single "Memories." It's too bad that Rivers Cuomo's memories don't include song lyrics, watch as the frontman reads the lyrics from his arm for most of the first verse.
Kanye West could have a new hit on his hands with the studio version leak of uncensored Pusha T collaboration "Runaway." The track, which was performed live at the MTV VMAs, features electronic-style drums and some killer keys, and will be featured on Kanye's next album. In other hip-hop news, Lil Wayne has revealed the new video for "I Am Not a Human Being," from his soon to be released new record. Lil Wayne will be releasing a preview EP, called I Am Not A Human Being, for his upcoming LP, titled Tha Carter IV, which will be out on November 5 when he is released, from prison. Check out the video to see Lil Wayne's UV tattoos under a black light.
Last up, we've got reissues and remixes. The Dirty Projectors have released a stripped down, live version of "Temecula Sunrise" as part of their Bittle Orca reissue project. You can download the live track for free before they unleash the album on September 28. Finally, indie rockers the Morning Benders have released a mix EP titled Echomix which features a R&B-inspired cover of Paul McCartney's "Ram On," from his 1971 album, Ram.
