The mixtape contains remixes of tracks from Stevens' five-disc Christmas box set Silver & Gold.
Paul McCartney surprised and delighted fans when he recently performed an original song with the surviving members of Nirvana; now you can give the track "Cut Me Some Slack" a listen with the studio version being released online, as well as check out the song live on SNL and at the recent Superstorm Sandy benefit. Also, the Vancouver-based Humans have debuted their new video for the song "Possession" from their Traps EP.
