Excellent!

Mandy Moore recently revealed that she is starting to think about her next record, and, as was the case with her previous work, Amanda Leigh, she would once again like her husband, Ryan Adams, to collaborate with her on some new material!

She explains:

"I don't know about a duet. But I would love to work with him on the next record. I'm sure he'll be involved in some way. We work well together. I'm listening to McCartney right now and a lot of Gram Parsons. My hubby, too. It's hard to ignore that influence in the house."

Nice!

We LOVE how she is constantly trying to develop her sound, and try out new things! She's really taken what started as a pretty paint-by-numbers pop career and made it her own, and we really respect her for that!

Keep up the good work, bb! We're looking forward to what you've got in store for our ears!

Thoughts??

Joan Baez Falls From Tree House, Injured!

Filed under: Music MinuteInjury

Joan Baez Falls From Tree House

Folksinging legend Joan Baez took a tumble off of a tree house built behind her house on Wednesday. She was quickly taken to the emergency room where they determined that she had only sustained minor injuries.

A spokeswoman said Baez was "resting comfortably" Thursday.

"I sleep in a tree all summer long," said Baez "I like to see the sky and the stars. I climb up on a ladder, with ropes and things. The birds are right there in the morning. Sometimes they're flying so close to my head I can feel the wind. Those things are heaven to me."

We hope her injuries don’t last long. That birds will be lonely without her!

Listen To This: Love x 3

Filed under: Listen To ThisJason MrazHope

So nice to hear from her again!

We posted about Hope way back in December of 2007 in this entry, where we shared her exquisite song Who Am I To Say, which reminded us of Eva Cassidy.

Well, she's back, signed to a major label, collaborating with someone we think is awesome and just as lovely as ever!

Staying true to her "easy listening" ways, Hope is back with a sweet new song - featuring Jason Mraz - that reminds us a lot of Colbie Callait.

Check out Hope's Love Love Love (above).

ASSlee Is Not Abandoning Music Career! Coming Back As A "Folk" Artist!

Filed under: Music MinuteAshlee Simpson

wenn2934757jb.jpg

ASSlee Simpson has been keeping a pretty low-profile since she got her ass fired from Melrose Place, and we've been wondering what exactly her next inspired career move would be!

Luckily, we will not have to speculate anymore, because gurlfriend is dusting off that 'music' career she left for dead a few years back and trying her hand at - GET THIS - a folk album!

Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Check out this little snippet from Paper Magazine:

Do you know the direction of the forthcoming record?
I do, I do. I see the light. But I'm definitely not spilling the beans just yet. It's definitely a bit folky.

Way more folky than "Pieces of Me"?
It had that feel, but I'm really going for it this time!

Well, "LaLa" and "Outta My Head" were pretty major.
Well, I'm always a kooky person, so you're not going to lose that. But for me, there's an era of music that I miss and I wanna make that kind of music. The songs that we need to hear.

Yes, yes, and YES!

This is hilariously wonderful and bad news!

And just so we're clear, bb. You understand that folk usually means just you and a guitar. That shiz is harder to fake perfect. We hope you know that!

What do U think?? Are U excited for a brand new musical endeavor from Ashlee??
