5. Sass Jordan’s S.U.N. – I’m The One

She’s teamed up with songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Brian Tichy (Billy Idol/Foreigner/Ozzy Osbourne/Whitesnake) to record an album of self-proclaimed “anthemic rock songs” under the moniker S.U.N. (The name appears to stand for Something Unto Nothing, by the way.)mCompleting the S.U.N. experience is bassist Michael Devin (Whitesnake, Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience, Kenny Wayne Shepherd) and drummer Tommy Stewart (Godsmack, Lo Pro, Everclear, Fuel).
6. Clutch – Earth Rocker
Clutch have released the title track from highly-anticipated upcoming album Earth Rocker. Their highly anticipated tenth album hits shelves in March and they’ll tour across the US and Europe in the coming months. Classic Rock recently said of Clutch’s live show: “They’ve proved themselves to be the beating heart of 21st-century rock’n’roll. Out of step with the times but by no means retro, their supremacy is something to be very smug about indeed.”
7. Dege Legg – Too Old To Die Young
The song has been hand-chosen by Quentin Tarantino for the soundtrack of his new film Django Unchained. Too Old To Die Young comes from Legg’s 2010 solo album Folk Songs Of The American Longhair – and Legg is honoured that Tarantino would pick it. “I’m absolutely a fan of Tarantino,” Legg said. “Between him and Martin Scorsese, they’re the most well-known directors for having exquisite taste in great music and being masters of pairing incredible music scenes with great song choices. Being in that category, it’s mind-blowing.”
8. Dan Reed – I’m The One
Dan Reed has released a video for his track Only Love. It’s taken from the Dan Reed Band’s new album Signal Fire – available for pre-order via their Pledge Music page.
9. Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds – We No Who U R Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have released a video for their single We No Who U R, from upcoming album Push The Sky Away.
