    Written and produced with Mirwais Ahmadzai with whom she also collaborated on her multi-platinum 2000 album Music, Madonna's resonant and revealing 2003 release American Life is the ninth overall studio album from the enduring music icon.

In addition to the singles American Life, Hollywood, and Love Profusion, the album also features the smash hit Die Another Day, the theme song from the James Bond film of the same name which received two Grammy nominations for 'Best Short Form Music Video' and 'Best Dance Recording.'

    Life And Death of An American Fourtracker

    In ten short years, John Vanderslice's musical legacy already leaves listeners with seven critically-acclaimed and carefully crafted albums. JV's meticulous consideration to color, warmth, and depth of sound (his all-analog recording studio, Tiny Telephone, contributing additionally as an instrument) as well as his sophisticated narrative lyrical content have secured his place in the canon of great American songwriters. As much as JV's albums are for those who love great melodies and words into which to sink their teeth, they are also for audiophiles.

    American Soft

    Staples wrote portions of American Soft while squatting in his abandoned childhood home, a Pensacola, FL bungalow empty save for an old piano. "I slept on a Coleman cot for two months. The yard was overgrown up to my waist," Staples remembers. "The neighbor lady across the street used to babysit me. I ran into her one day and she didn't even recognize me. I hadn't seen her in 15 years."American Soft's musical ideas are at once diverse and cohesive, the lyrics both direct and lushly impressionistic. Staples' songs are, in the tradition of the best songwriters, fantastically economical. No moment is wasted, no idea indulged beyond necessity. Instrumental breaks occur but don't linger, serving their purpose and slipping quickly back into verses. American Soft features only a single traditional bridge, on the straight-ahead almost-rocker "Needle Park," which finishes with a short dual-guitar explosion, an explosion which ends suddenly, as suddenly as it began, a fleeting moment leaves us wanting more, always more, in the best way. Chris Staples has devoted the whole of his life to fostering that illusive magic, to passing it on, to giving and giving 'til it's all gone. Fortunately for us, he's only just begun.

    American Love

    Jake Owen's fifth studio LP is new territory for the singer who's known for lighthearted beach and party tunes, and he feels really good about that. After the release of "Real Life" (which was also around the time his divorce was announced), Owen started over with new songs - and he is not releasing the material he originally planned on.
    "I was at a different place when I was making that record," he tells EW of ditching the material. "I was still married, and all of the sudden that ended, and I had to find a way to feel good again.


    "I started down that path and then I realized that, for me, making music is as about feeling good as the listeners that gets to hear it," he says. "I have to make an album that I enjoy singing every night."


    The album is about love. But don't expect every track to be a gushy love song. It turns out Jake Owen enjoys singing about love on tour: "I kept noticing this reoccurring theme. The word kept appearing, but it was said in such different ways. I'm really proud that I got to encompass how love can be felt different ways but still remain the same, if that makes sense."


    His vocals will be on full display for American Love. Though he's not entirely walking away from the ultra-cool speak-singing he's known for, Owen wants to really show country fans he can sing. "Sometimes my voice gets hidden," he admits. "People don't even have the opportunity to know that I love to sing."
    The album will street July 29, and Owen reveals that he listens to it in his car. "It's been a long time since I made a record that I put on in my car and listen to on my own - but I can't stop. It makes me happy, and I know how much work I put into it."


    Included in the album is a collaboration with Chris Stapleton. He helped write "If He Ain't Gonna Love You," and Stapleton also sings backup. "And it sounds so good," Owen tells Taste of Country Nights host Sam Alex. "He sounds unbelievable on it, so I'm so excited."

    American Teen

    Khalid has been surrounded by music his entire life. He grew up in a military family, his mother is a singer with the Army and he was introduced to music at an early age. Khalid spent most of his childhood in Germany before moving to Watertown, NY for High School. The summer going into his senior year of High School, Khalid's family was ordered to relocate to El Paso, TX. By 18-years-old, Khalid, who is classically vocal trained, had drawn on his experiences with moving often and the unique experience of growing up having lived in two continents and parlayed them into the creation of his viral smash, "Location" which helped him to land a major label deal with Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records. Khalid released "Location" before his high school graduation and it garnered over 1.52 million plays in less than two months, along with critical praise from music tastemakers such as Pigeons & Planes, Earmilk, and more.

    All American Made (Pre-Order)

    A lot can change in a year: markets boom and bust, trends come and go, presidents
    get elected. In 2015, Margo Price was a country underdog just trying to keep
    enough gas in the tank to get to the next gig, but by the end of 2016, she was one
    of the genre's most celebrated new artists and a ubiquitous presence on late night
    television and at major festivals around the world.


    It's the kind of year most musicians can only dream of, and the arrival of Price's
    spectacular sophomore album, "All American Made," proves that she hasn't taken a
    moment of it for granted. Delivering on the promise of her debut and then some, the
    record finds Price planting her flag firmly in the soil as a songwriter who's here for
    the long haul, one with the chops to hang with the greats she so often finds herself
    sharing stages with these days.


    A prolific writer with a knack for candid self-reflection, Price has never had to look
    too far for inspiration, and on 'All American Made,' she and her songwriting partner/
    husband, Jeremy Ivey, continue to depict the trials of everyday life with unflinching
    honesty, painting poetically plainspoken portraits of men and women just trying to
    get by.


    Highs and lows, long nights and hard days, wild women and cocaine cowboys,
    politics and sexism, it's all in there, singularly filtered through Price's wry, no-bullshit
    perspective. Throughout the album, her contemporary take on classic sounds is at
    once familiar and daring, an infectious blend of Nashville country, Memphis soul,
    and Texas twang that tips its cap to everyone from Waylon and Willie (who makes
    a guest appearance) to Loretta and Dolly, all while flipping a middle finger to the
    cookie-cutter pop that dominates modern country radio. Rich with swirling pedal
    steel, honky-tonk rhythms, and Price's stop-you-in-your-tracks vocals, 'All American
    Made' is deeply reverent of tradition even as it challenges conventions, a nuanced
    exploration of conflicted emotions for our deeply conflicted times.

    American Beauty (On Sale)

    The Most American Folk-Rock Ever Made: Indelible Harmonies, Spare Playing, and Gorgeous Textures Surround Masterfully Crafted Songs


    Close Your Eyes As the Dead Serenade You in Your Room: MoFi Edition of American Beauty Epitomizes Realistic Space, Vocals, Instrumentation, and Ambience


    Ranked #261 on Rolling Stone's List of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time: Includes "Truckin'," "Sugar Magnolia," "Friend of the Devil," "Ripple"


    American Beauty is the most perfectly realized, superbly played, and openly natural folk-rock record ever released. They don't make albums like this anymore, but thankfully, Mobile Fidelity's extraordinary 180g 45RPM 2LP set allows you to experience this 1970 masterpiece with unrivaled intimacy, realism, detail, and perspective. The Dead might as well be sitting on a Persian carpet right in your living room.


    The pinnacle of the Dead's studio output, American Beauty lives up to its name-as well as that of the "American Reality" ambigram on the iconic cover. Airy vocal harmonies blow like fresh breezes. Strummed acoustic guitars amicably intermingle with plaintive percussive beats. Warmth, relaxation, and poignancy envelop the performances and create sensations of bliss, peace, and honesty. Songs flower with majestic melodies and emotionally direct lyrics. It's a rare album that invites and makes you feel, restores one's faith, and renews one's appreciation for all life offers.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g LP at RTI, this deluxe analog set possesses seemingly limitless dynamics, reference-grade presence, and expansive soundstages. The seamless, effortless integration of the group's vocals has always been a high point of American Beauty, and when you hear it here, you'll want every record you own to sound half as good. Every member's distinctive singing resounds with tube-like clarity; the intended expressionism is as plain as day. Instruments, too, resonate in glorious Technicolor. The supple tension of Phil Lesh's bass lines, charismatic timbres of Jerry Garcia's pedal-steel fills, and interwoven dialogue between the pianos and percussion are rendered with lifelike scale and tone.


    Made just months after its companion release, Workingman's Dead, the San Francisco legends' second 1970 masterpiece furthers the former work's close-knit relationship between country and folk while adding extra rock and bluegrass currents. Understated amplified passages, graceful melodies, layered singing, and old-time string flavors-including mandolin work from masterful guest David Grisman-bestow the material with easygoing, comfortable vibes. Again taking advantage of the best songwriting of Robert Hunter's career, the Dead turns in its most collective studio performance, with every individual contributing equally and focusing on nothing but the songs at hand.


    Indeed, Garcia doesn't even indulge in a single guitar solo on the record. A majority of fare lacks any significant instrumental breaks. The Dead recorded the foundations (drums, bass, acoustic guitars) of nearly every track live, which helps explain why American Beauty sounds so powerfully rich and clear. Coupled with the band's personal reflections of the circumstances surrounding them-Bob Weir's parents had died, Garcia's mother and Lesh's father were in the process of passing, Ron "Pigpen" McKernan's health was in decline-these characteristics combined to yield a purity of heart that exceeds that managed by Dead peers (and roots revivalist leaders) The Band and Bob Dylan.


    From Garcia's breathtaking gospel-laden homage to his mother ("Brokedown Palace") to Lesh's healing salve in the form of the groove-based "Box of Rain," from Weir's jaunty and free-wheeling summer escape "Sugar Magnolia" to McKernan's eloquently simple homespun plea "Operator," all the way to the closing autobiographical anthem "Truckin'," American Beauty feels like the warm, spirit-infusing embrace of a loved one after a long journey away. Welcome home.

    This Is The Life

    They told me all is fair in love and war, so I killed the one I've been fighting for.


    So went the process for Hunter Morris after the dissolution of his prior band Gift Horse. A professional fly fishing guide by trade, he spent a year on the trout streams of north Georgia literally and figuratively far away from the music scene in his home of Athens, GA. This time of reflection produced the songs that would become Blue Blood. But it was the process of reinvention that provided the inspiration for these songs long before there were finished lyrics, structures, and arrangements.


    Blue Blood began as a new solo project for Morris, but through the process of making demos in solitude and trying to find a new voice for his songs, what emerged was a collection of songs worthy of full band, psychedelic pop treatment. And Morris knew just the person for the job. He sent some of the songs to Hank Sullivant, who fronts Kuroma, was a founding member of The Whigs, and is currently the guitarist for MGMT, and who had previously produced the Gift Horse LP "Mountain of Youth". After hearing Morris' demos, Sullivant immediately assumed a more involved producer/instrumentalist role and the studio version of Blue Blood became a collaboration between the two. Morris and Sullivant recruited J.J. Bower (Dead Confederate, Battle Tapes) to play the drums, as well as keyboardist Dave Spivey, and they recently completed what will be the debut Blue Blood LP "This Is The Life", which will be released in October of 2014 on This Is American Music.


    The album was definitely the foundation upon which Blue Blood was built, as Morris and Sullivant essentially completed recording it before Blue Blood ever played a live show. However, it is the live lineup of Blue Blood that has brought the songs into their own. Morris says that having the songs recorded prior to forming a band to play them made the learning process much more efficient. But it's what each member brings of their own playing style and personality that give the songs an added depth in the live setting.

    Abandon All Life

    Nails, tyrants of the American underground, have triumphantly completed their second full-length Abandon All Life. Recorded at Godcity with Kurt Ballou (Converge) and mastered by Brad Boatright (From Ashes Rise), these ten tracks of barbaric rage have no resemblance to the laughable, retro party metal that passes as extreme music in today's world. Instead, Nails carpet bombs the listener with their horrifying brand of death/grind/hardcore chaos; flawlessly blending shades of Suffocation, early Nasum, and Celtic Frost with their own sadistic aggression. With profound hatred, the howling war cry of Abandon All Life shows Nails as a band without equal in their class.

    Life Is Good

    The social and political awareness that drives Flogging Molly's music is never more prominent than in their upcoming new release LIFE IS GOOD - a strikingly powerful album and it arrives at a strikingly key time. The sixth studio album by the renowned Celtic-punk rockers now in their 20th year is mature, well crafted, equally polished and almost aggressively topical. It is filled with rousing songs that are timeless in their sentiment, but directly related to today's most pressing concerns: Politics, the economy, unemployment, planned boomtowns gone bust, immigration policies gone awry, and much more.


    For singer and lyricist Dave King, it may be the lyrical couplet contained within the surging "Reptiles (We Woke Up") that points toward the album's central theme. "We woke up," sings King, "And we won't fall back asleep."


    "The thing is, there are things changing," says King. "That's why I wrote that line, 'Like reptiles, we'll all soon be dust someday.' It's quite scary, especially for somebody who has children these days--bringing up family in this environment of who's welcome and who's not welcome. I'm talking about the cultures in America and the UK--especially American immigration.


    Life Is Good thus serves as a wake-up call to those who have simply stood by while far-reaching political decisions were made that had a serious impact on them. And, significantly, it also serves as notice that the time for action is now.


    And people are indeed taking action, adds King, which is a crucial point.


    "I think especially with things like government--I think we all tend to fall asleep a little bit when it comes to other people that are making decisions for you. I think we should be the ones influencing the government to make these decisions. It's a great thing that we're now taking to the streets again. And it's a positive thing."


    Imagery abounds on Life Is Good, and one of the most memorable images might be found in "Adamstown," the saga of a planned community west of Dublin that came to a halt in mid-construction a decade ago when the Irish economy crashed--and left little more than a ghost town in its place.


    "It had a huge negative connotation to it," King says of the eerie, unfinished settlement. "But now it's starting to turn again, people are starting to move there, businesses are starting to open, and there is hope."


    Thematically, hope and inspiration are a major part of "The Hand of John L. Sullivan," a rollicking track about the legendary "Boston Strong Boy" who was the first ever heavyweight champion of gloved boxing from 1882-1892. Sullivan was a hero to many, and his story has a cultural significance that fits squarely within the story Flogging Molly want to tell with Life Is Good.


    "He came from an immigrant family to Boston, and they brought their family over to try to make the best possible world for them," says King. "We live in an environment right now where that doesn't seem to be what should be allowed to happen, you know?


    Recorded in Ireland and produced by multiple Grammy Award-winner Joe Chiccarelli (U2, the White Stripes, Beck), Life Is Good is by any measure a formidable return from Flogging Molly, an assessment with which Dave King fully agrees.


    "It's been a tough few years for a lot of us in the band. Dennis (Casey, guitarist) lost his dad, I lost my mother, and there have been certain issues, pertaining to sentiment, in a lot of the songs. But we just try to do the best we can. We've always had fun getting together and coming up with the new songs, and it's still that way.


    Here we see what's uniquely distinctive about Life is Good, as the gravity and weight of these themes never overshadow the sheer fun and exuberance felt in each song. For the message is delivered and built on the backs of boisterous and barreling live touring.


    "We're known for our live shows," says Dave King. Writing albums has always been a vehicle for us -- it's been a means to get people onto the dance floor. And that's kind of the way we've always approached it, no matter what."


    "The one thing we are is a positive band," adds Dave King. "When people come and see our shows, it's a celebration--of life, of the good and of the bad. And we have to take the good and the bad for it to be a life."

    African High Life

    This is a very enjoyable if not essential album of traditional African highlife music set to dance tempos. Fans of Count Ossie (or other Pan-African musics that predate an outright American R&B influence) should know what to expect here. In other words, it doesn't sound as modern as Fela Kuti, so it won't supply the kinds of grooves expected on most dancefloors. This is a more traditional music and, despite its Blue Note affiliation, it should be appreciated on its own terms.

    Language Of Life

    The Language of Life is the fifth album by English electronic duo Everything but the Girl, released in 1990.


    Tommy LiPuma had previously worked with artists like Miles Davis, Horace Silver, Randy Newman, and George Benson and had contributed production to Aztec Camera's Love album in 1987. He had expressed an interest in producing Everything but the Girl and invited Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt to New York and LA.


    Song arrangements were written by Larry Williams and Jerry Hey. The band LiPuma put together included Omar Hakim on drums, John Patitucci on bass and Larry Williams on keyboards. Ben Watt played guitar and piano, as well as doing some singing. Tracey Thorn sang only. LiPuma produced, in Thorn's words, a fully realised, immaculately performed and produced modern American Soul-Pop record.

    A Permeable Life

    Singer-songwriter Carrie Newcomer is releasing her twelfth
    studio recording this spring, A Permeable Life, produced and
    engineered by Paul Mahern (John Mellencamp, Over the
    Rhine, Willy Nelson, Lily & Madeleine). Newcomer is simultaneously
    releasing a companion book, A Permeable Life: Poems and
    Essays. Newcomer has attracted a devoted following with
    her warm voice, exquisite melodies, and an irreverent yet
    spiritual view of the world. As in the work of poets Mary
    Oliver and Wendell Berry, Newcomer's songs are based in
    the ordinary, and infused with images from the natural world.


    "A Permeable Life is about what presses out from the heart,
    what comes in at a slant and what shimmers below the
    surface of things," Newcomer says. "To live permeably is to
    be open-hearted and audacious, to risk showing up as our
    truest self, and embracing a willingness to be astonished."


    On this album, Newcomer's signature deep voice-which the Austin American-Statesman called "as rich
    as Godiva chocolate"-takes on a quiet conversational tone, close and intimate. Open and elegant arrangements
    showcase lyrics that balance introspection and interior monologue with love and fascination for the shared
    human story. The concept of this album was creating a musical framework as intimate and elegant as the songs
    themselves. Each individual part have clarity and beauty, tting perfectly together like the gears of a ne clock,
    and yet uid and never ridged or contained but remaining open and seemingly effortless. Newcomer states, "We
    wanted this album to be very intimate. We wanted the listener to feel very close as if in conversation with me.
    The vocals on this album were sung as if I were sitting at the kitchen table with the listener."


    In "Every Little Bit of It," Newcomer delights in the small experiences that give our life meaning, and the
    importance of embracing these moments while we can "drain the glass drink it down, every moment of this,
    every little bit of it." In "A Light in the Window," she reects on the feeling of seeing a light in the window at a
    distance. We don't know what the next threshold will bring, and yet there is always a whisper, a light in the
    distance giving us hope and encouragement. In "Writing You a Letter," Newcomer describes the process of
    traveling with an open heart, and how it will inevitably change us: "Every place I go leaves it's own tattoo." But
    she also knows that we make impressions when we leave: "That's how it is laying stone on stone, building little
    altars by the side of the road." "The Ten O'clock Line" and "Abide" (co-written with author Parker J. Palmer),
    explore themes of loss and new thresholds, musing on the possibility that what may look like a hole in one's
    life, may be only a space. In "Visitation," Newcomer describes the experience of how memories do not arrive in
    a linear fashion, but wash over us throughout the day. In the haunting "Thank You Good Night" she describes
    the evolution of a prayer of gratitude. "A Room at the Table" is an anthem for a new diverse world where she
    writes "This is how it all begins, let us sing the new world in," calling us to allow this troubled world to
    transform us and move us to action. In "An Empty Chair" she explores one woman's story in the wake of
    unexpected gun violence. And "Forever Ray" and "Don't Put Me On Hold" reect Newcomer's mischievous
    humor.

    American IV: The Man Comes Around

    On first thought, the idea of the Man in Black recording such covers as Bridge over Troubled Water, Danny Boy, and The First Time Ever I Saw Your
    Face might seem odd, even for an artist who's been able to put his personal stamp on just about everything. But American IV: The Man Comes Around,
    which also draws on Cash's original songs as well as those by Nine Inch Nails (Hurt), Sting (I Hung My Head), and Depeche Mode (Personal Jesus),
    may be one of the most autobiographical albums of the 70-year-old singer-songwriter's career. Nearly every tune seems chosen to afford the ailing giant
    of popular music a chance to reflect on his life, and look ahead to what's around the corner. From the opening track--Cash's own The Man Comes
    Around, filled with frightening images of Armageddon--the album, produced by Rick Rubin, advances a quiet power and pathos, built around spare
    arrangements and unflinching honesty in performance and subject. In 15 songs, Cash moves through dark, haunted meditations on death and
    destruction, poignant farewells, testaments to everlasting love, and hopeful salutes to redemption. He sounds as if he means every word, his baritonebass,
    frequently frayed and ravaged, taking on a weary beauty. By the time he gets to the Beatles' In My Life, you'll very nearly cry. Go ahead. He
    sounds as if he's about to, too. Unforgettable. --Alanna Nash


    This is the fourth in a series of collaborations between the original Man in Black, Johnny Cash, and producer Rick Rubin. The Man Comes Around
    features new Cash compositions as well as a diverse array of cover songs, including Nine Inch Nails Hurt, Hank Williams I'm So Lonesome I Could
    Cry, and Paul Simon's Bridge Over Troubled Waters. He duets with Don Henley on Desperado.

    Eaten Back To Life (Awaiting Repress)

    Originally Released in 1990 this 25th Anniversary Edition Picture Disc Features the Original Uncensored Art!


    Eaten Back to Life is the debut album by American death metal band Cannibal Corpse. It was released on 17 August 1990 through Metal Blade Records. The album was banned in Germany (censored versions were not available, but the ban was revoked in June 2006) and other countries because of the violent cover and the extreme nature of the lyrics.[citation needed] Glen Benton of Deicide and Francis H. Howard of Opprobrium (then known as Incubus) perform back-up vocals on Mangled and A Skull Full of Maggots.


    The following statement can be found in the inlay of this album: This album is dedicated to the memory of Alfred Packer, the first American cannibal (R.I.P.)


    This album has stronger influences of thrash metal than their future releases, as well as a slightly varied vocal style.

It is directed by Chris Renaud and Yarrow Cheney (Despicable Me 1&2)and written by Brian Lynch, Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio. The film stars American comedians Louis C.K. (terrier Max) and Kevin Hart (white rabbit Snowball) as voice actors. The film tells the story about Max's quiet life in his Manhattan apartment, which is disrupted when his owner Katie adopts a stray dog Duke.

    American Epic: The Best of Blind Willie Johnson

    Texas slide guitarist and gospel bluesman Blind Willie Johnson recorded only 30 songs over the course of his life as a preacher and street performer. Even so, the savvy combination of his gritty and powerful "chest voice" singing style coupled with his mastery of slide guitar (some report he regularly used a knife as a slide) has given him a notably influential legacy, specifically with later bluesmen Howlin' Wolf and Robert Johnson. His tune "Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground" was selected for Carl Sagan's Voyager probe Golden Record, the Library of Congress as well as the National Recording Registry.

    Songs In The Key Of Life

    No. 56 On Rolling Stone's List Of 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time


    2x 180 Gram Vinyl + Bonus 7-Inch EP


    Two years in the making, Songs In The Key Of Life is a groundbreaking sonic masterpiece that brilliantly brings together Stevie Wonder's genius for pop music, his bold experimentation, and his lyrical humanitarian concerns. Released on the Tamla label by Motown in late September 1976, the 21-song album remains an immeasurable influential recording.


    A critically acclaimed double-LP that includes a four-song bonus EP and a 24-page booklet, Songs In The Key Of Life is the first album by an American artist, and the first double-album, to debut at No. 1 on Billboard's Pop Album Chart. The album won the Grammy® for Album of the Year; Wonder also won for Producer of the Year; Best Pop Vocal Performance, Male; and Best R&B Vocal Performance, Male. The latter was awarded for "I Wish," the first single from the album, which hit No. 1 Pop and R&B. "Sir Duke," the follow-up single, was No. 1 on both charts as well, while "Another Star" and "As" were each Top 40 hits on the Pop and R&B charts; "Another Star" was also a top 3 club chart hit. Among the album's many other notable tracks, "Isn't She Lovely" was a hit without being released as a single; "Pastime Paradise" became the basis of Coolio's 1995 rap hit "Gangsta's Paradise," a No. 1 hit in many countries worldwide. A cover of "As," by George Michael and Mary J. Blige, was a top 5 hit in the U.K. in 1999. That same year, "I Wish" was prominently sampled in the No. 1 hit by Will Smith, "Wild Wild West."


    Songs In The Key Of Life, with Wonder and his band Wonderlove accompanied by all-star musicians and singers, is No. 56 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of "500 Greatest Albums of All Time." It is one of the few albums to be awarded Diamond status by the RIAA, for sales of more than ten million copies in the U.S.
