Special Sneak Preview Of Sheryl Crow’s New Single, “Summer Day”

Immediately following a weekend in which most of you (we hope!) spent time outside celebrating America’s birthday with family and friends, we’re excited to bring you a :30 sneak peek at Sheryl Crow‘s latest video, a video which sees her, her bandmates and even her son, Wyatt, enjoying the simple pleasures of the great outdoors. The song, “Summer Day,” is the catchy and altogether summery-feeling first single from her seventh studio album, 100 Miles From Memphis. As Crow herself explains over at her official website, “I wanted to experiment with writing something simple and positive, the feeling of a great, solid love—not just a new love, but something everlasting.” We’ll have the full video for you to check out online on Thursday and, no doubt, you’re sure to see this song rising in our Top 20 Video Countdown just as fast as the mercury is rising in thermometers across the country this week.

Posted: Sara Bareilles Discusses The Emotions And Stress Surrounding Her Kaleidoscope Heart Sessions


For Sara’s latest installment of her VH1 Posted series, she took the time to write this elegant note about the various emotions she went through during the process of writing and recording her second full-length album, Kaleidoscope Heart. Enjoy!

It’s me, Sara. As I’ve said before, I don’t do those fancy bios. So sue me.

Kaleidoscope Heart is my new album, and I’m beyond proud of this collection of songs, in no small part due to the fact it was like pulling teeth to write them.

Maroon 5 Is Back With “Misery” (30-Second Sneak Peek)

It’s been a little over three years since Maroon 5 released their last studio album, It Won’t Be Soon Before Long. Led by singles “Wake Up Call” and “Makes Me Wonder”, the record was both a domestic and international smash, minting Adam Levine and the boys as true superstars of the music industry.

This September, Maroon 5 will be releasing their latest album, Hands All Over. The band holed up in the studio with super-producer/hit maker Robert “Mutt” Lange (AC/DC, Def Leppard, Shania Twain) and came out with another batch of slinky jams that you’ll surely be blasting on your stereos for many moons to come. We’ll be debuting the video for the record’s first single, “Misery” on Thursday, but until then, we’ve got a 30-second sneak and a few stills that ought to whet your appetite.

Special Sneak Preview of Sara Bareilles’ “King Of Anything” Music Video

We officially fell for Sara Bareilles‘ delightful bitterness back in 2007 when the singer/songwriter wrote a sarcasm-coated, not-so-romantic “Love Song” that wound up soaring to #4 on Billboard‘s Hot 100. It was then that the newly-dubbed VH1 You Oughta Know artist proved that her album and single were a force to be reckoned with, and we all watched as her following grew and blossomed into full-blown stardom.

Almost three years later, Sara hasn’t lost her touch or snarky sense of humor. Her third studio album, Kaleidoscope Heart, is due out in September, and the first single, “King of Anything,” manages to ever-so-sweetly punch all of the “unsolicited advice” Bareilles has ever received in the face. And much like “Love Song,” it’s a catchy tune that will certainly burrow itself into your brain. Although we won’t have the full “King of Anything” video online and on-air untilThursday, the 30-second sneak of the video above should hold you over until then. You’ll see that Sara looks and sounds as beautiful as ever, and we’re pumped to see what she sends our way all month long as VH1’s Posted artist for July.
