The Wrap-Up brings you the 5 largest music news stories of the week as well as information about new album and music video releases. This week: a “Victorious” new music video, an on-stage stumble, CGI gorillas (not to be confused with Gorillaz), a thoughtful conversation, and an Exposure act covering pop.
Panic! at the Disco Release a "Victorious" New Video
Getting over that ex whom you swore was The One can be rough, but the "Victorious" video from Panic! at the Disco makes the recovery process look pretty damn appealing. In the video, frontman Brendon Urie progressively gets over a bad breakup and in return, experiences some good fortune, including winning $1 million. Filled with plenty of confetti and bottle popping, the grand video matches the spirit of the track.
Florence Welch Falls During Show
While leaping across the stage during a performance of "What Kind of Man" in Melbourne, Florence Welch fell into her band, the Machine. Welch broke her foot when the band performed at Coachella in April, but luckily the damage wasn't too bad this time around - she was able to quickly return to performing.
Coldplay Preview New Music Video
Some might say that Coldplay are creating a new image for themselves due to the sound of their latest single, "Adventure of a Lifetime." While that's definitely a topic you could debate at the bar this weekend, there isn't too much to debate about the band's image in track's music video. In a 15-second teaser released on Thursday, Coldplay revealed that they would become gorillas for the music video - because that's the best use of modern CGI technology, right? We can all judge the video when it's released on November 27.
Passion Pit's Michael Angelakos Discusses His Sexuality and Personal Growth
In an appearance on author Bret Easton Ellis’ podcast, Passion Pit frontman Michael Angelakos discussed a variety of topics, many of which reflected on his personal life. While speaking to Ellis about his marriage and divorce, Angelakos stated that he is gay. “It’s always been about putting it off in my head — not consciously,” Angelakos shared. “I just wanted so badly to be straight, because I love her so much. I think that was one of the most painful things when we decided to separate.” The episode overall allows us to listen to a considerate and thoughtful conversation between Angelakos and Ellis. You can listen to it above.
Tame Impala Cover Kylie Minogue
Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker is a huge fan of pop singer Kylie Minogue so it's not too big of a surprise to see that the Exposure band covered her 1994 hit “Confide In Me” this week. In 2012, Parker told Vogue that he owns The Best Of Kylie Minogue and loves "cheesy pop songs." Looks like some things never change.
