LISTEN: Kid Cudi Returns to Rap with 'Whiskey'

Kid Cudi has recently been entertaining the idea of rock stardom. Perhaps hoping to prove he’s still got flow, Cudi created a new song called “Dennis, Hook Me Up With Some More Of That Whiskey!”

The self-produced track features samples of looped guitar mixed with another, more rumbling guitar part for an air of elegance that’s undercut by Cudi’s unmistakable anger issues. Stream the track now from Complex.

LISTEN: Florence + The Machine's New Track 'Breath of Life'

Florence + the Machine have recorded a new track, "Breath Of Life," for the soundtrack to the forthcoming Hollywood blockbuster Snow White and the Huntsman. The track, which features a large orchestra, was recorded in Los Angeles and, according to singer Florence Welch is inspired by the film's character of the evil Queen Ravenna, played by Charlize Theron.

Speaking about the track, Welch said: "The Queen is just this incredible character; so hungry for life but so dead inside. She's sort of eternal, but inside there's nothing. She's kind of like charcoal or something. She has this thirst for youth and for life, but for what kind of life? This darkness, but she's so beautiful, so it's this kind of juxtaposition between beauty and, ultimately, death."

The soundtrack is due for release on May 29 in the US, with the rest of the track listing still to be confirmed. Snow White and the Huntsman stars Twilight actress Kristen Stewart and Thor's Chris Hemsworth as well as Theron and is due to be released on June 1.
