Nominated for two GRAMMYs this year, including Best New Artist, the U.K.’s Mumford & Sons have turned folk music on its head with their modern take on traditional, acoustic music. They didn’t take home any statues at this year’s awards, but they still took Los Angeles by storm last weekend. Click through here to watch them perform live at CBS Interactive Music’s pre-award-show bash at the GRAMMY Museum in LA.
From the upcoming album Angles released March 22nd via RCA records, the song “Under Cover Of Darkness” is the band’s first new release since 2006′s First Impressions of Earth and dips back to an earlier Strokes sound, expanding on the feel of their older singles, like “Hard To Explain.”
This soulful British singer is barely 22 years old, but her music belies an artist with a much older soul. “Rolling In The Deep” is the first single off her new album “21” (her age when she wrote most of the songs), which documents the painful process of breaking up a relationship. Adele will star in a live webcast performance as part of CBS’s “Live on Letterman” series, next Monday (2/21) at 9pm ET at CBS.com.
The most talked-about new single of 2011 is Gaga’s newest, “Born This Way,” also the title track off her forthcoming second album. With her big GRAMMY performance now under her belt, Gaga appears at Madison Square Garden in New York City next Monday and Tuesday nights. While we wait for her sure-to-be-scandalous new video, listen to “Born This Way” now on Vevo.com.
