Rounding up the latest release news…

EDM’s pet ex-emo kid Skrillex has pasted a ‘tame’ new clip for his new single ‘Try It Out (Neon Mix)’, a collaboration with an artist signed to his OWSLA label, Stateside DJ Alvin Risk. In it, he gives a lion a good smooch, the poor thing (the lion, I mean). See the video in a bit, post Skrillo’s ‘pumped up’ intro to it, which goes: “If you’re feeling like you need a lil umph in your rumph, bang this track and get pumped up for whatever it is you’re trying out”.

Try out ‘Try It Out’ now:

Vying with Skrillex for your ear next, it’s the always-noisy Azealia Banks and her remix of Britney Spears’ recent single, ode-to-entrepreneurism ‘Work Bitch’. Hear Azealia rapping over the first half, quickly tiring, saying “you mad” five times, and finally taking a nap, leaving Brit to finish the track herself, here:

It’s onto Mr (Robbie) Williams now, who’s confirmed the first single from his ‘Swings Both Ways’ LP is going to be ‘Go Gentle’, also sharing snips of all thirteen ‘Swings’ tracks via this handy/pointless sampler. One of six non-covers on the swingin compilation, ‘Go Gentle’, which is actually quite nice, will have its big release day on 11 Nov, prior to the LP’s on 18 Nov. In the meantime, take it easy by previewing ‘Go Gentle’ in its entirety:

Ending it all (release summary-wise) today are Montreal alt-pop lot No Joy, who have taken great pleasure in detailing a new tri-track EP, titled ‘Pastel And Pass Out’, that they’re releasing via Mexican Summer on 4 Nov. Mixed and mastered by Violens’ Jorge Elbrecht, its individual inner titles – ‘Last Boss’, ‘Star Child Is Dead’ and ‘Second Spine’ – will be available on 12 inch vinyl only, likely at the merch stand at any dates on the band’s November/December tour of Europe.

Hear ‘Last Boss’ here:
