In lieu of the upcoming release of the 2014 Jamie Foxx/Cameron Diaz vehicle Annie, a highly reworked rendering of the classic musical, the soundtrack for the film will be released November 17th.
One of the most interesting aspects of the film is the modern spin on the original songs. For example, Sia does a rendition of "You're Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile," one of three tracks she has on the album. The soundtrack also features original songs by Sia and Beck, as well as actors Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz, and Rose Byrne.
Jennifer Lopez is the latest act that may have her own residency in Las Vegas. The singer is in talks to perform at the same venue where Britney Spears performs her show “Piece of Me.”

Spears is in the middle of her two years residency which includes a total of 96 shows in which she earns $310,000 per show.
Tropical house is where it’s at these days. One of the newcomers of the fast emerging sub-genre is Norwegian native, Bearson. Bearson has worked on hit remixes in the past but his new spin on James Bay's, Let It Go is by far the best work of his yet, showing some melodious poise over laidback percussion. James Bay’s vocals are the perfect complement to what Bearson constructs with his talent.
Cazzette, The Swedish electronic music duo who rocked the Swedish charts with their certified-gold "Sleepless" earlier this year strike once again with their new single "Blind Heart", set for release next Monday, October 27th.
Cazzette have made a name for themselves in the dance world, paving the way for dance music artists using streaming to reach the masses. The duo have been well-received in the industry, with sold-out shows around the world, including live shows alongside fellow Swede DJ Avicii.

For those who don’t know about Duvoh, it seems it’s the time to get to know. The Los Angeles-based pair, who has recently provided show support for Deorro, has now secured a release on his own Panda Funk Records.
The order of the day is electro-fuelled progressive house, and delivered in highly notable style. With fiery drum patterns, fast-moving synth chords and an infectious melody driven by Adrian Delgado’s vocals, there is no doubt that "Darkness I Needed" will cause a stir on the dance floor.
We’re sure this next release is going to enjoy chart success. It’s the opening title track from KDrew’s new EP "Signals" and brings the highest quality of production, similar to the likes of Swedish House Mafia. Available to stream now via Good Game Records,this one thoroughly deserves your attention.
Gregori Klosman, the Parisian producer whose beats have given a new pulse to club music in recent years, has announced the upcoming release of his newest single, "Time To Be Alone," featuring Sarah Mount.
With this track, Klosman moves away from his club-focused sound to create a track riding the line between pop-perfect and dance-crazy. Blending piano with synths and the soulful vocals of Sarah Mount, "Time To Be Alone" makes for a warm and inviting sound that leaves listeners feeling pleasantly invigorated.
"Time To Be Alone" will be available for download exclusively from Beatport on November 17th, followed by wider release on December 2nd.
