Entertainment, Music
It’s a dream come true when two of your favourite artists unite to create a magical album together. LA Priest and Connan Mockasin have joined collaborative forces to make Soft Hair happen. Releasing their work in a week, it’s time to prepare for the trippy dance fest that’s going to happen. Reporter: Larry Gliddon  Sub-Editor: Andrew Whiteford The pair met back in 2007, but it’s been a while since both of them have produced anything individually.

Lady Gaga – Joanne: Track-by-track Review

Entertainment, Music
Since the release of comeback single Perfect Illusion in September, Gaga has wanted to make it clear about what this album is not going to be. It won’t be a traditional pop album.

If you are listening to Joanne with intentions of finding your new Bad Romance or Paparazzi, then you may have to look elsewhere.
