Listen to PUP’s new song “Doubts” RIGHT NOW


If there’s one thing that PUP is really, really good at, it’s their damn near perfect way of mixing abrasive and in-your-face snottiness with complete relatability. That’s exactly what they deliver on their new song “Doubts,” which Zane Lowe premiered earlier this morning on Beats 1!

Astronautalis won the mtvU Freshmen contest and released a new song!


Last week, Astronautalis called on his fans to help him win mtvU’s Freshmen contest. For those who don’t know, every week mtvU picks a handful of new music videos for fans to vote on. The winning video gets SIX weeks of airplay on mtvU. Pretty sweet deal if you ask us.

Anyway… in an effort to incentivize his fans to vote, Astronautalis said that if he won the contest, he would release a new song from his upcoming album Cut The Body Loose.

You can guess what happened next.

HE WON!

AND HE RELEASED A NEW SONG!

AND HERE IT IS!
