The long-awaited album is also available for pre-order and will be released May 21.

Get your (awkward) dance on

Sara Bareilles' new video may just inspire a spontaneous dance-off of extraordinarily ordinary talent. The video for Brave, the first single off her upcoming album The Blessed Unrest, features random, everyday people showing off their hip-shaking, leg-kicking, arm-flailing moves. 

None of the dancers will make the next season of So You Think You Can Dance ... and that's the beauty of it.

Go ahead, be brave and dance along. Nobody's looking.

The Blessed Unrest releases July 16.

30 years later, Huey Lewis is still all heart and soul

If Huey Lewis and the News' Sports album isn't in your '80s collection, you have a chance to atone for your grave musical mistake.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the band's most successful album, they are re-releasing Sports as a two-disc package, one featuring the original studio cuts and the second featuring live tracks.

The album garnered four top-10 hits, including Heart of Rock and Roll and Heart and Soul.

The re-release of Sports is available on

'Great Gatsby' soundtrack selling big

The soundtrack for Baz Lurhmann's The Great Gatsby, produced by Jay-Z, claimed the No. 2 spot of the Billboard 200 with 137,000 albums sold - the best sales week for a soundtrack in over a year. But that's not all, it also claimed the No. 1 spot on the Digital Albums chart.

In a new take on a classic story, the soundtrack replaced jazz with some of today's most popular hip hop, pop and alternative artists - including Beyonce, Fergie, Florence and the Machine, Jay-Z, Gotye, Sia and Lana Del Rey.

Del Rey recently released the music video for the song she sings on the soundtrack, Young and Beautiful.

In a hauntingly beautiful video, Del Rey captures the sultry mood of both the song and the movie. We encourage you to watch Del Rey's most recent piece of art and to check out the rest of the soundtrack at

CMT Awards performers announced

In the meantime, fans can vote for their favorites including Video of the Year and CMT Performance of the Year on

The CMT Awards, hosted by Jason Aldean and Kristen Bell, air at 8 p.m. on Country Music Television.

What better than an awesome cover?

Two of YouTube's finest artists, Alex G. and Max Schneider, paired up to cover Florida Georgia Line and Nelly's Cruise.

Separately these two artists have powerful voices, but together they're electric. And we have to admit that Schneider's addition of a ukulele puts an original spin on an already unique song.

So hop in your car, roll your windows down and let this tune carry you away into summertime.

And finally ...

When you've spent months at a time "sitting in a tin can high above the world," you have to find creative ways to spend your day that don't involve inconsequential things like gravity. 

Astronaut Chris Hadfield, who recently returned from a five-month stint aboard the International Space Station, spent much of that time tweeting out incredible images of the Earth.

As a final tribute to his time in space, Hadfield released his own cover of David Bowie's Space Oddity a day ahead of coming back to the home planet. 

We don't know if its the first music video shot in space, but with stunning images of the Earth spinning below, it's certainly the best.
