Post Malone Talks New Album, Courtney Love, and COVID-19 on Nirvana Livestream

"I'm really proud of the music we're making. I'm having a lot of f*cking fun and I'm really excited to put something new out for you all to listen to, I suppose."

"I'm trying to put it out as soon as I f*cking can," said Post Malone, who has apparently been spending his quarantined days polishing his third album at home. "I'm really proud of the music we're making."

Post livestreamed covers of Nirvana songs this Friday and peppered the show with asides like that one. The performance featured additional efforts from Travis Barker of Blink-182, bassist Brian Lee, and guitarist Nick Mack. The whole set was a benefit for the United Nations Foundation's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund; with Google's help, they raised $3 million.

Did you know Post Malone was a huge Nirvana fan?

While the rapper and the iconic 90s band share little in terms of sound and style, their attitudes couldn't be more similar. Both Posty and the late Kurt Cobain's band have songs that rail against the state of society, delve into personal anxieties, and generally give a voice to a portion of a generation that feels left behind.

This year, Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church Easter service will feature some illustrious guests.

The Houston-based church will livestream its Easter Sunday service this week. Entitled "Hope Is Alive," the service will boast a few famous faces—including Mariah Carey, Tyler Perry, and one Kanye West. Carey will supposedly perform some kind of tribute to healthcare workers, possibly "Hero," and Perry will offer words of encouragement. West will, of course, bring his Sunday Service choir (appropriately social distanced).

"We saw an incredible five million people tune in online on Palm Sunday. We expect even more Easter weekend," stated a church representative.

Last year, West brought his Sunday service to the church, back in the pre-coronavirus era, and performed for over a thousand people.

This year's virtual Sunday Service will stream online Saturday at 7 PM and Sunday at 8:30AM and 11AM. Viewers can tune in via the church's website, YouTube channel and Facebook page, or Roku, AppleTV and SiriusXM Channel 128.

With support from RÜFÜS DU SOL's Rose Avenue record label, Australian producer Cassian released his latest single today, an electro-infused pop record titled " Same Things." The single, which features LA up-and-comer Gabrielle Current, combines the soul of American Indie with the unique electronic production that Cassian is known for. The DJ's first single off the Rose Avenue label, "Lafayette," was supported by Nora En Pure, Hayden James and RÜFÜS in their 2018 MIXMAG cover mix. Praised by What So Not, Hayden James and Alex Metric, Cassian is an upcoming act that has only grown in popularity since his debut.

The producer had a heavy hand in crafting RÜFÜS's SOLACE, as well as their sophomore record Bloom. He also supported the trio on all three of their sold out shows in LA's Shrine Expo Hall. Cassian will also be joining RÜFÜS on their forthcoming Australian tour dates.
