Sir Paul McCartney made his Lollapalooza debut last night, helping kick off the iconic three day event in Chicago with a massive two hour, 15 minute set that saw the legendary artist delve into his catalogue of Wings and Beatles songs that had the tens of thousands of fans singing along from start to finish. He even had Brittany Howard from Alabama Shakes singing along, when she joined the Beatle for a rendition of "Get Back" on both vocals and guitar, taking on a verse for herself with a gusto that we're sure would have contradicted the "pinch me, is this actually happening?" feeling anyone would experience in that situation.
A new festival is coming to Newcastle and it's got a little bit of this, a little bit of that...

After releasing one of the best albums of the year, Miguel has given us the visuals for his latest single "NWA" with West Coast classic Kurupt. The smooth, seductive groove is a highlight of Wildheart and it's video was originally released as part of a sectioned short film entitled Wildheart Chapter 1: Find What You Love and Let It Kill You; demand has pushed the versatile crooner so also split some of the videos up, hence we get a nice and short(er) look at NWA as Miguel and Kurupt cruise around L.A separately; Miguel on foot, and Kurupt driving slow through the back streets of his neighbourhood. Watch the clip below.
