Harry Styles, Florence Pugh Team Up On 'With You All The Time' From 'Don't Worry Darling'

Harry Styles, Florence Pugh Team Up On 'With You All The Time' From 'Don't Worry Darling'

Harry Styles and Florence Pugh teamed up for "With You All The Time," a song featured in the new Olivia Wilde-directed movie Don't Worry Darling.

Styles and Pugh star in the movie as Jack and Alice. On streaming services, the nearly three-minute-long song is credited to "Alice and Jack."

"With You All The Time" is a "trigger song" that keeps popping up in the film, with Pugh's character humming it throughout the psychological thriller.

Wilde told Variety last month that it only took the 28-year-old Grammy winner five minutes to make the song.

"In prep, Harry called me and said, 'What's the trigger song? Like, what's the melody?'" she explained to the publication. "I said, 'I don't know. I'm going to different writers to write it. Do you have anything in mind?' And he said, 'I'll think about it.'"

"Five minutes later, he sent me a demo from his piano, and it was what ended up in the film," Wilde continued. "He called me and said, 'What about this?' And I was like, 'Yeah, that's it. That's it. And that's really insane that you did that in five minutes.'"

"I wanted something that could be both sweet and creepy, entirely dependent on the context," Styles told Variety.

"I remember first playing it on the piano, and it had a sort of homemade nursery rhyme feel to it," he added. "Applied to the different moments in the film, I think it takes on a couple of different lives - I hope."

Noah Cyrus Duets With Dad Billy Ray Cyrus On Emotional 'Noah (Stand Still)'

Noah Cyrus recently released a new duet version of "Noah (Stand Still)," featuring her dad Billy Ray Cyrus.

The track sees Cyrus reflecting on advice she received from her father while she was battling her Xanax addiction.

"Death upon my doorstep, if I took just one more step/ There'd be nothin' left of me except these songs/ And my father told me, 'Noah/ When you don't know where you're goin'/ Just stand still/ Soon enough you will,'" Noah croons over quiet acoustic guitar on the opening verse.

After Billy Ray sings the second verse, Noah does the harmonies with him, singing, "Just stand still and watch your sunset leave/ The lonely dirt under your feet to fill/ Just stand still/ Sixty-seven-thousand miles an hour/ Around the sun, and that is how it feels/ Just stand still."

Noah's much-awaited debut album The Hardest Part, which arrived earlier this month, features a solo version of "Noah (Stand Still)" as the opening track.

Post Malone Postpones Boston Show After Being Hospitalized With Breathing Difficulties

Post Malone was forced to postponed his Boston show an hour before its scheduled start on Saturday, as he was hospitalized with breathing difficulties a week after falling down on stage.

In a message addressed to his fans, just before a scheduled performance at Boston's TD Garden, Malone wrote, "Boston, I love y'all so f**ing much. On tour, I usually wake up around 4 o'clock PM, and today I woke up to a cracking sound on the right side of my body. I felt so good last night, but today it felt so different than it has before. I'm having a very difficult time breathing, and there's like a stabbing pain whenever I breathe or move."

"We're in the hospital now, but with this pain, I can't do the show tonight," he added. "I'm so f**ing sorry. Everyone's tickets for tonight's show will be valid for the reschedule that we're planning right now. Once again, I'm so f-ing sorry, I love y'all so much. I feel terrible, but I promise I'm going to make this up to you. I love you Boston, I'll see you soon."

On September 17, Post Malone took a nasty spill on stage while performing in St. Louis as part of a tour in support of his latest album, Twelve Carat Toothache. He tripped and fell into an open trap door that wasn't properly covered. He resumed the show after a brief break.

Lana Del Rey Course Launched At NYU's Clive Davis Institute

Lana Del Rey Course Launched At NYU's Clive Davis Institute

New York University's Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music has launched a new course for this fall focused on singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey.

The course, titled "Topics in Recorded Music: Lana Del Rey," will run from October 20 to December 8. It will be taught by journalist and author Kathy Iandoli.

According to Variety, the course description reads, "Over the course of eight critically-acclaimed albums, the six-time Grammy nominated artist has introduced a sad core, melancholic, and baroque version of dream pop that in turn helped shift and reinvent the sound (and mood) of mainstream music beyond the 2010s."

"Through her arresting visuals and her thematic attention to mental health and tales of toxic, damaged love, Del Rey provided a new platform for artists of all genders to create 'anti-pop' works of substance that could live in a mainstream once categorized as bubblegum," the description adds.

The course will also examine Del Rey's relationship to feminism, musical influences and connection to social justice movements.

Mariah Carey Hints At Plans To Release Lost Alt-Rock Album 'Someone's Ugly Daughter'

Mariah Carey Hints At Plans To Release Lost Alt-Rock Album 'Someone's Ugly Daughter'

Mariah Carey has hinted about her plans to release Someone's Ugly Daughter, a lost alternative rock album.

The pop superstar secretly recorded the album in 1995 under the pseudonym Chick.

Speaking to Rolling Stone's "Rolling Stone Now" podcast, Carey revealed that she recently came across a version of the album with her vocals in the forefront.

"The quest for that version is going great. We actually have it," she said, when asked about the long-lost album. "This was my outlet, and nobody knew about it. Most people, I'd rather they don't even know about it until we decide exactly what happens from that quest of finding those vocals."

Carey also hinted that she intends to release her version of Someone's Ugly Daughter and is also planning a related project.

Speaking about the album, she said it "will become something we should hear, but also, I'm working on a version where there will be another artist working with me. Possibly something built around the album."

Cardi B Pleads Guilty To Assault Charges Stemming From 2018 Strip Club Fight

Cardi B Pleads Guilty To Assault Charges Stemming From 2018 Strip Club Fight

Cardi B has pleaded guilty to two assault charges related to a fight at a New York strip club in 2018.

The rapper was set to go to trial last week, but she accepted a plea deal that avoids prison time. The judge sentenced the rapper to 15 days of community service; Cardi B was also handed a three-year full order of protection for the two victims and court fees.

In a statement, Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, wrote, "Part of growing up and maturing is being accountable for your actions. As a mother, it's a practice that I am trying to instill in my children, but the example starts with me. I've made some bad decisions in my past that I am not afraid to face and own up to."

"These moments don't define me and they are not reflective of who I am now," she added. "I'm looking forward to moving past this situation with my family and friends and getting back to the things I love the most-the music and my fans."

In an additional statement, Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz said, "No one is above the law. In pleading guilty today, Ms. Belcalis Almanzar and two co-defendants have accepted responsibility for their actions. This Office is satisfied with the resolution, which includes appropriate community service."

Prosecutors claimed that Cardi B threw champagne bottles at two sisters who were bartenders at the club. The incident stemmed from the singer claiming that one of the woman was having an affair with her husband Offset. The attack took place at Angels Strip Club in Flushing, Queens.
