Earl Sweatshirt (unhappily) dropped his latest song "Grief" along with a track list for an upcoming album. The music video, which also unexpectedly appeared today, follows Kendrick Lamar's surprise release of "How to Pimp a Butterfly" yesterday. Intentional or unintentional, we don't mind, we've been craving some new music and are in hip hop heaven.

The Juxtapoz month of Björk appreciation continues (her classic Post album is the cover of our April 2515 issue). The Icelandic artist just released the second video from her new album, Vulnicura, for the track "Family." The new visuals follows quickly on the heels of her video for “Lionsong" and the opening of her retrospective (of sorts) at MoMA.

As you may have noticed, we have made a Björk month here at Juxtapoz, with her cover story, retrospective at MoMA, and full microsite we made with Squarespace about the latter events. The Icelandic icon just released a new video for "Lionsong" off the new Vulnicura album, directed by Inez & Vinoodh.

We were gearing for a new Grimes LP, and she seems to have scrapped the album. But luckily for the Internet, and ways by which artists can release their albums and songs, Grimes went ahead and released the track "REALiTi" and the video she shot with her brother, Mac. She shot the video when on the Asia-leg of her tour, in Singapore, KL, Manila, Jakarta, HK, Shanghai, Beijing, Taipei, Seoul, Osaka, Nagoya and Tokyo. And the song is good, too.

This is going to be a fun month here at Juxtapoz as we celebrate Björk and her retrospective at MoMA, but also her cover for the April 2015 issue of our print edition. We also get the chance to kick back and see some of the work our friends have done with Björk over the years; first up being our friends at Ghost Robot and the production they did on the amazing video for "Wanderlust" off of 2007's Volta LP. Directed by Encyclopedia Pictura, this is one of Björk's most masterful videos.

Hey everyone one! Blur is back. That may be big news for some, in our office we are pretty sure one member of the staff was quite happy. Blur's members were busy for the past 12 years, Damon Albarn doing all sorts of projects, one being the highly successful Gorillaz. The last time we saw Blur, they had a Banksy-designed LP called Think Tank. On April 12, 2015, they will release The Magic Whip, and have a lyric-video for the song "Go Out."

We wanted to start the day off on the darkness mood possible, and elegant dark if you will. So, if you don't mind, watch this nearly erotic, definitely raw, video by Pedro Maia for Vessel's track, "Drowned in Water and Light."

Some people are scared of clowns. Some people don't like to see sad clowns. And we are sure some people will be on the flipside and like to see Courtney Barnett dressed up like a clown for the track "Pedestrian At Best" that will be on her forthcoming LP, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit is out March 24 via Mom + Pop. For any song that begins with the lyrics, "I love you I hate you," we approve.

Animator/director Ruffmercy, who was behind Run the Jewels' latest video, has been busy this year. And last year. And probably the year before that. Earlier this month Young Thug, Freddie Gibbs & A$AP Ferg released their video for "Old English" which Ruffmercy directed. Previously he has also done videos for Disclosure, Danny Brown, Dudley Perkins, Blu + Flying Lotus, and House Shoes among many others...
