Something sultry's blowing in from the west...
+ Oop, looks like we were born to LIVE. Lana Del Rey tweeted the artwork for lead Ultraviolence single "West Coast" on Thursday, along with a cryptic, vaguely lyrical message: "Down on the West Coast, they got a sayin'..." Hopefully, she'll tell us what it is during her Coachella performance on Sunday. (Idolator)
+ Speaking of cover art, Ariana Grande can't decide between two different options for her next single. In an Instagram post, she told her fans: "[Neither] have been edited properly but I wanted to get your input on which cover y'all like better for my upcoming single... whatcha think? #coverproblem." Arianators, help a sister out? (MTV News)
+ Listen to a preview of Miley Cyrus and The Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne's cover of The Beatles' "A Day in the Life." The pair have also recorded a cover of"Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds." (MTV News)
+ While Jennifer Lopez has yet to reveal both the title and the release date for her forthcoming album, she did reveal a bunch of the featured artists. French Montana, Tyga, Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa, Robin Thicke, and Maxwell are officially in the mix. (MTV News)
+ R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe inducted Nirvana into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame last night. "Nirvana were artists in every sense of the word," Michael said. "Nirvana tapped into a voice that was yearning to be heard. Nirvana were kicking against the mainstream. They spoke truth and a lot of people listened." (Rolling Stone)
