Hello good ladies and sirs! Welcome back to the only source of music news on the entire internet. Yup, that’s right, Nerdist Music has purchased Apple, Warner Bros. and virtually every other music outlet and media conglomerate in our quest to expedite the impending apocolypse/media singularity. Jk, lol. Well, except this is in fact another Nerdist Music Dispatch. Today’s topics include news from Foo Fighters, Eric Andre, and The Replacements.
The Foo Fighters previewed new material from their upcoming album Sonic Highways (Nov. 10) at a secret gig in Brighton, England on Wednesday night. The videos below rehash old material, but Rolling Stone reports that the Grohl and the gang previewed snippets of new songs throughout the performance. [Rolling Stone]
Jack White shared a music video for “Would You Fight For My Love”, and it features a lot of deep blue colors, a jukebox, and a lonely Jack White hanging out at a bar.
Death From Above 1979 played on television for the first time since going off the grid in the middle of the 2000s and they still have their mojo. Check out their Late Show With David Letterman performance below and then be sure to listen to their new album, The Physical World. [SPIN]

Jessie Ware, one of our favorite rising stars in the soul genre, shared a new music video for “Say You Love Me”, a slow burning plea of an R&B song. Will have to bookmark this puppy for our Valentine’s Day playlists this year.
Sturgill Simpson is one of the most philosophically engaging country artists working within the genre right now. The Kentucky-based songwriter appeared on CONAN to play “Living The Dream” from his album, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music.
Thundercat and Eric Andre made a really messed up music video for Thundercat’s “Tron Song” as part of the $5,000 Music Video series. Watch below as Thundercat toys around with autoerotic asphyxiation and see Eric Andre’s head explode? Why? Internet. [Pitchfork]
