Exclusive: Stream Judas Priest’s ‘Redeemer Of Souls’

Judas Priest - press shot copy

Attention all metal fans and Judas Priest worshippers, Rdio and AndrewHaugRdio are giving you an Australian and New Zealand exclusive - stream Judas Priest’s new album ’Redeemer Of Souls’ exclusively before its release on Friday, July 11th.

’Redeemer Of Souls’ is the iconic band’s 17th LP. In their own words, “Raising the bar is consistent for us and this album hits the ground running...We feel ’Redeemer Of Souls’ reinforces our passion for what we believe in from the Judas Priest style heavy metal.”

First bursting onto the scene with 1974’s ’Rocka Rolla’, Judas Priest is arguably responsible for some of metal’s all-time great albums - 1980’s ‘British Steel’, 1982’s ’Screaming For Vengance’ and 1990’s ’Painkiller’. 2014 and this latest album release marks the 40th anniversary of the band.

The album is exclusively available for pre-stream at AndrewHaugRadio, powered by Rdio.

Credit+-+Rachel+Hubbard (1)
Portland’s STRFKR is a group that’s close to our hearts here at Rdio. We were the first to offer a preview of last year’s album Miracle Mile and are now thrilled to present the band’s contribution to Rdio Sessions, our set of intimate recordings available only on Rdio.

Recorded live in San Francisco, this exclusive STRFKR set includes highlights from Miracle Mile including the bright pop of “Malmö,” the swaggering “While I’m Alive,” and the discofied “Atlantis,” plus “Bury Us Alive” from 2011’s Reptilians and “Rawnald Gregory Erickson The Second,” the irresistibly bouncy song from the self-titled 2008 debut Starfucker that started it all. Go ahead and have a sweaty dance party, we won’t tell!

Subscribe to the Rdio Sessions playlist to hear more recordings from Rdio favorites such as Passenger, City and Colour and Shout Out Louds.

Exclusive: The Presets Remix “Goodbye Future”

The-presets-goodbye-future

The godfathers of Australian EDM, The Presets have released an official remix of their latest single, “Goodbye Future,” exclusively on Rdio.

"Goodbye Future (Club Edit)" is an electric, euphoric jolt to the system and a stellar return to the duo’s signature sound.

“While it’s great to produce tracks that are succinct in length and to the point, it’s also really fun to revisit tracks specifically for the club environment — and to give musical passages and parts the space they need to breathe and move for the dance floor,” say the duo, Julian Hamilton and Kim Moynes.

“Goodbye Future (Club Edit)” is available exclusively on Rdio until March 7th. You can catch The Presets on tour with regional festival Groovin' The Moo, as well as at their three sideshows, presented by Rdio:

Thursday 1st May - The Metro - Sydney
Friday 2nd May - The Hi-Fi - Melbourne
Thursday 8th May - Capitol - Perth

Worldwide Exclusive: Stream Snoop’s New Funk Masterpiece

STH2334-2235(45box)

Just when you had gotten used to calling him Snoop Lion, the dee oh double gee has flipped it once again! Snoop Dogg’s latest alias is Snoopzilla, the insatiable funk monster who stars with SoCal producer Dam-Funk in 7 Days of Funk. The new album furthers Snoop’s career-long dedication to the G-Funk and the P-Funk as descended from his spiritual godfather George Clinton and his frequent collaborator Bootsy Collins (who Snoop tributes here with his Snoopy Collins guise). Bootsy himself guest stars on the album, as does Dogg Pound homies Daz and Kurupt and multi-instrumentalist Steve Arrington. In addition, the Rdio edition of 7 Days of Funk will feature an exclusive bonus track “Wingz,” which will continue to be available only on Rdio. Get into the funk and start to stream and share 7 Days of Funk below.
