Hunter Hayes Not Ready to Reveal Who Is Inspiring the Love Songs on Upcoming Album, "Storyline"

Warner Music NashvilleHunter Hayes admits both the happy and sad love songs on his upcoming album, Storyline, are mostly inspired by his personal experiences. He's just not ready to reveal exactly who inspired those songs just yet.

When asked why he keeps his personal life under wraps, Hunter explains, "I've bared my soul on this record. That's my choice for my life. Anyone that is connected to me doesn't necessarily make those choices, so I guess I just -- I respect them."

It doesn't look like Hunter will reveal the name of anyone he's dating until things turn pretty serious in the relationship.

He adds, "They don't ask to be written about and they don't ask to be talked about in interviews. So, I just kind of prefer to respect that, until otherwise noted -- until otherwise it feels like that's right."

For now, it seems the main love in Hunter's life remains his music.

"Seriously, it does come down to me just being pretty boring," Hunter says. "I mean, the only thing for me to really talk about is music, and that's fine with me."

Hunter's new album, Storyline, is due out May 6 featuring his latest single, "Invisible."

Lorde Wonders if People Will Still Like Her When She's 25 

ABC/Lou RoccoMuch has been made of the fact that Lorde has managed to accomplish all that she has at such a young age.  But the 17-year-old star from New Zealand says she sometimes wonders if people will still think she's so great when she hits the ripe old age of, oh, say, 25.

Speaking to Elle.com, Lorde, born Ella Yelich-O'Connor, says, "I think a lot about mortality, and I just get way too in my head about it. Since I started making music a lot was made of how old I was and it made me think about, 'What happens when I’m 25? Will people still like what I'm doing? Is it still important if I’m not this hyper-youthful being?'"

"It’s stupid," she admits. "I know I’m being silly. But I can’t help it. It’s just one of those things. I’ll get over it."

Lorde is also concerned with keeping her head on straight as her enormous fame grows.  Noting that a year ago, most people didn't know who she was, she tells Elle.com, "I guess it has been fast. But I don’t feel like it’s moving faster than I’m taking it in. I feel very on track with it."

She adds, "A lot of things, like playing Coachella, feel a lot more normal and comfortable now that we’ve had a lot of experiences that could be considered a big deal. But I have an awesome team who help me not burn out and die. And I always have someone from my family on the road with me."

Lorde's tour continues this week with shows in Las Vegas and Phoenix, and she'll return to Coachella this weekend for the music festival's second weekend.

Pharrell's New Track "Here" from Amazing Spider-Man 2 Surfaces Online

Columbia Records

Pharrell Williams has contributed not one, but two songs to the soundtrack of upcoming film The Amazing Spider-Man 2. After producing for Alicia Keys' "It's On Again" featuring Kendrick Lamar, the hitmaker recorded a slow-tempo ballad called "Here."

In the acoustic guitar-driven song, Pharrell pours his heart out on the subject of reuniting with the love of his life.  "We're here again/ Our thing right where we left it/ A delusion is a flight, first class to nowhere/ While a dream is a blueprint, a plane to go there," he sings.

Fans can expect "Here" and "It's On Again" to appear on the film's soundtrack album, arriving on April 22.

Josh Homme Breaks Gay Stereotypes in "Portlandia" Appearance

Gary Miller/FilmMagicJosh Homme will appear on this week’s installment of the popular IFC TV series Portlandia, according to the network’s official website.

In the episode, the Queens of the Stone Age singer plays Carrie Brownstein’s gay brother who has come to Portland to introduce his boyfriend to Carrie and co-star Fred Armisen.  The gag is that Carrie and Fred are expecting a stereotypical gay couple who they're hoping will help them redecorate their house.  But Josh and his boyfriend are slobs who met by getting into a bar fight at ESPN Zone and drink Jagermeister for breakfast.

"I totally got ripped off on the gay relative thing," says Carrie in a teaser video clip.

Portlandia airs Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on IFC.

Cream's Jack Bruce Releases Diverse New Solo Album, "Silver Rails"

Cherry Red RecordsSilver Rails, Cream singer/bassist Jack Bruce's first new solo album in more than decade, was released in the U.S. this week.  The album finds the 70-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer exploring an eclectic variety of styles with help from some well-known guest musicians, including such respected guitarists as Robin Trower, Phil Manzanera, Uli Jon Roth and Bernie Marsden.

Among the genres Jack tackles on the record are Caribbean-flavored pop, blues, introspective ballads, melodic mid-tempo rock and heavy rock.  "I've always liked so many different kinds of music and that's always shown up, especially in my solo albums," Bruce explained in a recent interview with ABC News Radio.

He pointed out that he used his first solo album, 1969's Songs to a Tailor, as a template for Silver Rails, noting that he was interested in putting together a similarly diverse collection of tunes.  "I thought this is now like the same thing, but it's more of a sideways look, if you like," Jack said.

Bruce also told ABC News Radio that the timing of the recording sessions luckily fit in well with the schedules of his guest musicians.

"All of the solo guitar players -- the songs were really written with them in mind," he noted, and pretty much all the people I approached were free and willing to do it."

Bruce collaborated on most of the tracks with his longtime lyricist Pete Brown, with whom he's been writing songs since 1966 during his early days in Cream.

"I think he's done a tremendous job on this album.  I think he's written about seven of the lyrics," said Bruce.  "And I think we're probably about the longest still-running songwriting partnership, certainly in [the U.K.]"

He singled out the song "Reach for the Night" as a particularly insightful set of lyrics penned by Brown.  "I think he's succeeded in coming up with a little kind of potted biography of the darker side of my life," said Bruce.  "He's very unique in the sense that he seems to know me so well.  He's able to write [things that,] although they're very personal, it's not upsetting when he writes them."

Jack also is happy with Silver Rails' lead track, "Candlelight," which he co-wrote with his wife, Margrit Seyffer.  "That was her first lyric that she's written," he pointed out.  "I just love those words."

Several versions of Silver Rails is available, including a standard CD, a two-disc deluxe edition containing a Making of Silver Rails documentary on DVD, and a vinyl LP.

Bruce currently has no shows scheduled, but he told ABC News Radio that he does plan to line up some dates in support of the new album, and hopes eventually to make his way back to North America sometime this year.

"The Voice" Recap: The Playoffs End with Usher Eliminating Two of His Artists

(l-r) T.J. Wilkins, Usher, Josh Kaufman, Bria Kelly; Trae Patton/NBCIt was the final night of the playoffs on The Voice on Tuesday night. All five artists from Team Usher performed in a bid to earn one of the remaining available spots in the live round.

Usher settled on Bria Kelly, Josh Kaufman and T.J. Wilkins, thereby eliminating Melissa Jiménez and Stevie Joe.

Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Shakira pared down their teams during the previous two episodes.

Here's what happened during Tuesday night's one-hour episode:

T.J. Wilkins got things started for Team Usher with a cover of "Tell Me Something Good," by Rufus and Chaka Khan. Shakira misspoke by saying T.J.'s ability to reach the high note was his "ace under his sleeve." Adam teased her for botching the idiom. Usher said T.J. nailed the playful nature of the period of time when "Tell Me Something Good" was released, the mid-1970s.

Melissa Jiménez delivered a stripped-down version of Beyoncé's "Halo." Shakira said it was a brave move to take a different approach to the popular song. Adam said there were some moments that were beautiful, but other moments during which Melissa ran into trouble. Blake added that Melissa didn't have enough breath for one particular note. Usher pointed out the effort that Melissa had put into the competition to that point.

Stevie Joe chose B.B. King's "The Thrill Is Gone." Blake joked that watching Stevie Joe perform is like watching him sneak up on a rabbit. He then declared that Stevie Joe is the "real deal." Shakira said he stretched certain notes for too long, but otherwise his performance was good. Usher commended Stevie Joe for the way he handled a song that's about heartache.

Bria Kelly took on The Rolling Stones classic "Wild Horses." Shakira wondered how Bria could reach the high notes and be so sultry. Blake observed a softer side to Bria's vocals that is "golden." Usher applauded her for making the song her own.

For the final performance of the playoff round, Josh Kaufman sang Bruno Mars' "It Will Rain." His former coach, Adam, said he's so relieved Josh was stolen from him because he deserves to be in the competition. Blake said Josh is a favorite of his and his wife, Miranda Lambert. Usher credited Adam for helping mold Josh as an artist.

The episode ended with Usher keeping Bria, Josh and T.J. on his team.

Here's a rundown of the remaining artists on the other three teams:

Team Adam: Christina Grimmie, Delvin Choice and Kat Perkins.

Team Blake: Sisaundra Lewis, Audra McLaughlin and Jake Worthington.

Team Shakira: Tess Boyer, Kristen Merlin and Dani Moz.

Next Monday night on NBC, The Voice will begin its live round.

Jethro's Tull's Ian Anderson Releases New Concept Album, "Homo Erraticus"

Calliandra RecordsIn 2012, Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson released Thick as a Brick II, a sequel to his band's 1972 concept album that was based on a poem written by a fictional eight-year-old boy named Gerald Bostock.  Now, the singer has recorded a new chapter to Bostock's saga, an album titled Homo Erraticus, which hit stores on Tuesday.

According to the scenario created by Anderson, Bostock went on to have a 40-year political career before becoming Ian's tour manager.  Homo Erraticus is a collection of songs that the fictional Gerald supposedly co-wrote with Anderson inspired by an unpublished manuscript penned by a fictional amateur historian named Ernest T. Parritt -- who was born in 1865 and died 1928.  Parritt's work takes a look at major events in British history while prophesying what would come to pass in the present day and the future.  Perhaps to help fans understand the convoluted concept behind the album, Anderson has launched a new website dedicated to the project, HomoErraticus.com.

Describing Homo Erraticus in a recent Billboard interview, Anderson says, "I slightly jokingly say it's a folk-prog-metal album with classical music and folk music influences.  We have a rich arrangement of essentially rock music, but with lots of elements which are part and parcel of my style, I suppose."

Ian also revealed to Billboard that he pretty much has decided to retire the Jethro Tull name.  "It's a body of work I rather think is now kind of historical, since the weight of it lies back in the '70s and '80s in terms of volume," he explained.  "And I rather think it's nice to kind of leave that as legacy."

Anderson has lined up a 30-plus-date fall U.S. tour with his solo band in support of Homo Erraticus that will kick off September 12 in Seattle and is mapped out through a November 10 concert in Montclair, New Jersey. Each show will feature a full performance of the new album, as well as a set of classic Jethro Tull material.

Here is the full list of Anderson's confirmed solo U.S. dates:

9/12 -- Seattle, WA, McCaw Hall
9/13 -- Goldendale, WA, Maryhill Winery Amphitheater
9/15 -- Redding, CA, Cascade Theater
