Videos of the Day – week of 11/25

11/25 – the new Bruce Springsteen song (well, it’s a new version of a 90s b-side, this time feat. Tom Morello who suggested they should add the song to their live setlist) and video have been unveiled today!  The album High Hopes will be out Jan. 14 & features what Springsteen calls “some of our best unreleased material from the past decade.”

11/26 – some may say the rest of Icona Pop’s album, “This Is…Icona Pop” sounds too similar to “I Love It,” rendering them a one-hit wonder, but I think there’s still a few smash hits to be heard on there!?  Here’s their brand-new video for “Just Another Night”

11/27 – as Thanksgiving approaches, looking back on this year of concerts, I’m so thankful I got to witness the Bonnaroo Rock’n’Soul Superjam firsthand this summer!  Here’s the most recent installment of their video series, with highlights & behind-the-scenes footage of the set!

11/28 – Happy Thanksgiving & first full day of Hannukkah!  That calls for some Adam Sandler, dontcha think?  Did you know there was a part 3?

Check out the version he did on SNL here (it wouldn’t embed for some reason)

11/29 – support Record Store Day on Black Friday – lots of special (and in most cases, limited-edition) releases!  And to take us into the weekend, here’s a new video from former Cardigans singer Nina Persson.  She’s got a new solo album coming out in Feb.!
