first_img[Video: The Late Late Show with James Corden]Beck was back in the music headlines recently as he’s one of the notable musicians who will appear on Jenny Lewis‘ forthcoming studio album, On The Line. Beck also recently collaborated with hard rock band Cage The Elephant on one of their own new singles, “Night Running”, which will be released soon.Fans can click here to pre-order Music Inspired By The Film Roma ahead of its arrival on Friday via Sony Music Masterworks. Beck was at CBS Studios on Monday to perform his recently-shared cover of “Tarantula”, which was inspired by the Oscar-nominated film, Roma. The popular alternative rocker had initially recorded his cinematic cover of Colourbox’s new-wave single alongside Leslie Feist and Alex Lilly for the forthcoming compilation album, Music Inspired By The Film Roma, although it’s worth noting that the song actually has no affiliation with the hit movie. The compilation album is scheduled to arrive this Friday, February 8th, so Beck’s performance on Monday came just in time to give fans a live look into their reimagined version of the 1983 single.Beck, Feist, and Lilly were joined for the televised performance by Natasha Khan (Bat For Lashes), Inara George (The Bird And The Bee), and The LA Philharmonic, which was conducted by the orchestra’s music director, Gustavo Dudamel. Interestingly enough, the film’s director, Alfonso Cuarón, was also on set to help introduce the night’s musical guests.The performance opens up with the orchestra taking the listener right into the world of the song via the warmth of their string section, before Beck steps to the mic to start on the lyrics. With all the pop-based artists who typically come on as late-night show musical guests, it is refreshing to see and hear a performance based around orchestra-based instrumentation and relaxing group vocals.

The subcommittee will conduct a hearing on the TCPA Thursday, starting at 11 a.m. (ET).CUNA’s concerns arise from a July 2015 Federal Communications Commission omnibus declaratory ruling and order for the TCPA, which it believes is problematic and has impacted credit unions’ ability to communicate with members about pertinent account information.“We support the concept of preserving consumers’ rights to privacy on their cell phones and protecting financial information; however, the FCC’s Order goes far beyond the scope or purpose of the TCPA, which was enacted in 1991 when a cell phone was considered a luxury item and smartphones were still years away from production,” CUNA’s letter reads.Specific concerns include:The order’s immediate adverse impact, which has caused disarray and exposed credit unions to frivolous litigation. The ruling created obstacles to credit unions’ ability to contact members, particularly small credit unions, which CUNA believes is contrary to congressional intent;last_img read more
