Stardog Records/Republic RecordsJohn Mellencamp, Jackson Browne and Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham are featured on the official soundtrack to the Showtime series Roadies, which was just released digitally and will be available for purchase as a physical album Friday, September 2. The record is made up almost entirely of new live performances by various artists, many of whom made cameo appearances on the show.

Music from the Showtime Original Series Roadies includes Buckingham performing the 1987 Fleetwood Mac hit "Big Love," Mellencamp singing his 2008 song "Longest Days," and Browne teaming up with alt-pop duo Lucius and veteran Americana guitarist Greg Leisz for a rendition of Little Feat's "Willin'."

Other artists featured on the soundtrack include Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder, My Morning Jacket, Robyn Hitchcock and Gary Clark Jr.

Roadies creator, writer and director Cameron Crowe explains of the show's music, "Great care was taken that the songs chosen for each artist have another meaning, a thread to our story or characters. The only rule was: no lip-syncing to playback. Not even to live versions recorded in a previous take. These would be authentic live performances. Real performances. That's where the magic happens, for an audience and even a crew."

The finale of Roadies' debut season airs Sunday, August 28, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The episode will feature appearances by Browne, Vedder, Hitchcock, Lucius, Clark Jr., My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James and more.

Roadies, which stars Luke Wilson, Carla Gugino and Imogen Poots, takes a humorous look at a group of music-loving roadies and their lives working behind-the-scenes in the concert industry.

Here is the full track list of the Roadies soundtrack:

"I Wish I Was Sober (Roadies Remix)" -- Frightened Rabbit ft. Mike McCready
"Are You Satisfied?" (Live) -- Reignwolf
"Big Love" (Live) -- Lindsey Buckingham
"The First Time" -- My Morning Jacket
"Born Again Teen" (Live) -- Lucius
"Longest Days" (Live) -- John Mellencamp
"Feeling OK" (Live) -- Best Coast
"Simple Man" (Live) -- Machine Gun Kelly

Monica Morgan/WireImage Patti LaBelle is expanding her dessert line at Walmart after the sweet success of her signature sweet potato pies.

The Grammy-winning singer has created five new desserts that'll be available exclusively at Walmart starting Tuesday. The delectable lineup includes Patti's Good Life Peach Cobbler, Berry Cobbler, Apple Cobbler, Apple Pecan Cake and Sweet Potato Loaf.

According to People magazine, LaBelle tapped into her family's recipes as well as her own concoctions in the kitchen to create the signature dishes. "I've been cooking for most of my life. As you're standing in the kitchen and you think of certain ingredients, you just put them in -- sometimes they work, and sometimes they don't," she said.

In 2015, Patti's sweet potato pies went viral when YouTube star James Wright Chanel recorded a video of him raving over her confection. His review essentially helped sell out Patti's signature pies in Walmart stores nationwide.

The new Patti LaBelle dessert assortment will be available online and in Walmart stores nationwide starting Tuesday, August 29.

Samir Hussein/Getty ImagesFleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham and guitarist Wendy Melvoin of Prince's old band The Revolution are among the artists who have contributed to Two Vines, the upcoming album by Australian alternative electronic group Empire of the Sun.

The band's third studio album is scheduled for an October 28 release, and can be pre-ordered now at iTunes, Amazon and Empire of the Sun's official online store.  Two Vines also features bassist Tim Lefebvre, a member of the jazz collective that backed David Bowie on the late rock legend's acclaimed 2016 album, Blackstar.

"The whole concept [of Empire of the Sun] was based around childhood fantasies; being in bed and staring at the posters on your wall, whether they were monster movies or outlandish rock stars or pieces of art," explains the group's co-founder Nicholas Littlemore. "We always wanted to be one of those posters on a child's wall that had so much imagination locked into it, a kind of invitation that pushes you over the edge into dream world. With this record, it's time to take that next step."

You can check out the video for Two Vines' first single, "High & Low," at the Empire of the Sun's VEVO YouTube channel.  The band's song "Walking on a Dream" got a lot of exposure recently in a Honda commercial.

Credit: Danny ClinchBruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are two shows through a three-concert engagement at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and so far, the run of dates has been one for the record books.

According to the respected Springsteen fan site Backstreets.com, the Boss' gig on Thursday night clocked in at just under four hours, making it the longest one he's ever played in the U.S.

The previous longest? That took place on Tuesday, at the first of Bruce's scheduled MetLife Stadium concerts, which ran three hours and 52 minutes. Thursday, Springsteen and the E Street Band played a career-spanning 33-song set that included a guest appearance by Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello on three tunes. During the show, Bruce dedicated "My City of Ruins" to the earthquake victims in Italy.

In addition, NJ.com reports Bruce acknowledged that the Thursday was "Born to Run birthday day" -- that is, the 41st anniversary of the classic album's release. During the concert's finale, "Jersey Girl," Springsteen brought a couple who just got engaged at the show onto the stage.

Speaking of birthdays, Bruce's marathon feat is even more impressive when you consider he turns 67 September 23.

Springsteen and the E Street Band's third MetLife Stadium concert is scheduled for this Tuesday, August 30, although they'll perform first at Chicago's United Center on Sunday. Bruce's The River Tour 2016 is scheduled wind down on September 14 in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

Incidentally, Springsteen longest concert of all time, according to Backstreets.com, happened on July 31, 2012, in Helsinki, Finland.  That one  ran four hours and five minutes.

Andrew Lipovsky/NBCBarbra Streisand stopped by The Tonight Show Thursday to plug her new Broadway tribute album, Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway. and while there, she joined "Donald Trump" -- played by host Jimmy Fallon -- for a duet on "Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better."

Fallon, in character as the Republican presidential nominee, opened the song by promising that he and Streisand will "make duets great again." In one verse, Jimmy's Trump crows, "Any wall you can build, I can build better."

In another verse, 74-year-old Streisand sang, "I can vote for Hillary," adding, "She's going to win huge."

"That is really, really low," the fake Trump responded, to which Barbra countered, "Are you talking about me, or your latest poll numbers?"

During an interview later, Streisand told Fallon that after 50 years in show business, people still mispronounce her last name -- the second "s" is soft. After learning that Siri -- Apple's computerized personal assistant -- also got it wrong, Barbra explained she went straight to the head of Apple, Tim Cook, and asked him to take care of it. He agreed, and Streisand said the pronunciation will be changed with the next update, on September 30. 

Afterwards, Streisand was joined by one of her duet partners on the album -- and Fallon's other guest on the show, former 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin -- for a performance of "The Best Thing that Has Happened."

Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway will be available Friday.

Courtesy of MSO PRSince founding Eagles singer/guitarist Glenn Frey's death this past January, the band's remaining members have focused on various other musical endeavors. Bassist Timothy B. Schmit recently announced plans to release a new solo album called Leap of Faith in September, and a song from the record titled "Red Dirt Road" has now premiered on the Rolling Stone Country website.

Schmit tells the magazine that the track's title is a reference to the soil found on the Hawaiian island of Kauai.

"There's some rich, deep soil there," he explains. "You have a good chance of growing a plumeria tree by just sticking a branch of a plumeria into the ground. It's unbelievable. That was the motivation."

The 68-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer adds that the song itself is "about trying to enjoy your life. You can go about your daily business and see it from sunup to sundown -- and see it in the best light possible, too -- and then just enjoy yourself."

Musically, "Red Dirt Road" boasts elements of various Americana genres, including traditional folk, bluegrass and Cajun, and features accordion played by famed Brian Wilson collaborator Van Dyke Parks.

Leap of Faith, a follow-up to Schmit's 2009 album Expando, will be released on September 23.

Atlantic/Swan SongThe Wall Street Journal's website is hosting an exclusive stream of a rare 1969 Led Zeppelin song called "Sunshine Woman" that will be featured on the upcoming compilation The Complete BBC Sessions, which will be released on September 16. The track is one of eight previously unreleased tunes included on the record, which is an expanded version of the band's 1997 BBC Sessions collection.

"Sunshine Woman" was recorded in London on March 16, 1969, and aired the following month on the BBC show World Service. The original BBC tape on which the track appeared was lost, but a private recording that emerged in the late 1990s serves as the source for the version featured on The Complete BBC Sessions.

The song, which has never appeared on any Led Zeppelin studio album, features wailing vocals and some bluesy harmonica from Robert Plant, along with pounding piano and a fiery Jimmy Page guitar solo.

The Complete BBC Sessions will be available in a variety of configurations, including a three-CD set, a five-LP package, a digital download and a super deluxe edition featuring both the three-CD and five-LP collections.

Kevin Winter/Getty Images via ABCMadonna knows how to make an entrance. The singer surprised an audience of about 400 people Wednesday night at a 25th anniversary screening of her tour documentary, Madonna: Truth or Dare.

The Queen of Pop, wearing a red off-the-shoulder dress, showed up unannounced at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art, where the screening was taking place.

"She came out to support Alek Keshishian, her longtime friend and director of the celebrated documentary," a source tells People.

Madonna also took the time to interact with fans and pose for photos. Her daughter, Lola, was there too.

"Surreal Moment! At the MOMA!!" Madonna wrote on Instagram. "So nice to watch a film in a museum. So many freedoms we take for granted that we did not have then. Thank you Alek Keshishian. We changed history with this film."

Madonna: Truth or Dare was first released in May of 1991. The then-controversial documentary followed the singer as she embarked on her Blond Ambition World Tour.

Credit: Tom RejzekJeff Beck recently released a limited-edition coffee-table book called BECK01 that focuses on the blues-rock legend's passion for both guitars and fast cars. The publication is packed with rare and captivating photos from throughout the lauded musician's life.

"Every one's a rarest picture that we can get," Beck tells ABC Radio about the images that appear in BECK01. "[There's] pretty amazing stuff in there."

Among the pics featured in BECK01 are some warts-and-all images that Jeff says he wish weren't in the book.

"There's some nasty pictures of the '60s, when I was not on top of the world, you might say," he explains, adding that "they encapsulate the misery I was going through at the time."

The 72-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer says he's "a sucker for photo albums, because your mind is actually interpreting things without the text."

That being said, BECK01 features a 350-page manuscript that includes Jeff's recollections about his childhood, his years with The Yardbirds and the various Jeff Beck Group incarnations, his solo endeavors and his many star-studded collaborations. It also boasts anecdotes about Beck's love of vintage American cars, which he collects and personally works on.

Beck tells ABC Radio that his love for rock 'n' roll music led directly to his interest in hot rods, and was tied to his fascination with American culture in general. He cites Rebel Without a Cause and the 1958 movie Hot Rod Gang as major inspirations, particularly the latter flick.

"I'd never had the chance to even think about going to America," he points out, "and then to see this on my local cinema, with these hot rods racing through the streets…I thought, 'This is me, thank you.'"

BERTRAND GUAY/AFP/Getty ImagesThe once-private estate owned by Prince, Paisley Park, in Chanhassen, Minnesota, will become open to the public beginning October 6. Last week, news that the estate would turn into a museum surfaced, and it's now been confirmed by both Prince's surviving family and the trust company overseeing his estate, Bremer Trust.  

"Opening Paisley Park is something that Prince always wanted to do and was actively working on," says Prince's sister, Tyka Nelson.

Credit: Sue GodleyFormer 10cc singer/keyboardist and award-winning video director Kevin Godley has launched a new website focusing on his wide-ranging career as a creative artist.

The site, Kevin-Godley.com, features some previously unreleased content, including a new video of him performing the 1974 10cc song "Somewhere in Hollywood" and a new track, "Expecting a Message," that he recorded with French electronic music producer Luke Mornay.

Godley reveals that he created the "Somewhere in Hollywood" video after 10cc singer/guitarist Graham Gouldman asked him if he would sing the song on the band's upcoming U.K. tour.  Godley had no interest in re-joining the band, so he came up with another solution to help Gouldman out.

As he explains, "It's a complex song and a bastard to perform live so I offered to re-record the vocal to minimal instrumentation and make a film of myself singing it so the band could accompany my projected image on stage."

Godley's website also offers a biographical page, examples of his artwork, other videos he directed and links to purchase his 2015 interactive memoir SPACECAKE and his recent audio movie project Hog Fever.

"Creatively I'm all over the place but, as of now, I'm all over the one place," Kevin says of the website. "Kevin-godley.com isn't a museum, it's a ME-seum. Music, film clips, drawings, facts, figures, histories and futures."

Besides being an original member of 10cc, Godley perhaps is best-known as half of the duo Godley & Creme, which he formed with his 10cc band mate and longtime friend Lol Creme.  Their best known song was the top 20 hit "Cry," whose groundbreaking video featured some then-amazing face-morphing special effects.
