David Duchovny's "Hell or Highwater" is out in May.David Duchovny, best known for his starring roles in "The X-Files" and "Californication," has announced he's got a debut album on the way, the latest in a long line of actors to take the leap into music.

With time between the end of his run on "Californication" and the upcoming series "Atlantis" (plus a recently announced "X-Files" revival), he's now turned his attention to music, with the album "Hell or Highwater" due out May 12 from ThinkSay Records and a lead single now out on iTunes. Johansson released her debut album, "Anywhere I Lay My Head," in 2008, offering up a collection of Tom Waits covers plus one original song.

Spotify launches today on PS4 and PS3 with PlayStation Music

Yahoo! Music News - Mon, 03/30/2015 - 17:00

Spotify launches today on PS4 and PS3 with PlayStation MusicMusic playback on PlayStation consoles gets a boost today with the arrival of PlayStation Music featuring Spotify, which replaces Sony's Music Unlimited service. The app is launching in 41 markets worldwide, allowing most of Spotify's 60 million users — three-fourths of whom use the ad-supported free version of the service — to stream music while they play games on their PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4. You can use PlayStation Music completely for free: It doesn't require a PlayStation Plus membership, and you can use it with a free Spotify account or Spotify Premium, which costs $9.99 per month. Representatives for Sony and Spotify told Polygon during a demo of the PS4 app last week that the two companies worked together closely on PlayStation Music, and it shows: "Seamless" is the best word we can think of to describe the experience.
