Weird Al Yankovic, 'Perform This Way' -- New Song

Volcano Records

Weird Al Yankovic has released 'Perform This Way,' a parody of Lady Gaga's hit single 'Born This Way.' The song is featured on the comedic musician's new album, 'Alpocalypse.'

'Perform This Way' takes aim at Gaga's many styles, making mention of her famous bubble dress and saying that "everyday is Halloween." While he jokes about becoming a "human jellybean," the song stays true to the structure of the original pop track.

He sings, "I'm sure my critics will say it's a grotesque display / Well, they can bite me, baby, I perform this way / I might be wearin' Swiss cheese or maybe covered with bees / It doesn't mean I'm crazy; I perform this way."

Brad Paisley, 'Remind Me' Feat. Carrie Underwood -- New Song

Arista Nashville

Brad Paisley has released 'Remind Me,' a new duet with label mate Carrie Underwood. The song is the third single from Paisley's new album, 'This Is Country Music.'

The tune is sung from the perspective of two lovers who are reminiscing about the time when their relationship was strong. Paisley and Underwood take turns calling out sentimental moments, asking to be reminded of the better times.

"Do you remember how it used to be / We'd turn out the lights and we didn't just sleep / Remind me, baby remind me / Oh so on fire so in love / that look in your eyes that I miss so much / Remind me, baby remind me."

Incubus, 'Promises, Promises' -- New Song

Epic

Incubus have released 'Promises, Promises,' a new song from the band's forthcoming album, 'If Not Now, When?,' due out on July 12.

The California rockers mellow out with this down-tempo, piano-fronted love song, which incorporates deliberate simple instrumentation to help highlight its strengths, says lead singer Brandon Boyd.

"The song is our homage to the pop songs of yester-morrow," he tells Noisecreep. "Referencing the deservedly ubiquitous artists of our parents' generation, we are here attempting to craft an artisan's clock. A piece that ticks effortlessly on the strength of its good design, its beauty and its simplicity."

Gym Class Heroes, 'Stereo Hearts' Feat. Adam Levine -- New Song

Decaydance

Gym Class Heroes are back with a brand-new single called 'Stereo Hearts,' featuring Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine.

The Benny Blanco-produced track is the first single from the alt hip-hop group's forthcoming album, 'The Papercut Chronicles II,' due out later this year.

The song begins with Levine's distinctive voice singing an undeniably catchy hook. He croons, "My heart's a stereo / It beats for you, so listen close / Hear my thoughts in every note / Make me your radio and turn me up when you are low / This melody was meant for you to sing along to my stereo."

Pitbull, 'Rain Over Me' Feat. Marc Anthony -- New Song

Sony

Pitbull has teamed up with Marc Anthony to release 'Rain Over Me,' a new song from the rapper's soon-to-be-released album 'Planet Pit," due out on June 21.

The Miami native enlists the help of the Latin singer on the hook of the dance track, which is bound to be a mainstay in clubs all over. Anthony sings:

"Girl my body don't lie / I'm outta my mind / Let it rain over me / I'm rising so high / Out of my mind / So let it rain over me."

Perhaps Anthony's appearance on the track is a return favor for Pitbull's verse on his wife Jennifer Lopez's hit single 'On the Floor.' Either way, the collaboration is a winning combination.

Weezer, 'You Might Think' -- New Song

Disney

Weezer have released a cover of The Cars' hit song 'You Might Think,' which is featured on the 'Cars 2' soundtrack, due out on June 14.

The pop rockers put a new spin on the 1984 smash, which is all-too-befitting for the animated Disney sequel, set to open in theaters 10 days after the release of the soundtrack on Friday, June 24.

"The song is going to play in the scene where Lightning McQueen and Mater go to Japan, which is great for us because it sort of mirrors our experiences in Japan -- there was a little bit of culture shock," says guitarist Brian Bell.

Limp Bizkit, 'Gold Cobra' -- New Song

Interscope

Limp Bizkit have released the title track from their sixth studio album,' Gold Cobra,' due out on June 28.

The heavy rock jam is another bombastic track from the nu metal group, which covers everything from doing time to paying bills.

It's easy to picture frontman Fred Durst with his shoulders back and chest puffed out, rapping: "You gettin' nothin' while I rock here in Hollywood / I tell you something else, you can take it to the bank / I don't give a f--- what none ya'll people think."
