On her Beats 1 show, “Mixtape Delivery Service“, St. Vincent’s Annie Clark creates mixtapes based on suggestions from fans. Her latest: A mixtape for Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme, who requested an Iggy Pop mixtape. Check out a preview for the “Iggy Pop Special” episode below.

Apparently it was a pretty good career move for Hozier to allow his song “Arsonist’s Lullabye” to be used in the March 6 episode of “The Walking Dead.”

Hozier‘s “Arsonist’s Lullabye” had a 3,000 percent gain in sales the week after the episode ran. It also set a record on the music-identifying app Shazam for the most tags on a single song, with 195,000. “Arsonist’s Lullabye” was used in the trailer for season 6 of The Walking Dead last summer.
