Music Notes: Collaborations, video gaga

You get a short and early music round-up today since I'll be heading out later today to see Franz Ferdinand in New York (a review will appear later this weekend):

- Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig appears on "The Songbird Athletic," the first single from Philly emcee Lushlife's upcoming Cassette City. It's a pretty chill summery track, and you can check it out at Stereogum. [Stereogum]

- Perry Farrell is excited for people to hear new tracks by Jane's Addiction, though there are no definite plans of when that will happen. He referred to one track, "Embrace the Darkness" as a festival anthem, and another track called "I'll Protect You" is about a pair of runaways. [Billboard]

- No Doubt performed "Just A Girl" on American Idol last night... I do hate saying it but Gwen's vocals have been seeming very off lately. You can watch and judge for yourself below:

- The U2 video for "Magnificent," the second single from No Line On the Horizon premiered yesterday. Watch below: [Yahoo! Music]
