Dillon Francis – Money Sucks, Friends Rule

Money Sucks

Money Sucks, Friends Rule is the debut album from Dillon Francis. Look forward to great club tracks and collabs with Major Lazer, Twista and mroe. The single Get Low can't be missed. [Electronic / Dance]

Taylor Swift – 1989

Taylor Swift

1989 is the fifth studio album from Taylor Swift. If you're a Swift fan you probably have been listening to this album all week, if you're not check out the single Shake It Off to get a feel for the album. You won't be streaming this on Xbox Video, but you can use the new Music Deals app to buy it real cheap. [Pop]

Devin Sinha – The Seventh Season

Seventh Season

Devin Sinha (@Giffdev) is a software engineer at Microsoft by day, but by night he makes indie/folk music. The Seventh Season is his new album and you can check it out this weekend on Xbox Music. I'm digging the second track called Lone Elm Road [Blues / Folk]

  • What scary movies are you guys watching this weekend?
  • I've already seen the exorcist (1973) uncut version and the shining, first time on both... Not bad
  • I like How I Met Your Mother, not really scary but I've recently gotten into it. However, I feel that tonight is a good time to work on my app that allows you to save the Cortana ringtones to your device with a simple metro UI
  • GROTESQUE <3
  • if you just want to look at sick shit with no story and substance, then yes
  • MONEY SUCKS FRIENDS RULE! DILLON FRANCIS SUCKS
  • Watched the Halo 2 documentary. Always loved the vid-docs Bungie used to release. This one was good too.
  • 1989 isn't in promotion anymore, but Black Veil Brides's new selftitled album is. Totally worthy.   And you stream music on Xbox Music, not Xbox Video! :-P
  • Black veil brides fucking sucks
  • I spy WPCentral watermark!
  • The day something that isn't terrible is recommended on Xbox Music will surely be the day of the apocalypse.
  • Sorry I switched to Spotify, Xbox music really sucks! My Xbox music pass expire on Nov17 but I dont care, I bought one month of Spotify. but Spotify app is outdated :(
  • Dillon Francis? YAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (The Scientist by Example is on repeat though) Taylor Swift? no.
  • Ps... Tell Jay the Android app is like broken :( has been for a while (no commenting or forums)
  • Geeeez, no metalheads at Windows Central??
  • Unfortunately, Sam appears to be a fan of pop music.
  • Y U No mention logics "under pressure". Best hip-hop release thie year #justfacts
  • Were we all supposed to scream at the iTunes ad at the end of the Great Pumpkin video? I did.
  • And again, Halo docu is still not findable in Xbox Video (located in Netherlands).
  • Whats up with the Halo docu? It is not available in the german XBox video store.
  • There is no option for me to check for new music albums and video. Why is that?
  • Re: Sam Sabri,
    Thank you for the weekly article. This is information I wouldn't normally be able to find about what is on sale on Xbox (formerly Zune) Music and Video. The opinions, both yours and the commenters, give me a good idea of what's new to try.
  • Thanks for featuring my album!  Big thanks to you all at WinCentral!  If anyone likes the tunes, let's talk about it on Twitter/Fb
