It's a foregone conclusion that the week belongs to Taylor Swift and her new album, 1989, which finds the star leaving her country roots behind and fully embracing a modern pop sound. Also out this week is With a Little Help From My Fwends from the Flaming Lips, a track-by-track reworking of the Beatles' classic Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, featuring guest appearances from Miley Cyrus, Maynard Keenan of Tool, Tegan and Sara and more. We also talked to Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne about making the record, so be sure to check that out. And finally, the Led Zeppelin reissue series rumbles on with Led Zeppelin IV and Houses of the Holy, both featuring a second disc that duplicates the original running order of the albums' but with alternate edits, mixes and demo versions.
