Today's batch of the web's best links include new songs from Ladyhawke, Scribe and Die Antwoord, trailers for Project X and Jeff, Who Lives at Home, and Miley Cyrus covering a Bob Dylan song. Oh no she didn't.

1. "I was like a zombie." That's how Ladyhawke described her mental state after finishing up touring her first album a couple of years back. So we should be thankful we now have the first real taste of her follow-up, with the poppy single Black White and Blue hitting the web today. It's got a great guitar solo, a super-hummable chorus, and will stick in your brain for days. Job done, then. (via Twitter)

2. Why have Scribe's fingers been replaced by Freddy Krueger knives? Isn't he sweating under that leather jacket in the desert? And why does Scribble have to mention the word "balls" in his intro? Just three of the many, many questions arising from the new Scribe-guested video, So Long remix featuring K.One.

(Stuff)

3. Here's the ridiculously grotesque trailer for Die Antwoord's new album, including a scene in which singer Ninja rips a beast's heart out with her bare hands. Consider yourself warned. (Pitchfork)

4. It looks like a cross between The Hangover and SuperBad. If Project X can get close to either of those two films, it should be a riot. The film's about one of those high school parties that spirals way out of control thanks to social media - check out the trailer to see scenes of the madness. (nzherald.co.nz)

5. Here's a pop culture clash that probably shouldn't have happened: Disney is selling Mickey Mouse T-shirts inspired by Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures album art. Umm, righto. (Pitchfork)

6. Jason Segel and Susan Sarandon star in Jeff, Who Lives at Home, a new comedy from Jay and Mark Duplass (the dudes behind Cyrus). Looks, er, warped. (Apple)

7. Oh no she didn't. Oh yes she did - Miley Cyrus has done the unthinkable and covered a Bob Dylan song. She's recorded You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go for the album Chimes of Freedom: Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International. At least it's for charity. (Billboard)

8. Strippers, drug use and offensive language - needless to say, this video for hyped rapper A$AP Rocky's Wassup is most definitely NSFW. It's a great track from a great mixtape - let's hope we get a full-length album soon. (Pitchfork)

9. Here's a nice newbie from Kid Cudi and Chip tha Ripper called GloryUs. It's from Ripper's free mixtape Tell Ya Friends, and with an insane album cover like that, you should definitely check it out. (Twitter)

10. First it was KoRn, now Cypress Hill have gone all dubstep on us. Their new EP is produced by Rusko, and it features the single Roll It, Light It. Who's gonna be next? Justin Bieber vs Skrillex? (NME)
