A solo album from Jack White, one following up 2012’s Blunderbuss, had been rumored since earlier this year. But White remained on the fence, telling reporters that he had new music in the works, but not for any particular project. As a new Dead Weather single dropped this year, his statements could’ve gone either way.
But this week, White spilled the news with a post on his website announcing his second solo album. Called Lazaretto, the album comes out on June 10 in the U.S. through his own Third Man label.
Lazaretto also marks Third Man’s 20th package release, so the label has plans for a limited edition version – one, White is careful to note, will be the only other option to a standard album. […] Read more »
Rather than leave a three-year solo gap between releases (two years, if you count Watch The Throne), Kanye West appears to already be putting together a follow-up to last year’s successful Yeezus.
West’s plans, however, involve postponing the Australian leg of his tour. According to a press statement, West’s Australian tour is being moved from early in May to September this year. Promoters further commented that the news isn’t an April Fool’s prank.
The statement read: “Due to unexpected timing requirements to finish his highly anticipated new studio album, scheduled for a 2014 release, Kanye West regretfully announces the postponement of his upcoming tour dates in Australia.”[…] Read more »
A second posthumous Michael Jackson album – one following 2009’s Michael – has been in talks for some time, but this week, the details finally came out.
Called Xscape, the album comes out on May 13 through Epic Records. Eight previously unreleased tracks make up the album.
According to statements from L.A. Reid, having unlimited access to Michael Jackson’s full back catalog resulted in finding material spanning over four decades with completed vocals. But instead of putting out the music in unfinished form, Reid sent out the tracks to multiple producers, including Timbaland, to “contemporize” it.[…] Read more »
Earlier this year, a new Cure album, one following up 2008’s 4:13 Dream, had been announced, but with scant information revealed at the time. One significant point was, it’s essentially a sequel going by the name of 4:14 Scream, but in a recent XFM interview, frontman Robert Smith ultimately revealed he’s hesitant to have the project see the light of day
Why? According to Smith, the first release was made by a completely different band at a different time in their career. Smith explained: “This band is trying to make an album with this lineup, and it’s an album that I’m tempted to make, that’s really different to anything else we’ve done. […] Read more »
Rita Ora’s debut album, titled simply Ora, performed well in the U.K. two years ago, so right about now, it makes sense she’d start preparing for a sophomore album.
While there has been news of collaborations (most notably, Prince), we’ve had yet to hear new music. But this week, she previewed the lead-in single in full, a track called “I Will Never Let You Down.”
“I Will Never Let You Down” follows last year’s “Radioactive.” Reflective of her personal life is the fact that Calvin Harris – best known for dance music crossover songs like “Feel So Close” and “Bounce” – wrote and produced the track. […] Read more »
When what you know inspires you, Hot Chelle Rae penned a track about nights out with top pop stars like Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift.
In an interview with Us Weekly about their new single, “Don’t Say Goodnight,” the three-piece from Tennessee went into detail about being on tour with these huge stars. Guitarist Nash Overstreet, for instance, said that their most memorable times, these days, come from a night out on the town: "We have had so many experiences and almost all of them come from you forcing yourself to go out and really live. When we force ourselves to go out, that's when all the cool stuff happens; that's when all the memories get made."[…] Read more »
