Kanye West is set to give away a new free track each Friday via twitter (follow him @kanyewest). Starting this Friday 8/27 through Christmas, fans will get a free download from Mr. West. His latest untitled record will drop in November.

Pink Floyd's David Gilmour is set to make a rare vocal contribution to The Orb's latest, Metallic Spheres. The album is due October 4.

Ladies and gentlemen it is now official! After six longs years - THE LIBERTINES ARE BACK! Pete, Carl and the boys played their first official reunion gig last night in London at an HMV in preparation for this weekends headlining slots at Reading and Leeds festival. Carl Barat said to NME after the gig, "It's been six years of stasis, but then you get back in the room and it's like the six years haven't happened," he explained. You remember all these different facets of your friends, the good and the bad, but I've mainly forgotten the good. It's pretty electric the chemistry it hasn't really changed a bit. It's exciting." We hope it sticks!
