Perry Farrell is speaking to Rolling Stone about the latest Jane's Addiction record arriving this summer with David Sitek of TV on the Radio on Bass. Farrell says that the latest record is tentivley titled, The Great Escape Artist and says "It's a strange mixture of that post-punk Goth darkness that Jane's had with what's going on today with groups like Muse and Radiohead. As much as I want to appease fans and make old Jane's fans love me, I just can't help myself from moving forward."

In the world of things that make perfect sense, the 2007 hit film, Once is coming to Broadway. The film, which made Swell Season Oscar Winners and international superstars is set to hit the Great White Way this fall.

La Roux's Elly Jackson is giving some insight into the band's sophomore debut. She tells NME that she is working with an "Established" indie band. Though no more details emerged as to who the band are.

Surfer Blood have muscial ambitions for the new year. The band are reported to be ditching their lo-fi sound for their follow-up to last years fantastic, Astro Coast. Surfer Blood member JP Pitts also tells NME that "We never intended to be lo-fi anyway," Pitts explained. "Our songs are all quite big songs, it's just that they were recorded on shitty equipment, in my apartment. They were lo-fi by accident. The main difference next time around will be that I won't be recording the entire thing in my apartment." The album is due out later this year.

Speaking of changing sounds, The Big Pink are said to be going in more of a hip-hop direction for their second album.
