Sir Paul McCartney is set to release a new album in 2012. The yet-to-be titled LP will be released in February and will feature the help of Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder. Macca plans to have the record be full of songs that inspired his childhood, as well as two new songs.

After the break-up of Grinderman earlier this month, Nick Cave is going to link up with The Bad Seeds again. Bad Seed / Ginderman member Jim Sclavunos told Faster, Louder that "We have kind of neglected Bad Seeds of late... It’s been about four years since we have done anything and I think it's high time we made some beautiful music together, again." The band's last record was 2008's Dig, Lazarus, Dig!

Blur member Alex James has given some big news to fans of the band, confirming that the Britpop band will play at next year's Brit Awards. The Blur bassist told XFM that "We're going to play, which is brilliant, it's like putting the Blues Brothers back together."
