Quick News

Sad news to report, New York City electronic indie punks The Rapture have broken up.

Morrissey has released the title of his upcoming album which will be out later this year. The record will be called, World Peace Is None Of Your Business.

HBO will air a 30-minute documentary about Bruce Springsteen's latest album, High Hopes, just days before members of The E-Street Band will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The latest installment of Converse's Three Artist's series, which takes three artists from various genres and has them craft a song together, will continue with the latest installment that will feature Frank Ocean, Diplo, and The Clash's Mick Jones and Paul Simonon. The song will be available for free on March 10 via Converse's Tumblr page. In a press statement, Diplo said, "The Clash were always teachers to me, even before I shared a studio with Paul and Mick. Their musical anarchy and constant attitude to disregard rules and forge their own path was inspirational to me. They meant death to genres, music and message above everything. Frank lives by the same creed in being married to his vision and seeing it through at any cost. We had to challenge each other to make something that we hope no one could expect and Converse valued everyone's artistic freedom to let us shine throughout the past few months to make this thing happen."

It has just been confirmed that Lady Gaga will be delivering SXSW's Keynote Address. SXSW kicked off on Thursday in Austin, Texas.

According to reports, U2 will delay their much anticipated new album to 2015.

This comes after the band spent nearly a year working with Danger Mouse. Reports also confirm that the band are delaying their much anticipated tour by a year as well.
