Quick News

Kanye West has confirmed that his new album won't be called So Help Me God, but instead will be called SWISH.

According to Montage of Heck director Brett Morgan, a Kurt Cobain solo album will arrive this summer. No confirmation from Cobain's estate on this or an actual release date has been set.

Damon Albarn recently dropped a hint that he and Noel Gallagher discussed the possibility of working together. Now, Noel is disputing the claim in a recent Reddit AMA session, when asked about the idea, he said, "The thing with Damon was a flippant comment as casually thrown around as 'We should go for a drink.' As for makin' an album, I would be amazed if either of us ever had the time to make that work."

While we wait for that possibility, one of Blur's biggest critics, Noel's brother Liam, has taken to Twitter to praise Blur's single "Lonesome Street." Liam tweeted:

The documentary Buena Vista Social Club is getting a sequel. The 1999 Oscar nominated film followed the past of legendary Cuban musicians from the Buena Vista Social Club in Havana, as they reassemble and perform in New York and out of Cuba for the first time. Now, Buena Vista Social Club - Adios, will begin filming in July and will follow the band on their farewell tour this summer and fall.

Miguel will release his new album, Wildheart, this summer.

While this will come as a surprise and no surprise at all, Miley Cyrus and The Flaming Lips are releasing a collaborative seven-song album later this year. Wayne Coyne of The Lips told Rolling Stone "Some of it reminds me of Pink Floyd and Portishead."
