Quick News

Odd Future, who allegedly split-up earlier this summer, are reuniting already at Tyler The Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in November.

Adele, who shares the same record label and boss as Damon Albarm, Richard XL of XL Recordings, asked the Blur frontman to work with the songstress on her upcoming album. Albarn spilled the beans to The Mirror and said:  "Adele asked me to work with her and I took the time out for her. And I’m not a producer, so… I don’t know what is happening really. Will she use any of the stuff? I don’t think so. Let’s wait and see. The thing is, she’s very insecure. And she doesn’t need to be, she’s still so young." He also said he heard some of her latest recordings and called them "middle of the road."Adele's latest is reportedly arriving in November.

New Order's Gillian Gilbert spoke to BrooklynVegan about rejoining the band and their upcoming LP. She told the site: "Compared to the end of New Order, certainly when I left, this is quite refreshing. Everybody seems to be adult about this new lineup. We're doing everything in sort of small chunks. When we started up again we didn't know how how people would respond to it. We did those benefit gigs in 2011, we just wanted to see how we'd gel. With Hooky leaving, it left a big hole, really. But it's been really exciting and quite liberating. When we toured in 2013 we didn't have a new album, we didn't have anything to promote. It was a bit like starting again. Now we've got a new record label..things have changed. It wasn't like going back to the old New Order. I think it was time to come back. I certainly did miss it. I've been doing a lot of other things, but not sort-of band stuff. It's been fun going back to concentrating on music and the band." The band are releasing their first album in a decade later this month.
