Roger Waters has confirmed to NME that he is looking to make a theatrical musical out of Pink Floyd's classic, The Wall, which he has been touring for the last few years. The singer said: "We've done workshops with it as a theatrical piece, and I suspect we'll see it sooner rather than later," Waters said. "I've been working with Lee Hall, who did Billy Elliot, writers and producers, and I think that team will put it on the stage first in London, then New York and then maybe it'll tour. People have been reduced to both laughter and tears in the workshops, which is a great sign."

Jesus and Mary Chain's Jim Reid has confirmed to Time Out New York that the band are indeed making a new album. He said: "We are! We're doing an album now. We actually just started recording. It's early days, but I would say it's a more mature sound for the Mary Chain. But let's just wait and see."
