Radiohead have confirmed they will release their new album on Sunday. The yet-to-be announced ninth LP will have a physical release next month.

Radiohead are also planning a massive vinyl reissue. Their entire back catalogue was recently acquired by XL Recordings and on May 20, the label and band will release the vinyl reissues.

Pink Floyd will also have a reissue campaign this year. The iconic band will begin rolling out their first four albums on fresh wax later this spring, while their other studio releases will be put out in intervals throughout the year.

Timbaland has announced his final album will come as the soundtrack to the scripted hip-hop musical Opera Noir. The musical "will follow a young musician's rise to the top and hardships along the way–including struggles with poverty, substance abuse and crime," according to a press release. No release date has been set.

Justin Timberlake has confirmed to Carson Daly on his radio show that he is working on new music. Timberlake said: "I don't know exactly when I'm going to put it out but yeah, I'm definitely working on a new album."

De La Soul's new album, the Kickstarter-funded and the Anonymous Nobody..., was set to arrive this month. However, the long awaited LP will come in August. In the meantime, the hip-hop legends have released an EP called For Your Pain & Suffering--you can hear it HERE.
