Haim have shared the cover to their new album, Something to Tell You. Take a look at it, above.

The National will release their new album, Sleep Well Beast, in September.

Radiohead's Thom Yorke is going to score his first film. The remake of the Italian horror classic Susperia, will be directed by Luca Guadgnino and will star Tilda Swinton. No word as to when the film will arrive but Yorke has some shoes to fill as the horror band Goblin made their name with the original and classic score.

Academy Award winning director Steve McQueen will helm an upcoming documentary on Tupac which has been approved by the late rapper's estate. “I am extremely moved and excited to be exploring the life and times of this legendary artist,” McQueen said in a press release. “I attended NYU film school in 1993 and can remember the unfolding hip-hop world and mine overlapping with Tupac’s through a mutual friend in a small way. Few, if any shined brighter than Tupac Shakur. I look forward to working closely with his family to tell the unvarnished story of this talented man.” No word as to when the film will arrive.

Phoenix will provide the score for Sofia Coppola's new film, The Beguiled, which is slated to arrive later in the year. Phoenix frontman, Thomas Mars, is married to Coppola. 

Gorillaz may have just released their new album, Humanz, but the animated band are already talking about making new music. In an interview with UK's Channel 4, artist Jamie Hewlett said: "There has to be a gap between the albums because they’re quite exhausting. They take a lot of work. But we’re already talking about the next album, so there might not be a gap this time… It starts with one idea. Like, there’s a conversation one night, you have one idea a sentence, and that is the basis for a whole album. And then we never talk again until it’s finished. And we had that one idea again the other night. So we have to get started on the next one."
