– Beck, Dan Deacon, Amon Tobin, Memory Tapes and ex-Battles member Tyondai Braxton are among the musicians contributing to ‘Rework: Philip Glass Remixed,’ a compilation album featuring a dozen remixes and alternate versions of tunes from the contemporary composer. The disc drops Oct. 23.
Pearl Jam should be finishing up work on a new album by the end of the year, if comments Matt Cameron made during a recent interview with Rhythm magazine are to be taken at face value. The drummer, who these days also sits behind the drum kit for Soundgarden, spoke of a busy rest of the year that involves plans with both — recording an album with one band, and touring behind a new album with the other.
– Jack White shut the door on another Lollapalooza with the final headlining gig on Sunday night, turning in a reportedly raucous and rousing performance at that touched on the White Stripes, the Raconteurs and Dead Weather in addition to his recent solo albu
– The Killers are known for their love of Bruce Springsteen, but the iconic sounds of another classic American rocker also rubbed off on their forthcoming ‘Battle Born’ album, which drops Sept. 18. ”The Tom Petty flavor is in us,” says drummer Ronnie Vannucci, Jr.
The Stone Roses reportedly are working on material for a new album and plan to release it some time in 2013. The veteran British rockers, who reunited last year for a series of gigs after more than 15 years apart, haven’t released an album since their 1994 sophomore set, ’Second Coming.’
The sport of basketball is biggest in America, but its popularity at this summer’s Olympics in London proves that it’s still growing internationally. That global reach is reflected on the soundtrack to the forthcoming ‘NBA 2K13′ video game, which includes Irish rockers U2 and Brits Coldplay on a track listing that features a vastly diverse offering of music, both geographically and genre-wise.
Ahead of their forthcoming barrage of three new albums known as ‘¡Uno!,’ ‘¡Dos!’ and ‘¡Tres!,’ Green Day will treat their especially dedicated uber-fans with the release of a box set featuring all eight of their previous full-length studio albums. Titled, appropriately, ‘The Studio Albums 1990-2009,’ the set will be available exclusively through Best Buy retailers on Sept. 4.
Just a few days after Lana Del Rey turned in a cover of Nirvana’s ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ during a concert in Sydney, Australia (check it out here), Courtney Love took to Twitter to point out something to LDR that neither the she nor the rest of the general public reading Love’s tweets would really care to hear: that ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ is about Courtney Love’s vagina.
Green Day have released a live video for the tune ‘Let Yourself Go’ that was recorded on Nov. 17 of last year at a venue called the Red 7 in Austin, Texas. It’s a track off the band’s upcoming album, ‘¡Uno!,’ which hits stores on Sept. 25 via Reprise and is the first release from a trilogy that includes ‘¡Dos!’ (out Nov. 13) and ‘¡Tres!’ (due Jan. 15).
Mad Season — the grunge-era, Seattle-based supergroup that featured current and former members of Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Screaming Trees and the Walkabouts — released just one album before singer Layne Stayley left the band in 1997. The death of bassist John Baker Saunders two years later seemed to put them to rest for good, but Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, who also played guitar in Mad Season, has announced that the group is reforming with former Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan taking over lead vocals.
Guitarist Mike McCready of Pearl Jam was recruited to provide the score for ’Fat Kid Rules the World,’ the cinematic directorial debut of actor Matthew Lillard. The flick, which is based on the novel of the same title by K. L. Going, is being rolled out to theaters in a very D.I.Y.-like manner via Tugg.com, a collective action web platform that enables individuals to choose which theaters will screen it.
The Wallflowers return this October with ‘Glad All Over,’ their first new album since 2005′s ‘Rebel, Sweatheart,’ and eager fans can get a taste of things to come with ‘Reboot the Mission.’ The disc’s first single mines some unusual territory for the Wallflowers — namely, dub-tinged reggae — but if that seems a bit strange, the person they recruited to help certainly makes sense: former Clash icon Mick Jones.
