Taylor Swift

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Taylor Swift, aka the only artist OF ALL TIME that’s loved by all living Americans right now (says one study), is to give the proceeds from her new ‘1989’ single ‘Welcome To New York’ to NY public schools. She said it on the latest episode of ‘The View’, so it must be true. Long live Taylor Swift!

• The first track in a while by Jack White and Alison Mosshart’s shared band The Dead Weather has blown in like… erm, a cold front. And that’s my first and last go at making a weather joke, I hope you all liked it. ‘Buzzkill(er)’ and B-side ‘It’s Just Too Bad’ will be available to buy on 4 Nov. Hear the former now.

• Lil Wayne’s ‘Tha Carter V’ LP has a new release date… or at least, the first part of it does. Apparently there’ll be several instalments. Aaaanyway, look for part one on 9 Dec, if that date even sticks. Here’s a video of Lil Wayne explaining (not really) what’s going on.

• Tulisa’s back! With a new single! Featuring Fazer! And a video! In which she wears barely anything! View ‘Living Without You’ here.

• David Gilmour of soon-to-expire Pink Floyd fame has confirmed in a fireside chat with Rolling Stone that he is working on a new solo LP. “It’s coming along very well”, he tells RS, adding: “There’s a few months’ work in it yet. I’m hoping to get it out this following year. Then I’m hoping to do an old man’s tour, not a 200-date sort of thing”. Good to know.

• Experimental electronic pop artist and CMU approved alumnus Jonnie Common has shared a new single, ‘Crumbs’, ahead of the spookily-timed 31 Oct release of his latest LP, ‘Trapped In Amber’. Listen to the song here, and click here to get tickets to one or more of the three shows JC is doing next month as an intro to his new record.

• ‘One Night In Hell’, a short animated film inspired by, and somehow involving, Brian May and a pack of ‘Diablery’ cards he owns, is airing on Sky Arts tomorrow night, aka Halloween. No idea. Anyway here’s a trailer, and here’s an interview May did with Classic Rock explaining his diabolical new artistic distraction.
