Jay Z
Jay Z and Kanye West will re-team at SXSW this week, for the first time since their massive 2012 Watch The Throne tour. The pair will headline an undisclosed venue in Austin tomorrow night (3/12), as part of a series of concerts sponsored by Samsung. The concerts are to promote the new ad-free streaming service Milk Music. Janelle Monae and Gary Clark Jr. will play a similar surprise Samsung gig on Thursday, with Broken Bells on Friday and dance acts Cut Copy and Holy Ghost! on Saturday.
     In other SXSW news, Vevo will be streaming the entire iTunes Festival at SXSW. From March 11 to 15, Vevo iOS and Apple TV viewers, as well as Mac Safari users, can live stream performances from Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, Kendrick Lamar, Pitbull, Keith Urban and more directly from Austin. Select performances will be available on demand following the stream.

Skrillex released a surprise new album digitally on Monday night, with his new record Recess now available via the EDM artist's own smartphone app, as well as streaming via iTunes. The record officially goes on sale on March 18, and features cameos from a wide variety of acts. Skrillex revealed an extensive run of spring and summer tour dates as well.

Lana Del Rey has confirmed 16 new tour dates, expanding her 2014 U.S. trek until May 27 in Seattle. More dates will soon be announced. Meanwhile, Del Rey is putting the finishing touches on her forthcoming album, Ultraviolence.

A previously-unreleased collaboration between Daft Punk and Jay Z has surfaced
online. According to multiple reports, the track, titled "Computerized," uses a sample that the French dance duo also used on the 2010 Tron: Legacy soundtrack, so it is unknown when the song was actually recorded.
