Justin Bieber unveiled the album art for his upcoming album Believe via Twitter on Friday. A color version of the art (seen to the right) is the cover for the regular version, while a sepia-toned version of the same artwork serves as the cover for the deluxe edition. Believe is due out June 19. Meanwhile, Beiber's bodyguard Kenny Hamilton tweeted a picture of the Biebs in the studio with Kanye West. Hamilton captioned the picture with "Putting the finishing touches on the album and it's gonna be special." Believe is expected to include an all-star roster of cameos and contributors.

The Offspring have set a June 26 release date for Days Go By, the veteran rockers' next studio album. The title track and lead single landed at radio on Friday morning.  

Kevin Richardson has rejoined the Backstreet Boys, after leaving the group in 2006. At a concert in London over the weekend, the members of the group announced they would be in London this summer to record a new album and that Richardson was officially rejoining them. Backstreet Boys then tweeted "Now everything is back to normal ... Welcome back @kevinrichardson."
