Coldplay
On November 20, Capitol Records will release Coldplay's Live 2012, the band's first concert film / live album in nine years. It documents the group's acclaimed Mylo Xyloto world tour and the film was directed by Paul Dugdale, who also helmed Adele's Live at the Royal Albert Hall. Live 2012 includes footage from Coldplay's shows at Paris's Stade de France, Montreal's Bell Centre and the U.K.'s Glastonbury Festival. Coldplay frontman Chris Martin commented, "The Mylo Xyloto tour has been the most fun we've ever had as a band. It's felt very uplifting right from the start; partly because we are proud of the music, the LED wristbands, the pyrotechnics, the lasers and all of that stuff, but mainly because of the amazing audiences that we've been playing for. Over the years, our crowd has become more and more a part of the concert itself. They're loud, diverse, full of soul, and make the songs sound much better than we can on our own. We wanted to try to bottle the incredible feeling that they give us, and hence our concert film."

Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group has announced a tour that will feature Ross alongside his cohorts Wale and Meek Mill. The 23-date trek kicks off in Columbus, OH on November 2 and runs through December 2 in San Diego. The trio will be supporting their recently released group album, Self Made Vol. 2, as well as Ross' solo set, God Forgives, I Don't.

Feist's album Metals is the winner of Canada's 2012 Polaris Music Prize. The announcement was made a gala in Toronto last night, where Feist also performed. Feist also took home $30,000 for the honor. "Polaris is asking me for a quote. I haven't had a second to consider how to talk about this yet, but what I want to say is thank you to the people who really listened to my record," she said. "I'm genuinely grateful from one solitary listener to another. Honestly, thanks."

Deejay/producer Calvin Harris will release his third solo album, 18 Months, on October 30. A third of the songs on the album already have been released as singles, including Rihanna's "We Found Love," the Ne-Yo assisted "Let's Go" and his solo radio hit "Feels So Close." The next single will be "Sweet Nothing" featuring singer Florence Welch. Other collaborators on the set include Ellie Goulding, Tinie Tempah, Dizzee Rascal, Ayah and Kelis.

Pop duo Karmin will be featured in Rolling Stone's "Women Who Rock" issue, coming out this Friday, with Karmin singer Amy Heidmann on the cover. Karmin will perform at a Rolling Stone concert in honor of the Women Who Rock cover on October 16 at New York's Hard Rock Cafe. "We're over the moon about winning Rolling Stone's Women Who Rock Contest," said Heidemann. Nick Noonan added, "It's such a huge honor to be on the flip cover of this special issue and it wouldn't have happened without our fans. We are beyond thankful to them!" Karmin will perform on Dancing with the Stars on October 9, as well as at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York and on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.

On November 13, Lana Del Rey will release Born To Die -The Paradise Edition, which will offer the original album plus eight new tracks. The first new single, "Ride," produced by Rick Rubin, is available now at digital retail. The eight new songs on Born To Die -The Paradise Edition will also be available as a stand-alone digital and CD release. The complete set will be available in three formats: digital, double disc, and a Deluxe Box set, which will include a remix CD, a video DVD, 7" vinyl of Lana's cover of "Blue Velvet," and four art prints.
