One Direction
One Direction has revealed the tracklisting for their November 13 album release, Take Me Home. The 13 songs on the standard album will include the lead single "Live While We're Young," as well as romance-themed tunes like "Kiss You," "Last First Kiss" and "Summer Love." In addition to the standard edition of Take Me Home, the "Deluxe/Yearbook Edition" will offer four additional tracks: "She's Not Afraid," "Loved You First," "Nobody Compares" and "Still the One." 1D worked with a number of producers and songwriters for the release, including Up All Night collaborators Rami Yacoub, Carl Falk and Savan Kotecha, songwriter Ed Sheeran and Dr. Luke.

HELLYEAH has announced a long string of tour dates in both the U.S. and Canada. The run kicks off on October 19 in Oklahoma City, which finds the band sharing the stage with The Cult, Hinder, Buckcherry, Saving Abel and Lit. Following those festival shows, HELLYEAH will embark on a solo run through Texas, Canada and select east coast gigs, which will lead them up to their tour opening for Lamb of God from November 20 to December 16.

No Doubt has settled its lawsuit against Activision over a feature in the game Band Hero that allowed players to perform the songs of other artists using avatars of the members of No Doubt. The band's lawsuit accused Activision Publishing Inc. of fraud, violation of publicity rights and breach of contract. However, the video game maker countered that there was nothing wrong with the feature and argued that the idea of "unlocking" such bonus features in a video game has been around for years. The sides reached an out-of-court settlement on Monday, according to Rolling Stone, though terms were not disclosed.

The Shins and The Kills will assist with the grand reopening of Jack White's Third Man Records shop in Nashville, which has been remodeled and expanded. The two bands will headline separate in-house concerts that will be recorded directly to vinyl for White's Live at Third Man series. The Shins will play with Low Cut Connie on October 6, and The Kills will perform with Two Tears on October 10. According to the Third Man website: "The thing we are most excited about is our newly installed record cutting lathe and vinyl mastering suite that fans will be able to view from inside the Blue Room. The live experience will be greatly enhanced as fans can not only watch the live show but see the show being recorded, mixed and mastered LIVE to an acetate disc via the viewing window and a two camera monitor system."

In a new interview with the U.K.'s NME, Lily Allen says she is "tinkering away" in the studio with longtime producer Greg Kurston, but a new album will not be coming anytime soon. "I'm not going to put anything out until I've got an end product which I think's amazing – or, you know, good," she told NME. "I don't think there's going to be anything out in the next few months, but hopefully in the next year."

The Replacements have apparently recorded four cover songs in a semi-reunion that will be released later this year as a limited edition 10-inch vinyl EP. All 250 copies will auctioned online, and the proceeds will benefit Slim Dunlap, the band's guitarist from 1987 to 1991, who had a severe stroke in February. In late September, singer Paul Westerberg and bassist Tommy Stinson spent a day in a Minneapolis studio cutting the songs. Drummer Chris Mars "didn't want any part of this" reunion, Westerberg told Rolling Stone, adding, "I was not surprised, but I was a little disappointed." Hence, Peter Anderson played the drums and Kevin Bowe (who was in Westerberg's solo band the last time he toured) played guitar.
