Quick Hits: Rihanna, Stone Sour, Nicki Minaj, Kid Rock, Gary Clark, Jr.
October 11, 2012

Rihanna has confirmed that her new album will be called Unapologetic. The album features the current single "Diamonds" and it drops on November 19. Rihanna posted the album cover on Twitter and wrote: "My new album Unapologetic will be released on November 19 worldwide." This is the fourth November in a row that Rihanna has released a new album, following Rated R in 2009, Loud in 2010 and Talk That Talk in 2011. Her Diamonds tour hits the road next year starting on March 8 in Buffalo, NY.

Stone Sour will release the first installment of their double album, House of Gold & Bones Part 1, on October 22, and now singer Corey Taylor also will release a companion comic book series. Taylor wrote the story as well as the lyrics for the 23 tracks that make up the two albums, and the House of Gold & Bones four-issue comic series will expand on that story. "I've been a die-hard fan of comics, on every level, my entire life," says Taylor. "This has been a dream of mine for years now, and this project was tailor made for a comic, no pun intended. I couldnít have picked a better company than Dark Horse to make this a reality. I have loved several of their titles for many years, going back to '92. If we can get this crazy world out of my head and onto the canvas, it'll be the best thing I've ever attempted."

Nicki Minaj announced via Twitter that she will be releasing Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - The Re-Up on November 19. The new version of the album will feature five to six new songs, including the first release, "The Boys," featuring Cassie. Minaj's Pink Friday: RELOADED Tour kicks off on October 21. She also tweeted the album cover for The Re-Up today, which you can see here.

Kid Rock and Sean Penn have released a short film called Americans, that was directed by Jameson Stafford. The 11-minute piece is posted on Rock's official website as well as on YouTube. The movie was written by Rock and Penn and is designed "to tear down the one-dimensional political stereotypes portrayed by the media by confronting them head on," according to the post on Rock's site. "It reminds us that what really matters is that we're all Americans, with diverse thoughts, opinions and stances on issues. We are millions of unique, individual parts, the sum of which comprise a whole that is the shining beacon of freedom throughout the world." Kid Rock also is currently preparing for the November 19 release of his next album, Rebel Soul.

To celebrate the release of his new album Blak And Blu, which will be released on October 22, guitarist Gary Clark Jr. will make several television appearances the week of its release. Clark will perform the album's first radio track, "Ain't Messin 'Round," on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on October 22. Later that week, he will travel to New York to perform on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Clark will perform two songs, one that will air during the show and another that will be featured exclusively on the Late Night website.
