January 14, 2013

Adele can add a Golden Globe to her trophy case as the singer won the Best Song award last night for "Skyfall," her James Bond theme. Adele seemed genuinely surprised to win the award, and she said that her and a friend simply came to the ceremony for "a night out" because they are both new moms. "I was not expecting this," Adele said in her acceptance speech. "Thank you for letting me be part of your world."

Britney Spears has officially confirmed the news that she will not be returning as judge to The X Factor next season. The singer said in a statement: "I've made the very difficult decision not to return for another season. I had an incredible time doing the show and I love the other judges and I am so proud of my teens but it's time for me to get back in the studio. Watching them all do their thing up on that stage every week made me miss performing so much! I can't wait to get back out there and do what I love most." Spears is currently working on a new album with such collaborators as will.i.am, Ester Dean and Hit-Boy. In other news, the singer also has called off her engagement to her former manager Jason Trawick. Spears confirmed that news to People, stating:
"Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement. I'll always adore him and we will remain great friends."

Black Sabbath has revealed that their new album with Ozzy Osbourne will be out in June. Titled 13, the album will be the first to feature Ozzy since 1978's Never Say Die. With drummer Bill Ward out of the picture since contract negotiations fell apart last year, the current lineup consists of Ozzy, guitarist Tommy Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler and Brad Wilk of Rage Against the Machine handling the drums. The new set was produced by Rick Rubin.


Yeah Yeah Yeahs

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs have announced the release of their fourth full-length album, Mosquito, set for April 16 via Interscope Records. The trio released a teaser video for the album this morning, which features production work from Dave Sitek of TV On The Radio and LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy on one song, which also has a cameo from rapper Dr. Octagon (aka Kool Keith). In a statement, frontworman Karen O says, "We would love for this music to make our fans feeeeel something, for it to stir some shit up inside of them, whatever that may be. So much feeling went into this record, it was the rope ladder thrown down into the ditch for us to climb up and dust ourselves off. I hope others can climb up it too; we’re excited to share the good vibes."

Alice In Chains has announced a 2013 tour in support of the band's yet-to-be-announced new record. The new dates begin in Miami Beach on April 25 and run up to May 25 at the Rocklahoma Festival in Pryor, OK. AIC will also play the Download Festival in the UK in June and Rock In Rio in Rio de Janeiro in September.

Muse has added five dates to their North American tour. The new shows are: February 27 in Cincinnati; March 5 in Columbus; March 16 in Phoenix; April 13 in Uncasville, CT; and April 21 in Uniondale, NY. Tickets go onsale January 18 at 10 a.m. local time.

Birthday boy Dave Grohl has given a gift to fans: details about theatrical screenings of his upcoming Sound City documentary. The movie will have a number of one-night-only screenings around the country on January 31, with a handful on February 1 and a few more later that month. The proper Sound City premiere is set for the Sundance Film Festival later this month. A list of all the screenings can be found here.

AWOLNATION has announced the dates of their spring U.S. tour. The band has confirmed 30 new shows beginning March 8 in Lubbock, TX and running through April 25 in Tulsa, OK. Blondfire will serve as the main support act on most dates with Mother Mother to open. Recently, AWOLNATION has been in the studio working on the follow up to their debut album, Megalithic Symphony, and the band will be performing several new songs in their live set, including "This Kid's Not Alright," "Some Kind Of Joke???," and "Cannibals."

Universal Music has announced that due to a manufacturing plant error, the release of Rammstein's VIDEOS 1995-2012 DVD will be delayed until February. The new release date will be announced next week.
