Glastonbury is set for June 28-30.


Kings Of Leon
Kings Of Leon bassist Jared Followill has confirmed that the band's new album is finished and will be out in September. Speaking in this week's NME, Followill stated: "I thought we were going to make a really mature album but I'm amazed how youthful it sounds. It's like a mix of Youth & Young Manhood and Because Of The Times." The band is currently confirmed to play at three U.S. music festivals -- Bottle Rock in Napa Valley on May 11; the Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, AL on May 17; and the Governor's Ball Music Festival in New York on June 7 -- followed by European touring this summer.

Chris Brown is ramping up the promotion for his sixth studio album, X, which is due in August. Brown's first single from the CD, "Fine China," will drop on April 1, and he called in to Ryan Seacrest's radio show to discuss the new music and his work in the studio with Jennifer Lopez. "We are actually collaborating," Brown said of J. Lo. "I'm trying to get her on my album; I have a couple songs that would be incredible for her to feature on. But as for now, I’m just in the studio writing for hers and collaborating on new stuff and trying to give her some party music."

Kid Cudi has revealed the tracklist for his upcoming album, Indicud, and it features some guest stars that fans would expect, like Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky and RZA, and one guest that fans probably wouldn't expect: namely, Michael Bolton. Indicud will arrive in stores on April 23 via G.O.O.D. Music/Universal Republic.

Kelly Rowland's next solo album has a new title, as well as an international release date. The LP is now called Talk a Good Game and it's due out on June 4, according to a Facebook post from Universal South Africa. However, it's unclear if the U.S. release date will be the same.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Flaming Lips, Matt & Kim, Father John Misty, De La Soul, The Darkness, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, and about a dozen more acts are booked to play this year's GoogaMooga Festival in Brooklyn, NY. The three-day event takes place from May 17 to 19 in Brooklyn's Prospect Park and promises food from 85 New York restaurants along with a huge variety of different beers and wines.
