April 30, 2013

Chris Brown has picked July 16 as the release date for his new album, X. The singer confirmed the release date on Twitter late Monday night when he tweeted out a new track, "I Can't Win," although he added that this particular song will not be on the album.


TLC's Chilli and T-Boz

In honor of the 20th anniversary of TLC, surviving members Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas have a new album, a VH1 made-for-TV movie and a tour in the works. The tour will feature digital projections of late member Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes on a big screen to accompany the live vocals. It was already announced that the group will play at Hershey, PA's Mixtape Festival on July 27. "The word anniversary means a celebration. For us, her death will never be a celebration, it's still something that hurts," Watkins said in a statement, with Thomas adding, "Lisa is our sister. You never get over losing a family member. We love her and we miss her and that isn't ever going to change." A spokesperson for VH1 confirmed that the biopic is slated to air on the network in the fall, while Chilli told Essence, "We'll have new music right after the movie drops."

Beck has announced a string of acoustic tour dates spanning from May 19 in Santa Cruz, CA to August 4 in Brooklyn, NY. The dates include stops at Bob Dylan's traveling Americanarama Festival in Wantagh, NY on July 27 and Rhode Island's Newport Folk Festival on July 28.

St. Louis' annual LouFest returns to Central Field in Forest Park on September 7 and 8, and this year's bill will be topped by The Killers, Wilco, The National, Alabama Shakes and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. Other acts include Jim James, Local Natives, Fitz and the Tantrums, Toro Y Moi, Trampled by Turtles, Walk the Moon, Ra Ra Riot and others. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 3.

Pusha T's first-ever solo album, My Name Is My Name, will drop on July 16. The G.O.O.D. Music rapper is currently on the road with Fabolous as part of the Life is So Exciting Tour.

Nickelodeon TV stars Big Time Rush will release their third album, 24/seven, on Columbia Records on June 11. The group will tour this summer alongside Victoria Justice, starting June 21 in Los Angeles.

The Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit has revealed the lineup for its 2013 festival, which takes places October 25-27 in Asheville, NC. A concert poster lists headliners Nine Inch Nails, Bassnectar and Pretty Lights, along with Neutral Milk Hotel, Animal Collective, How To Destroy Angels, Gary Numan and many more. More than 50 artists will play the festival along with panel discussions and other interactive experiences.

The 17th annual Webby Awards were handed out last night to honor innovative online achievements. Singer Frank Ocean, who opened up about his sexuality on Tumblr last July, scored top honors with Webby Person of the Year. Grimes, who's used Tumblr as a platform to rail against sexism and other issues, picked up Webby Music Artist of the Year. Justin Bieber earned the People's Voice Award in the Social Media Campaigns category for the launch of his "Girlfriend" fragrance, while Lady Gaga received the Celebrity/Fan Social Presence Webby Award for her social media integration with her storefront at Barney's.
