Justin Timberlake
When the second installment of Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience drops on October 1, so will a four-LP vinyl set of the entire two-part album. The set will include all the tracks from part one, in addition to part two. Meanwhile, Timberlake has been busy on the road with the Legends of the Summer tour alongside Jay Z, and his own 20/20 Experience World Tour begins on October 31 in Montreal.

Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke have been added to the lineup for the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, taking place on August 25 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. They join previously announced performers Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Kanye West and One Direction.

Avenged Sevenfold is teaming up with Machinima for a six-episode animated series entitled Hail To The King, which will air via YouTube this fall. The series is directed by Metalocalypse's Jon Schnepp. It will feature music from A7X's new album, also called Hail To The King, which is due on August 27. The band recently revealed plans for the Hail To The King tour, which begins in Chicago on October 3 and will wrap up on October 26 in Las Vegas. Supporting the group on all dates will be special guests Deftones and Ghost B.C.

In June, a report surfaced that Arcade Fire would be releasing new music on September 9, ahead of its October 29 album release date. Now, an Instagram account called "Reflektor" has been compiling images of mysterious Arcade Fire-related graffiti that has appeared in cities worldwide. Today, that Instagram account posted a trio of images teasing the date September 9 and the time of 9 p.m. Perhaps new music is less than a month away.

In an interview on Paul Mecurio's podcast, Stephen Colbert discusses the month leading up to Daft Punk's ill-fated appearance on his show, which was canceled last week over a conflicting gig on MTV's Video Music Awards. Colbert says in the interview that he and his writers were forced to write around the artists' refusal to talk or perform during their appearance, and they had figured out a comedy gag that would involve the duo's manager. However, just one day before Daft Punk was set to arrive, Colbert became aware of their VMA performance and was unsure if MTV Networks would agree to have them on both programs. Colbert said he was "confident it would work out," but a deal was not arranged. "I understand that the VMAs have got their own rules, and Daft Punk, that's a big important thing to have done," Colbert told Mecurio, "but I'm the guy who's completely screwed here. I don't have a show tonight." However, VMA executive producer Jesse Ignjatovic told The Hollywood Reporter that was not the case. "We don't put restrictions on anyone. I just think that we're talking to them about a moment and then things sort of change," he said. "I would not describe that as MTV putting restrictions on people -- it was up to that artist and their management what they wanted to do."

The forthcoming album from Yoko Ono's Plastic Ono Band, Take Me to the Land of Hell, will feature collaborations with surviving Beastie Boys Ad-Rock and Mike D, as well as Questlove and Wilco guitarist Nels Cline. The track featuring the Beasties, "Bad Dancer," can be heard now at www.Pitchfork.com, while another song called "Tabetai," featuring Tune-Yards, has also emerged online. Take Me to the Land of Hell is due on September 17.

Jon Brookes, the founding drummer for British band The Charlatans, has died at age 44 after a lengthy battle with brain cancer. A post on the band's website explains that Brookes had been receiving treatment for a brain tumor and had undergone several operations, although he had been working on new material with the band over the summer. He passed away peacefully in a hospital with his family at his bedside. "Jon was a brilliant drummer, an inspiration, a founding member of The Charlatans, part of our family and a friend to everyone in and around the band," the group wrote online. "Losing someone who was always so full of life is a tragedy that will be shared by so many. Our thoughts are with Debbie and all of Jon's family."
