March 6, 2014


Capital Cities
Riding on the heels of the multi-format hit "Safe and Sound," Capital Cities are set to release a new single and a deluxe album. The single, "One Minute More," will be available on the deluxe version of In A Tidal Wave of Mystery that will be released on March 11. The deluxe edition also will contain remixes and a cover of "Nothing Compares 2 U." Meanwhile, Capital Cities will play the first iTunes Festival at SXSW in Austin on March 13, both weekends of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in April, the Bonnaroo Festival in June, and then spend the summer on the road with Katy Perry.

After performing together at several one-off shows in the past, Queen and Adam Lambert have decided to do a full tour together. The group is set for a 19-date North American jaunt kicking off June 19 in Chicago and wrapping on July 20 in Washington D.C. In a press conference held this morning at Madison Square Garden, Queen guitarist Brian May explained the difference between this tour and the band's collaboration with former Bad Company frontman Paul Rodgers. "It was great with Paul, but it came to a natural end," said May. "This happened organically with Adam. People are going to ask whether it's Queen without Freddie Mercury. I don't know. We just want to go out there one more time. Adam isn't an imitator. We're going into new territory."

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have reportedly set May 24 as the date for their wedding, which will be held in Paris, according to Us Weekly. No other details were revealed, but Kardashian told Ryan Seacrest in a recent interview: "We're having a super, super small, intimate wedding. As we go along, we're realizing we want it to be smaller and more intimate than people are imagining and thinking."

After his Oscar-winning turn as Rayon in the movie Dallas Buyers Club, Jared Leto says he would like to direct a feature-length film. However, he also may use his directorial skills to make another epic video with his band, 30 Seconds To Mars. "We are, right now, plotting and planning," Leto told MTV News. "I would love to do a sequel to 'Hurricane,' maybe that would be 'Bright Lights' or 'Do Or Die,' which could be another single here in the U.S. We're figuring things out. Lots of, as they say, good problems to have."

Wale, Common, Daddy Yankee and Big Boi are among the artists who will appear on Catch The Throne, a mixtape inspired by the HBO series Game Of Thrones. The free compilation will be available for download on March 11 via SoundCloud.
