Alicia Keys
Alicia Keys and Kendrick Lamar have dropped their new single, "It's On Again," from the soundtrack to The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The track was written exclusively for the film by Pharrell Williams, Hans Zimmer, Keys and Lamar, and it is available for download now. The full soundtrack will be released in the U.S. on Tuesday, April 22, while the movie will hit U.S. theaters on May 2.

Ellie Goulding and Zedd are set to perform selections from the Divergent soundtrack during the 2014 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, April 13 in Los Angeles. Additionally, twenty one pilots will perform their new single, "Car Radio." Goulding will play the song "Beating Heart," while Zedd will perform "Find You" featuring Matthew Koma and Miriam Bryant. "When I found out 'Find You' would be part of the Divergent soundtrack I was beyond stoked," said Zedd. "Getting to perform the song live at the MTV Movie Awards with Matthew and Miriam is a total thrill we're really looking forward to sharing with the fans!" Additional performers will be announced at a later date.

Kanye West has reportedly postponed seven dates of his Yeezus tour in Australia that were scheduled for May in order to work on his next album, which is due later this year. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, a statement from Live Nation explains: "Due to unexpected timing requirements to finish his highly anticipated new studio album, scheduled for a 2014 release, Kanye West regretfully announces the postponement of his upcoming tour dates in Australia." Meanwhile, West's wedding to Kim Kardashian is set for May 24.

Jack White will release his second solo album, Lazaretto, on June 10 via Third Man Records/Columbia. White's own Third Man label will offer an exclusive vinyl "Vault" package for Lazaretto, which will be pressed on split-color blue-and-white vinyl and coupled with exclusive album art. The package also comes with a 7-inch of two early demos of songs that appear on Lazaretto, as well as a lavish 40-page hard bound book full of lyrics, musical notations, photos and artwork.

The Rolling Stones will resume touring in May in what will be the group's first concerts since the March 17 death of Mick Jagger's girlfriend, L'Wren Scott. The band revealed 14 dates across Europe and Israel in May, June and July as part of the 14 On Fire trek. The shows include Portugal's Rock In Rio festival and Denmark's Roskilde Festival.
