Adam Levine's 222 Records has joined forces with Interscope Records, and the labels will jointly release the soundtrack for the upcoming film, Begin Again. The soundtrack will be available from ALXNDR/222/Polydor/Interscope on July 1 and features songs co-written by Gregg Alexander, Danielle Brisebois, Nick Lashley, Nick Southwood, Rick Nowels, John Carney and Glen Hansard. In addition, 222/Interscope will also jointly release Maroon 5's fifth album, V, which is due on September 2. The band recently announced details of their first single, "Maps," which will impact radio and iTunes on June 16. As previously reported, V was recorded in Los Angeles over the past year with producers Max Martin, Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder, Shellback and Sam Martin. The record reunites Maroon 5 with long-time keyboardist Jesse Carmichael, who took a hiatus while the band recorded its last album, 2012's Overexposed.

Manchester Orchestra has released an acoustic version of the single Top Notch!, which is available via iTunes. The band also announced a handful of new U.S. tour dates with The Mowgli's and Brick + Mortar that run through August, peppered around Manchester Orchestra's festival appearance at Chicago's Lollapalooza, Montreal's Osheaga and more.

alt-J will release their second album, This Is All Yours, on September 22 via Canvasback / Infectious Music in CD, digital and double-vinyl editions. alt-J will support the album with a North American tour scheduled for October and November.

Lykke Li, who recently completed an album trilogy with the third component called I Never Learn, has announced a brief North American tour for this fall. It is set to run from September 17 in Seattle to October 9 in Orlando.

It seems that brothers Ray and Dave Davies may be able to get along well enough to do a Kinks reunion. Over the weekend, Ray Davies told The Sunday Times of London, "I met Dave only last week to talk about getting together again. We've also spoken a few times on the phone and emailed." Ray added that he would want to begin by making a new Kinks album before touring. "We both agree we don't want to do old stuff or tour with past hits — it's got to be something new," he stated. Dave Davies also confirmed contact with his brother in a Facebook post, writing: "Ray & Dave Davies have started meeting about a potential The Kinks reunion, but we're not quite there yet."
