June 25, 2014

Sir Paul McCartney has released a short YouTube video, updating fans on his condition and announcing his newly re-scheduled U.S. tour dates. In the clip, McCartney says he feeling "great," plays some air guitar and is "rockin' and rollin'." The postponed concerts will now take place in the fall, while the tour will officially get under way in Albany on July 5. You can see McCartney's brief video below:

Jack White has added a few more live dates in August and September, playing Troutdale, OR; Cleveland; Jacksonville; Miami and Columbia, SC. As previously announced, White is also one of the headliners for Atlanta's Music Midtown Festival in September.

A copy of the lyrics for Bob Dylan's "Like A Rolling Stone" were auctioned off for $2.045 million at an auction yesterday. Rolling Stone reports that specifically a draft of the lyrics to the classic song were written in pencil on four sheets of hotel stationary. They are not the final lyrics to the song and contain some alternate phrases and lines.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O has announced her first solo album, titled Crush Songs, due out September 9. The album is set for release on Julian Casablancs' Cult Records label. Karen also unveiled her own Twitter account and personal website as well, at @KarenO and KarenO.com, respectively.

Colbie Caillat has announced a U.S. tour in support of her recent EP, Gypsy Heart Side A. The trek begins in Denver on August 27 and wraps up in San Diego on September 28.
