Madonna teased a new track via her Instagram account, titled "Messiah." The Pop superstar took a picture of sheet music for the new song, with the caption "Coming soon........#promise #keep#sorceress#deep." She later posted a short video clip of an orchestra recording for "Messiah," writing "Magic makes the people come together yaaaaaaaasssssssssss. #messiah."

Over 100 rare Bob Dylan recordings on acetate were recently discovered by record collector Jeff Gold, containing demos of three albums released in 1969 and 1970. Rolling Stone reports the acetates, which can be played on a normal record player, were recorded as Dylan demoed songs and tried out alternate takes and arrangements. The record sleeves also have notes and doodles, which have been verified in Dylan's handwriting.

The next re-issue in the Oasis catalog will of course be their sophomore record, (What's The Story) Morning Glory? Due out September 30, the album will be re-released as a CD, digital download, special edition three-CD set, 12" vinyl LP and deluxe box set including the LP, deluxe CD, exclusive vinyl and more. (What's The Story) Morning Glory? featured the smash hits "Wonderwall," "Champagne Supernova" and "Don't Look Back In Anger."

Prolific singer-songwriter Ryan Adams will release a new, self-titled record on September 9. Lead single "Gimme Something Good" arrived at radio last week. Adams has kept busy in recent years as a producer at his own Pax-Am Studios in Hollywood. Ryan Adams is the follow-up to 2011's Ashes & Fire. Adams has a handful of summer tour dates lined up, including an appearance at the FMQB Triple A Conference in Boulder, CO next month.
