Chris Brown
Chris Brown revealed the full track list for his upcoming album, X, as well as for the deluxe edition. The standard version of X, due September 16, features collaborations with Usher, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Tyga, Trey Songz, R. Kelly, Akon and more. The deluxe version will house four extra tracks, including "Don't Think They Know" featuring the vocals of late singer Aaliyah.

Fox has given the green light to a comedy series based on the life of Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo. DeTour is described as a coming-of-age story that tells the tale of a 30-something rock star who, unable to rationalize his success and worried that he may not have the tools to repeat it, walks away from the spotlight at the height of his fame in an effort to rediscover the parts of his life he missed while he was busy becoming famous, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The series is reminiscent of how Cuomo took a hiatus from Weezer eight years ago to return to college at Harvard and live in the dorms. Weezer's next studio album, Everything Will Be Alright in the End, is due on October 7.

Miley Cyrus will headline the inaugural iHeartRadio Australia Music Festival this October. The single-day show will take place on October 18 at Sydney's Allphones Arena. Redfoo, homegrown pop/rock act At Sunset, Sydney-based rapper Miracle, and DJ duo The Faders are confirmed to perform, with more artists to be announced shortly.

The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers is hitting the studio to work on his second solo effort, slated for a 2015 release. Producer Ariel Rechtshaid (Vampire Weekend, Haim) is working with him on the new material. "He's taking me out of my comfort zone," Flowers told NME. "Normally I make demos and they're pretty similar to how the song ends up, but he'll take a song and be like, 'I hear this'. It's incredible… his palette and his range, what he's able to say. At first we were butting our heads together, but now we're hitting it off."

Due to production issues, the release of the latest albums in the Paul McCartney Archive Collection will be delayed.  The classic Wings albums Venus and Mars and At The Speed of Sound will now be released on November 4 in the U.S. and not the previously announced September date. In keeping with the Archive Collection tradition, all aspects of the project have been overseen by McCartney. The packages include bonus and previously unreleased material.

Bob Dylan will embark on a 31-date North American tour, beginning October 17 in Seattle. He will play multiple nights in most cities, wrapping up with four nights at New York's Beacon Theater from November 28 to December 2. Tickets for most shows go on sale this weekend.
