Quick Hits: Iggy Azalea, Metallica / One Direction, Jane's Addiciton & CBGB Music and Film Festival
September 4, 2014


Iggy Azalea
Iggy Azalea has had so much success with her album The New Classic that she has decided to expand it. The upcoming re-release of the album will boast six new tracks, including a collaboration with U.K. songstress Ellie Goulding. "Shooting the album re pack cover art this week. Can't wait for you guys to hear some new stuff. Six new tracks," Iggy wrote on Twitter. "Me and Ellie Goulding have a nice little numberrrr together on there too." The new song titles and release date have yet to be announced.

The 2015 edition of the Guinness World Records book will include a number of new musical feats. Metallica will be honored for being the first and only band to tour all seven continents, an achievement they completed last year when they played a gig in Antarctica. One Direction earned the distinction of being the first act to debut at #1 with its first three albums. "This really is one of our proudest moments, both for us and our incredible fans," Niall Horan said in a statement. "Whenever we talk about it, we always say how cool it is that we did it first, how sick is that?!" Meanwhile, Miley Cyrus became the "most searched-for pop star on the Internet;" Shakira ousted Rihanna as the "most 'liked' person on Facebook;" and Katy Perry earned the record for the most Twitter followers. Eminem also scored a record by squeezing in the most words into a hit single (1,560 in the track "Rap God"). The Guinness World Records 2015 book comes out on September 10.

The third annual CBGB Music & Film Festival will take place October 8-12 in venues throughout New York City, with headliners including Jane's Addiction, Devo, and Macy Gray. Jane's Addiction plans to perform their 1988 album Nothing's Shocking in its entirety. CBGB Festival co-owner and executive producer Tim Hayes told Billboard that Jane's Addiction "not only create a new style of music, they also helped shape the modern day festival landscape. We've got a few surprises with Jane's around their performance. They're participating heavily in the festival." Other acts will include Surfer Blood, We Are Scientists, Robert DeLong, and The Muffs.
