January 27, 2017

The first batch of presenters for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony have been announced. All are Hall of Famers themselves, as Neil Young will induct his old friends in Pearl Jam, Jackson Browne will introduce Joan Baez and Rush's Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson will induct Yes. Additional presenters will be announced soon. The ceremony takes place April 7 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The massive lineup for the annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival has been announced. Over 500 acts will perform across the two weekends of the event (April 28-30 and May 4-7). The headliners include Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Kings of Leon, Stevie Wonder, Usher with The Roots, Lorde, Wilco, Maroon 5, Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds and many more. The full lineup can be found at www.nojazzfest.com.

A video for Taylor Swift & Zayn's duet "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" has arrived, alternating between the two singers in separate hotel rooms with glimpses of the pair singing together under moody lighting. The song comes from the soundtrack to the upcoming Fifty Shades Darker, which is out February 10. Check out the video below:


Warner Bros. Records has announced the signing of Grammy-winning, multi-platinum singer/songwriter/producer Ciara. "We welcome Ciara to Warner Bros. Records and look forward to the next chapter of her storied music career," said Cameron Strang, WBR Chairman/CEO.

Hard rockers Mastodon will release their eighth album Emperor of Sand on March 31 via Reprise Records. The band will head out on an extensive spring tour kicking off in Missoula, MT on April 14 and winding up May 20 in Austin, TX.
