Quick Hits: Beyoncé, Depeche Mode, Lollapalooza Berlin, Blondie
February 1, 2017

Beyoncé loves to surprise her fans and this afternoon she made another major announcement online. The superstar musician is pregnant with twins. Bey posted a glamorous photo of herself to Instagram, visibly pregnant while in her underwear and surrounded by flowers. A caption attributed to herself and husband Jay Z reads, "We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes." The couple's daughter Blue Ivy just turned 5-years-old in January. Beyoncé is scheduled to perform at Coachella in April but there is only speculation currently as to if her pregnancy will affect her headlining appearance.

Depeche Mode will release their long-awaited 14th album Spirit on March 17. Lead single "Where's the Revolution" will arrive this Friday, February 3. The band will head out on a world tour in support of Spirit, with extensive tour dates already announced from May through July. North and South American dates will be announced soon.

Foo Fighters, Mumford & Sons and The xx will headline the third annual Lollapalooza Berlin, set for September 9-10. The Head and The Heart, Two Door Cinema Club, Phantogram and many other acts are on the bill as well.

New Wave legends Blondie will release a new album title Pollinator on May 5. The group's original members Debbie Harry, Chris Stein and Clem Burke teamed up with an all-star lineup of musicians on the new material, including Sia, Joan Jett, Johnny Marr, Charli XCX, Nick Valensi of The Strokes and others.
