Sharon Van Etten announces ‘Tramp’ anniversary reissue and shares unseen ‘Serpents’ video

‘Tramp’ was produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner and marked the breakthrough for Van Etten.

In conjunction with today’s announcement, Van Etten has shared a recently unearthed, previously unseen video for ‘Serpents’ that was directed by Naomi Yang of Galaxie 500.

The singer explained in press material that she chose not to release the video at the time owing to feeling “uncomfortable in my own skin”.

Addressing the reader and her fans, Van Etten wrote: “About a year or two ago, Naomi Yang (of Galaxie 500) reached out to me after she had rediscovered a video that we had made together in 2011, during the making of ‘Tramp’, just before the album’s release. It was for the song ‘Serpents.’

“At the time, I didn’t have much experience with music videos. I was very insecure about being the focus of a video. Maybe I wasn’t ready to face my demons. I know it sounds funny. I could write and perform them, but facing them and baring my soul on camera felt like an entirely different thing, and when I looked at myself, I felt uncomfortable in my own skin. I chose not to release the video.”

Van Etten added: “While reading Naomi’s email during the pandemic, and watching this younger version of myself, I felt empathy for the emotions I was trying to express in the song and the video form. I could see the drive within me to share my soul and connect with others that felt a similar drive and desperation for answers, resolution.”

“The timing was uncanny, approaching the anniversary of ‘Tramp’,” Van Etten continued in her note. “Thinking about my time in New York while in the bubble of Los Angeles and my home. Thinking about how restless I was, and now settled down and stable. Thinking about how Aaron Dessner took a chance on me after I messaged him with a fury of demos.

“He could see through the hiss and crappy vocals on my GarageBand demos, and that I had something to say. He could hear my shitty finger tapping drum beats and knew I had an inner rock kid in me.

“I remember when he handed me his Fender Jag, and told me to play ‘Serpents’ after hearing the original demo. He gave me the confidence to be loud and to scream my rage and feel founded and justified in my own pain. He gave me more tools to find catharsis in my work. I have carried that with me ever since.”

The songwriter continued: “Being on the west coast the last two years, I look back on my community in New York and am forever grateful. I had so many friends and peers step up and help me unfold these demos into the album that it became. Doug Keith and Ben Lord from my original touring band, Logan Cole, Peter Silberman from The Antlers, Jessica Larrabee from She Keeps Bees, Thomas Bartlett of Doveman, Rob Moose of yMusic, Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak, Julianna Barwick, Zach Condon of Beirut, Matt Barrick (of The Walkmen), Clarice Jensen, Ben Lanz, Bryce Dessner, and Bryan Devendorf (of The National).”

Van Etten then expanded on the unreleased ‘This Is Too Right’. “I had almost forgotten about a song titled ‘This Is Too Right’ that didn’t make it onto the record,” she said.

“It was one of the first guitar ‘riffs’ I had ever written and Jenn Wasner sang on it with me. A song about not believing how good I had it. Like the other shoe was about to drop. I still feel so lucky for the things I have gotten to experience and accomplish, and I feel so blessed to celebrate this anniversary with you.

“It means so much that all these amazing musicians gathered around me to help me find my voice. I still have so much to figure out, in my life and my work, but I still feel the support and community to this day, even though we are all a bit scattered. I hope everyone that helped make this record, and that supported it, feel the love and admiration that I continue to hold for all of you.

“I hope that in sharing this record again, with a new video and this forgotten track, that new listeners are brought in to this album and find meaning and relevance in it today. I may have been just 30 when I made this album, but I was a lost, broken, vulnerable kid. All of the musicians on this album helped me come to life and perform in ways I never had before. May these songs find you well. Sending all my love.”

‘Serpents’ had a supporting cast of Aaron Dessner (slide, guitar, bass) and Bryce Dessner (ebo guitar), The Walkmen’s Matt Barrick (drums), Doveman’s Thomas Bartlett (keys), and Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner (vocals).

Director Yang said: “Upon hearing ‘Serpents’, I was struck by the emotion in the song, the raw anger. I imagined showing this fury escaping and overtaking the room – Sharon’s rage as expressed in the song manifesting itself in physical space.

“We made the video on a cold January day in 2012 [note: Van Etten said 2011] in an East Village walk-up loft borrowed from friends. It was me, on camera, with Susanne Sasic running the projections she had designed, and Sharon performing. I am delighted to know that now, on the 11th anniversary of Tramp, the ‘Serpents’ video will be seen at last.”

The news follows Van Etten last year sharing ‘Never Gonna Change’, taken from the deluxe edition of her latest album, ‘We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong’.

Meanwhile, last year Wargasm covered ’00s pop classic ‘Something Kinda Ooooh’ by Girls Aloud.

Released exclusively via Amazon Music, Wargasm’s cover stayed true to the original song that was released in 2006 for the pop group’s greatest hits album, ‘The Sound Of Girls Aloud’.

The cover capped off a busy year for Wargasm, punctuated by the release of ‘Explicit: The Mixxxtape’. The record arrived last September via Republic and featured singles including ‘Salma Hayek’‘D.R.I.L.D.O.’ and ‘Fukstar’.

Rare and unheard demos, songs and live tracks by The Prodigy unearthed online

As well as music, those working for the website also collate setlists from The Prodigy’s early live shows and interviews with band members, as well as album and touring art and design.

According to the website’s team page, All Souvenirs is “the unique project of five professionals working in different directions, yet closely tied with the music industry in one way or another”.

“We pooled our resources to create a new website with different rare information as it was trendy in the early 2000s,” it continued. “On our website, exclusive and the most credible information about the great band which has become common interest in recent years is collected bit by bit.”

The Prodigy embarked on their first tour last year since the death of their frontman Keith Flint who died by suicide in March 2019.

They are set to headline EXIT 2023, which was co-founded by The Prodigy’s own Liam Howlett. The Serbian festival will honour Flint with a special laser projection of the late musician that will be displayed during the band’s set.

The Prodigy will also appear at Parklife and Mad Cool this summer.

Beyoncé fans face frustration and 500,000-strong queue in attempt for ‘Renaissance’ tour tickets

Now, fans have reported experiencing glitches on the Ticketmaster website during general sale, with others saying they were kicked out of the queue, which reportedly reached 500,000 on some dates.

However, Ticketmaster has since clarified to NME that reports of ‘403’ messages actually refers to the blocking of “known bad traffic”, adding that the site “blocked 1.5million requests of that type today in the London queues alone to ensure real fans get their hands on tickets”.

You can read some fan reactions to the general sale below.

Employer: “name a time where you showed tenacity and perseverance”

Me: “I virtually queued on multiple devices with different tabs open for Beyoncé – Renaissance World Tour tickets for both London and Amsterdam”

— Ruqia (@RuqiaOsm) February 7, 2023

During the sale, Ticketmaster UK tweeted to tell fans not to “refresh your screen whilst queuing”, adding: “Stick to one window when you’re being pushed through the virtual queue and always resist the urge to refresh. Hitting the refresh button means you’ll lose your place in the queue.”

Beyoncé then added a further two gigs in London (June 3, 4) before sharing details of a fifth and final date at the same Tottenham venue. She’ll play the stadium once again on Thursday, June 1.

Ticketmaster has been under increased scrutiny in recent months after fans who were hoping to buy tickets for Taylor Swift‘s ‘Eras‘ tour reported lengthy wait times, website outages and hyper-inflated prices on resale sites (including Ticketmaster’s own).

The ticketing company later admitted that it buckled under the “historically unprecedented demand” it faced from Swift’s fans before cancelling the general sale.

Swift’s own fans subsequently mounted their own campaigns against Ticketmaster, with around 30 launching an initiative called ‘Vigilante Legal’. A class action lawsuit against Ticketmaster was also filed.

Meanwhile, Beyoncé also added an extra seven dates to the North America leg of her tour, after Live Nation reported some cities experiencing demand that exceeded the number of available tickets by over 800 per cent.

Juice WRLD’s final posthumous album is “in the works”

He continued: “You guys have been the best fans an artist can have (Minus the death threats to Bibby). I’m not gonna complain but i’ll jus say this is not easy. We miss you, We love you 999 til the world ends.”

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Lil Bibby (@lilbibby_)

Juice WRLD passed away in December 2019 after suffering a drug-induced seizure at Chicago’s Midway airport, nine months after the release of his second album, ‘Death Race For Love’. He was 21.

Since then, a posthumous album called ‘Legends Never Die’ was released in 2020. His second posthumous album, ‘Fighting Demons’, arrived in December 2021. The following February, two previously unreleased Juice WRLD tracks were shared called ‘Go Hard 2.0’ and ‘Cigarettes’.

‘Fighting Demons’, which features guest appearances from the likes of EminemJustin Bieber and BTS’ Suga, was originally released to tie in with the HBO-produced documentary titled Into the Abyss.

Last summer, Chicagoan viral rap star Polo G used his main stage set at Reading Festival 2022 (August 26) to pay tribute to Juice WRLD.

During his set, he asked his DJ to play Juice WRLD‘s ‘Armed And Dangerous’ in full, rapping along and inviting the crowd to do the same. Afterwards, he briefly gave an earnest “R.I.P J Dawg, man” to acknowledge the lost life of the influential rapper.

Matthew McConaughey to voice Elvis Presley in Netflix animated series

Agent Elvis was co-created by Priscilla Presley, Presley’s widow, and John Eddie. Mike Arnold serves as showrunner and headwriter for the show.

“From the time Elvis was a young boy he always dreamed of being the superhero fighting crime and saving the world! Agent King lets him do just that,” said Priscilla at the time of the show’s announcement.

Take a look at the trailer for Agent Elvis here:

Meanwhile, Austin Butler who played Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s 2021 biopic, say he may have damaged his vocal cords while filming.

Butler, along with using his own singing voice, adopted a Tennessee accent for the role – which has since stuck and become a talking point following appearances at the Golden Globes.

“I’m getting rid of the accent, but I have probably damaged my vocal cords with all that singing,” Butler said. “One song took 40 takes.”

Questlove on why Will Smith wasn’t in the 2023 Grammys’ hip-hop tribute

Smith might have been expected to appear in the medley, but was noticeably absent. However, Questlove later explained his absence, and mentioned that he was “99.4 committed” to be a part of the performance.

50-year anniversary of hip-hop performance at the #GRAMMYs by some of the greats including RunDMC, LL Cool J, Salt N Peppa, Ice T, Queen Latifah, Wu-Tang, Big Boi, Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliott, Nelly, Too Short, GloRilla, The Roots, and more… pic.twitter.com/HmGB0bvGZX

— Leon Carrington (@LeonCarrington) February 6, 2023

“They started shooting Bad Boys 4 this week, so he couldn’t make rehearsals.” Questlove clarified to Entertainment Tonight. “He wanted to do it.”

Smith infamously slapped Chris Rock on-stage during last year’s Oscars ceremony following a joke about his wife Jada’s shaved head. At the time, Rock was about to present the award for Best Documentary, which Questlove went on to win for his film Summer Of Soul. The documentary celebrates the oft-overlooked 1969 music festival, The Harlem Cultural Festival.

Smith went on to apologise to Questlove as well as to Rock, his family and Rock’s family in an emotional video posted last July. “It really breaks my heart to have stolen and tarnished your moment,” Smith said to his “fellow nominees” in the video. “I can still see Questlove’s eyes. It happened on Questlove’s award, and you know, it’s like, ‘I’m sorry’ really isn’t sufficient.”

Following the incident, Smith resigned from the Academy in April 2022. He was later banned from all Academy events for 10 years.

Before the meeting, a spokesperson for Academy Music Group (AMG) – the company that runs the venue – said it would stay closed voluntarily until April while investigations continue. The meeting then saw the announcement that the venue’s licence would be suspended for three months also.

Following the closure, Dry Cleaning and Beartooth announced that their March gigs will now take place at The Roundhouse and OVO Arena Wembley, respectively. Girl In Red meanwhile, has moved her April 3 show to Hammersmith’s Eventim Apollo and Yard Act have moved their Brixton show in May to Troxy on the same date.

Dolly Parton was uncredited producer on this classic ‘90s teen show

“And then one day, someone asked her about it, and she complimented the show and my performance. I was like, ‘Oh, I can die now. Dolly Parton knows who I am and thinks I’m good.’”

Earlier this year, Dolly Parton revealed that Stevie Nicks and Paul McCartney are set to appear on her new rock album.

Titled ‘Rock Star’, the new record is set to feature covers of classic songs by the likes of PrinceThe Rolling StonesLed Zeppelin and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Parton also confirmed that ‘Rock Star’ will boast team-ups with John Fogerty, former Journey singer Steve Perry and Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler.

Royal Blood were recently announced as the headliners for Y Not Festival, topping the bill on the Friday night. It was also announced that the band would be headlining Truck Festival this summer, alongside Alt-JTwo Door Cinema Club and The Wombats, and Kendal Calling 2023 at Lowther Deer Park in the Lake District.

Speaking about headlining Truck Festival, which takes place from July 21-23, Royal Blood said: “After being booked to play in 2021, we can’t wait to finally head to Oxfordshire and headline Truck Festival this summer! Expect a party.”

Royal Blood are also due to support Muse on their 2023 UK and European tour, which begins on May 27 in Plymouth.

Speaking to NME last year, vocalist Mike Kerr said that Royal Blood’s last single ‘Honeybrains’ was “a snapshot of right now” and that more “instinctive” music would follow.

“Even with [2021 album] ‘Typhoons’, which was more of a departure than anything we’d done before, it’s never a designed or premeditated idea,” he told NME. “We always just follow what we’re feeling at the time. Having just made that record, we felt the most free, secure and unlimited.

“No thought went into this track – in the best possible way! I wasn’t writing for any reason. I wasn’t trying to write a single or the next Royal Blood song; I was just making music.”

Linkin Park announce release of never-heard-before song ‘Lost’

Fans have been speculating Linkin Park could be gearing up to release an expanded version of ‘Meteora’ in honour of the album’s 20th anniversary.

Last month, Linkin Park posted a countdown on their website, which expired on February 1. This was then replaced by an interactive puzzle which fans have been scouring for clues.

“Lost,” a new, never-before-heard song from the Meteora archives. Out Friday, February 10th. https://t.co/SSzD64K5n8#Meteora20 #LinkinPark pic.twitter.com/XN1dlzI7eu

— LINKIN PARK (@linkinpark) February 6, 2023

Back in 2020, the band reissued debut album ‘Hybrid Theory’ across multiple formats. The anniversary edition of that record featured unreleased tracks.

Last May, they unveiled a new, deluxe edition of their 2007 album ‘Minutes To Midnight’. 

Linkin Park have been on hiatus since the 2017 death of frontman Chester Bennington, but last year said they planned to communicate with their fans “a little more regularly” moving forward.

Advertisement

It comes after Shinoda told fans that the band’s survivng members were still in regular contact. “The only Linkin Park news I have for you is that… Yeah, we talk every few weeks – I talk to the guys, or some of the guys,” Shinoda said on a Twitch stream last Spring. “And there’s no tours, there’s no music, there’s no albums in the pipeline. Okay, so let me just tell you that. So just keep in your minds that that is not happening.”

“I’m just gonna say that much for now,” he continued. “I say that because anytime the band says anything or does anything, everyone tries to start up the hype train, and we’re, like, ‘No, no, no, no. Don’t start up the hype train.’ You’re gonna disappoint yourself. Don’t do that.”

Healy said that he could handle Liam and Noel Gallagher “dressing like they’re in their 20s and being in their 50s”, but not “acting like they’re in their 20s”. “They need to grow up,” he added.

“They’re men of the people, and they’re sat around in, like, Little Venice and Highgate, crying over an argument with their brother. Grow up! Headline Glastonbury! Have a good time! Have a laugh!”

Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump on Green Day’s friendship: “They hang out with each other”

“I gotta be honest. When you meet a lot of bands, they don’t really [hang out off-stage]. It’s kind of one of those industry secrets that everybody kinda secretly hates each other.

“And we always felt kind of weird that way, ‘cause we would go out for dinner with other bands, or a guy from another band and they’d be ready to dish and be like ‘Argh, MY guy’ and I’m like, ‘Kinda… We have our disagreements, but we like each other’ and Green Day was very much that.”

He also explained that Fall Out Boy are still close because they decided to split everything financially four ways from the outset.

“You wanna know one of the things that I think we did early on is that we never haggled over money,” Stump added. “Early on we said we’re going to split it four ways no matter who does what and it just made the whole thing clean and easy.”

Meanwhile, Fall Out Boy performed at the 2023 NHL All Star Game over the weekend (February 4).

After a host of hockey mascots led them to the stage, Fall Out Boy performed recent single ‘Love From The Other Side’ alongside 2014 track ‘Centuries’ and 2013 comeback song ‘My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)’.

It comes after Fall Out Boy’s North American headline tour was revealed last week, featuring special guests Bring Me The Horizon, Alkaline Trio, Royal & The Serpent and more.

Kicking off with a headline stadium show at Chicago’s Wrigley Field on June 21, their North American headline tour will finish August 6. Tickets are on sale now.

The run of shows is in support of upcoming album ‘So Much (For) Stardust’, which is out March 24.

Speaking to NME about the LP, Stump explained “it’s not a throwback record” despite the guitar-heavy first single.

“I didn’t want to go back to a specific style, but I wanted to imagine what would it have sounded like if we had made a record right after ‘Folie à Deux’ [Fall Out Boy’s divisive 2009 album] instead of taking a break for a few years,” he said. “It was like exploring the multiverse. It was an experiment in seeing what we would have done.”

Richard Hawley says he believes today’s politicians are “narcissists”

He continued: “This particular shower of shit hat we’ve got, everything they touch turns to shit,” before describing today’s politicians as “narcissists”.

“That’s a dangerous person when you’re working int’ Co-op, but it’s a really dangerous person when you’re running a country,” he said.

The musical features a plot line relating to a strike, and Hawley commented on the timeliness of a story about industrial action amid the frequent strikes that have taken place in the last year. “Nobody wants to strike, they don’t do it for fun.” His father been involved in a strike during his childhood – “We lived off fuck all. I don’t know how we got through.”

Hawley is set to open for fellow Steel City musicians Pulp at their pair of gigs at the city’s Utilita Arena on July 15 and 16.

Last year, Hawley played a four-night residency at Sheffield’s Leadmill to help save it from closure after the owners were faced with an eviction notice last March. The shows were his first at the venue since 2005.

RAYE installs album artwork display outside former label’s office

In a four-star review of ‘My 21st Century Blues’, NME wrote: RAYE recently said that [her] bold and brave declarations wouldn’t have been released had she still been signed to a major label. Granted her creative independence, though, the hard-fought ‘My 21st Century Blues’ is unequivocally RAYE from start to finish.”

@raye

I find myself in a great position 😭🫀#my21stcenturyblues #m21cb #raye #escapism

♬ Escapism. – Super Sped Up – RAYE

RAYE also recently spoke out about her “dangerous” experience of substance abuse in the past, which stemmed from her experiences of sexual assault and her unhappiness about her career. A lyric from her song ‘Ice-Cream Man’ revealed that she had been sexually assaulted by an unnamed producer.

“When you keep things in like that, they eat away at you from the inside,” RAYE told the BBC in an interview. “And for me, sadly, substance abuse was entangled with numbing the trauma that I had experienced.”

She continued: “I got pretty deep in and it got really dangerous at one point.”

Gaz Coombes was worried Supergrass reunion would be a “backward step”

“Having got into a flow and the last two albums having done so well, it seemed a bit odd, like a backward step,” he said. “But then I was confident that I could operate both things together and it seems that I did, because I was obviously writing this record mainly during the reunion so I feel like I made best use of both things.”

Supergrass originally split up in 2010, citing creative differences, but Coombes has now said that he left the band because it was no longer making him happy. “I didn’t leave Supergrass to go solo. I left because I wasn’t enjoying it, and it wasn’t making me happy. So I needed to get myself happy. I realised that just because I wasn’t in the band didn’t mean I was going to stop.”

Coombes released his solo debut, ‘Here Comes The Bombs’, in 2012. Speaking about the record, he said: “It was transitional, there was definitely a hangover from Supergrass.”

Supergrass released a live album, ‘Live On Other Planets’, in 2020, to celebrate their 25th anniversary and raise raise money for grassroots venues affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. They later performed at the Taylor Hawkins tribute concert at Wembley Stadium in September, after which Coombes confirmed on his social media that it would be the band’s last show of their reunion.

Coombes commented on the possibility of another reunion in a recent interview with NME. “Reunions can’t go on forever and they’ve got to have some sort of lifespan. It was always gonna be that year, we were gonna do everything in 2020,” he said.

“But because of what happened with the pandemic, obviously it got spread out into two and a half, almost three years which is pretty crazy. But it’s cool that it ended in a way where we could definitely look at the possibility of other shows down the line if it feels right and if everyone’s in the right place.”

Police called to disturbance at Gary Glitter bail hostel

Protesters outside the bail hostel, which is in a residential area, reportedly demanded yesterday (February 4) that he be removed from their neighbourhood. One man attempted to scale a fence [via SkyNews].

A Hampshire police spokesperson said last night: “Police were called at 3.32pm today to reports of a public order incident. Officers attended the scene and the situation was resolved. No arrests were made.”

Glitter is now subject to licence conditions. Confirming Glitter’s release, a Ministry of Justice spokesman said: “Sex offenders like Paul Gadd are closely monitored by the police and Probation Service and face some of the strictest licence conditions, including being fitted with a GPS tag.

“If the offender breaches these conditions at any point, they can go back behind bars.”

Glitter had sexually abused two girls, aged 12 and 13, after inviting them backstage to his dressing room. He had attempted to rape another girl, who was under 10 years old, in 1975.

Glitter was previously convicted in 1999 for possession of child pornography and served four months in prison. After his release he relocated to Vietnam, where he was subsequently convicted for child sex abuse offences and spent another two-and-a-half years in prison.

STONE share raucous party anthem ‘I Let Go’

“The song is about how out of control you can become when going out, and even though you know getting drunk and partying isn’t good for you, it’s so fun in the moment,” they added.

Check out the track below:

STONE released their debut EP last November after signing with Polydor Records and featuring in the NME 100.

In a four-star review, NME wrote: “Though ‘Punkadonk’ is just five tracks long, it never stays in one place long enough for the listener to get a complete handle on it. Rather than follow safely in the footsteps of the northern stars they’ve been on the road with, STONE have used their first EP as an opportunity to build upon their own punchy identity.”

Speaking to NME back in 2021, STONE’s frontman Finlay Power said “I just need to get in front of those crowds – it’s all about the live performance for us. Put me in a room with anyone and I will convert them all to fall in love with the band.”

The band are currently on tour in Europe supporting indie legends The Kooks, ahead of a UK headline run of their own and appearances at the likes of The Great Escape, Kendal Calling and Barn On The Farm. See the full list of dates below and grab tickets here.

In the linear notes of some of the band’s collections released over the last decade, they had dismissed the idea of a reunion altogether. “When we put Unwound on the shelf in 2002, we never thought we’d return to the project,” drummer Sara Lund said in a statement about their reunion last year. “Starting over again is a rebellious act against our failure,” guitarist Justin Trosper added.

The band held its first reunion practice, secretly, in April 2022, according to a press statement.

The band’s bassist, Vern Rumsey, died in 2020 aged 47. Rumsey formed Unwound with guitarist/vocalist Justin Trosper and drummer Brandt Sandeno in 1991, with Sara Lund replacing Sandeno the following year. Rumsey performed on every Unwound record, from their self-titled 1991 debut until their eighth and final album, 2001’s critically-acclaimed ‘Leaves Turn Inside You’. Unwound broke up a year later in 2002.

Jared Warren who has worked with the likes of Karp, Melvins, and Big Business will be playing bass for the band’s upcoming concerts.

Scott Seckington of Nocturnal Habits has also joined the band on guitar and keyboards.

Jack White to perform on ‘Saturday Night Live’ later this month

In 2020, White stepped in last minute to give ‘Lazaretto’ an airing, alongside a medley that featured The White Stripes’ ‘Ball And Biscuit’ and Beyoncé’s ‘Don’t Hurt Yourself’.

 

So far this year, Saturday Night Live has featured performances from Coldplay, Sam Smith and Lil Baby.

Smith performed their ‘Gloria’ title track and was joined by Kim Petras for a run-through of their viral smash ‘Unholy’ while Lil Baby performed two tracks from ‘It’s Only Me’, ‘Californian Breeze’ and ‘Forever’.

Last night (February 4) Coldplay took to Saturday Night Live to perform ‘Human Heart’, ‘The Astronaut’ and ‘Fix You’ with a choir.

Meanwhile, Jack White is reportedly set to appear in Martin Scorsese‘s new film, Killers Of The Flower Moon.

Killers Of The Flower Moon, which stars Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio, is based on a book of the same name. The western – Scorsese’s first – will investigate the murders of the native Osage people in 1920s Oklahoma, where oil deposits were discovered.

White’s previous acting roles include playing Elvis Presley in in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, alongside a role in Anthony Minghella’s 2003 period war film Cold Mountain.

It comes after Fall Out Boy’s North American headline tour was revealed earlier this week, featuring special guests Bring Me The Horizon, Alkaline Trio, Royal & The Serpent and more.

Kicking off with a headline stadium show at Chicago’s Wrigley Field on June 21, Fall Out Boy’s North American headline tour will finish August 6. Tickets are on sale now.

The run of shows is in support of upcoming album ‘So Much (For) Stardust’, which is out March 24. 

Speaking to NME about the album, Stump explained “it’s not a throwback record” despite the guitar-heavy first single.

“I didn’t want to go back to a specific style, but I wanted to imagine what would it have sounded like if we had made a record right after ‘Folie à Deux’ [Fall Out Boy’s divisive 2009 album] instead of taking a break for a few years,” he continued. “It was like exploring the multiverse. It was an experiment in seeing what we would have done.”

Watch Toyah Willcox and Robert Fripp cover The Tubes’ ‘White Punks On Dope’

Check out Willcox and Fripp’s take on ‘White Punks On Dope’ below:

In recent weeks, the pair have covered Crüe’s ‘Shout At The Devil’, KISS classic ‘I Was Made For Lovin You’ and The Offspring’s ‘The Kids Aren’t Alright’. Other rock classics like Black Sabbath’s ‘Paranoid’, Korn’s ‘Blind’, Megadeth’s ‘Holy Wars’ and Metallica’s ‘Seek And Destroy’ have also had the Sunday Lunch treatment.

Sunday Lunch kicked off in 2020, with Willcox explaining that she started the videos to help Fripp power through the COVID-19 lockdowns. Speaking to NME, she said that in the future, they were “going to take it a lot further”.

Last year, Fripp revealed that the series had upset some King Crimson fans. “My wife insists performers have a responsibility to lift people’s spirits in hard times. Do I respect that? My answer is yes, completely and utterly I do,” Fripp said in response.

“We’re keenly aware of what people have experienced during lockdown. I mean, banged up in a small apartment while your mother’s dying and you can’t go to the funeral. My wife said to me, if all we’ve done in two years is help one person through their bad time, it’s all worth it,” he added.

Later this year, Fripp and Willcox will take Sunday Lunch on the road. They announced a joint 2023 tour back in June while the full itinerary and ticket details can be seen here.

Worst Party Ever cancel shows due to frontman’s “toxic” behaviour

“I created a very toxic environment and caused a lot of pain and trauma to both of their lives by love bombing and trying to get them to continue seeing me.”

All future tours will be cancelled and will be refunded at the point of purchase. it’s important to put mental health before everything and have accountability when you fuck up. pic.twitter.com/550S4jsyWv

— worst party ever (@wrstprtyevr) February 2, 2023

He continued: “within my long term relationship with my partner of two years, l’ve consistently invalidated their emotions and avoided conflict by shutting down and creating a toxic environment for her. my [behaviour] was inexcusable and it’s wrong to be such a selfish individual. it’s important for me to take accountability and seek professional help to not allow this to happen again. I’ve constantly talked about therapy and [counselling] but have never followed through. it’s important to know the damage that i’ve caused people, and the consequences of my actions. I’m incredibly sorry to my long term partner and the people involved in the situation.

“I am now going to focus on therapy and bettering myself as a human being, as I’ve done irreparable damage to people that cared about me.”

Worst Party Ever were a DIY, indie-emo project from consisted of Schueneman, Michael Galvano, Benjamin Durshimer, and Kyle Meggison. While members and lineups have changed over the years, Schueneman has remained the band’s frontman and rhythm guitarist since their debut release in 2014.

Their last album, Dartland, was released in 2022.

Phoebe Bridgers has teamed up with Catbird for new lyric-themed jewellery collection

“It’s here!” Catbird wrote in a post announcing the collection. “A collection of charms that are a celebration of friendship, of feeing, and of the unknown.”

“I exclusively wear Catbird and have for years, because nobody makes jewellery small enough for my taste except for them,” Bridgers told Vogue. “Since my first tour I’ve been wearing this stuff, like the safety pin earring, and the tiniest, tiniest studs. An ex got me a little charm necklace that I wear all the time and people are always giving me skeleton stuff. It’s amazing — it’s like having my own wedding registry.”

Bridgers also told the magazine that the brand is donating $25,000 (£21,000) to the National Center for Transgender Equality.

“With such a historically gendered thing as jewellery, it felt special to be able to point to the stuff I care about and not participate in the archaic views around it,” Bridgers said. “Especially something that is so related to class. It’s cool to be using diamonds and pearls to pay for trans rights.”

In other news, Kristen Stewart will direct three upcoming music videos for Bridgers’ indie supergroup Boygenius, which also includes Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker.

The collaboration was revealed in a recent Rolling Stone story compiling outtakes from the magazine’s recent interview with the trio. Stewart’s previous credits as a director include a video for a live, reworked version of Chrvches‘ ‘Down Side of Me’ that was released in 2017.

While it’s not clear which songs from the band’s upcoming debut album ‘The Record’ Stewart will direct videos for, they did simultaneously release three singles from it – ‘$20’, ‘Emily I’m Sorry’ and ‘True Blue’ – last week.

‘The Record’ is set to arrive on March 31 via Polydor/Interscope. It will mark the trio’s first full-length project, following on from self-titled 2018 EP. In a five-star review of that EP, NME called it “a record that leaves you yearning for more”, adding that it “would be astonishing regardless of the length of time it took to make, but it becomes even more so when you learn these songs were created in a matter of days”.

The true identity of Norway’s 2022 Eurovision entry Subwoolfer has been revealed

The duo have been revealed to be Ben Adams from nineties boyband A1 and Norwegian musician and Idol runner up, Gaute Ormåsen.

Throughout 2022, there was much speculation about the identity of the duo whose faces were concealed behind comical yellow wolf masks.

Adams said of the Eurovision experience: “It’s been the weirdest year of our lives – and keeping ‘the worst kept secret in Norway’ has been challenging! From Alan Walker to Tix to Ylvis to other randoms, the rumour mill has been a wild ride. But we rode it. One question remains…who is DJ Astronaut!? See you on the other side for Subwoolfer 2.0!”.

You can listen to their new song here:

The duo were originally 50-1 to win last year’s Eurovision in Italy with their track ‘Give That Wolf A Banana’. However, they finished the competition in 10th place with 182 points, some way off the winners, Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra and UK runner up Sam Ryder.

Soon after the competition, the band posted a video of themselves around Turin performing a parody of Dolly Parton‘s famous hit ‘Jolene’.

Reviewing last year’s Eurovision night, NME wrote: “Eurovision 2022 was all about looking forward: Sam Ryder reminding us that the UK can actually win this thing, and Ukraine showing the world just how much agency it has. Yes, the contest can be silly – hello, ‘Give That Wolf A Banana’ – but it’s also strangely and fundamentally profound.”

Meanwhile, the stage design for this year’s Eurovision was revealed this week.
Designed by New York firm Yellow Studio, the stage is meant to look like a wide hug enfolding the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool, where the contest is being held, reflecting the country opening its arms to Ukraine. Last year’s contest was won by Kalush Orchestra, but Ukraine were unable to host Eurovision 2023 due to its ongoing invasion by Russian forces.

The design connects the stage, performers, audience and green room as one structure, offering the contestants multiple performance locations. Per a press release, it is also designed to “demonstrate how music can transcend borders and bring people together as one unit”.

Eurovision 2023 will take place at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool on Saturday May 13. It was chosen as the host city back in October, fending off competition from Glasgow.

Paramore’s Hayley Williams reveals she wants to play shows with band Shame

“When you listen to them, you really enter into their world, their headspace, and I love that. Their last album, from 2021, was called ‘Drunk Tank Pink’ – my favourite song on that record is ‘Human, For A Minute’. I’m so stoked to see what they do next. And I hope we get to play shows with them.”

Shame CREDIT: Eddie Miles for NME

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that Phoebe Bridgers has a hidden cameo on Shame’s upcoming third album ‘Food For Worms’.

The south London band spoke to NME for a Big Read cover story last month ahead of the release of the new record.

Speaking about the song ‘Adderall’, Shame revealed that the track features a special, secret appearance from their Dead Oceans labelmate Bridgers. “We thought the song had an American edge to it, and thought it would sound nice with a woman’s voice,” drummer Charlie Forbes said.

“By chance, she was recording in the same studio as us, and one day we did a trade where Josh went and did some tambourine on her new track, and she came in and did the vocal line on our track – which you can’t actually hear at all.”

Asked if the band had been able to hang out with the indie star since social distancing measures were lifted, he added: “We went to an afterparty at her mum’s house after we played in LA. There was an in-house tarot reader, sushi, vegan Mexican food and tequila cocktails.”

Check out the full Big Read cover interview with Shame here, where they also talk about the making of ‘Food For Worms’ with super-producer Mark ‘Flood’ Ellis, honing their work ethic, and breaking through writer’s block by returning to their old stomping ground of Brixton Windmill for a secret show of entirely new material.

‘Food For Worms’ is released on February 24. The band debuted new tracks from the record in November at a special launch gig on a boat in the River Thames, which NME described as the band’s “ideal setting: intimate, loud and chaotic”.

Meanwhile, Paramore recently revealed that they’re offering the chance for fans to hear their new album early at select indie record stores around the world ahead of its release. 

The band have teamed up with independent record stores in Europe, North America, Latin America and Australia to let fans hear ‘This Is Why’, which is out on February 10, before it is released. All of the events are free to attend.

“Head to one of the below indie record stores to join your local This Is Why Global Listening Event,” the band said. “Hear the new album before it’s released, come for exclusive giveaways, and pre-order This Is Why (out February 10) at your local store.”
