Daft Punk have left their long-standing label partners EMI/Virgin and have moved to Colombia Records – more importantly they are going to release an album in 2013. Rumoured collaborations (via The Guardian) with a pretty steamy roster of artists such as Chilly Gonzales, Oscar-winning songwriter Paul Williams, Panda Bear from Animal Collective and Giorgio Moroder.
2) Sigur Ros are going to release an album this year
Yes, more hyperbole than we can really handle this morning. Icelandic atmos-legends are going to release an album this year – you can check out one of their singles from it here:
3) Black Flag are going to re-form.. twice. With different members. But Henry Rollins is not going to be involved.
4) The Dirty Projectors covered Usher’s ‘Climax’ and it was … really, really great.
Find it here.
5) British Sea Power have announced that they are going to release an album and tour the UK this year.
All in all, it’s been an incredibly busy.. 3 hours.
See you tomorrow.
