Morning Music Notes – Re-Enter the Wu-Tang
New Wu-Tang Album Coming Soon – Don’t Lie to Me, Internet!
Last month, we reported that RZA was keen on doing a new Wu-Tang Clan album as part of their 20th anniversary celebrations. It appears that it might’ve been smoke and mirrors for a recording process that was already happening. The band posted on their Facebook page, “New WU TANG CLAN Album coming soon.”
No details were released along with the short Facebook post. Instead, hundreds of fans battled to see who could write “First!” in the comments section.
Unofficial Justin Bieber Sex Doll Being Made
Pipedream Products have make an unofficial Justin Bieber blow-up sex doll which will
fulfill my fantasties no doubt bring some kind of lawsuit. At least the sex doll and Bieber have similar personalities. For $26, you could owe the Just-in Beaver sex doll, which gets no points for original puns.
And since you wanted to know, the company’s product blurb notes that “Beaver” is a “barely legal boy-toy who’s waited 18 long years to stick his lil’ dicky in something sticky! When he’s not busy beating up paparazzi or beating off, he’s up to his high-tops in hot Hollywood tail!” (via NME)
Sold! To you, not me.
Coldplay’s Will Champion to Play Drummer in Game of Thrones
Will Champion, of Coldplay drumming and awesome name fame, will have a cameo role in season 3 of the Game of Thrones (via NME). What will he be doing? Fighting dragons? Leading men into battle? Nope, he’ll be doing something much more imaginative – he’ll be playing a drummer. No word on exactly what drummer he’ll be playing, but my guess is (minor SPOILER ALERT) he might be at a certain red wedding.
Gary Lightbody from Snow Patrol also has a role in the third season, but it is not known what he will be doing. Maybe singing bloated, mainstream sad songs? Season 3 kicks off March 31, 2013, and if you can’t wait until then – try picking up one of the books.
Jay-Z Does 99 Problems at Obama Rally, Switches the Lyrics
Jay-Z did a little lyrical switch up at Obama’s rally in Columbus. When performing 99 Problems, instead of singing “I got 99 problems but a bitch ain’t one” (which isn’t Presidential rally appropriate I guess), he rapped “I got 99 problems but Mitt ain’t one”. He also added “if you’re having world problems” (instead of girl problems). Not lyrically deep, I know, but apparently this wasn’t clear with Obama – or so he says (via Hollywood Reporter).

Watch! Fear of Men – Mosaic
Check out a new video from English band Fear of Men. The two boy, two girl band have released a series of singles, and now have a video for Mosaic, which was shot in a church. Usually the phrase “shot in a church” is related to some kind of religious violence, but it’s musical for once.
Check it out below, and check out their SoundCloud page if you want to hear more (via Gorilla vs Bear).
