Morning Music Notes

Jay-Z’s exclusive album app for Samsung isn’t so exclusive – like me, it has been cloned. Unlike me, the hacked app for Magna Carta Holy Grail displays anti-government messages (via NME)

Step 1 of what not to do at a concert: make a bomb-related tweet. If you do this, step 2 is clearly not to have a Twitter profile pic of yourself. A 16 year old Australian boy failed on both of these accounts at the Pink concert in Melbourne, and was arrested (via Billboard)

Mumford & Sons return to number 1 in the UK charts. Why is Babel randomly number 1 again after being released in 2012? They headlined Glastonbury last weekend – proof that concerts and big festivals can directly impact sales. Editors didn’t continue their streak of number 1 albums, landing at number 6 for their fourth album (via Gigwise)
