Amy Winehouse’s Camden Home Up for Sale
The house that Amy Winehouse died in in North London has been listed for sale by her family (via Yahoo). I know people die in homes all the time, but living in a house where you KNOW someone died – and a famous musician, too – would be a touch odd. I wonder if it’ll be bought by a super fan or other artists seeking inspiration or heavenly intervention.
“Amy loved that house but none of the family felt it appropriate that they should live in it and it was not practical to keep it empty while paying the costs of its upkeep” a spokesman said in an email to Reuters. The property is reported listed for 2.7 million pounds, which is about 2.699999 million more pounds than I currently have to my name.
Bloc Party Announce Their Fourth Album, Aptly Named Four
An English band has reunited and named their fourth album after the numerical release number. No, we’re not talking about the Verve and Forth (which I assumed was a play on words) – we’re talking about Bloc Party. As I retweeted yesterday (since I was might’ve been drinking some beers and didn’t want to type 140 characters), Bloc Party have announced their new album will be called Four. From singer Kele Okereke’s blog:
“we have just finished mixing our new record. i am very proud of it. it is the best thing that we have ever done and finishing this record has taken us on quite a journey.”
“there have been babies, breakdowns, tantrums and hospitalisations but its finally here. we started making this record in NY in the winter of 2011. we didn’t want to let the world know so we told a lie that got out of hand but it made us laugh in the process, which brought us closer together.”
Of COURSE it’s the best thing you’ve done – EVERY band says that. There’s lots more
rambling interesting information at the blog post, so check it out if you’re so inclined. There’s also a 3.5 minute trailer you can check out below to get an idea of what their “best thing” that they have ever done sounds like. I’m actually kind of excited now.
