That Didn’t Take Long – Justin Timberlake Announces New Album Follow Up
It seemed like just the other day Justin Timberlake was making bizarre video trailers to announce that he is making music again. Today, he releases his first album since before Dick in a Box, with his 20/20 Experience album. Last night, he addressed rumours of another album in the works (or already in the bag), saying “I’ve got to clear up the rumors. This whole thing about this only being the first part … is true. There is another half. I’m not giving you a release date” (via Yahoo).
Pro-Radiohead and anti-Timberlake fans might not like this next statement, when talking about album closer Blue Ocean Floor, “I’m a huge Thom Yorke (Radiohead frontman) fan, and I was listening to some ‘OK Computer’ and ‘Kid A’ and this song just happened. This is probably the most unique so far and probably took me out of my comfort zone.”
I can see the headlines now – “British prog rock band inspires former mouseketeer from Mickey Mouse Club.”
Barenaked Ladies Move On From Making Beer, Sign New Record Deal
Barenaked Ladies are celebrating their 25th anniversary of being a band by signing with Vanguard Records, releasing a new album, and going on a tour with Ben Folds Five and Guster (via Hollywood Reporter). 25 years – does this mean the rock and roll hall of fame will be calling? And I don’t know about you, but I think I liked the band more when they were making yummy beers.
