A best-selling autobiography. A new label deal. A possible novel in the works. An upcoming spring tour. Yes, everything is falling into place once again for alt-pop icon Morrissey, whose last LP, Years Of Refusal, was released over five years ago. Now that album, his 10th, has a typically Moz-esque title: World Peace Is None Of Your Business.
Shake a fist and roll your eyes all you want — there’s no denying that the lone-wolf, Manchester, England, crooner has a way with words. Today the Morrissey-sanctioned fansite TrueToYou.net posted that the upcoming record “has been provisionally set for late June/early July release worldwide by Harvest Records thru Capitol. Morrissey is said to be ‘beyond ecstatic’ with the album, all 12 tracks of which were produced by Joe Chiccarelli in France.” More »
Happy Friday, Idolator readers! There was no shortage of the pop action this week. (Is there ever?!) Iggy Azalea dropped her UH-amazing Clueless-themed video for “Fancy” with Charli XCX, Ashanti dropped her long-awaited LP Braveheart, Coldplay supplied some surprise “Magic” and of course, Miley and Katy traded playfully shady swipes on Twitter over their recent tonsil action in concert.

Elliphant has made huge waves with her wild child ways and experimental approach to pop — two characteristics that will, no doubt, be on display on the Swedish diva’s new EP Look Like You Love It, which drops April 1. It includes contributions from producers Diplo and Skrillex and promises to be generally awesome.
To prepare your senses for Ellinor Olovsdotter‘s (her real name) much-anticipated EP, listen to new track “Revolusion”. It’s raw, bonkers and completely addictive. In other words — quintessentially Elliphant. Oh and make sure you check out her live shows. The “Music Is Life” singer just announced tour dates in Los Angeles and New York. More details after the jump. More »
Irish rockers Kodaline won a huge international following with debut LP In A Perfect World, so it was almost inevitable that the US would also fell under their spell. The four-piece band dropped by American Idol last night (March 6) to perform new single “All I Want” and were typically spectacular.
These guys are so tight. Steve Garrigan‘s vocal is a thing of beauty and their musicianship is beyond repute. It looks like American Idol viewers were just as impress. After Kodaline’s epic performance their album shot to number 16 on iTunes and “All I Want” — a tale of heartbreak and loss — rocketed into the top 100. Watch up top. More »
Here’s some great news for your Friday afternoon. Madonna is working on new music with Swedish super-producer Avicii, who has carved out a niche as the king of pop-friendly EDM with mega-hits like “Wake Me Up” and “Hey Brother”. The legendary diva casually announced the news in an Instagram update, commenting: “Doing some house work before heading to the studio with Avicci!”
There’s so much to love about this but let’s start with the fact that Madonna was scrubbing her bathroom in fishnet stockings (above) and couldn’t be bothered spell-checking Avicii’s name. More excitingly, this indicates that the 55-year-old is taking it back to the clubs on her 13th album after dabbling in hip-hop — rather unsuccessfully — on MDNA and Hard Candy. Let’s all pray for some Confessions On A Dance Floor realness! See her post after the jump. More »
Robin Thicke should stop dedicating songs to estranged wife Paula Patton at concerts and make a collage of her prettiest red carpet snaps and put it on Instagram. It sure did the trick for Justin Bieber. Less than a week after his now infamous ‘elegant princess’ post, the Canadian superstar appears to have won Selena Gomez back.
The lovebirds were snapped in Hidalgo, Texas (where Selena is performing this weekend) by paparazzi while they hung out at Starbucks. The Stars Dance diva later posted a picture with a Starbucks coffee on her Instagram. Who knows — maybe they were both craving caffeine and ended up at the same store? Yeah, not very likely. More »
