The rumors are true — Kylie Minogue‘s unreleased X era song “Flower” will finally see the light of day, at least as it was performed by the Aussie singer at London’s Abbey Road Studios last year. Kylie hit up the famed establishment for a gig in late 2011 that saw her past songs getting an orchestral makeover. (She also spent several weeks recording there for a proper release of the new versions.) Sixteen of those tracks — including “Flower” and Minogue classics like “I Should Be So Lucky”, “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head”, “Confide In Me” and “All The Lovers” — have been rounded up for LP The Abbey Road Sessions, which has an October 29 release overseas. UPDATE: The album now has a US release date of November 6. More »

David Guetta is the latest artist to get the re-packaged album treatment, as his 2011 LP Nothing But The Beat will be re-released — as Nothing But The Beat 2.0, naturally — on September 10. The set will come with eight new tracks, including the recently surfaced Sia collaboration “She Wolf (Falling To Pieces)”.

Also along for the ride: Ne-Yo and Akon, who pair up for a track called “Play Hard”, and two pairs of twin sisters — Tegan & Sara (who are featured on the track “Every Chance We Get We Run”) and NERVO (“In My Head”). Sia will also feature on “Wild One 2″, which is more than likely an update of her Flo Rida collaboration “Wild Ones”.  The full tracklist lies below. More »

Mika has revealed the cover artwork for his third album The Origin of Love. Compared to his first two album covers, which were as colorful as Adventure Time if not The Magic School Bus, the Origin cover art is far more muted — save of course, for the globs-turned-crown of gold paint.

The Origin of Loveone of our most anticipated pop albums this year — was initially supposed to drop in March. Since then, the MDNA songwriter has pushed back its release to sometime this fall. More »

“Just chose the album art for my new album #girlonfire!!! Coming at you 11/27!!! R u excited?! I AM!!! ;-),” Keys tweeted this morning. She also posted a link to a video titled “A Journey To A Girl On Fire: No Reservations”. Watch below. More »

Following the releases of “Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free)”, “Lamborghini Angels” and “Bitch Bad”, controversial Chicago MC Lupe Fiasco has offered up the cover art for Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 (due out September 25). Actually, “cover art” might be a bit of a misstatement. Let’s go with cover color option?

Fiasco’s fourth LP serves as a sequel to 2006′s Food & Liquor, and he worked on the edgy set with such producers as Soundtrakk and Symbolyc One. Of course, he’s not the first artist to produce such a minimal black album sans hue — in 1991, Metallica released their self-titled LP (also known as The Black Album), which had a nearly-all-black cover, save for a barely visible cobra in the lower right corner and the band’s logo in the upper left corner. (And then there is, obviously, The BeatlesWhite Album).

Carly Rae Jepsen has the longest reigning single of 2012 with “Call Me Maybe”, which is a big enough smash to make her sophomore album, Kiss, a surefire hit. As to whether her LP can best Wiz Khalifa‘s O.N.I.F.C., The KillersBattle Born, Pink‘s The Truth About Love, Kreayshawn‘s Somethin’ Bout Kreay, and Kanye West‘s G.O.O.D. Music compilation Cruel Summer (as well as the 50 billion other albums released that day) and top the Billboard Album charts its first week out, we’ll see!

The 26-year-old released the cover of her new record, and opposed to the sepia-esque cover art of her previous LP, Tug Of War (which featured Carly staring off seriously at something a way’s away), this one basks in its pop sensibility, favoring pastels and a clear, classic shot of its star. We’re also relieved that Jepsen was somehow spared puckering up for the camera — we thank everyone involved for sidestepping that obvious shot to tie-in with the album title.
