The Vaccines


The Vaccines Download HereH ave revealed that they will be heading into the studio in March to record their second album and that Ryan Adams/Kings Of Leon     Download Here producer Ethan Johns will be at the controls.

The band, who are currently touring Australia, will record the follow-up to their successful debut album 'What Did You Expect From The Vaccines' in Belgium and have said that it will "definitely" come out this year.

Speaking to NME, frontman Justin Young said of how the band's second album was shaping up: "It's mostly written and we're going into the studio in Belgium in March to start recording so it'll definitely be out this year, without a doubt. We've definitely got six songs written that we all want to be on the record, but there's tonnes of other new songs and we're actually going into the studio out in Australia to work on ideas. I think we're in a good place with it and it's quite exciting."

Asked about what producer the band would be working with, Young revealed that it was Ethan Johns and that the band had been looking to work with him as he gives "warmth" to the albums he records.

Speaking about who the band would be working with as producer on their second album, Young replied "It's Ethan Johns", then asked why the band had opted for him, the singer said:
The reason we wanted to work with Ethan is not because he's a hit manufacturer, but he's a real songs man. If you listen to the records he's made, there's a real warmth there, all his albums are simple, but really well crafted and it feels like they really breathe. Our first record is quite linear, so it'd be nice to have something that breathes a bit more and with a bit more warmth and maturity, but that still sounds like us.

Young also spoke about which bits of Johns' work had made them want to work with him, revealing that Ryan Adams' 'Heartbreaker' was a particular favourite of his.

He said: "'Heartbreaker' is amazing. When I first heard that when I was 17 and it's still one of my favourite records of all time. I like his Laura Marling records and I think the first three Kings Of Leon records are great pop records. He also did Whiskeytown, who are one of our favourite bands, so to work with a producer like him and to be able to share ideas with him will be really exciting."

The Vaccines will tour the UK next May, playing four seaside dates. The jaunt will kick off at Dundee Caird Hall on May 2 before wrapping up with a gig at Brighton Centre on May 7.

It is currently unknown why Scherzinger is leaving the programme, with a source suggesting to E! Online: "She wants to focus on her music career. She's spoken to Simon [Cowell] and he's given her his blessing,
"X Factor took a lot more of her time than she ever expected. She didn't have any time really to work on her music. She was doing X Factor six days a week."

Jack White

Jack White: 'I didn't think about recording under my own name for a long time'

Ja

He added that he only got around to recording his own material in his studio in Nashville because an unnamed artist failed to show up for their session. White explained: "A few months ago, we had a session booked and someone didn't show up, so I said, 'I guess we'll do some of my songs'... It kickstarted the whole process." Racontears

ite: 'I didn't think about recording under my own name for a long tim


Jack White explained that most of the songs on the album were written recently, after that first 'accidental' session. He said of his solo songs: "I only had a couple at first… when you're in The Dead Weather, all four of us wrote songs together in the same room, so I would never write songs on my own for that band."

He also explained that when he was in The White Stripes Download Here he always felt like he and drummer Meg White were "covering" Jack White songs, adding that he can never think of a song as his own when performing it, and even now he feels like he is playing cover versions of his own material.

Produced by White at his own Third Man Studio in Nashville, 'Love Interrpution' comes backed with non-album B-side 'Machine Gun Silhouette' – which is available for pre-order from JackWhiteIII.com and Thirdmanrecords.com.

The unveiling of the material comes almost a year to the day (February 2, 2011) that The White Stripes announced announced they had split up. A statement released by the duo claimed that artistic differences, health issues or a "lack of wanting to continue" were not the reasons for the split.
In the 12 months since the end of the band, White has kept himself busy with collaborations and production work at his Third Man Records label, working with Insane Clown Posse, Tom Jones, US comic Stephen Colbert and rappers Black Milk.

Russell Brand


RUSSELL Brand’s back in the game.Russell Brand

Randy Russell Brand, 36, was surrounded by a gaggle of girls in a Hollywood club.

We’re told: “Russ was in Lexington Social House in Hollywood and was, within 10 minutes, hounded by beautiful women.

“He looked like he was enjoying himself. He was cracking jokes and had the girls in fits of laughter.

“One of them told him he was wasted as a married man. Russ seemed a bit put off by that comment.

“He bought them a round of drinks and sent them on their way.”
Let the pineapple see the chunk. "Single manReveal yourself!"

Jessie J


JESSIE J admits she has no backstage demands.

The Voice judge, 23, revealed: “All my crew are always saying I should act more diva-ish but there is not really much point.

“As long as I have my peppermint tea and salt and vinegar Snack-a-jacks I’m all good.

“I’m actually quite boring really.”

Elton John


Elton John     Download Here  was always going to get Madonna  back for beating him to a Golden Globe this month and - much to his own (and our) amusement - he saved his attack for live television.

The 64 year old said: "Make sure you lip-synch good".During an appearance on America TV earlier, Elton was asked what advice he had for Madonna Download Hereahead of her half time performance at Sunday's Super Bowl. At this point, a mischievous Elton saw his opportunity for revenge and he took it.
Elton then went on to imply that Madonna's Super Bowel show will be rubbish, saying: "I’ve never seen a decent one. Never ever.You have to play live, but I don’t think you can. In all fairness to everyone who’s done one before, you may be able to sing live, but it’s really hard to play live."
Elton's catty comments are sure to make Madonna feel a tad under pressure, with the singer rehearsing solidly for the last two weeks. It's thought that she will sing four songs, including Vogue and Give Me All Your Luvin (spelt that way to make sure everyone still think she's cool), while bendy types from Cirque du Soleil prance about in the background.
Although Madonna is yet to snipe back at Elton, the Brit has been on her back since she beat him to Best Original Song at the Golden Globes two weeks ago. Speaking before the event on the red carpet, Elton was offended that Madge had even made it into the category, telling reporters she had no "f***ing chance of winning" over him.
And after she did win, Elton's husband David Furnish wrote on Facebook: "Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism."
If Madonna's speech was embarrassing, then Elton's behaviour before - and since - is like, way embarrassing. And we're not even mentioning the fact that he was dressed as an actual king while doing this interview.

Labrinth


Labrinth: "Last Time Is Going To Smash Earthquake


Labrinth Download HERE  has exclusively spoken to MTV.co.uk about his new single Last Time, stating that the tune is his way of getting a few things off his chest.
The Earthquake hitmaker, who unveiled the track earlier today (30th January), said of the song: "I think it shows another side to what I’m about. I know a lot of people were expecting a more urban/ dub-step kind of record but with this single, I’ve got a lot to get off my chest.
"It’s got like disco-melodies and strings - which you don’t really get in songs much. It’s quite electronic, but when you really listen to the detail of the music, you can understand that it’s really musical, and I think it shows another side."
The super-producer added: "That’s what Labrinth is about, it’s what happens in a labyrinth - you never know what's gonna happen around the corner."
Speaking of surprises, Lab revealed that Hollywood stars Leonardo Dicaprio Download Here , Jamie Foxx and director Steven Spielberg interrupted filming of the Last Time video in Los Angeles.
The 22-year old claimed: "They turned up at the end of the video shoot. We only had a certain amount of time, we had like early in the morning until 9 o’clock in LA and they came in.
"They didn’t gatecrash as we over ran over, but on the other side of the field they were letting off explosions and setting up for a new film and I was a bit like 'well, I’m trying to make a video here!' It was amazing though, it was a moment in my life when I thought 'am I really here?'"
He went on to joke: "We didn’t get to meet them, but hopefully they’ll be in the video next year, but I think the video for Last Time is going to totally smash Earthquake."
As for his debut album Electronic Earth, Lab - real name Timothy McKenzie - revealed that the likes of Emeli Sande are expected to feature, and that he's in talks with US rapper J.Cole about making an appearance.
He explained: "I've worked with Emeli Sande Download Here – we’ve actually done a duet on this album called Beneath You’re Beautiful. I think the song is again another side of me that people haven’t seen yet.
"To me, the record is like the landscape of my mind and if you could see all the different sides, it's very healthy and will help people to get to know what I'm about. They will see that on the album.
"I've also worked with Mike Posner, but he’s not on the record. He helped me write a song on the album. "
He also admitted: "At the moment, I’m on the phone to J.Cole and we are talking about getting one more thing done on the album before we fully wrap it.
"We already have the idea but I think he’s excited about it. It’s a bit of a weird one, you wouldn’t expect J.Cole to be on this record."
Labrinth also recently told us that he's in talks with N-Dubz singer and X Factor judgeTulisa Contostavlos about working on her debut solo LP, stating he's "sure something will happen" between them in the future.
