‘In This Together’ will be the first single off the new album that is yet to be given a title by the band.

Online streaming service Netflix has announced that ‘House of Cards’ will return for a fourth season. With all 13 episodes of the third season being released in February, it was announced this week that the political drama would be renewed for another season to air in 2016.
Kevin Spacey, who stars as the homicidal US President Francis Underwood, will return with co-star Robin Wright, who plays the wife and first lady to the Whitehouse. The season renewal is no surprise with both actors receiving Golden Globes for their performances on the show.

Sia has been very vocal about her struggles with stage fright and touring, but in an interview with NME she admitted that it’s becoming increasingly difficult to maintain her hardline stance of not playing live.
“I’m seeing some crazy numbers,” she says, speaking about offers on the table ”When they keep coming I’m like, ‘is it worth it now?’ because it could mean that I don’t ever have to do anything again.”
Melbourne has born many of Australian music’s biggest names; Kylie Minogue, Vance Joy, and 360 to name a few, but a singer-songwriter from Northcote is taking the world by storm. Courtney Barnett is being heralded by music bibles NME and Rolling Stone as the next big thing, and all before her album is released.
Penning songs about Melbourne life, her upcoming album, Sometimes I Sit and Think… Sometimes I Just Sit is hotly anticipated, with slightly magnified stories from her everyday life making up the content of the record.
Walt Jr. is swapping crystal meth for DJ decks, with the actor behind the Breaking Bad character, RJ Mitte, set to play an event in New York… aptly named Breaking Beats.
While a little left of field, his DJ spot on the Breaking Bad themed event line up isn’t unprecedented, with some of the other cast dabbling in music. Last year, his cast mate Aaron Paul (aka Jesse Pinkman) recorded a tongue in cheek house track based around his character’s signature catch phrase.

Pharrell Williams is a jack of all trades; a super producer, singer-songwriter, designer, giant hat enthusiast, and now, he can add author of children’s books to his already-long resume, signing a four book deal with Penguin Publishing, with his first book to be inspired by his hit song ‘Happy’.
“I’m humbled by the global success of Happy, but especially in awe of the song’s young fans… My collaboration with Penguin allows me to continue a dialogue with these children in a fresh, new way. We’re both committed to feeding the curiosity of young minds with imagination,” he said in a statement.
Superheroes are having a TV Renaissance, with Matt Murdock (aka Daredevil) joining the likes of The Flash, Green Arrow, and the Agents of SHIELD in getting his story brought to TV…and we’ve got your first look! Netflix have just released the first trailer for the ‘Daredevil‘ series and even in the short clip, it’s clear that it’s far superior to the forgettable (read: horrible) Ben Affleck-led films.
Starring British actor Charlie Cox, the 13 episode series will follow Matt, who was blinded as a boy but gifted with extraordinarily heightened senses, and his vigilante alter ego, Daredevil. Fighting injustice by day a tough-talking lawyer, before he takes on the city’s crime world by night as a masked vigilante.
After a week-long absence of the judge with the most glam hair, Keith’s finally back behind the panel’s desk after being covered by contestant-turned-guest judge, Adam Lambert, and he along with J-Lo and Harry are headed to Minneapolis hoping to find the next American Idol. Unfortunately, they don’t strike gold straight away (although there is a gold microphone involved).
Meet Kemil Casey. He carries a gold mic because it makes auditioning more realistic, he says…more than actually singing, I guess? He attempts a cover of Michael Jackson’s Human Nature and more than anything else, proved that some songs aren’t meant to be covered. It’s a no from the judges, but Jennifer reckons he’d make a brilliant manager.
