Ed Sheeran Album On The Way?

Famed singer Ed Sheeran hinted at new music on Instagram, which comes two years after his ‘x’ album in 2014. Many fans have been trying to decipher what his post means, though the indication is obvious that new music is on the horizon. When this album will release is anyone’s best guess, but we have a hunch that it’ll be sooner than later. What it also odd is this happened on Taylor Swift’s birthday, which may hint at another feature with both of them working on music collaboratively.

Ed changes his profile picture on all 3 social media handles to a shade of blue. This comes one year after a hiatus from the outlets, which caused an even bigger stir within the music community who so closely follows him. Amy Wadge who has worked with Sheeran on a number of projects hinted in an interview that his third LP will be releasing ‘very soon’ and will obviously make headlines and some top 200 charts. She also went on to say that he’s been preparing for this album for nearly a year.

Sheeran took a break from the music world last year when he concluded that he needed to utilize the time for family and other matters that have passed him by since his introduction to the limelight in 2012. Coming through on his promise, this tease comes one year after his hiatus and is an indication of great things to come, especially music. He is most known for his songs ‘Photograph’, ‘Thinking Out Loud’, and his duet with Taylor Swift ‘Everything Has Changed”.

Is There ANOTHER Rolling Stones Album On The Way?

Seeing as it’s been almost 11 years since we’ve seen a Rolling Stones album, it’s only fitting that after their most recent drop “Blue and Lonesome”, another album might be on the way. The first album which only featured covers of other songs has already bolted to, and may hold a spot at #1 in the U.K, as they’ve done multiple times throughout their career. Even more impressive was that Blue & Lonesome was recorded in just three days.

With this one a week old, new information has suggested that the band is looking forward to Volume #2. Keith Richards tells The Guardian that the original album happened by accident, and the bulk of it was recorded in just two days. Also suggested was late keyboard player Ian Stewart was sending a message from above.

With new reports now suggesting that volume 2 is in the works, it leaves a lot up for discussion in terms of the material that may or may not be released. According to the band, they were also recording an entirely new album of material, which would conflict the reports of a second cover album to follow this one. In terms of rock ‘n roll, anything is possible, right?

It should also be noted that Mick Jagger just had his SEVENTH child — no word on if this will affect the band’s ability to create or finish an album.

Kanye West’s Mental Breakdown Due To His Mother’s Death?

kanyeIt’s been a week and a few days since Kanye West suffered that complete and total breakdown.  First by cancelling his show at the L.A. Forum and then the following day, November 21st cancelling his entire tour and then hours later suffering the breakdown where cops were called and he was rushed to the hospital and put on a psych hold.  We may now know what caused this.  November 21st is the Anniversary of Kanye’s mothers death.  If you recall, Donda West died back around that date due to complications from plastic surgery.  He increasingly became emotional as that date approached and that along with touring, being a parent and providing emotional support for Kim who was robbed in Paris finally took its toll.  He’s also never fully grieved over his mom’s death and has always had problems around this time.  For now West remain hospitalized and sedated.  There’s no word when he will be released but regardless of your thoughts on him or his music, this was serious and we wish him luck in his recovery.

Pitbull being sued for jacking a guitar riff

pitbullMr 305 is deep in a lawsuit over stealing a guitar riff for his super hit “Timber”. A long time ago legendary funk singer William Underwood created a track called, “Weak at the Knees” and Underwood is claiming is court that Pit and sampled it and used it for Timber. It should be noted that Pitbull isn’t being directly sued but his publishing company who wrote the track is.  After listening to both we don’t hear the similarities but you be the judge:

Did Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom really break up?

Photo Courtesy of eonline.comMultiple stories surfaced a few days ago proclaiming Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom had broken up.  Pretty much right before Thanksgiving BUT photos on Instagram would dispute those claims.  Katy and Orlando took IG’s photos of the two enjoying delicious Turkey and Yams with Katy’s family.  So if they really did break up, wouldn’t it be highly unlikely they would be breaking bread together?  Seems to us like their 10 month relationship is going strong.  Gobble Gobble.
