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”.

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.

Is there a KISS reunion tour on the horizon? According to Ace Frehley, there is a slight possibility of it happening! Ace stated in an interview today that he is entertaining an idea that KISS could jump back on the reunion tour bus with him on it, however would be ‘fine’ if it didn’t happen. Other frontman Paul Stanley was only fuel to the fire of this news, as he was a guest feature on Ace’s solo album.
He told an interviewer that the relationship between them was never as poor as it was made out to be, or perceived by the public eye. Throughout his founding of the band, Ace was in the band from 1973 to 1982, leaving and then returning over a decade later, only to leave again.
Ace tells his interviewer that while the band DOES have disagreements and things are often said, they’ve always been friends with him, just like he’s always been a friend to them. Adding into the fact that there were times in which the members didn’t talk, they can’t overlook the fact that they created something that above all else, withstood the ultimate test of time.
“Rumors are rumors” he says and that he ‘hasn’t been contacted’ If it could be done in a way that would end the career of KISS as a whole in a great way, he’d like to do it.
“Those guys run the show these days. I’m doing my thing and they’re doing their thing. If it happens it would be great. If it doesn’t I’ll be fine and they’ll be fine”, he says.
What do you think? Would you like to see KISS reunite one more time? What would you do if you were able to see them one last time?!
After a mental breakdown, tons of criticism from his fans and non-fans alike, Kanye West has finally left the hospital, and returned back to his home. Departing from the UCLA Medical Center, ‘Ye left the hospital accompanied by his wife Kim Kardashian. According to recent reports, Kanye will still be under the watchful eye of his physician Michael Farzam, who was the one to call 911 and have West admitted into the hospital. Kanye will be spending this time with his children, family and wife.
There seems to be a ton on the plate of West, who recently cancelled shows for his Saint Pablo Tour indefinitely, as well as a recent album release, and the anniversary of the death of his mother. Additionally, working closely with Adidas, Kanye and their team have been hard at work designing new forms of the Yeezy Boost 350 and 750, which are selling for upwards of $2,000 on secondary markets.
While it’s unclear as to what is the exact cause of Kanye’s original breakdown, there is a clearly a lot of stress on the artist within the past six months. It’s not unheard of to go through hard times and while his departure from the hospital points to good things, there is likely much more time to be spent recovering from this incident than many have speculated.
Our thoughts are with the West/Kardashian family.

Following a tragic death, an arrest has finally been made in the death of 3 Doors Down guitarist Matt Roberts. Roberts, just 38 when he died, died from a prescription drug overdose in a hotel just outside of Milwaukee. Roberts served as the lead guitarist of the band from their inception in 1996 until 2012 when he left the band for health reasons.
During his departure, Roberts stated that this was due to performing near 300 dates per year, and the band having exacerbated health and circulation issues that he was currently dealing with. He continued to mention that the band would always hold a special place in his heart, but needed to take this time off for his own health.
Police have now made the arrest of a doctor who was reportedly in connection with Roberts prior to his death.

Throughout his time as physician, Snellgrove (the accused) prescribed Roberts 5 different controlled substances in the names of different individuals, but (police) also have stated that the intended recipient of the drugs were all for Roberts.

Free Mp3 Downloads
There are basically two main reasons you are able to find free MP3 music downloads so easily. The first one is because a lot of musicians find it very difficult to get into the music business. Often times when you go through a big record label companies, they will try to mold and groom you into something they want you to be.
These days more and more people are refusing to change their image to please a record label. They therefore set out to make things happen on their own. Setting out to do things on your own can sometimes be extremely difficult. That’s why many up and coming musicians will use free MP3 music downloads to help get their music out.
Giving away free tracks is a great way to build a loyal following. If they like what they hear they will have no problem paying for your tracks later on down the road.
Another reason it is so easy to find free MP3 music downloads is because big record labels see the value in giving away a few free tracks right before an artist comes out with a new album. It let’s the fans hear a small sample of what’s soon to come. This allows them to hear before they buy. If they like what they hear they will be more likely to purchase other downloadable tracks from the album.
And to prove the point even more there have been several studies that show people buy an album after listening to it online.
