Some newsy bits

  • REM's new album is called Around The Sun and it's out on Oct 5. The single is "Leaving New York" - gee, what is that about?!
  • Simple Minds are old enough to have a 5 disc box set called Silver Box that has no previously released material. Good Lord. For the hardcore fans - are they called simpletons?
  • The Blue Nile's album includes the beautiful song "Soul Boy" that Paul wrote for Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice) - the only good song on her last (and last?) album. More here, from a fan
  • Kirsty MacColl finally gets a 3 CD box set. The tracklist (you have to go through 3 screens starting with this link) covers everything important, plus tons of rarities. I still am sad that she died.
  • Paris Hilton's CD is called Paris Is Burning, which I will admit I find clever.
  • Duran Duran's CD comes out in October and is being called Astronauts. Stupidly, the first single is "Sunrise" an oh-so-eh track already released on the Queer Eye soundtrack.
