Fiona Apple piqued our interest early this month by announcing that her first album in eight years is finished, and she really piqued our interest a week later by spilling extensive details about the album -- which is titled Fetch The Bolt Cutters -- in a New Yorker profile. In fact, the article was so…
Sam Neill has thus far been a charming presence on Instagram during the coronavirus pandemic, posting pigs, poems, and a Randy Newman cover. Now the Jurassic Park actor has thrown his hat in the highly competitive field that is quarantine 2020 Radiohead covers.
Death Cab For Cutie's Ben Gibbard was an early adopter in the wave of livestreamed concerts that has arisen while many people isolate themselves in their homes to combat the spread of COVID-19. Sunday, for the 13th straight day, Gibbard sat down at home in Seattle and broadcast himself playing songs on YouTube. He said…
David Byrne has penned an essay on coronavirus and how we should be responding to it for Reasons To Be Cheerful, the online magazine he started last year.

Fiona Apple is encouraging artists to approve all sync requests right now and give the money to those who need it. In a video shared by her friend Zelda Hallman, Apple explains her thought process (in characteristically engaging fashion):…

Fiona Apple does not work quickly. It's been nearly eight years since Apple released The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver Of The Screw, And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do, her second album. In most of the time since then, Apple has been in a state of relative…
David Byrne isn't really the kind of guest that Saturday Night Live books anymore. Their musical selection typically trends towards artists that became popular in this millennium, or at least huge legacy artists that are promoting a new album (see Foo Fighters and U2 in 2017).

After spending a good chunk of the '10s focusing on projects besides Gorillaz, Damon Albarn revived his virtual band in 2017 with Humanz. He hasn't slowed down much since.

Gorillaz just launched their new project Song Machine, a series of collaborative singles to be released throughout the year. The first installment, or "episode," was "Momentary Bliss," a song with the politically charged British rapper slowthai and UK punk duo Slaves. And it seems like the second might feature an even bigger name.
Michael Stipe recently released his first two solo singles, "Your Capricious Soul" and "Drive To The Ocean."
