Morrissey stopped by Janice Long’s BBC Radio 2 show and debuted three previously unheard tracks. Action is My Middle Name, The Kid’s a Looker and People Are the Same Everywhere are likely to be on his finished tenth studio album which is still without a label. Listen to them at The NJ Underground. 

Metallica have announced via a blog on their official website one of the more unusual musical collaborations in 2011 by confirming they are set to release a full length record with Lou Reed. The project has been in the making since 2009 with more details to follow. 

Kanye West and his ‘people’ have hit back at blogs after many posted new track Mama’s Boyfriend. In a statement they say “The version of the Kanye West recording ‘Mama’s Boy’ that arrived on blog sites earlier this week is entirely bogus and unsanctioned, and violates the artist’s creative intentions” – read it in full at One Thirty BPM and listen to the disputed track. 

Mumford and Sons covered The National’s England for VH1 Unplugged – the result is up at EW.com 

A new track from rapper Nas has emerged on YouTube. The ex-husband of Kelis who currently sits on top of the UK Charts with Calvin Harris, comes back with track Nasty, after his recent collaboration with Damian Marley.  

And in the build up to father’s day, Spinner have come up with some musical presents which bring the old man up to speed with modern music. They suggest for those who like Bob Dylan try Josh Ritter, fans of Beck go for Gorillaz, while those who like Bowie give TV on the Radio a try – many more up on their site.
