Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced their return with album I’m With You dropping on August 30, and single The Adventures of Raindance Maggie on offer from July 18. This confirmed what Chad Smith told the Rock It Out blog a few weeks ago – and unsurprisingly they have the confirmed information.  

Domino Records have launched their own radio station for the week, and have some pretty interesting presenters. In collaboration with the Guardian, the likes of Alex Kapranos (Franz Ferdinand), Matt Helders (Arctic Monkeys) and Bobby Gillespie will host shows. Take a listen

The Audio Perv has the whole of Coldplay’s set from Germany’s Rock am Ring festival streaming. The band, who released new track Every Tear is a Waterfall on Friday debuted a number of new tracks as well as some old favourites. 

Jamie xx’s debut solo EP is now up on Soundcloud. Released on Glaswegian label Numbers, the tracks Far Nearer (debuted on his 6 Mix) and Beat For are creating quiet a stir.

Foo Fighters have another typically sarcastic and satirical video for track Walk. Dressing up and generally taking the mickey, check it out on YouTube.

Meanwhile, Bjork has been driving her car and singing a-long to new track Crystalline. Not to be confused with The xx, the teaser is up at Vimeo.

After being leaked earlier in the year and receiving criticism for being misogynistic and offensive, Kanye West officially released the video for single Monster on TwitVid. It begins with text saying “it is an art piece, and shall be taken at such.” Even so, don’t watch if you are easily offended by both imagery and language.

Another track from the Buddy Holly Tribute album has emerged on YouTube – this time My Morning Jacket’s take on True Love Ways. Rave On: Buddy Holly is released on June 28 and features other covers from Paul McCartney, Julian Casablancas, Florence and the Machine amongst others.

Joss Stone has uploaded a video onto YouTube giving insight into recording new album LP1 set for release in the UK on August 1.
