Variety broke the big news last night who the headliners for this year’s Coachella would be and now it looks like one of the biggest rumors has been confirmed.

Late last year, rumor had surfaced that OutKast would be reuniting and the place for this reunion to happen would be Coachella; cut to last night when the reports were confirmed.

Also joining OutKast as headliners are the Arcade Fire, coming off a great year and Muse. Other big names heading to California for the two weekend long festival are such big names as Queens of the Stone Age, Skrillex, Beck, Pharrell Williams, Lorde, Calvin Harris, Disclosure, Lana Del Rey, the Replacements, the Knife, and Motörhead.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will take place in Indio, California during two weekends, April 11 through 13 and a repeat on April 18 through 20.

And like the tweet sent out by the official Coachella Twitter, “Share it like a Polaroid picture.”

Beck to Return with New Album in 2014

beck

It’s been quite sometime since Beck has released new music, but now the singer is back.

Yesterday, it was revealed that the musicians would be coming out with a new album titled, Morning Phase. Not only did he revealed that the new album is due out in February 2014, but also that he has signed to Capitol Records. Previously, the singer had been signed to DGC Records.

The new album has been described as a companion album to 2002’s Sea Change and takes the listener “back to the stunning harmonies, song craft and staggering emotional impact of that record, while surging forward with infectious optimism.”

 Many of the same musicians that played on the 2002 album and accompany Beck on tour will be returning for the album including Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Joey Waronker, Smokey Hormel, Roger Joseph Manning Jr., and Jason Falkner.

Modern Phase will be Beck’s first album of entirely new material since Modern Guilt in 2008, but while it might be his first new album, it doesn’t meant hat he hasn’t been keeping busy in the meantime. During the years following Modern Guilt, he has gone to produce albums Thurston Moore and Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, collaborated with artists like Charlotte Gainsbourg and even released a book titled  “Song Reader,” which features musical compositions in sheet-music form.

Talk about keeping busy.
