Bruce Springsteen will release a new single entitled "High Hopes" (a cover previously released on the ultra-rare Blood Brothers EP) on November 25, and there's reason to believe that it's from a new upcoming record, or possibly a sequel to the expansive Tracks collection of Springsteen B-sides and outtakes. Stay tuned.

Maynard James Keenan recently spoke with Rolling Stone about the new Tool album.
Keenan acknowledges the band doesn't necessarily need to release new material to fill an arena – they took their dark, psychedelic show on the road as recently as earlier this year. "But as an artist you don't want to become a greatest hits version of yourself, either," he says. "You want to push the boundaries. You want to figure out how can you challenge yourself to discover something new, discover something different about yourself. What are your limitations? What avenues can you push and expand? That is life. I don't have any interest in coasting yet."

Bob Lefetz's recent article in Variety has claimed that "albums don't work anymore."
If you’ve got a concept album, go ahead and record it. If you’re only interested in selling a little, be my guest. But if you want to penetrate the consciousness of a large group of people and grow the pie, an album isn’t working. Hell, it’s not even working as a revenue model! Labels are no longer in the record business, they’re in the star business. How to maximize the revenue of an individual or band in as many media as possible, in as many ways as possible. Yes, while you were bitching about piracy, your whole business model disappeared.

You put out these albums, and in almost every case, the...
