In other Beyoncé news, the album sold over 828k worldwide in the iTunes Store in just its first three days and also broke the US first week album sales record with over 617k sold.
"At Target we focus on offering our guests a wide assortment of physical CDs, and when a new album is available digitally before it is available physically, it impacts demand and sales projections," Target spokesperson Erica Julkowski tells Billboard.

Clear is an experiment to explore all of the different writing styles in the band. It's rare when you have a band where every member is capable of writing and producing music. With each member controlling their own track, this recording enabled us to go down any path we chose in terms of style and sound.

Virginia singer/songwriter Jim Ivins, after dropping one of my favorite EPs of 2011 (the solo acoustic work of Late Night Drive) and another great collection last year (the full-band effort, Everything We Wanted) is now turning his attention to a new band called Tomorrows. The band's first single, called "Heartbreakers" is straight ahead, riff-heavy rock 'n' roll, and you can hear it right here. The band will release their full-length debut album, called The Code Duello, in 2014.

William Control's new album The Neuromancer has been delayed. The full letter from William explaining why is in the replies.
Part of the problem is I can’t stay in one place long enough to properly listen to the mixes, approve them and have whatever changes made in a timely fashion. It’s quite infuriating and at this rate the record will not come out on time. So I’ve decided to delay the release until I can gather all of the pieces of this little endeavor and get them out at the same time.

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...
