Arctic Monkeys unveil more tour dates
In support of their excellent fifth LP AM, Arctic Monkeys are heading stateside starting December 3 in Seattle. As if the initial run weren't enough though, the Sheffield mainstays have recently announced an additional slew of dates in January and February of next year. Frontman Alex Turner and crew will trek down south, before hitting up the Eastern shore on a pair of tour dates with the shapeshifting Deerhunter (who will open).

"Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?"
Raekwon remixes "Royals"
Following the Weeknd's and Rick Ross' remixes of Lorde's impossibly infectious "Royals", the Wu-Tang Clan's resident chef has offered his own take on the New Zealand pop singer's track. Coasting atop the booming beat, Raekwon stays in his lane of "stoves and Range Rovers", and kicking back in some of NYC's finest dining experiences. Lorde's wide-eyed desire to be "royals" reflects the street-wizened vet's constant state of mind, to get the respect a near 20 years in the rap game commands. Raekwon's kept the "Cuban links" on, but he's still craving the crown.
In addition to sharing his own take on "Royals", Raekwon has dropped the EPMD-indebted "It's My Thing" which may or may not be appearing on his forthcoming F.I.L.A. (Fly International Luxurious Art) release.
