What's New(s)?

Jack White announces tour

The always restless Jack White has a new album entitled Lazaretto out June 10, and to support his sophomore solo-release through Third Man Records he'll be heading out on the road this summer. After a tune-up gig in Nashville at Third Man on April 19, White will begin the tour proper on May 29 in Tulsa, OK. Kelley Stoltz and Benjamin Booker will join White, who will trek through Europe and a sizable portion of the Midwest before the summer is up.

Coldplay releases black-and-white video for "Magic"

"Stark" isn't one of the words that tends to leap out at me when I hear a Coldplay song or see one of their videos. But that's precisely the word that comes to mind when I see their new video for "Magic", the first offering from their upcoming Ghost Stories LP. Directed by Jonas Åkerlund and starring Ziyi Zhang (of The Grandmaster and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon fame) as a magician, the entirely black-and-white clip sees lead-singer Chris Martin split time as her overbearing husband and lovestruck assistant. Despite the change in color-schemes, the video still contains plenty of the earnestness people have come to love from Coldplay.

Ghost Stories is out on May 19 via Parlophone/Atlantic.
