Dylan's new album, McCartney's new record!

Bob Dylan will release his new studio album Together Through Life on April 28th. Dylan posted a new interview on his official website bobdylan.com, and explained that the legendary Chess and Sun Records 1950s singles shaped the sound of the new collection, saying, "I like the mood of those records -- the intensity. The sound is uncluttered. There's power and suspense. The whole vibration feels like it could be coming from inside your mind. It's alive. It's right there. 'Kind of sticks in your head like a toothache.'"

Although the album's final setlist has yet to be announced, last month Dylan previewed seven tracks to Columbia label heads in New York and London. Billboard reported that the tracks previewed were "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'," "Life Is Hard," "My Wife's Hometown," "Forgetful Heart," "Shake Shake Mama," "I Feel A Change Coming On," and "It's All Good."


Paul McCartney has set a new world record for his upcoming gig at Las Vegas' Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The former Beatle sold out all 4,000 seats for the show in only seven seconds. The Macca Report posted that tickets for the April 19th show at the new 4,000-set New Joint venue sold at a rate of about 600 seats per second.

The Hollywood Reporter posted that the new John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy will be distributed by The Weinstein Co., who has acquired the U.S., Latin American, and German distribution rights to the film.

Nowhere Boy focuses on Lennon's pre-teen family life, with Kristin Scott Thomas portraying Lennon's maternal aunt and guardian Mimi Smith. Nowhere Boy is due out next year.
