Morrissey pulled out of appearing on a US chat show because his fellow guests were set to be Duck Dynasty, an American show that focuses on people who build devices to help hunters fool ducks (yes that is a real programme, and more pertinently who didn't think that would upset Moz?).

Mumford & Sons joked they want to start rapping as they discussed ideas for their next album. "I do feel like we're ready to make the departure," explained Ben Lovett of their third LP. "There's definitely cohesion between the [first] two albums. Now that we've done that, we're not desperate to walk away from that sound, but we're willing to explore what else we could do. These two albums are like brothers. [We could] Do something that's a cousin."
Listen to Karl Hyde from Underworld's first solo single, The Boy With The Jigsaw Puzzle Fingers, taken from album Edgeland (out 22 April).
Iggy And The Stooges will release new album Ready To Die on 30 April. "My motivation in making any record with the group at this point is no longer personal," declare Pop of the LP. "It's just a pig-headed fucking thing I have that a real fucking group, when they're an older group, they also make fucking records. They don't just go and twiddle around on stage to make a bunch of fucking money and then go 'oh, it wouldn't be as good' - this is not the fucking Smashing Pumpkins, y'know, we've got the bald guy and whoever - this is the key. The only thing I really have to say is The Stooges are a real group."
Elton John will release new album, his 30th studio record, The Diving Board in Steptember. "It's my most adult album," he said of the LP. "It's got everything I love about American music - gospel, soul, country."
