Today In Music News: Jeff Tweedy's Son Has A Blog, Kelly Clarkson Has A New Single, Glastonbury Has A Blurry Headliner, The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach Has A Solo Album
Your top national music stories for Tuesday, December 23, 2008:
- Jeff Tweedy's 13- year-old son Spencer has a blog. There, you can read a 13-year-old tell you about the newest technology, politics and music. Because, if 13 year old's know anything, it's politics.
- Kelly Clarkson and her tiny nose ring are releasing their first single to radio on January 19. But, it's got a bitchin' title: "My Life Would Suck Without You." Kell, I feel the exact same way. I promise I'll start returning your calls, promise.
- A reunited Blur will headline this next year's Glastonbury Festival. Say it with me people: Woo-hoo!
- Dan Auerbach, The Black Keys singer/guitarist, has released his new solo single to Stereogum. His solo album, Keep It Hid, comes out February 10. Surprisingly, it sounds nothing like bluesy mountain music--surprising, I say, since he sports rock 'n' roll's most bitchin' mountain main beard. --Lance Lester
