  • New York duo Cults are back with a new album Static, out October 15 on Columbia. Get a sneak peek with the video for “High Road” below: [Pitchfork]

  • Bigmouth Strikes Again: Morrissey‘s autobiography has been slated for an October 17th release date in the UK on the Penguin Classics imprint — yes, the division usually reserved for classic literature. “I’ve been through the whole life in many ways, and I just wonder if 660 pages are too much for people to bear,” Morrissey told BBC Radio 4. “And then I sit down and think, well, are six pages too much for people to bear?” [Pitchfork]
  • Earlier this week, we reported that famed weirdos The Flaming Lips were collaborating on an EP with Tame Impala, but last night, the Oklahoma group topped that collaboration by appearing on “Late Show With David Letterman” with Yoko Ono and the Plastic Ono Band. Together, they performed “Cheshire Cat Cry” from Ono’s latest album Take Me To The Land Of Hell. [Stereogum]

  • Anxious to hear new music from L.A. all-girl quartet Warpaint? It’s been over three years since their impressive debut The Fool, and word has it we won’t get a second release ’til next year. But, you can get 30-whopping-seconds of a new track “Love Is To Die” in this Calvin Klein commercial. [Consequence of Sound]
