Elvis Costello Releases New Release Details Details about the soon-to-be released new Elvis Costello album have surfaced.  Costello's most recent release will be titled National Ransom and is scheduled for a November 2 US release.  National Ransom was recorded in both Nashville and Los Angeles and was produced by legendary producer T-Bone Burnett.  Check out the tracklist and cover art below.  more info 'National Ransom' 'Jimmie Standing In The Rain' 'Stations Of The Cross' 'A Slow Drag With Josephine' 'Five Small Words' 'Church Underground' 'You Hung The Moon' 'Bullets For The New-Born King' 'I Lost You' 'Dr Watson, I Presume' 'One Bell Ringing' 'The Spell That You Cast' 'That's Not The Part Of Him You're Leaving' 'My Lovely Jezebel' 'All These Strangers' Jack Johnson Joins Gulf Oil Spill Relief Effort Chilled-out surfer, singer and environmentalist Jack Johnson is heading "To The Sea" to help out with oil spill relief effort on the Gulf.  Johnson and his "To The Sea" tour has joined the "All At Once" campaign to encourage volunteerism and direct-donation in aiding the Gulf spill relief efforts.  Jack Johnson's charity The Johnson Ohana Charity Foundation has donated money to help the people of the Gulf.  Keep up the fantastic work Jack!  more info My Morning Jacket Recording New Album My Morning Jacket are hard at work recording new material in a church in their hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.  The band has recorded five new tracks and expects the album out mid-2011, likely May or so.  MMJ frontman Jim James talked to Rolling Stone Magazine about the new material and said, “It’s all live, so the vibe is really, really good, really wholesome.  There’s something about it. We’ve done stuff mostly live but then you do some overdubs, some vocals, or whatever. But we’re trying to do everything other than maybe strings live. There’s just something old and dirty about it.”  more info Mumford & Sons Announce North American Fall Tour British folk rockers Mumford & Sons will be hitting the road on a North American tour this fall and have scheduled one Wisconsin date.  The guys from London will be in Milwaukee on October 30 as well as Minneapolis the 29th and Chicago the 31st.  If you are unfamiliar with Mumford, I highly recommend their first album Sigh No More as well as checking them out this October.  For more information and the complete tour schedule, check here. Reese Witherspoon To Play Peggy Lee in New Film Actress Reese Witherspoon won an Oscar for her portrayal of country singer June Carter Cash in the Johnny Cash bio-pic "Walk the Line."  Her success with the musically important role has put her in position to play jazz singer/songwriter/actress Peggy Lee in an upcoming film based on the entertainer's life.  Witherspoon obtained the story from Lee's estate and will act as an executive producer for the film.  Additional details have yet to surface.  more info Arcade Fire Take Over The Daily Show Arcade Fire have been very busy the last couple weeks.  The band released their latest chart topping album The Suburbs this week, headlined last weekend's Lollapalooza and recently joined John Stewart on The Daily Show for a two song performance.  Check out video from their Daily Show performance below.
