If you’re looking to wean yourself off music for good and Lady Gaga’s jazz album hasn’t quite done the trick, try this for size: Justin Bieber and ‘Surfboard’ hitmaker Cody Simpson have recorded an acoustic duets album.

News of the rumoured collaboration first emerged in June, but talking to the Sydney Daily Telegraph (as quoted here) Simpson finally (FINALLY!) unveiled some more information about the album, which is due in November.

“It is a smack bang duets [album],” he mused.

“Justin [Bieber, obviously] has been a good mate of mine for a while. It’s just us writing.”

Did Justin offer up any reason as to why he’d decided to grace you with his presence on this album, Cody?

“He told me he felt like I’d figured myself out and have grown into what he knows I will be, so he was like, ‘I see you as that guitarist, singer-songwriter you’ve always wanted to be’. I play all the guitars on the album.”

Sounds like a real treat.

Ed Sheeran’s recorded an EDM song. http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/ed-sheerans-recorded-an-edm-song/130489/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/ed-sheerans-recorded-an-edm-song/130489/#comments Tue, 02 Sep 2014 08:34:00 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=130489 Ed

Ed Sheeran’s recorded his “very first EDM song” with Martin Garrix, according to an Instagram post in which he says that very thing.

Posting that picture you can see above – which must be the first time it’s Ed who looks like a star alongside a competition winner – the ‘Old School Love’ hitmaker captioned it with the following words:

“Finished up my very first EDM song with Martin Garrix, brilliant experience, looking forward to you all hearing it.”

He’s also been in the studio with David Guetta so we imagine there’s a bit more of that stuff to come from Sheero.

The song Charli XCX did with the bloke from Vampire Weekend is called ‘Need Your Love’ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/the-song-charli-xcx-did-with-the-bloke-from-vampire-weekend-is-called-need-your-love/130485/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/the-song-charli-xcx-did-with-the-bloke-from-vampire-weekend-is-called-need-your-love/130485/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=130485 charli-xcx-2014-normal

Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend ‘fame’ has tweeted about the song he’s done with Charli XCX for her new album, ‘Sucker’.

As you’re about to see, the song’s called ‘Need Your Love’ and is “so crazy”.

Rostam

The full tracklisting has yet to be ‘unveiled’ but we imagine it will all be out there eventually, at which point this post and posts like it will all seem rather quaint, but that’s the fast-moving world of pop for you.

Marina & The Diamonds has shared a bit of a new song with the world http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/marina-the-diamonds-has-shared-a-bit-of-a-new-song-with-the-world/130469/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/marina-the-diamonds-has-shared-a-bit-of-a-new-song-with-the-world/130469/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=130469 Marina

‘Power & Control’ hitmaker Marina & The Diamonds has posted a bit of a new song onto the internet via the medium of an Instagram video.

Accompanied by the word “”FROOT””, the snippet sounds a lot like this:

The Instagram post was prefaced by a tweet simply saying “1st song”, which either means there’s another snippet of a different song to follow, or this is the new album’s first single and the full thing will be coming just in time for the end of summer.

Either way, THIS IS EXCITING.

Róisín Murphy’s said some things about her new album http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/roisin-murphys-said-some-things-about-her-new-album/130436/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/roisin-murphys-said-some-things-about-her-new-album/130436/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=130436 Roisin Murphy

‘Orally Fixated’ hitmaker Róisín Murphy’s said her new album “goes to places most pop music never does”, which sounds simultaneously exciting and terrifying.

Communicating with the world via the medium of a hand-written note uploaded to Instagram, Murphy said the following:

There was a desire to make an unquestionably refined record. It’s multi layered, electronic and live instrumentation, musically it goes to places most pop music never does. It’s emotionally bare and laced with irony. I definitely didn’t set out to make something unique per-se but eddie’s [Stevens, producer] vision is like nobody else’s on the planet and it really is like nothing you’ve ever heard before. So it’s impossible to describe except to say..it’s heartfelt.

There’s no release date set for all this just yet of course.

Ariel Rechtshaid is producing the new Brandon Flowers solo album http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/ariel-rechtshaid-is-producing-the-new-brandon-flowers-solo-album/130425/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/ariel-rechtshaid-is-producing-the-new-brandon-flowers-solo-album/130425/#comments Thu, 28 Aug 2014 09:08:54 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=130425 Brandon

Brandon Flowers’ new solo album – due in 2015 - is being produced by Ariel Rechtshaid, which sounds promising.

Mind you, 2010′s ‘Flamingo’ was co-produced by Stuart Price and look how that one turned out.

Anyway, having a chat to the NME, the ‘Jilted Lovers & Broken Hearts’ hitmaker had the following to say about it all:

“The record’s not done yet, but I’m excited about it… I’m liking it.”

Well that’s a start.

Touching on his working relationship with the Cass McCombs collaborator, Flowers said:

“He’s taking me out of my comfort zone. Normally I make demos and they’re pretty similar to how the song ends up, but he’ll take a song and be like, ‘I hear this’. It’s incredible – his palette and his range, what he’s able to say. At first we were butting our heads together, but now we’re hitting it off.”

This could go either way, couldn’t it.

One Direction frontman Niall Horan is excited about Q4 http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/one-direction-frontman-niall-horan-is-excited-about-q4/130378/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/one-direction-frontman-niall-horan-is-excited-about-q4/130378/#comments Wed, 27 Aug 2014 09:02:19 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=130378 One-Direction-Little-Things-Niall-Horan

Q4 is the most wonderful time of the year and this fact has not gone unnoticed by Niall Horan.

Obviously Q4 starts at the beginning of October, but if ’1D’ fancy sticking out a single in September we’ll be okay with that as long as the album itself is released during the magical three month period.
