Apparently not content with the banjodonk crossover fiasco offered with ‘Wake Me Up’, the follow up to Avicii’s 2013 album ‘True’ will include collaborations with Jon Bon Jovi (!), Serj out of System Of A Down (!!) and Billie Joe Armstrong (!!!), as well as a reggae duet with Wyclef Jean and Matisyahu.

Apparently the Billie Joe Armstrong song is called ’No Pleasing a Woman’, which we can only hope is a raved-up reworking of this epic Chas & Dave classic.

Unsurprisingly, Chris Martin will also make an appearance on the album. ”Chris has been like a brother,” Avicii tells Rolling Stone. “He helps out with my nutritionist.”

One Direction are bringing their new concert film to cinemas http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/one-direction-are-bringing-their-new-concert-film-to-cinemas/129367/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/one-direction-are-bringing-their-new-concert-film-to-cinemas/129367/#comments Tue, 22 Jul 2014 08:37:37 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=129367 One Direction newOne Direction have done some YouTube content to announce that the follow-up to their cinematic opus ‘This Is Us’ will be coming to ‘theatres’ for one weekend only.

“If you haven’t had a chance to come see us at our ‘Where We Are’ stadium tour this year, or you simply just want to relive it again, we’ve got a very, very special announcement for you,” Niall declared in a YouTube video, before Zayn divulged the details.

According to Liam, the film will include the concert plus “an exclusive interview with us talking about what happens on tour”, which basically equates to 75 minutes of ‘concert footage in high definition’ and 15 minutes of interview.

Unfit and improper person Louis kept quiet during the video, perhaps still mulling over his failed bid to make fans stump up the cash to buy that football club.

Anyway the weekend of joy will take place on the October 11 and 12, before the film’s (it’s not really a film is it) inevitable release on DVD and ‘Blu-ray’ on December 1.

That was the trailer thing.

The ‘tease’ arrived in the shape of the black and white clip you can hopefully see below these words.

The full video is coming at some point today actually.

Louis from One Direction won’t be buying that football club after all http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/louis-from-one-direction-wont-be-buying-that-football-club-after-all/129333/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/louis-from-one-direction-wont-be-buying-that-football-club-after-all/129333/#comments Fri, 18 Jul 2014 08:26:27 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=129333 louis-tomlinson1dBackseat smoking documenter Louis Tomlinson has had his takeover bid for Doncaster Rovers football club rejected.

The idea was that Tomlinson would become a co-owner of the club with former chairman John Ryan. But according to Digital Spy the pair’s bid was rejected because they didn’t pass the Football League’s “fit and proper person’s test”, which is quite the criticism when you think about it.

Naturally the One Direction frontman ‘took to Twitter’ to express how “gutted” he was about the whole thing.

He also insinuated that the crowdfunding campaign he’d set up to try and raise the £2m needed might have also been a bit of an issue.

It’s a shame really that rather than trying to get One Direction fans to buy the club he didn’t just put up all the cash from his own huge personal fortune. Oh well!

Jessie Ware’s new album now has a title and some ‘cover art’ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/jessie-wares-new-album-now-has-a-title-and-some-cover-art/129290/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/jessie-wares-new-album-now-has-a-title-and-some-cover-art/129290/#comments Thu, 17 Jul 2014 18:16:17 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=129290 Jessie Ware

Jessie Ware’s new album now has a title and that title is the same as the first single, ‘Tough Love’.

So the album’s called ‘Tough Love’.

It’s news in a way, but not news in another way.

Look a title confirmation’s a title confirmation, let’s not have an argument about it.

Also that classy image above of Jessie waiting for an Amazon delivery is the ‘cover art’.

It was all ‘unveiled’ via the medium of Instagram but there’s no word yet on when it’s out.

Jennifer Lopez has had a water mite named after her http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/jennifer-lopez-has-had-a-water-mite-named-after-her/129256/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/jennifer-lopez-has-had-a-water-mite-named-after-her/129256/#comments Thu, 17 Jul 2014 08:37:52 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=129256 Jennifer LopezJennifer ‘From The Block’ ‘Jenny’ ‘Lo’ Lopez has had a new species of water mite named after her.

Finally!

The little mite was discovered by a group of scientists in a coral reef in Mona Passage, which as you well know is a body of water that separates Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.

According to Billboard, the group were kept entertained by the music of Ms Lopez so decided to name this new species the Litarachna lopezae mite.

“The reason behind the unusual choice of name for the new species is…simple: J.Lo’s songs and videos kept the team in a continuous good mood when writing the manuscript and watching World Cup Soccer 2014,” explained biologist Vladimir Pesic, who works at the University of Montenegro.

We’re sure she’ll be very honoured and perhaps the less we know about how her videos kept Vlad and co in a ‘good mood’ during those long days away from home, the better.

DJ Fresh’s newish, Ellie Goulding-featuring single is now online http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/dj-freshs-newish-ellie-goulding-featuring-single-is-now-online/129258/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/dj-freshs-newish-ellie-goulding-featuring-single-is-now-online/129258/#comments Thu, 17 Jul 2014 08:36:05 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=129258 DJ Fresh sitting on a ghetto blaster

‘Lassitude’ hitmaker DJ Fresh’s new single is a reworked version of ‘Flashlight’ featuring the dulcet tones of collaboration-shy pop recluse Ellie Goulding.

The original appears on Goulding’s ‘Halcyon Days’ but DJ Fresh has been like “I’ll have that thanks very much” and Ellie’s been like “alright then”, the upshot being that this new version is the fourth single to be taken from Fresh’s forthcoming new album, and the 872nd single to be taken from Ellie’s last one.

Why not have a listen to the song below?

Kosten’s previous work includes all three Bat For Lashes albums, some Gabrielle Aplin stuff and a musical dalliance with professional yelpers Everything Everything.

BREAKING: Summer ends on September 21 http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/breaking-summer-ends-on-september-21/129190/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/breaking-summer-ends-on-september-21/129190/#comments Wed, 16 Jul 2014 10:14:58 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=129190 Summer!

Summer will end in September, Popjustice can now confirm. .

Due to the way  seasons work nowadays, the autumnal equinox will take place on September 22, meaning that summer ends on September 21.

That is the timeframe we’re working with here.

It’s always sad when summer has to end, but sometimes exciting things lurk around the corner making it all seem worthwhile somehow.

Apropos of nothing, here’s a tweet from Marina & The Diamonds.

What could it all mean?

UPDATE: What is this all about?

‘Flatline’ hitmaker Dev Hynes announced this morning via Twitter that he’s [REDACTED], but has since deleted his tweets.

‘Taking to Twitter’ he typed out the following words in the following order before pressing send:

He then clarified it all slightly by saying:

The news that Dev is [REDACTED] will surely send shockwaves through the pop sphere and while we feel his reasons for [REDACTED] might be ill-founded, [REDACTED] is his decision and his decision alone.
