Published Oct 02, 2010With another workweek down, here we are again with our Exclaim! news roundup. Here are just some of the stories that made our headlines this week.
First up, a whole lot of Kanye. The week started on a good note, with news of more details about the Watch the Throne EP, a John Legend collaboration and a Cleveland Show appearance, but then things began to go downhill thanks to the leak of "Lost in the World," which comes totting a Bon Iver sample. Of course, Ye wasn't too pleased, leading him to cancel his now anticipated G.O.O.D. Friday release this week. On top of that, a whole lot of speculation is out there regarding the actual release date of Mr. West's new album. Still, nothing seems set in stone so far, so don't go circling any dates just yet.
UPDATE: Well, lookie here: despite all that talk, this week's G.O.O.D. Friday was sealed and delivered after all. Oh Ye...
In other non-Kanye news, we had a double dose of Daft Punk. First, the robotic duo finally gave a release date to their wildly anticipated Tron: Legacy soundtrack and then we found out that they produced the N.E.R.D. track, which actually ain't half bad.
Then there was Daniel Lanois letting us in on his Nuit Blanche instalation, Bad Religion talking their past and present, Radiohead being tapped for the new Ed Norton flick and Sigur Rós finally calling out the copycats.
On top of all that, Soundgarden has gone platinum again, but done so in the perhaps the sneakiest way possible, while Bloc Party's Russell Lissack was attacked by a lion. But don't worry: it was thankfully just a cub.
