Coldplay spill details on new album…

Colyplay has announced that their new album called X&Y will be hitting stores on June 7th. X&Y has been a long process for Coldplay; the band decided to rewrite a lot of this material after being concerned about song quality. Chris Martin told BBC: “We realized that we didn’t really have the right songs and some of them were starting to sound better because we were playing them than they did on record, so we thought we better go back and record them again.”

Coldplay will be announcing touring dates across North America in the coming weeks.

Since 1997 there has been any theories about the death of rap star Notorious B.I.G., but now those theories have been laid to rest. The FBI has officially closed the investigation into B.I.G.’s death. The case was closed after the prosecutors felt they has no evidence for prosecution. Various theories have been unearthed, including Notorious’ death was due to a feud with Tupac Shakur, who was murdered the year before B.I.G. in Las Vegas.
