Carly Rae Jepsen spoke with Cosmopolitan about the upcoming Grease: Live, and during the interview they talked about a follow-up album to Emotion.
What kind of stuff is inspiring you as you work on new material?
"I'm scared to say out loud and have it in print because I know how much my mind changes through the process. Even where I started with Emotion [versus] where I ended up were completely different places, so right now I can tell you what I'm experimenting with but there's no guarantee that that's what will be on the album. I've been really into this subtle sort of disco. I'm enjoying the combination of ABBA meets Feist. I know that sounds insane, but trust me!"

Deryck Whibley spoke with Fuse about his recovery process, touring, record labels, and the upcoming album.
It seems like a really democratic move. Is there a particular freedom in doing that? Do you get to call all the shots?
"We always did. The difference is that you don't have people to argue with as much. On our last record [2011's Screaming Bloody Murder], being on a major label in a time where most music is just pop when I want to make a rock record, you have people to argue with about why they think you should be making a pop record, ruining your career, trying to convince you of that. I have to say, 'No, wrong, and I'm going to do this anyway.' And they say, 'Fine, you can do...

Amazon is reportedly in the early stages of building a "Spotify-killer."
The New York Post reports that Amazon executives have kicked off licensing talks with the music industry for a Spotify-like offering that would tentatively cost $9.99 per month. The Post makes clear that Amazon's plan is still "in the early stage." That said, Amazon is kicking around a very interesting idea. The company is reportedly thinking of bundling its Echo smart speaker and the rumored music service together. Buy the speaker, and you'll pay a lower monthly subscription fee between $3 and $4.

Bombay Bicycle Club have announced that they are going on hiatus.
Right now we aren’t working on any new music and don’t have plans to do so any time soon. We aren’t breaking up, but after ten years of doing this—and it being the only thing we’ve known since the age of 16—we thought it was time for all of us to try something else.

Rihanna's ANTI is apparently RIAA-certified platinum, benefitting from the same rule change that gave Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail platinum status in 2013. Billboard still won't count those sales towards it's charts for the week, unless they also change their rules.
