Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have announced plans to release a live DVD in November and a new studio album in the spring.
“People have been urging us to do something like this for a while,” guitarist Robert Levon Been said of the DVD, aptly titled ‘Live’.
Live includes performances from gigs at Dublin, Glasgow and Berlin in 2007 and also features a bonus disc comprising of studio recording footage, videos and acoustic performances.
Robert revealed all to Billboard.com, saying: “It came out a lot better than anyone thought it would. It became a labour of love rather than something to just put out.”
There has been many rumours about The Beatles entire back catalogue being available to download on iTunes. However EMI Senior Executive, Ernesto Schmitt, has denied rumours of this happening.
It is true that EMI and Apple have been in talks to finally allow the site to sell the tracks as downloads, but a final agreement could not be made. “Conversations between Apple and EMI are ongoing and we look forward to the day when we can make music available digitally,” he says in his interview with The Financial Times. “But it’s not tomorrow.”

Glasvegas frontman James Allan phoned his band’s manager Dean Cunning to lay rest to people’s concerns that he had officially gone missing. Allan seemed to be well and spending some time in the big Apple , New York City.
Cunning told the Independent: “James is not missing, he’s in New York,” he said. “He got in touch with me yesterday at about 1.45pm to tell me he was OK because he knew people were worried, but to be honest I’ve been just as much in the dark about this as anybody – the last time I saw James was at the gig in Cardiff. I don’t even know exactly when he went missing.”
