News: Radiohead, Cat Power, Noel Gallagher

Radiohead have finally broken their silence about their new album, anticipated for release in the autumn. Apparently, recording is almost complete. Band member Ed O'Brien posted on their Dead Air Space website this week, saying: "A word from the studio. Yes I know its been a while... but we've been working on this album for a while... BUT WE ARE NEARLY THERE..." That's it. More news as we get it.

Cat Power has won this year's prestigious Shortlist Music Prize awarded by a panel of judges including Franz Ferdinand, Sufjan Stevens, the Flaming Lips, Snow Patrol, The Killers and others. Other artists in competition for the award - widely seen as an equivalent to the UK's respected Mercury Music Prize - included Beirut, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Joanna Newsom, Spank Rock, Tom Waits.

Oasis' Noel Gallagher is contemplating buying his beloved Manchester City football club, reports the Daily Star. Since the club's takeover talks with Thai prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra ran aground he's spotted an opportunity to move in with former M-People star-turned-record executive, Mike Pickering. "I'm thinking of mounting a hostile takeover - me and Mike Pickering," he said. "I reckon we could scrape together about £400,000 in cash and I reckon we would get it for that."
