News: Verve, Prince, 50 Cent, Interpol, Hell Razah

Although Prince has threatened imminent retirement the man just can’t seem to stop working. Currently two weeks into his seven-week residency at LA’s Roosevelt Hotel -which precedes the release of new album ‘Planet Earth’ on July 24th and his string of London dates at the O2 Arena in August – the artist has announced the launch of a new perfume which will be available from July 7th. The scent, entitled 3121 will only be available from this here website at the witty tariff of $31.21.

The Verve have announced their reunion after eight years apart. Richard Ashcroft, Nick McCabe, Simon Jones and Pete Salisbury have reconvened minus Simon Tong who is currently enjoying success with The Good, the Bad and the Queen. Work on a new album has already started and is due to be completed in autumn before they embark on a winter tour. More details.

If last year’s ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’’ was anything to go by Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson better sharpen up those acting skills if he wants to go toe to toe with legends De Niro and Pacino. The NY rapper is in final negotiations to star alongside the acting veterans who play detectives tracking a serial killer in ‘Righteous Kill’. Fiddy will play a drug dealer aiding the detectives in their investigation.

Interpol’s fanbase continues to expand at an alarming rate with the announcement of yet another UK show. The NY rockers will play London’s Astoria on July 2nd to coincide with the release of new single ‘The Heinrich Maneuver’. That’s this coming Monday so you better be quick to get a ticket. The band will then return to the UK in August for a short tour including two nights at London’s 8250-capacity Alexandra palace. More info.

Finally, here’s a history lesson of sorts courtesy of Hell Razah feat. Timbo King, Tragedy Khadafi and RA the Rugged Man with new track ‘Renaissance’. Make sure you wait until the end to hear RA absolutely smash it.
