New Offer from the Strokes

September 21, 2005 04:19:17 GMT

American rock and roll band The Strokes is growing up. They will on January next year release their as-yet-untitled third album via RCA Records, for which producer David Kahne went for a sound that is "a lot clearer and brighter. The vocals are up. David really taught Julian how to accept his voice and hear it over the top of the mix," said manager Ryan Gentles to Billboard.com earlier this year.

That's a bit about the album that offers bigger and more eclectic sound as well. The album's first single, "Juicebox," reportedly is driven by a heavy riff of Henry Mancini's "Theme From Peter Gunn" and an intense vocal performance from frontman Julian Casablancas, who repeatedly pleads, "Why won't you come over here?" Don't wait any longer just go get it.

Hennes & Mauritz Dropped Moss

September 21, 2005 02:28:21 GMT

Kate Moss, the model, was counting the cost of her party lifestyle Tuesday after Swedish clothing chain Hennes & Mauritz announced that it was dropping her from a forthcoming advertising campaign. Moss actually is planned to help launch a new collection designed by Stella McCartney that will hit stores in 22 countries in November.

Yet, the Europe's largest fashion retailer, which had last week decided to give her a second chance, changed its mind because of its connection to a charity dedicated to the prevention of drug abuse. Company spokeswoman Liv Asarnoj said Tuesday that "after evaluating the situation, we have decided that a campaign with Kate Moss is not consistent with H&M's clear disassociation from drugs." Thus, they will call in another model for the campaign, Asarnoj added.
