And Here's Some More New Music For You: Click here to get M83's new song "Midnight City."

Björk News: Her album Biophilia will be released September 27th. Pitchfork has the cover.

Tom DeLonge's Journey: One fan's interpretation of how he went from "Cool dude" to "Super douche."

And Speaking Of: DeLonge says Blink-182's hiatus was "really stupid." (Of course, in that same interview he calls the new Blink record "gigantic," but judging by the just released single "Up All Night" "gigantic" just means "like Angels and Airwaves but a little worse, even."

The Mercury Prize Nominees Are...: Adele, Elbow, PJ Harvey, James Blake, Gwilym Simcock, Metronomy, and more.
