The week's music news rounded up.
Muse UNVEIL EIGHTH STUDIO ALBUM
British rock giants Muse have revealed the title of their new, eighth studio album, as well as its release date. Simulation Theory is set to come out on November 9th, and includes recent singles ‘Dig Down’, ‘Thought Contagion’ and ‘Something Human’.
Muse also teased more new music from the album, with a music video to ‘The Dark Side’.
The band's fourth album, 'Olympus Sleeping', will be released in October, a full decade after their last record.
London indie-rock outfit Razorlight have announced details of their first new album in ten years, releasing four new music videos and revealing a UK tour for December 2018.
The band will release their fourth studio album Olympus Sleeping, a full decade after their last record, on October 26th. It will see the legendarily confident singer Johnny Borrell working with guitarist David Ellis and The Pretenders' Martin Chambers on drums.
Razorlight were one of the biggest British guitar acts of the Noughties, scoring a UK number 1 hit with their 2006 single ‘America’ and shifting over 1.5 million copies of their first album Up All Night. However, their fortunes dropped away alarmingly with their third album Slipway Fires in 2008, and Borrell became an industry punchline, infamously selling fewer than 600 copies of his first solo album Borrell 1 in 2013.

Noel Gallagher has listened to new Arctic Monkeys album 'Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino' and admits he doesn't know what to make of the experimental direction.
The 'Holy Mountain' hitmaker has had a chance to check out the Sheffield band's sixth studio album which has split the opinion of fans due to its experimental direction.
Frontman Alex Turner has described the concept behind the record as being the idea of a ''retirement home for rock stars on the moon'', and Noel, 50, has taken the time to give it a listen but admits he didn't enjoy the songs because most lack any classic choruses or melodies.

Johnny Borrell has sold 594 copies of his album. If he got £8.99 a copy, he's made £5340. Yeah!
It's not typical record company procedure, but this is Stiff Records, "where the fun never sets," - apparently.
The label sent out a hilarious press release this week, announcing the first sales figures for Johnny Borrell's - of Razorlight fame - first solo album, Borrell 1. It's actually the first new album that Stiff Records have put out since 2007 - and it sold just 594 copies. Given the Beatles reference in the title, it's probably not too serious.
But anyway, to put that into perspective, that's just less than The Voice winner Leanne Mitchell managed to shift.
