1475 gathered all top news about our beloved singers and bands. See what celebs prepared for us this week. 

Arctic Monkey’s new album is just ON MY GOSH

’ new album ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’ is here. It’s their first LP in 5 years (!), after AM released in 2013. The band did not release any singles ahead of the new album, which isn’t common for singers.

You can listen to the full album below.

The first track “Star Treatment” references the Strokes. The other are inspired by sci-fi themes, “I think it started with the idea of science fiction and how the worlds that are often created in it, the idea of space travel or time travel or whatever it might be, is quite often, by my estimations, used to put out there an idea about the world we’re living in,” stated Alex Turner in the interview.

“I think firstly I became interested in that idea, and that’s what the song ‘Science Fiction’ explores a little bit. And then I ended up I suppose making a world of my own after that. And once I’d opened up this sort of box of language related to science fiction, I couldn’t help meself. There’s a reference to a rocket or something or other every 20 seconds. But I’m only human.”

Childish Gambino and “This is America”

Not mentioning the fantastic SNL show Donald Glover hosted last week, he released a music video “This is America” under his stage name “Childish Gambino” and created a lot of discussion about the hidden meaning in every shot of the video.

It’s dedicated to the relevant problem of US and world itself – gun problem, racial prejudice and modern attitude to the major accidents through social media perspective.

Here is the list of all the key things happening in the video, in case you’ve missed something. Also, you can see him talking controversially about the music video in Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Thanks, Nicki! She has taken over YouTube this week and pleased fans with two singles ahead of the new album.

The first one is “Chun-Li”. A few days before, Nicki shared a photo of herself reminiscent of the style of Chun-Li from the game, Street Fighter. This way, she hinted about the upcoming music video.

Katy Perry and Taylor buried the hatchet 



It all started over allegations Katy Perry  ‘stole’ some of Taylor’s back-up dancers for her own tour.  In 2015, Taylor Swift commented on the situation in the interview: “For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, ‘Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'”

The feud continued for 4 years, and finally ended when Katy Perry has sent Taylor Swift an actual olive branch, to stop the argument between the two singers.

It’s extremely sweet, isn’t it?
