Liam Gallagher's Beady Eye Recording New Album with TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek

The follow-up to 2011's 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' will be interesting, to say the least

Is Liam Gallagher's new band Beady Eye (who are essentially Oasis without Noel Gallagher) a bit too conservative and derivative for you? Do you enjoy their songs but find them too similar to Oasis (who themselves were often criticized for being too similar to the Beatles)? If so, great news; the band just announced plans to record their new album with TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek. As Stereogum notes, Sitek has worked with everyone from Usher to Swedish electronic pop artist Lykke Li, so you can be sure that, whatever the new album sounds like, it won't be another "Wonderwall."

No word yet on a release date yet, but work on the album started today so hopefully we'll have the new record sometime early next year. Oh, and that sound you hear? That's older brother Noel frantically calling up an even more experimental producer to keep the sibling rivalry alive.

July 22: HyunA Monkeys Around

HyunA, the K-pop star who gained global recognition from co-starring in Psy's "Gangnam Style" video, is teasing her new single "Red" in a very sexy, very odd new photoshoot. The singer poses amid two hunky beefcake wearing humongous, furry monkey heads. HyunA's new music will reportedly showcase a more "mature" side from the singer and while this isn't the look we were necessarily imagining, it does amp up our anticipation.

Get to know more about HyunA in our video feature here.
