Posted in music | tour dates on January 13, 2010


Plenty of veterans are returning to the recording studios. We can look forward to new music [in 2010] from the reclusive Sade (it's hard to believe that the ice queen of Brit soul has been a star for three decades now), the ancient genius of Leonard Cohen, a rock opera from Pete Townshend, a further collaboration between Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, and new music from Plant's Led Zeppelin colleague, Jimmy Page. ...

...Plenty of other returning stars get the new decade off on a good foot. We can look forward to the return of Hot Chip, Goldfrapp, Nick Cave's rocking side-project Grinderman, Glasvegas, Mark Ronson (following up Versions with his first set of originals), Amy Winehouse (if she can keep it together in the studio), Babyshambles (if Pete Doherty can stay out of jail), MIA (can the experimental UK rapper replicate her US success at home?), LCD Soundsystem, MGMT, Vampire Weekend, the Strokes, Eminem and Kanye West. [Telegraph]

Hot Chip's new album 'One Life Stand' is out February 9th, but they won't support the record in the United States until April. That tour includes an April 22nd show at Terminal 5 with The xx which is sold out.... so they added another one the very next day. Tickets for the April 23rd show (which currently has no opener listed) go on AmEx presale at 11am.

The xx also have a show coming up at Webster Hall as part of their tour with jj.

Sade's new album 'Soldier of Love' is also out February 9th. Her new video for the song of the same name is below...

not a big fan of hers but that song is very good
hope Hot CHip's second show also includes XX as openers, or someone even better

I think Sade is a band, not a woman. Should be referred to as "their new video", etc. Sade Adu is the lead singer, but I'm pretty sure they've always considered themselves a band and that's the band name. Like Van Halen.
