  • The official cover for Lil Wayne’s Rebirth was revealed yesterday, indicating the oft-delayed rap-rock album might actually stick to its December 15th due date. Disappointingly, the image isn’t new to fans — a similar shot of Weezy, guitar in hand sitting on the same couch, originally appeared as the potential Rebirth cover this summer before the album was delayed. The above image was also used for Wayne’s “Hot Revolver” digital single.

  • In celebration of her upcoming greatest hits compilation, Number Ones, Janet Jackson is inviting fans to participate in three flash mob dances in Los Angeles, this Saturday, November 14th. Jackson herself is rumored to be making an appearance. To get involved with the “Rhythm Nation,” check out the Flash Mob America Twitter.
  • Sting will perform the greatest hits from both the Police and his solo career with the Philadelphia Orchestra at the Academy of Music 153rd Anniversary concert on January 30th, 2010. The concert will help benefit the restoration of the Academy of Music, the National Historic Landmark venue.
  • The Pixies have been added as a headliner at 2010’s Primavera Sound festival, joining another cornerstone band in alternative music, Pavement. Primavera will take place May 27th-29th in Spain.
