Rod Stewart to be father for seventh time

Right, here come the all important facts, people. Consisting of Frankie Sandford and Rochelle Wiseman - formerly of S Club 8 formerly S Club Juniors - along with Mollie King, Una Healy and Vanessa White, The Saturdays released their debut single 'If This Is Love' in July 2008. Their debut album 'Chasing Lights' duly followed in October, peaking at number nine in the good old music charts, exactly the same position reached by their second album, 'Wordshaker', which was released exactly a year later. I reckon there's some voodoo at play. This week the girl group release new single 'Missing You', the opening track from their new mini-album 'Headlines', which follows on 16 Aug. Knowing just how many fans The Saturdays have among the CMU faithful, we stalked Vanessa for a whole week until we persuaded her to answer our Same Six Questions.

Q1 How did you start out making music?
When we first got together we were in the studio loads. We had lots and lots of tracks and worked with a writer called Ina Wroldsen, who worked with us for most of the first album. We took it from there really, and just carried on.

Q2 What inspired your latest album?
There are loads of tracks on it that we like, and which we enjoyed writing and recording. We had a bit of a break at the beginning of the year, but wanted to get these songs out in 2010, before we start work on our next full album. So that's where the idea of a mini-album came from.

Q3 What process do you go through in creating a track?
We all sit in a room together, whether it's three of us, or two of us, and we sit there and think about what we want to write about. And just chat and feed off each other really.

Q4 Which artists influence your work?
Really cool pop tracks. Acts like us, straight up pop!

Q5 What would you say to someone experiencing your music for the first time?
I'd say it's fun pop!

Q6 What are your ambitions for your latest album, and for the future?
We want it to do well, obviously. We really like it, so we just hope everyone else does! Obviously, after this, we've got the more singles coming out from the album, plus we've got a book and a jewellery range, so it's all going on! We definitely want to do more albums and keep developing our sound and style into the future.

I don't know why Glasser, aka Cameron Mesirow, has never appeared in this column before. I think we all just assumed she had. Why would we not have covered someone who makes such brilliant music? I guess now's not the time to ponder this, as her debut album is imminent. Entitled 'Ring', it will be released on 27 Sep via the Matador-owned True Panther Sounds.

Glasser's debut EP, 'Apply', was released last year through Young Turks, its title track a sparse concoction of syncopated percussion, sloping synths and echoing vocals, almost tribal in sound. A perfect way to announce her arrival. Her debut single, 'Tremel', released in March, takes a different approach, using the same elements but filling out the gaps with a more dense electronic sound; a marked development in the Glasser sound, and also an exciting first taste of what's to come on the album.

Universal Music Publishing has confirmed that it has asked that Mike Love and Brian Wilson be credited as co-songwriters on the recent Katy Perry hit 'California Gurls', because at the end of it Snoop Dogg raps the immortal line "I really wish you all could be California girls", which comes from the Beach Boys song 'California Girls', of course.

The co-credit requested by Universal isn't just so Love and Wilson can enjoy the warm glow of having officially contributed to one of these new fangled raps, but because the music major wants a royalty cut for use of the line.

Universal owns the classic Beach Boys song via its Rondor Music subsidiary. They said yesterday that "we have established diminutive claim. It is [now] up to the six writers and various publishers of 'California Gurls' to decide whether they honour the claim or not. Using the words or melody in a new song taken from an original work is not appropriate under any circumstances, particularly from one as well-known and iconic as 'California Girls'".

The royalty claim follows reports that both Love and Wilson were fans of Perry's song, and Love insisted yesterday that neither he nor the Beach Boys were involved in any litigation over it. Meanwhile, as "Beach Boys sue Katy Perry" headlines started to fly yesterday afternoon, Perry took to Twitter to insist that, while Universal may be talking sternly about wanting a cut of the action on her recent hit, nobody was actually suing anybody. She tweeted: "Just to be clear, no one is suing anyone; the press just loves to once again fabricate and exaggerate stories to get hits or sell papers".

Jazz drummer and band leader Jack Parnell has died after losing his fight with cancer, he was 87. Having first performed as part of an RAF band in the Second World War, Parnell was part of the legendary fifties British jazz ensemble The Ted Heath Band. He also led his own jazz groups, though it was as a drummer he became best known, winning the Best Drummer category in an annual Melody Maker reader's poll seven years running during the 1950s.

He also won acclaim as a TV theme composer, and subsequently became Musical Director for ITV company ATV, and as such led the bands on various television shows of the era, including 'Sunday Night At The London Palladium', 'The Benny Hill Show' and 'The Muppet Show'.

In the seventies he formed the Best Of British Jazz outfit who performed and recorded together on and off for much of the next two decades.

He is survived by his wife and five children, among them drummer Ric Parnell, who, despite having drummed with various bands, is probably best known for playing drummer Mick Shrimpton in 'This Is Spinal Tap'.

Grammy winning producer and songwriter RedOne, who has worked with such stars as Michael Jackson, Sean Kingston, Enrique Iglesias and Akon, and is best known of late for producing Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance', has done a deal with Universal Music which will see him running his own imprint label with the major.

The label, called 2101, will sit under Universal Music International, with RedOne signing and producing new talent. First on the roster is singer-songwriter Mohombi, who has been jetting between studios in LA and Stockholm to write and record his debut album.

Announcing his new deal with Universal, RedOne told CMU: "I am so privileged to be in business with the Universal family in this new venture. We already have had so much success together, I know that this is the best home for my music and for my artists. Lucian [Grainge] and I share a common vision for creating sounds and platforms for new artists, not only writing hit songs, but building brands. We are incredibly fortunate to be launching with an artist like Mohombi, who has so much potential. He is a powerhouse talent ... writing, singing, performing, dancing... a true entertainer. Mohombi lifts my spirits and I believe he will elevate the world with his music".

The first single from Mohombi's album, entitled 'Bumpy Ride', will be release on 4 Oct, distributed through Universal/Island in the UK.

Plan B has said that his next album, like 'The Defamation Of Strickland Banks', which was released in April, will see him take a radical change in musical direction. Speaking to The Daily Star, he explained that he is currently playing the role of a soul singer called Strickland Banks and will retire the character when he finishes touring the album.

He said: "[Strickland Banks] is a soul singer who's found success very quickly and it's gone to his head. I'm just telling a story, a scene from my career and it won't be around for ever. He's completely disconnected, a fictional creation, fictional people, no relation to my life. Now the music is so successful it's getting harder. I'm like a film director. On the album cover it says 'Plan B presents... The Defamation Of Strickland Banks'. It's me portraying this character Strickland Banks for this one project, this one album".

As for where he'll go next, the musician said: "It could be dubstep or reggae. We almost released a folk song. That's the thing about me. If I feel like I've created a great piece of music then it doesn't matter what genre it is, I'll put my name to it. Just expect me to always come from somewhere outside the box".

Of course, when it comes to it, there will be a lot of people telling him not to change direction when he is clearly onto a good thing. It remains to be seen if Plan B can actually get away with a second change of direction.

The Hendrix Estate and Legacy Recordings have announced the second wave of Jimi Hendrix reissues this year. Fans can look forward to 'Jimi Hendrix Experience: BBC Sessions', 'Jimi Hendrix: Blues', 'Live At Woodstock', and the 'Merry Christmas And A Happy New Year' EP in October, plus a brand new four-disc compilation of demos, alternate takes and previously unreleased recordings called 'West Coast Seattle Boy'.

The 'Blues' and 'BBC Sessions' albums will each come with extra DVD stuff that you'll enjoy owning but probably never watch, and the Christmas EP, which features a medley of 'Little Drummer Boy', 'Silent Night' and 'Auld Lang Syne' plus Hendrix's own 'Three Little Bears', will be released as a seven-inch picture disc as well as on CD.

Previous reissues have included Hendrix studio albums 'Are You Experienced?', 'Axis: Bold As Love' and 'Electric Ladyland', plus various compilations of live recordings and demos.

Hint has announced that he will release a new EP, 'Beryllium', on 30 Aug via Tru Thoughts, which is all fun. But not as much fun as the competition that coincides with it. No, it's not another one of those tedious remix competitions. Instead, Hint is looking for some folks to provide vocals for a couple of new tracks.

Hint has uploaded two basic instrumental tracks, and their individual parts, for you to sing over. Once the competition closes on 27 Sep, Hint and Tru Thoughts A&R guy Robert Luis with select the best, bringing in Quantic, Alice Russell, The Bamboos and Belleruche to help them pick the overall winner from a final ten. The victor will then have their completed track released on Tru Thoughts later this year.

Jay-Z will publish the autobiography which he previously blocked in November through Spiegel & Grau. It will be called 'Decoded'.

As previously reported, the book was written with journalist Dream Hampton four years ago, and combines a first person memoir with interviews with friends and family, documenting Jay-Z's early life up to the point at which he made his name as a rapper. However, once it was complete the rap man decided the book revealed too much about his childhood and his father, who left home when Jay-Z was eleven years old.

The rapper told Rolling Stone earlier this year: "It's too much. For the book, I was interviewed, people close to me were interviewed, so I was learning a lot of things I didn't know as a child. It's not anything I haven't said in the past, in songs. It's just more detailed... You can say exactly how everything went".

He added: "It was still wrong that [my father] left, but he did stick around at a time when it wasn't cool or popular. He married my mom at a time when guys were just leaving, and you'd never even meet your dad. So [writing the book] made me ease up a little bit in how I felt about him".

It's not clear if changes have been made to the book to placate the rapper, or if he's simply had a change of heart. I guess we'll find out once it's out.

SINGLE REVIEW: The Count & Sinden feat Mystery Jets - After Dark (Domino)
'After Dark' is, as all great pop songs are, about boys, girls, dancing, tortured hearts and after hours. The track is a collaboration between indie purveyors of oddness, Mystery Jets, and UK club duo The Count (aka Hervé) & Sinden. The pair of bongo-hedonists' sorcery has worked wonders: the alluring vocals of William Rees of Mystery Jets are set against an Afrobeat backdrop that transforms the subject of late night telephone calls into something truly magical.

William claims: "Whether you love it or hate it, this beat will be tearing the cubicle out of the loo before you've managed to get your trousers down. BE AFRAID!" We're not sure about that (it sounds illegal, no?) but behind these lavatorial musings he may well have a point. There's no fighting the loopily catchy beats of this track: its vibrant, twinkling, tempo-shifting glory is a serotonin shot to the jugular.

The summer is well and truly here - and you could do a helluva lot worse than making this your soundtrack to it. EG

Assuming you accept that music videos are basically just elaborate commercials for the songs that soundtrack them, then why not double up and use the vid to flog a car too?

Well, that is what Faithless will do with their next pop promo as part of the dance combo's previously reported marketing partnership with Fiat. The video for next Faithless single 'Feelin Good' will also be a three minute car marketing feast, and Fiat have bought an entire ad break on Channel 4 in which to premiere it. At least four people - idiots if you like - are calling the pop-promo-meets-commercial a 'prommercial'.

The video will premiere in a commercial break spot during next Sunday's 'Big Brother'. It's not clear if the full video will then be shown again at a time when people might be watching, though a thirty second edit will be included in normal ad breaks, and presumably the whole thing will also be available online somewhere. Possibly on the Facebook group for Punto Evo fans.

Commenting on the ad/promo combo in a way likely to cause you to be a little bit sick in your mouth, Fiat marketing lady Elena Bernardelli told reporters: "We're thrilled to be launching the first ever music/brand 'prommercial'. No other car brand has co-created a music video where the story has been written with the car and band as equal partners, both as important as each other to the plot. The video is really fun and uplifting and we hope it genuinely does leave people 'feelin good'".

Meanwhile Faithless popped out of their luxury apartment in Sell Out Alley to say this: "We're always looking at new ways to get our music to different audiences and exploring new ideas. The idea of showing our latest video on TV during an ad break is a first for us or any other band".

Music publicity company Anorak has announced a new appointment who will join their digital marketing team next month. Sarah Richardson joins the agency from the Nettwerk Music Group's UK label where she worked on digital marketing and promotions. Prior to that she worked at Sony Music, latterly in Columbia Records' digital marketing team.

Anorak co-founder Emily Cooper told CMU: "Sarah brings in a whole new dimension to Anorak's Digital team with a wealth of experience in creative and digital marketing. We pride ourselves in being able to offer fully integrated PR campaigns across all media platforms with some of the most experienced people in the industry, to our clients".

London-based law firm Bolt Burdon are launching a new media and entertainment team, which will be headed up by Chris Phillips and Michael Shepherd.

Phillips, previously of Collins Long Solicitors, has years of experience working with both bands and labels, and is co-author of the Music Business Agreements book. Shepherd, formerly of Jens Hills Solicitors LLP, represented former Procol Harum member Matthew Fisher in his ultimately successful claim for a cut of the 'A Whiter Shade of Pale' royalties.

The two legal men, who both studied for their New York bar exams at the same time, told CMU that they were "thrilled to be working together again and are looking forward to building their brand new team at Bolt Burdon Solicitors".

It's pretty common these days for bands to give away a free track to anyone who signs up to their email list, though few have gone so far as to pay their fans for an email addresses. But that's what a self-releasing band with the rather amusing (for Private Eye readers, anyway) name of The Reclusive Barclay Brothers are doing.

They will give 100 fans who sign up to their mailing list £27 in cash. They are calling the promotion 'fan payola', and chose £27 because it is one millionth of the amount that the US major labels had to pay out following the 2004 crack down on payola in the American radio promotions sector (that's the band's maths by the way, we've not checked their workings).

As a self-releasing band, shelling out £2700 on a publicity stunt is presumably quite a big deal. So I'm assuming the band's members would appreciate it if you'd check out their new website - www.newlowformusic.com - where you'll find a video explaining the promotion, some plugs for their music and the all important cash-for-your-email input box.

The Apple executive in charge of 'iPhone engineering', one Mark Papermaster, has left the IT giant. An Apple spokesman confirmed Papermaster's departure but didn't provide an explanation for why he is leaving. That's led to speculation that the exec has been officially blamed for all the hassle that surrounded the launch of the iPhone 4, and its dodgy antenna.

Blues & Soul Magazine will be back as a print title as of this weekend. The four decade old magazine has published exclusively online for three years now, but is coming back in print for a special edition to coincide with the previously reported Vintage at Goodwood festival taking place this weekend. Initially planned as a one-off, the special edition has motivated the relaunch of a more regular B&S mag.

The special print edition came about after fashion type Wayne Hemingway, who is behind the Vintage event, invited the B&S team to cover the festival. Editor Lee Tyler tells CMU: "We were invited by Wayne because he sees us as being pivotal within the music that we have covered through the years, and in particular soul music. The premise of Vintage is to celebrate British cool, so we thought it would be cool to bring out a printed edition which commemorates those golden years - but also glimpses into music's future by way of our 'one's to watch section'; future vintage if you like".

He continues: "This was how the idea of relaunching the printed version came about. We had no intention of going back to print before this, because we are going from strength to strength online. But given the buzz and pre-orders the special edition has created, we have decided to make a regular printed magazine again. How regular we won't know 'til after Vintage, as we will be monitoring how well it sells at the festival and at newsstands".

The special issue, available at Vintage this weekend and then in newsagents, will include interviews with Stevie Wonder, Martha Reeves, Temptations, The Four Tops, Incognito and Noel McKoy.

Father of six Rod Stewart is set to be a dad again, after it was confirmed his wife Penny Lancaster is pregnant. And this despite Rod now being 409 years old.

A spokesmen for the couple said yesterday: "Penny and Rod were lucky enough to be celebrating more than just their third wedding anniversary in June, as the news came that Penny was pregnant with their second child. We were thrilled and delighted to be able to tell Alastair that he was going to be the big brother to a little baby, expected just before mummy's 40th birthday".

After this one, Mick Hucknall will reportedly father all of Rod's future children.
