The 1975 have let us all know that their next single “Happiness” will hit the airwaves on Wednesday, August 3rd. Frontman Matty Healy posted a picture on Instagram of himself in the studio last week with the caption, “Happiness”. This morning he put up a picture of a poster of the band that reads, “The 1975. Happiness. August 3rd.” The same black and white poster can be seen in real life around London. This single follows “Part of the Band”, which was released earlier this month. The tracks are taken from Being Funny in a Foreign Language, The 1975’s new album, which is set to drop October 14th. Next month the band will also perform their first live shows in two years at the Summer Sonic Festival in Japan. We’ll be counting down until August 3rd and beyond for more The 1975!

The countdown to Halloween has begun and things are getting spooky. Every year people look forward to going to Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights and now we have an extra fun reason to go. The Weeknd is pairing up with the theme park to bring us an experience based on his album After Hours. Tracks from the album will be used to create a horror movie soundtrack that will be played while you try to survive the twisted inner workings of The Weeknd’s mind. According to The New York Post he stated, “I always wanted my own Halloween Horror Nights haunted house as Halloween has always been significant to my music, so this is a total dream come to life.” Watch a trailer for the madness below!

After experiencing the emotional trailer for Wakanda Forever, the upcoming second installment to Black Panther, Marvel has released a bit of a teaser soundtrack. The three released songs include the cover of Bob Marley‘s “No Woman, No Cry” by Nigerian artist Tems, which plays in the trailer. The other two songs are “A Body, A Coffin” by Amaarae and “Soy” by Santa Fe Klan. As more information starts to pour out about the movie, it becomes more apparent that it will be an emotional experience dealing with the loss of Chadwick Boseman. We will have to wait until November 11th to get the entire experience but, for now, check out “No Woman, No Cry” below.
