  • According to the Chicago Tribune, Eminem, Muse, and Foo Fighters will headline this year's Lollapalooza, set to take place August 5-7 in the city's Grant Park. Other rumored performers include Best Coast, Girl Talk, Crystal Castles, and Lykke Li. The complete lineup is expected to be announced in April. Eminem headlining would make sense: the rapper's manager told Billboard, "You will be able to see him a few places this year." [Chicago Tribune]

  • Danish rockers the Raveonettes will return April 5 with a new album, Raven in the Grave, and will also kick off a U.S. tour on March 30 in Philadelphia. Download the album's woozy, reverb-soaked lead track "Forget That You're Young" over at Pitchfork.

  • The Kinks will reissue seven of their classic studio albums this year, which will be packed with rarities, outtakes, demos, and more. Among the LPs getting the reissue treatment: 1969's Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire), 1971's Muswell Hillbillies, and 1967's Something Else. [NME]

  • As she finishes up her comeback album Femme Fatale — which is now due for release on March 29 — Britney Spears is cutting tracks with Black Eyed Peas' leader Will.i.am, the pop star announced on Twitter. "You guys are gonna love this one," she wrote.

  • Titus Andronicus will link up with Bright Eyes for a five-date tour this Spring. The Jersey rockers will kick off the trek with Conor Oberst's band April 3 in Milwaukee, MN; the tour wraps on April 9 in Portland, OR. [Brooklyn Vegan]
