    LISTEN: New Jimmy Eat World Single

    Arizona rockers Jimmy Eat World are gearing up to release their seventh studio album, Invented, on September 28, and you can listen to the rousing lead single "My Best Theory" on their website now! The song has the raw energy of their 1999 classic Clarity, which the band played in its entirety on a tour last year, tempered by the radio-friendly sheen of their 2001 breakthrough, Bleed American. Not surprisingly, the band tracked the new 12-song album in their hometown of Tempe, Arizona, with Clarity/Bleed American producer Mark Trombino. The boys will hit the road this fall for a U.S. tour, kicking off September 21 in Atlanta, GA. See the full list of dates here. What do you think of the new single?

    Lily Allen Is Pregnant

    Lily Allen has confirmed her pregnancy with boyfriend Sam Cooper, The Sun reports. As an affirmation, the 25-year-old British pop singer tweeted a picture of herself, smiling, holding Thursday's issue of the tabloid: "Not quite front page worthy," she captioned the picture, "but anyways........... surreal." Allen's been keen on starting a family for some time, particularly in the wake of her 2008 miscarriage with then-beau Ed Simons of the Chemical Brothers. Last year, in a SPIN cover story, she said she simply wanted to "find someone to fall in love with, have another go at having children, and move somewhere else." "I'm still that little girl who wants to be loved and wants the attention of my mum and dad," she continued.

    Eminem Remembers '8 Mile' Co-Star Brittany Murphy

    Eminem dished about his prescription drug addiction in SPIN's August cover story, and now the Detroit rapper has opened up about the loss of his 8 Mile co-star Brittany Murphy, who died last December of drug-related cardiac arrest at age 32.

It's crazy when you see things not just with her but just all these things that are happening in Hollywood with people in music, with people in acting." "Famous people. Famous people are overdosing at alarming rates and -- that almost sounded like a commercial. Wow." He continued: "But they are. And it's one of those things, man, where you're famous, doctors will kiss your ass because they love the celebrity. 'Oh, I can call up Eminem and get him on the phone right now.

    EXCLUSIVE: Unreleased Queens of Stone Age Track

    Desert rock juggernauts Queens of the Stone Age are releasing a deluxe edition of their classic album Rated R on August 3, featuring six b-sides and a recording of their Reading Festival set in 2000. Listen to the previously-unreleased-in-the-U.S. track, "Ode to Clarissa," below! "Clarissa" is classic Queens of the Stone Age -- badass, supercharged rock'n'roll. A thunderous drum intro gives way to a piercing guitar riff. QOTSA completists might already be familiar with "Ode to Clarissa": It appeared as the 12th track on the Japanese pressing of Rated R; on a limited-edition vinyl version of the album; and as the b-side on the U.K. single for "The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret," the album's best-known tune. A live version of the "Clarissa," recorded at the Reading Festival, is included on the new Rated R special edition, as well. Rated R landed at No.

    WATCH: Of Montreal Rock 'Late Night' with Solange

    Of Montreal visited Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Thursday dressed as fashionable ghouls in white face paint and suits and gowns to debut "Sex Karma," a new song from their September 18 release False Priest -- and they brought along a little help: Solange Knowles, aka Beyonce's younger sister. Watch below. Frontman Kevin Barnes and Knowles traded verses on the funky, Motown-esque number with tongue-in-cheek lyrics about sex: "I know that you want to scream / Honey, touch my everything / I look like a playground to you," Knowles sang. "Close your eyes and count to three / I'll kiss you where I shouldn't be," Barnes replied as Knowles gyrated down her microphone stand. A group of mimes (um... drinking milk?) joined the band on stage, too. Steamy... and weird! While the song will appear on False Priest, Barnes told SPIN that it was originally intended as a solo track for Knowles.
