Sign of the Apocalypse #4

Mariah challenges Madonna by delaying album AGAIN

According to Def Jam, Mariah's new album, which was already delayed once because of the lukewarm reception of lead single 'Obsessed,' has been pushed back again. Mariah's also pulled out of a number of promotional appearances. This whole 'Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel' mess is getting worse by the day. Officially the delay is to allow Mariah to record entirely new tracks for the set, but it sounds more like Def Jam is just treading water until they figure out how to put the promo plane back on course. The conspiracy theorists among us will note that this is the SAME DAY AS MADONNA'S greatest hits package and clearly there is some sort of DIVA SMACKDOWN afoot. If you ask ScopiSat, both ladies could sure use the press...The new release date is Sept 29 and I'm sure we'll all be holding our breath to see who comes out on top.

Let's all take a moment to remember Lolly

Here is 'Viva La Radio' by Lolly for some reason.

We heard a while back she has something new coming out. Let's hope that it's soon because it will be AMAZING.

Update: Lolly is 32 now. This video came out in 1999. It is now 2009. That means Lolly was 22 in this video. TWENTY TWO.

Jack Penate has a new video out

Shot on a Super 8 camera (oo arty!) and in Jordan (oo global!), the video for Jack Penate's new single 'Pull My Heart Away' has made its way to the interwebs. The song is quite good in that way that you always know what you're getting from someone like Jack Penate and it's never going to be exactly BAD, is it, but it's worth a listen and as a bonus you get to see Jack wearing the head of an animal.

'Pull My Heart Away' is out on XL Recordings on Aug. 24

Annie's new album will finally come out

As everyone else mentioned yesterday, Annie's album that was originally slated to come out in 2008 will come out on October 19 2009 in the UK and November 17 in the US on Smalltown Supersound Records. Only a year late then. There is a general uproar about the album not including tracks like Anthonio and I Know Your Girlfriend Hates Me, but ScopiSat is pretty pleased we will be getting a fresh batch and hopefully a fresh start. The whole 'Annie World Domination' thing hasn't exactly gone to plan up til now has it...
Here is a song called 'Loco' that did make the cut, so it's probably a good guide to what we'll be getting:

Well done.

How is Basshunter still allowed to make music?

ScopiSat will give a large sum of money to anyone who can answer that question. In this video Basshunter and his model girlfriend run around and do couply things until at the end there is a HUGE TWIST and then the video ends.

The song is out on Hard2Beat on Sept 21 so you know when to avoid clicking on any sort of download link JUST IN CASE some interweb tubes get crossed somewhere and instead of that nice new Little Boots remix you've been waiting for you receive THIS and then you cry.
