Morning click: Soundgarden reunites, Vampire Weekend streams new album
- How did the '10s start? With a flashback to the '90s, of course. The minute the new year started, Chris Cornell made the following announcement on his Twitter account: "The 12 year break is over & school is back in session. Sign up now. Knights of the Soundtable ride again! www.soundgardenworld.com." Translation: Soundgarden is the latest band to hop on the reunion train. Expect the grunge originals to headline every festival imaginable in 2010.
- "Contra," the highly-anticipated new album from preppy popsters Vampire Weekend will be released on Jan. 12, but you can stream the entire thing right now on the band's MySpace page. And in just announced concert news, Vampire Weekend will be at D.C.'s Constitution Hall on April 3.
- Remember when we reported happy news about Van Morrison's new baby? Well, turns out it's only happy news if you're a fan of lawsuits. The singer claims that he's not a new father and will be launching legal action against The Daily Mail, which originally reported the story. The news was first released on Morrison's Web site, but he claims that was the work of a hacker.
