- With guitarist John Frusciante no longer in the fold, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are soldiering on, recording a new album with longtime producer Rick Rubin at the controls. Vampire Weekend, eat your heart out: Peps drummer Chad Smith says the new album has an Afro-pop sound and could be ready by next spring.

- Prince has announced the opening dates of his upcoming "Welcome 2 America" tour. It'll kick-off at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, NJ on Dec. 14, 15 and 17, and will stop at New York's Madison Square Garden on Dec. 19. Will His Purpleness make it 2 Washington before Christmas?

- If there's a movie in 2010 that we'd happily watch with our eyes closed, it's "Tron: Legacy," the forthcoming sci-fi film scored by Daft Punk. There's a new trailer online and it's accompanied by a new Daft Punk track called "Derezzed."
