The official artwork and tracklisting for Jonghyun’s final album have been unveiled ahead of its release tomorrow.

It was announced last week that the late SHINee member’s final solo album would be released posthumously, with all proceeds going to Jonghyun’s mother to help fund a foundation for those struggling with depression.

Ahead of Poet | Artist’s digital release tomorrow, the artwork for the album has been revealed.

The simple cover features a picture of Jonghyun wearing an orange jumper and set against a matching background, with pink lighting over his face.

This image is laid on a white background, while underneath the picture, text reads: ‘We can be together in this space, while being on the other side of the Earth. We can be together at any time, not just at 12 o’clock. Physical matters certainly remained indifferent in our space.

‘I only hope for this to never cease. I hope this space that belongs to you and me, be the site for anyone to rest in tranquility. I hope for our memories to rise as reminiscences and embrace you like no other.

‘This is dedicated to those who have created our space together. Thank you.’

As well as the artwork, the 11 song tracklisting has been released.

Somehow it has come to pass that Shakira hasn’t performed in the UK in eight years.

Thankfully, this wrong is about to be righted as the singer has decided to bring her El Dorado world tour to London in June to make sure she doesn’t hit the 10 year mark without a UK gig.

The 40-year-old will be taking to the O2 stage on 11 June ready to perform her biggest hits as well as her new music.

‘I can’t wait to be onstage in London again singing along with all of you, all of your favourites and mine.

‘It’s going to be fun! The road to El Dorado starts now!’

The last time she performed in the UK was in 2010 on Glastonbury’s Pyramid stage.

El Dorado was released last May and marks Shakira’s 11th studio album, which has also received a Grammy nod.

Tickets to this special gig will go on sale Friday 26 January at 9am.

The Kinks and Argent bassist Jim Rodford has died aged 76.

His cousin and longtime bandmate Rod Argent confirmed his death on The Zombies’ official Facebook page, saying the musician had taken a fall on the stairs and passed away on Saturday.

Taking to Facebook, Rod wrote: ‘It is with deep sadness that I learned this morning that my dear cousin and lifelong friend, Jim Rodford, died this morning after a fall on the stairs. More details are not yet known about the exact cause of death.

‘Jim was not only a magnificent bass player, but also from the first inextricably bound to the story of The Zombies. An enormous enabler for us.’

He continued: ‘To the end, Jim’s life was dedicated to music. He was unfailingly committed to local music – an ever present member of the local scene in St. Albans, where he had spent his whole life.’

It is with deep sadness that we have learned that Jim Rodford passed away – he toured and recorded with the Kinks for many years and will be greatly missed. He was much loved by all of us #JimRodfordhttps://t.co/LmWFGd9ZRV

The Kinks also paid tribute to Rodford, who acted as their bass player following John Dalton’s exit from the band in 1978, writing: ‘It is with deep sadness that we have learned that Jim Rodford passed away.

‘He toured and recorded with the Kinks for many years and will be greatly missed. He was much loved by all of us.’

Why is Jessie J a contestant on a Chinese talent show?

Jessie J is no stranger to talent shows as she featured on the ITV hit programme The Voice UK as a judge for the first two series.

She’s clearly made her mark on the music scene, with her tracks Price Tag and Domino winning her numerous awards including BRITs and MOBOs.

So it feels slightly strange to watch the tables turn as the established singer tries to prove herself as a contestant on the Chinese talent show, Singer.

The show is a re-branded version of I Am a Singer and allows pop stars to compete with each other – kind of like the X Factor, except the contestants are already famous.

In the last episode Jessie J went up against Taiwanese singers Sam Lee and Angela Chang, and Chinese rocker Wang Feng on the Hunan TV programme.

This time round she had to chose a song to sing that wasn’t her own (weird, we know), and of course she went for the classic Whitney Houston song that everyone sings when they enter these talent shows: I Have Nothing.

Shock horror.

Anyway, before she took to the stage she got to explain why she chose this particular song.

Louise Redknapp has been busy diving head first back into the pop world alongside her dancing and acting commitments.

So it was no surprise to see her full of energy and sass as she took to the stage in Manchester for the first date of an intimate and small tour across the country.

Walking out to a packed crowd at Gorilla in Manchester, the 43-year-old former Eternal star couldn’t keep a smile off of her face.

Performing a collection of songs from across her pop career Louise certainly looked a home as she went solo in the spotlight.

The crowd were clearly having a night to remember, as a number of gig goers couldn’t resist snapping selfies and recording videos of the singer – despite the visual impairment it cost other fans.

The first date of her Louise tour certainly seemed to please the singer, as she took to social media after the gig to thank the crowd.

She tweeted: ‘#Manchester you were amazing!!!! Thank you all so much for coming last night!!!!’

Ed Sheeran to quit music once he and Cherry Seaborn have a baby

News of Ed Sheeran’s engagement comes with a sting in the tail – he’s now vowed to quit music once he and Cherry become parents.

While this may make some musicians breathe a sigh of relief – it might mean someone else will have a go at hitting the top of the charts as Ed will be taking a step back from music to focus on his family when the time comes.

And that time isn’t far off, given that he and girlfriend Cherry are now affianced.

Speaking to the Daily Star, he said: ‘My ambition is going to go to zero as soon as I have kids.

‘I am going to be like, “I do not really care anymore as I have another life to take care of”.’

He added: ‘It is totally understandable because you have children and your ambition shifts to be like, “I want to be a good father”.’

Ed announced his engagement just yesterday after successfully keeping it under wraps for two weeks, but allegedly came clean when the secret leaked.

Posting a loved up image, he wrote: ‘Got myself a fiancée just before New Year. We are very happy and in love and our cats are chuffed as well xx.’

Ed is now 26, and he’s said that he wants a baby before he’s 30, so better drink in Ed’s new music while there’s still time.

Example has finally returned to the music scene with new track The Answer.

The 35-year-old, real name Elliot Gleave, has said the song has been inspired by his children, three-year-old Evander and five-month-old Ennio.

Example even credited his youngest as being the reason he decided to make new music, saying it wasn’t until Ennio was born that he knew he wanted to create more.

Erin McNaught He said that the ‘lack of sleep’ pushed him back into the studio, and has helped him pen the ‘best’ three singles he’s ever recorded.

The singer/rapper The Daily Star newspaper: ‘I was so focused on family that I didn’t know whether to rap, sing or what to talk about.

‘Then after my second son was born I went to the studio every day for two weeks, because at home it was like zombie-land due to the lack of sleep.’

He added: ‘I wrote the three next singles in the space of a week, the best I’ve written in five years, I must have been on a baby comedown.

‘Maybe it released hormones because I went to studio with a clear head.’
