According to the annual report from the IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry), total music sales revenues in 2012 increased by 0.3% from 2011. This marks the first time that record sales have increased since 1999. Revenue from digital sales increased by 9% from 2011, and revenue from streaming services increased by a whopping 44%. The report also tells us that the best-selling song worldwide last year was "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen (12.5 million units sold), and that for the second consecutive year Adele had the best-selling album, moving 8.3 million copies of 21 in 2012.

According to SPIN, at a show in Paris last night Kanye West made what seems to be a vague reference to his much-anticipated follow-up to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, saying "I've been working on my new shit. I'll be back in a couple of months." Whether that is all talk or rooted in reality remains to be seen, but jump to the replies for a video clip of the statement taken by a fan.

Welcome to My Back Pages, a new collaborative staff feature that will survey a landscape of renowned classics and unheralded gems alike...most of which no one around here ever writes a word about. The rules are simple and loose: we won’t cover anything from this millennium and we will avoid all or most AP.net favorites—though we might make an exception if something is nearing a milestone anniversary. Beyond that though, anything is fair game. So if you have an album, artist, or genre you would like to see discussed in this feature, feel free to throw us a few recs.

This week, we are analyzing the lasting legacy of U2's War, which celebrates the 30th anniversary of its...

Breakdowns and bass drops seem to win record deals these days, but Easy Killer Records & Apparel must have missed the memo. Rather than succumbing to current (and awful) trends, the new label has snatched up several hard-working, highly-respected unsigned acts covered regularly 'round these parts. We've teamed with the guys to announce their launch roster, which includes Brian Marquis, The Company We Keep, Culprit, Night Verses, and Ramin Niroomand (In Fear & Faith pianist), as well as several others. Hit the replies for the full roster and announcement.

Morrissey was supposed to play "Jimmy Kimmel Live" tomorrow night. Also appearing on the show: the cast of the A&E duck hunting-based reality show "Duck Dynasty." You know how this is going to end, right? Morrissey says he won't play unless they boot the duck-hunters. Kimmel has replaced Morrissey with Churchill.
Morrissey is thankful for being invited to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live tomorrow, February 26. However, he cannot morally be on a television program where the cast members of Duck Dynasty will also be guests. Morrissey would be honored to play the show, if Duck Dynasty were removed. Morrissey stated, "As far as my reputation is concerned, I can't take the risk of being on a...
