Robyn and Kelis will kick off a North American co-headlining tour on July 23rd at The Music Box in Los Angeles. The two recently exchanged tweets about the outing, deciding to name it the “All Hearts” tour. Robyn and Kelis have selected UK sensation Dan Black and Far East Movement, Robyn’s Cherrytree Records label mates, to kick off the festivities. Black was named as one of the Top 15 rising music stars on the BBC’s “Sound of 2009” list and heralded in the States for his recent solo debut, UN, and its smash single/video, “Symphonies.” Far East Movement, who were recently handpicked by Lady Gaga as support, will open with their kinetic brand of hiptronica music and preside over the breaks between performers with a live version of their FM Cherrybomb DJ Spin-off, which airs Saturdays at 9 p.m. PDT at www.CherrytreeRadio.com <http://www.CherrytreeRadio.com>. The tour will conclude at New York City’s Webster Hall on August 5th.

Since I do love hearing podcasts, here is something that I recommend: The Rewind Podcast. The podcast’s all about promoting music of new artists and unsigned artists which gives them the chance to share their craft to more people. Notable guests in the past include Brendan Brown from Wheatus and Katy Jackson from ‘The Hype Theory.’

To hear the show, I am going to give out both the main and the iTunes links of the podcast:

Do listen to the podcast and hopefully, you’ll enjoy it!

Natalia Kills, as you may know, has been covered by the site in the past. Now, she releases her film series named Love, Kills xx. There are now two episodes released for the said film series which by the way is directed and written by Natalia herself. The film series tackles on Natalia’s imagination and serves as the visual companion for her upcoming album named Perfectionist. To satisfy your visual curiosities, I would be giving the links of the two episodes:

Episode 1
Episode 2

For your information, Natalia Kills’ debut album Perfectionist will be released later this year under Interscope/Cherrytree. The album features a star-studded cast of producers like Akon, Fernando Garibay, Jeff Bhasker, and Martin Kierszenbaum.

Kylie Minogue has announced on her website some details regarding her soon-to-be released single All The Lovers which will be included in her soon-to-be-released album entitled Aphrodite. The album artwork for the said upcoming album of Kylie looks absolutely stunning. To satisfy your visual curiosity, here is the album artwork in its full glory:
Hopefully, the album will be totally amazing. Kylie Minogue is one heckuva artist. I assume she will deliver with this effort of hers. Stay tuned for more updates.

Filipina songstress Charice Pempengco, more known mononymously as Charice, is all set to release her debut album on the 11th of May. After her making her mark in the music industry by appearing on the Ellen Degeneres Show and as well as on The Oprah Winfrey Show, she will hope to further increase her legion of fans known as ‘Chasters’ with her debut album which will have 12 tracks on the Standard Edition and 2 bonus tracks if pre-ordered in iTunes. The track listing of Charice’s self-titled debut album is as follows:

Standard Edition:
1. Pyramid
2. Reset
3. In This Song
4. Nobody’s Singin’ To Me
5. Thank You
6. I Love You
7. In Love So Deep
8. All That I Need To Survive
9. Nothing
10. The Truth Is
11. Did It For You
12. Note To God

Bonus Tracks (Available if the album is pre-ordered in iTunes):
13. Breathe You Out
14. Are We Over

Comments: I think the album background is great. However, Charice’s hair annoyed me big time. The hair made Charice look like someone who had a really terrible hair day. As for her face? She looks like an antagonist seriously. What has gone wrong? I am not kidding. Charice looked more annoying than usual in my opinion with the shot used for the album art. The font used for the album artwork is pleasing to the senses though.
