Although White Lies' 2009 debut album To Lose My Life shot straight to Number 1 in the London trio's native U.K., they haven't yet become a household name Stateside. That could be about to change with the release of their latest album, Big TV. Due out August 20 via Harvest Records, the ambitious record features arena-ready tunes tinged with darkness in the vein of Interpol and Depeche Mode that are simultaneously epic, thought-provoking and catchy.
"We all feel really good about this record," says lead singer Harry McVeigh from the living room of his flat in West London. "In some ways it's a big step on and quite different [from previous albums], but we really tried hard to focus on what makes the sound of White Lies. We tried to write songs that really fit with the sound of the band. We were thinking a lot about our live show and how well the songs would go over live. In some ways it's definitely a progression in terms of songwriting."Read More »from White Lies Find Truth on New Album

— MTV Music (@MTVMusicUK) July 13, 2013
The duo powered through a propulsive debut rendition of Holy Grail that had the entire crowd leaping into the air.
Justin appeared to raucous applause under a bright red baseball cap before his liquid vocals began rippling out over the crowd. When the beat proper dropped in we thought the ground of the Olympic Park would begin to crack from the madness that kicked off.
It was the second special guest appearance the duo shared at the festival. During Justin's Friday night headline performance (which also featured the debut of a brand-new song titled "Take Back the Night") Jay-Z came outRead More »from Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake Perform “Holy Grail” Live For First Time at Wireless Fest

- Disney secures rights for future 'Indiana Jones' films
(Reuters) - Walt Disney Co has gained marketing and distribution rights for any future "Indiana Jones" films under an agreement with Paramount Pictures, the studio that released the first four movies in the blockbuster franchise. Paramount, a unit of Viacom Inc, will retain distribution rights to the original four films, the companies said in a statement on Friday. The "Indiana Jones" movies were produced by Lucasfilm, which Disney acquired in 2012. Disney has not announced plans for a fifth "Indiana Jones" movie, though the new deal could make it easier to move forward on a new installment.
