A "new" Beatles single will arrive on Record Store Day in the U.K.: a limited-edition 7'' single of "Paperback Writer" backed with "Rain," Spinner reports, that was originally released in May 1966. A U.S. release of the single is also planned, though the date has not yet been established. As Rolling Stone reported yesterday, the Rolling Stones will unveil a "Plundered My Soul" single April 17th, too.

Fresh off of rocking the Boston Red Sox' Opening Day with "God Bless America," Steven Tyler will return to Fenway on August 14th, marking the first time Aerosmith has performed at the legendary baseball stadium, Blabbermouth writes.

Only days after Rihanna announced her Last Girl on Earth tour, Nicki Minaj revealed she's quitting the trek to finish her new album.

Former Death Row mogul Suge Knight has sued Kanye West for over a million dollars. Knight was shot in the leg during a 2005 VMAs afterparty hosted by West and alleges security was inadequate, the BBC reports.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
