Coldplay's cryptic artwork
British rock band Coldplay released cryptic artwork on social media on Tuesday matching a mysterious London Underground poster, leading fans to speculate that a new album is due for release. The rainbow-coloured rings on a black background had appeared on a poster in the metro with the words "December 4". Fans said the pattern was on a T-shirt worn by frontman Chris Martin at the Global Citizen Festival in New York in September.
Vice gets TV channel
Disney is investing about US$200 million (S$279 million) in Vice Media, which is getting its own cable television channel in a deal with A&E Networks, bringing the youth-focused media group to the mainstream.
A joint venture will launch a new channel tentatively called Viceland early next year.
Vice, which cultivates a "bad boy" image, gained notoriety for sending former NBA star Dennis Rodman to North Korea in 2013.
Tidal branches into TV
Tidal, the upstart streaming service led by music mogul Jay Z, on Tuesday branched into TV-style programming with comedy and drama series.
It announced two exclusive series for subscribers: Money And Violence, a bleak portrayal of the often bloody lives of drug dealers set in Jay Z's native Brooklyn; and No Small Talk, which features stand-up comedians. In January, Tidal will air a second season of Money And Violence, which premiered last year as a self-financed YouTube series.
