More than 40 years after George Harrison put together the all-star ‘Concert for Bangladesh,’ rock fans have become inured to the concept of stars coming together in order to combat societal ills — and these days, in order to really get attention, a charity festival has to have a pretty impressive lineup. Like, for instance, the 2012 Global Festival, scheduled for Sept. 29 in New York City’s Central Park.

He hasn’t released a new album since 2008′s ‘Modern Guilt,’ but Beck has been on a recording tear lately, surfacing in a variety of unusual and/or unexpected places — and for his latest trick, he’s decided to contribute three new songs to the PlayStation game ‘Sound Shapes.’
After teasing the imminent arrival of their second album with a mysterious trailer and promises of a fall release, Mumford and Sons have lifted the veil completely, revealing that the new LP, ‘Babel,’ will arrive in stores on Sept. 25.
