It has not been officially announced but it looks like Van Halen is about to leave Warner Bros. Records after 35 years together.
HitsDailyDouble.com is reporting the signing. David Lee Roth, Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen, and Wolfgang Van Halen have been recording together for the better part of a year.
The band was to perform in Australia this month, but have since backed out. There is no status on tour dates although we have heard that they do plan to tour with the upcoming album in 2012.
The announcement of leaving Warner Bros. for Columbia may be delayed due to the news of R.E.M. breaking up and are signed to Warner Bros. as well.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Are They Still Relevant Being Back With "Diamond Dave"?
Introducing Lolene, who's "Electrick Hotel" drops later this summer.
This preview clips features 3 songs off the CD; Rich (Fake It Til You Make It), "Lionheart", and "Ordinary girl" along with some enticing dialogue.
Lolene also goes by the nickname "Miss Foo Foo" which is also the name of her company she runs. The British import wasn't going to settle for small time fame when she felt she had talent to be seen.
Glam as it may have been, the London scene wasn’t enough to contain someone as driven as Lolene. Armed with nothing but a suitcase and a demo CD, she moved to Hollywood in search of her big break. Based on Lolene’s songwriting talent, multi-platinum producer Jonathan “J.R.” Rotem (Rick Ross, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Sean Kingston) signed her to his publishing label Beluga Heights/Sony ATV. She went to work collaborating with such heavy-hitters as Andreas Carlsson (Backstreet Boys, ’N Sync, Celine Dion), Christopher Rojas (Pink, Backstreet Boys, Joss Stone), Makeba Riddick (Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce), Evan Bogart (The Writing Camp), Danja (Britney Spears, Nelly Furtado, Timbaland), Harvey Mason Jr. (Underdogs), and Christina Milian, for whom Lolene penned the single “Diamonds” featuring Kanye West.
So enjoy the trailer of Lolene n let me know what you think as her Columbia debut hits later this year.-Dr.FB
