Sights and Sounds: Elbow, The Clash's Paul Simonon and Mick Jones, Vevo streaming iTunes Festival at SXSW

Elbow has a new album out today that will likely prove to be one of the best discs of 2014.
Good morning everybody. Here is a short (but important) roundup of music stuff pulled from my stuffed inbox...

Firstly, Elbow's terrific new album is out today. I can't stop listening to this outstanding album, and it is truly one of the greatest albums in memory. Read my review of The Take Off And Landing of Everything on the Music News Nashville site. For more information on the band, visit their official Web site here.

Listen to a new track in which The Clash's Paul Simonon and Mick Jones team up with Frank Ocean and DiploThe song, titled "Hero," marks the first time the two ex-Clash mates have released music together since they appeared on Gorillaz’s Plastic Beach in 2010.

Vevo, the world’s leading all-premium music video and entertainment platform, has announced it will live stream this week’s iTunes Festival at SXSW.
