British singer-songwriter, Jake Bugg will be releasing his highly anticipated self-titled US debut album on April 9th on Mercury Records. After its release, Jake will be all over US television with appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman on April 10th, The Ellen Show on April 12th and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on April 22nd.

After being impressed with his song, “Two Fingers“, we just had to interview this guy. You can listen to the interview here and watch his music video for “Two Fingers” below and see what all the fuss is about.
Despite reports that Interscope had snatched up Greyson Chance, it seems that Ellen won the race. Ellen will be making a HUGE announcement on today’s show. She has formed her own record label called eleveneleven that is being set up in collaboration with Telepictures Productions with Greyson being her first artist.
“Greyson … inspired me to start a record label called eleveneleven. He is my first artist and we are making a record together,” DeGeneres said in a statement released on Tuesday.
DeGeneres said she will continue to use her show as a platform to find new artists.
Guy Oseary, Madonna’s manager, and Troy Carter, Lady Gaga’s manager, have signed on to co-manage Chance.
This kid is set!
