  • The release of Jack White's highly anticipated album Lazaretto is just around the corner (June 10), and he's already shared the title track and the intense instrumental "High Ball Stepper."

Sir Paul is able to break free and bond with a high-tech robot named Newman and their interactions are oddly endearing. [CoS]
