It’s not much, but given the relative quiet on LP6 news, something is better than nothing. You can discuss this snippet at the LP6 sub-forum now. The article read:

What are some of the projects on the cards?

With Parlophone, we’re kicking off with the Kylie single that will go this week, and of course she’s working incredibly hard living between London and Sydney, and appearing on The Voice, which will be a fantastic platform for the single and albums. We’ll have her in front of millions of homes every week. As always she’s so focused, she has a new management deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation, she’s hungry to have one of her biggest records ever. A Coldplay record is coming soon, which is exciting. As a band, they’re really keen to reach new heights and make their best record ever. Lily Allen’s record is happening soon, there’s a Chromeo record, Bat For Lashes record, a Damon Albarn record. There’s rumours of a Gorillaz record, and will we ever get this Blur record? I caught up with David Guetta when he was here for Stereosonic. He’ll have a record in the middle of the year. He’s got a great list of collaborators and he’s definitely got the right attitude; he really set the bar and changed the game and has been such a leader. Tinie Tempah’s here in a few weeks for Future Music, 2 Door Cinema Club record will be a big one.

Parlophone, the legendary EMI division was sold as a requisite of Universal’s acquisition last year of EMI. Warner Music picked up the global Parlophone Label Group last February for £487 million (around $765 million at the time) and has integrated its asset across its markets. It was that mega-merger of Universal and EMI which also led to Mark Poston exiting EMI after more than a decade.
