As you might have noticed, Hitsville U.K. now has its very own URL. Aren’t we posh, eh? This doesn’t mean we’re no longer on Tumblr - we could never never leave you guys - just that we’re a bit more legitimate in the eyes of the wider internet, which is the most important thing about blogging, of course.
Pop wedding of the day: These hip indie pop kids grow up so fast. One day they’re just a name and a Soundcloud link, the next they’re getting hitched *sniff*. Sorry, I just get emotional at weddings. Best of luck to Sky and Zach!

This Makes 2013 The Best Musical Year Ever of the day: Bit late on reporting this, but OH MY GOD. There have been and will be a lot of comebacks this year: Timberlake, of course, Bowie, Neutral Milk Hotel, Kanye, Beyonce, Daft Punk, but JT giving us a sequel to The 20/20 Experience gets him more than a few brownie points with us. We waited seven years for new music while he went off and acted/tried to save MySpace, and now we’re getting two in the space of a few months. Not too sure about The 20/20 Experience (2 of 2) for a title though. Just call it I’m Better Than Every Other Pop Star
D’OH-light News of the day: Apologies for that dreadful pun. In case you missed the big announcement that Sigur Ros will be appearing in the season finale of The Simpsons, here’s what the Icelandic band will look like in the episode. The trio follow in the recent footsteps of Lady Gaga, Tom Waits, and The Decemberists in appearing on the long-running sitcom, but they will also be scoring part of the episode as well as reinterpreting that classic theme tune.
Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons and Futurama (as if we needed to tell you that), said of the appearance:
“I’m a longtime fan of Sigur Rós, and we’re honored to bring their Icelandic, ambient moods to our goofy cartoon show.”
The episode, entitled “The Saga Of Carl”, will air on May 19th.
