Gotye is going back to Basics. The singer behind last year’s hit song “Somebody That I Used to Know” returned to his former band, called the Basics, and they released a new music video. Check it out below. Also, Moby announced a new album, and revealed that it would hit stands later this year. All that and more below.

  • Moby Announced New Music: Moby will release a new album, titled Innocents, on October 1st. The followup to 2011′s Destroyed will be considered the singer’s eleventh studio album. Billboard reports that the record will feature artists like Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips, Skylar Grey, Mark Lanegan, Damien Jurado, Cold Speck, and Inyang Bassey. Moby will promote the album by performing three live shows in Los Angeles.
  • Randy Blythe Will Write A Memoir: Lamb of God‘s Randy Blythe feels the need to tell you his story, and will do so in a memoir. Billboard reports that the singer’s untitled book will center on his involvement in a fan’s death in the Czech Republic, which made headlines last June. He was also arrested (on charges of manslaughter), tried, and acquitted earlier this year. The book will hit shelves in the spring of 2014.
  • Gotye Releases New Music Video With Former Band: Gotye’s year has been pretty quite thus far. He was everywhere in 2013, but 2012 hasn’t really been his year. But he’s still making music, in case you were wondering. The singer has reunited with his former band the Basics; they came together in 2002, and have four studio albums. They’ll be hitting the road pretty soon, and took the time to make and released a music video for “So Hard For You.” Check it out:

  • “Trying To Be Cool” Music Video: Phoenix released the video for “Trying To Be Cool,” a song off their latest record Bankrupt! According to Billboard, the making of the video was tedious, since the crew had to continuously change camera shots every 25 seconds. Check it out:
