This Week’s Culture Cuts: Anchorman 2 trailer, M.I.A's 'Bring The Noize', Jay-Z's New Album

There's been plenty to get excited about this week - the approach of Glastonbury and the Wolf Of Wall Street trailer, but here's the other culture stuff you may have missed this week...

1) Watch The Anchorman 2 Trailer

"Champ" Kind, Brick Tamland, Brian Fantana and Ron Burgundy return for more news gathering, jazz-flute playing and generally staying classy in this long awaited sequel. Plus, Kristen Wiig makes a cameo appearance, what more could you want really? Get ready for all new catch phrases, people!

2) Listen To MIA’s Bring The Noize

The much awaited follow up to Bad Girls finds Maya rapping over an experimental, stripped-back backing track. Just as challenging and brilliant as you’d imagine. It's from her forthcoming, much-delayed fourth album Matangi, out later this year.


3) Take A Peak At The To Do List Trailer

Aubrey Plaza is one of the most amazing (in a rather long list of amazing people) in Parks And Recreation. Her new film The To Do List looks like it will be brilliant because a) it’s set in the 90s (1993 to be precise – check out Salt N Pepa on the soundtrack), b) the trailer features Saturday Night Live comedy greats Andy Samberg, Bill Hader and c) There’s a joke about ‘skorts’ (a skirt/shorts hybrid) in it.

4) Listen To The New Origi-babes Song


…Sorry we meant 'Mutya Keisha Siobhan' who are back, back, back with a new track Flatline. Unlike either Boys or Lay Down In Swimming Pools, this short teaser of Flatline suggests that they’ve gone all "Florence & The Machine" on us, ditching the subtle R&B noodlings for something more epic and 'stadium ready' in style. We eagerly await the full song.

5) Get Excited About Jay-Z’s New Album

Apparently Jigga’s new album The Magna Carta Holy Grail (he’s Sean Carter- geddit?) has already gone platinum from the pre-orders alone, and this cheeky teaser suggests that this is a future classic in the making. It shows him pal-ing around with Timbaland, Rick Ross, Swizz Beats, Pharrell (headlock time!) and saying things like 'we need to make the new rules.' What are these new rules? We can't wait to find out!
