Although the final lineup is yet to be confirmed, Billboard Bulletin has learned that a number of major artists will be on the Elektra soundtrack to "Tomb Raider," expected to be one of this summer's biggest movies. The album, due May 29, will include material by Moby, OutKast, A Perfect Circle, Chemical Brothers, and Basement Jaxx. The film, starring Angelina Jolie, opens June 15.
Duran Duran and Los Lobos have split from Hollywood Records. Duran Duran, which is self-managed, is said to be shopping for a new deal; it released only one album -- last year's "Pop Trash" -- on Hollywood. Los Lobos, meanwhile, have shifted to Mammoth Records. The group heads into the studio this summer. Mammoth and Hollywood are both part of the Buena Vista Music Group.
