Chloe x Halle = New LP
Chloe x Halle, the sister duo that Beyoncé signed to her Parkwood Entertainment label in 2015, chose to cover Drake’s “One Dance” as part of their two-song set at the NYX Face Awards in Los Angeles on Aug. 20. But they’ll soon have an entire album of original material to perform. The sibs’ father and co-manager, Doug Bailey, told Overheard that Chloe, 18, and Halle Bailey, 16, plan to release their first full-length in September, just months after dropping their debut EP, Sugar Symphony, in April. He said that Beyoncé, who featured the pair as her opening act on the European leg of her Formation Tour, has had “creative input on the record,” but he stopped short of revealing the LP’s title or the producers who worked with his daughters. He did say that the album will feature 10 to 12 songs, all written by Chloe and Halle.
Brandi Glanville: No GNR + 1
Brandi Glanville’s friendship with Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan’s wife, Susan Holmes-McKagan, apparently doesn’t give her carte blanche at the band’s shows. The Famously Single cast member was denied access to the VIP pit at GNR’s Aug. 18 show at Dodgers Stadium in L.A. when she tried to bring along a friend who didn’t have the proper bracelet. Although Glanville was credentialed and tried to charm the VIP section’s security guard, she got nowhere and the women eventually returned to their reserved seats.
Dan Auerbach’s Road Trip
Black Keys guitarist Dan Auerbach drove his wife and one-year-old child from their home in Nashville to Montauk, NY, for his side band The Arcs‘ gig at The Surf Lodge there on Aug. 20. His band mate Nick Movshon, who’s also played with TV on the Radio, didn’t have to travel nearly as far for the performance. He has a summer home in nearby Sag Harbor. The band’s set consisted of “Velvet Ditch,” “Bad Girl,” “Keep on Dreaming” “Pistol” and “Little Baby,” and Christie Brinkley‘s 21-year-old son Jack was among the fans in the audience. Auerbach fortified himself with oysters in the club’s green room before taking the stage.
