Here are the top 3 stories today from the world of modern rock.

Metallica’s James Hetfield will be one of the artists interviewed for a new documentary about the life and career of late Thin Lizzy frontman and songwriter Phil Lynott. The film, titled Phil Lynott: Songs For While I’m Away, is in the works from award-winning Irish filmmaker Emer Reynolds.

It will also feature interviews with Thin Lizzy members Eric Bell, Scott Gorham and Darren Wharton, along with U2’s Adam Clayton, Suzi Quatro, Huey Lewis and more.

Toronto indie rock collective, Broken Social Scene, shared a new song called “All I Want.” The song will be part of an ep that is coming out on February 15th called Let’s Try The After – Part 1 (Arts & Crafts) . Last week the band debuted a couple other songs off the record, “1972” and “Can’t Find My Heart.”

The point is to keep going,” says band leader Kevin Drew. “We have more to give. These songs have lived beside us and become our commencement party while continuing together. We hope you enjoy this EP for you and me.”

Vampire Weekend have teased a pair of new tracks with a cryptic two-hour video titled ‘120 Minutes of Harmony Hall Guitars’.

Last week they announced that they will release an 18 track double album this year and would unveil “three 2-song drops every month until the record is out”, beginning this week.

Now, a two-hour video on YouTube promises that the songs ‘Harmony Hall’ and ‘2021’ will arrive this Thursday, January 24.
