Broken Bells, the collaboration between musician/producer Brian "Danger Mouse" Burton and singer/guitarist of the Shins, James Mercer, are back again!  The duo have recently released a short sci-fi film that features music from their upcoming album, After The Disco.  Although a full track listing and official release date have not been confirmed, After The Disco is due to be in stores by January 2014.  Small snippets of the upcoming release are used throughout the video.

The short film is based on a story written by Burton and was directed by Jacob Gentry (The Signal, Last Goodbye).  The film also features Anton Yelchin (Star TrekLike Crazy) and Kate Mara (House of Cards). The story follows a lonely and tired office worker named Oliver who encounters a batter and abandoned astronaut, Helen.  The two spark a romance while curiously traveling the terrain.

You can check out the short film below.

After collecting a couple of Grammy awards for their album El Camino on Sunday, Black Keys drummer, Patrick Carney, was randomly asked by TMZ for an opinion about Justin Bieber getting shut out of the nominations. To This, Carney responded "I dunno ... He's rich, right? Grammys are for like music, not for money ... and he's making a lot of money. He should be happy."

This did not sit well with Bieber, who took to Twitter to express his feeling on the situation:

You can imagine the wrath that has befallen Carney from Bieber Nation, but he's taking it all in stride by sending hilarious responses to angry Bielebers' tweets:

In other Black Keys news, according to MTV, it seems the guys are going to be headed back to the studio soon with their unofficial third band member, producer Brian Burton a.k.a. Danger Mouse.

Frontman Dan Auerbach says, "We are going to get in the studio with him but we've been working for the past month [it's] just [been] the two of us. [The songs are just] sketches. We won't know for another month, I don't think, honestly. We're basically going to make this record more like we made Brothers, where we had some help from Brian but we did a lot of it on our own," Carney added. "We're just going to play it by ear and when we do need help, we'll ask for Brian to come in and help us out. He's kind of our guy."

Pretty exciting! Here's hoping we know more in a month.
