Hello from the snow-globe that is New York City!
* The Sundance Film Festival is into its second week – Anne Hathaway’s new film Song One debuted on Monday, and on Tuesday night a secret screening of Lars von Trier’s controversial Nymphomaniac, which has already opened in Europe but hasn’t yet in the US, took place. More from the fest here.
* Also at Sundance, Damon Albarn previewed songs off his debut solo album, Everyday Robots, which is due out in April.
* Quentin Tarantino is not happy. Someone leaked the script to his new movie, The Hateful Eight, so the director says he’s not making it anymore.
* There’s a new player in the streaming service game – Beats Music hopes to put the human touch back into compiling playlists.
* The Grammys are going for gold – with a performance line-up to top them all: Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr will perform, as the Beatles are honoured with the Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award, and Dave Grohl will be leading a super-jam with Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age and Lindsey Buckingham. Super-jam indeed!
