Lana Del Rey has reportedly recruited Stevie Nicks for her upcoming album.

The 31-year-old musician is currently working on her fourth studio record 'Lust For Life', and according to Pitchfork.com the Fleetwood Mac legend will be on hand to lend her vocals to one of the LP's tracks.

As of the time of writing, no other details are known about the supposed collaboration.

If the 68-year-old 'Landslide' hitmaker does appear on Lana's album, it will be the third confirmed collaboration for the record, as it was previously revealed that Sean Ono Lennon - the son of Beatles legend John Lennon and Yoko Ono - will perform on the song 'Tomorrow Never Came', whilst rapper The Weeknd lent his vocals to the album's title track.

The 'Born To Die' hitmaker unveiled plans for her latest studio venture last month when she took to Twitter to share a two-minute video in which she spoke about needing \"space\" to create her record and needed to be as \"far away\" from \"real life\" as possible.

She said: \"You know in this time an artist really needs a lot of space when they are trying to create something special.

\"A place to cultivate a world of their own away from the real world that is around them.

\"Luckily for me, I live right inside the middle of the edge of the Hollywood sign.

\"And this is how I spend most of my nights, perched high above the chaos that swirls within the city of angels below.\"

And Lana has already released one single, entitled 'LOVE', which is expected to appear on the album.

The record is a body of work created by Lana and her long-time producer and collaborator Rick Nowels. Producers Benny Blanco and Emile Haynie also participated on 'LOVE'.

'Lust for Life' has no confirmed release date as of yet, but is expected to drop later this year.

Harry Styles formed a secret friendship with Eagles star Glenn Frey before his death in 2016.

The 23-year-old star grew close to the American singer before he passed away aged 67 in January last year, and Harry even attended his memorial service in Los Angeles alongside the likes of Stevie Wonder and Don Henley.

Cameron Crowe, who interviewed Harry for Rolling Stone magazine, told The Sun newspaper: \"The first time I met him was for the memorial. He was really missing his friend.\"

The extent of Harry's friendship with the star was never previously known, but he did pay tribute to the Eagles singer a day after his death.

In a post on Instagram, Harry wrote: \"Rest in love and peace, Mr Frey.\"

Meanwhile, it was recently announced that Harry is to have a week-long residency on 'The Late Late Show with James Corden' in May.

The singer chatted to the CBS host in a FaceTime call posted on YouTube on Tuesday (04.25.17), explaining that he's heading to America and was looking for a temporary home.

Harry said: \"I'm coming to LA soon, and I need somewhere to stay.\"

His showbiz pal replied: \"Sure, if you want to stay at mine, you're welcome.\"

However, the 'Sign of the Times' musician was dissatisfied with the suggestion as he wanted to reside somewhere that felt more like \"home\".

Harry continued: \"Oh God no. No, no , no, no. I want to stay at the studio.

\"I just want to stay somewhere that feels like home.\"

James wasn't initially taken with the idea, but after putting in place a few house rules, he agreed to let Harry on the show.

In the clip, he said: \"Hang on. Are you saying you want to crash on 'The Late Late Show' coach, here, at the studio?

\"Feels a bit weird to be honest.

\"Fine, you're more than welcome to stay here for a week. But there are rules. No house guests.

\"I think you know what I mean. Zero house guests. If you're crashing here, you have to work for it, you're going to have to pitch in.\"

Jude Law will \"meet J.K. Rowling\" to discuss his role as Dumbledore in 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2'.

The 44-year-old actor has been cast as the young version of Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore in the sequel to the 'Harry Potter' spin-off, and has said he wants to meet with the author - who penned the 'Harry Potter' series - to talk about her \"vision\" for the character before he gets into costume.

Speaking to BBC London, Jude said: \"My first port of call I hope is to meet J.K. Rowling and to talk exactly about that and who [Dumbledore] is and who she wants him to be and learn a little bit more about her vision of this great man as a young man.\"

Jude was announced for the role - which was played by the late Richard Harris and then later by Michael Gambon in the original film series - last month, after director David Yates dubbed him as a \"phenomenally talented actor\".

He said: \"Jude Law is a phenomenally talented actor whose work I have long admired, and I'm looking forward to finally having the opportunity to work with him. I know he will brilliantly capture all the unexpected facets of Albus Dumbledore as J.K. Rowling reveals this very different time in his life.\"

Jude will appear alongside Eddie Redmayne, who plays lead role Newt Scamander, Johnny Depp as dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, and Zoe Kravitz as Leta Lestrange.

Also recently rumoured to be joining the cast is 'Glue' actor Callum Turner, who is believed to be playing Newt's brother Theseus Scamander.

Little else is known about the film, which is the second out of five planned movies, but it was revealed it will be based in Paris.

The films follow Magizoologist Newt, who travels the world protecting endangered magical creatures and to document them.

'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2' is scheduled for release in 2018.

David Fincher is being lined up to direct the 'World War Z' sequel.

The 54-year-old filmmaker - who has previously helmed the likes of 'Gone Girl' and 'Fight Club' - is being eyed by Paramount Pictures to take the lead on the sequel, with Brad Pitt returning to star.

The movie has yet to be officially given the green light, but that is expected to happen in the coming weeks, with production set to begin in the early part of 2018, according to Variety.

Brad was keen to work with the director on the sequel, having previously collaborated with him on the 1995 crime thriller 'Seven'.

However, the movie has reportedly been delayed by Brad's divorce from Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie.

David is cautious about making sequels, but he has apparently been open to listening to Brad's ideas about the follow-up movie.

Brad, 53, previously admitted he was keen to make a sequel to the 2013 hit.

He shared: \"We have so many ideas on the table from the time we spent developing this thing and figuring out how the zombie worlds work.

\"We gotta get the script right first to determine if we go further.\"

Brad said that the original movie created plenty of scope to make a sequel.

He explained: \"We have so many ideas and so much information -

we think we have a lot of stuff to mine from.\"

The Marc Forster-directed 'World War Z' was based on the title of the 2006 novel of the same name by Max Brooks.

The movie saw Brad play the part of Gerry Lane, a former UN investigator who tries to stop a zombie pandemic.

WOOLWICH, Maine (AP) \u2014 Dan Harrington makes his living unearthing marine worms by hacking away at mudflats with a tool that resembles the business end of an old steel rake.

He's fine with the freezing weather, the pungent aromas and the occasional nip from an angry crab, but his latest problem is the big one \u2014 the worms just aren't there like they used to be.

\"A bad day is zero worms,\" said Harrington, a second-generation worm raker. \"A bad day is when you try out five, six different spots and don't even make enough money to replenish the gas that you put in your tank.\"

Harrington's struggle, and that of his fellow wormers, has reverberations around the world. A mysterious drop in the harvest of two of the most popular worms for sport fishermen is proving expensive for anglers, perilous for bait shop owners and a threat to a way of life in Maine.

Maine harvesters are by far the U.S.'s largest suppliers of sandworms and bloodworms, twisty, fat critters that can grow longer than a foot and have teeth that inflict a painful bite. Wormers dig the wriggling creatures out of coastal muck so they can be sold to fishermen worldwide.

The worms are especially popular with American striped bass fishermen and in Europe. An October study in the journal Fish and Fisheries said bloodworms are the most valuable marine worm species on the retail bait market, and sandworms aren't far behind.

The worms, which burrow into the mud and eat things like algae and microorganisms, are coveted as bait because they are natural food to some fish.

But the worm falloff has disrupted the supply chain. Maine's catch of bloodworms has dropped from more than 600,000 pounds in 2004 to less than half that last year. Sandworms dipped by two thirds, to less than 130,000 pounds.

Scientists are struggling to figure out where the worms have gone. Among the factors that could play a role in the decline are rising temperatures in the Gulf of Maine, changes in currents that distribute worm larvae and increased harvesting pressure, said William Ambrose, a Bates College professor and marine researcher.

It's also possible a growing number of invasive green crabs is preying on the worms, said Brian Beal, a marine ecology professor at the University of Maine at Machias. But Beal and Ambrose say more research is needed to understand what's going on.

Efforts by the government to intervene have been met with resistance. A committee of the Maine Legislature this year considered a bill that would've shut down worm digging for four months a year to help preserve the industry, but it didn't pass.

The proposal generated skepticism from as far away as the suburbs of Sacramento, California, where Big Red Worm Co. sells worms airmailed from Maine in boxes alongside seaweed and cooling packs.

Shortening the season would be untenable, said operations manager Glenn Chadaris.

\"That would pretty much kill every bait shop,\" Chadaris said.

Fishermen, too, have been feeling the sting. The price for bloodworms at the dock has more than doubled since 2001, to nearly $16 per pound, and that cost is eventually borne by consumers. Sandworms are less expensive but have similarly jumped in value.

Patrick Paquette, a past president of the Massachusetts Striped Bass Association, said the retail price for a dozen marine worms has about doubled from five years ago. They typically sell for about $7 to $12 for a dozen.

As a wild food source for bottom-dwelling fish, worms are especially effective for catching winter flounder in Boston Harbor's popular recreational fishery, Paquette said. But, he added, \"It's extremely more expensive.\"

Maine considers marine worms a fishery, and it's one of the most valuable in a state known for crowd pleasers like lobsters and clams. The worm harvest was worth about $5.6 million last year.

Worming, which requires a $50 license, has long been an employment source in rural areas without much industry. Some fulltime diggers can make more than $50,000 in a good year, Harrington said. Others dig worms when they aren't raking clams, trapping lobsters or fishing for eels.

Some suspect the lower harvest might mean fewer people are worming, but state data show the number of diggers has held steady, with 880 in 2007 and 857 last year.

It's also possible the remaining diggers are doing the back-breaking work less often as they age or have a harder time finding worms.

Harrington, who's been raking for 38 of his 46 years, describes his back as \"a train wreck\" but says he plans to stick with it.

\"The idea of walking in through a gate and having it close behind me doesn't appeal to me,\" he said. \"I like to be out in nature, out in the mud.\"

CHICAGO (AP) \u2014 The Billboard chart-topping rapper Kevin Gates has been sentenced to 30 months in an Illinois prison after pleading guilty to a gun charge.

The 31-year-old Gates \u2014 whose legal name is Kevin Jerome Gilyard \u2014 of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was sentenced after pleading guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm.

According to court records, Cook County Circuit Court Judge Neil Linehan gave Gilyard credit for 34 days already spent in jail in the case.

The Chicago Tribune reported Wednesday (http://trib.in/2q7SchU) that Gates was arrested in Chicago and charged in October 2013. He avoided custody until March.

Gates came to prominence in 2013 and his studio album \"Isiah\" reached No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 last year.
