Music Notes: Pearl Jam on Target, Morrissey to resume tour

Quick Music Notes today, as I'll be out seeing Art Brut perform tonight (review to follow).

- The rumors are true -- Pearl Jam have partnered up with Target. The band's next release is going to come out without a major U.S. label, but it will be released with a group of partners. Target will be the "'big box' retail partner." The band also filmed a Target commercial directed by Cameron Crowe last week. [Billboard]

- Shortly after canceling his UK tour dates, Morrissey will now resume his world tour in Luxembourg on June 5. The singer has plans to reschedule London and Birmingham gigs for July and October. [NME]

- Moz actually relayed the information above via his MySpace page. And he had more news! An 18-track b-sides compilation called Swords will come out in October. [Morrissey MySpace]

- Pavement's Brighten the Corners will be out as a deluxe vinyl reissue on June 23. [Prefix Mag]

- In addition to planning and recording their next album, Sigur Ros will perform for the Dalai Lama this week. Talk about a spiritual experience! [Paste Magazine]
