Alanis' Baby Bump Pic

Singer also quotes profound words from her 5 year old.

Alanis Morrissette has posted an amazing photo on her Instagram account that shows the singer/songwriter happy and healthy in the later stages of her pregnancy.

 

Alanis also quoted her five year old son, Ever Imre, in the caption on her Instagram account, which states "you have to be extra gentle around ladies because they are the most helpful people in the world 'cause they make persons."

Gees, profound words from a 5 year old. Get him writing lyrics ASAP!

If you know pregnancies, you can pretty much guess that she looks ready to go in this photo. And, as luck would have it, one week or so later, she did.

Triple M Record Of The Week: Peter Garrett ‘It Still Matters’

Peter Garrett is Triple M's Record Of The Week

Garrett points to the smoldering intent of the final track, It Still Matters, to illustrate the band's potency. "Obviously musicians of this calibre will get to the point pretty quickly, but in this case it was really exciting. By the time you finish mixing you realise it's all there. You've really got to bank those ones when they happen. They don’t come along every day."

Watch the official film clip:


WHAT IS RECORD OF THE WEEK?

The Triple M Record Of The Week is what it says it is…

Each week Triple M selects a song from all the new music being considered for the playlist as the ‘Record of The Week’.

It’s a song we think is going to do big things and we want to give it a head start and feature it on air across the week.

We’ll also get your feedback on it and feature it in the Music Jury.

So far we’ve featured the new Peter Garrett, Blink 182 and Red Hot Chili Peppers songs, as well as the great new songs from UK artist Tom Odell and Canadian 6-piece The Strumbellas…

INXS' Blessing On New Hutch Doco

New documentary expected to capture INXS legend like never before.

Fresh from the news that we have some new Michael Hutchence material courtesy of a Sydney entrepreneur who seems to have ruffled a few feathers, news just out suggests that the remaining members of the band and their long-time manager C.M. Murphy have given official blessing to a new documentary to be made by the legend's long-time friend and director of many of INXS' very best film clips, Richard Lowenstein.

"I have been working on the definitive documentary film journey into the heart and soul of this complex, shy, poetic and exceptionally charismatic man for many years," he said in a statement.

"To be able to embark on this film now with such great partners as UMG (Universal Music Group), UK's Passion Pictures, Ghost Pictures, Chris and INXS is extremely exciting and I know that together we are going to tell this story like no one else can."

The documentary has the backing of the record company, meaning that the documentary is most likely to feature actual INXS music, which would be considered fairly important when telling the life story of one of Oz's truly great frontmen.

"Michael Hutchence was a musical genius who led one of the world's biggest bands to global stardom, only to succumb to a tragic end," said David Blackman, Universal Music Group's head of film and television development, in a statement.

"We have assembled an incredible team that is committed to telling Michael's story and providing the world with a portrait of a man who left behind an enduring musical and cultural legacy."

Either way, for fans of INXS and Michael Hutchence, you can look forward to the documentary, expected to land in theatres in late 2017.
