The following post comes to us from Billboard Canada’s Richard Trapunski.


The Canadian singer will make the Junos part of her comeback, joining fellow performers Maestro Fresh Wes, The Beaches and Charlotte Cardin.

Furtado's comeback includes a stop at the 2024 Juno Awards in Halifax. The Canadian singer will host and perform at the music awards broadcast, which will air on CBC on March 24.

This year, Furtado returned with her first new music in six years, first teaming up with Dom Dolla and then with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland, whom she topped the charts with a decade and a half ago. She's poised for a big return to her mid-2000s peak, around the last time she hosted the Junos. At the 2007 ceremony, she took MC duties and became the first artist with multiple nominations to win every award she was nominated for.

Furtado won't be the only Canadian legend onscreen at this year's broadcast. Maestro Fresh Wes will be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. The rapper, recently recognized by the Slaight Family Polaris Heritage Prize, will also perform at the show. Long-running indie pop duo Tegan and Sara, meanwhile, will receive the 2024 Humanitarian Award from actor Elliot Page. For more on this story, please click on the link to Billboard Canada.

Neil Young's New Album 'FU##IN' UP' Has Live Recordings from Intimate Toronto Venue The Rivoli

FU##IN' UP, the new album by Neil Young & Crazy Horse, features performances of songs from his 1990 album Ragged Glory, recorded live at Toronto's Rivoli, seemingly during a much-rumoured secret show last November. He'll bring his upcoming tour to Toronto's Budweiser Stage in May, 2024.

Canadian icon Neil Young is adding to his immense discography with a new release this spring, a live album titled FU##IN UP'. The album, featuring Young's longtime band Crazy Horse, consists of nine live recordings from 2023 and is set for a limited edition two-LP release this April, in partnership with Record Store Day. According to the album's credits as noticed by Exclaim!, it was recorded at Toronto's Rivoli club, meaning it likely captures Neil Young & Crazy Horse's secret show at the Rivoli last November.

At that show — supposedly a private birthday party for Canada Goose CEO Dani Reiss — according to reports that generated a lot of buzz when they appeared online days later, Young performed most of his 1990 album Ragged Glory. FU##IN' UP features primarily songs from Ragged Glory, with new titles taken from lyric fragments. ("Over and Over," shared as a single, is now "Broken Circle.") The album features performances from Crazy Horse members Billy Talbot on bass, Ralph Molina on drums, and Nils Lofgren and Micah Nelson on guitar and piano, and Reiss is credited as a presenter.
