There is just a ton of surprises to be had in today’s roundup—from Macca on an electro track to more of Kanye West’s collaborators—but did you know that Hodor is a DJ? Read on to see what’s up.

- Grime kingpin Dizzee Rascal has announced that his fifth album, appropriately titled The Fifth, arrives on July 1, and with it comes a string of guest performances from Tinie Tempah, Calvin Harris, will.i.am, Robbie Williams, and more. (full story)

- Speaking of collaborations, it would seem that mysterious Italian electro duo have linked up with The Beatles’ Paul McCartney for a new single. Check out a few seconds of “Out of Sight” below. (full story)


- Yesterday we found out that Daft Punk did indeed produce some music for the new Kanye West album. Today, there’s news that Arca has done the same. (full story)

- More surprises: We guess that if you pay real close attention to Ireland’s dance-music scene, you may already know that Game of Thrones star Kristian Nairn (aka Hodor) is an established DJ. Then again, maybe you’re like us and had no idea. (full story)

- Lastly, a free Prins Thomas mix? We’ll take it!
