Libertines' Pete Doherty Charged with PossessionBBC News reports that singer Pete Doherty has been charged with one count of possession of cocaine following an inquiry into the death of a documentary filmmaker.

Robin Whitehead, 27, a member of the Goldsmith family who was working on a documentary on the singer, was found dead in a flat in Hackney in January after a suspected overdose, and Doherty was arrested on suspicion of supplying drugs. He has now been charged with possession and remains on bail.

"The charges relate to an offence alleged to have taken place between 21 and 25 January," a Metropolitan Police spokesman said.

The 31-year-old Babyshambles frontman was one of four people questioned following Ms Whitehead's death from a suspected overdose.

Robin Whitehead, the granddaughter of the late Teddy Goldsmith, elder brother of the financier Sir James Goldsmith and founding editor and publisher of The Ecologist, was making a documentary, "The Road to Albion" on Mr Doherty's former band The Libertines. Miss Whitehead was found dead in January in Hackney, London.

R.E.M.'s fifteenth studio album Collapse Into Now features vocals by Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, American singer-songwriter Patti Smith, and Canadian-born electronic musician Peaches.

In October, R.E.M.'s manager Bertis Downs told BBC Radio 6 Music that the band's new album will be called Collapse Into Now. Yesterday, multi-instrumentalist Mike Mills revealed on SPIN that the new album, due to be released early next year, has a more "expansive" sound than 2008's Accelerate and includes some special guests.

The twelve-track release is produced by Garret "Jacknife" Lee, who produced Accelerate and whose credits also include studio albums for Snow Patrol, U2, Block Party, Weezer, and Editors. The album includes "All the Best," "Walk It Back," and the record's closing song "Blue," which features vocals from Patti Smith. The band has yet to announce a full tracklisting. Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder sings on "It Happened Today," and Peaches is the vocalist on a track which has the word "alligator" in its title and features guitarist Lenny Kaye, best known as a member of the Patti Smith Group.
