"See You on the Other Side"
Having released a greatest-hits package in 2004--a set that was notable for its cover renditions of such songs as Cameo's "Word Up!" and Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall"--Korn now returns with a new batch of original compositions. "See You on the Other Side" is the band's seventh studio offering and its first for its new label, Virgin Records.
The album's debut single is "Twisted Transistor," the video for which is a star-studded affair that features Lil Jon, Snoop Dogg, Xzibit and David Banner. "See You on the Other Side" will be released in two versions, including a deluxe edition with a five-song bonus disc.

Multi-platinum rapper Eminem is set to release his first greatest-hits package. The 17-track CD will feature such fan favorites as "The Way I Am," "My Name Is," "Stan," "Lose Yourself" and "Cleanin' Out My Closet." The set also includes a live version of "Stan" that was recorded as a duet with piano-man Elton John. Eminem's most recent studio effort was 2004's chart-topping "Encore," which produced the mega-hit "Just Lose It."

"A Little More Personal (Raw)"
Film-star Lindsay Lohan takes a break from the big screen to deliver her second full-length album. "A Little More Personal (Raw)," the follow-up to 2004's "Speak," finds the pop star shedding her teen-dream image in favor of a more grown-up persona (a la Britney, Pink and Xtina). The album features 10 new compositions (seven of which are co-authored by Lohan) as well as covers of Cheap Trick's "I Want You to Want Me" and Stevie Nicks' "Edge of Seventeen."
