Atlantic Theater Company has announced its 2015-16 season at the Linda Gross Theater and Atlantic Stage 2. First up is a revival of Caryl Churchill's Cloud Nine. Directed by Churchill's frequent collaborator James Macdonald, the landmark drama about power, politics, sex, and Queen Victoria will have its first major New York revival in 30 years beginning in the fall. Next up, in November-December, is the New York premiere of the new musical These Paper Bullets!, written by Pulitzer Prize finalist Rolin Jones and featuring songs by Grammy-winning Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong.
Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong is among an array of rock personalities to guest on Swedish DJ Avicii's new album.

The album was in early stages of development so there was only speculation about whether these guests would appear on the final product.
The follow up to 2013's True now has a name - Stories - and a release date, 25 September.
