We're not entirely sure what's going on across the pond, but while we are all sat around a sparkly tree giving ADDICT gifts to our loved ones, some of music's biggest names will be dropping their newest releases.
It looks like both Timbaland and Rihanna have decided to try their luck at overshadowing the holidays! NME reckon Rihanna's video is hinting at the release, "the change of pace in her clips suggests the album could come out as soon as Christmas Day" while Timbaland has himself announced plans for his release to be 25th December.
Not only that, Timbaland will be releasing his first ever mix-tape, titled King Stays King, offering 16 tracks and featuring collaborations with Yung Thug, Rich Homie Quan, and Blaze.
As an extra gift for the season, King Stays King will also feature a previously unheard song from the late R&B singer Aaliyah.

It's no secret we are fans of art!
Down here at ADDICT HQ we are massive fans of Shepard Fairey + crew. Their current exhibition is called Covert to Overt and is on at The House of Vans until 6th December. It tells the compelling story of the OBEY crew's travels from Jon Furlong’s perspective through photographs.
Check out Covert To Overt which captures Fairey’s street art, gallery exhibitions and murals from 2009 to the present!

We went back to basics with our Autumn Winter 15 collection to create a small but strong line of easy-to-wear statement pieces, which still retaining the technical detailing ADDICT has always been known for.
Key pieces to the collection include the strong tailoring of the Padded Shirt Jacket, the white Kwills camouflage printed Neo Mariner Jacket, and, most notably, the Reflective Reversible Windcheater which features a completely high reflective outer shell.
In true form, we have released some limited edition pieces in collaboration with two very talented artists. in our Artist Series this season, you can find work by world-renowned illustration agency ilovedust, who delivered their trademark abstract typography for the Operations Jacket, and also an amazing all over print by draughtsman Kwills, who presented this season’s brushstroke woodland camo print.

Meet the photography mastermind, Tom Joy, who shot our Autumn Winter 15 collection fresh off the plane from Norway!
Name: Tom Joy
Location: Originally from Aberdeen - I've been in Leeds for just over 2 years now. LEEDSLEEDSLEEDS!
Has also worked with the likes of: Red Bull, The Hundreds, Harvey Nichols, Abandon Ship, Prevalence Co, and I've just finished up a pretty cool project for Leeds City Council related to my @LeedsLurking project
What are you listening to right now: The Rolling Stones - Give me Shelter. Shout out to my Dad for this influence!
Why Photography: Fundamentally, photography is something that has never held me back. I have control of it, I have control being self employed and I can go at the pace I want. Back at Secondary School I wanted to pursue business marketing - I guess I'm doing that to a large extent being a freelancer whilst also being able to engage with my creative side. There's only a few things that let me switch off completely and I am probably most relaxed when I'm behind my camera focussed on what's in front of me.
Which ADDICT piece was your favourite from the shoot? That's tough... I really liked the olive bomber jacket - the quilting on the exterior was cool and the vibrant orange looked rad! I also really liked the grey collared jacket. It's simple and could be smart or casual - perfect.
