Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today’s top gossip:

The Enemy‘s Tom Clarke has said he wants to write the official song for England’s 2010 World Cup campaign. The singer said he thinks the quality of the song could determine how well England do in the competition next June. “If we brought out a good song England might win it,” he said. The singer also revealed that he’s keen to get some of the current England stars involved in the creative process too. “I’d like to get Peter Crouch to rap. We’d let him do his robot dance too. I reckon Wayne Rooney could be an angry rapper,” he said. “We’d do it just so we could say, ‘We’ve recorded the official England song'” (The Sun).
