(CBS News) There's a lot of new music being released in this busy week in entertainment by artists as varied as Pink, Paul Simon, Carly Rae Jepsen and Kanye West.

"The Truth About Love" is the name of Pink's sixth studio album, coming out on Tuesday, and it includes the hit single "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)," which has climbed charts this summer in the U.S., Australia and Germany.

Special Section: The Emmy Awards

A multiple Grammy winner who began his career in the 1960s as part of the duo "Simon and Garfunkel," Simon is releasing a two-disc CD/DVD combo "Live in New York City." At the other end of the spectrum is "Kiss," the second album of "Call Me Maybe" singer Jepsen.

"Kanye West Presents G.O.O.D. Music Cruel Summer" is a collaborative effort, like last year's "Watch the Throne," and features such artists as John Legend, 2Chainz, Big Sean, R. Kelly and Jay-Z.

Boyle; "The Winter of the World: Book Two," the second novel in historical writer Ken Follett's trilogy; and "The Life of Secret Object," a sixth novel by Susanna Moore.
