Tour manager Suzi Green, through her Healthy Touring initiative, has announced three free workshops on resilience for people who work in the live industry. “Everyone in the music industry is going back into an intense, fast paced environment after having so much time off”, she says. “Whilst this is exciting for the industry, it will be a shock to the system and may create some tension and anxiety. In these environments it is important to have trained skills to help manage energy, regulate emotions and decompress at the end of the day”. Find out more and book places here.
Kobalt has signed Madison Beer to a global publishing deal. “I’m so happy to partner with the Kobalt family”, she says. “The whole team is so passionate and aligned with my vision as an artist and my creative process. I am very excited for this relationship to grow with this new part of my team in place”.
Indie label Perfect Havoc has signed producer Pink Panda to a three single deal. The first will arrive in August this year, and follows the Universal/Island released ‘People (Get Together)’ and a string of remixes for artists including Dua Lipa and Kesha. “We are excited to be working with Pink Panda as we have been personal fans of their music for a while and looking forward to bringing them into the Perfect Havoc family”, says the label’s Robert Davies.
Deafheaven will release new album ‘Infinite Granite’ on 20 Aug. Here’s new single ‘Great Mass Of Color’.
Belly and Moneybagg Yo have released the video for new single ‘Zero-Love’.
José González has released new single ‘Head On’. His new album, ‘Lonely Valley’, is out on 17 Sep.
Lion Babe have released the video for their latest single ‘Signs’. “The song is about being aware of how signs show up in your life whether it is through people, patterns or life experiences, and how that can guide or warn you”, they say.
DJ Seinfeld has announced that he will release new album ‘Mirrors’ on 3 Sep through Ninja Tune. New single, ‘U Already Know’, is out now.
Orla Gartland will release her debut album, ‘Woman On The Internet’, on 20 Aug. “Although this album was made in 2020 it isn’t laced with lockdown blues”, she says. “It feels more like the soundtrack of new time to me; a sunnier time, a more hopeful time. I’m so proud of this record and beyond excited for everyone to hear it!” Here’s new single ‘Do You Mind?’
Anaiis has released new single ‘Reverie’. The song “explores the attachment to my lifelong dreams of being an artist, the expectations and disappointments I had on that path”, she says. “It’s recognition that my ambitions may not manifest in exactly the ways I may have imagined, but that there is still so much to love and celebrate about who I am in that process”.
Walt Disco have released new single ‘Selfish Lover’ – their first for Lucky Number. They say of the track: “Last year we got creative with thinking about old experiences – who can’t relate to having a relationship where they were with a selfish lover? The monotony of writing songs in our pyjamas made us want to think about the fun and chaotic times of the past and give ourselves the feeling of a party in our bedrooms”.
