Adele

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Adele’s ’21’ is the best-selling album of the millennium so far, according to the Official Charts Company. It’s shifted over 4.7 million copies. She’s got competition though. Ed Sheeran’s ‘x’ has just passed the two million mark. That said, he took a whole 38 weeks to get there, while Adele managed the same sales in just thirteen.

• Geeneus has unveiled another new track, this one titled ‘Red Velvet’. It’ll be released through Rinse on 30 Mar.

• Gorgon City have put a remix EP up on SoundCloud, ahead of the release of a full remix album exclusively through Beatport on 7 Apr.

• Years & Years have announced that they will release their debut album, titled ‘Communion’, on 22 Jun. From it, this is ‘Worship’.

• Elle Exxe has released a video for her debut single, ‘Lie To Me’, which is out next week. She’ll play a one-off show at The Islington in Islington (duh) on 2 Apr.

• Whitesnake have announced that they will release a new album, called ‘The Purple Album’, on 15 May. It’s a collection of covers songs originally recorded by frontman David Coverdale while he was vocalist in Deep Purple. So that’s confusing.

• Former Gallows and Pure Love frontman Frank Carter has given fans a sneak peak of his new project. See if you can work out what’s going on here.
