Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Hey all you slackers moseying on back from the Midem festivities via train, plane or automobile, don’t forget BPI’s Kiaron Whitehead, PPL’s Mark Douglas and Record Of The Day’s Paul Scaife are returning via bicycle. Why? Well, that’s a very good question the three cyclists might themselves wonder half way back, but it’s an admirable endeavour not least because of the charities it’s in aid of. Sponsor em here.

• Insieme Music Publishing, the publishing affiliate of indie label Glassnote, has recruited Sharon Tapper, previously with Razor & Tie, to the role of Head of Publishing. “Nurture”, says Tapper.

• Steven Melrose, formerly co-MD at Sony’s Epic Records UK, has joined Crown Talent & Media Group as Head Of Music. And why not? “Consolidated”, says Melrose.

• Well Foxes is back then. Look, here’s her new single ‘Body Talk’. It’s out on 24 Jul.

• LA Priest will release his debut album, ‘Inji’, on 29 Jun. Here’s a new track called ‘Lorry Park’.
