Music rights firm Reservoir has signed A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie to a worldwide publishing deal. “My team and I are THRILLED”, says the rapper.

Torres has signed a new record deal with Merge. She will release her fourth album next year, the follow-up to 2017’s amazing ‘Three Futures’. “I feel like I’ve lived an entire lifetime in the three years since recording ‘Three Futures'”, she says. “This new record documents the significant fruits, for better or worse, of some terrifically delusional pursuits”.

Inspired by Warner Music’s admittedly inspirational new logo for what was Warner Bros Records – you know, the circle with a bit sliced off – BMG’s production music division – aka BMG Production Music – has also had a rebrand, employing the always popular red arrows in a square concept. What a time to be alive!

Trade bodies BPI, AIM and MPA have announced details of this year’s UK trade mission to India, supported by the government’s Department For International Trade.
