Ryan Newman has been appointed Apple Music‘s new Head Of Editorial for the UK & Ireland. The previous holder of the role, Austin Daboh, was announced as Atlantic Records UK’s new EVP yesterday. “Massive congratulations to Ryan Newman”, tweeted Daboh. “Another black brother given a leading position at a global company”.



Keep your eyes peeled during the first trailer for the upcoming new ‘Bill & Ted’ movie and you might spot Arcade Fire’s Win Butler. The musician confirmed on social media that he plays a member of The Future Council in the film.



Gorillaz have released the fourth of their ‘Song Machine’ tracks. This one, ‘Friday 13th’, is a collaboration with Octavian.

Torres has released an offcut from her recent ‘Silver Tongue’ album, titled ‘Too Big For The Glory Hole’. “I wrote it before I moved in with my girlfriend”, she says. “I was living alone in the East Village before and having a hard time of it. This song is what came of the loneliness”.

Ane Brun has released new single ‘Honey’, inspired by a cassette recording of her eighteen year old self talking. “While listening back, I realised that the woman I am today had reconnected with the girl on the tape, and that simple act had made me feel in some way more whole”, she says. “I decided to write a love song to my young self that day”.

Vessel has released a re-work of 2018 track ‘Red Sex’, featuring Rakhi Singhi. “Ever since I began working with Rakhi we had talked about how fun it would be to do a version of ‘Red Sex’ with strings”, says Vessel. “The woozy melody seemed to be asking for it. Trapped as we are in a flat in the heat of a London lockdown, preparing to release a load of new original collaborations in the near future and working hard on our new solo records, it seemed like the time to do it”.

Park Hye Jin has released the title track of her upcoming EP, ‘How Can I’. The EP is out on 26 Jun.

Pozi have released new single ‘The Nightmare’. The track is taken from new EP, ‘176’, out 3 Jul through PRAH Recordings.

The Dalai Lama has announced an album of teachings and mantras set to music, to mark his 85th birthday on 6 Jul. “Music has the potential to reach many more people with the message that the real source of happiness is warm-heartedness and a concern for others”, he says. Listen to ‘Compassion’ from the album here.
