• Abra Cadabra has released the video for new single ‘Stay’, featuring Danzey.

• Blondes will release new album ‘Warmth’ in August. It sees them move from RVNG Intl to R&S Records. “Having released on RVNG for years, we had wanted to move in the direction of releasing on a more dance music-focused label”, say the duo.

• Public Service Broadcasting have released new single, ‘People Will Also Need Coal’. “There’s a really quite savage irony to this track when viewed with the benefit of hindsight”, says band leader J Willgoose. “Of a coal board with the confidence to assure people of safe, prosperous jobs in a strong and stable industry when they were only ten years away from the largest industrial confrontation of the UK’s last 50 years and the decimation of careers, communities and livelihoods”.

• Busted are going to play the Royal Albert Hall on 17 Oct. Look, here they are dumping that information out of their faces.
