By | Published on Wednesday 3 June 2020



Bandcamp has anounced a new annual event on 19 Jun, which will see it donate 100% of profits that day to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The date is the anniversary of the emancipation of the last African American slaves in the US in 1865.



YG has released new track ‘FTP’ – an acronym for ‘fuck the police’ – amid ongoing protests following the murder of George Floyd.

Tones & I has released new single ‘Ur So Fucking Cool’. “I wrote this song after I went to a party and everyone there thought they were the coolest thing ever and I just thought ‘this is shit, I’m leaving'”, she says.

K-Trap has released new single ‘Private Snap’.

Devin Townsend has released an album of guitar improvisations, offering it up as “background music that hopefully is calming amidst this chaotic period”.

Maddox Jones has released new single ‘Headspace’, the title track from his debut solo EP, which is out next month. “It’s a song that kept me company in the dead of night when I was used to sleeping next to somebody and found myself alone”, he says. “It can force you to take a proper look at yourself when you only have yourself for company. I wonder if maybe lots of people might be feeling a bit like this right now if they’re isolating alone in this pandemic”.

Scandal have released new single ‘Living In The City’, complete with a video shot remotely by the band’s members in their homes. “I never once thought when I wrote this song that I would be releasing it in times like these”, says bassist Tomomi. “But now we have all been staying home, I feel like people can listen to it through a completely new lens”.
