Artist management firm UROK has hired Tayla Dhyll as Head Of Audience and Sophie Lane as Senior Artist Manager. It has also promoted Chris Kasa to SVP Artist Management, Afoma Ojukwu to Artist Relations Manager, and Annabelle Scott-Curry to Creative Director. “We are THRILLED to have people within our team that share the same vision as us on the future of UROK Management”, says co-founder Sam Eldridge. “It has been an incredible year for us and the artists we represent, and we’re excited to take on new and exciting clients to continue learning and growing together as a team”.

Central Cee has released new single ‘Let Go’.

Måneskin have released new single ‘La Fine’ – a collaboration with Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello. The band’s new album, ‘Gossip’, is out on 13 Jan.

French The Kid has released new single ‘Snow’. Very much not a festive single, despite the title and timing of the release.
