MBMB Publishing – the publishing arm of UK dance label Cr2 Records – has signed up to IMPEL, the organisation that negotiates direct deals in the digital domain on behalf of an assortment of independent music publishers. The firm’s Mark Brown says: “We are particularly looking forward to joining such a great group of like-minded, independent publishers in which we can collaborate … and ensure rights-holders are paid accurately and fairly”.



Music start-up Delic – which is developing collaboration tools for music-makers – has announced the appointment of Claire McAuley of Warner Chappell and Cliff Fluet of Lewis Silkin to its advisory board. Both will also take part in a panel discussion later today called ‘Independent Or Interdependence?’ – info here.



A load of sports stars, including James Haskell, Jeremy Irvine and Darren Gough, have joined together as Rig Aid to make a bid for Christmas number one. Proceeds from the single will go to the Restart Rugby charity. The track is out on 18 Dec. Here’s a trailer.

Giggs has released the video for ‘I’m Workin’, featuring Jorja Smith, from his ‘Now Or Never’ album.

Wargasm have released the video for new single ‘Rage All Over’.

Anna Straker has released new single ‘Break Up Song’. “I wrote ‘Break Up Song’ the morning after a massive argument I had with my boyfriend”, she says. “It captures the angst and fear and desperation you feel when you fight with your lover. When you’ve been with someone a long time and feelings build up and release in such an explosive way, it’s consuming. I love the dance floor energy of this heartbreak anthem”. Her new EP, ‘Growing Pains’, is out on 11 Dec.

Ragz Originale has released new track ‘OG Lullaby’.



These New Puritans have announced that they will livestream a show this Friday, to coincide with the tenth anniversary of the release of their ‘Hidden’ album. The duo will be joined by original TNP member Thomas Hein, pianist Maria Chiara Argiro and composer Henry Dagg. The show will also be broadcast from Dagg’s workshop. Tickets are available now for whatever price you choose between £1 and £1000 – with proceeds going to the Survival International charity. Here’s a sneak peak of what to expect.
