Kanye West


After several missed deadlines, Kanye West‘s new album ‘Jesus Is King’ apparently has a new release date of 25 Oct. That’s when a film about the making of the album is out in IMAX cinemas, so it would make sense. But when did anything Kanye-related make sense?

James Blunt has released new track ‘I Told You’. His new album, ‘Once Upon A Mind’, is out on 25 Oct.

Mayer Hawthorne has released new single ‘Over’. “This is my favourite song I’ve written in a long time and I’m so stoked for you to finally hear it”, says Hawthorne. “When you’re done listening, start it OVER”. See what he did there?

Caroline Polachek has released new track ‘Look At Me Now’.

Having just played their first live show for four years, The Locust have also released new music in the form of new track ‘Recyclable Body Fluids In Human Form’.

Joy Crookes has released the video for new single ‘Early’, featuring Jafaris. She begins a sold out UK tour later this month.

KO has released new track ‘I Was’, taken from upcoming mixtape ‘Drilliam Shakespeare’.



Foals have announced that they will tour the UK in April, starting at Edinburgh’s Usher Hall on 29 and hitting London’s Olympia on 2 May. The band’s new album, ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 2’, is out this week.
