ARTIST NEWS

It’s World Motern Day – the annual event where prolific songwriter Matt Farley attempts to make $1 million from streaming in a single day. It’s never happened yet. Maybe 2019 is the year – listen to the best 313 of his 20,000 songs on Spotify or Apple Music (and nothing else all day, that’s how this works).

Tove Lo is back with new single ‘Glad He’s Gone’. Her fourth album, ‘Sunshine Kitty’, is set for release later this year. “We’ve all been on both sides of the break up pep talk with our friends”, she says of the inspiration for the song. “And we all know how good it feels to get your partner in crime back when they finally leave that idiot behind”.

Liam Gallagher has announced that he will play Hackney Round Chapel on 5 Jun. A couple of days later he’ll release new single ‘Shockwaves’. His second solo album, ‘Why Me? Why Not’, is due for release later this year. “It’s a better record than ‘As You Were'”, says Gallagher, comparing the new album to his solo debut. “Which is saying something, as that was epic, wasn’t it?”
