RELEASES

Disclosure have released two new tracks, ‘Ecstasy’ and ‘Tondo’. The first samples 70s soul track ‘Fantasy’ by Aquarium Dream, while the latter uses music by Cameroonian musician Eko Roosevelt.

Coldplay have released the video for ‘Champion Of The World’, from their latest album ‘Everyday Life’. “The video is about this magic power that kids have to switch off from reality and jump into their own world”, says director CloĆ© Bailly.

A new video has been released for Leonard Cohen‘s ‘Thanks For The Dance’ – taken from the musician’s posthumous album of the same name.

Richard Russell’s Everything Is Recorded will release a new album, titled ‘Friday Forever’, on 3 Apr through XL. New single, ’03:15am/Caviar’, featuring Ghostface Killah and Infinite Coles, is out now.

Hanni El Khatib has released new single ‘Stressy’. A new album is scheduled for release later this year.

Noga Erez has released new single ‘Views’, featuring Reo Cragun and Rousso. “In my verse, I tried to voice that insecurity that can lead to people faking or buying views to portray an appearance of success”, says Erez. “I wanted to relate to that feeling, not criticise. We thought it would be more interesting to have a counter perspective to mine, so we reached out to Reo and he came back with his magnifying verse about – as I understand it – how this sort of stuff comes back to haunt you in the end”.
