Sentric Music


E2 Music Publishing, the songs side of jazz label Edition Records, has signed an exclusive administration and collection deal with Sentric Music Group. Sentric’s Peter McCamley says: “E2 is an exciting catalogue, and we see a massive window of potential to enrich its pool of jazz talent further with creative opportunities”.



Having announced Abba’s Björn Ulvaeus as its new President last week, global collecting society grouping CISAC has confirmed the appointment of songwriter, performer, educator and entrepreneur Yvonne Chaka Chaka and leading Mexican composer Arturo Márquez as Vice Presidents.



Bob Mould has released ‘American Crisis’, the first single from his fourteenth solo album, ‘Blue Hearts’. It’s “a tale of two times”, he says. “Past time and present time. The parallels between 1984 and 2020 are a bit scary for me: telegenic, charismatic leaders, praised and propped up by extreme Evangelicals, either ignoring an epidemic (HIV/AIDS) or being outright deceitful about a pandemic (COVID-19)”. The album is out on 25 Sep through Merge.

LA Priest has released new single ‘Rubber Sky’. His new album ‘Gene’ is out tomorrow.

Oumou Sangaré has released new single ‘Djoukourou’, from her upcoming new album ‘Acoustica’ – out on 19 Jun.

Laurence Pike has released new single ‘Nero’, along with an interactive video. If interacting’s not your thing, you can also sit back and watch the YouTube version. Pike’s new album ‘Prophesy’ is out on 24 Jul.

Niji No Conquistador have released new album ‘Rainbow Gravity’. From it, this is ‘Japonijifes’.
