Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Films company has signed a production deal with A24 Films, the company behind ‘Uncut Gems’, ‘Lady Bird’, ‘Moonlight’ and more. Scott announced the deal on Instagram, suggesting that his next album will be accompanied by a film.



Chinese web giant NetEase confirmed this weekend that previously announced plans to spin off its music division Cloud Village are proceeding, with the proposed Initial Public Offering of Cloud Village Inc being approved by the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. The NetEase Cloud Music service could be the key winner from the recent decision by the Chinese competition regulator to force its main rival Tencent to give up most of its remaining exclusivity deals over music catalogues.



Lizzo has announced that she will release her fourth album, ‘Rumors’, on 13 Aug. Its first single is due next week.

Meet Me @ The Altar will release new EP ‘Model Citizen’ on 13 Aug. Here’s new single ‘Brighter Days (Are Before Us)’. “If our upcoming EP ‘Model Citizen’ was a movie, ‘Brighter Days’ would be the scene where everything in life is still good right before it all hits the fan”, say the band.

King Prawn guitarist Hans Deville has released new solo single ‘Dark Clouds’, featuring Frank From Blue Velvet’s Andrew J Davies. His debut album, ‘Prophecies Of The Lost’, is out this week.

Josie Proto has released new single ‘I Just Wanna Walk Home’. “Recently, I began having conversations with my family and friends about the legitimate concerns that I have for my safety walking home”, she says. “I was surprised to learn that most of the male presences in my life were not aware of the genuine fears that many women face on a daily basis. I wanted this song to address the very people that were turning their screens off to avoid accountability”.



Ariana Grande has announced that she will play five virtual shows in the Fortnite video game this weekend. More info here.

Wargasm have announced their debut headline tour dates for November. “Wargasm formed in late 2019”, say the duo. “We played two small tours and ever since then we have had to exist almost purely online. As the world reopens we are looking forward to the inevitable chaos of our own headline shows and bringing you War On The Road”. Tickets go on sale tomorrow.
