Cohen reveals Twitter partnership and plenty of optimism at MIDEM keynote
Former Warner Music boss Lyor Cohen this weekend revealed an alliance between his new Google-backed company 300 and good old Twitter that will result in new A&R tools based on data pulled from the micro-blogging platform.

Although light on detail, Cohen revealed the alliance during his keynote session at MIDEM in Cannes yesterday. According to Music Ally, Cohen explained: "We're going to create A&R tools to find artists early, and help develop them. I'm really happy to be working with [Twitter]. Certainly in the modern A&R business, we all are looking for talent in various places, and certainly Twitter is a terrific place to look at talent, just like YouTube. If you wanna get signed, I think you have to engage with Twitter ... and we'll be looking and trying to develop tools that the rest of the music community can utilise. That's super-exciting for us".

While also revealing little about what exactly the tools 300 and Twitter plan to develop will do, and how widely the facility will be shared with the music industry at large, and on what terms, the digital firm also confirmed the partnership yesterday, telling The Next Web: "Music is the largest topic of conversation on Twitter, so we're really invested in building a win-win environment for fans, artists, labels, promoters and music services. This partnership is a great example because it is about helping artists and labels find each other. We're looking forward to working with Lyor's team in the coming months, and we hope they find great artists to sign as a result".

In a conversation that was heavy on the past, Cohen did also reveal some other information about what his new company 300 will do, beyond some Twitter app action. As expected, the new business is likely to be half management agency, half label, with a big focus on digital content and marketing. "The mission statement is to create a lasting reputation for high quality and artist development", Cohen said, according to Billboard. "It's a creative hub that goes beyond the creation of music and songs. It's a place where artists, managers and agents can access experience and tools so they can participate in the artist development process".

Expressing optimism about the future of the music business, and excitement for the opportunities open to music entrepreneurs in the current environment, Cohen was also upbeat about the emerging streaming market, something that has dominated debate at MIDEM this year (the conclusion elsewhere at the event seems to be Spotify good, Google bad, though not from Google-backed Cohen).

Said the 300 chief: "I certainly believe in streaming as being the future of a very healthy business and I want to be a part of that. We definitely are going to see a few bumps. But as subscription grows and it gets to a mass scale I think it will be a lovely business".

Elsewhere at MIDEM this weekend, industry leading self-publicist Will.i.am skyped live into the building to share another helping of his unique brand of utter nonsense. To conclude, the music industry should stop moaning about declining record sales and sell gadgets instead. He's made loads of cash from his Beats equity, see. And that MegaUpload thing he so avidly endorsed, well that turned out well, right? So, music industry, Will.i.am is now a tech dude and you should all follow suit. Well, we think that's what he was saying. His Skype link was really rather patchy.

BMI reaches deal to withdraw from Good Time legal battle
Singer Ally Burnett has taken collecting society BMI off her lawsuit over the Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen track 'Good Time'.

As previously reported, Burnett filed her lawsuit against Jepsen and Owl City in 2012, also naming the co-writers on the song Brian Lee and Matt Thiessen, plus publishers Universal Music, Songs Music Publishing, Schoolboy Records and all the US collecting societies, ASCAP, SESAC and BMI, as defendants. She claimed that Owl City and Jepsen's song had taken the "unique vocal motif" and hook of her song 'Ah, It's A Love Song', which she released in 2010.

While the litigation rumbles on, a deal has been struck with BMI in which it will set aside $804,156 of royalties stemming from 'Good Time' pending the outcome of the legal battle. In return the rights body won't have to fight the lawsuit itself.

Kobalt to represent Miles Davis catalogue
And now, people, another Kobalt deal announcement for your collection. And today it's the news that the firm has secured the rights to administer the entire Miles Davis publishing catalogue.

Confirming the alliance between Kobalt and Miles Davis Properties, a company operated by the Davis family estate, CEO of the former, Willard Ahdritz, told CMU: "Miles Davis is the symbol of creativity and cool. He took jazz further than anyone thought it could go, inspiring and influencing listeners and musicians for six decades. As a jazz enthusiast and sax player myself, listening to his music has been a major part of my life. So it's especially meaningful to me and an honour for everyone to be working with the Miles Davis Estate".

In a statement, the Davis family added: "It's our great pleasure to be working with a forward thinking publisher who puts the artists' needs at the forefront. We are looking forward to bringing the catalogue of Miles Davis to future generations with the help of Willard and the staff at Kobalt!"

Marco Barbieri name Century Media president
Marco Barbieri has returned to metal label Century Media to take up the position of President. Barbieri previously led the company from 1995 to 2007, before leaving to run his family's property business, as well as managing artists.

Announcing the news, Century Media co-founder Robert Kampf said: "I am extremely happy to welcome Marco Barbieri back to being president of Century Media. Marco is a passionate, music driven, creative leader who will catapult Century Media to new heights in rock and metal".

Barbieri added: "I am very happy to return to Century Media. Some of my best memories are while working here and I look forward to collaborating with staff and artists to write the next illustrious chapter".

The new appointment comes shortly after the death of the label's other co-founder Oliver Withöft, aged 49.

--------------------------------------------------

Two more appointments at Warner label services business
Warner Music's label services business ADA announced two more appointments in its New York office on Friday, with Brandon Squar being promoted to the role of SVP Digital Strategy & Revenue for ADA Worldwide responsible for, erm, digital strategy and revenue, and former Universal exec Tatia Adams Fox becoming SVP Marketing responsible for, erm, marketing.

Confirming the appointments, ADA Worldwide President Mike Jbara told CMU: "Our commitment to both operational excellence and expanding the services we offer are substantial and moving quickly. By promoting Brandon and hiring Tatia into these newly-created positions we are further strengthening two key areas of ADA's business - digital strategy and marketing - and underscoring our core goal of generating worldwide fan awareness on behalf of our artist and label partners".

Sony recruits Get In publicist for EDM team
Sony Music last week further expanded its eee-deeee-emmm team in London with the appointment of Toby Andrews to the role of Senior Manager, International Electronic Music Marketing. He joins the major from PR firm Get In, where he worked on various dance festivals and acts during a five year tenure that began with an internship.

Confirming the new hire, Sony Music's Adam Granite told Billboard: "We are thrilled Toby is joining us at Sony Music. As we continue to focus on the EDM genre, he is a perfect addition to our team. I have no doubts he will make an immediate impact with several key releases over the next few months from around Europe".

As previously reported, just over a year ago Sony forged an alliance with US dance label Ultra Music to enhance its EDM credentials, with Ultra founder Patrick Moxey becoming the major's President, Electronic Music. Also confirming Andrews' appointment, he added: "Toby is one of the best in the industry at dance marketing and his experience comes from firsthand success in breaking new and established artists. We welcome him to our team".

MAMA appoints new CEO
Following the confirmation last week that MAMA & Company co-founder Dean James was permanently departing the London based live firm, on Friday it was announced that Rory Bett had been appointed as the company's new CEO.

Bett has been with MAMA since 2008, launching first the company's brand partnerships business and then its event production agency, which are now known respectively as MAMA Brand Partnerships and MAMA Productions, having originally operated under their own brand names. Bett became Group Commercial Director for MAMA in 2012, and joined the board after a management buy out took the company back into independent ownership after three years operating as part of HMV.

Confirming Bett as the new CEO of MAMA, the company's Chairman Richard Thompson told CMU: "Under Rory's leadership I have no doubt MAMA & Company can realise its full potential. His enthusiasm is contagious which along with his depth of industry knowledge, commercial expertise plus the energy and drive he brings to the role, makes him perfectly placed to lead the business into a new era".

As previously reported, James stood down as CEO of MAMA last August somewhat suddenly.

Snoop Dogg to fight meerkats in new ad deal
Price comparison website MoneySupermarket has hired Snoop Doggy Lion, who's apparently not pocketing enough hot cash from his other brand deals, to appear in its 'epic' new series of adverts. The first MoneySnoopermarket commercial, which doesn't flog a tired, cartoonish cliché at all, is titled 'How I Roll'. This is how it rolls.

Given his plan to pitch rapstar Snoop against a CGI rodent, a fake Italian man and a wobbly droid in the ongoing comparison-site-ad-battle, MoneySupermarket's Brand Director Gareth Helm reckons Snoop's chances against, well, a CGI rodent, a fake Italian man and a wobbly droid are good, telling Marketing: "We've got tough competitors - the meerkat, the opera singer, the robot - and, as a sector, we're famous for great advertising. We've got to keep getting better, keep moving on and up".

Helm adds: "I think we're in a really good position because we own an insight that people relate to. When I look at my competitors, the meerkat is wearing out and getting a bit tired. How many meerkats can you collect? It's also a bit gimmicky".

Yes, and this isn't.

PR companies unite to form Chapel Collective
Four music PR companies - Guesty PR, Wilful Publicity, Great Northern PR and Electric Shores - have announced a new alliance, called the Chapel Collective, which will see them collaborate and share resources on certain projects.

Great Northern PR and Wilful Publicity are run by former EMI Publicity Directors Debra Geddes and William Luff respectively, while Guesty PR is the project of Live Nation's former Head Of PR Steve Guest, and Electric Shores is owned by ex Chuff Media Head Of Press Jenn Nimmo-Smith.

In a statement, they said: "We decided to form Chapel Collective as a new way of providing publicity and campaign consultancy across the music and entertainment industry. Focussing on our clients' needs we can offer a personal service through our own individual companies or expand projects to work collectively, bringing in each others' skills, experience and contacts to deliver wide-ranging campaigns".

They continued: "We want to create an umbrella company where clients can talk to us individually or together about all aspects of their publicity needs and collectively we will be able to deliver on those requirements. Chapel Collective will also be able to bring specialist partners in where required and act as consultants for clients wanting to tap into major label and promoter experience, outside of the usual channels".

More information on the Chapel Collective here.

New CEO at Slacker
North American streaming service Slacker Radio announced the appointment of a new CEO on Friday. Former Disney and Nintendo man Duncan Orrell-Jones will take over at the digital music firm on 10 Feb, replacing Jim Cady, chief exec at the business for the last eight years who will stay on as a board director.

Confirming Orrell-Jones' appointment, Cady told reporters: "I'm excited to welcome Duncan to Slacker Radio and look forward to working with him to lead the company into its next stage of growth. Slacker has built a powerful service that blends the art of human-curated radio with the science of streaming. We attracted more than 21 million new listeners in 2013, and it's an ideal time to bring in someone of Duncan's calibre to take Slacker's business to the next level".

Meanwhile Orrell-Jones told Billboard: "Jim has built an amazing foundation. The product is there. The engagement is growing. We have a number of core partnerships for distribution in place. Now, it's building on that and executing".

--------------------------------------------------

Topspin redundancies mark strategy shift
Direct-to-fan firm Topspin's previously reported redundancies last week saw fourteen staff lose their jobs, it has been confirmed. This amounted to just under half of its total staff. A spokesperson told Billboard that this was due to a shift in strategy towards becoming a technology platform, rather than providing bespoke services direct to artists.

Meanwhile former Topspin exec Gary Brotman told the trade mag: "They're focusing on their platform, their technology and their data. That was the idea from the beginning, and going back to that makes sense because it's Topspin's strong suit. No one doubts that the potential for direct-to-fan business is there. But what's the right recipe? Everyone's tinkering with the formula in their own way. Topspin is doing this by refocusing on their core mission".

Topspin's new ArtistLink platform was launched last year, and is now being used by companies like Spotify and Beats Music, and others, to provide merchandise sell-through for artists.

First Transmitter live show to go live today
The new music channel on YouTube, Transmitter - that original content venture involving Love Live and the BPI - will today launch its first live-streamed show, 'Live@5', which will go live at six o'clock tonight. No not really, it'll appear at five o'clock, people. Five PM.

The weekly YouTube-based show will become the regular place where the UK Streaming Chart is revealed. It'll be fronted by James Hill, who said this to us: "I'm so excited to be part of 'Live@5', I absolutely cannot wait to get started. It feels like there's nothing really like this show at the moment, so it's a great excuse to have fun and see what happens. Secretly, I'm hoping it's gonna be as out of control and chaotic as possible... Like 'Top Of The Pops' crossed with a slightly over capacity house party the organisers regret".

Yeah, a 'Top Of The Pops' style party which the organisers learn to regret isn't necessarily something to aim for in the current climate.

  Approved: Young Turks x Dazed Visionaries
What's not to love? The xx, Grimes, FKA Twigs, Sampha and Caroline Polachek of Chairlift, all in Tulum Mexico, all as part of a trip by their shared label Young Turks, the focal point of Dazed Digital's latest series of 'Visionaries' specials.

Featuring Twigs singing her track 'Hide' amid some Mayan ruins (as you do), and Polachek giving her best a capella Handel aria whilst standing in a deep, clear mini-lake in the gloom, and climaxing in an ensemble wrap party with all the crew, each clip gives a glimpse into Team YTs' family trip to Tulum, Mexico last New Year.

Like most things Young Turks do, it's pitched beautifully, and stuns with its visuals and the slick and slightly alien clarity of one of the most 'aesthetics'-driven labels trading at the moment. Discover all the clips, interviews and performances at this link, or simply start with Twigs midst the ruins here.

Lana Del Rey whispers of "wrong and exquisite" new LP
Last week, shrinking pop violet Lana Del Rey gave hints as to what her new LP, 'Ultraviolence', will be like when it's released. Mostly, it's simply "wrong". So "wrong" it's almost right. Cool. Oh, and it's all done, and "beautiful" to boot.

Confirming via a Twitter Q&A with fans that it's all ready to go, the 'Tropico' singer said: "The record is finished and it's beautiful. And don't worry you will love 'Ultra' - it's so wrong and exquisite".

She went on: "It is absolutely gorgeous - darker then the first - so dark it's almost unlistenable and wrong. But I love it".

--------------------------------------------------

Burial shows his face
All the (blogging) world was abuzz last Friday because a man took a photo of his face and put it online, and wrote a note to go with it. Of course, that man was Burial, aka bass producer Will Bevan, who was 'faceless' until now (apart from that one grainy photo in the back of a car), and so the photo was something of a surprise. As was the slightly soppy message that accompanied it.

And so on to the note, in which Bevan thanks his friends and family, does "shout outs" to the underground scene, and swears he'll put out some "new tunes", and old ones, in due course. Provided he doesn't get too caught up playing video game 'Dark Souls 2', once that's out.

Here is the note:

Hi this is Will, I just want to say thank you to anyone out there who liked my Burial tunes and supported me over the years. It's really appreciated. Massive thank you anyone who got my records and all producers, DJs, radio stations, labels, shops, writers and journalists... anyone who played my tunes, gave them a listen, or helped me out with it, made me want to keep going with it. Also shout out anyone who sent me tunes, messages, anyone I met along the way and a big shout out to anyone who supports or does independent and underground music.

I want to do some new tunes this year to send to my boss Steve and the label because they've been going ten years now and have stuck by me. Hopefully by the end of most years I have done some tunes that are decent enough to release. But 'Dark Souls 2' is on the horizon soon so I'm not sure if I will have many new tunes for a while because I need to play that game a lot. But I'm going to try to get some new tunes together before it comes out.

Also I want to go and find some old tunes I did that still sound alright and never came out... It would be nice to finally put some of them out on vinyl one day. Also I want to tell my mum, my dad, my brothers and my sister that I love them to bits. Big shout out to the UK and everywhere else. Cheers and respect to everyone and anyone... be safe and take care

Rita Ora writes cool song with Calvin Harris
Rita Ora revealed last week that she's made a track featuring beats and identikit synths by her hit-making DJ beaux and an "incredible talent", Calvin Harris. The single, which will feature on her TBA second LP, is titled 'I Will Never Let You Down', and is, Rita says, one of the coolest songs she's ever heard, in her mind.

Giving a fascinating insight into that very mind's mechanics via BBC Radio 1, Ora said of writing the track: "Honestly, it was so natural. I wouldn't have done it if it didn't make any sense. We were sitting at home, he started humming and then I started humming and then we hummed together".

"I actually think it's one of the coolest songs I've ever heard, in my mind", she went on to add.

New Prince track goes live
Put down your pens, unplug your phones, close your blinds, postpone that meeting, call your mother, don that new hat, brew a particularly strong cup of tea and have your lawyers on stand-by. Yes, a new Prince track just went live.

Well, technically a new track has just gone live from Prince & 3RDEYEGIRL, the latter bit of the equation being guitarist Donna Grantis, bassist Ida Nielsen and drummer Hannah Ford Welton. The track is called 'PRETZELBODYLOGIC' and is a taster for the new P&3EG long player 'PLECTRUMELECTRUM'.

Generous as ever, Prince is letting you stream a whole two minutes of the track on YouTube, though for the real deal you need to head over to iTunes and part with some pennies.

As previously reported, later today Prince will address the nation from Lianne La Havas's lounge to announce some UK gigs. Hurrah.

--------------------------------------------------

Jessica Lea Mayfield shares single, talks new LP
Country-musician-it's-fine-to-like-even-if-you-think-country-music-sucks Jessica Lee Mayfield has premiered a new song from her forthcoming new LP, 'Make My Head Sing'.

The latter, released 14 Apr, trails 2011's 'Tell Me', and is, says Mayfield, her take on a good old fashioned rock n roll album. More accurately, she actually says: "Bands are so big these days - I wanted to get in the studio and make a rock record and hear real guitar tones and something heavy".

Get sick listening to the single ('sick' because Jessica says her guitar amps were "so loud when we recorded this that it made me feel nauseous"), which is titled 'Oblivious', now c/o Rolling Stone.

X-Factor bosses veto covers of chart-topping rockers
Chart topping (as of yesterday) rockers You Me At Six have claimed that 'X-Factor' producers have vetoed contestants on the talent tosh-fest from covering their songs, on account of them not be famous enough.

The band's frontman Josh Franceschi told the Daily Star last week that he has struck up a friendship with former 'X' champion James Arthur as a result of them both having the same vocal coach (yeah, Arthur's voice has been coached don't you know, though we don't know whether that's in singing).

Said Franceschi: "Me and our drummer Dan [Flint] were out with James and some other 'X-Factor' singers one night. A few of them are You Me At Six fans too. They'd really wanted to do one of our songs. However, the producers won't allow rock songs to be performed unless it's by famous bands like AC/DC".

Which is a shame. If those 'X-Factor' bosses weren't so strict, they could have had another Matt Cardle on their books.
