Video coming to Spotify this week
In an attempt to stop people constantly asking "when exactly are you going to launch all that stuff you announced last May in a bid to pre-empt Apple Music", Spotify will apparently launch one of the things it announced last May in a bid to pre-empt Apple Music this very week. That's right you guys, video is coming to the streaming service. And just in time for February!

According to the Wall Street Journal, Android users this week, followed by iOS addicts next week, will be able to tap their Spotify apps for some video good times. Though only in the US, UK, Germany and Sweden. Because Spotify famously hates Norwegians. And everyone who isn't American, British, German or Swedish. But mainly Norwegians.

The company has actually been testing the video function with a small proportion of its users for several months now. With mainly short videos to share, it has apparently found that the best way to deliver them is in small packages with titles like 'News Of The Week' and 'Laughs At Lunch'. So a bit like the in-house audio playlists it already offers.

"We are at the end of a journey of testing", VP Product Shiva Rajaraman told the WSJ. "We are going out effectively as planned. Our goal was largely to get a wide breadth of content and experiment and test".

Rajaraman admitted that convincing Spotify users to sit and look at an app they usually have running in the background could be an uphill struggle. "Obviously our primary user is a music fan", he said. "And they are not necessarily leaning in and looking into the app. So there are no particular recipes for how to get this right".

Which basically means it's taken Team Spotify almost nine months to launch this thing, it's not really changed in that time, and they don't know how or if it's going to work. Great stuff.

SFX settles with its other alleged founders
There was a time when you could brag about being one of the people behind the buzzy, booming, bullish EDM powerhouse that was SFX. Though as bankers and consultants busy themselves trying to work out how to rescue the company - with its wobbly financials, tanked share price and mountain of debt - perhaps that's no longer so much something to put at the top of your brag list.

So comes the news that SFX founder Robert FX Silleman has settled a legal battle with three other men who claimed that they too were behind the dance music company, but were frozen out of the business just as it was gaining momentum and value.

As previously reported, Paolo Moreno, Lawrence Vavra and Gabriel Moreno claimed that Sillerman approached them in early 2012 to discuss his then fledgling plans for an electronic music-focussed company. They then alleged that, because he had no experience in that side of the business, Sillerman used the three men's expertise to indentify and buy many of the new firm's initial acquisitions.

The lawsuit then claimed that the three men should have received shares in the business in return for their efforts which, while worth little now, could have netted them over $100 million when SFX floated on the NASDAQ stock exchange in 2013.

Said the legal papers filed in early 2014: "Had they known that Sillerman's true intentions were to use plaintiffs' strategy, information, connections and access for his own gain, without granting plaintiffs any significant ownership interest in the venture, plaintiffs would not have entered into any agreement with Sillerman, and would not have undertaken to execute on the strategy for the benefit of SFX".

For its part, SFX insisted that the claims were "baseless" from the off, with Sillerman attempting to secure a summary judgement in his favour. Last summer a judge ruled that the claimants had provided sufficient evidence - in particular emails between Sillerman and Paolo Moreno - for the case to proceed to full trial.

That won't now happen. Papers filed with the court on 22 Jan confirm that all parties have now settled the dispute. Terms are obviously not known, but the court papers read: "Plaintiffs Paolo Moreno, Gabriel Moreno and Lawrence Vavra and defendants SFX Entertainment Inc and Robert FX Sillerman herby jointly notify the court that the parties have signed a settlement agreement to resolve this matter in its entirety".

So, a little bit of good news for SFX HQ, while those bankers and consultants keep digging for a beats-heavy business turnaround strategy.

Hassle to work with Kobalt on Lonely The Brave album
Hassle Records has announced it will work with Kobalt Label Services on the release of the next album from Lonely The Brave. Kobalt will provide distribution, marketing, digital and sync services to the indie label around the new release.

Confirming that very fact, KLS MD for the UK and Europe, Vincent Clery-Melin, told reporters: "We're very excited to be partnering with Hassle for this brilliant band's forthcoming record. Wez and the guys at Hassle are some of the smartest people in the independent sector, and their music taste and integrity are impeccable, whilst Lonely The Brave are one of the most promising and fast-growing rock bands in the country".

The there mentioned Wez Westley, co-owner of Hassle and sister record company Full Time Hobby, added: "We had a lot of interest from many companies in partnering up with us on Lonely The Brave. Kobalt were the most proactive in terms of ideas and approach on a worldwide basis with the band. We're interested in continuing to develop a longterm international rock band that has longevity, something that is sadly lacking in today's music industry. Kobalt totally gets that. We have also known many of the staff there for a long time and we know how good these people are at their jobs".

After nearly two decades of drinking Coca-Cola, Avicii's finally been asked to produce an ad jingle
Avicii likes "working with big brands". Especially ones he can "relate to". Which means there's a double win with his latest hook up with Coca-Cola, because that's a pretty big brand, and he's been drinking the stuff on a regular basis now for nineteen years, so has a genuine and personal insight into the drink's overarching ethos. As a marketing idiot might put it. Basically, it's like Taylor Swift's relationship with Diet Coke, but in reverse.

His latest tie up with the brand sees him work on an original track to promote the drink brand's new One Brand campaign, which brings all of its Coca-Cola-branded brands under one brand-led branding brand (I have literally no idea what any of this means).

Speaking to Music Week, the producer said: "Working with Coke has been super easy for me. I've been drinking Coke since I was seven, and I drink a lot of Coke already, so it was very easy to do. We've also been working together for a long time now. I think we started working together on their energy drink called Burn and I've been doing a lot of Burn things for some time. I've done a lot of Coke things, but this is the first major campaign I'm doing with them, so it's really cool".

Yeah, there's nothing cooler than producing a cheesy jingle for a blue chip FMCG brand. And this one features vocals from up-and-coming singer Conrad Sewell, who is signed to Lyor Cohen's 300 Entertainment. You can hear a little bit of it here.

Japanese brands gain far less from boyband endorsements compared to girl groups, research finds
It may well have been their many lucrative brand partnerships that ultimately kept Japanese boyband SMAP together earlier this month, but new research reckons that male acts in the country provide a less good return on investment for brands than girl groups.

Endorsing products has long been par for the course for pop groups in Japan, and it's an important part of the business for all the big acts. Though new research from Tokyo's Custom Products Research reckons that girl groups can deliver a bigger share price boost to companies they endorse than boy bands, based on brand deal and share price data from 2015.

According to the Financial Times, the research calculated that SMAP contributed to a 17% share price increase last year for one of its endorsees, Seven & I Holdings, which ranked them thirteen in a list of 25 acts that provide the best value for brands. However, they were a long way off the number one act, AKB48, who apparently helped boost shares by up to 136%.

Not sure quite how much other factors were taken into account, but still, if SMAP do decide to call it quits, their current brand partners should probably call in the girl groups.

James Davies joins Six07 Press
Six07 Press has appointed James Davies as its new Senior Press Consultant. Davies joins from marketing and PR agency Embrace, where he was PR Manager. He has previously worked for ZTT Records, Sony Music, Polydor, MBC PR and The Outside Organisation.

Company founder Ritu Morton says: "We are hugely excited to welcome James to Six07. He is a hugely experienced PR, with a very focused and gentle approach. We think he is going to bring a lot to the company".

"I am THRILLED to be joining Ritu and the Six07 team", adds Davies. "I've long admired their work and look forward to a long and fruitful partnership".

Among the acts Davies will work with are Public Service Broadcasting, Lissie, Lindi Ortega, William Fitzsimmons and Radical Face.

  Approved: Colour
Colour released their debut single, 'Strangers', last year. Now, like they're trying to build some sort of momentum or something, they're back again with another one. When will it stop? Not soon, I hope. Because, see, Colour are a very good band indeed. That's basically what I am trying to tell you in an overly wordy way here. I hope that is clear.

That new single I mentioned, 'Nowhere', is sixteen seconds short of four minute's worth of musical joy that would sit comfortably among your Everything Everything and Foals CDs. If CDs were still a thing you bought. Are they? I don't know. I've not met you so don't know about your music format preferences.

Anyway, 'Nowhere' has got some great guitar work on it, of the sort that makes you think, "that's clever, and also fun". You would probably enjoy singing along with it too, if you were to learn the words and weren't too inhibited. But I've not met you, so can't comment on your word learning abilities or you inhibitions.

'Nowhere', by the way, is out on 19 Feb. Listen to it here.

Gary Barlow rallies 80s popstars for Eddie The Eagle movie soundtrack
Gary Barlow has curated a compilation of new music by 80s popstars to accompany a new film about former ski jumper Michael 'Eddie The Eagle' Edwards. I'll let that sentence sink in for a moment.

'Eddie The Eagle' tells the life story of British Olympian Edwards, who became famous for coming last in both the 70m and 90m ski jumping categories at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Canada.

Barlow's soundtrack album features new songs written and performed by artists including, Holly Johnson, Marc Almond, Go West, Midge Ure, Heaven 17, Erasure's Andy Bell and more. The proportion of women on the album is a bit like Barlow's old tax bills, in that you'd think there'd be a certain amount, but actually there's only Kim Wilde. The record closes with a duet from the film's stars - Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman - titled 'Thrill Me', written by Barlow and OMD's Andy McCluskey. How thrilling.

The Take That star's involvement in the project dates back to a phone call from film producer Matthew Vaughn in late 2014. Barlow says: "He was raving about the next movie he was going to make... the life story of Eddie Edwards. When he started reeling off about the script, the actors and, best of all, that he wanted all the music to be faithful to the original decade of the story, the 1980s, I knew I had to be involved. Then after having seen the film I was even more excited".

"I started to think about how incredible it would be to make a whole album of brand new songs, with a cast of the legends who started their career in, and defined, the 1980s", continues Barlow. "Not a pastiche record, but a contemporary record of who all those artists are now, while still keeping the trademark style for which they originally became known around the world. 'It's going to be like an iconic super group! All on one soundtrack, all on one album', I said".

On making the record, he adds: "The best part for me was when the tracks started to come in. My email would ping and it would be a demo from Marc Almond! Then a question about a lyric from Holly Johnson! A mix query from Kim Wilde! It was totally mind blowing for me to be in this position and I feel so lucky to have experienced it all. A year on and I'm looking back at one of the most enjoyable and collaborative times in my whole career. Anyone who loves the 80s, or any of these artists involved, are in for an hour of incredible music".

Here you go then, the tracklisting for 'Fly (Songs Inspired By The Film Eddie The Eagle)', which is out on 18 Mar, two weeks ahead of the film itself:

1. Holly Johnson - Ascension
2. Howard Jones - Eagle Will Fly Again
3. Marc Almond - Out Of The Sky
4. Tony Hadley - Moment
5. Midge Ure - Touching Hearts and Skies
6. Nik Kershaw - The Sky's The Limit
7. ABC - Living Inside My Heart
8. Kim Wilde - Without Your Love
9. Andy Bell - Fly
10. Go West - Determination
11. Heaven 17- Pray
12. Paul Young - People Like You
13. Taron Egerton & Hugh Jackman - Thrill Me

The Earth is flat, claims B.o.B
Following on from various conspiracy theories he has discussed on social media recently, US rapper B.o.B spent all of yesterday trying to convince his followers that the Earth is flat.

He pointed out the lack of a visible curve on the horizon in photographs. He pointed to time-lapse photos of stars. He pointed out that it would be much windier on the ground if the planet was actually spinning around really fast. And he asked why the horizon is always at eye level regardless of how high up you travel.

"I was on a plane the SAME time the Red Bull jump happened", he explained. "The pilot told us to look out the window - five miles to the left was the balloon. We were flying at the SAME altitude as the guy who did the red bull jump... NO curve... even though their footage shows otherwise".

He added that detractors had failed to do their research, were just regurgitating information that they had been "force fed", and were denying physics. Tired of people not doing the research, he then posted it for them, venturing into 'faked moon landings' territory at one stage too.

As attention for his campaign grew, this morning he criticised the way it was being reported in the media. "They want me to be a 'good little rapper' and sing and dance and don't question things", he wrote. "I'm going up against the greatest liars in history. You've been tremendously deceived. No I'm not crazy. Yes I'm feeling fine. No I'm not doing anything stronger than weed. Am I doing this to promote my music? No".
