Creative industries generating £9.6 million an hour for British economy
The creative industries are now worth £84.1 billion a year to the good old UK economy, and if you don't believe me, you're going to have to go to Westminster, track down that nice Ed Vaizey, intrude on whatever waffley conversation he may be having at the time, get up close and personal, and shout "LIAR" into his face. Do let me know if you do that.

According to the latest stats brag from the UK government's Department Of Media, Culture & Sport, the country's creative industries - which, for the sake of this stat, includes film, music, gaming, design, crafts and publishing - are at an all time high, having seen growth at nearly double that of the wider UK economy. It means the creative industries now generate £9.6 million an hour for Britain. I do hope Britain is grateful.

Speaking for Britain, the aforementioned culture minister Ed Vaizey said: "The creative industries are one of the UK's greatest success stories, with British musicians, artists, fashion brands and films immediately recognisable in nations across the globe. Growing at almost twice the rate of the wider economy and worth a staggering £84 billion a year, our creative industries are well and truly thriving and we are determined to ensure its continued growth and success".

If you think all this growth and success is just a temporary blip, the government would like you to remember that "the next instalment of 'Poldark'; the new album from Radiohead; the film adaptation of Roald Dahl's 'The BFG'; and the release of 'Lego Marvel's Avengers'", all of which are going to continue this marvellous creative trend.

Anyway, I don't know what all you creative types are doing still lingering here reading this nonsense, you've got another £4.9 million to generate to meet this hour's target, so back to work everybody. Unless you're heading off to Westminster to shout "LIAR" in Vaizey's face. I'll hold the fort while you do that.

Ninja Tune launches new offices in Germany and France
Ninja Tune has announced the expansion of its international department, with new staff hired in Germany and France.

Over in Berlin, the label will shack up with Domino and Mute, who have shared office space in the city since 2010. Max Brudi, who has acted as Product Manager for Domino and Mute there since 2011, will now become Label Manager for Ninja Tune and Mute.

The new French office in Paris also gets its own Label Manager, in the shape of Zineb Benomar, who will continue to do the same for the French division of Cooking Vinyl, as she has since 2014. She also co-manages XL-signed duo Ibeyi.

Back in Ninja's UK office, Anna-Mari Trlin joins as assistant to International Manager Nicky Wain, who tells CMU: "Germany and France are very important territories for us, we spend a lot of time working with our partners there to set up the best campaigns for our artists. Having our own people on the ground in Paris and Berlin will be an important step in improving that. Mute and Domino have been very welcoming, allowing us to come into their Berlin operation - it feels like a co-operation of likeminded labels. And in Max Brudi we feel like we've got a great label representative to move the label forward in Germany".

As for the French market, Wain continues: "Zineb Benomar came highly recommended to us by a number of colleagues and her knowledge and experience is already proving to be a great asset to Ninja Tune as we strive to build bigger and bigger campaigns within France".

Cür Music launches bid for the streaming middle market
We need a better range of streaming services, that's what I said in the midst of my customary "digital year ahead" gubbins last month, so let's see if this one works out.

Long-time-in-development digital service Cür Music went live in the US this week, aiming to sit between the personalised radio platforms of the Pandora kind and the fully on-demand streaming set ups like Spotify.

It's mainly about playlists and radio-style channels, but with the option to store eight tracks in a snug little corner of the platform that are available at anytime on demand. That bit's called your 'Cür8' profile (yeah, they really went there). Users can change their eight tracks daily, and there's some sharing and messaging widgets thrown in too.

Pricing wise, there is a $2.99 and a $6.99 option, so very much trying to fill the gap between freemium and the current $10 premium.

Though, just like past efforts to do just that, the new service may find it hard to sign up subscribers when Spotify and YouTube are still pumping out the hits on demand for free, even with the promise of messaging, curation and offline listening tools. True, Spotify freemium has a handful of ads and slightly limited mobile functionality, but its free service is still pretty close to what Cür Music is offering.

Still, anything playing with the format is good. And, as Music Ally notes, the majors are all on board, with filings in the US confirming licensing deals with Universal, Sony and Warner, with all the usual advances, guarantees and equity flim flam.

Global starts pushing its Xtra functionality app
Global Radio has started pushing a new app it has built around its Capital Xtra brand, which soft-launched late last year and which the broadcaster reckons is "a completely new listening experience".

The Capital Xtra app provides access to the classic radio station, but with added interactivity, in that you can skip the current song playing and move onto the next one. Users can also see upcoming tracks and skip through them too. DJs can also direct listeners to tap the app during links for more information on whatever is being discussed. So, basically, the normal radio service is there, but users can step in and opt for more of a Pandora experience, albeit based around the station's playlist.

The functionality is pretty limited by on-demand streaming standards, of course, and the choice of music isn't personalised like on a Pandora type platform. But still, it's an interesting play on the traditional radio experience, and presumably is pitching itself at the kind of mainstream consumers who tune in to conventional radio, many of whom are yet to really embrace any kind of streaming service, and who are often put off by too much choice.

While the interactive app is only currently available for Global's more youth-focused Capital Xtra, it's understood similar services will be launched around the broadcaster's other radio brands in due course.

Says Global's digital man James Hickman: "This app is the first of its kind to combine the best of radio with the best of streaming. It marks a new way of listening and is ideal for people who want a degree of control without losing the curation and news and talk content from their favourite radio brand. Capital Xtra will bring radio to a younger audience by giving them the best of radio and the best of streaming in one app".

Meanwhile Global boss Ashley Tabor added: "We wanted to do something that's never been done before, to create a product that was true to the values and strengths of radio, but also giving users the control they expect in a streaming world. James and his team have done an outstanding job on My Capital Xtra".

Miley Cyrus to start in Woody Allen's Amazon Prime series
Amazon Prime Video has been lagging behind Netflix in the race to pull in subscribers with original content. I watched the first episode of Amazon's flagship Philip K Dick adaptation 'The Man In The High Castle' the other night. The acting was a bit shoddy and, despite the strong premise, it wasn't particularly gripping. If someone could let me know if it's worth persevering with, that would be really great. OK, thanks.

Oh, actually, I did start writing this for another reason, didn't I? Yeah, Amazon's next big move is to hire Woody Allen to direct a new series for it to exclusively stream. And this is relevant here because Miley Cyrus has been cast in it. See, you thought I wasn't going to bring this around to music, and I did. Because Miley Cyrus is a pop singer.

In an Instagram post confirming the news, she said: "Fuck yeah! Stoked to be in Woody Allens first series! I had claimed 2016 to be my year of 'chillin the fuck out' but next to my bed for a few years now has been this portrait of WA [pictured in the post] and I was looking into his eyes when I got the call to be a part of the cast and work alongside the bad a$$ Elaine May and da dude himself! 1960zzzz here I cummmmm".

If you didn't quite get that, the series is set in the 1960s and will also star Elaine May and Woody Allen himself.

Here is an artist's impression of what the filming will look like.

  Approved: Jibóia - Ankara
Jibóia, aka musician Óscar Silva, first appeared in this column in 2014, ahead of the release of his 'Balav' EP. For that release he collaborated with fellow synth manipulator Ana Miró. For his next effort, 'Masala', which is out on 8 Feb, he's teamed up with drummer Ricardo Martin.

The first single from the record, 'Ankara', features the same spinning psychedelic synths recognisable from his earlier work. However, the addition of Martin's heavy and hypnotic drumming drives Silva's sound into darker areas than before. This is music that picks you up and carries you, rather than waiting for you to follow it.

Listen to 'Ankara' here.

Colin Vearncombe dies
Colin Vearncombe, aka Black, best known for his 1987 hit 'Wonderful Life', has died following a road traffic accident earlier this month. He was 53.

Vearncombe had been placed in an induced coma after sustaining a serious head injury in the crash, near Cork Airport, on 10 Jan. Although kept in a stable condition, scans revealed that his injuries were worse than initially feared and the musician passed away in the intensive treatment unit of Cork University Hospital yesterday.

His wife Camilla and three sons said in a statement: "Colin received the best possible care from the expert and highly professional staff [at the hospital] and we are deeply grateful for everything they did".

The funeral is to be private, though details of a public memorial in Vearncombe's home city of Liverpool are set to be announced in the coming days. Black's final album, 'Blind Faith', was released last year.

Kanye West changes album title, launch event details leak
Details of a promotional event to launch Kanye West's new album and fashion line were seemingly leaked yesterday. The rapper responded by changing the name of the new record. Well, he changed it. I'm not sure it was actually a response to the leak. But you have to link things like this together to create a quick, easy-to-digest first paragraph in stories like this, don't you? Have you quickly and easily digested it? Good, then we can get on with the rest of this nonsense.

West will seemingly unveil his new fashion line and new album at a Madison Square Garden event, which will be beamed to cinemas around the world, on 11 Feb. This information appeared on a now deleted listing on the Cineworld website yesterday.

"The world premiere of Kanye West's 'Swish' album in its entirety, live from Madison Square Garden", said listing promised. "This is your chance to be part of one of the great musical events of the year. [The album is] getting a suitably spectacular unveiling in its entirety at Madison Square Garden with a performance by his visual art collaborator Vanessa Beecroft".

Given the hasty subsequent deletion of that listing, I think someone might be in trouble. It's not quite that Adele leak situation though, is it? So at least there's that. And Kanye himself didn't show any signs of being too bothered. He's still too excited about how good the album is. So excited that yesterday he changed its name to 'Waves' and added a new track to the tracklisting.

He also suggested that the record was so good, it could never be played before 2am. But that's a time when cinemas are closed. So how is that launch event screening going to work? Does that mean the whole thing is cancelled? Probably not. I'm reading far too much into a throwaway tweet. But that's how you're supposed to end things like this, isn't it? With a quick and easy-to-grasp cliffhanger that makes it all seem more dramatic than it actually is. I hope you're all feeling suitably intrigued.

The Joy Formidable explore the female gaze in new video
The Joy Formidable have released a new video, filled with clips of semi-naked men. A lead they hope others will follow.

Writing about the video in The Guardian, frontwoman Ritzy Bryan said: "We're big on making our own music videos, so last month we started collecting footage and finishing the treatment to this song. The video follows a voyeuristic heterosexual female gaze - like my own - watching men in all forms, free, relaxed, sexy and objectified. It's beautiful, provocative, occasionally pervy, sometimes just admiring of the prowess of Jimi Hendrix and his guitar, or Iggy Pop's gorgeous lack of inhibition".

"The male gaze is well represented in videos: we see plenty of female nudity, statistically more than male nudity", she continues. "What we don't see very often is men and women as equal in their nudity and sensuality, without a power struggle. It's a lot to cover in a single music video, but showing a different side of male sensuality is one part of the conversation".

Bertlesmannm, Warner Music, Deezer, more

Other notable announcements and developments today...

• BMG owner Bertelsmann has confirmed that its top man Thomas Rabe will continue to run the company for another five years. End of the world permitting, of course.

• If you're a fan of job titles like "President", but think "General Manager" is a boring old job name, well, you'll be feeling good today for Mike Easterlin, former GM and now President of the Fueled By Ramen and Roadrunner labels in the US. Craig Kallman of parent label Atlantic Records is "THRILLED" about the promotion. As are we all.

• At least some of that 100 million euros grabbed by the Deezer geezers last week is going to Golan Shaked, who has just been hired as Chief Marketing & Commercial Officer. You'd think they could spend at least 20 of those euros on buying me lunch, wouldn't you? But hey, well done Golan.

• Legendary producer Tony Visconti will keynote at this year's South By Southwest, which is a rather timely booking, given the recent death of his most famous collaborator David Bowie. The music wing of South By runs from 15-20 Mar this year.

• Neil Warnock off of the United Talent Agency, Gao Xiaosong from the Alibaba Music Group and music supervising type Mary Ramos will all keynote at this year's MIDEM conference about "where the industry is headed". Presumably Team MIDEM hope the answer is "Cannes". Let's see I guess.

• Run The Jewels have hired Cyriak to make a video for 'Meowpurrdy' from their 'Meow The Jewels' remix album. Nightmarish.

• Flying Lotus has soundtracked a short film, 'Fuckkkyouuu', which is an Official Selection at this year's Sundance Festival. You can watch in on YouTube now.

• Ash Koosha will release a new album, 'I AKA I', through Ninja Tune on 1 Apr. From it, this is 'Mudafossil'.

• She doesn't put out a lot of music that Kenzie May (a song a year is her current average), but what she has let out there is all great. And in that I am including new single 'Honey'.

• Ghostpoet will headline the first 'PRS Presents' show of the year at the collecting society's Streamtham offices on 11 Feb. More info here.

• The Tad Doyle-fronted Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth will play The Black Heart in Camden on 2 Apr.

B.o.B and Neil deGrasse Tyson battle over flat Earth theory
After rapper B.o.B spent a day insisting that the world is flat, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson responded by pointing out where he'd got some (all) of the science wrong. And that's quite a thing to happen, isn't it?

But Tyson's arguments were shot down by B.o.B himself, who quickly accused the science man and 'Cosmos' host of being a Mason, and claimed that the curvature of the Earth can only be seen in pictures released by NASA. And nowhere else. Because NASA is hiding the truth from us. That being the indisputable fact that the 'planet' is actually completely flat.

The scientist concluded his lesson by saying: "Duude - to be clear: Being five centuries regressed in your reasoning doesn't mean we all can't still like your music". In which case, he must love this. Because Tyson is now the subject of a B.o.B diss track.

But is that fair? Previously this was a battle of two men and their scientific knowledge. Then B.o.B brought rapping into it. And Neil deGrasse Tyson is not a rapper. But don't worry, he has a secret weapon. It turns out that his nephew is a rapper. So this beef can stay on a level footing. Here's 'Flat To Fact' by Tyson, featuring Neil deGrasse Tyson.
