New boss at RCA UK as Sony Music completes senior management restructure
Sony Music UK has allied one of its acquisitions from earlier this year, the Ministry Of Sound Recordings label, with its RCA frontline label operation, promoting the former's MD David Dollimore to the new role of President of RCA/MoS Recordings. The major says that the "partnering of the two labels is an exciting strategic development", and who are we to question the strategic excitement caused by a restructure?

The two constituent units will continue to have their own MDs reporting into Dollimore, with his colleague at the Ministry label Dipesh Parmar becoming MD there, while RCA UK General Manager Neil Hughes is also promoted into an MD role.

The rejig also sees the departure of previous RCA UK boss Colin Barlow. His exiting comes just over a month after former Columbia UK chiefs Alison Donald and Mark Terry also left the major, which constitutes quite an overhaul at the top of Sony's UK record company on the watch of overall CEO Jason Iley. His former Universal Music colleague Ferdy Unger-Hamilton is now heading up Columbia UK.

Confirming the latest restructure, Iley said: "The coming together of these two exceptional labels is incredibly exciting for Sony Music UK - two powerhouse labels with a phenomenal strike rate led by three of the best execs in the business".

But it was Dollimore who got to be THRILLED about the whole thing. "It's an honour to be joining the Sony family and leading the incredible teams at RCA and Ministry Of Sound Recordings into the next era for the labels", he said. "It is a privilege to be working for an industry leader like Jason at this pivotal time. It is really exciting to be a major part of his vision for the new landscape of Sony. I'm THRILLED Dipesh will be taking over the role of MD of Ministry Of Sound Recordings. Over the last decade we have grown a business that we are both very proud of. I am also looking forward to working closely with Neil, who has an outstanding pedigree across the industry".

Dollimore having used up the THRILLED quota, Iley went with DELIGHTED as he expanded on his new appointments. "I'm DELIGHTED David is taking up this new role as President of RCA UK and Ministry Of Sound Recordings. He is one of the most dynamic and innovative A&R executives in the business whose track record speaks for itself. Dave is the future. Dipesh is also an incredible executive who has helped Ministry become the driving force it is today and I'm excited to see him take the label forward here at Sony Music. It's also a thoroughly well deserved promotion for Neil whose relationships with the RCA artists are second to none. He has been invaluable at RCA in recent years".

Music industry writes open letter to Donald Trump - piracy and safe harbours are the focus
The National Music Publishers Association having got its wish list in to President-Elect Donald Trump super quick, the wider American music industry has now followed suit.

On this open letter, the NMPA is joined by pretty much every other trade body and organisation representing the US music industry, from the Church Music Publishers' Association to the Rhythm & Blues Foundation and The Living Legends Foundation, and some you'll have already heard of before today.

Noting Trump's scheduled meeting with the major tech firms, the letter bigs up the contribution of music to the US economy and acknowledges the role of some technology firms in helping evolve and expand all that for the digital age. But - oh yes, there's a but - don't forget the 'value grab'. Whatever you do Donny, do not forget the value grab. Which, by the way, is American for the 'value gap'.

"Many in the technology and corporate community should be commended for doing their part to help value creators and their content", the music groups write. "Some have developed systems to promote a healthy market for music and deter theft. However, much more needs to be done. Search engines, user-upload content platforms, hosting companies, and domain name registrars and registries should follow others' example to effectively stop theft and assure fair payment".

So, do more to combat piracy tech-heads. Meanwhile, stop it with the value grab will you? "There is a massive 'value grab'", the letter continues. "As some of these corporations weaken intellectual property rights for America's creators by exploiting legal loopholes never intended for them - perversely abusing US law to underpay music creators, thus harming one of America's economic and job engines".

It concludes: "Surely the world's most sophisticated technology corporations can do better - by helping to prevent illegal access and paying fair market value for music with prices set by or based on the free market".

Surely so. The legal loopholes being exploited, of course, are the safe harbours in the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which the music industry would like reformed so that the likes of YouTube no longer get the protection that allows them to operate an opt-out rather than opt-in streaming service.

The letter concludes: "We hope you will lead the effort to assure American creativity is encouraged, invested in, protected and fairly compensated in a manner that carries out the exclusive rights guaranteed in the constitution to those who, with the genius of their mind, form the cultural identity of our great nation".

Too right. Let's make American great again!

Robbie Williams partners with Ticketmaster and Shazam on interactive ticket
Having spectacularly and unapologetically shunned Ticketmaster and everything it stands for - by getting right into bed with Amazon's new ticketing service, which has exclusive rights to tickets for his intimate show at St John At Hackney Church tonight - Robbie Williams has now bed-hopped right back into the arms of Live Nation's ticketing powerhouse. And all it took was a little interactivity. Simple.

This may not have been the exact sequence of events, but Williams is definitely partnering with Ticketmaster on "the world's first interactive ticket". Which is a bold claim. I mean, just holding a ticket in your hand is quite interactive. But basically, Ticketmaster has taken the Collector Ticket product it has developed - a credit-card sized ticket on a lanyard that fans can, well, collect - and has thrown in a bit of Shazam integration so that fans can also unlock some digital content by scanning the same credit-card sized ticket with their phone.

"Ticketmaster is partnering with Shazam, one of the world's most popular apps, to develop a truly immersive and interactive Collector Ticket", says the ticketing firm. And yes, this is basically just a glorified QR code promotion, and yes they did use the "immersive" word in that quote there, but I've been banging on about artists selling exclusive digital content to fans at concerts for years now, so hey, well done on doing just that.

"Robbie Williams is one of the UK's most successful and innovative performing artists", says Ticketmaster's VP Artist Services Sam Isles. "His 2017 'Heavy Entertainment Show' tour promises to be his most inventive yet, and the interactive Collector Ticket is a perfect addition to that. It represents a great way for fans to get closer to the artist and enjoy owning a concert ticket like never before".

Snapchat has helped make QR codes a thing again, of course. And look, elsewhere in Shazam news, it's just announced a tie-up with Snapchat. "This partnership will make it possible for users to Shazam from within Snapchat by pressing and holding on the Snapchat camera screen when music is playing nearby", says the official announcement. Confirming "to Shazam" is now a verb. Thanks for that.

Neil Young's Pono planning move into high quality streaming
Neil Young has said that his Pono download platform is planning to relaunch as a high quality audio streaming service. Once again, getting in on the action in a super timely manner.

As I'm sure you'll all remember, Young first announced his Pono digital music player back in 2013, launching it a year later and raising $6 million on Kickstarter. Specially designed not to comfortably fit into any pocket, the player offers the ability to play music at a quality beyond the range of human perception.

In order to pretend you could hear the difference between this and any other digital music player, you had to buy high quality digital albums from Pono's own download store for two or three times the price of the same title on iTunes. All of this was powered by Omnifone, which went out of business earlier this year, suggesting that this wasn't quite the cash cow Young had hoped. Omnifone's downfall also took the Pono store offline.

But every disaster is an opportunity, so the Pono company is using this one as a chance to have a rethink. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Young now says that the company is "pushing towards getting a presence in phones". This will require quite a lot of pushing - very few phones are currently equipped with the technology to play audio above CD quality, on account of that whole 'human perception' thing.

Young also says that Pono is working with a company in Singapore on technology to "maintain our quality level when we go to streaming".

High quality streaming services already exist, of course. Tidal probably has the best known offering, while there's also Deezer Elite, which is currently only available for Sonos customers. Largely these have shown that there's not much of a market for more expensive, high quality streaming services. And they will presumably eventually be put out of business as all streaming services naturally improve sound quality. But I'm sure everyone at Pono has considered all that and come up with a great plan.

  Approved 2016: Anna Meredith
Every day this week in the CMU Approved slot, we'll be looking at one of our five favourite artists of 2016. Today, Anna Meredith.

Anna Meredith first caught our attention back in 2012. This year, she finally released her debut album 'Varmints', a record that continues to surprise and enthral with each listen even after nine months of me playing it to death.

Already a well regarded classical composer, Meredith's move into the pop territory came out of a desire to break out of the constraints of classical music. "I don't want to write music that people are enduring just to get to the Elgar in the second half", she told The Guardian earlier this year.

Her coming to mainstream music from such a different direction than is the norm is in no small part what makes her music so interesting. Much of 'Varmints' didn't make sense to me until I saw it performed live. Being able to see the physical arrangement of instruments felt like flicking a switch. When I was a teenager, having a second guitarist was considered a bit 'out there' for a band. With a cellist and tuba player in place of a bassist, it feels like there are no rules now.

The construction of the music also has a different feel to that of your average indie band. "Pacing is a physical thing", she said, after winning the Scottish Album Of The Year Award in June. "I can feel when stuff has to happen in a track".

"I knew I wanted 'Varmints' to end privately but start confidently, have moments of privacy and moments of power and build" she added. "I love writing a build - my friends talk about 'the Meredith Build'! I love the feeling of 'get on board, we're building up now!' Even if you're dancing at a club, there's an amazing transparency to a build. When somebody is creating anticipation, it's a very communal experience and I don't like hiding those structures".

That technique, and its affect on an audience, was particularly apparent when she performed at her label Moshi Moshi's excellent By The Sea festival in October. Each new build in a track felt like a wave, bringing in an ever larger crowd of people seemingly new to her music for the most part.

Closing with the euphoric 'The Vapours', it felt like witnessing an important moment in her career - certainly there was more discussion of what people had just seen after her set than for any other I remember over that weekend.

Anticipation for an album, especially several years worth of anticipation, can be the death of it when it finally arrives. But with 'Varmints' and her performances over the course of this year, Anna Meredith has maintained and built upon the excitement of hearing her music for the first time.

Watch the video for 'The Vapours' here.

Lupe Fiasco cancels delayed album releases over anti-Semitism claims
Lupe Fiasco has announced that he's "officially not releasing any more music" in response to accusations of anti-Semitism, cancelling three planned album releases. The rapper released a new track earlier this week in which he references "dirty Jewish execs".

The new track in question, 'NERD', was released on SoundCloud on Monday, in which he raps: "Artists gettin robbed for their publishing/By dirty Jewish execs who think that it's alms from the covenant".

After numerous accusations of anti-Semitism, Lupe Fiasco denied the claims on Twitter saying that he was "getting beat up for telling the truth". Among a string of tweets defending himself, he said: "I just find it odd that these executives stealing from artists is not the outrage and hasn't been mentioned yet".

Asked why the execs' religion was in any way relevant, he replied: "Because in my case they were Jewish".

He also claimed that SoundCloud had taken down the track due to it being "hate speech", announcing at this point "I'm done". However, the track is still online and available to listen to.

Nevertheless, he then announced: "I get the hint, God. Yo Lupe fans, it's been fun and I hope you've had fun. I'm officially not releasing any more music. Albums cancelled".

Lupe Fiasco said last year that he would release three new albums in 2016, none of which have yet materialised. In October he said that there was now a "strong chance" they would not come out this year after all, due to "clearance and mixing issues".

Ed Sheeran preparing to "break the internet" with new album
Ed Sheeran signed off from public life a year ago. Since the summer he's been making his slow return though, with a surprise appearance at Latitude, writing a song for Robbie Williams, buying a pig effigy of himself, and getting stabbed in the face by royalty. Now, it seems, he's ready to make the final step back into being a working musician. By which I mean, he's posted a big blue square on Instagram.

His last post on the social network was a note informing fans that he was "taking a break from my phone, emails and all social media for a while".

"I've had such an amazing ride over the last five years, but I find myself seeing the world through a screen and not my eyes, so I'm taking this opportunity of me not having to be anywhere or do anything to travel the world and to see everything I missed", he said last December. "The third album is on its way and is the best thing I've made so far. See you all next autumn and thank you for being amazing".

Well, autumn has pretty much become winter, and he's still not singing. The best we've got so far is this year's 'X-Factor' winners single, 'When Christmas Comes Around', which he penned along with 'Thinking Out Loud' co-writer Amy Wadge.

For her part, Wadge has been chatting about her collaborator's new material, telling BBC Newsbeat that Sheeran will "break the internet" when he returns (which, can we all agree, remains a daft thing to say - if anyone's going to break the internet, it's clearly going to be Vladimir Putin).

Wadge added that Sheeran's album is "done" and will be out "really soon". Well done Amy for puncturing the mystery and tension Ed is clearly trying to build with his new social media post. Personally I hoped that was just him announcing he'd joined Tidal's list of celebrity shareholders.

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

A Tribe Called Quest will continue under new name, suggests Q-Tip
Q-Tip has suggested that fans should not get too down about A Tribe Called Quest's previously announced plans to retire. The band last month released their first album for eighteen years, 'We Got It From Here... Thank You For Your Service', announcing that it would be their final record.

The decision to stop was influenced, of course, by the death of the group's Phife Dawg during recording sessions earlier this year. Though this is seemingly also the inspiration for them to continue in some other form too.

Speaking to Annie Mac on Radio 1, Q-Tip said: "[The album is] closure. We're satisfied. It's just hard to imagine continuing without my guy. It's divine, or whatever. We're accepting of it, and we accept it with humility and understanding. There's also a degree of selfishness, because you want that person who's not here with you to be here with you to experience the fruits of the labour. But I know that he's up there experiencing it in a heavenly way".

He continued: "Stay tuned for any other incarnation. We don't intend on stopping because that was Phife's MO - 'this time we gotta do it and keep going' - and now he's left us with the equation of how do we do it, but we are going to need it, and we're going to continue".

Listen to the full interview here.

Sleaford Mods announce new album, English Tapas
Sleaford Mods have announced that they will release their new album - their first for Rough Trade - on 3 Mar, titled 'English Tapas'.

The duo's Jason Williamson explains the title, saying: "Andrew [Fearn] walked into some random pub and saw 'English Tapas' scrawled on the menu board. Underneath this beautiful coupling of words were its components, half a scotch egg, cup of chips, pickle and a mini pork pie. It says everything about this fucking place. It's comedy, it's make do, it's ignorant and above all, it's shit".

As well as the new album, a documentary about Sleaford Mods directed by Christine Franz is due out early next year too.

West meets Trump
Kanye West met with Donald Trump at Trump Tower yesterday. Though before you start speculating that West is about to fill a role in the President-Elect's administration, or perform at his inauguration ceremony, Trump insisted that the pair were meeting as "friends, just friends".

Briefly posing for pictures shortly after their meeting, Trump told reporters that he and West had been friends for "a long time" and that they had "discussed life". West refused to answer any questions, saying that he was just stopping "to take a picture".

Shortly before being hospitalised for exhaustion last month, West told an audience at one of his shows that he had not voted in the recent US presidential election, but would have voted for Trump if he had. This earned him much criticism, as did his meeting yesterday. But West insisted that engaging with Trump was important in a series of tweets later in the day.

West tweeted: "I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues. These issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernising curriculums, and violence in Chicago. I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change".

That sounds like a bit more than "friends discussing life", so who knows if Trump actually took any of it in. However, if not, West could always address all those issues with his own presidential bid. Although, having previously promised he would stand in 2020, he now seems to have pushed it back to 2024. Presumably so best bud Don can have his second term in charge.
