Physical music product specialist Key Production has announced that is now a B Corp certified business, recognising its focus on social and environmental responsibility. "B Corp really spoke to me when I first came across it, and the process of achieving our certification helped provide a framework for much of what I've wanted to achieve”, says CEO Karen Emanuel. “But it doesn't end here. We'll carry on striving to be at the forefront of any improvements that can be achieved in terms of the supply chain within physical music manufacturing, and will continue to support the global movement for an inclusive, equitable and regenerative economy”.
Daft Punk have announced that they will release a new percussion-free version of their ‘Random Access Memories’ album on 17 Nov. Out now is ‘Within (Dreamless Edition)’.
PinkPantheress has released new single ‘Mosquito’. “After a long wait, my favourite song is coming out to the public. I’m so excited for you guys to hear something different from me in [the] form of this song”, she says.
Two Door Cinema Club have released new single ‘Sure Enough’. “Comfort, safety and security are all easy to come by”, say the band of the track, “all you must do is accept the lie”.
The Streets have released new single ‘Each Day Gives’. New album ‘The Darker The Shadow The Brighter The Light’ is out on 13 Oct. “’Each Day Gives’ comes as the main characters [in the album’s accompanying film] are facing a dilemma and working out what to do after their plans go awry”, says Mike Skinner. “The song talks about overcoming little - and big - adversities and waking up each morning and treating it as a fresh start, until the next dilemma kicks in!”
Madness will release new album ‘Theatre Of The Absurd Presents C’est La Vie’ on 17 Nov. First single ‘C’est La Vie’ is out now. The song, says keyboardist Mike ‘Barso’ Barson, is “about these crazy times we’re living in, and how I just want to stay on my boat and not be a part of all this madness. But, of course, I’m a member of a group called Madness. Perhaps we should have called ourselves Sanity”.
Kelvin Krash has released new single ‘Get A Grip’, featuring A$AP Rocky.
Audio Bullys have released their first new track for twelve years, ‘As We Step’. They’ve also announced that they will play a show at Koko in London on 15 Dec to mark the 20th anniversary of their ‘Ego War’ album.
Marina Herlop will release new album 'Nekkuja’ on 27 Oct. Out now is new single ‘Karada’.
Logic1000 has released new single ‘Grown On Me’. "It’s been way too long since releasing something new so this is a special moment for me”, she says. “This song was written - and now released - during a transformative period of my life. I hope it uplifts you the way writing it uplifted me”.
Marnie Stern is back with new single ‘Believing Is Seeing’. Her first album for ten years, ‘The Comeback Kid’, is out on 3 Nov. “‘Believing Is Seeing’ is about trying to build a world of music through different sounds, and how you can create your own cohesive universe through these sounds”, she says.
