DEALS

🎤
Warner Chappell has signed a publishing deal with rapidly rising rapper Kaliii. “There’s a new generation of talented lyricists making waves in the industry right now and Kaliii is a clear standout above the rest”, says the company’s North American President Ryan Press. “She’s an incredibly talented songwriter who knows what she wants in her career and the whole Warner Chappell team is grateful to be joining her on this journey”.

LABELS & PUBLISHERS

🍎
JKBX, the new music rights investment platform headed up by The Orchard founder Scott Cohen, will officially launch on 12 Sep providing – and I quote – “retail investors and music fans with the opportunity to reserve royalty shares of globally-recognised songs offered by its affiliate, Jukebox Hits Vol 1 LLC”. So, basically, people will be able to confirm an interest in buying royalty shares in relation to the song rights in works recorded by the likes of Beyonce, Adele, Taylor Swift, OneRepublic, Ed Sheeran, Kelly Clarkson, Major Lazer and Jonas Brothers.

RELEASES

🫀
Jason Derulo has released new single ‘Body Count’. “This record is about having a more playful and casual attitude toward romantic and physical relationships and focusing on creating memorable experiences together”, he says. “Like the song says, ‘I don’t really care about your body count cause I just want to make that body count’”.

🗽
Corinne Bailey Rae has released new track ‘Erasure’. Wanna hear it? Well, it’s only currently available as the b-side to a limited edition seven-inch of recent single ‘New York Transit Queen’. “Some of the themes of ‘Erasure’ are concerned with the erasure of black childhood so I wanted it to be unhinged and witchy, allowing broken down collapsed mental health in”, she says. “How else do you sing, ‘They put out lit cigarettes/Down your sweet throat/They fed you to the alligators’?”
🤠
The Callous Daoboys have announced that they will release new EP ‘God Smiles Upon The Callous Daoboys’ on 20 Oct. Out now is new single ‘Waco Jesus’. “In a way, it feels like the band just started, even though we’ve been chipping away at it for the last six years”, says vocalist Carson Pace. “We want to be the defining band of this weirdo genre-swapping heavy music, where you can’t put it under an umbrella. I think what’s cool about it is it’s just immediately like, ‘Hey, fuck you, this is The Callous Daoboys!’”
🔪
Knife Bride have released new single ‘Permanent Smile’, which vocalist Mollie Buckley describes as “a romanticised revenge narrative”. She goes on: “I’ve always been fascinated with films like ‘I Spit On Your Grave’, ‘Hard Candy’ and ‘Promising Young Woman’, and that’s definitely where the concept for the song came from. Retribution is always sweet… or so says cinema”. The track is taken from new EP ‘Don’t Dream Too Much’. They will play a free EP launch show at Blondies in London on 1 Sep.

GIGS & TOURS
