⏩ One Liners: Paul McCartney, Kylie Minogue, McFly + more


Primary Wave has agreed a partnership with the estate of original Village People producer Henri Belolo, giving the company a stake in the group’s brand, recording and song rights. “As we were picking up the mantle following our father’s passing in 2019, we soon realised that - to achieve his dreams of bringing the Village People ideal into the 21st century - the right way is a very bold endeavour”, say Belolo’s sons Jonathan and Anthony. “Our partnership with the amazing team at Primary Wave now brings us the back up and expertise that will ensure we can rise to the task together. With multiple projects in development, the future looks bright as ever for the Village People!”

An unnamed woman who filed a lawsuit last November accusing Jimmy Iovine of sexual abuse and harassment has dropped her claims, according to a new court filing made in New York last week. The legal claim against the Interscope co-founder and former Universal Music and Apple Music exec was filed under New York's Adult Survivors Act.


Paul McCartney has been reunited with a Höfner bass guitar stolen from him around 50 years ago following an international search launched last year by the company’s Nick Wass. Find out more about its rediscovery here.


Kylie Minogue has been announced as the latest headliner for this year’s BST Hyde Park. She will play the series of open air shows in London on 13 Jul. Tickets are due to go on sale on Wednesday. 
McFly have announced that they will play a special show at the O2 Arena in London on 10 Oct to mark their 21st anniversary as a band. “It’s crazy to think that it has been 21 years since McFly was formed and we all moved into a house together”, says drummer Harry Judd. “We don’t take it for granted that after all this time people still want to hear new music from us and come to see us play live. As a band we’re always looking forward to what's next, but this show will be a fun opportunity to reflect on our career so far”. Tickets go on general sale on Friday.


Kokoko! have announced that they will release their new album ‘BITU’ on 5 Jul. Out now is first singler ‘Mokiki’. They’ve also announced a London show at Village Underground on 1 Oct. Tickets are on sale now. 
Joker is back with her first solo music for six years. He has released two new tracks, ‘Juggernaut’ and ‘S Wave’
