Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Following its announcement a year ago that it would offer music in a new lower-file-size high-quality format called Master Quality Authenticated, or MQA, 7digital will have indie label content in that format on its B2B and consumer-facing platforms from today. And the 7digital-powered Onkyomusic got in there first by putting MQA files live last week.

• More than 230,000 people tuned in to the live stream of Lemmy’s funeral this weekend. Some highlights are on YouTube, including speeches by Dave Grohl, Judas Priest’s Rob Halford and Anthrax’s Scott Ian.

• Tindersticks will screen their new film project ‘The Waiting Room’ with a Q&A and acoustic performance at Rough Trade East on 22 Jan.

• Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy will be releasing a compilation of John Peel sessions on 22 Jan entitled ‘Pond Scum’. Listen to ‘Rich Wife Full of Happiness’ from the record here.

• It’ll be BRITs nominations time again on Thursday. ITV will air a special show at 10.40pm to unveil all the names, and there’ll be performances from Years & Years, Jess Glynne and BBC Sound Of 2016 winner Jack Garratt.
