Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Pharrell Williams will seemingly be the first pop man to have an exclusive track streaming out of Apple’s new music service next week, or so this tweeted clip suggests. There’s a free year’s Apple Music subscription to the first person to work out what pop song he’s ripped off this time. Though don’t worry, Taylor Swift will still get royalties during the free year. Oh, and look, it’s an Apple Music ad. Boom.

• To celebrate their 20th anniversary (aside from the Roundhouse residency) Mogwai are releasing a three CD or 6 LP boxset featuring rarities and career highlights. It’ll be called ‘Central Belters’ and is out on 9 Oct. Here’s a new video for old track ‘Helicon 1’ to mark the announcement.

• Rage Against The Machine and Bruce Springsteen guitarist Tom Morello says he’s working on a “big solo rock” album.

• Nick Jonas will play an album launch show at the Islington Academy on 17 Jul. He has an album coming out, you see.

• Petite Noir has announced UK tour dates for September, following the 11 Sep release of his debut album. There’ll be a London show at The Lexington on 15 Sep.

• Missy Elliott is headlining the Sunday night at Bestival this year. Exciting.
