Other notable announcements and developments today…

• It is possible that Beyonce and Jay-Z will release a collaborative album soon. But equally, it’s possible they won’t. But producer Detail did say at the Grammys: “Me and Beyonce and Jay Z are actually doing something together this year”. He might mean they’re going on holiday together, or joining an art class. But music is an option, I suppose.

• Korn and Slipknot have released an official video for their live cover of Beastie Boys’ ‘Sabotage’. Sobbing emoji. Sobbing emoji. Sobbing emoji.

• Japanese mathrock trio Tricot will release a new album called ‘And’ on 18 Mar. Will it be released in the UK on that date? Maybe. Here’s a clip of new single, ‘E’.

• Unknown Mortal Orchestra have announced a few UK tour dates in May to accompany their new album, ‘Multi-Love’. There will be two headline shows, one at Bristol’s Thekla on 20 May and another at the Islington Assembly Hall in London on 21 May. Dates and tickets here.

• Nightwish will perform live at Wembley Arena on 19 Dec. Apparently this makes them the first Finnish band ever to headline the venue. Tickets!

• Twerps will be in the UK for four live shows in May. They’ll play The Great Escape, plus gigs in Bristol, Manchester and London from between 15-18 May. And here’s a new video for their song ‘Stranger’.
