Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Having played a sold out show at Brixton Academy last night, Chvrches have slung their new single, ‘Get Away’, up on SoundCloud for all to hear. Really, you can hear it here. There’s also a new video for ‘Under The Tide’, which comes from their debut album. Watch that here.

• A non-fiction video on grime king and Rinse co-founder Slimzee, directed by Rollo Jackson of video-directing renown, is now available to watch online. All 21 minutes and 55 seconds of it. Watch now!

• Vegas-based “musician, comedian, singer, rapper, twerker, chef, writer, filmmaker” and “skinny fat ass” (says his Twitter biog) Shamir Bailey, who recently signed to XL Recordings, has released a new single in ‘On The Regular’. So why not view it here? And maybe view Shamir singing it live and in real life when he plays London’s Courtyard Theatre on 4 Dec.

• Cheryl ‘not Cole’ Fernandez-Versini will move her finger a bit to switch on the Oxford Street Christmas lights on 6 Nov. She’ll be joined by Rixton and Jess Glynne on site at ‘the big switch-on’, both of whom will sing songs. As will she, I think. Go Cheryl!

• It’s Halloween! You can’t failed to have noticed. You’re probably eating a pumpkin and writing a letter to the grim reaper as we speak. That’s what happens, right? Dizzee Rascal, gawd luv ‘im, has been slashing people up with knives. He videoed it and everything, and has made the evidence available via Noisey. Only until Sunday though, at which point the video will disappear like a ghost, or something spooky like that. Have a watch here.
