Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Independent music firm Cooking Vinyl has announced a number of initiatives to celebrate its 30 years in business, including the launch of a new £30k fund that will be invested in artist projects, music start ups and ventures that “want to use the power of music to make the world a better place”.

• Country star Jason Alden is planning on holding his new album ‘They Don’t Know’ off all the streaming services for a month, according to Hypebot. Which is amusing given he was one of the artists that got up on stage at that big embarrassing Tidal press conference to declare himself a shareholder in the streaming firm. Good times.

• A statue of Motorhead frontman Lemmy has been erected outside his favourite bar, The Rainbow on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood. See photos and video from the unveiling here.

• Those Kings Of Leon have taken time off from their regal duties to record their seventh album. ‘Walls’ will be released on 14 Oct.

• There’s a new Florence And The Machine song on the soundtrack for the new Tim Burton movie ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children’. You can listen to the song, ‘Wish That You Were Here’, here.

• Check out this new Metronomy video for ’16 Beat’, shot live in Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris.

• Tom Chaplin off of Keane has only gone and released the video for his new solo single ‘Quicksand’. Is there anything he won’t do?

• Yann Tiersen has released another track from his forthcoming solo piano album ‘Eusa’. Here’s ‘Kereon’.

• You could listen to Efterklang’s new single ‘The Colour Of Falling’, if you wanted.

• Clipping have released the video for new single ‘Air Em Out’.

• Hammerfall have released the lyric video for new single ‘The Sacred Vow’, taken from their forthcoming new album ‘Built To Last’, out on 4 Nov.

• Esben And The Witch have released ‘Sylvan’, the first track from their upcoming new album. “We wanted to paint a picture of a forest in flames”, say the band, even though they actually ended up writing a song.
