Pink PETA ad

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Pink, real name P!nk, is the latest celeb to go naked in an advert for animal rights organisation PETA.

• Drake released a new album this morning. Just like that. Seriously, you could walk into your local branch of iTunes right now and just buy a copy. It was on his SoundCloud profile too, but it got taken down when I was halfway through listening to it.

• Therapy? got a new album coming out. Called ‘Disquiet’. 23 Mar. Is release date.

• Indie types Man Made have a single coming out called ‘Carsick Cars’. Imagine! Cars that were carsick! How would they manage? Listen here.

• Singy person Soak will be touring the UK quite a lot this year, with headline dates specifically scheduled for June. She’s got an album out on 1 Jun too. Here’s a song from it.

• Axwell /\ Ingrosso are going to play a show at Alexandra Palace on 6 Jun.

• I saw Swim Deep live once and didn’t really enjoy it. I probably shouldn’t tell you things like that right before I say that they’re touring in March and April. Better distract you. Look! Over there!

• David Byrne will curate this year’s Meltdown Festival. It’s a wonder he hasn’t already, really.
