Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Cooking Vinyl has signed Feeder to a worldwide services deal. The label will release “the best Feeder album yet”. According to Feeder, that is.

• Sony/ATV has promoted Michael Abitbol to the job of SVP, Business & Legal Affairs, Digital. The New York-based exec will work across all the legalities and licensing aspects of all things digital.

• AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson – no longer fronting AC/DC, for now at least – has signed up to present five radio shows for Planet Rock which will put the spotlight on “the world’s most renowned rock producers”. The shows will air on Sunday evenings.

• Slipknot’s Corey Taylor will guest on Korn’s upcoming twelfth album, and he “really lets loose” on the track on which he appears. Or so Korn guitarist James ‘Munky’ Shaffer tells Metal Hammer.

• Katy Perry’s got a brand new single out called ‘Rise’, which will soundtrack TV network NBC’s coverage of the upcoming Olympics in Rio. It’s available exclusively via Apple channels, so my plan is to exclusively not listen to it.

The Sun says it’s heard the demo of a new track by the reunited Spice Girls called ‘Song For Her’ and it “sounds incredible”. Of course, Mel C and Victoria Beckham are not involved, making the new Spice Girls a trio. To think, they could be the next Bananarama!
