CMU’s One Liners: Grimes slips out new track, Lykke Li and Woodkid collaborate, announce UK show, and oh so much more

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Girlpool have announced that they will release their debut album, ‘Before The World Was Big’, on 1 Jun through Wichita. First single, ‘Ideal World’, is here.

• Jason Derulo has announced his new single, ‘Want To Want Me’. It is not, as the title would suggest, about his struggle to find himself attractive, plunging him into loveless narcissism. But don’t let that put you off, here it is.

• Once again, I really should have mentioned this last week, but that new Carly Rae Jepsen single has a video now.

• Grimes has placed a new video on YouTube for a track called ‘Realiti’ that “is no longer gonna be on the [new] album”. But does that mean it gives us an idea of what that new album will sound like, or not? I don’t know. Here it is anyway.

• Lady Leshurr has released a second in a monthly series of new tracks on YouTube. This is it, and this is the first one.

• Lykke Li and Woodkid have recorded a new track for the soundtrack of upcoming Hollywood blockbuster ‘Insurgent’. So there’s a sentence I wasn’t expecting to type today.

• With his new album, ‘The Fade In Time’, out next week, folker Sam Lee will play a number of gigs around London next week. Details here.

Approved J-pop group have been confirmed to perform at Japanese culture event Hyper Japan at London’s The O2 on 12 Jul. No word yet on whether they will play any standalone shows while they’re here. Hope so.
