Kanye West

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Kanye West has debuted the video for the other song he recorded recently – the first being that new Rihanna track. Said video features footage of him and daughter North in a field. Look here.

• Dappy’s back. Or backkkk, to use his own words. He’s put a video for a new track called ‘Beautiful Me’ on YouTube.

• Eric Prydz has reworked ‘Tether’ by Chvrches. If that’s a thing you would like to hear, you can listen to it on the BBC website.

• Holly Herndon and Mat Dryhurst have released a track called ‘Recruit’. It’s something to do with clothing brand Cottweiler’s autumn/winter 2015 collection.

• It’s always important to keep in mind that while stealing sheep is illegal, the band Stealing Sheep are not. So it’s totally fine for you to watch their new video. It is a trailer for their new album, ‘Not Real’, which is out on 13 Apr.

• Adam Lambert has announced that his new album is called ‘The Original High’. No release date for it yet, but the first single will be out in April.

• Brian Wilson will release a new solo album on 6 Apr. It’s called ‘No Pier Pressure’, which I think is grounds enough for boycotting it.

• Kasabian’s Serge Pizzorno has claimed that the band not being asked to perform at The BRITs next month is “a conspiracy” to “shut rock and roll out”. And after all that work Alex Turner did last year too, dropping that microphone and everything. Of course, it could be because Kasabian’s last album was really shit. Still, they’ve been booked to perform at the BAFTAs, so that’s the thing.
