Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Ninja Tune have only gone and signed Seven Davis Jr. And the first fruits of this deal are coming sooner than you think. Unless you think a twelve-inch single called ‘Wild Hearts’ will be out on 9 Feb, because that it what’s happening. He’ll also appear live at Ninja Tune’s ICA takeover next week, which further dates in February.

• The approved Oscar Scheller, just Oscar to you and I, has signed to Wichita Records. His debut single, ‘Daffodil Days’, will be released by the label on 2 Mar.

• Katy Perry has confirmed that Lenny Kravitz will be one of her ‘special guests’ when she does that Super Bowl thing next month.

• Jon Hopkins has curated the next ‘LateNightTales’ compilation, which is due for release on 1 Mar. Amongst the tracklist is a cover of Yeasayer’s ‘I Remember’ by Hopkins himself.

• Purity Ring have announced that they will release their second album, ‘Another Eternity’, on 2 Mar through 4AD. The first single is totally called ‘Begin Again’ and I would be lying if I told you that you couldn’t listen to it here.

• Captured Tracks signing Nic Hessler will release his debut album, titled ‘Soft Connections’, on 17 Mar. Here’s a track from it, ‘Hearts, Repeating’.

• The Wave Pictures would like it to be known that their new single, ‘I Could Hear The Telephone (Three Floors Above Me)’ will be out through Moshi Moshi on 9 Feb. Here it is. Their new album, a collaboration with Billy Childish named ‘Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon’, will be out a week later. Oh, and they’re touring.

• Sometimes it gets a bit boring typing ‘so and so has a single and here it is’, so praise be to Girlpool who have shared a documentary. It’s called ‘Things Are OK’, and it’s on YouTube here. They’ll also be in the UK for touring purposes next month, including a show at The Lexington in London on 18 Feb.

• With the UK release of her Polaris Prize winning album ‘Animism’ coming up later this month, Tanya Tagaq has announced a headline show at London’s Village Underground on 19 May.
