Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Major Lazer have teamed up with Justin Bieber and MØ for new single ‘Cold Water’. The song is a co-write with Ed Sheeran. Watch the lyric video here.

• Korn have announced that they will release their twelfth album, ‘The Serenity Of Suffering’, on 21 Oct. They’ve also released the video for new single ‘Rotting In Vain’.

• Giggs has revealed the video for new single ‘Whippin Excursion’. The track is taken from the rapper’s new album ‘Landlord’, out on 5 Aug.

• The new Of Montreal single is online. This is it, it’s called ‘My Fair Lady’.

• They – as in the hip hop duo They, whose name is never going to get less awkward – have another track out, called ‘Deep End’.

• Myrkur has released a cover of Bathory’s ‘Song To Hall Up High’, taken from her new live acoustic EP ‘Mausoleum’, which is out on 19 Aug.

• Drugdealer – aka Michael Collins – has announced his debut album. Guests on the record include Ariel Pink and Weyes Blood, the latter of whom appears on new single ‘Suddenly’.

• Trudy And The Romance have released a new single, ‘Wild’. They’ll also be on tour in October, mostly supporting The Big Moon.

• Kesha has announced the US tour she was teasing earlier in the week. The ‘Fuck The World Tour’ will see her performing with new project Kesha And The Creepies. “Until I can release my own music I will be re-inventing some of my old songs and some of my favourite songs from my musical idols”, she explained in an Instagram post.

• Donald Trump’s daughter Tiffany once released a pop single. A mixture of autotune and poor diction makes it quite hard to hear the lyrics, but I think the chorus goes “Feel like a spotter ball, crowning through the liquid love, you came when you tweeted me, baby you know big big bee”. And I think we can all take something from that.

• Shaun Ryder has put himself forward to replace Chris Evans as the host of ‘Top Gear’ in an interview with NME. Yeah, you already wrote the punchline for this in your head, didn’t you?
