Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Universal Music is shopping a subscription-based music app to mobile firms wanting to offer some tunes to their customers. It’s called Mondia Mix. It may or may not be basically the same as the music app Universal launched with Samsung in the African market called Kleek.

• Artist manager Guy Oseary and guy-who-does-stuff Ashton Kutcher have launched a new investment fund called Sound Ventures. The pair have previously worked together on A-Grade Investments, which invested in Spotify, amongst other things.

• Daughn Gibson has announced that he will release his third album, ‘Carnation’, on 8 Jun through Sub Pop. You can read an interview he did with CMU around his last album here, and come up to the present day with a track from the new album here.

• Post War Glamour Girls and Battle Lines have announced that they will release a split seven-inch single on 13 Apr. Hear PWGG’s contribution, ‘Southpaw Stance’, here.

• The Vaccines will release a new album, titled ‘English Graffiti’, on 25 May through Sony/Columbia. There’s no track to listen to and their upcoming tour is completely sold out, so move along now please.

• P Money has nudged out a video for his track ‘Gimme Two Minutes’, taken from his ‘Originators’ EP.

• Iamamiwhoami have announced that they will play an ‘online concert’ on 29 Apr at 11pm (GMT+1). Watch a trailer and find out how you can get involved (or at least that you can get involved) here.
