Other notable announcements and developments today…

• The Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Choir is currently on track for the Christmas number one position with ‘A Bridge Over You’ – a mash-up of Coldplay’s ‘Fix You’ and ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ by Simon & Garfunkel. This year, thanks to the chart’s shift to Friday, the big reveal will come on Christmas Day itself.

• The new M83 album is finished and is apparently “quite different” to any of Anthony Gonzalez’s previous works, it being influenced by 60s and 70s TV shows “like ‘Punky Brewster’ and ‘Who’s The Boss'”.

• Sunn o)))’s Stephen O’Malley has released a vinyl-only album, titled ‘Fuck Fundamentalist Pigs’ in response to the attacks on Paris (where O’Malley lives) last month. Find out more about the release here.

• Balam Acab has put out his first new release in four years. Check it out on Bandcamp here.

• Specific Records has released a new EP by CMU approved Japanese pop-rap duo Suiyoubi No Campanella called ‘Jugem Je T’aime’. It’s out on limited edition vinyl right now.

• Benga will continue his tentative return to music in February, playing a headline DJ set in a Tectonic-hosted room at Fabric on 12 Feb.

• Dental surgeon Darragh Mulrooney has spoken to The Independent about climbing “the Everest of dentistry” by putting teeth back in the mouth of Shane MacGowan.
