Rita Ora

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• As expected, Rita Ora has quit as a judge on ‘The X-Factor’ after just one year. Music and film commitments are being touted as the reason, though it’s also rumoured that she’s going back to ‘The Voice’ as it moves to ITV.

• Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor will appear on a future episode of ‘QI’. He was on an episode of spin-off podcast ‘No Such Thing As A Fish’ released on vinyl by Alcopop! Records last year.

• Zayn Malik has released a video for ‘Like I Would’. For such an over the top production, you’d think he might put a little more effort into his dance moves.

Here’s the new Pet Shop Boys single, ‘Twenty-Something’.

Here’s the video for Kaytranada’s ‘Lite Spots’. He’s headlining the Troxy in London this Friday too.

• Ex-Klaxon James Righton has released a video for ‘Open Up The Sky’ from his new project Shock Machine.
