Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Commercially viable hitmaker Rita Ora’s next single will bear the title ‘Testosterone’, she hinted to Lance Bass off of N*Sync at this year’s American Music Awards, all whilst showing off a new half-bald hairdo. She shall give the track its first play, provided anyone cares this time around, within the next “week and a half”.

• 4AD-signed alt-pop bands Daughter and Warpaint are releasing a split single consisting of two one-off remixes of each other’s tracks, and all for the love of Record Store Day 2015. The first to be revealed is a Warpaint mix of Daughter track ‘Winter’, from the latter’s first LP ‘If You Leave’. Stream it here.

• Over-lip-linered (and approved) popstar Hannah Diamond has added to ‘Pink And Blue’ et al with a very squeaky new track titled ‘Every Night’. It’s available now on iTunes and SoundCloud, c/o the still-ridiculous PC Music.

• Rightly approved pop boy Alex Burey will release his first EP, the four-track ‘Inside World’, via his own Pling Recordings label on 26 Jan. Locate its title song via this link, and tickets to a show Burey and his band will headline, at London’s St Pancras Old Church on 21 Jan, via this one.

• Kaleidoscopic Cape Town artist Petite Noir, aka Yannick Ilungam, has made a cool new video for his ‘King Of Anxiety EP’-featuring track ‘Chess’, directed by filmmaker Cieron Magat, and inspired by the ‘aspirational’ portraits of Ghanaian artist photographer Philip Kwame Apagya. Watch it now via Dazed Digital.

• The first big list of acts playing 2015’s Field Day festival has been confirmed. It’s lead by Caribou – who’ll co-headline the weekend fest with the already revealed Ride – and features THE Patti Smith and band playing all of her 1975 LP ‘Horses’, and Diiv, Django Django, Chet Faker, Kindness, Sophie, Tei Shi and a b2b set by Ben Klock and Marcel Dettman. Tickets to next year’s Field Day, which takes place in London’s Victoria Park on 6-7 Jun, are available here.
