Sentric Music

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Sentric Music has compiled some of its best blog posts aimed at emerging artists into one handy list. Go forth and read here.

• Fall Out Boy have released their version of ‘I Wanna Be Like You (The Monkey Song)’, taken from a new Disney covers album. It’s terrible. Like, really awful. But I’ve just put myself through listening to it, so you might as well share my pain. Listen here.

• Lady Gaga is recording a second jazz album with Tony Bennett. Because that’s what the fans want. This one will be all Cole Porter songs, Bennett told Vulture.

• Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon thinks his band’s 1985 Bond theme ‘A View To A Kill’ is better than Sam Smith’s recent effort. Although he doesn’t seem to have heard the whole of Smith’s ‘Writing’s On The Wall’, so that’s probably not a fair critique. Even if he is correct. “I caught a little bit of it, it’s not my favourite – I prefer ours”, he told Gigwise.

• One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson called BBC Northern Ireland presenter Stephen Nolan a “little shit” for not listening to the band’s new single ‘Perfect’ before interviewing him. Fair enough. Don’t get similarly caught out, watch the video now. It sounds a bit like ‘Style’ by Taylor Swift.

• The artist most likely to win the Mercury Prize, Róisín Murphy, has released a new track from her Mercury-nominated album ‘Hairless Toys’. Here’s the video for ‘Unputdownable’ right here.

• Dead cert Mercury winner Eska will be touring the UK next month, including a show at London’s Islington Assembly Hall on 27 Nov. Here’s recent-ish single ‘Shades Of Blue’.
