Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Some of those pesky sources have told Digital Music News that the reason we haven’t heard any more about Universal ‘doing the deal’ with SoundCloud is because of PRS suing the digital firm. I think they might need a safer harbour.

• Which artist is appearing on ‘Fuck Spotify’ this week? Why, it’s that lovely La Roux. Tweets the singer and former fan of the streaming service: “Thanks for the £100 for this quarter…one more month and I might be able to afford your premium service. Lucky me!” Yeah, lucky you. Next week on ‘Fuck Spotify’, some ‘geezer’ with an inferiority complex.

• Adele’s next album is coming out on 20 Nov, says everyone. Well, mainly Hits Daily Double. And, according to The Sun, she’ll get her own one-hour show on the BBC to promote it, so she doesn’t have to sully herself with the chat show circuit. And you said the licence fee wasn’t worth it!

• Shigeto’s put a new track out. It’s called ‘Do My Thing’ and is taken from new EP ‘Intermission’. That’s out on 30 Oct. Via Ghostly International, if you must know. Anyway, here’s ‘Do My Thing’.

• Brainfeeder will release DJ Paypal’s debut album, ‘Sold Out’, on 13 Nov. From it, this is ‘Awakening’.

• La Luz have a made a video for their track ‘You Disappear’. They’ve got an album called ‘Weirdo Shrine’ out now on Hardly Art, and a UK tour due to begin on 16 Oct.
