Southbank Centre

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• London’s Southbank Centre has appointed Bengi Ünsal to the role of Senior Contemporary Music Programmer. She previously ran the venue at the Istanbul Foundation For Culture And Arts.

• Amazon will live stream a Macklemore & Ryan Lewis show taking place in Seattle tomorrow night. And you don’t need to be an Amazon Prime subscriber to watch it. Which is a fucker. I accidentally signed up last month while trying to sneak some free delivery on an ink pad.

• Singapore-based tel co Singtel has allied with rival streaming platforms Spotify, KKBOX and AMPed for its Singtel Music service. Customers can sign up to any one of those services at a slight discount, plus streams will not come out of a user’s mobile data allocation.

• Frankie Cosmos has released a new video for ‘Is It Possible/Sleep Song’. Her new album ‘Next Thing’ is out on 1 Apr.

• Hey! Lovespeake have released their second single, ‘Tightrope’. Have yourself a listen here.

• Make music? Unsigned? British or Irish? Want to perform at the Isle Of Wight Festival? Over 18? Got an internet connection? Available to play at a final in London on 29 Mar? Capable of clicking on a link? Sorted.
