Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Tidal has seen a 155% boost in its UK Android users since it bagged the exclusive on Kanye West’s ‘The Life Of Pablo’ album. According to The Drum, 0.1% of Android users in the UK are now using the app. A threefold uplift, don’t you know.

• I made a derogatory comment about the artwork of Gwen Stefani’s album recently, which some people felt was uncalled for. And now that I’ve seen the cover for Zayn Malik’s debut LP I’m starting to think they might have been right.

Here’s the video for Miguel’s new single ‘Waves’. And here’s a reminder that Miguel’s ‘Wildheart’ album is very good.
