Other notable announcements and developments today…

• TuneCore has a new VP Marketing in the former of Andreea Gleeson, who joins from retail firm Lord & Taylor.

• Kobalt has announced the appointment of Kenney Shiu as Director of Music Publishing for Asia Pacific. He will be based in Hong Kong and will report into the MD of Kobalt in Australia, Simon Moor.

• Fans of local radio stations becoming part of quasi-national station networks should get 18 Jan in their diaries. That’s when Liverpool’s Juice FM will officially become an outpost of Capital FM, following Global Radio’s acquisition of the station earlier this year.

Here’s a new Pusha T video, ‘Crutches, Crosses, Caskets’.

Here’s DIIV’s new single, ‘Under The Sun’.

• Andrew Hung from Fuck Buttons has released a new solo EP, ‘Rave Cave 2’. You can listen to it on SoundCloud here.

• Kelly Lee Owens has covered Aaliyah’s ‘More Than A Woman’. Don’t believe me? Well how do you explain this?

• Dutch showcase festival Eurosonic Noorderslag has been awarded IMPALA’s annual Outstanding Contribution Award, which the pan-European indie labels trade group presents each year to recognise “exceptional efforts of an individual or organisation to promote and develop European independent music”.

• BRITs organisers have announced that “superstar Adele” will play at the annual awards bash next February. Which is good news. Superstar Adele is my favourite of all the Adeles. Google Play is this year’s official BRITs streaming partner which means its seven users will be able to stream Adele’s performance after the show. More good news!
