By and | Published on Tuesday 17 January 2017


Other notable announcements and developments today…

• AIM and WIN last night used the Women In Music event to announce a new free public speaking course for women working in music led by WIN boss Alison Wenham. It’s part of a bid to ensure more diversity at industry events by encouraging a wider range of execs to join the on-stage debate. Women working in the UK music business who have not previously done more than two public speaking engagements are eligible to apply – email to go in the draw for a place.

• FastForward – the music conference for you young types (aka under 35s) – has announced that its second keynote speaker this year will be Devi Kolli of VR firm AiSolve. The event takes place from 23-24 Feb in Amsterdam.

• John Lydon is publishing a limited edition book of all the songs he’s ever written, featuring handwritten lyrics, artwork and other stuff. Have a look.

• They have released new single ‘U Rite’. They’re debut album, ‘Nü Religion: Hyena’, is out next month.

• House Of Black Lanterns has released a new EP, ‘Dreams Of Neon Fire’. He’s also released the standalone versions of tracks from last album ‘You Were Telling Me Of Mountains’.

• Cherry Glazerr have released new single ‘Nuclear Bomb’. Here’s the video, it is funny. New album ‘Apocalipstick’ is out on 20 Jan.

• Dream Wife’s last single ‘FUU’ came out in October, but now it has a video, so I think it’s worth mentioning again. They play The Old Blue Last on 17 Jan.

• Elbow will be touring the forests of the UK (seven of them, anyway – how many forests do we have? – more than seven definitely) in June and July. Details here.
