50 Cent


Shed Seven have signed a new worldwide services deal with Cooking Vinyl, ahead of new music set for release later this year. “We are THRILLED to announce that we’ve signed with Cooking Vinyl”, says guitarist Paul Banks. “They’re a label that truly values creativity and empowers their artists to explore and develop their craft, which aligns perfectly with our musical vision. It feels like we’ve found our musical home”.



Concord Music Publishing has promoted Brooke Primont to EVP Global Sync. “I am excited to expand my role by bringing together Concord’s sync teams around the world, allowing us to broaden the scope and diversify the opportunities that we can offer our songwriters and composers”, she says. “The global Concord Music Publishing sync team is truly something special, we have developed unparalleled relationships across the entertainment industry, and it doesn’t hurt that our catalogue is full of some of the best songs ever written”.



Busted have released the second track in their series of re-recorded songs. This time it’s ‘Meet You There’, featuring pop punk band Neck Deep. “This is one of the tracks we are most excited about releasing, as we have recorded an entirely new arrangement of the song”, says Busted’s Charlie Simpson. “The original was an acoustic ballad and this new version is a balls out, rock explosion! We are also so happy to have done this with Neck Deep. Ben sounds awesome on it and what is extra special is he told me this was one of his fave Busted songs when he was growing up”.

Bring Me The Horizon have released new single ‘Lost’.

Ellie Dixon has released new single ‘Dopamine’. “I was inspired to write it after reading an article about our brains getting desensitised by too much dopamine from social media”, she says. “Even positive experiences need balancing by calm and I have found myself craving stillness. I hope it can help more people to take some time to rebalance and step out of the constant stimulation in the world around us”.

Mick Harvey and Amanda Acevedo have released a cover of Pat Benatar’s ‘Love Is A Battlefield’, taken from their album ‘Phantasmagoria In Blue’, which is out on 1 Sep.

Helena Deland and Claire Rousay have teamed up for new song ‘Deceiver’, as part of the Mexican Summer label’s ‘Looking Glass’ singles series. “’Deceiver’ takes place in the span of an evening during which the shadows of a female friendship are brought to light”, say the duo. “Drawing from the clear setting detailed in the lyrics, field recordings taken at a park during the late hours of the evening weave in and out of prominence throughout the song. It’s a plea for kindness in spite of there being no resolution or certainty”.

Teke::Teke have released new single ‘Doppelganger’, taken from their upcoming second album ‘Hagata’, which is out on 9 Jun. “Being of mixed Japanese and French-Canadian culture, I always feel like in some way I’m living two parallel lives”, says guitarist Sei Nakauchi Pelletier of the inspiration for the song. “A big part of me is here in Canada, obviously, but another part of me is on the other side of the planet. This could be said about most of us in this band”.

Legss have announced that they will release new EP ‘Fester’ on 9 Jun and have also put out the title track. “The lyrics were written in the summer, when you’re sun-drunk and romantic, and the buses look like they’re kissing as they cross each other, and everyone’s got a cold sore”, say the band. “But beneath all the sunny games there’s a bittersweet desire to be someone or something else, which was how we felt musically at the time. Everything’s different now though, of course”.

See How – aka Chris Howell of Pariis Opera House – has released his debut solo single ‘Can’t Be Me’.



50 Cent has announced UK tour dates in November to mark the 20th anniversary of his debut album ‘Get Rich Or Die Tryin’. The run will hit arenas in Glasgow, Manchester, London and Birmingham and support will come from Busta Rhymes. Tickets go on sale next Friday.
