The UK’s Featured Artists Coalition held its AGM yesterday. Brix Smith, best known for her work in The Fall, joined the organisation’s board, with Imogen Heap, Katie Melua, Jeremy Pritchard, Sam Lee and Roxanne de Bastion all also returned as directors. Meanwhile Benny Bizzie becomes a permanent observer to the FAC board with a focus on issues of disability and access within the artist community.

Warner Records in the US has promoted Shawnae Corbett-Rice to SVP Marketing. “I’ve always strived to build sustainable visibility for our artists”, she says. “So whatever stage they are in their careers, and wherever they are in a release cycle, they’re always front of mind in the fan community. I’m really looking forward to creating more innovative and adventurous campaigns on behalf of our amazing artists and their music”.



Adele has released the video for ‘I Drink Wine’ from her ‘30’ album.

Killer Mike has released new solo single ‘Talk’n That Shit’. “The song is self explanatory”, he says.

La Roux is back with new single ‘Feedback’, featuring Baby Tate. She says of the track: “’Feedback’ is about craving blunt honesty because you’ve reached a stage where you aren’t taking things personally anymore, and have a deep desire to learn so you can be the best you can be”.

The Go! Team have released new single ‘Look Away, Look Away’, featuring the Star Feminine Band. Their new album, ‘Get Up Sequences Part Two’, is out on 3 Feb.

Fucked Up have announced that they will release new album ‘One Day’ on 27 Jan. The album – taking its title literally – was written and recorded in one 24 hour period. “After you’ve been in a band for this long, you lose track of what your sound actually is”, says guitarist Mike Haliechuk. “24 hours can feel like a long time, but you can get a lot done then, too. It can feel like forever and one minute at the same time. If you work on something for one day, it can end up being really special”. Here’s the title track.

Hundred Reasons have released new single ‘Glorious Sunset’, the title track of their first album in fifteen years, which is due out on 24 Feb. The band have also announced UK tour dates with Hell Is For Heroes and My Vitriol in February and March next year.

Ladytron have released new single ‘City Of Angels’. New album ‘Times Arrow’ is out on 20 Jan.

Algiers have teamed up with Rage Against The Machine’s Zack De La Rocha for new single ‘Irreversible Damage’. They’ve also announced that they will release new album ‘Shook’ on 3 Feb, and have a London show booked at The Dome on 8 Mar.

Katatonia have announced that they will release their twelfth album, ‘Sky Void Of Stars’, on 20 Jan. It is, they say, “a dynamic journey through vibrant darkness. Born out of yearning for what was lost and not found, the very peripheries of the unreachable, but composed and condensed into human form and presented as sounds and words true to the Katatonia signum. No stars here, just violent rain”. Here’s the album’s first single ‘Atrium’.

Mikeneko Homeless have collaborated with Punipunidenki on new track ‘Your Room’. Their new album, ‘Time To Love’, is out next month.
