Believe has announced the appointment of Alex Kennedy to the role of Managing Director of its UK business. He’s previously held senior roles at Music Glue, Sky and Omnifone, as well as founding retail tech business Givvit and managing Doc Brown. “I couldn’t be happier to be joining what I consider to be the most exciting and forward-thinking company in the music industry”, he says of his new job.

Kobalt in the US has announced the promotion of Lisa Bergami to the role of VP Creative Sync. “Simply put, Lisa gets the right music in front of music supervisors and consistently gets our songs placed in high profile advertising opportunities”, says the company’s Head of Global Sync & Brand Partnerships, Rob Christensen.

Absolute Label Services has announced two promotions within its team, with Kate Hendry and James Cattermole – both previously Senior Label Managers – becoming Head Of Label Operations and Head Of Label Services respectively.



Amy Winehouse’s 2007 Glastonbury performance is set to be released on vinyl on 3 Jun. “Amy Winehouse was a Glastonbury-goer through and through”, says the festival’s Emily Eavis. “She either came and played or, when she wasn’t working, came and camped. She played in the blistering heat and the heavy rain, and there were so many magical moments to her performances”.

Jamie XX is doing it again with new single ‘Let’s Do It Again’. “I started making this tune last year, just as it felt like we might all be able to start doing the things we love again”, he says.

100 Gecs have released new single ‘Doritos & Fritos’. Their second album, ‘10000 Gecs’, is due out later this year.

Machine Head have released new single ‘Choke On The Ashes Of Your Hate’. They’ve also announced that they will release new album ‘Of Kingdom And Crown’ on 26 Aug.
