Amy Winehouse


HarbourView Equity Partners has acquired the songs catalogue of Incubus. The deal also includes the solo work of guitarist Mike Einziger.

Coheed And Cambria have signed a new publishing administration deal with Round Hill Music. “We are pleased to welcome [frontman] Claudio [Sanchez] and the band to the Round Hill family”, says the company’s Head Of Creative Services John Baldi. “Our team is excited to explore creative outlets and opportunities for their music and provide support wherever we can on their current release, ‘Vaxis Act II’”.



Audio recognition company Audoo has hired Matthew Fackrell and Eric Nguyen as SVP and General Manager for Asia Pacific and North America respectively. They both join from previous collecting society roles, Fackrell from APRA AMCOS in Australia, and Nguyen from SOCAN in Canada. “At Audoo, the mission of revolutionising the public performance royalties space continues”, says CEO Ryan Edwards. “With Matthew and Eric’s expertise and regional connections, we are in the best place to execute our commitment to delivering the most accurate data for public performance around the world. We look forward to welcoming more international partners, licensees and creators to join us on this industry-changing journey”.



A new scripted TV series about Amy Winehouse – based on the book ’Saving Amy’ by Daphne Barak – is in the works. “Although her career was cut far too short, Amy was the voice of a generation and we look forward to telling her story in the most poignant way possible”, says David Ellender of production company Halcyon Studio.

Liam Gallagher will screen a new documentary about his solo return to Knebworth this summer on 17 Nov. “I’m still in shock that I got to play Knebworth [over] two nights, 26 years after I played it with Oasis”, he says. “I’m still trying to get my head around it. To have played to multiple generations at the same venue so many years apart was beyond biblical”. Tickets and info here.

Sam Smith has announced that they will release their fourth album, ‘Gloria’, on 27 Jan. Smith recently released new single ‘Unholy’, featuring Kim Petras, and will play two shows at the Royal Albert Hall this weekend.

Caroline Polachek has released new single ‘Sunset’, produced by Sega Bodega. “Resolution is so rare in life, but music is unnaturally full of it”, she says. “A sunset is the biggest pop cliche ever, because it’s a perfect resolution. I wanted an operatic chorus with no lyrics, but salted with some very real disillusionment: past all the distraction, dead ends, and false promises of the world is the love we too often take for granted. That’s my sunset”.

HighSchool have released new single ‘Only A Dream’ through Speedy Wunderground. You can catch the band live at the Shacklewell Arms in London on 10 Nov.



Jack Savoretti has been announced as the first artist for Forest Live 2023, playing in four forests around England in June as part of Forestry England’s annual programme of live shows. “I love performing at these wonderful woodland locations, they are like no other live arenas”, says the musician. “I look forward to sharing all the new music we have been releasing with you in these incredible settings”. Tickets go on sale on Friday.
