Venue operator ASM Global has appointed former artist manager and major label exec Brian Celler to the newly created role of Senior Vice President, Content And Programming, Europe. He will be “responsible for leading ASM Global’s best-in-class live entertainment offering, driving high-calibre, diverse content across ASM Global’s growing portfolio of venues in the UK and Europe”. Sounds fun.

Booking agency Midnight Mango has added frontman of folk band Man The Lifeboats Rich Quarterman to its team of agents. “I’m looking forward to working with the incredible team at MM, and to be representing artists that I truly love and care about is a pleasure and a privilege”, he says.



Anne-Marie has announced that she will release her third album ‘Unhealthy’ on 28 Jul. The LP will feature guest vocals from Aitch and Khalid.

Miguel has released new single ‘Give It To Me’.

Simply Red have released new single ‘Just Like You’. The band’s new album ‘Time’ is out on 26 May. The band will also play their only UK show of the year at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire on 5 Jun.

Rico Nasty has released new single ‘Turn It Up’, produced by 100 Gecs.

Health have released new track ‘Hateful’, written for the latest edition of the ‘Ultrakill’ video game.

Dagny has released new single ‘Heartbreak In The Making’. The song, she says, “is essentially about diving into something, even though you have that gut feeling that it’s never going to end well. It’s a bit like the first tequila shot at a bar; you know where the night is headed, but you do it anyway”.

Swim Deep have released a new version of their song ‘King City’ with Warpaint’s Jenny Lee Lindberg – the subject of the song – to mark the tenth anniversary of their debut album ‘Where The Heaven Are We’. “I had such a lovely time spinning this song into darker territories”, she says. “I have always been so honoured they chose me to sing about, still kind of shocking”.

Lorelle Meets The Obsolete will release new album ‘Datura’ on 16 Jun. Out now is new single ‘Dínamo’. The band will also be touring the UK in September, including a show at The Lexington in London on 20 Sep.



John Grant and Richard Hawley have announced a tour of their Patsy Cline tribute show, which will premiere at the Manchester International Festival on 11 Jul. The September run of shows will conclude with a performance at the Barbican in London on 24 Sep.
