Music charity Help Musicians has named cellist Abel Selaocoe as a new ambassador and Abbey Road Studios MD Isabel Garvey as a new trustee. “Abel and Isabel are two of the very best in their respective fields. With very different backgrounds and careers, they both understand how to harness the power of music to delight and unite audiences the world over”, says chief exec James Ainscough. “Both have strong track records in opening up music and careers in music to an increasingly diverse array of music-lovers and we are honoured to have Isabel and Abel with us as we continue to help musicians to recover and rebuild after the pandemic”.

Yungblud has released new single ‘Tissues’, which samples ‘Close To Me’ by The Cure.

Confidence Man have released a new version of their song ‘Angry Girl’, featuring Chai.

Goat will release new album ‘Oh Death’ on 21 Oct, and have put out its first single ‘Under No Nation’. “This year Goat were invited to the gods’ annual feast at the ‘Round Table Of Funk’”, say the band. “After a very wet evening, and after Goat was pretty funked up, we were handed the manuscript to ‘Under No Nation’, and ordered to play this divine ‘funk’ to the humans – as the gods felt the human spirit is in deep need to get grooving properly again!”

Frankie Cosmos have released new single ‘Aftershook’. Says frontwoman Greta Kline: “‘Aftershook’ is about processing the past, and grappling with maintaining a balanced ratio of emotional awareness and hopefulness. The clown represents my fear of growing up into the kind of stunted adult that toxically influenced my youth”. Their new album, ‘Inner World Peace’, is out on 21 Oct.

Zzzahara has released new single ‘Cupid’s Out Tonight’. Their debut album, ‘Liminal Spaces’, is out on 21 Oct.
