Sentric Music’s Black Rock Publishing has extended its deals with Mark Knight, Rodriguez Jr and Mark Jenkyns, and signed brand new agreements with Squire, Piero Pirupa, Harrison BDP and Jacky. “It’s great to be able to work with such respected names”, says Sentric’s Director Of Electronic Music Mark Lawrence. “There are many more exciting announcements to come. Watch this space”.



Arlo Parks has announced that she will release her debut album, ‘Collapsed In Sunbeams’, on 29 Jan 2021. “My album is a series of vignettes and intimate portraits surrounding my adolescence and the people that shaped it”, she says. “It is rooted in storytelling and nostalgia – I want it to feel both universal and hyper-specific”. Here’s new single ‘Green Eyes’.

Sleepwalkrs and MNEK have released the video for their recent single ‘More Than Words’.

Das Body have released new single ‘Better Half’. “This song – and the whole record really – is about discovering emergency exits from your own mortality, from your better half, or your own head”, say the band. Album you say? Yes, titled ‘Peregrine’, that’ll be out on 20 Nov.

Scarlet Soho has announced that they will release a new best of and rarities compilation, titled ‘Programmed To Perfection’, on 16 Nov.



Blondie have announced UK tour dates for November 2021, with support from Garbage. “Next year’s UK tour is more meaningful to me perhaps than the very first time Blondie played there in the mid-70s”, says Debbie Harry. “The UK has always been a special place to us, and being able to come back to perform there after sitting out most of 2020 is very exciting”. Tickets go on general sale on Friday.
