The UK wing of Warner Music’s Atlantic Records label has announced that Liz Goodwin is joining as General Manager at the end of April. She joins from Glassnote, where she was UK MD. “Over the past two decades, Liz has played a central role in developing the careers of some of the most important and influential artists of our era”, say her new bosses Ed Howard and Briony Turner. “We’re THRILLED to welcome her into the Atlantic fold”.

Also at Atlantic UK, Max Lutkin has been promoted from Senior Marketing Manager to Head Of Marketing. “We’re pleased to recognise Max with this well-deserved promotion”, say Howard and Turner. “Over the past decade, he’s helped build the careers of many of our most prominent artists, and he brings invaluable experience and deep knowledge to his new post”.

Concord in the US has appointed Victor Zaraya as its new Chief Revenue Officer, replacing Jim Selby, who recently became COO. He moves over from the company’s Kidz Bop unit, where he was President. “Vic will be an exceptional CRO and I look forward to seeing what he can accomplish on behalf of our artists, writers and other creative partners”, says CEO Scott Pascucci.

Oh, but wait, if Victor Zaraya’s leaving Kidz Bop, who’s going to be President there now? Well, that would be current Senior Vice President Sasha Junk. “Kidz Bop is well-positioned to continue its extraordinary growth under Sasha Junk’s leadership”, says Pascucci.

Oh, but wait, is Sasha Junk’s been promoted at Kidz Bop, who’s going to be SVP there now? I don’t know, sorry.

Amnesia Scanner have announced that they will release their second album, ‘Tearless’, on 5 Jun. Written pre-pandemic, it deals with the “a looming sense of radical change” in the air in the current political climate. From it, this is first single ‘AS Going’, featuring Lyzza.
