Billie Eilish has announced that she will release her second album, ‘Happier Than Ever’, on 30 Jul. “This is my favourite thing I’ve ever created and I am so excited and nervous and eager for you to hear it”, she says in an Instagram post. “I can’t even tell you. I’ve never felt so much love for a project than I do for this one. Hope you feel what I feel”. The first single will be out tomorrow.

Lana Del Rey has announced that she will release new album ‘Blue Banisters’ on 4 Jul. This is possibly the album she previously announced as ‘Rock Candy Sweet’. Although maybe it’s not and she’s releasing three albums this year. Her last album, ‘Chemtrails Over The Country Club’, was released in March.

Self Esteem – aka Rebecca Taylor – has released new single ‘I Do This All The Time’. “All my upcoming work is exploring how complicated it is to just be a human”, she says. “I’m wonderful and I’m terrible. I hurt people and people hurt me. I feel everything and nothing. It’s a shit laugh but then it can be quite jolly, can’t it?” She has also announced tour dates in November.

Squid have released new single ‘Pamphlets’. “It’s about all the rubbish right-wing propaganda you get through your front door”, says vocalist Ollie Judge. “It imagines a person with that as their only source of news being taken over by these pamphlets”. The band have also announced UK tour dates in September and October.

Featuring members of Lush, Moose, Elastica and Modern English, Piroshka have announced that they will release their second album, ‘Love Drips And Gather’, on 23 Jul. Here’s new single ‘Scratching At The Lid’.

Molly Burch has announced that she will release new album, ‘Romantic Images’, on 23 Jul. Here’s new single ‘Control’.

Alessandro Cortini has released new single ‘Lo Specchio’. His new album, ‘Scuro Chiaro’, is out on 11 Jun.

Wargasm have released new single ‘Your Patron Saints’. They’ve also announced a one-off headline show at The Underworld in London on 10 Sep, in between support shows with Yungblud and Creeper.
