Sentric Music’s Black Rock Publishing has signed Anna and Archie Hamilton, and extended its deal with Felix Da Housecat. “We are humbled and proud to welcome Anna and Archie to the Black Rock family and to confirm that Felix, a client since we first started, has deepened his relationship with us to take full advantage of our creative services”, says Sentric’s Director Of Electronic Music, Mark Lawrence.



Spotify’s co-Head Of Music Marian Dicus has left the streaming service to take up a new role as VP Marketing at Netflix. “Marian is an exceptional marketer, with a diverse background of experiences from which she brings a unique and intuitive approach to strategic and creative marketing”, Netflix CMO Bozoma Saint John tells Billboard.



Billie Eilish has released new single ‘Lost Cause’.

Previously unreleased Prince track ‘Born 2 Die‘ is out now. It’s taken from upcoming album ‘Welcome 2 America’, extracted from the late musician’s vault and set for release on 30 Jul.

Rufus Wainwright has released a new collaboration with Ampersounds, titled ‘Technopera’. They will release an EP on 17 Jul.

Alanis Morissette has released a new collaboration with Willie Nelson‘On The Road Again’. She will be on the road again in November to mark the 25th anniversary of her debut album, ‘Jagged Little Pill’. New UK dates have just been added to that tour, including an extra date at the O2 Arena in London.

With her debut album ‘Man Made’ out tomorrow, Greentea Peng has released new track ‘Free My People’, featuring Simmy and Kid Cruise.

Jungle have released new single ‘Talk About It’. The duo say: “‘Talk About It’ is the second single from our third LP ‘Loving In Stereo’ and it definitely gives listeners another taste of the energy we’ve delivered on this album. The bass riff and drum break were recorded very early on during the process of making this record and it was one of the songs where we really bottled the essence of the idea from very early on and [made sure to] not over-work it”. That album is out on 13 Aug.

Throwing Snow has released new single ‘Traveller’. His new album, ‘Dragons’, is out on 25 Jun.

Genesis Owusu has released new single ‘Same Thing’ – an outtake from his ‘Smiling With No Teeth’ album. “The songs chosen for the album conveyed a very specific narrative, but we also made a lot of great music that didn’t necessarily fit the album’s narrative points”, he explains.

The Joy Formidable have released new single ‘Back To Nothing’. Frontwoman Ritzy Bryan says: “‘Back To Nothing’ takes a stance on self-compassion, realising your worth and your boundaries and deciding not to give your love to an undeserving other”.

Asbjørn has released new single ‘(Love Like A) Teenager’.

Martha Skye Murphy has released new single ‘Found Out’. “The voice is abject; it comes from within the body, it is delivered by the mouth, heard outside our anatomy, taken back in through the ear and felt as a vibration”, she says. “The voice can trigger, titillate, stimulate, induce false memories of the past and desires for the future. Bending and melding, this song teases and guides the passenger into an inescapable place of their own creation”.
