Björk last week released all the VR gubbins she created for 2015 album ‘Vulnicura’ via the Steam and Vive Port platforms. She says: “The VR videos have been touring museums around the world as part of the Björk Digital exhibition, but now that it is possible to put them all out on an accessible gaming platform available to everyone, I am THRILLED for people to be able to download them in their own home”.

Tove Lo has released new Kylie Minogue collaboration ‘Don’t Really Like U’.

Steve Aoki and the Backstreet Boys have released new collaboration ‘Let It Be Me’. “Being able to work with these guys was so organic and effortless”, says Aoki. “Our collaboration with Steve came about in a very organic way”, add the Backstreet Boys. No pesticides here.

Korn have released new single ‘Can You Hear Me’. They’ve also announced a new six-part drama podcast titled ‘The Nothing’ to promote their new album of the same name.

Prophets Of Rage have released new single ‘Pop Goes The Weapon’. “Guns are both the subject of religious worship AND huge profits in the United States”, says guitarist Tom Morello. “Combined with emboldened white nationalism, the recent epidemic of massacres is little surprise. ‘Pop Goes The Weapon’ channels our ‘thoughts and prayers’ through Marshall stacks and microphones”.

Tegan & Sara have released new single ‘Hey, I’m Just Like You’. “Tegan and I were dirtbags in high school”, says Sara. “Stoned on acid, sneaking out, skipping school, lying to our parents. But we were also having the time of our lives. On acid, Tegan seemed like the funniest, coolest person in the universe. All the animosity and fighting melted away, and we were returned to the original joy of our friendship and delivered back into the wonder of our childhood. This is the origin of this song”.

The Avett Brothers have released new single ‘Bang Bang’. Their new album, ‘Closer Than Together’, is out on 4 Oct.

Daedelus will release new album ‘The Bittereinders’ on 20 Sep. Listen to new single ‘Veldt’ here.
