Cardi B

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• If you’re wondering who’s going to star in this year’s Super Bowl Pepsi commercial, well, you’re a terrible person. But I can tell you it’s Cardi B. Because while her principles apparently won’t allow her to perform in the half time show, she’s still more than happy to take money from its main sponsor.

• If you had a large bet placed on Shaun Ryder not having any work published by Faber in his lifetime, I’m afraid the drinks are not on you tonight. He is both alive and having a book published by Faber. ‘Wrote For Luck: Selected Lyrics’ will be published by Faber on 3 Mar.

• Dua Lipa has released a new song, ‘Swan Song’. It’s taken from upcoming Robert Rodriquez movie ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ and the video for the track very much reflects this fact.

• Best known for being Beck, Beck has released new single, ‘Tarantula’, taken from a new compilation of songs inspired by the film ‘Roma’. This song is a reimaging of a 1982 Colourbox B-side, which I guessed he must have thought of while watching ‘Roma’.

• Bring Me The Horizon have a new album out today, and on it is a song featuring Grimes. Cool, huh? It’s called ‘Nihilist Blues’, and this is it here.

• Florence And The Machine have released two new songs. Two! That’s the sort of productivity you can achieve when you have a machine in your band, I guess. Anyway, there’s one called ‘Moderation’ and one called ‘Haunted House’. You can listen to both here.

• Aurora has released new single, ‘Animal’. “I spend a lot of time thinking about humans”, she says.

• Conor Oberst and Phoebe Bridgers are releasing an album together, called ‘Better Oblivion Community Center’. That is also the name of the band they have formed to make this album. Here they are performing the song ‘Dylan Thomas’ on ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’.

• Rose Elinor Dougall has released new single ‘First Sign’, taken from her new album ‘A New Illusion’, which is out on 5 Apr.
