Chris Cornell

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• The Chris Cornell statue announced earlier this year has now been unveiled in Seattle.

• With the last two Gorillaz albums, ‘Humanz’ and ‘The Now Now’, released fairly close together, Damon Albarn reckons that you could be in for quite a long a wait for the next one. “We’re going to have to even it out”, he tells the Toronto Sun. “Since there wasn’t much time between these recent two records it’s probably going to be another ten years. Mid-September 2028, so please come and see us now”.

• Jon Hopkins has released another new video, this one for ‘Feel First Life’.

• Vök are back with new single ‘Night & Day’. Their new album is due out early next year.

• Accü is back with new single ‘Crash To Kill’. “‘Crash To Kill’ was the first piece I wrote when I decided to make music on my own again”, she says. “It was a natural yet big decision for me at the time. I suppose my mind saw it fitting to reflect on difficult facts; that destruction is sometimes needed. It’s the being eaten and the desperate wish to be spat back out and that sometimes one must consume the belly that once ate you”.

• The Association Of Independent Festivals has announced the nominations for this year’s Independent Festival Awards. Among them, Sarah Nulty of Tramlines will posthumously receive the outstanding contribution award, following her death earlier this year. The ceremony will take place during Festival Congress on 6 Nov. More details here.

• Check out our weekly Spotify playlist of new music featured in the CMU Daily – updated every Friday.
