Abba’s Björn Ulvaeus has been appointed President of CISAC, the global grouping for song right collecting societies. He takes over from Jean-Michel Jarre. Accepting the role, Ulvaeus says he “believes passionately” in CISAC’s “mission to secure better, fairer terms for creators”, but is also interested in “how the technologies we use can work better, earning creators fairer rewards for their work and more royalties”.



Rosalía has teamed up with Travis Scott for new track, ‘TKN’. “Travis is an artist who I’ve admired a lot since the beginning of his career and I can’t imagine a better artist to collaborate with on this song”, she says. “I feel that now is the moment to release this song, after so many months of staying indoors, missing freedom or being with people we love”.

Flying Lotus has released an instrumental version of his 2019 album ‘Flamagra’, a year after the original wordier version came out. Warp has also released a big old article about the release by journalist Jeff Weiss, where you can also listen to the instrumental version of ‘Debbie Is Depressed’.

Everything Everything have released the video for new single ‘Arch Enemy’.

Soko has released new single ‘Blasphémie’. “This is the first song I’ve ever written in French”, says the French musician. “Essentially this song is about taking something beautiful and ruining it, and knowing you ruined it, but there is nothing you can do”. Her new album, ‘Feel Feelings’, is out on 12 Jun.

Inhaler have released the video for new single ‘Falling In’. Directors Douglas Hart and Antony Genn barked instructions at the band over Zoom and then added a load of effects to the footage they recorded in order to make it not look shit.

Protomartyr have released new single ‘Michigan Hammers’. Their new album, ‘Ultimate Success Today’, is out on 17 Jul.

Romare has released new single ‘Sunshine’. His new album, ‘Home’, will be released through Ninja Tune on 31 Jul.
