Primary Wave Music Publishing has acquired the catalogue of producer Bob Ezrin, which includes work by Pink Floyd, Jane’s Addiction, Alice Cooper, Kiss and more. “This was a good time in my career to consolidate my complex portfolio of diverse rights for the sake of my family and my estate”, says Ezrin sombrely. “Plus, on top of rationalising the past, [Primary Wave] also presented me with a solid vision for the future that I am very excited about – since I intend to keep creating for many years to come!” Phew.



Haggard Cat have encased themselves in a tiny brick tomb for 24hrs to protest Brexit and the affect it is likely to have on UK musicians’ ability to tour Europe. “Locking yourself in a box is a stupid idea”, says frontman Matt Reynolds. “As is Brexit. It’s intentionally doing something we know is stupid and not in our best interests and puts us at risk. As touring musicians, we can see that the outlook for playing in mainland Europe post-Brexit is bleak, and potentially not even viable for developing artists”. Watch them live on the Earache Records Twitch channel.



Fans of meaningless lists of words will be pleased to know that Coldplay have revealed the tracklist for their upcoming ‘Everyday Life’ album via a classified ad in North Wales’s Daily Post newspaper.

Selena Gomez has released two new singles, ‘Lose You To Love Me’ and ‘Look At Her Now’. “I felt having these two songs released back to back completed the story of how one can rise no matter what challenges life brings”, she says. “Turning off the noise and living your life on your terms”.

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have released the full track of the music that plays over the credits of HBO’s new ‘Watchmen’ TV series.

Beck has released the video for recent single ‘Uneventful Days’. Directed by Dev Hynes, it also features Sky Ferreira and Chris Martin.

TNGHT – aka Hudson Mohawke and Lunice – have announced that they will release their first EP for seven years, ‘II’, on 12 Nov. “I think it’s a good indicator if something sounds weird and refreshing to us”, says Hudson Mohawke of their work. “It’s got to fuck with us a little bit when we’re listening to it”. Here’s new single ‘Dollaz’.

Matthew Herbert has announced that he will release a new EP on Foom next month. ‘The Recording’ was recorded in front of, and with the participation of, a live audience in Berlin earlier this year. Listen to opening track ‘Day Three’ here.

A Winged Victory For The Sullen have released a new double A-side single featuring two tracks, ‘The Slow Descent Has Begun’ and ‘Keep It Dark, Deutschland’. Both are taken from their upcoming new album, ‘The Undivided Five’, which is out next week.

Elkka has announced new EP ‘Every Body Is Welcome’, which will be released on her own Femme Culture label on 22 Nov. “For me, the dancefloor has been a place where I have felt the most liberated, the most myself, unified with friends and strangers by the music and moment we are sharing”, she says. “This EP is a celebration of those moments, of the dancefloor, of dance music that has inspired me creatively and personally”. Listen to the title track here.

Anamanaguchi have released new single ‘On My Own’, featuring Hana. It’s the latest track taken from their new album ‘[USA]’, which is out this Friday.
