Duff Berschback has joined Concord Music Publishing‘s Nashville HQ as EVP Legal & Business Affairs. “Duff signals our intention to build a world class frontline country music roster and catalogue”, says the firm’s Chief Publishing Executive Jake Wisely. “I’m THRILLED to welcome an old friend to our growing business”.

Anne Catherine Swallow has joined Napalm Records‘ European PR team following four years at Nuclear Blast. “I’m very thankful for the opportunity to join the lovely team of Napalm Records and support their ever-growing roster with bands from every metal and rock genre”, she says.



Fiona Apple has announced that her first album for eight years will be called ‘Fetch The Bolt Cutters’, in an interview with The New Yorker.

Perfume Genius has released new single ‘On The Floor’. “A crush can really live on its own, separate from you and the person you are pining for”, he says of it. “I wanted to show that maddening, solitary part of desire but keep the core which is a real warmth and belief that you have something crucial to share with each other”. His new album, ‘Set My Heart On Fire Immediately’, is out on 15 May.

Octavian and Skepta have released a new track together, titled ‘Papi Chulo’.

Mystery Jets have released the video for their latest single ‘A Billion Heartbeats’.

Ex Foreign Beggars frontman PAV4N has released his debut solo single, ‘Karma’. He describes the project as showing “the reality of forging a unique path in music, art and the life of a perpetual foreigner”.

Saint Motel have released new single ‘A Good Song Never Dies’. The track is the first taken from the second instalment of their three part album, ‘The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack’.

Waxahatchee has released new single ‘Can’t Do Much’. “It’s meant to be an extremely unsentimental love song”, she says. “A love song with a strong dose of reality”. Her new album, ‘Saint Cloud’, is out on 27 Mar.

Shura has released new single ‘Elevator Girl’, featuring Ivy Sole. It’s “partly inspired by the time I had to get an elevator to my hotel room on the 22nd floor with a first date who I’d only just met in the lobby”, she says. “When we entered there were other people already in the elevator, so we stayed silent because it felt weird to address the awkwardness in front of strangers. But it’s also about the elation of a first date – the fact that it can make you feel kind of high without drugs”.

Emilie Nicolas has returned with new single ‘Who’s Gonna Love You’. “I really wanted to make a song you can move and dance to”, she says. “‘Who’s Gonna Love You’ is about letting go of someone you love. And the feeling of still being responsible for that person’s happiness, when you’re not in a position to provide any comfort or support at all”.
