By | Published on Thursday 7 November 2019



Cupcakke has hinted at a speedy return after announcing her retirement in September, saying on Twitter: “Jesus fasted for 40 days and so did I… 16 Nov”.



Tori Amos has announced that she will release a memoir titled ‘Resistance’ on 5 May next year. The book will be heavily political and offer “compassionate guidance and actionable advice” for those “determined to steer the world back in the right direction”.

Beck has released new single ‘Dark Places’, the latest track from his upcoming ‘Hyperspace’ album.

Bring Me The Horizon have released new track ‘Ludens’, taken from the ‘Death Stranding: Timefall’ soundtrack, which also features Chvrches, among others. The game is released tomorrow.

Hudson Mowhake and Lunice have released another new track in their TNGHT guise. Here’s ‘First Body’. Their new EP, ‘II’, is out next week.

Liturgy have announced that they will release a new album, titled ‘HAQQ’, as well as their soundtrack to frontman Hunter Hunt-Hendrix’s opera ‘Origin Of The Alimonies’, next year. From the latter, this is ‘Apparition Of The Eternal Church’.

Actor Joe Pesci is still singing. The proof is his new album ‘Still Singing’, his first LP for more than 20 years. His work rate is really picking up though – there was a 30 year gap between his first and second albums. Anyway, the new record is out on 29 Nov, and here’s first single ‘Baby Girl’, which sees him collaborate with late jazz trumpeter Arturo Sandoval and endlessly awful Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.

Yorkston/Thorne/Khan – that’s James Yorkston, Jon Thorne and Suhail Yusuf Khan – have announced that they will release their third album together, ‘Navarasa: Nine Emotions’, on 24 Jan. From it, this is ‘Westlin Winds’.

Stella Donnelly has released the video for ‘Season’s Greetings’ from her ‘Beware Of The Dogs’ album. “From the moment I wrote ‘Season’s Greetings’, I could visualise a video concept for it”, she says. “I wanted to try and exaggerate the sometimes-nuanced atmosphere of a blisteringly hot, Australian Christmas lunch”.

Tallsaint has released new single ‘Model Effect’. The song is about “how you can take a first look at somebody and be instantly fascinated and engrossed by them”, she says.



The Levellers have announced UK tour dates in February, March, April, May, November and December next year. Because you might as well make your whole diary available at once, eh? Tickets go on sale on Friday.
