Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Kobalt’s AWAL has signed a new deal with that Deadmau5 you all love so much. The new alliance relates to his new ‘Mau5ville’ project, which includes new music and some remixes. AWAL boss Lonny Olinick was keen to note Deadmau5’s “raw talent and clout”. Consider it noted. We love clout.

• Jungle have announced that they will release new album ‘For Ever’ on 14 Sep. They’ve released two new singles, ‘Heavy California’ and ‘Cherry’. Hedging their bets, the video for one is a Spotify exclusive, while the other is on Apple Music only.

• Metric have released new single ‘Dressed To Suppress’. “Lyrically, the song explores the maze of conflicts we encounter in our attempts at finding and holding onto love; the absurd mating rituals we routinely perform; and the vast divide between the desires our appearances can imply and the way we actually feel inside”, says vocalist Emily Haines.

• Yazoo will release remastered versions of both of their albums, plus remixes and BBC sessions, on 26 Oct. Look, here’s a John Peel session version of ‘Don’t Go’.
