Bucks Music Group has signed an administration agreement with the band Gene. “We are very excited to be working with these incredible songs”, says Bucks Head Of Sync Jonathan Tester.



Warner Music UK has promoted Victor Aroldoss to Senior Vice President, International Marketing. “Victor is a creative and strategic thinker, with an immense passion for music, and there’s no one better placed to champion our artists on an international stage”, says Warner UK boss Tony Harlow.

Sony Music Group – which unites the global labels and music publishing businesses of Sony Corp – has appointed Towalame Austin as Executive Vice President, Philanthropy And Social Impact. “It is an honour to join Sony Music Group and deliver on their promise to meaningfully support communities in need”, she says. “I look forward to bringing my expertise to the company to help develop its philanthropic and advocacy efforts globally”.



Dua Lipa has released the video for ‘Hallucinate’, from her ‘Future Nostalgia’ album.

Becky G has released new single ‘My Man’. “I always loved the perspective Jenni Rivera sang from on ‘La Gran Señora’ and thought that it was so different”, she says. “It’s a unique perspective that is never really shared in songs, so I thought it would be dope to bring an upbeat 2020 Becky G flow to a concept story like that with my Spanglish style”.

Kaytranda has released new single ‘Look Easy’, featuring Lucky Daye.

Kim Petras has released new single ‘Broken Glass’, featuring Kygo.

Influenced by the impressive combination of the Dixie Cups, Salt N Pepa, Bollywood soundtracks and William Onyeabor, The Go! Team are back with new single ‘Cookie Scene’. “I wanted to mix the street corner with the intergalactic, to take Detroit to outer space”, says the band’s Ian Parton.

Bob Mould has released new single ‘Forecast Of Rain’. “I recognise the importance of religion for those who believe”, he says of the inspiration for the song. “But right now, I’m having a hard time understanding how certain religious sectarians can support the behaviour of those who occupy the People’s House … I’m not good at quoting scripture, but I can manage two words: Jesus wept”.



Nick Cave has released a trailer for his upcoming solo, audience-less performance at Alexandra Palace in London. The show will be broadcast online on 23 Jul. Tickets are available now.
