Universal Music Publishing in Nashville has signed country musician Morgan Wade to a worldwide publishing deal. “It feels great to have a songwriting home with so many other artists and writers I admire”, she says. “I feel very supported by UMPG. I’m THRILLED to see where we go from here”.

Mom+Pop Music has signed Seb to a worldwide record deal. “I’m so excited to be teaming up with a label who sees as far into the future as I do”, he says. “Mom+Pop truly embodies everything I value, so I knew I was making the right choice”.

Nashville-based River House Artists, in partnership with Sony Music Publishing, has signed country musician Grant Gilbert to a worldwide publishing deal. “I am super excited to sign a publishing deal with River House Artists”, he says. “It feels good to know I have a team behind me that is willing to work hard and believe in me as an artist and songwriter. They already feel like family, and I can’t wait to get to work!”



West One Music Group has announced the opening of a new office in Copenhagen, as part of its ongoing expansion plans. Overseeing that expansion, Nick Leonard says: “The Nordics are at the forefront of trailblazing film and TV content, so I’m incredibly excited to be opening our new office in Copenhagen, home to a pool of super talented creatives”.



DVSN and Ty Dolla $ign have released a new track together, featuring late rapper Mac Miller, titled ‘I Believed It’. The track will appear on a forthcoming collaborative album.

Yxng Bane has released new single ‘Birthday’, featuring Stefflon Don.

Five Seconds Of Summer’s Luke Hemmings has released his debut solo single, ‘Starting Line’. The song, he says, is about “missing various memories”. He goes on: “You’re reflecting on your youth and all of the madness and craziness. It’s like you’re forgetting so many pieces of your life – not from vices or anything – but from the sheer volume. A lot of the album deals with the idea time is slipping away from you”. That album, by the way, is called ‘When Facing The Things We Turn Away From’, and is out on 13 Aug.

Matilda Mann has released new single ‘Bloom’. It “is about meeting someone too soon”, she says. “Sometimes you need a little more time, to figure out what you want and how to be alone, so that you don’t give too much of yourself away to someone else”. She’s also announced that she will play Lafayette in London on 6 Oct.

Denai Moore and Django Django have released new track ‘Say Something’ – the first to come out of Abbey Road Studios’ new Abbey Road Lock-In series. “Having spent the year writing on my own in my home studio, it was really refreshing to write something new with someone else for the first time in a year”, says Moore. “Abbey Road has a special presence to it, almost like going to your school prom as a musician. Feels like a rare magical occasion”.

The recently CMU Approved Reb Fountain has announced that she will release her new album, ‘Iris’, on 1 Oct. “Iris is in many ways an unsung hero, known as the goddess of the rainbow, sea and sky, she acts as a bridge between the gods to humanity with little of her own story known”, Fountain says. “I wanted and needed to give voice to this essential human spirit; to conjure and hold and commune with the very real, valid and invaluable voices within and around me”. Here’s new single ‘Beastie’.

We Were Promised Jetpacks have announced that they will release their new album, ‘Enjoy The View’, on 10 Sep. Here’s new single ‘Fat Chance’. They will also tour the UK in December.

Avawaves will release their second album, ‘Chrysalis’, on 8 Oct. “In 2020 as we wrote and recorded our album from two different countries, creating this space was more important than ever against the backdrop of isolation and working remotely”, they say. “Each of the pieces are made within this chrysalis. The feeling we want is that through the music, people can enter this immersive world and come out in a renewed and altered state, drawing strength from the music, energised by nature’s empowering resilience”. Here’s new single ‘Lucid Dreaming’.

Redhino has announced that his new album, ‘Finally We’re Alone’, will be out on 23 Jul. Here’s new single ‘Studio F’.

Binki has released new single ‘Revolve’. The song, he says, is “about magnetism. Opposites attract and all that, but also the opposite is true. For better or worse. What pulls us together and what pushes us apart?”
