Ed Sheeran


Ed Sheeran has released the video for his absolutely awful new collaboration with Bruno Mars and Chris Stapleton, ‘Blow’.

Beck has released a new acapella version of his latest single ‘Saw Lightning’, stripping all the Pharrell out of it. At least on the production side. Beck’s new album, ‘Hyperspace’, is due out later this year.

Blood Orange has announced that he will release a new mixtape, titled ‘Angel’s Pulse’, on Friday. “I have a habit through the years of making records that I just give to friends, or on tape to people on the street, or no one”, he says. “Usually this material is made directly after the album I’ve just put out. Somewhat of an epilogue to the thing I’ve made before. This time, I decided to release it”.

The Shins’ Yuuki Matthews has put out a previously unreleased album made with late singer-songwriter Richard Swift under the name Teardrops. “Sometime in April of 2013 … Richard Swift and I decided we’d start a music project together and call it Teardrops after the song ‘Secret Teardrops’ by Martin Rev, who we were both huge fans of”, says Matthews. “I’m happy to finally release this to the world knowing Swift was happy with these mixes as they are”.

Bad Gyal has released new single ‘Santa Maria’, featuring Busy Signal.

Haiku Salut have released the video for new single ‘Firewood’. The track is taken from their new soundtrack to 1926 Buster Keaton movie ‘The General’, which is out on 2 Aug.

Whipped Cream has released a new collaboration with Lick called ‘The Greatest’.



BBC Radio 1 is hosting ‘The Lewis Capaldi Symphony’ on 5 Aug, which will see Capaldi perform alongside the Manchester Camerata Orchestra. He hasn’t actually written a symphony, he’ll just be performing songs from his album ‘Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent’. Still, he says he’s “buzzing”. The show will take place at Croxteth Hall in Liverpool, ticket info here.

Ghost have announced that they will tour the UK in November this year, including a show at Wembley Arena on 22 Nov. Tickets on general sale on Friday.
