Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Eminem has released the video for ‘Fall’, the most controversial track on new album, ‘Kamikaze’. The track has already been denounced by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, who sings the song’s hook, for the rapper’s use of a homophobic slur. The word in question is entirely removed from the video version, although the line in which it is contained otherwise remains.

• Alt-J have released the video for the Alchemist and Trooko remix of their track ‘Deadcrush’. The track features vocals from Danny Brown, who also appears in the video.

• SG Lewis has released new single ‘Hurting’, featuring AlunaGeorge. “Aluna has been a part of so many dance records that I love, so I knew I wanted to make a club track with her”, says Lewis. “After we ate burritos and hung out, we made ‘Hurting’ super quickly – the whole process was super natural between the two of us, and she has such an amazing ear for production”.

• Metric have released new track ‘Now Or Never Now’. Their new album, ‘Art Of Doubt’, is out later this month.
