Concord Music Publishing has promoted Jen Hubbard to Director Of Sync And A&R – she having previously been Director Of A&R.



Foo Fighters have released another new track ‘Show Me How’, taken from new album ‘But Here We Are’, which is out next week.

Swedish House Mafia have released new track ‘See The Light’, featuring Fridayy, taken from the soundtrack of EA Sports’ new ‘Formula 1’ video game.

Cat Burns has released new single ‘You Don’t Love Me Anymore’. “It gently speaks about a fear loads of us have in relationships where we’re worried our partner may wake up one day and no longer love us”, she says. “I truly hope this song brings comfort to anyone going through this exact thing right now.”.

OneRepublic have released new single ‘Runaway’.

This year’s UK Eurovision entrant Mae Muller has announced that she will release her debut album ‘Sorry I’m Late’ on 15 Sep. “I’m so excited about the album coming out”, she says. “I can’t wait for the fans that have stuck by me from the beginning to hear the record, and for those that have been so supportive on my Eurovision journey to hear more music. I’m really showing a different side of myself on this album: a vulnerable one, one that I haven’t spoken about before”.

Moneybagg Yo has released new single ‘Ocean Spray’.

Royal Blood have released new single ‘Mountains At Midnight’. New album ‘Back To The Water Below’ is out on 8 Sep.

Ashnikko has released new single ‘Possession Of A Weapon’, taken from her album ‘Weedkiller’, which is out on 25 Aug.

Julian Casablancas And The Voidz have released new single ‘Prophecy Of The Dragon’.

Teenage Fanclub will release their eleventh studio album ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ on 22 Sep. “These songs are definitely personal”, says the band’s Norman Blake. “You’re getting older, you’re going into the cupboard getting the black suit out more often. Thoughts of mortality and the idea of the light must have been playing on our minds a lot. [The songs are] fairly optimistic, there’s an acceptance of a situation and all of the experience that comes with that acceptance”. Out now is new single ‘Foreign Land’.

Piri & Tommy Villiers have released new single ‘Nice 2 Me’. “Relationships can be so complicated but at the end of the day all you really want is to be treated nicely”, says Piri. “Although it seems obvious, I don’t feel like this sentiment is expressed enough and I’m sure a lot of people can relate. We really wanted to capture some DJ Marky-esque Brazilian energy in this track, and Tommy smashed it with the guitar part and percussion. ‘Nice 2 Me’ is a summer banger for all the lovers who just wanna have a nice time!”

Squid have released new single ‘The Blades’. “On the surface it’s a song about police brutality with the last section kind of inspired by ‘The Tell Tale Heart’ by Edgar Allen Poe, although I’ve never read the book, I’ve just seen The Simpsons’ spoof of it”, says vocalist Ollie Judge. “Narratively it follows a police helicopter pilot’s day, ending with him in bed hearing another pilot circling the skies as if he were taunting him”. The band’s new album ‘O Monolith’ is out on 9 Jun.

Lorelle Meets The Obsolete have released new single ‘Invisible’. “We feel ‘Invisible’ is one of our most poppy songs”, says the duo’s Alberto González. “It is also emotionally intense. It came from merging two different ideas. Sometimes we restrain ourselves from certain decisions that might expose ourselves too much, but with this one we went all in. When the song gets too ethereal the disintegrating guitar riff comes in to add some kind of hopelessness”. Their new album ‘Datura’ is out on 16 Jun.

Niki & The Dove and The Greys have teamed up on ‘This Is The Music’, the title track from an upcoming collaborative EP, which is out on 30 Jun. “This is for the young people who think their youth is wasting away because too much is put on their shoulders to fix from earlier generational mess ups”, says Niki & The Dove vocalist Malin. “We wanted the lyrics to acknowledge that feeling. To say: ‘I hear you, I see you, there is a silver lining, you know. I wanna try to soothe you with this music, cause we have a battle ahead of us with an exhausted Earth that gets hotter and hotter but you also have beautiful days in the park ahead of you and many kisses to kiss. Let’s try to make things better’”.



Louis Tomlinson has announced that his Away From Home Festival will this year take place at Lido di Camaiore in Italy on 19 Aug. In addition to a headline set from Tomlinson himself, there will be performances from acts including Blossoms, The Cribs, HotWax and Andrew Cushin. Tickets go on general sale on Monday.
