Flying Lotus

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Funnel Music – a new-fangled music company that, and I quote, “addresses the many issues of artist development by focusing on the resource gap that plagues the artist development process through technology and the unique community it is building” – has appointed Tim Delaney as its CEO. He’s previously worked in labels, live, ticketing and management, so I guess if anyone should know about the full artist development process, it’s Tim.

• Flying Lotus has released the video for new single ‘More’, featuring Anderson Paak.

• WSTRN have released new single ‘Medusa’, featuring Unknown T.

• Sebastian has released his first single for eight years, ‘Run For Me’, featuring Gallant. “We made it in one day, in one take without stopping”, says Sebastian. “The melody evolved wherever it seemed to want to go all by itself. I tracked Gallant down for the vocals because he shared the same emotions as the song and I wasn’t disappointed. The song really came into its own when the vocals were laid down on the track”.

• Black Midi have announced that they will release their debut album, ‘Schlagenheim’, on 21 Jun. From it, this is ‘Crow’s Perch’.

• Angel Olsen has announced that she will play the Hammersmith Apollo on 11 Feb next year. Tickets go on sale on Friday.

• P Money is set to headline the Islington Academy on 20 Jun. His new album, ‘Money Over Everyone III’, is set for release on 31 May.

• Richard Hawley is set to tour the UK in October, in support of new album ‘Further’, including a show at London’s Roundhouse on 17 Oct. Tickets go on general sale this Friday.
