Universal Music’s Virgin Music Label & Artist Services will begin the new year by launching a new division in the West Balkans. It will be run by Nikola Jovanovic, who has been given the joint job titles of VP of Virgin Music Label & Artist Services, Western Balkans and Head Of Society Relations, Universal Music Western Balkans. “I have been working with artists and indie labels from this region for many years, constantly pushing to bring the necessary change to the regional music industry, to enable young talents and entrepreneurs to make a living out of their creativity and art”, he says.

Copyright hub ICE has announced Peter de Mönnink as its new CEO. He will officially take up the position in March. “Nothing has proven more engaging than music in our digital lives”, he says. “At the same time, the transition of content rights and their value to the ever-expanding footprint of global digital markets is an ongoing challenge”. To that end, he adds, he is looking forward to working “with so many quality people and help to grow and shape the business towards a sustainable leading global position and create success for all stakeholders”.



George Harrison‘s ‘My Sweet Lord’ has a new celeb-packed video. Don’t worry, they’re not singing it. They’re just wandering around in some sort of ‘Men In Black’ pastiche. It’s all in aid of the song’s 50th anniversary. Apparently this all makes sense to someone.

Alesso and Katy Perry are going to release a single together on 29 Dec. Here’s a trailer.

Boys Noize and Kelsey Lu have released new single ‘Love & Validation’.

Eels have released the video for recent single ‘The Magic’. Their new album, ‘Extreme Witchcraft’, is out on 28 Jan.

Alewya – who you will have heard on our On The CMU Stereo 2021 playlist – has released the video for her track ‘Channel High’. It is taken from her ‘Panther In Mode’ EP.
