Adem Holness has been named as the new Head Of Contemporary Music at London’s Southbank Centre. He joins from Arts Council England. “I am beyond THRILLED to be joining the team at the Southbank Centre”, he says. “As a Londoner, the Southbank Centre has always felt like our hub for groundbreaking music and creativity. So I feel deeply honoured to have the opportunity to help it continue to create space for contemporary music that reflects our city, country and international family”.

Giggs has released new single ‘Da Maximum’.

Tove Styrke has released new single ‘Another Broken Heart’. “A friend of mine got dumped and that was when I wrote it”, she says of the song. “I love the dramatic strings together with this beat. It feels both naive and grand at the same time, which I think really suits the song”.

Marika Takeuchi has released new single ‘Beyond’. The track is taken from her new album ‘Dreamer In The Dark’, which is out on 30 Sep. “This is a very personal album I made during my pregnancy”, she says. “It’s music for sleep and relaxation, the reflection of many changes that happened to my life in recent years, and finding peace in the difficult world we live in now”.



Loyle Carner has announced UK and Ireland tour dates in February and March next year, winding up at Wembley Arena in London on 16 Mar. Tickets go on sale on Friday.
