Gruff Rhys


Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys will publish “a selective memoir in the form of graphics, images and mass communications” on 9 Feb 2021, titled ‘Resist Phony Encores!’ More info here.

Gary Barlow has released the video for his new single ‘Elita’, featuring Michael Buble and Sebastián Yatra.

Ghetts has released the video for his new single with Skepta, ‘IC3’.

Dodie has released new single ‘Cool Girl’. It’s “a song about misplaced anger”, she says. “Stemming from the suppression of communicating your needs in a relationship in order to attempt to be the most chill, cool and loveable. It’s bitter, desperate, frustrated, proud, determined and unhealthy”. Her debut album, ‘Build A Problem’, will be out in March 2021.

Samia has released a full band version of her song ‘Is There Something In The Movies?’ “We’ve been playing this version of ‘Movies’ live for a couple years but opted to put a more stripped down version that’s centred around the vocals on the record”, she says. “Making this video was the first time we got to hang as a band since quarantine started, so it was a special moment for all of us! I love to rock with my band”.

Orla Gartland has released new single ‘Pretending’, the first to be taken from her as-yet-untitled debut album, which is due out next year.



Madness are the latest act added to the 2021 line-up of Forestry England’s Forest Live concert series. They have two shows booked in next June. More details here.

Ezra Furman has announced a livestreamed show on 1 Nov, which will be broadcast from the Boston Museum Of Fine Arts. Details and tickets here.
