Gucci Mane


Gucci Mane will release new album ‘A Breath Of Fresh Air’ on 13 Oct. Out now is new single ‘Bluffin’, featuring Lil Baby.

Rick Astley has announced that he will release new album ‘Are We There Yet?’ on 6 Oct. “Now, that phrase has multiple meanings”, he says of the title. “Are we there yet in my musical ambitions? Am I done with my career? Have we arrived? Or are we still travelling?” Out now is new single ‘Dippin My Feet’. He will also play two nights at the Royal Albert Hall in London in November, followed by UK tour dates in February and March.

K-pop boyband NCT Dream have released new single ‘Broken Melodies’. Their new album ‘ISTJ’ is out on 17 Jul.

((( O ))) will release new album ‘((( 4 )))’ on 27 Aug. Out now is new single ‘Sanctuary’. “This song explains the discovery of our ability to harness the power of our menstrual cycles as superpowers through our ‘inner seasons’”, she says. “It’s about tuning into my own inner rhythms as our guide for unravelling the layers of album ‘((( 4 )))’ for the rest of this year – finding solace and harmony, utilising the power of ritual and inner cycles as a portal to deeper connection and understanding”.

Slowdive will release new album ‘Everything Is Alive’ on 1 Sep. Out now is lead single ‘Kisses’. The band are set to play what is somehow their first ever Glastonbury performance this Sunday.

Samantha Urbani has released new single ‘More Than A Feeling’. “I wrote the vocal to something an ex was playing, just in my head. It became this weird solo conversation, a one-sided collaboration”, she says. “It sat on the back burner, but the emotion remained timeless enough to come back to. Years later I was falling in love, which was a cool and safe place to be, finishing a song about the opposite”.

Kvelertak have released new single ‘Skonggangr’, taken from their new album ‘Ending’, which is out on 8 Sep. “It’s a song about Helmut Von Botnlaus, whose life history and written records have inspired many of the lyrics on the album”, say the band. “It all takes place in the heathlands and mountain area of the southwest coast of Norway, where Helmut was born. This is where he spent most of his secluded life, living off what the earth can provide him with while fighting anyone trying to destroy the surrounding nature”.

Lauren Auder has announced that she will release her long-awaited debut album ‘The Infinite Spine’ on 21 Jul. Out now are two new tracks from it: ‘Hawthorne81’ and ‘Atoms’.



Fred Again will play four nights at London’s Alexandra Palace in September. Tickets go on sale on 27 Jun.
