Harry Styles


Because Music UK and its London Records division have both announced new Managing Directors. Rhian Emanuel moves up from Marketing Director of Because, while Laura Kelly shifts from General Manager of London. Meanwhile, Ed Pearson has been promoted from Marketing Director to SVP Marketing, Dance & Electronic at Because Music UK, and Junior Foster joins London Records as Digital Marketing & Strategy Manager.



Harry Styles has released the video for ‘Satellite’ from his ‘Harry’s House’ album.

Brian Eno and Fred Again will release a collaborative album, titled ‘Secret Life’, this Friday. It is, says Four Tet – who is releasing the album on his Text Records label – “the most beautiful album of 2023”.

Little Dragon will release their latest album ‘Slugs Of Love’ on 7 Jul, which will feature a collaboration with Damon Albarn on its tracklist. Out now is new single ‘Kenneth’. “Together we have developed, replayed, danced to, cried and laughed to this music as it has evolved forwards, backwards, sideways and all around, but now finally as a complete masterpiece”, say the band. “This feels like our finest work yet. We are very proud”.

Poppy has released a cover of Kittie’s 1999 single ‘Spit’, taking the early Deftones-influenced sound of the original and turning it into an electronic nu metal nightmare. In a good way.

Aespa have released new single ‘Welcome To My World’, featuring Nævis. Their new mini-album ‘My World’ will be out 8 May.

Chloe Moriondo has released a new double A-side single, which takes a song from each of her two albums and re-imagines them in the sound of the other album. So ‘Celebrity’ becomes a rock track and ‘I Want To Be With You’ goes pop. “I love both of these songs dearly and created each at such different points in my life”, she says. “They mean a lot to me and I hope you love this cute little crossover that I had such a fun nostalgic time making”.

Sen Morimoto has released new single ‘If The Answer Isn’t Love’. “In the face of imminent climate disaster, war and unending sickness it’s natural to start considering what will remain and what might have made it all worth it”, he says of the song. “I want the sound of my music to reflect that same urgency – instruments warbling and splattered over the beat, melodies tangled and contradicting. I wrote this song about the enduring power of love and the struggle to hang onto that feeling when in crisis”.



More names have been added to the already confusing line-up for the BBC’s Coronation Concert this Sunday. Joining the bill are Olly Murs, Pete Tong Ibiza Classics, Paloma Faith, Nicole Scherzinger, Tiwa Savage, Steve Winwood, pianist Lang Lang and winner of Channel 4’s ‘The Piano’, Lucy. Bollywood star Sonam Kapoor will deliver a spoken word performance and Tom Jones will appear via video message.

Turin Breaks have announced shows in Leeds, Glasgow and London in November and December to mark the 20th anniversary of their second album ‘Ether’. They will perform the album in full at each show. Tickets go on sale on Friday.
