Julian Lennon has signed a new worldwide record deal with BMG, with plans to release a new studio album later this year. “After working on new music for the past few years, I am happy to have found the perfect partner in BMG, to help me bring this work to light”, he says.

Music publisher Third Side Music has extended its worldwide deal with saxophonist Colin Stetson, who also composes music for movies and TV shows as well as working with a plethora of other artists. Remembering how he first saw Stetson play in a tiny bar over ten years ago, TWM co-founder Jeff Waye says: “I had no idea what we’d be able to do for a solo horn player, but I knew TSM had to be involved in something that musically exciting. Turns out there was quite a lot to be done! It’s been an amazing run, and super excited to keep building things alongside Colin, especially with his rise over the last few years as one of the most in-demand film composers”.



The US music division of artist management company YMU has promoted Taren Smith to Senior Manager. “Taren is a fantastic manager – thoughtful, helpful, solution oriented and always willing to go that extra mile for her clients”, says Executive Manager Andrew Goldstone. “I am lucky to work so closely with her, YMU is lucky to have her, and she is incredibly deserving of this promotion to Senior Manager”.

Warner Music in the US has promoted Brigette Boyle to EVP Media Operations. “The transformational progress we’ve made in the past few years has been an incredible journey”, she says. “Media operations is essential to the success of our physical and digital supply chains, ensuring our music and content is in every channel that consumers use”.



Sony Music has partnered with US LGBTQ media advocacy organisation GLAAD to work together to improve representation both within Sony Music and in the wider music industry. “We believe in building an industry that is as diverse as the stories our artists and songwriters tell through their music every day”, says Sony’s Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, Tiffany R Warren. “This partnership will help provide us with the tools to strengthen our commitment to breaking barriers, shaping culture, championing acceptance, and amplifying the voices of the LGBTQ community inside and outside of our walls”.



That Harry Styles has announced that he will release his new album, ‘Harry’s House’, on 20 May. Here’s a trailer.

Disclosure and Raye have teamed up for new track ‘Waterfall’. “Raye is such a dream to work with in the studio”, says Disclosure. “Best way to describe her is as a hook machine! You get the beat rolling and vibes going and she gives you like five chorus melody options straight away… she makes writing the way we do so easy and enjoyable”.

Beabadoobee has announced that she will release her new album, ‘Beatopia’, on 15 Jul. Right now you can listen to new single ‘Talk’. “I wrote ‘Talk’ just after my first album”, she says. “Generally it’s about doing things that aren’t necessarily healthy or great for you but you can’t help indulging”.

Röyksopp have released new track ‘Breathe’, featuring Astrid S. Their new album, ‘Profound Mysteries’, is out on 29 Apr.

Lykke Li is back with new single ‘No Hotel’.

Girlpool have released new single ‘Nothing Gives Me Pleasure’, from new album ‘Forgiveness’, which is out on 29 Apr.
