• Self-Esteem – aka Rebecca Lucy Taylor from Slow Club – has released new single ‘Rollout’. “In my last relationship I used to joke that I couldn’t write about her because we never had any problems”, she says of how the song came about. “And then one day she just left, and I was, like, ‘shit’. But then I was also so happy in a really sadistic way because I had something to write about”.

• Boy George and Culture Club have released another track from their upcoming reunion album. This is ‘Life’.

• Au/Ra has released new single ‘Emoji’. “‘Emoji’ to me, is about an online relationship/friendship where someone is afraid to show the other person who they really are – in fear of disappointing them and ruining the illusion”, she says. “Or vice versa, where someone is afraid to find out who the other person is”.

• With her new album ‘Pastoral’ out today, Gazelle Twin has announced a show at Somerset House in London’s Lancaster Rooms on 16 Nov. From the album, this is ‘Hobby Horse’.
