• Grimes has released dystopian new single ‘We Appreciate Power’, featuring regular collaborator Hana.

• Gabrielle Aplin has released new single ‘My Mistake’. “I’ve always found writing a therapeutic escape from real life, but this song gently forced me to be brutally honest”, she says. “This is a song about finding a strange sense of comfort in admitting to yourself that you’re not feeling 100% and completely owning it”. She’s also announced that she will play a Christmas show at Union Chapel in London on 4 Dec.

• Modeselektor have teamed up with Flohio for new single ‘Wealth’. Modeselektor have also announced that they will play London’s Oval Space on 23 Feb.

• Rose Elinor Dougall has released new single ‘Make It With You’. It’s the first track taken from a new album, due out in the spring. “It is in essence a simple love song, but set against the fear of an uncertain, turbulent future”, she says of the record. “When everything feels so unstable and chaotic in the world, how does one reconcile the hopeful but potentially futile gesture of pursuing love or even making art for that matter?”
