Other notable announcements and developments today…

• John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ album is getting itself a re-issue. The six disc version will feature all sorts of extra stuff, including the original demo of the song ‘Imagine’. You can listen to that right now if you go here though.

• Zedd has released the video for his single, ‘Happy Now’, featuring Elley Duhé.

• Courtney Barnett has released the video for ‘Charity’, taken from her latest album ‘Tell Me How You Really Feel’.

• Soccer Mommy will release a new seven-inch on 5 Oct. It’ll feature a reworked version of her song ‘Henry’ on the A-side, and this cover of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘I’m On Fire’ on the B-side. “I wanted to make a version of ‘I’m On Fire’ that connected with the sadness of the song”, she says. “I think that doing a more stripped down version allowed me to make something that feels emotionally raw”.

• Ahead of upcoming UK shows starting next week, Oh Sees have released a video for ‘Anthemic Aggressor’.

• The shortlist for the Scottish Album of The Year Award is out and features the long-listed albums from Babe, Best Girl Athlete, Franz Ferdinand, Golden Teacher, Karine Polwart with Pippa Murphy, Kobi Onyame, Mogwai, Out Lines, Siobhan Wilson and Young Fathers.
