Marketing agency Deviate Digital has hired Stef Pascual as Strategy Director and Andra Iszlai as PPC And Social Media Advertising Specialist. Meanwhile, Alex Rusted has been promoted to the role of Senior Digital Marketing Manager. “I am THRILLED to be welcoming Stef and Andra to the team today and very happy to recognise Alex’s hard work with a well-earned promotion”, says CEO Sammy Andrews.



Jonny Greenwood is scoring new Princess Diana biopic ‘Spencer’, according to Deadline.



Ghetts has announced that he will release his new album, ‘Conflict Of Interest’, on 19 Feb. Guests on the record include Ed Sheeran, Stormzy, Giggs, Dave, Skepta, Jaykae, Emeli Sandé, Wretch 32, Pa Salieu and Moonchild Sanelly. That’s quite a lot of guests.

Arlo Parks has released new single ‘Hope’. “The song surrounds isolation, being present in your pain and knowing that you’re not the only one on the planet feeling low”, says Parks. “I think especially in times like these it’s important to focus on the inevitability that things will get better”.

Tune-Yards have announced that they will release new album ‘Sketchy’ on 26 Mar. The latest single from it is ‘Hold Yourself’. “This song is about feeling really betrayed by my parents’ generation, and at the same time, really seeing how we are betraying the future”, says the duo’s Merrill Garbus.

Idris Elba and Connor Price have released new single ‘Courtney Cox’, paying tribute to the ‘Friends’ star. She also features in the video.

Mica Levi has released new album ‘Blue Alibi’. From it, this is ‘Waves’.

Jenny Lewis and Serengeti have released new track ‘Vroom Vroom’. It follows last year’s ‘Unblu’.

Benin City have released new single ‘Freaking You Out’. “I wrote it as a soundtrack to doomscrolling – a ‘doomscrolling disco’, if you will”, says the band’s Joshua Idehen. “Staring at Twitter, constantly refreshing the screen for the next bit of bad news to blanket over me. Worldwide it’s felt like an even more relentless wave of bad news – especially since 2016 – and hella hard to look away or tune out. My verse is a wish that I could”.

Gary, Indiana have released new single ‘Alien 3’. The song, they say, “is a dark tale of violence, defiance and rebellion. The words, almost whispered and monotone, are a declaration of power: I know what you’re doing, the victim says, but I won’t be on my knees anymore”.



Bring Me The Horizon have announced three shows in small venues ahead of their planned arena date in September. In the diary are two shows at Pryzm in Kingston on 16 Sep and then one at Liverpool University’s Mountford Hall on 18 Sep.
