Katy B


Live Nation UK has hired Ryan Cornall as a promoter. Moving over from independent company Surprise! You’re Dead, among other things, he’ll now work on Live Nation’s Download festival. “I’m incredibly honoured to be starting at Live Nation and to have the chance to be on the Download team”, he says. “Working on my favourite festival with such a high calibre of bands is a dream come true”.

Warner Music UK has hired Myn Jazeel as SVP of Rhino UK. Joining from Amazon Music, he will officially take up his new role on 29 Nov. “I’ve worked with Warner Music, and indeed Rhino, in many ways throughout my career”, he says. “No matter the role, I’ve always been struck by Rhino’s unwavering commitment to delivering the very best campaigns for its artists – it’s an honour”.



Kylie Minogue loves albums. We all know that. She’s recorded, like, 40 of them, or something. Maybe more. Or maybe it’s less. Let’s just agree it’s “lots”. But would she be willing to publicly say such an uncool thing as “I love albums” in 2021? Heck yes she would. She’s recently been announced as an ambassador for National Album Day on 16 Oct. And to put your money where her mouth is, she’s also reissuing her 2001 album “Fever’.



Katy B is back with another new single – after ‘Under My Skin’, which came out in August. ‘Open Wound’ features Jaz Karis. It’ll appear on her new EP, ‘Peace & Offerings’, which is out on 29 Oct. And, while we’re on the subject, she’s set to play Village Underground in London on 15 Nov.

Arca will release her new album ‘Kick ii’ on 3 Dec. From it, this is ‘Born Yesterday’, featuring Sia.

Asbjørn has released a new version of his 2020 Who Killed Bambi collaboration ‘Be Human’. The track will appear on his new album, ‘Boyology’, which is set for release on 28 Jan.

Crabs have released new single ‘I Gentrify’, featuring Jorja Chalmers.



Billie Eilish has been announced as the first headliner for next year’s Glastonbury, making her the festival’s youngest ever solo headliner. It’ll also be the first time she’s headlined a UK festival.

Following the release of their second single, ‘Wet Dream’, last week, Wet Leg have announced a new run of UK tour dates in April next year. They are currently touring with Inhaler and have dates with Shame and Willie J Healey upcoming, as well as their own sold out headline shows later this month.



Elton John and David Furnish will receive the Artist & Manager Partnership award at this year’s Artist & Manager Awards – Furnish in his role as CEO of Rocket Management. Says MMF Chair Paul Craig: “Elton has been a major musical inspiration throughout my life, as well as an enormous influence professionally. Alongside his artistic brilliance, I’m delighted we can also recognise the immense role played by David Furnish and all the team at Rocket Entertainment”.
