Ministry Of Sound has signed LF System. “We’re absolutely buzzing to be working with such an iconic label for the dance music scene and it feels like the perfect home to be releasing our new music on”, say the duo. “And finally, we are able to share our new single with the world and hope that you love it as much as we do!” What’s that? A new single? Yes, the first release under the deal is ‘Dancing Shoes (Take Me Higher)’.

BMG has acquired the artist royalties associated with nine Pointer Sisters albums released between 1978 and 1988, as well as 100% of their US royalties, including from their 1982 song ‘I’m So Excited’. “I am so excited and the whole company is so excited to have a chance to work with these incredible copyrights and beautiful music”, says Thomas Scherer, BMG’s President Of Repertoire & Marketing for New York and LA. Don’t know if you saw what he did there.



Kim Petras has announced that she will release her debut album ‘Feed The Beast’ on 23 Jun.

Binki has released new single ‘Doomsday’. “The title says a lot about this song”, he says. “’Doomsday’. It’s like, would you want to know the day the world’s gonna end? I think uncertainty is the scariest thing in the world. People are completely paralysed by it. I think you can either live your life based in fear or based in love. It would be psychotic to not be scared of anything, but I think as much as you can, you should let love lead you”.

Snayx have released a new double A-side single featuring the songs ‘Boys In Blue’ and ‘HANG’. “The double A-side is a social commentary of recent times”, says vocalist Charlie Herridge. “It’s a criticism of the power structures that control and govern us and the hypocrisy they can be steeped in. It’s our expression of anger and dissidence”.



McFly have announced that they will play an intimate show at The Underworld in London on 8 Jun to launch their new album ‘Power To Play. “We’re buzzing to be launching ‘Power To Play’ at such an iconic venue by doing the thing that inspired it the most – playing live”, say the band. “This will be the first time playing the new songs for anyone other than ourselves, we can’t wait to see the crowd reaction. It’s going to be a sweaty one!” Larger scale shows will take place in the autumn. Tickets for the Underworld show are on sale now.

Overmono have announced that they will play their biggest ever headline shows in the UK and Ireland this October, finishing with a performance at the Roundhouse in London on 25 Oct. Tickets go on general sale on Friday.
