Kings Of Leon

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Those Kings Of Leon have signed a new deal with WME in the US. They’re already represented by the company for their touring activity everywhere else in the world, so it makes sense. Though don’t tell their previous US reps, CAA, that I said so.

• There’s a new Tune-Yards single out. Yes there is. It’s called ‘ABC 123’.

• The Levellers have announced that they will release a new acoustic album, ‘We The Collective’, on 9 Mar. They’ll also be touring in February and March. Now, here’s new single ‘The Shame’.

• Mr Hudson is back with a new single, ‘Coldplay’, featuring Vic Mensa. “For me ‘Coldplay’ is about that moment when you’re about to give up on someone, but you don’t”, he says, talking about his song, not the band, remember. “You dig deep. You keep working. Even though it might be easier to walk away”.

• Pictish Trail has released the video for latest single ‘Lionhead’. He kicked off a new run of tour dates last night.

• Cults have released a new collaboration with Christopher Owens, ‘I Got Your Message’. The band will play two UK shows in Manchester and London in January.

• Felicita has released new track ‘Hej!’, which comes from her new album and dance piece ‘Soft Power’. The full dance project will be staged at The Barbican on 8 Dec with the Śląsk Song & Dance Ensemble.

• Declan McKenna has been named BBC Music Introducing’s Artist Of The Year. “I’m delighted and honoured”, says McKenna. It’s one of the prizes that will receive further discussion on this Friday’s BBC Music Awards TV show on BBC Two.

• Check out our weekly Spotify playlist of new music featured in the CMU Daily – updated every Friday.
