FUGA has announced a deal that will see it provide content delivery services to the Beggars Group. Merlin members like Beggars need partners to help them deliver their music to digital services. Says FUGA boss Pieter van Rijn: “As one of the most influential label groups in both the UK and global independent music, Beggars Group is an incredibly exciting addition to our international clients, with FUGA now a route to market for a significant portion of the world’s new releases”.

Tempo Music – an affiliate of Providence Equity Partners that invests in music rights – has done a deal with Korn, acquiring a majority stake in the recording and song rights on two of the band’s albums: 2005’s ‘See You On The Other Side’ and their untitled 2007 album. The investment firm has also acquired royalty rights on the band’s ‘MTV Unplugged’ record. Korn are “still creatively ambitious and hardworking after almost 30 years together, which is hugely inspiring”, says Tempo Music boss Josh Empson.

The Round Hill Music Royalty Fund has announced a deal to administer the neighbouring rights income (or performing rights income, if you prefer) on the recordings of former Supertramp members Dougie Thomson, Bob Siebenberg and John Helliwell. “As a rock fan and guitarist myself I am really pleased to announce this latest deal”, declares Round Hill CEO Josh Gruss.



Universal Music Publishing China has opened a new office in Shanghai. “About a century ago, a group of modern music companies were born by the shore of Huang Pu River in the great city of Shanghai and made history”, says MD Joe Fang. “Today, we have established a new Shanghai office with the industry’s finest team, top-tier creative space, and ready to serve a new generation of Chinese musicians who are eager to demonstrate their cultural confidence to the world via music”.



Kylie Minogue has released new single ‘Kiss Of Life’, featuring Jessie Ware. The track is taken from the special ‘Guest List Edition’ of her ‘Disco’ album, which is out on 12 Nov.

Radiohead have released ‘Follow Me Around’, a previously unreleased track that will be included in their upcoming ‘Kid A Mnesia’ boxset.

Cat Power has released ‘Pa Pa Power’, a cover of a song by Ryan Gosling’s Dead Man’s Bones band.

Wesley Gonzalez is back with new single ‘Taste Of Something New’. His new album, ‘Wax Limousine’, is set for release on 25 Mar and he will play Electrowerkz in London on 25 Nov.



Machine Head and Amon Amarth have announced a co-headline UK arena tour in September 2022. It will be, says Machine Head’s Robb Flynn, “the most devastating night of your metal lives”. Tickets go on sale on Friday.

The Enemy have announced that they will reunite in September and October next year for UK tour dates. “2022 marks the fifteenth anniversary of [debut album] ‘We’ll Live And Die In These Towns’ and six years since we all played together”, say the band. “What we weren’t expecting was quite how excited we would all be to play together again. There’s a lot of anticipation and excitement from the three of us to go out and play, just us, the songs and the fans. We really can’t wait!” Tickets go on sale on Friday.
