Universal Music has announced an ad sales partnership with media firm Condé Nast which will see the former include video content published by the latter in its Certified Video advertising programme. But there’s more! Oh yes, this is only “the first element of an omni-channel partnership between the companies that will expand to include content and experience”. What fun!



UK media firm Global has appointed Cilesta Van Doorn as its new Chief Marketing Officer. She joins from Virgin Media. “It’s not often that an opportunity comes by that makes your heart skip a beat, and it became clear that Global has everything I could ever wish for, and more”, she says. “I have loved working for Virgin Media and will miss my team dearly, but I feel incredibly grateful to be joining such a special company”.



Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett have announced that they will release their second album together, ‘Love For Sale’, on 1 Oct. “The day we released [previous album] ‘Cheek To Cheek’ in 2014, [Bennett] called me and asked me if I wanted to record another album with him, this time celebrating the songs of Cole Porter”, says Gaga. “I’m always honoured to sing with my friend Tony, so of course I accepted the invitation”. Here’s new single ‘I Get A Kick Out Of You’.

Weezer have released a cover of Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman’. The track is their contribution to upcoming Metallica tribute album ‘The Metallica Blacklist’.

First single ‘Rabbit’ is out now. “Lyrically, ‘Rabbit’ is about the experience of being in an abusive relationship with a powerful person”, says vocalist Nina Ljeti. “Like many people who share this experience, this particular relationship defined the majority of my young adulthood, and I’m still dealing with the emotional consequences of it”.
