Liam Gallagher


BDi Music has signed singer songwriter Aimée to a worldwide publishing deal. “I am extremely grateful and excited to be part of BDi Music”, she says. “They have such great enthusiasm and excitement, which makes me feel really heard and appreciated. I am so excited for this next chapter in my career with such an incredible team. Big things are coming! Watch this space”.



Organisers of the Drake Yolanda Award funding scheme have announced the ten emerging artists who will receive grants this year, and they are: Jerub, Kymara, Erica Manzoli, B-ahwe, John Dhali, Renato Paris, Finn Doherty, Ceitidh Mac, Ana De Llor and Loba. The award is run by entrepreneur/philanthropist James JP Drake and saxophonist/broadcaster Yolanda Brown.



Liam Gallagher has teamed up with mental health charity Talk Club to create a video for his song ‘Too Good For Giving Up’. “We all know someone affected by suicide which sadly seems to be at an all-time high”, he says. “I’ve lost many people far too early and it’s important to talk. I’m really pleased to be able to help in anyway with this song and will be partnering with Talk Club on my track ‘Too Good For Giving Up’”.

Lil Baby has released new single ‘Heyy’. His new album, ‘It’s Only Me’, is out this week.

Caroline Polachek has released ‘Non Voglio Mai Vedere Il Sole Tramontare’, taken from Kurt Cobain-inspired opera ‘Last Days’, which is based on the 2005 Gus Van Sant film of the same name.

Sault have released new ten minute single ‘Angel’. The group recently hinted that a new album, called ‘Ten’, is on the way.

Dagny has released new single ‘Highs And Lows’. “[It’s] one of the most raw songs I’ve ever written”, she says. “You could say it’s about unconditional love – about steadily standing by someone’s side through all the highs and the lows, all the easy and the challenging. I hope this song is gonna feel like a warm hug for someone who needs it”.

Amy Shark has released new single ‘Only Wanna Be With You’. “It’s got so many pop, Amy Shark elements to it, but there’s this gritty, fuzzy punk guitar that comes in“, she says. “I used to be really scared of guitars and maybe just recently, with what I’ve been listening to, it’s brought it to life. I’ve gone with my gut a lot more on this song and the whole new era”.

Albertine Sarges has released new single ‘Deep Well’. “This is the slowest and also the longest song I ever put out”, she says. “I guess the message is: radical deceleration and contemplation”. Her new EP, ‘Family Of Things’, is out on 25 Nov. She’ll also be touring the UK next month, and you should absolutely go and see her play.
