Kanye West

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• There are not one but two new MDs at Live Nation Sweden: Anna Sjölund and Therése Liljedahl. Both have been promoted from existing roles within the live giant’s Swedish division.

• Kanye West might be launching his own streaming service, but he almost certainly isn’t.

• Paris Hilton has been threatening to release a second album for years now, even going so far as to release a single through Cash Money in 2014. But more than a decade since the release of the seminal ‘Paris’, there’s still no sign. However, now she tells Time she’s not only working on a new record, in between DJ gigs around the world, but also developing a “whole new sound”.

• Harry Styles has released the video for his track ‘Kiwi’. In what may be an attempt to improve on stage safety at his live shows, it features him being pelted with cakes, rather than the titular fruit. I think Steve Aoki already has that market sewn up, Harry.

• Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova has released a new track, ‘Police State’. It comes with a video starring Chloe Sevigny. Tolokonnikova has also announced her first live shows, which will take place in Germany this month, then the US in December.

• We were so busy being amazed by Kelela’s new video yesterday that we forgot to tell you that there was one. Here’s ‘Blue Light’.

• Drahla have released new track ‘Form Of Luxury’. You can catch them live at the Shacklewell Arms in London tonight.

• Xenoula has shared the video for ‘Luna Man’, taken from her debut album, which is out on 24 Nov.

• It is the Off The Record event in Manchester tomorrow, and the line-up for the festival side – deliberately held back to the last minute – is now live here.

• Goldie’s Metalheadz label has announced a club night at Electric Brixton on 15 Dec. More details here.

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