Warner Music in the US has hired Andre Torres as SVP Catalogue Development and Marketing. He joins from Spotify, where he was Head Of Catalogue, Artist & Label Partnerships for North America. “The Warner Music global catalogue team is the top in the business, and they keep finding even more innovative and exciting ways to market their artists and their music, tell their stories, and build their global fanbases”, he says. “I can’t overstate how excited I am to join the Warner Music family”.

Kerrang has named Luke Morton as its new Editor, promoted up from Digital Editor. “As a life-long reader, becoming the editor of Kerrang is a real honour and a privilege”, he says. “After eighteen months of hibernation, I can’t wait for the world to reset itself and for Kerrang to play a vital role in championing the raft of new and exciting talent that we can see emerging right now. Things are changing in alternative music and culture, and Kerrang will be at the forefront”.

Sony Music’s RCA label in the US has promoted Jamie Abzug to SVP and Head Of Publicity. She replaces Mika El-Baz who will leave the company at the end of this month.

Adrian Ciepichał has been named Managing Director of Warner Music Poland. “It’s a great privilege to lead the talented team at Warner Music Poland”, he says. “There’s still so much untapped potential in the Polish music market as we continue our digital transition, it’s a truly exciting time to be in our business”.

Saban Music Group has hired Corey Berkowitz as Head Of Pop & Urban A&R. “For me, it’s important to be a part of every step of the process”, he says. “I’m not just an A&R who’s looking for talent; I’m part of the song’s creation. I understand how to take a song from zero to a hundred. There’s nothing better than helping artists bring their most authentic visions to life”.



Humble Angel Records has launched a new iOS app that monitors songs selected by users and sends a notification when they are added to official Spotify playlists. Download the app here.



Måneskin have released new single ‘Mammamia’, their first new material since their album ‘Teatro d’ira Vol 1’ was released earlier this year. And also since they won Eurovision, which is maybe the more significant thing.

The biggest thing to happen to folk music for years, Nathan Evans, has returned with new single ‘Ring Ding (A Scotsman’s Story)’. “I’m so excited to finally share this brand new single with you all. Myself and the team have worked hard on it and I’m delighted to share the video with you too. It was really fun to make and if anything, I hope it helps anyone who is thinking of going on holiday with someone they just met in a bar… to think twice!”

Young T & Bugsey are back with new single ‘Big Bidness’.

Crossfaith have released new single ‘Feel Alive’. Says frontman Kenta Koie: “‘Feel Alive’ was the first song that we wrote since COVID-19 brought our world down into chaos. Everyone was forced to be alone and divided by the virus, thus we decided to make this song as a hope that cast the shadow”.

BXKS has released new single ‘Bones 2 Pick’. She’s also announced that her new mixtape, ‘Hack The Planet’, will be out on 5 Nov.

Baby Queen has shared the video for ‘Narcissist’ from her album ‘The Yearbook’.
