Mixcloud has announced that it is waiving its revenue share on the Mixcloud Select monetisation programme for three months, due to the COVID-19 outbreak. New accounts will be given access to this with a three month trial of its Pro tier.



Coronavirus handwashing videos are officially a thing now. Even though, if you don’t yet know how you’re supposed to wash your hands, there’s probably not much point. But anyway, Neil Diamond has re-written ‘Sweet Caroline’ to help you nonetheless.



Donald Glover has released a new album as Childish Gambino, titled ‘3.15.20’. The album briefly appeared online last week, but has now received an official release. Tracks on the new record feature Ariana Grande and 21 Savage.

MIA has released new song ‘OHMNI 202091’ through the Patreon account she launched earlier this year. It’s available to anyone, whether you’re giving her money or not.

Noah Cyrus has released new single, ‘I Got So High That I Saw Jesus’. Insisting that the “song is not about or for one religion or belief system”, she adds: “I was born and raised Christian with strong beliefs and still hold those values. I was smoking weed one night, and had this epiphany, then wrote the song, hence the title”.

Jada has released new single ‘Nudes’. She says: “‘Nudes’ is about expressing and exposing yourself to someone you have a romantic and/or sexual relationship with. Being honest with your feelings, with your attraction to the other, and with your sexuality. And then being left on ‘read'”.

The Hell have announced that, to mark the 666th day since the release of their debut album ‘You’re Listening To The Hell’, they will release rarities collection ‘Now (That’s What I Call Old Shit & Stuff) 666’ next month. It includes new track ‘Cheers (You Dicks)’, which is probably mainly of interest if you’re one of the people thanked on it.



Organisers of the Polar Music Prize in Sweden have announced that the ceremony to hand Diane Warren and Anna Netrebko their awards has now been postponed to 21 May 2021. “The most important consideration for us, and the top priority, is the safety and wellbeing of the Polar Music Prize Laureates, the Swedish Royal Family, artists, musicians, guests and all the staff involved”, says awards boss Marie Ledin. “We look forward to an extra special event in 2021”.
