This signing is just another step towards our goal representing black music, lifestyle and culture globally”. The announcement coincides with the release of Popcaan’s new single, ‘Skeleton Cartier’.



Danny Boyle’s Sex Pistols biopic TV series ‘Pistol’ – based on the autobiography of guitarist Steve Jones – will hit Disney+ on 31 May. Tune in and see if it’s as bad as John Lydon expects it to be.

Warpaint are back with new single ‘Stevie’. “’Stevie’ is a love song, pure and true”, say the band. “Sincere as it comes with a little bit of freak. A cosmic celebration of the thing we all look for in life. And our contribution to one of the most beloved song genres”. Their new album, ‘Radiate Like This’, is out on 6 May.

Everything Everything have released new single ‘I Want A Love Like This’. Their new album, ‘Raw Data Feel’, is out on 20 May.

TV Priest have announced that they will release their new album, ‘My Other People’, on 17 Jun, and have also released new single ‘Bury Me In My Shoes’. “Last year was about reminding ourselves to hang on to good things; to remember you can love and hate in equal measure – that the answers are rarely found by looking backwards”, says frontman Charlie Drinkwater. “‘Bury Me’ was written as a response to that general feeling of unease and creeping dread. A feeling you get from bad news on no breakfast”.



Mxmtoon will play three shows in the UK and Ireland this October. They are Electric Brixton in London on 28 Oct, Manchester’s Club Academy on 29 Oct, and Dublin Academy on 30 Oct. Her new album, ‘Rising’, is out on 20 May.
