Post Malone


Big Machine Label Group and Blac Noize Recordings have partnered to jointly sign hip hop and R&B acts worldwide. “To have partners and a distributor that can help us put something up within 24 hours without any question [or] pushback was very important”, says Blac Noize’s Chioke ‘Stretch’ McCoy. “As far as the majors, we love them to death, but sometimes they’re a little bloated and we plan to be thinner and more efficient”.

Ingrooves has signed global distribution deals with Indian musicians Tony Kakkar and Ammy Virk. The agreement with Virk also includes future releases from his Burfi Music record label. “Ammy Virk and Tony Kakkar are extraordinary creative talents, and we are honoured to be a part of their creative journeys”, says Amit Sharma, Ingrooves Country Manager for India. “The independent music market in India is thriving, and we look to empower these artists to succeed locally and find opportunities to grow their success into new territories”.



Post Malone has released new single ‘Cooped Up’, featuring Roddy Rich. His new album, ‘Twelve Caret Toothache’, is out on 3 Jun.

My Chemical Romance have released ‘The Foundations Of Decay’, their first new song since 2014.

As we gear up for the Eurovision grand final tomorrow night, last year’s winner Måneskin have released new single ‘Supermodel’.

Paolo Nutini will release new album ‘Last Night In The Bittersweet’ on 1 Jul. Out now are two new singles, ‘Lose It’ and ‘Through The Echoes’.

Danger Mouse and Black Thought have announced that they will release a collaborative album, titled ‘Cheat Codes’, on 12 Aug. First single, ‘No Gold Teeth’, is out now.

Lethal Bizzle will mark the 20th anniversary of the beginning of his career next month with the release of his new mini-album, ‘Lethal B v Lethal Bizzle’. Out now is new single, ‘Dapper Dan’ featuring Giggs and #A92.

Anna Of The North and Gus Dapperton have teamed up for new single ‘Meteorite’. “‘Meteorite’ is a song that was originally written by Gus”, says Anna of the North. “He asked if I wanted to put a verse on it and collaborate which I, of course, wanted to do – I’m a big fan of him. I love the song and am so happy with how it came out. Our voices work really well together. It’s a song about distance and how energy always connects us”.

Yendry has released new track ‘Ki-Ki’. “The song is about how being independent and making money requires hard work, so most of the time we’re not free to just enjoy life, our families and friends”, she says. “It’s good to make ourselves unavailable in order to take care of us and celebrate life”.

Shygirl will release her debut album, ‘Nymph’, on 30 Sep. From it, this is new single ‘Firefly’.

Gwenno has released ‘Tresor’, the title track of her third solo album, which is set for release on 1 Jul. “‘Tresor’ is a song questioning what makes us human, and the conscious choice that we have to either have a positive or negative impact on our environment and everything around us”, she says.

Max Cooper has released new track ‘Symphony In Acid’. Right now, you can check out an accompanying video and interactive website.

The Hu have released new single ‘This Is Mongol’. The band’s second album is due out later this year.

Rudi Zygadlo has released new single ‘Selotape’. “Sometimes when you’re making music, you hit a dead end and you just start making childish noises into the mic in one last desperate roll of the dice”, he says. “You run the silly noise through a string of effects, straighten up your back, whack in some power chords and voila – this the best tune I’ve ever made”.



Gogol Bordello have announced a Ukraine benefit show at Electric Brixton on 16 Jul. “London always responded raucously to what we do, perhaps because of its own class struggles”, says Ukraine-born frontman Eugene Hütz. “Punk and hardcore is like a cultural-humanitarian corridor between all countries that deals with those issues, and a lot of it developed and grew muscles here. We are always excited to energise that corridor”. Tickets on sale here.
