Liam Gallagher has released new single ‘All You’re Dreaming Of’. It’s “an instant classic that is perfect for this time of year”, he says modestly. “Considering the year that we’ve all had, I hope this brings back some much needed love and hope. Bing Crosby would have been proud”.

D Double E and Skepta have released new collaboration ‘Don’.

Christine And The Queens and Indochine have released a new single together called ‘3Sex’. The song rework’s Indochine’s 1986 track ‘3e Sexe’.

Saint Jhn has released new single ‘Smack DVD’, featuring Kanye West.

Fred Again… has released new single ‘Julia (Deep Diving)’.

Jamie Cullum has released the video for ‘Hang Your Lights’, from his ‘The Pianoman At Christmas’ album.

Youmeatsix have released new single ‘Suckapunch’. It’s “about reclaiming your own consciousness when you’ve lost it along the way”, says frontman Josh Franceschi. “[The line] ‘rise from the wreckage that you left behind’ is really something that we’ve collectively experienced as a band. It’s a universal statement for recovering from a difficult time when you’ve been left behind”.

Balthazar have released new single ‘You Won’t Come Around’. Their new album, ‘Sand’, is out on 26 Feb.

Roxanne de Bastion has released new single ‘Heavy Lifting’.

Maddox Jones has released new single ‘World’s Gone Mad’. “The song is about being there for each other in these crazy times”, he says. “We’ve obviously been going through a lot this year and I think what’s really kept it all together is having your friends around or having your partner, and just holding each other up”.

Yergurl has released new single ‘Until We Meet Again’. It’s “about breaking up with someone you still love”, she says. “I wrote ‘UWMA’ after a very amicable break up and we were saying that we’d like to get together again if our life situations allow”.

Unknown P has released new single ‘Piers Morgan’. “Unknown P comes to burst the bubble of what the stereotypical drill artist and fan ‘should’ look like”, says comedian Munya Chawawa, the creator of the character. “He’s a pheasant-eating, Brexit-backing Tory who loves the genre as much as the next man and furthermore, he’s a decent drill artist in his own right”.



Chilly Gonzales will live stream ‘A Very Chilly Christmas Special’ on 23 Dec, with guest appearances from Jarvis Cocker, Feist and more. Tickets and details here.

Greg Puciato will perform a livestreamed show, under the title ‘Fuck Content’, on 11 Dec. “This for me is a release, as much as any other, it’s not a livestream, it’s not some way to placate people who aren’t seeing shows, or to keep me busy”, he says. “It’s something we sank our teeth into creatively, as much as a record, and I’m excited for everyone to see and hear what we’ve got to show them”. Tickets here.
