Artist News Gigs & Festivals One Liners Releases

One Liners: Radiohead, Rico Nasty, Kate Nash, more

By | Published on Wednesday 8 September 2021



Radiohead have released a previously unreleased track from their ‘Kid A’ and ‘Amnesiac’ sessions, called ‘If You Say The Word’. Why? Because they’re releasing a new 21st anniversary compilation, pulling together those two albums plus another album’s worth of unreleased stuff from those sessions. ‘Kid A Mnesia’ is out on 5 Nov.

Rico Nasty has whacked five unreleased tracks up on SoundCloud for you to hear. If that seems like something you’d be interested in, this is the place.

Kate Nash has returned with new single ‘Horsie’. “The song was the first I wrote in the pandemic”, she says. “It’s lacklustre, it’s barely lifting the pencil, it’s being lonely, about missing those lost and curling up in that heavy blanket and the comfort of well practiced sadness. This was the first song that inspired the new record and I really just wanted to not try and lean into whatever I was feeling and thinking, be as honest as possible and I found so much beauty and comfort in that”.

Muna have teamed up with Phoebe Bridgers (who also happens to be boss of their label) for new single ‘Silk Chiffon’.

With his new solo album out next month, Hayden Thorpe has released new single ‘Metafeeling’. The album, ‘Moondust For My Diamond’, is out on 15 Oct.

Yard Act are going to release their debut album on 7 Jan 2022. It’ll be called ‘The Overload’. Coincidentally, they’ve just put out a new single, also called ‘The Overload’.

Yumi Zouma are back! Not only that, they’ve made some new music. Look, here’s their new single ‘Give It Hell’. Also, like everyone, they will be touring the UK in March next year.

Creeper’s Ian Miles has announced that he will release his debut solo album, ‘Degradation, Death, Decay’, on 15 Oct. Here’s new single, ‘Truest Blue’. He’ll also play a launch show at God’s House Tower in Southampton on 8 Oct.

Lockjaw Records will release ‘Black Lives Matter: Punk Compilation’ on 24 Sep, raising money for Black Minds Matter in the UK and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund in the US. Bands who have contributed tracks include The Skints, The Subways, Big Joanie, Belvedere and Tokky Horror.

Piglet, aka songwriter Charlie Loane, has released new single ‘Dan’s Note’. “I wrote this song during one of the lockdowns after finding a note my friend Dan left me which had quotes from a poem he liked”, he says. “The lyrics include bits that he wrote, and bits of things he quoted, as well as some words from me”.
