Round Hill Music


Round Hill Music has confirmed that it will IPO on the London Stock Exchange, seeking to raise in the region of £287 million to further boost its catalogue of music rights through a series of acquisitions. According to The Times, founder Josh Gruss has admitted that he is seeking to capitalise on renewed interest in investment circles in music rights, in part boosted by the efforts of Merck Mercuriadis and his Hipgnosis Songs Fund, which has been busy hyping up the value of music IP to City types in recent years.



Angel Olsen has posted a performance of a new eleven minute song, called ‘Time Bandits’.

Having originally released it as part of the Adult Swim Singles Club two years ago, Julia Holter has now made her song ‘So Humble The Afternoon’ available across all the digital platforms. “In ‘So Humble The Afternoon’, recorded a few years back, I was immersing myself in the woozy warmth of the synth and mellotron timbres”, she says.

Soho Rezanejad has released new single ‘Half The Shore’. Her new album, ‘Perform and Surrender’, is out on 4 Dec.

Bleached have released new single ‘Stupid Boys’. “This started out as a jokey song, something light-hearted, meant to be danced to… or so I thought”, says the band’s Jennifer Clavin. “After the most recent flood of ‘me too’ call-outs around men in the music scene, I returned to this song and felt somewhat surprised, because the lyrics actually aren’t so light-hearted, and they directly refer back to experiences related to the reckoning we just saw go down”.

Attawalpa has released new single ‘Done Hanging On’. The song, he says, “is simply a track about letting go. I wrote the song on my dad’s piano. It was quite emotional as I was listening to a lot of Elliot Smith’s ‘XO’ at the time. I then took it to my sonic confidants Matt Allchin [co-producer] and Henry Danowski [drummer] and we made it pop”.



Liam Payne has announced that he will play a Halloween themed livestream show on 31 Oct. “I’m loving being able to continue to connect with all of my fans during this time, wherever they may be”, he says. “I’m a huge fan of Halloween, so can’t wait to party with you all in a few weeks”. Details here.

Rina Sawayama has announced a show at the Roundhouse in London on 17 Nov 2021. Tickets go on sale tomorrow.
